Fracking’s rise in U.S.
inspires the world

Washington Times, by Ben Wolfgang

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 1/24/2013 11:05:33 PM

Fracking is going global. The U.S. energy industry clearly still leads the way on the revolutionary drilling method that has upended global energy markets, but the rest of the world is beginning to catch up as nations seek to replicate American success in oil and natural gas development. Taking the lead in Europe, Poland plans to begin producing shale gas using hydraulic fracturing, commonly known as fracking, as soon as next year, the country’s treasury minister said recently. More than 100 exploration concessions to more than two dozen companies have been awarded, and the Polish State Geological Institute

A Must Read for the Headline alone...

FTA: Saudi Arabia, in particular, has reason to examine U.S. drilling success. The International Energy Agency recently reported that American oil production will surpass Saudi Arabia’s to become the globe’s single biggest producer of oil and natural gas as soon as 2020, putting North America on track to becoming energy-independent.

Doncha´ just love it!

I live in San Antonio and all you have to do is drive south of here to see, smell and taste commerce - good, old American commerce. An article in the San Antonio Express News stated that this year alone, energy exploration (read "fracking") will pump $28 billion dollars into our S. Texas economy. Why on God´s green Earth would we not exploit this to eveyone´s benefit?

You have to know that Obama and his Marxist allies will eventually shut down fracking. They want a poor peasant population to grovel at their feet for whatever crumbs the royalty in Washington, DC decided to distribute. Using the shoddiest "science" fracking will be declared a poison to the environment.

The peasants won´t get their oil. Freeze in your homes and let your car rust in the driveway.

It is my belief that the only way we defeat the socialists is with rampant capitalism. If you read "The Forgotten man", this shows that we defeated FDR´s run toward socialism with growth. It can be done again. We need to get beyond their attempt to tax capitalists into quitting and just keep developing businesses. The public loves US economic success. Once these oil or gas fields are up and running, they will not be able to stop them. Same with other businesses. We need to stop whining about taxes and outplay and outwit them with good old fashioned risk and capitalism.

Fracking isn´t new to the Texas oil fields. I began fracking in the Austin Chalk play in 1980. What is new is applying the directional drilling and hydraulic fracturing techniques to formations that in the past were considered source rock but not reservoir rock. The Eagle Ford Shale is a prime example as it was long thought (correctly) to be the source rock for oil and gas found in Austin Chalk fracture zones; however, its physical characteristics, containing fine grained clay minerals that expand when wet, made it unsuitable for production. It had been the development of drilling fluid technology that has unleashed the potential of the shales as productive reservoirs. Fracking is but a completion technique that creates interconnected fractures in the rock formations to enhance permeability.

I live in a community where there is fracking. The major complaint I have is that the fracking, which happens here in the countryside, also requires very large trucks. I travel country roads a lot. Dealing with those huge trucks on two lane roads with no shoulders is a major chore. Having said that, it is still a small price to pay considering all of the money fracking has brought to local communities.

In order for an international currency (through IMF) and an international government (through the UN - with a wholesale change of the current cast of characters) to be accepted, America below the elite level must first be impoverished. The international currency will buy a loaf of bread; dollars no longer will.

Spaceflight in the age of Obama:
Star Trek’s Galileo shuttlecraft unveiled
Washington Times, by Daniel Wattenberg    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 7/31/2013 10:42:31 PM     Post Reply
It may not fully make up for President Obama’s gutting of America’s manned spaceflight program, but for now it will have to do. Star Trek’s Galileo, the fiberglass shuttlecraft featured on the “The Galileo Seven” episode of the classic ’60s sci-fi series, was officially unveiled Wednesday at Space Center Houston, the official museum/visitor center of NASA´s Johnson Space Center, where it will remain on permanent display. If nothing else, the Galileo development program proved far less costly than NASA’s $9 billion next-generation space program, Constellation, which fell victim to Mr. Obama’s budget ax in 2010.

President Obama, who extolled the value of middle-class construction jobs during nearly five years of recession and recovery, has changed his tune to borderline contempt for the blue-collar jobs needed to build the Keystone oil pipeline. In a speech in Chattanooga, Tenn., Mr. Obama actually chuckled derisively Tuesday when he mentioned that Republican lawmakers are promoting the pipeline project for the thousands of jobs it would create over two years. “They keep on talking about this — an oil pipeline coming down from Canada that’s estimated to create about 50 permanent jobs,”

Two New York Times reporters recently posited for President Obama this grim scenario: Low growth, high unemployment, and growing income inequality become "the new normal" in the nation he leads. "Do you worry," the journalists asked him, "that that could end up being your legacy simply because of the obstruction ... and the gridlock that doesn´t seem to end?" Obama´s reply was telling. "I think if I´m arguing for entirely different policies and Congress ends up pursuing policies that I think don´t make sense and we get a bad result," he said, "it´s hard to argue that´d be my legacy.

A military court Tuesday convicted Army Pfc. Bradley Manning of violating the Espionage Act for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified documents to WikiLeaks, a verdict that legal analysts say likely will have a chilling effect on others considering revealing government secrets. While Manning, 25, was acquitted of the most serious charge — aiding the enemy, which carried a penalty of life in prison without the possibility of parole — he still faces up to 136 years in prison when he is sentenced at Fort George G. Meade, Md. The sentencing hearing, which starts Wednesday

A Saudi Arabian activist said his government provided Egypt´s military with $1 billion to stage a coup against former president Mohammed Morsi and install interim leadership. Political activist Mujtahid bin Hareth bin Hammaam, who operates an active Twitter campaign aimed at exposing corruption in the Saudi government, said Gen. Abdel Fattah el-Sisi received the money on July 3, United Press International reported. The reason for the payoff, he alleged, was so Egypt’s transfer of power would flow smoothly. But now the Saudi government isn’t sure it spent its money wisely, he said.

Republican lawmakers blasted a proposal by President Obama on Tuesday to cut corporate taxes in exchange for more spending on job-training programs, calling it a revival of a failed plan that would raise taxes initially. “It’s just a further-left version of a widely panned plan he already proposed two years ago — this time, with extra goodies for tax-and-spend liberals,” said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican. “The tax hike it includes is going to dampen any boost businesses might otherwise get to help our economy.” Mr. Obama visited an Amazon.com distribution center in Chattanooga, Tenn.,

In a July 19 letter to Sen. Rand Paul, Stephen D.

The FBI authorized the use of drones in three other criminal cases but didn’t deploy them.

President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans.

I never thought the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case deserved nearly the attention it got. But reasonable people can disagree about that. What strikes me as unconscionable, however, is the way the supposedly objective media have not only sensationalized a tragedy but at times appear to deliberately bend the facts to fit a desired story line. Maybe it started with the use of pictures of a younger Martin or with the sudden embrace of the term "white Hispanic" to describe Zimmerman in order to more easily paint him as a racist. NBC News was the most egregious offender
