Companies announce strong
results from Gulf appraisal well

Houston Chronicle, by Jeannie Kever

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 3/19/2013 10:44:20 PM

Anadarko Petroleum Corp. and ConocoPhillips said late Tuesday that their Shenandoah-2 well in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico could prove to be one of their largest discoveries in the Gulf. The well in the Shenandoah Basin has more than 1,000 feet of net oil pay, a measure of the vertical thickness of a hydrocarbon-bearing area. Bob Daniels, Anadarko senior vice president for deepwater and international exploration, said the find is of higher quality than those previously discovered in the Lower Tertiary. “With ownership in the successful Shenandoah wells, the adjacent Yucatan prospect and the very encouraging

This is great! Imagine the technology to do this.
Meanwhile we have people who hate people who create instead of destroy running things in this country.

FTA: The Shenandoah-2 well, located in Walker Ridge block 51, was drilled to 31,405 feet in about 5,800 feet of water, according to the company.

This well was delayed some 2 years by two moratoriums and the permitorium. Maybe by the end of his term, production from this and Alaskan finds might actually be increasing the amount of oil produced from federal lands. Keep in mind that the production from any well decays with time.

Obama likes to claim credit for us depending less on middle east oil but how much of it is 8 million less workers on the road because of his idiotic economic policies?

How much of it is due to increased energy production on private land in this country? Something he despises.

Obama wants to use this claim to act a springboard for convincing people the less dependence is because of his green energy policies which have proven to be a failure,time and time again.

Everybody knows the saudis have the deepest pockets on the planet. They´re not about to give up their market share or decrease the price of a barrel,no matter how much new oil goes on the market,for example in Iraq.

In order to accomplish this,the saudis have to destroy the concept of supply and demand and instead buy off the right politicians,so the floodgates for their oil keeps going. Guess who the biggest top dog is they have to pay off? Who´s minding the store on this phony campaign operation Obama has set up,when he can´t run for reelection?

The Chicago thug operation loves payoff schemes just to stay in practice.

This is why I´m keeping an eye on Dr. Carson if he decides to get in the mix.Has nothing to do with policies at this point but how refreshing it would be to have an honest president, that in itself would cause a dramatic change in this country.

If the truth is bad news,people need to know about it,not have smoke blown up heir butts by the ruling class elites.

All the more reason for the EPA and the WH to shut it down. It would compete with his wasteful solar panels, windmills, and non-performing electric cars which commit spontaneous combustion in your garage.

Obama’s rough 2013
prompts a new blueprint
Washington Post, by Scott Wilson    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 1/25/2014 11:07:20 PM     Post Reply
An internal White House assessment concludes that President Obama must distance himself from a recalcitrant Congress after being badly damaged last year by legislative failures, a government shutdown and his own missteps. Obama has said that his fraught relationship with Congress, especially after Republicans won the House in 2010, complicated his ability to promote his agenda. But for the first time, following what many allies view as a lost year, the White House is reorganizing itself to support a more executive-focused presidency and inviting the rest of the government to help. The new approach comes after weeks of

President Obama revived his internal White House political operation Friday in preparation for the 2014 mid-term elections, naming longtime aide David Simas as director of political strategy and outreach. Mr. Simas, who played a key role in the president’s reelection campaign, served much of last year in the West Wing coordinating the administration’s message on Obamacare. He will become the president’s point person for working with Democrats on the midterms, which Mr. Obama has called crucial to implementing his agenda over his final two years in office. In 2009-1010, Mr. Simas served as White House political director. Prior to joining

Google’s Gmail users across the United States, Canada and Europe were impacted when their feee email service went down for about an hour Friday afternoon. The service resumed shortly after 3 p.m. Earlier, Google released a statement: “We’re investigating reports of an issue with Gmail. We will provide more information shortly.” The email service outage prompted the Twitter hashtag #gmail to start trending almost immediately. “For everyone worrying about the #Gmail outage, rest assured that your messages are safely being restored by the NSA,” joked Twitter user Ian Gertler.

Democrats see same-sex marriage
as issue that will mobilize voters
Washington Post, by Juliet Eilperin    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 1/24/2014 10:12:26 PM     Post Reply
Public opinion on same-sex marriage has shifted so dramatically in recent years that Democratic groups now see the issue as a critical way to mobilize voters in a slew of races up and down the ballot. Just a decade ago, widespread opposition to gay marriage did just the opposite, allowing Karl Rove to mobilize conservatives in 13 states and help reelect George W. Bush as president. The changing political dynamics were on full display this week as Virginia Attorney General Mark R. Herring (D) announced he would not defend the state’s ban on same-sex marriage on the grounds that it was unconstitutional. Herring won a close election

Stop me if you’ve heard this before. A conservative group applies for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status with the IRS in full compliance of the law, but gets jerked around for a couple of years in a process that should just take a few months. The IRS tax-exempt unit then starts demanding private information that isn’t germane to the application, but which worries members about just why the IRS would want this kind of information about opponents to the current administration. According to the Obama administration, this is old news from 2010-12, and the targeting of political opponents by the IRS stopped

Dinesh D´Souza, a best selling author and creator of the documentary "2016: Obama´s America" has been indicted for election fraud and causing false statement to be made to the FBI. The indictment alleges that D´Souza reimbursed some people for giving campaign contributions to a Senate candidate from New York. The amount that was allegedly donated was $20,000. Reuters: Federal law in 2012 limited primary and general election campaign contributions to $2,500 each, for a total of $5,000, from any individual to any one candidate.

Fixated as we Americans are on Canada’s three most attention-getting exports — polar vortexes, Alberta clippers and the antics of Toronto’s addled mayor — we’ve somewhat overlooked a major feature of Canada’s current relations with the United States: extreme annoyance. Last week, speaking to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Canada’s foreign minister calmly but pointedly complained that the United States owes Canada a response on the Keystone XL pipeline. “We can’t continue in this state of limbo,” he sort of complained, in what for a placid, imperturbable Canadian passes for an explosion of volcanic rage. Canadians may be preternaturally measured

Little-known aspect of Medicaid now

Add this to the litany of scary but improbable things people are hearing could happen because of the new federal health-care law: After you die, the state could come after your house. The concern arises from a long-standing but little-known aspect of Medicaid, the state-federal program that provides health coverage to millions of low-income Americans. In certain cases, a state can recoup its medical costs by putting a claim on a deceased person’s assets. This is not an issue for people buying private coverage on online marketplaces. And experts say it is unlikely that the millions of people in more

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell stormed the national stage in 2009 as symbols of the GOP’s anti-Obama momentum, but with both now under federal investigation, Republicans’ unity is shattered and strategists and fellow officeholders struggle to contain the damage. Mr. McDonnell was indicted Tuesday, while Mr. Christie is facing a state investigation over “Bridgegate” and a federal probe over New Jersey’s use of Superstorm Sandy emergency response money — money that the governor badgered Congress to give him. Each were political stars and were reportedly on the short list to be the 2012 vice

Prosecutors laid out a startling corruption case against former Virginia governor Robert F. McDonnell and his wife, but the government faces a high bar in proving that the couple committed a crime, legal experts said Wednesday. To make its case, the government must show beyond a reasonable doubt that McDonnell (with wife Maureen as co-conspirator) struck a corrupt bargain with a Richmond businessman who lavished $165,000 in cash and gifts on the McDonnell family. They must deliver evidence that the former governor agreed to provide his official help to Star Scientific chief executive Jonnie R. Williams in exchange for his

THE OUTSIDE world seems to have grown numb to reports of atrocities from Syria — “barrel bombs” dropped on schools, Scud missiles aimed at apartment houses, blockaded neighborhoods where children die of starvation. But a report released Monday by a panel of international jurists ought to * some consciences. Based on 55,000 images smuggled out of the country, mostly by a defector from the military police, it reports the murder of some 11,000 men detained by the Syrian government between 2011 and last August. Many of the bodies in the photographs show signs of torture; some are missing eyes. More

While the administration publicly expresses full confidence in its health care law, privately it fears one part of the system is so flawed it could bankrupt insurance companies and cripple ObamaCare itself. "Week after week, month after month," says John Goodman of the National Center for Policy Analysis, "the Obama administration kept telling us everything´s working fine, there´s no problem and then they turn on a dime and fire their contractor." To justify a no-bid contract with Accenture after firing CGI as the lead contractor, the administration released documents from the Department of Health and Human Services and the Center

Marijuana makes you stupid. Nobody wants to acknowledge the obvious fact, but that’s what this whole legalization debate is all about. That’s why most of the candidates for governor, of both parties, have come out against legalization, even if they have to obfuscate why they’re opposed to the Colorado-ization of Massachusetts. After all, the pols can’t offend that pivotal ganja-American voting bloc, assuming they can remember to vote in November.

Politics: The Obama administration has turned the executive branch loose on its enemies — part of a disturbing and unprecedented trend toward delegitimizing political differences and marginalizing conservatives. Behind the special status of his presidency, President Obama has used the machinery of government to harass and intimidate political opponents — to an extent greater even than former Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, both threatened with impeachment. Consider these recent events, courtesy of the Ace of Spades blog: • Attorney General Eric Holder´s Southern District of New York office has indicted conservative author, activist and filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza — producer of the critical

America is set for the coldest month of the century as weather forecasters predict yet another freezing blast of Arctic air - putting Super Bowl Sunday in jeopardy. Teams have been warned to stay on high alert for changes to the scheduling of the first Super Bowl to be played in an open-air stadium. Temperatures have already hit record lows, at times making parts of the U.S. colder than the North Pole, and are expected to plunge in the coming days.

AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas started a trend by making most of its high school students tackle algebra II. But eight years later, the state often watched for education policy is abandoning the requirement. The move is being praised by school districts for affording them more flexibility. But some policy experts are nervous because nearly 20 states have since followed Texas´ lead in requiring the advanced math course. Supporters say fewer curriculum mandates give students more time to focus on vocational training for high-paying jobs that don´t necessarily require a college degree.

Stephen Hawking has produced a "mind-bending" new theory that argues black holes do not actually exist - at least not in the way we currently perceive them. Instead, in his paper, Information Preservation and Weather Forecasting for Black Holes, Hawking proposes that black holes can exist without 'event horizons', the invisible cover believed to surround every black hole.During a previous lecture, 'Into the Black Hole', Hawkins described an event horizon as the boundary of a black hole, "where gravity is just strong enough to drag light back, and prevent it escaping".
“Falling through the event horizon, is a bit like going over Niagara Falls in a canoe", he said. "If you are above the falls, you can get away if you paddle fast enough, but once you are over the edge, you are lost. There's no way back.

I personally have not signed up for Amazon’s premiere, super-duper, fancy-dancy, wave-o’-the-future membership program, even though I’m a frequent customer. But I’m fascinated by the transformation people talk about once they do. “Oh, you’ll see,” they tell me, “you’ll see.” On its face, Prime offers two simple things: Free two-day shipping on most purchases, and access to streaming movies and TV shows. All for $80 a year. Whether or not people need two-day shipping, a few things seem to happen once they

The Texas governor race catapulted onto the national scene earlier this week, when an undercover video revealed supporters of Democratic candidate Wendy Davis mocking Republican rival Greg Abbott’s use of a wheelchair. Battleground Texas, the group of Davis supporters caught making the comments, naturally denied the video’s validity. Additionally, Davis issued a statement condemning the language used in the video. In an interview with Megyn Kelly, Abbott, who is the attorney general of Texas, responded to the ordeal: Denigrating the disabled is unworthy of Texas….What Texans really look at is the depth of character.
