How fracking insulates USA: Our view
USA Today, by The Editorial Board

Original Article

Posted By:JHSMom02, 8/28/2014 10:39:21 AM

There is much news these days from the world´s major energy producing regions. Almost none of it is good. Iraq, Libya and Syria are in turmoil. Russia, the world's largest exporter of natural gas and the second largest exporter of oil, is bullying Ukraine and by extension Western Europe. And Iran's nuclear program may yet provoke a market-roiling conflict.

Comments:
Good article. And it´s short. Drill, baby, drill. Horizontal drilling using fracking is helping to make us less dependent on foreign oil. Good.

We need to expand natural gas or LPG exports to Europe to wean them off their Russian suppliers. But that´s going to require some infrastructure on the East Coast, many years away or if at all with the renegade EPA.

We have fracking, F-16´s and F-35´s, all of which were opposed by the socialists, so glad to hear some of them now saying how glad to have them.

The underlying problem will not be solved until we all stop listening to the environmentalists. The fracking will be shut down ASAP by environmentalists. They will apply the strictest standards to the "studies" of environmental impact from fracking or any real source of energy while giving a pass to their already approved solar and wind farms. So what if the propellers and concentrated solar energy of these projects kill birds. An environmental study is rigged to give the answer already favoured by the environmentalists. Other projects need not apply! The sooner we admit this the better off we will be. I have long believed that the green movement is the old red movement being used to hamstring the western economy. Let the enviros clean up their hero Russia´s environmental disasters - Chernobel, the Rusting nuclear fleet on the Kola peninsula and the draining of the Aral sea and then come to obstruct the west on environmental grounds. If they object to these real disasters they will quickly put in their place by their masters. They have no credibility!

From the Times-Standard Opinion: "Hydraulic fracturing in California uses an average of 160,000 gallons of water per well. That´s about one-fifth of an Olympic-sized swimming pool. In fact, in 2013 the California Department of Conservation reported hydraulic fracturing used slightly more than 300 acre feet of water in a year. For context, California´s golf courses use 140,000 acre feet and agriculture used 34 million acre feet. Not to mention that oil development actually produces water, which is sometimes treated and sold to agriculture.

USA Today recognizing that US energy development is a good thing. Amazing.

Of course, at the end they throw in the mandatory hand wringing -"And, yes, climate change is in desperate need of attention."

Perhaps one day they will also recognize that 1)the climate is NOT dramatically changing and 2) there is nothing that we can do about the climate, even if it was.

Of course it has been left out of the article that this "success" and reaching the long sought goal of energy independence has been reached over the extreme resistance of the federal government. Most of these resources have been pulled from private land. BO has blocked access to federal land for drilling. He has even lost court battles over it.

This is a win in SPITE of liberals. Imagine where we might be if liberals actually did things to the benefit of America.

And of course "climate change", the fraud of the century, must be mentioned. Gack!

Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum on Thursday criticized comments US Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) made earlier this month, in a speech that critics have said was unnecessarily confrontational toward a Middle Eastern Christian group. (snip) Cruz earned the ire of many conservatives for his speech to a group called "In Defense of Christians." During those remarks, Cruz made a point to say he would not support groups in the Middle East who are not pro-Israel.  He walked off the stage to a chorus of boos after eventually telling the crowd he wouldn´t "stand with" them if they did not "stand

Although 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue may be the most famous address in the country, that doesn’t mean everyone remembers it. At the Value Voters Summit today in Washington, D.C, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who was the Republican nominee for vice president in 2008, mistakenly referred to the White House as being located at “1400 Pennsylvania Avenue.” “Don’t retreat. You reload with truth, which I know is an endangered species at 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue, anyway truth,” Palin said. “The media’s favorite president. He just can’t stop telling lies.” It doesn’t appear that a 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue NW actually exists–but the closest

Jeb Bush Suggests Republicans Should
Pass Amnesty if They Win Back Senate

Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against amnesty, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush pushed amnesty legislation while stumping for North Carolina Republican Senate candidate Thom Tillis on Wednesday. Bush, according to the New York Times, reportedly said that comprehensive immigration reform "will restore and sustain economic growth for this country." And even though a recent Gallup poll found that illegal immigration is now the top concern among Republicans, Bush said that if immigration reform is "framed in that way, I don’t think there’s a big debate in the Republican Party about the need to do this."

Attorney General Eric Holder´s abrupt announcement that he intends to leave the Obama administration as soon as the president is able to find someone to take over for him was initiated by his doctor wife´s concerns about his health, a news report revealed on Thursday. Holder was rushed in an ambulance to a Washington, D.C. hospital in February after feeling faint and having a shortness of breath. [Snip] Politico Magazine reported on Thursday that ´under pressure´ from his wife, Sharon Malone, an obstetrician and gynecologist, Holder decided to make the jump now before Republicans potentially take over the Senate in

The Rev. Al Sharpton said his civil rights organization, the National Action Network, is "engaged in immediate conversations" with the White House as they work to name a successor to Attorney General Eric Holder, who is set to announce his resignation Thursday afternoon. "We are engaged in immediate conversations with the White House on deliberations over a successor whom we hope will continue in the general direction of Attorney General Holder," Sharpton said in a statement. Sharpton praised Holder, the first African-American attorney general, as the "best" one in history when it comes to civil rights. "The resignation of Attorney General Eric Holder

Of all the malfeasances of William Jefferson Clinton the one that would have most justified a removal from office was not the Monica hijinks, even with the attendant lying under oath and absurd parsings of the word “is,” but the pardoning of Marc Rich — the billionaire international commodities trader and mammoth contributor to, er, Clinton. Luckily for Bill, this action occurred on the last day of his presidency, making anything like impeachment moot, even though it was an example of political corruption that would have made Boss Tweed envious. For those who don’t recall the details, here’s Wikipedia: In 1983

With the mid-term elections weeks away, many conservatives are confronting a difficult choice. Assuming there are no solid conservatives on the ballot, do we vote for establishment candidates? Or not vote at all? The reasons why some conservatives are on the fence or planning not to vote are well known. (And Democrats are loving every minute of it!) “Establishment Republicans have attacked us and I refuse to support any of them.” “I’m sick of RINO’s. They’re no better than the Democrats.” “Other than a few strong conservatives, the rest of the GOP stands for nothing.” I share these frustrations. The conversation in my head goes something

Suhaib Webb, an Imam with ties to former Al Qaeda mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki, had also previously been the leader of the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, which had been attended by Alton Nolen -- the man who on Thursday beheaded a former coworker after recently converting to Islam, Breitbart News has learned. Webb now serves as Imam of the sister organization of the mosque attended by Boston Marathon bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev. Imam Suhaib Webb has a history of ties to radicalism, including a previous. FBI surveillance documents found that he was a known confidant of Al Qaeda

If I were a scientist, I´d stick to the Goldman Sachs principle: bet on both sides. "Believe in science, believe in God" seems to cover all the possibilities and gives you the best chance for a cheery afterlife. For a time, it was thought that astrophysicist Stephen Hawking had also left a tiny gap in his credo window for a magical deity. However, he has now come out and declared that there is no God. (Snip...) "Before we understand science, it is natural to believe that God created the universe. But now science offers a more convincing explanation."

We’re being had. Again. For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual

Milton Wolf, the tea party candidate who battled Sen. Pat Roberts in a bitter Republican primary fight, is considering some political payback: Endorsing Kansas independent Greg Orman, sources said Thursday night. But there’s a big catch: To win Wolf’s endorsement, Orman must first agree to caucus with the Senate GOP if he were to defeat Roberts in the general election. The two men were scheduled to meet Friday afternoon at Orman’s house in Olathe, Kansas., just outside of Kansas City, according to two people familiar with the matter. One person said Orman’s team sought the meeting but there was no
