Obama Clears the Way For America's 2 Largest Oil Wells to be Shutdown in Texas
ChicoER Gate ^ | 4/25/11 | Chuck Wolk

Posted on 04/25/2011 11:59:17 AM PDT by OneVike



From the moment Richard Nixon created the EPA in 1970, and signed the Endangered Species Act (ESA) into law, they have been the primary engines of social change used by leftists environmental elitists to destroy America. They have done so by infiltrating the EPA, and the US Fish & Wildlife (USF&W) the agency which decides what animals will be listed as endangered. Now, 28 years later, these renegade environmentalist wackos are prepared to use the ESA to shut down oil and gas operations in portions of Southeast New Mexico and in West Texas, including the state's top two oil producing counties. All because of a tiny lizard they claim to be endangered, and Obama who has the power to put it on a waiting list has cleared the way for it to be listed.

Through the years the EPA & the ESA have been used to shut down vast areas of America that we as Americans need to survive in a modern world. Areas that contain, rich farmland needed to grow food that both America and foreign countries need to feed billions of people. Forest areas so rich in timber that the price of building homes could be reduced dramatically if only we were allowed to harvest them. Instead, year after year we spend billions fighting fires that reduce the timber to ashes. When it comes to energy, these government paid earth worshipers have used their power to keep us from drilling for oil, and stand in the way of building needed power plants all across America. According to a recent Congressional report America has the largest oil, coal, and natural gas reserves in the world, if tapped we could be completely energy independent. Truth is, America has enough natural energy reserves, timberland, sustainable farm land, freshwater lakes and underground reservoirs that we could reduce the cost of living for each and every American by more than 50%, if only the governments chains of restrictions were removed.

The earth worshiping environmentalists running the USF&W have used an owl to shut down logging in the Northwest, a mouse to shut down wheat farming in Colorado, a minnow and rat to end vegetable growing in California, a frog has closed fish hatcheries in the deep South, while the reintroduction of wolves are endangering the lives of ranchers, farmers, and hunters all across America from the Rockies to Maine.  Now they are planning to use a lizard to shut down two of Americas largest oil wells in Texas. We already have one of the largest oil reserves put off limits by the EPA in Anwar Alaska, while Obama is ignoring a Federal judges order to allow drilling to continue in the Gulf. This while almost every communist country in the world has oil wells operating in our backyard, the Gulf of Mexico.

In a logical universe, we would have politicians that would do all they can to make sure Americans had a cost of living so low that no one in America would be struggling to make ends meet.  Instead these traitors would rather see Americans struggle to survive while they act as if their various government programs are saving the day. Never before in the history of the world has a countries leaders tried so hard to force its citizens to become so dependent and subservient to other countries. Many of which are our sworn enemies. Can anyone imagine Alexander, Caesar, or even George Washington forcing their citizens to humble themselves before an enemy of lesser power like Persia, Carthage, or England? No, only a modern day Judas, Ephialtes, or Benedict Arnold, would cause their own people to suffer the indignities our leaders so consistently force us to.

The current threat to America's freedom comes from a 3 inch lizard called the Sceloporus Arenicolus, or better known as the Dunes Sagebrush Lizard or the Sand Dune Lizard. It was originally classified as a subspecies of the Sceloporus Graciosus, or Common Sagebrush Lizard. Before they designated the Dune Lizards as a separate species, there were so many of them you could feed them to the Chinese as a delicacy and never run out. It was in 2002 that the Center for Biological Diversity first petitioned to have the lizard listed as endangered. The Bush administration stood in the way of the lizard being listed for 6 years, but last year Obama cleared the way by ordering his administration to back off from delaying the listing. This in spite of the news that Obama has repeatedly refused to grant species the protection for which they are known to qualify adding them instead to the waiting list. So why did he allow this lizard to be listed? There can be only one reason, and that is because Obama wants to destroy America's ability to be energy free. So his relentless attack on America's energy capabilities continues. Go figure.

There was a rally in Roswell NM last week on April 20th that had hundreds protesting the listing and there will be another one on Tuesday April 26th, in Midland Tx at the Midland Center that begins at 5 p.m. with Congressman Mike Conaway will speaking to the concerned citizens. Then on Wednesday April 27th, there will be a public hearing held at 6:30 p.m at the Midland Center. If you want to be heard then be there to support those at the front line in the battle to stop a lizard from shutting down Americas 2 largest working oil wells.

"It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate,
tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds
."
-- Samuel Adams --
Leader in our Fight for Independence


The following is from the Federal register PDF file.  In it the USF&W explains what they are attempting to accomplish through the Endangered Species Act,
(here is the link to the official PDF file)

    We, the USF&W, propose to list the dunes sagebrush lizard (Sceloporus Arenicolus), a lizard known from southeastern New Mexico and adjacent west Texas, as endangered under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended. If we finalize the rule as proposed, it would extend the Act's protections to this species. We have determined that critical habitat for the dunes sagebrush lizard is prudent but not determinable at this time.

    Proposed Listing Determination We have carefully assessed the best scientific and commercial information available regarding the past, present, and future threats to the dunes sagebrush lizard. The dunes sagebrush lizard faces immediate and significant threats due to oil and gas activities, and herbicide treatments. Habitat loss and fragmentation due to oil and gas development is a measureable factor impacting the species due to the removal of shinnery oak and creation of roads and pads, pipelines, and power lines that create habitat patches and increase the proportion of habitat edge to habitat interior. In addition, impacts that are not easily quantified such as climate change, competition, and pollution may exacerbate adverse effects caused by habitat loss. Cumulative threats to the dunes sagebrush lizard are not being adequately addressed through existing regulatory mechanisms. Oil and gas pollutants are a current and ongoing threat to the species throughout its range.

    We believe the following actions may jeopardize this species, and therefore we would seek to conference with BLM and NRCS on these actions:

  • The lease of land for oil and gas drilling,
  • Applications to drill,
  • Applications for infrastructure through dunes (including, but not limited to pipelines and power lines),
  • OHV activities,
  • Seismic exploration,
  • Continued oil and gas operations (release of pollution and routine maintenance),
  • Grazing leases,
  • Renewable resource activities, and
  • Chemical and mechanical removal of shinnery oak habitat.
  • Do not place power lines and fences through shinnery oak dune complexes;
  • Develop transmission corridors for pipelines and power lines;
  • Limit pollution by inspecting pipelines and equipment;
  • Develop and implement plans for cleaning oil spills;
  • Limit hydrogen sulfide emissions;
  • Maintain wells; and
  • Limit any further infrastructure that would remove the shinnery oak dunes.

    Possible measures that could be implemented to conserve the dunes sagebrush lizard and its habitat are:

  • Maintain 500-m (1640-ft) wide dispersal corridors in shinnery oak dunes for the dunes sagebrush lizards to disperse between habitat patches;
  • Discontinue chemical spraying within occupied or suitable habitat;
  • Place well pads outside of shinnery oak dunes and corridors between dune complexes;
  • Manage well density to limit development in habitat;
  • Minimize well pad size and carry out site reclamation;
  • Develop techniques to recreate shinnery oak dunes;
  • Limit OHV use in occupied habitat;
  • Minimize impacts of seismic exploration by thumper trucks;
  • Develop a public awareness program;

Oh come on now...the media says high gas prices are caused by all the fraud and speculation on Wall Street. 0bama’s latest commission is getting to the bottom of it. Closing wells won’t affect gas prices.

What I find amazing is that nobody in the media laughed when he announced a commission to investigate fraud in runaway gasoline prices. Only this man and this brain dead public would applaud a presidential appointed commission on accomplishing his own stated goals and policies?

We're doomed.

The are should not be shut down due to a lizard.

However, to state that “America’s 2 Largest Oil Wells to be Shutdown” is complete BS.

If Obama even looks like he has a chance in 2012, which apparently he does, the only question in my mind is when will states like Texas commandeer their territory back from the federal government and take over/privatize operations under state protection?

Don't you doubt for a second that ol' Tricky Dick and all the GOP CONgressmen that voted for these twin monstrosities knew exactly what the results would be.

Well, it appears 0bama is trying to get out in front of the UN’s push to place bugs and reptiles onto the same priority level as humans. The killing off of our economy is a side-benefit.

I would LOVE to see Texas’ National Guard stand up a cordon of protection around those wells.

“I cannot believe that there is no one, no way to fight this crap. Losing/lost faith in the entire system of checks and balances.”

I have long since lost any faith, trust, or belief in my government as it now stands. The only thing I believe is that it will be corrected by armed force if necessary. There are far too many armed men and women with military training and combat skills for the Government to do anything to stop it. One of our founding fathers stated that tree of Liberty must be watered with the blood of Tyrants and Patriots occasionally. So I prepare for the worst and hope for the best!
