The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, LOVE. 2 Peter 1:7
Who does the stopping of the Keystone pipeline help the most? Sure it will bring Obozo some laundered greenie cult dollars thorough the usual suspects but where do the environazis get their money? And of course it will help the Saudis by forcing America to buy more of their oil but all of their oil is sold to any number of countries closer to them so they are pretty neutral. Sending the oil to China may hurt us but that oil will be used by the Chinese while still forcing them to buy world supply. The wealthiest man in the world is who needs that pipeline to point any direction but south, he is the world puppet master George $oro$.
He is heavily invested in the high risk deep water exploration off Brazil. He is the major investor in those deep water wells that are not permitted off our coasts, were developed with the understanding we would be their primary customer. When they were first being explored just after Obama was inaugurated and before the BP spill, Petrobras was having a hard time getting investments due to the low oil prices coming out of the Bush administration. If those investors dried up his company would be bankrupt in less than 30 days. To bring the Billions needed he had to have assurances we would be buying their oil and that the large investors would be pouring the necessary funds needed to drill before the first production well would be developed.
The amounts of money needed were enormous and especially in a world tight on finances and awash in oil so Georgie stood to lose his Billion$ he had invested. Fortunately he had an ace up his sleeve and forced Obama to loan him an additional $5 Billion and put a moratorium on Gulf exploration and development. Now nobody knows if it was incompetence or corruption but he knew he could get what he wanted and now comes a pipeline which can destroy his entire plan.
The Keystone pipeline would not only provide America with 2 million barrels per week but would provide the key refineries he wants to supply with a large percentage of their capacity at very attractive pricing. Canadas transportation costs via pipeline vs the cost of loading shipping and unloading oil from Brazil does not pencil putting his production off sides. Not only does the Canadian oil start off lower due to the density of the oil but the transportation costs makes it an absolute winner for these refineries he needs to process his oil.
There is only one solution and that is to stop the pipeline using the same tactics he used on the Gulf moratorium. First he will tell the President to not sign the bill and force it to go to China which is out of his shipping feasibility, putting him against Middle East oil. Second, he would have his green cult declare it a dirty polluter and have protests and street theater in DC to make the people think stopping the pipeline is for their own good. He knows that the Green cult sells and he will just use the old Spotted Owl scare tactic and instantly all the Polar Bear huggers would shout their Stop the Oil chants. Finally, he will have his surrogate lawyers at Greenpeace and Sierra Club file lawsuits to kill the pipeline and effectively force Canada to build a pipeline East rather than South. Boehner accidently threw a wrench into his little plan.
This pipeline is perhaps the biggest threat on his wealth since the Britain failed to go into his planned depression. Now he has made out like a dentist at Dachau with this latest recession as he laughed all the way to Switzerland, but this one could be damaging. Unnamed sources inside his company say he owns somewhere in the neighborhood of 75% of Petrobras both above board and below and if were to tank he stands to make MF Global look like a lemonade stand. Even though he is in the top 1% of the 1% this could potentially be devastating to not only his finances but his power. He would have to explain to the entire world how he couldnt control an incompetent and corrupt President he bought as well as most of a Sinate. He would lose major stature if he didnt have the refining piece of the puzzle he desperately needs to feed the American market and feed funds to his laundry machine in the gummit.
The pipeline would force him to do one of two things, lose billions and become a laughingstock amongst the billionaires club or allow America to build more refineries. Neither of those options would play well for his investments since losing money and face results in losing money and building refineries would strengthen the dollar causing him to lose more money. He doesnt always bet against the dollar but will do everything in his power to collapse it because as he says, the only thing standing between him and world communism is America. He thought he had solved that little irritant and now he is in a bit of a jam over Keystone.
He still has plenty of cards on the table but he never expected to have to be playing them yet. He thought the game was won when he got his year extension on the decision. This 60 day amendment in the bill is an irritant and is going to potentially expose him and his accomplices as being against the American people and for the Chinese. Fortunately, he has the $oro$ news network from Mediamatters.soros to NPRos however many understand who pays their paychecks as that they are on the same team. The new media is the group he is aware of, since if they sink their teeth into this and realize the Achilles tendon this pipeline represents he could be damaged severely if not destroyed. Now wouldnt that be a pity.
This seemingly insignificant pipeline from our neighbors to the north is actually the biggest issue we have had since the Teapot Dome scandal. Not only does it represent a large step towards energy and economic freedom but the potential destruction of one of the biggest money machines the commiecrats enjoy. He has spread his money like an evil octopus controlling all the major leftists around the Country and the world. He is out on a limb with this investment as we saw when he forced the shutdown of the Gulf and the acquisition of all those drilling platforms. The BP spill allowed him access to equipment he would have never been able to use at discounted prices, how convenient.
He is a desperate man right now and doing whatever he can to make this happen beneath the surface and forcing the Global Warming crowd to sell one more round of snake oil. If the pipeline is approved his entire empire could fall like a house of cards just like every other Ponzi we have witnessed over the past couple of years. The irony would be delicious as would the breaking of the shackles he represents. Sierra Club, broke, PETA broke, Tides Foundation, busted, $oro$ media, closed and on and on as America once again becomes the land of freedom. The Keystone Pipeline would become Soros Tombstone.
Happy New Year
Note: The above opinion is not necessarily mine, but FReeper Brays. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.
Happy New Year to all the Patriots at FR.
Much love and many warm wishes from Ohio to each of you.
Where for art thou, Newt? Where for art thou?
Wishing all FReepers a Happy, Healthy & Prosperous New Year!
I would not put past the driveby media to not invite him.
They don’t want him to be our nominee; they want Romney to be.
They do not want Obama to lose come November, so they promote the Republican they think they’re most likely to beat: Romney.
F&F promo for FNS with Wallace...
They were basically concluding that Perry doesn’t stand a chance and should drop out now.
Santorum is the new wonderboy, flavor of the week.
Chris Wallace should do what’s right and drop out of Fox News Sunday. Maybe he can take his fathers job.
HAPPY NEW YEARS!
Tremendous stuff today from bray. Right on the mark.
Paul on now with Wallace, can’t stand either one of them.
And our manipulative "news" media are carefully keeping from tv viewers the actual physical size and shape of candidate Gingrich. He is old and fat and unappealing, and we have not had a president that looked that way since Taft, iirc.
The full frontal and profile views are being reserved for when/if he actually becomes a contendah.
Chris Wallace is a real piece of work, Fox is sucking big time.
Unfortunately I agree with him on guaranteed health insurance coverage for AIDS patients. Why should healthy insurables be denied affordable premiums just to subsidize very expensive unhealthy behavior.
Morning AB, All
Let me start with the obvious...Happy New Year to All.
As always, special wishes to you AB for doing this thread. Here’s hoping you continue thru 2012.
I have two NY resolutions. One is to get confirmed in my Catholic faith. When I was a young Catholic girl, my parents got divorced and I was always being moved back and forth to schools. I always seemed to miss the Bishop by one year.
Second, I will, for the first time in my life, purchase and learn how to use a gun.
Those are my concrete resolutions. On a more abstract trend, I plan to improve my cooking skills, to cull all the frou-frou from my life to a simple, but happy life, and, as always, to be a better person.
Read an interesting article that I will excerpt and comment on later in the thread. For now the endless analyses of the year just passed.
Michelle Bachmann up now.
Where do you come up with this nonsense? The GOP field is stronger than anything the dRats have come up with in the last decade, at least. Stop listening to the "has beens" in the beltway cocoon.
Yeah Chris Wallace did nothing but got ya questions with Paul now softballs to MB.
Howdy Pat, Happy New Year.
Bachmann hasn’t run any TV ads in Iowa since August, campaign running on fumes. She’s dead last.
Michelle never hesitates for a second on answering any question.
Wallace berating her on earmarks.
Romney's Wallace begins by ignoring every poll against Romney
and EVEN THEN the Romney pimp 'sauces' the results.
FOX begins its propaganda on the GOP candidates
"Confident", FOX New's Wallace declares, is Romney.
"Well respected", FOX New's Wallace declares, is Romney
Only backed by "religious conservatives" is Santorum.
"Planning for his comback" is Gingrich.
"Near the top" is Paul.
"Dangerous" is Paul
Ron Paul "Interview":
Psychotic Paul purports he gets widespread "foreign policy support".
Will Wallace discuss this? or "nuclear Iran"?
With all the foreign policy idiocy, Wallace focuses ... on homophobia of Paul (to ingratiate to Romney ).
Ms. Bachmann "Interview":
Wallace then begins another of his "interviews" discussing
the ONLY poll that ever showed Romney ahead, over and over.
Every question Wallace gives appears to refer ONLY
to THAT poll so that Wallace can purport
RINO Romney is "in the lead", over and over.
Hyperbiased Wallace appears to again only focus on questions given him by Team Romney.
Biased from the start. SO BIASED they must purport they are not.
Thanks for the thread. Back after coffee.
Take for example the Patriot Act enforcement under George Bush, as opposed to it now being under Obama and Janet Napolitano (SHUDDER).
Newt has a political tin ear, in my opinion. Stuff like this happened in the 90’s as well. He makes a statement like this, and (you know it will happen) the driveby’s and the democrats go ballistic, taking it all out of context and coming up with headlines that seem to make Newt look like a lunatic, as below:
“Gingrich's attack on the courts takes on the Constitution, too “
“Gingrich's assault on divided powers”
“Congress should direct US Marshals to apprehend judges”
“Gingrich threatens the judges”
Now you and I might very well understand what Newt is saying here, and even agree with it, but to the average wishy-washy voter out there, it sound like he's off his rocker.
So I don't know what to say about Newt. I could be happy to have him as president, but he really, really needs someone who is media astute to bounce his utterings off of before he makes them.
Perry up now, Wallace asking him to drop out.
Wallace pounding him about weak campaign, earmarks. Perry looked kinda like he had to pee, couldn’t sit still.
Maybe his back is feeling better.
Perry wants to debate Obama, say he will come early.
But, Daddy is dead!?... Is voting Democrat still, even in he!!. :-\
Santorum hitting homer after homer on MTP. Schooling DNC Dave.
Come Jan 21st, RS has MY vote.
LOL!....Food channel helps.. I even burn water. B-)
Took courage to say that; kudos to Paul.
Then I listen to Chris Wallace follow up and I do some thinking. For Wallace asks Paul a question, a very loaded question: "Do you think that homosexuals should be denied health insurance?" he asked.
My first response, indignantly, was "HE DIDN'T SAY THAT!" Indeed Paul's first response was, duh, "I didn't say that."
Indeed Paul said nothing even remotely like that and I fumed. Wallace was being a dopey lamestream media type, insinuating himself into the story via loaded question.
So I wondered, well what would have been the proper way to couch that question without sounding accusatory? The way Wallace phrased that question made it sound like he was just re-formulating a question Paul had asked in the past.
He, and his allegedly impartial minions in the media, COULD have said, to the effect...."Since you allege that homosexual diseases might well be a result of their lifestyle, do you also take the position that they shouldn't be able to get health insurance.?"
The above is better phrased and makes it clear that such an assertion had never been made by the questionee.
It's how they form the news, those dishonest prideless journalists. Even Chris Wallace.
In the first question a casual listener, the sort who only listen to political discourse on sleepy Sundays, Meet the Press, that kind of thing, would walk away thinking that just damn.....that Ron Paul really is a kook, asserting homosexuals shouldn't get health insurance.
No matter what the dishonest media would have you believe, the vast majority of boobaloobs out here in America don't wish any harm to our homosexual breathren, but we're not all that keen on special programs to underwrite their risky behavior or allowing them to get married.
By this nefarious campaign the dishonest media undertakes for their own glory, they make candidates, especially Republicans, look like nut cases.
Sorry to get so long for my thoughts but....see below. ;)
Don't know if I buy all of this since its going to be a while before the US is energy self sufficient if even in my lifetime. We will still be buying huge quantities of oil from someone and if the choice is the Saudis, Iran,Venezuela or Brazil, Brazil may wind up with a market share.Simply by being the best of the worst.
I do however realize the Soros /zero relationship as slave owner/ slave. Zero will do his bidding but if Keystone gets too pricey,politically,which is all that matters in the regime,if we do our job well enough, zero may try and say yes to the pipeline while sabotaging it under the table and hoping for the best.
Bray is right in one area Zero never gives into us no matter what the consequences. So far he has been able to spin his way out of every misdeed but that won't work forever.
DON’T SHOW THE GUN TO THE BISHOP!
Obama has to be defeated or the US will no longer exist. Simple as that. That’s why Soros is betting where his money is placed.
Newt’s lack of organizational skills in the campaign my be his achilles heel.That and the RNC destroying everyone in VA.
Three tickets out of Iowa? I think 4, Newt will be in the hunt too.
Rand Paul is on the talk shows this morning to cut down
Gingrich and tell the world no Tea Partier should vote for him, they should all vote for his old man.
I heard him the other day on CNN. Newt, Newt, Newt, bad,
bad, bad, etc.
Newt will destroy RINO Romney in SC.
The Palin /Rubio ticket is sadly missing here. I think they saw the handwriting on the wall as well and both decided to sit this one out. I still say the election is ours to lose. You can’t fool the people forever.
Santorum was good, but the makeup and hair thing doesnt work for him. He looked like a fag.
Their conclusion is best summarized by the New York Times attendee.
FOX News (Biased from the start) declares that
Romney will "win Iowa" NO MATTER THE OUTCOME.
Astonishingly, before the break,
Wallace threatens Iowans that they may not "deserve"
to be the 'first' primary vote
in the future [presumably how they vote for RINO Romney].
FOX News. Biased from the start.
SO BIASED they must purport they are not.
Newt has a political tin ear, in my opinion.
Newt is almost in an Asperger’s category with people skills.
A guy I already forgot about, saying people will soon forget about Iowa. (Huntsman)
We live in a pc world where truth is beaten back until its a distant memory.
What a good indicator, actually !
