Skip to comments.America's hope that Obama is determined to change [his vision is not in our best interest]

Newt Gingrich has found a new avenue of influence the gas station. His campaign stop at a local gas station, holding the gas pump in his hand, decrying the lack of algae energy was brilliant.
He is correct. There is currently no algae energy available for Americas massive demand and thanks to President Obama, there is no fossil fuel plan, either. He stifles coal. He stifles oil. He stifles natural gas. Fossil fuel production on federal lands is at a nine-year low.
His Secretary of Energy, Steven Chu, wants gas prices to reach $8.00 a gallon, a la Europe, forcing Americans to switch (yes, he now disavows his statement from 2008, but its a campaign year, so how seriously should that be taken?). But switch to what - the Chevy Volt? - only if you want to catch on fire.
The genius of the American people should not be underestimated. Americans did not blow out their candles before they had dependable electricity.
In response to Newts well-armed fuel duel, Obama could only resort to snide comments comparing Newt to a member of the flat earth society. Obamas adoring crowd chuckled.
Will they be laughing when gasoline is $8.00 a gallon? Will they be laughing when Iran, backed by China and armed with nuclear capability, terrorizes the region and closes the Strait of Hormuz?
Will they be laughing when our economy crashes and China builds her attack upon our indebtedness to her?
Herein lies the problem. Obama threatens not only our livelihoods and our economy with his cavalier ideology but also our national security. He has put the cart before the horse. He has put his vision before Americas best interest.
Most Americans would agree that energy alternatives are commendable with emphasis on the word alternative. Yet, we do not have dependable alternatives because Obama is giving tax money to losers like Solyndra and suffocating private enterprise with the EPA, heavy taxation and political correctness.
Not only is it unconscionable and unconstitutional, it is also unsuccessful. Free enterprise and freedom to choose, not to mention freedom to innovate without government intrusion, is a basic tenant of American rights and prosperity.
Obamas ostentatious insistence on going green, no matter the cost, is madness - especially when America is battling a national debt that is $15 trillion and rising.
To thwart Americas rich and vast fossil fuel resources is unreasonable. Hidden within the earth lies not only self-reliance but solvency.
Forbes Magazine contributor Peter Ferrara - quoting a recent Steve Moore piece in the Wall Street Journal - observes that:
In 1995, the U.S. Geological Survey estimated 150 million technically recoverable barrels of oil from the Bakken Shale In April 2008, that number was up to about four billion barrels, and in 2010 geologists put it at eight billion. This week, given the discovery of a lower shelf of oil, they announced 24 billion barrels.
Current technology allows for the extraction of only about 6% of the oil trapped one or two miles below the earths surface, so as the technology advances recoverable oil could eventually exceed 500 billion barrels.
In the same vein, Gingrich said the number of recoverable barrels of oil estimated to be in the United States, waiting to be produced [is 1.44 trillion]. Thats about the amount of oil the entire world has consumed since the first well was drilled before the Civil War. In addition, we have an estimated 2.744 quadrillion (a 15 digit number) cubic feet of natural gas.
Ferrara explains, Gingrich notes the estimate of the royalties to the federal government from such oil and gas development at $18 trillion over the next generation. That is enough, he further notes, to pay off the current entire national debt of $15.5 trillion, without increased taxes.
Common sense dictates the harvesting of such vast American riches, yielding stabilizing independence. The statistics are startling in their breadth of hope a hope that is denied by Obamas determination to change.
He's not going to turn into a conservative capitalist, either.
"Cold day in hell" comes to mind..
Control of the message is essential in order to control the masses. Climate Control and Population Control are kissing cousins.
Which brings me to the topic of President Barack Obama, John P. Holdren (his science and technology czar), the Catholic church and birth control for ALL. [AND KEEP IN MIND — John P. Holdren served Gov. Mitt Romney (..carbon caps....mandated health care..) before moving with Barack Obama to the White House]
Anne and Paul Ehrlich, John Tanton and John P. Holdren (Obama’s long standing Science and Technology adviser) — Their march — starting back in the late sixties for population control — now an ecological-population argument — has been a long journey together.
“..Everybody here has a three-day beard and a hardhat and steel-toed work boots, but theres a strong whiff of chess club and Science Olympiad in the air, young men who are no strangers to the pocket protector, who in adolescence discovered an unusual facility for fluid dynamics and now are beavering away at mind-clutchingly complex technical problems, one of which is how to get a 150-foot-tall tower of machinery from A to B without taking it apart and trucking it (solution: add feet). That giant robot may walk, but it isnt too fast: It can take half a day to move 20 feet, because this isnt a Transformers movie, this is The Play, and Boy Genius is a member of the startlingly youthful and bespectacled tribe of engineers swarming out of the University of Pittsburgh and the Colorado School of Mines and Penn State and into the booming gas fields of Pennsylvania, where the math weenies are running the show in the Marcellus shale, figuring out how to relentlessly suck a Saudi Arabias worth of natural gas out of a vein of hot and impermeable rock thousands of feet beneath the green valleys of Penns woods. Forget about your wildcatters, your roughnecks, your swaggering Texans in big hats: The nerds have taken over.
.....Cheap, relatively clean, ayatollah-free energy, enormous investments in real capital and infrastructure, thousands of new jobs for blue-collar workers and Ph.D.s alike, Americans engineering something other than financial derivatives who could not love all that?
It is the year of the “ethics of energy,” according to the National Council of Churches (NCC).....
.........Formerly overt supporters of communism, the NCC recast itself as a leader of the ‘religious left.’” While the U.S. was fighting the Cold War, the NCC funded communist regimes in.... The NCC considers the U.S. “an oppressor, both at home and abroad”....
... Candidates should feel comfortable explaining their religious convictions to voters.” But...”there is a point when an emphasis on religion becomes inappropriate and even unsettling in a religiously diverse society such as ours.”...
........ReverendWright admired LouisFarrakhan....,and often praised him both in sermons and in his church’s magazine, the Trumpet. Through carefully distorted biblical passages, black liberation theology portrays.....
A key link of the religious left to Obama was a 1998 BlackRadicalCongress in Chicago. ReverendWright shared a panel with CornelWest and MichaelDyson of the DemocraticSocialistsofAmerica (DSA) and Socialism Commission. The title of the panel was “Faith as a Weapon: Spirituality and the Role of the Church in the RadicalMovement” (Loudon,BarackObama and the Enemies Within,......
.....Another link of Obama to the religious left is his spiritual advisor, JimWallis. Wallis is the founder of Sojourners, which describes itself as a” biblical call to social justice, inspiring hope and building a movement to transform individuals, communities, the church and the world.” Originating in Chicago, Wallis was lured to Washington by Institute forPolicyStudies....
...In an interview in 1979, Wallis expressed the hope that “more Christians will come to view the world through Marxist eyes.” Wallis, funded by Soros, has served on Obama’s White House Advisory Council on Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnership since 2008.
It is clear that the religious left has penetrated organized religion for decades.... More important, they worship a Marxist State instead of God. Are they using “faith as a weapon” to destroy religion?”....
Janine Turner..another brainy and beautiful conservative woman. Right on point.
They would have laughed him out of town.
But he wasn't THE ONE.....
Environmental concerns, climate change, global warming, Earth day.. These are tactics used to indoctrinate children into saluting the Earth rather than our flag. Once that’s achieved “global governance” is more palatable and our national sovereignty disappears.
Actually, Obama's motives might be better dissected using Machiavelli as our guide. His actual malevolence is not captured by a gestalt of ideologically-inspired fecklessness (a la Jimmy Carter), but could be expressed adequately by itemized comparison of his agenda to that of V. I. Lenin, who I think is his actual model.
