Matt Damon's Troubling UAE Friends
The Hayride ^ | 8 Oct 12 | Christopher Holton

Posted on 10/08/2012 7:02:52 PM PDT by LSUfan

Any American who has been paying attention over the past 20 years realizes that the real key to America’s national security is energy independence.

In short, we’re funding both sides in a global Islamic insurgency characterized by violent terrorist groups such as Al Qaeda. This is happening because we are dependent on foreign sources of energy. Most of OPEC—even our so-called “allies”—is hostile toward us in some way, shape or form.

The nations that produce and export much of the world’s oil are populated by wealthy sheikhs and mullahs who support Jihad in various ways, including by funding charities that in turn fund jihadist organizations. One way or another, virtually all of the money comes from oil and gas revenues.

That’s why it is so vital that America work to end our dependence on foreign oil and gas by developing domestic sources of energy. We need to stop funding our enemies.

Unfortunately, not everyone sees it that way.

One of them is the fanatical leftist actor Matt Damon.

Stop pipelines. No fracking. Don’t drill the Gulf.

Then complain when CA gas prices are $6?

Don’t Dems care about the working class amd poor most effected by high gas prices?

I disagree.. anyone not asleep for the last 20 years knows the american democrat party is America greatest enemy..

Not The Arabs, Alkida, the Russians, or Chinese..
The democrat party is changing America form a republic into a democracy..
And the republicans are doing literally nothing about it..
I never heard George Bush call America a republic, he always call it a democracy..
He must believe that.. knowing different.. he’s a Yale man and should know..

Most Americans have been brain washed to believe America is a democracy..
Yes; even republicans

This is treason on a grand scale..
America could be and probably already is the Great Sodom..

Its obvious Barack Obama is America’s punishment.. for gross crimes..
Punishment for four more years is looming and will probably happen..
Need I remind some... “There is NO FREE LUNCH”.. payment is due..

Where does the idiot Matt Damon expect the oil to come from to power all his toys?

Oh, gee, maybe he is a hypocrite...

Damon has put his name on a movie that is due out in December called Promised Land.

Promised Land is nothing more than a propaganda film dedicated to attacking key components of efforts by the US domestic energy industry to develop sources of natural gas over here. Reportedly it is littered with unsubstantiated claims about environmental damage and such.

But here’s the interesting part, which you may have already seen.

Who do you suppose is funding this film aimed at discouraging some especially successful domestic energy programs in the USA?

OPEC member the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the wealthy monarchy in the Persian Gulf. That’s right, the company behind the film is a UAE-government owned media firm.

The Heritage Foundation published a report on the UAE regime’s underwriting of this anti-American movie late in September.

It turns out that Image Media Abu Dhabi, the state-owned firm which financed Promised Land, is chaired by “His Excellency” Mohamed Mubarak Al Mazrouei, who also reports to a member of the  Supreme Petroleum Council of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company and Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
