  • Arab oil handouts waste billions (skimps on poor, distorts economy)

    05/07/2012 5:37:50 AM PDT · by Milagros · 3 replies
    System skimps on poor, but Arab rulers dare not roll back political hot potato Agence France-Presse April 20, 2012 Arab countries are wasting tens of billions of dollars on subsidies for fuel and energy but dare not roll them back for fear of a political backlash, a UN report said. The UN Development Program (UNDP) report said six of the world's 10 biggest subsidizers are in the Arab world, led by Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. People in the three countries pay less than a third of world prices for car fuel and electricity. The annual cost for Saudi Arabia...
  • Ever notice how the Arab oil interests control our economy?

    05/07/2012 5:14:29 AM PDT · by Milagros · 14 replies
    Subject: Ever notice how the Arab oil interests control our economy? Author: Chris Kloss Date: 13 Jul 2009 IMHO, if the price of oil had remained low, the financial crisis would have been of short duration. Oil price affects just about everything in our economy, not just gasoline for cars. A rapid increase in the price of oil requires a reallocation of the money people and businesses spend. Businesses must raise prices and, one result of this might be a lower demand. Businesses need more money to replace inventory. Persons and businesses on the edge cannot meet their financial obligations....

    1. Track Prices Via Websites and Mobile Apps.. 2. Inconvenience Yourself.. 3. Fill Up at the Right Time... Urban legend says gas prices are lowest during hours when most folks are sleeping, from midnight to 5am. Laskoski debunks that myth, but says there is a best time to fill-up that most people wouldn't think of: Wednesday. Gas prices are highest on weekends when the most people are out on the road. Filling up in the middle of the week saves you both sleep and money. 4. Mind the Fine Print on Your Credit Card & Reward Programs.. 5. Get Out...

    Today, Bard shows, the Arab lobby's goals include feeding America's oil addiction, obtaining more sophisticated weaponry, and weakening our alliance with a democratic Israel. [...] The most powerful member of the Arab lobby is Saudi Arabia, which has a nearly eighty-year relationship with the United States. From the earliest days, when American companies first discovered oil in the Arabian Peninsula, the Saudis have used a variety of tactics, including threats and bribes, to coerce U.S. policy makers to ignore their human rights abuses, support of terrorism, and opposition to American interests. Today, Bard shows, the Arab lobby's goals include feeding...

    As USS New York pre pares to join the fleet, she will enter a world of crises. As we obsess over worthless Afghan real estate, truly vital problems loom abroad. Violent challenges to our security and strategic position are slighted or ignored, while a combination of politics, pride and inertia bind us to a distant land of marginal relevance. The crises highlighted below are not in order of priority. Any of them could take a painful bite out of Washington's complacency: Iraq: Given its strategic location, iconic importance in the Arab world and vast oil reserves, Iraq matters to us....

They'll just start raising the price of oil again and destroy the economy... I also happen to think that $150 oil destroyed the world economically. And as soon as the world comes back, OPEC will raise its ugly head and destroy it again. So somebody better sit -- and I hope it's our president -- somebody better sit down with OPEC right now and say, "Listen, we're going to straighten this mess out, but...

    BLAME OPEC 1.30.2009 This thought just came to me: "The American People" and the liberal media are so busy blaming Wall Street - not to mention the entire French Nation is currently rioting against the amorphous category of all "banks" - why is no one blaming OPEC? This summer, gas was at a beyond record level - people were spending nearly 4x as much on gas as they did the year before. Clearly, this is going to cut into consumer spending. When is Obama going to call out Saudi Arabia? If we did not have a world-wide OIL CARTEL and...

    Chavez Seeks End To Democracy In Venezuela February 11th, 2009 By PATRICK EDABURN Over the eight years of the Bush administration, many on the far left warned that he was going to bring an end to democracy in the United States, that he was going to end elections, ban dissent, and so on. Such complaints have been raised against most recent adminstrations and in every case they were wholly unfounded. But in Venezuela it looks like things are heading just that direction. President Chavez is already in position as a virtual dictator, with total control of almost all forms of...

"Everybody here knows what has happened to a gallon of gas, our lowest income Americans are hurting the most, some of them can't even get to work," said the Republican presidential candidate. "We are sending $700 billion a year to countries that don't like us very much and some of that money ends up in the hands of terrorist organizations.

    KINDA MAKES YOU WONDER... John H. at Powerline writes: For several decades, the Democratic Party has pursued policies designed to drive up the cost of petroleum, and therefore gas at the pump. Remarkably, the Democrats don't seem to have taken much of a political hit from the current spike in gas prices. Probably that's because most people don't realize how different the two parties' energy policies have been. Congressman Roy Blunt put together these data to highlight the differences between House Republicans and House Democrats on energy policy: ANWR Exploration House Republicans: 91% SupportedHouse Democrats: 86% Opposed Coal-to-LiquidHouse Republicans: 97%...

    Here's the "thing", when John McCain spoke, he spoke full volume, to the point and full of substance, when Obama speaks (including on the middle east), it's all AIR, or (shall I use -- at this juncture -- Hillary's phrase, he's all 'ZEROX'). One would have to wait for any beginning of truth in these "pledges"... until Obama starts realizing that there's nothing to "talk" about with an Islamic Hitler that wants US/Israel to disappear because they interfere with his Islamofascistic-Messianic ambition and his aim to control the world via oil, nukes and terror. Only when Obama will start addressing...

    Saudi Arabia, which has aggressively shaved its oil output in a battle to shore up prices, will reduce production by another 158,000 barrels per day beginning Thursday and more cuts are on the way, according to a media report. The Saudi cut is seen as an aggressive move to keep the price of the U.S. benchmark crude above $55 a barrel, The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday in its online edition, quoting Roger Diwan, an analyst at PFC Energy, a Washington industry consultancy. The latest cut means Saudi Arabia will have reduced production by about 1 million barrels per day...

    The petrodollar pipeline that recycles billions from oil producers back to the U.S. economy has turned crude-laden nations from Norway to Iran into the world’s biggest sources of global savings. These nations are also key sources of foreign demand for U.S. assets. Now new research predicts a trend that could affect the U.S. economy nearly as much as swings on crude exchanges: Oil producers might be looking to diversify how they spend and invest their cash. Such changes are worth watching — mainly because the flood of money generated for oil exporters by sustained high crude prices has become a...

"We are striving to be the best friend of China in the African continent," said Zahawi Ibrahim Malik, Sudan's information minister, as he announced Mr Hu's latest stop on his tour of Africa. Khartoum has much to be grateful for. China has become a key player in Sudan's burgeoning oil industry, which poured some £3.2 billion into the...
