  • Could Sabotage Cause A Surge In Oil Prices?

    Oilprice.com ^ | 26-04-2016 | Dwayne Purvis
    Hidden among the ballyhoo about a collaborative freeze in production growth, a less visible but far more effective dynamic has affected, and likely will affect, oil supply and price: military intervention. There have always been three routes out of the unsustainably low prices: natural decline/growth of supply/demand, collaboration constraints on supply, and military conflict. Since January, while the talk of a growth freeze had no effect whatsoever on actual supply, the natural decline/growth did reduce the overhang by a couple of hundred thousand barrels of oil per day. Meanwhile, two little-discussed and less-understood military interventions took a combined 900,000 bopd...

    In the wake of the New York primary, there is a sense that some of the GOP elites are making their peace with the Trumpocalypse. To be sure, some of the party’s leaders are resisting Trump’s faux charm offensive, but there is also a palpable mood of defeatism among the Invertebrate. Yet in hallway chatter here, there was a growing sense of resignation about Trump as the nominee That mood is likely to spread after this week’s expected primary wins for Trump in the northeast. Some party leaders aren’t waiting. Reince Priebus is calling on anti-Trump activists to unite behind...
  • Stopping Trump: Karl Rove Leading Massive Effort Within Republican Party To Squash Trump’s Candidacy

    Donald Trump could end up destroying the Republican Party if he were to become the 2016 presidential nominee, famed strategist Karl Rove is warning party leaders. With Trump rolling in the first few states to vote, and polls showing him with significant leads in other upcoming contests, it appears difficult to stop his momentum toward the nomination. He has generated the most enthusiasm among voters, many of whom are tired of the same establishment candidates. That now has many within the Republican establishment worried, as evidenced by Karl Rove's address to major donors earlier this month. Rove, who led George...

    The ACLU and its friends are close to admitting that there weren't enough examples of real "torture" for them to complain about. Having sued to get images from evidence files of military legal cases, the ACLU finally got 198 images involving soldiers accused of mistreating prisoners. There were about 2,000 photos, but most are withheld because, quite understandably, the military doesn't want to provoke the the jihadists. The ACLU doesn't care if it provokes more violence. They want to see all the photos no matter who gets hurt. But this wasn't interrogation, either by the military or the CIA. It...

    WASHINGTON (NNS) -- The Navy's revised cost estimate to restore USS Miami (SSN 755) is approximately $450 million, with an estimated date of completion for the repairs of April 30, 2015 officials announced Aug. 22. The estimate includes 10 percent variability due to the unique nature of the repair and the cost impacts of shifting the planned maintenance availabilities of other ships and submarines. Navy is committed to delivering the submarine back to the fleet with no operational limitations. Once returned to service, Miami will serve for an additional 10 years with five planned full-length deployments, ready to respond to...

Pelosi said the offices of some Republican lawmakers "are not giving information to constituents for how they can avail themselves" of the new program. Republicans are withholding the information, Pelosi said, "to undermine the Affordable Care Act." Michael Steel, a spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said the GOP had nothing to do with the troubled rollout. “The problems with Healthcare.gov, the associated 1-800 phone number, and the ‘chat’...

    Images like those below are chilling to those of us in the shooting community, as they should be. Sometimes we forget just how dangerous our hobby can be and we become lax. When we become lax we accidentally double charge a round while reloading, or we hear a pop vs. a bang and fail to check the bore of our firearm before firing the next round. We sweep others with the muzzle. We put our finger on the trigger when we shouldn’t. And sometimes we forget to wear eye protection. The AR15 pictured here exploded unexpectedly on its owner this...

    Egyptian authorities fearful of a monopoly on Nile waters received agreement from Khartoum to build an airbase in Sudan, to launch attacks on Ethiopian damming facilities, claims the anonymous media outlet; Wikileaks. Wikileaks has leaked files allegedly from the Texas-based global intelligence company, Stratfor, which quote an anonymous "high-level Egyptian source," claiming the Egyptian ambassador to Lebanon said in 2010 his nation would do anything to prevent the secession of South Sudan because of the political implications it will have for Egypt's access to the Nile. The Nile is vital in providing fresh water to the people and agricultural projects...

Panetta warned of a potential “cyber-Pearl Harbor” involving a possible attack on the electric grid, Mother Nature took the cue and hit the East Coast with a storm that left millions of us for days without electricity from the grid. Some said silent thanks for that old generator they’d thought to stick in the garage. Though it wasn’t a cyberattack, but Mother Nature gave parts of the grid a good lashing anyway. On my country road south of Annapolis, two transformers were blown down from their perches on telephone poles, and...
