Obama wants high gas prices

source: http://earthhopenetwork.net/Corporate_Bush.htm

That’s right you read it right.  Following hurricane Katrina gasoline prices shot up to $5 a gallon here in Atlanta and near $4 around the country.  Left-wing nutjobs and Democrats of all flavors screamed accusations that GW Bush was in bed with “big oil.”

I heard my left-leaning friends complaining that Bush wanted the high prices to force more off-shore drilling here and thus line the greedy pockets of his Texas oil-friends.  Who didn’t believe the invasion of Iraq was all about seizing the oil?

C-O-N-SPIRACY

When Bush was president it was all a conspiracy.  Later when Americans were demanding more domestic drilling, Nancy “Dingbat” Pelosi shut the lights off in the House of Representatives so Republicans could not debate solutions to the problem of high gasoline prices.

Today gasoline prices are back to Katrina levels and it is the Democrats running things.  Where are the conspiracy nuts?  Where are the accusations?  Strangely silent.  Google Bush and Oil and see the venom that pops up, do the same for Obama and virtually nothing returns.  Obama claims he has nothing to do with the high prices, it’s a big oil conspiracy or perhaps speculators.  Anyone but him.  (I know that’s his MO.)

Somehow, though, his predecessor was at fault in 2005 but today the Presidency has no influence on oil prices. To that I say BS. Continue reading

BP Rig Disaster Too Perfect

Last month in an effort to draw Conservatives and “moderate” Democrats to support (or at lease not vigorously oppose) his Cap & Trade Bill,  President Obama decided to permit limited oil drilling off the U.S. coast.  Almost instantly environmental groups were responding with outrage.

Environmentalists missed the point.  Being so focused upon the tree bark they can’t see the tree much less the forest.

President Obama never intended to allow significant oil drilling.  It was all a ploy to push through a huge energy tax that will eventually kill domestic oil drilling as well as what’s left of the American coal industry.

Nevertheless, left-wing nuts went crazy.  From where I sit it seems the President could have ignored them until enough back-room deals were cut to pass his so-called Cap & Trade bill, but the pressure mounted.  Then as if an answer to some environmentalist’s prayer; out of nowhere and perfectly timed, an oil rig explodes in the Gulf of Mexico.

Kooks In Copenhagen


The Copenhagen meeting has been described as a “circus”. An array of fringe groups are attending. It looks like the Copenhagen climate meet is melting down under the weight of its own kookiness.

• The delegation from Bolivia will be pushing for a Universal Declaration of Mother Earth Rights, which the country’s President Evo Morales says “supersede the rights of human beings.”

• A group called GenderCC (Women for Climate Justice) rejects using distractions like “numbers” and “target dates” to track and fight climate change, and doesn’t appear very interested in the environment itself. Instead, it hopes to implement “gender-mainstreaming” and ensure that the U.N. guarantees the fullest participation of “feminist scientists” at every level.

• The Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University is putting on an exhibit to “explore how thoughts affect matter and how a shift in consciousness can transform current deteriorating conditions” for the environment.

• International Planned Parenthood is putting on a show about how to increase contraception in the third world to stop babies — who later become adults — from ruining the environment.

• Many others appear redundant, including nine events on climate justice and 39 on a single U.N. cause celebre called REDD — reducing emissions from deforestation in developing countries — which adds up to well over a 40-hour workweek of seemingly repetitive hearings on a single topic.

They should try to gain some credibility. Right now, they have none. Al Gore even canceled his $3200/head Power Point presentation of new “data”. His new book is based on those “facts”.

DOH!
