“Obama energy policy: Pander to the left, lie to the poor and working class and enrich his friends.”…Citizen Wells

From the Washington Times February 24, 2012.

“Sessions: Obama ‘defeatist’ on rising gas prices”

“President Obama’s indignant defense this week of his administration’s energy policies has done nothing to deter GOP critics, as gas prices continue to rise amid worries that their continued climb could throw the economic recovery off course.

Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, the ranking Republican on the Senate Budget Committee, said in a letter to Mr. Obama Friday that the president was taking a “defeatist view” when it comes to trying to reduce gas prices.

“I reject the defeatist view that says the nation that won two world wars, pioneered space travel, and overcame the Soviet empire is now helpless in the face of high prices at the pump,” Mr. Sessions wrote. “We are not at the mercy of dictators, cartels and events beyond our control.”

In a speech in Miami Thursday, the president blamed the current spike prices on Wall Street speculators reacting to instability in the Middle East, most notably in Iran — not the amount of oil drilled in the U.S.

“There are no quick fixes to this problem,” Mr. Obama said. “You know we can’t just drill our way to lower gas prices.”

In his letter, Mr. Sessions echoed the views of other Republican critics in arguing that lifting Obama administration barriers to drilling would go a long way in helping drive down the price at the pump.

“Powerful action to harness America’s untapped oil and gas resources would place downward pressure on prices and speculation in the short run, and, by surging global supply, would serve to keep prices low in the future,” Mr. Sessions continued. “Crucially, it would also provide millions of Americans with good-paying, private-sector jobs; produce substantial royalties for local, state and federal governments; reduce our enormous trade imbalance; and put an end to our huge wealth transfer from American to competitors overseas.”

Mr. Sessions offered a list of proposals, including restoring the bipartisan 2010-2015 offshore lease plan to ensure that the 31 pending lease sales are completed expeditiously, abandoning Mr. Obama’s proposal to increase taxes and fees for oil and gas companies, and approving the massive Canada-to-Texas Keystone XL pipeline and expediting its completion.

“Your administration only directed one lease sale in 2011 and has announced just one lease sale for 2012, far short of the number of sales that would have occurred over this period under the original 2010-2015 plan that your administration discarded,” he wrote.

Mr. Sessions also urged Mr. Obama to “take all necessary steps” to accelerate the leasing and permitting process for domestic shale oil production and maximize oil production from federal lands, which are now producing just 714 million barrels a year — a 16 percent decline from what was projected five years ago.

In addition, the Alabama Republican called on the president to direct the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Energy and other federal bodies to grant all necessary waivers and approvals to oil and gas refineries to facilitate maximum production at minimum cost.

“Refinery expenses comprise 11 percent of the price for gasoline that Americans pay at the pump, but your administration has imposed numerous regulations that have driven refining costs up, not down,” he contended.

A White House spokesman said the president is particularly sensitive to the impact rising gas prices are having on family budgets across the country, but said there’s no silver bullet to solve the problem.

“If your answer to this challenge of rising gas prices is just drilling for oil, you’re not going to find a very good answer because an ‘all-of-the-above’ approach is required,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters Friday. “So that also is why the president is pursuing a range of other things: investments in biofuels, in renewable energy, wind and solar.”

The Obama administration is also backing the construction of the first nuclear power plant in the U.S. in 30 years, Mr. Earnest added.”

    James O’Keefe Registers Tim Tebow and Tom Brady to vote in Minnesota
    Election officials advise no ID necessary to register Timothy Tebow and Thomas Brady to vote in Minnesota. Absentee ballots are discussed, voter registration forms are given out, and Election officials blow the whistle on potential fraud in their own state.

  2. Obama Biased Indiana Elections Officials Vote to Put Obama on Ballot, Ignore Law and Fraud Evidence, Audio, First Hand Account

    Posted by By Pamela Barnett at 25 February, at 01 : 36 AM Print

    Biased Indiana Elections officials call objectors “birthers”, don’t address and matters of law and ignore evidence that Obama is using a social security number that was never assigned to him. When Obama started using this stolen SSN he was most likely an Indonesian citizen as State Department documents prove that he was known as Soebarkah.

    First hand account here, unedited….

  3. Mornin folks!

    After seeing the article below I recollected also seeing the video of “predictions” by John Paul Jackson who mentioned an attempt by Muslim extremists on Obama’s life but the regime will deny the real perpetrators and spin it towards the “racist” conservatives. Some of the comments are, well, interesting there……

    Top Iranian Commander: “Burn the White House… Hang the Commanders” to Relieve Pain Caused by Burning of Quran
    Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, February 25, 2012, 10:27 AM

    Shobaart

    The top Iranian military Commander today said, “Nothing but burning the White House can relieve the wound of us, the Muslims, caused by the Burning of Quran in the US… And hang the commanders.”
    Fars News reported:

    A top Iranian military commander said the US helplessness in the confrontation against Islam is the real cause underlying the burning of the Muslims’ Holy Book by American soldiers in Afghanistan, and stressed that nothing but burning the White House and hanging the US commanders responsible for this cowardly action can relieve the Muslims’ pain.

    “The US has committed such an ugly action and burnt Quran because of the heavy slap it has been given by Islam,” Commander of Iran’s Basij (volunteer) force Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi said on Saturday.

    He stressed Muslims’ sensitivity to the crimes underway in Afghanistan by the US forces, and said Muslims do not accept the US apology, because it makes numerous military mistakes and then just asks for the Afghans’ apology, and this is not acceptable.

    “Nothing but burning the White House can relieve the wound of us, the Muslims, caused by the Burning of Quran in the US,” he underscored.

    “Their apology can be accepted only by hanging their commanders; hanging their commanders means an apology,” he reiterated.

    Obama has sent a letter to his Afghan counterpart Karzai, apologizing for the burning of copies of the Holy Quran.

  6. act of valor movie i heard was great. the intention is obama to use this in next few months to prop up his supposed bin laden kill. thats why it has no politcal sway.

    There is another way of looking at the Indiana SCUM. They have chosen the SWORD,and now they will ultimately DIE by it. It is obvious that they are a gang of Soetoro plants. This is something which I have known for some time. This is in part the reason why I take issue with JBJD. Until we have our Federal Court system back NOTHING will move forward that is designed to IMPEDE, or otherwise convict Soetoro. To even attempt such hearings are a waste of resources and time. BTW I still have my suspicions as to the INTENT of JBJD as well.

  9. as respects LC’s posting 3 bills. compare them. that’s the point.

    and check out the $20… and the signatures.

    as respects the Indiana disinterested inquisition: the reason they couldn not put in a default ruling is because they were there representing barky.Listen to the audio and you will hear evidence he was there.

    How do public utilities get away with this?
    ———-
    “TEXANS DEMAND FREEDOM FROM SMART METERS”

    ““Petitioners who have been subjected to forced or compelled installation of smart meters or have been exposed to RF and EMF radiation generated by smart meters fraudulently installed on neighboring homes and businesses have experienced difficulties with symptoms of insomnia, headaches, dizziness, nausea and other symptoms,” states the petition, submitted to the Public Utilities Commission of Texas by attorney Tom Cryer on behalf of Devvy Kidd, John Kidd and more than 100 others.

    Cryer said his goal is to obtain a ruling on the dangers of the meters based on the health risks they pose.

    “It’s like rushing thalidomide to the market … and not knowing the consequences,” he said, referring to the 1950s and 1960s use of the drug that caused major birth defects for children whose mothers used it.

    He said the problem is the radio signals generated by the units.””

    I personally believe that there are only two options left. The first is BEATING SOETORO at the ballot box. If that fails then in all probability there will be armed insurrection. Should the latter occur then it wil require a gigantic number of people to converge upon the voting centers. I am talking 200,000,000 votes. then the electors will be forced to elect whoever wins all of the 200,000,000 votes. I personally believe that there is only one candidate having the necessary maturity of character to win such a majority. But I will not name the candidate. I will leave that up to you to decide for yourselves. Of course I know who it is. If you nominate the WRONG candidate he will lose miserably against Soetoro. If you think that another 4 years of Soetoro is to your likeing then send a DUMMY against him. I personally think that far too many Americans still think that Soetoro is their Messiah. These are the SNOTNOSED child prodigy, overeducated wordsmiths, who otherwise twist,bend,hammer,and reword our laws to mean whatever they think that the laws should mean…..then they try very hard to impose their versions, upon the rest of us.

  12. ………..the CHILD PRODIGIES work in Concert with the LIBERAL MORONS who have HIJACKED the Democratic party. Bear in mind though, that in politics you can only be hijacked as a political party if you sympathise with the HIJACKERS. Now we are constantly reminded by those who teach our childern that they are the only KNOWLEDGEABLE, and morally responsible people left in our country. Yet it is these same school teachers who sometimes go to the extreme of sexually attacking our children,and/or giving kindergarteners CONDOMS to play with. I believe that a hell of a lot of parents are indeed looking upon all of this as a direct attempt by the mentally unbalanced teachers to poison the minds of such tiny children, with PERPETRATED FILTH.

  13. ……….I hasten to add though that I do not condemn ALL school teachers. I am certain that the majority are trying to educate our children in a morally responsible manner, but have found themselves under corrupted scholl officials who themselves have sick,and otherwise DEVIATE mentalities. But the teachers DO NOT have to follow what they perceive as a FLAWED supervisory body. The teachers have the power to SAY NO. Do they say no? Most of the time they are willing to put it to a vote. Deviated curriculum should NEVER be put to a vote. The teachers should unite and REFUSE to teach ANYTHING IMMORAL.or of sexually deviated nature. Again do thety? NO. So perhaps it is time to start weeding out the PERPETRATORS of such abuse against our children. Such persons should lose their licensure to teach AT ALL at any level. If a teacher goes along with teaching INFECTED material then he /she IS COMPLICIT with the actual perpetrators.

  16. Great info SueK.

  17. No doubt about it, CW. I have some very intelligent friends who for all intents and purposes are normal people other than the fact that they “don’t think Obama is doing a bad job”. It’s almost insane that certain people are totally incapable of seeing through this charade. So the propaganda is working….

  18. History repeating.
    They obviously are not thinking.

  19. Paxton they cannot be too intelligent if they think Obama is doing a good job. Let’s face the facts, most people in academia have never had to struggle to make a living. Being liberal and tenured has a tendency to make ones brain dormant, moreover the charade is nothing more than normal behavior among colleagues who were thaught the most liberal of liberal arts. These people you’re referring too probable never had to make a payroll, and have been spending too much time in Disney World. My advise get some new friends.

  22. Why is Obama in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood?
    By Ted Belman

    Dr. Essam Abdallah, an Egyptian liberal intellectual, in an article published last October in the leading liberal pan-Arab journal Elaph, refers to certain reports coming out of Washington:

    These reports reveal the depth of the below-the-surface coordination between the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), Hamas, Hezbollah, the Iranian regime and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Syria, Tunisia, Libya and Jordan. This bloc of regimes and organizations is now becoming the greatest Islamist radical lobby ever to penetrate and infiltrate the White House, Congress, the State Department and the main decision making centers of the US government. All of this is happening at a time when the US government is going through its most strategically dangerous period in modern times because of its need to confront the Iranian Mullahs regime, which is expanding in the Middle East, as well as penetrating the United States, via powerful and influential allies.

    I know some of you won’t go to Orlys site because of fear of a virus so I will post the letter here.

    It’s strongly worded and things are heating up between the Citizens and the criminals.

    Please forward this email to the people below, since their email addresses are NOT readily available from the Indiana gov website.

    Do you realize what you are engaging in, by NOT challenging the candidate that is currently serving as OUR president.

    His father was NEVER and American citizen. This is an UNDISPUTABLE FACT. This ALONE disqualifies him from serving in the government position
    that his is currently holding.

    You are ALL engaging in multiple charges of VOTER FRAUD, and other Fraudulent actions in your part, for not accepting the challenge by Orly Taitz.

    Just as in Germany, after the war, you will NOT be able to hide behind the words- I WAS ONLY DOING WHAT I WAS TOLD.

    This is REALLY simple – Obama needs to produce documents that shows that he is eligible to serve in the capacity as president.

    The ONUS is NOT on the challenger. They only have to present the challenge, which they have done.

    The next step is CRYSTAL CLEAR – Obama is required by the laws of your own state, to PROVE that he is eligible PERIOD.

    If you leave this AS IT STANDS, you ALL need to step down from your positions, and participate NO further in the politics of INDIANA!!!!!!!

    You are making yourselves the enemy of the citizens of Indiana, by IGNORING the procedures you are required by law to uphold.

    The only conclusion that can be acknowledged if you ALL let this stand is that you are ALL CRIMINALS.

    -Carl

  33. Bob,

    I certainly Stand behind “ALL” attorney’s and “EVERY” Citizen that files, investigates, put their necks out on the line to expose Obama – the DNC, ect..

    However, I respectfully disagree that if everyone doesn’t jump behind one, then we the people are somehow criminals? That’s a bit harsh, considering many historical facts.

  34. This guy sounds mad! Read this!

    Obama spends million of tax payer dollars to defend himself against all comers in at least two dozen lawsuits demanding to see his records. So far, no court in America will hear the case on its merits. Prove me wrong.
    Like pimps, his handlers keep their money-maker Obama under their control, toe-ing the line with tried and true drugs of choice: ego, power, perks, male lovers, and crack cocaine. Prove me wrong.

  35. Hi bob,
    I saw that this morning at “The Radio Patriot” which is Andrea Shea King’s website. Are you sure she is not the author? Maybe you should say “This gal sounds really mad!”

  36. William,
    I never said anyone had to back Orly or anyone. I just didn’t want anyone to catch a virus by logging on to her site. I have read here in the past about people picking up a virus by visiting there.

    I go to many of sites, and last night my nephew cleaned my computer of unnecessary junk and it was discovered my computer had been hacked. He gave it a thorough cleaning, but I don’t want to direct anyone to peril.
