Trick Language In Senate Bill Turns All Gun Owners Into Felons….

April 8, 2013

RED ALERT: Harry Reid Sneaks National Gun Registry Into Bill

Excerpted from National Review Online:

Public-opinion polls about “universal background checks” for gun sales show widespread support. While President Obama and Mayor Bloomberg talk about “gun sales,” the actual legislation moving through Congress aims to regulate far more than sales. It would turn almost every gun owner into a felon. The trick is that the language under consideration applies not only to sales but also to “transfers,” which are defined to include innocent activities such as letting your spouse borrow your gun for a few hours.

Consider, for example, Senate bill S.649, which the Senate will soon take up for debate. The background-check portion of the bill, Charles Schumer’s “Fix Gun Checks Act,” is based on model language that the Bloomberg gun-control lobby is pushing all over the country.

To see how the Bloomberg bill makes felons of people who do not sell guns, consider a woman who buys a rifle when she is 25 years old. She keeps the rifle her entire life. Yet over her lifetime, she — like most gun owners — engages in dozens of firearms “transfers.” She brings the unloaded rifle to a friend’s house, for instance, because the friend is thinking of buying a gun and wants to learn more about guns. The friend handles the rifle for a few minutes before handing it back. Another time, the woman lends the gun to her niece, who takes it on a camping trip for the weekend.

Congressman Gardner to Salazar: Proposed BLM fracking rules violate state water rights

December 1, 2012

The never ending Obama quest to destroy the oil industry, continues. How you like the Obama low gas prices… LOL!! Especially you illiterate voters, enjoy.

WASHINGTON D.C. – Congressman Cory Gardner (R-CO) is pushing back on the Bureau of Land Management’s proposed rules for hydraulic fracturing, saying that they represent a clear violation of state water laws. In a letter to Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, Gardner urges him not to let the BLM duplicate existing state regulations or encroach on state water authority.

“BLM’s proposed rules could overstep their statutory authority over water, threatening all water right owners and undercutting the current system of state allocation and administration of water rights,” Gardner wrote. “BLM’s proposal creates federal approvals and mitigations for water source, water use, and water disposal. The rules give BLM veto authority over water use related to oil and natural gas development on federal lands, which is entirely inappropriate and an affront to Colorado system of prior appropriation.”

Also of concern is that BLM’s draft rules could actually discourage water recycling and reuse during the fracking process, which would be especially damaging to resources in the arid West. Gardner has always believed that the states, not the federal government, are best suited to manage their own natural resources.

BLM plans to finalize its rules by the end of the year. Gardner’s bipartisan letter was signed by 43 members of the House.

Obama’s Energy Plan … $10 A Gallon For Morons Voters

November 9, 2012

LOL, how can people be so stupid … Can I have my Walmart card now? They Better Give Me A Walmart Gift Card Or Something’… CHICAGOLAND: Thousands Line Up For Job Fair…

The Interior Department on Friday issued a final plan to close 1.6 million acres of federal land in the West originally slated for oil shale development.

The proposed plan would fence off a majority of the initial blueprint laid out in the final days of the George W. Bush administration. It faces a 30-day protest period and a 60-day process to ensure it is consistent with local and state policies. After that, the department would render a decision for implementation.

The move is sure to rankle Republicans, who say President Obama’s grip on fossil fuel drilling in federal lands is too tight.

Interior’s Bureau of Land Management cited environmental concerns for the proposed changes. Among other things, it excised lands with “wilderness characteristics” and areas that conflicted with sage grouse habitats.

Destroy America one way or the other…


Here Is The Reason We Buy Muslim Nation’s Oil, Liberals Have Forced America to Not Use Their Oil

May 14, 2012

This time, to say, Canadians are not as stupid as Americans. In both cases, the governments control the oil, Canada surface mines theirs, we to hide ours from the public. One thing to know, the oil sands of Alberta, are just an extension of the shale oil in the USA. They are one and the same formation.

The President has recently made a habit of falsely claiming that oil self-sufficiency is impossible because the US has just 2% of the world’s oil reserves. However, congressional testimony given Thursday May 10th reinforces that America is exceedingly rich in natural resources, especially a type of oil reserves known as oil shale.

Actually we the USA have more oil that the world’s known reserves. And coal, we have about 30% of the world’s supply of recoverable coal. And natural gas, no one really knows. Why, we simply have not allowed the gas companies to do any meaningful surveys.

However, the testimony also pointed out that the future development of these resources, 72 percent of which is controlled by the Bureau of Land Management, is largely up to the federal government. The present administration doesn’t seem very eager to get at those (or other) natural resources.

Yep, you want energy independence instead for failed solar and wind companies funded by your tax money, we can do this.

The GAO testimony last week highlighted just how significant the oil shale reserves in the western United States are:

Being able to tap the vast amounts of oil locked within U.S. oil shale formations could go a long way toward satisfying the nation’s future oil demands. The Green River Formation—an assemblage of over 1,000 feet of sedimentary rocks that lie beneath parts of Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming—contains the world’s largest deposits of oil shale. USGS estimates that the Green River Formation contains about 3 trillion barrels of oil, and about half of this may be recoverable, depending on available technology and economic conditions. The Rand Corporation, a nonprofit research organization, estimates that 30 to 60 percent of the oil shale in the Green River Formation can be recovered. At the midpoint of this estimate, almost half of the 3 trillion barrels of oil would be recoverable. This is an amount about equal to the entire world’s proven oil reserves.

The report makes clear what this level of resource development could mean for our economy:

Development of oil shale resources could lead to the creation of jobs, increases in wealth, and increases in tax and royalty payments to federal and state governments for oil produced on their lands. The extent of these benefits, however, is unknown at this time because the ultimate size of the industry is uncertain.

In a bit of spin worthy of George Orwell, Obama calls this his “all of the above” energy strategy.

Note the GAO presenter did not say what it would mean to our economy with the current Preesy in charge.

No one cares about the American consumer in today’s regime plan, the regime, well are they Americans, or Indonesians and Kenyans. It’s a bleak new world, our foreign Preesy paints for America. Hey you people elected him, so fix it. Our Coomies are working on borrowed time.


Senators Call Obama On His Energy Lies

March 29, 2012

Today, Senators David Vitter, Jeff Sessions and John Cornyn called Obama on his lies in the form of a letter to Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar. Their indictment is devastating:

Dear Secretary Salazar:

We are concerned with the veracity of statements you made in recent weeks regarding domestic energy production on our federal resources. These statements are similar to claims made by other members of the Administration including the President himself. As you may know, the federal government owns almost 2.5 billion acres of mineral estate, an area larger than the entire land mass of the United States. As director of the Bureau of Land Management, Robert Abbey, testified this month, oil production on our federal property is actually down 14% and offshore production from federal areas is down 17% from only a year ago. Just last week, the Congressional Research Service issued a report revealing that 96 percent of the increase in domestic oil production since 2007 has occurred on non-federal lands. It further revealed that in 2011 production on federal public lands has actually declined by an average of 275,000 barrels per day. Oil production on private lands is indeed up year-over-year, but the Administration does not manage private lands and should not attempt to take credit for private market decisions.

Oil production on federal lands increased in 2009 and 2010 as a result of leasing and permitting decisions made before your Administration took office. However, the falloff in leasing and permitting actions under the Obama Administration is apparent, and even your own Energy Information Administration anticipates continued falloff in production in 2012 and beyond.

LOOK Who Is Lying About Drilling

March 23, 2012

When the president says he is opening up millions of acres for drilling exploration in the United States, Cavuto says you might want to thank the previous presidents instead, including Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.

According to the Bureau of Land Management, the current administration has actually decreased approval of drilling permits by 36 percent. Even under Bill Clinton, his administration increased the approval of drilling permits by 58 percent, and George W. Bush increased approval by 116 percent.

Cavuto showed a graphic of current drilling sites in the United States vs. the amount of land that we ‘could’ drill on. You can decide for yourself:

Obama,s 2% laugh line is dispelled by this graphic, produced by our very own government EIA:

Shale oil, which the Keystone XL pipeline reaches


Scarce Oil? U.S. Has 60 Times More Than Obama Claims

March 15, 2012

How long will Americans tolerate the myth???

Scarce oil, or Obama Accounting Defect

Why the lies? Another way to look at it, if you don’t accept the fact that government accounting was and is defective (and who wouldn’t) it is important to Obama’s failed green energy programs and how much the taxpayers will have to pay for the catastrophic failure … But never mind. The truth is far easier to understand than the obfuscation. We are awash in oil. It’s just in oil shale  and oil sands. Do you know what the Keystone XL is for? Turns out the pipeline is for delivering the Canadian oil sands oil to Gulf State refineries. And what is this weird “Canadian oil sands”?

Simple answer, the Canadians are already making use of their oil sands, and want the pipeline to get the oil to refineries.

Ever been out in western Colorado? I have, it’s a terrible, sticky mess. Ever walked around in the squishing oil? Yep it’s the same stuff they are ‘mining’  in Canada and now want a marketing outlets for the oil.

When he was running for the Oval Office four years ago amid $4-a-gallon gasoline prices, then-Sen. Barack Obama dismissed the idea of expanded oil production as a way to relieve the pain at the pump.

“Even if you opened up every square inch of our land and our coasts to drilling,” he said. “America still has only 3% of the world’s oil reserves.” Which meant, he said, that the U.S. couldn’t affect global oil prices.

It’s the same lying rhetoric President Obama is using now, as gas prices hit $4 again, except now he puts the figure at a mythical 2%.

“With only 2% of the world’s oil reserves, we can’t just drill our way to lower gas prices,” he said. “Not when we consume 20% of the world’s oil.”

The claim makes it appear as though the U.S. is an oil-barren nation, perpetually dependent on foreign oil and high prices unless we can cut our own use and develop alternative energy sources like algae.

When nothing could be a bigger lie — The U.S. Awash In Oil

Back to Obama and his lies — the figure Obama uses — proved oil reserves — vastly under counts how much oil the U.S. actually contains. In fact, far from being oil-poor, the country is awash in vast quantities — enough to meet all the country’s oil needs for hundreds of years.

As and aside from the oil discussion, hen it comes to coal, the lowest cost fuel, the USA has 30% of the world’s know reserve, according to the government EIA.

Right now, the U.S. has 22.3 billion barrels of proved reserves, a little less than 2% of the entire world’s proved reserves, according to the Energy Information Administration. But as the EIA explains, proved reserves “are a small subset of recoverable resources,” because they only count oil that companies are currently drilling for in existing fields.

When you look at the whole picture, it turns out that there are vast supplies of oil in the U.S., according to various government reports. Among them:

  • At least 86 billion barrels of oil in the Outer Continental Shelf yet to be discovered, according to the government’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management.
  • About 24 billion barrels in shale deposits in the lower 48 states, according to EIA.
  • Up to 2 billion barrels of oil in shale deposits in Alaska’s North Slope, says the U.S. Geological Survey.
  • Up to 12 billion barrels in ANWR, according to the USGS.
  • As much as 19 billion barrels in the Utah tar sands, according to the Bureau of Land Management.
  • Then, there’s the massive Green River Formation in Wyoming, which according to the USGS contains a stunning 1.4 trillion barrels of oil shale — a type of oil released from sedimentary rock after it’s heated.
  • The Bakken formation is still being explored, it’s expected to yield the U.S. Geological Survey says an estimated mean undiscovered volumes of 3.65 billion barrels of oil, 1.85 trillion cubic feet of associated/dissolved natural gas, and 148 million barrels of natural gas liquids in the Bakken Shale Formation of the Williston Basin Province, Montana and North Dakota.

So who knows, there is still the ability to easily do what the NAZIs did in WWII, that is convert coal to diesel fuel, just google “Coal to liquids”. And when you find Coal can be converted through proven, existing modern technology into clean, zero-sulfur synthetic oil and oil products at a cost of approximately $35 per barrel – compared to the current world price of about $107 per barrel for oil. You will understand.

Silly isn’t it, that America lets Democrats lie to them, while you pay $4 a gallon every day. All we need is the political will to force the issue.

As a participant of defeating the global warming hoax, I know a few tricks, which is for the most part, the truth and nothing but the truth.


Interior Will Not Ban Target Practice On Public Land

November 17, 2011

Backtracking … Obama anti gun agenda on the ropes. First it was “Fast and Furios”, you remember, the feds illegally running guns to mexican drug cartels to try and fire up the American people to give away more of their Second Amendment rights, and then their is the Interior department trying to ban recreational shooting from public lands.

Under fire from gun owners concerned about draft guidelines that could limit areas for target practice on western public lands, the Interior Department today said it would make sure shooters still have access to lands long available for firearms recreation.

“Our goal is to leave lands open to shooting,” said an Interior official for the Bureau of Land Management, which is drafting guidelines to deal with the growing clash between skittish urbanites moving to western wilderness areas and America’s tradition of letting gun owners shoot targets on public lands.[Read: Obama Pushing Shooters Off Public Lands.]

“We don’t want to have to close any areas,” said an official as BLM provided Washington Whispers with a statement clarifying the developing guidelines.

“We are in no way interested in banning recreational target shooting, hunting, or fishing—on the contrary, our goal is to develop guidance that will help land managers maximize and preserve opportunities for recreational shooting,” said the BLM statement.[Read about the subpoena issued as a result of Operation Fast and Furious.]

However, the official said it is possible that areas previously used for target practice that are too close to houses or areas of urban growth could be put off limits. The new plan would be to provide shooters with a map or guide on where they can go for target practice nearby, said the official.

“It’s the difference of driving two minutes [to shoot] or 15 minutes,” said the official.

Whispers reported on the controversy yesterday. A committee of conservationists and outdoors groups advising BLM has expressed outrage over the developing guidelines, charging that BLM is making it hard for shooters to practice on public lands, which has a long tradition in the West. The Interior official said that the committee’s concerns will be addressed in a “redraft” of the guidelines.

Think what would be going on if you had not stopped the Obama agenda in 2010.
