Podcast – Children of ExxonMobil are Wracked with Guilt – Saudi Rehab Centers Recruit Jihadists – Czech Man Thinks he’s a Tiger

Two of descendants of John D. Rockefeller, the founder of Standard Oil, now ExxonMobil, are evidently guilty about their family legacy. So guilty are they over their dirty Big Oil legacy, that they are calling out the company, stating that ExxonMobil has downplayed the effect that oil drilling has had on Global Warming – because that’s what guilty rich liberals do.

Obama has been releasing terrorists from the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, so he might finally fulfill his promise to close the facility and further his radical legacy. Some of those released have been sent to a rehabilitation center in Saudi Arabia. However this rehab center appears to be a front for recruiting jihadists.

Don’t do drugs! If you do, you may begin to think you are a wild animal, like a young man in the Czech Republic, who was caught on video by a trail camera, completely naked. He thought he was a Tiger. read more

A Funny Thing Happened at the Pipeline Protest

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll down for audio version

If you are a regular reader, you will recognize the Dakota Access Pipeline which, when completed, will transport oil from the Bakken oil fields near Stanley, North Dakota to Pakota, Illinois.

The contractor, Precision Pipeline, says the pipeline will be capable of transporting between 450,000 and 570,000 barrels per day of domestic crude. Although not as highly publicized as the now defunct Keystone XL Pipeline project, the Dakota is still a major undertaking spanning four states and costing $3.8 billion.

You may read all about in an article I wrote July, entitled, “The Pipeline We Know Little About.”

As one would expect with projects such as this, there are bound to be protests. After all, it is big oil and who better to protest an easy target like that. read more

The Pipeline We Know Little About

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Remember the Keystone XL Pipeline project? Remember what a cause célèbre it was for both the left and right? What the heck ever happened to it? Have you wondered that?

Well, in short it was killed pretty much for good, or at least the foreseeable future – both here in the USSA and now in Canada. As you are no doubt aware, it was Obama who, with the left in the federal and various state legislatures – and with some help from Choo-choo Warren Buffet who owns most of the rail cars now hauling crude down south, vetoed the pipeline. And don’t forget all the gobs of leftist activist money thrown at killing the project.

You may also recall that Canada threatened to build their own pipeline to their west coast and ship the oil to Asia if the U.S. did not acquiesce. That was when the “conservatives” ran Canada. But with the election of lefty socialist (like there’s another kind) Justin Trudeau in Canada, the entire XL project, above and below the border, was pronounced dead.

And that was the end of any talk of long distance oil pipelines. Or is it?

There is another long distance oil pipeline which will span 1,172 miles – from North Dakota’s famous Bakken and Three Forks oil production zones all the way to Pakota, Illinois. read more

Podcast – Who Should Be On Our Money – Tribute to Prince – The Sierra Club Now Wants to Kill Gas and Oil

In this episode I give a stirring tribute to the artist known as Prince. The next segment centers on a discussion of just who should be on our paper money. The Donald and his surrogates believe we should leave it alone and that the change is just due to political correctness. I then give my thoughts on just who should adorn our dollar bills.

In the final segment I discuss a recent IBD article regarding the Sierra Club and their attack on our remaining energy sectors. You won’t believe what they admit to. read more

My WND Weekly Exclusive

Will ISIS Use Dirty Bomb to Blackmail?

Who doesn’t love the current price of a gallon of gas? I was driving in to my office recently and noticed more than one fuel station posting gas at $1.55 per gallon. When George W. Bush first took office in 2001, the average price of a gallon was $1.55.

Remember back in 2012, during a debate with Mitt Romney Obama said: “When I took office, the price of gasoline was $1.80, $1.86. Why is that? Because the economy was on the verge of collapse.” So what does it tell us about the present Obama economy that gas prices are now some 30 cents lower than 2009 and in free fall? Sure, it’s great for us consumers – we’re saving a fortune on gas and heating oil – but it’s not great for our nation or the world economy. read more

Obama’s Energy Pie In The Sky Is A Lie

by: the Common Constitutionalist

What Obama State of the Union show would be complete (complete disaster that is) without a diatribe on Climate Change and further ruination of the coal and oil industries with his call  to “accelerate the transition away from dirty energy.” However climate weenies lamented that, “there was no laundry list of bold programs and budding proposals this time.” That is a shame.

“It’s time to not only reform our fossil fuel leasing program, we need to keep fossil fuels in the ground,” said Erich Pica, president of Friends of the Earth, in a statement. Translation: the federal government must confiscate more and more land and place it off limits to any kind of exploration. Great idea! That will solve our energy needs moving forward.

“In fields from Iowa to Texas, wind power is now cheaper than dirtier, conventional power. On rooftops from Arizona to New York, solar is saving Americans tens of millions of dollars a year on their energy bills, and employs more Americans than coal…Meanwhile, we’ve cut our imports of foreign oil by nearly sixty percent, and cut carbon pollution more than any other country on Earth,” Obama exclaimed. read more

Can Israel become Energy Independent?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

It’s been reported recently that Israel has made the discovery of a lifetime. They’ve discovered a massive oil field in their Golan Heights territory.

Israel reportedly consumes about 270,000 barrels of oil per day, although other estimates put consumption far lower at around 190,000 barrels. That’s somewhere between 70 and 100 million per year. The Golan discovery is said to possibly be in the billions of barrels. This find alone could make Israel energy independent for decades.

This is the first potentially commercially viable oil source it’s ever had since its founding. Until this discovery, Israeli companies have drilled some 350 exploratory wells – not one has been viable.

To demonstrate just how significant this find may be – the average depth or thickness of layers of underground oil deposits is around 30-35 meters. This find is estimated to be 350 meters thick – 10 times the norm.

What is yet to be determined is whether the oil can be extracted at a reasonable enough price to be viable. And that’s a big if, considering how the price of oil worldwide has cratered in the past several months.

Naturally, as in America and the rest of the West, environmentalist wackos have involved themselves; doing everything they can to halt the progress of discovery.

We here in the States know all too well how the powerful environmental lobby can muck things up for the energy sector, but we have it relatively easy compared to Israel. We don’t have hostile nations on our border to content with – only our own hostile government. read more

Stop Oil Production – For the Children

by: the Common Constitutionalist

It’s a cinch, that if the left finds something offensive, they will try to find a way to stop it, or at the very least condemn it.

If it’s fun, it’s unsafe. If it’s tasty, it must cause cancer, obesity or restless leg syndrome. And if it has anything to do with the production or use of oil or any petroleum product, it will kill us all and destroy the planet. Therefore all these evil practices must be stopped. And how does one stop them? Develop studies through scientific research that determine just how evil these practices are, thereby scaring the public into demanding change. And who better to scare than pregnant mommies.

One case in point that “the Progressive Democrats of America” site is “an alarming study” by the University of Pittsburgh that fracturing causes low birth weight in newborns. One University researcher exclaimed that “these findings could not be ignored.” Of course they can’t, because fracking is inherently evil and therefore must be stopped.

After all, it’s already proven that fracking pollutes the ground water we drink. Oh that’s right – even the EPA had recently to admit that was a fabrication. But as luck would have it, the EPA admission was disclosed on the very same day that the Progressive Democrats reported on lower birth weights caused by fracking. What a coincidence that one scientific fact was debunked only to be replaced by another. read more

Iranian Nuclear Program Is a False Narrative

by: the Common Constitutionalist

One way the left is able to advance their agenda, whatever it may be that day, is to control the narrative and don’t allow anyone to stray from it.

Someone on the left decides what’s important, sets the table with approved talking points to be used as the benchmark or starting point, and then it’s the job of spokespeople and the media to assure that all others limit their discussion to those points.

We see this with global warming. The benchmark is that man caused warming is fact. You may haggle about anything beyond it, but you may not Iranian students form human chain around Uranium Conversion Facility in Isfahan, south of capital, Tehran.
change the start point. Israel oppresses the Palestinians. There is no benchmark except that. And now Christians discriminate against homosexuals. That is where you must begin.

There is evidently a created benchmark when discussing Iran’s nuclear program. The start point is that Iran must have nuclear power. That is the undisputed benchmark from where all discussion and negotiation must begin.

Yet no one, in my estimation, as even attempted to question that benchmark – so I will. read more

Pipeline Rupture Means No Keystone XL

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Last Saturday a section of oil pipeline ruptured in Montana releasing an estimated 50,000 gallons of oil. That’s equivalent tpipeline ruptureo about 1190 barrels.

The Bridger companies Poplar pipeline that runs through eastern Montana has been transporting oil from the Bakken shale formation since 2010.

Last weekend’s spill made headlines and the environmentalists are on the war path. The reports are that the spill in the Yellowstone River has caused an environmental disaster. Bottled water has been trucked in to surrounding communities due to “elevated volatile compounds” found in a sample taken at the Glendive Montana water treatment plant. read more
