GASOLINE PRICES – OBSERVE OBAMA’S EPA ACTIONS!

Make up your mind and fast. Did you know this? Did you really want to know this? Or do you really care?

My friend Ron, has provided me with some new material to further expose our current government’s mandates to force us to pay more for gasoline and provide more tax money to waste on government funded boondoggles.

Someday we will hopefully again allow entrepreneurs like Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and thousands of other Americans be free of government strangulation. These are the people who developed products and services without government money, regulations and interference to establish America’s technology leadership. Obama has meddled in private business so intensively, that we are soon going to be dependent on someone else to refine oil and produce plastic products when the EPA bans all petrochemical products. They have the noose around the coal industry in place now.

This Administration has, as it’s publicly stated objective, the conversion of this country from carbon based energy and products to any other form of alternative energy, be it wind, solar or metaphysical!! 

The problem is that this country is being held hostage by our own government to transfer our wealth to the Sheiks (OPEC) and despots of the world (Chavez of Venezuela), who control the price and production of crude oil. 

My previous articles have documented where this country has hundreds of years of energy within its grasp, in the form of coal, natural gas, oil shale and off shore deposits of oil and those on currently reachable on federally controlled land. If our current government would authorize unlimited exploration and production of crude oil, we would be exporting enough petroleum products to erase the national debt. Unlimited exploration and production of oil would create enough jobs to wipe out all unemployment by the end of this year.  

If, the Obama Administration took the shackles off of our entrepreneurs, the US could again become the leader and a significant competitor in the world petroleum market and thereby reduce the cost of energy to US citizens.  BUT, that is not in conformance with the Liberal, Progressive, Socialist agenda of the Obama administration.

The news media will not be truthful with the American people and expose the Obama administrations race to stop all petrochemical and refining operations in the US. Coupled with stopping the use of coal to produce electricity, Obama has single handily destroyed millions of jobs in the name of the unions and tree huggers. He is killing millions of union jobs and using the poor union member’s money to put them out of work. It is sad that the unions have provided the funding to force industry after industry to move elsewhere to make what we buy more expensive.

 

LOOK AT THE FACTS

In 2010, there were 149 operable U.S. refineries with a combined capacity of 17.6 million barrels per day. We have not built a new refinery in over 30 years. In late 2010, early 2011 the Obama steamroller took over. 

The US oil refinery industry, without exposure from Obama or the media, announced the closure of numerous US oil refineries. Did you know that we now ship oil to other countries to be refined?

We do so, as we do not have enough refineries to process the vast amounts here and we are barred from building anymore refineries. All refineries perform three basic steps: separation, conversion, and treatment. Simple technology today that was invented by us, but regulated away to save west Texas sand lizards and the leeches demonstrating in our cities.

There are several reasons including technical and economic factors forcing companies to ship it overseas to be processed such as;

1. The crude petroleum is sold to the highest bidder, NOT the nearest bidder.  Think China! 

2. There are different kinds of crude oil, such as sweet/light and dark/heavy. They have different applications and uses. 

3. Different kinds of refining processes are needed to make different products from the crude oil. Petroleum is processed to make lots of products other than gasoline, like plastics and asphalt. 

4. Politics, unions and the “environmentalists” 

Are you are aware Sunoco, Conoco-Phillips and The HESS Corp are all closing US oil refineries? Not many people are as the media refuses to give this HUGE story coverage. If Americans understood the complete truth to how we are being sold out and enslaved, there just might be the much needed political revolution to turn this country around. 

Late last year, both Sunoco & Conoco-Phillips announced plant closings, effecting thousands of workers. Sunoco announced they are completely getting out of the oil industry; closing up shop. They are fed up with the US regulations.

Sunoco is closing its two oil refineries in July 2012 in Philadelphia and Marcus Hook, Pa. Those 2 facilities alone process over 500,000 barrels of crude every day.

http://abclocal.go.com/wpvi/story?section=news/local&id=8343372 

Also last year, Conoco-Phillips announced two plant closings for sure in Trainer, PA and Bayway, NJ; the other three plants are undecided as of today. 

http://stillwaterassociates.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=139:us-east-coast-refinery-for-sale-whos-buying&catid=40:white-papers&Itemid=155 

Conoco also announced they were closing their Alaskan refining facility.  

http://www.delcotimes.com/articles/2011/09/28/news/doc4e828f2ba723a246763254.txt 

Just a week ago, the US 3rd largest oil refinery owned and operated by The HESS Corp just announced its permanent closure. Costing over 2,000 jobs, and affecting 950 contractors: 

http://www.tucsonnewsnow.com/story/16543753/major-oil-refinery-to-close-in-us-virgin-islands 

Refineries on the East Coast of the US supply 40% of the gasoline sales and 60% of the diesel and other fuel oils.  Of that, HALF of that comes from the Sunoco & Conoco-Phillips plant about to be closed.

When Conoco-Phillips announced that it was closing the Trainer refinery, Willie Chiang, then Conoco-Phillips’ Senior Vice President of Refining, Marketing, Transportation and Commercial noted that their decision to sell, like Sunoco’s, was based on unfavorable economics caused by a competitive and difficult market environment characterized by “…product imports, weakness in motor fuel demand, and costly regulatory requirements.”

They are ALL closing up shop due to federal government regulations, union demands and excessive operating costs resulting from myriad of the new regulations.

Then you have the unions, led by a President Obama supporter, Leo Gerard, saying they will close ALL US oil refineries starting today, from east coast to west coast.  

http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/09/23/usa-oil-refinery-labor-idUSS1E78M0T620110923 

The unions are shutting down ports, rail and air across the pond right now……the SAME EXACT thing they plan on doing here. When the ships stop importing, the rails and air stop delivering….how much is everything you consume going to increase in cost? Remember…we are a CONSUMING country, no longer a producing one.

http://www.hellenicshippingnews.com/News.aspx?ElementId=37873cee-2b75-4aa0-86ac-5336e56a4c04 

The excessive and costly government regulations on the US oil refinery market have forced companies to re-evaluate the cost of doing business in the US.  As a producer, why have operations in the US, where you bleed money via regulations and demands, when you can have refineries built in Columbia, Mexico or Brazil for pennies on the dollar, and less regulations?  It’s all business folks …nothing personal.  In addition Obama and his miserable Congressional Democrats are giving BILLIONS to Columbia and Brazil to build refineries to process all that oil the US is losing.  We are transferring wealth to every country on earth, while destroying our own….all in the name of Obama’s socialist dreams.

https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003192895784&sk=notes#!/note.php?note_id=145148522268243 

When the US oil refineries finally close up shop, who will process all of that oil….and how much do YOU think that gasoline will cost when it’s ALL processed overseas? If you think that gas and energy costs are high right now…….wait 6 months. You haven’t seen anything yet. 

How can any company do business with an anti-American, hostile government which is totally out of control? We sit back and watch the mass exodus of industry after industry, LEAVING the US. Are you going to vote for more of this under a Democrat or is it time for a change to sanity and prosperity? We could export people who refuse to work! Better yet we could export Congress and the Supreme Court who are wrecking our freedom!   

Thanks Ron for your thoughts and facts…..C Brewer

OBAMA IS DESTROYING THE AMERICAN DREAM

When I thought there was nothing else he could do to wreck our country, he now is blatantly violating the Constitution.

Up to now he has just ignored our laws on illegal aliens, intimidating voters rights, massacred the rights of GM and Chrysler bond holders, created 26 years old as the beginning of adulthood, destroyed the petroleum industry, forced people to buy insurance, opened the White House to every progressive with money, the unions and tree huggers. He has just about destroyed the economy by spending us into bankruptcy with promises of prosperity for everyone.

He must be the most envied person on earth by every con man alive or dead with the charade he has accomplished in just 3 years. No wonder the main stream media blindly worships his every act of destruction; they fear his power and can watch him destroy the free press competition. Even Fox News has realigned its programming to ease up the reporting of his destruction of our freedoms.

He has assumed near complete control of our government by thumbing his nose at Congress and they just sit there and do nothing. He has reshaped the judicial with radical progressive appointments to the Supreme Court. If he gets to make one more appointment to the court, he will have total control of all US government for the first time in modern history. If he can gain total control of the military, he will be the first Dictator of the United States. He has gained all of this power without the use of military. That would make Hitler, Chavez, Stalin and Mao blush with envy.

All he had to do was divide this country using class warfare, perceived racial bias and socialistic promises of sharing all wealth equally.

If his power is not slowed down and he is re-elected, he will be President for life or our first Dictator. He has the unions 100%; the environmentalist 100%, the dead 100%, Academia 100%, and his Mickey Mouse and other cartoon friends are alive in all 50 states. He fights every attempt to make people show positive identification to vote and supports voter intimidation at the polling places to scare old people to stay away from the polls. He has generated more hatred in America than George Wallace and the Klu Klux Klan.

He preaches that we need more jobs and ignores the creation of 20,000 new jobs instantly by granting authority for one pipeline that will ease the need to buy oil from our enemies. He knows that he will upset either the tree huggers or the unions regardless of his decision, but he knows that he will not lose one vote. These mindless, socialist robots would not vote for a republican if God ran for President. His hatred for the oil industry and compassion for his Muslim world are the only logical reasons for his denying the pipeline project.

All of you young people that put this egomaniac in power will live to pay for his folly. Get your heads out of your posterior and wake up. You’ve been had and you will have no one to blame but yourselves. Socialism has never been successful in improving anything.

“USEFUL and USELESS IDIOTS”

I just received a new term from my friend Dr. Forrest and I wish to share this analogy with all of my conservative friends. To anyone else I sincerely hope you are not one of these poor souls? Probably not or you would not be reading this blog.

A “useful idiot”  was a term invented in the old Soviet Union to describe people who “blindly” supported those like Lenin and Stalin who committed atrocity after atrocity on their own people. As the American idiots we watch on TV have yet to commit atrocities I decided to invent a new term to describe them as “useless idiots”.

To me they are brainwashed liberals and leftists in search of making sure all they have to do is demonstrate. They demand that the useful working people can pay for everything so they can be useless and contribute nothing . It appears that this movement is stimulated by college students that aren’t necessarily idiots, but just misinformed, naive, and ignorant of facts due to being indoctrinated with liberal/socialist propaganda through our current education systems, media bias and a radical Presidents policies. They have been brain washed into believing that George W. Bush has committed more crimes against humanity than leftist darlings like Stalin, Mao, Yasser Arafat, and Saddam Hussian. They defend and plea for Communism to rule the United States. Communism has caused  over 100 million deaths in my lifetime.

See also, idiotarian

Today we sit by and watch these “useless idiots” gather at their college campus and the streets of New York to burn American flags, pass out Communist pamphlets that apologize for Stalin and Mao, and to pledge support to Chavez, Castro and the others. We watch our own Justice Department ignore those who seek to destroy America. It is sad to see this wonderful country being destroyed by a President who stimulates their anger with fear every day.  

“Useless idiots” need to be shown the facts, mainly that the United States and Israel are the greatest defenders of freedom and justice in the world. These misguided, irrational people can be salvaged if enough conservatives stand together and defend our constitution from further attack.

If the majority of people continue to support the destruction of our Republic and demand a Socialist democracy our days of freedom and our success driven free enterprise lives will be over.

GASOLINE PRICE INCREASES-WHY?

 

 Regardless of how President Obama and his “Progressive” democrats, tree hugging lunatics, GE, Bill O’Reilly and the main stream media misinform you, the major oil companies have never been the reason for increased prices of gasoline. For purposes to identify this misguided group I will refer to them as “Obama’s Weirdo’s”. 

Price controls that this group always threatens to use, will not have any effect to lower what you pay for gasoline. If anything, it could cause the price to go higher.

To explain all of the reasons affecting the price of crude oil would end up being a book. OPEC alone could have a million reasons that would cause wild increases. With lunatics like Chavez, Qaddafi and Ahmadinejad impacting prices, they can shut down production if they wake up with a toothache. In my opinion the manipulators like George Soros and the arbiters who speculate in the futures market are the primary reason for most increases we had seen over time. These are the same people who make sure “Obama’s Weirdo’s” are funded to keep you excited. If you have time to read the millions of pages of events over the past forty years you would agree. Prove me wrong with facts, if you have the time, and I will apologize.  

The tree huggers would outlaw all gasoline using products and use oil to make plastic toilet paper. We would revert back to the horse and buggy for transportation. Airplanes and trains would be eliminated. Can you imagine the piles of horse crap that would pile up on a transcontinental trip?

Progressives have been screaming for 40 years for raising gas prices like they have had in Europe. They want the extra money to spread the wealth with welfare. Recently they are pushing for a Value Added Tax (VAT) like Europe, again to have more money to redistribute the wealth. Every idea they come up with punishes the people they have brain washed with money to not work, the poor.

Only one person on earth can stop the recurring oil price madness. Who can stop it in 24 hours, the President of the United States of America? Bush did it. Will Obama use this power, no he just keep blaming anyone he can. He stood up in front of America last Friday and lied to the people is why I make this statement. He told the American people that American oil reserves are not adequate to reduce our dependence on foreign oil. He stated that we have only two percent of the world’s oil reserves. Both of these statements are outright lies.  He stated that domestic oil production in 2010 was at its highest point in seven years which is misleading. Ten years ago our oil production was ten percent more than in 2010. In 1970 it was double what was produced in 2010. It has steadily decreased over the past forty years because drilling has been regulated and controlled by the “Weirdo’s” under most Presidents since Carter.

In 2009 the non partisan Congressional Research Service (SRS) reported that the U.S. supply of recoverable oil to be 167 billion barrels. This would allow us to have more than 75 years of not buying any oil from foreign sources like OPEC. That does not include the natural gas and coal reserves. SRS reported that when you add these other two resources we have the equivalent of 1.3 trillion barrels of oil.

In addition the U.S. Geological Survey announced that the Arctic areas of Alaska and offshore has about 90 billion barrels of oil. That alone is more than Nigeria, Kazakhstan, and Mexico combined.

If you seek the truth, ever since Obama was elected, there has been a constant pressure to impede more drilling. His success has been to make Americans more dependent on foreign oil and share more of our wealth with OPEC lunatics.

I have visited the Middle East and North Africa in my travels, working in the petroleum industry. Let me warn you about another asset they have a world class quantity of readily available. Should science ever find a way that will demand buying sand for America to survive, we are in real trouble. I can visualize it now, it will be known as the Organization of Sand Exporting Countries, OSEC.

Obama can force the price of oil to drop tomorrow with one simple announcement, “All regulations and barriers on domestic oil drilling have been eliminated effective today”.

For Tadpole and the rest of American’s who care, it’s your time, stand up and demand that the President and Congress act or just get out of the way.

      I spent 15 years traveling the world in the petroleum inductry. Chaired ANSI/ASME committee on offshore safety valves for a few years. I am nearing 81 and I read at least four hours a day on topics in the news. I do not watch the so called main stream media even give the weather as they can’t even do the weathers without an Al Gore/Michael Moore slant. I love this country and hope it stays togrether for my grandkids. C Brewer

UNION DISASTERS

 

 Before the Wisconsin debacle that has dominated the recent news, my interest and knowledge about “Unions” was limited to the private business sector. I am fully aware that “Unions” have created the loss of manufacturing jobs that plague the country and why we have to import most of the consumer product we buy today. When you couple “Union” pressured trade barriers with the regulatory pressure of the “Tree huggers”, we have made conducting business in America nearly impossible. I have created businesses in Canada and the United States and without a doubt the Canadian government is far more business friendly. They actually help you get started and survive.

The “Wisconsin Disaster” unveiled another “Union” situation that has been off the radar since Reagan fired the air traffic controllers a long time ago. Unionization of government employees is one of the dumbest things I have seen evolve in my 80 years as an American. Can you just imagine that as this practice expands, we could see the “Unionization” of Congress, the Judicial and Executive branches of American government?

 We have some union type demands already in place like the lifetime terms for Federal Judges and the Supreme Court (tenure). There are no measurements of performance and they can’t be terminated. Congress uses seniority (tenure) as the basis for power and committee appointments. Thank God they can be terminated as we witnessed last November.

 With Obama’s passion for European style Socialism, visualize the potential of “Unionizing” the Executive branch of government. The President and his army of czars could go on strike for better pay and fringe benefits. Who could stop them? What would happen if the Supreme Court decided to strike? If Congress went on strike and refused to function, who could stop them? I could drive you insane with the possibilities of what an uncontrolled government could do. If you wish to see what idiots who mesmerize the populace can do, read what Chavez has done in Venezuela. See how he used the unions to get elected and gain dictatorial powers. Why can’t this happen here? 

Before you accuse me of insanity, look at what is happening in the real world today. All democratic State Senators in Wisconsin left the State to avoid doing state business. The Governor has not been able to get them to return. The media legal eagles have stated that there is no law being broken and no one has the power to arrest them for anything.  

I would like to say that if a quorum of Congress were to do the same thing, it would be tragic. Unfortunately it could probably be an improvement over the idiotic regulations and Obamacare they raced to impose before the last election. Congress has allowed the Executive branch to run wild for over two years. If the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) alone is not abolished soon, we just think energy prices are high today. Locally the price for gasoline has jumped about 9% in the last week. Coupled with out of control spending, we are watching America destroyed from within. Our current government in action at all levels is like watching cartoons. 

I am now compiling data and facts of what “Unionization” of the teachers in Wisconsin has cost the citizens. The questionable legality of how they are provided insurance alone will amaze you. The teachers own the insurance company and collective bargaining is how they have screwed the taxpayer. Stay tuned for a series on public service unions nation-wide.
