FACT CHECK : More US Drilling Didn't Drop Gas Price

Shocking revelation that oil companies, U.S. government would actually rip them off leaves Americans in stunned silence, disbelief

WASHINGTON (AP) --

It's the political cure-all for high gas prices: Drill here, drill now. But more U.S. drilling has not changed how deeply the gas pump drills into your wallet, math and history show.
 

Oil company execs can buy better dope, higher-grade prostitutes
A statistical analysis of 36 years of monthly, inflation-adjusted gasoline prices and U.S. domestic oil production by The Associated Press shows no statistical correlation between how much oil comes out of U.S. wells and the price at the pump.

If more domestic oil drilling worked as politicians say, you'd now be paying about $2 a gallon for gasoline. Instead, you're paying the highest prices ever for March.

Political rhetoric about the blame over gas prices and the power to change them — whether Republican claims now or Democrats' charges four years ago — is not supported by cold, hard figures. And that's especially true about oil drilling in the U.S. More oil production in the United States does not mean consistently lower prices at the pump.

Sometimes prices increase as American drilling ramps up. That's what has happened in the past three years. Since February 2009, U.S. oil production has increased 15 percent when seasonally adjusted. Prices in those three years went from $2.07 per gallon to $3.58. It was a case of drilling more and paying much more.




U.S. oil production is back to the same level it was in March 2003, when gas cost $2.10 per gallon when adjusted for inflation. But that's not what prices are now.

That's because oil is a global commodity and U.S. production has only a tiny influence on supply. Factors far beyond the control of a nation or a president dictate the price of gasoline.


When you put the inflation-adjusted price of gas on the same chart as U.S. oil production since 1976, the numbers sometimes go in the same direction, sometimes in opposite directions. If drilling for more oil meant lower prices, the lines on the chart would consistently go in opposite directions. A basic statistical measure of correlation found no link between the two, and outside statistical experts confirmed those calculations.

"Drill, baby, drill has nothing to do with it," said Judith Dwarkin, chief energy economist at ITG investment research. Two other energy economists said the same thing and experts in the field have been making that observation for decades.

The statistics directly contradict the title of GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich's 2008 book "Drill Here, Drill Now, Pay Less," as well as the campaign-trail claims from the GOP presidential candidates.


Oil company rapists burn off free gas in a glut to create shortage, and then charge Americans top-dollar for it

Earlier this month, GOP front-runner Mitt Romney said of his solution to higher gas prices: "I can cut through the baloney ... and just tell him, `Mr. President, open up drilling in the Gulf, open up drilling in ANWR (the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge). Open up drilling in continental shelf, drill in North Dakota, drill in Oklahoma and Texas.'"


This smirking idiot largely responsible for rip-off
On Wednesday, with President Barack Obama traveling to oil and gas production fields on federal lands, Crossroads GPS, a nonprofit arm of a super PAC supporting GOP candidates, released a new ad to air in the same states that Obama was visiting. It accused Obama of restricting oil development in America and concludes "bad energy policies mean energy prices we can't afford."

The late 1980s and 1990s show exactly how domestic drilling is not related to gas prices.

Seasonally adjusted U.S. oil production dropped steadily from February 1986 until three years ago. But starting in March 1986, inflation-adjusted gas prices fell below the $2-a-gallon mark and stayed there for most of the rest of the 1980s and 1990s. Production between 1986 and 1999 dropped by nearly one-third. If the drill-now theory were correct, prices should have soared. Instead they went down by nearly a dollar.

Obama to Fast-Track Part of Keystone XL Pipeline

Exactly the same propaganda used by Alaska senator and former banker Frank (Duh) Murkowski, bumbling thief and his moronic, illiterate commie sidekick congressman Don Young who both claimed that opening ANWR (Arctic National Wildlife Refuge) would magically create "100,000 jobs, good jobs, Alaskan jobs" and "decrease U.S. dependence on foreign oil" while arranging to sell AK oil overseas and then took Alaskans for a ride along with the rest of U.S. taxpayers

The Ticket
By Oliver Knox
03/20/2012

Under fire over sky-high gas prices, President Barack Obama embarks Wednesday on a two-day trip to defend his energy policy from a Republican onslaught linking his policies to Americans feeling pain at the pump. He will announce plans to fast-track the permit process for the southern portion of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, according to CNN .
 

Environmental/taxpayer rapist Obama all about money
The White House announced last week that Obama would use a stop in Cushing, Okla., on Thursday to highlight his support for the southern portion of the pipeline after he blocked the overall project amid anger from environmentalists. Republicans have used the issue to bludgeon Obama's energy policy, blaming him for the high cost of filling up at the pump.

Now CNN reports, citing "a source familiar with the president's announcement," that Obama will announce in Cushing that his administration will put the southern section of Keystone on the fast-track to approval. "The permit process for a project like this can typically take a year or more. The source familiar with the president's announcement says the administration could shave several months off that timeline," says the network.

Administration officials declined to confirm the report, though one senior Obama aide told reporters to expect that the president will make some news on the trip.

 If confirmed, the decision would seem likely to anger environmentalists—and do little to quiet Republican criticisms—and is unlikely to lead to an immediate fall in gas prices. But it could reinforce the White House's argument that Obama supports an "all of the above" energy policy, including the exploitation of domestic oil and natural gas deposits.


Boehner (pronounced BONE-er) thinks Obama is hilarious
Republicans immediately mocked the plan, with a spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner, Brendan Buck, comparing it to "a governor personally issuing a fishing license."

'There is only a minor, routine permit needed for this leg of the project. Only a desperate administration would inject the President of the United States into this trivial matter. The President's attempt to take credit for a pipeline he blocked and personally lobbied Congress against is staggering in its disingenuousness. This portion of the pipeline is being built in spite of the President, not because of him," Buck said in a statement.

The White House has shot back at Republicans that domestic oil production is at an all-time high while Obama mocks his critics as having simplistic solutions to the complex problem of high gas prices. And the president himself has embraced the language congressional Republicans use to describe their approach, saying he favors an "all of the above" energy strategy.

But a recent Quinnipiac University public opinion poll found 73 percent of respondents had heard of the Keystone project and 64 percent said they favored giving the pipeline the green light. Other polls taken in 2012 have found roughly half of respondents say they think that presidents have tools at their disposal to bring down gas prices.

Obama's Wednesday-Thursday trip will take him to Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Ohio (all except Oklahoma are up for grabs in the presidential election).

The president will "highlight his administration's all of the above energy strategy, including his focus on continuing to expand responsible oil and gas development, increasing the fuel economy of the vehicles we drive which will save families money at the pump, supporting renewable energy sources, and investing in infrastructure and research and development, all of which play a central role in increasing our nation's energy security," the White House said in a statement last week.

On Wednesday, Obama will visit a solar power plant in Boulder City, Nev., and then later will travel to oil and gas production fields on federal lands outside Carlsbad, N.M. On Thursday, he will visit the pipeline site, and then take a look at energy-related research facilities at Ohio State University in Columbus.

Mysterious ‘Zombie’ Disease Is Afflicting Thousands Of Ugandan Children

Gee, what a coincidence

Business Insider
03/21/2012

Agnes Apio has to tie up her son Francis before she can leave the house. In his state, he is a danger to himself. Where once he walked and talked like a normal child, now he is only able to drag himself along in the dirt. Francis is suffering from “Nodding Disease,” a brain disorder that, according to CNN, afflicts at least 3,000 children in northern Uganda, leaving them physically stunted and severely mentally disabled.


As always, children are the first to suffer medical experiments
“I feel dark in my heart,” Apio says as waves flies away from her son’s face and mops up his urine after a seizure, “This boy has become nothing.”

“Reportedly the children gnaw at their fabric restraints, like a rabid animals,” says The Daily Tech. The article calls them “zombie children,” having “no cure” and “no future.”

First the victims become restless, can’t concentrate. They say they have trouble thinking. Then comes the nodding, an uncontrollable dipping of the head that presages a the disease’s debilitating epilepsy-like seizures. It is this nodding motion that gives the illness its name.

Nodding Disease first attacks the nervous system, then the brain. As the epilepsy-like seizures progress and worsen, the children become less and less like themselves, and more and more distant and blank. Eventually the brain stops developing and the victims’ bodies stop growing. So far, no patients have recovered.

Grace Lagat also has to tie up her children in order to leave the house. Daughter Pauline, 13, and son Thomas are bound hand and foot to keep them from shuffling away and getting lost. Pauline recently disappeared for five days.

Experts are baffled as to what causes the disease, which only occurs in children. Early findings suggest a confluence of the presence of the black fly-borne parasitic worm Onchocerca Volvulus, which causes river blindness, and acute vitamin B6 deficiency.


This looks like massive nerve damage, and "coincidentally" the CDC has been "experimenting" with the weaponization of Rabies, recombining it with H5N1 most likely from Kobe University Japan and weaponized by Yoshihiro Kawaoka and his PhD student Teridah Ernala Ginting

According to the Centers for Disease Control, onset usually takes place at the age of five or six and progresses rapidly, leaving the victims severely mentally and physically handicapped within a couple of years.

Victims can wander off and disappear. Some 200 “secondary deaths” have been blamed on fires and accidents caused by children with the disease.

Physicians and workers with the Ugandan Red Cross are frustrated by what they see as a lack of urgency in the government’s handling of the disease. After months of lagging, officials have only begun an official tally of cases within the last two weeks.

The situation was already dire when a team from the World Health Organization visited northern Uganda in 2009. CNN quotes one doctor from the team, Dr. Joaquin Saweka as saying, “It was quite desperate, I can tell you. Imagine being surrounded by 26 children and 12 of them showing signs of this. The attitude was to quickly find a solution to the problem.”

Solutions, however, have been slow in coming.

Doctors have been treating the seizures caused by the disease with epilepsy drugs, but their efficacy is limited. The drugs only slow the progression of the disease, but fail to stop it.

Currently, Ugandan government officials say that they are doing everything they can to fight the epidemic. They say that new epilepsy drugs are being tried and special training has been instituted for local health officials. This, they say, is as much as can be done for a disease whose cause and cure are largely unknown.

Saweka said, “When you know the root cause, you address the cure. Now you are just relieving the symptoms. We don’t expect to cure anybody.”

Anti-Regime Protests Continue in Bahrain Despite Crackdown : Saudi Apostate Mercenaries Continue to Torture, Kill Bahrain Democracy Protesters

By attempting to emulate murdering U.S. masters bloated, rotting, infidel, killer Saudi regime will soon realize they are not Bush/Cheney/Obama; Saudi "royals" headed for trashcan of history; Saudi pigs can kiss goodbye "temporary marriages" to blonde, Western prostitutes, ripping off Americans at gas pump

PRESS TV
03/21/2012

Fresh clashes have erupted between the Saudi-backed Bahraini regime forces and anti-government protesters in the Persian Gulf country as the popular uprising continues in the Arab state, Press TV reports.


Apostate Saudi troops have killed hundreds of innocents in Bahrain
 The fighting began after Saudi-backed forces attacked a Wednesday protest rally on the third and final day of funeral processions for a man killed by the regime forces some days ago.

The incident happened in several towns and villages outside the capital, Manama, where the demonstrators shouted anti-regime slogans, demanding the downfall of the Al Khalifa rule.

The clashes came as King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa claimed on Tuesday the "doors to dialogue were, and remain, open."


Obama, CIA have sealed the fate of Saudi "royals," plan to attack, occupy Saudi Arabia after starting WWIII; Saudis picked wrong country to ally with, will be destroyed by their own people and feel sting of being occupied, raped for oil by U.S.

The Bahraini monarch also claimed the government has made "significant progress" in implementing reforms in the sectors of "security, judiciary, social policy and media" since February 2011.

Scores of people have lost their lives, many of them under torture in prison, during a popular uprising that began February last year.

Thousands more have been arrested. The protesters want justice and the ouster of the Al Khalifah regime.

U.S.- IRAN : From War Of Nerves To Full-Scale War?

It is the responsibility and is incumbent upon the Free Peoples of Israel, America and Iran to stop madmen Netanyahu, Obama and Ahmadinejad from starting WWIII to serve their own interests

Voice of Russia
By Boris Volkhonsky
03/21/2012

Apparently U.S. authorities want to create an assumption that a war with Iran is inevitable, and the only remaining questions are, who is to launch the first strike, and when will it happen?

The U.S. sticks to the scenario under which it will be Israel who initiates the war. In that case, it will give the U.S. a plausible excuse for being involved with the sole purpose to defend its core ally.

For the U.S., whose aim is obvious – that is the change of regime in Iran - the stalemate cannot last too long. Therefore, in the coming weeks and months we will probably see an escalation of war games, which by now have been games of muscles and nerves only, but have a potential of turning into a full-scale war.


As reported by The Los Angeles Times, the U.S. Navy is upgrading its defensive and offensive capabilities in the Persian Gulf to counter threats from Iran to seize the Strait of Hormuz and block the flow of oil.


Admiral Jonathan W. Greenert told reporters that the Navy will add four more mine-sweeping ships and four more CH-53 Sea Stallion helicopters with mine-detection capability. The Navy is also sending more underwater unmanned mine-neutralization units to the region.

On the other hand, according to reports, the Iranians have boasted that they could “swarm” large U.S. ships with their smaller, fast-moving craft. They have also reportedly been laying mines along their coastline.

In January, the chief of the Iranian army warned the U.S. not to send another ship to the Persian Gulf after the aircraft carrier John C. Stennis departed. Another carrier, the Abraham Lincoln, entered the gulf weeks later without incident.

Almost simultaneously, U.S. President Barack Obama issued an executive order titled “National Defense Resources Preparedness.” The executive order, published on the official White House website, “delegates authorities and addresses national defense resource policies” “in times of national emergency.” Several media have already labeled the document as an attempt to impose a state of emergency in peacetime. In any case, this is definitely a new indication of the U.S. readiness for any course of development in the most volatile region of the world.
 

Obama leaves little doubt as to who he believes should rule the "New America," when he and his fellow criminals in congress emerge from underground to claim domination over the world

And, as if to further strengthen the impression, the New York Times reported on Monday that “a classified war simulation held this month to assess the repercussions of an Israeli attack on Iran forecasts that the strike would lead to a wider regional war, which could draw in the United States and leave hundreds of Americans dead.”

Although U.S. officials said the so-called war games were not designed as a rehearsal for American military action, they have raised fears among top American planners that it may be impossible to preclude American involvement in any escalating confrontation with Iran.

So, apparently U.S. authorities want to create an assumption that a war with Iran is inevitable, and the only remaining questions are, who is to launch the first strike, and when will it happen?

In fact, both sides (or, all three, if we think of Israel as an independent side) are acting in order to give the other one a chance to launch the first blow. Definitely, starting a war does not seem to be in Iran’s interest, since it will further increase the international isolation the country has found itself in, and if Iran emerges as the initiator, it might mean that it will lose what remains of at least some support it has now. And total isolation would only mean a collapse of Iran’s already strained economy – possessing oil is a good thing, but you can never feed your subjects with oil.


Americans can count on more if this... a LOT MORE

Also, for the U.S. it does not seem to be in its national interest (at least, obviously not in the partisan interests of the Democrats and President Obama) to appear as the initiator. Much has been said about the Iranian nuclear program, but so far no consistent evidence that the program pursues any other ends apart from peaceful ones has been presented. And the memories of similar insinuations concerning the alleged weapon program in Iraq under Saddam Hussein are still fresh. As everyone remembers, alleged weapons of mass destruction served as an excuse for the U.S. to launch a war in 2003, but no such weapons have been found.




This probably explains why the U.S. sticks to the scenario under which it will be Israel who initiates the war. In that case, it will give the U.S. a plausible excuse for being involved with the sole purpose to defend its core ally.

But again, a war in the pre-election period would hardly improve the incumbent president’s standing. Hence, the U.S. is trying to lay off the bottom line till better times.

The only casus belli that could be easily fed to the U.S. public is an Iranian strike. But that needs a lot of effort to force Iran into coercive action. As has been shown constantly, Iran is quite satisfied with the present state of “neither war nor peace” which enables it to keep at least some national unity at home and not to subject itself to extensively strict sanctions.

But for the U.S., whose aim is obvious – that is the change of regime in Iran - the stalemate cannot last too long. Therefore, in the coming weeks and months we will probably see an escalation of war games, which by now have been games of muscles and nerves only, but have a potential of turning into a full-scale war.

French Terror Attack : All the Hallmarks of an Intelligence Psy-op and False Flag

This smells of a CIA/Mossad OP to take heat off Obama, incite Israeli public to war; Any government agency that kills children and commits these Satanic crimes deserves to be overthrown, it's scumbag criminal agents executed publicly along with all involved

Mohammed Merah, the suspect in the killing of seven people outside a Jewish school in Toulouse, France, fits the pattern of an al-Qaeda intelligence asset. According to the BBC, he was on the radar of French authorities because of visits he made to Afghanistan and the "militant stronghold" of Waziristan in Pakistan.


Crime scene at Jewish school:  Sarkozy should ban CIA in France
More specifically, Merah was handled by France's DCRI intelligence service "for years," according to Claude Gueant, the interior minister.

Merah, a French citizen of Algerian origin, was arrested on December 19, 2007, and was sentenced to three years in jail for planting bombs in the southern province of Kandahar in Afghanistan.
In April of 2011, the United States admitted it has operated secret military prisons in Afghanistan where suspected terrorists are held and interrogated without charges.

The notorious Bagram airbase detention center is operated by the Joint Special Operations Command and the DIA's Defense Counterintelligence and Human Intelligence Center (DCHC).

The DCHC "will be responsible for developing an 'offensive counterintelligence operations'... capability for the Department of Defense, which may entail efforts to penetrate, deceive and disable foreign intelligence activities directed against U.S. forces," Secrecy News reported in 2008 after the government announced the creation of DCHC.

The Pentagon and the CIA specialize in creating terrorists as part of a so-called covert and unconventional war doctrine dating back to the end of the Second World War (see Michael McClintock's Instruments of Statecraft: U.S. Guerilla Warfare, Counterinsurgency, and Counterterrorism, 1940-1990 for an in-depth examination).

Although virtually ignored by the corporate media, it is an established fact that the CIA and Pakistani intelligence created what is now known as al-Qaeda out of the remnants of the Afghan mujahideen following the CIA's covert three billion dollar war against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan.

It was the so-called Safari Club - organized under the CIA and with the participation of intelligence agencies in France, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Morocco and (under the Shah) Iran - that ramped up the largely contrived threat of international terrorism prior to and during the CIA's manufactured war in Afghanistan (see Peter Dale Scott, Launching the U.S. Terror War: the CIA, 9/11, Afghanistan, and Central Asia).

Intelligence agencies have specialized in the covert - and not so covert - creation of terrorists which are then used to provide a cynical raison d'ĂȘtre for launching military intervention around the world and also providing a pretext to build and expand a domestic surveillance police state.


Martial Law on the way:  All cops need to be stripped of their automatic weapons and other toys, given back billy-clubs and made to earn their money - this does not mean supporting criminal corporate interests and the tyrant dictator in the White House - and cease their own war on the poor, helping instead of hurting as they so proudly say or they will meet a bad end at hands of those they have oppressed

A textbook example of this process is the Christmas Day, 2009, underwear bomber fiasco - subsequently exposed as a false flag event - that was exploited to push for installing dangerous radiation-emitting naked body porno scanners at U.S. airports.

The fact Mohammed Merah was in the custody of the Joint Special Operations Command in Afghanistan - and his supposed jail break at the Sarposa Prison was reportedly orchestrated by the Taliban (also cretaed by the CIA and Pakistan's ISI) - certainly raises questions about the attack in France, where a national election will soon be held.

The Telegraph
reports that the attacks of the supposedly al-Qaeda connected Merah will play into the election bid of National Front candidate Marine Le Pen, who is unlikely to ever become the president of France.
It has, however, provided Nicolas Sarkozy with a pretext to put the southern part of the nation on high alert and cancel the campaigns of presidential contenders. Sarkozy stands to benefit from the terror attacks and play the role of a strong leader during a national crisis.

In the short term it is likely that President Nicolas Sarkozy will benefit. Very quickly he took charge. He rushed to the scene. He suspended his campaign. He spoke as the president of the republic," writes Gavin Hewitt for the BBC.
