Well it wasn’t even 2 weeks ago Obama was singing the tune of “we need to allow more of our companies to drill here in America” Now Obama is back to his original marching tune with NO MORE DRILLING, instead he wants to continue to import oil from countries such as Canada, Mexico, OPEC, Brazil and God knows where else. Yet proving once again time after time that he only agrees with the way the polls lean. The American Voter is getting fed up with this BS…

The Obama administration today said a proposal from House Natural Resources Chairman Doc Hastings (R-Wash.) to expedite oil and gas leasing and energy infrastructure permitting in an Alaska reserve could force federal regulators to flout environmental laws and includes a costly, redundant resource assessment.

Mike Pool, deputy director of the Bureau of Land Management, also announced the agency will hold lease sales in the National Petroleum Reserve, known as NPR-A, in December 2011 and each year after, making good on the administration’s mid-May promise to expedite development in the 23-million-acre reserve.


Monthly data on the origins of crude oil imports in March 2011 has been released and it shows that three countries exported more than 1,000 thousand barrels per day to the United States (see table below). The top five exporting countries accounted for 69 percent of United States crude oil imports in March while the top ten sources accounted for approximately 87 percent of all U.S. crude oil imports. The top five sources of US crude oil imports for March were Canada (2,151 thousand barrels per day), Mexico (1,186 thousand barrels per day), Saudi Arabia (1,107 thousand barrels per day), Venezuela (957 thousand barrels per day), and Nigeria (840 thousand barrels per day). The rest of the top ten sources, in order, were Iraq (382 thousand barrels per day), Colombia (363 thousand barrels per day), Russia (314 thousand barrels per day), Algeria (268 thousand barrels per day), and Angola (261 thousand barrels per day). Total crude oil imports averaged 9,033 thousand barrels per day in March, which is an increase of 1,020 thousand barrels per day from February 2011.

Canada remained the largest exporter of total petroleum in March, exporting 2,666 thousand barrels per day to the United States, which is a decrease from last month (2,831 thousand barrels per day). The second largest exporter of total petroleum was Mexico with 1,319 thousand barrels per day.

So as the Obama Campaign machine prepares to roar and mow over the Oil companies for supposedly high gas prices..Yes I said supposedly because while the gas prices are very high they will continue to get even higher. SO the White House aka the Obama Administration aka the Obama re-election campaign may want to be careful who they target. Because if it is not OPEC then they are to put it lightly PISSING in the wind, let’s look at exactly where and WHO we get our oil from?

Canadatotal oil exports to the U.S. exceeded 2.4 million barrels per day.

OPEC (Oil Producing Exporting Countries)

Algeria, Angola, Ecuador, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Venezuela

We pretty much import oil from just about every nation in the world the list of non OPEC countries can be found HERE.

So to point the finger at Domestic Oil Companies alone would be not only ludicrous but stupid as well this is one thing I agree with Donald Trump on, if one of these “non” Allied countries need help and they need some military support then instead of just going over there for FREE. They can pay us back in OIL. Also we are the customers and being a customer you have great power people just do not know it. If our leadership would stop bowing to these people and instead say hey! Look knock the shit off either sell us the oil at a reasonable rate or take your oil and shove it up you’re a**. That will get their damn attention. But also you have to take in consideration that if we stopped buying oil from the OPEC countries then the only alternative is to DRILL OUR OWN DAMN OIL.

People the problem is you cannot have your cake and eat it too, if you want lower gas prices then DRILL he you want to have “green way of living” then pay 6 bucks a gallon. The whole going green BS is a major factor in as well. You have these environmentalist crying about how we are destroying our environment. Then guess what LIVE with the 6bucks per gallon gas.

Canada most likely is driving the price of OIL up to offset it’s “universal” healthcare program, you know the health care system where everyone has equal coverage and the Govt. or the people pay very high taxes for it. The Canadian health care system is defined as a “single payer” system. This means that the government pays most of the healthcare expenses. Hence why the OIL is so high.

1: In 2008 Obama promised to bring the troops home with a 100 day plan, what happen to that plan?

2: his 2008 campaign he promised to have the deficit slashed in half by the end of his 1stterm, how come he has tripled it?

3: Obama said he was going to close Guantanamo bay? What happened?

4: Obama said he was going to restrict warrantless wiretaps. What happened their?

5: Obama said tougher rules against revolving door for lobbyists and former officials? How come this stalled?

Many of you guys who read this blog & interact with us on various topics are well aware of Live Video. I am going to give you some truths regarding this broadcasting platform that is breakable with even the simplest code.

1st off Live Video is used by people from all around the world, when you get someone who lives in communist China for ex: they believe in COMMUNISM and the suppression of free speech. Most the LV users never heard of free speech and if it was up to them they would have executed everyone who exercised that liberty.

LV users in the USA & Canada and other democracies understand “well most of them” what people like Ray of Jerk off Radio, Steven Bravo of STR and so forth was trying to do.

PEOPLE LOVE POWER it is human nature give someone the ability to suppress someone else’s opinions then they will.

People from Great Britain are still hurt over the fact that some backwards ass woodsman beat their ass in war lmfao.



2008 06 11 - 3240-3241 - Silver Spring - US29 ...

A man with an explosive device entered the Discovery Communications building in downtown Silver Spring Wednesday afternoon and has taken a security guard hostage, Montgomery County Police said.

Some employees were evacuated. Others told to go to the highest floor in the building. An email to Discovery employees had a subject line that read: “URGENT: Employees at One Discovery Place Proceed to a Locked Office IMMEDIATELY.”

Tactical and bomb squad officers are on the scene and are developing a plan to deal with the situation, said Montgomery County Police spokesman Cpl. Dan Fritz.

Friz said the suspect was an Asian male who has some issues with the Discovery Corporation. He did not elaborate.

“We’re working on getting everyone out of there,” he said on WUSA.

He said authorities “have an eye on the individual” and are keeping him under closer observation. But Fritz said they have not yet made contact with him.

Several businesses near the building also have been evacuated or are on lockdown.

In an interview, one employee who was evacuated said that they were told a gunman came into lobby, and grabbed a security guard as a hostage.

As police descended on Silver Spring, the downtown came to a halt as police cordoned off streets. The Discovery building, located in the heart of the downtown at the intersection of Colesville Road and Georgia Avenue, was at the heart of the city’s revitalization and employees hundreds.

A note posted on the Internet on July 18 issues a list of demands to the Discovery Channel, saying the station “MUST broadcast to the world their commitment to save the planet.” It lists 11 demands about airing shows that would promote curbing the plant’s population growth, finding solutions for global warming and dismantling “the dangerous US world economy.”

“All programs on Discovery Health-TLC must stop encouraging the birth of any more parasitic human infants and the false heroics behind those actions,” it reads. “In those programs’ places, programs encouraging human sterilization and infertility must be pushed. All former pro-birth programs must now push in the direction of stopping human birth, not encouraging it.”

The manifesto was published on on July 18. It is registered to James Lee who gave a post officce box in Canada as his address. There is no confirmation from authorities that the Web site has anything to do with the current situation at Discovery.
