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.


Donald Trump on Thursday dropped a barrage of F-bombs at a massive Las Vegas rally where he blasted the president repeatedly and slammed politicians as “blood suckers.”

“Our leaders are stupid, they are stupid people,” he said to the crowd of about 1,000 people at the reception at the Treasure Island casino along the Las Vegas Strip, sponsored by the Clark County GOP and three women groups. “It’s just very, very sad.”

On the nation’s involvement in military actions oversees, he said: “We build a school, we build a road, they blow up the school, we build another school, we build another road they blow them up, we build again, in the meantime we can’t get a f——ing school in Brooklyn.”

On how to deal with OPEC to lower oil prices?

“We have nobody in Washington that sits back and said, you’re not going to raise that f—-ing price,” Trump said, according to KTNV in Nevada.

And how he’d tell China he wants to slap a tariff on their exports?

“Listen you mother——ers we’re going to tax you 25 percent!”

He assured a woman in the crowd who urged him to run that he expected to make her “very happy,” but added later, “there is a really good chance that I won’t win because of one of these blood-sucking politicians.

“I’m not interested in protecting none of them unless they pay,” he added.

He also said the U.S. Supreme Court ought to rule on the spate of lawsuits against Obama’s health care reforms.

The cursing didn’t necessarily have populist resonance with everyone in the crowd.

“I think he needs to work on that a little bit,” local Republican David Gibbs told the local TV station.

And despite blasting reporters for querying him about a topic he’s raised repeatedly, he voluntarily took another victory lap over the president’s move to ask Hawaiian officials to release his long-form proof of birth.

Hillary Clinton tried to get him to do it, Bill Clinton tried to get him to do it, John McCain, who’s a wonderful guy, tried to get him to do it,” KTNV quoted him saying. “Nobody could get him to do it and he did it because we went after him hard, were tough negotiators like this country needs.”

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.

As I have said Trump is too far in to NOT run, some in the Republican Party seems for some reason Trump could not win against Obama, Listen Trumps message dis-regarding the birther issue but his stance on China and the OPEC nations. Why is it this is a bad thing? Listen these issues are major cause in our economical problem.

Jon Huntsman’s love letters to President Obama and former President Bill Clinton highlight just how “disloyal” Huntsman is to turn on his boss and run for president as a Republican, real estate mogul Donald Trump told The Daily Caller in an interview.

“It’s a tough situation he’s put himself in,” Trump said. “He worked for somebody and it seems awfully disloyal when you work for somebody and then run against them, especially in light of letters. It’s not as if he went out angry. He went out happy.”

As reported by TheDC, Huntsman told Obama in a handwritten letter from August 2009 he is a “remarkable leader,” underlying the word “remarkable,” adding that  ”it has been a great honor getting to know you.”

And in an earlier note to former Democratic President Bill Clinton, Huntsman admired Clinton’s “brilliant analysis of world events” and implausibly claimed Hillary Clinton has “even more charisma” than Bill, punctuating the thought with an exclamation point.

The issue has highlighted Huntsman’s political vulnerabilities heading into a GOP primary — namely, that he could be too moderate to appeal to GOP voters. Some political experts say the letters imperil Huntsman’s very candidacy.

Trump, who has rocketed to the top tier of potential Republican nominees by questioning Obama’s birthplace, offered another reason the letters will hurt Huntsman — by putting the spotlight on his record as the American ambassador in Beijing.

“China has been pillaging the United States for years and if you’re the ambassador to China well they’ve been pillaging the United States, that’s pretty tough,” said Trump.

The television star and maybe-candidate staked a hard line on foreign affairs when he headlined a Boca Raton, Fla., Tea Party rally this past weekend.

“If I run and win, our country will be respected again,” said Trump at the Rally.. “And China and OPEC and all of the many nation that are ripping off this great country of ours will be dealt with very, very differently.”

At the rally, Trump said he wanted business leaders negotiating with foreign countries because they were “vicious, ruthless, horrible human beings in person.”

“A diplomat is a person that studies hard,” said Trump before the crowd of thousands. “You know what they learn? How to be nice to be people. I don’t want nice people.”

Can you believe this? I can…Americans braving, flying bullets, kidnappings and murder by drug lords to get cheap gas? What have we become? Why is our leadership bowing to OPEC? All because they are too afraid to drill…WHAT A JOKE right? WRONG…

Braving extensive wait times and potential violence, Americans are casting aside all fear for the black gold on the other side.

At a time when filling up your gas tank in the States feels like highway robbery, Americans located near the southern border are risking the real thing to head to Mexico for a cheaper fill-up.

Gas prices are averaging $3.82 a gallon, according to Sunday’s AAA Fuel Gauge Report. But Reuters reports that a regular tank of gas in Mexico is 34.4 pesos per gallon, a price equivalent to $2.94. But is the roughly 90-cent difference worth the hassle?
