    Obama's Silver Bullet To Higher Gas Prices




    Date: February 17, 2011 3:30:13 PM EST
    Subject: Obama's College Roommate speaks out

    By Wayne Allyn Root, June 6th, 2010
    Barack Hussien Obama is no fool.
    He is not incompetent.
    To the contrary, he is brilliant.
    He knows exactly what he's doing.
    He is purposely overwhelming the U.S. economy to create systemic failure, economic crisis and social chaos -- thereby destroying capitalism and our country from within.
    Barack Hussien Obama is my college classmate (Columbia University, class of '83).He is a devout Muslim do not be fooled.Look at his Czars...anti-business..anti- american
    As Glenn Beck correctly predicted from day one, Barack Hussien Obama is following the plan of Cloward & Piven, two professors at Columbia University.

    They outlined a plan to socialize America by overwhelming the system with government spending and entitlement demands.

    Add up the clues below.
    Taken individually they're alarming.
    Taken as a whole, it is a brilliant, Machiavellian game plan to turn the United States into a socialist/Marxist state with a permanent majority that desperately needs government for survival ... and can be counted on to always vote for bigger government....

    If the threat of more oil in the future will not lower the price of oil now, why DOES the threat of less oil in the future drive up the price immediately?

    check this out...

    Oil Anyone?


    Why is Gas $3.47/9 a gallon???


    OIL - You better be sitting down when you read this !!!!!!

    Cruz Construction started a division in North Dakota just 6 months ago.They sent every Kenworth (9 trucks) they had in Alaska to North Dakotaand several drivers.

    They just bought two new Kenworth's to add to that fleet; one being aTri Drive tractor and a new 65 ton lowboy to go with it.

    They also bought two new cranes (one crawler & one rubber tired) forthat Invasion.

    Dave Cruz said they have moved more rigs in the last 6 months in NDthan Cruz Construction moved in Alaska in the last 6 years.

    Williston is like a gold rush town; they moved one of our 40 man campsdown there since there are no rooms available.

    Unemployment in ND is the lowest in the nation at 3.4 percent last I checked.

    See anything in the national news about how the oil industry isfueling North Dakota's economy?

    Here's an astonishing read. Important and verifiable information:

    About 6 months ago, the writer was watching a news program on oil andone of The Forbes Bros. Was the guest.

    The host said to Forbes, "I am going to ask you a direct question and IWould like a direct answer; how much oil does the U.S. Have in the ground?"Forbes did not miss a beat, he said, "More than all the Middle Eastput Together."The U.S. Geological Service issued a report in April 2008 that onlyScientists and oil men knew was coming, but man was it big.

    It was a revised report (hadn't been updated since 1995) on how much oil wasIn this area of the western 2/3 of North Dakota, western South Dakota, andExtreme eastern Montana

    Check THIS out:

    The Bakken is the largest domestic oil discovery since Alaska's Prudhoe Bay,And has the potential to eliminate all American dependence on foreignoil. The Energy InformationAdministration (EIA) estimates it at 503 billion barrels. Even if just10% of the oil is recoverableBillion barrels), at $107 a barrel,We're looking at a resource base worth more than $5.3 trillion."When I first briefed legislators on this, you could practically seetheir Jaws hit the floor.

    They had no idea.." says Terry Johnson, the Montana Legislature'sfinancial analyzer.

    "This sizable find is now the highest-producing onshore oil fieldfound in The past 56 years," reports The Pittsburgh Post Gazette.

    It's a formation known as the Williston Basin, but is more commonlyreferred To as the 'Bakken.'

    It stretches from Northern Montana, through North Dakota and into Canada.For years, U.S. Oil exploration has been considered a dead end.

    Even the 'Big Oil' companies gave up searching for major oil wells decades Ago.However, a recent technological breakthrough has opened up theBakken's Massive reserves,

    And we now have access of up to 500 billion barrels. And because thisis Light, sweet oil,

    Those billions of barrels will cost Americans just $16 PER BARREL!!!!!!

    That's enough crude to fully fuel the American economy for 2041 years Straight..

    And if THAT didn't throw you on the floor, then this next one should -Because it's from 2006 !!!!!!

    U.S. Oil Discovery - Largest Reserve in the World

    Stansberry Report Online - 4/20/2006

    Hidden 1,000 feet beneath the surface of the Rocky Mountains lies theLargest untapped oil reserve in the world.

    It is more than 2 TRILLION barrels. On August 8, 2005 President BushMandated its extraction.

    In three and a half years of high oil prices none has been extracted.With this mother lode of oil why are we still fighting over off-shore Drilling?

    They reported this stunning news:

    We have more oil inside our borders, than all the other provenreserves on Earth.

    Here are the official estimates:

    8 times as much oil as Saudi Arabia

    18 times as much oil as Iraq

    21 times as much oil as Kuwait

    22 times as much oil as Iran

    500 times as much oil as Yemen

    And it's all right here in the Western United States !!!!!!

    HOW can this BE? HOW can we NOT BE extracting this? Because theEnvironmentalists and others have blocked all efforts to help America becomeIndependent of foreign oil! Again, we are letting a small group of peopleDictate our lives and our economy. WHY?

    James Bartis, lead researcher with the study says we've got more oil in thisVery compact area than the entire Middle East, more than 2 TRILLION barrelsUntapped. That's more than all the proven oil reserves of crude oil in theWorld today, reports The Denver Post.

    Don't think 'OPEC' will drop its price even with this find? Think again!It's all about the competitive marketplace, it has to.

    Think OPEC just might be funding the environmentalists?

    Got your attention yet? Now, while you're thinking about it, do this:

    Pass this along. If you don't take a little time to do this, then you shouldstifle yourself the next time you complain about gas prices, by doingNOTHING, you forfeit your right to complain.

    Now I just wonder what would happen in this country if every one of you sentthis to everyone in your address book.

    By the way, this can be verified. Check it out at the link below !!!!!!

    <http://www.usgs.gov/newsroom/article.asp?ID=1911>



    I work in the oilfield on Alaska's "north slope" along the arctic ocean, i can tell you that there is no shortage of oil here.. only government minimizing what we can extract and where we can drill.

    Funny... Yesterday I decided to fill up, as I was sitting at 1/4 tank... Paid $4.41 with my debit card (.10 cent hike from $4.31)... Slowly getting back to $4.50 and $5 prices again... Funny thing is they only do this $#@! in NYC, but once you go upstate, it's whatever the advertised price is, no hike in price for using a debit/credit card..

    They do it because they claim that using a CC to pay is more expensive because of the fee's the Station has to pay to process CC transactions, which I understand... But I don't use my CC, I use my Debit Card, which is technically like using cash as it comes directly out of my checking account and not a line of credit... I'm just going to have to start carrying around money when it's time to gas up... I hate carrying large amounts of cash... (it's almost $90 to fill my tank)... Baller... Click here to enlarge

    $90 is nothing....the new diesel truck I just got has a 35 gallon tank. Even at NJ prices (3.81 at Hess for diesel), is around $130-140 to fill up Click here to enlarge. I also plan to get a Titan fuel tank so I can hold closer to 50 gallons or more. Fill up once a month for $300 -___-

    The government has kept gas prices artificially low for years. It is silly to think it can go on for ever guys. Looks at the prices in any other developed country. Are we special or something, a globally traded and demanded resource should for some reason be cheaper here? Especially when some of the top producers or said resource are trying to raise its price.

    Stop the fear mongering.
    Never thought I would see the day...

    Yet in Saudi Arabia they pay like $13 USD for 20 gallons of gas...
    In Europe you would pay like $200 USD for that same 20 gallons
    and in the USA you would pay like $80-90 for that same 20 gallons... We could have prices like Saudi, if we would tap those reserves that exist in our own country... but... oh well...
