President Obama Asks Congress To End Oil Company Subsidies - Congress VOTES - It Ain’t Happening!

White House video image grab
.
Thursday, March 29, 2012
.
    Around midmorning in the Rose Garden of the White House, President Obama urged Congress to vote against giving billions of dollars in tax breaks, also known as TAX Subsidies, to the largest Oil Companies in the United States.
.
    Just how BAD is Obama’s line of thinking on this matter? Well… Just a short time after his little speech… his OWN Democratic controlled Senate voted the Bill -- DOWN! And with a Bipartisan Majority I might add. No other words needed on that! Lol… But, I can’t help myself…
.
   Let’s go back to the President in the Rose Garden this morning. I have never seen so much misinformation, one taking credit for things they had NOTHING to do with, spoken from one President, at one time, in my LIFE! I mean, I had to laugh in total disbelief at what he was saying and expecting MOST Americans to buy into.
Let’s stop here, for now, and watch just what the man had to say this morning. Listen carefully to what he says on what HE HAS DONE for the Oil/Gas efforts of our Country during his run as President.
Lol… This guy is truly all KINDS of a Work of Art!
Read the FULL transcript HERE
-- Video courtesy of the White House --
    Now that you watched the video, let’s start with the following words by President Obama. …Now, I want to make clear, we all know that drilling for oil has to be a key part of our overall energy strategy.  We want U.S. oil companies to be doing well.So far so good… we ALL agree with that. Everyone but Obama… He’s anti oil/gas for god’s sake! And his past actions or non actions of… prove it. Can we say Canadian Pipeline for one?
.
   We want them to succeed.Again… No he doesn’t.That’s why under my administration, we’ve opened up millions of acres of federal lands and waters to oil and gas production.” NO HE HASN’T! The previous Administrations of Bush and Clinton DID!We’ve quadrupled the number of operating oil rigs to a record high.”  NOOO! These things happened on Private or State lands that you, Mr. President have NO control over. You didn’t do CRAP! And you and your administration know it. Yet here you stand before the American people and say it so. What a TOOL!  In fact, all of the Drilling on Federal Lands you DO have control over has been CUT under your Administration by 40%. Not to mention that under your Administration that makes you as having the LOWEST number of onshore leases issued since 1984. Didn’t mention any of that… did ya? And don’t EVEN get us started on your Offshore NON activities. “We’ve added enough oil and gas pipeline to circle the Earth and then some.” We KNOW that one is a lie too!!! Again, past Administrations, YES… you, not so much. Mr. President, if anything your Administration has done everything it could to KILL such things! Again, I use the example of the Canadian Pipeline.  “And just yesterday, we announced the next step for potential new oil and gas exploration in the Atlantic.” Talk… talk… talk… but never ANY ACTION!!! You’re an empty suit, dude… All TALK…. NO ACTION! On these kinds of matters anyway.
.
    “So the fact is, we’re producing more oil right now than we have in eight years, and we’re importing less of it as well.  For two years in a row, America has bought less oil from other countries than we produce here at home -– for the first time in over a decade.” AND NONE OF IT had a THING to do with YOU, Mr. President!
.
    …“And keep in mind, we can’t just drill our way out of this problem.That’s just not so either. As I wrote last week in another post: By using these new technologies, [such as Fracking,] we have found many a MAJOR Natural Gas Field around this great country of ours, the Haynesville Shale being the largest. And with all this new Natural Gas coming on line and flooding the markets… well… prices fell like a rock in a pond, HITTING BOTTOM! … I think we can all remember that it wasn’t but just a few years back that Natural Gas was costing over $15.00 a thousand cubic feet! After the markets got flooded and after an extra warm winter this year… Natural Gas prices have bottomed out and as of the last time I looked, today… it had locked into a trading range for the last two weeks from between $2.20 and $2.40. (And Obama say’s Drill Baby Drill won’t do any good on Oil/Gasoline prices. What the heck does he think happened with NATURAL GAS? The NG Fairy appeared and prices just, DROPPED!!!)As I said, oil production here in the United States is doing very well, and it's been doing well even as gas prices are going up.I say drill like hell and flood the Oil Markets, as we have seen with Natural Gas. And just see what happens. Oil/Gas prices would fall like a bolder in a pond with this one… along with groceries and so on, and so on…  Not to be left out… 100’s of thousands of new JOBS! “Well, the reason is because we use more than 20 percent of the world’s oil but we only have 2 percent of the world’s known oil reserves.All true but the KEY words Obama uses are… 2% of the KNOWN OIL RESERVES. Again, True… But that is very misleading and overlooking all the newly discovered, yet not produced oil and gas fields, onshore and off, that we have as of yet developed. And again… this is all because of all the restrictions and just FLAT OUT not being allowed by the Obama Administration. “And that means we could drill every drop of American oil tomorrow but we’d still have to buy oil from other countries to make up the difference.  We’d still have to depend on other countries to meet our energy needs.  And because it’s a world market, the fact that we’re doing more here in the United States doesn’t necessarily help us because even U.S. oil companies they’re selling that oil on a worldwide market. They’re not keeping it just for us.  And that means that if there’s rising demand around the world then the prices are going to up.” Give us a break man! REALLY!!!
.
   …“I want us to control our own destiny.  I want us to forge our own future.  And that’s why, as long as I’m President, America is going to pursue an all-of-the-above energy strategy, which means we will continue developing our oil and gas resources in a robust and responsible way.  But it also means that we’re going to keep developing more advanced homegrown biofuels, the kinds that are already powering truck fleets across America. 

    We’re going to keep investing in clean energy like the wind power and solar power that’s already lighting thousands of homes and creating thousands of jobs.REALLY!!! Most every Green Energy Company Obama has invested our hard earned tax money into… and we are talking many a Billions of dollars of it… have gone belly-up or in a heap of trouble right now. (Read more at my earlier Post -- Fracking… GOOD! Obama’s Energy Policies… Freaking BAD man!!!)
.
    Yeah… we GOT to get this man out of office this November… He’s KILLING US!

Fracking… GOOD! Obama’s Energy Policies… Freaking BAD man!!!

Post Date: Thursday, March 22, 2012
.
    On March 18, 2011, the U.S. Energy Information Administration, (EIA) reported Natural Gas production from the Louisiana Haynesville Shale, in February, had surpassed production by the Texas Barnett Shale, making it, the Haynesville Shale the TOP producing Natural Gas Field in the United States. That’s right… We’re #1… and LOVING IT!
.
    Let’s take that a little bit further and go worldwide with it. As of today… right now… on Thursday, March 22nd, 2012… the Haynesville Shale is one of the TOP TEN Producing Natural Gas Fields in the ENTIRE WORLD! Now how cool is THAT!!!?
.
    Here are some more fun facts for ya… Over the past three years, Chesapeake Energy Corporation, alone… is reported to have distributed over $14 billion in payments to lease and royalty owners throughout the United States. LOTS of that money, I might add, went into the local Ark-La-Tex area too!
.
    This alone created many a local farmer to become first time Millionaires and if not that… well let’s just say many of them got a LOT wealthier from their Mineral Rights and such.
.
    All in all… the Haynesville Shale has truly shown to have made a VERY positive economic impact benefitting all of northwest Louisiana, generating billions of dollars in new business sales and providing MANY a tens of thousands of new jobs. With this huge amount of money being injected into the local economy, northwest Louisiana was actually spared from the worst effects of the National Slowdown that hit us so hard just a few years back.
.
    With that said… Question! In the not… toooo far off future, which of the following would you rather buy from? A Natural Gas fed Power Plant or one of President Obama’s proposed Wind Farms.
.
    Wind you say? I’m SORRY! There’s really nothing good coming out of all that, at all.
.
    Just ask yourself… Why did Mr. T. Boone Pickens BAIL on his Wind Energy Investments a few years back? Back when that was all you ever heard about in the news, everyday. Something even Obama was pushing hard for himself, I might add. (Ohhh yeah… That’s right… Obama is STILL pushing for all of that!) Well…  After losing $150 million a few years back, from his investments in Wind Energy, (Obama… Sound familiar!!!?) Mr. Pickens decided, and likely so, that alternative energy like Wind wasn’t going to be our bridge to an oil-free future, at least not for some years to come.
..
    Truth be told… Mr. Pickens did give Wind a good go. But after he got DEEP into it and the facts started coming in… along with all those bad numbers, the cost of doing business and the Millions in losses… WELL -- Mr. Pickens got the message, loud and clear. And that message was… Wind is a GREAT Idea! Sadly its time is not yet here… and not going to be either for some years to come.
.
    Mr. Pickens also came to the conclusion that with all these NEW and improved technologies we now have in drilling… Fracking for one if I may, it was time to start using all that to produce CHEAP Natural Gas! And that I might add is just what has been going on for the last few years and by many of the major U.S. Oil/Gas Companies.
.
    By using these new technologies, we have found many a MAJOR Natural Gas Field around this great country of ours, the Haynesville Shale being the largest. And with all this new Natural Gas coming on line and flooding the markets… well… prices fell like a rock in a pond, HITTING BOTTOM!
.
    I think we can all remember that it wasn’t but just a few years back that Natural Gas was costing over $15.00 a thousand cubic feet! After the markets got flooded and after an extra warm winter this year… Natural Gas prices have bottomed out and as of the last time I looked, today… it had locked into a trading range for the last two weeks from between $2.20 and $2.40. (And Obama say’s Drill Baby Drill won’t do any good on Oil/Gasoline prices. What the heck does he think happened with NATURAL GAS? The NG Fairy appeared and prices just, DROPPED!!!)
.
    Now, just think about this… All those Natural Gas Fields we have found of late are 100% OURS… And ALL were found in the good old USA!
.
    I’d say it’s about time we start using this cheap energy of ours, NOW… There are so many of our energy needs today that can use Natural Gas, in one form or the other. And yes… use it we may for many, MANY… decades to come.
.
    President Obama hasn’t got this message I guess. Well… more like he didn’t WANT to get it. Sadly for us, President Obama never will get it either! Face it… He really is a lost cause when it comes to thinking through our National Energy Policy and the bettering of America, TODAY! The man is Anti Oil/Gas for heaven sakes.
.
    Anyway… facts are facts. And as of right now… Cheap technology just isn’t in the cards yet for Wind. (As far as that goes, Solar has been having its run of troubles of late too.) And with NO foreseeable way to get cost down for the developers or you, the consumer… one would literally end up paying twice or more on their electric bill from WIND verses Natural Gas.
.
    I’ll end with this bit of thought by Co-Founder, Chairman and CEO of Chesapeake Energy Corporation, Aubrey K. McClendon who has commented in the recent past…  What's the human cost to doubling electricity prices? What's the human benefit to halving them? I think those are enormously important questions that are never imposed at the same time people say, ‘Fracking is bad.’ (Yes there has been a world of overhyping, false reporting and more on Fracking. That will have to be left for another Post.)
.
For now… NO--
Fracking GOOD!
President Obama’s Energy Policies
Freaking BAD man!!!

Open Letter to President Obama Written by Leaders of Four Large Independent Oil and Gas Exploration and Production Companies

An Open Letter to President Obama: Actions, Not Words, Will Determine Our Energy Future
Wednesday, March 21, 2012
.
Their Open Letter to the President ends like this
.
    … Our industry invests billions of dollars to ensure our operations are conducted in an environmentally responsible manner. However, with more than a dozen federal agencies in your Administration proposing, planning or implementing new regulations -  for little or no environmental benefit - there is considerable risk that increased costs and bureaucratic delays will cripple America’s energy production and halt the renaissance underway in our nation’s steel, plastics, chemical and agricultural industries.
.
    The newfound abundance of oil and gas in America creates for the first time in 50 years the opportunity to break OPEC’s headlock on the American economy and reinvigorate America’s industrial foundation.
.
    Mr. President, your words suggest you want the economic benefits American natural gas and oil can deliver. We hope your actions follow suit - to date they have not.
Read the letter in full, from the beginning HERE
.
The above op-ed was first published by The Oklahoman on March 21, 2012
 It was written by Harold Hamm, Aubrey McClendon, Larry Nichols and Tom Ward. These 4 authors lead Oklahoma City-based large independent oil and gas exploration and production companies… Continental Resources, Chesapeake Energy, Devon Energy and SandRidge Energy

………....…………
Not bad… Not bad at all!
SADLY, knowing President Obama by his actions of past… or should we say non actions of… All will be on closed ears… and mind.
GREAT TRY THOUGH…
