By turning the country’s economy over to Big Oil Obama is liquidating the commons and plunging us into a downward spiral of uber costly$$$$ climate chaos. Any consequent positive economic data is consummate hogwash – merely the consequence of not accounting for the externalities related to production and consumption of fossil fuels and fracking. (but you won’t hear about that on TV) It is the oldest political trick in the book: devise a scheme (usually at the environment’s expense (let me know how that’s working out for ya)) where you can realize can allege positive economic aspects now, but where the more than offsetting costs are realized in a later political cycle. Fracking is an excellent example of this plus it employs another common obfuscation where the more than offsetting consequences of the activity are made debatable, withheld, or simply yet generally accepted by some other shortcomings (often by design) in proof.

Obama should not be praised for any alleged economic “growth” but prosecuted for Crimes Against Humanity. Don’t think so? Give it another 5 to 10 years. And yea, he and others can be prosecuted at that time.

Who Will Stop World War III?

Thom plus logo Back in 2001, after 9/11, Congress gave the president the authority to basically wage war anywhere in the world where there were governments affiliated with Al Qaeda, the radical Sunni Muslim group that came out of the Saudi Wahhabist movement. Iran is Shia Muslim, essentially the sworn enemies of the Sunnis.
