Oil and Gas Exports: The World Needs Us

Finally, we have to consider being, once again, a net exporter of energy.

We were under that terrible Orange Man.  I know, I know. Orange Man bad.  Shut up, sissy!

Are you serious about Ukraine? Are you serious about weaning Europe off Russian oil and gas?

It’s a fair pair of questions.

I mean, we screwed Ukraine out of the NATO membership Obama and Lugar, and others, dangled to get them to disarm. We obviously don’t think much of them  So, of what value is Ukraine, right?

Well, I’ll tell you. They are one of the largest net exporter of critical food stuffs on the planet. And Putin is one of the most unstable world leaders since Hitler. I don’t hear GOP people saying enough about how he took his invasion of Ukraine, including Crimea and parts of Georgia, right out of Hitler’s playbook. He copied the Little Corporal’s script  right down to the words he used to justify the invasions. He was saving Russian-speaking people in the countries he invaded.  Just like Hitler was saving German-speaking people in Czechoslovakia and Poland and Austria, etc, etc…

So yes, a stable, free Ukraine is important. However, it is clear Congress and the White House pursued this issue without the serious consideration it deserved.

Had the White House NOT telegraphed what it would and would not sanction; had they NOT allowed Putin and his wretched cronies time to move their assets; had they made it financially impossible for Putin to sell oil, the war would have never been fought. But Brandon, on all these issues, FAILED- miserably.  The little Russian jerk off must have been giggling during the weeks leading to the actual invasion.   He even hesitated in the final days as if doubting even Biden was actually this weak and stupid.

In my humble opinion, Biden did this intentionally. Who cares if Ukrainians die? We have a new shiny object! We can milk this thing for years!

Congress, with more than a little GOP support, has been throwing money at Ukraine with no adult controls built in. We need to find out how stable and IN CONTROL Zelensky really is.  A free Ukraine is the point, right?  But if Zelensky is just a puppet, what have we gained?

All that prologue leads to this: the bleed over. Right now, the little Russian jerk off is, once again, throttling energy to Europe. He is trying to divide the alliance to bolster his adventures in Ukraine. And as I see it we have two choices.

  1. We tell Putin to turn off his undersea pipelines now and bleed them dry, because we are going to drop depth charges on them, unless he keeps it open. If he doesn’t he won’t have a pipeline next year….OR
  2. This one is actually an and/or suggestion. We ratchet up our oil and natural gas production to near a wartime footing and start shipping fleets of oilers and LNG ships to Eastern Europe and Germany.

We should be doing a good bit of the latter anyway. It’s just good business. But if you want to swat both flies with one swipe, this is a good plan. We MUST also freeze any assets we have reach into which allow  Putin to export oil and gas.

But we need to start pounding away at this NOW!  To wait until January, assuming you follow my advice and win, would be pathetic. Have a recognized “moderate” from his Senate days meet with Brandon to make this work.  Biden said himself, in the wretched speech in Philly, that he can work with “moderate” Republicans.  Let him prove it.  Maybe one of his old buddies can teach him to man up.

The real benefit to the American taxpayers is that we will live in an energy independent country. Our nation will be a net exporter of energy. It gives us strength, prosperity and leverage.  And the world, despite the continued presence of Brandon, can stop laughing at us. They need what we have. And we need our allies.

How Pipelines Will Save America…And the World

Before we move on, let’s fix the problems in the previous post.

GOP (and state governors and AGs): The first thing you do on behalf of the 401K and IRA holders in your state is to write a simple and straightforward law that bans the consideration of social issues (or ESG or whatever new name they come up with) in how investment companies, large and small, invest other people’s money.

If successful business people want to invest their personal fortune in ESG type fiascos, they are free to do so.But, without the fix being in with the political whores we discussed earlier, no rich guys would be playing this game. They know it is a loser bet. So stop them from using this same loser bet to screw your citizens and damage retirement accounts. Kill the rigged game.

And kill the carbon footprint compliance while you’re at it. It is arbitrary bullshit anyway. One industry’s carbon footprint is West Virginia’s fart capacity.  It’s meaningless.

At the same time, ORDER the Executive Branch to drop the costs of leases, permits and royalties back to 2015 levels. Recovery needs to be quick!

VOTERS: Call your representatives and SCREAM AT THEM to do this NOW. I’ll give you other things to scream at them about in future calls below.

Remember, this series is about GOP victory. But more important, it’s about repairing the damage the Dems are doing right now! It is assumed that if you are now setting the agenda, the political whores most interested in ESG and windmills are gone. Or they are in the minority. If there are any among GOP ranks (is Mitch one?) put them on a backbench and instruct them to shut the hell up.

So what else has the government been doing to ruin our most important industry in favor of absolute stupidity?

They Killed The Pipelines!

The existence of the keystone pipeline was a matter of law. Brandon had no right to shut it down. None. Resurrect the Keystone law and any others in limbo and authorize the projects, extract most of the regulatory limits the executive can impose.

Pipelines MOVE oil and gas! Lots of it! These projects are critical to the US maintaining it’s standing in the world. They are the key to returning to sustained energy independence.

Pipelines don’t derail and kill and injure people.

Building and maintaining pipelines = jobs.

Unless you are only now self-aware or you are a complete numbskull, you know that starting to build Keystone and doing other projects under Trump was creating hundreds of thousands of jobs. And it isn’t because you are hiring a bunch of guys in hardhats with wrenches.  The ripple effect of having these projects in private hands is that the people working the project need to eat.  They need housing, entertainment, roads, booze, convenience stores.

This is how a nation evolves.  Major centers, like whistle stops on rail lines, become villages and grow into towns.  The fortunes of counties are often improved.  So when the big push moves on, you have new and growing population centers doing all the things any other town or county does. With light governance, and entrepreneurial thinking, these are well-rounded communities.  With “progressive” governance they are just administrative entities that go dark when the circus leaves.

But let’s not lose sight of the fact that we now have a safe, fast, reliable means to move OUR oil to processing and to market.  That’s the goal.  The ripples are just a nice benefit of how America works.

An epiphany!

This one just hit me out of the blue while I was writing that last paragraph. Suggest strongly that the pipeline people use those LFTR reactors to power the pipeline. We talked about them in post 4 of the series. The pumping stations will use only a tiny fraction of the power generated by the small, safe reactors. SO, the pipeline guys can sell most of the power onto the grid at a very attractive price. The possibilities are endless! The mind boggles.

I’ll have to think about that last point.  It’s a brilliance in it’s infancy.  It must be nurtured and coddled. But a truly free nation is, by default, an innovative nation, right?

Holy crap! This series is solving problems on an enormous scale!

Next time we’ll set the world right…for a price…an easy price; more than fair. We’ll still make a killing.

The world needs us!  It needs what the US we will be under the GOP.  What we are fast becoming under “progressives” is of no use to anyone.

Read on, dear friends.

ESG and Your 401k. The Wrecking of Your Retirement Plan

I’ll break this one up. It hits a lot of bases and each needs to be acted on agressivley.

Bottom Line Up Front (BLUF):

  1. Remove impediments to drilling. fix issues with leases, permits, rights of away and royalties.  And get the pipelines finished!
  2. Outlaw the use of ESG in in the investment of private money, IRAs, 401ks. Investment companies have a DUTY to see that their investors make a MARKET return on their money. It is their job to grow that money. They have no right to handicap those returns for personal or nakedly political purposes.
  3. GOP: You should be pounding podiums on this NOW!

People are shocked at the beating our energy sector, especially the oil and gas components, have taken in the last two years. But the truth is the damage has been accumulating since the middle of the Obama years. Trump helped a little, but there are insidious plans being pursued by corrupt government officials and investment banks that want to crush the oil and gas industries and sit atop an absolutely atrocious wind and solar empire of their own creation. As I said in post 4, episode 1, when the real lack of value of wind and solar is finally realized, these wind and solar farms will be rotting hulks blighting our landscape.

The people hatching this plot, like Blackrock and Vanguard, don’t care. They are going to accrue trillions of dollars by then. Their government sycophants have already promised the industry AND money to them. They’re already collecting billions and have barely gotten started.  Then when it goes south, as it will, they will declare bankruptcy, a la Solyndra. Having already made trillions, they will parachute out with what is left of your money.  The hulks will remain, rotting in place.

Part of their plan, already well underway, is to intentionally make oil and gas bad investments. Hard to believe, I know. The most critical resources to our nation are fast becoming impossible to invest in.

Let’s say you own an oil drilling company.

The approach is multi-pronged. Primarily it consists of corrupt officials placing ridiculous restrictions on, for example, drilling companies. You can have the leases, but they are going to make it impossible for any but the most powerful companies to get them. And for those companies, only a few leases per will be authorized.

Once you have the leases, permits will be slow-walked. 9000 such permits were issued early in 2021 by the federal government. You heard Jenn Piss-socky rant about them. Then the federal government actively supported a lawsuit against 4000 of the permits. Only in America!

But let’s say your company gets leases and permits. They cost more than they need to, but you’re ready to start drilling. Oh, oops. The federal or state governments have not granted you access and right of way yet. Or if they have, the considerations are so restrictive as to prohibit you from being able to put your rigs to work effectively.

While this is going on, in an industry already reeling under $BILLIONS in all manner of compliance with thousands of regulations, you now have to analyze your “carbon footprint” and submit annual reports to Mommy Government.

And, of course, there will be royalties paid to the government for the oil extracted.









But wait!  There’s More!

While the government is busy making your life difficult, the investment firms benefiting from your demise, the biggest in the world, are also working against you and openly screwing their private investors and retirement account holders. As I said, they are in bed with those bastard political whores. They have gained a huge chokehold on oil and gas. And they are intentionally sabotaging the industry in favor of the one the government (that’s you) WILL PAY FOR from soup to nuts.

The investment banks place further restrictions of their own on your company when you seek investment. You’ll be required to put people who are LBGQblah, blah, blah on your boards. Or they might demand a BLM member, or a Vice President of Human Happiness. These empty suits are to have a vote on the board! It won’t take a rocket scientist to know how these people will thwart your own oil company’s board and will actually work for the investment firm’s interest and will report to THEM.

The government cronies will require the company seeking investment to eagerly embrace the carbon footprint compliance and look for ways to make it even more onerous. All the while they are supposed to be making money for their account holders. But Blackrock announced this year that their account holders should expect smaller returns for up to ten years while they work out their plan with the political whores.   They are very open about it.  It’s all for a greener environment!  [eye roll]

Solutions!

How to fix this and other energy issues are in the next post.
