House Dems say Republicans can not visit oil spill

Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) wanted to fly 10 lawmakers down to the Gulf of Mexico to see the damage caused by BP’s gigantic oil spill first hand.

House Democrats said no.

Scalise’s trip was rejected for a variety of bureaucratic and logistical reasons, but it has also opened a new vein of partisan squabbling over who should be allowed to arrange a trip to view the impact of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

Republicans want to be able to take trips using their office spending allowance. But Democrats have heard from the Department of Homeland Security, which has asked that Congress organize trips through committees of jurisdiction, to avoid having to cater to a ton of individual lawmakers in a disaster zone, Democratic aides say. GOP leaders say they’ve heard nothing of this.

The squabbling over who gets to travel to the Gulf on whose dime is the latest sign that congressional oversight of the oil spill oversight from Capitol Hill has been bogged down by partisanship. Congress has held upwards of 20 hearings on the disaster, often duplicative ones each week, as lawmakers struggle to grasp and fully realize the scope of BP’s giant oil spill.

Scalise, who has already been to the Gulf on another codel, wants to organize a trip so lawmakers can fully grasp the impact before they vote on oil drilling regulations. And he doesn’t want to do it through a committee, because the members don’t fit neatly into specific panels — they stretch across committee, and even partisan, lines.

About two weeks ago, Scalise requested to be able to use his Members Representational Allowance – a fund typically reserved for office expenses and travel back to the district – to go to the Gulf with a group of about 10 other lawmakers.

He sought permission from the House Administration committee, which regulates office account spending and would have to approve the trip. After a few weeks, Scalise was ping-ponged between several committees. Eventually, John Lawrence, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) chief of staff, told Scalise’s chief that “it was unlikely that the request would be granted” by the House Administration Committee.

Republicans, however, say Rep. Bob Brady (D-Pa.), who chairs the committee, has approved at least a dozen such trips in 2009 alone – something Democrats don’t deny.

“Unless there is some extraordinary reason to prohibit this trip – which has yet to be communicated to us – this is an unacceptable departure from past practices,” said Rep, Dan Lungren of California, the top Republican on the administration committee. “This is an educational trip for members using their own representational budgets to see, first-hand, the devastating impact of the Gulf spill. Our travel regulations permit this type of travel in support of our official representational duties, and unfortunately, this disaster is already having environmental and economical implications for the entire country – not just those districts represented by Members sitting on the House Energy and Commerce Committee.”

Republicans say that Democrats are just trying to shield lawmakers from going to see the damage in the Gulf.

“Every Member should see the result of eight years of failed Bush-Cheney energy policies that have done nothing to secure our energy future,” said Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill.

So for now, the Scalise visit remains unscheduled.

What a bunch of bull! Pelosis can fly all over the place with two or more jets on tax payers dime and our congress people are not allowed to go see the oil spill. Dems have waaaaay to much control. JUST GO! Forget these corrupt leaders. JUST GO! Some one needs to start standing up to these power hungry upcoming dictators!

Kagan Declines To Say Gov’t Has No Power to Tell Americans What To Eat

God help us if this woman becomes a judge over us!

Senator Tom Coburn asks Kagan, “Do we have the power to tell people what to eat everyday?”

Her hesitation spoke volumes!

Some of you may think I’m kidding. But I tell you the truth: under obamacare we will be FORCED to do it their way or we will get no care. How dare them to set themselves up as little kings and gods over us! How dare them! THEY work for us! We are NOT to be their slaves in word, thought or deed! NEVER!

Gulf Oil Spill – Media Blackout Of New Orleans?

Leave a comment

I have been hearing bits here and there that there is a media blackout in the gulf. I have not put anything up because I have not been able to prove it one way or the other. However today, on the radio, I finally heard someone (Mike Savage) mention it. So I am posting this and let it be up to the readers to decide.

It was said on the radio, no flyovers in the gulf — no helicpoters or planes — are allowed. The reason behind this is that they do not want the public to know the truth about this catastrophe.

It will either get better or worse. If better, then life will go on for millions as it always has been. If for worse, then… connect the dots and come up with your own conclusions.

I would just ask what is it for government to fear in letting the American public know the truth???

Exposing Satan in the music industry

Many people still find it hard to believe that Satan is behind the music industry. They and their their children listen to these “stars” never knowing what is taking place: the robbing of the souls of men, women and children through the satanic industry of music.

A note for the Christians: as the church laughed and laughed with fake revivals over the past two decades, this is what was unfolding behind the scenes. But the church was too busy laughing to notice or care!

Even though the following passage is ascribed to false teachers, it can also be applied to the ungodly of our day:

Perilous Times and Perilous Men

But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! — 2 Timothy 31-4 —

“having a form of godliness but denying its power” would be the same as these vile rock stars and those in the entertainment world wearing their crosses around the necks. AND anyone who gets a tattoo of one thinking somehow it makes them spiritual. Lost and going to hell — it  is what it is, and no tattoo or crucifex around your neck changes that.

And just for the record: If you let this stuff come into your home, you are inviting demons from hell as well. BURN the works of these artists lest you be caught up in the wickedness and when God comes to judge, you will be found guilty following demons.

MTVs Video Music Awards have often incorporated dark and strange acts, containing some occult symbolism. This years version, however, outdid itself. The show left most people wondering what was wrong with Kanye West or trying compute the madness of Lady Gagas performance. The only way to understand the full meaning behind those performances is to look into esoteric teachings. The fact is that the whole awards show took the most common rituals of occult orders and re-enacted them in a show witnessed by the entire world.

This years VMAs were very different from other awards shows. They focused on a very limited number of artists (Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga), while ignoring many others who were equally successful. The chosen artists became characters in the VMAs ceremony and acted out different ritual dramas. This might sound totally crazy to the average MTV viewer but those acquainted with the practices of occult orders (such as Freemasonry) can decode the references to sacred rituals. There are numerous types of fraternities and rituals, from the most noble to the most infernal, and they have existed throughout History. The VMAs were decisively inspired by dark, sinister and even Satanic ceremonies. Lets look at those rituals.

Amazing Cartoon from 50 years ago predicted today!

I posted this cartoon a year ago. I’m bringing it to the fore front again, for the sake of those who still do not get it. If a child can understand something so simple, an adult has no excuse.

Parents, want to be able to explain what is going on in politics today? Then get your children to watch this old cartoon from 50 years ago! This is absolutely amazing! It’s for everybody; young and old, all races and creeds, both conservative and liberal! There’s only one thing wrong with it. The cartoon characters had much more guts at the end of it than we do!

Discovery of Natural Gas in Israel is a World-class Game Changer

The massive natural gas find in Israel and political tensions with Turkey, could put Turkey out of the energy story with Israel. It’s a big deal, says Washington based energy analyst Gal Luft.

A door has been closed. But amid the roar, the creak of an opening window was faintly audible. This window, a gigantic deposit of natural gas called Leviathan, 6.5 times the size of Tel Aviv, was found, roughly 100 nautical miles from where the flotilla fiasco took place and well within Israel’s extended territorial waters.

An old adage says that when God closes a door, somewhere he opens a window. To most people, the events off the coast of Gaza marked a sharp decline in Israel’s strategic posture. The Mavi Marmara incident sparked international condemnation and delivered what may have been a death blow to Jerusalem’s already precarious relations with Turkey. For decades that country was Israel’s closest ally in the Muslim world, but since the election of Recep Tayyip Erdogan, it is increasingly in the thrall of fundamentalist Islam.

A door has been closed. But amid the roar, the creak of an opening window was faintly audible. This window, a gigantic deposit of natural gas called Leviathan, 6.5 times the size of Tel Aviv, was found, roughly 100 nautical miles from where the flotilla fiasco took place and well within Israel’s extended territorial waters.

This discovery may provide Israel with security in terms of its supply of electricity, turn it into an important natural gas exporter and provide a shot in the arm of some $300 billion over the life of the field – one-and-a-half times the national GDP – to the Israeli economy, already one of the most resilient in the world.

More importantly, this discovery is nothing short of a geopolitical game changer. To understand its magnitude, consider this: The world’s biggest gas discovery in 2009, 238 billion cubic meters, was made by a US-Israel consortium at a site called Tamar, 60 miles off the coast of Haifa. The nearby Leviathan field is estimated to be twice that size.

Altogether the basin in the eastern Mediterranean to which those fields belong could contain an amount of gas equivalent to one-fifth of U.S. natural gas reserves. For a small country like Israel, such a bonanza could not have come at a better time.

Until recently, Israel was facing an energy predicament. Its fast-growing population – and the even faster-growing Palestinian Arab population to which it also supplies electricity – and the declining reserves of Egypt, its main gas supplier, required the identification of new sources of gas for electricity production.

One alternative was to import natural gas from Russia and the Caspian Sea via Turkey. To this end, Turkey and Israel negotiated the construction of a subsea pipeline. But with the deterioration of their relations, this option gradually became unfeasible. Another option was to import gas from Qatar, hardly a reliable supplier. Yet a third, more costly, possibility was construction of a liquefied natural gas terminal, which would enable imports from various suppliers.

The discoveries at Tamar and Leviathan solved the problem: Israel will no longer have to import natural gas. Its dilemma now, rather, is deciding where to export the excess and how to reap the most geopolitical gains from its new status as an energy exporter.

Geographically, the most natural market is Europe, where any non-Russian gas is more than welcome. There are three ways for Israel to access this market. The first is to construct a pipeline to Turkey, where Israeli gas would join product from the Caspian region en route to Central Europe. This option is highly unlikely to be realized in the current atmosphere of Israel-Turkey relations.

Alternately, and more likely, Israel could construct a pipeline to Greece via Cyprus or pipe it inland, liquefy it and export it to any European liquefied natural gas terminal by sea. Europe is not the only potential market in such a scenario. Once liquefied, Israeli gas could be directed to China, South Korea and Japan, which collectively consume more than half of the world’s LNG.

From a geopolitical standpoint, gas exports to India would be most beneficial to Israel. With hundreds of millions of its citizens facing energy poverty, India urgently needs reliable natural gas suppliers. One option for that country is to join the Iran-Pakistan pipeline – a project aimed at connecting Pakistan to Iran’s South Pars field by 2014. Should India decide to extend the pipeline, it will become beholden to Iranian gas for decades to come, to the detriment of Western efforts to weaken Iran economically.

Alternately, should India decide to construct LNG terminals along its coast, it will be able to import natural gas from Israel as well as other exporters, like Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

The creation of an energy corridor from Israel to the Indian subcontinent would mean that Israel would have to retrofit the existing 150-mile oil pipeline linking the Red Sea port of Eilat with the Mediterranean port of Ashkelon. Once this pipeline commences operation, Russian and Caspian natural gas could reach the Asian markets as well.

Ironically, the biggest casualty of such an energy corridor will be none other than Turkey, which now enjoys an unchallenged status as an energy bridge between East and West. Energy transit fees are an important source of income to the Turkish economy.

In the coming years, Israel will have to decide whether to direct its gas to Asia or to compete with Turkey over access to the European gas market. Should it choose the latter, Turkish-Israeli relations will remain in rough seas.

Arizona VA (?) Mass Grave

I hate to sound morbid, but they have to have a place to put the dead bodies from the catastrophes (man made or otherwise) that is coming to this nation.

All meant to help further the New World Order I might add.

bloodwillow1: March 26, 2009

Over 7600 crypts are being installed just north of Phoenix Arizona. Each Crypt has been said to hold four bodies each. The total amount of people that could be laid to rest here is over 30,000. At the current rate of burial, around 3000 per year, this National cemetery should be good for the nest ten years. Maybe now we are starting to see the other side of the equation to those plastic coffins in Georgia.

At 5:00 — “I get 600 graves an acre. This way, I get a thousand.”
