Obama and Democrats with their greenies and global banking elite supporters have created yet another unnecessary war by the weakness and dependency they have created in America, especially energy weakness and dependence via their climate scam. Yet, cheap American energy is still the major card Obama could play to repair the situation, to stop the nukes from flying. Read the link below on National Review by Tom Rogan.
The US has THE largest reserves of oil and gas, but the largest US oil companies are 17th on the list of oil producers … because so-called liberals have made most U.S. oil and gas lands (where production is cheaper and safer) off limits and tripled or quadrupled taxes on oil companies in addition to loading them with near impractical regulatory hurdles.
Meanwhile Putin, well experienced in collectivist tyranny, has his energy noose around EU necks. EU has almost no oil, and have fooled themselves in the same collectivist climate scam as the U.S., denying themselves access to their own gas and coal…with the notable exception of the Polish. Ukrainians never stood a chance in Putin’s gambit.

Obama didn’t start this energy crisis, but he has been driving the nails in coffins with each regime change “Arab Spring” he has de-stabilized, armed, and paid for with the lives and wealth of Americans and hopeful freedom lovers …for example the $5 billion the US State Department recently issued to Ukraine while standing in front of Exxon and Chevron posters…$5 billion of U.S. taxpayer money that Americans did not have. Later we will learn about U.S. and NATO covert operators or mercenaries in Ukraine. Obama and his green shirted thugs are playing a fool’s game with world class tyrants who know appeasement is weakness.
The US, NATO, UN, EU and the rest of collectivist elites are trying to protect U.S. petrodollars (trading oil and gas in dollars because dollars are in their reserves), while at the same time pushing oil and gas companies and entire countries to invest in unsustainable energy sources, which are in fact unsustainable without government subsidy, while at the same time not investing in proven U.S. energy resources and not allowing U.S. companies to invest (e.g. XL pipeline, 90% of U.S. lands off limits, shutting down coal, nuclear, refineries, etc.) Their strategy is a fools game, like playing chess by giving away all of your pawns, both castles and knights so only royalty can play.
On the other hand, if the U.S. were to reverse its disastrous oil/gas/energy/climate policy and instead opens the door for exploration, production, refineries, etc. then energy prices will drop quickly. Putin runs out of money and power when that happens. Reagan made a similar move when he brought the Saudis into full production, collapsing the oil price and ending the cold war with the Soviet Union. Today, OPEC and the middle east tyrants will not like the competition from the U.S. Finally, the U.S. could disengage from these continuous, undeclared, expensive and deadly wars.
“Were the president to unleash America’s energy boom into the export sector, fast-tracking energy supplies to Europe, he’d pull the rug out from under Putin’s feet. No longer subject to Putin’s energy protection racket, Europe would be free to take a tougher stand against his intimidation. More important, removed of the foreign capital flows born of his own energy exports, Putin would be unable to support his increasing military expenditures and continuing support for Assad’s rampages in Syria.” ~ Tom Rogan
