Some more equal than others – Tea Party Nation

Some more equal than others – Tea Party Nation.

 Posted by Judson Phillips

One of the greatest lines from George Orwell’s novel Animal Farm was, “All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others.”


Animal Farm was an allegorical novel by George Orwell, where the animals rise up, depose the human owners of the farm and declare all to be equal.

 America is a nation that declares all to be equal.  Yet we are seeing with the Obama Regime, not all are equal.

 Who does the Obama Regime consider to be more equal than others and who does the Obama Regime consider to be enemies of the state?

 For weeks now, stories have come out of Washington about how the Tea Party and other conservative groups have been targeted by the IRS and sometimes other agencies.

 When it comes to religions, the Obama Regime definitely believes that some religions are more equal than others.

 According to the Christian Post, the Coalition for Life of Iowa was asked as a part of the process to obtain non-profit status to have its board of directors sign a letter under penalty of perjury that the group would not protest outside Planned Parenthood.

 In a later letter, they were asked about the content of their prayers.

 This is not the only instance of Christian groups being targeted by the Obama Regime.  An Army briefing earlier this year listed Evangelical Christianity as a part of the threat from “religious extremism.”  Also listed in the same category was Al Qaeda.  The Catholic Church was also listed at a part of the threat of Religious Extremism.  One other example of a threat from religious extremism was something called, “Islamophobia.”

 On the other hand, Islam is treated as the religion that is more equal than others. 

 One of the myriad of Obama scandals has been the NSA surveillance scandal.  As Sarah Palin said Saturday at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s “Road to the Majority” conference, “Our government spied on every single one of your phone calls but couldn’t find two pot-smoking deadbeat Bostonians with a hotline to terrorist central in Chechnya.”

 Why couldn’t they find these guys?

 Well, among other reasons, Mosques are off limits to FBI surveillance.

 According to Investors Business Daily, since October 2011, Mosques have been off limits.   One thing every Islamic Terrorist who has hit America since 9/11 has in common is involvement in a Mosque.  Tamerlin Tsarnaev had an outburst at his Mosque in Boston before he and his brother bombed the Boston Marathon.   The officials of the Mosque did not tell Federal authorities about Tsarnaev and since the FBI could not conduct surveillance at the Mosque, they remained clueless. 

 Nadal Hassan, the Army Major who committed mass murder at Fort Hood in 2009 openly espoused radical Islamic beliefs and even walked around with business cards that said he was “SOA” or a “Soldier of Allah.”

 The FBI, as the Blaze reported in 2012, did not investigate Hassan because of political correctness.   Even though FBI agents saw emails between Hassan and radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, they were prevented from investigating him.

 While the Army would not investigate a man who had alarming connections to terrorists and who went on to commit mass murder, three years later, the Army is on the ball and is investigating a real threat to the Army.

 According to the Fox News, Army Master Sergeant Nathan Sommers, a soldier with twenty five years service has been given a reprimand (which will effectively end his career) for serving Chic-fil-A sandwiches at his promotion party, supporting the Defense of Marriage Act (which is the law of the land) and reading books by David Limbaugh and Mark Levine.

 Someone who is allied with our Islamic enemies and who eventually commits mass murder cannot be investigated but a patriotic American soldier must be punished.

Welcome to Obama’s America.  Here some truly are more equal than others.


Failure – Tea Party Nation



Failure – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

How many other words can you use to describe the Obama Regime?  The failures are massive.  But it is not just the failures that we look at.  If we look behind the failures, to the not so obvious questions, the Obama Regime only gets worse.

 What is the cost of these failures?  Is it simply a wrecked economy and a diminished nation or is it even worse?

 It is worse.

 The greatest failure of the Obama Regime is the way they have killed those who are working to protect America

 Obama’s policies have been so far beyond wrong, they are criminal.  To start with, the rules of engagement in Afghanistan do nothing but make American military personnel there targets.  With no clear plan for victory, all Obama is doing is asking young Americans to go and die for him so he will not get blamed for losing Afghanistan (at least before the election).

 And now there is Benghazi.

 According to retired military officers who appeared on Fox News, their sources told them that Obama watched the attacks live in the White House.   Not only did Obama not give orders to help those men under attack, someone in the White House gave an order for troops only a mile a way, who could have helped, to stand down.   Given the way Obama acted towards our troops in peril, I have to wonder if he stood up and cheered when the compound was overrun!

 The death of our Americans in Benghazi is criminal.

 The story gets worse the more we hear about it. Obama knew immediately this was a terrorist attack.  For two weeks, he and his regime instead went out and not only groveled before radical Islamists but attacked our First Amendment.  He gave aid and comfort to the radical Islamists worldwide who want to deny freedom of speech and criminalize “Insulting Islam.”

 Then the details slowly leaked out that this was not a short firefight.  The former Navy Seals, who may have disobeyed orders to stand down and instead went to the aid of their fellow Americans, fought for seven hours before being killed.  There was easily enough time to bring in reinforcements.

 This story may even be worse.

 There may have been reinforcements on scene that were denied permission to intervene.   According to published reports, there were CIA personnel who had spotted the mortar crew that was attack the compound.  This group was “painting” the mortar with a laser designator. 

 Why do you do that?

 The answer is simple.  You are identifying a target so it can be struck immediately by airpower. 

 Why were these guys designating a target if there was no air support available?   The answer is simple.  There was something there and someone denied it permission to fire and help our guys on the ground.  According to a former Delta Force Operator on the blog site BlackFive, there are only two people who could have ordered a plane or an armed drone overhead not to fire.  One was the Africom Commander, who has been mysteriously relieved of his command, and the other is the President.

 Here is another failure to ask about.  After the incident was over, and Ambassador Stevens had been drug through the streets, tortured and murdered, why wasn’t the compound secured?

 This compound has been referred to as a Consulate.  It is nothing of the kind.  It was a CIA operations hub in Libya.  In theory it was being used by the CIA to try and track down weapons that had been lost during the revolution against Muammar Qaddafi.   According to other published reports it was a hub for the recruitment of jihadist fighters to go to Syria and to facilitate the transfer of weapons to the Syrian rebels.

 Why wasn’t this compound immediately secured?  For days it was left open.  CNN employees came in to the site and found Chris Stevens’ diary.   Other media members went to the site and found sensitive and possibly classified documents at the burned out compound.

 The Obama Regime has failed completely.  The whole Benghazi affair stinks to high heaven.  One of the first things President Romney should do is direct the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation of this matter, present it to a grand jury and let American citizens decide what should be done with those who willingly let Americans die.

Foreign entanglements – Tea Party Nation

Foreign entanglements – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

George Washington wisely suggested to the new nation that it avoid foreign entanglements.  We have one foreign entanglement that is not only a disaster for America, but it may impact our Presidential election.

 What is it and why should every American be outraged?

 The entanglement is the United Nations.

 The United Nations was Franklin Roosevelt’s brainchild.  Roosevelt was the closest thing to a dictator this nation has ever had.  He almost had his dream of a socialist, centrally planned economy during World War 2 thanks to the powers a war time President has.  He directed his aide and Soviet spy Alger Hiss to draw up the plans for the UN.

 Isn’t that wonderful.  A communist spy gave us the United Nations.

 Now the UN is doing more than simply being a massive waste of American tax dollars. 

 It is actually interfering in an American election.

 The United Nations is sending observers to watch conservative groups in the upcoming Presidential electoin.  The Obama Regime claims these conservative groups are trying to suppress voter turn out.  The only voters these activists are trying to suppress are the dead voters that Democrats amazingly turn up every four years.

 The UN is not interested in dead voters or the Democrats who vote early and vote often but they are interested in groups that are trying to ensure a fair and accurate election.

 If that was not bad enough, the UN has all but endorsed Barack Obama.

 Ben Emmerson is the United Nation’s Special Rapporteur on Counter Terrorism and Human Rights.  He has said electing Mitt Romney would be a “democratic mandate for torture.”  It seems this brain donor objects to the fact that we used enhanced interrogation techniques on terrorists like Sheik Khalid Mohammad and Mitt Romney is refusing to promise we won’t use it again if he is elected.

 Thanks to the use of those enhanced interrogation techniques, we stopped a number of terrorist attacks on America.  I guess Emmerson would have been happier if we gave these terrorists four star suites at the Hilton and let thousands of Americans die.

 This idiot has in the past demanded that the United States turn over videotapes and other classified information or face a UN Inquiry over drone strikes against terrorists.

 Emmerson wants America to stop drone attacks that are killing terrorists.   Unfortunately he shows no such concern for the lives of Americans who are targets of terrorism.

 In addition to interfering with our elections, the UN wants to trample our constitution.   The UN Small Arms treaty is working its way through the final process of being approved.  Many people believe Barack Obama will sign this treaty that could devastate our 2nd Amendment rights after the election.

 This terrible treaty takes the far left position that self-defense is a collective right of society, not an individual right.  As such, all nations are encouraged to restrict and even ban the private ownership and transfer of guns.

 Our founding fathers were far smarter than any of those clowns at the United Nation.  The UN calls Israel a rogue nation yet puts the genocidal leader of the Sudan on the Human Rights Council

 The real question is why the United States is even a part of this organization any more?

 The United Nation champions nations that are not free and condemns those that are.  It is the enemy of freedom and liberty.  It demands a phenomenal amount of money from America.  Basically we are paying the bill so they can say we are evil.  We are paying the bill so they can interfere in our elections and in our government. 

 Regrettably Mitt Romney has said nothing about this.  It would be great if he were to expel the United Nations from America and get America out of the United Nations.

 If he will not, it is long past time that We the People stand up and demand that America leave the United Nations.


Benghazi: The truth – Tea Party Nation

Benghazi: The truth – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

Republicans held Congressional hearings yesterday on the disaster at the Benghazi Consulate that killed four Americans.  If the Republicans did not control Congress, these hearings would never have happened.

 These hearings exposed the shocking truth, not the propaganda the Obama Regime wanted us to believe.  What is the truth about Benghazi?

 The truth is the Obama Regime lied.  The truth is Benghazi was the result of Obama policies in the Middle East.  The truth is the Obama Regime, instead of acting like America is a superpower, tried instead to appease savages. 

 The truth is the Obama Regime knew within hours this was a terrorist attack.  Even as they deliberately lied to the American people, they knew what was really behind the attack.  They blamed the attack on the actions of a filmmaker and decried the freedom that makes America great. 

 At the time they knew they were sitting on a time bomb.  The truth is the boots on the ground warned the political appointees of the Obama Regime that help was needed.  They told Washington more security was needed.  They protested the withdrawal of security and support personnel.   

 One former regional security officer in Libya, Eric Nordstrom compared the people in Washington to the Taliban, saying they were a greater enemy because they would not give the people in Libya the support they needed. 

 Nordstrom added it was abundantly clear that the Embassy in Libya would not get the security it needed until after an attack.

 That is exactly what happened.

 Four Americans died.  A United States Ambassador was raped and murdered. 

 Another State Department employee said the attack on September 11th on the compound, was “instantly recognizable” as a terrorist attack. 

 The story that is getting almost no traction out of this whole debacle was raised yesterday by, of all people, Dennis Kucinich

 He asked how many shoulder-fired surface to air missiles were missing since Obama got the bright idea that we should help overthrow Qaddafi.  “10,000 to 20,000” was the answer.

 The one issue that no one else is talking about is that the two former Navy Seals who were killed in the attack were not there to protect the consulate.  They were in Libya looking for weapons that were missing since the fall of Qaddafi.

 10,000 to 20,000 missing surface to air missiles is not only alarming, it is a disaster.  The number is given as a range because no one knows for sure.  Missing means they cannot be located.  Some may have been destroyed.  Others may still be in warehouses.  But given that Al-Qaeda and other Islamist militias looted Qaddafi’s armories, it is almost a certainty that some of those missiles are now in the hands of terrorists.

 In criminal law, lawyers are trained to look for motive.  Motive goes a long way to explaining why people engage in certain actions. 

 What was the motive for attacking the Benghazi consulate?  Granted it was a target of opportunity, since it was poorly guarded.    But what was the motive?  Did the terrorists know that the Ambassador was there?  Was he the target or could the purpose of that attack have been to disrupt American efforts to account for and recover those missiles?

 Can you imagine the effect if only ten of those missiles were smuggled into America and used against commercial airliners?  The results would be devastating.   It would worse than 9/11.

 Could this be the motive for the Obama Regime to lie?

 If this was a terrorist attack, sooner or later someone needs to ask the question, why this target?

 If the Regime were to announce that 10,000 to 20,000 shoulder fired surface to air missiles were lost because Obama decided that Qaddafi should be overthrown, the blame would fall on Obama.    What would happen if those missiles were used against Western airliners?  That too would be blamed on Obama.

 As with everything else in the Obama Regime, politics trumps all.

 The only questions that remain now are how many of those missiles do terrorist groups have and when will they use them?  Oh there is one other question.

 How many Americans will die because of Barack Obama and his policies of idiocy?

A team of lies – Tea Party Nation

A team of lies – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

Politicians lie.  There is no great shock in that statement.  In fact, if you believe politicians, perhaps you should buy some ocean front property for sale in Tennessee. 

 There is a huge difference between politicians lying and our government lying.  It is even worse when the lies are an attack on America’s freedom.

 Who is lying, what are the lies and will anything happen?

 The entire government lied.  They have now admitted the lie.  The lie was Muslim outrage in the Middle East that resulted in attacks on our Embassy in Egypt and our Consulate in Benghazi and the death of our Ambassador was caused by this movie called “The innocence of the Muslims,” and were not a coordinated terrorist attack.

 Almost immediately after the attacks, anyone whose brain cells were not on the endangered species list realized the attacks were coordinated terrorist attacks on America. 

 It is hard to tell what is worse.  The fact the Obama Regime immediately lied about it or expected that the American people would believe such an incredibly bad lie. 

 Had this been George W. Bush in the White House instead of Barack Hussein Obama in the White House, every journalistic effort would have been put forth to disprove the lie.  There would have been huge media exposes on the lies from the White House. 

 Instead, we have the media’s anointed candidate running for reelection, so the media is mostly uninterested in the story. 

 Just to make sure we are all on the same sheet of music, let’s go over this again.   Terrorists attack our consulate in Benghazi.  The murder and possible rape our Ambassador.  They drag his body through the streets.  They burn the Consulate.  The rip down the American flag and put the flag of Al-Qaeda in its place.  The Obama Regime does nothing to secure the consulate so that news organizations (and no telling who else) is able to go to the site and pick up sensitive documents including Chris Stevens’ personal diary.   The Obama Regime then not only lies to the American people about this, but also attacks our First Amendment rights not only in America but also at the United Nations.  The Regime, instead of expressing outrage that our diplomatic post was attacked and our citizens murdered, apologizes to the terrorists for some bad film that may have hurt their feelings.

 What does the media want to talk about?

 Big Bird. 

 The Regime has now come clean and admitted that there never was a protest about this film.  The attack on the Benghazi consulate was a terrorist attack.  Not only that, there were warnings days in advance.  In addition, the Embassy in Libya repeatedly requested security, which the Obama Regime removed in August. 

 Instead of demanding to know from the Obama Regime, what did it know, when did it know it and what did it do, the media instead wants to talk about how Joe Biden really is ready for Paul Ryan.

 There are a few in the media who are asking questions, such as ABC’s Jake Tapper.

 The fact the Obama Regime lied to American and was willing to sacrifice the freedoms of the First Amendment to support their lie is not only outrageous, it is another reason why Obama must go.

Lies, damn lies and Obama unemployment numbers – Tea Party Nation


Lies, damn lies and Obama unemployment numbers – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

It probably should not shock anyone that unemployment magically dropped to 7.8%.  If you think that is interesting, wait until the first Friday in November when unemployment is magically going to drop to below 7.5%.

 What are the real unemployment numbers and what does it mean?

 First, I predicted some months ago that right before the election, the numbers would magically drop in Obama’s favor.  The hard cold fact is no president in the modern era has been reelected with unemployment over 7.1%.    Obama and his team know that if they can get unemployment down to 7.5%, they have a chance.

 Did unemployment really drop?

 If you believe it did, you believe that Obama really wants to cut spending.  You believe he really has America’s best interests at heart.  And if you believe that, I have ocean front property in Tennessee to sell you. 

 The unemployment number is what is referred to as the U3 number.   I like to call this the cook the books number.  It means nothing.

 The real number is the U6 number.  The U6 number is the aggregate of all of the people who are not working.  U6 is the real number and it is 14.7%.  These are unemployment levels that reflect the economy.  These are numbers worthy of the Great Depression.  This is why I refer to our economy as the Great Obama Depression.

 Another true factor to look at is work force participation.  The labor force participation is at 63.6%.  That means that only 63.6% of adult Americans are in the work force.  The all time low, hit last month, was 63.5%.  These are not the numbers you will hear about from the Obama Propaganda Media. 

 To put this in perspective, the U6 was 8.0 percent the last time Republicans controlled the government.   The U3 was at 4.6%. 

 In September, allegedly 114,000 jobs were created.  Compare this to the 300,000 jobs created per month, which was a norm during the Bush years.  If the labor force were still the size it was when Obama took office, unemployment would be 10.7%.

 In short, Obama has destroyed our jobs market and our economy.  It is the equivalent of an obese patient losing weight because they are dying.  Yes the scale is moving in the right direction, but the disease is killing the patient. 

  I’m willing to go out on a limb here with a few predictions.  First, the propaganda media will be beside themselves tonight.  They will report throughout the weekend how much better the economy is doing.  They will ignore the economic bad news.

 Second, in a couple of weeks, we will get the revised figures on the jobs report.  And it will be not nearly as rosy as the Obama Regime is telling us it is today.  The media will bury that story.   This is a habit with both the Regime and the media.  When the jobs numbers are revised in the middle of the month, and the news from those revisions is always bad, the media ignores the story. 

 The only reason there is even a flicker in the economy right now is the creative accounting from the Obama Regime. 

 My friends over at like to refer to the media as the Palace Guards for Obama.  You can expect more protection for Obama from his Palace Guards. 

 What you will not get from the media is the truth.


A dangerous world and an idiot President – Tea Party Nation

A dangerous world and an idiot President – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

Is Obama merely clueless and incompetent or is he maliciously stupid? 

 The question is not as important as the reality that we live in a dangerous world and Obama is making it a more dangerous place.

 hat is he doing and what must we do to stop him?

 America burns while Obama fiddles; or in his case goes to campaign fundraisers.   Obama can’t go to his intelligence briefings and the most dangerous place in the world is the space between Obama and a golf course or a Jay-Z fundraiser.

 While the Obama Regime was not paying attention to national intelligence briefings, warnings and common sense, our Embassies and Consulates were attacked.  Instead of dealing with it, what is the Obama Regime doing?

 The State Department has announced they are not answering any more questions about the attacks until the FBI completes its investigation.

 Ignoring the fact that is a great way to stonewall, what the hell is the FBI doing there?   The FBI is there because liberals cannot acknowledge certain truths.  Attacking our Embassy and Consulate is not a crime.  It is an act of war.  We do not give those who make war on us a jury trial.  We send our military to destroy them.

 Unfortunately, the enemy is Islam and Democrats cannot acknowledge that.   Islamists are now a part of the coalition of the Party of Treason.  At the Democrat National Convention, the Dems turned down Cardinal Timothy Dolan (though they did reverse themselves at the last minute) but welcomed with open arms Islamists who call for the overthrow of the American government and replacing it with an Islamic government.

 As the world goes up in flames, Obama’s top priority, other than saving his job, is cutting defense spending.  Why the hell John Boehner pushed through the sequester is a question that someone should be asking and why he is still the speaker is another question that should be asked. 

 A war is breaking out in the Middle East and it will spread.  We need more, not less, defense spending because we are about to have to defend America.

 Defending America may become impossible thanks to Obama.  With his reckless spending and borrowing, he has put America on the road to fiscal decline that may not be reversible.

 Egan-Jones dropped America’s credit rating to AA-.  This is three steps down from AAA, which is where we were when Obama took over.   All of this is because of the Quantitative Easing that Ben Bernanke is doing.  QE3 is to save jobs or at least one job.  Obama’s job.

 The problem America will soon face is our mushrooming debt that will destroy our ability to function as a nation.  The only reason our national debt has not blown up in our face right now is we are borrowing at historically low rates.   If the rates go back even to historically normal rates, we will soon see the interest alone on the debt consuming most of our budget.  If our credit continues to be downgraded, we will not even have historically normal interest rates.  We will get the interest rates reserved for Greece or Mafia loan sharks. 

 The problem and the enemy is Islam.  The Obama Regime thinks freedom and liberty are the enemy.  This week, they tried to blame the Embassy attacks on some obscure film that offends Muslims.   They ignored the screams of the mobs saying, “We are all Osamas now.”  Gee, think they are upset about that film or maybe they are reacting to Obama spiking the football on the Bin Laden killing?   My vote is on the latter; especially when you realize those attacks happened on 9/11.

 Instead of dealing with the acts of war against America, the Obama Regime wants to complain about the First Amendment.   The Obama Regime called YouTube asking them to “review” the film.   Fortunately YouTube told the Regime where to go but when does the American government start telling private publishers what they can or cannot publish or broadcast.

 If that was not bad enough, the government identified “Sam Bacile.”  The Obama Regime might as well have put a target on this back.  Sam Bacile is an alias for the man behind the film.  He is a convicted felon and is still on probation for a 2009 bank fraud conviction.   He may be a convicted felon but he is still protected by the First Amendment and certainly enjoys the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. 

 The message from the Obama Regime was quite clear.  Make an anti-Islamic film and the government will out you and make you a target. 

 The real problem is Barack Obama.  Whether you love Mitt Romney or hate him, there is no question that we must get Obama out of the White House.  If Obama has a second term, we will see Islamic violence, not just in the Middle East but we will see it here in America.  We have seen the Obama Regime’s assaults on our freedoms.  This will only get worse.

 OMG:  Obama must go.

 We are 50 days out from the election.  Obama must go. We will have other issues to fight about after the election but right now, nothing else matters.

 OMG:  Obama must go.

Obama’s priorities. – Tea Party Nation

Obama’s priorities. – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

If you are a member of the military, you must make sacrifices.   You can be deployed away from family and friends for extended periods of time.  You do things that have you run the risk of being seriously injured and possibly going into combat and being killed.

 We do not pay our military members nearly enough.  However the Obama Regime wants to send the military a message about its priorities. 

 What is the message and what does it mean for the military?

 Obama, who allegedly wants free health care for everyone, wants military members to pay more for their healthcare.  In fact, he is threatening to veto the Defense Appropriations bill unless Congress forces military members to pay more for their own healthcare. 

 That’s right.  Obama does not want our military to have the best weapons or for that matter weapons at all.  Obama does not want America to have a military.  He wants America to be a weak, defenseless nation.

 Most of our military gear dates from the Reagan military build up.  That was thirty years ago.  The USS Enterprise is on its final deployment.  It was launched when Dwight Eisenhower was still president.

 Our military budget desperately needs to be increased.  Yet what does the Obama Regime want to spend money on?

 Solyndra got money from the Obama Regime and we see how that played out.  The military could have used that money and put it to better use.

 Yesterday we found out that yet another stimulus backed green energy company is going bankrupt.  It has been granted a $400 million dollar loan but had only used about $70 million of the loan from the government.   Solyndra went belly up in 2011.  Then Beacon Power died, followed by Ener1. 

 Does anyone possibly think that the millions that were lost in these stupid ventures might have had a better use in providing good healthcare for our military members and their families?

 Given the Obama Regime’s track record of being wrong, they should not be allowed to pay for ice cream in a hot day, much less have the authority to spend any real amount of money.

 Meanwhile, Obama continues to show his contempt for the men and women who serve America.  Last year, he threatened to veto the Defense Authorization bill because it had a provision that awarded the Purple Heart to the military members wounded or killed by Islamist Hassan Nidal at Fort Hood.

 The simple truth is Obama hates everything about America and wants to see us fail.

 We need to make sure we see him fail in November.

More non-reassurance from the Obama Regime. – Tea Party Nation



More non-reassurance from the Obama Regime. – Tea Party Nation.

Do you think you are paying a lot for gas now?

 Just wait; to quote Ronald Reagan, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

 If we have cursed with a second Obama term, do you have any idea what you will be paying for a gallon of gas?

 From the Washington Examiner:

 Department of Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said that “no one knows” if gasoline prices in the United States will reach $9 per gallon, and acknowledged that the possibility is outside his control.

 “I don’t think anyone can speculate what will happen with respect to oil prices and gas prices because they are set on the global economy,” Salazar told reporters when asked if gas prices could reach $9 per gallon, as they have been in Greece. “Where it will all end, no one knows.

 He explained that “what we see happening today are the influences first of unrest in places like the Middle East and Iran, which disrupt the markets and allow the futures markets to play on some of what they see [in] the unrest around the world; and secondly the huge demand that you’ve started seeing in places like China, India and Brazil.”

 Really?  Perhaps someone should tell the Obama Regime that many of us were born in the dark, but it wasn’t last night.

 Let me take a stab at this.

 The Obama Regime is doing everything in its power to eliminate sources of domestic oil production.   Thus, we are force to import more and more of our oil.  At the same time the Obama Regime is engaged in policies that destroy the value of the dollar.  Since he has been in office the real value of our dollar has dropped by half.  If he does that again, and we already have four dollar a gallon gas, where does that put us?

 Given that it is the official policy of the Obama Regime to “crucify” oil companies, $9 a gallon gas should not surprise anyone.

 From CNS News:

 Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) took to the Senate floor today to draw attention to a video of a top EPA official saying the EPA’s “philosophy” is to “crucify” and “make examples” of oil and gas companies – just as the Romans crucified random citizens in areas they conquered to ensure obedience.

 Inhofe quoted a little-watched video from 2010 of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) official, Region VI Administrator Al Armendariz, admitting that EPA’s “general philosophy” is to “crucify” and “make examples” of oil and gas companies.

 In the video, Administrator Armendariz says:

 “I was in a meeting once and I gave an analogy to my staff about my philosophy of enforcement, and I think it was probably a little crude and maybe not appropriate for the meeting, but I’ll go ahead and tell you what I said:

 “It was kind of like how the Romans used to, you know, conquer villages in the Mediterranean.  They’d go in to a little Turkish town somewhere, they’d find the first five guys they saw and they’d crucify them.

 “Then, you know, that town was really easy to manage for the next few years.”

 “It’s a deterrent factor,” Armendariz said, explaining that the EPA is following the Romans’ philosophy for subjugating conquered villages.

 Soon after Armendariz touted the EPA’s “philosophy,” the EPA began smear campaigns against natural gas producers, Inhofe’s office noted in advance of today’s Senate speech:

 “Not long after Administrator Armendariz made these comments in 2010, EPA targeted US natural gas producers in Pennsylvania, Texas and Wyoming.

 The only crucifixion that needs to be needs to go on is what the voters to do the Obama Regime this November. 

 Of course, compared to the Obama Regime, the Oil and Gas Industry qualifies for Sainthood.
