Falling Gas Prices, Perfect Storm

During the Bush administration, when gas prices were climbing above $3 a gallon, the Democrat leadership was accusing “two oil men in The White House” for gouging the American people.  And, any suggestion that supply and demand was at work brought out the  economic deniers.

Now that gasoline prices at the pump are falling, where is the media giving credit to President Obama? If the president can increase the gas prices, he can also decrease them.

To be sure, gas prices are falling. The answer is, the president does not want gas prices to fall. That is why the administration is not out there taking credit for it. It could, however, take the blame for it. Watch for this president to somehow support OPEC to get prices back up.

The drop has been driven by a boom in shale production in the United States as well as weakness in some major world economies, causing supply to outpace demand.

Include the United States as one of those “major world economies causing supply to outpace demand.” Demand weakens when you stop driving to work, or take fewer trips in your car, because you do not have a job to drive to.

How Russia Views Ferguson

Obviously taking the line of the race hustlers. Besides, undermining the country, creating crisis, and fundamentally changing America is Obama’s goal. The burning and looting going on now are on the hands of President Barack Obama and AG Eric Holder.

MOSCOW (AP) — The violent protests in Ferguson, Missouri, reflect simmering U.S. tensions over racial discrimination that could undermine the country’s stability, a senior Russian diplomat said Tuesday.

Senator Landrieu holds a news conference with fellow committee member Senator Manchin on Keystone XL pipeline in Washington

Keystone XL Show In Louisiana

In the news, and not in the news, comes the media’s version of Senator Mary Landrieu’s (D-LA) push in Washington to advance the Keystone XL pipeline project. A project that has met all the required tests and gone through all the hoops put before it by the Obama administration. Except for getting the president to sign off on it.

Legislation to approve the controversial Keystone XL oil pipeline began racing through the U.S. Congress on Wednesday as Democrats and Republicans appeared to be coming together in a challenge of President Barack Obama’s oversight of the project.

What is NOT in the news about this move is why now? “Why now” is, Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) is facing a runoff election for her seat on Dec. 6, and is in danger of losing it to Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA). In response to Landrieu’s action, Cassidy proposed an almost identical bill in the House. The media’s sleight-of-hand is their interpretation, that the two houses of congress are now “working together,” in the aftermath of the mid-terms where Democrats took another pounding.

The timing has nothing to do with congress working together on this subject. There is, and has always been, bi-partisan support for the XL-pipeline. The people want energy independence. Big Labor wants the jobs that it would create. But all that support is not enough for the president to face down the environmentalist lobby that is against it. Landrieu’s move now is just to try and save her job. Her motivation is just too transparent for the media to notice. They wouldn’t be providing the needed cover for Landrieu if they did.

America, Arizona Lose Another One

If the political pundits want to pin the recent wave of dissatisfaction with the Democrat party to an issue, failing to keep illegals out is one of them. The problem has gotten so bad that now, a federal judge has changed the meaning of the word immigration to include trespassing. If you illegally cross the border, you are trespassing. You are not immigrating. There are laws that regulate immigration, and illegally crossing the border isn’t one of them. Well, until now apparently.

A ruling Friday that struck down the state’s 2005 immigrant smuggling law marks the latest in a string of restrictions placed by the courts on Arizona’s effort to get local police to take action on illegal immigration. The smuggling law, like similar state statutes, was tossed because a judge concluded it conflicted with the federal government’s immigration powers.

Jonathan Paton, a former Republican lawmaker from Tucson who was one of the smuggling law’s top sponsors, said “It basically shows this administration has no intention to enforce its own laws or let the state enforce its laws.”

The media (and others) have already begun to frame President Obama’s pick, Loretta Lynch, to replace Eric Holder as an outsider to Washington.

It’s unusual for Obama to pick someone he doesn’t know well for such a sensitive administration post. But at a time when Obama is under political fire, Lynch’s distance from the president could be an asset in the confirmation process.

She has a proven record of going after the bad guys. That’s good. The first test of the Republican majority will be evident in her confirmation process. To draw from Ms. Lynch whether she sees a difference between trespassing and immigration. It is obvious that the administration doesn’t see a difference. Lawmakers need to vet whether she sees Arizona as the bad guys for protecting its border and citizens, or as victims of an administration’s failure to enforce the law. Any sympathy for the ‘bad guys’ concept should, but won’t, be a disqualifier. The 2016 elections will have to fix that. And I’m not just talking about Democrats.

Weather Channel Morning Show Bests CNN, MSNBC

For the week of 10/6/2014, Al Roker’s morning show on the Weather Channel, had higher ratings than CNN and MSNBC.

‘Morning Joe’ has been shedding viewers for about a year. ‘New Day’ is shaping up to be one of television’s all-time titanic disasters. In other words, it’s not that Al Roker’s numbers are so high, it’s that CNN’s and MSNBC’s numbers are so low.

Overall, this is another sign of the slow-motion fall of left-wing cable news network. For its part, MSNBC is nothing more than left-wing talk radio with pictures.

Right-on analogy . Two left-wing talkers you can see on MSNBC are Ed Shultz and Mike Papantonio. There’s plenty of company at the bottom of the barrel.

Speaking of the bottom of the barrel. Here’s a left-wing talker you’ve probably never heard of, unless you venture into Mike Papantonio’s  Ring of Fire website. They’re really two peas in a pod. His name is Mike Malloy. Here’s a sample of his work.

Communist Environmentalist News

According to the United Nations (aka Useless Nations), the end is near, it’s our fault, and we’re all going to die. Well, only one thing there is certain.

From the AP:

Climate change is happening, it’s almost entirely man’s fault and limiting its impacts may require reducing greenhouse gas emissions to zero this century, the U.N.’s panel on climate science said Sunday.

Here’s the plan.

  1. Everyone who has anything to do with the United Nations and the IPCC must not exhale for the next 24 hours.
  2. Continue to monitor the weather and take up the matter again in 2214.

Barack Obama And Mitt Romney Participate In Second Presidential Debate

CNN Off Of Dish Network

Candy Crowley, Anderson Cooper, and other CNN faces are not available now to 14 million Dish Network customers thanks to a carriage dispute.

“Thank You” carriage dispute!  What this means to CNN is that their cable ratings are (like MSNBC) down to friends and relatives. What this means to me is I’ll have to find another network “cold shower” to look at now that Candy Crowley isn’t available.

What Delusion Looks Like, Ed Shultz, Ring of Fire

Ed Shultz: “The radio stations liberals had as a breeding ground are now home to the conservative talkers trying to harvest a dollar in fast falling format.”

Fast falling format? Ed Shultz must be thinking about Air America Radio. Conservative talkers, according to Sergeant Shultz, are “occupiers.” And, they don’t debate the issues, they “vilify thoughts.”

More of Eddie’s delusion . . .

The public has figured out these occupiers in front of the microphone do not entertain. They don’t do news. They
only vilify thoughts opposite of their own.

Poor Eddie, still making excuses why liberal talk radio has failed in the talk-radio marketplace.

F Whitey, Let’s Riot

All the information that has been leaking from the Grand Jury investigation concerning Michael Brown’s death seems to be pointing to no indictment. That, ferguson_race_logicunder the circumstances, Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson acted properly.

The odds that the Jesse Sharpton’s and other race baiters of the world will accept that, if that’s what the decision turns out to be, are slim. There have already been threats of “retaliation” if Wilson is not put on trial. And therein lies the problem with race relations in this country. There’s no leadership from this “post-racial” administration calling for calm, reason, and a primer on law and order, and there should be. Before things get further out of control.

Women Feeling “Unsafe” Under Obama Government

One of the most unreported (maybe because no one saw it, it was on MSNBC) news nuggets this week is about the so-called War on Women. The phrase itself tina_brownhas pre-conceived notions on what that means. The irony is, women care more for their safety than any phony meme Democrats can create to cast them as protectors of women. Or to put it another way, they are not as mindless and “on board” as Obama thinks they are.

In exploring the president’s sinking poll numbers among women, the folks on Morning Joe asked Tina Brown, the Dione of liberal feminists, what it means and why it is? Her response blows the War on Women meme out of the water. She also has come to realize the difference between what Obama says and what he does. The reality is, reality is catching up to President Obama, and women are not happy with him any more. Her response . . .

“I think they’re feeling unsafe,” Brown surmised of female voters. “They feel unsafe, economically; they’re feeling unsafe with regard to ISIS; they’re feeling unsafe about Ebola. What they’re feeling unsafe about is the government response to different crises.”

(Brown also suggested that the president’s own persona makes women voters like him less.)

“I think they’re beginning to feel a bit that Obama’s like that guy in the corner office who’s too cool for school,” she said. “[He] calls a meeting, says this has to change, doesn’t put anything in place to make sure it does change, then it goes wrong and he’s blaming everybody.”

Where the president is concerned, welcome to Realville Tina.

Sarah Palin weighed in on what Tina Brown said when asked by Sean Hannity. She said fellow females aligned with the flawed ideology of leftist feminism are to blame for many of the issues her gender currently faces. That these feminists “support liberal men who have kept women, unfortunately, embracing this lie that they should be dependent upon government.” And “fake feminists” support Obama, “whose failed policies have kept them dependent on a failed government”, while ridiculing conservative principles designed to contribute to the success of all Americans.
