Enemies, domestic

Wait, whut?!?

SINGAPORE — The United States imported a rare cargo of 1.033 million barrels of Iranian crude in March despite sanctions on Iran’s energy sector, data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration showed.

The cargo is only the second oil import by the United States from Iran since late 1991, data on EIA’s website showed.

Let’s cut to Jim Hoft for a perspective-enhancing review.

You cannot lead a country when you hate its people so much that you would rather import oil from a wicked terrorist regime than allow American workers to produce that same product.

Joe Biden’s first action as president was to shut down construction of the Keystone Pipeline and eliminating an estimated.52,100 American jobs in the process.

Canceling the Keystone Pipeline costs over 11,000 construction jobs and 42,100 jobs throughout the US during the construction process according to the US State Department.

Then in May Joe Biden and his handlers waved  American economic sanctions on Russia in order to streamline construction on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline to Germany.

And then, this happened.

The Biden Administration will suspend all oil and gas contracts in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge amid rising gas prices.

The national average price of gas per gallon in the US is $3.045 as of Tuesday, June 1.

Gas prices have spiked in Southern California to $6 per gallon.

Joe Biden is now freezing all oil and gas contracts in Alaska’s Arctic Refuge after canceling the Keystone X pipeline.

Recall, in a last minute push, the Trump Administration in late 2020 moved to auction off drilling rights in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

The Enviro-Nazi left went berserk over Trump’s push to open up drilling in the region and now Biden is freezing all leases.

Hey, remember back when we were energy-independent there for a brief spell, with prices at the pump edging down towards the two-bucks-a-gallon range, even lower? Good times, good times. Now—after killing Keystone and throwing tens of thousands out of work, just before a servile polishing of the Russian knob for their OWN pipeline project—the people making the Biden puppet’s lips move have us illegally importing oil from a fanatical Mooselimb enemy. Not just any old Mooselimb enemy, either; the “Death To America!” bunch, no less.

Unbelievable, unacceptable, intolerable. I’m speechless, people. If you think these loathsome pricks aren’t actively trying to harm the country, tell me what they’d be doing differently if they were?

Termites.  They don’t care if they destroy – it’s a feature.

Ironbear

It’s why they’re trying frantically right now to revive the shambling zombie of “Right Wing Militias” from Clinton’s early ’90s and make “Right-wing White Supremacist Terrorism” the defining bugaboo of the early ’20s, Mike –

They’re aware that a large majority of us have finally twigged to the reality that the Enemies Domestic are the only ones that matter.

This isn’t the 80s. No one in CONUS is really worried about the Kremlin. No one really believes that Putin is out to invade or destroy the U.S..

No one really believes that China is going to invade the U.S. – not with China’s inability to project force much beyond its own borders, and the Lotus Kingdom’s eight thousand year history of being an inward looking Empire.

The only people visibly out to destroy America and Americans on the world stage are our own leaders and Elites, and they advertise that fact every time they open their mouths or sponsor/implement some element of public policy – Democrats and Republicans alike.

Us recognizing them as the only threat that really matters is the only threat they really fear.

Perfectly stated Ironbear!

Ironbear

Almost. I really should have said, “no one with any sense”, but these days, that narrows the field down to the point of nonexistence. 🙂

Barry

Heh, well, if you have sense you understood it, and if you don’t you will not anyway.

I do love you pro writers. You, Mike, Kenny, Haz, and Bill Q always seem to get the wording pretty darn close to perfect.

Ironbear

Wait. Kenny and Haz are pro writers? Cool!

Do you have a link to any of their books?

Barry

If you write well, you’re a pro.

Ironbear

*snicker* If you get paid for it, you’re a Pro. I’ve gotten paid before, so I qualify, technically. (I didn’t get paid much, but… )

If you write well consistently and work at getting better, you have Professionalism, which you can have without being a professional.

HazHap

Well, I did get paid for technical writing at several points in my career. Not sure if that counts quite like novels or such, but it was paid work.

Barry

I’ve done quite a bit of technical writing. I do that well.
The difference is, I don’t really like to write, which is a nice way of saying I hate writing.

Just about my entire elementary school writing experience was done with pus from the poison ivy running down my fingers. I nearly always had poison ivy given that 1) I’m highly allergic to it, and 2) I didn’t care, nothing was going to keep me from running wild in the woods.

I can tell good writers, paid or not, and I appreciate them. All mentioned above highly qualify.

HazHap

Youthful adventures with poison ivy — bringing back some memories here, Barry. Not entirely good memories, either.

On technnical writing, I much preferred writing software code to writing about software code. But somebody had to do it and I was the only member of a 20+ person team who spoke English as a native language. Just one of the realities of the software business these days, sadly.

Barry

Heh, it takes more time to explain the code well than to write the code well IMO. I have always documented my code pretty well even though I expect to be the only one that really understands it. Writing about the code is another tier entirely, something I really don’t do. My technical writing has been about machine process for people that have no idea what the machinery they own really does or how it does it. I stopped doing that 10-15 years ago as beating my head against a wall was more fun and productive 🙂

Poison Ivy – I’ve had it everywhere. I’ve been in the hospital because I had it everywhere at the same time. That after seeing it growing in a solid field under the natural vine swing hanging from the big oak tree limb. Kid, swing, poison ivy. Predictable result.

Barry

Welcome, just speaking the truth. Some of you have a real gift.

kennycan

I got paid for telling stories. About markets…

Actually, no I wasn’t in customer research…

I wouldn’t consider myself a pro at all. I just get lucky sometimes. My luck never paid off… for writing.

Now, as for my wife, well that’s enough lucky for me…

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards." – Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." — Daniel Webster

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” – Frank Zappa

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.” - John Adams

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged." - GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free." - Donald Surber

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid." — Dwight D. Eisenhower
