In the Pipeline: 7/2/13

An entire continent full of largely undernourished people plagued by disease, corrupt government, and some of the worst living conditions in the world, and our President sees it as a great opportunity to keep peddling snake oil and other fairy tales, rather than affordable, reliable energy that Africans need. Breitbart (6/30/13) reports: “President Barack Obama unveiled his “Power Africa” program on Sunday that will spent $7 billion in U.S. taxpayer money to fund a sub-Saharan Africa electricity program that will also develop geothermal, hydro, wind, and solar power. The International Energy Agency says achieving universal electricity access to sub-Saharan Africa by 2030 would require $300 billion.”

Next proposed rule, we are going to give away a gun. Washington Free Beacon (7/1/13) reports: “A top Republican senator accused an environmental group of “bribing” supporters into commenting on a federal environmental study by offering them a chance to win a free fishing trip. The group, Trout Unlimited, encouraged visitors to its website to comment on a proposed Environmental Protection Agency draft environmental assessment of the impacts of a proposed Alaska copper and gold mine on a nearby watershed. Commenters who also told a friend to comment on the draft were automatically entered into a drawing to win a free fishing trip at the Bristol Bay, a nearby salmon fishery.”

They wanted to make sure he was ‘looking environmentally friendly’. So they bought him a car with some of your money that uses a bunch of rare earth minerals that is powered by coal. IEEE Spectrum (6/30/13) reports: “Last summer, California highway police pulled over pop star Justin Bieber as he sped through Los Angeles in an attempt to shake the paparazzi. He was driving a hybrid electric car—not just any hybrid, mind you, but a chrome-plated Fisker Karma, a US $100 000 plug-in hybrid sports sedan he’d received as an 18th-birthday gift from his manager, Scooter Braun, and fellow singer Usher. During an on-camera surprise presentation, Braun remarked, ‘We wanted to make sure, since you love cars, that when you are on the road you are always looking environmentally friendly, and we decided to get you a car that would make you stand out a little bit.’ Mission accomplished. Bieber joins a growing list of celebrities, environmentalists, and politicians who are leveraging electric cars into green credentials.”

How unusual is this really? I mean, he has appointed people to the Department of Energy who are opposed to energy, people to the Department of Labor who don’t work, people to the Department of Health and Human Services who oppose both health and humans. Why should the Native Americans be any different? Censored News(6/26/13) reports: “President Obama created a council of non-Indian bureaucrats and deceptively named it the ‘White House Council on Native American Affairs’ on Wednesday, fooling many into believing that it was actually a council of Native Americans In an act of typical US paternalism and inappropriate irony, the US Secretary of Interior was placed as the chair of the new council to honor Native American treaties, resources and rights. The non-Indian, British born Secretary of Interior Sally Jewell worked previously for Mobil oil in Oklahoma and the banking industry.”

Blocking our largest energy reserves? Not if Dan Kish can stop it.
