The Energy Industry arguments

Let me just start off by saying… Make it make sense to me everyone. I am NOT against ANY resource being utilized to provide some type of energy.

But seriously everyone, you have to think about what is going and think about it.

First, what is going on currently with Ukraine and Russia is terrible. War sucks regardless. The saddening part is that there’s always money to be made when there is a war. Largely the entities that benefit from wars going on is most of the time government’s, elites and elected officials – regardless. There’s always money made to be somewhere between the lines of wars. It’s what they call “smoke and mirrors” because us regular people do not know what actually happens behind the scenes. I will just leave it at that.

Second, the always unanswered question(s)… Why are we still paying to foreign countries to get oil/fuel from them? Why are we still IMPORTING oil/fuel from other countries? Why isn’t the United States of America producing, drilling, fracking, etc. the oil domestically? Forcing people to go to only one direction and only one resource or product (basically limiting the availability of options), hmmm. How has that ever helped any country when they only have 1 product and no freedom of choice of other options?

My main image cover for this particular blog is why I’m asking:

There was detailed report and research conducted back in 2011 (possibly earlier) through 2013 from the Institute for Energy Research. A report was prepared on October 29, 2013 and provided before the Subcommittee on Energy and Power Committee on Energy and Commerce hearing on the North American Energy Infrastructure Act.

The Institute for Energy Research (IER) is a not-for-profit organization that conducts intensive research and analysis on the functions, operations, and government regulation of global energy markets. IER believes that freely-functioning energy markets provide the most efficient and effective solutions to today’s global energy and environmental challenges and, as such, are critical to the well-being of individuals and society.

The president of this non-profit organization has stated a searchable fact that was conducted over time and makes me think twice (A LOT) of why people are trying to push only 1 or 2 types of a resource to use for energy. Here’s an excerpt from organization’s president, Thomas J. Pyle:

“In the last 100 years, America’s population has tripled. Life expectancy has increased by 70 percent. The productivity of the American people, measured in terms of real per-capita Gross Domestic Product (GDP), has increased by 600 percent. At the same time, we have consumed more than 340 billion barrels of oil, almost 60 billion short tons of coal, and more than 1,090 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. These things are linked. Affordable and reliable energy is a crucial factor in making these and many other significant human, social and technological achievements possible.

Yet even with steadily increasing rates of economic and population growth, as well as increasing energy consumption, the United States today possesses greater recoverable supplies of oil, natural gas and coal than at any point in its recorded history. How can that be? Have vast new sources of hydrocarbon fuels magically materialized beneath our feet over the past 100 years? Or is it possible that, despite what you’ve read, heard and have been told, our continent has always had a lot more energy available to it than some would have us believe?

The answers lie in the data. In 1980, official estimates of proved oil reserves in the United States stood at roughly 30 billion barrels. Yet over the past 30 years, more than 77 billion barrels of oil have been produced here. In other words, over the last 30 years, the United States produced more than two and a half times the proved reserves we thought we had available in 1980. Thanks to new and continuing innovations in exploration and production technology, there’s every reason to believe that today’s estimates of reserves are only a fraction of what will be produced and delivered tomorrow—not only here in the United States, but across the entire North American continent.

Unfortunately, even as updated data show plentiful future supplies of domestic energy, driven by new technologies, a significant movement has emerged. This movement’s mission is to advance and perpetuate falsehoods and inaccuracies with respect to the volume and availability of energy resources in and under our country and continent.

The movement is coordinated, orchestrated and well-funded to create the illusion of scarcity that empowers government to deny citizens access to affordable, reliable and much-needed energy. Furthermore, using supposed scarcity as an excuse, politicians and government agencies justify increasing the power and budget of government while substituting their politically-favored energy choices for those chosen by consumers.

“If America only possesses two to three percent of the world’s oil,” they ask, “why bother to unlock additional acreage for future exploration?” If the world is running out of hydrocarbon fuels, why not insist that government spend billions of dollars to subsidize politically well-connected sources of “alternative” energy? This, they argue, is the justification for spending and mandating the use of energy supplies that otherwise could not survive in a market economy where consumers make their own energy decisions based upon availability and price.

For some, the benefits associated with advancing this agenda are financial. For others, they are ideological. Access to affordable, abundant energy is, fundamentally, a means of freedom. But for those seeking to create a crisis that provides an opportunity to direct the way we live, work and act, affordable, reliable, abundant, domestic energy is a threat. In a very real sense, the more energy we have, the less power they will have. Energy abundance ends the justification for central energy decision-making…”

So what stuck out to what Mr. Pyle has said in the above paragraphs caught my eye: “Access to affordable, abundant energy is, fundamentally, a means of freedom. But for those seeking to create a crisis that provides an opportunity to direct the way we live, work and act, affordable, reliable, abundant, domestic energy is a threat. In a very real sense, the more energy we have, the less power they will have. Energy abundance ends the justification for central energy decision-making.”

Again, referring back to my second topic of “unanswered question(s)”… Why are we still paying to foreign countries to get oil/fuel from them? Why are we still IMPORTING oil/fuel from other countries? Why isn’t the United States of America producing, drilling, fracking, etc. the oil domestically? Forcing people to go to only one direction and only one resource or product (basically limiting the availability of options), hmmm. How has that ever helped any country when they only have 1 product and no freedom of choice of other options?

Let me paint you the picture of some people out there who are out of touch with reality, who cannot understand regular folks who strive, persevere and try any means necessary to make an honest living…

Another interesting report I stumbled upon from the IER – The 100 Percent Renewable Energy Myth

On page 4 of the 100 Percent Renewable Energy Myth report PDF

Even Elon Musk said this…

Again, I say… Make it make sense to me everyone. I am NOT against ANY resource being utilized to provide some type of energy. I’m all for having an availability of options and choices for me and EVERYONE else to freely choose what we all want to use. Technology now is a WHOLE LOT different as it was before and in the past.

I will end here with some interesting news articles and opinions I’ve come across:

Venezuela could be a fill-in for Russian oil, but critics fear aiding another strongman.

Opinion – Biden’s Bizarre Oil Diplomacy

U.S. Officials Meet With Regime in Venezuela, to Discuss Oil Exports to Replace Russia’s

Yeonmi Park’s interview and story speaks volumes

I swear if the younger people want Communism because it was never “properly experienced or properly put into practice…” My goodness how about they just get a plane ticket and live in a communistic regime/country. Start from nothing in those countries, with only a few dollars or no $$ in your pockets.

And tell us then how you like it! Again don’t bring those Socialist or Communistic ideas here in the USA. We don’t need it!

Why is it that people from all over the world still want to come to USA?? Because it’s still the country that represents freedom regardless of creed, race, ethnicity, etc. We are boiling pot of everything.

Yet, however, a lot of people IN THE USA, who were born and raised here having the naivety to the rest of the world and the freedoms and things we literally TAKE FOR GRANTED is showing BIG TIME.

Her interview and story speaks VOLUMES.

What she said is true at the 6:36 minute mark.
As she mentioned attending Columbia University, our education system in the USA is now basically a propaganda – with no allowance of a debate between 2 differing opinions. Only one opinion is fact and true – all others are disregarded. That is sickening in our education system.
Looked at some others comment’s from the video – their stories speaks volumes as well.

My take on “Color, Communism and Common Sense”.

Out of curiosity I ordered the book authored by Manning Johnson, his book is: Color, Communism and Common Sense.

His book was published around the late 1950s and how I see it… is that his book is still very relevant to this day in 2021.  Manning Johnson, similar to Thomas Sowell, have lived through various decades of Marxist theories, Communistic propaganda, wars and certain revolutions.

From their backgrounds Manning Johnson and Thomas Sowell were at one point in their lives both Communist and Marxist (respectively).  However, they both realized it was not ideal and IT IS NOT the solution.

I mean what country that has been a Socialist or is a Communist country where everyone is thriving?   I feel as if they are trying to “survive” literally in those countries who are still under the socialist or communist rule. In a Communist country the rich are RICH and the poor are very poor. That’s it… there is no middle.

I’ve taken multiple images of the very relevant pages of the book that I believe are still being done to this day and age.  Communists are very methodical individuals and I cannot believe that it is becoming very apparent here in the United States. 

I left a Communist country to be able to enjoy freedom and opportunities in the United States of America… However, I’m seeing that the United States of America is going down this horrible rabbit hole because of its current “leaders”.  I do not even know if I want to call them leaders because it is very corrupt.

The following images of the pages of this book: Color, Communism and Common Sense actually speaks for itself… And I believe I do not need to add anything further about such pages.

I do have to add that when Manning Johnson states “red conspiracy”, “reds”, he’s directly referring to Communists.

Again this book was published in 1958
Very similar to today, mass media, social influence-rs and various “leaders” are blaming capitalism. Why? Seems like this is definitely ongoing for 50+ years.
10 Years being a Communist, Manning Johnson leaves this party and affiliation of Communist.
Still harping on the notion – “fighting capitalists / capitalism”
Not ironic how he mentions that, “…A Communist is not a sentimentalist. He does not grieve over the loss of life in the advancement of Communism…” Oh, how that statement rings ever so true and relevant still. Does Mao Zedong ring a bell to anyone? And currently, do not forget the Uighurs also.
Who are still calling themselves “trained Marxists” out loud and so proudly?
Items (a) – (f) – Doesn’t that sound like…? Oh right, victim mentality ring a bell?
Now what happened back last Summer 2020? Oh right, people “protesting BLM” and various businesses including minority owned businesses got vandalized, burned, trashed and looted.
Why does progressives, liberals, various politicians and “leaders” still sound the same, today, as how Manning Johnson mentioned in his book?

I shall end my blog with a couple of videos I stumbled upon via Twitter. The hilarity of it all just makes me shake my head.

So the ‘world leaders’ meet up for the conference or summit (whatever). Does this make sense as to what they just did?

Let’s relate this twitter video of Colin Kaepernick… From what Manning Johnson stated in his book, “…Obviously, this line deliberately spread by the Communists, leads to the worst kind of mischief. It strengthens and creates racial prejudices and lays the basis for sharp racial conflicts. Shirking social responsibility and blaming others may be the easy way, but it is only a short cut to Communist slavery…”

Furthermore, other excerpts from his book that closely relates to the above twitter video, “…Labeling opponents is a specialty of the reds. ‘Smear’ is a cardinal technique. Any label found in the red stockpile, you may be sure, is carefully made and selected to draw the maximum hate to the person or persons, the group or the organization to which it is attached…”

“…The use of such labels has a tendency to divide America…”
