Gas Price Hypocrisy

Click directly on the image below to enlarge it:


Hat tip to Conservative Hideout 2.0 for the video and the larger graphic below the fold:





















Nearly every television news-broadcast of the mainstream media has on the screen Obama-shilling anchors who are actually smiling when they speak of the rising cost of gasoline! As the above video points out, when gas prices rose under the Bush administration, these same brainless wonders wore the mask of grief, then proceeded to blame Bush.

What glaring and astounding hypocrisy!

The oligarchs and those shilling for them — all with deep pockets — have zero empathy for those who are suffering in this ailing economy.

Besides, according to Ask Heritage:
With the national average of gas prices hitting $3.65 a gallon, nearing $6 in some parts of the country, and poised to head even higher, America’s families are wondering when the bleeding at the pump will stop. But for Secretary of Energy Stephen Chu, those steep prices aren’t even a concern. In fact, he says his goal is not to get the price of gasoline to go down.

Chu delivered those stunning remarks in testimony before Congress [in February 2012]....
Clearly, the realities of the repercussions of rising energy costs are being shoved under the rug and have fallen prey to another agenda.

Hooper's words in Jaws come to mind:
...You are going to ignore this particular problem until it swims up and BITES YOU ON THE ASS!

  1. Hi AOW.

    It gets even better.

    "Sanctions that Bite?" India raised last month the amount of crude oil imported from Iran by 53 percent.Price of gas in India is now around $ 5/Gallon, soon it will be cheaper......Obamanomics!

    It certainly looks like hypocrisy, AOW, but I'm not sure it really is. I think the goal of "The Oligarchs" (a shadowy, largely unaccountable phenomenon in which people like Beamish, who worship "facts" and therefore imagine themselves purely rational, don't want to believe) the goal of The Oligarchs is to BRING US DOWN -- to REDUCE US to HELPLESS PENURY, so they can rush in and "save" us thereby making us their SLAVES.

    Oh yes! I do believe that with all my heart. If there were not evil, profoundly selfish, greedy, power-mad men and women in unique positions of influence in effect "pulling strings" behind the scenes, why ELSE would things have developed along the dismal lines they have.

    "THe People," while too easily seduced by the insolence of demagogues into believing false promises of a freer, easier life in exchange for surrendering their liberty, are NOT bad at heart.

    If "The People" had remained unmolested by aggressively evil intellectual charlatans, and had been left more to their own devices, they would have made much better decisions for themselves.

    It has been the promise of EASE and COMFORT in exchange for the SURRENDER of FREEDOM that is proving to be our undoing.

    So the gas prices, themselves, don't matter all that much. It's the deliberate INTENT behind the manipulation that made this occur -- and the false idea that it is the result of hostile "foreign" powers, when in fact it is our OWN elected leaders and Captains of Industry -- in CONJUNCTION with FOREIGN POWERS -- who are the true Architects of Evil.

    YUP! It's all the result of a longstanding PLOT.

    And we'll be done in by the fools who think themselves wise by making light of it while contemptuously telling us to go put on a tin foil hat.

    We'll never be able to combat our enemies until we recognize who they really are.

  4. The economy will never recover at this rate.And I believe that is part of the progressive agenda. One of the comments here (Blogginator) made me think of the free cell phones the gov is offering "the poor". I guess gas cards will be next. With all of the freebies some get, "the poor" will surpass the middle class in disposable income and we are paying for it.

  6. Back on topic...

    As I tell my liberal / leftist friends complaining about the gas prices - when Obama was merely a unvetted Senator running for President, he several times claimed it was necessary to raise gas prices to make alternative / "green" energy sources more attractive - and dumbasses voted for him anyway.

    If you voted for Obama and you're complaining about gas prices, put some sails and some solar panels on your car and STFU.

  7. The problem does go well beyond the price of gasoline.

    Bloviating Zeppelin:


    - No coal (dirty, comes from the ground)
    - No oil (see above)
    - No nuclear (see Japan)
    - No windborne (kills birds)
    - No water-powered (means more dams and reservoirs)
    - No geothermal (not enough, too unstable)
    - No solar power (eats too much arable land, requires too much water for cleaning)

    I also read that Treasury Secretary Geithner said something about the rich needing to pay more for the privilege of living here in America.

  11. "Ramen noodles are on me!"

    But, dear Brooke, at the rate things are going, very soon you may not be able to afford even those.

    We ARE being ground down by forces we cannot know who are totally unaccountable to us, because they OWN our politicians -- and our judges too most likely.

    It is not "OBAMA" who is doing this to us, it is the PUPPETEERS who've designed and groomed him to do their biding. WE did not put Obama in power. THEY did.

    Haven't the Republican Primary Follies given a pretty clear indication that MITT ROMNEY is the CHOSEN ONE this time around? Mot people do NOT want Mitt Romney, but we're going to GET him, because "THEY" want it that way.

    Romney -- just like the Clinton, the Bushes and Obama -- are PART of The Oligarchy that's working ceaselessly to enslave us.

    Party politics have no meaning anymore. It's all a charade. It's been that way since before we were born.

    "We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years.

    "It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government.

    "The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries."

    And 17 years later, America elected Barack Hussein Obama.

  16. Only lefties won't see the hypocrisy in the media and that democrats.

    Unfortunately for us, liberals want the price of just about everything to go up, now they may not agree with me or even believe it's happening, but that's the reality, when liberal are running things, the price of everything mostly goes upwards.

    Down here in Australia it's a similar story, the current gaggle of lefties came into power on a platform of cost-of-living problems like the price of groceries, gas etc. Since they came into power, they wasted a lot of our money trying to fiddle with the market but failed completely.

    Now the prices of just about everything is higher and on top of it our budget surplus is gone and we're in debt.

    Fortunately for leftie politicians, the media is also in favor of this, so just like in America, few will even mention that things are worse now than before.

  17. Thanks, AOW. I think we largely see eye to eye -- not that it will help change things for the better. I'm afraid the dye was cast and the inner workings of the Doomsday Machine were set in motion long ago.

    Odd to come to the realization after having lived a pretty long, rich, full and satisfying life -- though certainly not the one I planned -- that the deck was stacked against us long before we were born.

    The evil certainly can't be fought when most are either blissfully unaware -- or willfully blind -- to circumstances under which we are truly living.

    On topic: this is scary, but not surprising. If Obama wants a one-world government, everyone needs to be on an even plane, so America needs to be knocked down a few pegs. Plus the beaten-horse-won't-kick philosophy. Though if the media are able to sell this I'll be amazed and disgusted.

  26. PART ONE

    Good morning, WildStar,

    A good place to start looking for "proof" of my assertions would be an article by Linda Kimball published several years ago at American Thinker called Cultural Marxism.

    However, it's very difficult to find concrete proof, because

    A) those who fear, dislike or disapprove of the idea that plans to central political and economic power to the advantage of a few elites are determined to vilify, dismiss and discredit all the information as coming from "the lunatic fringe."

    B) it's like the existence of God -- something no one has ever been able to prove using material logic -- but even so the belief in His existence remains vital to the well-being of countless millions.

    C) If you type New World Order into Google, myriad items come up -- many of them derogatory, and dismissive -- many of them a little too wild-eyed for my taste -- and some that are dignified and responsible. You'll have to sort it out for yourself.

    Suffice it to say that entrance into the world of

    1. The Industrial Revolution

    2. The Labor Movement

    3. The writings of Hegel and Marx, who pirated Hegel and perverted his intent.

    4. The Emergence of the Fabian Society in Britain

    5. The Progressive Movement in the United States

    6. The founding of the ACLU by Roger Baldwin conceived to protect the interests of Communists

    7. The writings of Antonio Gramsci

    8. The emergence of The Frankfurt School who stole most of their ideas from Gramsci, and made them "go viral."

    9. The introduction of the Income Tax

    10. The introduction of the Federal Reserve

    11. The concept of The League of Nations -- i.e. the beginnings of International Law and Government (loss of sovereignty for every nation, and the establishment of Central Command and Control)

    12. The phenomenon known as International Banking and Finance

    13. The New Deal

    14. The stranglehold we put on ourselves by acceding to the internationalist "peacenik" notions put forth at Nuremburg -- the place where the UN -- a creature of the left -- was born

    15. The emergence of gigantic International Corporations

    (CONTINUED)

    ReplyDelete
  27. PART TWO:

    All these things -- and others I failed to mention -- indicate the existence of powerful individuals, who've managed to jockey themselves into key position of influence, who are bound and determined to change the world to suit THEIR vision.

    Their ideas of establishing a NEW WORLD ORDER have always been and remain contrary to the ideals of governance our Founding Fathers bequeathed to us. The ambitions of these people -- whom I call "The Oligarchs" as term of convenience -- are bitterly opposed and fiercely hostile to the ideals and principles that enabled us to become a great nation.

    If you start digging into all of that -- and are smart enough to see its hideous ramifications -- you'll begin to understand what I've been driving at.

    It AIN'T fiction, that's for sure, but it's so monstrous and incongruous to what-I-would-have-to-call The Average Mind -- i.e. those with little imagination, less insight, and little or no capacity to put isolated facts together to form a coherent pattern or draw logical inferences from the disparate elements that make up the whole of modern Civilization --. Such people may "know" a great deal, but miss the ESSENCE of it -- what it means -- and how it may apply to our daily lives. That old bit about not being able to see the forest for the trees again.

    Just FYI....Wildstar is one of my homeschool students.

    What a gem she is! I would go so far as to say that she is a genius (with some quirks, as most geniuses exhibit). I am privileged to be her teacher! I don't say that about all my students, believe me.

    I've watched her progress in the subjects I teach with something approaching awe. Sure, we've had some bad moments. But that's often the price of working with someone like Wildstar -- not to mention my own quirks.

    Wildstar's astuteness in politics is "genetically inprinted." About politics, she has insights and knowledge way beyond her chronological age.

  29. Hi, AOW,

    I could see there was something special about WildStar.

    I had no idea whether I was talking to a he or a she -- and when it comes to cerebral concepts it doesn't matter on way or the other.

    I appreciate expressions of CURIOSITY as much as I dislike outright expressions of dismissal, derison and condemnation.

    I don't pretend to be an authority on ANYTHING, but I rarely go off "half-cocked." I've read a fair amount, and usually have pretty strong reasons for the opinions I hold. Also, I long ago realized that Einstein was probably right when he asserted that "Imagination is more important than knowledge."

    We can easily memorize 2+2 = 4 and accept it as "fact," but to have understood WHY 2+2 = 4 is something quite different.

    Facts are only as good as our understanding of what they may imply, and later the uses to which we put them. Left to itself, a fact is a dead thing -- dead in the sense a whole library full of unread books is dead.

    I look forward to hearing more from WildStar.

  39. What do you think of the push toward a global minimum tax?

    As proposed by the Obama administration, it's an effort to collect more revenue from multinational corporations making money outside the US for the US Treasury.

    It's an effort to tax Americans abroad for the purpose of raising revenues for the US government, not some "one world government."

    As for the proposal itself, I think it will simply drive businesses out of the United States faster than other taxes already do and have.

    I've been doing a bit of reading on the global minimum tax and agree with your assessment as far as it goes.

    However, I do note that this administration has a penchant for dishing out money to other countries. I think that foreign aid is a drop in the budget's bucket. But what it actually "BUYS" is often contrary to American interests.

    My patent answer is "Saddam Hussein didn't fear UN inpectors. Why should we?" ;)

    Seriously though, it's a statement of agenda, and calls for brainstorming to implement its intents. In layman's terms, noise. A Greenie wishlist, not a binding treaty itself.

    A very good reason to be mindful of who controls the US Senate where treaties are ratified, but globally among UN member states I don't see this ever getting past the waste of office stationery stage.

    Well, I think that there have been some local impact here due to Agenda 21 (overt or covert, I don't know). Forget getting the correct amount of money when one sells one's property for development. The greenie police are involved like you wouldn't believe.

    From a recent edition of the WaPo:

    When Pohanka Automotive Group decided to build a new car dealership in Chantilly, the company agreed to dozens of environmentally friendly features that would make its building one of the greenest around.

    The list included clean, energy-saving touches such as a reflective roof, bike racks, a shower for cyclists, motion-sensor faucets, curbs on light pollution, using recycled water in its car wash, and a service shop open seven days a week to cut peak-hour traffic. To top it off, the company promised to build a 117-foot-tall wind turbine to generate electricity.

    Not good enough, Fairfax County planners said. The Department of Planning and Zoning recommended denial of the land-use application because Pohanka refused to submit to a national process for certifying green buildings.

    The Planning Commission endorsed Pohanka’s plans anyway, and county staff eventually agreed to support the application after Pohanka agreed to achieve verifiable energy savings. Both the staff and the Planning Commission play advisory roles, but their opinions have significant influence with the Board of Supervisors, which will consider Pohanka’s application on March 20....
