Nancy Pelosi Issues Statement On Soaring Gas Prices

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Warning: Not for the faint of heart.

Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today on the rising gas prices across the country:

 

“Independent reports confirm that speculators are driving up the cost of oil, hurting consumers and potentially damaging the economic recovery. Wall Street profiteering, not oil shortages, is the cause of the price spike.  In fact, U.S. oil production is at its highest level since 2003, and millions of acres have been cleared for additional development.

 

“We need to take strong action to protect consumers from this speculation.  Unfortunately, Republicans have chosen to protect the interests of Wall Street speculators and oil companies instead of the interests of working Americans by obstructing the agencies with the responsibility of enforcing consumer protection laws.  They have also repeatedly opposed our efforts to end billions of dollars in outdated taxpayer subsidies for oil companies enjoying record profits.

 

“We support efforts by the Obama Administration to expand domestic energy resources, including natural gas and renewable sources like wind and solar that create jobs in America and will end our dangerous dependence on foreign energy supplies.  This can be achieved because today, the United States currently has more oil and gas rigs at work than the rest of the world combined, and imports of foreign oil have decreased.

 

“We call on the Republican leadership to act on behalf of American consumers and join our efforts to crack down on speculators who care more about their profits than the price at the pump even if these spikes harm the American consumer and our economy.”

Speculators? Such as the Federal Reserve and other central banks who have pumped $2 trillion of "liquidity" into the capital markets in the past 3 months just so Italian BTPs don't implode to fair value and so Europeans can continue living in a socialist "paradise" even as the bankers steal their gold?

Or is it the same congressional speculators who until recently had every right to front run the public on advance knowledge that the SPR would be tapped due to Democrat insistence to sacrifice America's last energy backstop only to win the election?

Or is Nancy simply pissed off that she can no longer trade ahead of any market moving news?

Whatever the reason for the gas surge, with these idiots in charge one thing is certain - the situation is about to get far, far worse.

Solyndra4eva!

The Democrats are the ONLY party that stands up for the little guy. Libertarians, republicans and other ignorant right-wing interests will almost always support the speculators and traders over average American citizens. America is starting to stand up to right-wing bullies. We are sick and tired of right-wing morons talking about “cuts to the budget” and “personal responsibility”, and we are not going to take it any longer. Speculators WILL be regulated and controlled. Greedy profiteers WILL pay their FAIR SHARE of money to the government. Libertarians have profited for too long from speculative bets on gold and oil, and now it’s time they started giving something back to the community.

The thing is, despite the blame on Wall St from the lefties on here; and the Fed bashing by the righties on here.....we all know they are both complicit in it.  People need to suspend their ideologies for five fucking minutes, wash their eyes, and see the clearer picture.

Oil potentially going up has been issue for a long time.  Part of it is Fed-induced inflation.  Part of it is demand/supply problem, for the "peak oil dilemma".  And of course, part of it is Wall Street investors (as well as London..probably moreso in London) betting futures on when Iran gets attacked and this thing spikes.

US is in constant tension with Iran, one of the world's bigger oil exporters. Iran is in constant tension with Israel, because there are religious enemies (and like leaders in 99% of the countries in the world, both are led by extremist dicktards). 

Oil going up was just an evitability.

Like everything else.

The Mayans called the end of the age.  And I think we all know what that age, and that end, is going to look like.

I like how investing in commodities is considered "profiteering," especially coming from this crooked inside-trading hyocritical bitch.  Ironically the new favorite line is about how strong domestic oil production is, they just forget to mention that is entirely thanks to their favorite punching bag George Bushie and absolutely nothing to do with their own policies.  I wonder how she proposes that we "crack down" on "speculators" - make purchasing oil futures a crime?  Hey that will REALLY help the market work efficiently!

So hey, you think, I don't want to be an "evil speculator" so I'll just get out of commodities and toss my capital into ExxonMobil stock and get a nice dividend since you can't get shit for yield out of bonds or anything other than PMs.  WOOPS!  Guess who wants to triple dividend taxes to 45%!  Way to give the retirees another winner there, Mr. President! http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204880404577225493025537660.html?mod=WSJ_hp_LEFTTopStories#articleTabs%3Darticle

I am not defending Nancy. For she is screaming about some rich scumbags as she is one too.

That said, there is truth to the oil pump up going on right now. They do it every FEB, MARCH and APRIL.

Check the charts. As said by a trader on Bloomberg. We test how high we can go before stress.

They give you a couple months of relief, then they know how high they can push it over "Summer Driving Season".

Who does it?  Well, the Koch brothers own a super tanker full of oil held offshore.

And as reported by ZH. Several banks including JPMorgan and one French who got bailout money also own one each. 

Just sayin the truth eh.

Oooh! Teh evil oil companies are in ur gas tank, suckin' ur distillates! Hey idiot - the price spike during those months is caused by a lower supply from the refineries, who are changing their production from cheaper "winter blend" to more smog-friendly "summer blend" gas. Do you know why? FEDERAL MANDATE! And as they switch over, there is a drop in supply. Never attribute to malice that which can be adaquately be attributed to stupidity.

Excellent point. Two words: NORTH DAKOTA. Because production is "captured" there prices are VASTLY cheaper...to the chagrin of "you know who." This is gonna be a game changer if the nut jobs "can't get their pipeline." Already the Obama Administration is back tracking on the "Buffet Plan" to "keep it all in the USA" saying "they'll get a pipeline deal next year." What they should be saying/doing is announcing a crash program with taxpayer majority owned Government Motors to begin mass production of a natural gas powered vehicle fleet IMMEDIATELY. This will hold the economy steady should there be an actual oil shock. "Call in the good people of the USA" (T Boone Pickens and Friends comes to mind) and go "all in on energy bounty" thus making the USA the preeminent place to invest as the rest of the planet is plunged into an "out of oil hell."

Speculators want to reduce risks. Historically, speculators engineered the conditions that would allow the change in price they bet on.

It's a theory.  It's possible.

But I'll suggest a flaw of the Russian ambassador and the Israeli soldier who wrote the article.

That flaw is that they expected that the Egyptians knew how to win a war.  No, they knew to advance so many miles on the front lines.  Well, where were the supply lines to keep the advance going?  There must have been a  reason after all to think war wasn't coming and supply lines could be that reason.

Also, the Russian ambassador in order to save his own ass in the Cold War better write something real good to keep people above him happy.

Absolute bull.  The Egyptians crossed the Suez Canal and surprised the Israeli garrison.  Israel was on the ropes and reeling when they forced Kissinger to provide all kinds of military equipment and stated that if they didn't get what they wanted they'd resort to nuclear weapons.  Israeli Phantoms were being armed with nukes and U.S. recon assets confirmed that.  There are unconfirmed stories that Jewish pilots stationed with the USAF in Europe were allowed to take their aircraft and volunteer to aid Israel.

If she had mentioned gun control and free health care for all Mexican immigrants she would have hit all her talking points, but there is nothing wrong with a little room to improve.

I can't think of a single politician I would rather see get shot in the face... really.  

What a moron.  San Francisco should fall into the sea just for keeping this lying hypocrite in office.

Oh, and BTW, recently disclosed Canadian tax documents show that US NGOs (all the same Dem support structures) donated heavily to BOTH environmental groups AND the Canadian government to stop the oil sands pipeline... Really Nan, you support domestic energy sources do you?  STFU.

Whachoo talkin' bout, Willis? First, the current Canadian government is Conservative and supports both the Keystone XL and the Northern Gateway pipelines. Second, only indviduals are allowed to donate funds to federal political parties - no corporations, no unions, no Sierra Clubs. Third, no foreign indviduals are allowed to donate to Canadian federal political parties.

Other than that, your post has the ring of truth, young Marklar.

Hold on... I will dig up the article I caught on this.  Stand by.

 

Edit: Link as promised. No $ to the pols directly -- only to environmental groups to help influence the pols.  Also direct 'donations' to Canadian Gov't projects in the form of grants, etc... of course, no strings attached :)  All from US think tanks and foundations.  Interesting, a few to the Crown Corporation.  Google it.

Yep, and that US and other foreign interference has been noticed and commented on. L'il Stevie Harper, current PM, said (approx.) "There are some in the US who want to keep Canada as a giant northern national park, and that's just not in Canada's interests". The current Cdn government is interested in expanding oil, gas, and uranium production in Canada, and they don't pay anything but lip service to the anti-energy lobby.

And, BTW, the CBC is a "public" broadcaster, broadly left-wing, who hate the ruling Conservatives. That's why they conflate money donated to Crown corporations (there's more than one) to fund research, conferences, etc., with money donated to lobby groups trying to influence policy. It's the difference between donating to the Red Cross or the Sally Ann, and a Super PAC, which the tiny minds at the Ceeb are incapable of noticing.

You've stumbled across the wrong website - the commie MSM site is down the road to the left.

Bigots, there might be some. But what people here "hate" is crooks in government that steal their money thru taxes and then award it to their friends in companies like Solyndra, or CIG (crooks in government) who outlaw insider trading but exempt themselves from such laws, or CIG who lie to us straight in the face about the laws they are passing that are detrimental to the citizens and the country but are personally benefical to themselves.

HATE - doesn't even begin to describe how I feel about the CIGs.

So if this site bothers you so much, take your raggedy ass, no-brain-cells-left, down the road and take the 1st exit left. Your moronic ramblings will be much appreciated there.

"Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe"($6-$8/gal) - Barry O'Dumbo's Energy Secretary, Steven Chu

And...

"So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can," Obama said. "It's just that it will bankrupt them because they're going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that's being emitted."
O'Barry, San Francisco Chronicle in a Jan. 17 interview

Things are progressing according to plan quite nicely for them.

Dateline 2/8/2012

"Ohio based FirstEnergy Corporation announces it will close three coal fired power plants in West Virginia by this fall.   The closings come directly from the impact of new federal EPA regulations. 

The plants to close are Albright Power Station, Willow Island Power Station, and the Rivesville Power Station.  The company says 105 employees will be directly impacted."

Mmmm....Hg!

 

Mercury is a powerful neurotoxin in even very small amounts and is known to accumulate in sediment and in fish and other wildlife. The new legal level of 1.3 parts per trillion is an outgrowth of a more than decade-old goal set by Great Lakes states in 1995.

"And we think that it's past time to actually require industry to comply with those standards," said Ellen Mee of the Ohio Environmental Council, one of several environmental groups concerned about the EPA's practice of granting the allowances to keep discharging mercury at the old levels. "Otherwise, we have rendered water quality standards meaningless."

But FirstEnergy officials argue that they're already as low as they can go. One official said it would cost at least $10 million to install equipment to reduce mercury releases from their current average of 2.3 to 2.9 parts per trillion.

So, the coal plants in question are putting out significantly less mercury than those little enviro-friendly curly light bulbs everyone is being sold as "green" to be then thrown away and be broken in the garbage trucks.

Five milligrams per bulb of mercury, pollutes six thousand gallons of water per bulb, times however many of these toxic time bombs have been sold.

Outstanding work there EPA-Energy Dept.-GE.
