Obama Working Extra Hard To Protect Saudi Oil

ScreenHunter_13 Jul. 30 21.17

By blocking Keystone and other domestic oil, he is just being a nice guy and helping out his Saudi buddies. Their oil doesn’t produce evil American CO2 when it is burned.

The editor of a Saudi Arabian social website has been sentenced to seven years in prison and 600 lashes for founding an Internet forum that violates Islamic values and propagates liberal thought, Saudi media reported on Tuesday.

Raif Badawi, who started the ‘Free Saudi Liberals’ website to discuss the role of religion in Saudi Arabia, has been held since June 2012 on charges of cyber crime and disobeying his father – a crime in the conservative kingdom and top U.S. ally.

    Meant to post here…..
    Progressivism leads inevitably to utter irrationality and eventually political, as well as moral, chaos.

    Steven OT but have you ever notice the character change on this plot after Al Gore made his movie … coincidence?? Likely another example of diddling the data IMHO.

      Nik, I’ve seen some of your comments now and again over at phys.org. Good job. I’m planning to join physorg myself at some point so I can comment also. I know, it shouldn’t be that difficult to join, but I just haven’t done it yet. I didn’t know that physorg was owned by, what is it, a green energy company on the subsidy dole? Most of their articles are good, but I had noticed a disturbing amount of climate propaganda articles. So physorg is pretty popular, right? So I encourage anyone here actually to join and help fight the scourge of climate propaganda dressed in the guise of “science” articles. It would be a huge help for the cause!

        Phys.org background, including bios of their editors:

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phys.Org

        There’s also a Wikipedia entry on them. I think some greenie firm bought them. There is some indication that they rely on banner ad revenue and that comment
        volume and “ratings” may control their story order.

        I’ve been keeping grad student hours working designing frustratingly elegant ways to fabricate and assemble jewelry, and Phys.org is just another blog for me to use for periodic breaks from the grind. They don’t allow activist censoring of skeptics like so many sites I’ve used, such as UK newspapers. Their standard article format is insultingly passive-aggressive since it takes so long to figure out what the real point of each study really is amongst paragraphs of retarded verbiage, and things like investor pumping of the 3D printing industry results in mindlessly uncritical PR release recycling.

        There is a real meltdown going on there with the worst of SkepticalScience.com’s activists now issuing regular death threats. Their e-mail address is feedback@phys.org.

        Only one editor sticks out as being not a legitimate nerd but a postmodern activist:

        “Mary Anne Simpson – contributing author
        Mary Anne has an undergraduate degree from the University of California, Irvine in social ecology with an emphasis in multi-cultural human development, legal system development and environmental factors. She was conferred a J.D. degree from Western State College of Law, Fullerton, California and was distinguished with American Jurisprudence Awards in Labor Law and Criminal Procedure. She has argued and briefed a variety of cases in the Appellate Courts. In recent years however, she has returned to her first love – writing about science, technology, ecology and the environment. Mary Anne always digs to the source and as a consequence her stories are cutting edge and detailed.”

          Nik, I don’t know if you saw that The Guardian had done an unexpectedly positive piece on skepticism, with praise for Anthony Watts and skeptic blogs (like this one!): http://www.theguardian.com/science/political-science/2013/jul/30/climate-sceptics-scientific-method
          I recommend that you search for UK sources for good skeptical comments, because there is something about the UK writers that is, I don’t know… intelligent. The Guardian article is no exception. For those of us that get in comment tussles with those parroting warmist talking points, there was a commenter that kept referring to skepticalscience dot com, and a skeptic had an outstanding response (in which ‘Rob’ later had a kind of gibbering ineffectual counter response):
          “Rob – can’t you see that trying to hijack a constructive dialogue with a link to your climate activist site is just the sort of behaviour that caused this ugly polarised debate in the first place. Try and take in what Warren [Guardian author] is saying and realise that activist dogma is the absolute antithesis of the scientific method.”

        Over 600 comments but did anybody change their mind? So far I’ve made a few info graphics that are bold and color coordinated enough to lodge in people’s subconscious directly and nag at them thus, over time . I’ll speed read at least and yes I’m always looking for tidbits that are good enough to cause the sort of public melt downs that expose activists as being miserable neurotics instead of policy relevant thinkers.

      • NikFromNYC says:

        OMG these online activists are still clinging to their hockey stick illusion and the perfected infallibility of the Team, even after Mann did a public victory dance on Facebook about the Marcott hockey stick that just exposed peer review collapse at the journal Science and thus peer review corruption in climatology in general. I have only had inspiration to make a quick and dirty Marcott graphic and hope the next round of popular books and other mass audience media pick up on it since anybody can understand its hokum, unlike Mann’s original, since Marcott re-dated data to obtain a hockey stick blade by sudden data drop off at the end, a blade that wasn’t even in his Ph.D. thesis about the same input data.

    The Saudis agreed to only sell their oil in dollars. We agreed to protect them. The US wants the Saudis to sell LOTS of oil, because they soak up surplus dollars from all over the world. That allows the Federal Reserve to print more money without immediate inflation.

  7. Disgrace and shameful gesture.Obama represents himself here not America .America never bows to a dictator Arab monarch.( who financed 19 terrorists of September 11,2001).The same Saudi family been ruling the country for almost a century.

  8. Traitor In Chief says:

    Al Mansour is the man identified arranging to have Obungo admitted to Harvard. He works for Al Waleed Bin Al Talal, Saudi Prince. And I believe in this video, Percy states that Obungos credentials from Columbia were being “arranged” and also mentions that he would be Prez of the Law Review…..before he had even been admitted. The article following is about Al Waleed saying fracking is a threat to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Any wonder there is no Keystone XL?

  9. In this (that picture says it all, to me), as in so many things now, the mass of men simply will not see the truth, because it threatens their comfortable, preferred dogmas, their slim hold on “understanding” the world.
