… What are the Feds Thinking ?!?! [#federal lands][#fracking regs]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,June 18th,2016

.. Congress has acted in this area , already . They have stated that fracking regulation is to be reseved to the states . If a state does not want fracking on its lands [such as the idiots in New York state] , then they do not have it . But it is the state ‘ s choice . It is not the Federales ‘ choice .

.. so Congress has clearly acted in this area . The statement of intent applies to even federal lands . Ditto to Indian Tribal lands , as well . So then , what the hell are the ObamaCraps doing ?? …

.. [link] to the blog article …

.. these dummies are attempting a powergrab , plain and simple . The federal courts are going to have to step in and smack the government down and stop their lawless action . Unfortunately , as a result , lands will lie fallow , especially Indian Tribal lands . Those lands are some of the most promising of possibilities . But not now …

… The Environmentalist Lobby is …

.. a national security danger .

.. if you do not believe me , take it from John Fund from the WSJ and the National Review . POTUS has the potential approvals on his table for energy projects [ yet , that includes the Kestone XL pipeline] that would help greatly in weaning the Europeans from the yoke of Russian energy dependency …

.. [h/t — NationalReview]..
.. [link] to the FoxNews interview with Fund …

.. the energy projects are in this case for the export of natural gas . The same pipelines and export points can be used for the export of either U.S. oil and natural gas , or to aid Canada , since it would be far easier to link to the U.S. market , and to existing U.S. pipelines …

.. Any Canadian pipelines heading east would have to cross the St. Laurence River and the St. Laurence Valley . It would also have the headaches of [-] navigating around Niagra Falls , [-] the Great Lakes , and [-] the Appalachian Mountains . It would be far simpler to reach the U.S. East Coast via the U.S. pipeline network …

… LNG can change the Middle East (and Europe) …

LNG can change the ME and Europe

.. Israel can make a mark in energy at last . and , it may well help change , in some ways , the map of the Middle East , and possibly even Europe , as  well . ..

.. Israel has taken a large step toward energy independence , as natural gas from the smaller of its newly discovered Mediterranean gas fields began to flow . ..   .. Eventually , once further exploration and exploitation has occured , Israel will become a net exporter on the world market . And , hopefully , it will send a message to Russia , and to the United States . Russia already exports natural gas . Canada does so , as well , as do the UK and Norway . The US should be , as well . As much natural gas is apparantely underneath the US in the various oil shale formations , the Middle East is screwed , and the Russians will be made to behave . ..   .. Of course another country has

in recent years begun to move from energy dependence to independence, from importer to exporter–our own. And these facts about both Israel and the United States will have lasting and significant geopolitical ramifications . ..

.. Israel had already become an economic success story and its success will be reinforced–while around it are political and economic failures like Egypt and Syria , and energy-needy Jordan . The natural supplier of energy for Jordan and any eventual Palestinian state is Israel, a fact that would change the nature of their relationships. In a region where instability is spreading, a stable, increasingly wealthy, powerful Israel will grow in value as an American ally . ..
