The economy is not on solid footing. We still have emergency monetary measures six years later.
Lower gas prices will goose the economy. It is get American anywhere near average growth the fed will act to get out of the dangerous game forced by Obama's willful childishness.
The rig counts and crews will come down fast. I assume SA will keep oil low until they have really slowed our industry. Unlike the OLB, the driller do understand this game.
SA did not have to allow prices below $60 to achieve their geopolitical agenda. They do if they intend to achieve their goal of badly disrupting American oil production.
Settle in and settle down. Anything is possible with this type of brinksmanship. But the odds are this will be going on for at least six months. It is sure as well that Obama will once again unilaterally surrender American oil as he has everything else.
Two more years of Obama. Very sad.
Happen so quickly there was no time to react. It will really pick up in the first quarter. This is what SA desires.
They even have the capacity to make up a disruption.
Just more Progressive neo-keynesian garbage.
Progressive Europe suched the future of the young generations into self absorbed consumption of boomers.
Then they loaded the emotion based failing edifice of social justice material nihilism with the irrational religion of global warming.
Their only pray is American continues to allow the Germans to run their abusive trade surplus with us. Although their companies are coming here as the Climate Control delusion cost of energy has already made it economically impossible.
Increased oil demand will not come from probably to far gone culturally destroyed oil Europe. A cultural failure which was allowed to feed back and destroy the foundation of their economy.
It will come from Asia. What Asia must have with their elite controlled economise built on the American consumer is American consumers with some income. Which the drop in oil prices has done. By enough to over come the childish willfulness of Obama policies.
The Obama relief economic recovery could begin next year. If Americans make it clear Hillary and absolutely irrational Warren can not win.
Also no more #$%$ from the Republicans like the Christmas tree cronyUbus spending bill. Comprehensive directly translates into corruption. Why Progressive say the word every two minutes.

WASHINGTON—The White House is calling on federal agencies to consider the climate-change impact of a wide range of energy projects that require government approval.
The draft guidelines, released Thursday by the White House’s Council on Environmental Quality, are likely to affect fossil-fuel projects the most, such as pipelines, terminals that export coal and liquefied natural gas, and production of oil, natural gas and coal on public lands.
Business and energy interests complained when the White House signaled almost three years ago that it planned such a change that it could slow federal reviews. Some congressional Democrats support the move.
The guidance doesn’t affect the Keystone XL pipeline, whose review already has considered climate change, according to an administration official.
The draft guidance spells out how different agencies, such as the Interior Department, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and Army Corps of Engineers, should consider the greenhouse-gas emissions of projects that require environmental reviews under the National Environmental Policy Act. It also encourages agencies to consider alternatives that have smaller carbon footprints.
If an agency determines it doesn’t want to weigh such climate impacts, it must explain why not.
Current law requires the government to consider local environmental concerns about projects, but not global problems such as climate change."
Obama screwing it on purpose again. Selling out American energy to Saudi OPEC.
Pipe lines are the safest, cleanest and most efficient alternative. NG as the worlds cleanest fuel can and would reduce co2 exactly as has been achieved in America. Despite the legions of unscience Progressive Grubers.
Of course America supplying oil and natural gas to world markets does not chance demand. So if we do not supply from our extreme standards, it will be done by Progressives like Venezuela or refined by China.
YOu know it is heart warming. The audience really doesn't like Jon old jokes.
Even when it is well timed and clearly playful. Jessica really executed it perfectly but no play.
Seems to be a very nice empathy between Jon and his audience. Very interesting dynamic.
Even Jon can only pull it off about 1/3 of the time. Which means it can not be better executes.
Masterful job with the stickler Paul McCartney.
But my goodness. Mr O is only 10th in annoying? Of course he wants to be number 1. Why he liked that video of his work commute with the theme music.
There has to be an angle on this which is really funny.
Oh well that is the good thing about be Mad Who. No One listens.
It was a smart show. Especially the articulate Football player who took the time to reason through his public protest. So he could answer cogently.
But No One sees no purpose in street parties disrupting traffic and commerce. No One sees no good in the big bird socialist destroying any hope of working effectively with his police department. Nothing positive can come of it now.
I think of an innocent 12 year old boy gunned down. Justice would demand all the elements which contributed be openly reasoned and addressed striving toward solutions. That this life ended before his full God Given Potential was even near, would not be a political vanity.
Otherwise we have a political trial with a ritual sacrifice. Tribal blood feud style which Progressive have clearly never advanced from.
While the world simply forgets two human beings hammered to death by teens. Which if we are honest must admit JZ does nothing to address as he burnishes his street cred. With naive and understandably angry youth. Who's own lives are likely over as well too.
Progressive collectivist material nihilist belief has ruled inner city communities for more than two generations now. In a country which happily welcomed the first color President. America is not suddenly more racist than Jim Crow South. Progressive collectivism simply does not work due to the of constant human nature. Which does not change with pigment level.
Sharpie in the White House any one? Sharpie is not there for family school choice or programs to boost community businesses. No trade schools. Nothing.
But the pope of the gutter is more than prepared to sell indulgences to petty executives. Not even the executives money. Corporate money.
I am sure there are some Pastors who could use hands on help with a local project. I am sure there are some solid youths they would recommend for employment. Heck maybe there is a good story or script written in the community. Buy indulgence or repent. Hum.
Difference between 'market share' and maintaining market control at the margin of production.
So the agenda is to disrupt high cost American and Canadian production. Before we keep getting so much better at it. Before we build the necessary infrastructure.
Then channel money to character defectives like Gore by paying absurd prices for failed properties. Gore couldn't help it, crony capitalism is just to strong for him to resist. Hard to believe the Gov of New York could wave off fracturing when northern NY remains in an economic decline. But he did. Not based on science and well proven recent experience. Nope to do something so hard hearted and selfish requires the primitive dogma of the great good defined by a self assuming elite. Ego and personal power before any concept of serving the Good.
Now Willie, stop and think for a moment. Coal to liquid fuel was doing terribly before oil prices crashed. How bad will it be now?
Not as bad as corn or sugar ethanol. But then that depends on government oppression to impose the intellectual and monetary corruption.
Yea that is the Progressive conditioning of their automaton mob. False codependency on an enemy figure so the political automaton does not start thing for itself. A constant state of conflict.
Like you and attacking all police forces everywhere. None can be a model for community engagement and reduce crime rates which encourages economic investment and therefore economic opportunity to residents.
There is always a new generation coming along to emotionally exploit. So this destructive insanity as gone on for more than two generations now. Clergy should mediate and read honored Elder Sowell's basic economic book. Then move on to the others. Over two generations of making the same old mistakes in the same old way should stop.
How did the NAACP talented tenth model leading work out? Why did it fail completely?
Obama is not playing for money. Still believes he will be the historic transitional figure which brought American to the social justice of collectivist social organization. Political direction of all elements of economic and social.
Million dollar speeches and endless golf are his future. No core to his character and so as we witness, no real purpose.
Willie neither you nor I understand what you are attempting to go on prating about.
I wish the foundering South African democracy well. Maybe you should go over to a south african ADR gold miners and snark there?
Can anyone explain why the Lunar Modulator Willie from New South Africa is so emotional about American politics? What type of emotional condition compels a hostile alien to such regular tantrums?
Such is the Progressive conditioning of their mob automatons. Stunning how complete the conditioning and resulting control becomes.
Ah Lunar Modulator Willie. Your restive Progressive conditioning compels you to snark.
Obama has purposely created such division for his personal political power that America will have to enter a period of restoring our institutions. Calming inflamed angers by imaginary stereotyping of Americans by every permutation of superficial genetic code.
It will require a sound character to be a restorative leader. It will also require personal experience and connections as a political CEO. The political engine room runs on understanding human beings with process being a secondary tool of power.
The Australian PM is a good model.
It is still a wide open field as the process begins now. it will be interesting and exciting. IF the Chamber of Commerce does not get their neo-conservative / Progressive pick.
PBS is state controlled 'news' for the secular material nihilism collectivist.
It exists as a manifestation of the Judeo-Christian belief in public education. Which is sometimes does very well. Despite the collectivists.
Sesame Street was born of the collectivist idea black children need their own show. What happened is children are children. Good teaching is good teaching method. Still blind.
Anway, if the collectivist insist on keeping non educational political nonsense like the News Hour and POV then there is no justification for public funding. In fact it destroys the only foundation for public funding.
Emotionals like Ms. Powers will say silly stuff like you got what you want so we should keep what we want. Which is of course the real root problem. So she still doesn't understand why her activist government has collapsed into a special interest feeding frenzie.
Prancing Progressive Bear,
The story of the West and Persia during high Imperialism of EUROPE. The uneasy spheres of influence between Britain and Russia. There is also the scare in the current name. Arryan of National Socialism rather than returning to Persia.
The real delusion was the military fashion assumption economic and educational development leaders to culture ideals of Individual Liberty. When the foundation of Individual Liberty is Faith. The only sustainable foundation for a law system.
The Judge bight as he is, is a club wielding metaphysical Denisovan. So he has no answer as a Catholic to a good Pope clearly hopelessly naive about concentration of power and human nature. It really is no wonder the Judge journeyed to the Jon Stewart's Cave of Never Change to kowtow before the secular media demigod of irrational 'freedom'.
Your nescience musings are churlishly mawkish of Obama's lack of character. The Green Movement is a Liberty movement. It is not based on food riots bringing collectivist oppressors to power and then naming the monster 'democracy' because it is lawless majority or more accurately Progressive mob rule..
The primitive Jon Stewart belief that if a majority knew what he does, they would think just like him. Everything was fine before those Greeks started using logic to understand the nature of a God worthy of worship. A God necessary for Just human civilization. After all if every one just believed in man's control of our imperfect nature, Iran would become Stewartistan. Everyone does as they wish without concepts of individual virtue and therefore honour and all are peaceful as result.
All this ancient Progressive myth is not interesting or even productive in anyway.
As Washington said, we recommend Individual Liberty to other peoples and lands best by our good example.
Truth is it is hard to see the gifts of Liberty in America when the Progressive hate it more than anything else. So hate America and Liberty.
Defective corn ethanol therefore illegal by the RFS Law Opie,
It is interesting Progressives blame Bush for the subprime mortgage economic collapse when it was all PROGRESSIVE.
Republicans and Bush are responsible for the delusion that free trade with China would create a more democratic state. I will admit I bought into as well. But never with the blind faith of the 'Conservative' economic dogma.
Progressive collectivists always love the Chinese elite directed economic system. But as is the record of political control by direction of the economy in Europe, living standards do not increase. The concentration of power leads to massive corruption. Just as we have witnessed all over Europe using the Climate Control delusion as the conard for corruption.
Just as we see here in America as Obama's abuse of EPA power was a prime factor in raising food and energy costs. Also dampening rational investment in our oil and gas renaissance while imposing the dead weight economic cost of special interest corruption corn ethanol, wind mills and solar panels as base load.
All Obama has done is thrown a life line to an evil military/secret police dictator. Venezuelan can not float their energy patronage. Even if the Cuban secret police are necessary to keep the corrupt Progressive regime in power.
I admire this new Pope. But he is a political dilettante. Repeating the church mistakes which turned Europe from a Christian place to a material nihilism pagan progressive land.
The report served no useful purpose. Americans just saw the savages saw heads off with a dull knife.
Whatever the merits of what happened it is not practice now. So once again Progressive sound and fury to destructure purpose against the judgement of the American people.
If John McCain feels it was unnecessary then this carries great weight with me. But I can not bring myself to fully agree.
But to make the claim that the information was gained by other means only proves the ignorance of the writer on the subject. Intelligence is shifting through unlimited information to find truth. Multiple sources confirming elements is necessary. Those who know better will not say as not giving away methods is more important than themselves.
So this delusion that it is one person with all the answers only serves to misinform fellow Americans. I believe Honourable but makes me crazy Feinstein collectivist was rightfully more concerned with the CIA snooping on Senators than the 'torture'.
This is no some poor traditional American being tortured by the current Progressive inquisition. Are you an individualist? Do you admire Reagan? Yes? Burn at the stake!
