This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

#dontgo: The Rebellion Continues


Earlier today we posted two particularly relevant articles in regards to the GOP Rebellion now going strong and getting stronger by the day. There were others posted as well but the piece entitled Beware Republicans! Don't fall into the trap! and the one entitled #dontgo Nation Wide: No End In Sight But Victory are very appropriate to this piece you are reading now.

Nancy Pelosi, as we have reported on several times, has sanctioned at-risk fellow Leftinistra and eco-Nazi-like sycophants to go ahead and lie to their constituents in regards to energy independence in order to get re-elected or elected. This shows not only their total void of personal integrity but also their lack of professional integrity. If one feels that they must lie for political gain or power, I question their ability to exercise sound judgment in any and all areas even as minor an operation of picking their noses might be.

To add insult to injury, knowing she has sanctioned such activities among "her people" and, by the way, what are the American people to her, she stated oon CNN's Larry King that she is at least willing to consider drilling operations. Keeping all of my research on the Pelosi Worm in the back of my mind as I read article after article, I found countless posts saying that Pelosi is beginning to cave. Not hardly.

johnsblog42 seems to think that Nanna is caving. The Pirate's Cove sort of king of thinks so but is leery...smart move. Surprisingly, PoliPundit has apparently taken the bait. Right Voices is admonishing everyone to keep watch on Nanna. Wizbang got me with their title and I had thought "OH NO!" until I actually clicked out of the Reader and read the entire post which, btw is a must read. WUA says that Nanna is backed into a corner with no way out and that is exactly correct. John Boehner is calling Nanna out over her interview with CNN and I would imagine that she is just all contrite...NOT!...and he is sending the message home in a very large way. No wonder the moonbats are having hissy fits...they see the Abyss of Obscurity opening up to swallow them whole and they are sore afraid. Hot Air also had one of those "you've got to kidding me titles" but knowing Ed, I wasn't totally sucker-punched. He sees the writing on the wall as well. However, Erick at Red State has taken the bait...too bad and big surprise in store coming his way for sure.

Newt Gingrich says that Nancy is stuck between a rock and an oil well. Is Newt reading The Newt? IBD Editorials asks, "Will Congress Cross the Jordan?". After reading the post, the sarcasm was duly noted. We have heard that it is too hard to extract oil from shale yet, that is exactly what Jordan is doing...and Shell Oil will be doing the extractions.
[...] Meanwhile, we sit on enough oil to make OPEC look like a mom-and-pop operation. In the West we may have what could be called a Persia on the Plains. A Rand Corp. study says the Green River Formation, which covers parts of Colorado, Utah and Wyoming, has the largest known oil shale deposits in the world.

"The United States has 2 trillion barrels of oil shale," according to the Institute for Energy Research. "This is more than seven times the amount of crude oil reserves found in Saudi Arabia and is enough to meet current U.S. demand for over 250 years."

Consider that the entire world has used around 1 trillion barrels since oil was discovered in Titusville, Pa., in 1859.

"If full-scale production begins within five years," reckons Nick Loris of the Heritage Foundation, "the U.S. could completely end its dependence on OPEC by 2020." There's enough North American petroleum trapped in oil sands and shale rock to form our own OPEC. [...]
In other items of interest, in another IBD Editorial piece, the writer does caution people on Nanna's sudden "change of heart"...my paraphrase. It is well worth the read and to heed the admonition. While House Democrats will meet to determine their options - OPTIONS? WTFO?
[...] Party leaders in the House are expected to convene a conference call on Wednesday to discuss their options in the ongoing energy debate, including a potential compromise measure that could include some expanded permitting for oil and gas exploration, a leadership aide said Tuesday. [...]
I never thought I would ever see the day that I would consider the term "compromise" as the dreaded and inflammatory "C-word" but, there it is and it doesn't start with "P" either. I also haven't considered the possibility that American Democrats could actually hate American Oil but love all the other oil not American. To me, that is a stretch but Doug Ross has a good point:
In May Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said that Saudi Arabia could slash oil prices by drilling for more oil.

If Saudi Arabia were to increase its production by 1 million barrels per day that translates to a reduction of 20 percent to 25 percent in the world price of crude oil, and crude oil prices could fall by more than $25 dollar per barrel from its current level of $126 per barrel [...]
If that isn't an indictment of how looney the Leftinistra are, I wouldn't know what is. Schumer said that increasing supply is done by - are you ready? - DRILLING! But, only if it was Saudi Arabia doing the drilling. And they wonder why quite a few countries do not take the USA seriously? Surely the Saudis are rolling on the floor - in a dignified manner, naturally - laughing their heinies off at us. Why is it that AMERICA cannot drill to increase supply and the Saudis can? Are they better at it than the USA? Are they eco-friendlier than the USA? I would say no to both questions.

Michelle Malkin (my secret sweetheart) needs to see a doctor:
Maybe Do-Nothing Nancy should enter the Olympic diving competition. She gets a 10 for her flip-flop-flop yesterday on drilling. It is now no longer the "hoax" she knew.

What a hoot. Did she think she could sell 2 more books trying to pander and straddle like this? Nan, you're slaying us. My sides hurt. [...]
I laughed also but not like that. Mine was more of a derisive and contemptuous sneer chuckle type of a thing. Melanie Morgan our GREATEST Troop Supporter in the known universe derided Nanna in this manner:
San Fran Nanny may be a 'progressive' democrat, but even her leftist positions are moderated by the polls from time to time, and right now, today, is one of those times.

That's why she has now dropped the word 'hoax' from her vocabulary over offshore oil drilling, and has decided to allow for a vote.

Kudos to the Congressional Republicans who stayed strong in the dimmed rooms of Congress, demanding a vote over and over again. It looks like the heat got to be too much for Madame Speaker -- she needs to get out of the kitchen. [...]
I sent her an email cautioning against too much excitement...LOL!! I cannot stand Nanna...her voice has become much worse than Hillary's and that is either an accomplishment or something else - I'm not quite sure yet. And, I just love Gateway Pundit serious humor...is there such a thing?
Pelosi Falls For Drilling Hoax -- Pelosi says that she might consider allowing a vote on domestic drilling and energy development but that it would have to be part of a larger package that included other policies, like releasing oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. She did not mention whether government regulated tire inflation would be part of the plan. [...]
Now, I saved the Gateway Pundit snippet for last for a reason. And, that reason is the piece from The Hill where it describes what Nanna is up to. She timed the interview on the Larry King show to coincide with the Olympics in the hopes that America was watching that silly thing and not paying attention to the screwing Americans are getting and have been getting from the Leftinistra for decades. The Leftinistra are banking on no one paying attention. The War In Georgia is also being used as a distraction as well as ugly as that sounds but, there you have it and I wouldn't doubt it at all - not one iota. That is how the liberal mind works...deceitful, dishonest, no moral values, no honesty, no integrity personal or professional.

The title of the piece from The Hill: "Pelosi looks to load up drilling bill". And there it is. I can smell earmarks from here and I am nearly 2,000 miles away from DC. I can smell the use of the "C-word".
[...] Democratic leaders are expected to begin discussing the shape of the package in a conference call Wednesday.

Republicans, who have staged a sit-in of sorts on the House floor for more than a week in order to demand an immediate drilling vote, greeted Pelosi's gesture with deep skepticism.

"If Speaker Pelosi is truly sincere about having a vote on deep-ocean oil and gas drilling to help bring down fuel costs, she should use her power as Speaker to call Congress back into session immediately and schedule a vote on the American Energy Act," Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) said in a statement released Tuesday morning.

Both Boehner and House Minority Whip Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) said the protest on the floor will continue. Republicans are demanding a vote on the entire Republican energy plan, which includes drilling offshore and in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska.

"We are asking that she bring our American Energy Act up for a vote," said Rep. John Kline (R-Minn.), who on Tuesday morning led nine Republicans to the House floor for their 10th day of protests. "If she brings it up under regular order, then amendments will be allowed and we'll have that debated. What we want is a chance to have that debate and have a vote."

Pelosi intentionally timed her reversal on CNN's "Larry King Live" to fall well before the political intensity of the party conventions and into a news cycle dominated by the Olympics. [END]
It isn't a Pelosi reversal folks. It is her way to attempt to take over the debate by using the "C-word" and adding "amendments" and we all know what that bloody well means.

Stand tough GOP Rebellion. Stand tough. She is PISSED off because her attempt to delay debate and vote failed. Her original intent was to delay it long enough to get the moratoriums continued so she can make untold BILLIONS on the T Boone Land and Water Grab Scheme.
