The 2% Deceit – Why the 99% Suffer

May 20, 2012

The following report is not at all new. This information has been known and reported for years. I personally knew about it as far back as the 1970’s. The government’s own people, let alone the private energy industry, have known for years. I call it the 2% Deceit and we are all suffering badly because of it. It’s that we are sitting on more oil than the rest of the world combined. Why don’t we use it?

The only barrier that existed at first was cost, with oil from the gulf and Texas at under $10 a barrel, it was simply too expensive at a then estimated $35 up a barrel. Then a new barrier arose as the government bought or nationalized a large amount of the area, creating parts and wilderness areas out of deserts that now block drilling and exploration. If that was not enough the EPA suddenly found anything they could to claim environmental catastrophe would occur.

So here we are, told by the Administration’s number one man (the president running for re-election) that we have 2% of the world’s oil. But it’s a LIE. We provably have more than the rest of the world combined!!!!!!

Why the deceit and suffering of the American people, you and me? Why?

Here is the article I referenced

In what should be bombshell news, is reporting that an expert with the federal government testified before Congress that:

The Green River Formation, a largely vacant area of mostly federal land that covers the territory where Colorado, Utah and Wyoming come together, contains about as much recoverable oil as all the rest the world’s proven reserves combined.

In a nation with sky-high gas prices, record long-term unemployment and widespread anxiety about the economy, this should be the biggest news story of the year.  But the fossil-fuel-hating liberal media are SILENT.

As drilling technology improves, many new oil and gas discoveries have taken place.  Most recently a discovery in North Dakota led to an oil boom that has left that state with a nation leading  3% unemployment rate. While fossil fuels continue to power America and drive prosperity, but the liberal media continue to cheerlead for pie-in-the-sky solar, algae and wind energy federal boondoggles.

Click here to demand that the media report the truth about what the Obama Administration can be doing to lower gas prices!

The media have a responsibility to report the facts and keep Americans informed about major policy developments. But they don’t.  Instead the media push the radical agenda of leftist environmentalists and socialist politicians.

They are desperate to prevent Americans from learning the truth about the Obama Administration’s war on oil and coal industry.’s bombshell report should be on the front pages of every major newspaper. Instead, the media are covering it up.

Why is CNSNews the only serious news outlet to thoroughly report this shocking discovery?

Because the revelation that the U.S. is sitting on such a vast and recoverable quantity of oil will mobilize Americans—regardless of ideology—to DEMAND that the Obama Administration tap this natural resource in order to help alleviate the high price of gas and spur job growth.

According to the federal government’s own experts, developing this vast energy resource “will lead to a number of important socioeconomic benefits including the creation of jobs, increases in wealth and increases in tax and royalty payments for federal and state governments.”

The GAO’s director of natural resources and environment added that “being able to tap this vast amount of oil locked within this formation will go a long way to help to meet our future demands for oil.”

This begs the obvious question: Who exactly is against creating wealth and jobs? Who is against lowering the price of gas by increasing supply?

The answer is radical environmentalists and their leftist media cronies.

The liberal media don’t care about jobs or the price of gas. As loyal Obama Administration sycophants and mouthpieces for the radical environmentalist lobby, the liberal media don’t want to increase oil supply. They want to wean Americans off oil and prop up costly and unproven so-called “green” energy.

Remember the EPA Administrator who was forced to resign in disgrace after revealing that the EPA’s strategy is to “crucify oil companies?”

Or how about the Secretary of Energy callously declaring that he wants to see gas prices rise to European levels, making it too expensive for Americans to fill up their tanks?

Or how about the media’s desperate defense of Obama’s inexcusable decision to block the Keystone pipeline which would have created thousands of jobs, increased oil supply, and lowered gas prices?

Make no mistake about it: the left-wing media are fervently committed to advancing this anti-fossil fuel agenda. That’s why they’re not reporting this shocking new finding.

We must hold the media accountable for covering up the truth about gas prices. Help us pressure the media to stop deceiving the American people by signing our petition today.

Thanks and please keep up the fight against the liberal media’s attacks.
