Evil Tyrannical Bastard Barack Obama to Shut Down Drilling on 1.6 MILLION Oil Rich Acres of Federal Land
“By significantly reducing the acreage of wilderness potentially available for leasing, Secretary Salazar is laying out a creative, thoughtful and more responsible approach in managing some of our most precious resources,”
~ Bobby McEnaney, senior lands analyst with the Natural Resources Defense Council, a radical Anti-American, anti-growth, anti-business “environmental” group.

No doubt most of our readers have at least heard of the Cloward-Piven Strategy of Orchestrated Crisis, many have a solid knowledge of how it works and what it’s supposed to do. If not, I suggest you do the research.
To anyone paying attention it certainly looks like Barack Obama has been following Cloward-Piven to the letter since he took office in 2009.
First described in detail in the May 2, 1966 issue of The Nation [a communist run magazine] by a pair of radical socialist Columbia University professors, Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. The concept is simple:
The strategy of forcing political change through orchestrated crisis. The “Cloward-Piven Strategy” seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.
Remember, former Clinton and Obama henchman, and now Chicago Mayor, Rahm Emanuel once famously said “never let a crisis go to waste.” He too is a student of the Cloward-Piven method.
In 2008 James Simpson writing for American Thinker in a piece called Barack Obama and the Strategy of Manufactured Crisis noted:
In an earlier post, I noted the liberal record of unmitigated legislative disasters, the latest of which is now being played out in the financial markets before our eyes. Before the 1994 Republican takeover, Democrats had sixty years of virtually unbroken power in Congress – with substantial majorities most of the time. Can a group of smart people, studying issue after issue for years on end, with virtually unlimited resources at their command, not come up with a single policy that works? Why are they chronically incapable?
One of two things must be true. Either the Democrats are unfathomable idiots, who ignorantly pursue ever more destructive policies despite decades of contrary evidence, or they understand the consequences of their actions and relentlessly carry on anyway because they somehow benefit.
I submit to you they understand the consequences. For many it is simply a practical matter of eliciting votes from a targeted constituency at taxpayer expense; we lose a little, they gain a lot, and the politician keeps his job. But for others, the goal is more malevolent – the failure is deliberate. Don’t laugh. This method not only has its proponents, it has a name: the Cloward-Piven Strategy. It describes their agenda, tactics, and long-term strategy.
Since then, we have seen Obama and his minions work Cloward-Piven like a champ. They’ve doubled the number of Americans on food stamps, and record numbers have been added to the disability roles. On top of that, Obama has added $5 TRILLION to the national debt, with absolutely nothing to show for it. [except the pending collapse of it all]
Various Obama departments have instituted draconian regulations designed to kill off many businesses and further send the economy into decline.
What does that have to do with shale oil? Well, shale is one of America’s real success stories. Obama and his thug government have declared war on all of our natural resources. Coal, oil, and natural gas, the only reliable sources of energy we have, are now considered great evils by the regime, though it’s OK to import all we want and enrichen terrorist nations who want to kill us.
At a time of high unemployment, a worsening economy, and skyrocketing prices, one of the real bright spots is shale oil and natural gas.
