An ACT for America email highlights a video interview that is between Brigitte Gabriel and T. Boone Pickens talking about energy security will be America’s National Security. The content of the video should be of interest to Conservatives interested in protecting a market driven economy and breaking the stranglehold of Muslim nations’ dominating global oil production as well as to Counterjihadists concerned of the threat of the antichrist religion known as Islam.
I’m posting the email text describing the video followed by the 26 minute and 52 second Youtube video.

Few subjects are as closely connected as National Security and Energy Security in the U.S. Without a reliable source of fuel, the U.S. economy will grind to a halt, but almost every dollar that goes overseas to pay for oil helps to fund radical Islamic terror.
There is a solution, however. We need to “turn oil into salt.”
In ancient times, salt was the commodity that drove commerce. Cities rose and wars were fought over salt deposits. Today, due to refrigeration, salt is now one of the cheapest commodities available.It no longer has any strategic value. Two pieces of legislation that have been introduced in the U.S. Congress will help “turn oil into salt.” If passed and signed into law, these bills will set the stage for oil to become the salt of the modern world — abundant, cheap, and easily replaceable.
If oil is no longer a strategic commodity, the vast amount of wealth enjoyed by oil rich OPEC countries, and the terror funding that is supported by petrodollars, will disappear. Without the OPEC oil money, terror funding dries up. It’s the closest thing to a silver bullet that we know of, when it comes to fighting jihadist terror.
The bills Brigitte mentions in the video are H.R. 2418 [Blog Editor: Here and HERE] and S. 889 [Blog Editor: HERE and HERE] and, as she notes, they would use market forces to let consumers choose how they want to fuel their vehicles — and turn the conventional “gas” station into a fuel station. (What a concept! Americans actually having a CHOICE about how they want to fuel their vehicles, with no mandate and no cost to taxpayers!)
When consumers have this kind of choice, oil prices go down and money that finances countries that want nothing more than to destroy the U.S. dries up. It’s that simple.
We need you to register your support for these two bills, and to ask your federal legislators to support them as well by signing on as a co-sponsor.
Thank you for your help. By continuing to work together, we will accomplish a lot!
