U.S./Europe LNG Cooperation can Bring Prosperity

John R. Houk

There is the potential for Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) to become the new boon for the U.S. economy. The cost of liquefying LGN is cost effective enough to meet a growing foreign demand for LNG in light of the current Russian extortion of some of its former Communist empire nations and Western Europe. The hat trick is to get busy in building enough terminals for exporting and importing to liquefy natural gas then ship it overseas then re-vaporize LNG to make it usable for European costumers.

 

My concern is that socialist and emerging former Communist nations of Europe may neither have the technical expertise or the financial capital to quickly and safely build that which is needed to create a market that is competitive enough to make the Russians think twice about its oil and gas extortion of Europe.

 

What would it take? It is my humble (and definitely not expert) opinion that something on the scale of the old Marshall Plan (SEE Also HERE) that was used to rebuild war crumbled economies of Europe that essentially raised Free Europe to a competitive edge with the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (aka USSR or Russian Communist Empire). This time Russia is using the economic force of its natural resources rather than Communist ideology to call shots that are beneficial to Kremlin perceived Russian National Interests.

 

I pray President Barack Hussein Obama has an epiphany that for all his governing debacles on foreign and domestic policy he sees the opportunity to do one thing that can be an actual positive for a Presidential legacy. That would entail the unlikely scenario of closing his eyes and ears to the fear mongering of Environmental Marxists, Climate Change delusions and Agenda 21 sustainability projects that threaten the sovereignty and Liberty of Americans. If Obama can get past those kind of Leftists he could pull a Reagan and stop Russia in it National Interest tracks without firing a shot and bring some much needed prosperity to the USA which in turn will increase tax revenue (without crazy taxation) and start the ball rolling on reducing the U.S. deficit.

 

Yeah I know that is a lot of “ands”; nevertheless a successful LNG building program benefitting Europe and America would cause such economic gain that if or (hopefully when) Conservatives take over Congress and the Oval Office there would be great hesitation to open the dirty books I believe will expose Obama as one of the most corrupt Presidents this nation has had since the scandal riddled Administration of Ulysses S. Grant (SEE Also HERE). Obama success with a LNG economic scenario between the USA and Europe would create a situation which no one would want to darken with past nefarious actions.

 

Here is a video that will enable to visualize the potential of exporting wealth even though the video looks at the ease of importing LNG.

Now with all this in mind you need to contact your Congressman to show your support for HR 6 which has the name Domestic Prosperity and Global Freedom Act. This House Resolution if passes gets the ball rolling on exporting LNG to Europe so that nations have less dependence on energy resources from Russia. I am certain other Conservative organizations are supporting this. If you find a favorite one get on board. I heard about HR 6 via a Let Freedom Ring email from Colin Hanna. You can check that out below.

Dear Friend,

This Wednesday a bill that would force the government to allow the export of American liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Europe and third world countries will be marked-up in the House Energy and Commerce Committee.  The bill is the The Domestic Prosperity and Global Freedom Act, H.R. 6, and we should all support it right now.
 

Please click here to contact your Congressman and Senators and ask them to support this critical bill.

Colin Hanna, president of Let Freedom Ring, sent the following letter to House Energy and Commerce Chairman Fred Upton and Colorado Congressman Cory Gardner:
 
               

“I write to support the swift passage of the Domestic Prosperity and Global Freedom Act, H.R. 6 and to thank Mr. Gardner for introducing it.  This bill would respond to the urgent need to expand the exports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) for the benefit of the American worker in the current difficult economy and for our friends in Europe and elsewhere who are at the mercy of Russia and Iran for their energy.

               

“The Domestic Prosperity and Global Freedom Act, H.R. 6, would expedite the approval of export licenses to countries that belong to the World Trade Organization.  Currently export applications are languishing and are only considered for export to countries with which the United States has a free trade agreement.  It would also direct the approval of applications published in the Federal Register before March 6, 2014 without modification or delay.

               

“America’s plentiful natural gas, developed and undeveloped, can be a boon to the U.S. economy and it can help our allies and developing nations gain access to economical energy, giving them an alternative to supplies from Russia and Iran.

 

               

“Studies and reports from the Department of Energy, the House Committee on Commerce and Energy, and others have found that there is great interest in the world in American natural gas.  Now is the time to take this simple step to create more American jobs and strengthen our national security.”

 

 

LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD IN WASHINGTON. LET US HELP YOU CONTACT YOUR CONGRESSMAN AND SENATORS TO SUPPORT H.R. 6, the Domestic Prosperity and Global Freedom Act.

 

With warm regards,

Colin Hanna
President, Let Freedom Ring

Tony Newbill Emails 9/5 to 9/10/13


Pipeline - Motive Intl Interest in Syrian War

These emails continue to examine a stealth motive for President Barack Hussein Obama’s desire to launch a military strike against Syria. Oil/Gas economics and Saudi desires to be a Middle East hegemon under the aegis of Radical Islam appears to be the motive. Newbill takes a brief email interlude to note that Communist China is competing with the USA for economic dominance in Latin American nations.

“How exactly did Barack Obama pay for his Harvard Law School education?

 

The way the Obama campaign has answered the question was simply hard work and student loans.

 

But new questions have been raised about Obama’s student loans and Obama’s ties to a radical Muslim activist who reportedly was raising money for Obama’s Harvard studies during the years 1988 to 1991.

 

The allegations first surfaced in late March, when former Manhattan Borough president Percy Sutton told a New York cable channel that a former business partner who was “raising money” for Obama had approached him in 1988 to … (READ THE REST Obama college costs paid by Saudis Arabs, Khalid Al-Mansour requested Arab money, Vernon Jarrett Percy Suttton confirm, Obama bow to Saudi King proves loyalty; From Citizen WElls News; 9/24/12)

 

Syrian War is a Saudi Intelligence Operation

Reason for a Syrian Strike!!!!

 

http://www.newswithviews.com/McGuire/paul184.htm

 

 

What is happening in Syria will not only affect America, Russia, Great Britain, China, Syria, Iran, and Israel. It will affect the entire world because Syria, controlling major oil assets off its coast, occupies a critical position in the global oil economy. It is possible for oil prices to go through the roof, and that would send a tsunami across the global economy. There have been reports put out by big banks like SocGen and Goldman Sachs that oil could soar to $150 a barrel if the Syrian conflict goes hot and draws in Russia and China.

 

VIDEO: Paul McGuire World War III Syria, U.S. Prophecy

 

According to an article by Steve Quayle in his, “V – The Guerrilla Economist Updates,” “The trouble for Syria began with two things. First the discovery of natural gas in the Mediterranean right off the coast of Syria, Lebanon and Israel. Read that list again, especially Lebanon and Syria. Is the picture becoming clearer? This discovery took place about a decade ago but the thing is that there already exists in the Middle East a Liquid Natural Gas Producing power house. This is the tiny nation of Qatar.”

 

Quayle continues, “Now here is where you need to put your thinking caps on. Qatar is floating in LNG (Liquid Natural Gas) it has over 77 Billion Tonnes in Reserve and that is with a moratorium in place. The problem is that Qatar would love to sell its LNG to the EU and the hot Mediterranean markets. The problem for Qatar in achieving this is their regional big brother Saudi Arabia. The Saudis have already said “NO” to an overland pipe cutting across the Land of Saud.” The Qatar / Syria region has vast reserves of natural gas. Russia has a deal with Syria that allows it to sell this Natural Gas and Oil to Europe.”

 

Russia now controls the oil coming out of Syria and being sold throughout Europe and China. However, there appears to be a battle for the control of that oil.

 

The Nabucco Agreement was signed by a handful of European nations and Turkey back in 2009. It was an agreement to run a natural gas pipeline across Turkey into Austria, bypassing Russia again with Qatar in the mix as a supplier to a feeder pipeline via the proposed Arab pipeline from Libya to Egypt to Nabucco (is the picture getting clearer?). The problem with all of this is that a Russian backed Syria stands in the way.

 

Qatar would love to sell its LNG to the EU and the hot Mediterranean markets. The problem for Qatar in achieving this is Saudi Arabia. The Saudis have already said “NO” to an overland pipe cutting across the Land of Saud. The only solution for Qatar if it wants to sell its oil is to cut a deal with … (READ THE REST AMERICA, SYRIA, AND RUSSIA: OPENING THE GATES OF HELL; By Paul McGuire; NewsWithViews.com; 9/2/13)

More Thoughts on a Syrian Strike

Sent: 9/6/2013 2:02 PM

 

Here’s Obama’s press conference transcript from the G 20 today. He said this in the last page towards the end to John Karl….

“And I want to make sure I’m being clear. I’m not — I’m not drawing an analogy to World War II, other than to say when London was getting bombed, it was profoundly unpopular, both in Congress and around the country, to help the British”. [Editor: Quote is in the Newbill email]

 

Is Obama trying to scare the European Union into thinking that if the Plan General Wesley Clark talks about (in the Next Video) describing what the additional Links talk about; that is [to say] Europe will Lose its Energy resources coming out of the Middle East????

 

It would appear Obama is following through with the Plan and General Wesley Clark talks about it here in this Video:

VIDEO: The Plan — according to U.S. General Wesley Clark (Ret.)


And there is a purpose for this plan that has Saudi Arabian interests all over it as well as the Interests of a Banking cartel called the Federal Reserve that wants to continue to reign as the Petrol Dollar Trade Currency for OPEC Oil.

Syrian War is a Saudi Intelligence Operation

http://www.omegashock.com/2013/09/05/syrian-war-is-a-saudi-intelligence-operation/

Reason for a Syrian Strike!!!! This shows how Obama and the Banking Cartel that runs the dollar trade currency for OPEC OIL can use the strike as a gathering tool to bring Saudi and Qatar and the Muslim Brotherhood as the “Enforcer” together. The rest of the world, Russia and China primarily will not sit back and let this happen. WW3 will be the result!!!!!!


http://www.newswithviews.com/McGuire/paul184.htm [Editor: Excerpted above]

But once you realize this Alliance between [the Obama Administration and] Saudi Arabia, that has the leverage on the Federal Reserve’s desires to keep the dollar as the Petrol Dollar Trade Currency in OPEC, then the Various alliances – Qatar, Muslim Brotherhood alliances and Obamas connections with them, NOW BRING into this Mix the fact that General Wesley Clark Talking about “The Plan,” it becomes clear that Obama has been put in place to bring together the factions needed to Put Saudi Arabia in charge of the majority of Middle Eastern Oil and The Dollar Custodians Continue to reign over the trade of OPEC Oil.

Looking at this alliance between Saudi Arabia and Obama shows us that it would appear that Saudi Arabia is running the Military Decisions of the USA!!!!!

The Obama/Saudi Arabian Loyalty is built into the Commander -in- Chief Position held by Obama today!!!!! Obama is following through with a Plan that General Wesley Clark points out in the first link of a video. This is a Plan that Bush was Following too! So WHO IS RUNNING THE USA OFF THE CLIFF?????

China’s Pivot to Latin America

Sent: 9/9/2013 4:52 PM

 

This will Keep the Federal Reserve buying US Bonds forever and doom the dollar as world’s trade currency.

 

http://www.theamericasreport.com/2013/09/04/chinas-pivot-to-latin-america/


The quest for global naval power runs parallel to competition for control of markets in Latin America… The two largest world economies, the United States, and China are vying for control of these markets.

 

China has an enormous population of approximately 1.3 billion people but   is only able to use a very small percentage of its land mass. Its’ consumer market is the wealthiest it has been in modern times. China desires access to key resources such as petroleum, coal, iron, uranium, as well as agricultural products. Latin America is in high global demand, with 500 million people, and a $3trillion market. In its quest to be Latin America’s foremost business partner, China has risen out of ambiguity to become one of the top three exporters, sometimes surpassing the United States in countries like Argentina, Peru, Venezuela, Chile, and Brazil.

 

China has sought to be the prime lender in Latin America, loaning $110 billion dollars thus exceeding the World Bank’s contribution for the past two years. Some of China’s other most noteworthy loans include $28 billion to Venezuela, $10.2 billion to the Argentine debt swap, and 10 billion to Brazilian oil company, Petrobras. China wishes to benefit from developing infrastructure, ports, roads and rail systems in Latin America. In Nicaragua, China is planning the start of a canal bigger than the Panama Canal, facilitating passage to larger container ships than the Panama Canal is now able to handle. In Panama, China controls the leases at both ends of the Panama Canal and is in the process of widening the Canal in order to accommodate larger vessels. This constitutes excellent strategic positioning for China, giving them virtual control over two major passageways. Though a huge amount of the world’s trade transits the Panama Canal, the United States remains its biggest user.

 

China’s economic relations in the Caribbean are also growing by leaps and bounds. Consider a $2.6 billion resort, among a gaggle of Chinese owned hotels and casinos being built by the Chinese in the Bahamas, 80 miles off the U.S. coast. Or Complant, a Chinese company, investing millions of dollars in … (READ THE REST China’s Pivot to Latin America; By Terence Rosenthal; The Americas Report; 9/4/13)

Here is an Article that shows you the relationship between Senator John McCain and those who can Benefit from a Syrian Strike. And [this Article shows] how the News Media and Business Media would drive the use of force to rally support from the Citizenry [and] why their motive is concealed. But thanks to alternative media sites the truth can prevail!!!!!

A US campaign watchdog has accused presumptive Republican president nominee John McCain of violating election laws by accepting campaign contributions from two prominent Londoners.

 

At issue is a fundraising luncheon held in March at London’s Spencer House, during McCain’s swing through the United Kingdom. An invitation to the event lists Lord Rothschild and Nathaniel Rothschild as hosts, and indicates the event was made possible with their “kind permission”.

 

Judicial Watch, a Washington organisation instrumental in the March release of Hillary Clinton’s White House schedules, has asked US election monitors to investigate whether the Rothschilds improperly sponsored the fundraiser. US political campaigns are forbidden from accepting contributions from foreign nationals.
