Hollywood’s Political Agenda

The United States will become the world’s largest oil producer by around 2020, temporarily overtaking Saudi Arabia, as new exploration technologies help find more resources, the International Energy Agency forecast on Monday.

That quote comes from a November 12, 2012, Fox News article. It has to do with the discovery of huge deposits of natural gas that can be and are being developed using a process call fracking, where by rock formations deep below the surface are fractured using high pressure water and chemical injections. The process is not new. There are over 50,000 oil and gas wells operating in America that were developed with the fracking technique. Although the “save the earth” “global warming” “environmental extremest” are claiming all kinds of unacceptable “potential” risk to the environment and to the health and well being of Americans from the use of fracking, there is no evidence from the 50,000 existing wells of any problems. Most of the left-hand threaded wingnuts know the truth about fracking but they persist in trying to ban its use. Why? I believe there are two reasons. One is that some of these nuts really believe the “gospel of global warming”. The other reason is that the environmental movement was infiltrated by Marxists years ago and their only goal is the destruction of capitalism in America and the world.

The hypocrisy is so evident that one wonders just how gullible is the average American? The Sierra Club for years was a proponent of natural gas as an environmentally clean alternative to other fossil fuels. But, that was when natural gas was scarce. Now that the potential exist to have abundant cheap and clean energy, they are fighting fracking tooth and nail. The UN’s IPCC scientist, who invented the global warming scare, have now reported that their data doesn;t fit their models. Imagine that! Inform The Pundits has the story.

But, facts and logic are of no interest to those who are hell-bent on destroying Western civilization. And, that includes the left-hand threaded wingnuts in Hollywood.

Jeffery Folks, writing for American Thinker, tells us about a new movie due to hit the big screens on the 28th of this month called The Promised Land;  a film co-written and starring Matt Damon.

The subject of Promised Land is the potential damage of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, on a small Pennsylvania town. …

There is an interesting twist in this story by Folks. According to his sources the film was partially funded by Abu Dhabi.

Could it be that the desert sheiks want to turn American public opinion against fracking so as to ensure their own influence over the gas market?  Abu Dhabi, after all, controls an estimated at 9.4% of the world’s total gas reserves.  How much more valuable will those reserves be if America turns its back on fracking and fails to develop its own energy resources?

Mr. Folks has done a good job on this article. I hope you will find time to read it. He ends his article  with this:

There is every indication that fracking will contribute to that advance in human well-being.  Imagine Americans in 2112 living ten times better than we do today.  That is the real promise of fracking and other new technologies.

And that is the reason why fracking has become an object of attack.  For the left, the real threat of fracking is that it creates wealth that flows into the economy and strengthens the middle class, making it less likely that America will become a socialist state.  National prosperity is the last thing the left wants, because prosperity stands in the way of collectivism.

What the left will never admit is that American energy-independence really is the “promised land.”  Those familiar with biblical history know that the alternative to the promised land is slavery.  And slavery is what the left has in mind for the American people.

So,  how long will the forces of truth and logic be able to resist the forces that would enslave us? I fear for not much longer. For now, at the very least, pass the word to friends and family not to attend this movie. With its title, many religious folks might go to see this movie expecting to see something very different.

Well, now you know what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

  1. Yes our leftist/greenist friends won’t be content until we are all using outhouses, candles and horses. Except, our leftist/greenist friends, as the elite of course, will still have access to forbidden flush toilets, indoor heat, electricity and cars. You see, the elite need these creature comforts so they can think of more ways to keep the rest of humanity in the 12 century.

    In this respect they have a lot in common with our Muslim friends.

  2. Of course first we must be rounded up and put back in the cities. Anyone think these black boxes in cars will not either tax or limit the miles we drive? It will become prohibitive to drive. And of course as an aside they will no doubt be able to track us.

  3. It is impossible to talk about the benefits of energy independence in 2112 when in 2022 – just 10 years away – we will have reached a national debt of $66 trillion. Energy independence in the long future pales in comparison to the contrarian effect of a debt crisis that will raise our borrowing costs to 5-6%, if we can borrow at all.

  4. The Damon film sounds like it is just a better done version of 2010’s “Gasland”.

    I would not be a bit surprised it was financially backed by Arab sheiks with a dog in the fight. Everyone has an angle… Arab sheiks, liberals and conservative and we push our agendas all the time.

    A big immediate concern are rules being decided right by the EPA to “regulate” fracking in both the oil and gas industries. There is a distinct possibility the rules are being crafted to make fracking prohibitively expensive.

    Coal is the cheapest fuel source on Earth, yet the EPA regulations has been so successful at making it expensive that it is being phased out of the electric power industry in favor of natural gas.

    The great irony for “green energy” is that fracked natural gas has reduced U.S. CO2 emissions over the last 5 years and the trend will continue.

    Getting rid of natural gas is like an environmentalist cutting off an arm to make a painful finger stop hurting.

  5. AZ…I have read exactly that…that Arabs did finance the Damon film. Since long ago I have purposefully not supported the leftist loonies in Hollywood with any of my money. I have better things to do than to support them and / or prop up their bank accounts. Most of what they produce is not worth watching anyway. Bunker is on target re: the black boxes. Between those and the Smart Meters attached to our homes and businesses, we are under attack the likes that haven’t been seen since pre-WWII Germany. Now with the great push on gun control…I can only wonder how this is all going to end. Badly, I fear. No doubt.

    Anyway…Jim, have a wonderful Christmas (in case I don’t get back here before then.)!! I am glad to have you, this site, and all of these great web friends at my keyboard fingertips!!

    Keep the faith and keep fighting against tyranny …

  6. I don’t agree with Folks assessment, Jim. Not the last part.

    Do you really think the leftists stop and think of themselves and their agenda as collectivist? They don’t even know what that means.

    The left is against prosperity? I don’t think so. I don’t think anyone is. Fracking and prosperity is the promised land?

    The more I think about what he has written…the more I want to dismiss it as just a rambling rant without substance or proof. The left just wants instant gratification…that agenda is currently winning up to the precise moment when it fails. As it must.

    1. “Do you really think the leftists stop and think of themselves and their agenda as collectivist? ”

      The Left has sheep and a few sheep herders. The sheep herders know what they are doing. It is prosperity for the herders and not much for anyone else.

  7. Whenever I hear the name “Matt Damon”, I think of his retarded puppet from “Team America”. he never disappoints when it comes to spouting nonsensical politically correct lunacy.

  8. The leftists who are promoting this fraud know this is a scam but there are too many useful idiots in the nation who just follow along–and that includes Hollywood–that I don’t think we can hold this off forever. Our children are being taught this as fact from a young age and if nobody works at teaching them the truth it is only a matter of time before the statists win.

  9. The arguments against fossil fuels have never been about the environment. Even when there are economical and reliable substitutes for fossil fuels (nuclear), the left-wing crazies refuse to consider them. As you know it is all about trashing a capitalistic America. Earlier this year, I did a little research about fracking, and wrote a couple of blogs about it. http://gonnasayit.com/?s=fracking . It is interesting stuff, and there is little or no threat to the environment.

    Likewise, as with global warming, there is no global threat. Greenhouse gas global warming exists, but can only account for about one degree of heating per doubling of CO2 concentration. The rest of the scare stuff is all speculation based on numerical models that cannot match actual empirical data.

    So, the real battles are not economic or scientific, but political. The logic and facts are on their side, but the media is on their side.
