Palin: Big Oil's new champion / editors
30-Aug-2008 (2 comments)

US oil firms have given John McCain three times more declared campaign money than to Democratic nominee, Barack Obama. Big oil contributions to the Republican Party outweigh oil money to the Democrats by a similar ratio.

Sarah Palin hasn't been in the game long enough to have shown all her political colors but on one key issue she has made herself abundantly clear. Oil drilling in the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge......

Sarah Palin's strong support for drilling in the ANWR is no great surprise considering her all-Alaska background. It is hard to win office in the "last frontier" state without backing increased exploitation of natural resources.

Palin's husband is also an employee of British Petroleum - the British oil giant with significant interests in Alaska's oil wealth. That said, Palin, like the new McCain, has come out in favor of reaching beyond Alaska to America's coastlines.


Palin and real Republican agenda: OIL

by Jaleho on

The US political system from special interest group's point of view is divided to two main parties:

1. Big OIL, domestic military industrial complex and NRA lobbies. These groups are represented by the republican party and they would enjoy war anywhere to run the big arms industries.

2.  Israel lobby and thus anti-oil, anti-Arab agenda promoted by the jewish heavy representation in the media and heavy representation in the Israeli occupied US congress,  AND military industrial complex who prefers instability in the middle east and arms sales through Israeli middle men. This is represented by the democratic party.

So, although the two parties have war interest in common, the republican party loves war in Nicaragua or Panama as much as the ones in Asia. But, the democratic party loves the wars that Hillary Clinton for example promotes, in the middle east and south east Asia where the Israeli dealers can benefit most and shape the political landscape of the region to benefit the state of Israel.

So, we can hear democrats push for oil companies to give away more of their profits and bad mouth the Arabs and their oil, the cheap energy that they have built American empire from , while they would not ask the same from arms dealers.They tend to advertise alternative energy,  but mostly the phony ones like ethanol that some wall street big shots can benefit from even at the expense of starving the world.

We also hear from the "environmentalist" pseudo-intellectuals who follow the Zionist media verbatim and cry for polar bears while ignoring millions of people who suffer from the food shortage in the third world countries because of Gore-type propaganda. Not that environmental disasters are not in the horizon, scientist have warned us way before Al Gore got his prize on the red carpet and made movies! But, the environmental issues unlike wars are one good thing that republican and democratic parties have in common for different reasons. The republicans representing NRA and hunting are quite interested in natural parks recently!

OK, that sums  up the two party system in the US for me, and clarifies selection of Palin beyond cheap shot at getting Hillary's voters to vote for A woman!



Jaleho, I agree with you

I agree with you that Palin is a darling of big oil, NRA and those Christian fundamentalists who are also for the environment. I think this is a very cynical choice and I am hoping that American people will be wise enough to reject it forcefully.

By the way, since when has delivering a handicapped baby been considered a virtue? OK, I respect very much Sarah's choice to not abort her baby after she learned about the Down syndrome, but this should be a personal choice (just like her daughter's choice) and not be used for politics. As usual,the religious right is all over this with their usual holier-than-thou attitude.
