Energy Secretary Steven Chu Admits Administration Hates Oil Wants $10.00/Gallon Gasoline

Commentary by Jim Campbell

Only and administration that was just beamed down from Planet Uranus could have such twisted logic. Only the complete narcissist Obama could believe this economic strategy would help him maintain his grip on his tyrannical rule.  Wake up dude We the People are fed up with your bony ass.  At $10.00 a gallon gas prices not only will you not win, your fans will be out to draw and quarter you. 

Oh yes, and as far as your green energy plans are going last count they have been heavily subsidized failures. 

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.  I’m J.C. and I approve this message.

Instead of horses, nothing but the best for Obama, the quarter masters will use Hummers.


President Barack Obama’s Secretary of Energy Stephen Chu uttered the kind of Washington gaffe that consists of telling the truth when inconvenient. According to Politico, Chu admitted to a House committee that the administration is not interested in lowering gas prices.

Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich has issued a half-hour video touting an energy plan he claims would result in $2.50 a gallon gasoline. The plan is based on unfettered drilling for oil and gas instead of a reliance on green energy. Gingrich has also savaged Obama’s touting of algae-based biofuel as “weird.”

Chu, along with the Obama administration, regards the spike in gas prices as a feature rather than a bug. High gas prices provide an incentive for alternate energy technology, a priority for the White House, and a decrease in reliance on oil for energy.

In 2008, before he was President Obama’s Energy Secretary, Steven Chu said that:

“Somehow, we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.”

President Obama and Secretary Chu are certainly on their way towards that goal, as gas prices are now double what they were when the President was inaugurated. In a speech last week, President Obama claimed to support an “all-of-the-above strategy that develops every available source of American energy.” The President went on to say that strategy included oil and gas. (when his lips are moving he is lying)

Yet, his policies have not shown a willingness to include oil and gas – even though these conventional energy sources are cheaper and more efficient than their alternatives. The President’s favored “green” energies won’t be economically viable alternatives for decades. We’ve been trying to make them a reality since the Carter Administration, with only minor advances.

Secretary Chu admitted yesterday that reducing the price of gasoline is not a priority for this Administration. The priority lies on finding an alternative for the future. That doesn’t sound like an “all-of-the-above” strategy.

When asked by Congressman Alan Nunnelee (R-MS) if the overall goal is to get gas prices down so that the American people stop suffering, Sec. Chu responded:

“No, the overall goal is to decrease our dependency on oil, to build and strengthen our economy.”

So, yet again, the President’s speech was full on rhetoric and empty on substance.

Allowing gas prices to climb so that “green” energy alternatives appear to be viable alternatives is backwards. Instead, we need to lower gas prices by approving pipelines and expanding oil exploration – including on federal territory – in order to reduce the burden on the American people while the private sector continues to develop alternatives. What we absolutely should not be doing is crippling our economy with high gas prices in pursuit of even more expensive alternatives. If Americans can’t afford gas prices now, how are they going to afford massively more expensive alternatives?

  1. Isn’t this the very stupidity that started this recession snowballing? The Democrats have blamed Bush, but it was the Democrat control of the Senate and House that stopped fuel production and began to blame oil profits and use. It caused the wide spread blame of fuel costs on Bush and evil speculators. And yet everything the Democrats have done is cause speculators to take advantage of an opportunity. And I bet their are more democrat speculators than Republican.


  3. This all makes sense in Obama’s overall plan for America. In “The Roots of Obama’s Rage” I think Dinesh D’Souza hit the nail on the head. Obama is an anti-imperialist who has quietly seethed in a bubbling pool of anti-American loathing all his life. His father was anti-American, hated countries that interfere, or even invest in other countries considering them capitalistic parasites, so when we elect someone as President who writes a book called, “Dreams of my Father,” we should not be surprised at what he does when we hand over the most powerful position in the world to him. Americans were participates in the biggest hustle ever committed in history.

    Personally, I do think the United States needs to get the hell out of everyone’s business. We can do that now on our own terms, or we can do it later by default and in chaos when our economy collapses. But Obama, and his father (if her were alive); if they could say it out loud, would think the collapse of America was the best thing that could happen for the world. They see America as an evil, power hungry, imperialist, global dominating bully and would spend every penny they had throwing the biggest party on earth if America collapsed.

    The problem is, they are only half-right. America, and Americans are none of those things, but our politicians are in fact evil, power hungry, imperialist, global dominating bullies. If America, and Americans, were represented properly by people like Ron Paul, Rand Paul, DeMint, Schiff, then we could be a respected nation, one that other countries admire and look up to for guidance and leadership.

    Make no mistake. Obama is not crazy. Obama is not a socialist. Obama is one smart cookie. Consider who is scarier in a horror movie? The genuinely insane but brute-force criminal, like Jason in the Jason movies, or the calculating psychopathic criminal, like John Doe in “Seven” that is thirty chess moves ahead of everyone? The smart ones are always the more frightening.

    Obama is doing what Obama has had fantasies about his whole life, and his father had before him. To bring America down to its knees so we are no better, no stronger, no wealthier, absolutely no different at all than any other country in the world so we have no power, no influence, no control, no money. He is executing his plan perfectly through a carefully orchestrated systematic method of destroying America’s wealth generating system of Capitalism, expanding the government control base by increasing the size and scope of the welfare state and eroding the last protections available to Americans to fight back by increasing control and influence of the media through corporatism, over the internet through government security agencies and departments that can bypass Congressional approval, and the expansion of the invasion of our lives to understand who the dissidents are and where they are through the evolution and expansion of The Patriot Act and other similarly and recently passed legislation.

    It is a master plan to take the wall of this Republic down, brick…by brick…by brick…and Americans are lining up to help him chip away the mortar in the name of “the children” and “safety” and “the environment.”

    We deserve to lose this country if we do nothing to educate and inform others on how the house of freedom they live in is collapsing all around them.

  4. I’m glad you all found each other. You can entertain yourselves by pooling your collective ignorance. Those of us committed to learning the complex issues facing us and making the tough decisions to deal with them don’t need your counterproductive involvement which appears to consist primarily of name calling. Way to share responsibility and participate in our government, adult citizens. George Carlin’s quote sums you all up quite succinctly.
