Update, 7/7/14: Add this to the mix: Five Surprising Places where Fracking Is Taking Off.
Remember our favorite archvillian, Dick Cheney, he of the crooked mouth —
— and he of the new heart, but damn! same as the ‘ol heart — remember Cheney’s SECRET Energy Task Force, convened in early 2001, soon after G.W. was selected, to decide national energy policy? (I mean, geez! He had a lot to do! Had to get crackin’! In order to get the Iraq War going he had to first invade Afghanistan (not sure I ever understood the demented logic of that one, unless it’s just to sell weapons’ systems), and in order to do that he had to create a false flag massive enough enough to mobilize the sheeple: ergo 9/11! — so that he could roll out the Patriot Act, sitting on the shelf for how many years — oh yeah, he sure couldn’t waste any time)
Am I connecting way too many dots? Okay, how do YOU think we got here, from there?
