Dr Strangelove and the Oil Pipeline
Well in case anyone didn't understand why the Harper Cons are calling native people and environmentalists "radicals" and "foreign interests."
Leave it up to Tom "Strangelove" Flanagan to explain Big Oil's plan for Total World Domination.
The branding of opponents as "radicals" is part of a strategy to make sure the pipeline gets built, argues Tom Flanagan, Prime Minister Stephen Harper's former chief of staff and an expert on aboriginal issues.
Flanagan said there is a concerted world-wide attack against the oil industry."Shrugging it off, I don't think, is good enough anymore. It's a battle and you have to start pushing back."
Which is at least refreshingly honest eh? Big Oil Uber Alles. But unfortunately, in the case of Canada, The Plan is tragically flawed.
For when Joe "Big Mouth" Oliver says this is "nation building."
"We need to diversify our marketplace. We need to move to Asia to sell our natural resources. There is the potential of trillions of dollars of economic development, this is nation building."
What he really means is, this is the Harper oil pimp plan for Total Chinese Domination.
Beijing’s own state enterprises are among the project’s major backers, and Beijing has been buying up Alberta’s oilpatch at such a dizzying pace lately it’s hard to keep up. In the spring of 2010, China’s state-owned Sinopec Corp. took a $4.65-billion piece of Syncrude. Then the China Investment Corporation, which is run by the Chinese Communist Party, took possession of a $1.25-billon share of Penn West Petroleum. Last summer, the Chinese National Offshore Oil Corporation gobbled up Opti Canada for $2.34 billion. And so on.
Then, last month, Sinopec spent $2.2-billion to take over Daylight Energy Ltd., and last week, Petro-China, with the final push of $1.9 billion, became the owner and manager of the MacKay River oilsands project. This is what Ottawa doesn’t want you noticing.
Which of course doesn't surprise me. Because ever since the Cons stopped calling the Chinese Godless atheists, they've been selling us out like a Banana Republic...
China's Canada, Harper's burro, our Chiquita banana.
Oh boy. You know one thing about The Plan for Total Chinese Domination totally alarms me eh? What are the Chinese going to do when they realize they may have bought the Tar Sands?
But they don't have a pipeline to suck up all that Canadian oil.
Because quite frankly, now that Big Oil is threatening total war.
And Strangelove Flanagan is in the bunker.
I fear the worst....
But here's the good news eh?
If we can brand the Harperites as the sellout Cons. We can destroy them.
Before they destroy us...
