In a new article written by EIR authors Marcia Merry Baker and Paul Gallagher, the case for Barack Obama’s impeachment is made, yet again. This time on the basis of the continuation of Dick Cheney’s national policy of “fracking.”
We’ve included the first few pargraphs here, but see the button below for the whole article.
Fracking is Genocide
by Marcia Merry Baker and Paul Gallagher, Executive Intelligence Review
April 24, 2014 – The killer shortage of food and energy supplies brought about by drought, fracking (hydraulic fracturing), and Obama-backer multi-billionaire Warren Buffett’s financial manipulation of vital transportation infrastructure, must be reversed by decisive action from lawmakers: Impeach Obama. Stop fracking. Sack Buffett. Use Federal powers to ensure that vital supplies have access to transportation and to push through the development of the fusion power-driven North American Water and Power Alliance (NAWAPA XXI). The energy-flux density of our national economy must rise with technological advances, not sink into Hell with “green” Wall Street practices.
The fact of the extreme drought in the Southwest is now widely publicized; but the extent of today’s crisis includes the fact that in Texas, California, and elsewhere in the dry Western states, the “Great Fracking Oil & Gas Boom” is sucking up scarce water for wells; using up limited railroad capacity to haul oil; using up pipeline capacity to convey gas products–especially propane–for export, all while domestic users go short, and pay to the hilt. Chaos is spreading.
In the Northern Plains, the 2013 harvest of wheat, corn, beans, and other farm commodities is overflowing storage capacity, for lack of rail shipment to move out the product. Meantime, next to no fertilizer has been shipped in for Spring planting. Food processors are on a go-slow. Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Corp. controls the largest railroad network serving the entire area, and has huge investments in the companies that are “fracking” oil and shipping it and all its precursors in rail cars by the hundreds of thousands.
From near zero five years ago, “fracking oil” is now shipped at the rate of 1 million barrels/day from the North Dakota Bakken Shale and other basins, largely on Buffett’s Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railroad.
This process, destroying communities and threatening farmers and local dealers with ruin, now constitutes a food supply crisis, and national emergency. The entire process must be stopped. Use of Federal injunction and related measures are called for, in particular to remove Warren Buffett from corporate office at once. Start criminal prosecution.
Fracking is a hallmark Obama policy…
