Russia Needs Higher Oil Prices. Putin Will Blackmail Trump For Higher OilPrices. It's That Simple

We saw it with W. Do I have to spell it out? Wars for oil---with lost American lives and spiraling national debt. Koch Brothers paid to stockpile crude. Alternative energy investments the sole prerogative of China which will be our new lord and master in a couple of decades when the crude runs out, our air and water trashed, our savings used up just buying fuel to keep us war and get us to work .

Anyone who can see the evidence of what Putin has done and who is not afraid---Because he is WHIT and MALE and CHRISTIAN and HATES GAYS---deserves what is coming.

The rest of us I feel sorry for.

It would be cheaper and easier just to gather together a trillion dollars, give it to Trump as a payoff. Fewer lives would be lost. Byut no, the greedy oil industry likes to pretend it makes its money.

1. Great info, thanks for posting these links, too. I don't think

trump will HAVE to be blackmailed, though. Doesn't a Tilerson Sec State appointment point to sanctions being lifted?

3. It won't require such effort. Trump is a lapdog who will do whatever Putin asks.

5. They will pay the Kochs to stockpile a bunch of US oil, taking it from the market

and making the Kochs a fortune at the same time.
