Communist Democrat Party Calls For Nationalization of Refineries

House Democrats call for nationalization of refineries

Fox News

House Democrats responded to President's Bush's call for Congress to lift the moratorium on offshore drilling. This was at an on-camera press conference fed back live.

Among other things, the Democrats called for the government to own refineries so it could better control the flow of the oil supply.

They also reasserted that the reason the Appropriations Committee markup (where the vote on the amendment to lift the ban) was cancelled so they could focus on preparing the supplemental Iraq spending bill for tomorrow.

At an off-camera briefing, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) said the same. And a senior Republican House Appropriations Committee aide adds that "there were multiple reasons for the postponement" including discussion on the supplemental. But the aide said there was the thought that Democrats may wish to avoid a debate today on energy amendments.

Here are the highlights from briefing: ( Per Pergram-Capitol Hill )

Rep. Maurice Hinchey (D-NY), member of the House Appropriations Committee and one of the most-ardent opponents of off-shore drilling


We (the government) should own the refineries. Then we can control how much gets out into the market.
Hinchey on why they postponed the Appropriations markup


I think there aren't enough votes for the Peterson amendment. It wasn't taken up (the Interior spending bill) because of the omnibus Appropriations bill. That's the main focus of the Appropriations Committee.

Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-IL)


They (Republicans) have a one-trick pony approach.

Rep. Nick Rahall (D-WV), Chairman of the Resources Committee


You cannot drill your way out of this.

Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA), chairman of the House Select Committee on Global Warming


The White House has become a ventriloquist for the oil and gas energy. The finger should be directed back at them. They had plenty of opportunity to (arrange an energy policy). But they did not put an energy policy in place.



The governors of California and the governors of Florida are going to scream this is not the way to go.



There are a lot of arrows in the President's quiver that he decided not use.



What we do has to be in the interest of the American people. Not major corporations.



It's like when I talk to my kids. Before we're going to talk about dessert, we've got to talk about what's on your plate. I hope I'm a little more successful with the oil industry than I am with my kids.



There are so many red herrings out there they might as well construct an aquarium.

From House Majoirity Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) when I asked him if the markup was cancelled because of potential Democratic defections on the Peterson amendment..

"No. The reason the markups aren't going through is because we're trying to get the supplemental on the floor tomorrow."

Andfrom a Senior Republican House Appropriations Aide..

"There were multiple reasons for the postponement including ongoing negotiations on the (supplemental) and a
(Democratic) wish to avoid debate and votes on the energy amendments.

Wild Thing's comment.........

Ever since the 1950s and 1960s...the Democrat party has been taken over by the Communist party slowly but surely. Now they are full blooded Communists. They simply know they can't attempt to impose the Workers' Paradise unless Obama is President, they maintain control of the Congress, and the SCOTUS has a clear Liberal majority. If that happens, the Constitution would be a dead letter and we would have to fight for our freedom.

And this was a week ago with socialist communist Maxine Waters:

Maxine Waters Wants to "Nationalize" the Oil Industry
Maxine Waters is so stupid she doesn't even know what the proper term she is looking for is. It's "Nationalize".

This comes to mind........Son's of Liberty song from Johnny Tremain after the Boston Tea Party

"One nation under CITGO?" We have an obvious radical SocialistS movement here. What's next?
This is a wake-up call so "To your battle stations!"

The Lazu, babe, was on Cavuto yesterday and all she said was the government should take over the oil companies and anything else they can get their commie hands on, besides the Oil companies make too much money.

Rep Hinchey was the one I saw in the news clip saying, the government should take over the Oil Companies. And of course the that Half-wit from Los Angeles Marxine Waters.

So now it appears that the cat is sneaking out of the bag. The democrats want to take over the Oil companies, control the prices as they see fit and control Health care. Two of the bigger ticket items in the country. They control those two they will control the country, forever.

They not only want to choreograph the elections they want to write the ending too, of course in their favor.

Going with this scenario, the democrats will let prices get to the point of causing excruciating pain for the American consumer and then come to the rescue with the plan to take over the Oil companies. This along with Health Care would make their control complete. This has been in the works for years, they have demonized the Oil companies for years now the fruit of their labor is coming to fruition.

If they manage to pull this coup off we will be on the fast track to Socialism. It is all beginning to make perfect sense now.

One more thing, watching the Sons of Liberty, THAT is what scares the hell out of the democrats, is the inconquerable spirit of the American patriot.

I don't think the 'Real American People' has ever lost that spirit. It has been dormant for awhile but the awakening is coming, again.

Darth, yes it is a wake up call. Still so many don't even pay attention, it just does not fit in their lives to care about what goes on in the world.

Mark clapping my hands well I am glad I posted it then. heh heh Sons of Liberty, God bless them all.
Sure glad we had them back then.

I agree Mark, I sure hope the left does not pull this off. Maybe it takes something like this for the rino's to step to the plate and the conservatives to speak out enough is enough. I sure hope so.
