As the entire nation knows, Governor Palin has been a voice for energy independence for years. She has worked relentlessly to see a natural gas pipeline built that would flow resources from Alaska to the Lower 48.
After all of the governor's hard work and unprecedented success in moving forward in this effort that would not only provide jobs and boost the economy, but would aid in national security--freeing America to rely on the resources God has given us, rather than foreign regimes that don't like us--it seems President Obama has suddenly become interested in energy.
The president wants to take this effort to tap into Alaska's resources to the next level, making it a White House executive office matter.
According to Juneau Empire, Mark Begich, the Democrat senator from Alaska, has "nominated legislative aide Larry Persily for the Obama appointment as federal coordinator. Persily has support from Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, as well."
This begs the question: Has President Obama suddenly seen the light--or is he trying to snuff it out?
Writing for US4Palin, Gary reports:
At first glance, this looks good, right? Obama is finally realizing we need to develop our own resources, after loaning his buddy George Soros’ Brazilian oil company, Petrobas, ten billion dollars to drill offshore in Brazil. And maybe Obama is trying to steal Sarah Palin’s thunder here.
Unfortunately, I believe you’d be wrong, and I believe my colleague is, as well. I don’t think Obama is trying to steal credit for this deal, I think he is trying to kill it.
Frankly, when has Obama done anything to support energy development in America? On the contrary, Obama and his minions have openly worked to thwart any and all domestic development of natural resources.
So what’s the deal?
First of all, let’s face it, that’s how these Chicago thugs work, period. We see it every single day. They strong arm and attack their own people if the don’t tow the line. Ask New York Governor David Patterson how Obama’s gangster tactics work.
Let’s take a quick look at Larry Persily himself. Persily is a self described “blue-collar Chicago democrat.”

Do you smell something fishy?
Gary is not the only one who has taken note of this interesting interest the President of the United States has suddenly developed. Conservatives4Palin has also covered the story.

Almost one year ago, C4P predicted that the president would eventually attempt to take over, and take credit for, Governor Palin's work to get Alaska a natural gas pipeline.
After spending months attacking Palin and obstructing her legislative agenda, Persily got called up to the big leagues. Just like Kim Elton. Funny how that worked out.
Now the president's looking to increase the power of Persily's position.
It's not a surprise that Obama might want to take credit for Palin's gas pipeline. After all, as Palin has pointed out over and over, America needs a source of clean, reliable energy that comes from domestic sources, thereby increasing our national security. But AGIA needs the free market to work. Much as he may wish to claim credit, Alaska's gasline should not become an Obama public works project.
Bryant breaks down Persily's associations as well, also leaving one to ponder what is really going on? Read that article in its entirety here.
Smell anything yet? Apparently Denmark is not the only place where rotten things reek.
