Feds blocking more American oil production

It's been clear for quite a while that the only reason America is dependent on foreign oil is suppression of domestic production by agencies of the federal government. In this case, the liberal 9th circuit court of appeals is preventing Shell Oil from exploring leases it has paid for off the north coast of Alaska by the simple expedient of failing to rule on a lawsuit filed by the usual environmental organizations to block the exploration.

This is one of many examples of environmental groups teaming up with sympathetic judges to block energy production. So we can look forward to much higher energy prices and dependence on our enemies for energy supplies, thanks to our own government, acting in concert with members of The Green Religion.
