New Stansberry video ad: Gas/oil boom will expand Obama's power, leading to a third term
Drudge Ad for Stansberry's Investment Advisory ^ | November 9, 2012 | Porter Stansberry

Posted on 11/09/2012 11:41:17 PM PST by AZLiberty

This ad from Stansberry just appeared on Drudge, predicting that the economy will boom in Obama's second term, giving him the leeway to expand his power so far as to enable a third and maybe fourth term. To save you the trouble of watching/listening to the whole video, here's a summary: Obama is in the right place at the right time to take advantage of the forthcoming oil and gas boom due to fracking and horizontal drilling technology. Spindletop (1901) made possible the expansion of presidential power under Teddy Roosevelt. The East Texas field exploited by H.L. Hunt (1934) led to the end of the Great Depression, expanding presidential power under FDR. Today, according to Stansberry, the oil shale boom is even bigger: "20 new Persian Gulf fields right here in the U.S." and "The U.S. will outperform Saudi Arabia by the end of the decade." Chemical companies are now relocating facilities back to the U.S. because of the boom here in natural gas production, and soon in oil production.

This will be a huge gift to the Obama administration, and a huge opportunity for Obama to squeeze political contributions from thousands of productive companies. Shakedown city, leading to American socialism, by the same process that Venezuela's oil wealth led to Hugo Chavez's rise.

The video is an ad for his newsletter, so all the specific investment recommendations are anonymized by Stansberry, but are based on the current gas boom and the near-future oil boom

Goldman Sachs see the U.S. as the leading oil producer by 2017. Good for the U.S., but far better for Obama and the Democratic Party. U.S. will actually strengthen its superpower position. The number of active oil drilling rigs has already gone through the roof. The collapse in natural gas prices will soon be followed by a collapse in oil prices (oil inventories in the U.S. are already at a near-record highs).

Gas is already displacing oil and coal as fuel sources. Using natural gas can save a big-rig trucker almost $20K/year in fuel prices. Switching millions of trucks to natural gas can save over 1 million barrels of oil per day. The market will eventually equalize the price of gas and oil, by increasing exports and consequently increasing prices.

Exports of natural gas will put Obama in the catbird seat, building his personal power around the world (a la Putin and Chavez). Millions of Americans will applaud the extension of Obama's power because they'll be getting more free stuff. Socialism will gain even more favor, leading to a third term for Obama.

Investment advice: you can make money by investing in natural gas and oil. We can't avoid socialism: almost everyone will soon be feeding at the government trough. But you can make money through private enterprise, by investing in the tool-makers and the infrastructure needed to get oil and gas to market (as in the past, Britain and Royal Dutch Shell profited from the discovery of oil in Indonesia by building the Suez Canal.) We need a huge investment in LNG terminals and tankers. Stansberry recommends an unnamed shipping company as a "sure thing" and another unnamed company that is the only company that is building LNG terminals for operation in the near future. Obama will decide who gets the license to operate the terminal, when he gets good and ready -- i.e., when the political donations are large enough.

A third way to make money: invest in an electric company who will soon see much lower energy prices, hence much larger profits. 900 of the next 1000 power plants will be natural gas rather than coal.

A fourth way: invest in the takeover of an Israeli offshore natural gas producer (ATP Oil and Gas, ATPG) who is still undervalued, because the company is bankrupt. But buy the assets, not the company, for pennies on the dollars, by buying the company's bonds as "distressed debt".

A fifth way: huge new (35 billion barrel) "secret" shale oil play.

One report is called "Global Oil Value Monitor", and shows valuation analysis for all the companies Stansberry is tracking, with a focus on assets, not stocks. The decline in oil prices will hurt stock prices, so buy "huge tracts of land" with oil and gas under them.

Sorry for the sales pitch (I have nothing to do with Stansberry), but maybe I've saved you the hour needed to watch the video. I thought y'all might enjoy the red meat at the beginning.

There is a constitutional amendment limiting presidential terms to two.

He ignored the Article II natural-born citizen requirement, so why should he let a silly little amendment stop him?

I know. The Constitution didn’t hold FDR back. Threatening the Supreme Court got him where he wanted to go. National popularity made it possible, which is Stansberry’s point.

If we do have an economic boom that would be wonderful. I am not one to have sour grapes, however there is more to a country than a good economy, you need a strong foreign and domestic policy, along with a moral social agenda.

As for the term limits, there is no way an ammendment could be ratified in less than 4 years as I can think of at least 13 states that would be opposed to it.

I’m almost 62. Let the payments come to me while I fade away. The next generation of my family would love to see obama get 4 or 5 terms. And they’d like to seal the deal today. Obviously they don’t give a damn so why should I? If obama gets 4 terms and the economy booms as he’s turning it social, good for the next generation. They can pay the fiddler. I’ll be dead.

Are you implying that FDR got around term limits? Because presidential term limits didn’t exist then. They were put in because FDR had run four times.

No such implication. He ignored the then existing Constitution to push through national make-work programs and social security.

Per Salon.com this is the group that accidentally sent an email to a list of Newt Gingrich supporters they had obtained saying that Obama would win a second term and the only question was whether he would win a third.

The Constitution did not limit Presidential terms until it was amended in response to FDR.

That dealt with interpretation of the Constitution, and it was because he had some New Deal legislation knocked down that he threatened the Supreme Court, a threat that cost him to take a beating in the congressional elections.

We have four more legal years of Obama, no reason to speculate on anything after that.

Whether you are willing to admit it or not, there are major differences of legitimate opinion as to the meaning of the natural-born citizen requirement.

There is no such ambiguity about a two term limit.

This ad could be considered satirical comment. Obama’s policies as far as “fossil fuels” go has been quite the opposite of this sales pitch and got very meek attention as part of Romney’s campaign. In fact Obama just closed off a bunch of acreage to fracking exploration.

That’s what I was thinking. What coming boom in oil and gas? Obama intends to destroy America’s most plentiful energy resources in favor of wind and solar.

A fifth way: huge new (35 billion barrel) "secret" shale oil play.

just Google "Green River Formation" check out the US Geological survey report

3 trillion barrels of oil...equal to the worlds total known reserves....1 trillion barrels recoverable with current technology.

The greenies acting through the EPA and Salazar will never allow this. A post of FR indicated the O has shutdown oil shale work on federal land and the EPA has moved against fracking, though the EPA has lost in court. Not to worry, the EPA will falsify some evidence, find a friendly (corrupt) federal court, and stop fracking cold. If the pubbies had won the ideas promulgated by the article would have come to fruition. Now, not until the marxists are thrown out of office.

An improbable economic boom would put Zero in the running for Anti Christ - it’s predicted that the end times will be preceded by a period of prosperity and peace. While I think he is one of Satan’s minions, I believe he is the one who precedes the Anti Christ because there seems to be no way there will be real peace for Israel (and the world) with his policies. The one who “turns things around” after him is more likely to be the real deal.

There was no 22nd Amendment when FDR got a 3rd term.

Nobama will have to throw out the Constitution to get any more than 8 years. Not saying he may not try, just saying lots of patriotic Americans will be standing in the way and if somehow he gets around the 22nd, that will give free rein for Texas and other States to ignore the secession restriction and let the libs and their ComeYets eat cake.

The way this is going, they can be Prez of the 8 United States left, for as long as they want. The rest will be re-forming and fully recognizing the original Constitution.

How long nobama or biteme can be Prez more depends on how soon the ComeYets starve or freeze without very much oil and gas or national income.

I’m going with the suggestion that Michelle Antoinette will conduct Barack’s third term. Although it wouldn’t require overriding the Constitution, it’s equally scary. Perhaps by then, however, she will have had enough multimillion dollar vacations, and will just hang up her Goodyear-brand boob belts.

What are they going to do now with that mansion in Hawaii?
