    Default By Any Means Necessary

    https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/...tity-politics/

    “Who knew that Putin and American anti-fracking groups shared the same goal of reducing the oil and gas output for the United States? Again, progressives call the union of diverse efforts against a common enemy “intersectionality.” Try to imagine the reaction to a group of Russian operatives, secretly bankrolling conservative grassroots efforts to shut down windfarms across the country, claiming that the noise, high profiles, and damage to wildlife were an environmental crime. What would the green lobby think of their Russian-subsidized opponents?”

    The US does not have the monopoly of interference in the governance, and governments of other countries it once had.

    Ah, Victor Davis Hanson. "Conservative grassroots efforts to shut down windfarms"? Torpedoed by progressive collusion with Russia?

    Victor Davis Hansen is making things up. The US is not “nearly oil independent” nor will it ever be. Increased NG and refined oil products exports don’t liberate us from external pressures especially when we do dumb ass things in the world. He’s a conservative pundit and an academic on ancient Greece.

    “Russia and the Persian Gulf monarchies detest fracking, given that the resulting flood of new natural gas and petroleum has tanked their export oil revenues, saved motorists and consumers billions of dollars, and made the U.S. nearly oil-independent and strategically liberated from Russian and Middle East pressures.“
