IN 2008, just as the world economy was crashing, OPEC decided to reduce the amount of oil they produced in order to keep oil prices high. The free world's economy relies on transportation. And transportation relies on oil.
OPEC is an organization of oil producing countries, most of which are Muslim countries. The two most notable members of OPEC are Saudi Arabia and Iran. OPEC controls enough of the world's oil supply to be able to adjust the oil prices on the world market. If another country starts producing more oil (putting more oil on the market, which would normally reduce the price of oil), OPEC reduces their output, preventing world oil prices from dropping. They try to keep the price as high as possible while undercutting any competing fuels.
In other words, OPEC has a large influence on the world economy. And they do not have non-Muslims' best interests in mind. While the rest of the world crashed economically, OPEC countries reaped a windfall.
One of the things they're doing with all the money is building mosques and madrases around the world, and controlling what message is delivered in those institutions, making sure it is orthodox, fundamental, intolerant, supremacist Islam.
In one smooth move, we can change all this.
All we have to do is make it mandatory that all cars sold in the United States are flex fuel vehicles, which means making it mandatory to install two things: 1) a new fuel sensor and 2) corrosion-resistant fuel lines that can handle different kinds of fuel besides gasoline (but including gasoline). This small tweak costs very little. Car manufacturers in the U.S. already do it for cars sold in Brazil (90% of cars sold in Brazil are flex fuel vehicles).
With this simple policy, a whole new world opens up for us. Why? Because it allows competition. Right now oil has a monopoly on transportation. It is the only viable fuel we can use in our vehicles (97 percent of the fuel used in U.S. transportation is petroleum-based).
Introduce competition to the liquid fuel market and one of two things will happen, both of them good. As companies produce new kinds of fuel and sell them cheaper than oil, OPEC will have a choice to either drop their prices to compete, or lose the sale.
Either way, we win and they lose.
Two organizations are intent on pushing through legislation in the United States to mandate flex fuel cars: NozzleRage and Set America Free. Please support them, use their resources to pressure your representatives, and tell your friends about them.
I'm from the U.S., so these organizations are for the U.S. Please send us the websites of organizations in your country. Either put them in comments or email them to us and we'll put them in comments for you. Let's get this simple fix started right away. Let's choke off the money flowing to Islamic countries. Let's stop the proliferation of madrases and mosques around the world. Let's shut them down and boost our economy at the same time. Are you with me? Let's do this.
Read more about this important imperative: How to Break Both Oil’s Monopoly and OPEC’s Cartel (PDF document) by R. James Woolsey and Anne Korin.
Here's a couple of excerpts from the article:
The unique strategic importance of oil to the modern economy stems from the fact that oil has a virtual monopoly in the global economy’s very enabler — the transportation sector (contrary to popular belief, at present only 2 percent of U.S. electricity is generated from oil, and conversely only about 2 percent of U.S. oil demand is due to electricity generation.) A century of a transportation sector dominated by petroleum — almost all of the world’s cars, trucks, ships and planes can run on nothing but petroleum products — has led to an acceptance of this domination as the natural order and oil’s status as a strategic commodity as a fait accompli. As a result, instead of viewing oil’s strategic value as a problem that needs to be addressed, when it comes to energy the focus has been, from a foreign policy perspective — as articulated by the Carter Doctrine — on ensuring uninterrupted access to oil including by military force if necessary. From a domestic policy perspective, we have concentrated on policies that increase either the availability of petroleum or the efficiency of its use.
For a cost of less than $100 extra as compared to a gasoline-only vehicle, automakers can make virtually any car a flex fuel vehicle, capable of running on any combination of gasoline and a variety of alcohols such as ethanol and methanol, and in the future butanol, made from a variety of feedstocks. These can include agricultural residues and grasses, animal and municipal waste, and even carbon dioxide (as Japan’s Mitsui Chemicals plans to do) — elegant possibilities for using reform of transportation to deal with greenhouse gas emissions. There are many possibilities in the works — indeed, alcohol does not just mean ethanol, and ethanol does not just mean corn.
At present, the U.S. domestic alternative fuel industry faces a blend barrier — non flexible cars can only handle up to 10% alcohol fuel, a capacity the domestic industry has already achieved. An open fuel standard requiring new cars to be flex fuel vehicles, which can handle up to 85% alcohol, will eliminate this blend barrier and, beyond encouraging the domestic industry to expand, make it politically realistic to open developed world transportation fuel markets to alternative fuels imported from developing countries.

Let's make this legislation a reality now. It's practical, it's simple, it uses already-existing technology, and it will strike a decisive blow to the third jihad.
