With advisors like these, is it at all surprising where we’ve ended up?

This gang of thieves, called the Unconventional ResourcesTechnology Advisory Committee (URTAC) is just one gaggle of advisors that Department of Energy Secretary Moniz HAND PICKS to give him (horrible) advice. These people are soaked in so much gas and oil that they must need to walk around carrying fire extinguishers.

I’ve got their 20 page “swan song” to Bobblehead Moniz at the bottom of this post and I’ve marked up the juicy parts. Apparently, this one group of the DOE’s multitude of advisors isn’t going to be funded anymore past this year, but please don’t worry about how they’ll manage. They continue to be strewn throughout the DOE, Interior and the EPA, plus they’ve got their (oil and gas) day jobs. Keep in mind that these crooks are ADVISING the Energy Department on exactly what they want them to do, and, as they brag about in their required FACA database report (below), the DOE has adopted 100% of their recommendations. That makes them A+ students, right? In what world is this even legal? It’s like the Mexican drug cartels telling the FDA and Homeland Security what to do. Or like Bernie Madoff running the Federal Reserve…or having a pedophile run a daycare center, or the advertising industry running the television networks (Oh wait. That’s already happening) Here is their FACA moment of pride:

And here is their member list. Get ready to lose your lunch:

And just to finish off your meal with a nice vintage “unleaded” with just a whiff of corrupt undertones, here is their final report. Notice that they think this type of committee, in general, should not be impeded by pesky Congressional shutdowns or changes of policymaker’s hearts. This bunch of assholes honestly believe that they are WAY too important to be slowed down by, well, anything, and why shouldn’t they? They are running the Energy Dept:
