Blowout: Rachel Maddow


Charismatic frackers.

Poisoned pets and people.

Creating earthquakes in Oklahoma.

Sleeper Russian agents living in sleepy American neighborhoods.

An unflappable oil executive and future secretary of state.

Russian thugs.

Deepwater Horizon.

More Russians.

A corrupt dictator’s son who loves spending his oil “earnings” on everything but especially Michael Jackson memorabilia.

Rachel Maddow takes on the world, but more specifically the oil industry which lubricates world commerce in her latest book, “Blowout: Corrupted Democracy, Rogue State Russia, and the Richest, Most Destructive Industry on Earth.”

Maddow blends deep-dive research with off-the-cuff humor as she relates events of the past century from the Rockefellers and Standard Oil to the diaspora of the oil monopoly into scattered smaller companies to a brief effort using a nuclear warhead as an oil-finding shovel far below the earth in the middle of America to the rise of natural gas as a commodity.

The book spends most of its pages on more recent events of the past 20 years: the rise of Valdmir Putin and Russian oil, Rex Tillerson as the head of Exxon-Mobil, the development of fracking as an affordable mining measure but one with devastating consequences.

Maddow couches her research in a strong narrative. Maddow takes time to introduce people in “Blowout” so when something happens, readers feel like they know the personalities involved. This is no dry history.

And, again, Maddow tackles a serious subject, one that shapes the world so we can move wherever we wish while working and living in comfortable indoor environments, etc., with grace, insight and humor.

Based on “Blowout” and her earlier book, “Drift,” if Maddow ever decides to get out of TV news, she’ll do just fine as a writer.

    Oh dear, Rachel Maddow has written a book, stop the presses.

    This media jewess will leave no opportunity unused to hit against those who managed to escape from the kosher NWO, in casu Russia. And Europe is about to escape next, thanks to Brexit and rising populism.

    I’ll summarize the book for you, “MUUUUUUUUUH RUSSSSSSSSSSIA.”

    There, I just saved your money and time.

    Neither of the two genius posting above have read the book.If they had, they would realize how dumb
    their comments are.

    Maddow has stated that her family is “very, very Catholic” and she grew up in a community that her mother has described as “very conservative”.

    Early in the Trump Administration I wrote on these pages, elsewhere on the Net and in several emails to R.Maddow about Trump ties to oil and Russia.

    I take no credit for “Blowout”, an excellent read.

    Referring to John Hughes films, Maddow has described herself as being “a cross between the jock and the antisocial girl” in high school.[17] She is a graduate of Castro Valley High School[19] and attended Stanford University. While a freshman, she was outed as a lesbian by the college newspaper when an interview with her was published before she could tell her parents.[15]

    She earned a degree in public policy at Stanford in 1994.[20] At graduation, she was awarded the John Gardner Fellowship.[21] She was the recipient of a Rhodes Scholarship and began her postgraduate study in 1995 at Lincoln College, Oxford. She had also been awarded a Marshall Scholarship the same year but turned it down in favour of the Rhodes.[22] This made her the first openly gay or lesbian American to win an international Rhodes Scholarship.[23] In 2001, she earned a Doctor of Philosophy (DPhil) in politics at the University of Oxford.[24] Her thesis is titled HIV/AIDS and Health Care Reform in British and American Prisons, and her supervisor was Lucia Zedner.[25]

    “Neither of the two genius posting”

    What does that make you Bob?

    Maddow is a disgusting example of presstitute if there ever was one.

  6. Cloggie on Sun, 27th Oct 2019 12:14 pm 

    Rachel Maddow:

    “Rachel Maddow, Surging MSNBC Host, Has Surprising Jewish Roots”

    Note, says the Forward, not Stormfront.

    “Early in the Trump Administration I wrote on these pages, elsewhere on the Net and in several emails to R.Maddow about Trump ties to oil and Russia.”

    So what you’re saying is….”MUUUUHHHHH RUSSSSSSSSIA!” in oh so many words.

    Clinton lost the election, get over it and win the next one. I swear this is even worse then the Obama Kenyan birther hoax at this point. Just give up already.

    Fake comment. I never said that. American media is far superior to almost every other news source in the world. Rachael is a honest, credible source of news and information and I tune into her show on my phone regularly.

    1. Who gives a shit what some media whore says? Certainly not anyone with two or more active brain cells.

    2. No one reads in Amerika anymore. They avoid printed books like the plague. Most cannot read beyond the 3rd grade level anyway.

    3. What is one bitch’s opinion worth out of 7,700,000,000+? Zip! Zero! Nothing.

    4. A sign of the times that she is a popular liar, but then look at the rest of the USMSM media whores today, liars, money grubbers, and worse.

    Dumbed down Amerikans don’t know any better. Thinking is a lost skill in the US.

    BTW: Is “she” really female? Her pic on wiki looks like a male. Sex change? lol

    1. The exceptionalturd does. What a shocker.

    2. Yes

    3. She plays a role, not one we agree is desirable or one we appreciate of course, but, her jew masters do and that is all that counts. To them anyhow.

    4. Yes

    As far as this ‘Blowout’ goes, I seriously doubt she even wrote the damn thing. Likely farmed it out to some ghost writer, and stuck her name on it. RM does not have the intellect for the subject matter. Though I can see from the comments it is likely going to be chok full of Anti-Russian screeds and bias. Imagine that! In fairness, I bet she supplied all the Russia bashing material. She has a lot of that lying around, enough for to fill a set of encyclopedias, or two.

  13. makati1 on Sun, 27th Oct 2019 6:33 pm 

    Anon, I suspect that you are correct. She paid some intelligent writer to do the heavy lifting, and came in at the end to sell the bullshit. Ah well, Amerika at its finest.

    Another day of watching the US decline.

    There needs to be more books written on the Holocaust.
    I’m getting concerned that the world will somehow forget about it.
    You know that any book about THE HOLOCAUST tm would automatically earn a place on the JewYork Times best-sellers list.

    Another book on the sleazy oil industry? Yawn.

    “There needs to be more books written on the Holocaust.”

    We need more books that question and research if that event happened in the first place:

    Anyway. The Russians know exactly what really happened and can be expected to lift the veil after “the End of the American Era”, as CFR-jew Charles Kuchan put it in 2003:

    Russia is ready for revisionism in return for being integrated into the European world.

    “Russia accuses Poland of starting Second World War”

  17. DavySkum on Mon, 28th Oct 2019 7:06 am 

    Robert wasn’t talking to the DavySkum, yet again the sleazy DavySkum has to stick his nose in other’s affairs since nobody desires a conversation with him.

    What a pathetic and disgusting character of the absolute lowest common denominator.

  18. Davy on Mon, 28th Oct 2019 7:09 am 

    Oops, sorry everyone that my previous Moon of Alabama and Zero IQ conspiracy articles about the sanctity of the orange fat man, like everything else I post, turns out to be pure garbage.

    From the “liberal” Wall Street Journal:

    “U.S. ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland told House lawmakers last week that President Donald Trump’s pressure on Ukraine to open an investigation into Joe Biden’s son before a White House meeting amounted to a quid pro quo, his lawyer told The Wall Street Journal.

    Sondland believed Ukraine’s agreement to investigate Biden, his son and an unfounded conspiracy theory that Democrats manipulated the 2016 election was a condition for a sought-after White House meeting with Trump by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, according to the Journal.”

    Let’s face facts, Fundamentalists– if the Bible is correct, we all have Jewish relatives.
    And Rachel is a national treasure. Her ability to assemble disconnected facts into a coherent narrative is unmatched. I wish she were president.
