I decided to look up the word to make sure I have been using it right. One meaning has to do with smoked fish. The other somewhat has to do with deception. The following words are are considered to mean the same or nearly the same thing as the second meaning.
Ruse, blind, feint, deception, subterfuge, hoax, smokescreen, trick, ploy, sham, pretense, and distraction.
Whenever anyone representing Joe says that there are 9,000 leases already approved, we can honestly, say that every one of the above words applies, especially ruse, deception, hoax and smokescreen. Their purpose is to hide the truth and deceive. It is all part of a big hoax. Bottom line, it is dishonest.
Then again why should anyone expect anything else from any FOC, especially ol’ Joe.
Many of those leases have no oil. Anyone who would do the research would know it is sort dumb to drill where there is no oil. Moreover, the FOCs have been blocking the oil people every place they are able using super red tape.
In essence, the FOCs have declared war on oil long before Joe took office. They prefer to buy the oil from enemies and terrorist than to pump it out from under our own feet. There is but one reason I can think of for that. They are also friends of the enemy as well as the criminals.
Can anyone give me another reason?
Speaking of criminals, anyone see hide nor hair of that criminal #1, Fauci. He seems to be hiding these days. Maybe he is getting ready to take off for China, where I am sure they will richly reward him.
