Climate Change Blitzkrieg Coming As Obama’s Other Policy Initiatives Fall Apart


As the Obama Administration comes to terms with its failings in implementing stricter gun control, reaching economic agreements with Republicans, passing broad immigration reform and successfully rolling out Obamacare, some watchers suggest that an executive order blitzkrieg on climate change may be President Barack Obama’s last ditch effort to produce a legacy in his second term.

Late last month, Obama issued an executive order to create new Federal measures to prepare the Nation’s infrastructure to withstand weather-related natural disasters. The President called for the implementation of “engaged and strong partnerships and information sharing at all levels of government” and “risk-informed decisionmaking and the tools to facilitate it” in the fight against climate change.

“The impacts of climate change — including an increase in prolonged periods of excessively high temperatures, more heavy downpours, an increase in wildfires, more severe droughts, permafrost thawing, ocean acidification, and sea-level rise — are already affecting communities, natural resources, ecosystems, economies, and public health across the nation,” said Obama in issuing the order.

On Friday, The Hill reported: “[T]here’s one thing that’s going right for Obama: Executive action on climate change is moving full-speed ahead at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).”

Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) told the newspaper that the President is likely to continue his climate change crusade because his executive order authority, coupled with the EPA’s wide-reaching authority to implement new rules, eliminates many hurdles to the President’s agenda on the issue.

So far, Obama’s biggest climate change directive has been changing carbon emission standards for power plants throughout the Nation. Last month’s executive order called for the creation of a bevy of new bureaucratic entities with names like the Council on Climate Preparedness and Resilience and the State, Local and Tribal Leaders Task Force on Climate Preparedness and Resilience which will be directed to come up with ideas for halting climate change.

The White House also announced the appointment of longtime Washington insider Dan Utech to be the President’s new advisor on energy and climate change this week.

“For the last three and a half years, Dan has been a key player in developing and implementing every aspect of the President’s clean energy and climate agenda,” a White House official said Friday.

Utech previously worked on the Senate Environmental and Public Works Committee and served as Hilary Clinton’s top adviser on energy and environment issues for five years while she was in the Senate.

    The only legacy Obozo will leave is the total mess that will take decades, if not centuries to straighten out

    • Jerry George Dunn

      exactly… we are in for a world of hurt, regardless; and if HilldeBeast wins, as a Country, we’ll be “toast.” I pray that someone with a mouth, attitude, honesty and BALLs, makes Hillary look like the shill for Marxism, that she is. What the hell, has “ObamBi” and she done at all?? Not a damned thing for the people and everything for our enemies. I like Christie.. I know he got next to Obama during the “Sandy” mess, but I remember the old adage: “Keep your ‘friends’ close and you enemies closer.” I will definitely vote for him, if he becomes our candidate in 2016… I want someone to kick the ass out of these “progressive” Bastards!

      • podunk1

        Sorry about that, but Christie reminds me of the Hindenburg.. waiting for a spark. Obama’s legacy has to be life in prison or a short trip to the rope. He’s busy issuing executive orders while his regulatory locust army adds more mind numbing regulations to shred the Constitution. Is there a Civil Right Amendment he hasn’t mocked & defied countlessly?

        On the other hand the House & Senate majority does nothing to stop it. They are the checks and balances of tyranny & corruption, but, as we see, they’re just as corrupt as he is!

        RECALL NOW! Make now until the 2014 election a living hell for them – suitable for trashing this country & freedom.

        • Edward James Almost

          Unfortunately our only hope is the implosion of Ocare , by unfortunately, I mean for the economy. Are any of you with small businesses doing better with Obama? Has business slowed since Odisastercare? I know what most answers will be, NO!!!

        • Jerry George Dunn

          No recalls.. The Dems are hoping to play out the clock, while Morons “count coup”…. That’s right: attack your own Party, so you can make it easy to LOSE, MORONS! I’m so sick of this stuff.. You are a danger to US! Why don’t you just put a Warren or Hillary sticker on your car and get over yourselves? YOU ARE HURTING OUR CHANCES TO WIN! What’s it going to take??? I wish OUR Party had the motivation and savvy to win, like the Marxists do: “Divide and Conquer” should be their motto. They are so good at it.. Like I Vadimir Lenin, (USSR?) we are complicit in our own demise.

      • Motov

        Jesse Ventura/Howard Stern,… At least he won’t mince words!
        And being in no party,…What a shock (not to mention a great slap in the face of both the Dems and Rep.) should they win!

        • Jerry George Dunn

          He would mince no words… I SO agree. He is abrasive and women would run from him.. I’m tired of losing elections..OK? F**k that.

      • Robert Messmer

        If Christie wins, the people still lose since he endorses NSA illegal spying on American citizens.

        • Jerry George Dunn

          He doesn’t “endorse” it per se., He says it is needed, as long as it’s not abused, by the Government.. Ok, we now know, the Government can not be trusted; That’s not Christie’s fault. It’s Obama’s “progressive” design. We are made to think “everything is fine.” We are lulled into a “patriotic” notion that our government is trustworthy. Christie KNOWS that the Washington, DC crowd will do anything, say anything parse words and try to split the one Party feared by the Left: The Republican Party. Look at what Governor Christie has DONE, not what some “Media Spin Master” has said to YOU. The guy’s damned good, won’t “play the Beltway game.” Wake-up. Be very careful, when you attack the one man, who can kill the “Progressive Dream” of control, deceit, and very expensive nonsense. Look at what Christie has done and compare that to what Obama has done. His protégé, Hillary, is standing in the wings to finish us off!

          • Robert Messmer

            Yes, well unfortunately anything that is illegal by definition is an abuse. So listening to Christie say that it is “necessary” to spy on American citizens in the US, I don’t have to rely on any Media Spin Master.

          • Jerry George Dunn

            Will you stop replaying the whole bunch of [expletive deleted] perpetrated by the NSA, designed to distract you!? Are you really that “thick?” The illegalities, that come with Government “over reaching,” outright spying and ‘using’ the People, can ONLY come to light, if we can get rid of the democRATS…. They will try mightily to spit the Party (US), as they try to demonize the next Candidate they confront. Did you learn nothing, as the Media “defined” and “characterized” Romney, before he was even nominated? (May 2012). It took all summer for Romney to get his message out and by then it was too late! He was beaten by the Media, and the same media hid the truth about Benghazi, the IRS, and The NSA to help Obama! This ‘distraction,’ the hallmark of the Saul Alinsky “Rules for Radicals,” is what they do! Can’t you see that? Every Candidate, that dares rear his or her head, will be savagely attacked by the media, doing Hillary and/or Warren’s work for them…See??? It’s a “game:” Christie, “Bad!” and Women “Good!” Don’t be so distracted, that we fall for another “Progressive,” telling us the “Pie in the sky” Bull[expletive deleted]! Please. Don’t let the Democrats define OUR Party.. “TEA vs. Establishment.” Be aware of your true Candidates, not someone created by the ‘campaigns,’ as if this is some damned ‘game’ we’re playing. This is some serious stuff, here folks!!.. We cannot afford any more “Progressivism>” (read “Socialism).

  • HogHeaven

    “LEGACY” HA, HA ! What legacy ? The kind of legacy a criminal would cherish !

    • Jerry George Dunn

      His legacy, while lauded by “true believers” will be a decade of remorse. It will be so hard to stomach, the people who called themselves “Progressives” will scurry and hide, when recognized by their friends. As in post-war, Germany, these Progressives will be viewed as enemies and called “Collaborators” and thus, shunned.

      • Edward James Almost

        I think their punishment will be far worse than that. The damage they are doing to this country should be punishable by death. The funny thing is, a lot of them don’t even know it!

  • Jerry George Dunn

    If he were to die, “naturally,” I wonder how many would mourn or how many would burst into joyous song?… It’s that bad… This person (I won’t call him a ‘man,’) is a “wrecking ball,” for the American economy, our security and our future. His minions, soon to be led by Hillary and her “pal,” George Soros, are actively and deliberately trying to sabotage this Nation. Treason and Sedition come to mind.

  • Edward James Almost

    We already know that trick, sorry , thank you come again!!

  • terryk

    congress needs to put limits on Obama’s use of exec orders. The intent of the EO was for use in emergency situations this pos has carried it far outside the bounds of the original intent

    • Motov

      Congress needs to impeach this criminal, for many crimes he committed.

  • dan

    lovely…now Zeroe can apply all the expertise and subtle handling skills that he’s displayed in handling international diplomacy , the economy, healthcare , websites and documenttation (birthcertificae generation and photoshop) …to the environment….
    I’m sure he’ll have Valorie get right on it

  • TheOriginalDaveH

    The PTBs will be pushing Global Warming right into the next ice age.
    It’s all about Power and Control Folks. Even the God Obama can’t change the weather.

    • Quester55

      Yet again, at last report, HAARP in Alaska has been Operating longer & longer Hours, Before each Heavy Duty Storm, that we’ve had in the last 5 years. weather Control, ? Who Knows!!??

  • Jerry George Dunn

    I am amazed at the political “babies,” who are more interested in getting their way, than helping all of us to win, in 2014 and 2016. You don’t need to attack yourselves.. the Media and Dems will do it for you. But no! You say, “If ‘MY’ guy doesn’t win, I’m going to not vote…” Whaaanh! “Me go home now, Mommy’s calling!” Help your PARTY win… Then WE can change the disastrous course we are surely heading on…
