Obama Ramps Up His War On America

The Barack Obama regime opened a new front in his war on America yesterday when he unveiled his plans to skirt Congress and cut so-called carbon pollution from existing power plants.

Most in Congress recognize the reality that the majority of Americans have concluded that anthropomorphic global warming is so much hokum and that any effort to further burden Americans with laws and regulations to stop something that doesn’t exist is a non-starter. But the collectivists, progressives and outright anti-human environmental lunatics that make up Obama’s inner circle don’t take “no” for an answer. So Obama says he’s going to regulate coal out of business.

Never mind that the first section of the first article of the Constitution grants all legislative powers to Congress; never mind that temperatures have not risen in 20 years, despite an increase in so-called “carbon pollution”; never mind that carbon dioxide is not a pollutant but is, along with oxygen, one of the two most important gasses in our atmosphere and vital to life; never mind that more regulations on energy will drive up energy costs and the prices of appliances, cars and machinery, and will further cripple the moribund economy and will drive more of the middle class toward poverty; and never mind that so-called renewable energy is not about creating renewable energy but is about transferring wealth, Obama is dead set on  his agenda to destroy the American way of life.

    Obama is doing exactly what he said he was going to do…fundamentally change this nation. The result is that he is destroying it. And, we, the American People, are allowing it!

    The owners of 40% of this nations electricity should give this fool exactly what he wants , all at once . Shut it down and see how much support Obama has .

        It wouldn’t even matter because he expects everyone to feel the hurt except for himself and his family. He tells everyone to tighten their belts, but he and his family go on expensive trips that we’re paying for. He tries to strip us of our 2nd Amendment right, but he and his family are surrounded by armed SS agents everywhere they go. He tells us to inflate our tires and stick to our scheduled vehicle maintenance to squeeze out a few extra miles out of our gas tanks, then jumps on AF1 and burns a few thousand gallons of fuel. The whole thing would be funny if it wasn’t so pathetic.

          That is the mentality of Marxism and communism. Only the small group of the ‘ruling elite’ have it ALL. They get the best healthcare,food,commodities. The majority ..the serving class’ gets the dregs and oppression and poverty.

    • Nadzieja Batki

      But that is exactly what O wants, the owners would supposedly walk right into his trap and he could take the companies over and destroy them.

    • fenix1

      If they say for instance, “we’re shutting down for 1 week for maintenance” that would be a legitimate and plausible reason and if ALL of them would do it at the same time there would be a howl so great that even the “Greenies” would get off their ass! I would gladly go for a week without electricity…could and would for this cause!

    Just to spite his sorry ass I’m going to burn nothing but coal this winter. What a sh_t for brains. Meantime all other nations will burn coal until it runs out. How much more unpopular can this guy get, I mean he’s going to have to live in a different country once his pathetic administration is over and done with. Not that he ain’t used to that since he wasn’t born here, nor did he grow up here. That bad is on the ignorant in this country who have been given rights to vote, but don’t have enough of a brain in their head to saved themselves from serfdom. The religion of ignorance I believe Ben Franklin called it.

    This a-hole is going to put us back in the stone age. Leading the world in new energy ideas and development is not done by shutting down the leading energy technologies and plants currently in existence. This guy should be given a Nobel prize for being the biggest political fraud in the history this country.

    • Elevenarrows

      Actually, I think the ignorant masses don’t care to save themselves from serfdom. They are truly OK with it. As long as master gives them free phones, “pays the mortgage”, keeps the food stamps flowing, and let’s not forget…many of these people get huge tax refunds. I know people who receive in excess of $8000 refunds while I pay and pay and pay. No, I don’t see a sudden increase in morality among those living off of the rest of us. They will continue to vote for the politician that provides the most freebies. These people don’t care about the future. They live in the moment and are very egocentric.

      I manage rental properties. It is common for someone to not have their rent paid around holidays because “I went to the beach for July 4th” or “my grandson had never seen the ocean so I took him” or any other crazy, short-sighted reason they can create. I know it sounds harsh, but I think a return to the days when only those who owned property could vote might be a good thing! It would eliminate the large number of voters who vote solely based on who they think will be the biggest Santa. Those of us who own property, run businesses and pay taxes understand the damage caused by egocentric, short-sighted policies and would vote accordingly.

      • mari

        I was thinking the same thing, but I thought maybe only those who paid taxes should vote (NOT those who get bogus tax refunds) especially about where the money goes. That would put us in charge of the government, unfortunately, they seem to have a mind of their own and would never go for it.

        • libertylover

          Not everyone who gets federal tax refunds votes Democratic, just sayin! If you have a moderate income (~$50,000) and have several children, you get a few thousand dollars back as a tax “refund”. The first time it happened for us, many years ago, I kept rechecking my federal tax return before filing it to see what I had done “wrong”. I agree – it makes no sense to get a “refund” of what you never paid in in the first place, but this by no means influences our votes. We are pro-liberty, pro-Constitution, and pro-limited government, and that is how we vote!

          I agree with the idea of somehow limiting the electorate, in an attempt to plug the hole before our government becomes “bankrupt” (as if it isn’t already). Every election, as we watch the returns come in, I keep saying to my spouse, “people are so STUPID!!!” They really are. Well…maybe “ignorant” and “not properly-educated to think and to reason” would be a more accurate description of the current electoral majority…the predictable result of our public school system?!

          Our Founding Fathers had it right when they established this country as a Republic, NOT as a democracy. It was never meant to be majority-ruled.

          “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the Public Treasury. From that moment on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the Public Treasury with a result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy always followed by dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years.”
          Sir Alexander Fraser Tyler “Decline and Fall of the Athenian Republic”

          • mari

            I wrote this once but I don’t see my comment so my lack of computer skills have trumped my intent once again. I am remiss at the incoherence of my comment. When I referred to “Bogus Refunds” I was in no way referring to anyone who works. I believe that tax returns for children are good things (since it’s money that should have been left in our hands anyway). I was referring to the over 1000 illegal aliens who all claimed the same address with lots of kids who obviously never lived anywhere here and received several million dollars in tax returns. Perhaps I should have said, all citizens who are gainfully employed, should have a say in how it’s spent. I really don’t even want to stop citizens from voting, at all. I am just so frustrated that people are voting themselves access to the money that I work for while they do nothing productive. That doesn’t even address the waste or outright theft of taxpayers monies.

      • Andy

        Amen–please tell me when they changed that law. I don’t remember it being changed so anyone can vote (esp. the O’Zombies–be afraid, be very afraid). I agree that only property owners should vote as they have a legitimate stake in the economy and this country.

        • NObama_Holder_Reid_Pelosi_2012

          These days large portions of property are owned by foreigners in which don’t even reside in the Country. Should they be able to vote also as they are property owners and pay taxes such as property tax and corporate tax for their business.

    • fueler335

      You will never be able to limit voter’s rights. The first time it is attempted there would screams of racism. I am 54 years old and have voted in every election since I was 18 (Ford for president… :) ). This was when I learned about political realities. Ford was just the best of two negatives,although I don’t think Ford would have been a bad president. I resent the fact that you say that only property owners have a right to vote.I know people that own their home that are dumber than a turnip. I have worked hard all my life,paid my taxes and have as much right to vote as anyone in the U.S. I educate myself on the issues and vote accordingly. I have absolutely no problem with showing my I.D. when voting. I have to show it to purchase prescriptions or cash a check. Voting is so much more important than those activities. I would think I would be offended if my “leaders” thought it would be difficult for me to vote because of the incredible hardship it would place on me to obtain proper I.D. I hate watching what is happening to our nation. yobama is the biggest danger we have ever faced. I know we can survive him, and hope we all pull together to heal our country after this as*hole is out of office.

      • http://batman-news.com Jim B

        Never mentioned property owners as valid voter, I too know ignorant property owners, who practice the religion of ignorance. But have lived in this world the same amount of time and I think we are thinking alike. Best to you and yours, keep safe.

      I’ve always Obama-haters are racists, and As usual, I was proven right!

      And you people get on MY case about copying and pasting when you people have the same R-tarded mentality!

      The B/C has signatures, (that can’t be moved around I might add) from his Mother, the Doctor that delivered him and the Registrar. There’s no proof that anyone walking in to the DOH and got a B/C. If they did, why is it dated 8/8/61? Why did the Doctor sign it?

      Why did the HDOH, through their correspondence verify that that is what they had in their binder in the basement?

      Where’s your proof otherwise? Obama is not a fraud, they released his birth certificate, and he is the president of the united states, you think they didn’t look into this? What could they gain from having a black man As President?

      ALL THOSE ARE MEANINGLESS TAKING POINTS .

      Barack Obama a traitor to America =Is Barack Obama destroying America=Barack Obama hate America = Barack Obama a pathological Liar

      long story short NO!

      There is no proof for that.

      I cannot fathom how unbelievably stupid you are.

      Welcome to the new America. Maybe you can all invent a time machine and send yourselves back to the 50’s? A time where you could eat all the racism you want and feel good about yourselves. May your imaginary god have mercy on your hateful souls.

      The only thing that Barack is revealing is just how racist you guys are.

      • fueler335

        You are slooooooooooow, aren’t you? I wouldn’t care if yobama were pink with purple polka dots if he had the nations best interest at heart. It is obvious that he doesn’t. He surrounds himself with liars just as anti-American as he is. If you don’t believe it,I have some oceanfront property in Ohio to sell you.

  • Ranchman

    Idaho State Rep. Curtis Bowers produced and directed an excellent documentary called “Agenda: Grinding America down” which details the Communist Party of America (CPUSA) in their push to destroy America. One of their biggest goals was to destroy businesses through the environmental movement. The documentary is available at http://www.agendadocumentary.com. The first thing ALL Americans need to do is educate themselves on the very serious threat of Obama and his minions, all of them Marxists and Islamists. You might want to also get Glenn Becks “Rumors of War III” which details the Islamic threat in America, available on his website http://www.glennbeck.com. It’s also excellent. America is facing many threats, all of them designed to divide the American people against each other. If we educate ourselves on these issues, we’ll be much better equipped to fight back.

    • Bill

      Hi Ranchman,

      You are bringing up a point that no one else is addressing. Carl Marx and Fredrick Engles believed that capitalism caused pollution (as if communism does not), and they used that to sell their ideas of communism in the late 1800’s. The communist party of America knew in the 50’s that communism would not sell in America and they needed something else to use.

      Alas, the birth of the environmental extremist. Granted, by using common sense technology created by entrepreneurs, we have cleaned up a lot of our environmental problems without killing the economy. But the extremist really has the goal of killing capitalism, and they are doing o good job of it.
      It is kind of a catch 22, the real way for green technology to be implemented in our lives is when it is cost effective. The only cost effective solutions for green technology will come from the entrepreneurial spirit of the private sector driven by the profit motive.
      But the current environmental extremists have made it so difficult to operate a business in the private sector.
      The environmental extremists are motivated by killing capitalism and not saving the planet. But they have done a world class sales job on the public to believe otherwise

    I think the ultimate goal of Obama & the progressives is to utterly & completely destroy the middle class. For decades we’ve been slapped with environmental policies that do nothing but increase our cost-of-living on almost everything! My utility bill is the next highest one I have besides my mortgage. Cars, fuel, those doggone pricey light bulbs, appliances that are supposedly ‘energy efficient’ yet break down far more often than the older ones & require much more expensive repairs when they do–just a few victims of climate regulations. The EPA & its cronies have & are finding ways to bankrupt the middle class, thus finally establishing only two classes: peasants & elites, ensuring infinite power to the latter.

  • Marshall Watson

    Thank you Mr Livingston. You are so correct, this egomaniac is dead set on destroying this once great nation. Government regulation is what is most wrong with our economy, we need to go back to the days of true independent business development. Back to a time when there was no Federal Reserve Bank, it is neither federal nor reserve, unless you consider the fact that the people who run it are reserving our wealth for themselves. Back to a time before the federal government started poking its nose and fingers into every aspect of our daily lives, especially the way we do business, and run our schools. I pray it is still possible to turn our nation around, but given the power that has been concentrated in the central government, especially the office of the President, I just don’t know. There was a time not so long ago that if a standing American President were to be connected directly or indirectly with so much scandal, he wouldn’t have been impeached, he would have been hanged! I know the words I am saying are dangerous for an individual citizen, but I just don’t care anymore. I am sick of our elected officials outright lies, deliberate misuse of power, and going exactly opposite to the real will of the people. I know I am probably already on a NSA watch list, so I’ll make it real easy for you Obama. My name is Marshall Watson, 6806 Sheridan Rd, White Hall, AR 71602. Christian with integrity, patriotic American citizen, constitutional fundamentalist, I am not afraid of you, I know He who holds the future in His hands, because He also holds me and mine. Do what you will because you can not harm me without His permission. I will say as Job did, “Though the worms devour my body, in my flesh I will see Him.” I pray for you Obama, as I do all our political leaders, even the ones who are trying to enslave me. I leave your future in the hands of a just and merciful God, may He have mercy on your soul.

    I have often thought that he was an agent for the Saudis. i.e. Muslim, bowing to the king, 300 million dollars injection to his campaign just before the election etc. Then we have the massive withdrawals that caused the TARP. The king is presently the richest person in the world but the Saudi oil will run out in 43 more years. He needs another kingdom to support him and the mussies. The more he cuts coal the more we have to buy foreign oil. He is keeping the Keystone project from going ahead and has just shut down most of the federal lands to drilling shale formations. Connect the dots and add all of them up.

    President Obama’s gas-powered war on coal industry…

    President Barack Obama’s war on coal is stirring a lot of anger in parts of the country that have long relied on coal as an engine of prosperity. But little of that anger has been directed at the biggest funder of the War on Coal: the natural gas industry, which stands to reap big rewards from the destruction of coal-fired power plants – given the regulatory barriers to nuclear power and the lack of any other real, commercially viable alternatives.

    The lynchpin of the War on Coal is the so-called Utility Maximum Achievable Control Technology rule. The rule was a product of Sierra Club litigation and requires expensive control technology retrofits at coal-fired power plants.

    The cost, according to the Environmental Protection Agency’s own low-ball estimate, is $10 billion per year. A more realistic analysis from National Economic Research Associates found compliance costs of $21 billion per year, with 183,000 lost jobs per year.

    It’s all pain and no gain – except for the natural gas industry, which stands to reap enormous rewards from the forced conversion of coal-fired power plants to natural gas. That’s probably why between 2007 and 2010, Chesapeake CEO Aubrey McClendon donated more than $25 million to the Sierra Club for its “Beyond Coal” campaign.

    A more recent EPA rule following on the heels of UMACT is explicit in forcing power-plant fuel switching from coal to natural gas. It’s the Greenhouse Gas New Source Performance Standards, the latest installment in the Obama administration’s effort to act as if cap-and-trade had passed by transforming the 1970 Clean Air Act into a global warming law.
