Obama’s jihad on energy

This was a WH response to the energy petition on his war on coal.

Embracing an All-of-the-Above Approach to American Energy

Since taking office, President Obama has been committed to an all-of-the-above energy strategy for America. It’s a strategy that’s rooted in the idea that we should take full advantage of all of the energy resources that we have, while ensuring we do so in a safe and responsible way.
After four years of this strategy, its impact is clear. We have greater energy security now than any time in recent history. We have doubled our use of renewable power from wind, solar, and geothermal sources. Imports of foreign oil have fallen to the lowest level in decades. Domestic oil production is surging and America is currently the largest producer of natural gas in the world.
At the same time the President has made clear that he understands that coal has played a critical role in our country’s energy portfolio for decades and will continue to be an important source of energy in the future.
The President also believes that America must take a leadership role in developing and manufacturing technologies that allow us to burn coal more cleanly and efficiently. Achieving that goal will also boost our economy, promote public health, and position the United States as the leader in the global clean energy race.
That’s why President Obama has invested nearly $6 billion in clean coal technology and research and development – the largest such investment in U.S. history. Notably, this strategy has attracted over $10 billion in additional private sector capital investment. And these investments are already making a difference. For example, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance, the United States leads the race to develop the world’s first large-scale carbon capture and storage (CCS) demonstration project.
The investments we are making in cutting-edge, clean coal technologies are not only vital to the future of this industry, but also to the larger goal of taking full advantage of America’s energy resources.
Tell us what you think about this response and We the People.

Here is the petition:

End to the War On Coal, end the job killing policies of the EPA and require an economic impact analysis of new policies.

The Obama Administration through its EPA is destroying the coal industry of this country. To date, tens of thousands of coal mining and related jobs have been lost due to this ill-advised war against American energy.

We, the undersigned, call upon the Obama Administration to end this job killing war on coal, to rein in the EPA and require an economic impact assessment published prior to the enactment of each and every new policy and regulation.

Created: Nov 11, 2012Issues: Energy, Job Creation, Regulatory Reform

Reply to Obama’s all the above statement.

“Since taking office, President Obama has been committed to an all-of-the-above energy strategy for America. It’s a strategy that’s rooted in the idea that we should take full advantage of all of the energy resources that we have, while ensuring we do so in a safe and responsible way.”

Moratorium on off-shore drilling? Federal land off-limits? Dragging his heals on this pipeline. Constant interference in drilling and obstruction on fracking.

Is that what he means by “Taking full advantages of our resources”? What he has done is politicized them, and took full advantage of the politics, then used them and our resources as a lever against us – coal being the prime example.

“After four years of this strategy, its impact is clear. We have greater energy security now than any time in recent history. We have doubled our use of renewable power from wind, solar, and geothermal sources. Imports of foreign oil have fallen to the lowest level in decades. Domestic oil production is surging and America is currently the largest producer of natural gas in the world.

After four years, what’s clear is his support the most expensive gas and oil prices in history. And the EPA is out of control, next it will tax the rain. Any new producition is largely due to Bush politcies he takes credit for. Solar and geothermal are not helping the gas at the pump or transportation costs.”

Greater energy security? Is that what you call it when energy is holding us, our households and economy hostage to some radical agenda?

“That’s why President Obama has invested nearly $6 billion in clean coal technology and research and development – the largest such investment in U.S. history. Notably, this strategy has attracted over $10 billion in additional private sector capital investment.”

One only sees you doing for energy what you did for healthcare…driving up the cost, and forcing mandates and rules of compliance. More energy security?

“All of the above approach” is actually some of the above, and regulated into oblivion. And it means wistfully throwing dollars at green energy, helter skelter, and wasting huge amounts on failed companies without return. Is that an “investment”? In fact, we pick up the tab when they do fail.

“That’s why President Obama has invested nearly $6 billion in clean coal technology and research and development – the largest such investment in U.S. history. Notably, this strategy has attracted over $10 billion in additional private sector capital investment. And these investments are already making a difference.”

So spending 6 billion on research to force coal companies out of business is an investment. The real private sector that is spending gets results while he takes credit for that. Driving the cost of coal skyward while cutting our supply and use does what? Making a difference? Yea, driving prices and regulation upward and manipulating the market.

Further, the object of the petition was about- this administration’s systematic destruction of the coal industry through EPA and overregulation, coupled with the dysfunctional energy policies. All compounded by the rising costs of energy, and his stubbornness about the Keystone XL Pipeline in particular – a project that won’t cost us.

You made no mention of reining in the out of control EPA. And what about that economic impact assessment, prior to every new policy and regulation? A complete and total non-response you gave it. This is not a campaign debate where you just throw out your fluffy ideas while dodging the questions. This is America’s energy and security at stake — not your personal political toy.

Obviously the war on coal and jihad against energy continues.

Energy and Archie were fodder for jokes about Carter but Obama can make Jimmah look good.

    Good post Bull! That is one big whopper of a lying ass delusion speech no doubt written and or approved by Attila The Jarret. I lost count how many bullshit lies there are in the speech. You nailed the truth about Team Traitor’s real energy plan drawn up by the Department of Environazis, so I really have nothing to add except good job exposing Team Sumbitch. I guess the Traitor Party has had so much success with their war against innocent babies they’re just running with the same game plan with their war on American made energy.

    Funny thing about All In The Family; Norman Lear (a liberal from hell) actually created that show to make fun of conservatives and make us look stupid, dumb and out of touch with reality. He made the Archie Bunker character as over the top as possible to make conservatives look as badly as possible. Unfortunately the outcome was not what Lear expected. Conservatives like me loved the show and Archie!

    Oh yeah; King Sumbitch makes Billy Beer Carter look like one of our best presidents ever and Lord knows that takes some doing….

      Dave, that’s right, I forgot how Jarrett signs off, or writes, most of his words. Its just one lie after another with Obama without addressing the point. It is giving it more credit than it deserves by reponding to it. But someone should so he doesn’t think he got away with another pass.

      The only place I differed with the petition is that they call it a “war on coal”. He’s declared “war on energy” of all kinds — unless it is the kind that fits his little special interest agenda, the kind that costs more to make than its worth.

      Hey, Dave, I was thinking the same thing, how the object was stereotyping conservatives. Ha ha it really kind of backfired, especially if you look at meathead today. What a piece of work, and he was pretty asinine then too. I’ll take one Arch over a room full of Meatheads anyday. 🙂 My uncle and I used to sit and watch that show and laugh. (something you can’t say for many shows today.) You’d think the progs would have learned a lesson from Caater, but no.

        Bull, Obama plus Jarret = a campaign of misinformation. Hell; I guarantee they’ve got people being paid on our dime and their only job is to keep track of all the lies to try and stay on point. FYI…guess Susan Rice didn’t get that memo! 🙂

        LMAO…meathead…oh he was one useless liberal on that show and that meathead disease has only gotten worse in him over the years. He’s got it so bad his head got fatter and pushed most of its hair out!

        Please don’t get me started on the shitty shows they put on TV these days that are suppose to be comedies. Every damn one is a social indoctrination show that isn’t even funny. I must say though I got a real kick watching Charlie on Two And A Half Men. Hell; that little green dude in the Geico commercials is funnier than the so-called comedies. ,

          Dave, LMAO, the Gecco strikes again. (even if he has an accent) I guess we get to see this reality show in Washington, which seems to be on a record-long run. I admit I get my shares of laughs with Gene about their nonsense. Its like Sanford and son without the junk biz. Only Obama’s telling us we are going to have “the big one”. Ol’ Sheen does have something the father doesn’t have, humor. Lord, I hope Martin doesn’t go into politics….any further.

            Bull, ever heard of the reality show The Biggest Loser? If not; it’s a reality show about overweight folks having a competition to see who can lose the most weight. And no…I’ve never watched it.

            Any who; the name of that show reminds me of us! We are the biggest losers under the f*cked up leadership of King Sumbitch. Or maybe even the movie Liar Liar where Carey can’t tell the truth about anything…sounds somewhat familiar to our situation.

            “Sanford and Son”…LMAO! Now that was a funny as show and it wouldn’t surprise me a bit if the trailer trash First Bitch doesn’t have a junk yard behind the White Mosque right beside her old shinny, silver double wide trailer.

            Oh Lord; if I had to pick between Martin and Charlie as our next prez I think I’d have to go with the drunk, drug addict! At least he’s got an excuse…

They are on the dole for the rest of their lives, living it up. And no one will be able to shut them up.

              LOL. Martin wouldn’t even get along with the current libs in there. We’re doomed as it is.

    Well, hell, bull. It’s like anything out of the BECS’ mouth. ALL lies. All the time. This prick has done NOTHING to make America energy independent. NOTHING. Well, unless you call pissing away $ 500,000,000,000 nothing, that is. The drop in oil imports is SOLELY because HIS half-assed policies have driven economic activity down, not as much is needed. Factories, trains, trucks, ships, airplanes, hell, if they aren’t being USED, they require NO energy sources. F^ck him.
