Hillary’s vitriol for miners

Hillary now lectures Trump on the campaign trail that “When you are running for president, you better mean what you say.” How’s that work for Hillary? She told her rally: “I will stand up and speak out for every American that he attacks and insults.”

Clinton: “We’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.

So she meant what she said. Oh, then she apologized by saying it was “taken out of context from what I meant.” She didn’t mean it? No, it was in context the way she meant it. The fact is since 2009 Boone County, W Va has already lost 4500 jobs.

The problem she has is the same one Obama had with “bitter clingers.” (which happen to be the same people Hillary is having problems with) It comes down to the same thing:

Barack Obama was speaking frankly to supporters, saying something popular with them. Hillary was saying what is popular with her supporters and Dems. It happens to be very offensive to the people she is speaking about. But who cares about them?

See, on one hand they know that message is received with cheers among supporters. On the other hand, it is intentionally insulting to the people he or she are speaking about. She merely slipped by giving the wrong people the real message. Now anyone can see how divisive their politics are. Their agenda requires the sacrifice from other people.

Then she expects to buy off the people she is attacking, coal companies and miners.

It is funny how they never say such a thing to bureaucrats in Washington: “we’re going to put all you out of business.” Oh, that wouldn’t go over well. How about a “retraining program” for old career politicians and bureaucrats? (there’s an expensive program)

She claims that she wants to throw 30 billion in aid at miners. Meanwhile, she also wants to pump in 60 billion to prop up energy alternatives. “Renewable energy” is very expensive and requires a lot of money. She’s only upset for taking heat over it. Stand up?

CFACT: Out of Control & Lawlessness

Out of control


CFACT

Friend,

Is our government out of control?

Unelected bureaucrats are seizing control of our energy industry, killing jobs and hamstringing our economy.

No sector appears safe.

CFACT’s Paul Driessen lays out the staggering facts at CFACT.org:

“No one even knows how many Executive Branch agencies there are – estimates range from 60 to 438 – much less how many new rules they implement and impose each year. Officially, [CEI’s Clyde Wayne] Crews says, they issued a staggering 3,554 new rules in 2014, while President Obama signed ‘only’ 226 new laws enacted by Congress. Worse, of the 53,838 (!) formal final regulations included in the Federal Register from 2001 through 2014, only 160 (0.3%) received a ‘cost-benefit’ analysis; we have no idea how the rest affect us.”

Ironically, President Obama is attempting to invoke the rule of law as requiring a vote on his nominee to the Supreme Court.  Yet the Constitution requires no such thing.

“The Constitution is not a living organism,”  Justice Scalia reminded us,  “It’s a legal document, and it says what it says and doesn’t say what it doesn’t say.”

Take a look at the full report Paul Driessen has compiled at CFACT.org.

He makes a frightening case.  We need to reduce the size of all this government and get it back under control.

Craig Rucker
Executive Director

 

Read Paul Driessen’s report: http://www.cfact.org/2016/03/23/washingtons-despotic-lawlessness/

Washington is out of control. Legislators, judges and unelected bureaucrats want to control our lives, livelihoods and living standards, with no accountability even for major errors, calculated deception, or deliberate, often illegal assaults on our liberties and on citizens who resist the advancing Leviathan.

These themes animate Republican and conservative politics because they are happening – regularly. [more..]

 

Years back, Fmr jurist Sandra Day O’Connor said that about 85% of SCOTUS cases deal with federal regulations, despite all the public attention certain cases receive.

War on coal, West Va front

What’s left to do but pray, for the damages inflicted on states and people in the coal region?

Daily Signal

CHARLESTON, W.Va.—There’s little separation between church and the fossil fuel industry in West Virginia’s coal country. Still reeling from recent mine shutdowns, the state legislature has set aside Jan. 31 as a “day of prayer for coal miners.”

On Sunday, a congregation of pastors, businessmen, and lawmakers will seek divine intervention in one of the nation’s hardest-hit coal economies. Doubtless, though, many will ask for deliverance from what they consider a man-made crisis.

http://dailysignal.com/2016/01/27/west-virginia-turns-to-prayer-as-obamas-clean-power-looms/

Even if the day is past, keep on praying.  Well, this administration won’t be any relief to anyone. Obama is not going to stop. He’s done more damage than King George could have ever done to us.

Obama Kidnapped America

The US and American people are being held hostage to Obama’s personal political agenda. You can stop reading there because that’s the whole point in a nutshell.

As a matter of his personal political ideology we see country collapsing around it. The Left can’t compare it to Bush and say it is the same thing. The only suitable comparison is to Putin. But even that does not work because Vlad is acting in Russia’s interest, whether you agree with what he is doing or not. Putin does believe in his country at least.

With Obama the only thing that matters is Obama’s ideology, corrupt as it is. Any means to the end. So now we see Obamacare collapsing. Not a problem to Obama. 12 out of 23 states had their co-ops crash. The initial seed money is lost. Silence from Obama. The agency said enough people were not forced into the ObamaCare by loosing their employee insurance. Jonathan Gruber admitted the plot was to lie to the people just to ram it through. Obama basically said what’s it matter, so what? He sends earthquakes again into medical coverage. Did he say anything?

His comrades have declared a war on cops. Again, not a problem for Obama. Even when the FBI director tells us that police are backing off due to all the social chaos and cop-killing, so crime is up. Obama says you cannot cherry pick data or use anecdote to make public policy. But Obama is doing exactly that: cherry picking and using anecdote to make policy.The FBI is not making policy but stating the trend, facts.

Obama declares the Keystone Pipeline dead. The Climate Caliphate is gearing up for a year-end push of their agenda. All he cares about is his environmental agenda. Meanwhile, months back his own administration contaminated a pristine river and region in Colorado.(an interstate disaster)  Obama said nothing. He was not up in arms firing people. No, it was business as usual: lie and make excuses. First they denied the amount and damage.

He told the EPA to go ahead and roll out his anti-business agenda and war on coal regulations, despite whether it is Constitutional. Who cares about the effects, or their impact on people? He weaponized the IRS and used it against his political opponents. He said there is not a smidgen of corruption. then his DOJ declared there was nothing to prosecute Lerner for.

This all and government is just an extension of Obama’s personal ideology. And he’ll go to any end to force it on the people.

Invasion of illegal immigrants, Obama’s executive orders, his forced amnesty, gun control, racism, riots, and even his scandals are all a product of his personal political agenda.

Whatever you think about all that, one thing is clear: Obama is holding America hostage to his own, personal political agenda.

Same old song and dance

It’s been a little while since I did an essay, and pontificating is really not in vogue at the moment. I’ll bust the boundaries and meet in the middle with personal commentary on this process that looks more like helter-skelter than an election year roll out. Plus a rant.

First off though I’d compare the situation to 2012, and most of the same issues are in the mix. Coincidence. How many years now have we been running on ObamaCare, political dysfunction or corrupt beltway politics. Frankly, I am sick of hearing the same things about upcoming elections: it’s this issue or that. It may always be about it but in the aftermath “it” never gets addressed. Next election.

When you do think you got a mandate on something at the polls, you are disappointed to learn later on that the election did not mean what you thought — or should have meant. We send people to congress with a message but that “tin can & and string” magically turns into a fundraiser speed-dial campaign once they hit Washington. So we get letter after letter of what they are concerned about, with reasons for raising money for their campaign coffers. Who doesn’t have a pet issue to pander for dollars about? Pick one, any one.

If I could sum up the political climate across the board it’s a lyin’ and cryin’ campaign. Lying about what they’ll do and crying for mo’ money.

So with that as the backdrop, its pretty hard to be optimistic about the people’s business. The subliminal message is expect what you have always gotten. We heard “if we change Congress things will change.” Have they, you decide? We heard “we will repeal Obamacare.” We heard that will not stand with a change in leadership. We heard Obama will finally be challenged or stopped. Executive tyranny will be opposed. (Benghazi, IRS, Iran, ISIS, Israel, amnesty, same sex marriage, 1st amendment, drilling, Keystone, VA hospitals, nominees, cronyism, scandals.) Well, all meant to keep our hopes up. We even had our hopes in the process and courts. How many Independence Days have we celebrated while wondering if that sacred covenant must be renewed? If election IOUs we’re given were frequent flier miles, then we would have been home-free long ago.

Is it our fault?

For years we could have only looked back at ourselves saying we get the government we deserve, and we’d be right. We’ve allowed it and brought it on. But now I think we are a little past that. We may stand accused for a lot and haven’t been vigilant, however, can we really be blamed for the entire current condition? I think not. We told them and did our best to hold them responsible. We sent them a message that we aren’t going to take it anymore. But afterward we endure a relapse of the same systemic failures we’ve seen for over a decade.

The standard answer is always, “if you don’t like it vote them out next election. That’s the process.” No kidding? After the fact, right. But the damage can’t be undone easily.

Many of us have been waiting, hoping, praying for something different. We always hear “next election” and that’s where we put our emphasis. So maybe now, this time, it finally is “next election.” If so, I hope it’s like Groundhog Day and keeps happening over and over.

Why do I think that is against the odds? I’m not really sure. But this year one candidate came in different from the cookie cutter politicians, and from an unlikely place. You know which one I mean, and it isn’t Bernie Sanders, with the initials DT.

But let’s back up a moment. Trump has made noises about running for years. He was an almost in 2012. Last election it stirred curiosity. Naysayers said he wouldn’t run and they were right. I was dismissive about his prospects then. I didn’t think he would make much difference anyway. He was not my favorite.

Remember Newt at South Carolina?

When Newt Gingrich ran he was not an odds on favorite either but something happened in South Carolina that made us take another, closer look. It was that question from the media which Newt turned into his moment. Against all odds he shot up and made everyone take notice. Sure, it didn’t last or turn out well. Maybe lightning in a bottle cannot be repeated at will. But it did happen for a moment in South Carolina, where the sky opened and people took a deep breath, just for a moment. They were on notice. When media blushed and the blame turned on them it caught them off guard. It didn’t last but it was a spotlight on the whole process while it lasted.

Alluding in his South Carolina victory speech to elites and media influence Newt said, “But we do have ideas, and we do have people and we proved here in South Carolina that people power with the right ideas beats big money.” Or so we’d like to think. We’d like to believe the right ideas do win, too. Incidentally, Romney’s answer to SC was to turn up the heat against Newt, who probably wasn’t prepared for the barrage. (cue attack ads)

Years ago, I used to hear the line: you dance all night someone has to pay the fiddler. They’ve been doing a lot of dancing in DC.

One of the worst things IMO has been that we were led to believe they were going to do things, namely resist Obama’s agenda, pursue accountability, hold spending, oppose amnesty, restore the separation of powers. What difference at this point has it made? And they wonder why people are angry with Washington? It’s been almost a year and we still hear talk. So then comes Trump but they take issue with Donald for pointing it out.

It’s already been said if this much effort they use to oppose Trump were focused on holding Obama to account, like they said they were going to do, then we would see fruits from their labor. But no, instead Obama is going on now another victory tour for his Iran deal disaster. He’s taking an international bow while they cast Israel to the curb. And Republicans gave him fast track authority. It’s a one lane highway, or a freeway.

Obama now says from Ethiopia that: “In 18 months, I’m turning over the keys, I want to make sure I’m turning over the keys to somebody who is serious about the serious problems that the country faces and the world faces.” Say what? Now he’s the guard for our safety or security, after making a miserable deal with Iran, saturating government in radicalism, scandal upon scandal, and watching ISIS explode across the Middle East. Who in the hell does he think he is? This must be some kind of a joke like… “Live from Africa, its Obamerika!”

So is there anything new here? Have our efforts been fruitful? Rather than oppose Obama’s radical agenda Republicans give him Fast Track. Amnesty without a whimper. Republicans poured gas on the flames instead. They’ve given but haven’t gotten a damn thing back. Oh, we have gotten these public attacks and vengeance from Obama, and threats. Now its a nuclear deal with Iran on the table. Do we really have an irrelevant Congress like Obama promised to do — at State of the Union no less. He’s rolling out the EPA jihad. He’s declared a war on energy, and war on the economy.

Yep, we had elections on issues. Now we’re going to campaign on most of the same things. How many years has Obamacare been an election issue. In Live from Obamerika debut, Barry claimed the outrage and disagreement with his Iran nuke deal was just to divert attention from Trump. Say what? He must think people cannot do more than one thing at a time? That’s what he hoped: that people would be too preoccupied with election politics to pay lip service to his Iran giveaway. The UN rubber stamp was a nice touch.

Speak loudly and carry a big threat

That should be the new motto for the Marxist, militant left.

Michele takes to the campuses to exact her vengeance on America — structural racism in particular, since that is the left’s new code word no matter who is in office.

And in the face of all of that clamor, you might have an overwhelming instinct to just run the other way as fast as you can. You might be tempted to just recreate what you had here at Oberlin -– to find a community of like-minded folks and work with them on causes you care about, and just tune out all of the noise. And that’s completely understandable. In fact, I sometimes have that instinct myself — run! (Laughter.)

But today, graduates, I want to urge you to do just the opposite. Today, I want to suggest that if you truly wish to carry on the Oberlin legacy of service and social justice, then you need to run to, and not away from, the noise. (Applause.) Today, I want to urge you to actively seek out the most contentious, polarized, gridlocked places you can find. Because so often, throughout our history, those have been the places where progress really happens –- the places where minds are changed, lives transformed, where our great American story unfolds.

Then came the lecture on social justice (their definition) and the get out to vote message. Is that all they care about: politics, elections, and political power? Some “struggle” that is.

So get out there and volunteer on campaigns, and then hold the folks you elect accountable. Follow what’s happening in your city hall, your statehouse, Washington, D.C. Better yet, run for office yourself. Get in there. Shake things up. Don’t be afraid. (Applause.) And get out and vote in every election -– not just the big national ones that get all the attention, but every single election. Make sure the folks who represent you share your values and aspirations.”

Raw raw sis boom bah!
Hold them accountable? Unless you elect Hillary Clinton, then ignore accountability just like now. And while she’s running, give her a big wet-kiss pass.

If Michele was pounding the bigotry of racism, social justice, and revolution; then Obama is pounding the Global Warming propaganda just as arrogantly hard to Coast Guard grads.

“Climate change will impact every country on the planet. No nation is immune. Climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security, an immediate risk to our national security, and, make no mistake, it will impact how our military defends our country. And so we need to act — and we need to act now.”

“Many of our military installations are on the coast, including, of course, our Coast Guard stations. Around Norfolk, high tides and storms increasingly flood parts of our Navy base and an air base. In Alaska, thawing permafrost is damaging military facilities. Out West, deeper droughts and longer wildfires could threaten training areas our troops depend on.”

“You are part of the first generation of officers to begin your service in a world where the effects of climate change are so clearly upon us. Climate change will shape how every one of our services plan, operate, train, equip, and protect their infrastructure, today and for the long-term.”

So let me combine Obama’s cliff notes for the military. Do not talk about or mention Christianity or Jesus. That gets you in big trouble. Do put faith in the religion of global warming. Swear on the altar of climate change, talk about it all the time. Mission #1.

 

Well, Obama had already done his own rage routine earlier.

HOLD ON TO YOUR LILY-WHITE BUTTS !!!

Oh don’t worry, Barry, we will… we are! (he couldn’t even say it himself)

Guess who’s talking and organizing in the White House over Hillary’s emailgate? No surprise Valerie Jarrett is at the center of acton, once again.

NY Post: Valerie Jarrett Leaked Hillary’s Private Email Use to Press

by Katie McHugh — 14 Mar 2015 | Brietbart

Vengeful Obama confidante Valerie Jarrett went through back channels to leak Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server to the press, an explosive new report reveals.

The New York Post‘s Edward Klein reports that a source familiar with Bill Clinton said that the former president told him: “The Obamas are out to get us any way they can.”

Jarrett blamed the Democratic party’s 2014 midterm losses on the Clintons’ insinuations that Obama’s unpopular policies, including executive amnesty for foreigners gobbling up American jobs, made the president an “albatross” around the reigning party’s neck.

Jarrett, Obama, and Obama’s wife greeted Hillary as a triumvirate of black liberals at the White House after Democrats got thrashed at the voting booth. Under the watchful eyes of his wife and closest senior advisor, Obama told Hillary, the former first lady of Arkansas, in no uncertain terms he would remain “neutral” in the 2016 election — signaling he would not, in fact, support the Clinton candidacy that the media call “inevitable.”

Ambitious Democrats are scheming to kneecap a Hillary candidacy before she declares she’s running.

More at Brietbart

It will surprise few here that I have a twist on that take. I don’t dispute what is happening. But wait, again Jarrett has been given wide berth. Who is she to be making the call for Dems on who should follow Obama — acting with impunity and no push back from anyone? She’s up to our necks in the Iran deal. She was no doubt heavily immersed in Benghazi and IRS scandals, and the EPA rules or environmental policy.

Now she is making the call for Obama’s successor, or so they plan. This unelected Chicago political operative came to DC with more power and influence than anyone else in Washington except Obama. And again, Bill Clinton declares who is out to get the Clintons. (first the Republican canard then Jarrett) Who would you rather believe if you were only given the two choices, Bill or Jarrett? I’d have to go with Bill. (bad as that is)

UN on climate: tough job, struggling on

UN Climate Chief: We Are Remaking The World Economy

Daily Caller — 2/5/15

The United Nation’s climate chief says that reordering the global economy to fight climate change is the “most difficult” task the international body has ever undertaken.

This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model, for the first time in human history,” Christiana Figueres, who heads up the U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, told reporters.

“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for the, at least, 150 years, since the industrial revolution,” Figueres said.

“He[Obama] has not only spoken about his commitment both to his national agenda on climate change, but also to the international process, and has been quite clear in his political leadership,” Figueres said, touting the EPA’s success cutting carbon dioxide emissions from power plants.

Of course there could be a reason that it is so difficult. (I for one am happy it hasn’t proved easy) But nothing deters them. It is necessary for government to control all markets. Climate Change is code for control and change the economic system under global despots.

And they are complaining it isn’t easy?

Not only do they detest resistance to their agenda, they want to make it impossible. We should start calling it the climate change caliphate.(aka Climate Caliphate)

Obama’s War of Women

This means Warren: Obama backs challenger to Hillary

By Edward Klein July 6, 2014 | NY Post

President Obama has quietly promised Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren complete support if she runs for president — a stinging rebuke to his nemesis Hillary Clinton, sources tell me.

Publicly, Obama has remained noncommittal on the 2016 race, but privately he worries that Clinton would undo and undermine many of his policies. There’s also a personal animosity, especially with Bill Clinton, that dates from their tough race six years ago.

A former Harvard law professor and administration aide, Warren would energize the left wing of the Democrat Party just as Obama did against Clinton in 2008.

Thanks to her outspoken stand against big banks and the top 1 percent, Warren is the darling of progressives. She won her Senate seat thanks to millions of dollars in donations from outside Massachusetts, including from rich environmentalists and Hollywood celebrities. …/

More http://nypost.com/2014/07/06/this-means-warren-obama-backs-challenger-to-hillary/

The war is on it seems. What else can be said? If it means it takes another slap at Bill Clinton while dissing Hillary, that’s just another reason to support her. Is Valerie Jarrett now in charge of the Democrat Party? She seems to be the self-appointed Czar.

I heard MSNBC applaud Warren campaigning for Tennant in West Virginia. They took issue that W Va, who once supported Dukakis, now favors Republicans. Yes, they believe she is the one to rectify that situation. The people that declared war on energy want to win back W. Virginia. Can even Democrats follow these “bob and weave” politics?

Their reasons, according to Wa Po:

1. Tennant needs every Democratic base voter to turn out
2. Tennant needs the money. (only had 1.5 mil on hand)
3. Warren’s economic populist message is a nice fit for the state. Yes, Warren is more liberal than the average West Virginian. And, her views on coal are not in line with most residents in the state. But, on economic inequality — the issue with which she is most closely associated — Warren is likely standing right with most West Virginians. (West Virginia was the third poorest state in 2013.) “Our job is to fight for the families of America,” Warren said at the Tennant event. “Stitch up the tax loopholes so that millionaires and billionaires pay at the same tax rate as the people in this room.” That’s a message that can work in West Virginia.
4. The event was in the Panhandle. West Virginia has moved heavily toward Republicans over the past decade or so. But, the entire state is not solidly Republican. The eastern Panhandle, which includes the town of Shepherdstown where the event was held, probably has more in common with Washington, D.C. than Charleston, West Virginia.

“None of the above means Tennant is going to win. She’s a long shot. And long shots need to take risks. This one makes political sense,” says Chris Cillizza.

 

There you have it, the rosy optimism for why Warren was a great fit for Virginia voters. Just the one to speak to them. Well, that percentage on the extreme Eastern border that leans Liberal anyway. What’s not to like? And she’s their presidential poster-child?

Don’t laugh, they are serious on both. Forget that Dems want to nuke the coal and energy industries and their extreme anti-gun, anti-second amendment, abortion ideology that comes with them. Insulting. One can only hope it’s not “change they believe in”.

Weird science and broken borders

Obama goes way out on a limb to declare global warming is real because “science is science”. Well, except when it’s not. But Barry can believe in anything that might benefit his political agenda. Weasel Zippers has the story.

“The good news is that the public may get out ahead of some of their politicians,” Obama said, suggesting that as people see the effects of weather disasters like hurricanes and droughts, they might begin to change their minds.

“Those start multiplying, then people start thinking, ‘You know what? We’re going to reward politicians who talk to us honestly and seriously about this problem,’” he said.

News flash for Obama, science and facts are in: the border is being flooded. But I don’t see him concerned about that. O and his pen put out a big “open house” sign and strange how science and math confirms the results. He calls for no emergency actions to combat that.

And unlike Global Warming, that responsibility is in the Constitution. As much as the modern Left sees human beings and population as a huge threat, and cause of every problem we face, it’s amazing how they could not care less about the border.

You’d think anyone would be worried about those numbers and what it portends for our future. Where’s the sustainability plan for that? Where is the strategy to reverse the harmful affects of faulty borders? Meanwhile, Obama also has the largest carbon footprint of any president in history.

Now here’s a real hockey stick

In early 2011, 14 percent of all unauthorized immigrants were from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.

In 2011, nearly 3.1 million Central American immigrants resided in the United States, representing close to 8 percent of all immigrants. The Central American born accounted for nearly 8 percent (3.1 million) of the country’s 40.4 million immigrants in 2011. This population has grown more than 60 times its size since 1960, when about 48,900 Central American immigrants resided in the country.

From 1960 to 2011, the number of Central American immigrants and their share of the U.S. immigrant population increased rapidly (see Table 1). At less than 50,000 in 1960, the population more than doubled in the 1960s, tripled in both the 1970s and 1980s, and again nearly doubled in the 1990s, reaching a 2-million mark by 2000 and then a 3-million mark by 2010. The Central-American born share of the U.S. immigrant population also increased – from less than 1 percent in 1960 to nearly 8 percent in 2010. Between 2010 and 2011, the number of immigrants from Central America remained largely unchanged.

As of 2011, approximately 39 percent of the 3.1 million Central American immigrants in the United States had entered since 2000;

The science is settled on how they’ve made the problem worse while talking up amnesty.

Total illegal population
Take Texas, for example: it had 1 million-ninety thousand illegals in 2000, increasing to 1.79 million in 2011. (and add 3 more years to that, plus this most recent uptick over the last months) No doubt Texas’s number has doubled from 2000. Reports are running at a thousand a day.

Yet all they talk about is global warming, ice, polar bears, rising sea levels, hurricanes, and UN reports. But the statistics are loud and clear on their denial about the illegal immigration problem. Sustainability anyone?

While he uses his pen to try to regulate the environment and lower rising sea levels, he uses his pen to increase the levels, and problems, of illegal immigration. The same pen.

You wanted a crisis, Obama? You got one. It’s time people “get out ahead” of Obama and politicians who incubated the problem. I’ll dub him ‘the doctor of weird science’.

I have a “dream”, too. It’s called Constitutional government.

Oil boom to global warming bust

Obama’s Energy Secretary: Oil boom boosted economy — but we’re focused on ‘global warming

By Valerie Richardson | The Washington Times | Saturday, May 31, 2014

GOLDEN — The booming oil industry has been one of the few bright spots in an otherwise sluggish economy, but Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz says that the days of fossil fuel are numbered as the administration focuses on climate change.

Mr. Moniz, who spoke during Democratic Sen. Mark Udall’s energy forum at the Colorado School of Mines on Friday, said the increase in oil production “has had enormous economic benefit” by boosting the economy and helping correct a lopsided trade imbalance.

“I want to emphasize: The increase in oil has been again a great boom economically, lowering our imports, but we are focused on lowering our oil dependence,” said Mr. Moniz.

Oil imports have been declining as domestic production surges and fell to below 7 million barrels of crude per day in January for only the second time in 14 years. Meanwhile, the Commerce Department reported Thursday that the economy contracted for the first time since 2011.

“Why we are committed in the first place to this reduction in greenhouse gas emissions goes to what probably many in this room understand very, very well: the mitigation of the risk that we have from global warming and climate change,” said Mr. Moniz.

The secretary appeared in Colorado two days after he toured Louisiana Gulf Coast oil and gas operations with Sen. Mary Landrieu, another Democrat locked in a tough reelection battle. The visits also come with the Obama administration poised to announce Monday strict new standards on power-plant carbon dioxide emissions.

 

They never talk about the “risk” or affects of that so-called “mitigation” effort, like on the economy. The radical “greenhouse gases” are emanating from Washington, specifically the White House. The repercussions and affects of regulation are not a risk or worry to them. What about the risk their war on energy, including the XL Pipeline, poses? Destroying the economy under the guise of “Saving the planet” is job one.

Zero Hedge

As if the official news that the US economy is just one quarter away from an official recession (and with just one month left in the second quarter that inventory restocking better be progressing at an epic pace) but don’t worry – supposedly harsh weather somehow managed to wipe out $100 billion in economic growth from the initial forecast for Q1 GDP – here is some even worse news: if one excludes the artificial stimulus to the US economy generated from the Obamacare Q1 taxpayer-subsidized scramble, which resulted in a record surge in Healthcare services spending of $40 billion in the quarter, Q1 GDP would have contracted not by 1% but by 2%!

Unsettled Liberal Hysteria

Charles Krauthammer attacked the “Myth of Settled-Science” and labeled Obama the “propagandist in chief”. Talk about hitting the nail on the head. No wonder Libs try to shut him up, so bad.

But even having their own radical crew in the White House and controlling the Senate, you would think that would pacify liberals. No, it only exacerbates them if they don’t get everything they want. They repeat the term the science is settled and that (any)debate is over. Challenge any of their conclusions and that is what you’ll hear.

In his article, The myth of ‘settled science’, Krauthammer says:

None of this is dispositive. It doesn’t settle the issue. But that’s the point. It mocks the very notion of settled science, which is nothing but a crude attempt to silence critics and delegitimize debate. As does the term “denier” — an echo of Holocaust denial, contemptibly suggesting the malevolent rejection of an established historical truth.

But welcome to the alternative reality of the progressive left. As my friend likes to say, they think they can repeal reality. (that’s their stand and their sticking to it.) The funny part is to call their self-labeled political enemies “deniers”. As science teaches it always wants certifiable proof. That should make scientists “deniers” by their nature. And it could make science an institution of denial.

But better than that, think of all the things the Left denies. For a crowd that accepts the “hockey stick” of global warming as a threat, they have an awful lot of denial. Denying Islamists’ agenda, denying effects of Obamacare. They deny the threat of fiscal crisis. They argue against the severity of the fiscal problem, as something that more spending will solve. It is akin to believing carbon is the biggest problem in the world, then calling to double the amount of carbon in ten years. That’s the equivalent. Their answer is always spend more money, it should be no surprise.

Their hysteria is far from settled; it’s fluid and flows in ebbs, but can always escalate at the swat of a fly. It has to outdo the last hysterical outrage. It’s on a collision course with reality. When faced with reality, it snorts and reverts to name-calling and the Alinsky tactics it is known for. It reflexively calls for the power of federal government to oppose their foes and opponents and silence them. It has an incessant dependency on big-government.

What is not settled is Liberal hysteria, its always looking for the next opportunity to be offended. Progressives reactions match or exceed the hysteria.

According to Progressives: “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for!”

As Krauthammer says, we want a cleaner environment, and improve efficiency and resources. But the left would gladly prevent our use of resources and anything related, including the XL Pipeline.

Climate-change proponents have made their cause a matter of fealty and faith. For folks who pretend to be brave carriers of the scientific ethic, there’s more than a tinge of religion in their jeremiads. If you whore after other gods, the Bible tells us, “the Lord’s wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit” (Deuteronomy 11).

Obama came out to rail against Republicans in a press conference, and lectured us on strengthening the infrastructure. The next day, the administration announces Kerry and the State Dep. needs more time to study comments on the Keystone XL Pipeline, putting off the decision until after the elections.(5 1/2 years is not enough) All convenient to raising money from outrage, and whooping up Liberal hysteria.

War on CO2

The world according to the Liberal orthodoxy (aka. progressives)

    Plant life needs Co2…
    Leftists declare war on Co2…
    Claim to be saving the planet.
    And they call us “flat-earthers”.

 

I think that traces all the way back to the Garden and eating the forbidden fruit.

The serpent said to the woman: “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”[Gen 3:3]

Today the Left says (paraphrasing) ‘Was there really an Adam and Eve? Didn’t we evolve from a microbe or something…. don’t you know? That mutation called human beings have been multiplying and destroying the earth ever since.’

Notice any similarities?

Romans 1:25

“Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.”

Gen 1:26 — Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals,[a] and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

The Left: Man is created from the image of animals. We shall put plant life and animals over human beings. Plants survive on Co2, and you shall not create Co2. Let us regulate Co2. And you shall worship Creation.

Today news reports say we are on the verge of hitting 400 pp/mm of Co2 in the atmosphere — an all time record, they say:

CO2 Levels Already Topped 400 PPM This Year, On Track To Cross Threshold For A Month

From Climate Central’s Brian Kahn:

Last year, atmospheric carbon dioxide briefly crossed 400 parts per million for the first time in human history. However, it didn’t cross that threshold until mid-May. This year’s first 400 ppm reading came a full two months earlier this past week and the seeming inexorable upward march is likely to race past another milestone next month.

“We’re already seeing values over 400. Probably we’ll see values dwelling over 400 in April and May. It’s just a matter of time before it stays over 400 forever,” said Ralph Keeling in a blog post.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/03/18/400-ppm-co2-levels-_n_4985580.html?icid=maing-grid7

It says that temperatures will rise 8.6 degrees over the next hundred years. Melting polar ice will drive cold jet streams farther south producing snow, but winters will be unusually warm and earlier springs with longer, later falls. And they have problems with our faith-based beliefs.

All that seems almost a certainty, given their vast knowledge, but balancing a budget? Now there’s a non-computable problem.

Immeasurable amounts of Co2 were emitted in creating this post.

How far can EPA go?

 

From CFACT — Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow

Unlimited EPA?

Is there any limit to how far EPA can go?

EPA is promulgating new regulations at an astounding rate.  It is expanding its power by stretching environmental laws beyond the recognition of the legislators who adopted them.

When regulatory agencies enlarge their power, they distort our constitutional system of checks and balances.  When EPA moves beyond sound science and policy, it burdens our fundamental private property rights and distorts and slows our economy, killing jobs and stifling industry.  Sadly, the country receives no meaningful environmental benefits, despite the staggering costs imposed.

James Madison wrote in Federalist 48 that, “it will not be denied that power is of an encroaching nature and that it ought to be effectually restrained from passing the limits assigned to it.

The job of restraining government falls to the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court recently heard oral arguments and will render decisions on matters which we hope will place EPA in check.

CFACT senior policy adviser Paul Driessen briefs us on what’s at stake at CFACT.org.

Paul and other legal scholars recently drafted two legal briefs which CFACT submitted to the Court.

It is time for the Supreme Court to do its job and as Madison told us, “restrain” EPA from “passing the limits assigned to it.”

For nature and people too,

Craig Rucker

Obama’s Outer Limits

Obama probes the “outer limits”

Jonah Goldberg had a piece in NRO:

The Shrinking Imperialist President

Somehow, Obama manages to be both. [excerpt]

Of all the time-honored failings for which we criticize sitting presidents — by “we” I mean pundits, academics, and other members of the chattering phylum — two charges stand out: imperialism and shrinkage. Usually it’s one or the other. /…

The flip side of the shrinking presidency is the imperial presidency, something we’ve been fretting about, by name, since at least Franklin Roosevelt and in principle since the Founding.
Politically, what is remarkable is that Obama seems to be doing both at the same time. His “Year of Action” — intended to dispel that lame-duck scent — is simultaneously Caesar-like and pathetic. (Maybe the presidential seal should depict that dude from the Little Caesars pizza commercials?) Last week, he announced that he would unilaterally raise the minimum wage for federal contractors seeking new work. Only 1 percent of the workforce makes the minimum wage, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and vanishingly few of them work for the federal government. This probably explains why the White House wouldn’t give an actual number when asked how many people his bold action would benefit.
Yet, at the Democratic retreat last week, Obama threw cold water on the idea that he could do much more on immigration from the Oval Office, saying there are “outer limits to what we can do by executive action.
Some of his unilateral actions are a bigger deal, of course. The Environmental Protection Agency’s decision to treat carbon dioxide as a “pollutant” is an outrageous expansion of executive power. But Obama doesn’t tout that as a bullet point; he let the EPA take the political heat for that decision a while ago. His multiple unilateral revisions to Obamacare run the gamut from desperate tinkering to outright lawlessness. But flop-sweat panic to compensate for executive incompetence and to fend off a rout in the midterms doesn’t exactly project presidential boldness either.

There are “outer limits to what [I] can do by executive action”? (…why say “we”)

Well, you wouldn’t think so by what the Dictator says in speeches, and how he acts. Limits? I somehow cannot see Obama, in a selfie, fretting about limits – especially over immigration when he already took executive unilateral action. The Obfuscator told us he has a pen and a phone …. let the unilateral actions begin, uh or continue.

Or maybe he meant that there seem to be outer limits to executive action but that he will probe and penetrate those. Does anyone think Obama sees any limitations?

Like the old TV series, the irony is there don’t seem to be any limits. And he keeps writing new episodes every week, be it epa, or the FCC putting monitors in press rooms, or his climate change agenda, or on spending. Are there any limits in that mindset? As the series slogan said, “reaches from the inner mind to the outer limits”.

LA Times 2/14/14:

In a closed-door session, he promised to help any candidates who needed him during the coming campaign season but notably did not repeat his predictions that the Democrats would regain control of the House this year, according to participants.

He also sought to tamp down pressure from his party for executive actions to limit deportations, telling lawmakers that his power to do more in that area was limited.

People need to understand that there are “outer limits to what we can do by executive action,” Obama told the lawmakers, according to aides who attended the closed-door meeting.

Earlier, Democrats met with Vice President Joe Biden, who indicated that the administration realized Congress would not vote this year on proposals to give the president so-called fast-track authority for negotiating trade treaties.

The trade proposal has been a divisive issue for Democrats, and party leaders would prefer to postpone it until after this fall’s election.

Obama is the last person the US should trust with “fast-track authority” – if anyone. Let’s see what he manages with his trusty pen and phone. (and endless outer limits) There seem to be no outer limits on his globul warming agenda, or his war on energy. Shrinking presidency? No signs of shrinkage yet. Reality never inhibited Obama.

One way street gone wrong

When I look at our federal government I see all kinds of religious similarities. (Actually more than similarities) It wants to tell us when and what we can worship.

In Art VI is states that no religious test shall be a qualifier for office. And yet the same Constitutional Republic makes its Supreme justices swear on the altar of Roe v. Wade as settled law in order to serve on the nations highest court. The absurdity of that is completely lost on the Left. It takes religion and idol worship to new highs. Meanwhile Christians are told to shut up and forced to participate in the ceremonies.

It should be a one way street, going one direction, but somewhere they have reversed that direction. The greatness of our country is rooted in our freedom. Now we are told that our freedom only flows from an all-powerful state. That Big-Government blesses our lives and providing air to breath, not the opposite. We the people are forced to bow to it, willingly or not.Citizens are no more than serfs.

Individual states and their powers are being reduced to ceremonial figureheads, subservient to Federal government. Obama has declared war on the states on many fronts, namely in ObamaCare and EPA regs, and on and on. He usurped the powers of the states as well as the legislative branch. We have an all-powerful executive sitting on the throne. He makes laws as he wills, he ignores them at will, and he dictates to the states. He carries out vengeance on those who don’t cede to his all-powerful authority. He does the same to states. He threatens those who disagree with him and his ideology. He renders us all wards of the state. We have whatever freedom he allows.

It is completely reversed from its inception. It is no longer contingent on the will of we the people, but “we the people” are dependent on Obama’s will — as he sees fit. The Left seems fine with this paradigm, as long as those in power are its own missionaries. Their applause in the SOTU to his unilateral agenda said it. All is well, they assert, while gladly being tied hand and foot to this Leviathan.

The federal government does not represent federalism any more than a third-world dictator does. It is centralized power and functions with that purpose. It wants only the illusion of states’ powers, and usurps everything else. The Bureaucracy even controls the purse strings of the states. The EPA asserts itself between the states and the Supreme Court. Arguably, some see the EPA as more powerful than states. Plus many departments wield their power similarly from Homeland security to the Dep of education to HHS, vying for control over states. It’s now the religion of tyranny.

Must be the season…

When did it become the cool thing to ruin America?

In the election of 2008 it became the faddish, cool thing to do to support Obama. Then in 2012, once again it was the fashionable “cool thing” to support Obama.

Well, they had supported him the first time so it would be hard to turn away, midstream, basically admitting they were snookered the first time. So they repeated the mistake partly to cover the original error. So does it make you think a little about original sin?

Life is like that, we repeat mistakes, sometimes unwittingly and sometimes intentionally, because the alternatives are too humiliating to face. Rather than fess up to our blunder, we look for a way to avoid revealing it. Often the coverup is more trouble than admitting the error. And once you start, it is harder to stop the longer it goes. The Nixon years taught us the power, or folly, of the coverup. Now we could label it the coverup syndrome.

Ruining America involves a little of that, and a few other ingredients. What one would basically do is deny or break the connection with the roots, or fundamental foundations of the country. That’s why the phrase to fundamentally transform the country was so important. We understood the significance of that, while on the left they acted as if there was no significance behind it. But then why would he make a point of saying it? We knew what he meant. The left would pretend it was harmless, which by then had become second nature.

Then, having cut off those things, the next thing on the to do list would be cut anything that tied to it. The major thing would be founding documents or the Constitution. They’ve been hacking away at that and breaking those ties. When revision runs its course on both, it tosses them in limbo as far as intelligentsia or academia is concerned. Then, whatever you wanted to do, someone could always make a case for it.

Then just continue undeterred with some a multitude of tests. “Probe with bayonets…”

SO you want to invade another country by ignoring Congress? Okay. You want to run up a huge tab on the debt? Okay. You want to have lots of scandals? Okay. You want to usurp more power? Okay. You want your signature legislative issue to be based on one principle then change it midstream, even in front of the Supreme Court while trying to defend it? Okay. You want to lie about events of national security? Okay. You want to deny multiple scandals are scandals? Okay. You want to deploy our military to overthrow a dictator without Congress? Okay.

You want to claim yours is the most transparent administration while hunkering down and obstructing any oversight?Okay again. You want to tell people, if the Congress doesn’t provide legislation you demand, you will do it with usurped “executive power”? Okay. You want to tell departments in your administration to just write law then force them on the people no matter what the consequences? Okay You want to create a few more czars? Okay. You want to have the IRS do your political work and ride shotgun for your reelection campaign? Okay.

obama photo: OBAMA OBAMA obama.jpgYou want to have your justice department stonewall the Congress for documents about a scam program it was running which undermined our laws? Okay You want to propose your administration investigate its own scandals? Okay. You want to have your own loyal cronies and political operatives promise to fix problems? Okay.

You want to lie about a terrorist attack on a US facility? You want to not answer questions on the decisions that caused the lies? Okay. You want to drag out the release of information for months or indefinitely, then dismiss the dead Americans as old news? Okay.

Want to say you will get to the bottom of a “phony scandals” while your administration conveniently does whatever they can to prevent it? Have at it.

You want to wall off and seal personal background information about you, while using any means to uncover any records on your political opponents? O–kay! You want to say you will pick and choose which laws you will follow and enforce? Okay. You want to pick winners and losers in the private sector and economy? Okay.

You want to have members in the Senate run interference by keeping a budget from being approved for your entire first term? Okay. You want to keep people in your administration working despite being involved in bad conduct? Okay. Do you want to ignore the Constitution as the rule of law of government? Well, have it your way.

White House solar panels being installed this week

Wa-Post — By Juliet Eilperin, Published: August 15

After nearly three years, the White House began installing solar panels on the First Family’s residence this week, a White House official confirmed Thursday.

The Obama administration had pledged in October 2010 to put solar panels on the White House as a sign of the president’s commitment to renewable energy.

The White House official, who asked not to be identified because the installation is in process, wrote in an e-mail the project is “a part of an energy retrofit that will improve the overall energy efficiency of the building.”

At the time of the 2010 announcement, then-Energy Secretary Steven Chu and White House Council on Environmental Quality chair Nancy Sutley said the administration would conduct a competitive bidding process to buy between 20 and 50 solar panels.

The officials did not identify the supplier or cost of the project, but wrote the White House “has begun installing American-made solar panels” and the initiative, “which will help demonstrate that historic buildings can incorporate solar energy and energy efficiency upgrades, is estimated to pay for itself in energy savings over the next eight years.”

The retrofit also includes installing updated building controls and variable speed fans, the official added. […/]

On Thursday, climate activist Bill McKibben, whose group 350.org had organized one of the campaigns to install solar power at the White House, welcomed the news that the installation had begun.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-politics/wp/2013/08/15/white-house-solar-panels-finally-being-installed/

But wouldn’t it be great if Barry would cut his offensive, personal carbon footprint, including AF-1 and consolidate those extra and double trips? He could probably save enough in one month to pay for all those solar panels and upgrades.

Get this, he cannot afford to have school kids or visitors for White House tours but he must expidite this… achem, it will eventually pay for itself. But White House tours are way too expensive and there is no return for the “investment”. That’s the Hypobama mentality.

Well kids, unless yo can prove you can produce electricity or some service to the White House, then forget it, you are not green enough. (maybe you could take turns pedaling a generator while the next group comes through….or maybe you could wash dishes?)

Meanwhile, Barry and his family will freely abuse the privileges of carbon-producing technology as much as they can, as far as they can, as long as they can; while they deny student field trips and tours. The efficiency gauge is busted on AF-1.

In his second term, Obama becomes bolder on the environment– Wa-Post

The shift has alarmed some industry officials, as well as coal allies. Sen. Joe Manchin III (D-W.Va.) described the administration as coal’s “adversary” and brought a state delegation headed by West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin (D) into the White House on Aug. 1 to meet with McCarthy and Michael Rodriguez, the White House legislative affairs director.

While Manchin called the nearly hour-long session “very respectful and productive,” he also said it exposed the “deep differences” between politicians like himself and Obama.

“You cannot describe this any differently than as a war on coal, and not just in West Virginia or the U.S. but on a global scale,” he said. “They’re using every tool they have to destroy the most abundant, reliable and affordable resource that we have.”

Kids and tourists, just think, you can tell everyone your sacrifices helped pay for those solar and efficiency upgrades. Won’t that be special? And you can also remember that when you or your parents pay that added Executive Order tax on the phone you carry.

Obama’s White House put it this way:

Due to staffing reductions resulting from sequestration, we regret to inform you that WhiteHouse Tours will be canceled effective Saturday, March 9, 2013 until further notice. Unfortunately, we will not be able to reschedule affected tours.

 We very much regret having to take this action, particularly during the popular Spring touring season. Please check this webpage for updates regarding this situation, or contact the White House Visitors Office 24 Hour Hotline at (202) 456-7041.
Sincerely,
The White House Visitors Office

Fortunately, no such sequestration on solar panels to the White House.
(Whew, that’s a relief…. or, you know, people might talk and complain!)

What Global Warming? 2012 Data Confirms Earth In Cooling Trend

By Barbara Hollingsworth — CNS News — August 13, 2013

[excerpt]-“To no one’s surprise, the report gives the reader the impression that warming is galloping ahead out of control,” writes Gosselin. “But their data shows just the opposite.”

Although the NOAA report noted that in 2012, “the Arctic continues to warm” with “sea ice reaching record lows,” it also stated that the Antarctica sea ice “reached a record high of 7.51 million square miles” on Sept. 26, 2012.

And the latest figures for this year show that there’s been a slowdown of melting in the Arctic this summer as well, with temperatures at the North Pole well below normal for this time of year. Meteorologist Joe Bastardi calls it “the coldest ever recorded.” ….
