The 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.
While the majority of Americans have concluded that global warming is hokum, let’s say that the environmentalists are right. Does any effort to further burden Americans with laws and regulations to stop something help Americans or hurt them? Why does Obama say he’s going to basically regulate coal out of business? Keep reading to find my answer.
Now, remember 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 this so-called “carbon pollution” increase. 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. Forget all that and realize that more regulations on energy will only drive up energy costs and the prices of goods and services., It will further cripple our economy and will drive more of the middle class toward poverty. Obama is dead set on his agenda to destroy the American way of life.
Does Obama’s war on coal have anything to do with coal? Nope. It’s only a continuation of his war on America. He is punishing the American people and showing our Congress he doesn’t need their approval to do it.
Lets move on to The Keystone Pipeline. Obama announced yesterday that he will, via executive order (of course! Who needs Congress?), halt further progress on the pipeline.
Obama is asking the State Department not to approve construction on the pipeline unless the Environmental Protection Agency first determines that the project will not lead to a net increase in greenhouse gas emissions in the United States. His order will make it nearly impossible for construction on the pipeline to commence. Obama continues to wreck havoc on our economy by continuing to stop jobs. Does he think that oil that arrives in tankers from the Middle East does not produce greenhouse gas? What are his motives in not getting oil from a friendly country but continuing supporting countries that hate us?
The answer to all of my questions is Obama is conducting political jihad.
“The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer” – Barack Hussein Obama, Cairo speech 2008
“The Future Must Not Belong To Those Who Slander The Prophet Of Islam” – Barack Hussein Obama, speech at the United Nations 2012
“I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction” Barack Obama, in his book The Audacity of Hope
The political winds have shifted and they’re not in our favor.
