Obama Planning to Circumvent Congress to Deliberately Drive Up Energy Prices
Tyranny is always an end in itself for tyrants — but it can’t be marketed that way. Nazis sold tyranny as a quest for racial purity; communists sold it as economic justice. In the USSA, the label reads “saving the planet.” The sugar coating is never effective except on the most bovine. For the rest, there is force. That’s why Obama is planning to circumvent congress to ram through his phony climate agenda:
President Obama is launching fresh battles over climate change with plans to curb emissions using executive powers that sidestep Congress – including controversial rules to cut carbon pollution from existing power plants.
The wide-ranging plan, which Obama will tout in a speech later Tuesday, also beefs up federal efforts to help deploy low-carbon and renewable energy…
That is, still more hundreds of $billions of borrowed money will be flushed down corrupt green energy boondoggles like Solyndra, Abound Solar, Beacon Power, et cetera, so as to enrich Obama’s allies and campaign donors.
The plan is designed to get around Congress, where major climate bills have no political traction. White House spokesman Jay Carney said Monday that Obama’s executive approach “reflects reality.”
The reality is that only a dictator unconcerned with voter retaliation would allow the EPA to impose crippling restrictions on power plants that will send energy prices through the stratosphere, dragging unemployment along as businesses collapse under the weight of unpayable power bills. Thus, Congress will be cut out of the loop.
Coal is our most readily abundant energy source. The Obama Regime is openly calling for a war against it. According to White House “climate advisor” Daniel P. Schrag:
“The one thing the president really needs to do now is to begin the process of shutting down the conventional coal plants. Politically, the White House is hesitant to say they’re having a war on coal. On the other hand, a war on coal is exactly what’s needed.”
To win this mostly furtive war, Obama has raised the cost of the carbon emissions by 60%.
Meanwhile, even the liberal press is salvaging some credibility by admitting that there is no global warming of any significance, and that the climate models socialists have used as a Trojan horse to impose a centralized economy along the lines of the Soviet Union are false:
Climate experts have long predicted that temperatures would rise in parallel with greenhouse gas emissions. But, for 15 years, they haven’t. In a SPIEGEL interview, meteorologist Hans von Storch discusses how this “puzzle” might force scientists to alter what could be “fundamentally wrong” models.
Vladimir Putin is not trying to deprive us of our primary energy source. Neither is Mahmoud Ahmadinejad or Xi Jinping. The American people have no worse enemy than the Obama Regime.
