Obama isn’t through wrecking economy yet

On Tuesday he plans to announce that he will defy Congress and institute CO2 controls under his executive authority.

President Obama said Saturday that scientists must design new fuels and energy sources to curb carbon pollution, part of a larger plan that he will announce next week that is expected to include efforts to regulate emissions from coal-fired power plants.

The president says in an online video that his plan includes preparing the United States for the effects of such pollution, which has been connected to climate change, and leading other nations in such efforts.

The new details and the Environmental Protection Agency-led plan for coal-firing plants, under the Clean Air Act, comes as no surprise, considering what Obama said in 2008 while running for this first term.

“If someone wants to build a new coal-fired power plant they can, but it will bankrupt them because they will be charged a huge sum for all the greenhouse gas that’s being emitted,” he said.

Between his climate change hobbles on the economy and Obamacare, he has just about choked America to death.

    I wonder how long he would last if private utility companies just did a non announced maintenance shutdown for a week or so and just allowed massive blackout s ?

    President Obama said Saturday that scientists must design new fuels and energy sources to curb carbon pollution . . . “

    So that’s how it works, eh? Invention is a product of imperial edict?

    Since 2008 this was the stated end game. See, the Carbon Exchange Commission is established for the sole purpose of “adjudicating” implementation, auditing and regulation of this “important” new, environmental effort to save America and Americans from Energy sectors’ destructive and oppressive control over all Americans lives, liberties and pursuit of happiness(fracking comes to mind).
    By Carbon Exchange Commission’s “regulating,” on a national level, any abuses of “shifting from fossil energy sources to ‘renewable’ energy technologies,” inhibits and curbs centuries of energy sectors’ abusive and destructive greed and power AND guarantees a more “fluid” paradigm shift to “carbon free” energy sources. This will happen through the “carbon emissions tax!”
    Now, if you believe all this cock-a-mamy Hoo-HAH, go for (vote for) the Carbon Exchange Commission. It will monitor and regulate the newly minted “carbon tax!” Yes, it’s also on the regulators books. See, Cass Sustein said this was comming down the pike…as was EPA shutting down all coal fired electric producing forms of energy, across the USA. A total of some 240 total slated for closing. Thermal electric power generating plants are also slated for closing. Think your energy costs (private, business, and commercial) aren’t going to triple? HAH! Hold on to your wallets! Cass Sustein express is steam rollin’ down the highway. And all the while, We The Elite People of culture of corruption in all of Washington DC associated with, or on the Board of Directors of this new Government/Private sector organization (like the Securities and Exchange commission-that caught Bernie Madoff, Ha!Ha!), will be enriching themselves and their crony-capitalist thieves and charlatans.Pray. Amen. Join a Tea Party.

    He is even happy talking his announcement with a slick video.

    The king declares, raise the taxes, the advisor says, but sire the peasants will starve, the king declares let them eat dirt, the advisor says but sire they will revolt, the king declares so what we have the guns, the advisor says well not all of them…and thus the saga continues.

    Obama wants this for his base and possibly because he believes its the right thing. The fact that anthropogenic Global Warming has been all but proven to be rubbish is of no concern to these Gaia-worshipping neo-druids.
