Forget the U.S. Constitution: Obama says, “Where Congress is not willing to act, we’re going to go ahead and do it ourselves.”
Update: “President Barack Obama is tired of waiting for Congress to move on legislation to reduce carbon emissions, and his administration is poised to move forward on actions to do just that—including a move that will effectively eliminate the possibility of any new coal plant opening in the United States, experts say.” So, not only is Obama once again acting unilaterally and trashing the separation of powers– but he’s also following through on his promise to destroy the coal industry.
Strange Update: Does Obama have a split personality disorder too? America is incredulous now that he’s been taped saying this: “You know, the one thing about being president is, after four years, you get pretty humble… You realize all the mistakes you made. But you also realize you can’t do things by yourself. That’s not how our system works. You’ve got to have the help and the goodwill of Congress.” Right…
Obama doesn’t have anything to say about this eco-terrorist: “The hostage situation at the Discovery Channel headquarters in Silver Spring, Md., ended Wednesday with police taking the life of the apparent gunman, James L. Lee. This unhinged individual, inspired by the ideas of environmental extremists, believed that by terrorizing employees at the television network he would spark a change that would ultimately “save the planet.”… Heavily influenced by Al Gore’s apocalyptic film “An Inconvenient Truth,” Lee saw mankind itself as the biggest threat to planetary survival. Lee logically concluded that reducing the number of human beings represented the only certain means of ending that threat.”
The only thing Obama would like to announce is that Americans should be on the lookout for “right-wing extremists.”
Update: Obama also doesn’t have anything to say about this racist threat of violence: “Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan told thousands of followers Sunday he was planning to reach out to gang leaders to help “protect” the Nation of Islam… Farrakhan, 79, renewed the call for African Americans to pool money and buy as much land as possible… In addition to sending letters to black military leaders, Farrakhan said he planned to contact the city’s gang leaders to recruit gang members to “protect” any land the Nation of Islam might buy in the future… Farrakhan said gangbangers are “natural soldiers” and could be taught “the science of war” to become protectors of the Nation of Islam’s assets in the future.” But this isn’t surprising– Obama also supported the violent “Occupy Wall Street” movement while decrying the peaceful Tea Party Movement, and refused to denounce violent rhetoric against Republicans.
Update: Gas prices in 2013 could hit record highs– “so far this year, prices are surging sooner and faster than ever before.”
Obama’s “Cash for Clunkers” program had 2 purposes:
1. Help the U.S. economy
2. Help the environment
Well, we already know that Obama’s “Cash for Clunkers” program was an administrative fiasco and wasted $3 billion of American taxpayer dollars. So, it certainly didn’t help the U.S. economy.
Now, we know that “Cash for Clunkers” actually HARMED the environment! By focusing on car shredding instead of car recycling, the “Cash for Clunkers” program “produced tons of unnecessary waste while doing little to curb greenhouse gas emissions.”
Obama’s “Cash for Clunkers” program impressively spent $3 billion to harm the environment. Shouldn’t there be an investigation?
“A123 Systems Inc. (AONE), the electric car battery maker that received a $249.1 million federal grant, filed for bankruptcy.” Obama’s spent billions of taxpayer dollars on “green” companies that he believes will support him politically– and the result has been the Solyndra scandal and bankruptcy after bankruptcy.
Romney put it best during the first presidential debate: “don’t forget, you put $90 billion – like 50 years worth of breaks – into solar and wind, to Solyndra and Fisker and Tesla and Ener1. I mean, I had a friend who said, you don’t just pick the winners and losers; you pick the losers.”
Obama’s Secretary of Energy Stephen Chu “regards the spike in gas prices as a feature rather than a bug. High gas prices provide an incentive for alternate energy technology, a priority for the White House, and a decrease in reliance on oil for energy.” Is this the kind of ‘environmentalism’ that you can believe in?
Obama spent $535 million of taxpayers’ money to fund a “green energy” company (Solyndra Inc.)– despite high-risk warnings from White House staffers– which went bankrupt 2 years later. Then, there was a cover-up of this scandal by the Obama Administration before the 2010 midterm election. It turns out that a big Obama donor played a pivotal role in securing federal financing for Solyndra, and that the same guy moved ahead of taxpayers in line for repayment when Solyndra defaulted.
