If you wanted to bring the United States down, what would you do? Really.
If you hated the United States and were in a position to end the American role as the sole military and economic superpower in the world, how would you do it.
Let’s reframe this question.
If you wanted to bring America down, would you do anything differently than what Barack Obama and the Party of Treason are currently doing?
The latest effort from the Obama Regime is to de-power America.
From the Washington Times:
“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.”
-Candidate Barack Obama, 2008.
Well, we can’t say we weren’t warned. This week, the unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats at the Environmental Protection Agency released a set of proposed rules designed to target greenhouse gas emissions. If enacted, these rules would virtually destroy the coal industry - just as President Obama once promised he would do.
Under the proposed rules, new power plants will be required to emit no more than 1,000 pounds of carbon dioxide per megawatt hour of electricity; coal plants average 1,768 pounds of carbon dioxide per megawatt. As Jordan Weissmann writes for theAtlantic, “Natural gas plants already meet this requirement. But if a utility wants to burn coal for electricity, it will need to install carbon capture technology - and that’s really expensive.”
Obama does not have to try and rule by fiat to destroy that which he does not like. He can simply make it impossible for that industry to function.
That is what he is doing with coal.
It will be impossible to get new coal fired plants online.
What does that mean?
If you are in West Virginia, it means massive poverty. If you are in parts of the South East and other areas where coal fired power plants produce the electricity, you are facing huge electric bills.
Americans will not be able to run their air conditioners, their TV’s their lights and their other consumer electronics.
American businesses are going to be forced to absorb and pass along greater costs, which will make America businesses less competitive in the world market.
Man made global warming has been pretty much discredited and no one believes it unless their brain cells are on the endangered species list or your name is Al Gore.
It does not matter what good the EPA does now, the evil it now perpetrates on America is simply too great. The EPA must be abolished. We can talk about what replaces it later, but it must go, while there is still an America left.
>>> WHY NOT BURN obummer FOR FUEL ????? THERE IS ENOUGH BULLSHIT AND HOT AIR TO GENERATE
A MILLION MEGAWATTS .
Sir, while I completely disagree with BHO's policies and ideologies, you have crossed the line of appropriate respect for a man whom God has allowed to be our president. I could not more vehemently oppose his vision for our nation, but even the suggestion of physical violence is utterly inappropriate.
I intentionally said "allowed," not placed.
To those who have replied to my above comments with personal attacks --
Honorable friends, we have a traitor in chief who is a Muslim imposter with no respect for the rule of law. This treasonous rascal ought to be impeached - yesterday. This man is brimming over with BS, hot air, and moreover, lies from the pit of hell. He is, without question, the most wicked man to have ever occupied the oval office.
Yes, the other side has no respect for me, us, or our ideas. Yes, the other side malevolently advocates violence. Yes, the other side will use physical violence against me and us at the first opportunity. However, I live by a higher standard. If I descend to their level, how am I better than they are?
Those who interprete my comments as suggesting passivity or tolerance have greatly misunderstood me. For pity's sake, I have my senators and state's congressmen on speed-dial! I invest significant time and money in fighting the satanic agenda of those who would strip us of our liberty and subjugate us as serfs of the state. Respect ≠ passivity. Respect ≠ lack of passion.
We have ideas that can win. Unlike these other treasonous rascals, we don't have to win with physical violence. Our job is to use our ideas to convince our duped friends and neighbors to oppose BHO, the supporters of his agenda, and the agenda itself.
We are not yet in a time of physical violence. I pray I don't see such a day in America, but acknowledge that I likely will. When that day comes, the same rules won't apply. I'm the first to use and affirm others' right to self-defense.
I don't know why God has allowed Satan to win for the moment such that BHO is our president. Perhaps it is punishment. Perhaps it is to wake people up. All I know is that, as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are His ways higher than my ways and His thoughts higher than my thoughts. The bottom line is that this treasonous man is in a position of authority over me. Just as David in the Bible (a warrior, by the way) showed respect for his wicked predecessor Saul, so I must show respect to BHO's position of authority.
I believe we must respect all human beings because, regardless of how badly marred it may be, they bear the image of their Creator. I respect BHO, just as I respect the stoned bum on the sidewalk and those who disagree with me on this forum. That doesn't mean I don't fight BHO and his wicked agenda tooth and nail; I respect him because I respect his Creator.
Well John, you sure are respectful to a first class a****** & I suppose you should be commended.
It's the passive & tolerant attitude as yours why our electorate sat back & ALLOWED these basturds to become our destructive force. Yeah, suppose you're correct, God did allow our stupidity & gulliability to rule better judgment. Do remember, HE allowed Jews to wander for 40 years
Hes is monkeyboy forever to me...
monkeyboy is a racist, antisemite, communist FRAUD. And I wont dignify the racist POS by even using his name much less his "title"
I dont care if they/you kick me off this site.
Respect is earned, not demanded nor to be expected for malfeasance. Obama and his ilk take every opportunity they can to denigrate the U.S. and it's people. Feck him. He is our worst enemy but I don't blame him, I blame those morons that voted for him.
Those may very well be your last words, John, as the nation crumbles. God didn't put him there, idiots did!
Well John, as for me, you can go jump in a lake of shi_, along with ovommit. I have "no" respect for him and I am beginning to question my respect for the office he holds. As someone else said, "Idiots put him in the oval office" Maybe you should get a different Avatar and go back to Media Matters where you belong. Take your morality with you
Yes, people are really angry with BHO and his army of gangsters. but they are taking it out on others.
Please stop! It's important to stand back at look at that anger -- and who it should really be taken out on. Not one another! Save it for BHO and his ilk.
Respect is a two-way street and more importantly its earned not bestowed on demand. Next, God has nothing to do with the politics of mankind nor the governments elected by men. If God truly had a hand in the governance of human beings we would not have seen Hitler, Mao, Lenin, Stalin, Pol Pot and dozens of other minor mass murderers in our history. God is above the devices of human beings.
Zero was elected by people, stupid people, evil people, careless people, but people nonetheless. Do you think for one moment that any leftist respects you? The day for the sort of civility you propose is long gone, about 100 years gone. Now civility makes you look weak and ineffective, civility toward our internal enemies is rewarded with more bad policy and more insults. Your civility will be rewarded with policy and law designed to torture and then eliminate you but only after everything else of any value has been extracted.
Respect for social cannibals and mass murdering scum? Really dude?
WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? >Physical violence. Are you completely nuts?
