Punishing Americans for the world’s pollution

 

Headline from

TheHill.com

“The Hill reports that the Obama administration is ’opening a climate change war with Republicans on Monday with the Environmental Protection Agency’s unveiling of sweeping new standards on carbon emissions from power plants.’” Between the Lines

Predictably, Republicans disagree. They are calling this a “war on coal.” Officials in states that rely on the coal-mining industries or rely on coal for fuel are pushing back because these new regulations are onerous and would cause the loss of thousands of jobs. Certainly the regulations will drive up the cost of fuel for consumers.

Press Release from DNC

“DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz:

“’It is a moral imperative that we bequeath to our children a healthy planet with clean air and water.’”

Between the Lines

Of course, we all want clean air and water, but in her usual fashion, Wasserman Schultz relies on emotion rather than fact by claiming that the impact would be most heavily felt by blacks and Hispanics. It would mean more asthma and other diseases among the poor.

She also claimed that the new EPA regulations would mean fewer droughts, tornadoes and hurricanes. (No science; just feelings.)

Headlines from

DNC.org

“New carbon regulations will increase electric bills by ’$17 billion every year’ and ’potentially put an average of 224,000 more people out of work every year.’”

Between the Lines

The DNC was referring to a web posting by John Boehner. Predictably, the DNC (Democratic National Committee) claims that Boehner’s numbers are incorrect, because the Republicans would not have been able to read and analyze the 645-page bill that quickly!

Another surprise attack. Remember Obama’s promise in 2009? “I will not sign any non-emergency bill without giving the American public an opportunity to review and comment on the White House website for five days.” Yeah. He really said that!

There is no doubt, however, that the new regulations will lead to higher costs for heating and cooling our homes.

It’s always good to bear in mind, too, that all the regulations that Obama can pass apply only to Americans. It’s the Third World countries and China that can do far more harm to the atmosphere, than the U.S. industries that are already strictly regulated. So, we are punishing Americans for something that we can do nothing about.

youngcons.com/watch“President Obama berated Real Clear Politics reporter Alexis Simendinger after she asked him about reports of the U.S. sending trainers to help the rebels in Syria. é”

Between the Lines

Watch the video and decide for yourself. A reporter asks the president a question about breaking news in Syria, and he brushes her off. Most of the news sites reported this as the president belittling or humiliating the reporter for asking a question of which he had not approved.

The president’s retort was: “I’m sorry, we’re doing a science fair Com’on, com’on!” He then walked off in a huff. It’s obvious that his priorities are not with foreign affairs.
