EPA – ENVIONMENTAL PUNISHMENT AGENCY
Another reason you have unreasonable gasoline and utility prices. Baby, you ain’t seen nothing yet. They are just getting warmed up. They will slow down to get Obama re-elected then the mass crucifixion will begin. CB
Are you familiar with a certain Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) official named Al Armendariz? He has openly admitted that the EPA desires to crucify the energy industry.
Chances are you’ve never heard of him, I had not. The reason this was ignored by the media is normal and rather obvious. The news media, including Fox News, would shake in their boots before exposing this in-depth. Glenn Beck did in an article in the Blaze. Fox News, without Beck, joined the other networks in fear of our government. Hopefully more Congresspersons will be willing to use their power to find similar events, before November. If not, it’s four more Obama years.
Sen. Jim Inhofe’s (R-OK) staff found a copy of a 2010 video that confirms what many conservatives have long suspected: the EPA is at war with the oil and gas industries. If you wish to see the video go to the Blaze website.
Read Mr. Armendariz’s direct quotes;
“Oil and gas is an enforcement priority, it’s one of seven, so we are going to spend a fair amount of time looking at oil and gas production,” Armendariz says in the video.
This top-ranking EPA official goes on to explain his philosophy of policy enforcement [emphases added]:
“I was in a meeting once and I gave an analogy to my staff…the Romans used to conquer little villages in the Mediterranean. They’d go into a little Turkish town somewhere, they’d find the first five guys they saw and they would crucify them. And then you know that town was really easy to manage for the next few years.
And so you make examples out of people who are in this case not compliant with the law. Find people who are not compliant with the law, and you hit them as hard as you can and you make examples out of them, and there is a deterrent effect there.
And, companies that are smart see that, they don’t want to play that game, and they decide at that point that it’s time to clean up.”
“And, that won’t happen unless you have somebody out there making examples of people. So you go out, you look at an industry, you find people violating the law, you go aggressively after them. And we do have some pretty effective enforcement tools. Compliance can get very high, very, very quickly.
That’s what these companies respond to is both their public image but also financial pressure. So you put some financial pressure on a company, you get other people in that industry to clean up very quickly.”
“So, that’s our general philosophy,” he adds.
In regards to the crucifixion remarks: its obvious Armendariz is simply using a serious analogy to an obvious Progressive Democratic audience. This is a sick way to accomplish Socialistic objectives.
Obviously the wide spread litigation brought against oil, gas, and coal producers by EPA, Mr. Armendariz’s speech confirms that the crucifixion is well underway. The EPA is at war with these industries, and winning.
This is just another chapter in the way our leadership will force us to buy $50 light bulbs and $10 a gallon gasoline. Obama and his Marxist army of advisors openly and admittedly promised all of this before he was elected. Obama’s high energy prices do not hurt the rich, it destroys the poor and the young people starting out and they are the ones who vote for him.
Guess who is paying for this, we are. We are paying to get our savings robbed, our costs for basic needs increased and brainwashing our children to accept a Socialist future that will destroy America. These people are sick b……’s and they are out of control.
