Digging through my archives from November of 2008 on the occasion today, of the ISIS Islamic Jihadist Muslim Terrorists taking over the Iraqi oil refineries, brings to mind the same agenda flowing so smoothly from the lips of one who declared that “this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth. This was the moment – this was the time – when we came together to remake this great nation.” … Little did We The People know that we were electing the impeachable imposter.
So much for all that loose-lip rhetoric, which history has now proclaimed, was just a bunch of smooth-lip wishful fantasy. The reality is, 6 years later, that the Constitutional Republic is, to put it bluntly, “in one hell of a mess!” under the impeachable imposter.
In a clip from a January 2008 interview with the San Francisco Chronicle in which the impeachable imposter promised to bankrupt anyone foolish enough to build coal-burning power plants, he also made an interesting admission about his entire energy plan. Obama told the editors that his policies would make energy prices “skyrocket” as the energy industry passed along the exorbitant costs of his cap-and-trade policy:
The problem is not technical, uh, and the problem is not mastery of the legislative intricacies of Washington. The problem is, uh, can you get the American people to say, “This is really important,” and force their representatives to do the right thing? That requires mobilizing a citizenry. That requires them understanding what is at stake. Uh, and climate change is a great example.
You know, when I was asked earlier about the issue of coal, uh, you know — Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket. Even regardless of what I say about whether coal is good or bad. Because I’m capping greenhouse gases, coal power plants, you know, natural gas, you name it — whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, uh, they would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that money on to consumers.
They — you — you can already see what the arguments will be during the general election. People will say, “Ah, Obama and Al Gore, these folks, they’re going to destroy the economy, this is going to cost us eight trillion dollars,” or whatever their number is. Um, if you can’t persuade the American people that yes, there is going to be some increase in electricity rates on the front end, but that over the long term, because of combinations of more efficient energy usage, changing lightbulbs and more efficient appliance, but also technology improving how we can produce clean energy, the economy would benefit.
If we can’t make that argument persuasively enough, you — you, uh, can be Lyndon Johnson, you can be the master of Washington. You’re not going to get that done.
The impeachable imposter…
Energy prices skyrocketing will leave the economy in tatters, as we saw earlier this year. While no one doubts the need to start transitioning to better sources of energy, the manner in which that gets done means the difference of whether it gets done at all. A stagnant or receding economy does not produce scientific breakthroughs, especially when government both increases taxes and imposes steep cost burdens on energy. That cuts into both manufacturing and R&D, because as profits fall, fewer dollars go into research — which means that all of these wonderful developments would get delayed, or go unrealized altogether.
We need to plan for the transition better than what the impeachable imposter proposes. We need to use our own reserves of oil, natural gas, coal, and shale to cushion the economy while we develop the alternatives and build the infrastructure to deliver it. That’s what John McCain proposed a few years ago in his Lexington Project.
Price shocks on energy is the last thing this economy needs. It would be worse than the taxes the impeachable imposter promises to impose on investment, and would have the same depressive effect. It’s an utter disaster.
Then there’s this from a couple of weeks ago from the Washington Free Beacon:
House Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio) posted a flashback video Monday morning reminding people of President Obama’s “promise” that under his energy plan, “electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.”
“Under my plan of a cap-and-trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket, regardless of what I say about whether coal is good or bad, because I’m capping greenhouse gases,” Obama said. “Coal power plants, natural gas, whatever the industry was, they would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that money onto consumers.”
The Environmental Protection Agency is unveiling new standards Monday on carbon emissions as part of the administration’s climate change agenda.
This morning, the Obama administration will announce new EPA rules that will keep the president’s infamous promise that “electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.” The promise was so clear, so brazen, that it’s worth taking another look. The president’s plan would indeed cause a surge in electricity bills – costs stand to go up $17 billion every year.
But it would also shut down plants and potentially put an average of 224,000 more people out of work every year. It’s a sucker punch for families everywhere paying more for just about everything in the president’s fragile economy.
That’s why the House has already passed legislation that would prevent these rules from taking effect without congressional approval. Senate Democrats concerned about “pocketbook issues” should take it up immediately.
Bottom line is, that when this Manchurian Candidate “horn-swaggled” the Constitutional Republic with his unlawful elevation to the highest political office on the planet, gas was $1.89 a gallon, and now it is at just under $4 but about to rise rapidly to $5, and after that, who knows? … The impeachable imposter’s legacy is in ruins, and We The People hope it isn’t total destruction. What with Obamacare, global warming, closing GITMO, a disastrous Foreign Policy, lack of jobs, economic decline, decimating the military .. All failures from the impeachable imposter…
We The People could go on and on, since the dismal evidence is laid before us day after dismal day when the prevaricating surrogate parrots trot out to their “press conference” podiums to lie through their teeth to the American people with their prepared and packaged “questions.”
Without a doubt, Obama is the worst President in the history of the Republic, bar none.
If only he were white, we could impeach him, yet he remains the impeachable imposter – PERIOD.
