Obama's Latest Executive Order Doubles Down on the Frack Attack - Erika Johnsen
Dateline: Friday 13th 2012
HEADLINE: Obama Sneaks In With Another Executive Order, giving him and his minions power over natural gas exploration, transportation, environmental safety, drilling, extraction and delivery. Friday the 13th gets even scarier.
Once again, it's all for the good of the people. Thanks Barack. Isn't it comforting to know that we have a president whose concern for the welfare of the people is unprecedented in these, troubled economic and cultural times.
This Executive Order is just another in a long list of Presidential power grabs. This Executive compilation of relatively successful grabs is, to say the least enough to give a person pause.
The Natural Gas industry has been making huge strides in it's exploration and extraction methods in order to keep natural gas as inexpensive as possible to the consumer. One of the industries more successful mining techniques is called "fracking". In essence, it calls for deep drilling into shale formations, setting off a small charge which in turn releases the gas trapped in the shale rock. Fracking has been proven to be a safe and responsible way of mining natural gas deposits deep in the earth's shale formations. The environmental movement of course has been fighting "fracking" as a viable mining technique, by making unfounded and irresponsible accusations that "fracking" causes all kind detrimental effects on the planet and the people. Because the environmentalists have been unable to prove their theories regarding "fracking" the EPA, believe it or not, have been dropping their cases against private natural gas companies. The new sets of "greenhouse gas" rules were specifically designed to destroy domestic coal, and in turn boost the natural gas industry. With this dismal news, the environmentalists had no place to turn, but wait-a-minute, they have the President in their hip pocket. That is of course where this new Executive Order comes in. Giving almost total control over natural gas exploration, mining, extraction and transportation of... well, guess what can be accomplished with a new E.O.? In a matter of time, the environmentalists and their champion Barack Obama will be able to regulate and control the natural gas industry right into the ground. Soon, natural gas prices will rival that of the escalating gasoline prices. The environmental movement in America obviously has but one goal, "Stifle, Stifle, Stifle!"
The Executive order reads like a dictatorial for protecting the people, in essence it will increase the cost of natural gas and decrease its availability to the public. The following is an excerpt from the Obama order:
"It is vital that we take full advantage of our natural gas resources, while giving American families and communities confidence that natural and cultural resources, air and water quality, and public health and safety will not be compromised."
"The Obama administration is taking new steps to increase federal oversight of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, a drilling method that has helped usher in a natural gas boom but, brought with it environmental concerns."
The EPA (Environmental Agency) is slated to unveil (there's a unique way of saying it) final oil-and-gas air pollution regulations next week (I bet the mining companies can't wait for these!) that would cut smog-forming and toxic emissions from wells developed with fracking. Separately, the Interior Department will soon float rules for fracking on public lands. (What does "float rules" mean exactly?)
It all sounds good doesn't it? It really does sound like the President is looking out for the welfare of his people, doesn't it? Actually, it's control, control and more control. There are some key phrases in the above Obama statement that are clues to Obama's actual intentions. The phrase "natural gas boom". That is Obama's way of telling you that the natural gas industry is being way to successful, and we can't have that, not under this administration, where wealthy and successful people need to be vilified, punished and their wealth redistributed, or we'll bankrupt the entire industry. It's the Obama way, it's the Environmental way, it's the way of the New World Order.
Of course, this is just another Executive Order, and all E.O.s can be reversed and expunged by the next President. It happens all the time to Presidential Executive orders, from one administration to the other. Let me pose this for you to think about. Do you really think that Barack Hussein Obama has drafted, written and signed all these power grab E.O.s just so the president elect can reverse and expunge them? Let's face it, by all standards and by historical facts, Barack Obama is unelectable in 2012. No president has ever been reelected with numbers like these: $4-$5 gas, 8.3+ unemployment, housing foreclosures in the millions, and more to come this month and next, racial tensions at an all time high instigated solely by the President and his administration. Class warfare as we've never seen in the history of this nation, yet, is Obama worried about re-election, it doesn't appear so, and that, to me, is frightening. At this point in time, and with numbers like Obama has, one would think he is a lame duck president, but is he? If he was, he would know that his latest E.O.s would only stand for another 8 months, so why even write them? However, write them he does, and with reckless abandon for a President on his way out of the White House. I for one, am not sure that Obama will be going anywhere in 2012, or anytime soon after that for that matter. Barack Obama either knows something we don't, or, he is the most arrogantly confident man to have ever lived in the White House? It is my opinion that he does know something that we don't, and he is in fact, the most arrogantly confident man that has ever lived in the White House.
Stay vigilant, always! God Help Us
