Where will Obama wield his destructive hammer next? Looks like he’s determined to ruin the economy further through the EPA. The President issued as executive order in Fridays document dump. Here’s part of what he had to say:
“The impacts of climate change — including an increase in prolonged periods of excessively high temperatures, more heavy downpours, an increase in wildfires, more severe droughts, permafrost thawing, ocean acidification, and sea-level rise — are already affecting communities, natural resources, ecosystems, economies, and public health across the Nation. These impacts are often most significant for communities that already face economic or health-related challenges, and for species and habitats that are already facing other pressures. Managing these risks requires deliberate preparation, close cooperation, and coordinated planning by the Federal Government, as well as by stakeholders, to facilitate Federal, State, local, tribal, private-sector, and nonprofit-sector efforts to improve climate preparedness and resilience; help safeguard our economy, infrastructure, environment, and natural resources; and provide for the continuity of executive department and agency (agency) operations, services, and programs. … In doing so, agencies should promote: (1) engaged and strong partnerships and information sharing at all levels of government; (2) risk-informed decision making and the tools to facilitate it; (3) adaptive learning, in which experiences serve as opportunities to inform and adjust future actions; and (4) preparedness planning.”
The lies and deception packed into this statement were meant to sound scarey alarm bells. Democrats need those environmental extremist nuts to come out and vote in the next election so he’s tossing them a big meaty bone.
But it could mean anything…and that’s the point of this article.
The President will create another task force. This time it will include governors and mayors from across the country. Republican governors have declined to participate in the Presidents latest efforts to bully the people but at least three Republican mayors have agreed to serve. The Hill lists the task force members:
The Democratic governors on the task force are: Neil Abercrombie (Hawaii), Jerry Brown (Calif.), Jay Inslee (Wash.), Jack Markell (Del.), Martin O’Malley (Md.), Pat Quinn (Ill.), and Peter Shumlin (Vt).
There are, however, several local GOP officials on the task force: The mayors of Fort Collins, Colo.; Greensburg, Kan.; and Carmel, Ind..
Get ready for the President to bypass Congress and a huge number of governors and mayors, not to mention the people, to impose draconian federal dictates in every single community in America. Millions of our tax dollars will be flushed down a toilet. In the end the return on our “investment” of tax dollars will be zot and the economy and jobs will take yet another hit. All of this will be done in the name of the fantasy of environmental “climate change”.
This executive order could become the most fascist move yet by this President and his administration. The President won’t be around for the damage from this train wreck, not that he has taken responsibility for anything in his presidency. He’ll just continue to move on.
