EPA Official: EPAs "philosophy" is to "crucify" and "make examples" of US energy producers
YouTube ^ | 4/25/12 | JimInhofePressOffice

Posted on 04/25/2012 5:15:38 PM PDT by Nachum

In a Senate speech, Senator Inhofe will draw attention to a little known video from 2010, which shows a top EPA official, Region VI Administrator Al Armendariz, using the vivid metaphor of crucifixion to explain EPA's enforcement tactics for oil and gas producers. In this video Administrator Armendariz says:

"But as I said, 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. And I gave, I was in a meeting once and I gave an analogy to my staff about my philosophy of enforcement, and I think it was probably a little crude and maybe not appropriate for the meeting but I'll go ahead and tell you what I said. It was kind of like how 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.

Still stuck at 301. But the number of likes is growing. I wonder what happens when the number of likes is greater than the number of views?

As someone commented on YouTube thread, it's apparently an automatic process to freeze the display when number of views on otherwise unexceptional clip (ie. not Lady Gaga's latest music video, official Avengers trailer or something similar that'll draw instant crowds) exceeds about 300 so that YouTube can investigate whether views are real or if someone is cheating. If they find no cheating, the number then jumps to the 'real' count and continues updating normally.

The Counter was at 31,409 when I last looked at it.

The EPA administrator (appointed by Obama of course) who said "crucify" oil and gas companies, Al Armendariz:

During and after college he worked as a research assistant at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Center for Global Change Science at its Atmospheric Chemistry Laboratory in Massachusetts.

Question: How can it be "science" if the title of the program contains the conclusion "Global Change Science?" Ditto for "IPCC."

I would say that Obama has nothing to lose if he gets reelected, but if Romney wins and lurches leftward, the only way to vote him out would be to vote for whatever Dem he would be running against in 2016.

I am for some reason reminded recently, of the Nixon administration. Whitehouse enemies lists, the whole ball of yarn.

And how it was liberals. Hillary Clinton. The MSM.

Every single member, of the bunch now coddling and excusing. No!... actively promoting ... far worse behavior by this corrupt regime.

Where are today’s Woodwards and Bernsteins?

Oh.

There they are. Look. Lower. On the ground.

Carefully spit-polishing Obama’s shoes.

That tactic will work in the opposite direction.

Democrats have gone after logging, energy, food, manufacturing, banking, health care, pharmaceuticals. Yet they are hands off of entertainment, academia, and lawyers.

Whatever you do, don’t vote for Mitt.

And we are assured certain destruction. Get control of the Senate, increase control of The House, elect Mit and hold his feet to the fire. This way there is a chance of saving this country.

After posting this, let's see how Obama handles the alleged Biden Chinese bribery scandal with the entertainment industry.

I have dealt with EPA for 30 years. They are the true facist that they are made out to be. Out of my own personal safety and /or persecution, I will not cover my experiences here.

Most EPA personnel couldn't make it working in the commercial circuit and that is why they hate business and want power over it.

The EPA is essentially an obsolete agency so they act like exterminators to glorify their self-importance.

I just went to view this, and noticed that YouTube has pulled it due to “a copyright claim by David McFatridge” whoever he is.

They can rub and scrub the web all they want, the bell has been rung here. Besides, many copies of this have been made.
