EPA Enforcers: 'Way Of Life Act' Needed;' 'Individual Change' Isn't Enough
CNS News ^ | 6/5/12 | Craig Bannister

n preparation for Obama-EPA Regional Administrator Al Armendariz’s testimony before the House Energy and Commerce Committee on Wednesday, Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) released a video montage of Obama EPA Regional Administrators longing to impose a green “Way Of Life Act” on Americans through the regulatory regime of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Regional Administrators talk of how they plan to “crucify” domestic energy producers, make their businesses “painful every step of the way,” or otherwise compel a green way-of-life.

Recently, Sen. Inhofe uncovered a video of Region 6 Administrator Al Armendariz admitting that EPA’s “general philosophy” is to “crucify” and “make examples” of oil and gas companies – just as Roman soldiers would crucify random citizens in conquered villages, to make an example of them. Armendariz subsequently resigned under fire for the exposed comments.

“But, it’s not just Armendariz,” Sen. Inhofe’s office warns:

“The purpose of this video is to get to know President Obama’s “green generals” – the regional administrators – who are going into battle for the Obama-EPA, working hard to force a green “way of life act” in regions across the United States.”

In the Inhofe video, EPA Region 2 Administrator Judith Enck claims, “I don’t think individual change is going to be enough” - while Armendariz twice says the Clean Water Act and Clean Air Act can be used as proxies to enforce the “Way Of Life Act” he wishes he had.

“I don’t have a Way of Life Act that I can enforce - I’ve got a Clean Air Act, I’ve got a Clean Water Act, a Safe Drinking Water Act” that can be used to enforce green ideals, Armendariz says.

“[U]nfortunately I don’t have a Way of Life Act I can enforce but at the same time EPA isn’t toothless and we do have

These people, the entire administration has to be removed and the various government agencies have to be purged. They are destroying this nation.

I totally agree. At the same time, I don't believe it will ever happen.

A complete separation needs to happen, as the two peoples are utterly incompatible.

And the Republican-majority House has presented a bill to de-fund the EPA.

Just kidding.

Well, you can bet good money Romney won’t do anything about it. The Bush’s didn’t. Reagan, I believed, stopped some of their stupid crap but had a Dem Congress so couldn’t get rid of it.

Bush and the GOP had a chance and didn’t do anything in the 2000’s to reign in big government.

“I don’t have a Way of Life Act that I can enforce - I’ve got a Clean Air Act, I’ve got a Clean Water Act, a Safe Drinking Water Act” that can be used to enforce green ideals, Armendariz says

Oh my Lord, I knew it was bad but this? Has anyone read all this:

Clean Air Act?

Clean Water Act?

Safe Drinking Water Act?

...and now this?

Way of Life Act?

HELP ME I'M DROWNING IN RED TAPE!

How do we "re-act" or pro-act" to all these acts? There's more acts that the apostles in THEE good book.

Yup. Preferably at gunpoint so they won’t do it again.

Not what I'd choose, but I don't think they'll have it any other way.
