The Obama administration took aim at the coal industry on Monday by mandating a 30 percent cut in carbon emissions at fossil fuel-burning power plants by 2030 -- despite claims the regulation will cost nearly a quarter-million jobs a year and force plants across the country to close.

The development of a Fascist State like Hitler had in 1930’s Germany, and what Obama almost has now in the nearly former USA, depends upon opposition leaders who refuse to lead the opposition, but continue to stay in power by support of their morally weak supporters.

The last attempt to oppose Obama failed when Boehner, Cantor, McConnell and McCain caved in to the stonewalling refusal to negotiate by Reid and Obama in late 2013 and early 2014.

Until effective voter pressure can be brought to bear on the Republicans and Democrats in the House and Senate to replace the Republican Leadership in the House and Senate, Obama will continue to “Fundamentally transform the United States of America” into the most powerful Fascist Empire that the World has ever known.

Will these opposition Congressmen and women act before the November 2014 Election, or will they continue to wait to lose again, as usual, to the Left Wing, low information Voter in November, 2014?

BTW, money and reason are wasted on multimillionaire career politicians as they cannot be bought or convinced - - - they are the hardened professional criminal politicians that we have, for decades, elected and tolerated, gratefully for the “free” stuff that they have bought our votes with.

Obama is just doing as he was raised up to do, and will never change.

Our opposition Republican Leaders are doing everything that they can to make sure Obama is successful, and they will never change.

The change must come from opposition House Members and Senators in “both” parties, before low-information voters have made up their minds about whether or not to continue the status quo.

The Summer of 2014 is the last chance for We, the People to force our House and Senate Members to change their leadership before Labor Day, 2014, when early voting begins?

Red Chinese smokestacks.

In 2007, China 'Forced World Bank' to Doctor Pollution Report.

Red China's State Environmental Protection Administration (SEPA), a cabinet ministry of the State Council, make noise but not much yet accomplished --- even after the mess of the Olympics --- regarding particulate emissions that travel up to the Arctic.

States: don't acquiesce to this, yet another, lawless and unconstitutional act by the federal government.

NULLIFY THE UNCONSTITUTIONAL ACT AND IMPEACH OBAMA.

Chinese coal fired plans and US coal fired plants aren’t even the same animal. We have cleaned up most of the real pollutants in coal. CO2 IS NOT a pollutant. In fact, we need it to grow plant life and make O2. We have had CO2 levels 4 times as high as now with colder temps. CO2 is not changing the temps. The Sun and Water vapor affect the Earth’s temp. The Sun has 11-17 year cycles of sunspot activity and that will affect the Earth’s temp. As sunspot activity rises, so will the temps. Ice has been melting for 20k years if you believe the scientists that study the Ice Age. I don’t expect that will stop until the next cycle. People have NO AFFECT an the weather. 3/4 of the Earth is ocean. If land were covered elbow to elbow, we couldn’t affect the weather. Climate change propaganda has spurred some sort of mental illness that won’t allow low information voters to comprehend even basic principles of science to the point they even argue with self evident measurements. If the temp is 75 deg, they will argue that it would have been 74 degrees if we just paid more money to Africa.

The pattern is repeating.
1) As with health care - create a crisis (here in energy).
2) Cause an industry’s collapse and
3) then rush in with the federal government to save that (nationalize) that industry.

It’s all part of Obama’s bullet-less war on America and capitalism

The money guys get cap & trade in this EPA regulation. Electric utilities will have to buy carbon credits as green power generation will never be enough to meet the new standards.

Carbon credits are financial instruments dreamed up by the money guys/Wall Street which make them money in putting together the instruments & trading them.

The credits offset the electric plant’s emissions with a bogus promise that a tree is planted in the Amazon or a non-existent company in neverland is pumping waste CO2 into the bedrock. These promises are poorly supervised as the heart of the deal is the paper financial instrument.

Menwhile we consumers pay more and get less reliable electricity.

Aside from the mentally ill and delusional, is there anyone who does not see that Clown Prince nobama and his communist followers hate Free America and hate Free Americans? These degenerate reprobates (including the Worst Lady, mooch-elle) hate your existence. Everything these criminal buffoons do is . They should be in prison and, then, exiled.

Natural gas. They’ve been funding the “greenies for decades. They would rather have 70 to 80% of power generation than the traditional 30 to 40%.
