“I am scared to death for our country”:energy CEO says Obama destroying low-cost energy with EPA
foxnews copy on therightscoop.com ^ | June 20, 2014

Posted on 06/20/2014 5:23:29 PM PDT by Whenifhow

Murray Energy CEO Robert Murray says he is scared to death for this country, for poor people, those who live on fixed incomes and for people who are retiring.

Murray says Obama is illegally using the EPA and the Clean Air Act to take over the US Electric Power Grid and in the process he’s destroying low-cost energy.

Murray points out that coal is only 4 cents per kilowatt-hour and Obama wants to replace it with renewable energy sources, wind and solar, that cost 22 cents per kilowatt-hour.

By 2030, according to Murray, we will be down from 40% coal-fired electricity to 14% coal-fired electricity.

Shocking discovery. Since Zero basically told everyone that was the plan from when he was a itty bitty Senator.

He’s already destroyed the healthcare system, just for starters, he may as well finish the job, which was his intention all along anyway. This is what he meant by “fundamentally transforming America”-burning it down and salting the earth.

-— He just now figured this out? -—

Give him credit for speaking out. Most CEOs either fear the EPA, OSHA and the IRS, or have been coopted with special favors.

Not surprising a coal company exec objects to Democrats’ war on coal. He may be just slow-witted, as his all-out support for Boehner and Romney indicate.

In my view it has little to do with ideology and much to do with enriching crony capitalists with interests in “green” energy.

When it comes to the Chicago Mob, or the Clinton Crime Family, just follow the money.

Searched for the video on you tube and this CEO has been sounding the alarm for a while.

In this particular video he is clear about how unlawful Obama’s actions are.

Why is anyone surprised? Obama said he would do this. They need to realize that if he says he’s going to do something that hurts America, he ain’t lying.

What I can’t wrap my brain around is why are all those democrats standing with him?

That’s all communism, despite what its adherents say, is. It’s no coincidence that all of the billionaires in Russia were all high level bureaucrats in the Communist party.

On the otherhand; we have no way of knowing how many visits from Obamas shock troops have visited members of Congress the Supremes key FBI, CIA, NSA and IRS officials.. maybe probably most State reps.. and even local offcials.. in some places..

With an offer they could not turn down..

“I am scared to death for our country”

The fault is ours. Abe warned me about this back in 1968. He will explain from "the other side."

You initiated a policy to tolerate the Marxist-Alinsky radicals and let them rant; not only has it not ceased but was constantly augmented by decades of infiltration and indoctrination. You now have two Americas. In my opinion, it will not cease until a crisis shall have been reached and passed. A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half statist and half free; I do not expect the house to fall; but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other.

Well, he did promise that energy prices would "necessarily skyrocket" under his policies.

You can't say the guy lie about that.

Anyone who knows Obama knows that. It is what he said he would do if elected. He was elected[At least in 2008]. What did they expect?

Oh c’mon, stay on point.. don’t lose focus here! This is about females voting with their emotions. They cared not about his Marxist agenda. He was a black man with swagger who could talk and that was ALL that mattered. Throw in a pinch of sexual fantasy and that was all it took.

Good question! When an elected Republican does something we dislike we are loud and clear - some times too much so!

But Democrats rarely pass judgment on their elected.

Geez! We really got to get the idea going that there is NO SUCH THING AS RENEWABLE ENERGY. Using wind one day and then using wind the next day does not mean it's been renewed.

Sunlight does not "renew" itself.

There are tons of guys right here at FR who voted for candidates who had no chance of winning (for Tom Hoefling for example)...just so they could vote for some loser they thought was right (and God bless em).

But their wasted vote put Obama in the WH...and now he is destroying the country.

How's that working out for ya?

“Murray says Obama is illegally using the EPA and the Clean Air Act to take over the US Electric Power Grid and in the process he’s destroying low-cost energy.”

And who will king Buckwheat send to shut down power plants?

Maybe 400 fat slobs armed with glocks and 1.2 billion rounds of cop-killer bullets with an effective range of 50 meters.

I bet patriots armed with rifles can take care of that.

It’s past time for states to tell Buckwheat to stuff it.

When you find the ballot where my vote for someone other than Obama magically transformed into a vote for Obama, please contact the AZ Dept of elections and report the fraud.

Or are you a Common Core kid that does not grasp how votes are actually counted?

Has anyone ever figured out why our elected representatives refuse to stop Obama; by that, I mean his non-legislative forays against our country, which in large measure, are more destructive than his legislative agenda.

Just for once I'd like to see these people actually defy Obama and his EPA - just stay on line and force them to come out with some law enforcement and actually shut them down.

Thomas Conrad Hoefling got something over 40,000 votes nationwide for President.
I doubt that was enough in any one state to change the electoral vote for president.
Heck he got 17% against the Iowa governor just recently. A vote getting machine he is.

Some folks cannot be helped, they simply must be stopped or outnumbered. What would it take to turn these modern-day Stepford Wives off from blindly supporting everything Obama? What would it take to make this group of destructive zombies sit out the next elections vs participate? That is what we must figure out.

I agree with your basic premise. However, third party votes did not elect Obama.

He beat Romney by 4,982,296 votes. Total votes for other than the two main candidates totaled 1,918,776.

What really elected Obama was the Romney or anti-Obama voters who stayed home, not those who voted for somebody else.

Actually, I am a math major (first in my grad school class). Logic is the basis of that.

Your failure to vote for a person who could win gave Obama voters their majority. Wasting your vote and then bragging about it is nauseating to those of us who saw Obama for the Marxist/Muslim he is.

But thx to your over-weaning pride and stubborness...he won.

Thx pal...we could have used you in trying to keep this commie out of the WH...but at least you still have your (insert something worthless here).

It’s easy to miss. Democrats ‘talk the talk’ of caring about the poor - and they DO sound sincere, but it’s a lie. Look at their actions and who benefits - and it’s the same: white liberal elites. The people who are hurt is “everyone else”... in one degree or another.

All pretty meaningless, unless one adds the cost per kilowatt-hour for natural gas, which is what is replacing most of the coal.

What really elected Obama was the Romney or anti-Obama voters who stayed home, not those who voted for somebody else.

They were all needed.

And ultimately, Obama stole the election because the margins were so thin it only took the votes of a few dead Illinois voters and the multiple votes of a few Obamaphone recipients.

But then we have these Tom Hoeflin supporters who argue that they voted for principle and not against Obama.

Well their frikken principle didn't win!

Obama won...and now he's destroying the country!

How frikken dumb are you?

A vote for Mitt is a vote against Obama. That's the way they are counted.

Do you think that all non-Obama votes are somehow attributed to a fictitious non-Obama candidate...and if said candidate wins, Obama loses?Obama won because you wasted your vote.

Thx!
