Posted on 06/23/2010 5:22:33 AM PDT by RKBA Democrat
The federal government is shutting down the dredging that was being done to create protective sand berms in the Gulf of Mexico.
The berms are meant to protect the Louisiana coastline from oil. But the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Department has concerns about where the dredging is being done.
Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser, who was one of the most vocal advocates of the dredging plan, has sent a letter to President Barack Obama, pleading for the work to continue.

Obama wants this to be an uncontrolled disaster.
Our tax dollars at work. Worry about the effects of the sand dredging and not about the oil, which will kill everything it touches......
“Pleading” is not going to work with these criminals.
It already is..............
That is the only conclusion. He is purposely NOT doing anything that can help slow the flow of oil or protect the shoreline. He is actively fighting against every single protection of the gulf coast.
(of course if we listen to some in the media and a few on this board, this factor is not going to effect opinion of the Democratic party, but the Republicans are doomed for eternity due to 10 seconds of speech by Joe Barton).
Politically, and I guess practically stupid. So why?
Faced with an incoming missile from N Korea and the ability to shoot it down, the dimwits in this administration would probably, in a decision akin to the rationale used to stop dredging, urge the military to take no action because it would interfer with a potential nuclear reaction...a normal event on the sun and therefore not to be triffled with. That is of course unless the missile were aimed at their location at which time it would be all hands on deck.
Continue the work, use the Louisiana National Guard if necessary.
The entire kenyan administration is an uncontrolled disaster, every freaking day.
He wants the power and whatever it takes to get it.
Pray for America
Out of control beauocrats. The wildeyed lib beaurocrats see nobama as a freehand to do anything they always wanted to do and care less if any has a grain of common-sense.
Dredging is done all the time along the coasts...
0bama is really out to screw the people of LA, isn’t he? Not a day goes by in which this nefarious, fetid regime does something new to damage this country.
Elect a third world president, get a third world government. Did anyone really expect a different result?
How can he get his way (amnesty for votes, $$$ via fairy tale green energy) if these problems are actually attacked with common sense and fixed?
I had no idea she'd gone to work at Interior, but there you have it!
1) Feb 2010 - BP was fighting large cracks at the base of the Deepwater Horizon well for roughly ten days in early February. BP notifies the feds that things arent going well.
2) March BP cuts costs and cuts corners on safety as they carry on their work
3) March An engineer complains of practices on the rig, claiming that it almost blew up.
4) Obama announces that off-shore drilling will get a green light
5) Goldman Sachs sold 4,680,822 shares of BP in the first quarter of 2010
6) The CEO of BP starts dumping BP stock
7) April - The well explodes, killing 11 and beginning the spill
8) The federal government issues a moratorium on off-shore oil drilling.
9) The federal government is slow to act in dealing with the spill
10) The federal government will not ask foreign nations for help
11) The federal government will not use skimmers on hand to gather oil
12) Louisiana asks for permission to build sand berms to protect the LA coast.
13) The federal government dithers endlessly and declines to grant permission anyway.
14) Louisiana goes ahead and begins construction of sand berms.
15) The federal government orders that the construction of sand berms be discontinued.
It looks to me like this was meant to happen and meant to result in a massive environmental problem. I say the whole thing is more deliberate than accidental.
I thought Obama said he was in charge. Instead, it seems all the bureaucrats are in charge.
To destroy as much confidence as possible on domestic energy, of course.
yes he does and everyone should be asking why.
Is there any doubt in the mind of anyone that this REGIME is privately CELEBRATING the oil spill in the Gulf? Every opportunity to prevent a solution or easing of the disaster is being interfered with by one agency or the other of our government.
While the life and economy of a large and vital part of our South is being destroyed, the US Coast Guard is counting life vests, the Fish Department insists that PEOPLE count the least, the politicians thunder useless phrases, and, worse, at the behest of the US government those who have the knowledge, ability, and experience in dealing with this problem are ORDERED to keep away.
Those in government swear an oath to protect this country from “enemies, both foreign and DOMESTIC.”
Personally, I think the DOMESTIC threat is the most dangerous these days. Heaven help the USA.
You have GOT to be kidding!!!!!!
Either this or the federal government is so completely inept and tied up in conflicting mandates that it cannot possibly accomplish anything. Either way, it's an abject disaster and the country is completely screwed.
I sure hope Jindal tells them to “F” off. It’s his state, his responsibility to protect it.
Dare to arrest him and it’d be a PR nightmare for Oblunder.
FWIW what is the Community Organizer going to do...sue?
what does the most damage ..dredging or oil?
states should run this their way and deal with feds later..
Guess the Saudi’s hadn’t given their OK. Maybe after the Saudi king comes here he can give the green light.
Unless you examine the motives under which this makes sense,
then you’ll forever be scratching your head and saying “this makes no sense!”
But, given an understanding of the motives of this nihilistic crowd, their actions make perfect sense.
Maybe Nungesser will stop covering for Obama now.
Obama got to him weeks ago because he was too critical. He needs to let loose and rip Obama on CNN all night. If CNN cuts him, go to fox
Jindal needs to just defy them and keep it going. The problem with special interest group politics and coalitions is that no one can prioritize. Enviro’s each think they alone hold the key to the future of human civilization. In truth they are no smarter than an ancient Inca worshipping a sun God.
We will be a third world country before we can get rid of these clowns.
This is an excellent test for the 10th. That is STATE land being plagued, and the STATE can and should be first to respond with THEIR best interests first. The Feds have no jurisdiction UNLESS ALLOWED!
There are plenty of out-of-workers ready to do something besides sit and watch their livelihoods die.
I'd change that to:
10) The federal government will not accept foreign nations offers of help
Exactly. This administration isn't working with Jindal because he's a republican. Nungesser must have gotten his talking points after criticizing obama because after zero went down there, he said he was told to call the WH before he talks to CNN and Cooper.
It’s all about repaying the Unions. Keeping the Dutch out - so unions can skim the oil. Stopping Louisiana from using oil skimmers to protect their shore - so the unions can do it. Stopping the dredging and building of berms - that’s a union job!
But, where are the unions?
zero continues to overstep his authority. Like Arizona, this is a state’s rights issue to step in and take action when the federal government won’t.
Bobby Jindal (who I’m REALLY starting to like) needs to tell the feds to get the h#ll out of his state and let the men take care of things in Louisiana.
(The reference to “men” automatically excludes zero and his gang of thugs!
“...given an understanding of the motives of this nihilistic crowd, their actions make perfect sense”
TRUE....and I don’t know why I am STILL astounded by their repeated stupidity.
I second that! Get a whole bunch of armed Cajuns down there in a hurry!
agree..doesnt look like an accident anymore.
I used to say “never attribute to malice what can be explained by stupidity”,
but not with this crowd. My discernment has gone WAY up and my benefit of the doubt has gone way down. Their motives are EVIL. Every agenda item is in opposition to the Truth and Law of God.
When will a governor retake a true definition of federalism? POTUS is not any governor's boss! They answer to the people of their state.
Reasons why Federal Gov’t Halts Sand Berm Dredging:
1) Racial quotas not being observed.
2) Lack of Diversity Sensitivity training
3) TPS reports not submitted
4) Workers did not attend Multicultural Seminars.
5) Gay/Lesbian awareness conferences ignored.
6) One Sand Berm ship had a Crucifix on it violating separation of Church and State guidelines.
7) Not enough GreenPeace members involved with the dredging process.
8) Ships not Unionized
9) Too Many NRA members are in the crew
10) One ship had a Palin 2012 bumper sticker visible.
Cloward & Piven,look it up
There's no other way to look at it. Unbelievable.
There's no way this isn't intentional. I guess O has figured out he'll never be reelected so he's doing whatever he can, while he can, to create his idea of a "perfect" nation.
