Rick Perry: Americans should be 'unhinged' by decision to reject Keystone pipe path
Fox News ^ | January 18, 2012 | Nick Kalman

Posted on 01/18/2012 9:46:14 AM PST by Cincinatus' Wife

..."It doesn't surprise me but it's again -- the president's focused more on the next election than on the next generation.

"Getting this country independent of foreign sources of crude from countries that are not our friends is really problematic. So this Canadian oil, there's a possibility we could lose it to China with that decision so I hope Americans will really become unhinged with that decision because it is a really bad decision for our country, for energy independence and sends a horrible message at a time that were headed to $4 and $5 oil or excuse me $4 or $5 gasoline, to have a neighbor who's willing to sell us crude that is available."

The Perry Plan: Energizing American Jobs and Security

The Perry Economic Plan: Cut, Balance and Grow

[snip] “Dynamic Tax Score for RickPerry.org, Inc. Proposal:

Based on the higher GDP estimates forecast by the dynamic scoring exercise, the Perry proposal will not only lead to an increase in overall economic activity and jobs, but will also lead to higher federal revenues in the long term. In fact, the analysis suggests that revenues could be as much as $406.8 billion higher than under the static model by 2020, and could be as high as 19.5 percent of GDP.

The dynamic score of the proposal suggests that lower flatter taxes could generate both more revenue than the current tax code, and significantly more economic growth over time. With increasing demands on the Federal government from growing entitlements, higher pension expenses and interest on the debt, it will be necessary to increase the size of the economy – and the tax base – in order to generate significantly higher revenues. Table 7 shows how the Perry proposals would do this over a seven year period.’ [snip] Tax Proposal Score PDF

That route goes right to Texas. Obama just hates Perry and sure doesn't want him in the Prez mix.

Obama doesn't know what the hell to do with Newt...but you can be sure Obama is plotting....and it's dirty.

That number was once in the 60s who thought so.

There is hope.

The problem is that Romney is beginning to pull away in polls among Republican primary voters...

He appears to be strengthening. The non Romneys appear to be weakening...whether individually or as a group.

And no, that is not Rick Perry’s fault nor his supporters fault.

Gov. Perry's already battling the Obama Cabal. He's fighting the Energy Dept, Commerce Dept., Education Dept., the EPA, Homeland Security.....well, I guess just about all parts of the Federal BOOT pressing down on Texas (on all the states). And he's stopped them in some cases and keeps pressing forward in other suits.

Hell, he's even run a campaign against David Axelrod and won.

Currently our redistricting map here in Texas is tied up in the Supreme Court (this will bump Texas out of the Super Tuesday vote) and our Photo Voter ID Bill is sitting on Eric Holder's desk, awaiting his approval.

The country would have a reprieve if Perry could get a foothold and battle Obama and then the K-Street-Wall Street gang. It would be something. But that is why he has been alternately attacked and ignored — the powers that be are not going to give that control up without a knock-down, drag-out battle.

It makes me sick that Perry has the answers and yet he's being rejected. I see no answers of substance coming from Newt. He talks great and he can provide us with hope but as far as having a solid foundation of accomplishment, it isn't there. He's all over the place.

Santorum does not have a good conservative voting record and yet both are polling better than Perry. I don't get it.

We say we want another Reagan and yet we're rejecting him.

And I think it will end as badly for us as it did for the Jews in Germany if it goes any longer than this year.

Sadly, I think the die is cast and the course set is not reversible without disaster. We are headed for the big rocks now.

Of the current field of pubbies only Gingrich understands how critical the situation really is and only with the help of an excellent VP and a willing congress can any of his ideas be executed to completion in time to do any good.

It's sunset in America with the leadership we now have. "Leadership" in our party sit on their hands not endorsing the strongest candidate, the governor of Texas who has the platform and the record. I guess the Party has no time for conservatives.

The answer is to ignore the media - they can have all the dirt they want - screw’m - we just don’t listen - whether it’s true or not! Voters react to what they hear - we can see it in the polls - it’s nuts! mitt with his lying ads and the candidate drops accordingly. They are using voters as fiddles. They must be laughing their butts off! Probably taking bets on the side.

January 13, 2011 West Virginia: Agency Revokes Permit for Major Coal Mining Project “WASHINGTON — The Environmental Protection Agency revoked the permit for one of the nation’s largest mountaintop-removal coal mining projects on Thursday, saying the mine would have done unacceptable damage to rivers, wildlife and communities in West Virginia. It was the first time the agency had rescinded a valid clean water permit for a coal mine. …….”

I’m not blaming it on leadership. I’m blaming it on the voters. All of us have the opportunity to vote for him, yet for some reason they choose to ignore the opportunity they have before them.

I blame the voters too. But they've been taught to be followers -- and the leadership sits silent.

Romney’s Troubling Appointments (Mitt's environmental policy team now works for Obama) …………….“"EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson has taken most of the fire from Republicans as her agency rolls out a slew of controversial new climate and clean air rules. But [Gina] McCarthy, the EPA assistant administrator of the Office of Air and Radiation, has taken on much of the heavy lifting of writing, structuring, and implementing the rules.

“Lisa’s the coach and Gina’s the quarterback” in the work of rolling out new clean air regulations, said Daniel Weiss, an energy and climate policy expert at the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank with close ties to the Obama administration. “She’s running the plays, improvising on the line.”

Rick Perry’s Air War (with the EPA) “…..Texas alone opted for the unfriendly approach. It’s the only state that did not issue a plan for compliance—and Perry has made it clear that Texas has no intention of complying. The move was a blatant slap to the Obama administration—and once again gave Perry the national spotlight. Defying the climate rules offered him the perfect opportunity to loudly decry the science of global warming—which in his book Fed Up! he calls a “contrived phony mess that is falling apart under its own weight”—and to slam EPA as a “rogue agency” with an “activist mind-set” that has “targeted Texas.” Such rhetoric is viral catnip to the tea party voters who could help catapult Perry to the 2012 presidential nomination…”

_____________________________________________________

"Another new measure made tightening air quality permits on the oil and gas industry more difficult. That law, which Perry signed in June, requires the Texas environmental agency to analyze the effect of new regulation on the economy - including how it might hurt a company - before implementation. The economic impact could override the environmental benefit of the new regulation. The new law reflects Perry's contention that global warming is a questionable theory and that regulation always creates an adverse business climate." Perry Slashed Environmental Enforcement in Texas

_______________________________________________________

Dec 30, 2011: Statement by Gov. Rick Perry on Court Order to Stay Cross State Air Pollution Rule “Gov. Rick Perry today issued the following statement regarding the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals' decision to grant Texas' request for a stay to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Cross State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR):

"Today’s court decision to stay the implementation of the CSAPR is a preliminary step in the right direction to end the job-killing mandates passed down by the Obama Administration and the unelected bureaucrats at the EPA. The court was right to stay this highly flawed, job-killing rule that was based on inaccurate and incomplete information. Texas will now have a chance to discuss the devastating impact that this rule will have on our state's economy and electric reliability – an opportunity that we were not given by the Obama Administration’s out of control EPA when they adopted the rule."

Well, from what I’m picking up, the only thing that really matters is stopping Romney, so they’ll vote Newt because he doesn’t need a teleprompter. It was he who allowed the Conservative agenda to come to a screeching halt when he was compromised and potentially blackmailed, by Clinton. They became friends. Today news says Clinton says there is absolutely no difference between Romney and Newt. But real issues like the the pipeline and jobs and the economy? Can we just move along? Governor Perry is just so, you know.

A friend and I spend a lot of time discussing all the factors that goes into selecting a winning candidate.

Now, if it's true that Republicans select their candidate based on who ran before and whose turn it is now, then we're looking at our NEXT nominee, as well as our current one.

That pretty much describes how I feel too. I have a sinking feeling of deja vu, reliving 2008 all over again. Accelerating and pressing on even harder now to finish my survival prep, it's going to be a rough ride.

Glad I'm old and got to live my youth back in the good ol' USA - I'm afraid I won't live long enough to see those days again.

“I feel like a Jew in early 30’s Germany”.

I actually coined that phrase in the early 1990’s. People do not fully grasp that, though the Jews had no say in things, much of the world heralded what Adolf was doing for his nation and pulling it out of the pit in which it found itself.

But the Jews had no say, and this, as time marched on, escelated, culminating in the great evil we are all aware of today.

Interestingly, though, Stalin killed more Jews than did Hitler.

But I digress. What I noticed in the 90’s and is screamingly obvious today, is that I am completely out of touch with American culture. It was only exacerbated by my eliminating TV from my life in 1997.

But it has given me clarity. It is why, in 2008, I bought a small farm in rural Kentucky and, in 2010, moved there from my home of 45 years, Seattle. It doesn’t guarantee safety, but it mitigates the risk. And it really will get VERY ugly this year and almost certainly throw the world into a very nasty hot war.

Just like the seemingly benign early 30’s Hitler eventually did.

A good issue to discuss. The process is very broken it seems.
Part of the problem is that so many people are uninformed and disengaged.
And “activists” are the ones that drive things on all sides.

I guess this is where the historians come in. Maybe things are no worse now than 100 years ago or some other time frame.

Obama’s denial of the pipeline is a disgrace! He claims to want to create jobs but his decision prevented the creations of thousands.

Perry needs to call a press conference and blast Obama. He needs to do something to get attention on this issue and it could create the surge he needs!

Perry is the only Washington outsider I trust to reduce the size and intrusion of big government!

If he was president, Perry would have approved the pipeline in a heartbeat!

I'm going to repost this again - most of you know that I'm not a Perry fan, but in this instance, Perry knows about what he's talking about.

One that I came across recently that surprised and impressed me was that he made a trip to China in 2010 and strongly encouraged the Chinese to invest in Texas' oil and gas industry. Guess what? They did. To the tune of $2 billion being invested in Texas oilfields. This video was recorded not long after he made the trip to China - he talks about the trip around 9:40 into the video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgjFXCcz2g4

The result? Later that year:

http://www.chron.com/business/energy/article/Move-by-Chinese-to-lift-S-Texas-boom-to-new-high-1617593.php

China's national oil company, CNOOC, will spend $2.2 billion to drill in partnership with Chesapeake Energy Corp. in the Eagle Ford shale, a rich oil and gas formation that lies under 11 counties.

Exploration in the Eagle Ford already has brought newfound prosperity to South Texas' hardscrabble farming and cattle country, and Chesapeake said the ramped-up drilling could bring 20,000 jobs to the region.


See these boots that Perry gave the Chinese foreign minister on his trip to China?



Think of each one of those boots representing a $1 billion investment in Texas oilfield, or 10,000 jobs. And there is more to it than that - he also got the Chinese to invest $1 billion into a pipe manufacturing facility in Texas.

It didn't happen overnight either. Perry worked for months on getting the Chinese to invest.

This is Perry hosting a reception with the Chinese Consulate General of Houston a few months before he made his trip to China:



While other candidates have talked about trade wars with China, Perry went to China and brought back Chinese investments. Perry talks about his foreign relations experience with Mexico, but he really should be talking about his foreign relations experience with China.

Did Obama go over to China and get them to invest billions in our oil and gas industry? I don't think so. He's only interested in shipping jobs to China. Perry is interested in bringing Chinese money here.
