Obama uses executive order in sweeping takeover of nation's climate change policies (!!!)
Fox News ^ | 11/1/2013 | Perry Chiaramonte

Posted on 11/01/2013 6:01:28 PM PDT by LiveFreeOrDie2001

Snip: Through the stroke of a pen, President Obama on Friday used his executive powers to elevate and take control of climate change policies in an attempt to streamline sustainability initiatives – and potentially skirt legislative oversight and push a federal agenda on states. The executive order establishes a task force of state and local officials to advise the administration on how to respond to severe storms, wildfires, droughts and other potential impacts of climate change. The task force includes governors of seven states — all Democrats — and the Republican governor of Guam, a U.S. territory. Fourteen mayors and two other local leaders also will serve on the task force. All but three of those appointed are Democrats. The task force will look at federal money spent on roads, bridges, flood control and other projects. It ultimately will recommend how structures can be made more resilient to the effects of climate change, such as rising sea levels and warming temperatures. “We're going to need to get prepared. And that’s why this plan will also protect critical sectors of our economy and prepare the United States for the impacts of climate change that we cannot avoid,” Obama said last June, when he first launched a Climate Action Plan.

"Mr. Obama -- you've taken over the nation's healthcare system! There's no going back now! A huge portion of the economy is not in your hands -- what do you do for an encore?? Are you going to Disney World?"

"Heck no! I'm taking over the climate!!!"

And of course the Congress will say nothing and let him get away with stealing more of their power.

WTH are we paying a Congress for. Run them off the Hill and turn the place into Condo’s.

OK!! Everybody pay attention!

Lesson for today:

1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.

2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls our climates.

3. The earth is a rock.

4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.

5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.

Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?

The task force includes Govs. Jerry Brown of California, Jay Inslee of Washington and Neil Abercrombie of Hawaii, as well as Delaware Gov. Jack Markell, Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin and Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn. The panel also includes several big-city mayors, including Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter and Houston Mayor Annise Parker. All three are Democrats.

This is called a Politburo.

So how are we different from the Soviet Union again...?

The despicable Tip O’Neil and that loathsome Robert Byrd would have *never* ceded *any* congressional power ever, even to a Democrat president. But Boehner and McConnell seem fine with it all.

As I’ve posted in the past “get the hook” (Vaudeville hook), and yank this sucker off the stage.

There has to be a way, and we have to motivate our so called representation to action. We can’t survive with this idiot in the WH playing “ruler” anymore.

That’s what I’m saying! Obama has completely overstepped his bounds, and if not held to account, it’s going to be over soon.

“So how are we different from the Soviet Union again...? “

We refuse to protect our borders and we re elect illegal immigrant imposters as our president, also we destroy our manufacturing base and outlaw energy production, also we inflate our currency to astronomic levels and sustain our economy by borrowing from our enemies, not to mention destroying our military.

McCain, Graham, McConnell et. al. have scooted their desks over and right into the aisle, thereby eliminating any division between parties.

"Here we are broke and Obama is going to spend a small fortune on this pie in the sky."

This is further proof that liberalism is a mental disease.

The irony of this is that if he let the Keystone pipeline be built and opened up more reserves for fracking, he'd probably create enough jobs to make his health care scam work.

High crimes (no misdemeanors). Just how in the Hell does he keep getting away with this??? Can’t wait for he next round of ‘recess appointments’ during the next break.

So, now he can claim he fulfilled his promise to the environazi’s. It is going to take a decade at least to undo the damage he’s done. The rest I can’t say in a public forum.

Over the years I have grown to truly detest that man and his she-wookie spouse.

I have only one Lord, and He sure as hell isn’t that turd of a sorry excuse for a man.

When push comes to shove, he’ll have several million patriots marching off to retrieve the White House.

At this point, I'd bet Obama could nullify the 22nd Amendment by executive order with nary a peep from either Boehner or McConnell. I am *not* joking.

Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?

You keep repeating this list on multiple threads. Which is good, because it gives us time to 'study'.

Answer: They do not plan to control the sun, nor the climate, nor the weather. They are only doing what they have always done.

Create a problem, or the appearance of a problem, and then ask for money to 'fix' it. The goal is to get the money. Fixing 'it' or controlling 'it' is not part of the goal or plan. Only the money, and the power that gives them over others.

I guess this explains why there were climate hecklers at his Boston speech yesterday. Was it yesterday? Anyhoo...

I suppose he can spend however much he wants, too. Didn’t congress hand over the purse until February? Heck, they’re trying to hand it over forever.

If this stands we’re done.
