Podesta: Congress Can’t Stop Obama On Global Warming

White House adviser John Podesta told reporters Monday afternoon that  Congress could not derail the Obama administration’s efforts to unilaterally  enact policies to fight global warming.

Podesta said that the president was committed to using executive orders to  pass regulations under the Clean Air Act to limit carbon dioxide emissions that  they say cause global warming.

“They may try, but there are no takers at this end of Pennsylvania  Avenue,” Podesta told reporters at a Monday press conference at the White  House.

Republicans and some Democrats in Congress have urged the Obama  administration to scale back their climate goals because of the adverse impact  of new regulations on the coal industry. Coal supporters have portrayed the  administration’s actions as the “war on coal” due to huge job losses in coal  states like Kentucky and West Virginia.

“We’re getting the living crap beaten out of us,” West Virginia Democratic  Sen. Joe Manchin told President Obama’s nominee to be the country’s top energy regulator last year.  “There has been nothing more beat up than coal.”

“They just beat the living daylights out of little West Virginia, but they  sure like what we produce,” Manchin told former nominee Ron Binz. “We could do  it a lot better if we had a government working with us as a  partner.”

Last year, Manchin eventually joined Republicans to oppose Binz’s nomination  to head the Federal Energy Regulatory Committee. Manchin was concerned that Binz  would promote renewable energy at the expense of coal power.

Republicans have also united to oppose many of Obama’s most controversial  global warming policies, introducing numerous bill in both houses of Congress  aimed at repealing regulatory actions. The latest Republican effort to derail  Obama’s climate goals came from Utah Sen. Mike Lee, who introduced legislation  to repeal all energy tax subsidies, which would hurt renewable energy  growth.

“Washington should not be using taxpayer money to pick winners and losers in  the energy industry,” Lee  said in a statement. “Consumer-driven, free-market competition provides a  much better way to ensure Americans have access to reliable, affordable  energy.

Obama has made 2014 his “year of action” — promising to use his executive  authority to implement various actions of the President’s agenda that are too  divisive for Congress to consider. Podesta was brought into the White House late  last year to help Obama find ways to use executive orders to unilaterally push climate policies.

Podesta authored a report  in 2010 outlining ways the president could use his executive authority to  push a progressive agenda, including unilateral actions on climate policy.  Podesta wrote that the president could use executive power to reduce U.S. carbon  dioxide emissions by 17 percent by 2020 — the very goal the Obama plans to meet  using his executive powers.

AMERICA FIGHTS MAKE BELIEVE ENEMIES WHILE REAL ONES DRAW CLOSER TO OUR THROATS. BRAINWASHING, MOVIES AND VIDEOS DRAIN OUR CHILDREN'S ABILITY TO RECOGNIZE A REAL THREAT. THE SOVIET EMPIRE FAKED COLLAPSE AND NOW WE SEE THE REAL EVIL THAT IT IS. EVEN IN THE RED HOUSE UNDER OBAMA BIN LENIN. IN SIX MONTHS WE WILL KNOW THE REAL SITUATION. PRAY WHILE YOU CAN AND REMEMBER A MOMENT OF SILENCE IS NOT A MOMENT OF PRAYER. IT IS A MUZZLE ON FREEDOM.

Does www.SpiritOfAmericaPartyRadioShow.com support OAS, Operation American Spring ? If not why ?

All I can do is curse and complain. This is just more of the same. The only thing that will stop this can't be said. Etc,etc,etc,etc,etc,infinity.

ellis, it can and must be said. We stop the destruction of America by restoring our Constitutional Republic.  It starts with charging Ovomit with his many crimes which include treason.  That effort begins in earnest on May 16 in DC with Operation American Spring.  http://www.operationamericanspring.org/

If the government complies with the demands of the American People, this restoration can be peaceful. However, if they refuse to comply, they leave us no choice but to implement other lawful means to restore our country for America is worth any price that must be paid to keep it from being totally destroyed by the traitors in government.

COL Riley and the supporters of OAS want a peaceful transition back to a Constitutional Republic.  If enough Americans support the movement, it can happen.

The only reason Congress can not stop obama on anything is because they have all either sold out to big money or failed to develope a backbone.  Congress has the power to stop obama in his track, but their failure to do so shows just how cowardly they are and how their prefence for self preservation far out weighs they sworn obligation to represent their constitutients.

What global warming ?

When Geo Soros bought these corrupt politicians,  he spent his $$$$$ well.   This WH is run by all Soros people.  Soros goal is to destroy the US.    Over the years he has placed his communists in our State, Fed govt,     In an interview Soros gave some years back.. he was asked the happiest time of his life.   One example he gave was when as a young boy ,  he sent his neighbors to "safety".   Where he guided them was to Nazi SS trucks and the ovens.   Where his people  are sending this country is to the same trucks, with the same result.

I think the biggest cause of global warming is all the hot air coming out of the mouths and asses of our government. this is God's planet and it doesn't end with global warming. Read Revelations.

More Tyranny from the Fraud in the White House and his back room cronies from Chicago and the Marxist Progressives promoting the NWO and Globalism.

Why does he need to sign a Executive Order? He has a phone and controls the EPA!
