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.

YES, Congress COULD stop the POS potus simply by IMPEACHING HIS ASS! podesta is another GREAT IDIOT in the REGIME!

If domocrats desire to control CO2 emmissions as green house gas then perhaps they can reduce the output by just stop breathing and talking.

Now Obama thinks he's a "God"

Why do all these we see upfront in media look like the Hitler Administration? Americans can stop this lie and refuse to become a third world nation if we start being honest about what is really happening! Many of us know, why is it that Democrat voters do not see facts? Abortions and alternate bedrooms should not be a reason to vote for destruction!

It is written and we see this coming because honor for what one does is not supported by those who do it! "A loaf of bread for a weeks wage!" Is that not worse than even what Communist enslaved people have to pay? Yes, about 20x! It is coming to America and the whole world if we do not take responsibility for what we do! A fool and their money are soon parted and Democrat voters do not see the light as they keep in the tunnel!

REMOVE THIS TRAITOR FROM THE WHITE HOUSE AND THEN THOSE THAT REFUSED TO FIGHT FOR AMERICA AND OUR RIGHTS! LOOK OUT RHINOS AND THE INSANE LIKE PELOSI!

   Yet another Commie baboonzo creep

The data collected from the core drilling in the Artic shows the world has been much higher with CO2 emissions than we have today, the scientists doing this research  have said the Democrats claims of global warming by cows and cars is a falsehood, this cycles over time and will return to normal again. We're spending many billions of dollars to hurt industry because of the Dems plans for other types of energy they have yet to perfect so in the mean time the fraud President destroys companies and mining to make it imperative to have every one spend money that is not there and commit us all to development of an energy that meets their requirements killing jobs and entire networks that were in place before holding us hostage to an idea, not a proven replacement of what we use today. He doesn't care that thousands of jobs are lost and business's going under because of the bogus claims.

What a MORON, someone please give the POTUS a science lesson. Limit CO2 and you limit the growth of plants, limit plant growth and you limit the production of O2. Mr. President can you comprehend this simple process?

Stick your illegal EOs up your a$$.  We are tired of you dreaming up more ways to kill this country then forcing the taxpayers to pay for it.  Are you out of your mind?  Quit destroying this country! Besides you are not eligible to even be here.

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.
