Between conservatives focusing all their attention on the successes/failures of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., and the left having a meltdown over the supposed “racism” and unprecedented disrespect of Clint Eastwood’s “Empty Chair” routine, little attention has been given to an executive order issued last Thursday by President Barack Obama that targets industrial “efficiency” and carbon emissions.

“Today, we are taking another step to strengthen American manufacturing by boosting energy efficiency for businesses across the nation,” said President Obama.

“This action will cut costs, increase efficiency, and help our businesses create strong, middle class jobs.  We’ll continue to do everything we can to put more people back to work and build an economy that lasts,” he added.

The order, which aims to increase the number of cogeneration plants in the U.S. by 50 percent by 2020 and slash carbon emissions by 150 million tons per year, is the administration’s latest effort to “deploy cleaner and more efficient energy production in the country by working around political resistance to climate change and ‘green’ energy legislation on Capitol Hill,” Reuters reports.

a little too late arent ya...why couldnt he do something good for the people and not just himself. surprised he hasnt made an exec order on a specific day to go golfing. what a useless prez we have. he is just trying to do enough good for a small amount of time to get the votes. he will fool some, but wont fool me.

THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS BYPASS CONGRESS, ARE POLITICALLY MOTIVATED FOR THE ELECTION, AND PROBABLY WILL COSTS MANUFACTURERS MILLIONS, WHICH WILL PREVENT HIRING AND EXPANSION. ALSO IF YOU LOOK INTO MANY OF THESE GREEN POLICIES, THEY WILL HAVE LITTLE EFFECT ON THE AIR QUALITY.

this is another UNCONSTITUTIONAL EXECUTIVE ORDER issued (dictated) by this "president" congress must confront these executive orders and recind them.

Another "Executive Order" huh?  He's going to create more middle class jobs by mandating even more regulations on an already overburdened system (thanks to EPA) manufacturing? Ya gotta be kidding????? Anyone who believes this BS deserves everything they get. Just keep writing them checks BO. It doesn't matter if the bank account is overdrawn. Just isssue another executive order to fix it.....What a moron.

Jerome Corsi was on Coast to Coast AM with George Noori discussing how he believes the U.S. will be the top oil producer by 2017.

Coast to Coast with Jerome Corsi

    This nations first black president  ( not counting Bill Clinton )  has proven that any energy , including green is obviously better than black energy .  I say that because evreytime he anounces  something to increase efficiency and jobs the result is , in fact , just the opposite .  Please do not take this as racism , I am NOT a racist . I am merely making a play on words because of the REAL effect of green jobs , which is higher unemployment and lower wages .

I believe Clinton was more black than Obama.HUH?

He is just doing crap last minute to help himdelf look good.  Sorry you fraudulent reject, we see what you are doing and just like his move with immigration.  This guy makes me sick.

I wish he would issue an executive order to vanish from the world.Maybe he will vanish to Hawaii in january 20th 2013.I can dream cant I?

More obama, treason.

Haven't we witnessed enough bull**** green energy(Solyndra) in America.To get companies up to his standards will increase cost to millions and what does that get?More unemployed.Green energy is 3 times more expensive to manufacture then implement.King Hussein Obama is on a mission to destroy America. We have to fight harder than ever before to get this socialist/communist out of office.

Can't we just send him the fat as**d bit** the 2 O'bummer jrs and the dog to the first penal colony on Mars ,yeah another first for O'crakhead!  I know the animal rights activist are going to be pi**ed off about the dog having to go too. but every one else will be overjoyed and anybody thaat is upset well you know you can't make everybody happy.

ALERT ALERT

YIKES!!! Chelsea Clinton Emphatically States A Person With A Beard And A Penis Can ‘Absolutely’ Identify As A Woman

  • The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification
  • In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons about transgender self-identification
  • Chelsea Clinton replied ‘yes’ emphatically when asked if someone with a beard and penis can ever be a woman
  • ‘It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently,’ Hillary said
  • Aitkenhead said Hillary became ‘uneasy’ when the question was asked while Chelsea shot a ‘furious stare’ at the journalist as her mother answered
  • Hillary added: ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw’

(Daily Mail) – It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo.

The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, ‘Yes.’

However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked ‘uneasy’, and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting.

‘Errr. I’m just learning about this,’ Hillary responded. ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.’

The Clintons sat sown with Aitkenhead to promote the book they co-authored, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.

The book features Danica Roem, the first trans woman elected to a U.S. state legislature.

According Aitkenhead’s account, she tells Hillary during the interview that many British feminists of Hillary’s generation have a problem with the idea that a ‘lesbian who doesn’t want to sleep with someone who has a penis is transphobic.’

Hillary nods in agreement, while Chelsea ‘stiffens and stares at me’, according to Aitkenhead.

The journalist then adds that many women of Hillary’s generation are uncomfortable with biological males sharing women’s bathrooms.

‘I would say that, absolutely,’ Hillary nods firmly. ‘Absolutely. Yes.’

That’s when Chelsea begins shooting a ‘furious stare’ at Aitkenhead, who points it out to her.

‘I’m a terrible actor’, Chelsea laughs.

Chelsea then says she is thrilled with the National Health Service’s decision to assign patients to single-sex wards according to the gender they identify as, instead of their biological make up.

‘How can you treat someone if you don’t recognize who they feel and know in their core they are?’ Chelsea says.

‘And I strongly support children being able to play on the sports teams that match their own gender identity,’ she adds. ‘I think we need to be doing everything we can to support kids in being whoever they know themselves to be and discovering who they are.’

At this point Hillary looks conflicted.

‘I think you’ve got to be sensitive to how difficult this is,’ Hillary says. ‘There are women who’d say [to a trans woman], ”You know what, you’ve never had the kind of life experiences that I’ve had. So I respect who you are, but don’t tell me you’re the same as me.” I hear that conversation all the time.’

Despite the clear tension in the room, the pair say they don’t argue about this topic.

But according to Aitkenhead, ‘I get the impression they don’t like to present anything less than a united front to the world.’
