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.

OMG!!! Ruth Bader Ginsburg Voted Best Real-Life Hero At MTV Awards

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Monday was crowned the best real-life hero at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.

The 86-year old judge — whose 2015 biopic The Notorious RBG help cement her as a cultural icon among Liberals — beat out tennis star Serena Williams, WWE wrestler Roman Reigns, and comedian Hannah Gadsby to take him the award.

Though it wasn’t a clean sweep for Ginsburg last night.

The RGB documentary lost the “Best Fight” category for “Ruth Bader Ginsburg vs. Inequality” to “Captain Marvel vs. Minn-Erva.”

The justice was absent from the ceremony in Santa Monica, California.

Last December, Ginsburg had surgery to remove cancerous growths on her left lung. She was released from the hospital in New York four days later and recuperated at home.

Earlier this year, Ginsburg missed three days of arguments, the first time that’s happened since she joined the court in 1993. Still, she was allowed to participate using court briefs and transcripts.

Ginsburg has had two previous bouts with cancer, in 1999 and 10 years later.

Flashback: Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Pregnant Woman Is Not A ‘Mother’

Celebrated liberal U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg argued in an opinion released Tuesday that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.”

“[A] woman who exercises her constitutionally protected right to terminate a pregnancy is not a ‘mother’,” Ginsburg wrote in a footnote, which in turn responded to another footnote in the 20-page concurring opinion by Justice Clarence Thomas in the Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky Inc. case.

As Breitbart News’ legal editor Ken Klukowski reported, the case concerned a law signed by then-Governor (now Vice President) Mike Pence of Indiana in 2016, which required that the remains of an aborted fetus (or baby) be disposed of by cremation or burial. The law also prohibited abortion on the basis of sex, race, or disability alone.

The Court upheld the first part of the law, but declined to consider the selective-abortion ban until more appellate courts had ruled on it.

In his lengthy opinion — which delighted pro-life advocates, and distressed pro-choice activists — Thomas wrote that “this law and other laws like it promote a State’s compelling interest in preventing abortion from becoming a tool of modern-day eugenics.” He traced the racist and eugenicist beliefs of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, and warned that the Court would one day need to wrestle with abortion as form of racial discrimination.

In a footnote, Thomas attacked Ginsberg’s dissenting opinion, which argued the Court should not have deferred to the legal standard used by the litigants in the lower courts, but should have subjected the Indiana law to a more difficult standard instead, since it impacted “the right of [a] woman” to an abortion.

Ginsburg cited no legal authority for her claim that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.” The claim that a fetus is not a child is central to pro-choice arguments.
