President Obama Issues Executive Order on Carbon Emissions and Industrial Efficiency

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

1 Billion Dollar Net Worth!!! Oberlin College Claims Poverty To Avoid Paying Punitive Damages To Gibson’s Bakery

Although IRS reports show the university is worth around $1 billion, Oberlin College still claimed poverty to avoid paying punitive damages to Gibson’s Bakery.

As Breitbart News reported this week, the far-left Oberlin College lost a defamation case filed by Gibson’s Bakery after a local jury found the university liable for falsely accusing the family bakery of racism.

The jury ordered Oberlin on Friday to pay Gibson’s $11.2 million in compensatory damages for defamation and intentional interference with a business.

Legal Insurrection reported on Thursday that “the jury awarded a total of $33 million in punitive damages, which will probably be reduced by the court to $22 million because of the state law cap at twice compensatory.”

Legal Insurrection has been following the case for two years — since the beginning — and reports that the school’s only defense against a sizable punitive award is to pretend it is poor, despite holding assets that amount to a billion — with a “b” — dollars and despite paying some of its staffers more than a half-million dollars a year:

Oberlin College was so hellbent on getting the message out that their cash liquidity was in such dire straits — as the eight-person jury was figuring out if they wish to add $22.4 million to the school’s legal verdict bill — that they brought out the school’s president, Carmen Twillie Ambar to the stand to tell that part the story.

“We’ve created deficits … and over the next ten years, if this continues, that is unsustainable and we will not exist,” Ambar told the jury. She even indicated the school’s grants — about $60 million a year from the school, and lots of students get those scholarships as only 10% of them pay the full $70,000 a year — were important to preserve as “the accessibility of education” was a key component of the school’s purpose.

However…

The college has more than $1 billion in funds and net assets according to the latest IRS 990 form, an endowment fund that had grown from $440 million to $887 million in the last 20 years, and because of its non-profit status, pays no taxes on any property it owns.

It also had 18 members of their administration making more than $100,00 a year. The president and chief financial officer of the school were both making more than $500,000 a year.

Grifters gonna grift…

The day after Donald Trump won the presidency, this nutball school apparently decided to take out its impotent woke-rage on this poor bakery, which has been part of the Oberlin community for more than a century.

It all started when three Oberlin students (who would later plead guilty in a plea deal) attempted to steal bottles of wine.

The proprietors caught the students and, while attempting to hold them until police arrived, were allegedly roughed up by the shoplifters. But because the students are black and the proprietors white — and with no respect for due process or facts — Oberlin staffers and students decided some vigilantism was in order and did everything in their considerable power to destroy this local bakery forever, to smite it off the map.

Classes were canceled so hundreds of students could protest in front of the small store while enjoying free food and drink, courtesy of the school. School staffers handed out fliers that basically described the family-owned bakery as the local branch of the KKK.

As a result, the bakery had to lay off almost all of its employees and barely avoided bankruptcy.

In the end, the three shoplifters said race had nothing to do with what happened.

For those of you interested in incurring $200,000 in debt before you even enter the workforce, it looks as though you can major in Mob Justice at Oberlin.
