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

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
