Obama’s Proposed EPA Regulations

AmericanCatmist - Copy

We need scientific fact-checkers on the facts and statistics that Obama pulled out of his rear shared during his “weekly address” about forcing power plants to reduce carbon emissions.  Below, in bold type, are some of the “facts” and “scientific” claims he shared, with my comments in brackets:

Earlier this month, hundreds of scientists declared that climate change is no longer a distant threat – it “has moved firmly into the present.” [Show me a scientist who does not believe that the climate has constantly changed from the beginning of the world. Change is a reality; the causes are what remain in dispute.]

In fact, every four minutes, another American home or business goes solar. [Obama knows this how? At a rate of 131,400 changes per year, how long until everybody in the U.S. is “solar”? About 1000 years for households?]

We’re wasting less energy, too. [That’s okay. Obama’s policies will ensure that we pay more for less. In fact, he promised that his policies will make our energy costs “necessarily skyrocket.”]

This strategy [previous government regulations on gas mileage and energy-efficient appliances] has created jobs, grown our economy, and helped make America more energy independent than we’ve been in decades – all while holding our carbon emissions to levels not seen in about 20 years. It’s a good start. But for the sake of our children, we have to do more. [It’s as if he’s forgotten that the numerous “green energy” stimulus projects were abject failures and wastes of taxpayer money. Note the use of NLP. Storytelling. Building emotions. It’s only “common sense.” We “have to” do this for the “children”.  As for these new standards creating jobs, the Chamber of Commerce disagrees. Obama’s proposed standards will also bankrupt coal companies and throw even more people out of work than his policies already have. This is another promise Obama made long ago–to bankrupt energy companies that don’t knuckle under.]

This week, we’re unveiling these proposed guidelines, which will cut down on the carbon pollution, smog, and soot that threaten the health of the most vulnerable Americans, including children and the elderly. In just the first year that these standards go into effect, up to 100,000 asthma attacks and 2,100 heart attacks will be avoided – and those numbers will go up from there. [And he knows this how? Carbon dioxide does not cause asthma attacks. Carbon dioxide does not cause heart attacks. The precision of his numbers is fascinating, but he uses the weasel words “up to.” Again with the children, but now he adds the elderly. Who amongst us is against children and the elderly?]

These standards were created in an open and transparent way, with input from the business community. [Why do I suspect that this is the very type of statement that defines the Obama Rule, which is: If Obama forcefully says it’s so, then it’s not so. If he forcefully says it’s not so, then it is so.]

Now, special interests and their allies in Congress will claim that these guidelines will kill jobs and crush the economy. Let’s face it, that’s what they always say. [Hmm. Could it be that they “always say” this because it’s true and history has proved it true, especially during these  two Obama administrations?]

When we restricted cancer-causing chemicals in plastics and leaded fuel in our cars, American chemists came up with better substitutes. [Actually, Obama said that American “catmists” came up with better chemicals, at 4:55 in this video. That’s an American catmist, hard at work, at the top of the post.]

[T]he American auto industry retooled, and today, they’re selling the best cars in the world. [That’s why GM has so many recalls. His “best cars in the world” statistic appears to be false, but that’s okay; it’s the narrative that counts.]

In America, we don’t have to choose between the health of our economy and the health of our children. [That’s exactly right. We don’t. Obama is giving us another logical fallacy, a false dilemma; his speech is full of logical fallacies. Carbon dioxide is not ruining the “health of our children.” The reality is, however, that Obama’s proposed standards are designed to ruin the “health” of the U.S. economy; and he’s using “the health of our children” and “climate change” as his excuses.]

The old rules may say we can’t protect our environment and promote economic growth at the same time … [They do? He just got done telling us that in the past we’ve done exactly that!]

I refuse to condemn our children to a planet that’s beyond fixing. [Again with the children and a false premise. And he just told us there’s nothing that American ingenuity can’t accomplish! If we can destroy a planet, surely we can fix it. Nevertheless, Obama prefers to condemn “our children” to a future of “skyrocketing” energy costs, no jobs, and government dependency, if not a demeaning and depressing life in a Borg-like collective. Look up Agenda 21, if you don’t already know about it.]

There’s hope, however, because these new standards don’t go in effect for another year, after public comment (and after the mid-term elections, of course).

If nothing else, this “major” speech will get Bergdahl and the VA scandal off the front pages for a while.

Update 06/03/2014:  Another amazing statistic from Obama. “Up to” 6500 fewer deaths per year and 180,000 fewer school absences under the new EPA rules!  Imagine that.

  2. Stephen Kirouac, calling Bergdahl a “dirtbag” and “sympathizer,” was among many who seized on that speculation to criticize the rescued soldier.

    “He is a dirtbag that now should spend the next 20yrs+ in Leavenworth … his fellow soldiers were affected by his actions, he is a sympathizer and deserves to be tried for desertion,” said Kirouac, whose Facebook profile identifies him as a company commander at Fort Bragg, N.C.

    And it’s not just that, the soldier, who has converted to Islam, is alleged to have been teaching its fighters bomb-making skills. A Taliban deputy district commander in Paktika, who called himself Haji Nadeem, told the newspaper that Bergdahl taught him how to dismantle a mobile phone and turn it into a remote control for a roadside bomb.

    The Mooch is perfect for the job! She knows nothing, eats like a mule, spends taxpayer $$’s like tomorrow’s a rumor, has no skills, lost her law license, hates whites, & would love to continue the “get even with whitey” tour if the dummies in Illinois will vote for her! I bet that state often turns
    out 200-300% of the eligible voters & 100% of the dead ones!

  5. Hospital: 1 dead, 3 wounded in shooting at Seattle college campus

  6. The incident follows a spate of recent shootings on or near college campuses.

    Last month, according to police, Elliot Rodger killed 6 people & injured
    7 before turning his gun on himself in a rampage in Isla Vista, California, near two universities.

    7 people were Killed and 3 injured when a 43-year-old former student opened fire at a tiny Christian school, Oikos University, in Oakland, California, in 2012.

    A gunman Killed 5 people and injured 18 when he opened fire in a Northern Illinois University lecture hall in 2008.

    In 2007, 32 people were fatally shot in a dorm and classroom at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia before the gunman, Seung-Hui Cho, killed himself.

  7. Its in your face that the Bergpeople are muslamics.

    • It’d be hilarious what dumb twits they are if it weren’t for James Okeefe exposing just how much damage fascist dumb twits like them can do.

  10. Two things. Every time I see the pic of Bergdahl’s parents I think how familiar they look. And how Mrs. B does not match her husband. He is doing the muslim thing and she is definitely not; yet she smiles so pleased and adoring at him. Seeing them seems dejavu, like we have studied her face around these halls before.

    Second, I have watched the supposed Taliban-released release video of Bergdahl and it looks like he sneaked a salute to the guy releasing them. The reporters says the terrorist is telling Bergdahl to not come back to Afghanistan, but the tears on B. seem of sorrow, not of joy or relief.
    Still picture of the wiping tears/salute combo: https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSbLlfabALQCkfhIoTYne-9E_wws78vNNOmDPF3DuW1UvuEVZhn

    Video of the moment of tears/salute? http://www.nbcnews.com/watch/nightly-news/bowe-bergdahls-final-moments-in-captivity-273824835911

    • The Bergdahl couple could have walked out together as husband and wife. I know I would have walked out with my husband by me side…instead this seems rehearsed and she seems so pleased and comfortable walking arm in arm with O.
      You’re not the only one that feels a bit of de javou. Sort of Sandy Hookish, don’t yu think? All scripted for appearance sake.
      I’m beginning to feel so duped, cheated, and defiled every time I watch the president tele prompt his way into my life. Just like his glorious speech at the Normandy speech, Barry , the pretender ,pretends to have compassion for our military, but Barry never was in the service, never fought for anyone , except maybe Alteld Gardens (if he did mud at all)as a community organizer. He doth not understand anything he speaks of,yet tries to inject his false commiseration with people. It’s sickening now…even more so since this last Bergdahl snooze fest.

      • Actress>?? what do you think?for a photo op.
        The more crap that comes out…all the stories about what Bergdahl said at different times…all the conflicting personality traits…..reminds me of the latest weird news making stories….the shooter of those firs…and various other news stories…the death of the black ex-cop that burns up in a house in the woods….the Boston bombers,Sandy Hookers……on and on……oh and that young student that shot folks in the theater…….remember all the gobs of stuff he had back at his apartment…(over the top stuff)$$$$ tons of weapons, amp, explosives…….all the left messages , writings, emails, biographies(over the top phycological bios of these people). All of these have something in common….an overdone character or profile development of these people. Something only the CIA or someone like that is so zealous to portrait so the public gets enough of a dose . Only some CIA dude creative enough to go overboard and think people will buy it , is what I see . Very troubling. How much is enough, they aren’t ever sure , especially when they constantly need to supply the public with added information as the stories grow and change. THis is what it looks like to me. Haven’t you noticed the pattern? And then of course for the sake of national security there’s all the redacted info…incomplete paper trails…secrecy . Stinky, Stinky, Stinky Obama and his hired gangs.

        • oops, I meant to say the shooter of those ‘girls’.

          • gosh, I misspelled all sorts of stuff in both posts. Sorry ,I’ll try to do better.I could hardly understand what I just wrote.
            Speaking of WW11…..did anyone notice the last Navaho indian man that that served in a special capacity passed away He was 93. My niece had told me not too long ago about meeting some indians when she was in Arizona or N. Mexico and how she had asked them about something she learned in school….how the Navaho used their language during the war as none of the foreign intelligence could understand this language, so it was used as code for delivering intel and messages. Anyone know about this? The last Navaho man of 93 died this week and very little was mentioned about it. They provided a phenomenal service during the war and it’s not talked about much.

            • RIP

              He should be going in our US elementary History textbooks along with Miep Gies and Others.

              https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miep_Gies

            • Yes, I read something about the Code Talkers just recently, in the paper. It’s a wonderful story. In Santa Fe, I saw many works of art, covered with the American flag, by Native Americans who were very patriotic and very, very proud to have served their country, THIS country, during its many wars. Great patriots, all. God bless them.

    • WAH, there was a link to a TIME story about the Bergdahls somewhere here. On that page, there was a link to another TIME story about them, but the entire thing couldn’t be seen without a subscription. Never mind that, though, there was a pic of the Bergdahls from a few years ago. I had to look twice because the wife looked way different then. Longer hair now. Kind of creepy, the hand in hand thing. I agree with your take on his tears. My impression was that he did not want to go. Now, of course, there’s such a thing as Stockholm Syndrome, but there’s also the possibility that he might rightfully fear a court-martial. Butt, not to worry, for him: Barry will see to it that one way or another, he’ll be one who served “with honor and distinction.” Barry’s own rep depends upon it, so they will “make it so.” IMHO. Here’s the pic:

      • So, he had a beard back then, which was when? She is dressed more modest, so to speak, in this pic.

        • I think that was 2012. It was in TIME magazine. Certainly dressed more modestly. One story linked here said they are/were “devout Presbyterians”.

          • I have not heard of devout Presbyterians before. Devout is usually connected with high-ritual religions like devout Catholic or devout Muslim or devout Mormon but Presbetarians a Lutherans tend to get called devout Christians without denomination. Probably just my neck of the woods.

            • That was in the TIME piece that somebody linked over the weekend. Why it struck me is that previously, they were said to be “devout Calvinists”. In my own ignorance of various denominations, I thought Calvinist and Presbyterian were mutually exclusive. Even after reading up (admittedly on Wikipedia), I still don’t know whether it’s a contradiction or not.

              • yeag berdahl looks like a throwback of a 1800’s calvanist…I guess that’s what being a purist could mean. I mean, there’s something truly weird with that beard. Then too, why would Berdahl have to remind his son that he was his father?

      • that photo….prepared for what viewing audience. They look so serious. Do any of you have a photo like this? THe look on their faces…then notice the sweet demur look of Ms. Bergdahl at the president’s podium. THey got some serious look here. Maybe they’re appealing to their son here? “Now son you get yourself home right this minute, no more playing around in Afghan prison camps, you might get hurt”

    • Butt, butt, how can that be? Bergdahl’s forgot his English is five short years and after having spoke it his entire time.

      Looks like Dad Bergdahl’s was trying to tell Bowe he should have trouble understanding English.

      • Good point, WAH. It was some kind of message. “Forget” English and “I’m your father.” So is he or what? Bergdahl is said to be refusing to speak to his family. The story morphs faster than lightning. I can’t keep up with it. The initial stories, imho, are always the correct ones. After the political powers get involved and tell the media what to say: His image being rehabilitated even as his platoon mates are being Alinsky-ied as “misfits” and screw-ups.

        • Speaking of Morphing, could the real Bergdahl son be a special CIA ops dude sent into Afghanistan to do a bit of light training or better yet to plan another operation on the inside…..I mean when we ,so call ” pull out” of Afghanistan we need to get a new grip on who’s going to be looking after our assets there….like the tons of opium we need for all our CIA ops. So now we send back all the lose cannons from Guantanimo….guess they might be part of the new plans.
          Can’t help but think since the story came out and and keeps morphing, anything is possible. I mean Bergdahl seems to be the only captive of any significance in all these years….like most everyone that knows how the Afghans work…seems they like to spare folks prison and just behead em or slice em up for the barb. How is it this guy got to just hang out in prison for five years. Bergdahl has the perfect cover…one who claims to hate American ways …and he’s really never served anywhere much and only in the country a couple months before he ups and leaves. He’s either retarded or is special intelligence for something.I mean what guy/soldier in his right mind would think he was going to Afghanistan on a humanitarian venture when going off to war there. Only Bergdahl said something to that affect.
          Mr. Berdahl did say he was calvanist….I haven’t see where he was presbyterian, but don’t let any religious order fool ya…that’s just cover for touching the hearts and minds of the People..media tactic….CIA cover too. Course NSA and CIA are at odds with one another so who knows who’s getting all the dough these days to ruin our country.

          • Alex Jones floated the “Bergdahl as undercover CIA op” last week, leading me to pay more attention to those who consider Jones to be an op himself, if you get my drift. Disinformation. Where do most of the “conspiracy theories” get hatched? I’m not buying it, although it would probably suit their purposes to tell that lie to Congress in the special briefing they’re all being given today. He’s really a patriot. So in 5 years what has he accomplished? If it were so, then it would have behooved the military to play up the deserter angle INSTEAD OF to downplay it. It’s quite suspicious that he was not beheaded but was, instead, well tended and fed. Why did the Taliban NOT treat him like others or AT LEAST try to openly ransom him? Threaten his life in videos like we’ve seen too many times, saying that if we don’t pay up he dies? Play on the emotions of Americans by mistreating and threatening him on videos, like they did with Daniel Pearl (God rest his poor soul)? Despite the early indications (lies), he is not malnourished and is healthy and a good weight for his height. Why did the Taliban bide their time with him for, lo, these five entire years? Unfortunately, there are probably a lot of twenty-somethings who bought into that “humanitarian” stuff. The Pentagon and the armed forces were putting that out there. Using it as a recruiting tool. Haven’t you seen the ads at movie theaters, that ran before the previews? On TV, too? They treat the military as if it’s nothing more than an extension of the Peace Corps. It’s possible, I suppose, but I think it’s more likely that he’s some OTHER kind of operative, if he’s an operative at all.

            • I haven’t seen Alex Jones. Hard to really know anything yet,….what kind of operative is right though. If Bowe’s father hadn’t made some of the statements he did , I wouldn’t be so suspicious, but they are just plain weird. And Bergdahl’s dad saying “I’m your father Bowe” . ?????? Was he specifically at that press conference so Bowe could actually see who his father was????? Did they do some sort of switch and Mr. Berfdahl was letting this guy know who he was cause Bowe doesn’t really know and then he needs to brush up on his ENglish too/////??????!!!!! Something’s up.
              Now I heard this afternoon that now that Bowe is home he hasn’t even called his mom or dad. He doesn’t seem all that interested in contacting them. Another weird behavior.

              • Indeed they are very weird, imho. The fact that Obama and his administration were “meeting” via video conferencing with the Bergdahls from shortly after the son’s desertion/capture (which happened almost as soon as Obama took office) tells us something, at least, about why and how Barry seemed so friendly and familiar with the parents, especially the wife, with whom he held hands and who herself looked so (how else to describe it?) lovingly at Barry. Contrast that with his treatment of the parents of those lost in Benghazi. Hmm. What’s the diff, one must wonder?

                I wondered the same thing about that “I’m your father, Bowe” statement. Weird. Although IF they had already told the parents that he wouldn’t speak English, didn’t want to talk to his family (as is now reported), and maybe that he’s really in “deep”, then perhaps Senior Bergdahl was reminding his son that he IS his father and that he should let him in, so to speak. Who knows? They do look very much alike, so I do think that they are father and son.

                I read last week that the younger Bergdahl studied Russian even before he signed up, so … Reminds me too much of Ms. Dunham, who met Mr. Obama in “Russian” class.

                I read that he won’t talk to his sister, either. Heretofore, I never knew there was a sister. Or if I did read it, it didn’t register.

                MKUltra? So many others of these young men in odd situations have been suggested to be just that. Anything is possible, in this day and age, I do believe. Nothing is real.

                Like the Senator said, and as we’ve known for a long time, we can’t trust anything Barry says. I just saw him on the news announcing his new executive order where he gives students who owe school loans longer to pay (or less to pay per month). It will cost We the People big time, and Barry, with his CHARACTERISTIC SMIRK, passive-aggressively instructed the students to watch carefully the upcoming vote on student loan legislation to see how THEIR representatives vote. Yes, indeed. Buying more votes with our tax dollars. The thing is, these “students”, should they EVER get jobs in the Obamanation, will be the very people who pay the taxes that he’s now giving away. He wants to bail out the students. All of them. For many reasons: Reparations for “his” people who are “owed” free educations courtesy of the people of the USA. It helps to bankrupt the USA faster. It buys votes for November, he hopes. More distractions. More in-your-face sand-kicking for the Republicans in the House, who he KNOWS are not going to pass that bill, especially now.
