Coal Miner Gives Heartfelt Testimony Regarding Obama’s EPA Policies

Obama promised that he would put coal fired power plants out of business.  Obama promised that his policies would make make electric bills “skyrocket.”  As we face potential energy shortages and even possible brownouts/blackouts due to Obama’s policies, coal miners are looking forward to a bleak future as well.  Here is video of a miner making a rather humble and heartfelt comment a a public hearing.   When Obama kills the industry that uses much of the coal mined, it puts the coal miners in a precarious position. But, of course, the Obama administration doesn’t care a bit about the […]

Obama Steps Up Deportations – of Land Rovers…

Finally, an illegal alien Obama’s DHS will seize and deport – a Land Rover Defender They can’t stop the flood of illegal aliens waltzing in from Mexico. And they’ve never caught a terrorist in an airport. But, fear not, because Obama’s crack DHS storm troopers are locked and loaded, mobilizing on a moment’s notice to pounce on a threat more sinister than you could ever imagine — Old Land Rovers. When Jennifer Brinkley saw a line of law enforcement vehicles coming up her driveway last Tuesday she didn’t know what to think. “I haven’t done anything wrong.” The Homeland Security […]

Dear ________________: (A Letter From the EPA)

As is often the case here at the worldwide headquarters of Manhattan Infidel, disturbing stuff gets deposited on my desk (and not just last night’s 3 am taco.  With bacon.)  In this case it is a letter that the Environmental Protection Agency will be sending out to all Americans. Dear _________: It has come to the attention of the EPA that it occasionally rains on your property.  It has also come to our attention that when it does rain puddles are left on your lawn. These puddles then disappear over time.  We have photographic evidence of this. Why is this? Why has this […]

Mark Levin’s Legal Foundation Takes on the EPA

Hat/Tip to Susan Jones of CNSNews.com. Lawsuit Seeks Damages From EPA, ‘A Toxic Waste Dump of Lawlessness’ If I were the EPA, I’d be worried. Mark Levin is an amazing intellect and his knowledge of our Constitution is almost beyond compare. A conservative legal group is asking a federal judge to punish the Environmental Protection Agency for destroying or failing to preserve emails and text messages requested in August 2012 under the Freedom of Information Act. The Landmark Legal Foundation believes the requested — but never delivered — messages to outside groups would have revealed EPA attempts to influence the […]

Veterans Affairs – Latest Example Of Government Gone Big And Bad

If you have read many of my posts, you will know I am not a fan of big government. I have railed against it on more than a few occasions and I firmly believe the quote from Thomas Jefferson in the above picture is true. Most bad government comes from having too much government. For the most part, it does not work the way its champions claim it will. Time after time, we have seen the examples. Government agencies growing too big for the pants they are trying to wear. The EPA and the IRS both think they are God […]

Global Warming ‘Fabricated’ by NASA and NOAA

Hat/Tip to Breitbart-London. In recent articles here at CH2.0 we’ve covered the scam that is Global Climate Warming Change. We told you how one of NASA’s own calls it the “Biggest Fraud in the Field of Science,” and how, despite temperatures being cooler for the last decade plus, the Al Gore army are still saying that Global Warming CAUSES more ice… Well, it would seem that NASA and NOAA have egg on their respective faces over their hysterical claims of climate doom. Scientists at two of the world’s leading climate centres – NASA and NOAA – have been caught out […]

Farm Family Make Fun of Obama’s EPA in Must See Video Parody

Hat/Tip to The Blaze and Fox News Insider. Since Obama hasn’t been able to get his aggressive, economy draining agenda through Congress (even though the Democrats control the Senate), he’s using his pen and his phone to tell the EPA to implement his wishes through regulations. But some farmers in Missouri are fighting back through the use of parody to point out the absurdity of what the EPA intends to do. Farmers are hitting back against a rule proposed by the Environmental Protection Agency in what might be considered an unexpected way: with song. In a parody song set to […]

Enviro-Statists Pull Wool over Supremes’ Eyes – Again

Hat/Tip to The Washington Times. The Flat Earth, No Growth Marxists who keep trying to push Global Climate Warming Change (or whatever they’re calling it this week) on us have done what scores of lefties before them have done – they’ve used the courts to get what they could not obtain legislatively. A fractured Supreme Court on Monday largely upheld the Environmental Protection Agency’s radical rule designed to shut down the power plants that produce the most affordable electricity. The justices continue to accept the EPA’s labeling of carbon dioxide as a “pollutant.” This harmless gas, the agency insists, is […]

EPA Chief Promises To Go After Republicans Who Question Agency Science

  During her Senate confirmation hearings, then nominee for head of the Environmental Protection Agency, Gina McCarthy sang a song of cooperation and transparency that evidently fooled enough Republicans, and she ended up being confirmed. Senator David Vitter (R-LA): On one of his first days in office, the President signed a memorandum entitled, “Transparency and Open Government” in which he committed to create “an unprecedented level” of openess and transparency. The President correctly stated “transparency promotes accountability.” Given the President’s commitment, will you promise today to release to the American public all of the underlying reserch data supporting the PM […]

Will Obama’s ‘War on Coal’ Lead to Brownouts?

We have known for a while that Obama has a “war on coal.”  And, as the EPA forces many coal fired power plants to close down, we have to look at the possibility that we may face brownouts.   Pirate’s Cove has more… Anyone surprised? (Fox News) Facing the Obama administration’s so-called “war on coal,” some utility officials are warning that fewer coal-fired power plants could leave the U.S. power system vulnerable to blackouts in the near future. The officials warn that intense summer heat or extreme winter cold could soon be too much for the system to handle. “I worry […]

‘Who Gets the Water?’ Government Destroys Farmers

I what seems to be the government’s war on all things productive, farmers are also a target.  800,000 square miles are farmland have been deprived of water by government edict, causing farmers to lose everything.  Here is some video… The farmers suffer, the people suffer, the workers suffer, and the government laughs. Welcome to the USSA. H/T:  The Minority Report

EPA Conducted Unethical Human Experiments: Pretends to Protect Citizens by Killing Them?

If you listen to liberals, the EPA has saved humanity be decreasing pollution. And, in most noble fashion, always putting people first.  Unless it’s using humans for dangerous and unethical research, that is.  Doug Ross has more… Now why would the EPA perform such dangerous and unconscionable experiments on humans, especially on the elderly and infirm? Why, they’re doing it for the children, of course: These experiments exposed people, including those with asthma and heart problems, to dangerously high levels of toxic pollutants, including diesel fumes, reads a EPA inspector general report obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. The […]

EPA Declares War on Warmth: New, Meaningless Restrictions on Wood Stoves

I wonder if some industry group is behind the EPA effort to make it harder to use wood stoves for heat… The EPA says that the new woodstove regulations are necessary to reduce the amount of fine particulate air pollution, known as PM 2.5, produced by the stoves. The regulations will apply to woodstoves, wood-pellet stoves, forced-air wood furnaces, wood boilers, fireplace inserts and masonry heaters built in 2015 or later. Via The Associated Press: Fine particulate pollution is made up of solid particles and liquid droplets that measure 2.5 micrometers in diameter or less. The EPA currently certifies non-catalytic […]

Caveman Discovers Fire; Caveman Government Seeks to Ban It

Fire good! Regulation bad! A new element  has been discovered that promises to dramatically improve the way of life of the average caveman. “I call it ‘fire’ “ declared the beaming discoverer. Fire will warm us in winter.  It will make our food easier to eat preserving our teeth. I don’t have to tell you that cavemen dentist are few and far between.  Fire can be used as a weapon.  It can be used in our cavemen cultic ceremonies. Fire, if I dare say it, has the ability to fundamentally transform our way of life.  With fire we can dream […]

My Exclusive Interview with Kathleen Sebelius

The site is working juuuuuuuuussssssst fine. With the December 1st deadline now past for the Healthcare.Gov website problems to be fixed I, like most Americans, wonder if the site has indeed been fixed and what the process was. With this in mind I was lucky enough to snag an interview with the HHS Secretary herself, Kathleen Sebelius. MI: Good afternoon Ms. Sebelius.  Thank you for meeting with me. KB: It’s not my fault! MI: What? KB: Sorry.  I mean, I am proud to announce that we have made the December 1st deadline and the Healthcare.Gov website is up and running!  All glitches have been […]

Is Obama Going to End Coal?

Is Obama going to end the use of coal?  It’s very possible, if you take a look at the following, from the Independent Sentinel… Obama is at war with fossil fuels and his first key battle is against coal, which provides 45% of the electricity in the United States. Obama has succeeded at making it impossible to build new coal plants and he is about to close existing plants. Last year the EPA passed stringent carbon emissions standards on coal plants that prevented the building of any new coal-fired facilities in the United States. Some of the worst rules, delayed until […]

EPA Gives Out Farmer’s Private Information to Left Wing Environmental Groups?

I don’t even know why I ended the title with a question mark.  The EPA did take the private information of small farmers, and gave it to left wing environmental groups.  Moe Lane has more… Executive summary (H/T: AoSHQ): the EPA just admitted that, yeah, it gave out a bunch of personal information about farmers and ranchers – including phone numbers, email addresses, regular addresses, and whatnot – to various environmental groups.  The EPA also is kind of admitting that, yeah, maybe it shouldn’t have given out that information, which is why they’ve asked those groups to give that information […]

The If You Let The EPA In Your House…

What does a politically aware person think when he or she hears that the EPA is interested on their home’s “safety?”  Probably the following… 1.  Power grab. 2.  Regulations. 3.  Resulting Wallet Grab. I could probably go on for a bit, but New Zeal has a lot more… On February 4, 2013, the Obama government issued a press release on how it plans to gain access into your home. What follows is an edited snapshot of the government’s planned intrusions onto and into your private property: FEDERAL AGENCIES WORKING TO MAKE HOMES HEALTHIER Improving housing quality can dramatically affect the […]

Willie Wonka Shuts Down his Chocolate Factory

Famed billionaire industrialist Willie Wonka has shut down his chocolate factory, throwing hundreds of Oompa-Loompas out of work and denying children throughout the world his candy bars. “I didn’t have much of a choice” said Wonka. The EPA was coming after me. The government raised my taxes because they wanted me to pay my “fair share” whatever the hell that means.  With the health reform law taking effect I had to pay a fine if I didn’t give the Oompa-Loompas birth control.  I tell you it’s just a mess.  And I’m not the only one who feels that way.  I’ve […]

Obama Administration Avoids Transparency by Using Secret Email Accounts?

Apparently, the most transparent administration ever is using secret email accounts to avoid transparency.  Just like a mobbed up business would keep two sets of books-one official one, and one real one, the government seems to be using secret email addresses.  After all if someone did a Freedom of Information Act request, or Congress sent subpena, the recipient would only receive a sanitized version of what was really going on.  Conservative Daily News has the information… Yesterday, the House of Representatives Science, Space and Technology Committee released a statement in which they announced their investigation into EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson’s use of an […]
