This Administration has never made secrete its wish to put coal, oil and natural gas out of business. Energy drives our economy and that energy comes from those fossil fuels. And if the Administration is successful, the US will become a second-class nation with an impoverished citizenry.
They cannot achieve their wish legislatively, so they have employed Executive branch regulators to accomplish their goals. The EPA is not the only part of the Administration employing “government by regulation not legislation”, but they are the major force. Now we have a new insight on how the EPA goes about coercing business and local governments into doing their bidding. The Foundry site posted these comments:
A video surfaced on Wednesday showing a regional administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency comparing his agency’s philosophy with respect to regulation of oil and gas companies to brutal tactics employed by the ancient Roman army to intimidate its foes into submission.
EPA’s “philosophy of enforcement,” said EPA’s Region VI Administrator Al Armendariz, is “kind of like how the Romans used to conquer little villages in the Mediterranean: they’d go into little Turkish towns somewhere, they’d find the first five guys they’d run into, and they’d crucify them.”
“That town was really easy to manage for the next few years,” Armendariz added.

This destruction of our economy will not stop unless we can vote Obama out of office this coming November.
