Obama’s war on America: Texas edition [Reader Post]

By 24 Comments 1,316 views

Texas has been one of the very few bright economic spots in the United States. Half of the job growth over the last two years has been in Texas. In his ongoing effort to destroy the America, Barack Obama has targeted the Texas economy for destruction.

A year ago Obama’s EPA overturned Texas’ successful oil refinery permit program. This means that oil refineries will have to file for new permits, and that, given Obama’s war on oil exploration, means death for much of the Texas oil industry.

The EPA’s decision, announced in a statement, will force some 125 refineries and petrochemical plants to invest millions of dollars to get new permits. Many of the plants may also have to invest in updates to comply with federal regulations.

The decision did not come as a surprise to Texas or the industries. EPA regional director Al Armendariz has said for months he would disapprove the permits if Texas did not comply with the Clean Air Act.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality’s chairman Bryan Shaw insisted Wednesday the state’s permitting program complies with the Clean Air Act and has improved air quality in Texas. However, in an effort to satisfy the EPA’s concerns, Shaw said the commission recently changed the rules but apparently the EPA “did not take them into consideration.”

To further throw sand into the gears of the Texas economy, Obama is moving to make Texas hostage to the Sagebrush lizard.

According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services website, “Threats to the lizard include habitat removal, fragmentation and degradation as a result of oil and gas development and shinnery oak removal.”

And the potential effect:

“If the Obama administration has its way, this scaly political pawn will land on the Endangered Species List, without sufficient supporting research to back up the move, and effectively bring new and existing oil and gas production in parts of Texas and New Mexico to a screeching halt,” said Cornyn.

Which is pretty much the unstated goal.

Now the EPA threatens the electrical supply of Texas as well.

It’s a rare moment when Republicans and unions agree on much, but as it turns out, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) union agrees: The EPA is dangerously overreaching in its CATR finding. The IBEW also fired off a letter of protest on June 16, to Gina McCarthy, assistant administrator of the EPA’s Office of Air and Regulation. The letter strongly protests the EPA’s failure to allow for any comment on the rule change, and expresses the IBEW’s concern that “including Texas in the final CATR for SO2 would result in significant increases in electricity rates, temporary or even permanent shutdown of existing coal-fired power plants, reduced capacity reserves and enormous job losses. This action would directly jeopardize the jobs of approximately 1,500 IBEW members working at six different power plants across the state of Texas.”

Obama is happy to let Texas burn to the ground- he has refused Texas Federal Aid for the wildfire-ravaged state, but Obama did send aid to New Mexico.

White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley got more than he bargained for in a meeting with American manufacturers. After a barrage of criticism of Obama policies, Daley said:

“Sometimes you can’t defend the indefensible.”

The entire Obama Presidency is indefensible.

DrJohn has been a health care professional for more than 30 years. In addition to clinical practice he has done extensive research and has published widely with over 70 original articles and abstracts in the peer-reviewed literature. DrJohn is well known in his field and has lectured on every continent except for Antarctica. He has been married to the same wonderful lady for over 30 years and has three kids- two sons, both of whom are attorneys and one daughter on her way into the field of education. DrJohn was brought up with the concept that one can do well if one is prepared to work hard but nothing in life is guaranteed. Except for liberals being foolish.

    As a Texan, I would like to take this moment to say to Bari Owebammer F*&@ YOU! If I was to see the man in person I would likely bitchslap him back to Kenya, where he belongs.
    He may have been bornin Hawaii, but he will always be an asshaole to me.
    Now you know why Rick Perry talked of secession- and we are the only country(not yet) State that could do this legally- the codicil is in the agreement to enter into the United States, signed in 1845.
    Not only did this poor excuse of a man not help Texas, but when he was flying to El Paso to give a mouth massauge to the Latino liberals, as he was flying over the flooded Mississippi, and cities like Memphis, he didn’t even look- at least Dubya looked at the devastation Katrina wrought.
    What a piss-poor excuse of a man Obama is- All hat and no cattle.

    As a Texan I wish we would use our right to succeed from the Union! I am seeing more and more of those bumper stickers as Obis rule drags on. We could then come back in when he was gone. Or hell maybe even stay out and invade Mexico and take more land from them, push the border back to past mexico City. The possibilities are unlimited! Just joking for all the hardcore unionists out there!

    What have we done?
    We have tried to feed the world, when we have so many hungry at home.

    We have tried to export our values, when we are throwing them away at home.

    We elect leaders in good faith to serve We The People, only to find they serve only themselves.

    Almost fifty percent of Americans believe they have the right to that which others have earned, and keep voting for the same liars who promise them a life of ease with no effort on their part. They will continue to vote for the same crooks because as long as an occasional crumb falls from the table, the dog will continue to beg and lick the master’s hand.

    There are those who believe God does not exist, and moral values are old fashioned, that anything goes as long as it is between two consenting adults, and does not harm anyone else.

    There is only one place where God is not present, and that is Hell which He created as the domain of Satan for the eternal place of damnation for the wicked. So for those who wish to live in a world with no God, I suggest they go to Hell, and may God speed their journey.

    According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services website, “Threats to the lizard include habitat removal, fragmentation and degradation as a result of oil and gas development and shinnery oak removal.”

    Of course, it’s not like this particular lizard isn’t found in many other areas of the country, ranging as far north as Washington state and as far east as Nebraska, and everywhere in-between all the way to California.

    Of course environmentalists are probably cheering the feds on, even though most don’t have the slightest clue about this little lizard. They only care that the possibility of shutting down more domestic oil production is near.

    Oh I don’t think Texas will leave the Union, however in defense of the Constitution we just might join up with some other Red States and kick some Blue States out of it if their elected pimps keep trying to steal money from us and cripple our economy. If they try to resist with force we’ll have more money,arms, and military experience than they do

  9. 12


    The TEXAS governor and legislature ought to tell the feds to go to Hell and ignore their requirements. What are they going to do, send in the troops? Threaten boycotts – not give federal dollars to Texas?

    And while they are at it, the rest of the Gulf states ought do the same and go drill and pump oil from the Gulf.

    Obama is warring on Texas on many fronts……

    ATF Agent John Dodson, testifying in front of Congressman Issa’s Committee on Oversight and Government Reform committee, said that in his entire law enforcement career, he had “never been involved in or even heard of an operation in which law enforcement officers let guns walk.” He continued: “I cannot begin to think of how the risk of letting guns fall into the hands of known criminals could possibly advance any legitimate law enforcement interest.

    The obvious answer is that Gunwalker’s objective was never intended to be a “legitimate law enforcement interest.”

    Instead, it appears that ATF Acting Director Ken Melson and Department of Justice senior executives specifically created an operation that was designed from the outset to arm Mexican narco-terrorists and increase violence substantially along both sides of the Southwest border.

    Eric Holder’s Department of Justice needs to stop stonewalling Issa’s committee and start providing clear–among other things, unredacted–answers as to who devised Fast and Furious, and why.

    More here:

    Letting Melson fall on his sword will not be adequate.

    It is a PDF bees.
    It opened right up for me.
    I don’t understand why people have so much trouble with PDFs.
    If you have an Adobe or a Java icon it should open.
    Do you have issues with other PDF’s?

  13. 17


    NO 3RD TIME,
    AND i never used adobe or java, would not know what to do there,

    Another salvo fired off at D.C. by the State of Texas today. Perry has given new life to the “”Stop the TSA Groping” bill.

    BTW, the Sagebrush lizard has a natural enemy. It’s called the roadrunner who eats them with great frequency. Perhaps Eric Holder can sue the roadrunner? At least that would provide comic relief and not dead Border Patrol agents.

  15. 20


    retire05, there might be a greater number of roadrunner this year so they would eat more of it,
    woops, how come they can’t figure that up
    geez they will want to shoot them now
    or find a beast to eat the roadrunner,
    geez watch what you eat in restaurants around there,
    how about a rroadrunner pizza,
