Obama Uses EPA to Seize Control of Energy Sector

Dems were able to ram Cap & Tax through the House, but this debacle will never make it through the Senate, now that such a large number of people are aware that the government and media have been lying, and that global warming — or "climate change" as the lack of warming has forced moonbats to call it — has no validity whatsoever. But fortunately for advocates of totalitarian collectivism, Comrade Obama still has an ace up his sleeve: control of the faceless, unaccountable, and irredeemably leftist bureaucracy. Here's how it will be used for the next 2 years:
US President Barack Obama's administration said Thursday it will regulate greenhouse gas emissions from power plants, after legislation on climate change died in Congress.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) said it would regulate fossil fuel power plants and petroleum refineries — which together emit nearly 40 percent of US greenhouse gases — starting in 2012.
"We are following through on our commitment to proceed in a measured and careful way to reduce greenhouse gas pollution that threatens the health and welfare of Americans and contributes to climate change," EPA chief Lisa Jackson said in a statement.
Using a debunked hoax as justification for yet another outrageous power grab proves that the 2010 elections did not deflate the Moonbat Messiah's audacity, and that his lust for control is anything but measured and careful. Takeover of the energy sector will fit nicely with the federal government's newly acquired control of healthcare and the food supply. When all this power has been consolidated by the lumbering bureaucracy, calling America a free country will become an insult to the concept of freedom.
At least the Manchurian Moonbat is living up to one of his campaign promises. Remember when he promised to make energy prices "skyrocket"?
He actually said this before the election. Horrifyingly, millions of people were sufficiently deranged by moonbattery to vote for him anyway.
