EPA Official’s ‘Philosophy’ On Oil Companies: ‘Crucify Them’ – Just As Romans Crucified Conquered Citizens

Let us not forget that the environmental movement had its genesis in the Communist Party.   It should come as no surprise that “Earth Day,” on April 22nd of each year is the birthday of Vladimir Lenin, the Soviet Union’s first dictator.
Unfortunately the Obama agenda includes these sort misguided beings that will continue to attempt to “crucify” business’ until the go out of business adding more men and women to the unemployment rolls.

Isn’t it time companies so afflicted fight back in the courts and challenge the administration and the EPA to prove scientifically that there is a connection between CO2 produced by fossil fuel.  When no connection can be proved then fine companies that make money off the big carbon swindles of Cap and Trade?   Perhaps they choose to let the clock run out on this administration as it surely will in November.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.

Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) took to the Senate floor today to draw attention to a video of a top EPA official saying the EPA’s “philosophy” is to “crucify” and “make examples” of oil and gas companies – just as the Romans crucified random citizens in areas they conquered to ensure obedience.

Inhofe quoted a little-watched video from 2010 of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) official, Region VI Administrator Al Armendariz, admitting that EPA’s “general philosophy” is to “crucify” and “make examples” of oil and gas companies.

In the video, Administrator Armendariz says:

“I was in a meeting once and I gave an analogy to my staff about my philosophy of enforcement, and I think it was probably a little crude and maybe not appropriate for the meeting, but I’ll go ahead and tell you what I said:

“It was kind of like how the Romans used to, you know, conquer villages in the Mediterranean.  They’d go in to a little Turkish town somewhere, they’d find the first five guys they saw and they’d crucify them.

“Then, you know, that town was really easy to manage for the next few years.”

“It’s a deterrent factor,” Armendariz said, explaining that the EPA is following the Romans’ philosophy for subjugating conquered villages.

Soon after Armendariz touted the EPA’s “philosophy,” the EPA began smear campaigns against natural gas producers, Inhofe’s office noted in advance of today’s Senate speech:

“Not long after Administrator Armendariz made these comments in 2010, EPA targeted US natural gas producers in Pennsylvania, Texas and Wyoming.

(More Below)

“In all three of these cases, EPA initially made headline-grabbing statements either insinuating or proclaiming outright that the use of hydraulic fracturing by American energy producers was the cause of water contamination, but in each case their comments were premature at best – and despite their most valiant efforts, they have been unable to find any sound scientific evidence to make this link.”

In his Senate speech, Sen. Inhofe said the video provides Americans with “a glimpse of the Obama administration’s true agenda.”

That agenda, Inhofe said, is to “incite fear” in the public with unsubstantiated claims and “intimidate” oil and gas companies with threats of unjustified fines and penalties – then, quietly backtrack once the public’s perception has been firmly jaded against oil and natural gas.

    Maybe Obama will carry over his policy of Roman decimation and include his politically appointed cabinet.and czars. They could all draw straws and one in ten could gleefully be thrown under or out of the Pimp Mobile by the lucky nine. If they’d employ this tactic daily or weekly, soon all of our issues might be addressed.
