Don’t Let The Title Fool You: $700,000 Taxpayer Funded Climate Change Musical Closes

crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist Oath Keeper and Patriot.

One must wonder how such nonsense gets funded by the Republican led House of Representative who hold the purse strings.

20130401095806

A safe bet would be it was tacked on as a rider to a bill that nobody bothered to read on either side of the aisle.

This congress, justly deserves the lowest ratings in recent history, the U.S. Senate being a major part of the problem

The-Great-Immensity-Climate-Change-BeFunky_Tilt-Shift_2-show-closed

Earlier this year I wrote a post about the federal government spending $700,000 of taxpayer money on a musical about climate change entitled “The Great Immensity.”Well the show went on and as expected, it was a dismal failure so much so that the curtain on the disaster is being pulled ahead of time.

Washington Free Beacon

The Great Immensity, a musical described as ‘painfully long‘ and ‘awkward,’ was made possible by a $697,177 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

‘The play, which featured songs and video exploring Americans’ relationships to the environment, opened in New York in April with a three-week run before going on a national tour that was supposed to attract 75,000 patrons,’ FoxNews.com reported. ‘But it stalled after a single production in Kansas City, falling short of the lofty goals outlined in a grant proposal….’

For starters, what were they thinking to use taxpayer dollars on such a failure? Oh, my bad, throwing taxpayer money at promised failures is business as usual for the Obama administration.

Apparently not satisfied with the results of their gun show down at Cliven Bundy’s Ranch. (Link to his actual Website)

More unelected bureaucrats from the Department of the Interior are using their fascist ways to raise hell with states all over the United States.

They did a hell of a job with the buffalo didn’t they?

Want to get the U.S. independent from middle eastern sources of oil?  Bring on Governor Palin who did a great job with Exxon while in Alaska.

She would make an excellent Secretary of the Department of the Interior.

“You betcha, drill baby drill”

Very simply she told them start drilling or lose your leases.  But of course they drilled.

Do we really need this department which is responsible for handling oil leases when the entire concept of drilling for oil or fracking for natural is anathema to their very being?

When the Department of Justice shut out New Mexico Congressman Steve Pearce from a ranchers-v-feds mediation last week, it was a startling snub to both state interests and congressional oversight.

The executive branch does not get to use the chief law enforcement office to impose controversial endangered species rules on locals while excluding the very congressional authority that is charged with overseeing and fixing oppressive regulations.

Why electric cars suck in cold weather?

Comments by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

When the federal government went to CAFE fuel standards the great automotive minds in the industry turned to hybrid vehicles and totally electric vehicles.

Toyota Hybrid Prius  50 mpg in normal weather.

thebrandnewaThe all-electric Ford Focus deficient and does not meet fuel standards in cold weather.

Solyndra-bankruptcy

This was not a failed boondoggle like Solyndra, where the U.S. taxpayer was left to pick up the tab on each of the government’s failed green adventure, be it solar panels, wind generation, if the government is in it, the likelihood is that it will fail.

No, this was the private sector trying to play the EPA game only to find they have created another flawed product to add to its previous failures.

According to the Southern California Edison Company the cost of the electricity to fully charge a battery per k/w hour can be significant.

How Long Does it Take To Charge an Electric CarThe correct answer is it depends.  It depends on the car the battery but all things considered they buyer is looking at an overnight charge.

Just think many of these folks are waiting around for Global Warming to kick in.

They will be waiting for a very long time.

In hindsight, it’s not surprising the Mitsubishi MiEV EV I drove barely made it to 50 miles rather than its rated 62 miles (100 km). It was a dark and chilly if not stormy early December night and that killed the range.
When you drive an EV, “your mileage may vary” includes cold weather as well as hard acceleration and late braking. As temperatures dip below freezing, you could lose 25% of your electric vehicle’s precious range.
Batteries are less efficient in cold weather, they don’t regenerate as well, and electric heating for the cabin, seats, and windows drains your range, too.

The same thing happened when I drove a Tesla Model S. With the 85 kWh battery, the Tesla is good for around 250 miles.

During the afternoon with temperatures above freezing, the discharge rate indicated I wasn’t far off from that kind of efficiency. Driving at night as temperatures fell into the 20s (0C to -5C), I found the range fell noticeably faster than the distance gauge suggested at the start of the trip.

None of this should be surprising. The 12-volt batteries on mainstream cars are prone to failure in the first cold weeks of winter. A battery is a chemical reaction that gives off electrons, or power.

EPA: Yeah, Turns Out Carbon Emissions Reduction Has Little Impact On Climate Change

crew-223Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist,Oath Keeper and Patriot. Is there anything Obama and his team of useful idiots can get right?

Size of the military, wrong, dealing with Putin on the Ukraine, wrong, dealing with Iran on their nuclear facilities, wrong, The Arab Spring, wrong and now the EPA admits that Carbon has nothing to do with rising temperatures.

One thing certain, listen to and watch the lyrics to Paul McCartney’s “Fool on the Hill. 

EPA Abuse

Barack-Obama-6-SC

When Obama announced new fuel standards for trucks last week, he said the initiative would cut the harmful carbon pollution responsible for climate change.

al-gore-frozen2BTW…..Where are the temperatures rising? 

(Based upon no prospective science, just political science)

But even the government says such action won’t put a dent in global warming.

climate+change+gore+exposed

The EPA’s so-called “temperature change calculator,” which shows how reducing carbon emissions would affect climate change, indicates that a doubling of fuel economy in trucks by 2018 would have virtually no impact on rising temperatures.

Analysts at the Cato Institute’s Center for the Study of Science said the government calculator shows that even reducing total U.S. carbon emissions to zero this year would prevent global temperatures from rising by only 0.2 degrees by the year 2100.

“Any policy that the U.S. does that purports to be climatically important, in fact is not,” said Patrick Michaels, director of the center.

The EPA says its vehicle greenhouse gas rules already in place will save consumers $1.7 trillion at the pump by 2025, and will eliminate six billion metric tons of carbon pollution.

When Mr. Obama visited a trucking distribution center in Upper Marlboro, Md., last week, he called the administration’s new proposed rules on fuel efficiency a “win-win-win” situation.

“I’ve Got A Pen And I’ve Got A Phone” : The Misbegotten Delusions Of A Would Be Dictator

crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

When Obama said recently,  “‘I’ve Got A Pen And I’ve Got A Phone,”  regarding executive actions, we should take heart.

67525_644034735663798_356923109_n

That’s all that is needed to take an order for a pizza, maybe he will personally deliver it.

Yep, he uses agencies like the EPA as well as our federal court system to do his bidding.

In a land grab orchestrated by the EPA,  the town of Riverton, Wyoming was taken over by an Indian tribe without the approval of Congress.

A King and his Jester – “There can be no liberty where the legislative and executive powers are united in the same person, or body of magistrates.” ~ 18th-century political philosopher Montesquieu.

Obama is no fool, he’s a despot, thriving on tyrannical rule and a dictator in the making, unless We the People stop him and his movement cold in the upcoming elections of 2014 and 2016.

EPA preparing to unleash a deluge of new regulations

This is exactly what happens when a bunch of unelected environmental zealots with no science to back their job crushing regulation are used by an administration gone wild to push its Marxist agenda

Happy holidays from the Obama administration. Federal agencies are currently working on rolling out hundreds of environmental regulations, including major regulations that would limit emissions from power plants and expand the agency’s authority to bodies of water on private property.

On Tuesday, the White House released its regulatory agenda for the fall of 2013. It lists hundreds of pending energy and environmental regulations being crafting by executive branch agencies, including 134 regulations from the Environmental Protection Agency alone.

The EPA is currently crafting 134 major and minor regulations, according to the White House’s regulatory agenda. Seventy-six of the EPA’s pending regulations originate from the agency’s air and radiation office, including carbon-dioxide-emission limits on power plants.

Carbon-dioxide limits are a key part of President Barack Obama’s climate agenda. The EPA is set to set emissions limits that would effectively ban the construction of new coal-fired power plants unless they use carbon capture and sequestration technology. Next year, the agency will move to limit emissions from existing power plants — which could put more older coal plants out of commission.

EPA Shutting Down Last-standing U.S. Primary Lead Smelter

crew-2231

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Fortunately they are behind on this one as there are alternatives already in place for lead.

What better way to start the day than an incoming blast from our very own G.G.?

As unelected environmental zealots working for the EPA come up with new ways to push their agenda pm the U.S. economy congress stands idly by.

If they were really interested in lead, why not send them to China do get a fix on the lead laden products China ships to our shores?

These pea-brained, warped-minded, moon bat low hanging fruit a/h’s in U.S. government is using every power available to them to reduce this nation to primal state! 

Their implementation of Agenda 21 is being foisted on our nation and having devastating effects on our ability to use our own natural resources, affecting jobs and the economy.  That is the main purpose it seems of the EPA………tool for the globalists to further destroy economy and ability to self sustain, US population.

EPA needs a good defunding…………..period. 

The Arizona Daily Independent

The last standing primary lead smelter (shown) in the United States will be closing in December — thanks to the federal Environmental Protection Agency’s continuing war on American industry.

While environmental militants may cheer the demise of the Doe Run Company smelter in Herculaneum, Missouri, as an ecological “victory,” the plant’s closure will have little-to-no positive environmental impact, while causing significant economic harm.

The potential implications for individual liberty and national security could prove to be even more significant. Meanwhile, Congress continues to permit the EPA to wreak havoc on the American economy, with draconian regulations that have no basis in science and are causing incalculable harm. EPA regulations, for example, are closing hundreds of coal-fired electrical plants and are now targeting natural gas, which has been one of the few bright spots in our national economy, producing (together with unconventional oil production) 1.7 million jobs.

Once Doe Run’s Herculaneum smelter closes there will be no facility left in the United States to process lead ore. A dozen or so secondary smelters will remain to process recycled batteries and other products containing lead, but there is no reason to believe that the EPA’s ever-tightening noose will not eventually order them closed as well.

The Herculaneum smelter, which has operated in the same location since 1892, began its shutdown in 2010, after the company concluded an agreement with the EPA.

Tammy Stankey, a public affairs spokesperson at the Doe Run Company, told The New American that the Herculanaum smelter, which once employed over 300, will continue to employ around 75 workers for some time in non-lead-smelting jobs.

GOP accuses EPA of ‘unprecedented’ power grab with proposed water rule

crew-2231

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Seriously can you think of a bigger job killing agency with unelected over paid workers than the EPA?

epa-finger-logo

It’s time We the People force many government agencies

The EPA’s reach is far more devastating than just water, it impacts, coal production, U.S. oil production, driving up the cost of everything we purchase as members of congress sit idly by doing little or nothing.

It’s time this agency be privatized or abolished completely. 

MACT-Job-Losses

A gross underestimate.

Since it was unlikely I could come up with anything better than G.G.’s comments read please read them and enjoy.

This is all part of Agenda 21.

The EPA isn’t even a Constitutional agency.

It’s just one more alphabet soup government labeled acronym needing to be defunded and start over with REAL AMERICANS running it; not Commie liberals, or ENVIRO-WHACKOS in charge and hired to carry out the regulatory bureaucratic nightmare agenda upon US citizens.

Two Republican lawmakers on the House Science Committee are accusing the Environmental Protection Agency of pushing through a rule that could potentially expand the agency’s regulatory authority over streams, wetlands and other bodies under the Clean Water Act.

Reps. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, and Chris Stewart, R-Utah, on Friday sent a letter to EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy expressing concern over the proposed draft rule, which they say would give the agency “unprecedented control over private property across the nation.”

Senate demands answers on EPA’s armed raid of Alaskan gold mine

The wheels of the government move ever so slowly unless they are figuring out new ways to tax We The People or use unelected agencies to force their will upon us.

That’s what happens in a lawless government that Obama is currently running.

Republican senators are demanding answers from the Environmental Protection Agency after agency officials participated in an armed raid of gold mines near Chicken, Alaska.

According to reports, in late August agents of the Alaska Environmental Crimes Task Force swarmed the mine in groups of four to eight and even went so far as to wear body armor and carry guns while investigating a supposed violation of Section 404 of the Clean Water Act. No arrests were made in the raid and no citations were issued.

“Imagine coming up to your diggings, only to see agents swarming over it like ants, wearing full body armor, with jackets that say POLICE emblazoned on them, and all packing side arms,” gold miner C.R. “Dick” Hammond told the Alaska Dispatch.
