President Barack Obama is becoming dangerously disconnected from reality, completely ignoring the resounding message sent to him by the American electorate on election day.
Despite a voter repudiation of his radical progressive agenda, Obama is vowing to push ahead with energy sector killing and private property violating climate change regulations.
Obama’s administration isn’t being shy about what they are doing either, taunting the new GOP leadership by calling them powerless to stop their global warming rules, according to the Washington Times.
A Presidential task force unveiled a report containing numerous recommendations for “climate preparedness and resilience” projects that are estimated to cost the government over $100 billion.
Even though the Supreme Court has already struck down some of the new overreaching EPA regulations, and the administration is currently being sued over other global warming rules, Obama’s White House feels that Republicans won’t be able to do much to stop them from pushing through new regulations aimed at climate change.
“I believe the president will complete actions. It is a top priority of his and I don’t believe they can stop us,” White House counselor John Podesta told reporters on a conference call Monday. “Not withstanding Sen. McConnell making this a top priority to leave the status quo, to leave the air dirtier.”
The task force recommendations are in addition to a one-sided deal with China that Obama agreed to, which cuts U.S. greenhouse gas emissions by an additional 26%, while China has merely promised to look at capping their emissions no later than 2030.
On top of that, Obama is also demanding a $3 billion “global climate fund”, which will redistribute American taxpayer dollars to developing nations to help them build more infrastructure.
Mitch McConnell, for his part, has vowed to make fighting Obama’s “global warming” agenda a top priority of the new Republican-led Congress, telling a crowd in Kentucky that, “They’ve been on a rampage all across the country. And I think coal is the most conspicuous example, but it’s happening in a lot of other areas and I think you’re going to see bipartisan support for trying to rein them in.”
The White House certainly appears to feel cocky about their climate regulations, but it isn’t because they are saving the environment or anything noble like that. These rules and regulations serve little purpose other than to create further drag on our economy, particularly the energy sector.
Global warming is based off of unsettled “pseudo-science,” despite the liberals screaming that the “debate is over.” Any move by the administration aimed towards dealing with global climate change is just a socialistic redistributive move designed to undercut America on the international stage.
