ReclaimAmerica -Obama to Crush Economy with Massive CO2 Taxes as Early as Next Week

Greetings:

A high priority in my life is to help "restore to the states and the people the prerogatives and freedoms guaranteed the under the Constitution;" a pledge made by thirty governors and the goal of the CNC/1776 team. To allow me to focus on our goal  I'm going to eliminate many of the names in my address book. If you share our goal and wish to network with others to pursue it, please register with the team at http://www.tyranttamer.com/signup.php.  Following is my most recent release through the communications system.

********************************************************************** 

Hi:

CNC Chairman Mecham often said: "America's enemies are winning for lack of an organized resistance." Each passing day seems to bring forth one more reason for Americans to unite on  meaningful actions of common interest designed to gain control of the Federal government via a system allowing them to retain their freedom to pursue special interests.  The paper at http://www.thecnc.org/Documents/LawfulGov.htm summarizes my thoughts on developing an "organized resistance."

Though I hope it's not true, I received the following email that again emphasizes the need for unity of action. The best way I know of for realizing such unity is through the communications system on the www.tyranttamer.com web site which should be of help in creating the team described at www.thecnc.org/Documents/1776.htm. Please urge your contacts to help create this needed team.

Regards,

Walter Myers

Obama to Crush Economy with Massive CO2 Taxes as Early as Next Week
 
Abandoning all loyalty to the democratic processes this nation holds dear, President Obama has made the decision that getting energy tax legislation through Congress with the approval of the American people is just too much of a pain to bother with. Instead he will have the EPA declare as early as next week that CO2 is a dangerous global warming gas and will start regulating its emissions immediately.
 
Put simply, it means $8 for a gallon of gas and 2-3 times higher electricity bills. It also means the loss of millions more sorely needed jobs as businesses are hit with higher operating costs and the transfer of whatever remains of our manufacturing sector to China where energy is cheaper and they aren’t so concerned about CO2.

In the first week alone, American businesses estimated that ObamaCare will cost them $14 billion. By most estimates this latest Obama nightmare will be far more expensive and may literally destroy the economy in less than 20 years.

ALG Praises Sen. Rockefeller's Bill to Enact Two-Year Moratorium on EPA Carbon Caps

"The economy, every facet of which runs on energy, mustn't be in the hands of the radical EPA bureaucracy."—ALG President Bill Wilson.

March 5th, 2010, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today praised Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) for introducing legislation that would place a two-year moratorium on any decision by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to cap by regulation carbon emissions.

"Senator Jay Rockefeller has watched as the EPA is moving at lightning speed to issue regulation by fiat to cap carbon emissions, a cap that will devastate the U.S. economy, and is acting quickly to put the brakes on," said Wilson.

"Given a choice between representing his constituents, many of whom work in the coal industry, and the radical bureaucracy of the EPA, who cater to a cult of 'man-made' global warming, Senator Rockefeller has chosen his constituents and the American people at large who oppose carbon caps," Wilson added.

Wilson called for bipartisan support for Rockefeller's bill, potentially merging it with Senator Lisa Murkowski's (R-AK) legislation that would overturn the EPA's finding that greenhouse gases pose a danger to public health and welfare. 

According to the Washington Post, Democratic Senators Blanche Lincoln (AR), Mary Landrieu (LA) and Ben Nelson (NE) are co-sponsoring Murkowksi's resolution.  And according to Rockefeller's release, Congressmen Alan Mollohan (D-WV) and Rick Boucher (D-VA) are introducing companion legislation.

"The real threat to the U.S. is the EPA enacting by dictate regulations that, in effect, puts the agency in charge of the entire nation's economy.  Members of both political parties must stand together before it is too late to stand up to this tyranny by the EPA," Wilson declared.

"The economy, every facet of which runs on energy, mustn't be in the hands of the radical EPA bureaucracy who place primacy on appeasing the false science of radical environmentalism over the rights and best interests of all Americans," Wilson concluded.

NetRight Daily: Spending Limits, and More 

GOP Spending Limit a Good Start:  This week, the House Republican Conference, represented by Congressmen Jeb Hensarling, Mike Pence and John Campbell, presented a solution to the U.S. sovereign debt crisis that promises to finally bring the federal government's unbridled spending out of the red.

Sen. Rockefeller Has the Right Idea on the EPA:  Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today praised Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) for introducing legislation that would place a two-year moratorium on any decision by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to cap by regulation carbon emissions.

Rand Paul Declares Support for Term Limits:  "Term limits is the preeminent issue of our campaign," said Paul in a telephone conversation with Phil Blumel, the President of U.S. Term Limits. "It will be the #1 bill I will work on when I get to the U.S. Senate."

One Man's Health Care Fears:  Can anything possibly be written about health care that hasn't already been hashed out ad nauseum? Since this time a year ago, we've been discussing why socialized medicine is disastrous, why America's government can't afford to finance all of the health care coverage a bill like this would require, why it couldn't pass, why it nonetheless did, why it seemed to die and now has resurrected and why it may make it through the Senate, but run aground in the House…

NRCC - UNION LEADER: Hodes, Shea-Porter "Party Hacks" For Cap & Trade  

NOTE: “When speaking about the bill, Hodes and Shea-Porter simply parrot party talking points. They claim it will create thousands of ‘green jobs’ and help the economy. But they can't know that because the bill was so huge that neither of them could possibly have read it all before voting for it. They also ignore the fact that the bill will, in President Obama's own words, cause energy bills to ‘necessarily skyrocket,’ which will harm the economy and cost thousands of jobs.”

 

“....Suckers are just what Hodes and Shea-Porter have been. Had they been looking out for New Hampshire, they would have voted ‘no.’”

 

Green parrots: Hodes, Shea-Porter

New Hampshire Union Leader

When Paul Hodes and Carol Shea-Porter ran for Congress, both said they would be independent voices for New Hampshire, not party hacks. In office, they've been mostly party hacks (although Hodes showed some independence on ethics votes). Their support for the awful cap-and-trade bill is a great example.

 

When speaking about the bill, Hodes and Shea-Porter simply parrot party talking points. They claim it will create thousands of "green jobs" and help the economy. But they can't know that because the bill was so huge that neither of them could possibly have read it all before voting for it. They also ignore the fact that the bill will, in President Obama's own words, cause energy bills to "necessarily skyrocket," which will harm the economy and cost thousands of jobs.

 

Other Democrats are smartly skeptical of the cap-and-trade supporters' grandiose claims. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, told Politico, "I have close to a 16-year, 100 percent environmental record. I want to support this bill, but it's got to protect manufacturing. Because if we don't, it's worse for global warming." He's right. It doesn't help the planet to send manufacturing jobs to countries with lax emissions standards.

 

Sen. Claire McKaskill, D-Mo., said last week, "We've got to be very careful with what we do with this legislation. We need to be a leader in the world, but we don't want to be a sucker."

 

Suckers are just what Hodes and Shea-Porter have been. Had they been looking out for New Hampshire, they would have voted "no."
