Yesterday, we heard about the Exxon Mobil witch hunt...
CR: New York has launched a political witch hunt into Exxon Mobil for not promoting the Left’s climate change policies.And of course the Clintonistas (Gore and Hillary) have jumped aboard, especially when their wells run dry!
NY Attorney General, Eric T. Schneiderman, has begun a sweeping investigation of Exxon Mobil to determine whether the company lied to the public about the risks of climate change or to investors about how those risks might hurt the oil business, the New York Times reports.
This is what happens when you don’t worship the same idols that the Federal Government does. They criminalize your dissent.
CR Editor-in-Chief calls the investigation for what it is—a witch hunt—and eloquently unveils how the Left has been propping up climate change in order to greater regulate our lives.
Exxon Mobil is under investigation by an Attorney General in NY for possible lies about climate change – yet climate change itself isn’t even a scientific proof. Mark says that now the government has once again regulated another part of our lives – that once the government deems something that they don’t like as illegal or wrong, they can go after an individual or a company over it. We now have a criminal assault on those that produce electricity and gas in the country because the Democrat Party doesn’t believe in capitalism or America. ~ ML, 11/5/15CR: Have you ever declined to promote the Democrat agenda while engaging in commerce? You might be under criminal investigation.
There’s a lot of talk in Washington these days about over-criminalization and the need for criminal justice “reform.” However, while Congress pursues an agenda of emptying the prisons of violent criminals, they are overlooking the true threat of over-criminalization – political witch hunts on the part of liberal government officials against companies and individuals who don’t obey their religion of global warming.
Hillary Clinton has called for a federal investigation into Exxon Mobil Corp.’s funding of climate change denial just months after the Houston-based oil giant decided to end its sponsorship of the Clinton Global Initiative.Related links: Exxon Mobil being INVESTIGATED over ‘misleading statements’ on CLIMATE CHANGE
Exxon Mobil Investigated for Possible Climate Change Lies by New York Attorney General
Then first thing today, Obama genuflects to his environmental altar and rejected the Keystone Pipeline in yet another Washington power play...
But didn't he use it as a 'campaign cudgel' at one point? That's precisely what he did...
GatewayPundit: Barack Obama went to Oklahoma to promote the Keystone pipeline in 2012. Obama said he was “making the pipeline a priority.”Related link: Obama BOWS to environmentalist EXTREMISTS and DENIES Keystone Pipeline!!
But it was just another lie.
Obama also took credit for the oil boom in America.
The Keystone Pipeline project was expected to create tens of thousands of high paying jobs in the oil industry. The project itself would create 20,000 construction jobs. And the pipeline would bring oil from Canada and North Dakota to refineries in the United States.
Obama rejected the plan in 2012.
Then Obama vetoed legislation that approved construction of the Keystone XL pipeline in February 2015.
Today Barack Obama will announce he is killing the project.
Here's more about the power play involved...
RedState: What took them so long? The Obama Administration finally rejected the Keystone XL pipeline on a Friday when everyone had already moved on to other things. Sure, Warren Buffet and other Obama donors will benefit because they own trains that will be used to transport the stuff. Sure, the EPA will stay busy with train derailments and natural disasters, etc. But why now?The truth of the matter is that America has built the equivalent of 10 Keystone pipelines since 2010, and nobody said anything. But now, when sights are set on a literal keystone of a deal for American opportunity, capitalism and energy independence, as well as the majority of Americans still backing its construction, Obama plays his political hand (or iron fist rather).
Well, Hillary finally was brave enough to come out against it, so Obama had his cover. See, the Democrats are going through a political realignment. They no longer are depending on entrepreneurs, they cannot win in the west, and they know black voters will never leave them. So they can take this step, finally, to make highly educated, rich, while people from New England feel good about themselves and then expand the welfare state to take care of those who’ll be out of jobs.
Never mind the potential environmental problems. Every week another train derails it seems. They are fine with that. Better for the EPA to earn its keep than harmful, awful oil be transported from Canada.
What makes this so silly is that everyone knew they were going to do this. But they waited until Hillary Clinton was ready to announce her opposition to do it. I guess Barry really is controlled by strong women.
Boy, how these guys have absolutely SNOWED the environmentalists for their own reward. It's party first and foremost, and if it takes pushing the green agenda to halt advancement and independence across the energy landscape, both side of that eco-coin are game. That's all this concern really boils down to.
Meanwhile, as places in the world that don't like us very much maintain their stranglehold over energy production, we're dragged further into degrowth. What a utopia...
