Obama Stifling Job Growth and Choking off Energy Independence in America




Smoke and Mirrors

Smoke and Mirrors - The Obama M.O.

What else can be said folks?  I have a sneaking suspicion some if not a lot of the sheeple that blog liberally as well as others across the nation will vote for this narcissistic, marinated in Marxism, liberation theology goop, yet again.  That is IF he runs, but what narcissist wouldn’t?

Maybe not because he’s half white or half black but because discerning a lie from reality is not their forte and seeing that their friends and family have lost their jobs and are unable to find employment based simply on the fact that this type of detrimental behavior perpetrated by the Left is the reason why they remain unemployed with prices for everything skyrocketing.

All this while the majority of “American Energy” sits idle in the Gulf of Mexico.  The Obammer Administration with their strangling regulation of government and business across America are who is stifling job growth, employment, as well as America’s energy independence.   Don’t give me the “if we drill today it won’t help today”, THAT IS A BUNCH OF HOG A DOUBLE S WASH.  If we had began exploration and drilling in ANWR two years ago…or had the continued ineffectual Moratorium been lifted in the Gulf area…I rest my case. 

We certainly wouldn’t be whooping and hollaring for Brazil ???? would we?    Let’s give American jobs, to Brazil.  Let’s give our energy independence to Brazil.  better yet, let’s give Brazil our MONEY!  Yep.  That is what Dear Leader has done for you.

I didn’t say it, it is the News.

UPDATE…OF COURSE:  Brazilian Oil Drilling
Even though President Obama is against offshore drilling for our country, he signed an executive order to loan $2 Billion of our taxpayer dollars (which we can’t afford to loan since we’re broke) to a Brazilian Oil Exploration Company (the 8th largest company in the entire world) to drill for oil off the coast of Brazil! (Petrobras).  The oil that comes from this operation is for the sole purpose and use of China and NOT THE USA !

Now here’s the real clincher…the Chinese government is under contract to purchase all the oil this field will produce, which is hundreds of millions of barrels”… We have absolutely no gain from this transaction whatsoever!

Wait, it gets more interesting.

Guess who is the largest individual stockholder of this Brazilian Oil Company and who would benefit most from this? It is American BILLIONAIRE, George Soros, who was President Obama’s most generous financial supporter during his campaign. If you are able to connect the dots and follow the money, you are probably as upset as I am. Not a word of this transaction was broadcast on any of the other news networks! Are they doing their job? Think about it.

Below is the Wall street Journal article confirming this information.

Obama/Waxman Fast Track Carbon Tax; before Memorial Day

Posted by Steve Elliott on May 11, 2009

All signs indicate that President Obama and Rep. Henry Waxman are pushing for a key vote on the Carbon Tax BEFORE Memorial Day — a tax that studies show will cost each family $3,100 each and every year.

Last week, Obama met behind closed doors with House Democrats to pressure them to pass the Carbon Tax. Now, Waxman is even contemplating skipping the Subcommittee hearing on the $2 trillion Carbon Cap and Trade Tax (The Waxman-Markey bill; original draft here; summary here) and fast-tracking this new tax straight to his Energy and Commerce Committee.

Waxman wants this all done by the end of next week… and Team Obama is turning up the heat on key Democrats in the House to pressure quick passage of the Carbon Tax.

+ + +Why Obama and Waxman Are Fast-Tracking The CO2 Tax

There’s a reason Obama and Waxman are pulling out the stops to pressure Democrats to pass this tax through the Committee…

Obama, Waxman, Pelosi and the gang fear that any delays
could kill their precious plan to “save the planet” and give
the government the power to tax and control the air!

That’s because even some Democrats are now getting nervous about imposing such a large tax at a time when the economy is struggling. Reports indicate this new tax could cost the average American over $3,000 every year and result in 7 million lost jobs! (Go here to download a .pdf of the MIT report from which the $3,100 estimate is generated. Here is the pertinent data from pages 24-25 which reports $366 billion it carbon tax revenues. The GOP is using this number, divided by 111 million households, to derive the roughly $3,100 cost per family.)

Dems — especially the Blue Dog Dems — are getting very squeamish. Many are particularly annoyed that Waxman is considering skipping the subcommittee hearing in order to rush the bill to the full committee and get his vote by the Memorial Day break. The New York Times reports that Waxman will produce a new version of the bill this week to appease the concerns of moderates.

+ +Americans Oppose this new Tax

Democrats and the White House try to claim that cap and trade is not a tax. But Warren Buffett recently admitted that cap and trade is a “regressive” tax that the utilities will “pass through” to consumers. And even Democrat John Dingell admitted recently that “Cap and Trade is a tax, and a great big one.”

How big is this tax? Obama’s shows “only” $600 billion for carbon tax revenues — that alone would be the largest single tax increase in history. But the real, hidden number is closer to $2 trillion over 8 years. And the American people overwhelmingly do NOT want the Carbon Tax (by a 2-to-1 margin according to Pew Research).

+ + +Global “reset” of the economy under way!

If the cap-and-trade scheme passes, it will initiate the most radical restructuring of our economy toward socialism in American history. And don’t be fooled… Al Gore and “Big Environment” will get filthy rich in the process. In fact, as Timothy Carney of the Washington Examiner explains, companies like GE are lining up to profit from the global warming scheme. Carney points out that GE has invested millions in lobbying in favor of carbon tax related schemes. And GE’s Chairman Jeffrey Immelt actually sees a global “reset” of capitalism under way:

“I believe we are going through more than a cycle. The global economy, and capitalism, will be “reset” in several important ways. The interaction between government and business will change forever. In a reset economy, the government will be a regulator; and also an industry policy champion, a financier, and a key partner.”

Waxman wants to fly under the radar and push the Carbon Tax Scheme before the American people realize what is happening. As a result, the most crucial vote on the Carbon Tax cap-and-trade scheme may be taking place before Memorial Day.


If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” – Samuel Adams, speech at the Philadelphia State House on August 1, 1776.
