(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Not Covered By DEM/MSM: Obama Admin Held In Contempt in re Drilling:


This is the third recent major ruling by a federal court which has, essentially (and rightly so), resoundingly slapped the Obama Administration for overstepping its boundaries and, further, acting illegally. From Bloomberg News:

The Obama Administration acted in contempt by continuing its deepwater-drilling moratorium after the policy was struck down, a New Orleans judge ruled.

Interior Department regulators acted with “determined disregard” by lifting and reinstituting a series of policy changes that restricted offshore drilling, following the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history, U.S. District Judge, Martin Feldman of New Orleans ruled yesterday.

“Each step the government took following the court’s imposition of a preliminary injunction showcases its defiance,” Feldman said in the ruling.

“Such dismissive conduct, viewed in tandem with the re-imposition of a second blanket and substantively identical moratorium, and in light of the national importance of this case, provide this court with clear and convincing evidence of the government’s contempt,” Feldman said.

President Barack Obama’s administration first halted offshore exploration in waters deeper than 500 feet in May, after the explosion and sinking of the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig off the Louisiana coast led to a subsea blowout of a BP Plc well that spewed more than 4.1 million barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico.

You won't, naturally, find this information plastered over the DEM/MSM because, after all, it conflicts with the general view that the Obama Administration can do no wrong.

Concurrently in Egypt, regarding American reporters, an ABC newsman was threatened with beheading after the vehicle in which he and others were riding was carjacked.
The men released us only after our camera man (who was Muslim. -BZ) appealed to the generous spirit of the Egyptian people, hugging and kissing an elder," he added in a subsequent tweet.

At the same time, attempting to limit drilling for our own petroleum independence, Mr Obama's EPA began enforcing new emissions rules in January whilst, in February, providing General Electric with an exemption from these same emissions mandates. Payback, anyone?

From The Washington Examiner's Timothy P. Carney:

Last month, the Obama EPA began enforcing new rules regulating the greenhouse gas emissions from any new or expanded power plants.

This week, the EPA issued its first exemption, Environment & Energy News reports:

The Obama administration will spare a stalled power plant project in California from the newest federal limits on greenhouse gases and conventional air pollution, U.S. EPA says in a new court filing that marks a policy shift in the face of industry groups and Republicans accusing the agency of holding up construction of large industrial facilities.

According to a declaration by air chief Gina McCarthy, officials reviewed EPA policies and decided it was appropriate to "grandfather" projects such as the Avenal Power Center, a proposed 600-megawatt power plant in the San Joaquin Valley, so they are exempted from rules such as new air quality standards for smog-forming nitrogen dioxide (NO2).

There's something interesting about the Avenal Power Center:

The proposed Avenal Energy project will be a combined-cycle generating plant consisting of two natural gas-fired General Electric 7FA Gas Turbines with Heat Recovery Steam Generators (HRSG) and one General Electric Steam Turbine.

Maybe GE CEO Jeff Immelt's closeness to President Obama, and his broad support for Obama's agenda, had nothing to do with this exemption. But we have no way of knowing that, and given the administration's record of regularly misleading Americans regarding lobbyists, frankly, I wouldn't trust the White House if they told me there was no connection.

No trust?? Can you believe this?? The nerve of that reporter!

No drilling. No infrastructure. No electrical generation stations. No refineries.

At the same time, promoting the overkill of our electrical grid (with electric cars) which -- by the way -- can't even take the current load. Just ask Texas.

All the while, oil rockets to $103 per barrel --

Unemployment is up to 9.8% --

This nation is casting about desperately for a leader, any leader, who can simultaneously tell the truth, make it palatable, provide a beat of optimism and, moreover, provide a plan that doesn't include spending and spending and spending. Application of both the truth and common sense.

Mr Reagan is dead, so don't ask.

And trust me, he is so frustrated from Heaven.

This country is being handled with the finesse, detail, deft touch, maturity, logic and professionalism as suggested by the above graphic.

Obama IS *The Manchurian Candidate* personified... I don't know why so many fail to see that and fall under his spell...

It's not like bloggers in our circle of influence haven't tried to point it out...

Obama. Wasn't he once a "contitutional law professor"?

Obama is a muzzie. Now proven by the latest release of his Kenyan birth cert.
So, the veil has been pulled off this poser's face for all to see why his actions have been so pro Islam in and on anything this man touches or is involved with, including all his appointed Czars.
I hope all our courts now will take action accordingly, and our Republican Representatives in our Govt. take appropriate and swift action.

I ask but one question:

HOW do you acquire an energy policy when you won't ALLOW any ENERGY to be PRODUCED??

I have but one answer, and the desire to NOT self incriminate myself stops me from putting that answer into words...

Yep, gotta love the actions of the "king" of America... total disregard of laws, and anybody that says the waiver is NOT political is smoking 'something'....

The msm are indeed avoiding this information. Of course, if GWB had been held in contempt, that story would be all over the news.

Keeping Americans ignorant of the truth about the Obama administration may well get him re-elected in 2012. **sigh**

AOW: some may not wish to read this, but I submit the country is sufficiently illogical and ill-informed as to do it all over again.

Arrogant, criminal and traitorous, both the media and the administration.
