EPA Joins in Obama’s Social Justice Looting Spree

Spreading the wealth around while America still has any to spread is such an urgent priority, even the ecofascists of the Environmental Protection Agency are getting in on the act.

The federal agency that’s spending a fortune to bring “environmental justice” to poor and minority communities around the U.S. has just dropped an additional $6.2 million to train low-income residents for “green jobs” in one city alone.

To date, only one actual “green job” has ever been discovered — and Van Jones lost it when the erstwhile “Green Jobs Czar” was exposed by Glenn Beck as a communist, a militant racist, and a 9/11 Truther. No word on what he did with the $60 billion of our money that was expropriated to create other green jobs that never materialized.

It’s all part of the Obama Administration’s costly crusade to help underserved populations obtain the same degree of protection from health and environmental hazards as their wealthy counterparts. Here’s how it works; the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) gives money to leftwing groups — including some dedicated to helping illegal immigrants — that teach black, Latino and indigenous folks how to recycle, reduce carbon emissions through “weatherization” and participate in “green jobs” training.

In the last few months alone the EPA has doled out nearly $10 million for environmental justice causes that include a multi million-dollar study on how pollution, stress and social factors affect “poor and underserved communities.” … As if this weren’t bad enough, the EPA keeps wasting taxpayer dollars on these dubious causes. The latest allocation of $6.2 million will go to 21 “community groups” that will “recruit, train and place unemployed, predominately low-income residents in polluted areas” in Atlanta. Uncle Sam’s investment will “create good, green jobs that protect the health of local families and residents and prepare communities for continued economic growth,” according to Obama’s EPA chief, Lisa Jackson.

Continued economic growth? If there were any economic growth, they wouldn’t be slums — I mean, “polluted areas.” Obama is pouring our money down these rat holes as a reward for voting for him.

Needless to say, this has nothing to do with the environment and everything to do with a left-wing looting spree that has not slowed its pace, even as bankruptcy looms in our future.

The malignant EPA’s budget has exploded 34% since Lisa Jackson was put in charge. Yet our rulers tell us that they can’t cut spending, so taxes and the deficit will have to keep shooting up and up until the whole corrupt mess collapses into chaos.

    The EPA better enjoy their ride because they will become “extinct” and disbanded in 2013. All you EPA morons will become part of the private sectors unemployed. Guaranteed!

    Warning: Strict Air Pollution Standards Could Produce Electricity Shortages in Texas

    EPA Administrator tells 1200 WOAI news fears are overblown
    Jim Forsyth

    The organization that manages the Texas electrical grid is warning that the state will be facing a shortage of electricity as early as next year, due to tough new environmental rules which were imposed on Texas at the last minute, 1200 WOAI news reports.

    “We’re looking at a point now that we’re concerned that we won’t have enough generation if we’re forced to meet this short timeline,” said Dottie Roark of the Electric Reliability Council of Texas.

    Texas was included in the so-called ‘Cross State Pollution’ rules imposed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency later this month, and the timeline for conforming to the rules is less than a year. Roark says many coal-fired power plants will have to either shut down to install expensive scrubbers or other equipment, or go out of operation entirely due to the rule.

    These socialist eco-fascist morons bring death and destruction wherever they go. But note they are working to specificially increase hardship in a state where their nonsense previously had little effect. Texas was still doing pretty good due to the strong conservative presence there. And, of course, that just won’t do. In typical moonbat fashion, instead of working to life those who are downtrodden, the obamunists do their best to bring everyone down to the same level of misery.

    I mean “instead of working to lift”… typo!

    What convenient timing. Just when the U.N. is announcing it’s new “green helmet” jobs to combat against climate change deniers:

    “A special meeting of the United Nations security council is due to consider whether to expand its mission to keep the peace in an era of climate change.

    Small island states, which could disappear beneath rising seas, are pushing the security council to intervene to combat the threat to their existence.

    There has been talk, meanwhile, of a new environmental peacekeeping force – green helmets – which could step into conflicts caused by shrinking resources.

    The UN secretary general, Ban Ki-Moon, is expected to address the meeting on Wednesday.

    But Germany, which called the meeting, has warned it is premature to expect the council to take the plunge into green peacemaking or even adopt climate change as one of its key areas of concern.

    ‘It is too early to seriously think about council action on climate change. This is clearly not on the agenda,’ Germany’s ambassador to the UN, Peter Wittig, wrote in the Huffington Post.

    ‘A good first step would be to acknowledge the realities of climate change and its inherent implications to international peace and security,’ he wrote.

    Obama is following the example of Big City Mayors like Coleman Young, Marion Berry, and John Street who simply looted the treasury while reducing their fiefdoms to ruins.

    @ Jodie
    I read about those new green helmets. I figure they’ll make just as good a target as a powder blue one.

    Jimbo,

    I like where you’re going with that!

    Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell did his small part back in Oct to halt new leases for natural gas drilling on state land(1.5mil acres), since they weren’t going to be taxed enough.

    I think that if Petrobras were to try to develop the area there wouldn’t be a problem. Think the BP spill and who’s in the Gulf now. http://www.petrobrasusa.us/main.jsp?lumPageId=402882831FDB9DFF011FEB62B0432130&lumI=petrobras_usa.service.highlights.details&lumItemId=4028828320D96EFB0120F1FD3F2A7EB8

    Sadly, and with each passing day, i am becoming a believer in the fact that the American people, in their constant state of weakness, ignorance, and their mindless adherence to whatever the MSM tells them, are dooming our great nation with their tolerence of what these elected liars and crooks do.

  • whotothewhat

    that teach black, Latino and indigenous folks how to recycle, reduce carbon emissions through “weatherization” and participate in “green jobs” training.

    Don’t most of them have green jobs already growing pot and mowing lawns collecting aluminum cans?

  • AC

    The ghettos never needed any recycling training. Give a Democrat voter from the hood a crack pipe and soon enough he’ll be recycling all the copper pipe and scrap iron out of the empty buildings in the neighborhood.

    Maybe they can champion Detroilet as a mecca of urban recycling.
