EPA Policy: “Crucify” Oil and Gas Companies

Wondering why gas prices are so high? Al Armendariz, Region VI Administrator in Obama’s EPA, makes it clear:

“I was in a meeting once and I gave an analogy to my staff about my philosophy of enforcement, and I think it was probably a little crude and maybe not appropriate for the meeting, but I’ll go ahead and tell you what I said:

“It was kind of like how the Romans used to, you know, conquer villages in the Mediterranean. They’d go in to a little Turkish town somewhere, they’d find the first five guys they saw and they’d crucify them.

“Then, you know, that town was really easy to manage for the next few years.”

“It’s a deterrent factor,” Armendariz said, explaining that the EPA is following the Romans’ philosophy for subjugating conquered villages.

There weren’t any Turkish towns on the Mediterranean in Roman times; Asia Minor was part of Greece, and Turks lived in Central Asia. But Armendariz does get his thuggish point across.

The office of countermoonbat Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) explains how this philosophy is applied to bureaucratic suffocation of the energy sector:

“Not long after Administrator Armendariz made these comments in 2010, EPA targeted US natural gas producers in Pennsylvania, Texas and Wyoming.

“In all three of these cases, EPA initially made headline-grabbing statements either insinuating or proclaiming outright that the use of hydraulic fracturing by American energy producers was the cause of water contamination, but in each case their comments were premature at best — and despite their most valiant efforts, they have been unable to find any sound scientific evidence to make this link.”

Senator Inhofe observes the obvious — that this provides “a glimpse of the Obama administration’s true agenda.”

We’ll be treated to a closer look at that agenda if media support and voter fraud are enough to get Obama reelected. The gloves will come off once he has the “flexibility” of not having to face voters again.

But it’s not as if we didn’t know in advance what Obama would do to the country. It was before the 2008 election that he said this:

“Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.”

…and this:

“We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK,” Obama said.

“That’s not leadership. That’s not going to happen,” he added.

In closely related news, Obama’s Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar has acknowledged that gas could reach a crippling $9 per gallon.

Electing this leftist radical was a contemptible act of national suicide. One wrist has been slit and is bleeding copiously. It remains to be seen whether we will slit the other.

The mentality of our liberal bureaucrat rulers on display.

On tips from Jester, Kevin S, J, Bob Roberts, Shawn, and Jeremy.

    HANG the libfuck.

    Never fear, Romney will make some token cuts to this agency.

    I totally agree with this philosophy we should do this to government bureaucrats who F%$# with our lives.

  4. StanInTexas says:

    Another thing that happened in roamn times we should emmulate.

    When a Roman senator proposed a new law, he was placed on a column with a hangman’s noose around his neck. If the measure passed, the rope was removed. If it did not, the column was removed.

  5. Momster says:

    Remember. remember, on the sixth of November, in the year two thousand and twelve.

  6. Sam Adams says:

    Seriously, who would vote for these idiots. As to Romney making token cuts….maybe; maybe not. Romney, totally unlike Obama, knows what it takes to make a business successful and has done so many times. Additionally Romney balanced the budget the four years he was governor without tax increases, something not even St. Ronald was able to accomplish.

    What type of raving moonbat thinks that Romney wouldn’t be lightyears ahead of the current administration? Are you off your meds?

  7. Winston Smith says:

    If members of a Republican administration talked like that about Green Energy scam companies the media would be demanding their head on a platter and it would be on 24/7 spin cycle on CNN, MessNBC, and all major newcasts.

  8. Winston Smith says:

    In any event this guys words will make a great campaign ad – particularly in energy producing states from Alaska to Texas to Pennsylvania and beyond.

    This little asshole is a criminal and needs to be dealt with accordingly.

    In closely related news, Obama’s “Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar has acknowledged that gas could reach a crippling $9 per gallon.”

    I don’t foresee any problems with this Ken. It’s not like people will be rioting in the streets at $9/gal. Oh wait, that is what they want so they can declare marshal law cancel the election and take over permanently.

    Just fucking try it.

  10. chuck in st paul says:

    The bad news is that the half of America with it’s hand in the other half’s pockets will certainly vote for Obysmal and his fellow kleptocrats.

    The good news is that independents are net 13% for Romney. They will determine the winner.

    The bad news is that Romney is a squishy semi-RINO.

    The best news is that Romney is NOT Obysmal.

  11. Sam Adams says:

    Churck, Dick Morris has made the point over and over that in the last 8 elections, seven times all the independents went for the challenger. Bush in 2004 was the only exception.

    What we need to get into some hard headed conservatives is that, while Romney is far from the perfect conservative, if you don’t get off your a$$ and vote for him, there won’t be much left in 2016….if we survive that long.

    I believe Al Armendariz and his fellow travelers should be forced to live without any oil or petroleum products in their lives, since they are so opposed to it. Not only does that mean no airplane rides, no car rides, etc., it also means no synthetic rubber products; no tires for their cars or bikes. No lubricants beyond vegetable oil for the bearing on their bikes. No synthetic fabrics…kiss the spandex goodbye and the wasteband around their shorts. Let them live the life that they are advocating.

  12. KHarn says:

    Standard communist tactic; make life terrible, then ease off a bit so they can say “the party” has “improved” things.

  13. Clingtomyguns says:

    All I can say is: Screw Armendariz and Hussein Sotero and the “my little ponies” they rode in on.

  14. James McEnanly says:

    Mr Armendariz has an odd sense of what government in this country is intended to be. The Romans came as conquerors, our government is simply to take care of administrative tasks. The people who make up our government, both elected and appointed, are our employees, not our masters.

  15. AC says:

    Are the atheists going to file a lawsuit to prevent the use of religious metaphors by a government employee?

  16. Festivus says:

    Once upon a long time ago I worked as a government regulatory compliance officer and I heard almost the exact same speech given by an executive where I worked.

    This is precisely who they are.

    btw, I’m reformed now and I’m representing the other (righteous) side. lol

    Of course government functionaries see themselves not as servants of the people, but as our “leaders,” sent (by God on High) too show us the path of righteousness and truth, and if we hesitate to go down that path, to use whatever force is necessary until we make the “right” choice.

    Most people miss the fact that this is what governments do, regardless of who or which political party is in charge. That is exactly why the founders favored a weak federal government.

    You, sir, have my sympathies. Sometime you must share your conversion story.

    In the late 1930’s, Stalin purged one out of three officers in the Russian army, just before the outbreak of World War II.

    He might have been on to something after all.

    Thanks for reminding me about the “drive our SUVs, keep our thermostats at 72 degrees, blah, blah, blah ” quote.

    Let’s not forget this one either http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-aLcbr63ME

    I swear, if the RNC would just start running ads of nothing more than showing BO and his people saying things like this, we would win in landslide. The vast majority of the public have never heard these things.
