"You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done."

Barack Obama's Coercion Continues

"When I was asked earlier about the issue of coal…under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket…even regardless of what I say about whether coal is good or bad, because I’m capping greenhouse gasses, coal power plants, natural gas…you name it…whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, they would have to retro-fit their operations."

“Whether Barack Obama is simply incompetent as president
or has some hidden agenda to undermine this country, at home and abroad, he has nearly everything he needs to ruin America, including a fool for a vice president”
Dr. Thomas Sowell

Experts estimate that 51% - 53% of ALL Electricity produced in the United States comes from Coal-Fired Electric Producing Plants. There are approximately 130 million Homes in the United States and 66 million Homes will be affected by "Skyrocketing Electricity Rates" (25% - 40% higher rates) and millions of Businesses from Manufacturing plants to Shopping Malls and Grocery Stores. This will increase prices on everything imaginable.

Barack Obama has NOT presented a 'Comprehensive' plan to transition from Coal to other energy sources for producing electricity or a 'Comprehensive' plan to transition from "Dirty Coal" to "Clean Coal-Fired" Electric Producing Plants.

Instead of a Bill presented to Congress, Barack Obama is using the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) to enforce his 'RadicaL Agenda'.

In June, 2011 the EPA proposed regulations to limit emissions of mercury, lead and other toxins from coal-fired plants that would take effect in 3 1/2 years. AEP (American Electric Power) said it would have to close plants in Ohio, West Virginia and Virginia by the end of 2014 and retire generating units at plants in five states as soon as by the end of 2012, the Associated Press reported last week.

Experts predict that 100's of thousands of jobs will be lost.

During an Environment and the Economy Subcommittee hearing, EPA Assistant Administrator Mathy Stanislaus admitted to U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner that the EPA does not account for jobs when they issue regulations.

This is another example of the Barack Obama Administration 'Forcing and Coercing' the implementation of Obama's 'Radical Agenda' - instead of following the 'Will of the People' through Legislation in Congress.

This is Only the 'Tip of the Iceberg:

This will NOT only affect Electric Coal-Fired producing plants, but the iron and steel industries and every industry that uses coal, iron, and steel.

  1. Coal is used to power steam engines, heat some homes, and to make iron ore into iron the metal.
  2. Coal is used to heat pig iron to form it.
  3. Coal is roasted to make it into coke.
  4. Coke is used to convert iron the metal into steel the metal.
  5. Coal is used to form steel ingots into shapes like I-beams.
  6. Steel is made into parts like nuts and bolts, angles, rebars, pipes, etc.
  7. Reinforcing bars are needed for reinforced concrete.
  8. Steel parts are made into machines such as lathes, harvesters, reactors, pumps, solar panels, and wind turbines.
  9. Steel is needed for drilling and transporting oil, natural gas, coal, and nuclear fuel.
  10. This could decimate the Construction Industry which uses rebars for Highways and Steel for bridges and Buildings.
  11. The Canning Industry uses metal for canning vegetables and other products.
All of this coming at one of the worst Economic Crises in United States History, with millions out of work or underemployed, millions either having their homes repossessed or underwater and Gasoline prices which have more than doubled since Barack Obama became President
