An Agenda Of Crucifixion

Updated on April 27, 2012

The Window To The Soul

I'm a firm believer and defender of the First Amendment's right to free speech because that may just allow access to the window of an individual's, or administration's, soul. Yesterday I wrote about "If You Want America To Fail..." and it dealt primarily with what to attack, how to attack and where to attack. I will include that video at the link found at the end of this Hub because it is again relevant to the subject at hand. The wonder of video is upon us where what people say when they may think they aren't being caught on tape. I use videos quite often of things Obama has promised or stated regarding his administration. We now have enough "on record" when before he was elected he had "no record." This has to article is about EPA crucifixion.

Go back to the beginning of this administration and Obama's attempt at enacting a Cap & Tax law which failed to pass even though he had both houses of Congress under his belt. Congress failed to pass what "The Anointed One" wanted so he appointed the EPA to become his hatchet man. So along comes a top EPA administrator by the name of Al Almendariz explaining his philosophy of regulatory enforcement which involves crucifying oil and gas companies. Those commodities seem rather vital to the day-to-day running of our nation and crucifixion seems a bit extreme, something comes to mind about cruel and unusual punishment. The original video on You Tube has been removed by a copy right infringement claim by a David McFatridge so this one will have to suffice. It seems David must not be proud of his footage.

How To Bully People...

Here is the clear version of just what this far left environmentalist. sitting now in a position of power in the EPA, had to say that day:

"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, and then he on to add:

“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.

The real zinger was when he went on further to add:

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

The oil and gas companies pay executives good money to manage themselves and sure don't need EPA administrators with a sadistic bent to do their jobs for them. If memory serves me right the Gestapo operated along similar tactics to control what they needed to control in order to seize and maintain power. What in the world is our nation coming to when we have a bureaucracy as powerful as the EPA running around advocating crucifixion, especially pertaining to companies that mine "the people's" resources? They belong to "We, the People..." and not the federal government. Our national resources belong to us despite the fact that Obama desires you to believe otherwise.

Maybe Al Advocates Taking Everyone's First Born To Exercise An Agenda?

Shortly after advocating the "Roman Way" philosophy of the EPA the smear campaign was on against the natural gas industry. So they selected their "five guys" and off they went. How you go about smearing anyone is based upon usually making unsubstantiated allegations which the EPA is becoming famous for. The EPA began its crucifixion campaign about the process known as fracking.

Here's the way Senator Jim Inhofe from Oklahoma, who is looking into this matter now, put it:

"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."

Walt Kelly Had It Right

There was a case here in Texas, where I happen to live, where Mendariz tried to nail Texas Resources to the cross about fracking contending that the process was contaminating the drinking water supply. So the Texas Land And Railroad Commission stepped up to look into whether that was true or not. What they found is what anyone should have expected them to find - nothing. They found no scientific evidence to support Al's crucifixion. The reason they found no scientific evidence is because there is none. This is akin to global warming and that hoax.

Well, when this video hit the circuit Al became quite contrite as far left loons are known to do when caught with their hand in the proverbial cookie jar. Here's his apology for his "poor choice of words:"

"It was an offensive and inaccurate way to portray our efforts to address potential violations of our nation's environmental laws. I am and have always been committed to fair and vigorous enforcement of those laws."

That's all well and good Al but let me point something out to you. It's fine that you apologized for having been caught on tape. But what you said back then gives the public a good look at the soul of this administration, Obama and people like you.

Me? I would have fired you immediately as I would have many others caught with their hands in the cookie jar during this scandal ridden administration.

As for the American public they need to start seriously asking themselves if they are ready for those skyrocketing electricity rates Obama "promised" us. Or those $8 - $9 dollar a gallon gas prices that Secretary of The Energy Chu has stated is this administration's objective? Just vote for Obama again and see what he meant by "I'll have more flexibility after this next election." Yes, he did say that to the President of Russia, one of our adversaries. He was caught on tape too.


Are you getting the picture yet? Are you seeing the hidden agenda that Obama and his minions have? I'm just askin...

As Always,

The Frog Prince

      Fracking has been around almost as long as oil and gas. Now that they have lost the battle on ground water contamination, they are going for the leap to "causing earthquakes". This is getting real old having to try to "prove a negative" to stop public uproars about things which held no element of truth from the start. The EPA is the gestapho of America and really needs to be reined in by Congress but those boys have no cahonnies...too afraid they might miss a vote. Of course we all know what eventually happened to the Romans...they became too proud of their ways and lost their heads. Thanks for a great article, Jim. WB

      Yeah, and the Romans even had "class warfare" going on with their crucifixions, too. If you were a slave, you got crucified upside down.

      And since nothing Obama says is ever "straight up"....

      Well. Except maybe tonight. When he said that the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull is that the pit bull is delicious.

      DAWG. The other red meat.

      IN The Economic Collapse newsletter that I receive daily I read just before I came here that under the same agenda 21 that our government has forced 88% of all dairy farmers out of business for good in America since 1970 and that 80% of all the corn grown for human consumption in America is grown from "genetically" modified seeds by Monsanto a leader in Agenda 21 and I read that in 1970 that we had 6.8 million farms and today we have less than 2 million farms and only 20,000 of those farms are growing food for commercial sale. Farm Aid is quoted as saying in the same newsletter that every week in America that another 330 farmers walk away from their family farms----there are new laws on the books to make it against the law for kids to do chores on a family farm so that should pretty much wipe out the rest of them----all in the name of Agenda 21 and all in preparation for the New World Order but the most disturbing part of this newsletter I read on The Economic Collapse was the video----it showed farmers everywhere being forced out of their homes in the middle of the nite some as many as four times by huge swat teams and repeatedly terrorizing their children and families all because they were growing organic milk or produce----this video makes this EPA guy look like the puppet that he is----wish I knew how to get the video from there to here---I will send it to you, Jim----it is really scary and

      halfcord---it is toooooo late and the American ppl don't want to know about Agenda 21----and if you think Romney will not do the exact same things that Obama is doing well you need to keep reading about Agenda 21----Republicans started it when Bush Sr. signed it along with Clinton and the Republicans have shown their involvement for decades if you review the bills they have passed and voted for since the Patriot Act and Nafta---all part of Agenda 21---97 senators voted to pass the NDAA act giving them legal right to do all of this---like I said,it is toooo late---Obama is meeting with China regularly to plan to crash the economy and that will be only the beginning----and if we make it to Romney he will also work for this machine---too many people for too many decades refused to research or learn about Agenda 21 and now it is just too late

      Thanks for the information. The video is an eye-opener, a bit scary to think that people actually talk like this openly. The If I wanted America to Fall video, seems to be the real agenda.

      FP, how do you follow an act like that? All of our comments are just icing on the well crafted cake.

      Common sense kept in front of the eyes of the American people will win the day. A direct focus on the literal hundreds of failures to perform, broken promises and outright lies told by This Regime, especially it's ?leader?, will get our Nation back on the track to success again.

      I can't thank you enough, again, for putting words to so many of the thoughts I fail to express adequately.

      Now we just need to expose Agenda 21 while the iron is hot!

      You just keep telling it like it is, Frog, and maybe, just maybe, the message may get through to uninformed, apathetic citizens who don't understand where our leader(?) is coming from nor what he plans. Scary!

      Why Almendariz would want to "crucify" our oil and gas companies is beyond me. They are the solution to the OPEC price premium, if we would just let them drill.

      And his stuff about hydaulic fracturing is nonsense. I've seen not one study that shows that frakking impacts the water table. It is true that frakking can cause minor (scale 2-3) earth tremors, so it can only be done in areas that are either geologically stable, or far enough away from population centers to be safe. But this water safety issue is pure nonsense - you just perform the fracturing beneath the water table, and there is no risk of contamination.

      Really, all Almendariz is doing is "making up" data to support Obama's ideological, not scientific viewpoint, regarding legacy fuels.

      I love it when these idiots say stuff that is captured on video. What fools. Your hub, on the other hand, is awesome and voted that way.

      Wesman - Thanks. That last video needs plenty of air time during the coming campaign.

      Chris - Even Chicago style politics is beginning to pale as we move toward the conclusion of the Obama administration.

      Thanks for the kudos Roger. I just speak the truth and people can take it or leave it.

      It is the typical Chicago THUG mentality of politics...that is the style of this admin.

      Bully your way through....just like his remarks about our SCOTUS.
