Obama Says No to Oil Leases,
But Yes to Windmills, Off
the Atlantic Coast

Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/3/2012 10:31:18 AM

President Obama´s plan for the Outer Continental Shelf does not include any new oil and gas leases in the Atlantic Ocean over the next five years, but it does include windmills. The Interior Department wants to lease nearly 278,000 acres off the coasts of Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Virginia for wind energy. The lease sales, to be held next year, will be the first-ever competitive sales on the Outer Continental Shelf for wind energy, and the Interior Department describes the lease sales as "major milestones" in its wind energy program. "Wind energy along the Atlantic holds enormous potential,

I really don´t know how to survive the next four years. It just makes me want to weep tears of anger and frustration.

Barack Hussein Obama is a madman.
I demand to see the results of his yearly medical examination. This is not the Kennedy era where the press can hide severe medical conditions and drugs that are/may be diminishing his ability to think and reason. His behavior is not normal by any stretch of the imagination. Too bad we no longer have reporters interested in truth or America.

We in Massachusetts have been fighting a wind farm in magnificent Nantucket Sound for 10 years. Environmentalist should be up in arms about the devastating damage which will be done to the ocean floor and sea life. Then this horrible man issues an order without bothering to educate himself. What else is new. I despise him. He is despicable.

Now that windmills have significantly reduced the golden eagle population of California, it´s time to start mowing down unsuspecting eastern seabirds.

Not sure how the wind farms would ever get built - the tax subsidy ends this year and that only leaves state-by-state mandates to force the construction of those Rube-Goldberg contraptions.

FTA: ´´we are moving forward at the same time with efforts to ensure that America continues to lead the world at developing the energy of the future´´
Note that we abandoned large-scale use of wind mills (aka ´the energy of the future´) several hundred years ago - during the period of time we now call the ´Industrial Revolution´. Just goes to show that greens are in actuality ´Luddites´ at heart.

Doesn´t the east coast currently have some of the highest energy rates already? What would happen to rates if this goes through? Won´t "their rates neccessarily skyrocket?"

An absolute waste of time and money. Some of the very first "wind farms" are now abandoned (Hawaii and Great Britain) since they proved worthless when it came to producing the energy needed.

Its time for Obama to study the real facts and get away from this wind energy fiasco.

"Ten to 27 miles offshore..." So, what is the line loss for electrical transmissions of 25 miles through an underwater cable? Perhaps instead they will store it in these brand new batteries they are subsidizing research on and bring all of that power ashore in them? In electric Volt Boats?

It´s not California Eagles, and migrating birds to Biden´s Delaware which are being killed by these things.

Birds in the Central US flyway are being killed also .......... at the same time that we are paying to try and revive the Hooping Crane population with other ´parent´ crane populations.

Leftist bird loving conservationists refuse to face the dangers to these Windmills ............ let alone the exorbitant costs of this failed but PC technology.

NOTE
Windmills are being cut back in UK and Spain ....... You Idiots!

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
