EPA increases biofuel
mandate despite court order

Washington Examiner, by Joel Gehrke

Just one week after a federal court rebuked the Environmental Protection Agency for mandating biofuel standards based on “wishful thinking,” the EPA responded by raising those standards to even more unattainable levels. The EPA called for refiners and importers to mix 14 million gallons of cellulosic biofuels (ethanol) into fuel in 2013. “EPA calculates a percentage-based standard for the following year,” the agency explained in an announcement today. “Based on the standard, each refiner and importer determines the minimum volume of renewable fuel that it must ensure is used in its transportation fuel.”

Where is anyone who can stop this outrageous, lawless behavior?? Hello congress, are you there?? It looks like this is going to be the norm from this tyrannical regime unless something is done. It´s just infuriating.

Why is it so difficult to simply cut their funding?

Cut their funding? That would require courage and integrity. The Republican Party lacks courage, integrity, and, worse of all, it lacks a belief. It believes in nothing other than reelection.

It´s time, it´s really time for conservatives and libertarians to abandon the Republican Party and go elsewhere.

Just say NO!

What does it matter?

Let the EPA try to sue them based on nothing, and have the refiners simply bring a harrassment lawsuit back at the EPA.

Arrest every last EPA decision maker for contempt of court, and schedule their hearing for sometime mid next year.

The EPA uses law fare on corporate America.
Companies must comply or face expensive lawsuits,
Alternatively, they write regs so their environmental nazi non profits can sue corporations nd make money on settlements.
The consumer pays in both cases.
Defund the ep,completely nd send the fascists home.

This is the type of agency that the 1990´s conservative republicans vowed to shut down - - if they ever controlled both the presidency and congress.

And bingo! A few years later - - they did!

Unfortunately their president was a leftist RINO named Bush - - and their congressional leaders were corrupt self-servers named Lott and DeLay.

They not only didn´t follow through on the Reagan Revolution - - they actually betrayed it. The period from 2000-2008 was the biggest blown opportunity in this nation´s history.

And now - - and now we´re governed by communists. I cry for my beloved country. Often.

Study by the American Petroleum Institute says E15 (the next mandated blend) is poison to engines. Their studies conclude that there is danger to autos and lives due to mechanical failures caused by a 15% ethanol blend. But we´ll know the science doesn´t matter, only what the king and his minions want. The people be damned.

Is it too much to ask that the federal judge who made the decision rebuking the EPA simply issue a contempt citation against the person(s)ignoring the decision an order them jailed?

#9 - You said it all.

We HAD our chance, and blew it. We decided to run the government like a business instead of running it out of business.

Boehner needs to realize that his job is not to compromise, but to obstruct. He is the fine line between us a tyranny, and we must resist at all costs.

Stop worrying about MSNBC and Obama´s bullying. Send one spending bill per agency to the Senate, and make sure that all of the sacred cows like first responders and Social Security are funded. Then drop the hammer.

Zero funding for the Depts of Energy, Education and the NLRB. If Obama wants to fight, go right ahead and fight...the American people are left unharmed. Phase out the Dept of Transportation, and force the merger of the FDA and Dept of Agriculture (and require a 30% reduction in staff as a net result).

Boehner needs to learn how to set a trap and follow it through. I am highly skeptical that he knows how to, but he needs to realize that no one else is coming to save us.

Great, a new plague of "solyndras" coming our way. Grants and "free obama money" loans to start up companies (not) making products to solve problems that do not exist with a streamlined system to pay the obama bribe (obama´s new organizing for America).

Pucker factor nine.

This probably doesn´t even have anything to do with cleaner air or any other climate crap. Ethanol production has become a mega industry in this country which is costing taxpayers billions more a year in subsidies.

At the same time the left continues to push for higher death tax rates,hitting small farmers the hardest. When faced with with the un-payable tax,they sell their farms to big ag which then flips the farm to corn production for more government handouts.

Monopolizing food production is just another left wing goal and they´re using obseity as a wedge to get their foot in the door.

This just proves that the EPA is looking for fines to be paid. How about the fact that an increase in ethenol in gasoline causes engine failure on a massive scale. Is this an attempt to get citizens to ship their current cars, lawnmowers, chain saws, etc. to the scrap yard and buy those self-suicide electric thing-a-ma-jigs?

So instead of fining the fuel companies for not using a formulation that doesn´t exist, they´re going to find the biofuel companies for not producing the formulation in the first place? What´s the scope of this obligation to produce that formulation in the first place? If we can fine a company for not producing a product, can we fine all of them? For none of them is producing that product.

I´ve been calling Ø "Barack Antiochus Obama" over his HHS mandate violating the Catholic Church´s religious freedom. From now on, I think he should be called "Pharoah-bama"...

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

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

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

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
