Interior proposal would block oil shale
development on federal lands in West

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Zack Colman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/9/2012 4:39:02 PM

The Interior Department on Friday issued a final plan to close 1.6 million acres of federal land in the West originally slated for oil shale development. The proposed plan would fence off a majority of the initial blueprint laid out in the final days of the George W. Bush administration. It faces a 30-day protest period and a 60-day process to ensure it is consistent with local and state policies. After that, the department would render a decision for implementation. The move is sure to rankle Republicans, who say President Obama’s grip on fossil fuel drilling in federal lands is too tight.

Comments:
The regime sure isn't waiting to fullfill their deeds of destruction. If this is how they are behaving immediately I shudder to think what we will look like in four years. I may feel worse today than Tuesday. The move is sure to rankle Republicans?? That's an understatement.

The Hill sees everything as a political football. The people most upset will be the countless workers who will either lose their jobs or lose any opportunity for one.

The commies have a whole slate of things they have been working on in secret for the past 4 years. That is why it looked like Obama did nothing at all his first term. But in truth the whole group has been planning, coordinating, and setting all this stuff up so they can implement everything at once (overwhelm the opposition) after the election--which they made sure they won. They stole the election. I even think there were moles in Romney's camp that helped them. I wish I were qualified to run the RNC and had influence among all the elected GOP. I know what the left has been up to, what they do, and I know what we need to do. But we don't have smart enough problem solvers on our side. I could do it. That is one thing I know. It is so frustrating...

But Obama said he was a "all of the above" kind of a guy when it came to energy. Or was that just said to get himself re-elected?

I'm trying hard to stay positive and look down the road 4 years, but as each hour goes by, this administration just gets worse and worse. It is just as I knew it would be---he has nothing to fear now, no re-elect to face, so he will be insufferably Marxist and drive this nation into oblivion. I weep for my kids.

So begins the required legal farce. First, propose, then review the objections, then revise, then adopt.

They will end up doing what they please anyway.

The ritual allows influential Obama supporters time to secure exemptions for their own interests. And for attorneys to shake more money out of frightened oil companies.

First, there ought not to be any federal land outside of Washington, DC. But as indicated by #17, "The oil will still be there when the Dems go out of power." That's why in previous decades I've never minded using up most of the Saudi oil; however, with our economy needing the benefits of more robust domestic drilling, it's time to start focusing on bringing our oil business home. If we can keep this administration from excessively regulating development on private property, we can wait four more years to start tapping resources on federal land.

#3. Obama is an "all of the above" guy. He wants to shut down ALL energy production.

This is just the beginning. He will work his way through not only all federal lands, but through state, local, and private reserves as well. It will probably be mostly the EPA, but there will no doubt be other regulatory agencies he will use for the dictatorial task of shutting down domestic energy production.

Now that the election's over the Executive branch can stop touting how the U.S. is becoming the world's largest oil producer because of their work, and resume their all-out effort to destroy the oil and coal industries in the U.S.

I have here in my hand a list of six people who think Darrell Issa is a fellow traveler of Joseph McCarthy.

Among the half-dozen Democrats who made the comparison: “What we’re about today brings us right back to the McCarthy era,” Rep. Gerald Connolly (D-Va.) said. Rep.

The Justice Department says a 29-foot war memorial cross on a San Diego mountain is not an unconstitutional promotion of Christianity and should remain on federal property. The Obama administration said an appeals court ruling declaring the cross on Mount Soledad a violation of the constitutional separation of church and state undermined an act of Congress and conflicted with recent Supreme Court decisions. But, in a filing Monday to the nation´s highest court, it said an appeal should first be considered by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals because there is no imminent risk that the cross is removed.

A new report by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service finds that solar facilities in California are acting like “mega traps” that kill and injure birds. As a result, “entire food chains” are being disrupted. USFWS’s National Fish and Wildlife Forensics Laboratory studied three solar farms in Southern California: Desert Sunlight, Genesis Solar and Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System (ISEGS). Two-hundred and thirty-three different birds from 71 species were found over the course of a two-year study. The three main causes of death were: 1. Solar flux: Exposure to temperatures over 800 degrees F. 2. Impact (or blunt force) trauma:

President Obama on Friday formally nominated Sylvia Mathews Burwell to head the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) following the botched resignation of Kathleen Sebelius. Burwell served in several positions under the Bill Clinton administration, including as a deputy aide to then-budget director Jack Lew. In July 1995, Burwell (then Sylvia Mathews) was one of several key aides questioned by the Senate Whitewater Committee regarding the death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster. Foster’s death was officially ruled a suicide. The Clinton White House eventually admitted to misleading investigators

Climate change is one of the issues at the top of President Barack Obama’s agenda, and now it’s getting big budget treatment in Hollywood, at least by documentary standards. A nine-part series called “Years of Living Dangerously” will debut this Sunday evening on Showtime–emphasizing stories “from the front lines” of climate change impact. The first episode, now available online, stars actors Harrison Ford and Don Cheadle, two of the series’ correspondents. “It’s the biggest story out there,” said James Cameron, an executive producer of the series, in an interview.

Sucking carbon dioxide out of the air might be used as a last-ditch attempt to stop global warming, UN scientists say. The technology is proposed as a ‘Plan B’ if Governments fail to cut carbon dioxide emissions by up to 70 per cent before 2050. Reducing greenhouse gases to manageable levels will cost up to four per cent of global GDP by 2030, according to a draft version of a report to be published in Berlin on Sunday by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev.

Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it.
