Obama fuel standards so
bad even Axios thinks they
should be dumped

American Thinker, by Monica Showalter

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 4/16/2018 9:41:59 AM

President Obama was always big on forcing bad things down the throat of the American voter and consumer. ´Time to eat your peas!´ he told Congress in 2011, foisting a massive hike in government spending on a Republican Congress in 2011. Obama was ´the good parent´ (to all us unruly, uppity young ´uns in the lowly electorate) and President Trump is all about eating candy, as Michelle Obama put it this year, in another example. And of course, there was Obamacare. One of the worst things Obama tried to foist on us, was in his executive orders to raise fuel standards on

Trump is the (almost) perfect replacement for Obama. A mild republican president would only fool around on the edges of Obama´s lousy programs. Just about all the activities of the last 8 years need to be sh!t canned. Trump is doing it.

The ridiculous Obama fuel standards were to be used as a negotiating tool, to force auto makers into a position of accepting the real objectives of the administration.

Fines, sanctions, and ultimately ruin of the automakers would make them kowtow to the administration, which would then ´´review´´ and adjust the standards to more ´´reasonable´´ levels. What were the real objectives of the Obama administration? The same things that cause corruption in all of politics...

The fuel standard that really needs to be revoked is The Compassionate Conservative´s legacy ethanol mandate. This massive corporate welfare program benefits Archer Daniels Midland and others, but sharply reduces fuel economy, increases smog levels, reduces engine life, makes engines run hotter, results in excess fertilizer runoffs into our waterways, consumes water, etc. Deleting this program would be a huge boon environmentally and economically, and yet The Donald for reasons unknown supports it.

Forcing us into cars averaging over 50 mpg was guaranteed to be expensive, and the cars would be more complex, and smaller. Already moving towards trying to get their cars up to this average gas mileage, more 2018 cars have turbochargers on the engines. This makes more HP from a smaller engine, helping the gas mileage at greater initial cost, a short durability turbocharger and much more complexity under the hood. How many people will be happy when their car needs new $1385 turbo (actual price for 2018 Accord), plus probably $500 installation labor, far sooner than modern engines need an overhaul?

Will the improved fuel economy EVER make economic sense when we are forced into buying more expensive engine systems and replacing them more often at very high costs?

"Nobody could make them buy a car they didn´t like."

But BO had a plan for that as well. Punish consumers by making gas ultra expensive. $10/gal. Of course they denied that unpopular intent publicly but then squeezed oil supplies by denying offshore drilling and pipeline expansions.

But the market undermined BO. Fracking unloaded a glut of oil from private lands that BO had no control over. Gas prices plummeted and shored up an economy rocked by BO´s other idiotic policies.

Dems never question the sanity of their policies, just try to figure out how to enforce them better the next time. They never accept that central planning is a failed ideology that destroys economies and countries. We should pack up all the central planners and send them on a year sabbatical to Venezuela to learn how to do central planning right.

Yeah? And??
Again, and for the umpteenth time: this abomination was pepetrated by
a) the diktats of the Federal EPA, an agency that, per the Constitution, should not even exist!. But it does, "courtesy" of the statist nitwit, Dick Nixon, a Republicrat you may remember. And Not One Single Republicrat in the last 40+ years has seriously moved to ABOLISH it. Obama used the weapons that the GOP-e types made available, and that the next Dumbocrap President will also use.
b) the EPA (spit, spit) used the unconstitutional methodology of "agency law", issuing regulations having force of law, using the Administrative Procedures Act. Where is the move in the Congress to REPEAL it, and to retroactively trash all the regs that Ovomit and is like preceding him have foisted off on the nation?

I don´t believe here in Italy, mileage is mandated and I don´t think it should be. Lemme tell you what having a car that gets more than 70 mpg is like. It´s great. It´s a small four door hatch made by Suzuki with a Fiat 1.3 litre diesel 4 cylinder engine with a 5 speed. Lots of torque and it cruises all day at 75 mph with ease. The model is Ignis and it´s about 10 years old. Repair wise all it has needed has been a set of glow plugs, an alternator, water pump and a clutch. A sepentine belt every few years and that´s been it. I´m at about 135K miles right now

The not so good is that diesel fuel is about 6 bucks a gallon and the tank is smallish but I go about 750km on a fill up. They aren´t so bad these smaller cars that get fantastic mileage.

With all the treason-shrieking and media howls about supposed Russian interference in the 2016 election, it was refreshing to hear Fox News host Tucker Carlson pour some cold water onto this fever swamp. Here was Carlson, last night: Carlson brings some needed perspective to what goes on in international affairs: Nations don’t have friends, or even enemies; just interests. There was a famous quote from 19th century U.K. Prime Minister Lord Palmerston that phrased it well: “England has no eternal friends, England has no perpetual enemies, England has only eternal and perpetual interests.” By contrast, America is the home of one

HILO, Hawaii -- A volcanic explosion sent a lava bomb crashing through the roof of a tour boat off Hawaii´s Big Island, injuring 23 people, officials said. According to the Hawaii County Fire Department, the incident occurred early Monday morning. A lava bomb flew through the air and punctured the roof of the boat, leaving a large gaping hole in the vessel and damaging one of the boat´s railings. They were aboard a tour boat that takes visitors to see lava plunging into the ocean from a volcano that has been erupting for two months. The boat managed to return to Wailoa Harbor in

American politics have borrowed a lot of ideas from sports. Nowadays, everyone has become familiar with certain phrases that we use in everyday life, often without even thinking about their origins. For example, the phrase "pull no punches" originated in boxing, and the proverbial "drop the ball” came from football. The well-known rule of "three strikes and you´re out" came from baseball. The latter is the best way to characterize President Trump´s attitude toward Vladimir Putin. It seems that leftists in America still cannot forgive Putin for the destruction of the ideals that were nurtured in the West by the Soviet

America has a nobility problem,

Our Constitution forbids the creation of “titles of nobility.” The Framers thought it was important enough that the prohibition appears twice, once forbidding the federal government from doing it, and elsewhere extending the ban to the states. And Americans, to the extent that they give the question any thought at all, probably think that the ban works: After all, nobody’s squiring about the United States, sporting titles like Duke of Pennsylvania or Earl of Internal Revenue. But now I’m wondering if we don’t have a problem. First, Charles C.W. Cooke, a Brit who just recently became an American citizen, noted the practice

Long-simmering ethnic tensions in a party increasingly defined by identity politics could erupt if Nancy Pelosi’s mental decline forces her to bow out of her leadership of the Democrats’ House Caucus. With African-Americans the largest loyal base constituency, the fact that there has never been a black minority leader, much less speaker, the choice of her successor could split the party. Potentially at stake is the Speakership that could result if the longed-for Blue Wave produces a Democrat House majority. Kyle Olsen of The American Mirror red flags Pelosi’s latest lapse into incoherence at a podium. Speaking to reporters Thursday, Pelosi suffered

So Donald Trump went to a NATO summit, insulted our allies, then made the absurd demand not just that they increase defense spending — which they should — but that they raise it to 4 percent of G.D.P., much higher than the bloated military spending in his own budget. He then claimed, falsely, to have won major concessions, and graciously declared that it is “presently unnecessary” to consider quitting the alliance. Was there anything our allies could have done that would have mollified him? The answer, surely, is no. For Trump, disrupting NATO doesn’t seem to be a means to an

Corporate Correctness: Starbucks won raves from environmentalists for its ban on straws. But while a strawless Starbucks won´t do anything to help the environment, it will discriminate against the disabled. Virtue signaling can be a tricky business. Under pressure from environmentalists, the coffee giant says that it will replace plastic straws with sippy-cup style lids at all of its stores by 2020.

Hawaii County Fire Department Battalion Chief Jesse Michael Ebersole pleaded guilty in federal court this afternoon to conspiring with deputy prosecutor Katherine Kealoha to lie about their affair to a federal grand jury and has agreed to cooperate in the prosecution of Kealoha and her husband, retired Honolulu Police Chief Louis Kealoha. Ebersole, 49, faces a maximum five-year prison term for conspiracy. Because federal prosecutors are relying on his cooperation to prosecute the Kealohas, Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric Beste asked U.S. District Chief Judge J.

Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the new darling of the Democratic party. In a recent interview, however, the upstart politico running in a hyper-liberal district in New York did not show command of the issues. Ocasio-Cortez was being interviewed by Margaret Hoover on the PBS show ‘Firing Line.’ Hoover asked very basic, softball questions of the young congressional candidate. In explaining her positions on the economy, Hoover asked Ocasio-Cortez “Do you think that capitalism has failed to deliver for working class Americans?” Hoover cited a currently booming US economy and low unemployment.

Was Russia´s effort to interfere in the 2016 election the most important issue on the table at President Trump´s Helsinki summit with Vladimir Putin? No. But it´s not an unimportant issue, either, and Trump knew the American press is obsessed with it. So he knew it would play a big role in the Trump-Putin post-summit news conference. There are all sorts of aspects to the Trump-Russia affair, but in light of special counsel Robert Mueller´s decision to indict 12 Russian intelligence agents on the Friday before the Monday summit, the president also knew reporters would want to hear him specifically affirm
