Barack Obama EPA Official Compares Agency Enforcement to Roman Crucifixions … We’re “Crucifying” Oil And Gas Companies

 

Obama’s hope & change … CRUCIFIXION.

If any one ever wanted to really know how Barack Obama feels about oi and gas companies, they need to look no further than the CNS News report where Obama’s EPA official Al Armendariz, admitted that EPA’s “general philosophy” is to “crucify” and “make examples” of oil and gas companies.

In the video, Administrator Armendariz says:

“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:

“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.

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

Sen. James Inhofe (OK-R) stated on the US Senate floor that Armendariz’s words offer a “rare glimpse” into the Obama administration’s mindset on how they wish to deal with oil and gas companies.

Oklahoma Republican Sen. James Inhofe took to the Senate floor Wednesday to announce an investigation into the Environmental Protection Agency’s “crucify them” enforcement strategy to keep oil and gas producers in line.

Inhofe said Armendariz’s words offer a “rare glimpse” into the Obama administration’s mindset, and pointed to examples of the EPA allegedly employing the strategy against natural gas producers in Parker County, Texas, Pavilion, Wyoming, and Dimock, Pennsylvania.

The Gateway Pundit is correct, Let’s face it. These people are out to destroy America.

      So many of the appointments in this Administration
      are of incompetent useful idiots that wield incredible
      power. This gentleman and his ‘duly impressed staff’
      appear to be getting a ‘high’ by throwing their monkey
      wrenches into the productive gears of this Country.
      I suspect a ‘Power High’ is much more addicting than
      any street drug.

      Senator inhofe needs to find a few co-sponsors and introduce a bill to immediately shut down the EPA.

      Someone in the House of Represenatives should do the same.

      This is proof positive, that some in the federal government do not believe in freedom and will do whatever it takes to destroy it.

      Parker county Texas is located West of Tarrant county (Ft. Worth). In the last five years this has been a hot area of drilling for natural gas. Today there are few rigs working and now we know why.

      I sent a email protesting there crucifixtion comments on Friday
      To my surprise today ( saterday ) I was awoken by 2 EPA agents who then interviewed me at the centerville police department. The agents told me before I sat down that I had done nothing wrong ! ( hm then why am I here ) after that they began to question me and twisted my words to make it sound like threat, I corrected them many times. They then said there new director is an X-CIA agent who wanted me to sign a medical release form ( also stating it was my choice to sign) after they figured out that they could not twist my words they then set me free, only after taking 1.5 hours of questioning and making me explain all the aspects of my email. The whole time one agent kept picking out words to try and say I threatened the U.S. government and there agents.
