Obama Administration: It’s Ok for “Green Energy” Wind Turbines to Kill or Injure Bald or Golden Eagles without Penalty Because We’re Trying to Save the Environment

THE HYPOCRISY AND DOUBLE STANDARD OF THE LIBERAL ENVIRONMENTALISTS … DEATH PANELS FOR EAGLES.

Obama says OK to KILL Eagles for “Green Energy” … What say you Audubon Society PETA, Sierra Club, Greenpeace, NRDC, Earth First, and “Spotted Owl” Gore?

So not only does Obama pick winners and losers with regard to energy companies, he also picks who can kill and who can’t. The shameful new rule  enacted by Obama’s Interior Department makes it possible for green energy companies to slaughter Bald and Golden eagles without penalty for 30 years. UNREAL. Big Oil harms some water fowl and these people lose their minds and talk about the evils of oil. However, Big Green Wind kills eagles and other birds and that is perfectly acceptable. What a fraud these liberal groups are that claim to protect the Earth and the Eco-system. As long as so-called “green” energy kills the symbol of the United States, that bis perfectly ok, but of coal, oil, gas injures a worm … then that is a national tragedy. This president will do anything to pander to his liberal base and make it all political. I would ask Mr. President, how is this fair to the Eagles?

The Obama administration said Friday it will allow some companies to kill or injure bald and golden eagles for up to 30 years without penalty, an effort to spur development and investment in green energy.

The change, requested by the wind energy industry, will provide legal protection for the lifespan of wind farms and other projects for which companies obtain a permit and make efforts to avoid killing the birds.

An investigation by The Associated Press earlier this year documented the illegal killing of eagles around wind farms, the Obama administration’s reluctance to prosecute such cases and its willingness to help keep the scope of the eagle deaths secret. The White House has championed wind power, a pollution-free energy intended to ease global warming, as a cornerstone of President Barack Obama’s energy plan.

According to the Washington Times, wind energy facilities have killed at least 67 golden and bald eagles in the last five years, but the figure could be much higher, according to a new scientific study by government biologists. Hmm, so why doesn’t Obama and his liberal environmentalists put the same type of restrictions of “killer” wind turbines that they do to the coal, gas and oil industry? How come wind farm companies do not have to build protective cages around the turbines like a common fan has to protect birds from flying into the blades? This administration certainly has no issue with costly expenses when it comes to regulating other forms of energy.

Fan

Just curious, why aren’t wind farm companies regulated to put protective covers over their blades like a common fan?

More from Breitbart.com, It’s okay to kill Eagles because Obama said so.

Wildlife conservationists are livid at the Obama administration’s approval of a new rule that extends wind farms leases up to 30 years. On Friday, wildlife protection groups decried the new regulation as a “stunningly bad move” that gives wind power companies the ability to kill eagles and other birds for the next 30 years.

The Wildlife Society Bulletin approximates that 573,000 birds and 888,000 bats are killed by flying into wind turbines every year. National Audubon Society President David Yarnold expressed his anger over the Obama administration’s new rule: “It’s outrageous that the government is sanctioning the killing of America’s symbol, the bald eagle.”

UPDATE I: The only one who has stepped to the plate is the Audubon Society. Interior Dept. Rule Greenlights Eagle Slaughter at Wind Farms, Says Audubon CEO … New Rule Will Authorize 30-Year Permits for Killing America’s National Bird.

Instead of balancing the need for conservation and renewable energy, Interior wrote the wind industry a blank check. It’s outrageous that the government is sanctioning the killing of America’s symbol, the Bald Eagle. Audubon will continue to look for reasonable, thoughtful partners to wean America off fossil fuels because that should be everyone’s highest priority. We have no choice but to challenge this decision, and all options are on the table.” (Statement from Audubon President and CEO David Yarnold)

UPDATE II: From Right Wing News … All this carnage just to provide a pittance, a miniscule amount of energy. But because it is deemed “green” it is okay to make Eagles blood red.

All to provide miniscule power while putting a blight on the landscape. Average delivered power is roughly 30-40% with very low power density (megawatts per square mile), since you need huge tracks of land/sea for the farm. Compare that to natural gas, which has an average delivered power in the upper 80?s, with an extremely high power density.

The video shows 34 year old Aaron Alexis, now deceased,  walking the halls at the Washington Navy yard as he looks for victims. You can see employees in the distance as Alexis stalks the corridors with a shotgun. There is no indication that he was specifically targeting anyone, however, he can be seen stalking the hallways looking for prey.

Chilling footage of the Navy Yard shooter as he stalked random victims through hallways with a sawed-off shotgun has been released by the FBI today.

There is no indication that Aaron Alexis targeted any specific individuals when he sprayed bullets inside a building, killing 12 people on September 16.

More on the story and pics at The Week.

From The FBI: Law Enforcement Shares Findings of the Investigation into the Washington Navy Yard Shootings .

On the morning of Monday, September 16, 2013, Alexis arrived at the Washington Navy Yard. Alexis had legitimate access to the Navy Yard as a result of his work as a contractor and he utilized a valid pass to gain entry to Building #197. Shortly after his arrival in the building and over the course of approximately one hour, Alexis used the Remington 870 shotgun and a Beretta handgun he obtained during the course of his shooting to kill 12 victims and wound four surviving victims before he was shot and killed by law enforcement officers. Investigation to date has determined that Alexis acted alone.

The following timeline details Alexis’ activity during the morning of September 16, 2013:
?7:53 a.m. – Alexis’ rental car, a blue Toyota Prius with New York plates, entered Parking Garage #28 at the Washington Navy Yard, located directly across from Building #197.
?8:08 a.m. – Alexis exited Parking Garage #28 on foot carrying a backpack. Alexis entered Building #197 and proceeded to the elevator.
?8:09 a.m. – Alexis exited the elevator on the fourth floor and entered the men’s bathroom carrying a backpack and a clipboard.
?8:15 a.m. – Alexis crossed the hallway into the 4 West area of Building #197 with shotgun, but without the backpack or a clipboard.
?8:16 a.m. – Alexis shot the first victim in the 4 West area of Building #197.
?8:17 a.m. – First 911 call is received from the fourth floor of Building #197.
?8:20 a.m. – Alexis left the fourth floor using the stairs and entered the third floor.
?8:28 a.m. – Alexis appeared on the first floor.
?8:57 a.m. – Alexis returned to the third floor.
?9:25 a.m. – Law enforcement shoot and kill Alexis on the third floor.

Both weapons used by Alexis were recovered at the scene and have been submitted to the FBI Laboratory for forensic analysis. The Remington 870 shotgun had been altered with a sawed-off barrel and stock. Purple duct tape covered the end of the stock and handwritten etchings were present on various parts of the shotgun. Etched into the barrel of the shotgun were the words “End to the torment!” Etched into the right side of the shotgun receiver were the words “Not what yall say!” and etched into the left side of the receiver were the phrases “Better off this way!” and “My ELF weapon!” (More)

Al-Shabaab Claims that Three Americans Are Among Gunmen in Kenya Mall Massacre, Death Toll at 68

Americans among the Al-Shabaab terrorist gunman?

Al-Shabaab, an Al-Qaeda affiliated terror group, is claiming that there are three American gunmen among the others Islamists in a standoff at the Westage Mall in Nairobi, Kenya.  The Al-Qaeda affiliate tweeted the following names: Ahmed Mohamed Isse, 22, “native” of St. Paul, MN, Abdifatah Osman Keenadiid, 24, of Minneapolis, and Gen Mustafe Noorudiin, 27, of Kansas City, MO.  The Kenya Mall Massacre has killed at least 68 and wounded over 200 individuals.

More from the PJ Tatler:

The Somali al-Qaeda affiliate tweeted a series of names on its latest account before Twitter against suspended the group. Al-Shabaab has been creating new accounts each time they get shut down but a movement of pro-Kenyan tweeters has been tracking down the new accounts and complaining to Twitter.

“We received permission to disclose the names of our mujahideen inside #Westgate,” their latest account tweeted.

They proceeded to tweet the names one by one, including Ahmed Mohamed Isse, 22, “native” of St. Paul, Minn., Abdifatah Osman Keenadiid, 24, of Minneapolis, and Gen Mustafe Noorudiin, 27, of Kansas City, Mo.

Al-Shabaab recently released a PR video targeted at Somali-Americans in Minnesota, trying to lure them to jihad as more than two dozen have already done so through the state’s “terror pipeline.” Three Americans — Abdisalan Hussein Ali, Farah Mohamed Beledi and Shirwa Ahmed — from Minnesota have been suicide bombers for Al-Shabaab in a series of attacks in Mogadishu over the past few years.

Other gunmen were named as being from locations such as Finland, Canada, the UK., Somalia and Kenya. None of the names were female, even though witnesses reported a white woman among the shooters.

A Minnesota connection to the Somali al-Qaeda affiliate? As stated at Vox Popoli, Al-Shabaab has recently released a PR video targeting Somali-Americans in Minnesota trying to recruit them to the terror group. And the NSA is spying on our phone calls, emails and meta data.

Terrorist Suicide Bomb Kills Christians at Pakistan Church: 60 People Killed & More than 120 Injured Including Women and Children Following Twin Suicide Bomb Blasts in Qissa Khawani Bazaar of Peshawar

Because Islam is a religion of Peace …

So where is the outrage that Christan are being killed in Muslim countries? The LA Times is reporting that a pair of suicide bombers detonated their explosives outside a historic church in northwestern Pakistan on Sunday, killing over 60 people in the deadliest-ever attack on the country’s Christian minority. The NY Times is reporting  75 people are dead as the cowardly suicide bombers detonated their bombs as  as worshipers left the All Saints Church in the old quarter of the regional capital, Peshawar.

The bombing in Peshawar, which wounded 120 people, underlines the threat posed by Islamic extremists as the government seeks a peace deal with domestic Taliban militants. It will likely intensify criticism from those who believe that negotiating peace with militants is a mistake.

The blasts killed more than 60 people and wounded 120, said Arshad Javed, top health official at the hospital in Peshawar where the victims were being treated. The dead included several women and children, said Sher Ali Khan, another doctor at the hospital.

The number of casualties was so high that the hospital was running out of caskets for the dead and beds for the wounded, said Mian Iftikhar Hussain, a former information minister of surrounding Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province who was on the scene.

“What have we done wrong to these people’” asked one of the wounded, John Tariq, referring to the attackers. “Why are we being killed?”

The News – International:

PESHAWAR: At least 60 people were killed and more than 120 including women and children were injured in twin suicide blasts in Qissa Khawani bazaar of Peshawar, Geo News reported.

Sources said suicide bombers blew themselves up outside Kohati gate near the Pakistan Church.

Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) have cordoned off the area after the blast.

Chief Executive Leady Reading Hospital (LRH) has confirmed killing of 56 people in the blasts.

Emergency has been declared in the LRH.

The eyewitnesses said the worshipers were leaving the Church when the blast occurred. More than 500 people were present in the Church at the time of suicide attack.

20 Dead as Gunman Attack Nairobi Shopping Mall in Kenya (Update: Attackers were Targeting non-Muslims) (Update: Authorities Calling Possible Terror Attack) (Update: 59 Dead, Likely to Rise, Islamists Have Hostages)

CNN is reporting that dozens are injured and at least 20 are dead as gunman opened fire in a Nairobi mall in Kenya. The attack took place at an upscale Westgate Mall. In is unknown at this time just how many people have been injured or killed and the background of the gunman. A witness said that gunmen armed with AK-47s and grenades.

Gunmen attacked an upscale shopping mall in the Kenyan capital on Saturday, leading to a fierce gunbattle with police and leaving dozens of casualties.

The Kenyan Red Cross reported 20 dead, though a government official, Joseph Ole Lenku, only confirmed 11.

Fifty more people were wounded in the attack at the mall in Nairobi, said Abbas Gullet, head of the Kenyan Red Cross.

A security agent told CNN’s Lillian Leposo at the scene that the violence was a terrorist attack, but officials had yet to confirm that information, Leposo told CNN.

“They have strong reason that these men are terrorists,” Leposo said.

UPDATE I: From AP via the Jawa Report … it would appear that CNN left out this little important fact that the gunman were solely attacking non-Muslims. So they were only attacking non-Muslims, eh? Let’s go out on a limb and call this an act of terror and not workplace violence.

The gunmen announced that non-Muslims would be targeted, said Elijah Kamau, who was at the mall at the time of the midday attack.

“The gunmen told Muslims to stand up and leave. They were safe, and non-Muslims would be targeted,” he said.

UPDATE II: ABC News is reporting that 22 are dead and the attackers were targeting non-Muslims. The authorities are treating it as a terrorist attack.

Gunmen threw grenades and opened fire Saturday killing at least 22 people in an attack targeting non-Muslims at an upscale mall in Kenya’s capital that was hosting a children’s day event, a Red Cross official and witnesses said.

The attackers remained inside and firing subsided as military surrounded the mall hours after the attack. People continued to trickle out from hiding places within the Westgate mall, which is frequented by expatriates and rich Kenyans in Nairobi’s affluent Westlands neighborhood.

Kenya Red Cross official Abbas Gullet said at least 22 people were killed in the attack that police blamed on terrorists. He said the death toll would likely rise.

“We are treating this as a terrorist attack,” said police chief Benson Kibue, adding that there are likely no more than 10 attackers involved.

UPDATE III: The BBC is reporting that police first thought it was a robbery; however, is now classifying it as terrorism.

A senior police officer originally said it was an attempted robbery but later called it a possible terrorist attack.

The Somali militant group al-Shabab had threatened to strike the centre.

It is opposed to Kenya sending troops to fight in Somalia. No group has said it carried out Saturday’s attack.

UPDATE IV: Islamist gunmen holed up with hostages in Nairobi siege, 59 dead.

Islamist militants were holed up with hostages on Sunday at a shopping mall in Nairobi, where at least 59 people have been killed in an attack by the al Shabaab group that opposes Kenya’s participation in a peacekeeping mission in neighboring Somalia.

Washington Navy Yard Gunman Aaron Alexis was Treated for Serious Mental Health Issues … He Had Been Hearing Voices in his Head

How many red flags were needed to have the Washington Navy Yard gunman’s security clearance taken away?

Now the AP is reporting that Aaron Alexis was being treated for serious mental illness. The man who would yesterday murder 12 individuals and wounded countless others was hearing voices in his head. All this and still no one thought that this guy was a risk to himself and others. Because some how being previously arrested for shooting a bullet into your neighbors home is not grounds to not get a security clearance when employed with a government contractor.

The more reports that come out about Aaron Alexis, the more we learn that yesterday’s massacre could have been completely avoided.

Aaron Alexis

U.S. law enforcement officials are telling The Associated Press that the Navy contractor identified as the gunman in the mass shootings at the Washington Navy Yard had been suffering a host of serious mental issues, including paranoia and a sleep disorder. He also had been hearing voices in his head, the officials said.

Aaron Alexis, 34, had been treated since August by the Veterans Administration for his mental problems …

Seriously, how did this guy have any clearance what so ever? The NSA can tape everything we do but some how a guy like this slips through the cracks?
