Justice Dept. AG Lynch Testifies Has ‘Discussed’ Civil Legal Action Against Climate Change Deniers … But AG Lynch Indicates DOJ Not Required to Charge Hillary Clinton
IMAGINE THAT … OBAMA’S AG LOOKING TO TAKE LEGAL ACTION AGAINST CLIMATE CHANGE DENIERS BUT MUMS THE WORD ON HILLARY CLINTON.
See what happens when you on Obama’s enemies list and when you are not.
The Blaze reports that Attorney General Loretta Lynch testified Wednesday that the Justice Department has “discussed” taking civil legal action against the fossil fuel industry for “denying” the “threat of carbon emissions” when it comes to climate change.
During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) said that he believes there are similarities between the tobacco industry denying scientific studies and climate change deniers. Really, is this how ignorant the debate has become with the climate change charletons that they are comparing tobacco dangers to fossil fuels and climate change? Are you kidding? Wait a minute, which one is the scheme? Sorry, it is far from settled science that climate change is man made and anything could be done to change climate change. Note to climate change wackos, its the sun stupid. The climate has been changing since the birth of the planet, with or without man. Imagine that?

Contract that tough talk with AG Lynch’s position as to the possibility of indicting Hillary Clinton for her private server/email crimes and risking US national security. If you are a Democrat criminal and the FBI recommends charges against you, then AG Lynch says that the DOJ is not required to prosecute you. Attorney General Lynch indicates DOJ not required to charge Hillary Clinton if the FBI recommends charges. Imagine that.
The Department of Justice would not be required to have to prosecute Hillary Clinton even if the FBI were to recommend charges be filed against her for the use of a private email server when she was secretary of state, Attorney General Loretta Lynch has indicated.
The Washington Examiner reports that the nation’s top law enforcer — answering a question from Sen. John Cornyn, a Texas Republican, as to whether her agency would be “required” to pursue criminal charges against Clinton — responded:
“It would not be an operation of law, it would be an operation of procedures,” Lynch said.
As well, according to Lynch, a decision to pursue a criminal case would be “done in conjunction with the agents” involved in the probe, and would “not something that we would want to cut them out of the process.”
BIG BLOW TO BARACK OBAMA’S CLIMATE CHANGE INITIATIVE …
In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court abruptly halted President Obama’s controversial new power plant regulations that is part of his global warming climate change initiative. 27 states and industry opponents that call the regulations “an unprecedented power grab” and that the regulations would greatly increase energy costs and put some of their industries out of business. Appellate arguments are set to begin June 2, 2016. Thankfully, the SCOTUS put a hold on anything going forward as Powerline opines, “Obama’s EPA was betting that the slow legal process would mean that they’d have a lot of things in place, and many utilities would have complied with the EPA’s dictates, before the law was settled at the Supreme Court.”
A divided Supreme Court on Tuesday abruptly halted President Obama’s controversial new power plant regulations, dealing a blow to the administration’s sweeping plan to address global warming.
In a 5-4 decision, the court halted enforcement of the plan until after legal challenges are resolved.
The surprising move is a victory for the coalition of 27 mostly Republican-led states and industry opponents that call the regulations “an unprecedented power grab.”
By temporarily freezing the rule the high court’s order signals that opponents have made a strong argument against the plan. A federal appeals court last month refused to put it on hold.
The court’s four liberal justices said they would have denied the request.
The plan aims to stave off the worst predicted impacts of climate change by reducing carbon dioxide emissions at existing power plants by about one-third by 2030.
“We disagree with the Supreme Court’s decision to stay the Clean Power Plan while litigation proceeds,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said in a statement.Earnest said the administration’s plan is based on a strong legal and technical foundation, and gives the states time to develop cost-effective plans to reduce emissions. He also said the administration will continue to “take aggressive steps to make forward progress to reduce carbon emissions.”
ITS TOO BAD THIS COMMANDER IN CHIEF DID NOT TAKE TERRORISM AS SERIOUS …
The Washington Times is reporting that the Pentagon is ordering its top commanders to incorporate climate change into virtually everything they do, from testing weapons to training troops to war planning to joint exercises with allies. Guess who they get their directive from? The directive, “Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience,” is in line with President Obama’s view that global warming is the country’s foremost national security threat. This fool cannot be replaced soon enough before he does any more damage to this country. Let’s hope it is not permanent.
Oh yes Mr. President, ISIS is the JV, but global warming is the United States greatest national security threat. Lord help us.
The Pentagon is ordering the top brass to incorporate climate change into virtually everything they do, from testing weapons to training troops to war planning to joint exercises with allies.
A new directive’s theme: The U.S. Armed Forces must show “resilience” and beat back the threat based on “actionable science.”
To four-star generals and admirals, among them the regional combatant commanders who plan and fight the nation’s wars, the directive tells them: “Incorporate climate change impacts into plans and operations and integrate DoD guidance and analysis in Combatant Command planning to address climate change-related risks and opportunities across the full range of military operations, including steady-state campaign planning and operations and contingency planning.”
- #1 – don’t drink the water in Flint Michigan #2 – How doee global warming figure into the blizzard on the east coast this weekend?
HMM, GORE’S NORTH POLE ICE FREE IN 5 YEARS … MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH.
As Barack Obama tries to cram his global warming agenda nonsense down our throats, Remember in 2008 when Al Gore predicted that the North Pole would be ice free within 5 years? How is that working for the North Polar Ice Cap these days? Last time I checked it was still there and growing. Gore made the prediction to a German audience in 2008. He told them that “the entire North ‘polarized’ cap will disappear in 5 years.”
The below VIDEO was more of the Goracle spewing his BS from 20019 … Here is a bit of an inconvenient truth for Al Gore … ITS STILL THERE!!!
All these lies of so-called settled science by those global warming extremists with an agenda and they are still pushing this man made global warming nonsense even after the Goracles predictions have been embarrassing disproved.
