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.

Obama’s EPA Says Jobs Do Not Matter … So Much for Obama’s Executive Order

Is it any wonder why the Obama Administration cannot reduce unemployment …

So much for President Barack Obama making his the rest of his term in office about jobs. Barack Obama and members of his administration have continually pandered to the American people stating that job creation was their top priority. Really? Wasn’t it during the 2011 SOTU speech that Obama said , At stake is whether new jobs and industries take root in this country, or somewhere else”.

Now it’s our turn. We know what it takes to compete for the jobs and industries of our time. We need to out-innovate, out-educate, and out-build the rest of the world. We have to make America the best place on Earth to do business. We need to take responsibility for our deficit, and reform our government. That’s how our people will prosper. That’s how we’ll win the future. And tonight, I’d like to talk about how we get there.

It would appear that Obama’s EPA was not privy to the memo. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Mathy Stanislaus testified this week before an Environment and Energy subcommittee hearing that “his agency does not take jobs into account when it issues new regulations”.

Watch the EPA official stammer over his answers to simple questions from Freshman US Rep. Cory Gardner. When one tries to answer a simple question and creates a ‘Who’s on first” comedy routine, you know we have a problem. As stated by Hot Air, Gardner did a great job of holding EPA Deputy Administrator Mathy Stanislaus’ feet to the fire, “He’s off to a great start”.
