EPA Chief Says Obama Vows To Bypass Congress And Enact Global Warming Policies By Edict

Imperial Obama

Is someone in Congress going to stop our imperial president? Are there members of Congress who are taking into account Fast and Furious, Benghazi and whoever the hell gave the order to the IRS to target conservative groups? And if those cases of obstruction of justice aren't enough to give serious consideration of impeachment to the kingly acting Commander-in-Chief, then how about Obama's flat out admitting that if Congress doesn't act on global warming (which is now called climate change because we are entering a period of global cooling), he will act himself without their approval.

Obama actions are also being heralded by EPA Chief Gina McCarthy who said the president, "wasn’t going to wait for Congress" to act on legislation to start dealing with climate change.

For being a supposed constitutional scholar, or constitutional lawyer, or constitutional good fairy or whatever the powers that be dream up for this wanna be dictator, Barack Obama seems to not quite understand the separation of powers and why we have 3, count them 3, branches of government. No, the president of the United States cannot make law by decree, Congress must actually legislate the laws and Obama has the power to pass or veto such legislation.

Of course, if somehow the head of the EPA is granted power to make whatever rules and regulations they see fit to protect the environment, all that separation of power kind of goes out the window and Comrade Obama just tells the EPA Chief to jump and they respond, "how high sir?" Obviously this is where Congress needs to step in an dismantle such an illegitimate system. But will they?

EPA chief Gina McCarthy said Wednesday that the Obama administration is finished waiting for Congress to act on climate change and plans to bypass the legislative branch in developing a federal response.

Ms. McCarthy, who was confirmed last month as Environmental Protection Agency administrator, cited President Obama’s June 25 speech at Georgetown University, in which he unveiled his Climate Action Plan and vowed to make combatting climate change a priority of his second term.

Mr. Obama gave “what I really think is a most remarkable speech by a president of the United States,” said Ms. McCarthy in remarks at the University of Colorado Boulder.

“Essentially, he said that it is time to act,” she said. “And he said he wasn’t going to wait for Congress, but that he had administrative authorities and that it was time to start utilizing those more effectively and in a more concerted way.”

She insisted that reducing greenhouse-gas emissions could be accomplished without harming economic growth, calling the tension between the two priorities a “false choice.”

“We’re going to do this this year, next year, the following year, until people understand these are not scary things to do, these are actions we can all do, they’re actions that benefit everybody, that will grow the economy, and they’re actions that will protect the health and safety of individuals,” Ms. McCarthy said.

The president’s Climate Action Plan has come under criticism from Republicans, led by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, who said in June the plan amounted to a “war on coal” and a “war on jobs.”

“It’s tantamount to kicking the ladder out from beneath the feet of any Americans struggling in today’s economy,” Mr. McConnell said.

In 2009, Congress rejected a bill to establish a cap-and-trade system designed to discourage greenhouse-gas emissions. That measure, known as the Waxman-Markey bill, passed the House but was defeated in the Senate at a time when Democrats controlled both houses.

Mr. Obama’s plan comes after years of criticism from environmentalists who have faulted him for a lack of attention to global warming. The plan includes reducing carbon pollution from power plants, accelerating green-energy permitting, and increasing fuel-economy standards.
