THE EPA IS FASCISM  1:39 pm June 11, 2010

How Did Senate’s Vote Against Oil-Lover Murkowski’s Bill Actually Murder America’s Troops?

by Ken Layne

Uh, got a point there, we bet!
The Senate defeated the Dirty Energy Industry’s sleazy attempt to prevent any kind of enforcement of gross carbon emissions, hooray, the ads on Wonkette worked! The AP had a pretty good single-sentence summary of what happened: “The defeated resolution would have denied the Environmental Protection Agency the authority to move ahead with the rules, crafted under the federal Clean Air Act.” But what really happened is Barack Obama literally pissed on the graves of dead veterans, at Arlington National Cemetery … and he did this right after Memorial Day!

Adhering to a half-century-old federal law to clean up America’s air that is enforced by a 40-year-old cabinet-level agency proposed and created by Richard Nixon, did you know this was a treasonous act? It is! Our Troops have been anointed by Sarah Palin to fight against our nation’s laws, so that …. uh, to support the troops! Anything else, such as American law, is technically illegal. When will the troops kill the Senate for this coup?

American freedom suffered a terrible setback today that desperately calls out for a constitutional revival. It will take forceful leadership to restore our nation’s elected branches back to their proper station. As Democracy gains ground in the Middle East thanks to perseverance of U.S. soldiers, it is ironic to see it lose ground here at home.

Ironic. There’s that word again! Wingnuts have been loving this word, on blogs, since Socialism/Fascism was imposed on America because of the anti-troops seduction of the popular vote, which savagely elected some moderate corporate Democrats. [American Spectator]

Our soldiers are working hard to bring home clean air to us so why shld we dishonor their efforts by making our own clean air…or something.

Also?

Having the EPA enforce the Clean Air Act dishonors veterans?

Did Obama piss on one of the mis-marked graves?

Can’t be too big of a deal, Sarah hasn’t twatted about it.

FMA June 11, 2010 at 1:52 pm

You see, irony would be this wingnut successfully lobbying against clean-air standards and then dying of lung disease. Or being hit by a bus, a big goddamn bus. Either one works.

Manos: Hands of Fate June 11, 2010 at 1:55 pm

My grandpa served in WWII and what I’m really disgusted with are all those stopping me from catching pigeons and selling them as Kobe beef. What the hell did he fight for if not for that?

Lascauxcaveman June 11, 2010 at 1:55 pm

The ads on Wonkette always work. Do we even need to mention this?

“Water is wet,” “The Pope is Catholic,” etc. etc.

Prommie June 11, 2010 at 1:56 pm

It dissed the troops the same way the oil spill is the fault of the extreme greens.

Manos: Hands of Fate June 11, 2010 at 1:57 pm

those rules that is.

“Restore our nation’s elected branches back to their proper station”? Aren’t these the dickweeds who wanted to make Dubya King George II?

Next thing you know they’ll be forcing Exxon to pay taxes. Trotskyites!

harry palmer June 11, 2010 at 2:00 pm

It’s only democracy if this Moonie gets a vote on every decision made by those elected to serving in the executive branch. Therefore, EPA actions not voted on by Mr Moonie are socialism/facism, which is ironic because we fought against the commies in WWII.

Maybe if all these fucking wingnuts would shaddup for five minutes the EPA wouldn’t HAVE to limit toxins in the air.

comicbookguy June 11, 2010 at 2:08 pm

Am I to understand that the EPA dishonors our troops by taking away their right to fight for fossil fuels? Is regulating the oil industry a job for the marines?

[re=597041]gjdodger[/re]: It’s cyclical, just like climate change. Unitary executive when Republicans are in power, then restore the executive to its rightful place when they’re not.

Oldskool June 11, 2010 at 2:11 pm

This “American freedom” thing should be kept in a jar of formaldehyde before it evolves any farther.

Escape Goat Nation June 11, 2010 at 2:12 pm

Fox Nation has a different take:
Dey tuk ar jerbs!

They used the other word to describe everything about Obama:
RADICAL!

“Jobs?….. Who Needs Jobs?

The Democrats in the US Senate just rejected a bid to stop the radical Obama Administration from further strangling manufacturing and business in the United States.

The vote was 53-47.

53 Democrats rejected a bid by Republicans to block the new restrictions on American manufacturing!

you cannot be serious June 11, 2010 at 2:12 pm

M-O-O-N-E-Y. That spells idiot.

JMP June 11, 2010 at 2:14 pm

The elected branches are not in their proper station because the Senate rejected a law this nitwit wanted? Irony, I do not think that word means what he thinks it means.

Oh, and when the EPA under Bush refused to regulate CO2, even this corporatist Supreme Court ruled they were failing to uphold the Clean Air Act. Or do older laws just automatically expire in Mr. Moonie’s world-view?

Neilist June 11, 2010 at 2:15 pm

El Pinche June 11, 2010 at 2:16 pm

Using the troops is soooooo 2004. It needs more anti-incumbency and teabaggers, then the MSM will run with it.

SayItWithWookies June 11, 2010 at 2:16 pm

The economic fallout would be devastating. The lowered CO2 targets favored by environmental pressure groups, which are in the neighborhood of 390 parts per million to 350 ppm, would spur a global depression. This would enable environmental activists to use the CAA as vehicle for forced deindustrialization.

Well at least the author’s not comparing environmentalists to Nazis — just to the Khmer Rouge. That Kevin Mooney is probably up for some sort of award for understatement.

JMP June 11, 2010 at 2:18 pm

[re=597034]Lascauxcaveman[/re]: Well I did recently lose 32 pounds obeying one rule discovered by a mom.

[re=597048]Jim89048[/re]: Silly, Democracy is invalid when people elect leaders we don’t like. See also: Venezuela, Haiti, earlier in the 2000s in Iran (before the last, actually cheating election), and Chile 1972.

Poochie June 11, 2010 at 2:19 pm

“Veterans” of which he is not. Chicken hawk defies irony.

BeWoot June 11, 2010 at 2:23 pm

My father fought the Nazis specifically to prevent the EPA from acting on its enabling legislation! (And like Gov. Jan Brewer’s daddy, he later died.) I also had forebears in the Civil War … on both sides! … and they each had the same dream: Environmental protection never!

Old Texican here.
All right, fess up. Which one of you wrote this:

Folks, this tears it! This tears the blanket.

Honestly, the healthcare bill can be buried and de-funded. This cannot be.

This is literally cutting off the life-blood of our country.
I am going to invest in mules that do not fart. I am going to spend what ever is left of my life looking at a mule’s butt, plowing my own corn.

…heh…no I am not!

I am firing the US government bureaucrats…en masse.

“Feckless,” also.

Yes, but according to the news today, he missed.

[re=597064]SayItWithWookies[/re]: 390 parts per million – 350 ppm doesn’t sound like enough parts per million of environmental pressure groups to actually spur a global depression.

That sounds like scaremongering to me.

Tim June 11, 2010 at 2:37 pm

My grandfather fought in WW1, WW2, Iran, Vietnam, Grenada, Laos, Cambodia, Nicaragua, Panama, Bosnia … and now works for Blackwater … and for WHAT? WHAT IS HAPPENING TO MY COUNTRY?!?!

Snarkalicious June 11, 2010 at 2:41 pm

[re=597070]BeWoot[/re]: Yeah. Everybody knows that painting of Washington crossing the Delaware. What they left out was my great uncle Steve in the boat behind him, dynamiting fish and dumping huge buckets of treacle into the water with the rest of his citizen flotilla. They made this omission so as not to overshadow old George’s accomplishments with more important matters. A nation needs many heroes, after all.

Hemp Dogbane June 11, 2010 at 2:44 pm

This guy was previously employed as the banker on The Beverly Hillbillies. Bachmann played Miss Hathaway, Palin was Ellie Mae. Can’t remember the name of the guy who played Jethro. I think I heard he has recently entered politics in SC.

Poochie June 11, 2010 at 2:46 pm

Damn environmentalists are wicked powerful. Must stop their evil tyranny and drill closer to Mooney estate.

dex June 11, 2010 at 2:50 pm

ironic, indeed; it is like rain on your wedding day, or perhaps a free ride when you’re already late.

Prommie June 11, 2010 at 2:51 pm

Environmental regulations make the infant baby jesus cry, and they piss on the troops, too.

SayItWithWookies June 11, 2010 at 2:54 pm

[re=597078]the problem child[/re]: Maybe if they all stood in the same place it would cause a depression. Definitely a little dent, at least — that is about a quarter of a million people.

[re=597064]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Like we’re not in a global depression already…

I’ve met guys who have actually shot Germans during my younger son’s various stays at VA facilities, but I forgot to ask them about any environmental issues other than lead projectiles of .50 caliber or less flying around.

[re=597104]steverino247[/re]: They probably were too focused on other stuff to notice — but the cleanup fell under the Marshall Plan — you know, the socialist tax-and-spend boondoggle that didn’t create any real jobs and which kept Europe’s economy in the toilet after the war.

[re=597156]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Yeah, there’s nothing to be gained from the Swords-to-Plowshares crazy. Why just the other day, I was wondering how many homes in the US could have solar panels installed for a trillion dollars. Oh, about 20 million of them, depending on the options. If you put some Manhattan Project emphasis on solving the problem of efficient solar instead of spoofing IED’s, you might get all of them done. Put them all on the grid and Arizona might actually be useful to the rest of the country.

comicbookguy June 11, 2010 at 4:18 pm

Our troops fought and died for that oil, and now you libtard elites aren’t going to let us burn it? Today, democracy died.

Real DC Native June 11, 2010 at 4:25 pm

Real irony would be if there was a big oil spill right in Murkowski’s state. No, never mind. Irony would be if rising sea levels were endangering some species, say polar bears, in Murkowski’s home state. No, Damn all irony stuff.

Mad Brahms June 11, 2010 at 4:34 pm

5 things Republicans have in common with Alanis Morisette:

1) Terrible hair
2) Lack of idea of what “irony” actually is
3) Pent-up rage
4) … Canadian? Oh, fuck it.

OK, THREE things.

BarackMyWorld June 11, 2010 at 6:10 pm

Oh. My. God.

I tried to read that American Spectator article in hopes they could offer some twisted logic or twice removed kernel of truth to justify such a ridiculous headline, but apparently whoever wrote it just said “fuck it, why start now?” and just wrote whatever the hell popped into their head.

The best thing is the ad at the top for a bacon favored partially hydrogenated lard based pork rind dipping sauce called Baconnaise.
