Texas Moves to Block EPA Enforcement…(Go Texas!!..My Homestate!!)
Sunday, September 25, 2011
One of the biggest job killing agencies in the Federal Government is the Environmental Protection Agency. They have shut down factories and recently raided Gibson Guitar Plants in Memphis and Nashville Tennessee over were the wood was finished enforcing foreign law. They are blocking the drilling off shore and prevent many refineries coming online. This agency has been responsible for our energy cost going through the roof. This agency has a anti American, anti freedom and anti free market agenda to bring down eh US economy.
The Texas Attorney General is taking the EPA to court to block enforcement of new rules President Barrack Obama is implementing. These new carbon rules are the Cap and Trade laws the President could not get congress to pass. So he bypasses congress and implements the rules through the regulatory process. The two things that could work in Texas’s favor is these new rules are based on fraudulent data that has been proven to be just a fraud. The other thing is the President cannot just makes rules if he does not get what he wants from Congress using executive orders. The Constitution delegates the President only the power enforce the laws of Congress. Not to mention the ninth and tenth amendments to the bill of rights do apply too if a court recognizes the original intent of the founders.
The State of Texas is now approaching the Winter months. Feb 2nd of this year we had rolling blackouts throughout the State on a day record cold temperatures. ERCOT was ordered by the EPA to do rolling blackouts because of a the high demand of electricity used they claim. I believe these plants shut down so they do not exceed their carbon limit or be fined by the US government. There was no excuse for rolling blackouts. Due to the EPA rules. Many coal power plants were ordered to shut down by the EPA without any law passed by Congress. Many coal plants in Texas had burdensome regulations placed on them that makes it impossible to operate. Texas was forced to buy electricity that day from Mexico who has no EPA rules. Texas used to provide electricity to other states as far as to Kansas. These new rules does not make it happen anymore. Texas has to buy electricity form Mexico now because of these new rules to avoid these rolling blackouts.
