Barack Obama - #3870 - Obama's Second Term Transformation Plans (2) Obama Wants Power Not Jobs - American Thinker

VERY POWERFUL ARTICLE: PLEASE READ:
Americans do not understand that Obama's first term was dedicated to putting in place executive power to enable him to fulfill the campaign promise of "transforming America" in his second term regardless of which political party controls Congress. The 2012 election has often been described as the most pivotal since 1860. This statement is not hyperbole. If Barack Obama is re-elected the United States will never be the same, nor will it be able to re-capture its once lofty status as the most dominant nation in the history of mankind. The overwhelming majority of Americans do not understand that Obama's first term was dedicated to putting in place executive power to enable him and the administration to fulfill the campaign promise of "transforming America" in his second term regardless of which political party controls Congress. That is why his re-election team is virtually ignoring the plight of incumbent or prospective Democratic Party office holders. The most significant accomplishment of Obama's first term is to make Congress irrelevant. Under the myopic and blindly loyal leadership of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, the Democrats have succeeded in creating an imperial and, in a second term, a potential dictatorial presidency. During the first two years of the Obama administration when the Democrats overwhelming controlled both Houses of Congress and the media was in an Obama worshipping stupor, a myriad of laws were passed and actions taken which transferred virtually unlimited power to the executive branch.

Obama Wants Power Not Jobs - American Thinker - New energy development can mean an economic miracle. So why is Obama trying to kill it? Natural gas is a feedstock for the production of fertilizer, plastics, and many chemical products. Fortunately, America possesses vast reserves of recoverable natural gas. The low price of this gas is one factor spurring companies like Dow Chemical to expand production in the United States rather than send jobs overseas. How many jobs? According to one reliable estimate, low gas prices resulting from hydraulic fracturing will result in the creation of one million new jobs in the U.S. in the next decade and a half. ............... It all sounds like an economic miracle, and it is. So why is Obama trying to kill it? That is what he is doing with his recently appointed "oversight group" headed by a long-time environmental activist to regulate fracking, his veto of the Keystone XL pipeline, his repeated proposals of $40 billion in new taxes on the oil and gas industry, and the continuing effort on the part of his EPA to link fracking to water and air pollution. For two very good reasons, the regulation of the oil and gas business has always been entrusted to the state and not at the federal government (except for federal lands). First, there is no constitutional basis for federal regulation of energy production within state borders. State regulation of natural resources falls within the limited powers clause of the Constitution. Federal regulators have no basis for attempting to regulate energy producers operating within state borders. Read more..........
