Cloud Whisperers and the EPA

Our founders thought of everything. The First Amendment, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion...” keeps self-serving politicians from abusing the power of the federal government and promoting a preferred religion with which to advance an agenda. Unfortunately, today the Constitution is easily ignored and environmentalism has become America’s sponsored religion. This was not an accident.

Since the early 1900s, our nation has been engaged in an ideological battle between free market capitalism and Marxism. Advocates for the latter have found a comfortable home in today’s clean and green movement, because both Marxism and environmentalism control the citizenry through suffocating bureaucracy. Recent history reveals the steps. In 1991, the Soviet Union collapsed around the ankles of President Mikhail Gorbachev. Communism simply could not compete with free market capitalism, so he found an easier way. Within two years Mr. Gorbachev resurfaced as a world leader in the environmental movement when he formed Green Cross International—one of the organizations behind today’s United Nation’s Agenda 21. Any economic activity which strengthens free market capitalism relative to Marxism, environmentalists deem as polluting and it is regulated into submission. Two recent examples are President Obama blocking all new uranium claims on lands surrounding the Grand Canyon and postponing a decision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline. The president uses the universal excuse of concern for the environment to hide his true motives, so let’s take a look behind the scenes.

Wealth comes from the land—God put it there. Be it agriculture, mining, timber, coal, oil or gas, all dollars generated harvesting, mining or refining these resources expand our wealth. (Even wind generated electricity could be considered true wealth were it economically self-supporting. It is not. Wind doesn’t rotate the turbine blades, subsidies do.) A rapidly expanding new wealth economy provides freedom. For example, Montanans pocketing 70K a year driving truck in the oil fields have no need for government programs like TANF, SNAP or SCHIP. Self-sufficient citizens refuse to kneel and lick the hand of the ruling elite who feed them, so a massive, nine billion dollar per year, federal agency has been created to decrease freedom and promote dependency. It is called the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and it functions as the church of our national religion.

Under the auspices of the Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act, the EPA is planning to crush free market capitalism by regulating everything from farm dust to gasoline to carbon emissions from coal fired power plants. This will destroy states like Montana which have vast natural resources, plus drive the price of food and fuel beyond the checkbook of the common man. Ten dollar per gallon gasoline will make even the most patriotic American beg for relief through government aid programs. Although the EPA is the biggest government church promoting environmentalism, other agencies are coming to their aid.

Another storm of secret e-mails released in November, show our very own US Department of Energy was complicit in suppressing data contradictory to the preferred conclusion of man caused climate change. This is a Mount Rushmore of frauds. When members of academia abandon scientific principles and prostitute themselves to publish data supporting pre-conceived conclusions they have reduced their credibility to the mystic level of a cloud whisperer. All colleges, universities, and scientists who conduct research using government grants are contaminated and should be called into question.

The EPA must be defunded and the states must nullify its rulings as being an unconstitutional usurpation of federal power…or we kneel and lick the hand which feeds us. It’s your choice. As for me, I’m not much for crawling.
