Trump overturns Obama’s ‘fracking’ rules but the story is not what you think

 

I slid over to one of the “other” news channels for a sec…. of course I heard all of the doom and gloom that Trump was over turning Obama’s fracking rules and would allow undisclosed chemicals into God’s green earth… then I caught this from the Daily Caller which gives us the back story,. (Trump has as well solved the coal regs problem already) I nominate this as one of the best fake news stories of the year….

President Donald Trump’s administration will give a belated gift to American energy producers and repeal former President Barack Obama-era regulations for hydraulic fracturing operations on federal lands.

The Interior Department is expected to publish a repeal of the rule in the Federal Register on Friday, and already the oil and gas industry are celebrating. Producers challenged were locked in court battles over the rule since it was finalized in 2015.

“It was clear from the start that the federal rule was redundant with state regulation and politically motivated, as the prior administration could not point to one incident or regulatory gap that justified the rule,” Kathleen Sgamma, president of Western Energy Alliance, said in a statement.

Interior will publish the repeal of the rule two days after the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals dismissed an attempt to revive the Obama-era regulation. The court gave Interior until mid-January to repeal the rule.

Bill Clinton’s Multi-Million Dollar Communist Uranium Deal – Circa 2008

Note the date of the Post: Clinton’s Multi Million-Dollar Communist Uranium Deal  JANUARY 31, 2008. But we aren’t talking about Hillary, no, this Uranium thing started with Bill. And what do you know. The dirty cast of characters sound very familiar. One in the name of Frank Giustra.  In yesterday’s post Seven Facts to know about Uranium One – Hillary Clinton responds

  1. The Clinton Foundation Took Big Bucks from Uranium Investors
    According to theTimes, The Clinton Foundation received $2.35 million in donations from Ian Telfer, a mining investor who was also the chairman of Uranium One when Rosatom acquired it. It also received $31.3 million and a pledge for $100 million more from Frank Giustra, the Canadian mining financier whose company merged with Uranium One.

But I digressed. Keep your eyes open for Frank as I return to the chilling days of yesteryear:

Bill Clinton advocated for an oppressive communist leader known for human rights violations, corruption and election fraud to help a Vancouver businessman get uranium and, in return, the millionaire cut a hefty check to the former president’s foundation.

Clinton proudly used his clout to seal the sort of deal that would otherwise be impossible between an unknown uranium mining entrepreneur and the communist dictator of a former Soviet Republic (Kazakhstan), who happens to own one-fifth of the world’s uranium reserves.

With the help of his good buddy Clinton, Vancouver mining mogul Frank Giustra secured tens of millions of dollars worth of uranium to fuel nuclear reactors worldwide. The thank you note included a $31.3 million donation to the William J. Clinton Foundation as well as a future pledge of $100 million. (Seems like this is the going rate for Hillary as well.)

All Clinton had to do was endorse the election-rigging, communist human rights violator (Nursultan Nazarbayev) to head an international organization that monitors elections and supports democracy (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe). The former president’s endorsement defied the U.S. government and even his senator wife, who had previously signed a State Department letter detailing Nazarbayev’s serious corruption, canceled elections and government control of the news media.

Yet Clinton flew to meet the Nazarbayev and actually congratulated him for opening up his country’s social and political life to help seal the uranium deal. Incidentally, Clinton lied to the American public when he took the 2005 trip to the former Soviet Republic, saying the visit was to announce a Clinton Foundation agreement with that country to buy discounted AIDS drugs.

The Clinton’s have helped many wealthy donors secure lucrative deals with foreign governments and their ties to the communist Chinese have been well documented. In the 1990s Clinton and his Democratic party accepted massive campaign contributions from the Chinese in exchange for highly secret missile technology and his administration sold coveted commerce department seats in exchange for donations.  H/T: Judicial Watch

Christopher Wilson digs a little deeper into the Canadian connection. He does a nice job of putting the pieces together.

Seven Facts to know about Uranium One – Hillary Clinton responds

Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration find themselves at the center of an explosive scandal involving the transfer of 20 percent of all U.S. uranium to Russia via the sale of the Uranium One company, just as nine foreign investors in the deal funneled $145 million to the Clinton Foundation to help grease the wheels. Breitbart  has a roundup post of important facts called 7 Uranium One Facts Every American Should Know. Meanwhile Hillary is still holding her own as the vast Right Wing Conspiracy lumbers along, hopeful that justice will be meted out to her criminal enterprise. Here is my number one that should land her in jail.

It also received $31.3 million and a pledge for $100 million more from Frank Giustra, the Canadian mining financier whose company merged with Uranium One.

 

During an interview with C-SPAN, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the controversy surrounding the 2010 uranium deal between Russia and the Obama administration had been “debunked.”

Clinton said “I would say it’s the same baloney they’ve been peddling for years, and there’s been no credible evidence by anyone. In fact, it’s been debunked repeatedly and will continue to be debunked.”

She continued, “But here is what they are doing and I have to give them credit. Trump and his allies, including Fox News, are really experts at distraction and diversion. So the closer the investigation about real Russian ties between Trump associates and real Russians, as we heard Jeff Sessions finally admit to in his testimony the other day, the more they want to just throw mud on the wall. I’m their favorite target. Me and President Obama, we are the ones they like to put in the crosshairs.”

Bombshell – Russia, FBI, Uranium and Clinton Bribery Plot

 

Why this isn’t a headline on Drudge beats me. Hannity promised a big reveal, and last night he followed up on the story broken by “The Hill.” This should land Hillary in jail for selling out our Uranium. I started posting about this in 2010 and glad this finally has seen the light of day. Better yet, Eric Holder, Muller and Rosenstein, the very fine fellows who are investigating Trump and Russia knew about the bribery and did nothing. That’s right… they all should be in jail. Grassley is holding a hearing this morning.

UPDATE AT BOTTOM OF POST!

Earlier posts of mine:

Clintons and the give away of U.S. Uranium mines

Now the latest today from The Hill:

Before the Obama administration approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government documents and interviews.

Federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make secret recordings and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FBI and court documents show.

Rather than bring immediate charges in 2010, however, the Department of Justice (DOJ) continued investigating the matter for nearly four more years, essentially leaving the American public and Congress in the dark about Russian nuclear corruption on U.S. soil during a period when the Obama administration made two major decisions benefiting Putin’s commercial nuclear ambitions.

The first decision occurred in October 2010, when the State Department and government agencies on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States unanimously approved the partial sale of Canadian mining company Uranium One to the Russian nuclear giant Rosatom, giving Moscow control of more than 20 percent of America’s uranium supply.

Snip…

That’s when conservative author Peter Schweitzer and The New York Times documented how Bill Clinton collected hundreds of thousands of dollars in Russian speaking fees and his charitable foundation collected millions in donations from parties interested in the deal while Hillary Clinton presided on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States.

On Wednesday Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA) asked Attorney General Sessions if Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will be allowed to investigate himself regarding new information on the Hillary Clinton Uranium One scandal.
Attorney General Sessions said it was up to him.

D.C. Court smacks down Trump in attempt to overturn Obama made EPA ‘Rule’

The USA had now turned into nothing less than a country ruled by Progressives courts. Obama made a rule that some bureaucrat, not Congress, made and the D.C. Court in a 9-2 decision does not permit Trump to over turn it. This is just the beginning. The friendly Obama loaded  D.C. Court will strike down more of Trump’s roll backs no doubt. Hopes for Obamacare rule roll backs can be forgotten:

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) must enforce a rule regulating methane emissions the Trump administration repealed earlier this year, a federal court ruled Monday night.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia made the ruling after the court decided in July that the EPA unlawfully delayed acting on former President Barack Obama’s methane rule, which sets greenhouse gas emission levels and requires the energy industry to fix leaks.

EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt sought a two-year pause on the rule so the agency could “look broadly” at a host of Obama-era rules. The oil and gas industry opposes the regulation, arguing it’s unnecessary and duplicative of already existing rules. The industry also self-regulates methane leaks.

Solar Panels increased emissions of a gas 17,200 more potent that CO2

Forget how many birds are fried when getting too close to a solar panel, including Bald Eagles, now we hear that a byproduct of solar panels causes even more problems. All of this over the cause of so-called “Climate Change” the existence of which has been in effect since the beginning of the earth apparently. Here tis:

New federal data shows a potent greenhouse gas — that’s also a byproduct of solar panel construction — is on the rise.

solar-panels2

Nitrogen trifluoride (NF3) is a key chemical agent used to manufacture photovoltaic cells for solar panels, suggesting government subsidies and tax credits for solar panels may be a driving factor behind the 1,057 percent in NF3 over the last 25 years. In comparison, U.S. carbon dioxide emissions only rose by about 5 percent during the same time period.

NF3 emissions are 17,200 times more potent than CO2 as a greenhouse gas over a 100 year time period.

The research was financially supported by the Technology Foundation STW, which is a governmental agency of the European Commission.

Trump repeals coal mining regulations, signs legislation

If you missed the presser yesterday, you really missed some great theatre.  A little reported action done right after his presser was this action. This was another IED the Obama administration implanted in December as he was going out the door. It essentially closed down coal mining in Appalachia. This is why Trump won. Five seconds of Clinton: “We’re Going To Put A Lot Of Coal Miners And Coal Companies Out Of Business”

President Trump on Thursday signed legislation ending a key Obama administration coal mining rule.

The bill quashes the Office of Surface Mining’s Stream Protection Rule, a regulation to protect waterways from coal mining waste that officials finalized in December.

The legislation is the second Trump has signed into law ending an Obama-era environmental regulation. On Tuesday, he signed a Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution undoing a financial disclosure requirement for energy companies.

Both the mining and financial disclosure bills are the tip of a GOP push to undo a slate of regulations instituted in the closing days of the Obama administration. The House has passed several CRA resolutions, and the Senate has so far sent three of them to President Trump for his signature. More at The Hill

Republicans argued the stream rule is duplicative and would force more coal mines to close, forcing more miners out of work. Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota supported the rule’s repeal.

The Obama administration finalized the stream rule in December 2016. Democrats and environmentalists support the rule because it restricts the amount of mining that can happen in Appalachia.
