Coal company shuts down, town now no longer has water

This isn’t a big story, but it is a story of the consequences of the Obama’s determination to destroy the coal industry. Jobs lost and the “other little things” that go with living in a company town. Once in awhile it’s a good thing to put a face on the misery that is being caused for little or no reason. Especially this time of year.

Residents of Prenter Camp, W.Va. woke up one morning to no showers or tap water. The Boone County township had its water supply shut off with no notice or explanation, and is now uncertain where to turn for a solution.

The water supply used to be guaranteed through a relationship with the local coal mining company, which has since gone out of business. As reported on the Metro News website:

The power bill for the pump house… had always been paid by Patriot Coal. Patriot is now bankrupt and gone. The company which shut off the power this week was ERPS Oil… ERPS is an oil and gas exploration company. [ERPS] paid the bill for a couple of months after Patriot Coal was dissolved, but apparently stopped paying this week.

“If we don’t get some emergency help to get water put back in this is a health concern,” she said. “We can’t take showers, we can’t flush our commode, we’ll need drinking water eventually.  This is something that really needs to be jumped on, but it seems like we’re not getting any help.”

Bonus information why the above is happening. Regulations.

The Daily Caller reports:

An Obama administration official has said that the new clean coal rules could increase electricity prices by as much as 80 percent.
Dr. Julio Friedmann, the deputy assistant secretary for clean coal at the Department of Energy, told House lawmakers that the first generation of carbon capture and storage technology would increase wholesale electricity prices by “70 or 80 percent.”
The Obama administration’s plan to fight global warming includes limiting carbon dioxide from new power plants. In order for new coal-fired power plants to be built, however, they would need to install costly carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology.

Mooch tells us we need to drink water to stay alive

I had intended to do a follow-up on yesterday’s post regarding O’Bagy and the organization funded by our military contractors the  Institute for the Study of War. But I am “plum wore out.” Will work on it this weekend. But this should hold us over. In one of the most condescending arrogant clips, Mooch assumes we are too ignorant to stay alive without her. By the way Moo… water isn’t free.

And if you don’t drink your water she will come to your house, rip both your arms off, take your garden hose, jam it down your throat and crank it up to high until you have water squirting from every orifice in your body.

Here we go with a replacement video

Mark Levin take on the food police. He had some great remarks on Moo and her water patrol. I couldn’t find the clip, but here is a good reminder of the “Order” he placed, and what the real message is.

Tombstone AZ Water- Agenda 21 will finally finish it?

Agenda 21 hits Tombstone. A few annoying seconds of commercial in the video below, and the story is told. When is America going to wake up and realize what this government is doing to us? Obama sure doesn’t care for Arizona now does he? This is what happens when you cross a Dictator. I wonder why. I just heard that the Supreme Court has decided not to take the case. Update: Fox just posted another good video of their coverage of this story here is the link: Fox News Video Tombstone’s water war

The City of Tombstone is squaring off against the U.S. Forest Service over water rights in a fight to rescue “The Town Too Tough to Die.” Citing the Wilderness Act, the Forest Service is refusing to allow the city to repair its waterlines to mountain springs it has owned for nearly seventy years – and which date back to the 1880s. This refusal is threatening residents, private property and public safety with the risk of a total loss of fire protection and safe drinking water.

 

In a show down between the federal government and the “Town Too Tough to Die,” the U.S. Forest Service is refusing to allow Tombstone to repair its mountain spring water lines after forest fires, floods and torrential mudslides destroyed them in the Monument Fire of 2011. Not content with allowing forest fires to burn down some of the most beautiful land in Arizona, the Forest Service is willing to risk the lives and properties of Tombstone residents and tourists due to the loss of adequate fire suppression capabilities and  safe drinking water More at.Goldwater

Brazen Boxer, Feinstein reverse, Now Want Water for California Farmers

So which is it Boxer and Feinstein? You were opposed to water September 23rd, 2009. The Democrats opposed legislation the Republicans offered, and you voted down giving water to the San Joaquin Valley in favor of the Smelt. Reverse: Now in favor. All for Obamacare and getting two more votes. Sorry Smelt, you lost to Obamacare and our corrupt goverment. What could not be done by a vote is now done by a dictatorship. And that is what we have.

NOW:

The U.S. Department of Interior announced yesterday that it is increasing water allocations for the Central Valley of California, a region that depends on these water allocations to support local agriculture and jobs. The region has recently been starved for water and as a result unemployment has soared. Not surprisingly, Cardoza and Costa had a hand in the announcement:

“Typically, Reclamation would release the March allocation update around March 22nd, but moved up the announcement at the urging of Senators Feinstein and Boxer, and Congressmen Costa and Cardoza.“(“Interior Announces Increased Water Supply Allocations in California,” U.S. Department of Interior news release, 3/16/10)

BEFORE:

Feinstein & Boxer Vote Against Water for California Farms.   September 23rd, 2009 • Richard Cochrane

On the Senate floor, a clearly unhappy Feinstein likened the surprise amendment to Pearl Harbor and she voiced dismay that it would be brought up without her prior knowledge.

DeMint’s long-shot amendment to a Fiscal 2010 Interior Department funding bill would have effectively restored full irrigation deliveries for a year to what is being referred to as a new Death Valley. The 400 miles San Joaquin Valley is a fertile strip of farm land that produces more fruits and vegetables per square foot than any comparable land in the nation – when it has water, which it does not.

 With hundreds of thousands of Californians out of work, food prices rising rapidly and California’s  farmers both its U. S. Senate an amendment that was billed as a way to help solve the San Joaquin Valley’s water problems.

By a nearly party line 61-36 vote, the Democratic-controlled Senate rejected the amendment offered by Republican Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina. http://richardcochrane.hypocrisy.com/2009/09/23/feinstein-boxer-vote-against-water-for-california-farms/

NOW PRESENT DAY:

The president’s health care reforms are on the ropes and the San Joaquin Valley’s two blue-dog Democratic congressmen Dennis Cardoza and Jim Costa have been reluctant to support the president’s reforms. So imagine everyone’s surprise when the Department of the Interior announced yesterday that it is dramatically increasing the water supply to the valley’s parched lands. And what a coincidence, now the two California congressmen who were once “undecided” are being moved over into the “yes” column:

As a vote approaches on Obama and Pelosi’s government takeover of healthcare, Code Red is now considering two supposedly “undecided” California Democrats, Dennis Cardoza and Jim Costa, to now be “yes” votes.
