EPA preparing to unleash a deluge of new regulations

***Fundraising time - Merry Christmas to all.  First of all, we may have fallen on a source of income that may well take over from our fundraising efforts.  In order to do this one, I have to come up with an addition $110, so added onto the deficit, I am now looking for a total of $460, and if we get it, I won't have to ever come back for help from our readers.  

I have disliked asking as much as I would hate running ads, so believe me when I say that this will end all of that if you can help us out one more time.   I will tell you more about this opportunity later and why I selected it.  As usual, I need the $70 as soon as possible, to get started as soon as possible, and the balance of $350 by the first of the month of the new year.  Thank you for all your support during these turbulent times.  May God bless you in a very special way.

Vatic Note:   This is  up because these are the regulations passed, that are going to be used against the Bundy Ranch.... the last ranch in southern Nevada.  Now the entire southern part of Nevada is tied up by the Federal Government.  Its what the communists do when they complete the take over of a nation.

They use these types of rules and regulations to confiscate land under control of the Government and then fascism takes over control of the government and these corporations can then rape and pillage the land and steal the natural resources. Its going on all over the world.

Its what they are doing in Gaza,  Ukraine, and  other countries. Its the khazars that first promoted Communism and actually over threw governments like Russia, made them into a communist country and then the bankers took it over and did exactly what we said they would do here.  

Notice where ever there is a conflict, there has been found oil, or natural gas or Uranium under the ground.   I guess they got tired of paying out royalties to these governments and to private land owners.   Lets not forget that the Queen of England is to Uranium, as DeBeers is to diamonds.  She owns the vast majority of Uranium mines throughout Canada and the USA.

If we always remember this:   These elite never, ever do anything for the good of the world, their countries or the people.   They only do what they do for themselves and their class of elite zionist bankers and their corporate holdings.  We need to push our newly elected reps to go in and overturn these land grabbing regulations and purge the EPA of any conflict of interest. 

EPA preparing to unleash a deluge of new regulations
By Michael Bastasch, Contributor  -  11/27/13

Happy holidays from the Obama administration. Federal agencies are currently working on rolling out hundreds of environmental regulations, including major regulations that would limit emissions from power plants and expand the agency’s authority to bodies of water on private property.

On Tuesday, the White House released its regulatory agenda for the fall of 2013. It lists hundreds of pending energy and environmental regulations being crafting by executive branch agencies, including 134 regulations from the Environmental Protection Agency alone.

The EPA is currently crafting 134 major and minor regulations, according to the White House’s regulatory agenda. Seventy-six of the EPA’s pending regulations originate from the agency’s air and radiation office, including carbon-dioxide-emission limits on power plants.

Carbon-dioxide limits are a key part of President Barack Obama’s climate agenda. The EPA is set to set emissions limits that would effectively ban the construction of new coal-fired power plants unless they use carbon capture and sequestration technology. Next year, the agency will move to limit emissions from existing power plants — which could put more older coal plants out of commission.

“The proposed standards, if finalized, will establish achievable limits of carbon pollution per megawatt hour for all future units, moving the nation towards a cleaner and more efficient energy future,” the agency said in its agenda. “In 2014, EPA intends to propose standards of performance for greenhouse gas emissions from existing and modified power plant sources.”

Hundreds of coal plants that have been closed or slated for early retirement due to Environmental Protection Agency regulations, according to coal industry estimates.

“Already, EPA regulations have contributed to the closure of more than 300 coal units in 33 states,” said Laura Sheehan, spokeswoman for the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity.
However, the agency isn’t just working on limiting emissions from coal plants. The EPA is also working on a rule that would expand the definition of “waters of the U.S.” under the Clean Water Act to include water on private property.
Republicans have hammered the EPA’s draft water rule as the largest expansion of agency power in history.
“The EPA’s draft water rule is a massive power grab of private property across the U.S. This could be the largest expansion of EPA regulatory authority ever,” Texas Republican Rep. Lamar Smith. “If the draft rule is approved, it would allow the EPA to regulate virtually every body of water in the United States, including private and public lakes, ponds and streams.”
The EPA’s rule is heavily supported by environmentalists who argue that it’s necessary to protecting water quality. Smaller water sources, they argue, eventually affect larger water sources that people use for recreation or their livelihood.
“It’s taking the way the Clean Water Act works back, so that it works the way water works in the real world,” Bob Wendelgass, president and CEO of Clean Water Action, told Fox News.
The EPA says the rule is needed to clear up uncertainty left in the wake of U.S. Supreme Court decisions on the agency’s regulatory authority over bodies of water.
“The [Clean Water Act] does not distinguish among programs as to what constitutes ‘waters of the United States,’” the agency said. “As a result, these decisions affect the geographic scope of all [Clean Water Act] programs.”
