Well because I couldn’t figure out how to explain that the Obama Administration isn’t trying to save the Economy, but Transform it. Ironically my problem didn’t stem from a lack of proof, but instead from too much.
See, the majority of people will never read a long article, even if I posted next weeks winning lottery numbers at the bottom, because we as a society are used to getting everything in an instant. You could say that technology, and videos in particular, have bred a generation with enough ADD that they would rather watch a minute long video than read a 3 page article even if it saved their life.
Knowing this I finally decided why should I tell you at all? Instead I’ll let Obama and his administration do it for me.
How can I do this?
Well because Obama and his administration haven’t been hiding their plans to transform the economy from an Oil base to a ‘Green’ base, but have instead been bragging about it.
Let me start where everything starts… at the beginning.
In May of 2007 then Senator Obama spoke at the Detroit Economic Club luncheon where he explained how Oil is not only a threat to our National Security, but is fueling Global Warming. He also states that America can not continue on this path and that there is no longer a choice, America must drastically change it’s energy policy. He flat out states the age of oil must end in our time. Or as he also puts it the “Tyranny of Oil” must end. (comment starts around 1:40 mark)
After that video I could basically end this article now, Senator Obama just admitted to exactly what I just said President Obama is doing, transforming the economy. Senator Obama just explained in that short video clip why President Obama has done everything since he has taken office, from the Government take over of GM (Detroit is supposed to lead the Great Transformation as Obama just stated in the video) to the new regulatory actions by the EPA that are going to shut down coal plants and drive up energy prices. He is doing this because it is all in the name of his plan for transforming the economy, not saving it.
The next video is of President Obama in 2009, giving his ‘Stimulus Speech’ where he explained how he has a plan to end the “Tyranny of Oil”:
Also in 2009, President Obama states that ‘Green Energy’ will create millions of jobs and that he (the Government) needs to encourage those efforts:
How is Obama “encouraging their efforts” in transforming the economy?
One of the ways is through the Stimulus.
According to the Recovery.Gov website, the Obama administration has given billions of Dollars to agencies, like the $34 Billion given to the Department of Energy, in order to push forward his transformation plan. But again he doesn’t hide what he is doing. The ‘overview’ of the Stimulus posted on the Recovery.Gov website explains exactly what the Stimulus is being used for:
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) was signed into law by President Obama on February 17th, 2009. It is an unprecedented effort to jumpstart our economy, create or save millions of jobs, and put a down payment on addressing long-neglected challenges so our country can thrive in the 21st century. The Act is an extraordinary response to a crisis unlike any since the Great Depression, and includes measures to modernize our nation’s infrastructure, enhance energy independence, expand educational opportunities, preserve and improve affordable health care, provide tax relief, and protect those in greatest need.”
What is not only mind boggling, and in some way disturbingly impressive, is how the Obama administration is using all of the Government agencies to push forward his plan, even the USDA.
For example, the Department of Energy (DOE) “invested” 3.4 Billion dollars to push forward the Smart Grid not to mention the billions of dollars worth of loans that they have guaranteed for ‘Green Tech’ since the Stimulus was passed.
But Obama using his administration in order to supply funding for his vision of the future isn’t the only way he is “encouraging private sectors efforts”.
By making Guarantees to the Private Sector that there will be a Market for their Green Products. (Watch the whole thing if you can, otherwise the comment starts at the 17:50 Mark)
In order for Obama’s dream of ending the “Tyranny of Oil” to become reality then all of us ‘Consumers’ must be ‘Guided’ by the Government to buy all of this ‘Green Tech’ so that the Obama administration can “Guarantee” the “Private Sector” a market in which there will be steady demand.
This also explains why Obama has been doing everything he can to stand in the way of Oil production, why he basically created an electric car mandate through new CAFE standards and is even giving the EPA the power to write energy efficiency standards for home appliances. It’s because, as Obama admitted years ago when he said his energy plan would make energy prices skyrocket, it’s all meant to make you to accept his new ‘Transformed’ Green economy by limiting your choices and forcing you to live the way they want you to by hitting you in your wallet. And more importantly doing all of this without your consent.
