While many Americans are cutting back on household budgets to put $4.00 a gallon gasoline in their vehicles to get back and forth to work, a couple of Obama-appointed government employees have been caught jet-setting to Paris and Tokyo recently. Just like Obama claiming that his current taxpayer-funded reelection campaign blitz and fundraisers are “policy speeches,” when the news about these lavish jet-setters taxpayer-funded trips to Tokyo and Paris reaches the American public, they can expect numerous phony excuses as to why they are supposedly on “official business.” Rob Bluey, of Hot Air.com outed these two taxpayer-abusing, elitist jet-setters as follows:
While many Americans were filling up their tanks with $4 gasoline this week, Energy Secretary Steven Chu was enjoying Major League Baseball’s opening game on a taxpayer-funded trip to Tokyo. Taxpayers were also footing the bill for Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson to spend a few days in Paris.
Chu was outed by The Washington Gaurdian’s John Soloman when he discovered a picture sent by Energy Secretary Steven Chu’s official taxpayer-funded twitter account of a baseball game in Tokyo Japan. Meanwhile, Lisa Jackson, she of this EPA-fame, was in Paris France, to “meet with environmental leaders from more than 40 nations to discuss the Agency’s international efforts on urban sustainability.” Global government, when coupled with so-called urban sustainability and climate change fear-mongering propaganda, are basic anti-capitalistic stealth forms of Socialism, which is dependent on the Marxist principles of wealth redistribution through the overthrowing of established governments to enact social justice fraud.
Lisa Jackson, the lifelong global warming political activist fits right in with the urban sustainability pimps of Europe, which by the way, is in the middle of the worst economic crisis in modern history. All of these anti-capitalist mandates coming out of these types of U/N European Socialistic programs are dependent on one thing for survival: The blatant theft of American wealth to be “redistributed” to the less productive societies of the world through dishonest fear-mongering from globalists and environmental terrorists posing as green-earth saviors. Thus the Obama administration uses taxpayer dollars to fund Jackson’s lavish Paris gig… to further undermine American sovereignty and take away her freedom that has made American freedom the envy of the world for centuries.
Do Americans really want four more years of watching Obama-appointees fly around the world to promote the injection of these types of freedom-robbing European Socialism here in America? When Americans go to the polls in November they have a simple choice: Either vote for American freedom and prosperity through voting for proven conservativepoliticians, or vote for Obama and the Democrat’s poverty-inducing European Socialism-style insolvency. The choice is that simple.
Just when the American government appeared to be maxed-out on the stupidity-meter, along comes Energy Secretary Steven Chu awarding $10 million frigging tax dollars for an “affordable green light-bulb” invention. The problem? It costs $50.00 a bulb for starters. Courtesy of NewsMax, we see just how idiotic and completely out of touch with reality Barack Obama and his lunatic-Liberal appointees truly are:
The good news: The Obama administration has awarded a $10 million prize for a “green” but affordable light bulb that’s available to the public.
The bad news: The bulb costs $50.
The “L Prize” was announced by Energy Secretary Steven Chu last year, to push manufacturers to come up with a green bulb “affordable for American families,” The Washington Post reported. The competition also required parts of the bulb to be made in America.
The L Prize winner is a $50 bulb made by Philips. Similar LED bulbs are going for less than half that cost, the Post reported.
Pay attention to that complete paragraph there. “Affordable green energy” now means paying $50.00 for a retread of an already manufactured bulb, the lunatic Liberal running the U.S. Energy dept. has given away $10 million tax dollars for it, and “parts” of the bulb will be made in America. Oh and similar bulbs are already selling for about half the price. IE: $25.00 a bulb! NewsMax goes on to further point just who started the lunacy of charging Americans $50.00 for a light-bulb:
The $10 million contest was meant to ease the transition away from inefficient incandescent light bulbs to more efficient fluorescent and LED bulbs. President George W. Bush signed legislation in 2007 to phase out the old bulbs.
That’s right, the supposedly conservative Republican G.W. Bush, with a Republican-dominated Congress in 2007 started the ball rolling towards this green energy debauchery and crony-capitalism-inducing thievery that has resulted in a $10 million dollar prize, (paid for with your tax dollars) for a moronic Cadillac light bulb that will cost Americans $50 bucks apiece, and which will be manufactured in foreign countries. ( One part will be made in America, just to fool the uninformed masses)
All of this idiocy and blatant government stupidity, (not to mention the theft of taxpayer dollars under the guise of a “prize”) is brought to you by Barack Obama’s Liberal-lunatic appointee, Steven Chu. Does America really want four more years of this Liberal-lunacy? Note: Should Energy Chief Chu not understand the title of this opinion piece, here is a clue: It involves a place where the sun doesn’t shine.
Sen. Sessions (AL) met with Senate colleagues to discuss Obama’s obstructionist energy policy.
“Why are we seeing such a resistance to production of oil and gas? I believe Secretary Chu may have let the cat out of the bag when he said they really want to eliminate oil and gas as an energy source, and the price is not important to them… What that means is, we can see higher and higher prices, and the average consumers in Alabama and all over the country will pay more. They will pay the price for this social engineering strategy that we’re seeing in this administration. It is just plain as day.”
