As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Supreme Court Blocks Obama Climate Change Rule

The Supreme Court by a 5-4 decision temporarily blocked President Obama from proceeding with regulations designed to limit greenhouse gas emissions from power plants.

A lawsuit filed by 29 states is challenging the rules, and the High Court decided that the regulations should be placed on hold while the suit is before a U.S. court of appeals, which will hear the case this summer.

The ruling is a victory for Republicans and the coal industry, which is gravely threatened by rules that would force states to shut down coal-fired plans in favor of those that produce energy with natural gas and wind.

The ruling means two of Obama’s key unilateral, executive-action initiatives — this and another on immigration that would provide amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants — have been halted by the courts.

  1. Thank goodness. To shut an industry down that is woven into the fabric of America to continue the notion of global warming is bordering on criminal. Let’s kill the economy even more to support “green energy” so this idiot can have a legacy. Please stop helping me waste more of my hard earned $ on more expensive energy. Idiots.
