Obama’s Blocking Of New Power Plants Triggers Nationwide Blackouts

The rolling blackouts now being implemented in Texas and across the country as record cold weather grips the United States are a direct consequence of the Obama administration’s agenda to lay siege to the coal industry, launch a takeover of infrastructure under the contrived global warming scam, and help usher in the post-industrial collapse of America.

Planned power outages conducted by utility companies have caused outrage amongst officials at four major hospitals in Texas, at Parkland, Baylor, Methodist and Presbyterian Dallas.

“Because of the sensitive life-saving equipment, hospitals are considered “critical care facilities,” and supposed to be exempt from rolling blackouts,” reports CBS 11. “That’s exactly what Presbyterian Dallas was led to believe. “We were of the understanding that hospitals and other critical-care providers were not supposed to be affected by planned outages,” said hospital spokesman Stephen O’Brien.”

As well as hospitals, nursing homes, fire stations, police stations, other emergency response facilities have also been hit with outages as demand soars due to freezing temperatures. Many places in Texas now rely on Mexico to supply their power.

“Mexico’s state electricity company on Wednesday started supplying electricity to the US state of Texas, where demand shot up amid unusually cold temperatures and caused power outages,” reports AFP.

Hospitals are supposed to be exempt from the blackouts which hit yesterday, with power company Oncor attributing the outages to a “mistake,” but there were no such mistakes when it came to supplying power to Cowboys Stadium. The government has ensured that the blackouts will not affect Super Bowl venues, a decision that has left residents furious.

At least, that's the Texas power companies' official statement. It sounds to me like they didn't plan for the extra usage during the cold snap and storm, and want to blame someone else.


No rolling blackouts in Michigan. The storm damaged some power lines, but they've been fixed by now, even in third world Detroit.

Wow that sounded so much like a Satanicus dumb response. His stonewalling of NEW plants has made it hard for the companies to meet the expanding need of the populace. There is Demand, but Supply isn't being allowed to meet it.

Let's read it together.


The inability of power companies to meet demand is almost exclusively a consequence of the Obama administration’s publicly stated goal to bankrupt the coal industry and in turn ram through the de-industrialization of America under the guise of the phony global warming mantra.

So according to this, something the Obama administration has done, since January of 2009, is "almost exlcusively" at fault.

This would imply that Obama's admin has either shut down power plants, or prevented the building of power plants that would be online right now. Do you think that is the case?

Online soon and his EPA has been stopping already approved coal mines. Do you want to live in the stone age?

OK, and I'm asking if there would be any power plants online right now which have been blocked by Obama. I'm not defending his views or even commenting on his views, I'm exploring what Alex Jones is claiming to be the case, because it doesn't sound plausible. Obama would have had to have shut down an existing plant or stopped ongoing construction, would he not? It's hard to imagine that it takes less than two years to build a power plant.

Quick google searches answers questions. Learn to do it.

He's also outlawed a very useful tool in Nuclear Energy that lets us recycle a good chunk of used fuel because it creates a bit of "waste".

Big Stone II was having problems long before the Obama administration took office.

However, as it was not expected to be completed before 2012, then its cancellation cannot be the cause of energy shortages in the present.

There has also been the restriction of new mines, and other things as well. That was just one link I pulled up. Keep on looking.

Hey, I despise Obama, and this may be a view of things to come with him. But, this ain't his fault, the power Co. screwed the pooch on this one. Obama screws himself enough without make up stuff.
