Supreme Court puts Obama’s power plant regs on hold

by  |  published on February 10, 2016

A divided Supreme Court on Tuesday abruptly halted President Obama’s controversial new power plant regulations, dealing a blow to the administration’s sweeping plan to address global warming.

In a 5-4 decision, the court halted enforcement of the plan until after legal challenges are resolved.

The surprising move is a victory for the coalition of 27 mostly Republican-led states and industry opponents that call the regulations “an unprecedented power grab.”

By temporarily freezing the rule the high court’s order signals that opponents have made a strong argument against the plan. A federal appeals court last month refused to put it on hold.

The court’s four liberal justices said they would have denied the request.

    obama and his liberal minions including the hateful liberal media jackals have destroyed more jobs and lives than any other rotten to the core liberal president.

  • All of those people out of work. Just bc we have a Muslim President, a lunatic running our lives. I have never believed he will leave. It will take a strong armed man with a crowbar to get him out.

      There exists a perfect crevice to insert the crowbar to split him in two, facilitating an easy removal, forthwith. Carry on!

    Clean coal technology is the obvious answer for a fuel that is overly abundant in this country, why abandon it? It’s virtually impossible for alternative sources of fuel to fill a fossil fuel gap, it’s foolish to think otherwise.

    Last year 40% of the world’s energy came from coal. 65% of the world’s coal reserves is subbituminous [low-ranking] and therefore be upgraded prior to combustion to reduce moisture and minimize environmental impact. Standby because Clean Coal Technology will be unleashing the world’s first scalable and economically viable Coal Dehydration Technology.

    4 liberal judges? 3 of these 4 are not liberal but are anarchists and should be tried for treason. Unpopular now, but Joe McCarthy singlehandedly stop a communist takeover of the USA and later made out to be a demon. What he did was stop the evil power grabs by communist infiltrators such as 3 of the supreme court justices.

      Government is at war against the Constitution. The issue is betrayal of allegiance – TREASON!

      Congress has the sole powers of legislation (law), impeachment, impeachment trial, and treason penalty, (Article 1 Sections 1-2-3 & Article 3- 3! Congress IS “nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law.” and “subject to arrest for treason or felony (Article 1-6)! Amendment 14 Sections 3 “No (oath bound) person shall … hold any office… (who has) engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the (Constitution), or given aid or comfort to (its) enemies…” and 4 “…neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States…”! Congress is not only absolutely empowered to enforce that Supreme Law, but each individual congressperson as well as official and judge are allegiance mandated to enforce it against any enemy, including SCOTUS should any engage in opposition to constitutional authority (insurrection), rebel against it, aid/abet, or betray allegiance! Congress is in total rebellion… overthrowing the Constitution!

      Obviously Citizens have individual Supreme Law civil and criminal court rights in their every jurisdiction by jury against any violator of their supreme rights, where any law or enforcement to the contrary is NOTWITHSTANDING (Article 6). It is past proper time to demand those rights in every court, which includes taking criminal and punitive measures against officials and/or judges who obstruct such suits or fails to defend and enforce the exact Supreme law text!

    The right decision for a change.
    Scary to think that we are just one heartbeat away from Obama succeeding with his plan to kill what’s left of our employment base and economy.

    • And when the Republics giving us a horse and pony show with the Keystone, and then saying they didn’t have enough votes to get through a veto? Then apparently we have some wolves in the hen house and I can think of a big one…McConnell.For his reelection he famously said,”I will rip Obamacare out by root and by branch. LIAR. Ted Cruz was right, is right and is the only one out there fighting the modern mob that is our government today. His proven record of voting by and for the people by the Constitution. Obama votes for the corrupt UN!

        What do you expect from a Muslim Kenyan who despises this country, wants to destroy it, and is doing everything possible to effect that?
