I posted the damning video yesterday of the TX EPA Director explains his radical tactics to intimidate gas & oil companies in the fashion of Roman soldiers crucifying citizens to set an example. This blatant abuse of power was put on display, and the Obama regime on the defensive.
Now, as predicted and blatantly obvious they intimidated someone or violated the First Amendment. THE EPA and the Obama regime has had the video scrubbed from You Tube!
Here is the juicy text & video again…..
EPA Region VI Administrator Al Almendariz said that he gave the following analogy to his staff about his “philosophy of enforcement,” which he acknowledged being crude and perhaps inappropriate, but shared anyway: ”It is kind of like how the Romans used to conquer villages in the Mediterranean — they’d go into a little Turkish town somewhere and they’d find the first five guys they saw, they’d crucify ’ em, and that little town was really easy to manage for the next few years.”
Almendariz continued: “And so, you make examples out of people who are, in this case, not complying with the law. You find people who are not complying with the law and you hit ’em as hard as you can and you make examples out of them, there’s a deterrent effect there. And companies that are smart see that. They don’t want to play that game, and they decide at that point that it’s time to clean up. And that won’t happen unless you have somebody out there making examples.”
