EPA Promises to “Crucify” Foes of Global Warming Junk Science (Video)

Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) released this video today. In the video, an Obama EPA official promises to “crucify” potential foes of the EPA who disagree with the agency’s war on fossil fuel.

Heritage has more on the video

A video surfaced on Wednesday showing a regional administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency comparing his agency’s philosophy with respect to regulation of oil and gas companies to brutal tactics employed by the ancient Roman army to intimidate its foes into submission.

EPA’s “philosophy of enforcement,” said EPA’s Region VI Administrator Al Armendariz, is “kind of like how the Romans used to conquer little villages in the Mediterranean: they’d go into little Turkish towns somewhere, they’d find the first five guys they’d run into, and they’d crucify them.”

“That town was really easy to manage for the next few years,” Armendariz added.

His comments are indicative of the “EPA’s war on fossil fuels,” claimed Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) in a news release on Wednesday.

Senator Inhofe added, “Armendariz’s comments give us a rare glimpse of the Obama administration’s true agenda.”
Yes they do — Disagree with the far left on global warming junk science and you’ll be crucified.
Let’s face it. These people are out to destroy America.

    Maybe Mr. Armendariz might be one of the five lucky ones in his own home town. One could only hope for such an outcome.

    The EPA needs to ban all EPA employees from using fossil fueled vehicles now!

  • Amazingly arrogant.

    Again, I point out there are 88 million of us and less than 60,000 of them- 9/10’s would stand to one side.

    You and others think you can stop this train?

    America can only stop this train one way: that way is outlined in Joel chapter 2, the latter half of the chapter.


    Otherwise, the first half of the chapter is our fate.

    So that is what these windmills are for…..global warming heretics shall be nailed to the windmill blades.

    Such incredible irony that the word ” armendariz ” is derived from ” arm and hammer ” and means in urban dictionary terms ” one who beats homosexuals to death ” ..> http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=armendariz

    The only way to stop this train, upon whose tracks we’re currently, and tightly, bound:

    Joel 2:12 Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:

    13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.

    14 Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the LORD your God?

    15 Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:

    16 Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.

    17 Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?

    18 Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people.

    Because that train ain’t stopping, otherwise. It’s accelerating.

    Joel 2:29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.

    30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.

    31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come.

    32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.

    Party of peace and bipartisanship? Not so much. The language he uses reveals a lot about the level they will go to. They are depraved. Remember–per Obama, “if they bring a knife, we bring a gun”.

    Mr. Almandariz is illiterate in history, the Turks
    were a wandering nomadic people and there
    was NO TURKEY during the Roman era!
    The area was Greek. It became Byzantium
    in 657 BC, and wasn’t conquered by the Turks
    until 1453 AD.

    This mindset isn’t confined to the EPA. It’s the Stalinist reflex and it rules everywhere in this administration.

    Mail Online

    Scientist who said climate change sceptics had been proved wrong accused of hiding truth by colleague…

    It was hailed as the scientific study that ended the global warming debate once and for all – the research that, in the words of its director, ‘proved you should not be a sceptic, at least not any longer’.

    Professor Richard Muller, of Berkeley University in California, and his colleagues from the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperatures project team (BEST) claimed to have shown that the planet has warmed by almost a degree  centigrade since 1950 and is warming continually.

    Published last week ahead of a major United Nations climate summit in Durban, South Africa, next month, their work was cited around the world as irrefutable evidence that only the most stringent measures to reduce carbon dioxide emissions can save civilisation as we know it.

    It was cited uncritically by, among others, reporters and commentators from the BBC, The Independent, The Guardian, The Economist and numerous media outlets in America.

    The Washington Post said the BEST study had ‘settled the climate change debate’ and showed that anyone who remained a sceptic was committing a ‘cynical fraud’.

    But today The Mail on Sunday can reveal that a leading member of Prof Muller’s team has accused him of  trying to mislead the public by hiding the fact that BEST’s research shows global warming has stopped.

    His “research concentrations” involve the danger of mercury in soils.

Al Armendariz has a fixation on Global warming while millions are out of work and now energy is cleaning than ever thank to those who have diligently worked years before Obama and his minions came into “flunky leadership”

    American Citizens are armed and able to resist Dictatorial orders. These “elite” Communists seem to forget that Police and Military Personnel are American Citizens too, with American families.

Also, a little prick like this tinhorn would be among the first to pay the price for his crimes.

    You know in China they just round up a few corrupt petty tyrants guilty of hoarding food supplies that were supposed to go to starving peasants, and they line them up against a wall and shoot them with rifles….By just executing a very small number of immoral government officials…..the entire public sector work force becomes much easier to manage. They don’t have to worry so much about public funds being wasted on hookers and 3 day parties and bogus solar panel deals that line pockets of friends and family.

    On another Note:

    Hide This Chart From the Kids
    Democrats and, to a lesser extent, RINO’s have perpetrated the greatest act of fiscal child abuse ever seen on Earth:

    Runaway spending on Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security will drive federal debt to unsustainable levels over the next few decades. Total national debt consists of publicly held debt and intergovernmental debt. Intergovernmental debt is the amount that the government owes to specific programs or agencies, such as the Social Security Trust Fund. Publicly held debt is more relevant to credit markets.

    History proves — beyond a shadow of a doubt — that no country can survive these levels of debt.

    And when thoughtful people propose reforms — like George W. Bush’s 2005 Social Security reform plan and Paul Ryan’s Path to Prosperity Budget Plan — they are demonized and demagogued as “pushing Grandma off the cliff”.

    Unless we remove the Cloward-Piven Democrats from office — and force RINOs to hew to the Constitutional line — this country is headed for collapse, as surely as night follows day.

    November is coming.

    Look, before I even type the rest of this, I know the Hitler references are frowned upon, and viewed as unfair. And often that is true. But this little punk Armendariz cannot simply be dismissed as an annoyance. He is a prime representative of the same totalitarian mindset as the Nazi regime. Control, punish, crush, grind the opposition under the heels of jackboots. No tactic is off limits in the quest for the glory of the Third Reich… er… I mean the Imperial Obama Epoch.

  • maryd


  • an observer

    EPA’s Region VI Administrator Al Armendariz described how the Romans pacified territory they conquered. The Romans wanted the riches of the lands they captured. They wanted the profits, the taxes, the trade. This means that the Romans wanted to limit the destruction to just the amount necessary to pacify what they conquered.

    A war of conquest differed from a punitive war. Punitive wars were designed to punish, if not destroy enemies, usually external. Sometime they were in retaliation against raids by non-Roman enemies, sometimes to punish a rebellious province. The scope was far more than crucifying the first 5 men they saw; it could include crucifying the entire village and maybe the neighboring ones as well. It could include the total destruction of food sources with the deliberate goal of starving everybody to death. Call it “total war.”

    The term “sowing with salt” wasn’t just a motto, it was a punitive action.

    So, EPA’s Region VI Administrator Al Armendariz is describing a “war of conquest” by the EPA against “foes of global warming” (the oil and coal companies).

    I think that after President Romney takes office, he should introduce EPA’s Region VI Administrator Al Armendariz, Lisa Jackson, and all of Obama’s political appointees to the other “Roman Way”: Total war. I think that they should all be fired; some should be prosecuted. I think their pensions be confiscated, and they (and any family members) be prohibited from working for ANY GOVERNMENT, GOVERNMENT FUNDED/SUBSIDIZED or LOBBYING organization for the next 10 years.

  • tj

    I think this guy has a point… After the elections we should “crucify” five federal government agencies. Pick the top 5 most useless agencies (That’s going to be tough to narrow it to five!!!)… and totally defund the agencies.

    Wow.. maybe that will be a lesson for some of these other agencies…

    GSA and Secret Service are headed to the top of the list so far.. but EPA , NLRB , HUD.. and DOJ have got to be up there too

    We have to STOP PAYING people to do this to us!
