It doesn’t take much to melt liberal snowflakes and in Trump’s case, it only took 8 simple words to light a fire under them that they won’t soon forget. While Obama totes the line that America is now lacking TRUE LEADERSHIP (as if he knows what that even is), he seems to miss the bigger picture.
From Allen B West:
Do you hear that? Yes, if you listen carefully you will hear the collective deranged apoplectic ranting of the global progressive elites. President Donald Trump withdrew from the Paris climate change agreement — yes, agreement. This was not a ratified treaty brought before the Congress of the United States, just another piece of the Obama liberal progressive economic agenda. And since Barack Obama unilaterally signed onto it, he’s no longer president, so it has been dismissed.
Perplexingly enough, Barack Obama released a statement on the withdrawal –no, he will not just go away:
“The nations that remain in the Paris agreement will be the nations that reap the benefits in jobs and industries created. I believe that the United States of America should be at the front of the pack. But in the absence of American leadership; even as this Administration joins a small handful of nations that reject the future; I am confident that our states, cities, and businesses will step up and do even more to lead the way, and help to protect for future generations the one planet that we’ve got.”
What’s amazing is how Obama never took a leadership role in the real fight for the future of generations against Islamic jihadism…where he led from behind.
Here are the true facts about the Paris climate agreement: –
According to a study by NERA Consulting, meeting the Obama administration’s requirements in the Paris agreement would cost the US economy nearly $3 trillion over the next decades. By 2040, our economy would lose 6.5 million industrial sector jobs, to include some 3.1 million manufacturing jobs. Our coal industry would be decimated, which Obama had as an intent, that provides some one-third of our electrical power. – Obama committed $3 billion of US taxpayer funds to the Green Climate Fund which is 30 percent of the initial funding for this agreement, without Congressional authorization — talk about unconstitutional actions! In essence, the United States taxpayer is the one subsidizing the jobs and industrial growth of other nations…while we went from $10.67 trillion to $20 trillion of debt under Barack Obama. – America, without the Kyoto protocol and the Paris agreement, has already reduced its carbon-dioxide emissions dramatically. Since 2006, CO2 emissions in America have declined by 12 percent, and are expected to continue to decline. The US is now a global leader in oil and gas production and we are indeed the Saudi Arabia of coal. And thanks to the hydraulic fracturing technology increasing our natural gas production, we are moving towards lessening those emissions…but the religion of the left despises fracking. – Obama’s Paris agreement does nothing to the two major contributors to global climate change (assuming you believe that in the first place): China and India. China does not have to comply until 2030, and India has made its participation in the Paris agreement contingent on billions of dollars being given to them in the form of subsidies.
Trump stated one simply thing that sums up what we need in a leader quite nicely and to the point:
“I am the president of Pittsburgh, not Paris!”
Well done Mr. President! God Bless America!
