Inhofe calls for Senate probe of EPA's illegal human experiments

Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) issued this press release today calling for an investigation of illegal EPA human experiments uncovered by American Tradition Institute.

In the wake of the Obama – Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) being sued in federal court for allegedly conducting illegal human experiments – exposing people to concentrated high levels of fine particulate matter (PM2.5) and diesel exhaust – Senator James Inhofe (R-OK), Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, wrote a letter to Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, to request that the committee hold hearings to get to the bottom of what exactly happened at EPA.

“It is extremely disturbing that EPA may have conducted illegal human experiments, exposing people with conditions such as asthma and metabolic syndrome to concentrated high levels of substances like fine particulate matter and diesel exhaust,” Senator Inhofe said. “EPA has repeatedly said that these substances can cause cancer and lead to death so if these allegations of human experiments are true, it just validates the problem that the Obama-EPA’s mission is not about public health.

“I am calling on Senator Boxer to hold hearings on this matter immediately when Congress returns. As the Committee of oversight over EPA, it is crucial that we get to the bottom of this and hold EPA accountable.”

Obama's 'green' energy zaps the poor

Washington Examiner senior editorial writer Phillip Klien writes today, in part:

Last week, Examiner columnist and Manhattan Institute fellow Diana Furchtgott-Roth, author of the new book “Regulating to Disaster: How Green Jobs Policies Are Damaging America’s Economy,” explained that:
Most people think green is good but pay little attention to associated increases in costs. In 2015, it will cost between $49 and $79 to generate one megawatt hour of electricity from natural gas. A megawatt hour from onshore wind will cost between $75 and $138, and from solar photovoltaic will cost between $242 and $455.
As her book demonstrates in this chart, rising costs of energy hit lower income Americans the hardest, because they spend a higher proportion of their incomes on energy:

Obama overturns U.S. law, sells weapons to kidnappers of child soldiers

"(F)or the third year in a row, Obama has waived almost all U.S. sanctions that would punish certain countries that use child soldiers, upsetting many in the human rights community," Foreign Policy magazine reports.

"Late Friday afternoon, Obama issued a presidential memorandum waiving penalties under the Child Soldiers Protection Act of 2008 for Libya, South Sudan, and Yemen, penalties that Congress put in place to prevent U.S. arms sales to countries determined by the State Department to be the worst abusers of child soldiers in their militaries. The president also partially waived sanctions against the Democratic Republic of the Congo to allow some military training and arms sales to that country."

"After such a strong statement against the exploitation of children, it seems bizarre that Obama would give a pass to countries using children in their armed forces and using U.S. tax money to do that," Jesse Eaves, the senior policy advisor for child protection at World Vision, tells FP.

Obama's decision to arm child kidnappers undermines the work of the international community, which has been working to disarm and arrest warlords who kidnap and force children to fight to the death -- using weapons supplied by Barack Obama.
