Robert Murray says prominent Americans are discussing impeaching President Obama

The direct speaking Robert Murray pulled no punches when he addressed the Bluefield Coal show in West Virginia.

The CEO of Murray Energy, one of America’s largest coal producers, had a lot to say and the word impeachment was one of them during a hard hitting keynote speech to the coal mining industry, as well as to the rest of America.

Murray warned that Obama’s disastrous energy policies are leading America to a European model of energy poverty as evidenced by huge price spikes to consumers in Britain and Germany…

“They are destroying low cost electricity in America for everyone, including our citizens on fixed incomes and our manufacturers of products that compete in the global marketplace.  European countries, particularly Germany went this route with disastrous consequences”

(See: Germany says Solar is path to bankruptcy.)

He backed up Germany’s energy plight with:

“Germany spent 194 billion in the past 10 years on their “green” Obama experiment, including 10.2 billion in subsidies for solar alone. The result is German electric prices have jumped 61% and 15% of German families live in energy poverty. … All of their predictions on the cost of solar and wind power were understated five-fold”

“To make up for German’s energy shortfall created by the loss of nuclear power and the inefficiency of “green” electricity, Germany is currently building 23 new coal-fired electricity generating plants.”

“Mr. Obama’s actions are a human issue to me, as I know the names of many Americans whose jobs and family livelihoods are being destroyed as he appeases his radical environmentalist, unionist, liberal elitist Hollywood character and other constituents.  These folks are my employees.”

Great Britain is another canary in the “green” mineshaft as their citizens’ struggle with huge price increases in electricity:

“Their electricity prices have risen more than than 70% since 2005.  Further, electricity prices are expected to increase another 54% by 2020 … and other European countries are now faced with power blackouts.  Mr. Obama, his supporters and most democrats in Congress will not recognize this.”

(See: Britain quietly tries to install its unpopular windmills in Ireland.)

Murray pointed the spotlight on the actual damage these Obama “green” policies will wreak on America:

 “Mr. Obama’s EPA alone will destroy much of America’s economy, resulting in the loss of 2.15 million jobs and nearly 200 billion in electricity rate increases by 2020, according to recent expert studies.”

If there is a keystone to modern society, it is the availability of relatively cheap and abundant energy and Murray spelled it out:  

“Low cost electricity is a staple of life.  President Obama and his radical appointees are generating a huge crisis for America in what they are doing to the cost and reliability of electric power for our citizens.”

Murray put a personal tie into why he is so passionate about Obama’s disastrous energy policies:

“These good Americans only want to work in honor and dignity.  But when their jobs and those of their neighbors are eliminated in the coal mining areas of America, they have no one to sell their homes to, which is generally their only possession.  Thus these people, who only want to work, are prohibited from doing so and fall to the negative side of the economic ledger for the rest of their lives.  This is not the America that I have always cherished.”

(See: Elite environmentalists tell coal miners to build amusement parks to take the place of their mining jobs.)

Robert Murray ominously closed out his speech with a warning to the President and those who insist on taking America down a path that will eventually lead to disaster for the country:

“Many prominent Americans are now discussing the need to impeach President Obama…maybe you will want to be a part of this effort.”

Tell Congress: Impeach Obama! Sign the petition.

Obama's Administration is bent on weakening America. Murray is right. Since 2008 over 100 new clean coal plants were stopped from construction. This "Avoided" employment of between 300,000 and a Million new jobs. And people complain about the Keystone Pipeline and loss of 20,000 to 50,000 jobs? Then there is nuclear and the storage of high level nuclear waste at Yucca Mountain. Obama doesn't like that either. Nor Hydraulic Fracturing. America's "Good Quality of Life" and our ability to help other developing countries has a lot to do with Domestic Energy Production and use. Over 90% of America's energy comes from traditional fuels of coal, oil, gas and nuclear. about 40% of our energy is used for transportation.
One more thing, taken for granted until a crisis. That is National Energy Security. American Air Defense Systems use a lot of Jet Fuel….So, Americans need to contact your elected officials and tell them in your opinion, "What is Best for America?

Obama is not only killing our energy sources he's killing our medical institutions and the middle class. With the Syrian debacal it's obvious he does not have a clue how to manage our country or its defense. Impeach, Impeach, Impeach! His speech last night was ambiguous at best, he was for it before he was against it again then for it. Say what??????
