Obama Triggers Blackouts, Says Alex Jones

Pin It

Record cool temperatures and severe blizzards have forced some towns in TX to institute rolling blackouts in order to conserve energy. Nevertheless, according to provocateur talk-show host Jones on his website Infowars, this “climate apocalypse” comes straight from the top. President Obama theoretically activates the blackouts of lights, the coal sector, the Internet (via a “kill switch”) and the entire post-industrial U.S.

The real story about Obama

Death + Taxes reports that a 12-second video clip is what the “Obama activates blackouts” rumor comes from. Obama is in a clip on Info-wars which is from his days as a senator of Illinois. The interviewer asks for Obama’s stance on proposed cap and trade legislation on carbon emissions and how it would impact the coal industry, a known producer of greenhouse gases. The following is taken out of context from the full 2008 conversation which can be viewed on YouTube in what Jones calls the Obama administration’s industrial warfare where Sen. Obama states:

“So, if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can, but it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.”

If you’re to look at the full interview, you’ll know what Sen. Obama’s true intentions are. He didn’t think that coal energy should be lost by the U.S. He was simply speaking in theoretical terms of how cap and trade could encourage coal power providers to work harder to store and re-purpose carbon emissions, rather than spewing it skyward. The industry is not being attacked as much as the idea of motivating change.

The truth on other pursuits also

The cap and trade system never passed. Also, blackouts aren’t triggered by the Obama administration. Why does Alex Jones think Obama has power since the administration has already been criticized for not being able to regulate all the energy businesses? There isn’t any kind of environmental legislation. That means industrial carbon emissions don’t even get checked. There are several scientists upset about this because of the climate change brought on. This includes the giant Midwestern blizzard that just occurred. Excess greenhouse gases warm the Arctic, which scientists believe might lead to colder, snowier winters among the northern mid-latitudes.
