Although the shooting incident across the Rio Grande from El Paso garnered news, another war is also underway in Texas. This is the war between the regime’s EPA regional director Al Armendariz and the authority of the State of Texas. In the latest salvo, Armendariz pulled the permits for two refineries in Texas City. His action was essentially that of the fedgov empire countermanding the authority of the State of Texas.
Armendariz was an engineering professor at SMU prior to his appointment. Besides Texas City refineries, he also pulled permits on Flint Hills in Corpus Christi and over 121 other facilities across Texas. Armendariz’s territory contains over half of the nation’s refineries. His pulling of permits and countermanding State authority puts the nation at risk in terms of energy availability. His actions are also based on his interpretation of the Clean Air Act. Armendariz’s actions come after initially threatening to pull the permits on 40 refineries. It seems that he made good on his threat and then some, right in the middle of the BP crisis in the Gulf of Mexico. The pulling of permits amounts to the fegov taking over the regulation of these 122 facilities.
His action of pulling permits does not immediately shut down the plants, but rather forces them to submit to the application process again. This is bureaucracy at it finest. The empire is declaring war on the sovereignty of Texas. During a time when jobs are scarce, the regime takes action to loose many thousands of other jobs in Texas. Although Perry is furious over the situation, it remains to be seen what actions will be taken by Texas in the ‘undeclared war’.
The empire hates Texas as shown by its actions. (Remember the regime’s refusal to help Texas with the border, while sending some to Arizona?). The Union of States is making it clear that Texas is not wanted the way it is. They will only allow us to play if we vote how they want us to and remain emasculated in terms of economic recovery. They do not want us to have any advantage in terms of hard work or skills.
Liberty for Texas and the South!
