Latest Agency Obama Uses to Push His Socialist Politics On the Nation? FEMA

This is so insane I don't even know what to say.

If I thought this Administration were clever, which I do not, I would guess that they are specifically using FEMA as their newest clawhammer for authoritarian lawlessness because they want to rile up conspiracy theorists to say conspiracy-theory type things. (In case you don't know, there have been FEMA conspiracy theories for almost as long as there has been FEMA.)

But I don't think they're doing that.

I think they're just trying to destroy the American system of ordered liberty.

FEMA to deny funds to warming deniers

States whose governors refuse to acknowledge climate change will not get preparedness aid.


The Federal Emergency Management Agency is making it tougher for governors to deny man-made climate change. Starting next year, the agency will approve disaster-preparedness funds only for states whose governors approve hazard-mitigation plans that address climate change.

This may put several Republican governors who maintain that the Earth isn't warming due to human activities, or prefer to take no action, in a political bind. Their position may block their states' access to hundreds of millions of dollars in FEMA funds. In the last five years, the agency has awarded an average $1 billion a year in grants to states and territories for taking steps to mitigate the effects of disasters.

"If a state has a climate denier governor that doesn't want to accept a plan, that would risk mitigation work not getting done because of politics," said Becky Hammer, an attorney with the Natural Resources Defense Council's water program. "The governor would be increasing the risk to citizens in that state" because of his climate beliefs.

The aid in question is for pre-disaster preparedness -- preparing for hurricanes, floods, etc. It's not about the aid that follows a disaster.

Even so, Obama is now threatening people's lives unless they sing his Cult's hymnals.

AllahPundit wonders what Chris Christie will do about this. He thinks that even Christie will be strongly inclined to oppose Obama's latest burst of authoritarian fascism.

I can't wait until a Republican president uses the same lack-of-any-authority to conditional all federal dollars for children's health upon governor's certification that abortion is now illegal in their states.
