Here Come the Green Police! DHS Launches ‘Environmental Justice’ Units

HOMELAND SECURITY DEPARTMENT VOWS TO FIGHT ‘CLIMATE CHANGE’ AND ‘MELTING ARCTIC ICE’

Sleep well tonight, America. The ever-vigilant Obama Regime stands at red alert in its unflinching effort to protect you, your loved ones and life as you know it. From “climate change” and “melting Arctic ice.” Uh huh. The epic battle is on – and  O’s Army is all over it – just like Dennis Quaid in The Day After TomorrowWhere would our nation be were it not for Barack Hussein Obama’s extraordinary aptitude for keeping his priorities straight? Other countries should be so fortunate.

Not a minute too soon, the Department of Homeland Security has announced that it is creating “environmental justice” units that will be empowered to oversee regulations in conjunction with local governments throughout the country. The framework for the Environmental Justice Working Group includes eleven federal government agencies, including the TSA, the Secret Service and FEMA. Go big or go home, right?

In its just-released Environmental Justice Strategy document, the DHS says the idea is to “include environmental justice practices in our larger mission efforts involving federal law enforcement and emergency response activities” and to incorporate environmental justice in “securing the homeland.” Roll that around in your head for awhile:

“Federal law enforcement” agents conducting “emergency response activities” in the name of “environmental justice” for the purpose of “securing the homeland.” The Green Police. Oh. My. God.

Lest you think these people are crazy as a loon, (which they are), here’s the official explanation from the Regime:

Our nation’s vision of homeland security is a homeland that is safe and secure, resilient against terrorism and other hazards – where American interests and aspirations, and the American way of life can thrive. In seeking to fulfill this vision, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) aspires to avoid burdening minority and low-income populations with a disproportionate share of any adverse human health or environmental risks associated with our efforts to secure the nation.

What a complete crock of crap. Since when is terrorism a mere “hazard,” – comparable to environmentalist wacko-ism? The “American way of life”? As defined by whom – Barack Obama, Al Gore and the rest of the greenies? And – why must the Divider-in-Chief single out – as he always does – “minority and low-income populations”? And their “disproportionate share”? That “efforts to secure the nation” part is hysterical as well. How low of a common denominator are these people playing to?

The DHS document also lists concerns such as “climate change” and “melting Arctic ice,” despite recent reports confirming that the amount of floating ice in the Arctic’s Bering Sea “reached all-time record high levels last month,” according to the US National Snow and Ice Data Center. Then again, liberals never let facts or data get in the way of “securing the nation” according to their agendas, do they?

Memo to O: If you’re so interested in securing the nation, why do you continue your incessant efforts to divide its people? Why do continue your relentless drive to mortgage the future of “the nation’s” grandchildren – all for the self-serving reason of pandering for votes?

In the event that you missed Audi’s Green Police ad during the Super Bowl, check out this glimpse of things to come – courtesy of the courageous Barack Hussein Obama – without whom, America may very well have been denied the Chevy Volt.

Something tells me Steve Zwick will be the commissioner.

Hell, the O-man reduced NASA to little more than a Muslim-outreach program – why shouldn’t he straighten out the Secret Service, too? Besides, they’ve been somewhat distracted lately anyway.

I can see the television series now – a Maxwell Smart or Barney Fife character – riding a Segway – as he battles diabolical conservatives hellbent on destroying the planet’s environment. Must-see TV.

  1. What’s that saying; something about tragedy always repeating itself as farce..?

  2. When I saw your caption “Green Police” I thought you were talking about aliens from space. Instead you were talking about aliens from Washington, DC.

  3. Maybe, if the “poor, minorties, and disadvantage” hurry out they can stock up on the new light bulbs that are reqired for their “huts” they live in. Use them as anyone would, as the environmental hazard/grendade that they are to ward off the green police when they come a calling. Homeland securtiy, which is run by who? Oh I know the Presidente’s IDIOT, Senorita Janet Napolitano. Now there is a real wise choice.

  4. Will repost in a few places, Rat. Thanks for pointing this out, although I think I’m going to barf in my Cheerios.

    • I’m giving you some link love on Conservative Daily News. This one goes in my “scare the living daylights out of me first thing in the morning” file.

      • Thanks, Rogue. Between the two of us, there’s plenty more where that came from, eh?

      • Rat, I thought about this article and it doesn’t strike the right tone I want before my BlogCon conference. I will give you some link love when I get back (I won’t forget). I actually think your piece is better than mine, by the way. Let me bring this back up, maybe in the form of a satirical piece this Monday or Tuesday. Hope you understand, Kyle

      • By the way, I think I can generate more traffic for both of us with a Satirical/Humor piece. Best, K

      • Samia, it’s obvious you didn’t blame Bora and I’m sorry if you thhogut I was talking about you: I should have been more precise in my comment. (Hey, , and I sometimes don’t even finish reading my OWN posts.)Yes, Bora’s post is long: 8300 words. There’s certainly nothing wrong with reading it in multiple sessions. In fact, that’s probably the better way to do it. But I’m with Glendon: it’s worth every sentence. There’s a hell of a lot more there than “farewell.”

  5. This is why taking both houses is so critical regardless of which narcissist wins the big seat. We must install a large enough group of spines to at minimum corral this Cult of Personality.

  6. These GreenKops channel the Keystone Kops of yore no doubt; government is reliably stupid…but in their sutpidity, what will you bet their assault rifles won’t fire real bullets?

  7. I shoulda taken the Blue pill.

  8. This is abuse of power plain and simple. We already have oversite and protections in place. What’s next home audits? Fines for eating meat? Prosecution of those who have large screen TVs?

  9. Windy,
    Well, no, the minorities that have big screen TV’s will be exempt.

  10. No, that’s “History repeats, first time as tragedy, second time as farce, third time as Jersey Shore.”

  11. To be further discussed at the next tribal meeting…

  12. Paul Blart, Mall Kop, writ large.

  13. Really? I call you out for your passing off a non-green initiative issue as one…one that wasn’t even begun by Obama, and you remove the post? Nice integrity…lol

    • And that would be which post?

      Love the predictable “Obama didn’t start it” silliness, by the way. Spoken like a dutiful card-carrying Obamanite.

      • I removed one. It was in violation of the site’s terms and conditions in regards to comments. Rat, you can find it in the ‘trash’ if you so desire.

      • Thanks. Sounds to me like that’s exactly where it should be.

      • Well, it’s deleted now. Sorry, I didn’t see any terms and conditions.

        Anyway, DHS is only reacting to Executive Order #12898 which was issued in 1994 by Bill Clinton. The EO had the term ‘Envorinmental Justice’ in it. This is nothing new.

        This EO was applied to the TSA in 2001 and first to DHS in 2006. Both well before Obama was in office.

        The only thing you can complain about is the adding of the term ‘Climate change’ to one of the areas the DHS will cover in their report later this year.

        This is hardly some nefarious green police initiative as you falsely claim.

        Obama has many things to take issue with. Sadly, this ain’t one of them.

      • See ‘commenting policy’ on the sidebar. Once we get past name-calling then we are able to attempt to have an actual, adult-style conversation about things. Even with people who may disagree with us. T-Mo you adapted fairly quickly and I appreciate that.

        Conclub- bringing civility to the internet one comment at a time…

    • Stacy please give us an udatpe on your situation. I’m sorry I’ve been absent for quite a while and just now saw your post. Perhaps we can network to find homes for your little darlings how many do you have left? Can you post pictures?16 is a large litter! Best of luck to you & your babes I’m looking forward to hearing more from you.Best ~ Dana

  14. Are these assholes armed ?
    Quisling scumbags serving our domestic enemy, this is where your tax dollars are going, to create more repression.

    Yank lll

  15. Maybe this is why DHS just placed their order for 450 million rounds of .40 cal ammo? Oh, those are man-killer rounds, not practice. Hollow points, not ball. Keep vigilant, citizens.

  16. Just better targets with the bright green-The skinny little bastard in Washington just crossed another line but it will get delt with like the rest of his illegal crap

  17. Well, the “Green Police” are about to have more to deal with than they could conceive… if they were formed to actually protect our environment.

    But, of course, their real purpose is TOTAL GOVT CONTROL …

    Below is an urgent warning from Oath Keeper Maj Gen Bert Stubblebine (US Army ret). It is his Estimate of Situation regarding the escalating disaster emanating from the ruins of the Fukushima reactors:

  18. Why don’t you start by regulating fracking for Natural gas? That’s the number one hazzard to soil safety and human and animal poisioning.

  19. Secure the nation??? Really? Start securing the borders then! Someone get Obama into rehab and leave him there.

  20. Environmental justice generally is shorthand for the practice begun back in the 19th century — and maybe earlier — of dumping waste and pollution in poor neighborhoods.

    Do you disagree that we, as Americans, have a responsibility not to overly burden the poor with toxic and harmful industrial and municipal waste?

    Which sorts of pollution do you allow in your backyard?

    • Ed, are you one of those guys who thinks that part of NASA’s mission is Muslim outreach as well?

      Environmentalism is like a watermelon; green on the outside and red on the inside.

      • Notice how the guy comes to one of two conclusions: Conservatives are always either stupid or EVIL when they disagree with enlightened liberals. This is why I blog, people.

        Is there another possibility? You’ve made up a completely false charge, or you’ve been suckered by someone else. Heck, you even have a link here to the original memo. I challenged you to show us where the memo offers anything more than “coordination” between branches of the agency.

        Not up to the task? Or you knew all along it wasn’t there, and you’re pretending you didn’t get caught brown-handed?

      • Ed, are you one of those guys who thinks that part of NASA’s mission is Muslim outreach as well?

        No, that would be The Rat, more likely. I can read. I watched the whole interview at al Jazeera. I can read NASA’s organic act. I’m not that stupid.

        Environmentalism is like a watermelon; green on the outside and red on the inside.

        As opposed to anti-environmentalists, who are, like Lenin’s work at Novosibirsk, brown through and through.

        If Lenin had an environmental cell in his body, you wouldn’t sound so much like a barking fool. Pick up a history book sometime. Pick up an environmental history book sometime. You’d blush, if you could.

      • I’m a lifelong student of history so the ‘pick up a book’ part is amusing to say the least. You continue to display your ignorant stereotyping at every turn. Quite embarrassing for you I’m sure. If you’d try harder to not be a knee-jerk apologist for Obama and his agenda we might actually get somewhere in actually having a discussion. But the typical elitist mentality and obsessive need to slander your opponents is part and parcel of the liberal mind and always a stumbling block when dealing with members of the cult of progressivism. Sad, but predictable.

        Collectivism and, in reality, the concentration of power is at the heart of true Marxism. So try to keep up.

      • Dave said:

        I don’t find it amusing that someone who claims to be a student of history confuses matters so much. If you’re such a great student, you know of course that there is absolutely zero link between Lenin and environmentalism. None. Conservation and environmentalism instead grow out of capitalism, and has been led by outstanding capitalists like Laurence Rockefeller, Teddy Roosevelt, Abraham Lincoln, Stewart Mott, Gifford Pinchot, and others.

        Surely you erred, and you now know better, I hope. A lifelong student would be happy to confess the error, no?

        You continue to display your ignorant stereotyping at every turn. Quite embarrassing for you I’m sure. If you’d try harder to not be a knee-jerk apologist for Obama and his agenda we might actually get somewhere in actually having a discussion.

        If you were not a knee jerk . . . or maybe just a jerk . . . you could point me to anyplace I have defended Obama’s agenda. All I’m pointing out is that the original claims were complete fabrications. There is no green police. The Homeland Security memorandum is not a masterpiece of English language, but neither is it anything to be alarmed about.

        One is never embarrassed calling the bluff on hoaxes. Once you read the memorandum, you should be embarrassed. But then, you should have been before now.

        But the typical elitist mentality and obsessive need to slander your opponents is part and parcel of the liberal mind and always a stumbling block when dealing with members of the cult of progressivism. Sad, but predictable.

        Got a mirror? I politely called the bluff. You took off with the slander — in fact the entire post above is slander. Shame on you for promulgating slander, and then claiming not to. Chutzpah, much? Murder your parents and then claim you need mercy because you’re an orphan?

        The post is shameful, and defending it with faux outrage is no better. If you wish your thoroughly brown-ness not to be called to attention, retract your unwarranted slander at watermelons and environmentalists. But don’t carp when you can’t take the heat.

        Collectivism and, in reality, the concentration of power is at the heart of true Marxism. So try to keep up.

        Then you must be duly embarrassed by the collectivism demonstrated on the right with the sheep-like repetition of this worthless and completely unsupported claim that there are green police, no?

        Don’t adopt the methods of the Soviet propagandist and claim to be innocent, please.

        As a Reagan administration appointee, I urge you to stick to the facts. They may be stubborn, as Mr. Reagan sometimes pointed out, but in the long run we live better by them, if we honor them.

        There is enough wrong with the world that we don’t need to make stuff up whole cloth to get worked up about. There is enough injustice without perpetrating new injustices for fun, or supposed political advantage.

        Green police? Nope. None. Harmful memorandum at Homeland Security? Not this one saying that the policy is opposed to unfair dumping of toxics on the poor and disadvantaged. Do you truly support policies to the opposite? Then the moral burden, and shame, is on you.

      • Short answer again for you Ed: Collectivism and, in reality, the concentration and centralization of power is at the heart of true Marxism. The state is god, and has the right to interfere with, regulate, and control every aspect of your daily life in the name of the ‘common good.’

    • “Environmental justice generally is shorthand for the practice begun back in the 19th century — and maybe earlier — of dumping waste and pollution in poor neighborhoods.”

      You obviously meant to say that “environmental justice” stands against the practice to which you refer.

      Call me “skeptical,” but isn’t it a bit “coincidental” that the Class Warfare Warrior-in-Chief “just happens” to add environmental “injustice” to the wrongs heaped upon the “less fortunate” by evil rich people and equally-evil corporations?

      Nice try. Thanks for playing.

      • No, it’s the policy of the U.S. not to dump toxics on minorities or anyone disadvantaged. Of course, one needs to know what one is talking about to know that, or at least read the memorandum.

        Confess, The Rat, you didn’t even bother to read the memo through to see what it does, did you. Nor did you have a clue what “environmental justice” meant. It’s not clear from your post: Did you think that Audi comedy advertisement was, instead, a documentary?

        If you don’t have any respect for the flag that we sing to before the game, AND you don’t know how to play, please politely absent yourself from the field until you figure out which way is up.

      • Looks like we have a new troll, CL.

        The government’s definition of “environmental justice” is:

        The fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people – regardless of race, color, national origin, educational level, or income with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws.

        Environmental justice seeks to ensure that minority and low-income communities have access to public information relating to human health and environmental planning, regulations and enforcement.

        Environmental justice ensures that no population, especially the elderly and children, are forced to shoulder a disproportionate burden of the negative human health and environmental impacts of pollution or other environmental hazard.

        Not sure what part of that definition – which is summarized in the post itself – is inconsistent with your president’s obsession with tying everything he possibly can to the plight of the “less fortunate.”

        Your smugness wasn’t lost on those of us who expect nothing less. Again – thanks for playing; I’ll “absent” myself from this response now.

      • You absented yourself from your original post — there’s no logical connection between the Audi ad from 2012 and the environmental justice memorandum from the Department of Homeland Security. And despite all your bluster, there’s not a hint of any action on anything in that memorandum.

        You claim to be doing a bit of political writing. In polite society, you have an obligation to get the facts right, at least not to tell outright lies about people and policies. Surely, were you present, you’d not be saying the things your post says.

        So, is there anything new under the sun? You make astonishingly brash and unhinged remarks, then you refuse to make corrections of fact when the facts are pointed out.

        All I did was ask whether you could back up your claims. Is that smug? In my businesses, that’s called “honesty” and “due diligence.”

        You could learn a lot about those practices, and it would improve things for a lot of people.

        So, not only do you appear incapable of understanding a simple governmentese memorandum, you now look smug in that idiocy — or worse, conniving in your dissembling.

        Stupid, or evil? You won’t be around to answer.

      • As it were, Ed; I’m done.

        Notice how the guy comes to one of two conclusions: Conservatives are always either stupid or EVIL when they disagree with enlightened liberals. This is why I blog, people.

      • And you are right Ed, we are just so plumb uneducated due to the public school system that we couldn’t figure out that clip was a commercial or a a documentary.

        “Gee wiz, Vern, that Ed fellar from the interweb is so darn tootin’ smart. And that high falutin’ boy has a pretty mouth to boot…”

      • What’s funny Ed, it that on your blog about 2 posts down from where you reference this post you are yelling hysterically about GOP senators as TRAITORS complete with dark plots to deliberately destroy the American economy etc. Now we appreciate your comments, but you carry about as much credibility with us as we do with you.

        We may have to agree to disagree as to whether the Obama crowd is a bunch of power-grabbing, rule by decree, enviro wackos or merely valiant champions of the unwashed masses. I guess we’ll have to all judge for ourselves.

      • What’s funny Ed, it that on your blog about 2 posts down from where you reference this post you are yelling hysterically about GOP senators as TRAITORS complete with dark plots to deliberately destroy the American economy etc. Now we appreciate your comments, but you carry about as much credibility with us as we do with you.

        Difference being that the plot is not denied by the participants, nor even the harm it may cause. What I posted — with a question mark, inviting your factual rebuttal (but of course, you have none), was written by a distinguished, award-winning political reporter. It’s based on fact, not imagination.

        Reality does seem to be biased against you. It’s the old Lena and Ole joke about everyone on the freeway driving the wrong way. At least Ole had the sense to stop on the shoulder.

      • At least we aren’t driving this nation off a cliff…

      • Glad to hear you say you’re not doing that any more, Dave. Still, Teapublicans and even Mitt Romney promise to head straight for the rocks if they win in November. I’ll feel better when Nancy Pelosi is sworn in as Speaker on January 3.

      • We can only assume you jest Ed when you say something like that. I didn’t realize you were such a humorist at heart. Pelosi is about as unhinged a person as you can find in politics.

  21. Once again folks, DHS is only reacting to the provisions of an executive order from President Clinton from 1994. They also reacted to it in 2006. This is nothing new. And the only Rat here is the one playing on your fears of Obama to further his agenda. There are no armed DHS agents coming to your home to make sure you are recycling…or whatever he is trying to get you to believe.

    • Hey, T-Mo; can you spell s-a-t-i-r-e?

      Damn, loons – lighten up. I realize that you people are ultra-sensitive about your president these days, but take a deep, collective breath. (not the definition of “collective” with which you normally identify as it relates to your political views.)

      Again – we thick-headed conservatives find it more than a little “coincidental” that the O-man has managed to work class warfare into the environmentalist movement nonsense – irrespective of the fact that the order has been bounced around since 1994. As a matter of fact, that makes my point even stronger, doesn’t it? It took Barack Hussein Obama to bring it to the forefront.

      P.S. Memo to loons: I included the Audi ad in the post because it’s applicably FUNNY. I realize how puckered up you people are, but RELAX.

      • Whatever. Conservative playbook 101. When you get busted trying to play to the base with complete BS…immediatedly play the “Satire”, “Joking”, etc. card. You’re all alike. Especially in your immediate assumptions that I’m some mindless follower of Obama. Believe me, he’s done plenty wrong. But baseless attacks like this are going to be called out for what they are. Sorry. You got caught. Just have some integrity and move along. Your original intentions were crystal clear. As evidenced by your lack of a response to above posters falling for your supposed “satire”.

      • It’s obvious that you have not read my articles in the past. Trust me, it will take more than what you’ve shown us to “bust me.”

        I love it though, I really do.

  22. BTW. is this “satire”

    [/i]“Not a minute too soon, the Department of Homeland Security has announced that it is creating “environmental justice” units that will be empowered to oversee regulations in conjunction with local governments throughout the country.”[/i]

    Were these not in fact started in 1994 per the EO? (Realizing of course that DHS wasn’t founded until just after 9/11)

  23. Yeah…apologies for the confusion. Somebody linked your story on another message board so I came on over as it was pretty easy to smell his BS as he tried to pass it off as fact. When it really only proved his ODS.

    • You people and your ideological blinders…Don’t ever say the modern-day Paul Revere’s didn’t warn you of what is coming and where we are headed.

      Sometimes you just want to grab and shake someone and say “Do you not understand what is going on? Do you not see the hand-writing on the wall? What’s wrong with you?” But I doubt it would do much good when it comes to the Obamanites hell bent on ushering in the utopian nanny-state. Frustrating and sad.

      Ed keeps griping about reading the memo. Did he? I found it ridiculous, alarming, worthy of derision and all the attention it has received due to this post. The smothering, big government agenda that is dead set on regulating, monitoring, directing, and interfering in every aspect of your daily life is alive and well. And growing. The spotlight needs to be shone upon such things so they can be opposed with both words and deeds.

      The Rat routinely uses a bit of humor, satire, and yes, even a funny superbowl commercial to make some very good points about the progressive/socialist agenda and the Obama administration on a routine basis. He should be commended for it.

      • They think they’re going to get to be part of the in crowd. Michelle Malkin’s site has a good cartoon, showing the Occutard’s not figuring out yet that they are pawns. Not claiming that anyone posting in this thread is part of that movement, it just fits well with your comment.
