In Past 90 Days Obama Admin Posts 68 New Regulations Each Day

In keeping some of the most controversial environmental and healthcare regulations under wraps during the month of October, the federal government has posted to its regulations website an average of 68 new regulations and notifications. The total comes to 6,125 in the past 90 days as of Friday November 9!

Penny Starr reports,

The thousands of entries run the gamut from meeting notifications to fee schedules to actual rules and proposed rule changes.

In recent days, for example, the EPA posted a proposed rule involving volatile organic compound emissions from architectural coatings: “We are approving a local rule that regulates these emission sources under the Clean Air Act (CAA or the Act),” the proposed rule states. “We are taking comments on this proposal and plan to follow with a final action.”

Another proposed rule will provide guidance for FDA staff on "enforcement criteria for canned ackee, frozen ackee, and other ackee products that contain hypoglycin A." (Ackee is the national fruit of Jamaica; unripened or inedible portions can be toxic.)

Some of the proposed regulations revise regulations already on the books.

The website also links to a video of a speech President Barack Obama gave at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington, D.C. on Feb. 7, 2011, in which the president promised to remove “outdated and unnecessary regulations.”

Barack Obama said “I've ordered a government-wide review, and if there are rules on the books that are needlessly stifling job creation and economic growth, we will fix them."

Tony Lee at Breitbart writes:

These regulations are hardly those that would be deemed "economically significant" (regulations that would have at least a $100 million impact on the economy), but now that Obama has been reelected, many more of such "economically significant" regulations will be rolled out in the coming weeks and months.

These are unnecessary regulations that have no real impact except to produce bigger government, but not to actually help anything. The posts range from dealing with "volatile organic compound emissions from architectural coatings" under the Clean Air Act to a 12 month finding that deals with the endangered status for the Acuna Cactus and the Fickesian Plains Cactus as well as designation of the critical habita. These things are simply more evidence that the federal government has no intention of slowing down its pace of expansion and no doubt we will be reading about certain funding going towards these regulations and agencies that will have to deal with them in next year's Wastebook.

    Obama is growing government exponentially and it isn't going to stop until we are all employees of the government. But then who is going to pay the salaries of all of these government employees? Socialism is not a self-perputating system!!!

    WASHINGTON, July 18 (UPI) -- President Obama
    told Congress Wednesday he is extending for one year the national
    emergency with respect to significant transnational criminal

    July 24, 2011, by Executive Order 13581, I declared a national
    emergency pursuant to the International Emergency Economic Powers Act to
    deal with the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national
    security, foreign policy and economy of the United States constituted by
    the activities of significant transnational criminal organizations,"
    Obama said in a statement.

    activities of significant transnational criminal organizations have
    reached such scope and gravity that they threaten the stability of
    international political and economic systems. Such organizations are
    becoming increasingly sophisticated and dangerous to the United States.
    They are increasingly entrenched in the operations of foreign
    governments and the international financial system, thereby weakening
    democratic institutions, degrading the rule of law, and undermining
    economic markets. These organizations facilitate and aggravate violent
    civil conflicts and increasingly facilitate the activities of other
    dangerous persons," the president said.

    said because the organizations' activities "pose an unusual and
    extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy and
    economy of the United States," Executive Order 13581 must be extended
    for one year.

  • retiredmillwright

    Just like Germany voted in Adolf Hitler and all his lies,
    America has voted in Obama and his lies. What we are going to have now are the
    results of this terrible mistake and it isn’t going to be nice. America is
    going to get what they voted for, pure socialism, administered by Obama and his
    circus. I hope America can live over this but I am not sure it will.

    • Rosie46

      But we did not vote for it. Fraud left him in office.

      Speaking of polluted to extinction, folks believing that carbon dioxide is a pollutant should act upon their believe and stop exhaling. They'll still have carbon footprint, but at least it will be shovel ready. Like oxygen and water vapor, carbon dioxide is part of the photosynthesis cycle and without carbon dioxide for plants, there would not be oxygen for animals, including humans. Next time you hear or see "Save the planet", adding "from stupidity" might be warranted.

  • Melissa Frost

    He has broken the law since these we supposed to be released last April and Oct., before the election. Why does he get away with breaking the law?

  • Truth

    We are not going to hear about the money spent on these and other executive Orders obama creates because they never produce a budget. There has not been a budget in 4 years and there will not be one in the next 4 years either.

    • davdun

      Sometimes the Executive Order addresses the money projected to be spent. As an example, the EO Obama signed on 6/25/2012 for Russia to continue converting Highly Enriched Uranium to Low Enriched Uranium was came with a $280 million price tag. The program was started by an EO signed by Clinton in 1993 as a 20 year, $2 billion program that was to end in 2013. (~ 100 M/ year). The internet doesn't show much of a trail, but in 2005 about half of HEU had been converted and then the print trail went dormant. Logic seemed fuzzy for adding an additional $280 to the program in what was supposed to have been its last year. Just 2-3 months after "secretly" letting Putin know there would be more flexibility on arms control after re-election, but surely Obama is not that Machieavellian (sp) enough to seed campaign contributions from foreigners using taxpayer money. Around August Putin announced Russia's breaking away from the existing arms agreement and how that affected the HEU to LEU program and the money is in question. The program per the EO was to be managed by the Obama's DOE head and he should know the answers.

  • wizardkar

    Time to Impeach Obama, now if only we had representatives with any guts! Just wait, he wants a 3rd and 4th term!! He does not think the Constitution exists except when it suits him..we are screwed, there will be a war and we will all be left to rot just like those suffering from Sandy storm. Here comes the pay check fairness act! The Progressives have a permanent voting block unless we can stop those on welfare and government sibsidy from voting!!! That's the ticket!!!

    • Rosie46

      And the non-citizens -- legal and illegal. Obama has so divided this country and expanded the welfare and food stamp rolls that he is buying votes with our money and our futures. He is handing our sovreignity over to the UN in every way possible. We are on the verge of a third world country -- after a banana republic election of a dictator.

    • oldcoyote

      Where's James Earl Ray when we need him??

  • Rick

    I'm worried about where we are going!

    • oldcoyote

      I am too Rick but more for our younger generation. I only have a couple years left at the best.

  • Dean

    What has this country come to?

    • CJeanne

      Obama and his cronnies are taking over the US governent, by unrest, ruling in favor of behaviour which is generlly considered immoral (homosexualiy, abortion, the ends justify the means, broad lberal ideas incorporated into schools. contributing to socialists governments, invitings countnries with poor civil rights rules into the UN, prohibiting guns, encouraging social unrest, dividing the country into racial and cultural fractions, and belittling God and religious believes and practices, playing buddy buddy wit mass media to get their support and influence people, conviscating land, firearms, vehicles......... This has been going on for some time, and is th first part of communist take down of a country. With all obama's involvement with his red diaper baby friend, ideas of 'spreading the wealth" awhich will align us to 3rd world country class - is coming. He keeps talking about the middle class but communists countries only have the poor and the party leadrs who are rich. The middle class are killed after they're no longer useful!!!r
      He lies and covers up!!! When he gets as much money pulld from the middle class as he can heill kill us Why do you think HHS brought millions of those hallow bullets.
      THIS IS ABSOLUTELY SERIOUS; these are all hdden agenda, and that's why he had to assue there was so much fraud in the election.; can you imagine polling booths having 140% of registered votes voting, and all of them going to Obama!!!! Happened all over US, especially Ohio, Florida, Wis, Penn, Virginia....swing states. I just saw film where computer technician told Ohio Supreme Court of having been asked by elected officials to "rig" the voting machines........ Then all these strings were pulled to prevent military people from voting, and MOST veteran votes did not get back in time to be counted.
      And "Forward" Obama's slogan is a Communist slogan used by several Comunist leaders.......
      People wake up - I am not imaginging this!

    • oldcoyote

      Obumer is doing exactly what his jew handlers tell him to.

    • wizardkar

      Careful, I am Jewish and I NEVER vote DEMS!! No need to be rude nor aleinate others. As for Soros, he renounced his Judaism and worked for Hitler and he is running the show. That is why our tax dollars in the billions went to him and his Brazil oil! See the movie Obama's 2016 and you will have all the answers you need.

    • Nellie CA

      There is some great books on WW1, WW11 and how Hitler took over Germany and killed the Jewish people. This history is suppressed in Muslim countries! Hitler took over Germany, he by passed Parliament, appointed his own people, death, prisoners or fired who didn't follow his orders, demoralized the Military @, Police. Had his own police and Military! Debt, exclusive orders! The Government owned everything! They took everything from the people. Castro did the same thing to Cuba.

      We need to back Israel! I have found a lot of college professors and students, Jewish have voted for Obama. I can't figure out why!

      google GM jobs in China and other foreign countries. and Brazil

      The Military ballots that were not counted should be counted and who ever was in charge of these ballots getting to the center should be in prison. If this makes a difference in the election, Obama should step concede. GOD BLESS OUR MILITARY AND OUR COUNTRY. PRAY FOR OUR ENEMIES. Israel

      LOVE THE.USA!!

    • Rosie46

      The fraud that is coming out now is disgraceful. Makes you wonder if we should not have the election again using paper ballots, lots of security and voter ID required, along with observation of all absentee ballots. Read about the electronic voting PA and Ohio, and as usual Florida is a mess with the fraud there. Welcome to the election of a dictator in a banana republic.

    • oldcoyote

      It's odd that Eisenhower, Churchill and DeGaull all wrote their memores right after the war and none of them mentioned even one word about the biggest lie ever told. Eisenhower was a jew and Churchill was half or more jew.

    • walt1976

      You are so right the movie open my eyes to things I thought I knew and so much I did not know. Everyone needs to see the movie I just wished a lot more would have seen it before the election.

    • Patriot

      I am sorry for that person's ignorance.
      I saw 2016 and have recommended it to everyone I know. Most should have seen it before the election............not that that would have prevented things like Florida's 140% vote. The nggr king rigged the elections and kept the military from voting who would have voted 2 to 1 against him.

    • oldcoyote

      Once a jew, always a jew. The Lying, Thieving and Hate never leaves.

    • phunyfarm

      Educate yourself. You are WAY off base here. Even old coyote's can learn something.

    • patriot

      Jew handlers????? nggr king is a black hitler. The Jews have not done anything to us. I don't know why anyone would say "jew handlers"........
      We are more in danger from our arab and black "friends".

    • oldcoyote

      Would jew puppet masters make you feel better. He takes his orders directly from them.

    • JohnHD

      I feel sorry for you oldcoyote, you are so twisted in your mind that you see things that are not there. Obama has no connection with the jews as you suggest. In fact he has been sponsoring the Muslims, and he is more firmly attached to them psychologically.

    • Joan Humphrey Dodds

      Actually if you go to it will tell you he only passed 183 executive orders! please get your facts straight before you blow off your mouth!

  • ARMYOF69

    They are not working very hard right now, their goal is 550 in that time frame.
