Anti-Drilling MA Attorney General: We Don’t Need No Pipelines

Is it us, or does it seem like all Democrat politicians have dictatorial aspirations? Obama clearly does. If he doesn’t like what the Constitution says, he just makes up his own Executive Orders–Constitution be damned. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is the same–just strip away the Constitutional property rights of everyone in his state by instituting an illegal frack ban. New York’s Attorney General, Eric Schneiderman, is the same. He’s abusing his office in an elaborate government shake down of fossil fuel companies like Exxon Mobil–rubbing his hands together at the thought of forcing them to pay him billions. Here’s another prominent Dem to add to the list: Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey. She’s appointed herself an expert on whether or not New England needs new natural gas pipelines to carry Marcellus Shale gas to the region. Yes, we know–an Attorney General should have nothing to do with such a decision–but that’s life in the People’s Republic of Massachusetts. Healey doesn’t care a whit about the free market or capitalism–she personally wants to control every aspect of the lives of New Englanders. But Dems like Healey know that unless you’re Obama with a group of gutless Republicans in Congress who won’t hold you accountable, you can’t get away with just ruling by fiat. You have to convince (i.e. hoodwink) people. So Healey has to go to the trouble of making things up. Here’s her latest: She just released a “study” to say New England’s electric supply over the next 15 years will be just fine without new natgas supplies to power electric plants–so long as everyone keeps their thermostats turned down to 50 degrees in the winter and layers up with three or four sweaters (that’s always the Dem solution). The study (full copy below) is, of course, a joke. It was created by a group of people with glaring conflicts of interest…
