The best President ever blocks oil drilling in the Atlantic and Arctic oceans. The planet thanks you President Obama.

U.S. President Barack Obama on Tuesday banned new oil and gas drilling in federal waters in the Atlantic and Arctic Oceans, in a push to leave his stamp on the environment before Republican Donald Trump takes office next month. 

Obama used a 1950s-era law called the Outer Continental Shelf Act that allows presidents to limit areas from mineral leasing and drilling. Environmental groups said that meant Trump's incoming administration would have to go court if it sought to reverse the move. 

The ban affects 115 million acres (46.5 million hectares) of federal waters off Alaska in the Chukchi Sea and most of the Beaufort Sea and 3.8 million acres (1.5 million hectares) in the Atlantic from New England to Chesapeake Bay. 

Trump, who succeeds Obama on Jan. 20, has said he would expand offshore oil and gas drilling. A recent memo from his energy transition team said his policy could increase production in the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas, as well as the mid- and south Atlantic. 

A Trump representative did not immediately comment on the announcement. 

That is what you call "checkmate" Cheeto Hitler.

 And you know it's a good deal because Sarah Palin absolutely hates it.

Damn first Obama signs a bill protecting my people from harassment, and then he bans oil exploration to protect my state from being brutally raped by the Trump administration.

That's it, President Obama just moved to the top of my Christmas list.

What size Alaska t-shirt do you think he wears?

    President Obama Erects a Firewall Against Trump’s Plan To Wipe Out Environmental Protections

    "Because of new and legally inventive strategies, Mr. Obama… may well have built firewalls around environmental policies that could hold off his successor."

    Love that photo of our President!! And, he has done the right thing as far as I'm concerned. For the environment especially!

    Oil is NOT needed - we have other sources now for our energy!

    1. That is a beautiful photo that captures the serene beauty of the universe and the man.

      The only use for oil in the next 10 years should be to grease the machine that lowers Trump into a very final grave.

    Republicans Are Reportedly Too Scared of Breitbart and Hannity To Challenge Trump

    Today, the latest media buzz claims that GOP lawmakers don’t want to challenge President-elect Donald Trump because there are so many online trolls waiting to attack them if they do.

    Politico ran a story this morning about the online abuse Representative Bill Flores suffered after Breitbart and a smaller right-wing blog twisted his words about Trump. He said that some of Trump’s policies might not align with the party’s values but he was sure they could work together. That somehow became a headline that read, “BREAKING: Rep. Bill Flores Has CRAFTED a PLAN to BLOCK Trump’s Immigration Reform.”

    Before releasing that particular post, a blogger reached out to Flores and advised him to get ready “for a shit storm,” which is exactly what came his way. Sean Hannity signal-boosted the Breitbart report by giving it air time on his radio show and soon, Flores was under attack online.

    Now, Republicans on the Hill don’t want to be the next to get pounced on, so they’re staying quiet about any misgivings or questions they have regarding Trump. Politico pointed out that by tearing into someone online, the trolls are taking a cue from the President-elect himself.

    2. If all of them stood up for what is right, then Breitbart and Hannity would lose their power! Too bad they are so scared that they no longer will work for America, not that they did much before. I think I'd quit before I'd keep my mouth shut about Trump and his plan to destroy our country.

    PLus Sara better realize that the oil companies would much rather drill in the new oil patch in Tx.
    And, because she is an idiot, Sara has no fucking clue that the USA is part of OPEC so we are on a nat'l market anyway. Plus at under 2 bucks a gallon it's not practical to drill anywhere near Alaska when the land around Odessa/Midland is so accessible and the workers are already there.

    I said it before and I will say it again. Trump winning is like Scar from the Lion King taking over the land after killing his brother. The land is left to the hyenas. But then we all know how that Walt Disney cartoon turned out. In the end good wins. It may come with a price but even if our generation doesn't overcome all our obstacles, the future generation may.

    I just envisioned the scenario of Trump and his billionaire and millionaire friends sitting around a table discussing the presidency some years back. They concocted this idea that the people that voted for Trump felt this separation from the old country. (The U.S.) They wanted the Harriet and Ozzie days back. And Trump used that to incite them. We all know that, yes. But I think this whole Trump presidency was in plan all along. They knew Trump had a big mouth and could say the atrocious things he said so they put him up front. Now the band is in play. We see how long they last. Hitler caused a lot of misery but he last what seven years? It's long if you're a victim in this travesty but I think in the end after the chaos then the healing. Which at this point and time in America's history is a big pain in the ass since we were just almost healed from Dick Cheney and baby Bush's fiasco. No accountability whatsoever.
    Trump should just bankrupt us nice n good. He'll come out protected but the asshats that voted him won't. But it really riles me that Putin had a big part in this and no one seems too outraged. I'd watch that guy if I were all of you. He has a bone to pick with America. Trump doesn't give a shit about our constitution or country. He's trying to continue getting rich. In the end they say, our coffins are all the same size.

      Since he is putting people in charge who seem to have the exact opposite views of the departments they will run, who will he put in charge of the VA? Cheney, with his five deferment? I know he is considering one guy who wants to privatize it. Agriculture is still open, which includes US Forestry Service. Maybe the head of Monsanto or Weyerhaeuser? The President of Chipotle or yhe pharma Bros as head of yhe fda?
