Friends of Ex-EPA Official Al, Crucify, Armendariz? Stop the Frack Attack Rally Planned 7/28/2012
Let see, Al Armendariz of "crucify" fame went under the Obama Bus on April 30th after Sen Inhofe released a video of Armendariz's remarks and also announced an investigation over this incident. Before I continue, here is some background info on Mr Armendariz from Energy Indepth I think is important:.
One of Armendariz’s original claims to fame — or infamy, perhaps — was his paper in 2009, which found that “the oil and gas sector likely has greater emissions than motor vehicles” in the five counties comprising the Dallas-Fort Worth region (“emissions,” in this case, referred to nitrogen oxides [NOx] and volatile organic compounds [VOCs]). That paper, written while Armendariz was a professor at Southern Methodist University, was widely celebrated by activists, who — possibly as a “thank you” to the professor — actively pushed for Armendariz to be appointed Administrator of EPA’s Region VI office. Upon assuming office, groups like the **Sierra Club celebrated, calling it “great news” because the industry was “having an ‘oh sh–’ moment” about the appointment Other shale opponents, including area resident ***Sharon Wilson, appeared happily in pictures with Armendariz.Back to the fracking, pun intended, rally. Note the date on the media release:"Help stop the frack attack

Concerned Citizens Announce Date for the Largest Fracking Rally in Washington, DCMr Armendariz resigned on the 30th of April and two days later environmental activists connected to him announce a rally. Coincidence? I think not. The website is registered to Earthworks and lo and behold here is a statement from **Sharon Wilson, at her website, regarding Mr Armendariz's resignation. Note who she organizes for: Gas Mafia Wins Again, Beloved Dr. Al Has Resigned

EPA Region 6 Administrator Dr. Al Armendariz
350.org especially looked interesting. Every environmental group you can think of appears somewhere on the list of organizations behind this. And Soros, naturally.
Another protest to look forward too. I hope by that time Sen Inhofe's investigation is further along. Besides, what's with Obi Wan? Blasphemy!
