Climate Gestapo

And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgment of all wrong
They decide and the shotgun sings the song
--The Who

Another aspect of DOJ lawlessness has been agency attempts to use law enforcement resources to stifle debate on global warming, a.k.a. climate change. In particular, energy companies such as Exxon (XOM) have been threatened with legal action for issuing statements that oppose the Obama administrations energy agenda.

Such action, of course, is a blatant violation of the First Amendment.

Now, five senators have written AG Loretta Lynch and demanded termination of all related DOJ activities. They also want an explanation of what steps the DOJ will take to prevent the infringement of the rights of US citizens who disagree with prevailing climate change orthodoxy.

My sense is that the louder and more visible this pushback becomes, the worse its gets for the administration and the Democratic Party in an election year.
