EPA Eclipses Parent Government

So much for the separation of powers. Thanks to federal court rulings, even if Mitt Romney prevails in Nov., he will be hard-pressed to unilaterally rein in regulatory overreach by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). However, no agency of government should be bigger than the President of the United States and the members of Congress who are elected by the people.

Is the EPA Colluding With Environmental Radicals?

Is the EPA Colluding With Environmental Radicals?

The Environmental Protection Agency has been a lightning rod for controversy during the Obama Administration as they have pushed the applications of the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act to their limits in seeking to control all land use across the nation. One area that hasn’t received as much scrutiny, but reeks of old-style influence peddler politics is the Agency’s escalation of sue and settle cases to change the law through federal court decree operating hand in hand with radical environmentalist groups that are willing participants in the scam.

EPA Hazing the Coal Industry into Bankruptcy

EPA Hazing the Coal Industry into Bankruptcy

The goal of the EPA’s Regional Haze Rule is the “remedying of any existing impairment of visibility” at 156 National Park and Wilderness areas throughout the U.S. Congress approved of this amendment to the Clean Air Act in 1977, however, power to set standards of emissions was left to the states—not the EPA. The EPA’s role was to simply provide support. Now the EPA seems to be trampling on the state’s authority to control emissions standards by creating its own set of standards. Is the EPA really that concerned about cleaning up haze or is this just another aggressive move to push out the coal industry?

Obama Holding New EPA Regs Until After Election

Call it an election strategy. President Obama is sitting on numerous regulations, coming from the Environmental Protect Agency (EPA), Agriculture Department and even those concerning worker safety that will likely have to wait for approval until after the elections. While it’s common to back off from pursuing controversial legislation or regulations during an election year, it creates a troubling outlook of what we can expect if President Obama wins a second term.

EPA Again Tramples Common Sense, Private Property Rights

EPA Again Tramples Common Sense, Private Property Rights

Dexter Lutter was expecting an award; instead he got a $20,000 fine. He made environmental improvements on his land — his farm — by taking steps to clean up the water supply and better preserve the soil, but the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers fined him for his efforts. “That’s how out of touch I am,” Lutter says. “I feel like we should have won a medal for what we did, but the EPA tells us we were wrong.”

Global Warming Myth More Credible During Summer

Global Warming Myth More Credible During Summer

As the predictable morons of doom, the global warming extremists, climb out of their dormancy like 13-year cycle cicadas to declare the heat to be proof of their faith, it is fair to remind readers that these same “experts” assured us that when the D.C. area was hit with a massive snow storm dubbed Snowmaggedon a couple of years back that the blizzard event was just weather and should not be analyzed too much.

Freedom Showdown at the OK Corral

Freedom Showdown at the OK Corral

Tombstone, Ariz., has seen its fair share of showdowns—Wyatt Earp at the O.K. Corral among the most famous. But there’s a new kind of showdown going on and it’s one the whole town—and the rest of America—can’t afford to lose. This showdown has come down to citizens vs. government agencies.

EPA: Instrument of Tyranny

EPA: Instrument of Tyranny

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is really nothing short of an instrument of tyranny. As I wrote about some time back, Chantell and Michael Sackett bought some land and were proceeding to build their dream house…when fascists from the EPA came in and shut them down. The reason? They were supposedly building on some ephemeral “wetland.”

Raising dust, raising corn, raising cows–and raising cane

Farming issues are confusing, especially for city folks. But when it comes to restrictions coming from Washington and from groups that are setting out to save the planet, both city and farm folks really should get excited and raise some cane about those “do-gooders.”
