Under Trump, your puddles will belong to you

In May of 2015, the Obama administration made one of its more shocking and unacceptable power grabs with the EPA’s Waters of the United States rule.  

This rule defined almost all fresh water, including puddles, to be subject to federal oversight and regulation.

President Trump is going to reverse the rule probably this week.

Judge Napolitano explains the depth of the problem with this rule.

A new sheriff is at the EPA


The new EPA administrator, Scott Pruitt, told a crowd of career bureaucrats that the EPA will follow the law, not invent it.  

This will be a dramatic departure from the EPA of the last eight years under Barack Obama, who used the agency to regulate massive swathes of land, water and resources, placing them out of reach of state control.

President Donald Trump’s executive orders will officially be rolling back the Obama-era policies on climate change and water pollution and Pruitt intends to implement the changes.

There’s a new boss in town

And the Obama Sheeple know it.  According to Hot Air,  EPA employees were so upset after Trump won that they had to take sick leave.  And a few days ago, an unnamed employee reported more than a few friends were still coming to work in tears.


But for those who are more committed to science than to politics, things are looking up.  In December, the House Science, Space and Technology Committee issued a report on their investigation into the firing of an Energy Department scientist.

The committee determined there to be an institutional disregard for separation of powers that amounted to “a reckless and calculated attack on the legislative process itself, which undermines the power of Congress to legislate.”

“Institutional disregard” is a polite way of saying that the Obama administration was so determined to have its own way that it actually forbade Energy Dept scientists from giving Congress information about their work and fired one who gave Congress information requested.

Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, chairman of the committee, said, “In this staff report based on lengthy record before the committee, much has been revealed about how senior level agency officials under the Obama administration retaliated against a scientist who did not follow the party line.”

“Moving forward, the department needs to overhaul its management practices to ensure that Congress is provided the information it requires to legislate and that federal employees and scientists who provide that information do so without fear of retribution.”

18 Major Scandals in Obama’s ‘Scandal-Free’ Presidency


They’re saying “Obama’s presidency was scandal-free” but that don’t make it so.  Here’s a short list from Breitbart of the many scandals Team Obama would like us to forget:

The great “stimulus” heist: A trillion dollars wasted on economic “stimulus” spending that created virtually zero private-sector jobs.  A great deal of that money apparently vanished into thin air.

Operation Fast and Furious: The Obama administration’s insane program to arm Mexican drug lords resulted in the deaths of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agent Jamie Zapata, plus hundreds of Mexican citizens.

AG Eric Holder held in contempt of Congress: Holder was the first sitting member of any president’s cabinet to earn this distinction.  Of course, Democrats closed ranks behind Holder, the White House protected him, and the media allowed him to spin the contempt vote as mere “political theater.”

ObamaCare: Everything about ObamaCare is a scandal, from the President’s incessant lies about keeping your old plan if you liked it, to Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s insane statement “We need to pass it to find out what’s in it.”

Spying on journalists: Establishment media came about as close to falling out of love with Barack Obama as ever when his administration was caught spying on journalists.

The IRS scandal: A highly politicized IRS admitted to selectively targeting conservative groups, then brazenly lied about not having backups of relevant computer data.

Benghazi: Libya was a disaster after Obama’s unlawful military operation. Ambassador Christopher Stevens was sent into a known terrorist hot zone without sufficient security. And the Obama administration knowingly told a false story during the first few weeks after the attack.

Hillary Clinton’s secret server: She perpetrated her email offenses while working as Obama’s Secretary of State and he knew about it.

The Pigford scandal: The abuse of a program meant to compensate minority farmers for racial discrimination exploded under Obama.

NSA spying scandal: Snowden’s pilfering of sensitive National Security Agency data was a debacle that damaged national security. President Obama and his administration made many false statements as they tried to contain the political damage.

Bowe Bergdahl:  The prisoner swap that freed him from the Taliban and its allies was riddled with lies, illegal activity, and bad judgment.

Iran nuclear deal and ransom payment: Everything about Obama’s dealings with Iran has been scandalous, beginning with his silence while the Green Revolution was brutally put down by the mullahs in 2009. The Iran nuclear deal was pushed with lies and media manipulation. The infamous pallet of cash that wasn’t a ransom has become symbolic of Obama’s mendacity and penchant for breaking the rules, when he thinks following them is too much trouble.

Polluting the Colorado river: The Environmental Protection Agency managed to turn the Colorado River orange under this greenest of green Presidents. Of course there was a cover-up.

The GSA scandal: The General Services Administration was caught wasting ridiculous amounts of taxpayer money on lavish parties and silly projects.  Of course there was a cover-up.

The VA death-list scandal: Veterans were put on secret death lists while executives handed in phony status reports and signed themselves up for big bonuses.

Solyndra: Billions of taxpayer dollars were wasted financing companies with absurdly unrealistic business models, because the owners had supported Obama’s campaign.

Secret Service gone wild:  Agents hiring hookers in Columbia, a fence jumper penetrating the White House, and tipsy Secret Service officials driving their car into a security barrier.

Shutdown theater:  Obama hit the American people hard during the great government shutdown crisis of 2013, doing everything he could to make American citizens feel maximum pain – from using “Barry-cades” to keep war veterans away from their memorials, to releasing illegal alien criminals from detention centers.

Washington Prepares for Trump’s Executive Eraser

Trump’s determination to tap his executive authority next year in all its many forms will demand sharp legal advice and patience. Some regulatory reversals he has in mind, for instance, are predicted to take two or more years to accomplish. Other Obama policies will be easier to erase.

Trump Selects Oklahoma AG Fighting EPA Regulations to Lead EPA

The Oklahoma attorney general, who the New York Times described as a “hero to conservative activists,” is one of the Republican attorneys general who formed an alliance with the country’s top energy producers to put a stop to Obama’s regulatory agenda.
Pruitt, along with Greg Abbott of Texas, planned a legal effort starting in 2014 to counter the Obama administration’s string of regulations, including on climate change. Their efforts resulted in a 28-state lawsuit against Obama’s climate change rules, which is expected to move to the Supreme Court.

Trump Day One To-Do List: Repeal $1.7 Billion Of Dodd-Frank Rules

The Dodd-Frank financial “reform,” passed by Democrats and signed into law by President Obama in 2010, is arguably the most misguided and economically harmful piece of legislation ever imposed on the country (the second, arguably, is ObamaCare).
As we’ve noted in this space before, one of the main reasons the economy has been stuck in neutral for the past six years has been the millstone of a 2,300-page law that has spawned multitudes more pages of costly and economically foolish regulations. The law has calcified the credit markets, forced community banks out of business, and unleashed an unaccountable, out-of-control agency that goes by the innocent-sounding name of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

Tina Fey Warns: Prepare for Nazi America Under a Donald Trump Presidency

Ohio approves bill to ban all abortions after the heartbeat of the fetus is first detected
The so-called ‘heartbeat’ abortion bill has been approved by Ohio’s state House. It would see almost all abortions banned after the first heartbeat is detected. Bill only makes exception if the mother’s life is in danger and not in rape cases. Legislation is now being passed to state governor John Kasich for his approval.

[CtH: I have long said that the standards for determining death should be the same ones for determining life.  Currently, the standard for determining life is whether or not the baby’s nearest kin want him or her to live, while the standard for determining death are cessation of heart beat and brain activity, both of which are detectable in fetuses before many women suspect they’re even pregnant. Of course, if the euthanasia creeps get their way, we’ll make death like abortion where the people who are most likely to resent the expense and bother of caring for the helpless individual gets to decide whether or not to off him or her.]

Whoa: Liberals Mull Scheme to Temporarily Seize Control of Senate, Confirm Obama’s SCOTUS Nominee
On January 3, 2017, Democrats will hold the majority in the Senate for a few minutes, until the newly-elected Senators are sworn in. Biden could convene the Senate in those few minutes and call for a vote. The majority could then suspend the rules and vote in Merrick Garland. The key here is that VP Biden would have to be willing to convene the Senate and recognize Senator Dick Durbin instead of Mitch McConnell.  Durbin moves to re-nominate Garland, and Senate Democrats then vote to confirm him. They will have a quorum for those few minutes. It’s bold. Garland would be confirmed by 34 Democrats and no Republicans.

Valerie Jarrett: Trump Victory Was ‘Soul-Crushing,’ ‘Punch to the Stomach

Jarrett said, “We were surprised by the outcome of the election. It kind of was like a — I’m not sure what the right analogy would be, but like a punch in the stomach, let’s say. Soul-crushing might be another description. But that’s the democracy that we have. The people get to decide and the elections matter and we have to get about the business of doing our jobs.”

Barack “MeToo!” Obama
Donald Trump began a Thank You Tour this past week to celebrate his victory with those who supported him in the election.  Naturally, “MeToo!” Obama decides he needs to do a tour as well.
Fox News Chief National Correspondent Ed Henry told Fox & Friends this morning that behind the scenes, Obama’s advisors are planning a Farewell Tour in mid-January before he leaves office.
Not for the same reasons, of course.  Trump is doing it to thank us; Barack “MeToo!” Obama is doing it so people can thank him. Amazing, isn’t it?
Obama flies to Hawaii in less than two weeks and will stay there until after the New Year. Then, he’ll hop aboard Air Force One, return to Washington just in time to launch his Farewell Tour.
Said Ed Henry: “I’m told there’s at least three cities that President Obama will be giving major speeches in arenas. One of them is Chicago, his sort of adopted hometown. They’re looking at the United Center there, where the Chicago Bulls play.”
He can’t wait three weeks and do a little tour on his own dime?  What’s wrong with holding a “I’m a Private Citizen Now” tour?  I guarantee, tens of thousands of Americans who didn’t vote for Obama would turn up to celebrate that.
No. Obama wants to do this because he is continuously being upstaged by the man who will replace him.  And nobody puts Barry in the corner!

Dick Cheney To CNN Reporter: Trump Took Us To Point Where We Don’t Need You Guys Anymore
Vice President Dick Cheney landed a major zinger on a CNN reporter this weekend. He was at an event with Obama’s former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta. They were talking with CNN reporter Barbara Starr about national security and foreign policy.
Cheney had a few really funny lines but the one about the press was hysterical.
think one of the reasons people get so concerned about the tweets is it is sort of a way around the press. He doesn’t have to rely upon, uh, rely upon — this is the modern era, modern technology. He’s at the point where we don’t need you guys anymore.

Obama Jokes With The Eagles At Kennedy Center Honors Reception

Clinging to the tattered remains of his pathetic legacy, Ol’ Barry had to insert himself into the Kennedy Center Honors reception last night to hobknob with Al Pacino, James Taylor, and the surviving members of The Eagles, who sold more albums in the 20th century than anybody.

Meet The 7 Veterans Newly Elected To Congress
The number of veterans serving in Congress is set to increase in 2017.
There’s no question that the military molds ordinary citizens into incredible leaders, and it appears the rest of the country has begun to recognize that, too.

At least 27 post-9/11 veterans won congressional races on Nov. 8, while the current Congress includes 26 veterans. In addition, at least 18 veteran incumbents won reelection and three senators were not up for reelection this year. There are, however, still handful of races that have run-offs as you can see from this chart drawn up by Military Times.

Oregon official who fined Christian bakery into shutting down loses election

Commissioner of the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries Brad Avakian gained infamy when he fined a Christian bakery with $135,000 for refusing to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple. Avakian looked to move up in the state government by attempting to run for Secretary of State. His campaign claimed that he would use his office to come down hard on corporations with audits, use his governmental powers to protect the environment, and police workplace pay.
None of these things being what a secretary of state does.
What’s more, Avakian lost to a Republican, former state representative Dennis Richardson. Aside from being a Republican beating a Democrat out of office in Oregon, Richardson will be the first Republican voted into statewide office in 14 years.

EPA, not fracking, fouls wells
