… the E.P.A. wants to do What ?? [#monitor water use]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,December 16th,2016

.. monitoring water use in the home is no big shock . Those dummies can get reports from the utilities for a homeowners ‘ or a renters ‘ water use per month …

.. but now they want this ??!? …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt.org]..
.. [link] to the blog news ..

.. they want to install small monitors in our hotel room showers . They want to monoitor our hotel shower water use , and report it to a central reporting point . Eventually someone is going to collect that data and make use of it ?? ….

.. yuck !! …

… The E.P.A. royally screwed Up [#federal court][#foia lawsuit]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,December 10th,2016

.. boy , oh boy , did they ever .

.. the other day , Federal District judge Royce D. Lamberth bawled out the E.P.A. and its senior management . While he did not severely sanction the E.P.A. [at least , not yet] , he severely chastised the Agency and several senior officials . They were called on the carpet for gross political bias and bigotry , and were legally and financially sanctioned ..

.. the punitive sanctions are being held out as a meat – cleaver over the head of the Agency , in order to get its attention . While this judge has the case , the E.P.A. has no choice but to cough up the requested information . The current F.O.I.A. precedent also acts to hammer them into compliance , and promptly …

.. now , the ball is in the EPA ‘ s court , so to speak . How will they respond . Dawdling is not an option , because if they do , the Judge will be able to seize effective control of the E.P.A. . dOING so would also block any sue – and – settle antics without Lamberth knowing about it …

… The EcoNazis are Coming for … [#air conditioners]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,October 21st,2016

.. yep , you heard it right ..

.. the E.P.A. wants to go after your air conditioners ..

.. what their target is is HydroFluroCarbons [HFCs] . They are the substance in our A.C.s that makes do what they do so well . Surprisingly , the dummies in the ecosocialism community believe that they contribute to global warming ..

.. [h/t — HotAir.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. the ObamaCraps know that Congress will not stand for this . What they also have to realize is that the public will not stand for it , either . We have come to enjoy our A.C. , and the hyperregulators at the E.P.A. are going waaaaaay out of bounds in trying to do this to something that so many people find so essential to modern life like air conditioning ..

.. a real stupid move ..

… The E.P.A. did What ?!?! [#paid leave][#child sex offenders][#drug offenders]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,October 11th,2016

.. the Environmental protection Agency does a great deal . That does not mean that it does not do a great deal right ..

.. they end up doing their jollies on such things as land grabs and power grabs . WE have come to expect that . But there is worse ..

.. but what could be worse ..

.. granting paid leave . Now , that is bad . But granting it to convicted child sex offenders and convicted drug offenders ?? That is most definitely much , much worse ..

.. [h/t — WFB.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. What in the hell are they thinking ?!?! These people are the worst scum of the Earth . They are also convicted felons . Those folks should have and definitely have forfeited their positions with the agency . Yet they still have a job ?? and they also have received paid sick leave ??

.. it is insane ! It is also illegal ..

… This Guy has Guys [#stock pond][#Wyoming]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,August 28th,2016

.. Andy Johnson is a cattle farmer ..

.. he was just trying to do what made sense . He requested and received the proper permits [state and federal] to build what is known as a stock pond on his land ..

.. he needs it to water and feed his various animals . The creek that runs thru his lands is not navigable . it is especially not what is known as a ” navigable water , ” as one would know it under the Clean Water Act . So Johnson should be able to build his pond without interference . Well , you would be wrong ..

.. [h/t — HotAir.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. in January of 2014 , the EPA sat on Johnson . Literally . They nailed him with a fine of $37,500 . Per Day . The amount of the fine [roughly] , as of now ? About $16 million , total …

.. what about appeals court precedent and Supreme Court precedent do these dummies not understand ?!?!

… Nice Going , DummyCrats [#Navajo Nation][#Animas River spill][#E.P.A.]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,September 27th,2015

.. the political tone – deafness of the Democrats on this one is incredible , and growing . It is also incredibly political stupid — and dangerous …

.. the Navajos are one of the largest Indian tribes [in terms of land area] in the nation . Their holdings cover parts of 4 states : Colorado [very little] , Utah [bigger] , New Mexico [much bigger still] , and , biggest of all , Arizona [huge] …

.. they obviously have several million folks who can claim Navajo ancestry . so the Navajos do give a flying fiddlers fig about what goes on back home on their ancestral lands . This environmental spill [courtesy of the ObamaCrap E.P.A. colossal blunder] effects them greatly .

.. [h/t — HotAir.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. ergo , the political effect could be huge . Utah is as deep red as it gets , so that one would not be particularly be changed by this . But , you add in Nevada , where a fair number of Navajos have migrated ? Yeow , that one is up for grabs . Colorado ? The number of Navajos is small , but the rest of the state has to be watching what the Obamacraps , the E.P.A. , and the DummyCraps in general are doing …

.. then comes New mexico . The Navajo prescence there is very strong , and spreads off of their lands . It could tip other tribes also [not limited to the Hopi] , and thus New Mexico politics …

.. then comes Arizona . The Navajo prescence in Arizona is enormous , including surrounding the Hopi lands . It would not just tip Az politics in general . Right Now , Arizona is roughly ” pink , ” or leaning GOP . You piss off enough of the Indians and you can [for the Dems] kiss off Az for a generation …

… POTUS could not be This Stupid [#Alaska]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,September 7th,2015

.. it appears that he is that dumb ..

.. it appears that the ObamaCraps have made a very , very large designation of wilderness in the state of Alaska . It is enormous , containing over 12.5 million acres of land . You would think , no biggie , right ?!?! …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop.com]..
.. [link] to the news article ..

.. Wrong ! Much of this land contains a great deal of the discoverable and provable resources of oil and natural gas in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge [A.N.W.R.] . Worse , the ObamaCraps did this move without any consultation with the state and legislative leaders in Alaska . Neither party [GOP or Dem] was consulted at all …

.. nice move , dummies ! This move can and will be challenged in court . Also , you can guarantee that Congress will get involved in this . If the ObamaCraps can pull this stunt in Alska , which has a congressional delegation with little punch , it can do it elsewhere , in states with much more political punch …

… You Have to Be Kidding [#EPA power grab]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,July 16th,2014

.. the E.P.A. wants to do what ?!?! …

..it is not a joke ..

.. [h/t — DailySignal]..
.. [link] to the article …

.. courtesy of a bill that was meant to deal with common actons and debts , federal agencies are moving to make use of it to step on us all . They think that they can use this law to grossly abuse to rights of Americans , and deny them the right to due process , courtesy of economic blackmail ?? …

.. No . this power should be greatly limited , if not taken away . One can understand its use by the Infernal Revenue Service in dealing with tax debts . But , if the actions of the Infernal Service are any guide , it is not a power that should be allowed to any other government agency , expect in extraordiniary circumstances …

.. most of all , people should be able to maintain their rights to due process under law . The courts have made clear that agencies cannot use these powers to block hearing citizens ‘ complaints …

… An Interesting Take [on EcoSocialist Activism] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,March 27th,2014

.. Oklahoma AG Scott Pruitt has found a rather rich but novel way to hold the government to the letter of the law , and block the ” sue and settle ” antics that have been going on for years . It has gotten rampant under the ObamaCraps , where the ” sue and settles ” have gotten out of hand …

.. what is AG Pruitt ‘ s novel solution ?

.. hold the government to the letter of the law .

.. [h/t — NationalReview]..

.. [link] to the article ..

.. under the Administrative Procedures Act , these dummies are circumventing all sorts of rules and authority . This type of authority is stuff that the agencies do not have , especially the E.P.A. . The E.P.A. should know better . The ecosocialist groupies could care less . Well , it is about time that somebody calls them on it …

.. steps that the state and local government have taken are a prat of the protocol . The ecoweenies have a habit of forgetting that . It is time that the judiciary call them on the carpet for it …

… the EcoNazis Run Wild …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,March 26th,2014

.. there is this Wyoming man , a welder , who owns a farm …

.. the guy fills the proper forms , and lives by the rules . In this case , it only invovles state law and rules , not the feds . Or so he thought …

.. he has a number of acres on his farm , so he built a catch pond . A ” catch pond ” is , I think , for stocking with several simple and common types of fish . Nothing wild or out of type , mind you .

.. [h/t — FoxNews]..
.. [link] to the story..

.. now , the EcoNazis at the E.P.A. are getting in on the act . They are threatening to fine him $75k a day . Yes , $75k a day . Unless he dismantles the catch pond , and restores the area to its original appearance . Even though those numb – nuts do not have jurisdiction in this matter . They still want to intervene , anyway ….

… This is Madness [propping up the Delta Smelt] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,March 3rd,2014

.. the ecosocialists are at it again .

.. Why ?

.. In 2008 , a faulty study forced the diversion of massive amounts of water from California ‘ s Central Valley . This area is better known to virtually all of us as the San Joaquin Valley . It is the state ‘ s agricultural heartland , taking care of millions economically ….

.. and because of a faulty study , regarding a 3 ” fish ?

.. The diversion is essence involves the massive diversion of water from the valley to the Sacramento River . Then , it goes to waste , going out to sea in the Pacific Ocean , via the San Francisco Bay ..

.. and tens of millions of acre – feet of arable and irrigatable land go to dust , lying fallow . It is also in the middle of the heart of the GOP part of the state . If California were to split , into 2 pieces or more , this area would be rich GOP turf …

.. some facts on the issue :

.. [h/t — theGatewayPundit]..

.. [link] to the blogpost ..

More… Here are the facts on California’s Central Valley, via the Natural Resources Committee:

** California’s water storage and transportation system designed by federal and state governments includes 1,200 miles of canals and nearly 50 reservoirs that provide water to about 22 million people and irrigate about four million acres of land throughout the state.

** In May 2007, a Federal District Court Judge ruled that increased amounts of water had to be re-allocated towards protecting the Delta smelt – a three-inch fish on the Endangered Species List.

** Because of this ruling, in 2009 and 2010 more than 300 billion gallons (or 1 million acre-feet) of water were diverted away from farmers in the Central Valley and into the San Francisco Bay – eventually going out into the Pacific Ocean.

** This man-made drought cost thousands of farm workers their jobs, inflicted up to 40 percent unemployment in certain communities, and fallowed hundreds of thousands of acres of fertile farmland.

** Unemployment remains at a regional average of 17%. With current precipitation at near-record lows, the same regulations will be imposed pushing unemployment even higher.

** The Pelosi-led Congress did nothing to reverse the plight of the San Joaquin Valley and even obstructed repeated Republican actions to reverse the situation. The Sacramento-San Joaquin Valley Water Reliability Act reflects Republican promises to avoid another man-made drought.
