EPA to Republicans: You´re making
it ´very difficult´ to do our job

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Tim Devaney

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/30/2014 8:58:42 PM

A top official at the Environmental Protection Agency said Wednesday he is troubled by a lack of trust from Republicans concerning the EPA’s new climate rule and plan to regulate smaller bodies of water. EPA Deputy Administrator Bob Perciasepe said he is trying to “build a bridge” with Republicans. “I can tell you my boss [EPA Administrator] Gina McCarthy would want nothing more than to build credibility with Congress,” Perciasepe said during a hearing at the House Small Business Committee. Perciasepe plans to leave the EPA next month, but before he takes off he has been making the rounds in Congress, offering to

Oh puhleeze! I´m so sick of these liars! They are doing extremely well doing their jobs and destroying this country. The Republicans to them are like gnats on an elephant.

What do the EPA imagine to be their job these days? Keeping an eye on the environment and acting to counter abuses is one thing; but counteracting climate change (on the unproven assumption that human activity caused and can reverse it) is beyond the scope of their charter.

And regulating nearly every aspect of human activity to make it as ´green´ as possible is definitely beyond it.

Wow, this guy was able to spin it where it sounded like Congress, The SCOTUS and Obambi all wanted the EPA to write rules. And then he doesn´t understand why Rebublicans in Congress don´t trust the EPA. Well, maybe if the EPA and its henchmen quit with the obvious fantasies and started dealing in reality, there might be a little more trust.

Shut them down. The EPA (and other bureaucracies) are just a way for the Congress-critters to transfer the decision making process and to absolve themselves from blame for any horrendous decisions made by these entities. If they had to vote and go on record for all those regulations, there would be voter backlash. This way they can say they didn´t do it.

ALL of these "agencies" should be dissolved and the regulations trashed. Let Congress do their own dirty work. It´s their job to make these tough decisions.

That´s OK EPA, we can fix that by relieving you of your jobs, ASAP.

We need an umbrella bill that says that NO executive agency can carry out actions that cause more than $1 million in consumer costs without Congressional approval. Expected costs could be spelled out and approved in the original legislation but would be limited to those amounts unless extended by Congress.

The Executive should NOT have the ability to have unanticipated and unbounded impacts on the Country.

No government agency should have the power to impact the Country in this way without the express power of specific law.

The EPA is acting unlawfully in their new CO2 and water regulations.
They are required BY LAW to conduct an economic analysis of the cost impact of any new regulation, compared to the benefit. They have not done so. Exactly what benefit would they put on reducing CO2 that could be defended on its merits? Beyond global warming hysteria and ecoreligion, there are no defensible benefits.

Now Feds assail salt: No pizza, chips,

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard    Original Article

First fatty foods, then sugary drinks, now President Obama’s food police are gunning for salt in their effort to upend the typical kiddy diet. The latest evidence came Tuesday when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a report that school-aged children are eating a mountain of salt. The intake is so high, that the CDC is recommending a 50 percent cut within eight years. But that might be hard. Just consider one of the biggest suppliers of salt -- school cafeterias. The same cafeterias ordered to dish up the first lady’s healthy menu that swaps pizza for salads, and that many

Mark Sauser is a man not prone to show his emotions. But when he saw the video, he wept. The video showed a rampaging mob attacking people indiscriminately in the parking lot of a Kroger supermarket in Memphis, Tennessee. A bag boy saw the advancing crowd and sought shelter. He tried to escape but within a matter of moments the young man found himself swept up in the violence and chaos. The first punch came without warning. He was knocked to the ground. Then came another and the boy collapsed. But the angry mob would not let up. They slammed pumpkins into the

President Obama told congressional leaders at a White House meeting on Monday he wouldn’t need their authorization to expand his military campaign against Islamic terrorists. The president offered the assurance at a private White House meeting one day before a primetime address he’s scheduled to give to the nation. Wednesday’s address is a pivotal moment for the president just months before a midterm election in which the Senate’s majority hangs in the balance. Polls show that confidence in Obama’s foreign policy is eroding just as anxiety over the threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has peaked. Seven in 10

MEXICO CITY — The attorney generals from the United States, Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras have agreed to form a high-level group to address the migration of unaccompanied children. U.S. Justice Department spokesman Brian Fallon says in a statement that Attorney General Eric Holder met with his counterparts in Mexico City on Tuesday. The attorney generals will form the group with prosecutors from each country, and will work on a strategy to handle the flow of child migrants. The group is to meet in the coming weeks. Since Oct. 1, the United States has detained more than 66,000 unaccompanied child immigrants, mostly

Last week here at PJ Media, I reported on the ongoing relations between the U.S.-backed “vetted moderate” Free Syrian Army and ISIS. I also noted that, at this time last year, the received wisdom of the Washington, D.C. foreign policy establishment was that the Syrian rebels were largely moderate. Now, a report in this past Sunday’s LA Times from the frontlines in Syria finds that another “vetted moderate” rebel group, Harakat Hazm – which has received anti-tank missiles from the U.S. — has been working with al-Qaeda’s official Syrian affiliate, Jabhat al-Nusra: a U.S.-designated terrorist organization.

The Beltway is buzzing about what President Obama will announce in a primetime address Wednesday that will deal with combating ISIS. Earlier this week, the New York Times reported that the White House was preparing a plan that some Pentagon officials believe will require at least three years of sustained effort. Jonah Goldberg argued on Happening Now that President Obama´s strategy on foreign policy and the war on terror is to do "just enough" to get it out of the headlines and to "put out annoying political fires."

Funnyman-turned-senator Al Franken is running a dead serious campaign for re-election, as some observers see him potentially vulnerable due to President Obama´s low approval ratings in Minnesota and a vigorous GOP opponent with eyes on a sleeper upset. Just how vulnerable is up for debate, and the race nevertheless is seen as favoring the Democrats. But both sides now acknowledge that, with less than two months to go until Election Day, Minnesota´s Senate contest between Franken and Mike McFadden, a longtime Minnesota businessman, is shaping up as a battle.

The Obama administration will make a decision on executive action to prevent corporations from leaving the country in the "very near future," Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said Monday morning. Speaking at an event on business taxes at the Urban Institute in Washington, Lew placed the responsibility on Congress to address so-called tax inversions, but said that the administration was prepared to step in if lawmakers don´t move quickly enough. Inversions are tax maneuvers in which corporations buy firms in low-tax countries in order to place their headquarters in that country. Such deals have grown in number in recent months, with

Churchill came under intense scrutiny and was fired by the University of Colorado at Boulder.

Free money for everyone! With weak job growth, rising poverty, and the rich continuing to devour nearly all economic growth, it´s an idea that is gaining more credence. Arguments for a universal basic income (UBI) — in which everyone without exception would receive an equal stipend — have flourished in policy-centric areas of the internet, including The Week. Advocates of UBI see it as a blunter, more effective means of reducing poverty and shrinking the inequality gap. But even if UBI proponents are right on the merits, Tyler Cowen argues that the politics of the issue are not favorable. Under
