Acting EPA Chief Promises to Continue

Good news, America, the anti-Trump media may have succeeded in wearing down Scott Pruitt but the agency he headed will continue President Trump´s objective of rolling back regulations. Reuters reports that the goals at the Environmental Protection Agency remain unchanged: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s acting chief said on Wednesday he would carry out the Trump administration’s push to cut regulations on industry, while also seeking to improve air and water quality, echoing the policies of former head Scott Pruitt who stepped down last week. The people who were so fervent about ousting Pruitt may now be in a "be

Music to my eyes. The regulation slashing revolution is the best thing since the pacification of North Korea and the transforming of SCOTUS.

Not to get rid of the endangerment act that made CO2 a pollutant.

I hope that is true. I was not impressed that Acting Chief, in his introductions to EPA, spent his time responding to critics, rather than on the work to be done going forward. That was weak, and right out of the box. We will see. PDT will have to consider in appointing, and getting confirmed, the new EPA Chief. Certainly, Scott Pruitt proved himself personally a disaster, totally incapable of dealing with the hatred of left in DC.

Excellent. The smaller, weaker and less involved the EPA is, the more liberty there is in the country.

Memo: Trump leaves chaos

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Niall Stanage    Original Article
Posted By: Jade- 7/13/2018 6:26:59     Post Reply
President Trump’s conduct during his trip to the United Kingdom has left even seasoned observers scratching their heads. Trump’s criticism of British Prime Minister Theresa May in an interview with The Sun newspaper has overshadowed the visit, to no discernible benefit to the president. Even Trump seemed to acknowledge the misstep when he admitted during a joint news conference with May on Friday that he had tried to apologize to her. “When I saw her this morning I said, ‘I want [to] apologize, because I said such good things about you.’ She said, ‘Don’t worry, it’s only the press,’ ” Trump said.

Pretty much every American news outlet is gleeful about the “giant Trump baby balloon,” as it is conventionally described, that supposedly is dominating the London landscape while Trump is in England. London’s Mayor, Sadiq Khan, gave activists permission to fly the blimp (as it is also referred to), which apparently was needed because it is so “giant.” Photos of the balloon/blimp do make it look large, like this one attributed to the Associated Press: [photo] But this morning, a colleague of mine who is from London got this photo that was taken by a friend. It puts the “giant baby balloon” into context. It isn’t exactly dominating the

Two Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) officials are departing the agency after being forced out following incendiary social media posts, Politico reported Friday. The officials are Tim Clark, the HHS´s White House liaison, and Gavin Smith, a policy adviser, according to the outlet. Clark is resigning while Smith was fired and escorted from the building this week. An HHS spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Politico first reported on the social media postings of Smith, Clark and others "who tweet like [President] Trump" last month. Smith, in one post,

Indictment Says Congressional Candidate

An unidentified 2016 congressional candidate reached out to Russian intelligence officers collectively posing as a Romanian hacker under the pseudonym Guccifer 2.0 for dirt on a political opponent, according to an indictment filed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller Friday. The indictment, which names twelve members of the Russian military intelligence unit known as the GRU, mentions an unnamed congressional candidate who, in August of 2016, asked Guccifer 2.0 “for stolen documents” related to his or her opponent. Guccifer 2.0, then claiming to be an individual Romanian hacker responsible for breaching the

Special counsel Robert Mueller´s investigation has led to the indictments of 12 Russian nationals for interfering in the 2016 elections, accusing them of engaging in a "sustained effort to hack into the computer networks" of the DCCC, the DNC and "the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton and release that information on the internet under the names DCLeaks and Guccifer 2.0 and through another entity." According to CNN, the 12 defendants are members of the GRU, a "Russian federation intelligence agency within the main intelligence directorate of the Russian military," all of whom were acting in "their official capacities."

There may not have been much new substance revealed during Peter Strzok’s testimony, as Jazz predicted, but everyone got to watch a lot of score-settling. Republicans in the hearing went after Strzok, Strzok went after them, Democrats and Republicans fought with and talked over each other, and voters got another reason to either cheer or boo depending on who was talking at the moment.

The city of Danville, Virginia sits in the bellybutton of the Blue Ridge Mountains, a hat-toss over the North Carolina border and about 85 miles northwest of Raleigh. It’s low hill country and Danville straddles the frothy, chocolate-milk waters of the Dan River. Downtown, once a booming trade district, today is a decomposed industrial husk, a tidy cluster of silent rectangles ensnared by broad, ghostly thoroughfares built for a time in the not-so-distant past when people and goods poured in and out of town. Those days are gone, perhaps never to return. The story of Danville

FBI official Peter Strzok´s first public hearing tumbled into a rancorous and heated political fracas on Thursday, as Republicans clashed with Democrats as well as the former investigator over his anti-Trump texts -- and even threatened contempt for refusing to answer questions on the Russia probe. The contempt threat surfaced after House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., questioned "how many witnesses" Strzok interviewed before an August 2016 text from Strzok to former FBI lawyer Lisa Page stating "we´ll stop" then-candidate Trump from becoming president. Strzok said he was not able to answer the question based on instructions

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has reportedly incurred a mountain of debt partly due to buying season tickets for the Washington Nationals. Kavanaugh reported having between $60,000 and $200,000 in debt on three credit cards and a personal loan in 2016, according to The Washington Post. The Nationals tickets were purchased for himself and friends over the past decade. White House spokesman Raj Shah told the paper that Kavanaugh has since paid off some of the debt while his friends paid him back for the tickets. Kavanaugh, who has not worked in the more lucrative private sector, showed assets between

More than 500 children held in Border Patrol custody have now been reunited with their parents and the rest who were separated under the zero-tolerance border policy will be connected within a day, the government said late Saturday. But the government is still struggling to reunite children who were separated and had already been turned over to social workers from the federal Health Department, and who have been sent to dorms around the country. There were some 2,053 of those children as of Wednesday, when President Trump signed his executive order ending family separation at the border. “The United States

Hillary Clinton had strong words for the Trump administration and Republicans on Friday while addressing the American Federation of Teachers, saying the fundamental rights of Americans are what’s at stake this November. Speaking at the labor union’s conference in Pittsburgh, Mrs. Clinton slammed the administration’s separations of families at the border as inhumane and indecent. “I believe with all my heart that the test of any society is how we treat the most vulnerable among us, particularly our youngest, our oldest, our people with disabilities, and right now, my friends, our country is failing that test,” she said. “We have

Fox News host Dana Perino on Thursday night called for congressional hearings to be taken off-camera following a wild hearing with FBI agent Peter Strzok earlier in the day. Perino slammed Democrats for an "outrageous" suggestion Strzok deserved a Purple Heart and scolded Republicans for "overboard" questions that "felt like a public lynching" during Strzok´s testimony to the House Judiciary and House Oversight and Government Reform committees. The comments from the former George W. Bush press secretary came after Strzok´s testimony dominated headlines and broadcast news on Thursday.

The indictment Friday of 12 Russian military officers for the election hacks against the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign lends a surprising new detail to the 2016 election interference timeline: The Kremlin’s hackers apparently still maintained a foothold in the DNC’s network four months after the Democrats announced that they’d locked the intruders out. Until today, the story of the DNC hack ended promptly on June 14, 2016, when the Democrats went public with the intrusion in the pages of the Washington Post, and Crowdstrike, the security firm hired to respond to the breach, published a detailed technical account. Today’s indictment confirms

Anyone who has ever been to a recycling plant is invariably surprised at how dirty and nasty America’s favorite green activity really is. Trucks dump the material on a long conveyor belt, where a few dozen people pick through by hand what is supposed to be recyclable material, but more and more often is just plain old dirty trash. The recyclables used to be worth something more than bragging rights about liberal moral superiority. Plastic bottles, newspapers, and cardboard, were just a few of the favorites you could ship to China by the ton and make a few bucks along the

Peter Strzok admitted to Congress on Thursday that he “detested” Donald Trump and was rooting for Hillary Clinton to win the 2016 election. “You were both rooting for Hillary Clinton to win and you both detested Donald Trump, were you not?” Republican Ohio Rep. Steve Chabot asked Strzok during a joint congressional hearing. “I think that’s fair to say,” said Strzok. While acknowledging his animus to Trump, Strzok insisted in Thursday’s hearing that bias did not affect his work on the Trump-Russia investigation.

So Donald Trump went to a NATO summit, insulted our allies, then made the absurd demand not just that they increase defense spending — which they should — but that they raise it to 4 percent of G.D.P., much higher than the bloated military spending in his own budget. He then claimed, falsely, to have won major concessions, and graciously declared that it is “presently unnecessary” to consider quitting the alliance. Was there anything our allies could have done that would have mollified him? The answer, surely, is no. For Trump, disrupting NATO doesn’t seem to be a means to an

Democrats hold a massive voter lead in states that require party registration, a gap of 12 million that could be key to whether the party takes control of the House and Senate in the fall midterm congressional elections, according to a new analysis. Overall, 40 percent of voters in 31 party registration states are Democrats, 29 percent are Republicans, and 28 percent are independents, according to a new report of July numbers from the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics. The states include several with key battles over House seats such as California, New York, Florida, and Pennsylvania.

Americans are encouraged to embrace diversity and be culturally sensitive to those who have flouted our laws and invaded our nation. Meanwhile, illegal aliens arriving in America have no such requirement. Instead, trespassing tribes relocate, and when they do, rather than assimilate, they transfer habits and activities indigenous to the countries from whence they migrated. Thus, Americans suffer from illnesses that are easily traceable to third-world bathroom habits (TWBH) and lack of hygiene in the developing world. It´s not news that illegals work in restaurants as food-handlers. These restaurant workers migrate from
