Government officials looking to grease the skids, orchestrate a back room deal, coordinate a little pay-to-play or just outright bully and bribe their way to success don’t like email. They are dreaming of the days when you could just burn an incriminating piece of evidence in the fireplace, because no matter how hard they try, those pesky emails have a way of coming back to bite! Hillary’s been trying to make jokes about wiping her secret email problem away…like with a cloth or something. If it was only just that easy. Hillary’s problems aren’t the only emails coming to the light of day thanks to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.
Enough hard evidence has come forth that 25 states and a host of other petitioners with names like the Chamber of Commerce, the United Mine Workers, the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers, Iron Ship Builders, Blacksmiths, and Forgers, and more have filed for a stay of the implementation of the EPA’s “transformative greenhouse gas regulations (GHG)”. The petition hopes to mitigate the damages to the country as enough evidence has already come out about the unlawful collusion that took place in the writing of the GHG’s to provide reasonable expectation that it will go down under litigation.
When a regulatory scheme emanating straight from the executive branch threatens to cripple our economy and absolutely crush certain industries, it must be stopped. The Obama Administration and its handpicked climate activists cannot and should not be bureaucratically changing America in a fundamental way with no check or balance. Policy that so powerfully effects our economy should stand up to the scrutiny of full congress. Sadly, that is not how this administration likes to play it. We’ve come a long way from campaigning on transparency. The Obama Administration and its officials have devolved into a full-fledged concerted effort to cover up what’s going on.
Information from FOIA requests have shown a much more than chummy relationship between the climate change groups and the EPA. The climate change groups and the EPA have gone full on to enjoy a torrid romance together. The Obama Administration appointed so many members from the Natural Resource Defense Council (NRDC), one of the most powerful environmental groups in the Nation, that they became known as the EPA’s NRDC Mafia.
This NRDC Mafia used the EPA as a powerful new weapon. As with any Mafioso, it was time to clean house and eliminate your enemies. Suddenly on the inside of government, the only thing left to do was to use that newfound power to promulgate the fundamental change Obama campaigned on…ethics be damned! Email correspondence has shown some of what the EPA and its mafia did.
The EPA used government events to help environmental activists get signatures for petitions. The agency also gave advanced copies of EPA press releases/statements to the environmental groups. Those official EPA press releases and statements were then actually drafted to fit activist’s talking points. One email shows the EPA actually asking the Sierra Club (another powerful environmental group) for its agenda so the EPA could adapt its message accordingly. The saying, it’s who you know that’s important, seems to be proven right by the Obama Administration.
The EPA mafia didn’t stop there. They continued by collaborating extensively to find friendly locations for anti-fossil fuel events covered in the idea of a “Listening Tour”. The Sierra Clubs Beyond Coal campaign was basically given free reign at these EPA events to continue the mission to crush coal. Remember the Obama promise to “bankrupt” anyone who tried to build a new coal plant. Mission accomplished. Sierra Clubs internal spreadsheet show 16 new coal fired plants canceled in 13 states. How many jobs did that kill? How much closer to energy independence would that have made us?
Remember the emails? The ones that oh-so-many people wish didn’t exist, let alone be coming to public light. It turns out that the Obama Administrations EPA boss Lisa Jackson tried to hide her identity in her colluding emails. She created a fake name, Richard Windsor, a combination of her dogs name and a New Jersey town, to cover up her actions between activists and the EPA. The cover went so well that Mr. Windsor was awarded the Scholar of Ethical Behavior employee award three years in a row! Below is an example of the model employee Richard Windsor, using his, I mean her, government position to eliminate ones enemies, much like the Mafia they were lovingly named.
Facts and proof are creating a mountain of evidence against the Obama Administration’s EPA Mafia and the collusion that was systemic between them and America’s most passionate climate activist groups. The FOIA information and emails have forced an unwilling transparency upon our leaders. With that transparency, the cover up has begun and is still raging. Slowly, the scandal is making its way to the public eye. On full display, an Obama Administration bankrupt of morals and a willingness to crush the rule of law in light of the climate changes cultish agenda.
It’s not just the rule of law that is destroyed. The power wielded by unelected activists being given the keys to the kingdom does much more than destroy its political enemies, it destroys the livelihood, the hopes and dreams of real families. Not fake people with made up names in emails…these are real people with real jobs, where real industries that once supported entire towns are being destroyed in a misguided desire to rule from on high.
The time has come to stop the Obama Administration and its weapon, the EPA, from running unchecked through our economy in an attempt to create a climate activists utopia.
