Panic Amid The Department of Richard Windsor…

“If you would not be forgotten, as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write things worth reading, or do things worth writing.” ~ Ben Franklin

ohio-coal-e134542041343999.99% of the American electorate have yet to fully grasp of the scope of the 2016 election.

99.99% of Americans have sparse comprehension toward the meaning of 8 years without a federal budget – when contrast with a reality of a $986 billion (that’s billion with a “B”), “stimulus” bill that has been re-spent (used as an executive slush fund), and intentionally hidden behind the curtain of the UniParty.

99.99% of Americans have no cognitive concept of what is possible, because the water-carrying media never discussed the ramifications of an absent federal budget.

However, there is one person who knows, and the possibilities are jaw-dropping for the next President-Elect.  More on that later….  In the interim, the Federal Department of Richard Windsor is, well, apoplectic.

WASHINGTON DC – U.S. EPA employees were in tears. Worried Energy Department staffers were offered counseling. Some federal employees were so depressed, they took time off. Others might retire early.

And some employees are in downright panic mode in the aftermath of Donald Trump’s victory.

“People are upset. Some people took the day off because they were depressed,” said John O’Grady, president of American Federation of Government Employees Council 238, a union that represents thousands of EPA employees. After Election Day, “people were crying,” added O’Grady, who works in EPA’s Region 5 office in Chicago. “They were recommending that people take sick leave and go home.”

Rick Perry CowboyEPA employees stand to see some of the most drastic changes under the Trump administration, and they may be taking things a bit harder than other government workers.

The president-elect has vowed to repeal some of the rules they’ve toiled on for the last eight years during the Obama administration, including the Clean Power Plan rule to cut power plants’ greenhouse gas emissions.

Trump has even suggested abolishing the agency entirely, although that would be an uphill political climb. Trump has picked a top climate change skeptic to lead his EPA transition team — Myron Ebell of the Competitive Enterprise Institute — and has promised sweeping reforms in the agency that’s long been a target for industry groups and Republicans who say its rules overreach.

“If you look at the seven stages of grief, I’m still in denial. I will not look at the news. I will not read the news,” said an EPA career employee.  (read more)

      Of all the corruption going on behind our backs,

      The EPA may be the most corrupt of them all.

      They were a slush fund for untested and even failed environmental carpetbaggers.

      An upstanding American rancher was murdered over it.

      Water and air and forestry have all suffered over their policies to enrich sloth science.

        It’s going to be really tough to get qualified people in the EPA. Every one I have met coming out of school in the environmental sciences, the past 20 years, are rabid tree huggers. Even the ones in their late 40’s early 50’s have been brainwashed due to the money.

        The only sane environmental guys I have met are all getting close to retirement. That includes me – close to retireing, never said I was sane.

          who cares they are worthless anyway. Maybe some of them will get so bored they will decide to leave on their own-then shut the EPA-sucker down.
          Same with BLM (Land mgmt, not the terrorist group). Start selling those federal lands back to the states, have them run the land; it’s theirs anyway. It’s the same thing BHO did with ICE, he told them not to do their jobs. Simple solution.

        dbobway, here is a Forbes article I found in January of last year regarding the corrupt EPA. It is a 2 pager but worth the read:

        “EPA’s Secret And Costly ‘Sue And Settle’ Collusion With Environmental Organizations”
        [excerpt]
        “Sue and Settle “ practices, sometimes referred to as “friendly lawsuits”, are cozy deals through which far-left radical environmental groups file lawsuits against federal agencies wherein court-ordered “consent decrees” are issued based upon a prearranged settlement agreement they collaboratively craft together in advance behind closed doors. Then, rather than allowing the entire process to play out, the agency being sued settles the lawsuit by agreeing to move forward with the requested action they and the litigants both want.

        In other words, the agency throws the case, somewhat like Bre’r Rabbit agreeing to be thrown into a favorite brier-patch. A big difference however, is that in this case, Farmer McGregor and Mr. Rabbit were partners in the scam from the beginning. It’s the unwary American public that actually does get caught in the thorns.

        While the environmental group is given a seat at the table, outsiders who are most impacted are excluded, with no opportunity to object to the settlements. Accordingly, both the litigants and the defendant agency, operating in coffee bars and friendly courtroom shadows, avoid the harsh outside glare of oversight. No public notice about the settlement is released until the agreement is filed in court…after the damage has been done.

              Punkinseed,
              You are absolutely right. Many times they leave it in better shape then when they had arrived. We have a huge gold mine quite a distance out of town, and I’ve witnessed parts where they have put it back together again when they are done with certain areas. It’s an amazing sight, especially when you see a moose drinking from the lake they created.

              It is unfortunate they still carry the bad rap (which they had earned) from so many years ago. I’ve seen the before and after with what the miners are doing now, and I have no doubt the loggers have the same love and respect for where they are working too. It really is amazing to see what they do.

              Thank you for pointing this out, a lot of people are still under the disillusionment from long ago. Not the majority of the people here though. 😊

                  Oh, and their faces were priceless. It never failed to get their mouths to drop open in shock. And then you could see their wheels turning and hitting dead end after dead end. I sure do miss those loggers. Great people. I don’t think I ever met one I didn’t like, and that is rare, there’s always someone in a group. I guess I never ran into or found one.

      As we begin to “Drain the Swamp” around D.C. next year perhaps it would be wise to schedule little bit of White House renovation at that time? Meanwhile President Trump can run things from his Southern White House location at Mar-a-Lago. He could visit periodically but delay his move to Washington until sometime in 2018. That is my preferred scenario and am sticking to it.

        We’ve got snow already where I live. It’s was two weeks late though. However, we have these cycles all the time. It just is what it is and we die hard locals know it.

        Many of the years we got snow around September 10th, it’s why our grouse season starts August 10th, 11th or 12th. By the time the snow comes, all the leaves are off the trees for good hunting.

        Weather goes in cycles just like the rest of Mother Nature. What’s the cycle for grouse, eight years? It has its highest peak for their population and their lowest, and it moves with their predators cycles. Their highest peak means the lowest peak for their predators and vice versa. It’s all common sense. No difficult equations needed.

        I think if more people would just take the time to listen to Mother Earth we’d figure things out more easily. Instead, they keep throwing out this mumbo jumbo that only makes sense to them. It’s why we supposedly need them, so they can explain it all to us simple folks who just simply don’t know any better.

        I’ve always believed that our Mother Earth was a common sense kinda Lady. If one would just take the time to listen to her, she would make far more sense to everyone questioning.

            What is wrong with it is government money, in the name of child and education, is going to private sectors. It also ceases being separation of church and state when the state sends money to a church school. Educational funds are not a right. The public schools are set up for everyone to go. If you want more or different, find your own way. It also causes one to abdicate public school services. Let me explain.

            Here in Indiana homeschoolers could take any classes at the public schools they wanted, one or five, and be involved in sports. It was great. Our kids went to Choir at the high school. Also, if your district did not offer something that another district offered, like swimming or cosmetology, or auto mechanics, you could take it at a district that did offer it or had the sport.

            Now that monies follow the child this is gone. Kids were enrolled in a State online public school but could no longer go to any classes or sports locally. Their virtual school, being virtual does not have shop, or golf, or football but now in order to take anything anywhere one must take at least five classes and submit to all state testings.

            Homeschoolers can take a tax credit, which amounts to about 400 dollars, but can no longer pick up classes at the local highschool because of “follow the money”

            Although Trump is genuine in this it is not getting the Federal Gov out of the State’s business and is still regulating it. At best school choice should be a state issue.

            The freedom for us as parents is in walking away from the public offering of education and putting in our hands. with school choice following the money requires the children and their course of education and testings/progress and even whereabouts to be reported, monitored, analyzed, etc., The schools that accept the monies are first answerable then to the government and not their customers, which is the parent and child.

            Welfare or feeding the poor is a good example. If you were hungry you had access to our food surplus. Canned goods, dry milk, dry beans, cheeze, eggs, and stuff. You got portions per family members and the Extension Services even taught you how to cook with all the foods. But after a time, people wanted variety. Now, they have variety to the point that they can buy so much more than food. But the cost has gone up and more are enrolled to the point it is a breaking system.

            It is our choice to be free of government and not send our children to the collective schools that we pay for the community at large. The money is not ours to do with at will. Many, many pay property tax and do not have children; where is their rightful piece of the education pie?

            I do NOT want my tax dollars to go to teach Islam to a child. Or any other religion, for that matter.

    • Department of Energy was originally setup to do nuclear weapons research I believe. Maybe it’s a misnomer these days. But some of the work remains both highly classified and of high national security interest.

      So, house-cleaning sure. Abolishment hold your horses.

    More on EPA head Gina McCarthy.

    I Am Woman: Obama EPA Chief declares Agency the ‘She-P-A’

    EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy: ‘We call E.P.A. the ‘She’ P.A. because the women have taken over, and we ain’t givin’ it up!’ – ‘We have made a tremendous amount of progress on our equality initiatives moving forward during this administration…You tell everybody. We do math all day long. We do science all day long.’

    McCarthy received a Bachelor of Arts in Social Anthropology from the University of Massachusetts at Boston.

    McCarthy has said she “doesn’t actually need the raw data in order to develop science. That’s not how it’s done.”

    During a recent Congressional Hearing, Rep Dana Rohrabacher (R) was shocked that McCarthy did not have any idea what percentage of the atmosphere was made up of carbon dioxide (CO2).

    “You’re head of the EPA and you did not know? …Now you are basing policies that impact dramatically on the American people and you didn’t know what the content of CO2 in the atmosphere was… the justification for the very policies you’re talking about?”

    This is not the first time McCarthy has flunked knowing basic science. In a Senate hearing in March, McCarthy was unaware of climate data showing no increase in extreme weather.

Meanwhile our vets can’t get medical care, inner cities are 3rd world jungles, the national debt is more than $20 trillion and men can join little girls in the restroom.

        The thread of political correctness is across every agency. That is another entire industry.

        How many companies websites use the word sustainability? Where did this thought come from? It is an industry in and of itself! It began with Obama! It too cuts across agencies! College have minors-majors-masters-PHDs in sustainability! It is all BULL! Industry does best i terms of sustainability by itself by ensuring that resources are available for the future.

    All the EPA should be doing is ensuring that factories don’t spew their garbage into the waterways and air, sewage doesn’t flow into our waterways and that water plants meet acceptable levels of CLEAN WATER delivered to their constituents. At most, this should only require a small dept of around 100 people to offer guidance to States with a small cadre of scientists for testing purposes. Factories and States can pay for it too.

    Climate Depot publisher Marc Morano’s statement on President Elect Donald J. Trump:

    Morano: “Climate sanity has been restored to the U.S. No longer do we have to hear otherwise intelligent people in charge in DC blather on about how UN treaties or EPA regulations will control the Earth’s temperature or storminess.

    The election of Trump tonight was one of pure enjoyment for those concerned about silly, sovereignty threatening and purely symbolic climate policies that have been imposed on the U.S. without a single vote. Skeptics also enjoyed watching the grieving faces of the mainstream media on CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, CBS, as the Trump election night shock sunk in.

    “What they (the Democrats & warmists) are so afraid of is this: Trump is the first Republican Presidential nominee that has ever staked out a strongly science supported skeptical position not only on climate science claims, but also on the so-called ‘solutions’.

    Now why would federal employees be upset over the results of the general election? I thought federal employees works for the people and not politicians? The people have decided on a different course. Isn’t up to federal employees to carry out the wishes of the boss? Federal employees are the only employees who got to run roughshod over the boss. That’s because the managers promoted by the boss decided to join forces with the other employees and ignore the wishes of the boss.

    Well the boss has had enough. A new overseer has been selected. All those employees who do not like it can take their disapproval and trauma, pack up their cubicles and leave. The boss is back in town.

  33. The EPA is staffed entirely by socialist activists that have been intent on destroying America, one business at a time. TRUMP should change the EPA to an agency that (are you ready?) actually has scientists tasked to help companies as far as pollution abatement. Think on that, instead of our over regulating government literally destroying our manufacturing base, they help them be successful. Hey, I like everyone hates pollution BUT you cannot create a product without changing it’s natural form into something useful without creating pollution. In the past companies polluted and skated criminal charges because of paid political interests, if someone (or company ) knowingly pollutes it’s off to jail. Believe me if they were going to jail, they would not criminally pollute.

    The EPA should absolutely be emptied or done away with altogether. It is a protection agency, but it doesn’t protect the environment. They protect large corporations from competition. That’s what all of their restrictive regulations are about; to make it as challenging as possible for new businesses to grow and challenge the big companies who own the political class.

    Parts of the DOE have been used to do the same. The NRC (Nuclear Regulatory Commission) has been used as a hammer to do everything possible to hamper new reactor designs and construction. It isn’t about reactor safety; it’s about keeping a tight leash on energy production and not allowing actual clean energy alternatives to upset the climate change narrative.

    France went nuts with nuclear and has the lowest emissions of an industrial nation. We, on the other hand, clamped down tighter with regulations. All for nefarious reasons.
