Scott Pruitt Confirmed As Secretary of EPA…

Millions of protesting sand smelts held up little sand smelt signs and chanted in little sand smelt voices: “hey, hey, ho, ho, he’s no Richard Windsor bro“, as they defiantly march toward safer hospice in Mexico…

Yes, today the Senate finally confirmed Scott Pruitt to head the Environmental Protection Agency; a rogue agency completely out of sync with any semblance of normal environmental protection.  Between bites of their sustainable algae cakes, drum circle activists throw themselves into apoplectic fits….

scott-pruitt-1

The vote was 52-46.   Senators Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), and Joe Manchin (D-WV) voted for Pruitt.  Republican Susan Collins of Maine voted against him.

The Senate now takes a week off allowing professional activists to regroup before returning on February 27th to vote on:  • Commerce nominee Wilbur Ross, • Interior nominee Ryan Zinke, • Housing and Urban Development nominee Dr. Ben Carson, and • Energy nominee Rick Perry.

President Trump will be going into March without a full cabinet.

              I think McCain was over in Germany trying to smear some of his ca ca onto Secretary Mattis, VP Pense, and Secretary Kelly:

              “Trump’s team in disarray, U.S. Senator McCain tells Europe

              Republican Senator John McCain broke with the reassuring message that U.S. officials visiting Germany have sought to convey on their debut trip to Europe, saying on Friday that the administration of President Donald Trump was in “disarray”.

              McCain, a known Trump critic, told the Munich Security Conference that the resignation of the new president’s security adviser Michael Flynn over his contacts with Russia reflected deep problems in Washington.

              “I think that the Flynn issue obviously is something that shows that in many respects this administration is in disarray and they’ve got a lot of work to do,” said McCain.”

                  This is why we have to quit getting election fever and allowing ourselves to be pushed into voting for people like little jonnie mac – people who are nothing more than democrats in republican clothing. We need to support and, if possible, vote for whoever runs against them in the primary, because no matter how bad that person they are still better than having a traitor as a senior member of the house or senate. If the rotten incumbent wins the primary then we need to simply leave that race blank or vote for the dem if we can find the strength to do so because we are better off with a known enemy than with a supposed friend who does nothing but stab us in the back as little jonnie mac is doing here.
                  The main thing is just to get them out of office when it is obvious that they are not on our side.

    These two men, Commerce nominee Wilbur Ross and Housing and Urban Development nominee Dr. Ben Carson are two of the most crucial and two of the most qualified and unstoppable nominees and should have been two of the first.

    This is all on Mitch, Pence and Preibus. To hold back Commerce and HUD is shameless, cynical behavior and sabotage of two months of work that could have moved America and minority communities forward, as well as Trade deals and Infrastructure financing set up.

    We have seen the Democrats put all of their energy into fighting Mrs. DeVos at Education and Mr. Puzder at Labor. What that means is that the Unions still call the shots with the Senate Democrats since those are the two departments that affect them most directly.

    However, in terms of day to day impact on this country, Pruitt might have an even bigger effect in promoting prosperity and growth than even Sessions as Justice. If Democrats had ever stopped to think about this seriously, they would have threw everything they had to try to stop Pruitt’s confirmation because the EPA is the agency where the progressives exerted most of its power, leverage and control over the private sector. This agency is hostile, antagonistic, corrupt and evil. Disband it, please.
