    What a beautiful letter of resignation to the President. Scott is a Patriot and did a great job . These relentless attacks are wearing thin . The administration works 12 -16 hrs a day . Trump needs to start with the press. They need to be accountable and professional or pull their press credentials. Just calling out fake news is doing absolutely nothing. They just intensify their rhetoric.

      The media is self-destructing… or maybe a should use the past tense. Why get in the way when the enemy of the American people are discrediting themselves. American people must learn. You can’t trust the lamestream media and you can’t trust your deep state bureaucrats

      TeaForAll, he did an outstanding job as I say the pond we made is ours and the water in it vs. what the dictating old EPA in trying to OWN everything. Cleanse some employees that were not needed, took back salary increases that another in the organization gave them, etc. etc. Hopefully the fill in will continue to do the right thing in our EPA that actually helps and not hurts.

      Tea for all,

      Agreed! Losing doesn’t cut it. Start pulling press credentials. Fight back.
      There are several press stooges that the whole country would agree are viable to be treated like that.

      @repsort Agree, I was irked to hear this resignation news. Especially since Scott wrote in his letter that he felt it was God’s providence that he was put in POTUS Trump’s path for the job.

      So if God put Pruitt there at the EPA (per his own thinking), then why did he quit!? Did God pick the wrong guy? Sounds like it (from Pruitt’s thinking, that is).

      Was he getting death threats? (I don’t watch MSM; only what I hear through Alt blogs & twitters). Was his wife freaking out & pestering him to quit? (thinking out loud). He is 50 years old, not too young & not too old, but just right & “ripe enough” to know that being a quitter is not how life is done.

      When I heard a week or so ago that he got up from his lunch & walked OUT of the restaurant where the loony-Lib woman was having her tantrum re “climate change,” I thought, That’s wimpy to walk out like that. Why not handle the situation with “MANLY FIRMNESS” > that phrase is in the Declaration of Independence — by asking her to tone it DOWN, sit DOWN, & CALMLY explain what her problem is. If that didn’t work within FIVE seconds, next I’d pick up a phone & dial 911 in her presence, to report a disturbance at the restaurant. I would see it through to the end, until the cops arrived, THEN leave & go back to work.

      Now with the tone & wording of his letter (added to the above lunch encounter), I’m thinking maybe Pruitt is too much of a “softie” guy for the “cultural war zone.”

      Maybe James Woods (or POTUS himself) could give Scott a few “manly firmness” lessons. 🙂

      *”The wicked flee when no man pursueth, but the righteous are BOLD as a lion.”* (Proverbs 28:1)

      And/or as Dr. Phil used to say (two decades ago), “WE teach prople HOW to treat US,” meaning, if we act like a doormat, people will continue to walk all over us. It’s a mindset. Emit that “vibe.”

        Maybe being addressed by this woman was the last straw, but he is under 13 or 14 investigations over travel, expense account, and other matters….the latest apparently is changing his calendar to delete meetings and appointments he had, after-the-fact, which is supposed to be a big no-no. (or maybe it’s a big no-no to get caught doing that.) It’s too bad, because his work at EPA to knock down regs, etc., was very effective at taking away some of the authority the EPA was using to ruin businesses.

    This absolutely infuriates me! This is the direction we are going as a country. If you dislike a member of our President’s Cabinet, harass them enough and eventually they will walk away. Scott Pruitt was a hero in my book given how he fought the previous administration and has reversed a majority of the BS from the previous administration.

    I absolutely agree with him that the President was given to us from our Father in Heaven at this point in time.

    We will absolutely defeat Evil! I can’t wait until November to begin the process of destroying the Democrat Party. That is exactly what will happen given events like this one today. Enjoy your so called victory because the Trump Army will win this WAR!

      • Here’s my 2 cents on Laura: She is a self-righteous, man hating, overbearing, unteachable, unhappy harpie.

        I could write paragraphs on her default to the feminist (actually the “SheWoman Man Haters Club”) agenda. One glaring example: She repeated for DAYS that she found the Roy Moore accusers “credible”. How does anybody in their right mind believe the wholesale BS from these harpies with all the conflicting decades old “remembrances”? And the list goes on and on……

        Another big fat tell about her man hating: Her beta male BrokeBack Alter Boy Raymond side kick- whom she calls “Felix Unger”. Could one find any less masculine and any less puerile foil? And OMGosh is he dumb.

        She has actually gotten worse with time. I used to enjoy her show in the background while I worked. I tuned out about a year ago as I could no longer stomach her condescending Feminist Borgolio inspired dogma.

      I loved the bravery in him- and watching the all fronts battle against him confirmed that he is a great man, and one of us!

      On an aside- Men, especially men who have hewn out a sovereign life for themselves and their family in the private world- ones who come from the battle field and not the Ivory Towers, find themselves ill-equipped to flawlessly navigate today’s “everything is a trigger” world. Little slip-ups that are not malicious nor illegal can put a crack in the door that Satan’s venom can ooze through and poison much.

      I am more and more persuaded that we as leaders must act as if we are in Church as we navigate the world’s black waters. EVERYTHING we do can and will be used against us.
      God bless Scott Pruitt and his family. I have great empathy for him as I too would probably have done a few of the things he did- not knowing how easily the “gotcha” happens.

    The great thing about this resignation is the timing. Dems can’t walk and chew gum at the same time, far less organize to resist the SC pick AND raise a big hullaballoo about Pruitt simultaneously.

    Lost in the shuffle.

    And his replacement looks to have the same ability and inclination to continue doing what needs to be done from a policy viewpoint, without attracting quite the same attention.

    We’ve known this was going to happen for some time and the resignation of Justice Kennedy has provided the opportune time to slide Pruitt out the door with the least amount of fuss.

    Scott Pruitt did yeoman’s work inside the walls of the EPA which fully supported President Trump. President Trump said just that.

    Scott Pruitt also did some stupid, ham-handed stuff that fed, overfed and stuffed the Hate Trump Media with a banquet of invective to throw back at Scott Pruitt. And they did. They gave it to him 24-7 and much of it he could not duck or deny or explain.

    President Trump is far from sad to see him go. The very last thing President Trump needs is someone who has an overblown sense of self-entitlement and goes about grifting and feathering his nest with perks and goodies. In fact, Pruitt’s job was to keep his head down, keep his nose clean and to Make America Great Again by following the lead of President Donald J. Trump. Instead, Pruitt made himself a lightning rod and supplied his enemies with the ammunition they used against him. He needed to go. He is gone. Good.

        Of course you do. If I’m not, your mono dimensional “Pruitt is blameless” narrative is invalid.

    Ethics complaints by whom?

    Perhaps we should study how to bring Ethics complaints.

    I’m sure that there are plenty of ethics complaints that need to be filed by Treepers.

    You know how they take Bad Teachers and stick them in a room where they can no longer harm anyone (since they can’t fire them?). That’s what they need to to the EPA. You stick those radicals in a room with a bunch of weed and movies and let them sit there while we fix the mess they have made.

    Scott Pruitt is a patriot who made great progress dismantling the overreaching and corrupt EPA. President Trump will appoint another patriot to finish the job. Then the EPA should be reduced to a small desk, manned by one federal employee with a dial telephone and a file cabinet.

    Well…phooey.
    Otoh, this is Great!
    Do “they” not realize what “they” have now unleashed? Scott Pruitt. Scott Pruitt has been unleashed.

    Scott Pruitt. With a year and a half of intimate insider knowledge of the EPA.
    Scott Pruitt. Who now knows names, places, and people best to target.
    Scott Pruitt. Who now may freely speak his mind, with an army of Oklahomans (and us) behind him.
    Scott Pruitt, former Attorney General of Oklahoma, who also possesses outstanding legal knowledge of how best to target EPA overreach.

    One should pity the poor bastids who now stand in Scott Pruitt’s way. But not this tiime.
    Go get ’em, Director Pruitt. We gotcher back.

  32. Having closely followed Scott Pruitt during his tenure as Oklahoma Attorney General, I noticed shady activity on his part and was surprised when Trump chose him for head of the EPA. Then I recalled how fond he was of oil company money and that he would be in the perfect position to pay the oil companies back at the same time he was slashing bad regulations. A double-win for Pruitt!

    Sadly, while Pruitt was doing a great job at the EPA, he gave the enemy ammunition. Like he didn’t know they’d be gunning for him!

    One of Scott Pruitt’s questionable decisions as Oklahoma’s Attorney General was wasting a bunch of taxpayers’ money suing the state of Colorado for legalizing cannabis, claiming Oklahoma Troopers were being overcome by people bringing Colorado pot into Oklahoma. An OK TV station interviewed an officer from the part of the state in question; he said they were having no problems. (And Pruitt’s lawsuit failed.)

    Conservatives are all about “states’ rights”, but Pruitt was suing a state over their right. That is snaky. The EPA will do just fine without him.

    POTUS will lose good people (or good potential people) if things are not stopped. Especially the ladies. Regardless of taking the time to get things all perfect and dotting i’s and crossing t’s. It is hard enough to find people who want to really get into the Trump pedal to the metal speed and direction.

    I am curious why Mulvaney has not been targeted. I would think he would be top of the list for protests.

    Very angry about this. We can not give them an inch and reward their bad behavior. Hopefully POTUS will find another use for Pruitt and replace him with someone they will hate even more !

    Pruitt went after the Obama EPA’s overreach, but he also went after ethanol, so he was fighting the entire Swamp collectively. He was doomed. He had to be squeaky clean, and he obviously wasn’t. Trump is squeaky clean, and he’ll find somebody else to do the same job Pruitt was. It’s a good lesson. Stay clean, especially if The Donald has told you to do so.
