Scott Pruittís EPA Is Crazyland

August 22nd, 2017 by Guest Contributor

SNIPPET:

Until now, Ronald Reagan-appointed Anne Gorsuch Burford [mother of nepotistic stolen-seat Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch] was the worst administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency in its nearly half-century of existence. She cut its budget by a fifth and worked diligently to please polluting industries that she claimed were over-regulated. She was just one appointee during Reaganís terms chosen to run agencies or departments they didnít even think should exist. But in six months, Scott Pruitt, the EPA-hating head of the EPA, has stolen the worst-ever title from her.

Coral Davenport and Eric Lipton at The New York Times report that Pruitt has injected a sense of paranoia at the agency, making career employees feel as if they are the enemy. Those staffers say floors at EPA HQ are frequently locked, and if they wish to see Pruitt, they must have an escort. They are often told to leave their cellphones behind and not to take notes in meetings with him:

ďMr. Pruitt, according to the employees, who requested anonymity out of fear of losing their jobs, often makes important phone calls from other offices rather than use the phone in his office, and he is accompanied, even at E.P.A. headquarters, by armed guards, the first head of the agency to ever request round-the-clock security.

Agelbert NOTE: If I were busy degrading the biosphere on behalf of the polluters, I would want 24/7 security too. People have a tendency to take offense to being poisoned for polluter profit...

But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it. -- Proverbs 2:22 KJV
Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart:
wait, I say, on the Lord. -- Psalm 27:14
