As you likely know, on June 29, 2015 the Supreme Court ruled the EPA must take into account the cost of their regulations on the energy industry. The Supreme Court is to be lauded for this decision. It is a step in the right direction. If the EPA can be held to this new restriction, perhaps the coal industry can survive and continue to provide reasonably priced electricity for the citizens. Otherwise, all bets are off. To learn more, click on this link.
The EPA has been busy intimidating the property owners of America for decades. There power will only increase exponentially if the Waters of the United States rule (WOTUS), which will federalize all the water in America, is allowed to stand.
What would you do if the EPA showed up on your property and told you that you had not properly permitted your pond and you would be fined up to $37,500/day unless you filled it back in? Oh, yeh, you have several small children and a wife, all who need a roof over their head and three meals a day. Would you do the right thing and fight the EPA, since you know that you filed all the necessary permits in advance of building your pond?

Economic equity/justice, one of the 3 E’s that drive Agenda 21 policies, requires a strong centralized government to take control of the entire economy, one company, one sector at a time, forcing them to do the bidding of the government. Once this occurs the free market has been replaced by fascism. This article show how over time this occurs.
You should imagine as you read this article, that the government (and its minion the EPA) is the spider, who has woven its web, and Volkswagen is the fly, who admittedly allowed itself to get caught in the web, but once there is at the mercy of the spider. The outcome is a foregone conclusion. The fly, to get free of the web, will accede to any request/demand made by the spider-anything, even the loss of its autonomy-as long as the spider promises to not eat it. One-by-one all the flies are captured and put under the control of the spider.
And that, my friends, is how a free market is turned into a fascist regime!

New Septic System Regulations Advance the Wildlands Project
The author of this newsletter lives in Ohio. On January 1, 2015 a new set of septic system regulations were enacted. These regulations apply to the estimated 660,000 homes in Ohio which have a septic system. The regulations are being pushed down stream by the EPA, to the Ohio EPA, written by the Ohio Health Board who then mandated the regulations be implemented by the each of the county’s health boards. Notice these are all unelected boards. This leaves your local elected officials impotent on the side-lines unavailable to provide interventions for their citizens.
The county health departments in Ohio now have the right, without any proof of a septic issue, to come onto your property unannounced. If you refuse, the sheriff will be called. The rules authorize county health boards to order homeowners to fix or replace failing septic systems and to turn the order over to the county prosecutor for enforcement if it’s ignored. Homeowners charged with creating a public nuisance could face civil fines of up to $100 a day and daily criminal fines of up to $1,000. Continue reading
Remember that while the1992 treaty Agenda for the 21st Century was never ratified by the Senate, its principles of economic, environmental, and social justice were embedded into every federal agency through the efforts of the Clinton administration. The result was rogue agencies where the bureaucrats in these agencies became unanswerable to the People. These agencies instead were mandated to do whatever was necessary to transform America into a socialist country un-tethered from its founding values and principles. This required the agencies to ignore the facts and to find “experts” who, after being bribed with federal grants, would reach consensus to whatever statements advanced social, economic, and/or environmental justice goals.
Imagine the fear felt by those in the EPA when Scott Pruitt, with a clear goal to reform the EPA by requiring it to use facts and the scientific method instead of consensus, became head of the EPA. To read more about the EPA’s painful journey towards reform, click on this link.
This five year old EPA internal memo makes it clear the EPA in 2009 knew the public was either unconvinced of the “reality” of Global Warming or unconcerned about its impact. Using this as the starting point in this article, the EPA then set out to explain their strategies to get the minds of the American people right.
Acknowledging that the use of the Polar Bear and melting ice sheets was no longer an effective emotional ploy, the EPA outlined a number of strategies to spread the message of global warming. These include “using the trades (i.e. unions) and environmental reporters” to spread the message, increase the amount of media exposure by reaching out to media members that serve the minority communities, and upping the level of environmental terror foisted on the citizen by linking environmental justice issues to the health of the citizen and their children. If only the left, instead of regulating us to death, strategized so aggressively in order to maintain our freedoms. To read more click on this link.
