Good Day World!
Every corporation that wants a pass on Clean Water compliance is invited to privately meet with one of Trump's parasites in power...Scott Pruitt.
In a new directive, Pruitt said he will make final critical decisions about preservation of streams, ponds and wetlands.
In the memo, Pruitt directed EPA regional offices to "cede their Clean Water Act determinations" to him.
In other words, Pruitt intends to disregard any suggestions that EPA scientists and local EPA officials make, and to pursue his overriding agenda of doing away with all the nations protection for our waterways.
The result of the new memo:
Pruitt, who knows nothing about local environmental conditions, will be making the decisions about wetlands and waterways he's probably never seen.
Prior to the memo, Headquarters approval was just a rubber stamp because they knew regional offices and scientists had the expertise.
The latest move by Pruitt is his Plan B, as it is becoming increasingly clear that his Clean Water rewrite plan is illegal and will be tossed out in court.
Pruitt is only one example of how Trump plants partisan ticks into key government positions in order to further his hateful agendas.
Let's not forget, this is the same scumbag that's already under scrutiny for renting a room in a condo from the wife of an energy lobbyist and for a $120,000 work trip to Italy last year.
The Atlantic also pointed out yesterday that Pruitt put in for huge raise for two of his Oklahoma buddies, and the White House turned him down; which apparently didn't stop him from still finagling a $28,000, and $57,000, raise for them.
After the Atlantic's report, Pruitt claimed he didn't know jack didley shit about those raises, and as soon as he found out he rescinded them immediately.
Yeah, right Pru boy.
Meanwhile, the courts are doing their part in trying to protect the country.
Still, it's going to take a big turnout of Democratic voters in the midterms to start reversing Trump's parasitic infections in our government.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
