Analysis: Scott Pruitt Is #Winning, Bans Junk Science from Environmental Protection Agency

Junk science is no longer welcome at the Environmental Protection Agency. Administrator Scott Pruitt has declared war on what he calls “secret science” – the process whereby EPA regulators have been able to craft rules using non-publicly-available science data. Pruitt told Daily Caller: “We need to make sure their data and methodology are published as part of the record. Otherwise, it’s not transparent. It’s not objectively measured, and that’s important.” This decision will correct a longstanding injustice at the EPA, perpetrated against the U.S. taxpayer. For years the EPA has been able to behave as a law unto itself, cavalierly passing regulations which restrict freedoms, hamper business and hold back the U.S. economy for reasons which have much more to do with left-leaning environmentalist politics than with objective science. The problem dates back to the early 1990s when the EPA decided it wanted to regulate fine particulate matter known as PM2.5 but couldn’t find any hard scientific evidence proving it was harmful. Steve Milloy takes up the story in the Wall Street Journal: “PM2.5 was not known to cause death, but by 1994 EPA-supported scientists had developed two lines of research purporting to show that it did. When the studies were run past the EPA’s Clean Air Science Advisory Committee, it balked. It believed the studies relied on dubious statistical analysis and asked for the underlying data. The EPA ignored the request. As the EPA prepared to issue its proposal for PM2.5 regulation in 1996, Congress stepped in. Rep. Thomas Bliley, chairman of the House Commerce Committee, sent a sharply written letter to Administrator Carol Browner asking for the data underlying studies. Ms. Browner delegated the response to a subordinate, who told Mr. Bliley the EPA saw “no useful purpose” in obtaining the data. Congress responded by inserting a provision in a 1998 bill requiring that data used to support federal regulation must be made available to the public via the Freedom of Information Act. But it was hastily written, and a federal appellate court held the law unenforceable in 2003. The controversy went dormant until 2011, when a newly Republican Congress took exception to the Obama EPA’s anticoal rules, which relied on the same PM2.5 studies. Again the EPA was defiant. Administrator Gina McCarthy refused requests for the data sets and defied a congressional subpoena.” The EPA has form here. Its first administrator, William Ruckelshaus banned the use of DDT in the U.S. despite copious evidence that it was not harmful to human life. A seven month EPA hearing, presided over by Judge Edmund Sweeney, concluded in a 9,000 page document: “DDT is not a carcinogenic hazard to man…DDT is not a mutagenic or teratogenic hazard to man…The use of DDT under the regulations involved here do not have a deleterious effect on freshwater fish, estuarine organisms, wild birds or other wildlife.” Ruckelshaus simply ignored it because it did not suit the result he wanted. Needless to say, the environmentalists are furious that the EPA now has to stick to science rather than political activism. The New York Times has billed it as “an attack on science” – as if, somehow, scientific experiments conducted in secret for political ends are somehow more representative of “science” than experiments which are both open and independently reproducible.

Agreed!!  And well said, James.  James Delingpole is responsible for that outstanding op/ed.  For more, click on the text above.   Excellent!!     🙂

More Joy Reid Anti-Gay Writings Discovered — MSNBC Host Claims Site was Hacked

Joy Reid’s old blog, The Reid Report (2000-2014), is littered with even more anti-gay posts than were originally discovered, reports the far-left blog Mediate. The MSNBC host is claiming these latest discoveries were not written by her, but by hackers as a means “to taint my character.” Earlier this year, Reid admitted to authoring a number of posts on her old site that mercilessly ridiculed then-Republican Florida Governor Charlie Crist as a homosexual (even after he married a woman). Reid was clearly using homosexuality as a pejorative, as a weapon of ridicule, so the left-wing MSNBC anchor’s homophobia has already been well- established. Nevertheless, after she apologized for this (and because she is not a conservative), Reid was allowed to resume a media career that traffics in conspiracy theories, race-baiting, and uninformed Trump-bashing. To see some the new finds on Reid’s old site that she claims she did not write, just click here:

Wow..  We all know how much of a brazen hypocrite Joy is.  But, you really need to click on the above and read this..  Thanks to John Nolte for bringing this to our attention..  Unreal…

Starnes: It’s time to make a shocking confession about Chick-fil-A

In recent days, The New Yorker has made some downright scurrilous accusations about Chick-fil-A, the unofficial chicken of our Lord. The magazine warned that the beloved fast food restaurant was waging a “guerrilla insurgency” upon Gotham’s citizenry – plotting to evangelize the city by luring the masses with plump, juicy chicken breasts tucked between hot, buttered buns. “The brand’s arrival here feels like an infiltration, in no small part because of its pervasive Christian traditionalism,” lamented Dan Piepenbring in an essay titled “Chick-fil-A’s Creepy Infiltration of New York City.” Piepenbring seemed terribly disturbed by the news that a fourth outpost of the family-owned chain had recently opened – as if the Chick-fil-A Cows were about to stampede through the East Village. “Its headquarters, in Atlanta, are adorned with Bible verses and a statue of Jesus washing a disciple’s feet,” he wrote. “Its stores close on Sundays.” And like any progressive journalist, he offered up the obligatory Chick-fil-A is “anti-gay” smear. Untrue, of course, but whatever. “The restaurant’s corporate purpose still begins with the words ‘to glorify God,’ and that proselytism thrums below the surface of the Fulton Street restaurant, which has the ersatz homespun ambiance of a megachurch,” he wrote. And he was especially wary of the famed Chick-fil-A Cows. “If the restaurant is a megachurch, the Cows are its ultimate evangelists,” Piepenbring declared. Well, praise the Lord and drink some sweet tea! “Its politics, its décor, and its commercial-evangelical messaging are infected with this suburban piety,” he wrote. Well, America – the time has come for you to know the truth. The New Yorker caught us red-handed. The jig is up. The truth is months ago a covert team of specially trained Southern Christians crossed the Mason-Dixon Line along with a herd of grammatically-challenged bovines. Our mission was to convert the Yankee heathens with gracious Southern hospitality and delicious chicken sandwiches. And our plan would’ve worked had it not been for those meddling members of the Mainstream Media. After about a week of eating fried chicken and drinking sweet tea, New Yorkers had become so much more pleasant and docile. Brooklynites had even started waving at tourists with all five fingers instead of one. Now, that is the power of the Gospel Bird. So let not your heart be troubled, America – because glory, glory hallelujah – the War of Poultry Aggression rages on.

HAHAHA!!  That was EXCELLENT!  Thanks to veteran culture warrior Todd Starnes for that witty op/ed in support of Chick-fil-A, which is about to overtake Taco Bell as the third most popular fast food restaurant in America….and that’s with it being closed nationwide one day week!  This idiot pin-head from The New Yorker has just exposed himself for being the anti-Christian bigot that HE is.  Chick-fil-A doesn’t discriminate in its hiring practices and welcomes everyone regardless of race, religion (or lack thereof), gender, age, etc.  It’s just closed on Sundays.  That’s all!  How an employee spends the day off is her/her business.  The owner/founder of the company decided when he founded Chick-fil-A that he wanted his business closed on Sundays so he and his employees could go to church, if they wanted to.  If they didn’t want to, and wanted to do something else, or nothing at all, then that was their prerogative.  Imagine that!   But this idiot writer at The New Yorker can’t handle it.  He’s just a foaming at the mouth liberal who hates Christians.  Kudos to Todd for calling him out on his hypocritical bigotry.  Outstanding!    🙂

CUNY Law Students Shout ‘F*ck the Law’, Try to Shut Down Conservative Guest Lecturer

Students at the City University of New York School of Law tried to shut down a guest lecture from South Texas College of Law Professor Josh Blackman this week. Professor Blackman, who was named to Forbes‘ “30 under 30” for “Law and Policy,” spoke this week at the CUNY School of Law. Blackman was scheduled to give a lecture entitled “Importance of Free Speech on Campus.” Blackman was met with a horde of protesters shouting “shame on you!” when he went to enter the event room. “You wrote that I supported the president’s decision to rescind DACA. I actually support the DREAM act. I actually think the DREAM act is a good piece of legislation…my position is that the policy itself is not consistent with the rule of law, which teaches a lesson: you can support something as a matter of policy but then find out that the law doesn’t permit it.” “Fuck the law,” one protester shouted. “It’s a bizarre thing to say, ‘Fuck the law,’ when you are in law school,” Blackman responded. Shortly after Blackman began his speech, the protesters dispersed. Many left the room and a few stayed behind and engaged in a back and forth with Blackman. One protester held a sign that read “oppressors are not welcome here,” while he pressed Blackman on his views on various topics. Blackman claimed in his blog post that the student protesters who left the event marched over to the dean’s office to complain that they allowed the event to take place. Only a few students attended the event. In his blog post, Blackman explained that some students were pressured by their peers into skipping the event. “I learned that some students were either ashamed, or intimidated, and did not want to be seen as attending the event,” Blackman wrote. “A number of students thanked me after the event, and explained that conservative speech is stifled on campus not by the faculty, but by the students. The students swarm on anyone who does not toe the progressive line.”

Typical liberal, college “snowflakes..”  They’re all for free speech…until you say something they don’t agree with.  Then, they want to censor you, and intimidate those who might want to espouse, or even listen to, an opposing view.  And God forbid that view be a conservative person/viewpoint!  These protestors actually stood behind Professor Blackman with signs about “Free Speech”…while trying to shout him down and prevent him from, well, exercising HIS right to free speech.  The sad thing is that they’re too stupid to understand the irony and hypocrisy of their actions.  To see a video of this exchange and the way Mr. Blackman was treated by these obnoxious kids, just click on the text above.  Unreal..

California college hosts no-whites-allowed pool party

A private college in California will be hosting a pool party later today at which white people will be excluded, with only “people who identify as POC” permitted to attend. “POC” stands for “person of color.” The event will take place at Scripps College’s Sallie Tiernan Field House pool, according to The Claremont Independent. A Facebook announcement of the event lists the party as being hosted by Café Con Leche, a student group identified in the post as “the badass Latinx at Scripps.” “Bring your chanclas and the homies over to our nice ass resort pool, LET’S TAKE UP SPACE,” the announcement reads, advertising the event as “a safe space for…students that identify as POC to come together and build community.” “Enjoy some yummy snacks, tunes that slappp, and the company of other POC,” the listing reads. The announcement also advises attendees to anticipate “an anonymous Google form to notify us of people we should keep out <for the safety and comfort of all>!” An anonymous student told The Independent that the party is meant to “promote inclusivity and congeniality between ethnic minorities.” “Most POCs at any of the Claremont Colleges (which are historically PWIs (Predominantly White Institutions)) interact and enjoy interacting with people of all races (obviously including white people), but sometimes it’s nice to have a time to be with people who identify in the same or similar way that you do,” the student said.

Wow…   Just fathom if there had been a pool party for whites only.  This story would be EVERYWHERE in the dominantly liberal mainstream media.   But, only the College Fix carried this one..  Typical, brazen hypocrisy by the liberal media…

Muslim group sues to block Trump terrorism report

Two anti-Trump organizations filed a lawsuit Monday arguing that a government report earlier this year linking immigrants to most of the country’s terrorism cases since 2001 is so misleading that it violates federal law. The request seeks to recruit federal judges to police the accuracy of the administration, in what — if it’s successful — could become a model for anti-Trump groups to push back on a president they see as having a tenuous connection to the truth. The January report concluded that 73 percent of the 549 people convicted of international terrorism between 2001 and 2016 were foreign born. Activists were infuriated by the report at the time, and now two groups — Muslim Advocates and Democracy Forward — have sued, saying the investigation “misleadingly inflates the threat they pose to the United States,” and “inaccurately” focuses on Muslims. “The report perpetuates the ongoing stigmatization of immigrants and Muslims by the administration,” the groups said. “For example, the Trump administration has used the report to justify its sweeping ban on the entry of nationals from six Muslim-majority countries into the United States. It has also specifically tied the report’s findings to its calls for an end to the issuance of diversity and family reunification visas, which would have a significant negative impact on Muslim immigrants.” At stake is the Information Quality Act, which lays out the goal of government information being accurate, and creates a process for the public to demand corrections, with the agencies required to respond to those requests within 60 days. Neither the Justice Department nor Homeland Security, which co-authored the report, responded to the groups’ requests, they said. The groups want the courts to declare the report inaccurate and issue an order banning them from disseminating it. The Justice Department declined to comment. The report has been widely used by the Trump administration, which pointed to the findings in calling for stricter immigration and travel controls.

Soo..  To be clear…  These liberal, anti-Trump, Muslim-advocacy groups want the courts to censor a report issued jointly by the DOJ and Homeland Security, because they don’t like what that report says.  That would be terrible!  Americans need to know the truth about Muslim immigrant crime, which is much greater than most Americans are aware, in large part because the dominantly liberal mainstream media won’t report on it.

Jimmy Kimmel’s attack on Melania Trump is despicable and wouldn’t be tolerated for any other immigrant

On Monday, the White House held its 140th annual Easter Egg Roll. The event, hosted by Melania Trump, featured children adorably pushing eggs along the White House lawn. In a bizarre response, late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel launched an attack on Melania Trump over the event. First he derided Melania as being uninvolved in the set-up of the event. “Not a chance she did one thing to help set that up. There’s no — she didn’t dye eggs, she didn’t fill baskets.” Did Michelle Obama dye eggs or fill baskets? Where was Kimmel to question her efforts during the eight years of the Obama administration? Next, Kimmel mocked Melania Trump’s accent. This type of anti-immigrant attack is only OK for leftists to make on people like Melania. Diversity is important to the left, as long as it doesn’t include any diversity of opinion or departure from what is expected from you. Hillary Clinton wasn’t some little Tammy Wynette “stand by your man” type, even though she ultimately was, but Melania Trump is expected to leave her husband, shun him, speak out against him publicly otherwise she deserves the wrath of people like Jimmy Kimmel. I’m an immigrant, I came to the U.S. as a child from the Soviet Union and I frequently get these kinds of attacks from the left when I write something with which they disagree. “Go back to where you came from” is standard. As I said, this kind of othering is only OK when aimed at immigrants for whom the left has no need. Why take a supposed comedian and his taunts seriously? In the past few years Kimmel has moved beyond comedy to political activism. When his son was sick he took to his show crying and speaking out in support of saving ObamaCare. After the Las Vegas shooting, Kimmel openly blamed Republicans – first the politicians, then anyone on the right. After blaming U.S House speaker Paul Ryan by name, he followed up the next night targeting all people who disagreed with his gun positions by saying Republicans know “in their hearts” that they bear some responsibility for the slaughter. This is not a comedy show and Kimmel shouldn’t have cover for his anti-immigrant comments because he’s an alleged “comedian.” His attack on Melania is despicable and wouldn’t be tolerated for any other First Lady or immigrant. It shouldn’t be tolerated for Melania Trump either.

Agreed!!  And well said, Karol.  Columnist Karol Markowicz is responsible for that piece.  Yeah, just fathom if some white guy on late night tv attacked Michell O. that way..  He’d be branded a racist, bigot, and so on…and then be unemployed the next day.  We ALL know that’s true.  But, because Melania is married to President Trump, he can get away with being such a jerk.  Typical double standard by the dominantly liberal mainstream media.  And yes, while Jimmy used to be a comedian…and was somewhat funny, actually..  He has now morphed into this obnoxious, political activist who really isn’t that smart.  Melania speaks 5 languages.  He Jimmy!  How many can you speak?  Tool..
