Skip to comments.EPA waives fee requests for friendly groups, denies conservative groups
Posted on 05/17/2013 10:18:15 PM PDT by Kartographer
For 92 percent of requests from green groups, the EPA cooperated by waiving fees for the information. Those requests came from the Natural Resources Defense Council, EarthJustice, Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility, The Waterkeeper Alliance, Greenpeace, Southern Environmental Law Center and the Center for Biological Diversity.
Of the requests that were denied, the EPA said the group either didnt respond to requests for justification of a waiver, or didnt express intent to disseminate the information to the general public, according to documents obtained by The Washington Examiner.
CEI, on the other hand, had its requests denied 93 percent of the time. One request was denied because CEI failed to express its intent to disseminate the information to the general public. The rest were denied because the agency said CEI failed to demonstrate that the release of the information requested significantly increases the public understanding of government operations or activities.

Remember Gibson? This 6 min video is telling and shows the power of these reckless liberals. Worth the watch.
I hope our side is smart enough to use the EPA scandal to educate the citizenry to the importance of businesses thriving in the US and how that affects their wallets. There won’t be a better opportunity.
Heck with the election! We need to see that these criminals go behind bars.
EPA, IRS, How many other Government agencies.
You think this is bad , you aint seen nothing yet.
Wait until these Affirmative action jobbers get in control of your life through Obamacare.
Obama and the left would love to see the USA sink into 3rd world status......indeed that is their goal. No other explanation to allowing China drill for oil 90 miles off the FL coast while we cannot drill. The enemy lies within.
Somebody, please, somebody step up an impeach our dear leader. He might not get thrown out of office, but at least the record will show he was impeached.
Clinton was impeached for offences far less then the offences this a$shole has committed.......
That will never happen, his best insurance is Shotgun Joe
There's a consistent modus operandi in every case. Obama doesn't run anything, so there are no dots that will ever connect to him. He went to bed while Benghazi unfolded, after telling someone else, "Deal with it."
This is his signature approach to governing, it insulates him from all accountability. Negligence, abandonment, reckless endangerment of America -- who's going to charge him with that? Where does it say he has to do anything himself rather than delegate to others?
All he has to do is select the people who'll do what he wants done, who hate America as he does...and make a speech now and then.
He isn't even useful anymore, since people are tired of his speeches. The vermin are all in place, in government, in academia, in the media. It's no surprise he has a food taster, since the only usefulness of Obama now is, well, remains to be seen, as they say in Red Square.
If that! So few Americans continue to prize liberty anyway, one may reasonably doubt that tyranny needs another wax idol.
as much as i’d love to see Obama and half his appointees in prison this will come down to the phrase, ‘plausible deniability.’
it’s one of those phrases that can be stretched twisted and bent into the most contortionist shapes and still function.
“F_ck them and feed them fishheads.”
....and feed them to the fish (sharks)
There, fixed it.
I agree, but not because of Biden. Obama won't be impeached because there is no evidence on him personally. No fingerprints on the hoofprints.
PS: Love your tagline!
The Examiner has vastly improved in content since a few years ago when their bloggers trolled FR for hits but their website still has more pop ups, flashing ads, cookies, spyware and junk than any other site I know. They're the internet equivalent of a traveling carnival side show on the bad side of town.
How are we ever going to clean out government agencies ?
They’re infested. Worse than termites...
How about the NRLB (Boeing in South Carolina) or the Interior Dept (drilling leases, Pigford II)? Every arm of the federal government has been turned into a political apparatchik for the tyrant occupying the White House. Do we honestly believe he will leaving quietly when his time is up?
Do you think America can last as a ‘somewhat’ free nation until the next election?
Look at all the revelations that are occurring and have occurred: Marco Rubio after cobbling together a plan for immigration that will open the floodgates to penniless dregs of their societies, plans a scheme to require all to carry identity cards....ALL OF US.
Our military, staffed by political officials, have issued a proclamation, endorsed by Barky the Muslim, that they solely will be the power to handle any civil unrest.
Scandal after scandal has been unveiled, debated and then probably kicked under the rug as a lobotomized America forgets and then looks the other way.
We’re going to need more than a drumbeat.
There is still the sex scandal at DHS, which was revealed before the election, and then little more was heard about. Female harassment and mistreatment of men.
More and more, these scandals amount to tyranny. They are all related.
Just one more federal bureaucracy that needs to be dismantled.
I suspect there are scandals brewing in every corner of the Obama administration. There’s no point in controlling the world’s most powerful government if you can’t use it as a weapon against your enemies.
