Is Big Green running things in President Obama's Environmental Protection Agency? Wake up and smell the corruption.
A virulent 2009 sue-and-settle lawsuit, WildEarth Guardians v.

Rather than defend these cases, EPA simply chose to settle and sign a consent decree agreeing to new enforcement deadlines negotiated with the green groups, not the states, which weren't even notified. WEG's case dealt with the south-central states including New Mexico -- EPA Region 6 -- where the administrator was Al Armendariz, the man later forced to resign after a video became public of him expressing admiration for how the Roman legions used random crucifixions to enforce obedience among Roman subjects.
The EPA is arguably one of the most corrupt and dangerous agencies in our government. It is also one of the most costly; not just in baseline budget, but the funding of activists through lawsuits such as those discussed here.
The EPA was set up to be a one-stop-shopping center for ALL “enviro” based lawsuits.
If oil and gas states don’t raise a stink over this newest naked power grab by the enviro-nazis, they want to die under a ton of EPA regulations.
Thanks for the ping!
