Threats Surge Against EPA and Administrator Pruitt

(Emily Larsen, Liberty Headlines) Threats against EPA employees have spiked 50 percent in 2017.

Governors, AGs Ask New EPA Head to Get Agency Off Their Backs

The threats are likely due in part to outrage over Trump’s EPA administrator Scott Pruitt and measures he’s taken to roll back environmental regulations, such as this week’s announcement to roll back Obama’s Clean Power Plan.

According to a report from NBC Washington, the EPA’s Office of Inspector General has launched 70 investigations into these threats this year.

“The EPA as an organization is a lightning rod for people on both sides of the political equation for either not enforcing the environmental laws or enforcing the environmental laws too heavily,” EPA Assistant Inspector General Patrick Sullivan told E&E News.

Pruitt is a particularly controversial member of the cabinet. In his previous position as Oklahoma attorney general, he aggressively fought EPA regulations on energy in his state, suing the agency 13 times. He described himself on LinkedIn page as “a leading advocate against the EPA’s activist agenda,” and openly questions human causes of climate change.

Those opposing Pruitt’s appointment and enforcement don’t hesitate to make themselves heard. In April, around the time of Earth Day, he faced protesters in Dallas and Chicago.

“How much have you been paid to do this?” shouted one protester. “You’re a monster!”

The EPA’s inspector general opened three investigations into threats specifically against the Administrator. One postcard mailed to Pruitt read, “Get out while you still can, Scott,” and “You are evil incarnate.”

In the months since he took office, Pruitt has already taken several measures to roll back environmental regulations. On Tuesday, he announced the withdrawal of Obama’s Clean Power Plan, which placed severe regulations on greenhouse gas emissions.

Members of the Western Congressional Caucus applauded the move to end the Clean Power Plan and end the war on coal.

“President Obama’s ‘Clean Power Plan’ threatened to force hundreds of coal-fired power plants to shut their doors, driving up energy costs across America,” said Rep. Adrian Smith in a statement. “Those hurt the most by these misguided, job-killing policies are typically the ones who can afford it least.”

PREVIOUSLY: Enviros Threaten EPA Over Repeal of Obama’s Global Warming Rule

Pruitt has moved to undo or roll back more EPA regulations than any other previous administrator. He also reversed a ban on the use of certain pesticides, and will steer the United States’ withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement.

The EPA’s Office of the Inspector General didn’t investigate any threats made against the EPA Administrator during Obama’s first term, Lisa Jackson, and investigated three threats against Obama’s second term EPA Administrator, Gina McCarthy.

Costs for Pruitt’s security detail in his first three months were nearly double that of Jackson or McCarthy. Pruitt and the Trump administration have been criticized for spending so much on security detail, and not enough on EPA agents investigating environmental crimes.

Michael Hubbard, a former EPA special agent, told the Washington Post that some EPA investigators have been tapped to be part of Pruitt’s security detail.

“These guys signed on to work on complex environmental cases, not to be an executive protection detail,” Hubbard said.

The FBI identifies eco-terrorists as a legitimate security threat to government agencies and businesses. In May, two radical environmental activists took responsibility for arson at Dakota Access Pipeline sites.

    It may be time to designate these whacko environmental groups as terrorist organizations. These people have been known to use violence in the past against their perceived enemies and are quite willing to do it again. We’ve seen a rising tide of violence from these leftist organizations that are supported by people like George Soros and the Socialist Democratic Party. This should be nipped in the bud or we may well pay a steep price for our neglect.

    • deanbob

      If those who fund violence are held responsible, they just may change their behavior. But, how does one penalize someone worth ~$25B?

      • Danny

        Declare them a enemy of the state and their supporters per executive order Obama signed and is still in effect. Put the supporters in Gitmo including Sores, Obama and Clinton.

            You are confused, terribly so.
            The spew that flows from your mouth bears no resemblance to what was taught in the 1950s and 1960s
            The prime evidence of that is your penchant for nursery school, name-calling. If you grew up in the 1950s ansd 1960s, you would have learned what it was to be a “real man” instead of a pansy, name-caller. You would not be illiterate.

          • Foy

            The problem with going back to take the history lessons is when were you in history class ? Was it before or after the Liberals revised history to suit their agenda ? What the schools are teaching to our children and grand children now has very little to do with actual history.

        You make all very good points. I prefer “Patriots” to Terrorists. Lets remember that the Boston Tea Party was not a riot but a premeditated military act of by the citizens whose rights were being trampled on., very much like the Obama Adm. did for 8 yrs. Riots are not a tradition, legal protests are. What we have witnessed is Anarchy committed by Marxists hiding behind the cover of the Democratic Party with the aid of George Soros’ money. Soros is committing Sedition and Treason with his financing of these Riots that they were describing as Protests. Finally, You do not damage property or beat up people doing a protest, these thugs all should have been rounded up and brought to justice and serve multi years in prison for what they did.

        • AKLady

          Why do you blame Soros? Is it because he is Jewish?
          Why do you lie about Democrats?
          Why don’t you give equal time to “Republican” violence funded by the Koch brothers? Are you aware that Daddy was a founding member od the John Birch Society?

          Sorry, every major riot in the U.S. has included violence. Here are a few examples: http://www.history.com/news/history-lists/6-violent-uprisings-in-the-united-states

          • Slav2012

            Soros was a Nazi collaborator who sold his own people to the concenteation camps. Hes not denied it. Indeed from what we read in the history books, the Nazis couldnt have run the camps without help from Jewish collaborators.

          • AKLady

            Soros was born in 1930.

            And now Soros thinks he is God. If you believe Soros is a good man doing good works for the common man, you are disturbed. He is evil and his supporters are morons. People like you wrap yourselves in the constitution when it’s helpful, and spit on it when it’s not. History is written by the victors. The Left has not won and our great president ,Donald J.

      • JohnnyHiott

        Thank you aklady, the laws are acceptable to me in the USA. I simply want them enforced. Obviously your perspective on history is “make it up as you go” sadly you are not alone in your methods. Regarding the 1st. amendment you should take a little time to understand that congress has absolutely no conception of the meaning of the words “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”…They proved this a mere seven years after the constitution was ratified when they passed a law violating the 1st amendment regarding sedition. Perhaps you too could take up residence on the genius al gore’s estate..

    Water, air and land will be polluted if we let Mr. Pruitt continue. If American society puts business profit above all else, our environment will be unlivable. Scot Pruitt is a fool and those who follow him are fools also. The EPA was brought into being because the environment had become so polluted that Americans could no longer breath. Remember “Love canal?” How many of these environmental disasters do you want for the love of business profit. The destruction of the EPA which Pruitt is causing is irresponsible.

      Yeah I remember Love Canal as I grew up there you know it’s funny you complain about all the chemicals but I bet you use stuff made of chemicals everyday us a cell phone and drive a car every day so when you use a horse and buggy and throw out your modern belongings I think your just a typical Crying Liberal

        the horse and buggy was probably fun but not so great. imagine bigger cities with horses and buggies and then horse cocky droppings everywhere. In the summer flies and maggots in droves in the stuffl No I will stick with a car. The amish use buggies and it is not uncommon I hear for them to have buggy accidents. We also have groups like peta and HSUS that would not approve of this abuse of horses. they would probably state that we are making them our slaves.

    • Gregg Parker

      you are equating an ever increasing pile of over reaching regulations stopping coal production and forcing massive increases in the cost of electricity. Not that anything is there to replace the shutting of power plants down.. Years and years of massive regulatory hurdles to construct anything is a drag on our economy and our power industries. Make no mistake water air and land will be as protected as they have been for years before the Obama shut down and dismantling of America began. I have no love of “business profit” but I do have a love for paying my bills and balancing my household bills. We are expected to suffer outrageous expense and regulatory burdens to perhaps lower an imaged global warming in fifty years? The Paris Accord was another money laundering scam just like carbon credits. You call out the “business profit” love but you left out this elephant in the room. I support the EPA getting the heck out of the business of states deciding how to manage their land water and resources. Every state has an EPA equivalent. Let them do their jobs without the Feds calling the game.

    • mioahu

      Bunch of leftist BS. And you as a christian are their useful idiot. It is unbelievable how Christians can vote for the leftists, when the main goal of the leftists is to get rid of Christians. Talk about stupidity. You deserve a Darwin award !
      The air is cleaner than ever, the waters are cleaner than ever, and that’s not thanks to the EPA.
      The EPA had a role at some point, and now it is an out of control state agency which makes thousands of new laws, unsupervised by congress. Only congress shall make laws. All these regulatory agencies are a way to get around the constitution and the legislative process. get congress back to regular order where it makes laws, and take back the power from these feckless agencies like the EPA and the IRS

          Bob, climate change was first espoused by Gorbachev (look him up because they probably don’t mention him anymore in the class room). He was clear the next world war would be against human beings and ecology (an old term) and worked very hard to bring us to where the Soviet vision planned for us to be with the help of progressives and useless eaters singing their virtues. He was clear that the socialists would rise to power through a regulatory take over spawned by the collective fear of the unknown. Guess what’s happening? Al Gore and all the Goreites told us how by now our ice caps would be gone! …not smaller or melting, but gone! Fact check today shows they are actually larger than when Gore and the rest made their case. False science. I realize that is slightly off your personal doom and gloom scenario. So back to coal… the regulations put in place to reduce coal which used to generate up to 310 gigawatts of the electricity in the US, being 20% of the fossil fuels providing 70% of our energy, Obama started and Clinton clearly said she would close them all down. How in heaven’s name were we supposed to replace over 20% of our use in a shrt period of time when the regulations put in place to build any other power plant take over 10 to 20 years of regulatory hoops to even receive the approval to break ground? What do you think that does to the economy and especially the affordability of power? Your oxygen mask fear driven tunnel vision is exactly what Gorbachev envisioned. Well done oh useless eater… perhaps you can stop driving, turn off the breaker to your dwelling and live like an American before the industrial revolution. Lead by example …before it’s TOO LATE. Peter Pan!!!

            You continue to babble on, but say nothing. Typical Republicon response. Its good that there are Ignorant, Low-IQ, Uneducated like you who refuse to accept Climate Change. When your family and friends start to suffer the effects, you’ll be able to look back and reflect on your stupidity – but it will be TOO LATE, skippy!!!

            When history and facts become “babbling” perhaps the liberal is too far gone to bother with… Bob on this… Bob… you get blocked. Sad but necessary… bye bye fool.

            Yadee, Yadee, Yadee! You’re as phony as a $3.00 bill, bunky. Now get your coloring book and go play in the traffic and leave the adults along, skippy!!!

    I say. TURN OFF all the power to everyone of the eviro-MENTAL TERRORIST bullies, give them all bikes to ride, ban them from ever buying gas, give them GMO seeds to grow. That way they have to buy them EVERY YEAR. No SAVING SEED. Let them make candles, their own soap and crap in a lug-able loo bucket and use an old style cotton diaper to clean themselves with. BTW. How many of these loons still use cotton diaper and safety pins on their little eviro-TERRORIST?..

    The eco-terrorists, with the financial support of Soros, are the ones behind this. Which, for me, makes Pruitt’s decisions the right ones.

    Los acostumbrados a ejercitar el poder de una nacion de manera perpetua, no pueden admitir las soberanías de los pueblos y no escatiman medios para conservar sus privilegios, creando anti-leyes que violan el derecho de otros, en la justa competencia y lo peor es que lo hacen en nombre de la democracia.
    Ellos buscan respaldar sus intereses parásitos por todos los caminos y el cambio climático es uno de ellos, por efecto de la actividad humana y quieren adjudicárselo a las empresas independientes y actividades personales que no responden a su orden de mando para el ordeño de los que laboran de manera útil.
    Todo los que hacen a los pueblos mas ricos, más dignos e independientes, son tratados como egoístas y enemigos de la sociedad, basada absurdamente en las normas que asignan privilegios encubiertos a los similares, en funcionesorganicas; Quieren imperar y repudian trabajar: Y desean perpetuarse en los poderes .

    UNFAO/IPCC/DOE/NASA/ CarbonCycleGroup/globalCycleGroup and countless others have all updated their Carbon Cycle Models in the last 16 months…Pre 2015, .they all totally embrassed the belief that there were only 7 to 8 GtC of flow units ( 80% from fossil fuels) that determined atmospheric CO2 levels. Their new models acknowledge/confirm that there are in fact more than 400 GtC units of flow that determine CO2 levels with 6 GtC of those units being fossil fuel units. Go to UCAR website and look up carbon cycle diagrams. You will see the official diagrams of each of the above climate change orgs along with many many more CC org diagrams …all with 400 GtC plus units of flow, all with fossil fuels being responsible for less than 1.5% of the flows. Now folks, these are updates coming from the innermost sanctums of the most prominent of the environmental global climate change groups. Paris Accord/carbon tax/displacement of fossil fuels by solar/wind were all justified/endorsed/promoted based on their belief at the time that fossil fuels were responsible for 80% of global CO2 levels!!!

    Pruitt is only in for a short time. Soon enough, this administration will be gone and normality will return. Most of these “lack of regs” he is instituting will not even be able to be implemented by the time he is gone in 3 years. States are suing the EPA on pruitt getting rid of many of these regulations. They will tie him up in court for years to come.

    Just remember, many of these things that are happening with this administration will be changed with a stroke of a pen, just as soon as they are gone. All of this nonsense will be very temporary.
