The Obama EPA’s crooked prosecutors

Former EPA head Lisa Jackson

Suppose a crooked prosecutor framed someone and was determined to get a conviction. So he built an entire case on tainted, circumstantial evidence, and testimony from witnesses who had their reasons for wanting the guy in jail. Suppose the prosecutor ignored or hid exculpatory evidence and colluded with the judge to prevent the defendant from presenting a robust defense or cross-examining adverse witnesses.

You know what would happen – at least in a fair and just society. The victim would be exonerated and compensated. The prosecutor and judge would be disbarred, fined and jailed.

Frozen To Death: Too Much Sea Ice & Temperature Drop Causes Antarctic Penguin Disaster

A colony of more than 36,000 Adelie penguins in Antarctica suffered a catastrophic breeding season with just two chicks surviving, experts have said. Extensive sea ice and a drop in temperature caused chicks to freeze to death. The disaster for the colony in Terre Adelie in East Antarctica was down to unusually extensive sea ice late in the summer – despite low ice early in the season – which meant penguins had to travel further for food and the chicks starved. —The Daily Telegraph, 14 October 2017

Trump needs to take a meat cleaver to Obama’s ‘national monuments’

In office less than nine months, President Trump has gone a long way toward keeping his campaign promise of lifting the shackles the Obama administration used to subjugate the rubes in flyover country and anyone else who stood in the way of the ruling class’s plans to tighten its grip on the levers of power.

From withdrawing the United States from the Paris climate accords to rolling back regulations specifically designed to destroy whole industries, e.g. coal, and the livelihoods that went along with them, Trump has rained on the parade of globalists and the cabal of bureaucrats, NGOs, and crony capitalists who have flourished under the unchecked power of the administrative regulatory state.
