Senators call proposed EPA rule a ‘terrifying power grab’

The American Farm Bureau Federation is warning farmers and ranchers that a proposed EPA rule could mean that “ordinary fieldwork, fence construction or even planting could require a federal permit.” 

As reported at the Examiner, the proposal, which is still accepting comments, seeks to expand the definition of “waters of the U.S.” 

POLL: Which Department would you eliminate in the Federal Government?

Further, the updated scope of the federal control over waterways could “ultimately could lead to the unlawful expansion of federal regulation to cover routine farming and ranching practices, as well as other common private land uses, such as building homes.”

Senator Pat Toomey and fourteen others, including Senators Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Rand Paul, sent a letter to EPA administrator Gina McCarthy earlier this month referring to the EPA’s “reckless disregard for the science.” Toomey’s website refers to the rule as a “terrifying power grab.” Sen. David Vitter referred to the proposal as potentially “one of the most significant private property grabs in U.S. history…”

OK Margot M ,Thanks Just signed them both

Thanks, John.  I am keeping track in my notebook of all signers and what state they come from.  I just like to know where the folks who care are.  Margot

Meanwhile the EPA claim that a border fence to stop Illegals will harm the environment and they have to deal with different States & landowners???  Any BS to further their Socialism and Control.

Ok, now that the letter is sent, what are they going to do to put a stop to it. Just asking.

I've been reading and reading lots of comments to the issues.  LOTS OF TALK, LITTLE ACTION!  As I see it, you can decide to do:  FILE A LAWSUIT, START A REVOLUTION, OR LEAVE THE COUNTRY but DO NOT EXPATRIATE UNLESS YOU MUST.  I do not believe VOTING for either of the two major parties will change a thing.

Dan, I got it, but you need to email me first at  My server won't let me email unless its a www.    Margot

Why don't the people organize a swat team of their own? Just sayin'.

Now that's a good idea !!!

This is right out of Agenda 21. Eliminate private ownership of all farmland, establish gov't control of all food production and distribution, and force people off rural land into cities and high density housing. Congress needs to get a backbone and put a halt to Dep'ts under the Executive Branch from enacting law through regulatory action rather than following the Constitution which clearly states that laws are created by Congress i.e., Legislative Branch. This Progressive regime is out of control and becoming increasingly oppressive in their establishment of a regulatory armed police state. Congress is only for bluster and show at this point.

The water is the urine of Michelle and Potus.  Did you see Michelle's photo waving the communist flags during her trip to China?  I have never seen her wave the American flag.

During a memorial service Michelle is seen telling Obama "All this over a dam flag"  That's what we have for a first female. 

Why is our government letting the American citizens suffer so much under this gay fraud in our White House.  Isn't there someone somewhere with the authority to save our country from this radical muslim?  We defeated the English, [American revolution] we defeated England again in 1812, the north and south got together in 1865, and we helped the defeat of Germany in WW1 and we defeated the Japanese and Germans in WW11 and we can't get a radical half breed out of our White House?!!!!!!!!  A charge of perjury should be enough to knock on the door and take him out.  He has provided over 100+ charges in not following our Constitution which he swore before millions he would follow.  God help us rid us of this terrible person.  God bless America.

Pay-Back !!! Pedophile Who Assaulted Nearly 200 Kids Stabbed To Death In Prison

A convicted pedophile who abused almost 200 children was stabbed to death in North Yorkshire, England, on Sunday.

Richard Huckle, 33, from Ashford, Kent, was given 22 life sentences in 2016 after he admitted to sexually abusing 71 kids whose ages ranged from six months to 12 years between 2006 and 2014, according to the BBC.

The report said Huckle was attacked with a makeshift knife while inside his cell at the Full Sutton Prison.

At the pedophile’s trial in 2016, investigators said they found over 20,000 indecent photos and videos of his assaults, which were shared with other pedophiles via a site on the dark web called The Love Zone.

Reports said that prior to his arrest, Huckle posed as an English teacher and Christian volunteer worker in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where he groomed impoverished children.

In one of his online posts, Huckle reportedly wrote “Impoverished kids are definitely much easier to seduce than middle-class Western kids.”

Reports said he attempted to make money from his crimes by crowdfunding the release of the photos.

“Huckle also created a 60-page ‘how-to’ guide for other pedophiles seeking to evade being caught, and kept a scorecard and points system regarding the children who were abused — leading investigators to speculate he may have as many as 200 victims,” a Fox News report stated.

At his sentencing in 2016, Judge Peter Rook condemned Huckle for his heinous crimes he said had become routine for the pedophile.

Rook commented:

Your offending behavior became entrenched in your everyday life. Your life revolved around your sexual activities with young children. Your distorted beliefs in respect of children are deep-seated. Your self-delusion knows no bounds. It is also clear that, had you not been arrested, you planned to continue the same lifestyle using the expertise that you were keen to show off to and share with other abusers so as to continue your sexual exploitation of the children of such communities.

Reports said prior to his death, Huckle refused to cooperate with authorities when they tried to unlock a cache of encrypted files he had access to that may contain the names of victims and other pedophiles, according to Fox News.
