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…”

I am only a garden planter, but I will ignore the FEDERAL GANGSTERMENT, UNTIL THEY FIRE THE FIRST SHOT, LITERALLY.  Then, if I am able, I will fire back.  I will live on my knees, to God only.  NOT AN OUTRAGEOUS TYRANNICAL GANGSTERMENT , FEDERAL AGENCY, OR "RESIDENT OF THE WHITE HOUSE."  THE LIE OF GLOBAL WARMING, WILL NOT FLY, NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU DEFEND THAT LIE.

They really do want to experience what King George and Lord Howe's followers felt. Hot searing pain from fast moving metal.Keep it up nazi's. We are not going to take your excrement . We will give it to you if you don't shut yourself down.

Congress is complicit. Their excuse is the people voted for the ones in charge so it is what it is. I said whatabout the rule of law. They replied its how they interpret it. they don't care. Jeb Hensarling doesn't even have a democrat challenging him. So I can't even vote him out as incumbent for 10 F'ing years. That is why he doesn't care. I told them he is collecting a 6 figure welfare check.

The way to solve this is DE-FUND THE EPA what is wrong with congress other than they no longer work for us so Vote them all out.

I have some land and I am planning on putting up some fencing and cross fencing and they want me to get a permit LOL LOL Yea I will get right on that.

They have no power over me.  I am one of the People and they work for me.  How can the servant be superior to the sovereign? Go to nationallibertyalliance.org to find the truth.

Why you are doing that don't forget to visit your local gun store and do some patronizing.

lol just ordered a new CZ 75B Omega to add to my stash LOL . Gun store love me LOL

Nice choice!!! Use it in goooood health!

something familiar about that pic...

  

      YES THERE NUTS !!!!!

SO EXACTLY WHAT IS THE MOST WORTHLESS CONGRESS IN HISTORY DOING TO QUASH, QUELL, REPEAL AND OBALISH "ALL" OF THE NAZI GESTAPO SS ROGUE AGENCIES WHO ARE BLINDLY OBEYING THE RULE OF A GESTAPO MUSLIM/COMMUNIST DICTATOR OBAMA AND HIS COMMUNIST MINIONS?   WHEN ARE "WE THE PEOPLE" OF AMERICA GOING TO STOP BEING ZOMBIE "SHEEPLE", BLINDLY STANDING BY WHILE ALLOWING OBAMA TO CREATE A MUSLIM/COMMUNIST "DICTATORSHIP" WHILE WE DO NOTHING?   WHEN ARE WE GOING TO STOP USELESS TALKING AND START TACKING "ACTION?"

Jonathon-

When we have no town halls offered by our congress and senate, or those that hold miniscule town halls only speak and say worship me or they blame others in congress; "it's not me, it's my colleagues". 

Our redress of grievances are ignored and congress will  not defund or do anything to stop these unlawful agencies. We have taken action through letters, calls,etc. Nothing is being done. 

So what action should we take now? There is truly only one action left. All others have been exhausted.

Example: how many petitions have we all signed to impeach obama or repeal obamacare? I signed at least 20. Yet nothing has come to fruition by all the petitions. They usually ask for money after you sign the damn thing. 

Well, heres two Petitions that have a chance at getting a Response and you don't have to pay anything:  Go to: http://wh.gov/lvpFE and http://wh.gov/lvhuN NOW to read and sign.  We only have until May 9th and May14th, respectively.  Need 150 sigs to get on Open Petition status and 100,000 sigs to get a Review.  These two Petitions concern the Peoples' RIGHTS under CONSTITUTION and CIVIL RIGHTS LAWS, also TO CREATE A HUMAN RIGHTS COURT.

If these two topics don't interest you, then in my opinion YOU ARE DOOMED TO A LIFE UNDER COMMUNISM/DICTATORSHIP GOVERNMENT.  ITS YOUR OWN FAULT IF YOU DON'T ACT.

This is not the time to TALK.  Its a time to Act.  SO, GET INTO THE ACT and SIGN THESE PETITIONS NOW!

Yikes !!! Ocasio-Cortez: We Need A ‘Multigendered, Multigeographic’ United States

The United States of America needs to be “multigendered” and “multigeographic,” according to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who endorsed fellow socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) at the “Bernie’s Back Rally” in New York on Saturday.

The freshman lawmaker and “Squad” member officially endorsed Sanders during a rally in Queensbridge Park in Long Island City, New York, on Saturday and called for more diversity in the U.S., arguing that it should not only be “multiracial” and “multigenerational” but “multigeographic” and “multigendered.”

“We need a United States that really, truly, and authentically is operated, owned, and decided by working – and all – people in the United States of America,” Ocasio-Cortez said to applause.

“That is what it – it is multiracial, multigendered, multigenerational, and multigeographic,” she said, failing to elaborate on what that specifically looks like.

“We have to come together, not ignoring our differences but listening to them, prioritizing them, understanding injustice,” she continued.

The socialist lawmaker also implied that rampant racism is still alive and well in the U.S., telling the crowd that it is essential to understand “that we operate in a context where slavery evolved into Jim Crow, evolved into mass incarceration, [and] evolved into the realities we have today.”
