(AP Photo/Susan Walsh)President Trump is planning to issue executive orders this week to begin rolling back the centerpiece of President Obama's climate change agenda with several other regulations.


Trump is expected to soon issue the orders targeting regulations put into place by the Environmental Protection Agency, including the Clean Power Plan, which directs states to cut greenhouse gas emissions from existing power plants.


The EPA climate plan was halted a year ago by the Supreme Court until the courts can rule on litigation by 28 state attorneys general, the coal industry and hundreds of individual companies and industry groups.


The order is expected to direct the agency to redo the climate change rule, which would be different from asking the agency to rescind the regulation altogether. Ultimately, direction on what to do about the greenhouse gas rule will have to come from the courts.

But Trump isn't planning on stopping there. The president also will issue a separate order targeting the EPA's Waters of the U.S. Rule, which greatly expanded the agency's jurisdiction over waterways to include everything from major waterways to drainage ponds on private lands. Both the Clean Power Plan and the Waters of the U.S. Rule have been long-time targets of the Republican Party.


Reports also say to expect a third Trump action to end the Department of Interior's moratorium on new coal mining leases put in place by the Obama administration.

Actually we should drop that over-sized paper weight on top of the DNC headquarters. After all, who would really miss them?

The Russkys would!!!!  The DNC must be LOADS of fun for their IT geeks.

I would like to see the EPA's Waters of the U.S. Rule go completely away and anything they have done to be reversed. Especially when it came to private property and the use of rain water. That became a complete disaster to people with farms and ranches, like the government owned even the rain that falls. Their land grabs were also illegal and need to be reversed.

Does that include freeing up all the lands in the west that were put on restrictions so that even the wild horses were put on notice.  No use of minerals even if done in an approved/ Environmentally friendly way 

some of that is likely Bureau of Land Management (BLM), which has not only proven itself overly authoritarian and corrupt, but assbackwards at the core of it's 'science' - which ironically causes as much global warming as fossil fuels - per the global environment scientist in the following 22minute video;

...their keeping livestock off those lands is mismanagement in every way

I would rather see the unconstitutional federal EPA done completely away with. Leave state land up to the states and the people of the state.

go get the maggots

Obama tried to cram "clean energy" down our throats. Taxpayers got the shaft and his buddies made out like bandits. Think how much Solyndra wasted taxpayer dollars. California democrats profited while all taxpayers lost. Think about how he vowed to shut down coal. Unemployment in WVA skyrocketed. EPA went on steroids under Obama!

The Bolshevik claim oil and coal are fossil fuels..the term they use as a pejorative to make them less appealing. The fact is the ultimate fossil fuels are wind and solar which were on Earth Billions of years before coal and oil.

Great..the EPA Nazi's are job and business destroyers. They're pushing Agenda 21 & 30 that in the end will give property owners zero rights and force the little people into urban area's under watch...1984 , Animal Farm with a dash of Brave New World.They also approve of Geo-Engineering and HAARP . Both cause extreme weather events and the Chemtrails are poisoning the planet and all living things.  Lets hope Trump puts a stop to it.

Can it get any better?  This is Euphoria!!!    Does anyone realize that all the News on the Web is now "Good News"?    Actions taken by our wonderful President to curtail, un-do, and defund all the Garbage Obama put on us!     It is imperative we stand beside this man, and assure him of our support, he is truly "Changing America and Making It Great Again"!!!

"Pruitt was confirmed by the Senate on Friday and sworn in as the nation's 14th EPA administrator. He addressed EPA employees briefly Tuesday during his first full day as head of the agency."

The Obama EPA was not friendly to American workers or America's business'

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
