Cut EPA, completely. EPA has no Constitutional reason to exist.

How, exactly, are the environment or natural resources the Constitutional business of the Federal Government?

Why does the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) exist at all?  It was born of a combination of a Marxist-Progressive strategy to get us to fritter away our attention and our treasure on trivial matters, and a collectivization of multiple scientific hoaxes, as described in the Eco-Nazi Movement page.  The Progressive branch (or strategy) of the program to achieve Marxist goals involves the systematic, piece-by-piece dismantling of private enterprise, coupled with a systematic indoctrination program aimed at convincing the population of the necessity of government to solve all problems. 

EPA is a purposeful distraction from what is most important.  It is, in other words, a hoax.  An analogy might involve the pretty, scantily-clad girl on stage whose true purpose is to distract our attention from whatever the magician is doing.  It is the crafty talent of getting us to watch the left hand, while the right hand is doing something else. 

EPA has proved to be a master stroke in the Marxist effort to grow the government, increase governmental power, centralize and concentrate governmental power so that it may one day be seized, while at the same time mesmerizing the voting public into believing all the false propaganda supporting EPA. 

EPA began life as the result of a 1970 Executive Order of President Nixon and was born December 2, 1970.  While it is not a Cabinet-Level bureaucracy, it it normally given Cabinet-Level authority and respect.  It has divided the nation into ten regulatory regions, and now operates some 27 "laboratories" that produce unquestioned scientistic evidences recommending more and more restrictive regulation on both business and private citizen behavior in virtually all areas of life. 

Is there a Constitutional mandate for EPA?  No.  Absolutely not.  "Environment" is nowhere to be found in the Constitution, nor is any right to an environment to be found among the Amendments.  Environmental protection or modification are not listed among the limited and enumerated powers of the Federal Government in Article 1 Section 8.  Nor is there any mention of any need to control weather, climate, sea levels, natural resources, air, water or various species of living organisms.  All of these things are beyond the Constitutional scope of the federal government. They are not "Federal issues."  

Besides being out of Constitutional scope, EPA is un-Constitutional as a regulating authority, because the Constitution nowhere grants Congress the ability or authority to "delegate" any of its Constitutionally exclusive authority to originate and legislate law.  But we see that they have delegated it, to unelected and unaccountable appointed bureaucrats and petty bureaucrats, who now produce "regualtions" rather than laws, un-Constitutionally used to direct and control the activities of the American citizenry. 

Pollution issues are local issues, where they need to be addressed in law at all; they are most properly addressed in the private sector. Again, see the Eco-Nazi Movement page. 

EPA is more than a mere distraction tool; with it's 17,000 + full time employees and untold thousands more under contract, and it's own exponential growth rate, it is a major part of the effort to get more people working for the government and less in the private sector.  All of these workers are now dependent upon government for their livelihood, and are thus more prone to vote Marxist.  I mean Democrat.  They join the Union Vote, the Santa Clause Vote, the Moron Vote, the Criminal Alien Vote and the Marxist Useful Idiot Vote to support Big Government, which translates into support for the Democrat Party. 

EPA Responsibility and Scope.  EPA is supposed to alleviate Congressional fears regarding the impact of human activity on the environment.  These fears were, for the most part, ginned-up by really bad science, which was capitalized on by power and authority seekers.  None of this is the proper Constitutional business of the federal government.  It came to be through magnified and propagandized "Scientism", which was further magnified and propagandized by political hustlers. 

EPA Agencies:  The idea of EPA was born of some really bad legislation, possibly beginning with National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) in 1969, followed by other acts establishing "policy" on resources, and monstrosities like the 2011 Clean Air Act regulating bogus Greenhouse Gas emissions.  Which regulates Carbon Dioxide.  (Carbon Dioxide cooperates with Oxygen to provide the possibility of life itself.  To regulate one is to regulate the other.  To limit one is to limit the other.  Forget, for the moment, the utter impossibility of the task: the very idea of limiting or eliminating either Carbon Dioxide or Oxygen is stupid to the point of suicidal dementia.) 

But that is what EPA is mandated to do.  Here are the EPA sub-bureaucracies. 

  • Office of the Administrator (OA)
  • Office of Administration and Resources Management (OARM)
  • Office of Air and Radiation (OAR)
  • Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention (OCSPP)
  • Office of the Chief Financial Officer (OCFO)
  • Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance (OECA)
  • Office of Environmental Information (OEI)
  • Office of General Counsel (OGC)
  • Office of Inspector General (OIG)
  • Office of International and Tribal Affairs (OITA)
  • Office of Research and Development (ORD)
  • Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response (OSWER)
  • Office of Water (OW)

Supporting all this is a mountain of, in my opinion, un-Constitutional environment-related legislation.  All of it should be declared to be out-of-scope, un-Constitutional and therefore no law.  All that would be required for this to happen would be a President or a Congress with the balls to do it. 

EPA Budget should be Cut, completely, and the whole gigantic bureaucracy should be shut down.  All it is really accomplishing is four things:

  1. Hurting private enterprise while promoting hoaxes, and, 
  2. Restricting and directing citizen behavior while fooling them, and, 
  3. Promoting the Democratizing goals of Marxism, and,
  4. Needlessly expending American treasure, leading to eventual economic disaster.   

All of these are anti-American "accomplishments." 

As a legislatively-established regulating authority, all related regulations from any part of EPA should become nul and void the moment the bureaucracy is closed.  (The Constitution nowhere grants Congress the authority to delegate any of its exclusive legislative authority to any nameless, faceless, unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats, who would produce "regulations" with full force of legislated representative law.) 

Besides EPA regulations, any federal-level laws or regulations in existence that seek to somehow legally control weather, climate, sea levels, natural resources, air, water, soil, species of life, etc., should similarly be declared to be un-Constitutional, nul, void and no law

The American or global environment does not need to be "administered" by big brother government.  If you don't like the environment of your planet, go to another planet, or live in a bubble, and leave the rest of us alone.  Or, to make it Constitutional, go the route of passing a Constitutional Amendment, if you think you can get enough of us to go along with it. 

Otherwise, EPA needs to go.

Not constitutional? Do you really think there was environmental issues at the time the constitution was written or that they could have even foreseen these issues that plague our future? Maybe you don’t care that your grandchildren grow up in a waste land, that water is not fit to drink and air not fit to breathe, that landfills seep into our aquifer, that our ozone is disappearing and our weather cycle is horribly off. Personally it worries me a lot and shouldn’t be ignored. I think you would have to be blind not to acknowledge these facts.

StanManley:

Don't look now, but your mal-education and Marxocrat Party indoctrination is showing.  I know that all the issues you raise are hot button issues with the popularatzi, but that doesn't change the fact that they are all falsified theories. 

You will see them all addressed in the Eco-Nazi Movement page, which you will find among The Scientism Pages shown in the Table of Contents linked at the top and bottom of every page on this site. 

As much as I hate to pop your happy environmental balloon, you have been spoon-fed a long line of bull excrement, and you have swallowed the hook.  Obamunism is not going to lower the sea levels, or do anything else other than destroy us as a sovereign nation. 

Regards,

Vic

The Purpose for this grouping of links is to show, first, the unconstitutional bureaucracies that need to be cut, and second, to highlight ideas toward restoring America toward her original Constitutional design.

The Cut The Spending Pages
Most of this site describes what is wrong; this one describes what to do about it.  If we don't get rid of the extra-Constitutional entities we are over-paying for they will eventually economically strangle us to death as a nation. 

Shut down unneeded bureaucracy, for budget’s sake. In the name of fiscal sanity, we need to shut down unneeded bureaucracy.

Cut USDA budget, in whole or in part. Is agriculture the constitutional business of the federal government?

Department of Commerce: Cut DOC budget, with a meat axe. Argument to cut DOC; in times like these, no bureaucracy is sacred.

Dept of Defense: Budget cuts here need to be of the scalpel variety. Defense cuts need to be done very carefully lest we harm national security.

Cut the ED budget, in whole. Is education the constitutional business of the federal government?

Argument against Public Education, which is, in fact, Government Indoctrination. Public Education equals State Indoctrination, pure and simple. Education is beyond the scope of government and not what our government is constituted to do. 

Cut DOE budget, with a meat axe. Other than nuclear, how is any energy source the business of federal government?

Cut HHS budget, completely. How, exactly, is any Health and/or Human Services the Constitutional business of federal government?

Cut Social Security: Elimination of America’s Largest Budget Expenditure. How to Cut Social Security and begin the return to fiscal sanity.

Cut DHS budget, completely. Homeland Security is the proper domain of Defense, CIA and FBI. We should cut DHS completely.

Cut HUD budget, completely. How, exactly, is Housing or Urban Development the Constitutional business of federal government?

At this moment in time, most Constitutionalists would love to kill the IRS. How do you Kill the IRS? Fast-track and pass the Fair Tax. Very simple; nothing to it. 

Cut DOJ budget, with a paring knife, but, radically. We need to cut DOJ unnecessary and unrelated functions to streamline the function of justice.

Cut DOL, completely. The Dept of Labor has no Constitutional reason to exist. We should cut DOL, which, like organized labor itself, was born of Marx's Communist Manifesto.

Cut EPA, completely. EPA has no Constitutional reason to exist. How, exactly, are the environment or natural resources the Constitutional business of the Federal Government?

Cut DOS (State Departement) budget excess fat. Cut DOS unnecessary functions and get back to State business.

Cut DOI (Department Of Interior) with a meat axe. We can eliminate ninety percent of Interior bureaucracy when we cut DOI. 

Restoring our Treasury Department to its original purpose for being. On restoring our Treasury from Fascist Crony Capitalism, i.e., the Fed.

If we really need to cut spending, we should cut DOT with a meat axe. We should cut DOT and all these other bureaucracies that are regulating us to death.

Cut bureaucracy, but leave VA alone. In fact, we should build up the VA. In the aftermath of Marxocrat and Republicrat cuts to defense, both defense and the VA need new attention.

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization  make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII

"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor.  It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
