EPA Proposes Huge Land Grab



The Environmental Protection Agency has come up with a way to execute one of the biggest land grabs by the federal government ever perpetrated on the American public.  On Tuesday, the EPA proposed a change to the Clean Water Act so that the EPA would have the power to regulate temporary wetlands and waterways.

The land grab engendered tremendous concern from members of the GOP trying to protect private property; they noted that the EPA would gain power over seasonal ponds, streams and ditches.

Louisiana Sen. David Vitter, the top Republican on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, charged, “The … rule may be one of the most significant private property grabs in U.S. history.” He stated that the EPA was “picking and choosing” its science while trying to “take another step toward outright permitting authority over virtually any wet area in the country.” Vitter also noted that if the EPA gets its way, more environmental groups could sue private property owners.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, was also furious, saying that the EPA grab “could result in serious collateral damage to our economy … [I]t appears that the EPA is seeking to dramatically expand its jurisdictional reach under the Clean Water Act.” She added of her home state, “If EPA is not careful, this rule could effectively give the federal government control of nearly all of our state — and prove to be a showstopper for both traditional access and new development.”

The EPA proposal to more widely implement pollution regulations would affect “intermittent and ephemeral streams and wetlands” whose water comes from wet seasons or rains but are temporary.

    Contact your Senators and demand that this bill not be passed…just google Senators phone #s and you can call them and voice your outrage… if everyone would do it and take an interest in what is happening to our country they would have to back down…We have to resist…yes, you too, do it…call and protest… it’s the only way to save our country. Bitching here will no accomplish anything…you have to make your voice heard to the people we pay to serve us.

    I like how she said “If EPA is not careful, this rule could effectively give the federal
    government control of nearly all of our state — and prove to be a
    showstopper for both traditional access and new development.”

    What she seems to not understand that is is all planned, not an accident.

    The EPA had a useful purpose back in the day when pollution was bad. However, one of its first administrators had a dream: to make the EPA more powerful and feared than the IRS. He bent his will to that end as have all in the EPA who followed. Now the EPA is the very model of a rogue agency.

    ALL of the Federal agencies need to be at least halved! And, the departments of energy, education and comerce need to be abolished. The 16th ammendment needs to be repealed and the IRS abolished.

      Start with the last created, eliminate the TSA, then every agency created since LBJ.

      HUD, NEA, NEH, EPA, CPB, TSA, DEA and perhaps the Feds will get the hint.

          Gotta start somewhere, let’s see the GOP cull the “easy” one’s first. Romney was mocked for suggesting welfare millionaire Big Bird get off the dole.

          Why go after Socialist Security first? Ditto MediCare. Kill the truly useless agencies first. Why does TSA exist? HUD?

    These types of people only have this kind of influence because of uninformed voters. Talk to people you know, don’t just post your opinions where ‘like-minded’ people will see them. Word of mouth has always been the best form of advertising.

    Abolish the EPA, they’re just as political as the IRS. Bureaucratic watermelons.

    The EPA represents the 4th branch of government; the Administrative Branch. I know it doesn’t exist ,but if the people in this country allow rules from these entities to become law, then the administrative rule of law will take over. Preventing them from this requires civil disobedience and the willingness of elected officials to grow a pair and refuse to comply.

    Hate to say this but the only way to stop this govern”mental” disaster that is destroying our country is going to be by bloodshed. The federal government is a disease running out of control. A rabid animal cannot be reasoned with. Elected representatives are bought and paid for, elections are rigged and the Constitution is being shredded.

    Ephemeral..So if you have a puddle in your yard, they have jurisdiction. Better get rid of your pets. Livestock grazing is now illegal. Roadside gutters; Hmm.. driving, jogging/walking, if it is in front of your house you must be responsible, that one can get ugly. What about the gutters on your house, do those classify as an ‘ephemeral stream’? Downspout run offs? Are municipal drainage pipes also ephemeral streams? And the detention boxes, are those ephemeral ponds? What about decorative ponds and streams? Those sometimes overflow in the rains. If ANY of you condone this utter nonsense, put your keyboards aside, and lay down, you are already dead.
