Obama's WOTUS rule, judged unlawful

2 minute read

The Democrats just can’t get over the 2016 election.  They’ve gone through countless reasons why Trump won (other than that they nominated the worst candidate in history.)  They’ve blamed it on Russians rigging the election, 63 million Americans being “white supremacists,” and Hillary has floated a thousand other excuses, none involving her.  It will probably never penetrate their skulls that the public was sick of stuff like this.

Last week, a federal judge ruled in favor of Georgia and nine other states, finding that Obama’s “Waters of the United States (WOTUS) Rule” is unlawful.  She sent it back to the EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers for reconsideration. 

WOTUS was a typical Obama order, a rule that did an unlawful end-run around Congress and that sounded good (who doesn’t want to protect US waters?) but was actually an unconstitutional overreach of federal power at the expense of the states and individuals.  It expanded the EPA’s jurisdiction over land and waters traditionally under the states’ authority. And I mean just about every drop of water in America.

The “Define WOTUS Act,” a proposed bill by Republican Senators Mike Braun and Joni Ernst, says that the Obama rule “threatened Iowa’s farmers, manufacturers, and small businesses by giving the federal government authority to regulate water on 97 percent of land in our state.”  A typical example of the results was a Wyoming farmer who was being fined $37,500 a day by the EPA for building a water tank for his livestock on his own land.

It’s probably a good thing for Republicans that the Democrats can’t comprehend why Americans wouldn’t want the government seizing control over every aspect of their lives, from their health care to their diet to how much water their toilet uses. That way, they can keep on dreaming up those giant, intrusive government programs and promoting them all over the place, and we’ll be on the alert to show up and vote for Trump again to keep that craziness from ever coming back.

    What Obama...his administrationion, & it's cronies wanted was for as many Americans as possible to count on the government for each and everything in their lives. That way, they figured that it would essentially turn most of this country into a democratic party and so therefore ensuring their Liberal Leftist Progressive Socialist Party to be able to win the office of President, and congressional seats.
    That way, with the EPA working for the president and his cronies in the government and they were to see that "a" person that was...say... on a farm, & happened to be going against them party wise... would find themselves without water, from some kind of an EPA ruling that would "BREAK THEM" or bring them back into line.
    Socialism has not worked in any other country, and socialism will certainly never work in this country.

    MY WISH FOR TODAY ...
    A few Congressmen and Senators who had memorized the CONSTITUTION....
    Then, whenever legislation is offered, they can challenge its constitutionality.
    "SO, Senator Warren, WHERE in the CONSTITUTION, does your legislation FIND its authority?"
    "NOWHERE? Then withdraw your piece of propaganda, NOW."

    This is just one of the ways Obama worked to undermine our freedoms and negate states’ rights. Doesn’t anyone remember how he was the first to state that he wanted “to fundamentally change America” ?
