Trump Orders Media Blackout At EPA

Post by Doka » 01-24-2017 04:24 PM

If True, I am over joyed! The EPA is one of the most corrupt agencies. They hid what was going on in Flint Mich.for ever, put people in jail for saving rain water. The Major Purpose under Obama has been protecting themselves

Don't get me wrong, I'm in agreement we need to protect our environment , but with the same Thought out Rules across the board, not hit and miss for my political buddies.

Now since this more or less came from Huf-Pro I am questioning it. As it has been my understanding that Trump put a freeze on ALL AGENCIES. Huf-Pro, is a great "fire starter" and enjoys the "pick and choose" style reporting. SO Verification would be good.

Trump Orders Media Blackout At EPA: Bans Use Of Social Media, Bars New Contracts

The Trump administration has instituted a media blackout at the Environmental Protection Agency and barred staff from awarding any new contracts or grants according to the AP.

Emails sent to EPA staff since President Donald Trump's inauguration on Friday and reviewed by The Associated Press, detailed the specific prohibitions banning press releases, blog updates or posts to the agency's social media accounts. On Monday, the Huffington Post reported that EPA grants had been frozen, with agency employees barred from speaking of the matter.  The memo ordering the social media blackout is shown below.

Here is our Federal Agency Problem.......




Nobody Knows How Many Federal Agencies Exist?

How Many Federal Agencies Exist?

Unified Agenda: 60

Administrative Conference of the United States: 115

FOIA.gov (at Department of Justice): 252

United States Government Manual: 316

Federal Register Index: 257

Regulations.gov: 89

If nobody knows how many agencies exist whose decrees we must abide, that means we don’t know how many people work for the government (let alone contractors making a living from taxpayers) nor know how many rules there are. But even when we isolate a given, knowable agency, the rise of “regulatory dark matter” may make it hard to tell exactly what is and is not a rule.

The sprawling bureaucracy, plus growing concern that issuing a rule may not even be necessary for agencies like the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to impose their will on the public calls out for congressional response.

Bureaucracy should be a crime in and of itself.

Let me give you an example - currently, where I work, we are expecting two organizations to come-in for surveys. The Joint Commission on Healthcare Organizations which is a quais-governmental agency, is due to come-in anytime, and they will go through the entire hospital. The state DPH will also be in the review our facility's radiation license and this survey is geared towards those ares dealing with radiation, but, as this potentially can occur throughout the facility, they also have broad powers.

Sometimes these organizations rules can conflict - and approval for both are necessary in order to get paid. TJC comes through like clockwork, every three years. The last time DPH came through was about 20 years ago(!!!!!!) and because the agency is so dysfunctional thy are leaving a wake of confusion across the state. They had so many people leave that they weren't issuing credentials until after the originals expired. These range from individual staff (in our case, the techs and physicists who check our equipment for safety) to the actual facility's license itself. Staff and organizations can prove they sent=in their money, but due to the agency's condition, all they see is an expired license hanging on the wall, and the facility gets dinged for their screw-ups.........

No doubt about this, when it comes to the Environment, Pure Emotion, rules the roost. They do not see themselves as "Gardner's of Earths Bounties" but "Saviours' of something that does not need to be saved. It is like buying a TV and told you are never to turn on, you might use all the electricity up. IT is all about power and control over fellow humans. We are not the 1st civilization here nor the last, the Earth and it's bounties will be here forever, but these self proclaimed ,human hating gods will not.

OMGosh you two and it's image once good is now tarnished beyond it's ability to shine again!

The too numerous "three letter" agencies have the US Congress closing their eyes allowing their free reign to make their own laws and levy enormous fines on individual citizens, farmers, ranchers, towns and cities. :roll:

Now the EPA is mandating the separation of rainwater runoff from waste water systems that will cost an average small town $1.2M + and larger cities hundreds of million$ :!:

The environmentalists do include everyone behind climate change and that's millions of detractors of this "change" that George Soros can count on to help him with his weird causes! The big tour buses are being fueled now kbot and Doka!

Nearly all 3 letter agencies once hoarded .22 cal and larger pistol ammunition by the billions of rounds! And not to be left out, we heard on the alternate news that NOAA weather forecasting and the Social Security Administration were hoarding their fair share too! :?
