One of Barack Obama’s biggest policy disasters is finally coming to an end with a “yuge” announcement from President Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” team. Get out your rainboots. When this hits the mainstream media, liberal tears will flood the streets.
According to the Daily Caller, the liberal world is getting ready for a major meltdown after word got out that Trump’s main man at the EPA, Scott Pruitt, announced that he will be officially ending one of Obama’s favorite policies. The program about to be axed created obscene amounts of power under Obama for the federal government over American citizens in the name of global warming or climate change prevention.
On Monday, October 9, 2017, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt announced his plan to terminate Obama’s Clean Power Plan (CPP). The EPA has been hard at work on a plan to rid our country of Obama’s socialist power grab scheme since Trump took office. Pruitt knows that environmentalism itself needs to be redefined after years of fake science and political agendas corrupted its purpose.
Pruitt made his announcement to a group of people gathered at a mining event on Monday and received loud continuous applause. Trump promised to help America become energy independent and this announcement from Pruitt is a huge step in the right direction. “Tomorrow, I’ll be a signing a proposed rule to withdraw the so-called Clean Power Plan of the past administration,” said Pruitt.
Obama launched his Clean Power Plan in 2015 and claimed its purpose was to cut carbon dioxide emissions from America’s power plants 32 percent below 2005 levels by 2030. The CPP was part of Obama’s scheme to fulfill idiotic promises to the Paris climate accord. American patriots are cheering as team Trump takes a wrecking ball to this crap policy aimed at crippling our coal industry. Below is the original announcement on CPP from Obama himself on August 5, 2015.
Although the United States Supreme Court did issue a stay against Obama’s CPP in early 2016, many damaging components of it were already being instituted. Now, it’s time for a full repeal, and that is exactly what Pruitt is going to put into writing on Tuesday, October 10, 2017, according to Fox News. “That rule really was about picking winners and losers,” Pruitt said. “The past administration was unapologetic, they were using every bit of power, authority to use the EPA to pick winners and losers on how we pick electricity in this country. That is wrong,” he added.
Of course, some liberal hacks have already gone on the warpath over this epic announcement. Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune channeled his inner thug and threatened not just a court fight but also rioting in the streets.
“Trump can’t reverse our clean energy and climate progress with the stroke of a pen, and we’ll fight him and Scott Pruitt in the courts, in the streets, and at the state and local level across America to protect the health of every community,” he said in a statement, saying the move is “one of the worst attacks ever on public health, our climate, and the safety of every community in the United States.”
The bottom line is that repealing this stupid policy doesn’t put money in Brune’s pockets or his organization’s. Often, those two things are the same thing. Let the liberals cry us a river. It’s time to get America back on track and out of the despair of socialist environmental programs like the CPP.
