Hundreds of EPA Employees
Have Quit Under Trump

Washington Free Beacon, by Elizabeth Harrington

Original Article

Posted By:Tishimself, 12/17/2017 9:05:47 AM

Over 700 employees at the Environmental Protection Agency have quit or taken early retirement during the Trump administration so far, bringing the agency close to employment levels not seen since Reagan. ThinkProgress, whose senior editor is scared of his plumber who he fears may have voted for Trump, is warning that the exodus will lead to "dirtier air" and "dirtier water." "Since Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt took over the top job at the agency in March, more than 700 employees have either retired, taken voluntary buyouts, or quit, signaling the second-highest exodus of employees from the agency in nearly a

Excellent News. Now move the EPA out West and so many more of the Obie Era Greenies will depart. Great News for America, and a wonderful continuation of MAGA.

Sell the building the Feds own but never use in order to finance the move.

This story is absolutely true.

Ever since the Assistant Associate Deputy Commissioner of the EPA left - - the water coming out of my tap has been filthy.

Bring back the Assistant Associate Deputy Commissioner!

Unfund and close the EPA. Bring it back with subject matter experts who advise the President on provable issues which could affect the Country. Oh, and they serve at the pleasure of the President and only receive travel pay and per-diem while in session.

FTA: ""According to the EPA´s contingency shutdown plan for December, the agency currently has 14,449 employees on board—a marked change from the April contingency plan, which showed a staff of 15,219."

After months of crying at their desks over Trump´s election victory, bureaucrats are now "quitting in disgust."

14,000 federal employees is still +/- $120,0000,000 just in annual salaries and still too many regulators messing with peoples lives.

Getting rid of the agency entirely would be a significant step in reducing the 2018 federal budget by the time you count salaries, FF&E, parties, seminars, trips abroad, payoffs, etc.

Yay. Not enough, but at least we are going in the correct direction, and the opposite direction of the enormous increase in government employees and federal reach during the (imo, nearly lawless) Obama years. Meanwhile, as the mighty Ms. Feldman said in her column this week, "the “green” operations [mostly bogus non-profits which often managed to pay their administrators fat salaries] who were cut off from the old EPA sue-and-settle scam" will also feel the heat. No more massive amounts of taxpayers´ dollars funneled into their coffers. And no more new regulations being agreed to by bureaucrats, regulations which were never enacted by Congress or subjected to public comment.

Trump said early on that he was going to cut EPA way back. I think the number was about 5,000 employees. States now do the majority of work. The time for the EPA has come and gone. I´m sick of these morons trying to justify bloated, politically oriented, ineffective bureaucracies with scare tactics.

Here´s how I envision these useless Federal agencies like the EPA, IRS, Dept. of Education, the ATF&E all each a tiny little closet size office with a department head and one employee. They are given a copy machine and one government issued i-Phone to share with a huge (yuge) picture of President Donald Trump hanging on the office wall to remind them how humble they should be to the public they serve. That´s my dream. I love the sound of this article.

Fantastic news. More reductions would be good. Push all EPA enforcement back to the state levels, with Feds only in charge of assisting in the negotiations of state regulation conflicts.
The existing regulations need to be reviewed and made more sensible and cost effective, and then frozen permanently, no longer the continuously tightening regulations of all "pollutants" which we have been seeing since the EPA was created.

Good enough is good enough. Once the air and water are clean, as they are now, the EPA needs no significant staff to be creating any new restrictions, just a few dozen in the enforcement arm and some to coordinate between states. Let states be primary enforcement.

dislike of Trump.
Either they´ve been given a good reason $$$)or they´re insane.

In either case, they shouldn´t let their regulations hit them on the way out.

If you must have a swamp, the self-draining kind is best.

I think people can be trusted to manage the little streams and puddles that adorn their property. The EPA has been illegally tresspassing on small farms for years to make sure we didn´t mess with our own land or accidentally kill a frog.

Many states have their own EPA´s. The Federal EPA is a duplication of effort and should be closed like Energy, Education, EPA and any other unconstitutional agencies. I assure you these functions are unnecessary and you wouldn´t notice any change in your life without them other than less Federal tax money needed to support them.

Don´t get too happy. Perhaps some here have forgotten, but this vile and UNCONSTITUTIONAL agency was created by a Statist Republicrat, Nixon. Remember our jokes here about "stroke of a pen, law of the land. Cool!" Well, it´s bi-partisan power grabs. Fully. Doubt it?
Nixon began it.
Ford continued it.
So did Reagan.
So did G.H.W. Bush.
So did George W. Bush.
More than 40 years! of an utterly unconstitutional Feral agency claiming jurisdiction over the puddles in your driveway.
Yes, completely abolish this gang of thieves and creeps, and retroactively abolish EVERY reg issued by them.
But public floggings should at least be on the table for ALL elected officials who swore an oath to -- and were paid to -- uphold and defend the Constitution. And are revealed as being foresworn in those oaths. A useful object lesson pour encourager les autres.

Roughly a 5% reduction, so 95% still there. Need to get about 50% reduction, at least.

No question a 95% reduction would be very good, but very difficult to get ANY reduction in the permanent bureaucracies, so we need to alway do what we can to drive them away.

Children throwing a tantrum.

That´s OK, gone is gone, no matter the reason.

former Obama EPA official: "people are going to breathe dirtier air and drink dirtier water."

Oooooo. An boogieman from BO´s abysmally inept and corrupt administration creeps out of her coffin to try to scare us. Sorry dear, Halloween is over.

Once the EPA´s mission is appropriately shrunken back to focus on their original mission of clean air, water, and land those people won´t be needed or missed. In fact there could be a ton more gone with no appreciable impact on actually valuable operations.

Now let´s get that done for the IRS, DOE, State, and many more (most?) agencies. A nice 20% decrease in federal staff would probably work out nicely.

For eight years, the Barack Obama administration’s Health and Human Services (HHS) tried to force nuns and others of faith to act against their moral convictions by complying with mandates put forth in the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, including contraceptives, abortion, and assisted suicide.

Mitt Romney took a swipe at Donald Trump on Monday, condemning the crude comments the president was said to have made about Haiti and African countries -- calling them “inconsistent (with) America’s history and antithetical to American values” with a reference to Martin Luther King, Jr. The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race,” Romney tweeted. “The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/America’s history and antithetical to American values. May our memory of Dr. King buoy our hope for unity, greatness, & ‘charity for all.’”

The Arizona Senate primary officially kicked off Friday, and it’s going to be a battle — with war planes and all. Republican Rep. Martha McSally launched her Senate run at the Tucson Jet Center on Friday morning and will travel to other areas of the state later in the day. She donned a blue flight suit to fly in a World War II-era AT-6 trainer to Phoenix, and then to Prescott. McSally, of course, is piloting the plane herself. “Fly, fight and win. That’s our plan,” said McSally, a second-term congresswoman and the first female pilot to fly in combat.

Republicans hoping to hold on to the Arizona Senate seat currently held by Sen. Jeff Flake (R) face an increasingly tumultuous primary environment, with firebrand former sheriff Joe Arpaio entering the race from the right and Rep. Martha McSally trying to win over President Trump’s supporters without alienating more moderate general election voters. The Tuesday announcement from Arpaio, whose criminal contempt conviction Trump pardoned last year, came just days before McSally joined the primary. While Arpaio made his name as an immigration hard-liner and promoter of the discredited conspiracy theory that former President Obama wasn’t born in the United States, McSally

Federal prosecutors have long insisted the goal of a fraud scheme at Pilot Flying J was to boost the truck stop giant’s profit and market share, and this week they served up numbers to try to prove it. Jurors in U.S. District Court in Chattanooga this week heard testimony and saw financial records showing that Pilot Flying J’s margin on diesel fuel sales, the number of truck stops it controlled and the amount of diesel fuel it sold all grew substantially during the time of the fraud at issue in the ongoing trial of the firm’s former president and three subordinates.

It would rank as one of the greatest political upsets of 2018 and a stunning rebuke to Trumpism: a gay Latina Democrat grabbing hold of the country’s biggest red state. But is Texas ready for Lupe Valdez? The question was first posed in Dallas in 2004, when Valdez scored a surprise victory to become the nation’s first openly gay female Hispanic sheriff on the same night that George W Bush secured a second term in the White House. She won re-election three times in Dallas county before announcing last month that she would resign to stand for Texas governor. Born in San Antonio,

Fox News is the last place you’d expect to see evidence of the growing push for antitrust enforcement. And yet Tucker Carlson this week devoted segments on two of his shows to arguing that Google has surpassed the federal government as the biggest threat to American liberty. In a spirited debate with Senator Mike Lee of Utah (who sits on the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Antitrust, Competition Policy and Consumer Rights), Carlson called for a return to trust-busting: “Here’s the bottom line from my perspective: No company has ever been as powerful in the history of the world as Google

Fifty years ago — really, has it been that long? — Cardinals Hall of Fame righthander Bob Gibson sashayed through the National League with a 22-9 record, 13 shutouts, 28 complete games, 268 strikeouts and a mind-numbing 1.12 earned-run average, best in the modern era. But it wasn’t that easy. “There was pressure all year,” said Gibson, who especially will be honored Sunday night among other Cardinals greats of the past 60 years at the annual St. Louis Baseball Writers’ dinner at Union Station Hotel. “I have them right now, but I think I developed ulcers then.

She did not notify her employers before speaking at the left-wing summit, where she briefed attendees on

A review of a classified document outlining what is described as extensive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse was made available to all House members Thursday and the revelations could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, several sources with knowledge of the document stated. These sources say the report is “explosive,” stating they would not be surprised if it leads to the end of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation into President Trump and his associates. The House Intelligence Committee passed the motion along party lines Thursday to make the classified report alleging extensive

WASHINGTON- President Donald Trump relentlessly congratulates himself for the healthy state of the U.S. economy, with its steady growth, low unemployment, busier factories and confident consumers.But in the year since Trump´s inauguration, most analysts tend to agree on this: The economy remains essentially the same sturdy one he inherited from Barack Obama.Growth has picked up, but it´s not yet clear if it can sustain a faster expansion. Hiring and wage growth actually slowed slightly from Obama´s last year in office. Consumers and businesses are much more optimistic, but their spending has yet to move meaningfully higher.

Republicans are slamming Democratic Sen. Cory Booker for “mansplaining” to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in a sharp and one-sided exchange Wednesday before a Senate committee. The New Jersey lawmaker blasted Nielsen´s "silence and amnesia" after failing to get the response he sought on her recollection of statements President Trump made in a meeting last week. Booker´s hostile tone prompted Republican National Committee Rapid Response Director Michael Ahrens to invoke the millennial term for males talking down to women.

After leaving office, President Ronald Reagan created the Ronald Reagan Freedom Award to recognize individuals who have fought to spread liberty worldwide. Nancy Reagan continued the tradition after her husband’s death, and in 2008 she bestowed the honor on human rights icon Natan Sharansky, who credited Reagan’s strong defense of freedom for his own survival in Soviet gulags. Reagan recognized that as leader of the free world, his words carried enormous weight, and he used it to inspire the unprecedented spread of democracy around the world. President Donald Trump does not seem to understand that his rhetoric and actions reverberate in

Men can now look forward to a liberated future of wearing dresses. One such fashion designer, Alejandro Gomez Palomo of Spain, is helping to rush in that new era. According to the 25-year-old Palomo, whose public appearance looks as if Dracula spent a weekend at Liberace´s house, gender fluidity is a way of life he hopes that future men can share. In an interview with AFP, Palomo likened his fashion revolution to the ones ushered by Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent in the 20th century. "Chanel liberated women (after World War I) by dressing them in male fabrics like tweed,"

Pope Francis has conferred the title of “Commander of the Pontifical Equestrian Order of St. Gregory the Great” on Lilianne Ploumen, a Dutch politician and vocal agitator for abortion rights. Last year, Ploumen founded a pro-abortion organization called She Decides, which offers funding and support for international NGOs that provide, facilitate or campaign for abortion. In an email to the Catholic Herald, Ms. Ploumen said that she was “very honoured” by the pontifical medal, which was sent via the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs last month. In an interview with Dutch radio, Ploumen said she views the honor as a

Obama’s current office, which is run by former de facto President Valerie Jarrett, is just a mile or so from the White House. It is at that location one sees a daily procession of donors, political operatives, party affiliates (BOTH Democrat and Republican) media friends (of which there are many) and more shadowy figures representing a myriad of foreign interests. And each day this office and its two primary inhabitants – Obama and Jarrett, are asked the same question: WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT TRUMP? Obama being Obama, with his solar-system-sized ego intact, has been promising to do

California lawmakers are targeting the expected windfall companies in the state would see under the federal tax overhaul with a bill that would require businesses to turn over half to the state. A proposed Assembly Constitutional Amendment by Assemblymen Kevin McCarty, D -Sacramento and Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, would create a tax surcharge on California companies making more than $1 million so that half of their federal tax cut would instead go to programs that benefit low-income and middle class families.

Microwaves are as damaging to the environment as cars and users must be taught how to cook more efficiently, scientists say. The ovens are responsible for 7.7 million tons of the ­carbon dioxide pumped out from the EU each year — the equivalent of 6.8 million cars. Researchers say they are fueling global warming with consumers overcooking food to blame. Microwaves account for the largest percentage of sales of all types of oven in the EU, with numbers set to reach 135 million by 2020. But scientists at the University of Manchester — the first to assess the environmental impact

Far from content living his golden years on the $400,000 speech and lecture circuit of other former presidents, President Obama has been busy with clawing back for his old power. He´s actually covertly plotting to oust his democratically elected successor, President Trump, vowing to his associates to "rip him a new one," in the 2018 midterm elections. Seems he´s not all that interested in watching his youngest daughter grow up. That´s the word from DCWhispers, which reports that Obama´s Kalorama mansion, in the heart of the capital´s most tony district, is the center of significant comings and goings among the Obamatons,
