Scott Pruitt Will End EPA’s Use Of
‘Secret Science’ To Justify Regulations

Daily Caller, by Michael Bastasch

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 3/20/2018 4:57:45 AM

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt will soon end his agency’s use of “secret science” to craft regulations. “We need to make sure their data and methodology are published as part of the record,” Pruitt said in an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Otherwise, it’s not transparent. It’s not objectively measured, and that’s important.” Pruitt will reverse long-standing EPA policy allowing regulators to rely on non-public scientific data in crafting rules. Such studies have been used to justify tens of billions of dollars worth of regulations. EPA regulators would only be allowed to consider scientific studies that make their

It was so secret that no one has ever seen it, but they knew it had to be out there somewhere, so they went with it.
What could possibly be wrong with that?

If data and methods aren´t published, it isn´t science, it´s "because I said so".

YES! WINNING!

It´s been a pretty sweet deal for environmentalists. The government pays for some research trying to justify a planned action. An environmentalist gets a sweet paying job, carries out "the study", and surprise, surprise it justifies the actions the government wanted to take to begin with. Meanwhile the information and methodology is hidden (though WE paid for it) so no one knows if it is legitimate. Further, there is no real way to challenge it because the government can simply say a study was done.

The process is insane and is wide open to graft, corruption, manipulation, and poor scientific practice. A study that cannot be peer reviewed and replicated is worthless.

This should apply to EVERY "study" the government pays for. All data and methodology should be public.

The same should be done with funding. Every tax dollar spent should be fully visible for review by the public.

"Secret science" is NOT any kind of science.

Science is a process by which hypotheses are tested against results developed from experiments. New experimental results can easily overturn scientific hypotheses which have been previously thought to be well founded.

"Secret" can never work in real science. "Secret" political, totalitarian.

Ryane Nickens stood in a patch of grass as sleet rained down on one of the most historically troubled neighborhoods of Southeast Washington. It was the first time Nickens had come back to this spot in Washington Highlands since her brother, then 19, had been gunned down in the parking lot 22 years ago. A little boy, on his way to school, had found the body. The buildings are newly painted, bright, crisp colors. Some had been torn down, to create more open space. There’s a playground nearby, though it’s empty on a cold wet day. Around the corner we had just

Kyle Kashuv is going to prom. With a girl he doesn’t know. Who lives in another state. Kashuv is one of the few survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting who publicly supports the Second Amendment. He has gained a substantial Twitter following based largely on his refusal to toe the party line on gun control, or engage in the negative rhetoric of his classmates on the left. But now Twitter has gained him something else: a date. Last week a girl from Nebraska, who goes by Fidan on Twitter, sent Kyle a direct message asking, “How many retweets for prom?!!”

In 2006, as the national chief of the Border Patrol, I welcomed the assignment of roughly 6,000 National Guardsmen to serve as a force multiplier to the then-9,000 Border Patrol agents on duty along the U.S.-Mexico border. It was the right call to make at the time. The influx of drugs, illegal immigration, and criminal organizations was overwhelming the agency, and cartel violence was at its peak on the south side of the border with Mexico. Some have criticized President Trump’s decision to deploy the Guard, but based on my own experience, these troops will be of tremendous benefit along the

the FCC to Revoke Sinclair´s Broadcast Licenses

How stupid is the panic over Sinclair Broadcast Group´s hamfisted, "must-run" promotional video decrying "fake news"? This stupid: Yesterday 12 senators, including reported presidential aspirants Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), and Cory Booker (D-N.J.), officially requested that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) "investigate Sinclair´s news activities to determine if it conforms to the public interest." If such an inquiry were to uncover "distorted news reports," the senators reckoned, that "could disqualify Sinclair from holding its existing licenses" and put the kibosh to its proposed purchase of Tribune Co. television stations.

Assad and ‘First Lady of Hell’ live

Despot Bashar al-Assad and his British-born wife, dubbed “the First Lady of Hell,” enjoy a lavish lifestyle while children are gassed to death on the streets of Syria. The Syrian tyrant and his spouse Asma al-Assad own an opulent palace estimated to be worth $1 billion in Damascus — less than 10 miles from Eastern Ghouta where innocent people are being massacred by pro-government forces. Once known as Syria’s Princess Diana, Asma is now a reviled figure in her own country. In 2012, Wikileaks published private emails from the 42-year-old Brit showing she had splashed out $350,000 on 130 pieces of furniture when

Bashar al-Assad’s gas attack on the anniversary of President Trump’s missile strike against his regime was an invitation to get hit again, and the president is indeed promising another strike. We weren’t enthusiastic over the first one. Assad is, as Trump is now wont to say, an animal. He has destroyed his country in order to rule the rubble. He has brought untold suffering by every means possible and has no compunction about using banned chemical weapons as an instrument of terror. There is obviously utility in maintaining an international norm against the use of these especially cruel weapons. Our worry about

If Comey talks to sell books,

Fired FBI Director James Comey´s bookselling campaign is well under way. ABC is leaking sensational tidbits from a five-hour interview Comey did with George Stephanopoulos, set to air in a prime-time special Sunday. A commercial for the show features Stephanopoulos revealing that Comey compared President Trump to a "mob boss." A "source present at the taping" told Axios that the interview "left people in the room stunned — [Comey] told George things that he´s never said before." Just to make sure everyone is sufficiently teased, Axios reported that, "If anyone wonders if Comey will go there, he goes there." Tune in! Amid

When I downloaded a copy of my Facebook data last week, I didn’t expect to see much. My profile is sparse, I rarely post anything on the site, and I seldom click on ads. (I’m what some call a Facebook “lurker.”) But when I opened my file, it was like opening Pandora’s box. With a few clicks, I learned that about 500 advertisers — many that I had never heard of, like Bad Dad, a motorcycle parts store, and Space Jesus, an electronica band — had my contact information, which could include my email address, phone number and full name.

Judicial Watch Sues For Uranium One Documents
Townhall, by Katie Pavlich    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 4/11/2018 5:13:17     Post Reply
Government watchdog Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the Departments of Justice and State Tuesday for a number of documents related to Uranium One. The filing comes four months after both Departments stonewalled legally requested information and failed to comply with a standard FOIA request. "This lawsuit is part of Judicial Watch’s continuing investigation of the highly controversial 2010 Uranium One deal. At the time, a Russia state-owned nuclear firm, Rosatom, sought to buy Uranium One, a Canadian mining company. Because Uranium One held licenses for 20 percent of America’s uranium production capacity, the sale had to

Mark Zuckerberg’s Dorm-Room Defense in Congress

The Mark Zuckerberg who arrived at the Hart Senate Office Building on Tuesday afternoon very much resembled an adult. His hair was cut short. His dark-blue suit fit well. His presentation was polished, without glibness or arrogance. He said, “Yes, Senator” and “No, Senator,” with the slightly bemused deference of a curator giving a museum tour. The android-smooth forehead, now thirty-three years old, still appeared unmarked by age or adversity, but there were no flip-flops or pajamas this time; a small loosening of Zuckerberg’s Facebook-blue tie knot was his only variation from the Capitol’s accepted forms. Despite this evident preparation, Zuckerberg

The film "Chappaquiddick," which premiered last Friday, concerns the efforts of the late Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., to save his career and reputation after the accident that killed Mary Jo Kopechne, a young, pretty aide to his dead brother Bobby. Kennedy intended to preserve his chances of running for president, like his two older brothers before him. But what if he wanted not to be president, and it was this desire that ruled from then on? Kennedy wished to remain in the Senate, which was the love of his life and for which he was suited. But the presidency at age 36

LOS ANGELES — “Dreamer” Marco Villada Garibay left the country on the U.S. government’s promise of a possible green card. Now he’s trapped in Mexico and might never be allowed to return. Villada, 34, came to the United States — the only country he knows — illegally from Mexico at age 6. This is where he went to school; where he worked and paid taxes; and, most significantly, where he met his husband, Israel Serrato. “From the beginning,” Villada says, “I knew that Israel was my home, that that’s where I belong.” In 2013, Villada received protection from deportation under

Michael Cohen is a fraud of a lawyer who works exclusively for President Trump, federal prosecutors charged Friday. “Cohen has told at least one witness that he has only [one] client — President Trump,” the lawyers wrote in court documents, challenging Cohen’s claims that records seized in raids on his home and office Monday should be protected by attorney-client privilege. And he’s barely doing any “legal work” for Trump, either, they claim. “[Reviews of the records] indicate that Cohen is in fact performing little to no legal work, and that zero ­e-mails were exchanged with President Trump,” according to the brief, filed in

An Indian reservation along one of the most perilous sections of the Mexican border won’t allow National Guard troops to enter its land, which is a notorious smuggling corridor determined by the U.S. government to be a “High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA).” Sources inside the U.S. Border Patrol and other law enforcement agencies working along the Arizona-Mexico border tell Judicial Watch that the tribe, Tohono O’odham Nation, has banned National Guard troops deployed by President Donald Trump to help crack down on a crisis of drug smuggling and illegal crossings along the 2,000-mile southern border. “They told us they

Fired FBI Director James Comey’s new “tell all” book is a dream come true for President Donald Trump’s opponents and a hatchet job on the president. It’s important for every fair-minded person to remember that just because Comey makes a charge, he is not speaking gospel truth – despite his inflated sense of virtue and self-importance. Just about anyone who’s ever been fired fancies “getting even” with the boss. Comey’s new book does that in spades, according to excerpts leaked to the media Thursday. In the process, it lowers the reputation of both the FBI and Comey, undermines the presidency and hurts

Hopefully, this full pardon will help rectify a very sad portion of his life." Libby told Fox News in a brief phone call after Trump´s announcement he is “pleased” his innocence “has been recognized.” Libby, who served as Cheney´s chief of staff, was convicted in 2007 of perjury, obstruction of

President Donald Trump is poised to pardon Scooter J. Libby, the former chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, according to sources familiar with the president’s thinking. The president has already signed off on the pardon, which is something he has been considering for several months, sources told ABC News. The move would mark another controversial pardon for Trump and could raise questions as an increasing number of the president’s political allies have landed themselves in legal jeopardy.

White House officials are concerned that the president´s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, had taped recordings that federal investigators may have gotten their hands on during the raid on his hotel and home. Cohen, who served for a decade at the Trump Organization, was known to tape conversations with associates to use as leverage, and even had Trump hear some of his recordings. It was a practice the president was aware of. ´We heard he had some proclivity to make tapes,´ said one Trump adviser to the Washington Post, who spoke about the ongoing investigation. ´Now we are wondering, who did he tape?

Disruptions of conservative speakers, even at law schools, has become a common tactic. We’ve documented dozens of such incidents. The tactic, even when it doesn’t prevent the speech completely, is not merely the expression of disagreement. It’s an infringement of the speaker’s right to speak, and the audience’s right to hear that speech. But it’s more. It’s meant to create a toxic campus atmosphere in which there is a price tag to expressing non-progressive ideas. It just happened again, to conservative law professor Josh Blackman from Southern Texas College of Law in Houston. Blackman has established himself as a leading

During a recent lunch hour, I was alone on the rooftop of the largest Chick-fil-A in the world. The restaurant, on Fulton Street, is the company’s fourth in Manhattan, and it opened last month to the kind of slick, corporate-friendly fanfare that can only greet a new chain. The first hundred customers had participated in a scavenger hunt around the financial district. At an awards ceremony, the management honored them with a year’s supply of free chicken sandwiches and waffle fries. There were no such prizes on offer when I visited, but from the fifth-floor terrace—on the top floor of
