in EPA case

Original Article

Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan warned parts of the East Coast could be "swallowed by the ocean" in a dissenting Supreme Court opinion in an environmental regulation case Thursday. "If the current rate of emissions continues, children born this year could live to see parts of the Eastern seaboard swallowed by the ocean," Kagan wrote in her dissent. Justices Stephen Breyer and Sonia Sotomayor joined Kagan's dissent in the 6-3 case. "Today, the Court strips the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of the power Congress gave it to respond to ‘the most pressing environmental challenge of our time,'" Kagan wrote.

Once again liberals cannot see past their own ideology on a ruling. The question was whether the EPA was ever granted powers to force massive shifts in our energy sources. It was not. If the planet is really drowning then lobby Congress to act. But that's too hard...

Her opinion on the power of the EPA is so stupid it isn't even wrong. The idea that a government agency can create emissions regulations for US industries while ignoring the effects of all other countries not subject to these rules is an example of virtue signaling, not effective regulation of a threat to US citizens. It has no practical possibility of achieving its regulatory purpose to protect American lives. But even if we were stupid enough to buy into this illogical exercise in futility, the SCOTUS ruling just says that such decisions must be made through the consent of the governed via their representatives and can't be made by unelected administrative bureaucrats. If people really want to reduce our carbon emissions, there is nothing stopping us from passing legislation to enforce whatever restrictions we want to impose. Kagen and her elite colleagues simply believe that the sheep must be led by the "really smart people" for their own good and shouldn't really have a say in their fate. Wasn't this why we fought the Revolution?

Congressman Hank Johnson (D-GA) once grilled a military spokesman about his concerns that Guam might "capsize" because too many troops were stationed there on one side of the island. You wanted a stupid bLACK congressman? Well, here he is. Likewise a disgusting lesbian Supreme Court justice; any possibility of intelligent decision making is of no consequence because in our Marxist utopia, we value surface features only.

Aside from her stupidity on the science of the issue, the really gobsmacking aspect of her position is that it is completely irrelevant to her job as a Supreme Court Justice. Her job is to assess the constitutionality of the issue. Period. Instead, she (and her 2 other leftists on the court) constantly see themselves as super-wise Supreme Legislators bravely fixing all the world's ills. Just do your dang job.

I would bet you if someone asked her to define what a "woman" is she would refuse to answer because "she is not a biologist", as her new Supreme Court partner has recently testified under oath, even though they both appear to be what they can't define but she knows as an absolute certainty what the ocean is going to do even though she is not a scientist nor an expert on global climate and what its possible impacts might be in the short, medium or long term. Funny how that works - don't know who or what they are but they "know" for sure what nobody knows for sure. Does this mean her / their legal opinions are / will be based on hearsay that conforms to their preconceived notions and political correctness and not "law", sure seems so!

Such idiots. Arrogant morons. The oceans have been rising roughly an inch a decade for centuries. We are in a interglacial warming period, between Ice Ages, so the seas rise. Not our fault, nothing will stop it or accelerate it. We are passengers on this rock. We are not in charge.

If this was a real problem, then every property being sold on the coast that could be flooded would be required by law to have a disclosure of the hazard made to prospective buyers. Since there is nothing of the sort happening in the real estate market, this rising sea level myth and property being swallowed by the ocean is pure environmental fiction.

Or are you cheerleading attempts to chase "little people" out of the coastal areas so you "Elites" can buy them cheap? Global warming is nothing more than a scheme - a fraud.

And to think that with the installation of Ketanji as the replacement for Breyer, she is going to be the SMARTEST of the three female (I can say that; I'm a biologist) left-wingers on the Court. We can look forward to some real deep thinking opinions out of that bunch. You could add their IQ's together and you would still come up short of Justices Thomas, Alito, Gorsuch and Barrett individually. Imagine the fun the conservative block will have during the deliberative sessions! It will be like Einstein, Hawking, Newton and Heisenberg talking to Snoop Dog, Flava-flav and Cardi B. They should sell tickets and apply the proceeds to the national debt. We'd be solvent within a year.

Kagen never practiced a day of law, never had a legal client, (or a date with a man, I suspect) until she was selected by Barack Obola to serve as Solicitor General - a federal position where she was responsible for arguing appeals to the U.S. Supreme Court, where they teed up a few easy cases for her to argue. She was totally unqualified for the U.S.. Supreme Court, except that she had a vagina, a requirement created by Barack. We now have three really dumb women on the court, and one smart one. the three in question have faces that would stop a clock, and brains to match. God save us from a feminist majority, with the three witches involved. I predict that we will see the worst dissenting opinions in the history of the Court. Each dissent will be worthy of mocking by SNL, but none will be.

Kagan exposes just how far left and ignorant of the law and Constitution with her opinion. Kagan wishes to make law from the bench. This is not what the Supreme Court is for. Maybe she needs to run for Congress. Kagan won't, because she will then be held accountable for her stupid opinions.

The question before the court wasn't about sea level rise. It was did the EPA have the authority to regulate CO2. Her dissent shows she is unqualified to be on the court. Sotomayor and Breyer joined her dissent. They stated, "Section 111 of the Clean Air Act directs EPA to regulate stationary sources of any substance that “causes, or contributes significantly to, air pollution” and that “may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health or welfare.” 42 U. S. C. §7411(b)(1)(A). Carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases fit that description." So they have bought the lie that life giving CO2 is a pollutant.

Kagen is so ignorant and stupid she doesn't even grasp what this ruling is really about. Talk about an activist judge she just showed her activism writing it in a dissent. Some of the leftist idiot judges should rule with the majority sometimes so it's not so obvious they are plants on the bench for the left. This would have been a great time for a unanimous ruling on this obvious case.

The funny part about these conversations is that the rise in ocean levels that will swallow up places is measured in centimeters. Kids, there is 2.5 cms to the inch! How exactly does that inch, lets say two inches, swallow anything? Interestingly, I live in a MA coastal town. All the original old homes are still there on the water. They built their houses near the water but up away from it if possible. They were not college MBA/PhD people but the knew that the ocean was not something that was to be f'd with and kept themselves at safe distance

Well, granted that there are parts of the east coast that would look good under water. At the same time we've heard this before and the truth is that the Chicken Littles of our culture have always been wrong. Regarding the legislation authorizing the EPA we put legal power in the hands of unelected officials and they ran amuck with them. All the SCOTUS did was say that powers that the Legislature did not make laws for cannot be made by agencies of the Govt out of whole cloth. This is like the Federal Dept of Education. Where is the actual constitutional authority for a Dept. of Education and the EPA. There isn't any. These agencies were formed out of an excess of liberal enthusiasm. Near as I can tell, the govt takes a lot of money from us in taxes and doesn't actually educate anybody. Very little is done to stop or clean up messes although the money supposedly to do so is there.

Buffer Insurance condemned "secular" companies' response to the end of Roe v. Wade, vowing instead to support female employees who get pregnant and even cover the costs of giving birth. The Texas-based company vowed to offer maternity and paternity leave to employees who have children, as well as cover the costs of their female employees giving birth. The company also promised to help out employees seeking to adopt children. "Secular companies are paying the travel costs for employees to abort babies out-of state," Buffer wrote in a Facebook post. "Today we are announcing that Buffer will pay the costs for our employees who birth babies."

The January 6 Committee appears to have stepped in another political cow pattie. (snip) Hutchinson may have misidentified a Trump Administration DOJ attorney — whose house was subsequently tossed, and all of whose electronics were confiscated by the Department of Justice. All while he was forced to stand outside in his pajamas. Oopsie! Mike Davis, a D.C. attorney, former Supreme Court clerk, and leader of the Article III Project, says he believes the aide mistook “J Clark” in the White House logs for DOJ Assistant Attorney General Jeff Clark instead of Trump’s former campaign aide and White House public liaison, Justin Clark.

If you look hard enough, you can find white supremacy in anything. This is the lesson of critical race theory, which was developed in order to root out white supremacy from all of American society and culture. It appears to those of us who consider ourselves “ordinary” that sometimes, CRT proponents get a little too enthusiastic and perhaps look a little too hard to find white supremacy. Maybe sometimes, it’s not even there. This might be the case in Oregon, where the Oregon Health Authority’s office for equity and inclusion delayed a meeting with a partner agency on the grounds that “urgency is a white supremacy value.”

The January 6 committee’s key witness, Cassidy Hutchinson, called the committee “bs” in a text message obtained exclusively by the Daily Caller. On Feb 1. Hutchinson sent a text to a conservative activist with connections to the First Amendment Fund, which is a group started by the American Conservative Union that helps Trump officials cover costs for Jan. 6 lawyers. Matt Schlapp said Hutchinson approached CPAC for help through the First Amendment Fund. Schlapp said he is happy they did not end up assisting her because she was relaying White House “hallway gossip as fact.”

A Seattle man was arrested for reading aloud the Gospel of Saint Matthew in a public park as a “Gay Pride*” event was taking place. Matthew Meinecke, often referred to as a “street preacher,” was on public property reading aloud from the Bible without the benefit of amplification when he was rousted and then arrested by Seattle’s finest. (snip) according to reports, the Seattle city prosecutor does not plan on charging Meinecke for anything. This reveals the true purpose of the arrest was to silence Meinecke so the Gay Pride bunch wouldn’t be upset.

The women’s Bible group leader leaned close to me. She lowered her voice. “You know, abortion was intended to be a form of genocide against Black people and Brown people.” The implication was that she, as a Latina woman, and I had a special duty to our races — that fighting abortion was a form of fighting racism. “Did you know that Margaret Sanger wanted to exterminate us?” It was 2010, I was 22 and this was evening ladies’ Bible study at the evangelical church I attended in a Dallas suburb. The women were planning a pilgrimage to an antiabortion march.

Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s fiery rhetoric over the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade has given way to her tendency to make everything about herself and her “personal act of reclamation” to protest the historic ruling was to have her nails done. On Friday, the socialist diva took to Instagram to share a video with her avid fans claiming that even something as mundane as getting a manicure could be an act of resistance, quite possibly her most loopy statement yet but one which will serve to inspire her demoralized followers and satisfy her narcissistic craving for constant attention.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) further strutted her woke posturing at the Reagan Presidential Library, where she said the world “is really not going that well” under male leadership. As part of the “Time for Choosing” speaker series, Liz Cheney briefly honored former President Ronald Reagan before segueing into a diatribe against former Donald Trump, calling him a “dangerous and irrational man.” Cheney also characterized Republican leadership as being loyal to the former president at the expense of the Constitution. Towards the tail-end of her speech, Cheney celebrated that which gives her the most hope for the future: “young women.”

I wasted 20 years of my life chasing utopian energy. Utopian energy is an imagined form of energy that’s abundant, reliable, inexpensive, and also clean, renewable, and life-sustaining. But utopian energy is as much a fantasy as a utopian society. Seeking the fount of perfect energy allows us to pretend there aren’t real-world tradeoffs between, say, banning fossil fuels and helping people in impoverished nations or between using solar and wind power and conserving natural habitats. For years, I chased utopian energy. I promoted solar, wind, and energy efficiency because I felt like I was protecting the environment.

Infectious disease experts and public health advocates are warning that the Biden administration has been too slow to respond to the monkeypox outbreak and that the U.S. is at risk of losing control of the disease. The response to monkeypox is mirroring the worst parts of the early days of the coronavirus pandemic, they say, with severely limited testing and a sluggish rollout of vaccines leading to a virus that’s spreading undetected. “Where we have lagged is streamlining testing, making vaccines available, streamlining access to the best therapeutics.(Snip)Unlike COVID-19, monkeypox is not a novel virus, and the strategies to reduce the spread are well known.

Jump out of a perfectly good airplane, charge a machine gun nest, be stationed at Ft. Irwin – these are just three of the myriad miseries American patriots are willing to endure to defend our country. But today's military is asking too much of our young people, as evidenced by the crashing recruitment rates that threaten to deplete a military already running short of soldiers. Have our young people suddenly turned from heroes to zeros, ne'er-do-well heirs of the brave warriors who confronted the forces of tyrannical gun control at Lexington and Concord?

It was held in the exquisitely picturesque English Cotswold district but the photos are a testament to the death of beauty in the modern era.

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg is under fire from fellow Democrats for flight delays and cancellations that have paralyzed the nation’s airports, wrecked holiday travel plans and caused Americans undue financial stress. Progressive lawmakers, in particular, say Mr. Buttigieg needs to do more to rein in airline companies that have taken billions in public subsidies since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. “It’s time for the Transportation Department to impose massive fines on poor-performing airlines,” said Sen. Bernard Sanders, a self-described socialist from Vermont. In an email to supporters, Mr. Sanders called on the White House and Mr. Buttigieg to require airlines to refund passengers for flights delayed more
