EPA’s Totalitarian Assault on America

AFTER USING PHONY TRANSPARENCY AND DIALOGUE TO TARGET AUTO RACING, THEN ALL FOSSIL FUEL USE

Biden-Harris Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Michael Regan is clearly on a mission. He has “bold aspirations, and a long to-do list,” says The Washington Post. But to succeed, the Post acknowledges, he must “help the EPA get its groove back.” As Regan put it, “We’ve got a lot of work to do, starting with rebuilding staff morale and getting all our staff back to feeling as if they matter, their voices matter.”

Regan says his job is “to restore the scientific integrity and the utilization of data, of facts, as we move forward, and make some very important decisions.” His second goal is to increase “cooperation” between the EPA and its “subordinate” state environmental agencies. EPA will dictate; states will fall in line.

A big step toward that goal was extending a Memorandum of Agreement between the EPA, the Environmental Council of the States, and the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials. According to Regan, “EPA is committed to building on the values of transparency, respect, and an open dialogue that are the cornerstone of a successful partnership with the states.” As EPA defines the terms.

An Obama-appointed federal judge just restored the EPA’s use of “secret science” in formulating regulations that businesses and industries must follow just because the EPA says so – with “scientific evidence” that cannot be cross-examined. U.S. District Judge Brian Morris (in Great Falls, Montana) took just hours before vacating the Trump EPA rule that would have ended this Star Chamber style rule.

Now the Biden-Harris EPA has revived its old policy based on a failed 2015 (Obama-Biden) rulemaking that twists the Clean Air Act language in an effort to destroy auto racing as a sport in the USA.

The EPA claims modifying a vehicle previously certified for street driving for use as a competition-only racecar is unlawful even for vehicles that are trailered and never driven on public roads again. This policy seeks to end a 50-year-old American tradition. It has no precedent; even California exempts racing vehicles from regulation.

Not only does the EPA claim it is illegal to convert a vehicle for racing by modifying its emission system; it claims manufacturing, selling or installing race parts for such vehicles is likewise unlawful. It’s even said enforcement actions against high performance parts – including superchargers, tuners and exhaust systems – will now be a top priority.

I don't think so, Scooter.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

EPA’s totalitarian assault on America
April 3, 2021 by Robert

Using ‘transparency’ and ‘dialogue’ to target auto racing, then all fossil fuel use, all controlled by a dictatorship of faceless and nameless totalitarians
– Duncan Flanakin

______________

“One of the Trump EPA’s final actions revised and overturned “secret science” rules that let the agency hide or modify questionable data and still claim it was being “transparent,” writes Paul Driessen. “One of the Biden EPA’s first actions restored this secretive, manipulative science. One of its next actions aims to use ozone regulations and secret science to eliminate racecar driving in America – and then eradicate fossil fuel use, and control the entire US economy.”

“Biden-Harris EPA Administrator Michael Regan clearly has “bold aspirations and a long to-do list,” says the Washington Post, as he works to increase “cooperation” between the EPA and its “subordinate” state environmental agencies. As Duggan Flanakin explains, this means EPA intends to dictate, and states will be expected to fall into line.”

At some point, states are simply going to have to say "no" to the feds.
And let the chips (and bricks) fall as they may from that point onward.

Otherwise, they might as well prepare to be rolled over by one of these:

Because Trump's supporters like NASCAR? Or NHRA?
