EPA head Scott Pruitt accused of carrying out rollback agenda “in secret”

Written by  Leslie Eastman

Given all the Obama-era employee leaks, who could blame him?

After having to retract its “scoop” in the wake of facts about the Trump administration’s handling of climate change reports, The New York Times is trying a different battle tactic.

The Gray Lady is saying that critics are accusing Scott Pruitt, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency, of...carrying out a secret agenda!

When career employees of the Environmental Protection Agency are summoned to a meeting with the agency’s administrator, Scott Pruitt, at agency headquarters, they no longer can count on easy access to the floor where his office is, according to interviews with employees of the federal agency.

Doors to the floor are now frequently locked, and employees have to have an escort to gain entrance.

Some employees say they are also told to leave behind their cellphones when they meet with Mr. Pruitt, and are sometimes told not to take notes.

Mr. Pruitt, according to the employees, who requested anonymity out of fear of losing their jobs, often makes important phone calls from other offices rather than use the phone in his office, and he is accompanied, even at E.P.A. headquarters, by armed guards, the first head of the agency to ever request round-the-clock security.

President Trump picked a real gem with Scott Pruitt. He knows he is not bullet proof nor immuned to nor suicide assistance when shot in rear of head with shotgun boasts.
Now here is more good news.
. DNC computers were not Russian hacked…Search "personal liberty /so-it-was-a-leak/"
. On "July 5, 2016, 1,976 megabytes were transferred in 87 seconds = transfer rate of 22.7 megabytes per second exceeding internet ability" ! Plus "Russian markings were artificially inserted prior to posting.

Sounds like to me this man has a plan. Good going Mr Pruitt, trust no one. The EPA needs to be cut down to size & also the OBAMA SNITCHES NEED TO BE FOUND & escorted out of the building. This is another bloated government agency that has really overstepped its authority. Maybe this fella can reign in this agency & they can get back to the business they should be doing.

Smart commentary Marc. Yes it's all about power, control and extorting Trillions from the little people. I wish people on Fox news like Tucker the other night would not let the 97% of scientists agree line stand without saying the 97% get grant $$$ from our Govt and the U.N. There's also the so called climate expert David Hanson who was caught falsifying his data with the East Anglia e-mail hack.

Hoodwinking Americans is the essential part of the environmentalist agenda. Environmental activist Stephen Schneider told Discover magazine in 1989: “We have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements, and make little mention of any doubts we might have. … Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest”.
In 1988, then-Sen. Timothy Wirth, D-Colo., said: “We’ve got to … try to ride the global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong … we will be doing the right thing anyway in terms of economic policy and environmental policy.”
To resume this-comedy in 3 acts performed by the US-taxpayer-paid ($25 billion per year) drones supervised by the UN socialist panel:
1) New Ice Age panic in the 1970’s; remedy = our unilateral disarmament plus nationalize everything and establish a United Nations-supervised world socialist government “to spread the wealth around”, as proclaimed in 2009 by our Marxist Muslim ex-President from Kenya B. Hussein Obama; when that ice failed to show up the same criminals invented
2) Global Warming scam in the 1990’s; remedy still the same. After 21 consecutive years of global COOLING as dictated by the 30-year solar cycle the same bunch of criminals declared
3) Climate Change hoax; remedy – see above.
Our former (thank God!) Marxist Muslim President B. Hussein Obama from Kenya bestowed $50 million of our money to the United Nations Climate Change fund organized by that criminal Paris Conference comedy. Mr. Trump – PLEASE – nullify this waste of our money and stop that socialist conspiracy! Yes – he did it
Note: In frantic preparations for that infamous Paris Conference the “climate scientists” tried to cover up the evidence of GLOBAL COOLING by “refining” their computer models and “recalibrating” their thermometers RETROACTIVELY! Thus committing a scientific crime of the first order.

Cannot blame him given the fevered worship of climate change and hatred of our President. I would be eliminating staff by about 75% for a start. All working on fake man caused climate change should be terminated.

He's smart. The Obama holdovers are ignorant workers with only one agenda...Obama's misguided one. Good for Pruit.

After the Waters of America act fiasco. Everybody in the EPA should be exposed, ridiculed and sent home. If you think his actions are bad then you now know how we felt about your actions. ty Toledo Sgt

Just a couple of points. Referring to the NYT by the "Grey Lady" moniker is being generous, indeed: a lady doesn't prostitute herself, as the Times does for the Left. And, considering that nearly EVERYTHING the Obama Administration did was in secret, the "Lady's" hypocracy is showing.

there aren't doors to the floor that Pruitt's office is on. There are many other offices on that floor. His office suite may be restricted, but not the entire floor.

Another Obummer libtard that deserves firing and replacing. There was no EPA until Nixon signed a executive order - it's time for that blank fake bureaucracy to close it's doors. All it does is cost jobs and cost ever American 25% of their paychecks.
