Trump Orders EPA Review of “Horrible” Obama Water Decree

Written by  Alex Newman

President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Tuesday ordering the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to review and reconsider the “Waters of the United States” (WOTUS) regulation, a radical decree issued by the Obama administration purporting to regulate virtually all water and much of the land across America.

While stopping short of quashing the controversial rule altogether, analysts described Trump's executive order as a first step in that process. One prominent activist, Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch, called the decision “the most pro-property rights move out of D.C. in two decades.” But there may be more to come; the latest order came amid reports that Trump is readying another executive order to dismantle Obama's “climate” regulations purporting to limit emissions of the “gas of life” carbon dioxide.

Speaking at a signing ceremony flanked by other top executive and legislative branch officials, Trump used strong language to describe the previous administration's lawless power grab. “It's a horrible, horrible rule,” Trump said at a White House signing ceremony surrounded by farmers, ranchers, lawmakers, and officials at all levels of government. “Has sort of a nice name, but everything else is bad.” The EPA's “so-called Waters of the United States rule,” Trump continued, “is one of the worst examples of federal regulation, and it has truly run amok, and is one of the rules most strongly opposed by farmers, ranchers and agricultural workers all across our land.

I hope Trump goes in to Flint, MI and fixes the lead in their water. And, fix the bad water supply in other communities that need it. Show the Dems how the real world works.

Great decision..The Bolsheviks hate private property rights and you have none if these eco-Nazi's have their way...Agenda 21 &30 is all about power and control...No personal rights allowed.

With the rabid nut job Dems screaming for investigations on everything including the Repubics bathroom habits, let's fight fire with brimstone & re-open Fast & Furious, Benghazi, IRS, & all other investigations that the Dems were able to fend off while they were still in power. Let's look into Obama & the Mooch's travel & vacation expenditures. Let's look into all of Hillary's BS also.

Superb! Thank you, Mr. Trump, for getting rid of another Banana Republic order put forth by your incompetent predecessor. Next up: kill the climate warming hoax and, along with it, the hysteria put forth by the environmental wack jobs and anti-capitalists.

Trump doesn't know what he is doing! He's creating environmental chaos. Hopefully he'll be IMPEACHED soon before he destroys the entire country.

Ron Seller no bureaucrat needs to be going around trampling the rights of the individual using the weight of the Federal Government to work outside the limitations provided for within it's qualifying document. The United Staes Constitution.

Good for president Trump....Mr Obama was certainly trying to ruin and kill America.....He was the worst president this country has ever had. He tried to destroy AMERICA in so many ways. How anybody could approve of him or like him is way beyond my mind...... He is the most UN-AMERICAN I have ever known.......

Obama's executive orders, particularly re environmental and climate issues were far from "useless".
They went quite far in abrogating property rights to serve the socialist super-state in which owners have mere custody of state regulated and owned means of production.
Obama succeeded in roasting and serving the goose that represents the capital that made this country the most productive nation in history. He consumed trillions of the nations-wealth in his goal to redistribe the nation's wealth over the globe.
