Trump’s Supreme Court Deals a Massive Blow to the EPA & Government Overreach

President Trump’s conservative-majority Supreme Court has dealt yet another massive blow on the side of freedom. In a 6-3 decision handed down on Thursday, the court slapped down a federal agency that has been the bane of the free market for decades: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

This is the fourth major decision in a row that has curbed the power of The Swamp and given power back to the people and the private sector. His appointment of three Supreme Court judges is going to be Donald Trump’s legacy for many years to come if things continue in this direction.

 

The case that the court ruled on Thursday was West Virginia v. Environmental Protection Agency. The case dates back to 2015 when the EPA under Barack Hussein Obama used portions of the Clean Air Act to try to implement portions of the Green New Deal. Only they weren’t calling it the Green New Deal back then. It was still just plain old “battling climate change.”

Unelected bureaucrats at the EPA, acting under Obama’s orders, tried to completely alter the energy sector of the US economy. The EPA kept setting more and more stringent air quality controls that coal-powered plants were forced to comply with – until coal plants were being driven out of business (which was always the point).

The reason why conservatives have hated the EPA for years is because it is the worst of the worst when it comes to the bureaucratic state. Federal agencies do not have authority to create laws, and yet that’s what they are essentially doing when they pass a regulation that the private sector is required to follow. The EPA has been the worst offender causing this problem for years. The EPA tried to force America’s most abundant and cheapest energy generating companies to meet requirements that would put them out of business.

Thankfully, the EPA has just been smacked down. Here’s what Chief Justice John Roberts said in the majority decision:

“It is not plausible that Congress gave EPA the authority to adopt on its own such a regulatory scheme in Section 111(d). A decision of such magnitude and consequence rests with Congress itself, or an agency acting pursuant to a clear delegation from that representative body.”

In other words, the unelected bureaucrats at the EPA don’t have the authority to issue regulations that completely rewrite our nation’s energy policies, or force companies to meet standards that were never set by Congress. If liberals want to completely overturn our energy-based economy by imposing “green” standards on the rest of us, they’re going to have to do it through an Act of Congress.

The Democrats might try to do that while they still have control of the House, the Senate and the White House. But remember, the court case in question here was West Virginia versus the EPA. And what was the name of that one Democrat Senator from West Virginia who still understands that we need coal plants to power our economy? Oh, right! That was Joe Manchin! So, any congressional attempts to kill coal are unlikely to succeed before the Red Wave this fall.

It’s really amazing to see what Donald Trump’s Supreme Court majority has done in these past few decisions. They affirmed your right to carry a concealed weapon without having to prove to the government that have a special need for it. You’re an American, so you can get a concealed carry license – period.

The court ruled that Roe v. Wade was a legal abomination and turned power over abortion back to the states. The court ruled that a football coach can walk out into the middle of an empty field all by himself and get down on one knee to say a prayer – even if (*gasp!*) a liberal sees him do it. And the court has now ruled that Executive branch agencies like the EPA do not have authority to craft laws.

In every single one of these cases, the court has taken power away from government. In the Roe v. Wade decision, the court even ruled that the Supreme Court itself is not powerful enough to create laws. They took power away from themselves! And in every single one of those cases, the court has given power back to the people.

We still have a long way to go to drain the swamp. But reining in the EPA’s monolithic power over the economy is a major first step.

  1. The EPA is a communist lead, Gestapo think tank when led by Demonrats. They think they can make up rules & regulations as they see fit & ram them down the PEOPLES throats. This has come to an END with this Constitutionally correct decision. Laws are to be voted & enacted by the PEOPLES representatives in Congress.
    Congress alone must enact the laws not the unelected SCUMBAGS who hallucinate that they have some authority.
    Government FOR the PEOPLE by the PEOPLE.

    1. This decision must now allow all states to reopen their superior very clean coal burning plants and create the energy to power the economy

  2. Thank god YOU LADIES AND GENTLEMAN FOR MAKING THE EPA FOLLOW THE RULES NOT MAKE THEM UP AS THEY GO AND HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE. FOR THEIR OVERREACH POLICIES. AGAIN THANK GOD AND OUR SUPREME COURT

  3. Hopefully there will be a red wave in november and wipe out a lot of the communist that are in our congress and senate. Hopefully 2024 will see the removal of the communist Biden from the white house.

  4. Sick and tired of the hearings? Rino brands a Secret Service agent a liar over the BS Cassidy Hutchinson’s .Kinzinger hand picked for hearings set up to save Pelosi ass. Adam is a very little Rino man, with no balls that hides behind his public mike and everybody knows it.

  5. Now the scotus should stop biden’s Shutting down our oil production. His executive orders are unconstitutional and not laws! They should keep rolling back all the crap the demonrats have done. How about going after the cdc for making their own laws?

  6. To preface my comments, I am not a conservative; I shed the mantel of “conservatism” years ago. And, no, I am not a radical, leftist, progressive, Marxist–not by any stretch. I am one of a growing number of Americans who refuse to be categorized, simply because I have no faith in, nor do I trust, the government–any branch of government.
    Sure, the Supreme Court handed down a few decisions that will make “kosher konservatives” howl with glee, as though freedom somehow now reigns supreme all across the land. And while the “kosher konservatives” are celebrating these “incredible victories,” all three branches of government–legislative, executive, and judicial–are feverishly working to destroy what little remaining freedoms Americans possess. Day and night, night and day, the despotic, totalitarian federal leviathan is shredding what remains of the Constitution of the United States of America, and “kosher konservatives” are too cowardly, too timid, and too gutless to stand up to their very own government.

    These three or four “monumental victories” through the graces of the Supreme Court cannot, and do not, make up for 157 years of your loss of freedoms. On the day that “Dishonest Abe” Lincoln unleashed the terrible might of the hate-filled Union army to effect an unconstitutional invasion of a free, independent, sovereign, self-governing nation-state–the Confederacy–was the day on which a full-scale assault on Americans’ freedoms and liberties began. This full-scale assault has never subsided, increasing exponentially, like an out-of-control seismic force that cannot be sated.

    So, rest easy, “kosher konservatives,” but not for long because why you are celebrating the much ballyhooed “Independence Day,” the dementia patient, Biden, and his jew globalist handlers are feverishly working behind the scenes to finish the job they started–the complete destruction and genocide of the one-time-great White race. On this “most American of holiday weekends,” while indoctrinated and brainwashed Americans are finding another reason to shun their responsibilities for saving the White race, your enemies are devouring what little remains of you. Ignore this warning at your peril.
