Reason #48 to get rid of the EPA:

the corruption and secrecy.
Two committees consisting entirely of EPA officials meet behind closed doors twice annually to decide how the agency spends those funds on highly polluted – and often dangerous – Superfund sites. All reports to and from the groups, as well as the minutes of their meetings and all other details, are kept behind closed doors.

“The National Risk-Based Priority Panel and the Superfund Special Accounts Senior Management Committee engage in pre-decisional deliberations which are internal to the agency and not open to the public,” an EPA spokeswoman who requested anonymity told The DCNF.

Damn.  Just the description is painful.

Yes, Gunwalker(and all the OTHER operations that don't get talked about) are still paying dividends.  If you consider piles of bodies a dividend.
The deadly-but-forgotten government gun-running scandal known as “Fast and Furious” has lain dormant for years, thanks to White House stonewalling and media compliance. But newly uncovered e-mails have reopened the case, exposing the anatomy of a coverup by an administration that promised to be the most transparent in history.
“At least 20 other deaths or violent crimes have been linked to Fast and Furious-trafficked guns.”
A federal judge has forced the release of more than 20,000 pages of emails and memos previously locked up under President Obama’s phony executive-privilege claim. A preliminary review shows top Obama officials deliberately obstructing congressional probes into the border gun-running operation.
And nobody is surprised.  And Democrats will still call it a 'fake controversy and scandal.'  And the bodies will continue to pile up.  And AG Lynch(Holder II) won't do a damn thing about it.

Of course, she's busy dealing with her crooked lawyers,
U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen denounced their conduct as "unseemly and unprofessional." Their lies, the judge noted, conned the 26 plaintiff states that were suing to stop the executive action, into "foregoing a request for a temporary restraining order."

Judge Hanen witheringly noted that he did not have the power to disbar the lowlife lawyers, and it is an astounding rebuke that he would mention that possibility. But he did "revoke the pro hac vice status of out-of-state lawyers who act unethically in court," meaning that the attorneys in question will no longer have privileges to practice law before courts in the state of Texas.
Only a month ago, an appellate court judge in the Sixth Circuit similarly excoriated Justice Department attorneys for unethically dragging out the discovery process in another lawsuit, in which they were defending the Internal Revenue Service. In that case, the judge criticized the lawyers' "studied obstruction," and repeated use of transparently bogus arguments to drag their feet in the lower courts.

Judge Raymond Ketheledge wrote pointedly that "lawyers in the Department of Justice have a long and storied tradition of defending the nation's interests and enforcing its laws ... in a manner worthy of the Department's name. The conduct of the IRS's attorneys in the district court falls outside that tradition."
who she inherited from Holder & Obama.  Anybody believe she'll actually try to clean this up?

Which brings me back to two questions that are very damned serious:
Why should we trust any of these people about ANYTHING?
If they don't have to obey the law, why should we?

And if the morons in Sodom on the Potomac, and the 'elites' in major cities don't think this is a real problem, they're in for a very nasty surprise.

One of my brothers keeps telling me to watch Idiocracy, and I keep telling him that the kind of documentaries I like are about the bottom of the sea floor, the edge of the solar system, or from two continents and 100 years removed.

I @#$%@#$ hate reality shows.
