Quoting from a post by Rebekah Rast [his link to it doesn't work and I can't find her post], Jeff Goldstein reports that an environmental group is suing the EPA.
From her post:
Apparently, gas isn’t expensive enough yet-at least for one environmental interest group that is now suing the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to force the creation of Cap-and-Trade. The Institute for Policy Integrity at the New York University School of Law last week told EPA to expect the lawsuit.
If you expect the EPA to fight this, think again: the two sides are in collusion, using a maneuver the Left created.
As Jeff explains:
I believe a year or two back I mentioned the collusion between environmental groups and the EPA, whereby the environmentalist group sues the EPA, and the EPA, rather than go to court (is the ostensible rationale), “settles” with the plaintiff — thereby creating new environmental policy while circumventing Congress and keeping their hands clean from accusation of bureaucratic edict. This is by design, and the suits themselves merely ruses for the settlements that follow.
Could This Be One Explanation?
So the IPI and the EPA [an agency of the Executive Branch] are engaged in a conspiracy against The Constitution. There is no other way to describe this action. They are seeking to undermine and usurp the Legislative Branch’s constitutional powers in such matters. Obviously, there is a third member of this cabal — members of the Judicial Branch — who the other two are counting on to ‘do the right thing’.
This is an insurrectionary action. It is Treason.
And you know the EPA is not the only agency in the Executive Branch that is engaging is this patently seditious behavior.
Is anybody there?
Does anybody care?
