US Army Corps of Engineers Official Creates Regulation Out of Thin Air with Dakota Access Decision
With yesterday’s decision, President Obama has all but publically confirmed that the rule of law is a circumstantial entity that can be enforced or ignored when it suits his political will.
Assistant Secretary of the Army Jo-Ellen Darcy, essentially admitted in her memorandum that she was writing new regulations:
The “circumstances” the Obama Administration is referring to are the months of illegal and violent protesting his administration emboldened, uninformed celebrity endorsements, and an anti-industry legacy at stake. The administration has failed present any logical, factual, environmental, or scientific reasoning for the easement not to be issued and have resorted to ambiguity to mask a solely political agenda.
