The Unscrupulous Critics of Scott Pruitt

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

For simply trying to restore basic fairness and sanity to regulation, Pruitt has become the whipping boy of the Sierra Club. Armendariz and company can’t rest until a more skittish Republican replaces him. The anti-business left recognizes the danger that an EPA head who uses his discretionary powers unapologetically poses to its agenda. The Armendariz crowd wants someone new they can push around.

The Scott Pruitt Show Trial

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The point of all of this propaganda is to make the Trump administration go wobbly on deregulation. The Democrats know they must turn Trump’s strengths into weaknesses, and scalping Pruitt is essential to that task. The more that the economy grows, the harder it is for them to reclaim power.

After eight years of nonstop land use crackdowns, the change is welcome. But radical environmentalists aren’t happy with the shift. So they’re taking a page book from the antifa-type thugs and going right after Pruitt himself with the physical threats.

Steve Bannon and Scott Pruitt beat Kushner, Tillerson and Ivanka on Paris Agreement

Sarah Westwood and W. James Antle III, Washington Examiner

Trump aligned himself with the conservative critics of the Paris Agreement in the end, consistent with his campaign promises last year. This group includes free-market activists who disapprove of resolving environmental problems through heavy-handed government regulations, Republicans from energy-producing states and climate change skeptics. But in his remarks explaining his decision, the president said it all came down to "America first."

The President’s Gary Cohn Problem: The First Article In An Ongoing Series

When one sifts through all of the evidence and clues as to why the President’s economic and domestic policy agenda remain not only unfulfilled, but unarticulated, one problem keeps coming to the fore: The appointment of former Goldman Sachs President and Chief Operating Officer Gary Cohn to head the President’s National Economic Council.
