EPA Blows Off Federal Court Injunction, Takes America's Water Anyway

by JASmius

"Judge Erickson has made his ruling; now let him enforce it":

The Environmental Protection Agency says it is going forward with a new federal rule to protect small streams, tributaries and wetlands, despite a court ruling that blocked the measure in thirteen central and Western States.

The EPA says the rule, which took effect Friday in more than three dozen States, will safeguard drinking water for millions of Americans.

Opponents pledged to continue to fight the rule, emboldened by a federal court decision Thursday that blocked it from Alaska to Arkansas.

Oh, trust me, folks, it took effect in all fifty States.  Water is fungible after all.

Once again, for all that we rail against and lament and wail and gnash our teeth about the Imperial Judiciary when it imposes the Left's wish list, whenever a federal judge aberrantly drifts towards constitutionalism in the teeth of any Obama power grab, we are swiftly reminded of just how powerless the federal courts really are.  Just ask Judge Erickson's Brownsville, Texas, counterpart and his Obamnesty humiliation at the White House's hands.

Barack Obama is not going to be stopped by the federal judiciary any more than he is the Congress.  In his mind, he is the ruler of this country, and everybody - EVERYBODY - is subordinate to him.

Makes you wonder if Judge Erickson, unlike Judge Hanen, is even going to bother getting pissed off and save a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing and just let it go.  Because, as we've long known, resistance really is futile.

Exit question: Under the terms of this illegal, unconstitutional EPA rule, would I save time by just peeing directly on The One?  It does now belong to him, after all.
