Another EPA crock: 'P' is for 'propaganda'
A new report shows wealthy extremists' “capture” of the Obama administration's Environmental Protection Agency has made it anything but an honest broker of taxpayer dollars.
The report by the minority staff of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works describes a “Billionaire's Club” that “directs and controls the far-left environmental movement, which in turn controls policy decisions and lobbies” on the EPA's behalf.
The club donates “large sums to intermediaries” that “funnel the money to other 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) organizations,” creates “phony ‘grassroots' movements” and promotes “bogus” anti-fossil-fuel “propaganda disguised as science and news” while maximizing charitable tax-deduction loopholes.
Doing their part, EPA extremists send taxpayer dollars to what The Examiner of Washington calls “former employers and colleagues” at far-left groups such as the National Resources Defense Council and Environmental Defense Fund. Each group has received $1 million-plus in Obama EPA grants.
Instead of funding valid science that follows where evidence leads, the EPA funds one-sided “research” that “confirms” the eco-wacko environmental agenda. So long as the “Billionaire's Club” controls it, the EPA might as well be called the Environmental Propaganda Agency.
