I wish I could believe that the increased monitoring of my blog by housegate10.house.gov, IP Address: 18.104.22.168 did not mean something sinister. But experience tells me they are likely trying to artfully construct some kind of case against Dr. Armendariz for the upcoming inquisition before Senator Inhofe and the industry funded GOP political machine.
Someone is paying an intern or staff person who has spent the past few weeks combing through every single blog post I have ever posted on the EPA or Dr. Armendariz. This person has gone over and over the same blog posts.
The industry supported political machine will craft together a case against the EPA and Dr. Al that is similar to the motion to compel the Range Resources attorneys crafted against me. They will ignore the real-life suffering of their constituents documented in those blog posts and the comments from their constituents under the posts.
Watch for Rosie the Riveter moments because, like the motion to compel, it may be artfully put together but when deconstructed it will look something liks this:
- She knows him
- She knows her
- She hates fracking
- She has the audacity to help landowners document contamination on their property
- She is part of a conspiracy
Smart people don’t need bullet points to deconstruct the manufactured fairy tale of this industry supported political machine.
Smart people will remember the FACT CHECK that EPA regulation was tougher under Bush than it has been under Obama.
The Range settlement has more nuance, a fact Loftin hoped he could ignore but the smart people who voted in that election didn’t.
Political machines that are not supported by constituents and out of touch with constituents will not last.
