Back in 2015, we covered the Obama administration’s far-reaching Waters of the United States (WOTUS) Rule and the pushback it received at the time.  States’ suits are making their way through the courts, and there is good news to report!

One of the reasons I suspect President Donald Trump trolls the mainstream media and progressives so much is that it provides cover for his elite team of regulatory snipers.

Among the most effective of these regulation killers is the Environmental Protection Agency’s Chief Administrator Scott Pruitt, whose rollbacks of Obama-era insanity make...
