It has been fascinating to watch the the elite media and Washington insiders reactions to the speed and efficiency of Trump’s transition team organization and appointee selection.

It’s bad enough that we’ve been treated to widespread temper tantrums, public meltdowns, violent riots, and all sorts of unseemly behavior from the left since Trump’s victory on Tuesday, but from career government employees, this kind of unprofessional nonsense is shameful. Period.

A few weeks ago, the Environmental Protection Agency rolled out a brand new “Climate Justice” program.

This initiative would be incomplete, however, if it did not target those most disproportionately impacted by climate change. It has been well documented that the impacts of a warming and increasingly unstable climate are already weighing...

The last time we checked the regulatory runoff from the Animas River spill, a 132-page report by the Interior Department and Bureau of Reclamation laid the blame for the contamination at the doorstep of the Environmental Protection Agency.
