Well, obviously the Court has forgotten that this is all covered in the King James version of the Constitution where it talks about:

  • the holy Corporation
  • the holy Billionaire
  • the holy Profit
  • the holy Dollar
  • the Divine Right of the 1%
  • and of course, the 10 Freedoms

This wheeler “guy” even looks evil, no wonder the brainless one picked him/it for the job. The worse they are, the more trump likes them, made quite obvious since 1-21-2017.

Hardly surprising really that these entities blatantly ignore rulings. When they see what dump can do, without any consequences they feel emboldened i presume.

Another mug that looks like Mussolini.

[D]icamba, a poisonous weed-killer that is notorious for its tendency to drift and destroy nearby crops.

This is no different than SARS-CoV-2 that is being spread by those who refuse to practice caution toward others. If this toxic chemical can do this imagine what it is doing to our cells if we ingest the foods irradiated with it. Might explain some US Americans. I stick to organic but if the nearby farmers use this chemical I am not protected and this was and is true of GMO crops that contaminate nearby non-GMO fields. Then all those patented terminator seeds and we see clearly what a culture of death US America really is.

EPA "entirely failed to recognize the enormous social cost to farming communities where use of dicamba herbicides had turned farmer against farmer, and neighbor against neighbor."

This is the entire raisons d’être of this administration on behalf of the corporations that poison Life.

Yep, we will remain in the streets until a new world takes shape.

Accountability is not department in the US government. Asking anyone in the executive department to be held accountable is like asking a corporation to self regulate - it ain’t happening. The job of Americans is to hold their government accountable, not to ask the government to hold itself accountable. They are practically polar opposites. This is why people should utilize the powers they are given, rather than begging for justice. The greatest power we have is voting, but its useless if you just vote democrat whether they effectively represent you or not - you must instead punish those who don’t represent by voting someone else into office to replace them. When it comes to executive appointments, anything else is just wishful thinking. Only by voting for responsible government can it occur, not by asking the stacked courts to uphold justice for the first time in their careers.

“It’s mind-boggling to see the EPA blatantly ignore a court ruling, especially one that provides such important protections for farmers and the environment,” Stephanie Parent, a senior attorney with CBD, said…"

Why on Earth is anyone’s mind still boggled by the criminal behaviors of the ruling class? Isn’t it obvious that the ruling class and its functionaries in government are contemptuous of laws? Isn’t it obvious they are scornful of morality? Isn’t it obvious they are nihilists?

Please stop the gasping and pearl clutching. The ruling class and its functionaries despise humanity. They despise Mother Earth. They despise women and children. They despise love. They believe nothing. Existence is barren and meaningless for them. Life is totally valueless for them. They respond only to fear.

The EPA. Everyone Pretends Assholes.
Pretend to keep the waters, soil, and air safe and behind the pretend is injury and death. As long as Dumbo is in office, all pretend do-good administrators feel safe to pay homage to the corporations of these death chemicals, they know Dumbo has their backs and will pardon their crimes. November is an essential time to turn the tide, if Biden is elected and amenable.
In the wings of the noise of Covid-19 and Black Lives Matter are posed ready assailants of our environment and humanity, busy at destroying.

We have been organic growers and bee keepers since the 70’s and have seen the destruction to ecosystems and to our own efforts personally what with one “safe” EPA/Monsanto chemical or another.

Here from Pesticide Action Network filling in the cracks of BS from the corporate/govt. lackeys.
"Myths about pesticides are a testimony to the power of advertising, marketing and lobbying. Pesticide corporations, like big tobacco and the oil industry, have systematically manufactured doubt about the science behind pesticides, and fostered the myth that their products are essential to life as we know it — and harmless if “used as directed.”

More on their super informative and disinformation dissolving web site. Wheeler is one of the most dangerous Trump plants out there at this moment. To the continued existence of the world as we know and love it that is. Enough damage has already been done.

Someone needs to tell Trump that dicamba is a cure for Covid-19.

And they only “fear” the people when we rise up en mass against the system the global elite have constructed to contain them. If we follow the rules of that system and try to create any kind of constructive change within it, we the people are neutered. And this includes hanging our hats and applauding the judiciary when we think a ruling is in the interests of the people or planet. It just isn’t so Joe.

Get out of the box of the system’s allowable remedies.

Good one!!

The extent to which the ignorant populace fails to grasp what is going on in this country is discouraging. You cant ask corrupt courts to uphold the law, anymore than you can ask criminals to become law abiding citizens. The reason for the courts is to uphold privilege and repress the poor, you see this everywhere you look - if you look. They are not going to tell the head of the EPA what to do, even if the EPA is directly dumping trillions of gallons of cyanide into the national water supply, and it probably is. That is an appointed officer of the king.

Oh,… and by the way, there is no separation of the powers, not anymore. The Democrats, Republicans, Courts, Presidency, congress and senate - its all the same power, without any separation at all!

If we were going to wield CONTEMPT as an answer we would have used it many times already. Our chicken crap congress is not interested in justice, only dog and pony shows.
