Judge SLAPS Obama With Ruling That Has Potential To RUIN The Rest Of His Term

The question of whether the Bureau of Land Management was sanctioned to set the polices for hydraulic fracturing — better known as fracking — was answered Tuesday. Liberals and tree-huggers alike, be prepared.

From Western Journalism:

U.S. District Judge Scott Skavdahl ruled the BLM did not have that authority, saying Congress has not authorized federal regulators to set rules for fracking.

Skavdahl asserted the job of the court is to interpret whether Congress has authorized the regulation of fracking, not to determine what is good or bad for the environment.

The rules would require the disclosure of ingredients used by the petroleum developers to improve the results of fracking.

In the ruling, Skavdahl wrote the Interior Department rule “is in excess of its statutory authority and contrary to law.”

Neal Kirby, a spokesman for the Independent Petroleum Association of America, was happy with the judge’s ruling.

“BLM did not have the authority to issue its rule in the first place,” Kirby said in a statement. “Today’s decision demonstrates BLM’s efforts are not needed and that states are — and have for over 60 years been — in the best position to safely regulate hydraulic fracturing.”

The new ruling is receiving criticism by environmental groups.

Lena Moffitt, director of the Sierra Club’s Beyond Dirty Fuels campaign, said, “While there is no way to ever make fracking safe, the oil and gas industry has repeatedly proven that it needs more standards to keep the public safe from the dangers of fossil fuels, not less.”

The BLM is a waste of tax payer money and has exercised its unrighteous dominion over the states for far too long. It’s time for the states to come to together and tell it to piss off. A state is it’s own master and not at the mercy of some federal bureaucracy.
