Once upon a time, Congress created independent regulatory agencies for a reason. It gave them five-member commissions, in which the chairman of each commission holds the deciding vote, for a reason—to avoid ill-advised, partisan agendas. In another words, each agency has a significant amount of freedom to make nonpartisan regulations and rulings for the betterment of the US.

So it is with some sorrow that I mention the following Federal Agencies who have directly or indirectly joined together with White House to advance a partisan environmental agenda that has no real democratic support. 

  •  Department of Homeland Security
  • Consumer Product Safety Commission
  • Environmental Protection Agency
  • The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
  • Federal Communication Commission
  • Office of Natural Resources Revenue
  • Department of Labor, the Mine Safety and Health Administration
  • Bureau of Land Management
  • National Park Service
  • Department of Interior
  • Department of Energy
  • Bureau of Ocean Energy Management
  • Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement
  • Department of Transportation,
  • Consumer Product Safety Commission
  • Department of Defense
  • Department of Health and Human Services
  • Department of Agriculture
  • Army Corps o Engineers
  • Department of Commerce
  • Internal Revenue Service
  • Inspector General
  • Surgeon General
