Agenda 21: Sackett v EPA Case on Supreme Court Docket Tomorrow

In 2005 Mike and Chantell Sackett purchased a vacant lot in a fully built-out portion of property along the shores of Priest Lake, in northern Idaho, with the ideas of building a modest 3-bedroom home. In 2007, they started work, but were forced to stop when the EPA claimed they were filling a wetland without a permit.

We need to work on real infrastructure platform projects that will include water management and fund the Army Corps on Engineers to carry out their responsibilities and give FEMA the financing they need to complete their commitments as well as helping the farmers to get back on their feet after the floods, drought and fire that wrought so much damage this past year. We will be facing a global famine and mass population deaths if we don’t gag and shackle these red tape fiends. Birthers, 25th Amendmenters, impeachers, to the battlefield!
