Update: Agenda 21- Sacketts v EPA

Mike Sackett, who terms the battle “David versus Goliath,” said at the Supreme Court Monday, “Property owners have their right to their day in court, and the EPA has to be subject to the rule of law.”
He says the couple’s lot sits in a residential neighborhood with sewer lines and homes built all around. The EPA maintains that experts have found wetlands on the lot.
The Natural Resources Defense Council, writing a brief in support of the EPA, said that the Sacketts “should not be rewarded for failing to utilize the multiple administrative processes that they could (and should) have followed to achieve a resolution of their concerns.”
In Monday’s hearing, Justice Elena Kagan questioned why the Sacketts didn’t simply file for a wetlands permit. “Couldn’t you have gotten the legal determination that you wanted through that process?” Attorneys for the Sacketts say the process would be exceptionally costly and time-consuming, especially when they maintain that there is no need for such a permit because their lot doesn’t contain wetlands.
A number of the Justices seemed empathetic to the Sacketts’ argument that, without the ability to sue in federal court, they’d essentially be left with no real way to challenge the EPA’s order or threatened fines.
Justice Samuel Alito asked Justice Department attorney Malcolm Stewart, “Don’t you think most ordinary homeowners would say this kind of thing can’t happen in the United States?
A decision is expected by June.

Thankyou for standing for Americans Justice Alito! Kagan is an illegal appointee,made by an illegal POTUS. She is a crook. A UN Agenda 21 supporter,obamacare supporter,also as solicitor general covered up at least 9 obama eligibility cases. She also helped institute Shariah finance. Throw her and Sotomayer both out.

I would like to know how the EPA has anything to say when they waste more money and let big money men do as they please. The citizen has a right to the land when it is bought, Not the government’s hinchmen! They need ran out of the country just like the CIA, FBI, EEOC, NAACP, UAW, AFLCIO, DEA, ATF, FEMA, Homeland Security and any other corrupt bunch of crooks trying to screw over the citizens of America. Semper Fi.
