The Senate confirmed President Donald Trump's nominee, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, to lead the Environmental Protection Agency on Friday in a mostly party line vote.

OMG ,they’ll need more Kleenex at the EPA ,LOL
Chucky loses... again.
Pruitt is going to cause some idiot libs to have nervous breakdowns.
Every vote has been along party lines. They need to just invoke the nuclear option and be done with it.
..and no one watches or pays any attention to them.
As Rush said over 25 years ago, with the Left it’s “Style over Substance”, they do stupid stunts to show “solidarity” and “concern” for the crisis du jour..............
Wait until the EPA releases a directive stating that Global Warming is not an event caused by mankind.
We could have done this 3 weeks ago and already have the EPA gutted. I don’t understand the dawdling around and dilly dally. It is total bull crap that we don’t have Gorsuch seated and voting on SCOTUS and I heard that these Rinos and not even going to START with his processing until MARCH 27. Why don’t you come back from your unearned paid vacations and just nuke him in and cut the crap. WE WON THE ELECTION!!
Now this my friends, is a win. Great news. This has been a renegade, out of control agency for a Long time.
Hopefully there is nothing in all those emails the judge ordered released next Tuesday.
Bu..bu...but... the dem senators stayed alllll night! They couldn’t stop it?
Now gut that rogue agency.
Get a cup of coffee. Then start firing people by the thousands.
Perhaps their pink slips will suffice
This just MADE MY DAY!!!!!!!!!!!
Because of an activity I love, I did volunteer work for that cause & the majority of people who also do it are Envirowhackos. I kept my head down & my mouth shut because I was badly outnumbered - the one time I spoke up (one-on-one situation), the person I was “discussing” an issue with got very nasty & made it personal. Anyway, two years ago, I gave up that activity, but am still in very occasional touch with a couple of the people in that group. I can tell you that they are going to be SUICIDAL over Pruitt being head of the EPA. The venom will be dripping knee deep every time his name comes up & they will probably be bald from tearing their hair out in frustration. They are also on the Social Justice bandwagon - anything Trump will further enhance their mental illness. I cannot begin to tell you how HAPPY all of this makes me.
BTW, the next time I have to see any of them socially (probably at the funeral of the next one in the group who dies - that was the occasion of the last time I saw a bunch of them), I will be wearing my Ivanka Trump perfume.
“Wait until the EPA releases a directive stating that Global Warming is not an event caused by mankind.”
Or there is no GW in the first place.
Wow, the Democrat Thug Party is standing in complete opposition to us.
How do you spell TRUMP?
Yep.... they will freak out.
“Hopefully there is nothing in all those emails the judge ordered released next Tuesday.”
That is a bit of a worry. You could take almost anyone’s e-mail and with enough slicing and dicing make it into something. No doubt Chuckee S or Chuckee Todd will be looking for something, anything.
Another good win. There have been losses (Labor was self-inflicted and should have withdrawn his name sooner, plus General Flynn was taken down by Ctrl-Left moles inside our government), but it’s mostly big wins.
I just pray that President Trump will continue doing the right thing, build the wall, deport illegals, repeal Obamacare, and cut the size of FedGov - quickly on all of them before outside events intervene.
Actually it was bipartisan with Heitkamp and Manchin supporting Pruitt.
T-3: Nominated as the head of EPA
T-2: Confirmed as the head of EPA
T-1: Head the EPA
Liftoff: Dissolve the EPA
One can only conclude that they don't want to stop the confirmations. What they want is the issue as something to rally their voters.
They got their scalps with Flynn (undeserved) and Pruitt (deserved...too much pro-invader history).
Now, it's time for President Trump and AG Sessions to DRAIN THE SWAMP!!
Go Pruitt! Go Trump!
GUT THE HELL OUT OF THE WORST ROGUE AGENCY IN DC!
What’s the EPAs equivalent to State’s 7th floor?
Regardless,they all need to go. It’s an open secret that over the decades, but especially under Obama, the EPA has long outsourced almost all its “research” and policy work to the Sierra Club and other leftwing environmental organizations.
I think you mean Puzder (Sec of Labor), not Pruitt ...
Great! Now start taking it apart.
AGREED. Pruitt needs to clean house COMPLETELY. If your and EPA employee from the Obama years “YOU’RE FIRED!”
More winning and I’m still not sick of it!

The dems are trying to make Trumps team appear to be partisan and controversial by party lining every appointment. Years from now, this will be looked back upon as a second moment in our history when people took back the reigns of government, without violence, but not without a fight. Lets hope the establishment that is fighting to keep its power over the people today will have been relegated to the trash heap by then.
They are starting to crack. 2 jumped party !
“Democrats Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin of West Virginia, both from energy-producing states, said they will vote with Republicans to confirm Pruitt. Just one GOP senator, Susan Collins of Maine, said she would vote against Pruitt.
The final vote was 52 to 46 in favor of confirmation.”
Agreed / just copy/pasted the title as it was written
The fascist, obstructionist “Democrats” need to knock of their BS and get this done. Clintoonie lost. They need to get over it and “move on”.
This is one of the most important appointments by President Trump. The EPA needs to be gutted root and branch. It’s become a communist anti-America agency hell-bent on destroying the economy through regulation and fiat.
God Bless President Trump and Secretary Pruitt.
Hopefully they’ll need some cardboard boxes and packing tape.
Go to the department that chokes the life out of farmers. Advise them that 5 people will remain employed at the end of the day. They will be the ones who can shred and reverse the most regulations by 5 pm. Go.
Go to the department that ordered guns, ammo and military hardware for the EPA. Fire the lot of them and put a permanent toxic employee memo in their govt. file.
Go to the department that spilled the gold mine holding pond into the river in CO. Assign them to monitoring field mouse populations in Alaska’s north slope, with a pay cut.
Joe knows that Trump just saved his state with yesterday’s signed HR but a continuation of Obama’s EPA actions would kill it for good.
Joe Manchin - coal. Heitkamp - fracking. Re-election year 2018 and 2018. In 2019, if they are still in the Senate, they will return to the fold. And they are given permission to vote their intelligence on this one issue, although Manchin votes intelligently more often than that.
Thank you for the correction. I did mean Puzder for Secretary of Labor.
