HIS LAMEST HOUR
Breitbart Delingpole: Pruitt
Is Gone, but Trump Is Still Winning the Energy Wars
[T]he departure of Scott Pruitt tell you all you need to know.
It was about desperate, vengeful progressives claiming a political scalp as their peevish sop to console themselves for their despair that Donald Trump is #winning. It was a big scalp, too, to give them their miserable due. Scott Pruitt... gave Trump the moral support he needed to make the key decision (opposed by many within the White House, notably Javanka and then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson) to pull the U.S. out of the Paris climate accord.
Under the new EPA, both those rattlesnakes have been defanged and will shortly be crushed underfoot. So whatever satisfaction the left may derive from the tiny victory of booting Pruitt out of office, they’ve still lost the war...
His replacement, Andrew Wheeler, though, is their worst nightmare.
He’s an ex-coal-industry lobbyist.
He led the team – with Steve Milloy – that killed Cap and Trade in 2009/10.
He gets – far more than Scott Pruitt ever did – that environmentalism has nothing to do with saving the planet and everything to do with killing capitalism.
Pruitt may be gone.
But the same president remains in the White House...
