[Ed. – It’s in the soon-to-be-ratified 28th Amendment, which states that any president named Barack Obama can do whatever the hell he wants.]
The administration’s latest unconstitutional move comes as one of its increasingly lawless and dictatorial agencies takes upon itself the power to redraw the boundaries of a state and redistribute the land of American citizens.
Just when you thought the imperial presidency of Barack Obama couldn’t get any worse, consider the citizens of Riverton, Wyo. They woke up one morning to be told by the Environmental Protection Agency they no longer lived in the sovereign state of Wyoming, but in the Wind River Indian Reservation.
The EPA’s redrawing of the state’s boundaries came at year’s end in response to a request from the Northern Arapaho and Eastern Shoshone tribes for “state status” under the Clean Air Act to get more grant money and sovereignty in monitoring air quality.
Instead of giving the tribes the authority to conduct air quality monitoring, the EPA, which continues to act as an unelected fourth branch of government, unilaterally and unconstitutionally voided a 1905 agreement between Congress and Wyoming revising the reservation’s boundaries. This, in effect, transferred 1 million acres of Wyoming to the tribes, including Riverton.
