IN BRIEF
Scott Pruitt’s Lasting Legacy1

On Thursday afternoon, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt finally tendered his resignation due to an endless stream of ethics complaints. He noted that the “unrelenting attacks on me personally” and on his family had “taken a sizable toll on us all.” And that is a fact beyond dispute.

From the moment Pruitt was nominated for the position of EPA chief he faced an onslaught of unrelenting attacks2 from the Left. Outside of Trump himself, no one in his administration was more despised and more of a political target than was Pruitt. He came into the most hallowed of leftist agencies preaching Trump’s deregulation message, and he quickly got to work acting on it. Pruitt’s mission was to roll back the abusive regulatory overreach from an agency that Barack Obama had used as a battering ram against Americans’ individual property rights and business development. But one does not do such things to the sacred agency of the environment without a vicious counterattack.

Unfortunately, Pruitt was not prepared for the laser-focused Leftmedia scrutiny that was designed not to merely report on his leadership but to exploit any ethically questionable misstep, no matter how insignificant, as a means of seeing him removed. And Pruitt certainly made his share of missteps3, albeit few of which in and of themselves proved truly scandalous. Instead, it was more a case of death by a thousand paper cuts.

However, an overall review of Pruitt’s short tenure at the EPA reveals a legacy that conservatives should look upon positively. Pruitt worked to tame one of the biggest swamp creatures of the Obama-era, and he did so successfully. We hope his predecessor will have comparable results while avoiding needless self-inflicted wounds.

Leftist Assaults Kid, Steals His MAGA Hat4

The Left’s hate rhetoric against Donald Trump was manifest again this week during a group’s late-night visit to Whataburger in San Antonio, Texas, where an incendiary confrontation involving a teenaged victim occurred. A member of the group filmed an anti-Trumper with serious anger issues as he threw a drink in the kid’s face and took his “Make America Great Again” hat from the victim’s head. All the while, the perpetrator unleashed an avalanche of expletives. “You ain’t supporting s—t n—r, little b—h a—s motherf—r,” he yelled, adding, “This is going to go great in my f—g fireplace, b—h!”

This is the latest episodic outcome of Demo Rep. Maxine Waters’s ignoble incitement of hateful confrontation5 to “get out and … create a crowd,” “push back” and “tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere!”

Mission accomplished?

As for the victim, in a post-incident interview he maturely stated, “I support my president, and if you don’t, let’s have a conversation about it instead of ripping my hat off. I just think a conversation about politics is more productive … than taking my hat and yelling subjective words to me.” He also should be commended for his calm demeanor during the ordeal, which is clearly evident in the video. That’s far more than we can say for the “Party of Tolerance.”

The San Antonio Police Department has apprehended and charged6 the aggressor, 30-year-old Kino Jimenez.

FEATURED ANALYSIS
Rolling Back Obama’s Legacy With 24 Rescissions24

Michael Swartz

Live by the pen and phone, die by the pen and phone. This week, President Donald Trump’s administration undid yet more malfeasance perpetrated under the previous regime’s rule-by-fiat. And leftists are losing their minds. Again.

We start with education admissions practices. One of the most exciting days in a parent’s life is that day a letter comes from the college of their child’s choice — a letter stating that, yes, that child has been accepted into the next incoming freshman class. Unfortunately, some students don’t make this cut due to insufficient grades, test scores, extracurricular activities or other less objective factors.

But when the students in question are academically superior and natural leaders and yet are denied admission when more ordinary students are being accepted because of their race or economic status, that clear-cut discrimination is cause for action. In some cases, aggrieved students — with the aid of an advocacy group25 — have filed suit. One of these, a lawsuit by a group of Asian-American students, targets Harvard University26 with a discrimination claim that even the school found to be true through its own investigation. Even so, Harvard continued to downgrade Asian-American applicants anyway — ironically, in the name of “diversity.” Documents unsealed27 as part of the Harvard suit revealed that the school used a subjective, personality-based rating system to artificially lower the number of Asian-Americans admitted.

That case could eventually be heard by the Supreme Court, but in the meantime it’s prompted the Trump administration, led by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, to act. This impetus accompanied an earlier executive order from President Trump directing government agencies to scrap wherever possible such guidance as spelled out in the infamous “Dear Colleague” letters administered during Barack Obama’s administration. These executive end-runs were little more than edicts and coercions28 aimed at institutions of higher learning and lacking legislative input. Their goal? To create a more “diverse” student population solely based on race and economic status.

The rescission of Obama’s direction that diversity is “a compelling state interest” generally means a return to George W. Bush-era policy29, which held that the factors of race and economic status should be a last resort in promoting a diverse student body. As Robby Soave at Reason opined30, the Bush approach “was consistent with Supreme Court precedent that has permitted affirmative action but narrowly limited its use.”
