EPA "Experiments" on Old, Sick, and Children

Think Dustin Hoffman v. "Dr." Mengele.

This has been ongoing for a while, but under the radar.  The MFM doesn't give a rip, and Conservatives haven't yet jumped on the bandwagon.

The Obama Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says no law empowers any judge to stop it from conducting illegal scientific experiments on seniors, children and the sick.

That astounding assertion will be tested Friday, when a federal district court in Alexandria decides whether it has jurisdiction to hear claims made by the American Tradition Institute that EPA researchers are exposing unwary and genetically susceptible senior citizens to air pollutants the agency says can cause a variety of serious cardiac and respiratory problems, including sudden death.

Say what?

...EPA-employed or -funded researchers have intentionally exposed a variety of people to concentrated levels of different air pollutants, including particulate matter (soot and dust), diesel exhaust, ozone and chlorine gas — the latter substance more recognized as a World War I-era chemical weapon than as an outdoor air pollutant....


...The American Tradition Institute contends in its lawsuit that the EPA has broken virtually every rule established to protect human subjects used in scientific experiments, including the Nuremberg Code, ethics principles for human experimentation adopted following the Nuremberg Trials at the end of World War II, and similar U.S. regulations known as “The Common Rule.”...

OK.  So how does EPA intend to defend itself?

The answer is meaningful.  They will not deny the specific allegations.  Instead, EPA argues that it is not subject to any law on the matter.

Mengele would be proud.  There was no law which prohibited his activities, either.

American Tradition Institute?

You're kidding, right? These nutjobs rebranded when KKK became too toxic. They've got more in common with Mengele than the NRA.
