This is what happens when you sit for the encroachment of your fundamental rights and the guarantees in the Constitution — they continue, right up until you have your wages confiscated on a mere allegation without any due process or hearing.
The Environmental Protection Agency has quietly claimed that it has the authority to unilaterally garnish the wages of individuals who have been accused of violating its rules.
According to The Washington Times, the agency announced the plan to enhance its purview last week in a notice in the Federal Register. The notice claimed that federal law allows the EPA to “garnish non-Federal wages to collect delinquent non-tax debts owed the United States without first obtaining a court order.”
No court order required. No due process.
Simply a government agency that claims you owe it money, without any sort of examination of the truth of the original claim.
You deserve this America, because you have repeatedly sat for rank violations of the black letter of our Constitution when they favored whatever you wanted, or when it was “someone else” who was harmed.
Now it’s your turn.
