EPA boss tried to 'cleanse' personnel with perverted internal surveys asking about sex habits and public toilets


(NaturalNews) The inappropriate and depraved behavior of some of the federal government's highest-ranking officials is just plain getting out of hand. The most recent example involves a former top official of the Environmental Protection Agency, which has been weaponized by President Obama and his regime, and used as a tool to subvert American principles of liberty in the name of "ecological justice."

But, as noted by Dr. David Lewis in his new book, Science for Sale, this kind of behavior is historic.

Beginning in the 1970s, the agency ignored warnings from its own scientists about MTBE – a gasoline additive agency chiefs approved – and wound up saddling taxpayers with billions of dollars in costs to remove it from contaminated soil and groundwater, as noted by Focus For Health. Similarly, in the 1990s, the agency approved land application of treated sewage sludges, also known as biosolids, over the objections of the agency's own scientists (again), which included Lewis himself. That, too, turned out to be a poor decision.

Today, all of the pollutants that the agency supposedly regulates in the air and water are nevertheless present in soil at millions of times higher concentrations. So much for that.

Some questions appeared aimed at figuring out if a candidate could keep quiet about scandal

As for the current EPA epic fail, Lewis notes:

"To understand why EPA often mishandles science, one must appreciate how disturbingly misguided some of its leadership, past and present, has been. In my book ... I discuss some notable examples, beginning with my own top career EPA boss, former Acting Assistant Administrator Henry L. Longest, II."

In 2003, Longest started screening the next generation of mid-level EPA career managers who would eventually rise to oversee the agency's Office of Research & Development (ORD). To guide potential replacements, he would hand out Margaret Wheatley's book, Turning to One Another, which was complete with ORD's official seal.

Wheatley pushed environmentalists to abandon Western science in favor of "New Science," an experience that leaves people in a state of confusion, which she defined as the "space of not knowing" and the "abyss." As they passed through the abyss, new scientists cast aside their religious beliefs and sexual inhibitions, turning to one another.

In order to implement Wheaten's philosophy, Longest issued a questionnaire to all future ORD managers, assuring them that a confidential code would supplant their real names. Still, he also asked that they sign a consent form that gave permission to decode the coded names to enhance the value of the "research data."

The questionnaire, which was eventually leaked to the media, seemed to be aimed at learning about employees' feelings about promiscuity. For instance, they were asked to either agree or disagree with the following statements:

"I am a very flirtatious person; When I'm attracted to someone, I am overwhelmed by desire; Almost everybody has something sexy about them; I have dated a lot of people; I have difficulty talking to attractive persons of the opposite sex; I become self-conscious when using public toilets."

In addition, Longest would also include statements about religion, such as: "I think about God; I regularly attend religious services; I put my trust in God; I seek God's help."

"Apparently, he was interested in knowing whether they had any moral reservations about becoming 'new scientists,'" Lewis wrote.

And other statements seemed aimed at seeing whether or not they could keep quiet if anything scandalous occurred: "If a story in the media criticized ORD, I would feel embarrassed; and I'm always respectful of people of higher status than myself."

Demeaning to women

Lewis says that Longest was also known throughout the EPA for demeaning women – and yet, he remained to finish out his career at his own pace, because though formal complaints were filed, nothing ever happened and his behavior never changed.

"Over his long career, he received EPA's highest honors, including two Presidential awards in Rose Garden ceremonies at the White House," Lewis wrote.
