Civil Air Patrol’s Tom Carper: “Good riddance” to Trump’s EPA Chief Scott Pruitt; Trump Buried Climate Report

Sen Tom Carper Civil Air Patrol

Delaware Senator Tom Carper is a member of Civil Air Patrol and no advocate for Donald Trump


“I think we can all agree: [Trump EPA chief] Scott Pruitt shouldn’t be running anything. A well-deserved, one-way ticket back to Oklahoma. In coach! I know a little about leadership, and this guy was just not a leader. And we’re better off without him. Our country’s better off without him. And, I hate to be unkind about it but, frankly, good riddance.” – Sen Tom Carper, Lt Col Civil Air Patrol

“The truth of the matter is that the Trump Administration tried to bury one of the most devastating climate reports in our nation’s history over a long holiday weekend. While Americans were celebrating with loved ones, President Trump hoped that we would miss the alarming conclusions from scientists within his own government about the ever-increasing threats of climate change.” – Sen Tom Carper, Lt Col Civil Air Patrol

  1. I would like to throw some shade at [Pacific Region and Wing Staff] by giving you another whack-job that Civil Air Patrol inducted into our ranks as part of “government relations” to dig us further into the hole: Donald Augustine Rogers

    [additional text and links redacted]

    [Admin: We’ve added the first part of your story in sequence. An editor is working on the full release. Thank you for your effort.]

  2. Good evening,

    While our personal experience doesn’t quite top Civil Air Patrol’s experience with Steve Stockman, we would like to add our former [Maryland] governor and US congressman Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. “Bob” was inducted into Civil Air Patrol’s Congressional Squadron at our Aberdeen Proving Ground National Guard facility in 1995 by our [then] Wing commander CAP Col. Gene Przybylowicz. He was even given an O-flight by Chick Goetz. You won’t have to rely on anyone’s memory of this, see here [link redacted].

    Why are we telling you this? What did Ehrlich do to draw our attention and concern regarding the example he might be setting for our cadets and future leaders?

    See your inbox.

  3. My associate David Miller did a first rate job in 2011 putting all of Missouri legislative squadron members in writing… [link redacted]

    [Admin: Thank you. This has been forwarded to those who can use it best..]

  4. I don’t know if this will help you much, but I recall that Missouri Congressman Stanley Cox was inducted into the Missouri Wing Legislative Squadron some time in the fall of 2008.

  5. Patricia H. Willis, Mississippi.

  6. You could add former Missouri Governor Matt Blunt, Major CAP. Civil Air Patrol inducted him into the Missouri Legislative Squadron in [November] 2007, even though whiffs of corruption were swirling around him and his Chief of Staff Ed Martin throughout 2007. The announcement of Martin’s replacement came on November 21st 2007 and by January 22nd 2008 US Naval Academy graduate Matt Blunt announced he would not run for re-election.

    I can tell readers a few things from having been inside the walls.

    1. Reports coming to and from AuxBeacon have driven CAP leaders to foam at the mouth and gnash teeth in anger at their newfound public exposure.

    2. Threats and abuse to members have [been] so bad for so long that this outcome should have been expected, but it wasn’t. They’ve never seen anything like this and commanders are now caught with their pants down.

    3. Some believe that much more dirt has been sent to you and that you are not releasing it, either to give them a chance to clean their own house per Ray Hayden’s Phoenix Plan or because you have turned over the worst of it to Federal Law Enforcement.

    Care to comment?

  8. How about Scott Gessler? I don’t know if he still is, but he was a most certainly a member of Civil Air Patrol who merged his professional and political interests on the taxpayer dime.

  9. Here’s one to add that CAP has tried to cover. Disgraced former Bama Gov Robert J. Bentley.

  10. CAP is rapidly scrambling to deal with what you have shown here. Look up our Kentucky Lt Gov who was just “surprise” inducted into Civil Air Patrol this past November. Seriously.

  11. Oh, man! Exposing this link to US government “in-appropriations” to Civil Air Patrol is really going to panic the leadership. It also could be a boon to those just waking up to how these people have worked the Jedi mind tricks to seed a generation of deluded voters that put a man like Donald Trump into the White House.

  12. Some of your stories have been opening with a quote. That’s a nice touch and sets the tone for whatever is to come.

    For this story how about a quote like “…because having relations in public affairs is one of the things our leaders do best.”

    Please be sure to add our Joel Kitchens to your growing list of how CAP gains an advantage lobbying congress by giving away membership and rank.

    On the morning of July 21st 2018 Wisconsin’s Joel Kitchens was at Cherryland Airport for a ceremony performed by members of the Door County Composite Squadron of the Civil Airport, inducting Kitchens as a major in the Wisconsin Wing Legislative Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol (CAP). He joins 19 state senators and 35 Assembly members who have joined CAP, which is the United States Air Force Auxiliary.

    Kitchens was inducted by Lt. Col. David Fish, squadron commander of the Door County CAP.

    Kitchens then held an informal Q&A session with the five cadets who attended the regular meeting of the organization.

  14. You should do a story on Georgia’s state senator Michael Williams who reported to jail yesterday (Wednesday DEC26) after being indicted to be released on $10,000 bond.

    Williams is accused of lying to investigators and filing a false insurance claim related to a break-in he reported in May at his campaign office. Williams’ campaign manager said $300,000 worth of computer equipment was taken in the burglary.

  15. Will you add my original stories back into this?

    [Admin: Yes. We are researching to confirm the older ones, please always provide links or other proof for any accusations or headlines. We have to be careful.]
