Jackson leaves EPA
to mixed reviews

Washington Times, by Ben Wolfgang

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/27/2012 11:22:47 PM

A hero to the environmental movement and a constant thorn in the sides of Republicans and the energy sector, outgoing Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa P. Jackson presided over one of the most controversial and dramatic periods in the agency’s history. She made her mark by helping craft new automobile fuel standards, imposing a ban on new coal-fired power plants, and being among the loudest in calling for action to combat climate change. But Ms. Jackson, who announced her resignation Thursday after four years at the helm of the EPA, also sustained several legal defeats

Obama´s praise of Jackson´s accomplishmemts shows that he is mad:

"...playing a key role in establishing historic fuel economy standards that will save the average American family thousands of dollars at the pump, while also slashing carbon pollution,” Mr. Obama said.

1. The cost to consumers to achieve the EPA´s CAFE standards will be at least $3,000 to $5,000 per car. The added cost will not be offset with fuel savings until year 8 or 9 of ownership.

2. Obama wants to eliminate consumer choice by forcing micro vehicles on us. Americans don´t buy the micro cars & micro trucks that will have to average 56 MPG. We will keep our existing cars longer to avoid buying a 2 seat car that weighs less than 1,800 pounds.

3. Small cars kill, and micro cars will kill an additional 2,000 to 3,000 Americans per year. Tiny plastic capsules offer little mass to absorb collisions.

4. The EPA´s CAFE rules will drive auto manufacturing to China & India, where cheap labor can make micro cars that will have an MSRP of $25,000 in 2020.

I´d like to ask the current "Speaker of the House" WHY in God´s Green Earth is this agency still being funded? This is just ONE reason we need a True Conservative as Speaker of the House in January......

I don´t know your point of view if you say she had mixed reviews. Nothing this woman did was a positive including ducking strict laws about secrecy.Here is Obama riding in on his white horse of transparency and being anything but.They stonewall FOIA requests all the time,even then you gat a heavily redacted account of what happened. This woman should be facing an indictment,not wondering what her next career move is. She´ll probably sit on a board of a radical left wing think tank.

I´m also thinking she avoided doing economic impact studies of her radical war on big energy.I can see her siting there say X is an acceptable number of job losses to fight the myth of climate change.She doesn´t care if a father of 3 loses his livelihood.

You can bet if the EPA was using secret e mail accounts,then there´s other Obama goon depts. doing the same.These people are systematic cheaters.

The Republicans have no strategy to fight this nonsense and until we get serious about our messaging the left will continue to dominate the debate. For decades the left has been able to cultivate their agenda and they are reaping the rewards. Statistic after statistic is available to refute the lies of agencies like the EPA, and yet, we hear nothing from the Republicans. Time to spend some big bucks on ads cleverly produced that will refute the outrageous claims of the EPA and similar agencies. Go Alinsky on their butts. Use ridicule and humor to educate the uninformed. It is time to play by their rules and beat them at their own game. Think outside the box because what we are doing now is not working.

Another corrupt incompetent Democrat hack trying to keep her fat butt out of prison. This the most corrupt administration in all American history and is only going to get worse. Too bad that the MSM won´t acknowledge this fact. So many of these Democrats should be indicted from Obama on down. If the public only knew how bad it is.

I guess she wasn´t radical enough for this Administration. Still, good riddance.

This is a scream:

“Under her leadership, the EPA has taken sensible and important steps ...implementing the first national standard for harmful mercury pollution, taking important action to combat climate change under the Clean Air Act and playing a key role in establishing historic fuel economy standards that will save the average American family thousands of dollars at the pump, while also slashing carbon pollution,” Mr. Obama said.

Does no one find it ironice that the same agency that insist we buy mercury-filled poisonous lightbulbs is the same agency now lauded for "implementing the first national standard for harmful mercury pollution"?

Is there no argument against the preconceived nonsense idea that climate change can be "combatted"? Only air pollution can be somewhat alleviated by certain reasonable regulations. Ditto water. But combatting climate change is a ridiculous notion.

Considering the "leaving" that occurred at the State Department, I have to wonder if Ms Jackson´s Region 6 crucifier, Al Armendariz, really left for the Sierra Club. That leads me to question if Van Jones is still part of our politburo standing committee.

Let´s look some more at Ø´s quote: “Under her leadership, the EPA has taken sensible and important steps to protect the air we breathe and the water we drink..."

It wasn´t under her leadership, or even recently. The sensible and important stuff happened back in the 1960s. "under her leadership" the EPA has only further grown malignantly. It´s only become more bloated, increasingly unnecessary and stifling the economy ... under her leadership.

Wouldn´t it be sweet to see all this stuff (Bengahzi, the East/Gulf coast port strike, etc.) to overwhelm and finally cause this admin. to implode?

Social Security stops trying

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
