EPA chief Jackson resigns
amid transparency investigations

Daily Caller, by Michael Bastasch

A Washington attorney says that Environmental Protection Agency Chief Administrator Lisa Jackson’s resignation and investigations into the EPA’s use of secret email accounts are not coincidental. “Life’s full of coincidences, but this is too many,” Competitive Enterprise Institute Senior Fellow Chris Horner told FoxNews.com. “She had no choice.” The Justice Department also plans to release emails Jan. 14 in which EPA Chief Jackson’s alias account discusses coal regulation. According to Horner, this clearly is a factor behind Jackson’s decision to leave the agency.

Looks like Jackson is / was doing her best to support obama´s goal of putting coal out of business.

“12,000 emails from Lisa Jackson’s ‘secondary’ email account that discuss the Obama administration’s war on coal....”

In an alias email account in the name of Richard Windsor in order to avoid FOIA requests.

These people are rotten. In the real world, they´d all be in prison. This was a blatant conspiracy to destroy the coal industry and put this country under the thumb of higher taxes and outrageous utility bills in order to push eco-energy garbage. They should be prosecuted under the RICO act. But by whom???

#1 "Looks like Jackson is / was doing her best to support obama´s goal of putting coal out of business. "

Lisa Jackson is just a spoke in the wheel. Obama´s goal is to put the U.S. out of business. Remember, he grew up in a country which commonly refers to us as the Great White Satan.

Of all the terrible people in this regime, Jackson was the worst; worse than Cass Sunstein, which is saying a lot. Jackson had disdain for the country and the congress. Can you imagine how much time was spent attacking the coal industry if her secret alias email account was used to send 12,000 messages?

I don´t even have to put Chrisy Matthew on to see him say she was victimized by a republican witchhunt because she´s black.

VJ has been in direct negotiations with Iran out of public view which to me is a firing offense also.Of course both sides deny it.We have to attack these corrupt leeches every chance we get.

There´s a RED FLAG here:

The Justice Department also plans to release emails Jan. 14 in which EPA Chief Jackson’s alias account discusses coal regulation.

The DOJ is doing this? Doesn´t that make you suspicious? Are they throwing her under the bus to hide something bigger or to hide a MAJOR offensive against capitalism in general?

We already know the DOJ will do nothing to harm Obama and his agenda, so one must ask why they are doing this.

So, one of the most virulent communists in this Administration is leaving to, among other things, "spend time with her family", usually code for Get Out Of Dodge. If the DOJ is ready to toss a heavy-hitter like Jackson under the bus (if that´s what they´re doing), what they really want to hide must be really, really big.

This should be a big scandal, just like Benghazi was a big scandal, like Fast and Furious was a big scandal, etc. Yea, NOTHING is a big scandal for this administration. No one ever loses their job, no one is ever held accountable for their actions and some how it´s always turned back on Bush or the Republicans!!!

Why is it that when liberal blacks are in charge of anything we see rampant corruption. Conservative blacks bring straight as an arrow honesty to government. Could it be that liberals have an attitude of entitlement and a religious zeal for their agenda? And that liberal blacks even more so? When will we learn that liberalism is a cancer that destroys all it touches. It has already destroyed the black culture and family. Liberal blacks don´t care as long as the white liberal power base gives them their rewards.

And it is in the final stages of destroying us all.

Without a latter-day Bradlee-Bernstein-Woodward combat team in the Washington Plop committed to Obama´s destruction, as the originals were committed to Nixon´s destruction, the present Ministry of Truth will ignore this. As for the release of sanitized Jackson e-mails by the Ministry of Social Justice: move on, nothing to see here.

Why single her out? Is there one AA appointee in the Obama administration, including Obama himself, that is actually doing an okay job and not helping to kill the country? The diversity crowd got their fondest wish of having a minority in every corner of every room but we are certainly paying the price today. Skin color means nothing to most of us but it is everything to them, including the excuse to fail.

This will be interesting on a number of levels. Reminds me of the old Kremlin watchers following the latest intrigues between the various factions of bloodthirsty Soviets. There are no good guys in this, only bad guys battling it out between themselves inside Robbers Roost.

My take is that Jackson, in her battles with Sunstein, forced the little wimp out of the nest. He got beat up by a girl. But, uh oh, he´s an old UC pal of Obama, and Jackson has no Chicago Force Shield, so Obama is having Holder get payback on HER.

The release of her private emails will be great entertainment for the muggles, like disclosing transcripts of communications between Darth Vader and the death star. The MSM will go crackers with the storyline, portraying it as Eric Holder as Han Solo and Barack Obama as Luke battling evil at the highest levels in the Empire. But remember, there are no good guys in this. Only thieves and pickpockets quibbling over how to most effectively fleece us.

There is no honor among thieves.

How much has the EPA abused it powers? How many more scandals wait to be uncovered in the EPA.

Fire everyone in the EPA. Rehire any people that were not involved with any of the abuses. Probably very few. Rebuild from scratch, and redefine their mission.

The leader of the feuding Hatfield family, who fears Obamacare will bankrupt the medical careers of his three children, is jumping into politics to help a West Virginia pharmacist win an open House seat to join the GOP effort to torpedo the president´s trademark program. “They’re going to be put of business,” Mark Hatfield said of three children: a pediatrician, a dentist and a pharmacist. “Obama’s destroyed health care,” he told Secrets.

Five former Buffalo Bills cheerleaders are suing the NFL team for unspecified damages, claiming they weren´t paid for their time at games or mandatory public appearances that left them open to groping and sexual comments. The lawsuit is the third filed this year against a National Football League team by its cheerleaders. The Oakland Raiders and Cincinnati Bengals also have pending wage battles.

ALBANY—Andrew Cuomo put in a written application for Hillary Clinton´s U.S. Senate seat, emphasizing in conversations with then-governor David Paterson that he was “available” for the job, according to interviews and newly available records. In addition, Kirsten Gillibrand, who was ultimately selected by Paterson to succeed Clinton, cemented her standing by commiserating with the governor after a mean-spirited parody on "Saturday Night Live;" teachers´ union leader Randi Weingarten was the only candidate who returned Paterson´s consolation call after the Gillibrand pick in Jan. 2009; and Caroline Kennedy got an unsolicited boost from Afghan president Hamid Karzai.

It´s not just kids who are overdoing screen time. Parents are often just as guilty of spending too much time checking smartphones and e-mail — and the consequences for their children can be troubling. Dr. Jenny Radesky is a pediatrician specializing in child development. When she worked at a clinic in a high-tech savvy Seattle neighborhood, Radesky started noticing how often parents ignored their kids in favor of a mobile device. She remembers a mother placing her phone in the stroller between herself and the baby. "The baby was making faces and smiling at the mom," Radesky says, "and the mom

Spanish art dealer Jose Carlos Bergantiños Diaz helped persuade wealthy buyers to shell out millions of dollars for works he claimed famous masters of modern art had painted. But in reality, U.S. authorities allege, the works he sold as Rothkos and Pollocks were fakes painted by an artist he met on a Manhattan street corner. The alleged scheme stretched for nearly two decades, involved several New York art galleries and earned the conspirators more than $30 million, according to an indictment unsealed in federal court on Monday. Last week, authorities closed in on Bergantiños and his brother, arresting them in Spain, federal prosecutors

LOS ANGELES -- Despite the subzero temperatures and lack of oxygen, people can survive even a long journey in the wheel well of a jetliner. The latest example is a teenager who, according to authorities, stowed away on a 5 1/2-hour flight from San Jose, Calif., to Hawaii. While the number of known stowaway attempts is few, people have survived with surprising frequency. HOW DANGEROUS ARE THE CONDITIONS? Very. At 38,000 feet - the cruising altitude of the Hawaiian Airlines flight that the FBI says the 15-year-old took Sunday - the outside air temperature is about minus 85 degrees. The

It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
