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.

Great point, #2--they should be prosecuted, but by whom? Just another ho hum story that will go under the rug. There´s no story here.
People die and the story goes under the rug--this administration is so guilty of so many crimes, but who will prosecute--NO ONE!

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 righteous indignation burns a little brighter on this side of the Atlantic than it does in Europe and beyond — the United States, per Fitzgerald, “having about it still that quality of the idea.” Forged in revolution, informed by soaring sentiment, and defined by acts of variously prudent dissidence, Americans of all sorts fancy themselves to be fighting the good fight.

WASHINGTON — The case of Farrah Fawcett’s missing portrait is getting a redo. The University of Texas is appealing a Los Angeles Superior Court jury verdict from December that an iconic portrait of the late actress by Andy Warhol belongs to her on-again off-again lover, actor Ryan O’Neal. Fawcett was 62 when she died of cancer in 2009 and she bequeathed all her artwork, including her own creations, to the University of Texas at Austin, where she studied art in the1960s. O’Neal, however, took the painting from her Wilshire Boulevard condo after she died and has maintained that it was always his _

Obama program aims to reduce

President Barack Obama is attempting to lower the rate of “births” — and separately, pregnancies — among blacks and Latinos. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lists reducing “births” as one of the top goals of Obama’s “Teen Pregnancy Prevention Initiative.” The language on the CDC’s website makes clear that the program seeks to reduce the rate of both pregnancies and “births” among minorities. Specifically, the CDC says the “purpose of this program is to demonstrate the effectiveness of innovative, multicomponent, communitywide initiatives in reducing rates of teen pregnancy and births in communities with the highest rates, with a focus on reaching

Tax day is here—and some people will pay more this year because of Obamacare. The law´s biggest tax provision—billions of dollars in tax credits to help people cover the cost of their premiums—is already in effect, but doesn´t affect the taxes due on Tuesday. A handful of smaller provisions, mostly affecting wealthy households, will show up for the first time in this year´s filing. Among this year´s changes: a 0.9 percent increase in Medicare taxes and a 3.8 percent surtax on investment income. Both are limited to high-income taxpayers, and both took effect for the first time in the tax season that

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

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual
