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 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.

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.

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?

Democrats Go Searching for White Guys
Wall Street Journal, by James Freeman    Original Article

The New York Times reports on a new effort by Democrats to recruit working-class white men. Since this is a group that turns out better in midterm elections than the women, minorities and college kids in the Obama base, the party is desperate to win over more white guys in this fall´s congressional contests. But the Times says Democrats are discouraged to find that "men´s attitudes shaped over generations — through debates over civil rights, anti-Communism, Vietnam, feminism, gun control and dislocations from lost manufacturing jobs and stagnant wages in a global economy — are not easily altered."

Matthew McConaughey completed his journey from rom-com washout to Oscar winner Sunday night. And he made sure to acknowledge God´s role in that trek during his Best Actor acceptance speech for the film Dallas Buyers Club. "First off, I want to thank God because that´s who I look up to," the new Oscar winner said. The assembled actors, directors and industry heavy hitters grew rather quiet, unsure how to react to his overt religious praise. McConaughey, who dropped an alarming amount of weight to play a man suffering from AIDS, reverted to his aw-shucks persona from there. He thanked his

Conservatives frustrated by GOP’s

Prominent Republicans see no evidence that their party’s electoral successes have advanced the cause of limited government and moral governance. “Today, our party’s leaders act like thermometers measuring the temperature of the electorate. We need to be the thermostats and set the temperature,” said Rob McCoy, pastor of Calvary Chapel, a few minutes’ drive from the Reagan presidential library in Simi Valley, Calif. For Republicans like Mr. McCoy, who is running for a state Assembly seat, the national party has racked up decades of compromises that have led to relentless government expansion, ever-increasing spending growth, continually mounting national debt and

As a direct counter to President Obama’s recent emphasis on the gap between rich and poor, the upcoming House Republican budget will focus on welfare reform and recommend a sweeping overhaul of social programs, including Head Start and Medicaid. The push, led by Rep. Paul Ryan, returns the GOP’s attention to a policy front that animated the party in the 1990s and signals Republicans’ desire to expand their pitch to voters ahead of this year’s midterm elections. This new effort comes after the party spent months fixated on combating the federal health-care law and engaged in intraparty squabbles over fiscal

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he

Former Washington Post managing editor Robert Kaiser is retiring at age 70, and he’s very cranky about how conservatives have destroyed government and Washington collegiality. This tells you a lot about what kind of liberal edits and massages the Post every day. Kaiser is moving to New York, and on the front of the Sunday Outlook he described how “Republicans lost their minds” and “Democrats lost their souls.” In essence, both sides are now too conservative for Bob, starting with a debt-limit vote: On Oct. 16, 162 members of Congress, 144 in the House and 18 in the Senate, voted

As John noted below, President Obama spent an hour and a half on the telephone with Vladimir Putin discussing the Russian invasion of Ukraine. What was the conversation like? We can probably get a good sense of it by considering the account of President Bush’s conversations with Putin set forth by Peter Baker in his excellent book about the Bush presidency, Days of Fire. It’s well known that Bush and Putin got on well at first. But when the relationship soured, Bush became exasperated by his talks with the Russian bully. Putin seemed to delight in debating Bush.

Putin Asks to Deploy Troops in Ukraine

Russian President Vladimir Putin moved to officially deploy Russian troops in Ukraine Saturday, defying warnings not to intervene issued a day earlier by his U.S. and other western counterparts. Though a major escalation in the openness of Russia´s commitment, Saturday´s move comes as Russian troops and their local allies have already largely taken control of Crimea, a restive province of Ukraine that belonged to Russia until 1954 and remains predominantly pro-Russian. Heavily armed troops, many from Russia´s Black Sea Fleet, which is based in the Crimean port of Sevastopol, surrounded key facilities across the region

The Brother Barack Obama Doesn´t ´Keep´

The goal of the president’s newest racially divisive effort, “My Brother’s Keeper,” is to set black and Latino male youth apart from white male youth. It centers on recruiting businesses and foundations to donate $200 million over five years towards programs that will benefit young males of color. Apparently, much like Barack Obama’s real brothers, needy boys with little or ‘no color,’ as well women and girls of any color, will have to tough it out on their own. In the Bible Cain responded to God’s question concerning the whereabouts of the brother he had just murdered with “Am I my brother’s keeper?”

In the ceremonies, the Russian Olympic Committee representative called the games the greatest ever and said the world got to see “the New Face of Russia.” This week we learned the new face of Russia looks quite a bit like the old face of Russia – paranoid, belligerent and skillful in exploiting moments of American weakness.

As Democratic officials rely more than ever on the big-money super PACs they once scorned, party strategists and donors are caught in sharp disagreements over how to use the newly influential independent organizations. Tensions are simmering over whether Priorities USA Action and other Democratic groups that can accept unlimited contributions are too focused on the 2016 presidential race and a potential Hillary Rodham Clinton candidacy, even as Democrats face a costly, uphill fight this year to retain a thin Senate majority and gain seats in the House.

SEVASTOPOL, Ukraine — Heightened Russian military activity in Crimea on Friday prompted a stern warning from President Obama and a deepening sense of crisis among the leaders of the new Ukrainian government in Kiev. U.S. officials said Russian troops had entered Crimea, and Obama told reporters Friday evening that he was “deeply concerned by reports of military movements” and that there “will be costs for any military intervention.” Earlier in the day, the new Ukrainian government said that hundreds of soldiers in green camouflage, without insignia but carrying military-style automatic rifles, had taken over two airports in Crimea.

But Apple chief executive Tim Cook has shocked some in the US with an impassioned attack on the single-minded pursuit of profit – and a direct appeal to climate-change deniers not to buy shares in his firm. Eyewitnesses said Cook, who succeeded Steve Jobs as boss of the technology giant in 2011, was visibly angry as he took on a group of right-wing investors during a question-and-answer session at a shareholders’ meeting.

WASHINGTON—Police arrested hundreds of people who strapped themselves to the White House fence on Sunday to protest the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. The protesters were mostly college students who participated in a peaceful march that began at Georgetown University and ended outside the White House. They chanted "climate justice now" and carried signs with slogans such as "don´t tarnish the earth" in an effort to persuade President Barack Obama to reject the pipeline. They say it will worsen global warming. Protesters were passionate but quite orderly. Police were waiting for them with buses and vans to speed the process.
