EPA chief Jackson resigns
amid transparency investigations

Daily Caller, by Michael Bastasch

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 12/29/2012 6:07:26 AM

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?

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.

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.

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.

San Diego to sue Mayor Filner for

The San Diego City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to file a lawsuit against Mayor Bob Filner to recover any money the city has to pay due to the sexual harassment lawsuit filed by a former top aide to the mayor. The suit will seek to recover any damages ordered by the court, or agreed to as part of a pretrial settlement, arising from the lawsuit filed against the city and Filner by the mayor´s former director of communications, Irene McCormack Jackson. The vote was taken in closed session. "This is part of due process," City Atty. Jan Goldsmith said.

The cruelly misunderstood Anthony Weiner has “no idea” if he’s about to be stabbed by another stiletto heel. “These are people who I thought were friends, people I trusted when I communicated with them,” he told Denis Hamill of The Daily News. “But who knows what they might do now?” Yes, who knows? Free-spirited young women having digital sex with a well-known politician who loves to expose himself and talk raunchy can be so damnably unpredictable and untrustworthy. The delusional Weiner, who has turned shamelessness into performance art, was expecting the sexual equivalent of honor among thieves.

This was not in the script. Two stars of the Bravo television show “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” were indicted Monday on federal fraud charges. Teresa Giudice, 41, and her husband, Giuseppe “Joe” Giudice, 43, were accused of exaggerating their income while applying for loans before their TV show debuted in 2009 — then hiding how well they were doing in a bankruptcy filing after their first season aired. The combustible couple, who live in Montville Township, were charged in a 39-count indictment with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications

The retirees that cities like Detroit are trying to push into Obamacare’s health insurance exchanges could drive up the premiums in the exchanges and swell costs to the federal government, experts say. Detroit, which has filed for bankruptcy, is trying to reduce its liabilities by pushing retirees who are too young for Medicare onto the federal healthcare exchange set up through the Affordable Care Act, the New York Times reported on Sunday. The retirees could then buy their own insurance with help from federal subsidies. Detroit’s move comes as part of its bankruptcy proceedings, but it is not the first city

Former Indiana governor Mitch Daniels, now the president of Purdue University, has impeccable taste in historians. Upon the death of Howard Zinn in 2010, he wrote an e-mail to his advisers about Zinn’s most famous work, A People’s History of the United States. “It is a truly execrable, anti-factual piece of disinformation that misstates American history on every page,” he said. “Can someone assure me that it is not in use anywhere in Indiana? If it is, how do we get rid of it before any more young people are force-fed a totally false version of our history?”

Cluster boxes. If you haven´t heard of them yet, you will soon. They are about to change something basic about American life: the sight of the mail carrier strolling up to the front door to drop off that day´s letters, magazines, bills and advertising fliers. Door-to-door mail delivery appears to be a luxury that the U.S. Postal Service no longer can afford. It´s no secret that the Postal Service is in terrible financial trouble; last year the agency lost $16 billion. No business can afford to go on that way without making dramatic changes.

Many low-income families receive government assistance to help them purchase food and housing. Diapers are another story, a new study suggests.

Mideast: The sequester has "cost jobs," says President Obama, and "gutted investments in education and science and medical research." But somehow he´s earmarked $500 million for Hamas terrorists. Circumventing Congress and with no fanfare, President Obama last week issued an executive order enabling him to send an additional $500 million directly to the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank — much of which you can bet will wind up going to the Iranian-backed Hamas terrorist organization.

I never thought the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case deserved nearly the attention it got. But reasonable people can disagree about that. What strikes me as unconscionable, however, is the way the supposedly objective media have not only sensationalized a tragedy but at times appear to deliberately bend the facts to fit a desired story line. Maybe it started with the use of pictures of a younger Martin or with the sudden embrace of the term "white Hispanic" to describe Zimmerman in order to more easily paint him as a racist.
