EPA Email Scandal Is Worse
Than Originally Thought

Breitbart's Big Government, by George Landrith & Peter Roff

Original Article

Posted By:vastrightwingconspirator, 1/27/2013 9:59:49 PM

President Barack Obama and, for that matter, most of America seem woefully ignorant about a scandal unfolding at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. As hard as it is to believe, outgoing Administrator Lisa Jackson actually appears to have had agency personnel create a fictitious employee by the name of “Richard Windsor” so that Jackson could appropriate the Windsor’s email address for her own purposes. We’re not talking about some alias to be used for personal correspondence but a totally false identity in whose name official business was allegedly conducted created specifically to

I am not suprised. Obama zelot appointees operate on "the ends justify the means" principle. To them the only crime is getting caught. This administration is lawless.

i´m kind of surprised they would have to set up a fake e-mail account to hide any alleged corruption. The Republicans aren´t going to investigate anything anyway and, since the corrupt media is the propaganda arm of the marxist party they have nothing to fear from them either.

Should invaldate everything done by the EPA that needed Lisa Jackson´s signature, input, or consultation.

Most transparent administration, huh?

Republicans should be asking "what´s up with all the secrets, the fake identities, the cover-up"?

absolutely right, #2 and ain´t that a cryin´ shame. most of the time i can hardly bear to read this kind of article but end up doing so and then feeling totally frustrated and disheartened. i was so hopeful when romney ran that we could have some fresh(er) air breathed into washington and much of our former wonderful country. now, i feel I´m just watching it die in front of my very eyes.

This appears to be possibly a scandal that could lead to criminal charges, but this too will pass. We the people are no longer represented in Washington by the House or Senate. The DOJ is a corrupt joke, selectively enforcing the law against only those who appear to be a threat to their and Obama´s agendas.

Since ´Richard Windsor´ was the one that conducted official EPA business as the head of the EPA, all of Lisa Jackson´s current and future pay and benefits should be placed in an escrow account which only Richard Windsor (and not Lisa Jackson) can touch. Ms Jackson should then be prosecuted for violation of acts regarding FOIA and government documentation.

There´s no reason for them to worry about this scandal. The conservative media is far too interested in Obama´s remarks about Hillary on 69 minutes.

Sometimes I think we have a ring through our nose and the liberal press points us in whatever way they want us to look.

I´ll bet she got a golden parachute retirement package on her way out the door with a signed non disclosure statement so she´ll never be able to discuss it,write a book or whatever.

When you´re a soldier in the war on climate change,the cause trumps anything you did to further the cause. She probably broke dozens of laws if you broke them all down.But like I´ve been saying for 4 years,Obama couldn´t care less about the rule of law and she´ll skip town going her merry way,living off the tax payers.

Obama just said the other day people need to be held accountable for their actions. This excludes her of course.

the person taking her place could be just as bad. This ugy has a history of being an animal nut so he could use them as an excuse to kill pollution.

#4, yep. I agree, it is hard to try and remain positive when everyday you are bombarded with stories that affirm what you are feeling. To watch your beloved country on this downward spiral is demoralizing. The worst part is the hopelessness that comes with knowing that not only is this the most lawless administration but no one has the courage to hold them accountable.

I agree with #2 and #16. This is not a one of a kind happening. My guess, and I´ll wager a pretty good one, is that this kind of shananigan is going on in other of the Obama administration.
To see if Richard Windsor is collecting, I suggest that look for a SSN for him, Federal Income Tax returns, registered autos, travel tickets and hotel,resort and cruise line reservations. A parking assignment at EPA and an facitlity entry ID and badge. Was there ever a security check on "it" and what was his clearance level????
Again, my wager is that there are many other "Richard Windsor" types in the administration save orgs like CIA,NSA,FBI,CID et alia. In their cases, it is a real person who is using an alias as a need for his class of work.

The problem with a story like this is that the whistleblower is unknown, and as such, no one is going to investigate this. Even if it comes up to an administraton official, they will deny that ´Richard Windson´ exists. Or that any such thing could/would happen the this admisistration. After all, this is the most transparant administration in the history of the U.S./s

Agree with all the posts, but with the slight objection that it isn´t the House and Senate it is the Parties that are representing their own interests and not ours. The House and Senate stand ready, willing, and able under the Constitution to do their duty, but corruption by the Parties have caused us all harm.

I have said already million times, this is not the cabal of ideologues, but cabal of thugs.
They seized the power to run this country like mafia runs businesses. The only thing that prevents them to do so is the remains of democracy. Otherwise the lawlessness would reach the levels of china/russia/cuba/venezuela or some african dictatorship.
But with obozo´s "Justice" department and with the help of alphabet agencies we are not that far from there.

Oh come on. Do you really think these Marxists are going to reveal anything or obey the law? The Executive Branch is a communist party operation, period. They are dismantling the representative republic and will have completely dismantled by 2014. The House and Senate are irrelevant because they´ve chosen to be. The Fourth Estate is 98 percent Marxist. The courts are 51% tyranny based so of course they all have fake e-mails and so what if they get caught. They´ll make up new ones, force the outing of the whistleblower whose life will soon be destroyed. Have you read Rules for Radicals? Why does news like this surprise. Expect this and much, much worse every single day.

Obama ‘ShamWow’ speech

Sarah Palin is keeping up the infomercial peddler charge against President Barack Obama, criticizing his “ShamWow” speech in Boston and accusing him of lying to the American people. (Snip) “For starters we anticipated a presidential apology for lying to Americans repeatedly when he promised things like, ‘If you like your current health care plan, you can keep it.’ Make no mistake, he knew he was lying when he said that,” Palin wrote. “Was remorse and sympathy shown for Americans who now can’t afford health insurance thanks to Obamacare? Nope. … Obama didn’t lie to you when he said, ‘if you

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said she would be "disappointed" in the American electorate if Hillary Clinton becomes a serious candidate for president in 2016. The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee argued Clinton would not be right for the role as commander in chief after four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, died last year in a terrorist attack against a U.S. consulate in Benghazi. (Snip) She said "anyone who would just throw away 200 years of military ethos and leave our men behind to be murdered" should "never be considered as a commander in chief."

Americans who are fed up with Obamacare won a victory yesterday. The House voted to defund Obamacare while still funding the federal government to avoid a “devastating” shutdown. (I shall not digress, but it’s beyond distressing to hear liberals try to convince Americans that any government slowdown is comparable to “terrorism.”) (Snip) I want no pity. I need no empathy. But use me as a barometer. Over the years, the leftwing media has falsely and irrationally accused me of everything from faking a pregnancy to abetting murder. They lie. Deal with it.

It was an overcast, albeit relatively mild August day by Washington D.C. standards, fifty years ago today, as I joined the thousands walking along Constitution Avenue toward the Lincoln Memorial. Many of those in the crowd who had traveled vast distances by busses and cars from all over the nation, but in particular the deep South, had a look of apprehension bordering on fear, not knowing what to expect from the police and those vehemently opposed to unfettered civil rights. Despite the trepidation and regardless of skin color, nationality or faith all were determined to compel the nation to listen

Sarah Palin joined Eric Bolling on Fox News this morning to take a mini-victory lap over some Democrats suddenly embracing the idea she put forth years ago over health care “death panels.” Palin felt somewhat vindicated, but didn’t want to “condone them… for trying to jump off the Obama train wreck.” She told Bolling that rationing was in the health care law from the beginning, and the Democrats who didn’t notice it until now did not want to look like “buffoons.” (Snip) Palin proudly declared her allegiance to Team Rand, hitting Christie for his “schtick” of “set-up situations”

Others to include: obviously her husband, Todd; and Franklin Graham, Christian evangelist; Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Kansas Gov.

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

All 17 Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have called on Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to end the “partisan” investigation into the Benghazi attack “and begin focusing instead on conducting responsible oversight to implement constructive reforms.” The Dems, led by ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), charged that the probe “has been characterized by wild and unsubstantiated political accusations that turn out to be completely inaccurate.” They proceeded to outline those instances in the five-page letter. “Continuing this reckless pattern of launching wholly unfounded accusations on national television — and racking up more and more Pinocchios in the process —

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

Their target is the GOP, but they are not angry liberals bent on destroying it. They are reform-minded Republican leaders intent on strengthening it. These Republicans are applying conservative principles to 21st-century challenges, focused on middle-class concerns like lowering costs and improving access to college, modernizing health care and reforming the tax code. They aim to broaden prosperity´s reach through markets and merit, not government and corporate cronyism. They´re also concentrating on helping the poor by changing Washington´s dizzying assortment of antipoverty programs to emphasize work and make the safety net more effective and sustainable. The reformers´ success in providing

One is a world leader who has been praised for his humility and outlook on the world. The other is an American president, once the international superstar of the political stage. So it is no surprise that President Barack Obama has travelled to the Vatican in Rome possibly to get some tips from the popular Pope Francis who now even has own weekly glossy magazine dedicated to him. As he sat down with the Pontiff at the Vatican this morning, Obama called himself a ´great admirer´ of the pope. Their historic first meeting comes as Obama´s administration and the church

Usually the type of Republicans MSNBC hosts invite on their shows are either craven RINO types who can be depended upon to trash talk fellow Republicans, or the more inarticulate, dimmer bulbs in the party who fail to communicate conservative positions effectively. MSNBC host Chris Hayes had an entirely different type of animal on his hands with PA Americans For Prosperity Director, Jennifer Stefano. In fact, he´s probably still licking his wounds after the nasty confrontation he had with her, Wednesday night in a debate over the latest ObamaCare delay. He got off on the wrong foot by introducing Stefano

Joe Newby at The Washington Examiner has found a real doozy of a “comedian.” Her name is Laura Levites – with obviously no connection to the priests of the Old Testament. (She´s an atheist with a fondness for Ricky Gervais.) "I would personally like to castrate every Male Conservative Christian so that they have NO reproductive rights," she wrote on Twitter, using the hashtag "#HobbyLobby." She certainly knows how to draw attention to herself. Newby said that’s not all. She also expressed her hatred of Christians in a tweet calling conservative Christians "******bags," claiming they are "really trying" her patience.

President Obama marveled at the sheer size of the Colosseum during a private sightseeing tour Thursday night in Rome. "This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums," Obama told reporters, noting the size exceeded Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum was home to gladiator battles and animal hunts during the Roman Empire. Obama walked along a platform running through the center of the
