EPA Administrator Lisa
Jackson stepping down after
tumultuous term

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/27/2012 10:36:27 AM

The Obama administration´s chief environmental watchdog, EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson, is stepping down after a nearly four-year tenure marked by high-profile brawls over global warming pollution, the Keystone XL oil pipeline, new controls on coal-fired plants and several other hot-button issues that affect the nation´s economy and people´s health. Jackson, the agency´s first black administrator, constantly found herself caught between administration pledges to solve controversial environmental problems and steady resistance from Republicans and industrial groups who complained that the agency´s rules destroyed jobs and made it harder for American companies to compete internationally.

Awwww. Poor baby! Whassa´ matter Lisa? Couldn´t ´skyrocket electricity prices´ fast enough for your overseer? Couldn´t get a handle on marketing imaginary Gore-bull warming?

The EPA needs to be stripped of more than just leadership - it´s authority needs to be mitigated back to 1970 levels.

I believe she is the same Lisa Jackson who is being scrutinized for using a personal G-mail account to conduct EPA business. That is, she was using the account as a way of keeping her department´s work a secret and out of the public record (i.e. no FOIA scrutiny).

I´d say good riddance, but her ideology made her blind to the legal sands upon which the big new rulings are based. Some of those rules will be taken to court and the court will send them back to be rewritten. After the second case the courts will see the pattern and their will be presumption that all need to be rewritten. The Cross State Pollution rule is demanding that TX reduce emissions by up to 70% because a single sensor 3 states away blipped upward. Oh, and that law only applies to the Eastern half of the country. CA doesn´t need to worry about their plumes that clearly cross several states to the east.

Actually, she found herself caught between telling the truth and constantly offering perjured testimony, and it would appear that she chose the latter.

Why else was she maintaining a secret e-mail account under an alias?

Did she refuse to respond to lawful subpoenas?

Will she ever answer questions about the contents of her e-mails sent and received under an alias? I doubt it.

Not to give her a pass, but ...
these issues are going to go on and to continue the record of becoming ever worse so long as we smile at the legal fiction of ´stroke of a pen, law of the land´.
Find, please, the Constitutional support for this idiot notion that regulations, issued by unelected -- and obviously unaccountable -- bureaucrats are as much a Law as something passed by the bicameral legislative body and agreed to by the chief executive. I don´t see it anywhere. Because such authority is nowhere explicitly granted.
But then, there is likewise zero support for there to even be a federal EPA (or several other departments also).
Why shouldn´t she act as if she´s above the law? Simple observation would confirm that belief.
Prove me wrong.

Well, this is interesting (via Weasel Zippers): “I have to note that today we have replaced all of the jobs lost under the Bush economic policies and recession that that took us into,” Pelosi told reporters on Capitol Hill. “It’s taken this long to build back from that.” This is interesting.

“Hooray, hooray”! they said in print. 192,000 jobs were created last month according to the Department of Labor’s somewhat flawed mathematics that the media is eager to ignore. Because hidden inside that job gain is another disheartening sign for the workforce: the number of workers who could only find part-time jobs rose by 225,000. Leading the field in job creation, not surprisingly, was education and health services with 34,000 jobs—thank you Obamacare-- the retail trade with about 22,000 jobs—thank you Obamacare-- and temporary workers with 28,500 jobs —thank you Obamacare.

Democratic members of Congress and the Obama administration have extensive ties to Comcast and Time-Warner, the two cable giants currently awaiting approval from the Federal Communications Commission on a $45 billion merger.

Krone moved from Comcast to Reid’s office in 2011 under ethically questionable circumstances, TalkingPointsMemo reported at the time: Majority Leader Harry Reid’s chief of staff, David Krone, left a highly lucrative gig at Comcast before working for the Senator.

In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000.
