Skip to comments.Fire NRC Chairman Gregory Jaczko

Jaczko has broken promises to Congress, put Americans at risk, and treated the lives of our allies with reckless disregard.
On April 20, 2005, two men appeared before the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works for hearings relating to their appointments as members of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). One of, them, Peter Lyon, presented credentials including three patents, 160 technical publications, and three decades of experience working at Los Alamos National Lab. The other, Gregory Jaczko, had no patents, no publications, and no technical work experience whatsoever.
The contrast in qualifications between Jaczko and Lyon, or between Jaczko and any other person who might reasonably be suggested for NRC membership, was, and remains, comical. Unfortunately, however, the Jaczko appointment was not a case of some joker, through Eddie Murphystyle antics, faking his way into a position of authority (although Jaczko did pretend that his degree in abstract physics that is, secular theology provided him with an education in nuclear engineering). Rather, Jaczko who, since finishing college in 1999, had worked as an anti-nuclear political operative, first for Rep. Ed Markey (D., Mass.) and then for Sen. Harry Reid (D., Nev.), was forced upon the Bush administration by Reid as a condition for approving any other NRC appointments.

Typical activist Democrat; I will tell you now that I will act honorably and then when the time comes I will do exactly what I want and exactly what I suggested I would not.
THESE are the people we must get out of our gov’t.
They are an infestation that will continue to be a destructive force until they are turned out into the private sector where they will wither and die.
As I understand it, this guy heading up the NRC is also responsible for shutting down Yucca Mountain “based on science” when the scientific findings prove that it is the most studied piece of real estate in the US and that the nuclear waste storage facility is as safe as it gets there. But he and Obama shut-down Yucca Mountain (and pretty much the entire nuclear energy industry) with their brazen ignoring of the evidence. But I understand it is coming back and will be presented and then we’ll see just how corrupt this guy is. It’s time for all these corrupt Dem Czars and officials to pack up and leave.
This would be a good checklist item for the next President to clean up.
“Remove ALL Obama czars”
