EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson stepping down after tumultuous term
AP via FoxNews ^ | December 27, 2012

Posted on 12/27/2012 7:45:50 AM PST by US Navy Vet

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.

EPA admin , destroy the country then go crawl under the hole you crawled out of evil cretin , great accomplishment NOT.

Abolish the EPA, FEC ,FCC, IRS, government schools, and the rest of the 1000’s of government agencies and depts Now. All government does is cripple business and destroy our liberties and freedom. All the government should do is military, international issues(dealing with other countries leave us American citizens alone), border control.

She was unarguably bad but were the decisions we note hers or was she simply the implementer? I think we’ll see SSDD no matter who is nominated.

To me this is a symbol that Obama is about to toss the Enviros under the bus.

There are too many Democrats who now covet the additional revenue streams from fracking so they can continue growing the government ever larger and larger.

Since Barry need not worry about any more elections, time for the Sierra Club to meet Mr. Michelin Bus Radial.

Oh I do hoe so. Because only a Dem could do it. They will turn the world against the greens if they have to. And they will have to.

A silver lining.

I have been to fracking confabs here in Pennsylvania that were overrun with your garden variety Democrat politicians. I tell ya, you won’t see as many orgasms on Cinemax after midnight as you did amongst these Democrats thinking about the streams of new revenue headed their way. Obama would have a serious troop revolt on his hands if he tried to take this away from them. Not to mention he now owes the unions bigtime. A few green extremists are expendable.

Having been in the trenches against the greens for many a year, it will do my heart good to see them explode their base over this.

Besides which Obama is desperate to produce an economic uptick that he can use to convince the majority that “Reagan was wrong, Socialism works and is better.”

Somehow I doubt that he wants to be known as the president that opened Americas energy wealth. But he will have it forced upon him.

And it will give me mixed emotions ‘crediting’ him when he is forced into signing the legislation that does it. But I’ll sleep well knowing the hero of the revolution will go down in history for grenading his party.

His ‘legacy’ will be assured. Because the MSM will suddenly extol the wonders of America’s oil wealth once the greater Dem party profits from it.

Oh well, those laws will be in place and a right winger will not be the man that made it happen...what will a good liberal think ?

That’s an interesting theory, but I think Zero would rather destroy business than get new revenue. He WANTS to crash our economy. Nothing he’s done makes sense unless that is the result he’s after.

Too many people are missing what Obama is doing with energy, focusing on the EPA and the environmental radicals, and missing all the rest. You need to remember what Glenn Beck was always saying about Obama, that while the press keeps us focused on the Obama’s right hand, his left is working feverishly behind the scenes to further his socialist agenda. Remember Obama likes to pick the winners and losers in every sector of the economy.

If you think that the Obama administration opposes fracking, pipelines, coal, and refining, you would be wrong. Obama supports all those things, when the companies operating them are Obama crony partners like the Carlyle Group, Peabody Energy and others.

You think that Obama killed the Keystone pipeline because he hates big oil? No, he killed the Keystone because he wants that oil sent to China from the West Coast and there is already a pipeline to do just that, the transCanada pipeline which already goes to Vancouver B.C. and across the border to Whatcom County WA.

You think that Obama opposes coal? Think again, Obama loves Peabody Energy which produces sub-bituminous coal, which it wants to ship to China via new ports (which will be built with our tax dollars) in WA and Oregon with the help of Warren Buffet’s BNSF RR, once again subsidized with our tax dollars.

You think that Obama is opposed to oil refining? Not, if the owner of the refinery AND the pipeline is the Carlyle Group. Obama’s EPA forced SUNOCO out of the refining business in Philadelphia and then facilitated the take over of the refinery by the Carlyle Group, then lifted all the EPA regulations for Carlyle to operate the same refinery and smoothed the way to refurbish an old pipeline to bring the oil from the Keystone pipeline to Philadelphia.

The big point here is that Carlyle is about 25% owned by state pension funds of both NY and CA. So, this is another example of the unions owning a company in another sector of the economy. Carlyle is also invested in a RR which owns the track rights to carry the Peabody coal to ports in Oregon.

Then Obama uses the unions to push these projects as though they are standing up for free enterprise and union jobs, against the environmental lobby. So, the war on fossil fuel becomes the war for Obama’s crony partners, Peabody, BNSF, Carlyle and other companies which are being subsidized with our tax dollars.

I totally agree with your post.

My point is that his base does not see that. They see Black Supergreen, hero of all that is liberal, right and just.

And when his mask comes off, his base fragments and his power evaporates.

I submit as Exhibit A our neighbor to the north, Canada.
A vastly more liberal country with a huge social safety net compared to ours. Yet even the most liberal governments they’ve had over the past couple of decades did not make any serious attempt to shut down the Alberta oil sands.

Gotta have revenue to pay for expensive government benefits.
It has become the land of the eternally frustrated greenie.

Frustrated...yup. In my old life I was Senior Ed for www.off-road.com. The ALF literally photographed me at an event and made a ‘wanted poster they distributed to their troops. They put my face with my then-boss’s address. I in AZ and he in HI. They were extremely frustrated at their inability to find me. Bitched a storm on the old usenet trying to find me too.

We got lots of ink mocking the crap out of them for it. Like the Cheezeburger cat, I haZZed a happy ;)

Greenies are extremely incompetent without a hand to guide them.

You would think that the base would fragment, but that is not what happens at all. What happens is the base re-interprets Obama’s conflicting agenda as working toward the overall goal of national socialism. So, it’s alright for Obama to partner with corporations and funnel tax dollars to favored corporations as long as those corporations agree to support the Obama socialist agenda, like Warren Buffet and his RRs and Jeffrey Imelt at GE.

In my county, where Obama wants to build one of his coal ports, the left has used the OWS movement to blame the corporations for the coal terminal, instead of the Democrat politicians and union supporters, throwing the blame on the Republicans, who have foolishly supported the Obama crony project as a source of union jobs, despite all the negative impacts and tax dollars that will be sunk into the project.

The only thing we can do is look to history. And history always shows this kind of crap to collapse from within. This time will be no different. Yes, it sucks as events play out. Yes it hurts tens of millions. But it’s the way of the world. People need to feel a LOT of pain of their own ox being gored. And everyone has a pain threshold. Once it’s hit, the fun begins.

Obama PO’d a lot of OWS wannabees. Many, though not enough stayed home.. And it ain’t getting better for them. Point to ponder.

Another thing to consider.

When O turns on the greenies, lots of them lose funding and PR since it will no longer be cool to be a greenie or associated with something in Obama’s way. These people will be either unemployed and pissed or put in other ‘not’ green jobs.

The cultist followers will see their leadership 180ing on everything they believed in and rebel. Not all of them are devoted. Most like the bennies and eco-hippy chicks and guaranteed free sex. That’s the real reason they are in it. It’s not that they believe the AGW crap. It just get them some ‘free stuff’.

And when the oil money starts getting redistributed, you best believe they will embrace that new Porsche lifestyle.

That the political Right wanted all along.

Less need to vote dem when the Right will NEVER shut off the oil.

But on return to power, we rearrange the benefit structure..

No, the OWS supporters did not stay home and they were not mad at Obama. They held what they called “Democracy Schools” which educated voters to blame the corporations and not the Democrats who were forming partnerships with the corporations. On the West Coast, the OWS was partnered with the Black Block and the ILWU (International Longshoremen’s Union), two groups which are very tightly tied to Obama. Obama’s ties to the ILWU go back to Hawaii and Frank Marshall Davis.

Don’t be fooled, the OWS was Obama’s organization from the get go.

Of course it was.

However, I spoke with more than a few OWS types that were disgusted with him and didn’t. And I doubt they were the only ones in the country.

I also troll a few lib boards and some were quite vocal in their opposition believing he already used them and sold them out. Then they were banned as expected.

You need to realize that the Dem party is a marriage of convenience and benefit. When the benefit becomes inconvineint, the marriage dissolves. And it is impossible to keep all these parties, who normally hate each other ALL happy.

Gays and muslims will not coexist when one demands their ‘rights’ within the party. Greens and the power of the DNC will not coexist when the DNC says ‘STFU, we are doing it’.
Blacks and mexicans are killing each other already. They will not give up LaRaza for Jessie and Al’s designs for a Black Utopia.

It CANNOT hold together. It only does because they have nowhere else to go.

Just like many on the right stupidly feel about the GOP.

You mis-understand the environmental movement. Sure there are some true believers among them, but the real goal has nothing to do with saving the environment or even global warming. The real goal of the environmental movement is control, social engineering and redistribution.

The elitist lefties see the rural areas of this countries as colonies to be exploited and managed to the benefit of the urban dwellers. My county in WA is a perfect example of this mind set. Here, the lefty greens have enacted “storm water” regulations which make a farmers pile of manure more onerous than a giant coal pile. They have required down zoning of land between an international freeway and the RR to RU10 because they claim that they want to preserve the rural quality of the area, yet they proposed turning agricultural bottom land into a wind farm. Basically, the left supports any use of rural land that does not support or encourage a rural life style, mining, rail roads, wind farms (to produce power for cities), anything but farming, stores, or single family homes.

Eva, google my name and ‘environmentalism/earth-first/Enter Stage Right/Envirolink/It’s not easy being green’ I have been doing this since 1996. I understand the greenies better than most people on the right or the left. Because I have gone nose to nose with them in the field and in official meetings. I have had Sierra Legal Defense Fund on my phone with threat after empty threat. I have, in the past, had several conversations with the former head of/now anti Greenpeace regarding their motivations.

I grew up in an area devastated by green laws and regulations whose industry was destroyed.

Trust me when I tell you, I KNOW what I’m talking about because I lived it.

Believe me I feel your frustration. One of the men I worked with Rick Sieman, the long-time editor for Dirt Bike magazine and a strong fighter in the war against Earth First and the Sierra Club hung up his hat and moved to Mexico at one point after a pathetic court case. He recognized that we all were no longer in the America we loved.

But his frustration also came from a public that by and large refuses to give a tinkers damn. They say ‘oh well’ find a new activity/job/whatever and go on with their life.

But the greenies follow. Always. and now they are so pervasive that they have power in all aspects of our lives. And it’s that power, given to them primarily be their communistic joining with the Left that will be unceremoniously stripped when they, like all other useful idiots, become a hindrance to the ever-shifting surface agenda of the left.

Surface agenda meaning the agenda of the moment, not the overall quest for power and control.

It’s worse in Whatcom County, WA than just not caring when the Greens go after rural rights. Some of the Republicans in my county are actually helping the appointed regulators enact laws that will negatively impact private property owners and help Goldman Sachs build a coal terminal because the unions want the coal terminal and they have convinced the Republicans that if they give them the coal terminal that the unions will vote Republican….and the stupid Republicans believed them. Now that the election is over, the Republicans just think that it will take longer than one election to show the results of their support.

The scenario you just gave is the exact parallel of what we just witnesses across the political right with Romney. They knowingly and willingly Backed a party whose candidate stood across the fence from everything they ‘claim’ to believe in. The ‘stupid Republicans’ in this case believed that an abortion supporting gun grabber who wrote the framework to Obamacare was a solution to Bronco-Bama and that it would just take longer than one election for his conservationism to shine through and the world be saved.

But in the current case, most will not admit what an asinine idea it was to begin with and still actively fight those of us who saw it for what it was. Because 1: they refuse to admit their mistake, or 2: because they really think it was a good idea to begin with.

And both explain the mess we are in and why.
