(Dec. 28, 2012) — Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency director, Lisa Jackson, has submitted her resignation as that agency’s inspector general probes her use of an email address which used the alias “Richard Windsor.”
After Obama promised “an unprecedented level of openness in government,” in November, Jackson and others in her agency were discovered to have been carrying out government business using email accounts with aliases, a factor which most news reports omitted in their coverage of Jackson’s resignation today.
On December 13, members of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce asked Jackson to “describe fully” “whether conducting business with an alias has in any way affected the transparency of the agency’s activities…” The EPA claims that Jackson’s secondary account “are treated the same” as those received by a recognized government address. The Committee members also asked Jackson, “To your knowledge, are there any other heads of Federal agencies that are assigned an ‘internal’ email address? If yes, which Federal agencies?”
According to Bloomberg Businessweek, Obama’s cabinet officials have “continued to defy open-government rules” by failing to respond to a Freedom of Information Act for their travel expenses within the 20-day period mandated by the Act..
Jackson cited no “particular reason for her departure.” The EPA website shows her still employed as the agency’s administrator, not a “watchdog,” as has been reported by the Associated Press, whose article was disseminated widely on the web.
According to The Daily Caller, Jackson may have used more than one “alias” email account.
As administrator, Jackson’s seven priorities were “Taking Action on Climate Change;” “Improving Air Quality;” “Assuring the Safety of Chemicals;” “Cleaning Up Our Communities;” “Protecting America’s Waters;” “Expanding the Conversation on Environmentalism and and Working for Environmental Justice;” and “Building Strong State and Tribal Partnerships.”
Under her tenure, the EPA had declared carbon dioxide a “pollutant” as defined by the Clean Air Act passed in 1970. Carbon dioxide is defined as “a naturally occurring chemical compound composed of two oxygen atoms covalently bonded to a single carbon atom.” It is produced by humans and used by plants in the process of photosynthesis and crop production. A scientific explanation of the carbon cycle states that “Without the proper functioning of the carbon cycle, every aspect of life could be changed dramatically.”
Jackson had intended to tighten regulations even more in 2011, but the White House reportedly intervened.
The Obama regime has severely restricted the construction of new coal-fired plants by imposing new regulations, and at least 3,500 people lost coal-related jobs in 2011. Despite the strict regulations, “swing states” such as Ohio and Pennsylvania voted for Obama in 2012, although questions with touch-screen voting machines switching votes from Romney to Obama are as yet unanswered.
Some new restrictions were not announced until after Obama’s “election.” Obama stated that Jackson’s EPA has ” taken sensible and important steps to protect the air we breathe and the water we drink, including implementing the first national standard for harmful mercury pollution, taking important action to combat climate change under the Clean Air Act and playing a key role in establishing historic fuel economy standards that will save the average American family thousands of dollars at the pump, while also slashing carbon pollution.” When Obama took office in 2009, the cost of a gallon of gasoline averaged $1.89 and are now $3.25, down from higher prices several weeks ago.
Jackson’s former boss, Barack Hussein Obama, is also accused of using aliases by a law enforcement official in Maricopa County, AZ. “He’s the only American president that has aliases,” Cold Case Posse lead investigator Michael Zullo told an interviewer in September. Obama appears to have been known by the names “Soebarkah,” Barry Soetoro, and “Baraka Obama.”
Atty. Orly Taitz and others have filed numerous lawsuits claiming that Obama is using a stolen Social Security number, forged birth certificates, and a fraudulent Social Security card. Two U.S. attorneys defending him have claimed that whether or not Obama holds a valid Social Security number makes no difference as to his eligibility to hold the office.
Obama reportedly lived in Indonesia at a time when one had to be a citizen of that country to attend any school. One researcher claims that Obama was raised largely in Indonesia but is a “natural born Citizen” by having been born to Malcolm X and JoAnn Newman in New York City on October 28, 1959.
Other questions have been raised about Obama’s background which have not been answered.
