Government employees abusing their power? – Updated

As the leftards are telling us we are all paranoid for thinking government would ever treat us like serfs should we lose the ability to fight back, take a look at the w the EPA has been up to:

Lisa Jackson’s forthcoming departure from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is a major victory for transparency and accountability in Washington.

After years of whispers that EPA officials frequently used private email addresses, fake names and coded messages to circumvent the Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA, Jackson admitted recently to using “Richard Windsor” as her chosen nom de plume on a government email account.

That was her choice because it reminded her of a much-beloved family pet, she claimed. (At least she didn’t ask how anybody could suspect a puppy lover like her of any wrongdoing.) The EPA inspector general opened an investigation into the matter because it is against federal law to use nonofficial or secret email addresses to conduct official business.

The EPA IG could hardly do otherwise. The use of private or secret emails enables high government muckety-mucks like Jackson to hide things about which they don’t want the rest of us to know. But we don’t need an investigation to know officials have been hiding bad things within the EPA for a very long time.

A bunch of unelected political partisans using fake e-mails to hide what they are doing because they know that what they are doing isn’t just illegal but criminal? And at the EPA, the organization working hardest to push the Obama energy agenda and to cripple our economy by pushing crappy & costly green energy non-solutions, of all places!

Don’t expect to hear any of this in the LSM. In fact if you do, they will make it look like it was a witch-hunt or as if nothing bad was done. After all, it is becoming quite obvious that the left really thinks laws are for everyone else to follow and not them. Shit like this is why the 2nd amendment was added to the constitution. Where are the god damned trials? This is criminal.

UPDATE: Looks like Mrs. Jackson is leaving the EPA to avoid an investigation:
What we now know is that Arvin Ganesan, EPA associate administrator for congressional and intergovernmental affairs, confirmed to six interested House members on Dec. 12 that Jackson did indeed use the name “Richard Windsor” in secret email exchanges on a private account.

So what was communicated in these emails?

The Competitive Enterprise Institute, which has filed a lawsuit demanding their release, believes they “relate to the war on coal Jackson was orchestrating on behalf of President Obama outside the appropriate democratic process.”

Maybe it’s a coincidence that Jackson, who attended Tulane University on a scholarship provided by Shell Oil, resigned only days after the Justice Department agreed to hand over 12,000 emails from Jackson’s “Richard Windsor” account. But it looks like she’s attempting to dodge an uncomfortable investigation.

As if we needed to doubt the Obama agenda to destroy fossil fuel to their failed & expensive green initiative. An initiative that is purely political and intended to make their buddies stinking rich off tax payer subsidies. Now we know Jackson was communicating with the WH, in secret, to do this. She should be prosecuted and the WH investigated. The most ethical administration ever should be exposed for the manipulative and evil band of Chicago gangsters they are.

High energy prices are “the” policy?

Well, so says this NR post, which makes the case that the Obama WH has purposefully engaged in an agenda to cause higher energy prices when it failed to get “Cap & Tax” forced through congress to push its “green” energy agenda:

A new report from the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform details a disturbing “pattern of evidence” indicating that not only are the Obama administration’s energy policies responsible for higher oil and gas prices, but that the administration’s energy policy, in fact, is higher gas prices.

The report’s findings are the result of an extensive committee review of public records, policy analysis, statements and e-mails from administration officials, and reveal “a pattern of actions [that] shows the Administration is, in fact, pursuing an agenda to raise the price Americans pay for energy,” according to a copy of the report obtained by National Review Online.

“What President Obama failed to accomplish through the so-called ‘cap and trade’ program, his administration is attempting to accomplish through regulatory roadblocks, energy tax increases, and other targeted efforts to prohibit development of domestic energy resources,” the report concludes.

Energy prices are currently artificially high, despite the fact that we are still in a recession that the Obama administrations seems to be doing its best to drag on as long as possible, and while the WH and the democrats have made a concerted effort to blame everyone but themselves, this House committee points out that the WH itself has obviously been creating the artificial shortage to drive up prices. Pretty ugly stuff:

According to the report, the administration’s “concerted campaign” to keep energy prices high extends “across government agencies” and constitutes a complete disregard for governmental transparency, much less the pocketbooks of all of those affected by the increased cost of energy. “An effort to intentionally raise the costs of traditional energy sources is a dangerous strategy that will harm economic recovery and job growth,” the report asserts. “If past statements of key administration officials are indeed reflections of the policies they are pursuing, this strategy is playing a quiet but significant role in the higher energy prices Americans are currently paying.”

Its obvious that as long as our energy policy is to make it as hard as possible to get real energy of any kind to push this green mendacity the left hopes will make so many of them rich, that the prices of energy will stay high. The next time you hear one of the scumbags tell you how the oil companies or the traders are screwing us, remember that it is the policy to prevent us from getting our own resources that’s doing the most to push prices up. At this point I think the WH even feels their aids in the MSM will deflect the blame with enough effect to avoid hurting them at the polls in the next election, which in terms of new energy generation is very close, because they seem unwilling to really do more than talk.

The next time you pay an arm and a leg at the pump, or when you sign a new heating oil contract that makes you feel like you are yanking out a kidney with a butter knife, remember why this stuff is really so expensive.
