Hilarious: Identity Fiddling Ex-EPA Chief Demands More Transparency

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

h/t John, Daily Caller – Lisa Jackson, who may have broken federal law by using a fake email alias during her tenure as EPA chief, has demanded more EPA transparency.

Apple’s Lisa Jackson says the EPA hasn’t changed, leadership has changed

Apple’s Vice President Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives Lisa Jackson has a lot to say about the Environmental Protection Agency. She served as the administrator of the EPA during Obama’s first term, and she now thinks Donald Trump’s administration is causing a great threat to the agency.

“The Environmental Protection Agency is, to me, an extension of the Department of Defense,” she said. “It protects something really important in this country, which is a huge competitive advantage. We have clean air to breathe, water to drink and land to develop and build on.”

“And I just have to say the EPA hasn’t changed. There’s a leadership change, which is beyond politics in my mind. The EPA has been run by Democrats, by Republicans, but has never, in its history that is 40+ years old, been run by someone who seems to be determined to do the one thing that could destroy its credibility, which is not making it transparent.”

Lisa Jackson stepped down from her role as EPA chief in 2012, in the middle of the “Richard Windsor” scandal, when it was discovered she was using the alias Richard Windsor in some EPA email correspondence. Lisa Jackson, who now works for Apple Computers, denies that she used the alias to try to circumvent Federal record keeping laws.

So now I have another significant reason to despise Apple Computer (and the camels they rode into town on.)
What Apple has done to the liveability in Silicon Valley with their delusions of grandeur, is beyond belief.
I can’t drive anywhere in the regions around my house without getting perpetually trapped in a road digging continuum of disruption where someone is digging up every road in the neighborhood for the sole benefit of Apple Computer.
There is a major Very High Voltage PG&E transmission line, that runs right along the front of Apple’s new Space Ship building complex on the Wolfe road / Arques Avenue corner; and it completely destroys the aesthetics of that building.
There can be little doubt that once Apple completes that Space Age Taj Mahal, they will be agitating to get that entire transmission line system removed. I keep meaning to ask PG&E what the Voltage is, but I would guess it is at least 100 kV.

“It was the most opaque administration in history.”
The Obama adminstration was opague because they had a lot of crimes and corruption to hide. They are now coming under scrutiny by various agencies of the federal goverment and Congress. Obama criminals thought they got away with their crimes, but not so fast!
It turns out the Obama adminstrtion was using the U.S intellgence agencies to survail Trump before and after he was elected. Trump was right, these low-life, dangerous politicians *were* “wiretapping” Trump for political purposes. Turning the power of the State against the oppostion political party. That’s how dictators operate.
Fortunately, Trump is not a crook. Obama and his cronies cannot say the same thing.
We want justice! We want the Obama administration to be held accountable.
It’s going to get real interesting in the future as the focus is placed on the Obama administration and it’s activities..
Former FBI Director,James Comey lied uder oath to Congress. Bill and Hillary took millions of dollars from the Russsians and many other nations, in a pay for play shakedown, using their position of power for financial gain.
This may really get messy for the Obama adminstration. It looks like they were involved in a huge deception, that is now slowly coming to light.
The Attorney General of the United States should get busy going after these people, whether thei name is Joe Smo, or Hillary Clinton, or Barack Obama. We want blind justice.

It is not “slowly coming to light”, rather it has been obvious for quite a long time. However, the party in question is extremely facile and easily able to avoid prosecution. Since the government itself refuses to see the problems, I am not sure if any amount of evidence can’t be ignored for those they want to protect.
Here we have damning evidence of felony level criminality for many of the outgoing administration and not a whisper from Justice or the media about actually prosecuting it. While at the same time, wild unsupported accusations and fevered imaginings of the current administrations supposed offenses is obviously illegally leaked and raved about by both the media congress and justice, and impeachment is a constant (and very real) threat.

Trump is a crony. He pretty much admitted that he used his influence in the government for his own private gain. And I think you should be careful with words like “we”. I don’t think you are speaking on the behalf of hundreds of millions of Americans. If you claim so, you are no better than the climate alarmists. Using the “we”-word is the classic trick populists and dictators have used for thousands of years, and everytime i’m seeing that i’m just “oh, here we go again…”.
I’m a skeptic too, but I have noticed that for some reason, many, more fanatical skeptics, like to bash Obama for everything while at the same time praising Trump and ignoring any negatives about him. For example if they see a negative news story about Trump, they are instantly going: “that must be a lie, because Trump is perfect!”. “Withdrawing from the Paris agreement is a good thing, therefore everything that Trump does is a good thing”. They seem to have this black and white worldview, which is the same thing liberals have (“everything that Obama does is a good thing, everything that Trump does is a bad thing”).
We truly live in a polarized world. Instead of discussing these issues like civilized people, both sides just yell at each other and accuse the other side of corruption and deceit, while at the same viewing themselves as enlightened and wise. Extremely dangerous, I think. After all, Hitler and the communists didn’t commit all those atrocities because they viewed themselves as evil. They did them because they viewed themselves as good. Their enemies were the evil ones.

fredar, all big businesses try to use government for their own private gain. That’s why they hire lobbyists. I assume you have heard of them. That’s not the fault of big business; it’s the fault of our current government system. If your competitor donates to politicians or lobbies Congress to get special deals or tax breaks, you have do do the same if you want to stay in business.
There was nothing illegal in the ‘cronyism’ Trump engaged in, as far as we know. So I can’t blame Trump for engaging in the process that the government created. I can, however, lay some blame on the Clintons. They helped expand the government cronyism we see today with their “pay to play” schemes. If you donated to their campaign, paid them exorbitant speaking fees, or donated to their foundation, you got greater access to them and a better chance of preferential treatment. For example, the sale of American uranium assets to Russia was denied until millions were donated to the Clinton Foundation. Then, the sale miraculously and quickly got all the permissions it needed from Hillary’s State Department.
The key to fixing private-sector cronyism is fixing the government. Fixing government cronyism, however, is much more difficult and requires the election of honest people. The fact that “honest politician” is an oxymoron to most people shows how difficult it is. With all his problems, Donald Trump at least admits he donated to Democrat politicians in New York to get favorable treatment for his enterprises. I’m not sure he even had a choice if he wanted to do business in that state. Ask Bill and Hillary if they ever gave out favors based on donations or speaking fees. They have and will continue to deny it. Who is being more honest?

Apple (and other organizations) take your money, then turn around and donate it to ultra-left causes, of all flavors. I suppose it’s a form of buying “protection”, but how do you justify paying good money to someone who then uses it against you?

There was a scandal a few years ago in Germany, in which it became known that Apple employees had to make sects rituals. Morning common songs and attunements to customers belonged to it. Also employees were monitored all day with cameras, which is forbidden by German law. This caused me to stop buying Apple devices. The working conditions at Samsung are synonymous not the yellow of the egg, but still miles better than with Apple. In addition, Apple devices are simply too expensive for the performance offered. Since the name must be purchased, similar to the automobile sector Porsche or Mercedes.

re: “What is wrong with Apple that they would hire someone like Lisa Jackson?” LL
I can think of three reasons:
1) Apple is run by Liberals and Liberals virtue signal constantly. Hiring a Batshit Crazy environmentalist is a high order virtue signal.
2) The chief executive of Apple is an emotional girly man (He was teary eyed talking about the late Steve Jobs during the Apple Event last week.) and queer as a three dollar bill so he can be expected to make less than rational decisions. Up until the crazies took over the control of the Psychiatric area of medicine in the 1970s being homosexual was considered a mental disease, individuals were committed for being queer.
3) Al Gore is a member of the Apple Board. Nuff said.
As long as Apple keeps making money hand over fist there is little to control its executives’ mistakes.

Same here, I have an old Linux desktop and I bought a high end Macbook a year ago. I bought it at eBay almost new (only 5 battery cycles), for a very reasonable price. The price they should be asking for IMHO. I am happy with it, very fast, very light, and it works wonderfully.
I installed windows in dual boot mode, because there are some programs that only can be run under windows. For the rest I prefer MacOS, which, by the way, is UNIX underneath. Linux is also based on UNIX, as you may know. There are tutorials to install and dual boot linux on a mac. You can search the web and youtube for examples. I have done some reading and there are people saying that they have triple boot (MacOS, Windows and Ubuntu 16.04) I do not see the point, though. since you can install linux programs on a mac.

Sorry, I misunderstood your question. If your old laptop has a free USB port you can create a bootable Ubuntu USB stick. Here are the instructions:
I tried that and it works, I have my own Ubuntu USB stick and I can run Ubuntu on any PC, but with limited functionality, you can browse the web, use open office and such, but you cannot install (almost) any program. Once you are running ubuntu from the USB stick, there is an option to install Ubuntu on the hard drive of your computer. Please notice that the old Operating System and all the data in your old laptop will be erased. So, back up first.

“Democrats keep using that word.”
When George Orwell wrote Nineteen Eighty Four he intended it as a warning and not as a manual. His word “newspeak” sums up what is happening. There are currently many examples of words being used to direct and control thought.
Climate Change is one such expression. The alarmists use it to mean man-made climate change so when someone agrees that climate change is happening it means different things to different people.
ANTIFA is another. It is a contraction of “anti fascist” but a more Fascist organisation would be difficult to find. They even wear black shirts just like Mussolin’s Black Shirts.

b :easily detected or seen through
c :readily understood
d :characterized by visibility or accessibility of information especially concerning business practices.

“The Environmental Protection Agency is, to me, an extension of the Department of Defense…”
I guess that’s why the EPA needed to spend …
‘… $2.1 million purchasing guns and ammo up to 300MM – the majority of these expenditures were on weapons “up to 30MM” ($1.73 million) …
… other checkbook entries included body armor, camouflage and deceptive equipment, unmanned aircraft, night vision, radar equipment, tactical sets, kits, and outfits, transport vehicles passenger and troop, and $6.6 million in joint “policing” projects with Homeland Security. EPA also purchased shotgun ammunition, Bushmaster rifles, mobile GPS units, puncture-protective gloves, amphibious assault ships, and much more …’.

What the hell is this stuff for? Some of it looks more suitable for starting a small war, not protecting the environment. And who has got all this equipment now?
Surely this should be a serious national security concern. It reminds me of the exile Cuban arms depots raided by the FBI during the Kennedy presidency. Is the EPA planning to invade someone?
Perhaps one of the Trump voting states. I simply can’t imagine any agency of government in the U.K. Being allowed to arm itself to the teeth in this way to allegedly protect the “environment ” or anything else – I realize it is different in the USA, but that different?

I do read the Guardian everyday, to keep an eye on the false reporting like recently saying NHC were predicting 17ft storm surge in Florida when the linked bulletin actually said 4 to 6 ft ! Lies and more lies. That paper is a beacon of bullshit.

Ivan, is that the ‘Guardian’ kept afloat by the sale of ‘Auto Trader’ using a ‘tax efficient’ transaction in the Cayman Islands? On the other hand ‘Monibot’ is having a go at Merkel for her eco crime record so not all bad.

It is not so much “hilarious” as deeply depressing that such people can trample over the law with impunity
simply because they are seen to be so politically correct .

In his press conference, the FBI director said that while Hillary broke many laws by conducting Sec of State business on a private server in her bathroom, he wouldn’t prosecute because she didn’t mean to, and besides, she said she’s sorry.

I was disappointed when it was decided not to prosecute Susan Rice for her illegal use of intel against Trump team while still in office. Letting these people of the hook while they are prosecuting a fake Russian collusion of Trump campaign people is a big mistake. Letting Hillary off her misuse of office for payola to their foundation is another. And this gal too. Trump isn’t going to buy love from the deep swamp dwellers or have favors he can call. His supporters are not going to pleased either. The law is the law and we better reinstate it fully.

Start at the top . Prosecute Clinton for running an illegal email server at home and pretending not to know what (c) meant when she was Sec of State.
One of the highest offices in the nation running communications out of a PC in her own bathroom.
Richard Windsor should also get his day in court to explain his actions !

Ex-EPA Chief Demands More Transparency

Fully agree with you on this one Lisa Jackson.
Starting with any taxpayer funded public civil service authorising official e-mail addresses for imaginary employees. Simple enough rule to be applied and audited in any public civil service without further ado.
Lisa’s selected target has also other merits: no publicly funded organisations should have a mandate to place environment above human rights. In my opinion the public civil service mandates can be reviewed swiftly, immediately, retrospectively and even extended internationally e.g. IPCC, FCCC and UNEP. The audit standard can be e.g. UN declaration of human rights, but UN should not have the authority to audit itself.

Shouldn’t Apple be sending her to China, that’s where all Apple’s environmental damage is being done.
and the EPA
Illegal experiments on humans
Steve Molloy
“Four years ago I broke the story in this paper that the EPA was conducting illegal toxicity experiments on human beings. In short, the EPA intentionally exposed hundreds of humans in a gas chamber to exceedingly high levels of air pollutants like diesel exhaust, soot and smog in hopes of causing serious health effects that the agency could point to as justification for its costly and stringent outdoor air quality standards. Study subjects included the elderly (up to age 80), asthmatics, diabetics and people with heart disease — the very people EPA claims are most susceptible to air pollution. EPA failed to tell these study subjects it believed the experiments could cause death.
The experiments were fundamentally unethical and illegal as federal law prohibits treating humans as guinea pigs, especially for the mere purpose of advancing an agency’s regulatory agenda. Extra illegality was added by the agency’s failure to inform its human guinea pigs that it believed the experiments could kill them.
After a series of articles in this paper, Freedom of Information Act requests and a federal lawsuit, Congress got involved by asking the EPA inspector general to review the allegations. The EPA inspector general eventually issued a March 2014 report in which it confirmed my allegations, including that the EPA had failed to inform the study subjects that EPA believed the experiments might kill them.”

This cow is right up there with Loretta Lynch who started to prosecute people under the RICO Act and had to bring it to a sudden halt when she realized the RICO Act violator was the guy who sent her that prosecutory demand letter. Remember that one?
Such fine people there were in that administration! Sometimes, the stuff really does float to the top and stay there until it’s flushed.

While the Obama administration was far more open with the corruption (who was going to stop them? Obviously, no one.), there has never been a “transparent” president or congress or cabinet probably in the history of the US. When people talk about the press “hiding things”, FDR and his inability to walk or stand for very long that was very effectively hidden by the press, JFK and his illnesses and medications, LBJ who came to Washington broke and left a milionaire (you can substitute a lot of names in that one) all come to mind. Most divisive president? Not Obama—he didn’t rule over a civil war. There’s no evidence that politics has ever been “clean”, just sometimes dirtier than others.

She gave herself a royal name on her illegal server while implementing industry and job killing regulations justified by a theory. And now she is claiming the EPA is cut in stone and she wants transparency.
I doubt her job at Apple is any more than a figurehead appointment for political favors and Apple will not allow her to damage the company like she did the country.
President Trump was elected, in part, to undo those regulations that are damaging to the US and its citizens.

This has been a very effective strategy……….accuse somebody that you disagree with of doing what you do/did wrong.
Climate change deniers got that name for looking at all the data, including the fact that global climate models were consistently projecting temperatures too warm vs observations.
Those denying this and other indisputable scientific facts were claiming: “The science is settled/debate is over” and if you disagree…….even if you are right and can show the data, you are a denier.
Effective marketing strategy 101 in today’s world that features non critically thinking masses that are led by narrative’s that sound as if they have an honorable objective………..”Transparency of the EPA”……….”Save the planet from human caused climate change”…….”hold Exon Mobile accountable for hiding their knowledge of human caused climate change” “People that disagree with human caused climate change are criminals, blocking the defenders of life from accomplishing their mission”. “Save the polar bears”
Here is a better one: Save us from the fraudulent marketing schemes that intentionally mislead people with junk science and lies to accomplish an agenda.

Lisa Jackson disguising herself as Dick Windsor in her emails? With all the talk of transgender bathrooms these days, maybe Lisa Jackson joined the crowd and thinks she’s a man. Or, with the last name of Windsor, maybe she’s a relative of the Queen of England…

The far more serious issue with what Jackson is saying it that some how the EPA and its staff are sacrosanct. Like most of those on the Left it doesn’t matter to her and I bet many working at the EPA that federal agencies are in the executive branch and work ultimately for the President and those he appoints. Sadly, it is nearly impossible to fire a federal employee, so the present administration will find it difficult to change the “culture” at the EPA. So years back Whitman tried to implement measurable performance standards. Staff fought her tooth and nail and ultimately won. Jackson is trying to sell the idea to I assume the environmental base that the Trump administration is going to do way with all regulations on everything. Again she doesn’t appreciate that Congress has not repealed nor has Trump asked for a repeal of our Clean Water, Clean Air, etc Acts. Anything to keep the bases stirred up. Remember the 2018 mid-terms are a little over a year away.
