‘Richard Windsor’ departure from EPA is
a victory for transparency


” 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. ”

” 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.”


Enough! Time To Stop The EPA!





 ” Today, The Heartland Institute is submitting to Congress more than 16,000 signed petitions demanding that Congress “rein in the EPA.” The petition recites EPA’s many sins against science and common sense committed during its campaign “to scare the American people into believing that their health, safety and even survival was at stake because of man-made global warming.”
It says “the EPA, having lost their war to scare America into giving them legislation that would allow them to seize control of virtually all energy production and use, are perverting the Clean Air law to give themselves unprecedented powers to regulate American society.”

The petition concludes saying “therefore, I call for deep cuts in the size, power and cost of the EPA.”

EPA wasn’t always so unpopular. It was created in 1970 to protect the air, land, and waterways of the U.S. from harmful pollution. Thanks in part to the agency’s efforts, Americans today enjoy a vastly cleaner environment — among the healthiest in the industrialized world. Yet over the years, EPA has become a rogue agency grasping for ever-more illegitimate power that does little or nothing to protect the environment. “

” After noting that the rumor, if true, would have a substantial impact on the presidential election,
Gingrich pointed to another possible “October surprise” in the coming days.

  “The other big story, I think, that is going to break is on corruption and extraordinary waste in the solar power grants and direct involvement by the Obama White House, including the president, in the solar panel grants involving billions of dollars, and I suspect that’s going to break Wednesday and Thursday of this week,” Gingrich added. “
