Disgraced EPA Director Says She Regrets Not Communicating With Farmers… She Was Too Busy Spying on Them in Planes

Midwest farmers were outraged to hear that Lisa Jackson and the EPA were spying on ranches in surveillance planes. Rep. Tom Latham sent a letter to the EPA demanding answers on this controversial practice.  In his letter Lathan argued,

“No federal agency has the right to treat the American farmer like the Taliban.”

To the Obama EPA – Iowa farmers are the enemy.

Back 40

Today Lisa Jackson told reporters she regretted not doing a better job communicating with rural farmers.
The Hill reported:

Departing Departing Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Lisa Jackson said she wished she had communicated better during her tenure with rural regions that felt victimized by the agency’s pollution rules.

“If I were starting again, I would from day one make a much stronger effort to do personal outreach in rural America,” Jackson said in a wide-ranging interview with Reuters published Monday.

Clashes with rural GOP lawmakers characterized much of Jackson’s time in Obama administration, but Jackson has lamented what she says are inaccurate claims about the scope of EPA’s agenda.

Controversial EPA director Lisa Jackson decided to step down after it was revealed she was being investigated by the U.S. House for allegedly using secret email accounts to conduct official business outside the prying eyes of requests conducted under the Freedom of Information Act.

    This is just more proof that this administration considers the American public as the enemy!

    Democrats believe the people are subjects, at best, whose sole purpose is to labor for the government so that it can further abuse the people.

    Another typical Obamaite–laws mean nothing to them nor are they governed by the rule of law. They do whatever they justify in their own minds. We see this over and over by Obama and his minions. How long will this be allowed.

  • Bigkahuna

    The freaking GOP lawmakers need to get out and stand up to this administration. Publicize it loudly. Defund the EPA or cut its budget in half they obviously have too many people and too much money to waste.

    I hope a GOP pres in 2016 can clear house in these idiot agencies as well and undo as much damage as possible.

    Hmmm…this after reading Drudge’s latest big headline:


    under a photo of Barry and Eric. From the linked article —

    The secrecy surrounding such strikes is fast emerging as a central issue in this week’s hearing of White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan, a key architect of the drone campaign, to be CIA director. Brennan was the first administration official to publicly acknowledge drone strikes in a speech last year, calling them “consistent with the inherent right of self-defense.” In a separate talk at the Northwestern University Law School in March, Attorney General Eric Holder specifically endorsed the constitutionality of targeted killings of Americans, saying they could be justified if government officials determine the target poses “an imminent threat of violent attack.”


    But are they allowing the Terrorist Camps in the USA to grow and multiply?

    To Obama anyone who is self sufficient isn’t to be trusted because they don’t need anyone to take care of them but themselves. That’s the worse kind of American to Obama because he could never convince them that they needed to give up what they have been doing for generations and let the government tell them how to live better.

    All that fresh air, the dirt on the ground, and weeds growing everywhere, you just can’t ever tell what you’re breathing in. And, oh my god, the children exposed to all those filthy animals, pestisides and herbisides all over everywhere is so hazardous that Obama is the only one who knows what’s best for everyone who lives out in the country. And what is that? To get the hell out of the country as fast as you can!

    Let the government take care of you. Just hand your kids over to his administration and they will do a much better job than you could do.

    All you people who have lived all your lives in the country growing all the food that we have enjoyed all of our lives, some don’t even know that milk comes from a cow. They think it comes from the grocery store. Some kids think that those beans and peas are made somewhere and put in the cans to sell. They would have no idea that they grow on a plant. They don’t take biology anymore that teaches them about where things come from, and how.

    And just think how much better the air would be if all those cows would stop farting making all those “green house gases”. And you know what happens in a green house? Things grow better with enough CO2, not like out here with a stripped atmosphere of enough gases to even keep a weed alive let alone a human.

    Her assistant Al Armendariz, communicated Jackson’s (and the EPA’s) intentions pretty well when he said in a speech:

    “In the Middle Ages, the Romans would enter a troublesome village, take the first five guys they saw and CRUCIFY THEM. Then the town would be really easy to manage for the next few years.”

    How could she have communicated any more effectively than that?

    PITY THE FLY: Introducing the Bug-A-Salt Weapon

    Hush, child: no one tell Dianne Feinstein about this glorious weapon, which the inventor calls “The World’s Very First Insect Eradication Gun”.

    The BUG-A-SALT rifle is the masterpiece of a working artist and surfer named Lorenzo Maggiore. After years of work to develop a prototype for the fly-killing salt gun, Lorenzo used his close and extended network to learn how he could introduce this product to the world.

    After he knew the BUG-A-SALT was all he wanted it to be, the idea came about to conduct a pre-sale on a crowd-funding website called Indiegogo. Years in the making, and only one week online caused a global impression— a carefully crafted video that illustrated the goal of Lorenzo’s pre-sale campaign went viral, and a wave of internet-based consumers flooded in…

    66 days later, having reached over 10,000 people in 70 different countries, the campaign ended and 21,000 BUG-A-SALTs (three containers) were spoken for. Lorenzo raised a total of $577,491, which initially made the BUG-A-SALT campaign the 3rd most funded project in the history of Indiegogo’s website. The BUG-A-SALT continues to thrive and currently holds a spot among the top 10 highest funded projects.

    Non-toxic (except to flies), requiring no batteries, and using only a pinch of salt per round, Bug-A-Salt seems to be an entertaining way to rid your house of insects.

    The feds have been hard at work putting American farmers out of business. The EPA will be damned before they let a farmer or two succeed, something that can only be accomplished by cheating, what with all the farm business-killing regulations they’ve inflicted upon them. If the only way to catch them breaking the EPA’s decrees is by spying on them, then spy they will.

    And for whom did a majority of Iowa voters cast their ballots in November? That’s right – the beast, B.H. Obama. Idiots.

    yes, Paul Harvey said it all.

    This is a fine example of your Tax Dollars At Work… to plow you under!

    And, this is just the tip of the spying ice berg! Ha-ha!

    I have decided that it is best to divert spy planes from Mexican Gangs… while they are buying Automatic Weapons from Eric Holder’s FBI.

    And, I am trying to keep those Farmers in a state of intimidation. That’s how I get more votes!

    Sure, spying on Farmers with expensive petroleum powered Aircraft is a waste of Taxpayer money – and drives up gas prices – but I don’t care!

    The good news is that more people cannot afford to drive to work. So, they commit suicide!

    ‘More Americans now commit suicide than are killed in car crashes as miserable economy takes its toll’

    “Suicide is the cause of more deaths than car crashes, according to an alarming new study”

    “The number of people who commit suicide in the U.S. has drastically increased while deaths from car accidents have dropped, making suicide the leading cause of injury death.
    Suicides via falls or poisoning have risen significantly and experts fear that there could be many more unaccounted for, particularly in cases of overdose.”


    We are entering a Depression!

    Why don’t these people just go to one of my government sponsored Dehydration Death centers!

    Let me be clear, my Economic Depression is good news for Food Stamp, Debit Card, and End-of-Life Counseling Bureaucrats – who only make $148,000.00 per year!

    By limousine is leaking transmission fluid and Eric Holder is in the back seat. We have another scheme to spy on Farmers! I cannot talk about it at this time. My Judges need to be paid-off and the NYT needs more Taking Points. Good day.

    I must blame the Republicans for some of the egregious stuff going on. As a longtime member of the Republican party, it’s time to stand up and say enough. Repubs, grow some balls!!! Stand up to this stuff and make these people accountable. Forget business as usual. Comb through these Marxist appointees until your staff is bleeding on the Hill, and root out the anti-American scumbags who are destroying our country and our way of life.

    This is why Sarah Palin was so popular. She was a fighter. But a bunch of guys spinning off on their own (the Republicans) and not joining forces to fight will never be able to make things happen. There is so much information to indict this administration, it just needs compiling on the Hill by some people with some guts.

    Just like everyone in this administration she got her job because she is a lying deceitful scum bag from the far left, she is being forced out for getting caught. The dual email addresses are as directed in every dept. agency and office under obama.

    it was revealed she was being investigated by the U.S. House for allegedly using secret email accounts

    Where’s the news of the investigation? It’s gone full-blackout.

    The republicans give in and “compromise” for a reason. Rep and Dems have the same agenda. Rep have been called the “stupid” party, but its all a dog and pony show. Both parties want the one world government. Both parties need to go.

  • JoyO

    The EPA started out as a noble idea. The environmentalists have become international bullies and they have infiltrated the EPA where they work to use the Government to fund their environmental causes. It has become the mechanism by which the Progressives will be able to control every aspect of our life. We must fight back to prevent them from gaining the absolute power they so desire. Can you imagine a world where environmentalists have absolute power. It would be like THE HUNGER GAMES.

    EPA = Employment Prevention Agency

  • doc

    This bitch should be in prison.

  • these are the people that were againist phone taps.


    The only thing Lisa Jackson laments is getting caught. She was a “team player” for the administration’s tyranny , right from the beginning. She regrets not being able to have the farmers and ranchers buy and drink her cool aid. Immoral scumbucket!

    I am getting so sick of hearing this crap that the government is involved in. Grown adults acting like idiots. No common sense.

  • BobL.

    A few decades ago, I made a sarcastic comment about the government one day going to measure how much methane cows belched. Little did I know they were one day going to check both ends of the cow!! Cow farts and spilled milk being monitored just goes to show how ridiculous and out of control the EPA has become. But, like anything else the government does, it always continues to grow to absurd levels. I would prefer the bureaucrats who dream up this kind of foolishness spend their time watching porn on their computers.
