ANOTHER OBAMA CABINET UNKNOWN
HERMAPHRODITE OR WHAT?
Lisa Jackson, EPA Secretary-nominee.
Another beaute, Barak.
Third in a series examining the Obama Cabinet.
(December 24, Newark, NJ) With the prominent issues of global climate change, environmental protection and energy independence near the center of President-elect Obama’s campaign, the importance of his choice for Secretary of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) would send a strong, clear measure as to just how much effort his Administration will devote to such concerns.
With the nomination of Dr. Stephen Chu for the post of Secretary of Energy, Mr. Obama has proof positive that his energy initiatives will be scientifically based, well reasoned and practical. Chu is a highly respected Nobel Laureate winning that award for Physics in 1997. Currently he runs one of the most prestigious national laboratories in the country, The Department of Energy Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. His credentials are as solid as those of anyone to have ever held the position for which he has been nominated.
Unfortunately Mr. Obama has thrown another wild card into the deck of Cabinet secretaries with his choice for the EPA Secretary, Lisa Jackson. Jackson is currently the Chief of Staff to New Jersey Governor John “Speedy” Corzine and served as the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Director(NJDEP) prior to that. She had been a fixture for 16 years at the federal EPA in Washington before diving in to the cesspool of New Jersey politics. If her record from her EPA and NJDEP positions are any indication of what she’ll do as EPA Secretary we all better purchase Personnel Protective Equipment (PPE) and expect to have a toxic waste dump located near your city or town within the next four years or for however long she manages to hold onto her Cabinet seat if even confirmed by the Senate.
As summarized in Wikipedia: “While DEP Commissioner, she led a staff of 2,990 professionals responsible for protecting, sustaining and enhancing New Jersey’s water, air and land, and preserving its wealth of natural and historic resources. In addition to overseeing environmental programs for the state, as Commissioner, Jackson oversaw state parks and beaches, fish and wildlife programs and historic preservation. As commissioner in July 2006 she had to shut down all state parks and beaches due to the state governmental shutdown in relation to the state budget delay.
As the state's chief environmental enforcer, Jackson led compliance sweeps in Camden and Paterson, communities in which the effects of pollution on public health had long been neglected. She launched the environmental initiative following multicultural outreach efforts to inform and involve community residents and businesses. Working with county officials, New Jersey State Police and the EPA, the NJDEP then mobilized more than 70 inspectors to conduct upward of 1,000 compliance investigations in the two cities, the first of a series of enforcement sweeps."
Jackson's performance at DEP was criticized by Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility. The organization stated:
DEP employees describe Ms. Jackson as "employing a highly politicized approach to decision-making that resulted in suppression of scientific information, issuance of gag orders and threats against professional staff members who dared to voice concerns.”
Aside from her abysmal track record in every job she ever held at any level of government, she is another multiple ticket punch pick in that she covers several categories under the umbrella of diversity. Apparently she is a negroid, obese, female and that gives her plenty of clout in the Democratic Party. She is also another ill defined type of person very similar to Valerie Jarrett. (See Part Two of the TBC Obama Cabinet Series).
According to world renowned genetics expert, Dr. Anne Drogoness, The Strom Thurmond Chair of the Department of Gender, Genetics and Gatric Distress at Alcorn State University in Alabama, “Lisa Jackson remains somewhat a mystery to us regarding her genetic composition. All we have been able to establish thus far is that she is in fact a human, perhaps with some Negroid traits as expressed in her mitochondrial DNA and is most certainly obese. We would need much more time and data to establish any other facts beyond those I have just mentioned.”
Other scientists and physicians offer alternative theories as to Ms. Jackson’s composition. Dr.Ima Albino, Head of the Mutation Studies Department at Lower Central Upper North Dakota State University posits that, “Ms. Jackson may have acquired her obvious genetic deformities as a result of her time spent in New Jersey. She was, after all, involved in water, air and soil quality in that shit hole of a state and was exposed to a vast variety of carcinogens, toxins, diuretics, pollutants, rodents,and contaminants on top of her proximity to other New Jersey politicians. It is amazing she is still alive, from a medical standpoint, that is.”
Other experts in related fields of expertise also express some degree of surprise, if not amazement, that Ms. Jackson is indeed very much alive. Salvatore “Skutch” DePalma, Medical Observation Officer for the New Jersey Trash, Rubbish and Crap Haulers AFL-CIO local 666 commented that “That bitc...I mean Ms. Jackson was always busting my bal...I mean she...ah...was very diligent in her efforts to get hand outs and palm greasings. We tried to whack....I means we tried to persuade her to get off our freakin’ backs but she still wanted more and more. Christ, she was more greedier than that garbonzo Pasquale “Patsy” Palamerri from Brooklyn. I’d rather see Patsy in the Cabinet instead of Ms. Jackson. Cause at least with Patsy it was always “any pal of Palamerri is a pal a’ mino.”
Several other officials and unofficials from New Jersey who had dealings with Jackson while she headed up the NJDEP expressed deep reservations as to her qualifications, morals, gender, temperament, intelligence, ethics, eating, drinking and drug use habits in addition to her rumored mental dysfunction. Angelo “Anvil” Avollini from the Jersey City Sludge Commission stated “ I woulda kilt her myself but I was kinda...ya’ knows....afraid of having to touch her. We thought about putting a bomb in her car but was afraid we might blow half the state up. Hey, ya’ knows , we gots to make a livin’ here too. Fuck her. I hope she does to the rest of the country what she tried to do to destroy our beauty-fulled Garden State.”
