SALLY JEWELL, THE OBAMA NOMINEE NOBODY IS TALKING ABOUT

When you’re still trying to clear shrapnel from the Chuck Hagel SecDef disaster from your eyes, while simultaneously trying to enjoy the drone-strikes-good, wet-towel-bad contortions over at the John Brennan CIA Director hearings, it’s easy to lose track of the less controversial Obama nominees.  The Wall Street Journal on Thursday took a look at Sally Jewell, nominated to be Secretary of the Interior:

In naming Sally Jewell as Interior secretary, President Obama lauded the REI boss as a woman who “knows the link between conservation and good jobs.” Tell that to Kevin Lunny.

Mr. Lunny runs an 80-year-old California oyster business that had the bad luck decades ago of being enclosed in a federal park. On Monday, as Ms. Jewell polished her acceptance speech, a federal judge ordered the business evicted. Among the organizations working hardest to destroy the livelihood of Mr. Lunny and his 30 workers was the National Parks Conservation Association. Ms. Jewell is vice-chairman of its board.

Far from a creative choice, Ms. Jewell is just the newest addition to Mr. Obama’s second-term team of loyal ideologues. It is in fact Ms. Jewell’s (relatively unknown) history on the environmental fringe, and her liberal policy prescriptions, that surely made this an easy Obama call. The president knows he can rely on Ms. Jewell to do for the federal government exactly what she’s done at an activist level: Lock up land, target industries, kill traditional jobs.

Jewell is supposed to be above criticism because she’s a female business executive who once worked for an oil company.  But as the Journal notes, the company she became chief executive of, REI, “has been central to campaigns that have squelched thousands of jobs in the name of environmental purity.”

    @ Obamanation-

    Consider this, though– if, while in Saudi, a westerner utters the words that he is a believer, the Saudis will hand him a BIG wad of cash and a white igama, an internal passport which will grant one admission without hassle to any muslim country.

    Not saying that Brennan isn’t sincere, but most of the westerners who went that way while I was there kept the cash and dumped the Igama on the way out of the country.
