Head EPA Nazi Pays the Iowa State Fair a Visit

The head of the most out of control agency (save the IRS) in the Obama regime paid a visit to the Iowa State Fair this week. Yes, Gina McCarthy, Barry's newly-minted administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, came to the Iowa State Fair yesterday to play kissy-face with the farmers she will soon be stabbing in the back:
President Barack Obama’s top environmental official pledged to build trust with farmers in Iowa and elsewhere who have been roundly critical of federal regulation.
“My commitment to you is that at the end of my term, we will have a stronger, more productive, more trusting relationship between EPA and the agriculture community,” Gina McCarthy, the newly-appointed administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said during a speech in Des Moines today. “Why are we going to do that? It benefits me, it benefits you and it will make this country stronger.”
The Iowa farmers in the audience – including those who have chafed at the thought of regulation of farm dust and youth employment and heavy penalties for farm run-off problems – all applauded her warmly.
“She’s probably the most on-track EPA director we’ve ever talked to,” said Nancy Beyer, a co-owner of Koszta Farm Corp. corn and soybean farm in rural Belle Plaine. “This reception was quite favorable.”

Not so fast, Nancy. You apparently don't understand that this woman is a man-made global warming Nazi (oh, I forgot, it's "climate change" now that the facts don't match their former rhetoric). In fact she's old enough to have been a young Nazi in the made-man global cooling craze of the 1970s.

What's this mean to the farmers and the rest of us? It means that ole' Gina is of like mind with the liberal's president: She's not going to let the facts get in the way of her ideology:

 McCarthy made a full-throated defense of her agency’s right to address greenhouse-gas emissions and other pollutants, saying that air-quality regulations and environmental cleanup efforts have already produced economic benefits in the United States.
“Can we stop talking about environmental regulations killing jobs, please?” she asked, prompting loud applause. “We need to embrace cutting-edge technology as a way to spark business innovation.”
This full-throated defense of her ideology will no doubt include a continuation of the EPA's practice of using drones to monitor farmers cow herds, embracing ever-higher CAFE standards for cars which will eventually have us all driving around in two-seater tinfoil balls and further demonization of the cola industry, which produces 40% of this country's electricity. She will no doubt be all in for the Great and Powerful Obama's use of environmental executive orders ("we're tired of waiting for congress to act on climate change", she said) which will further strangle the struggling economy.

Iowa Governor Terry Branstad and many of the farmers heralded McCarthy as someone who seemed reasonable and easy to work with. You just wait folks: The best in environmental Nazism is yet to come.
