Obama Nominates ObamaCare Shill for Secretary of the Interior


Sally Jewell was born in the UK and is the CEO of REI, best known as the hipster sporting goods chain, which is responsible for the popularity of those Vibram toe shoes. REI is officially a cooperative, but its executives are very well compensated, with Jewell earning over a million a year.

Jewell was a Washington Mutual banker, an oil executive and then began running one of the more ecologically fanatical companies around. Sally Jewell has expressed her support for Cap and Trade, but it’s her political activity on behalf of Barack Obama that got her a seat at the table.

Sally Jewell is not only a reliable Democratic Party donor, giving cash to Obama during his primary, and donating to Patty Murray and other local Dem hacks, but also became a shill for ObamaCare providing a corporate face for the destructive and illegal enforced mandate and the other provisions of the law.

Like most corrupt Democratic millionaires, Sally Jewell had no interest in actually living by the laws that she used her influence and leverage to force down people’s throats.

The trendy Pacific Northwest outdoor equipment retailer’s progressive CEO and Democratic campaign donor, Sally Jewell, appeared with President Obama in 2009 to tout White House health care reform initiatives. Two years later, REI snagged a waiver to protect the health benefits of a whopping 1,180 workers from the very tentacles of the big government bureaucrats Jewell embraced at Obama’s roundtable.

Now Sally Jewell has reaped the fruits of her leftist activities by being nominated as Secretary of the Interior. Sally replaces the loathsome Ken Salazar and yet promises to be an even more fanatical eco-fascist than him.

Jewell is the cliched leftist. The one you see on campuses and shopping at Whole Foods.

The initiative was launched after 9/11. As we looked at the attacks on the United States, we thought, “Why does the world hate us?” We saw an opportunity to bring a business voice to the issues of global poverty, the idea that you are never going to solve global poverty if you don’t create economic opportunity in those communities.

Sally Jewell never considers why Americans hate the left. She only wonders why Muslims hate America.

    So funny – where you had written cliched, I saw the word, clenched. As in a fist, which is also appropriate for the context :)

    OK. Try that at the next rape trial. "Ms. victim, have you ever considered the question of why men treat you this way? It's obvious you deserve it."

    The "hate" that does exist around the world is based on lies. Lies of Muslims and leftists. Now can we solve those root problems?

      which is Ironic, given that the Womens' Studies crowd vociferously and violently rejects "victim-blaming".

    Except that she doesn't even countenance the real reasons why Muslims hate America…

    "She only wonders why Muslims hate America."
    That's a no brainer. I wonder if she's ever heard of, or have made a cursory read of the Qur'an. Ever since about 800/850AD, Muslim's have been brainwashed into Judeo/Christian hatred, because Allah, aka Muhammad said so.

    Many of his nominees are the same shills who worked on his economic wrecking crew. Being a leftist millionaire is of piece with their milieu – capitalism for me but not for thee. Soros redux.

    But never mind. Leftist dogma is the same world over. Similar rantings are used, ad infinitum, feigning concern for third world countries, as they enrich themselves and destroy American capitalism to "help" the other.

    The fruits of their (mis)labors will be the bomblets, they will explode for years to come, long after they leave the scene. This is what makes his revolutionary crew so dangerous – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/08/02/revealed-the-

    Now I know why the price of gas started spiking upwards about a week ago.
