Fracking Cover Up: Frack Water Contamination in Fracksylvania

 February 4, 2016 9:42 am Pennsylvania Fracking Water Contamination Much Higher Than Reported Laurel Peltier, Baltimore Fishbowl  The headline flew around the globe like wild fire. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published their long-awaited draft fracking drinking water study and concluded:fracking has had no widespread impact on drinking water. But if you’ve had your ear to the ground in fracking communities, something didn’t sit right with the EPA’s takeaway. Though the gas industry claims fracking is safe and doesn’t harm drinking water, that story doesn’t match what many landowners report from the fracking fields. At least in Pennsylvania, the reason for this discrepancy comes down to a singular issue: mismanaged record-keeping and reporting by the Department of the Environment (DEP). Based on 2,309 previously unreported fracking complaints unearthed by the non-profit Public Herald, the public […]

Hillary Impersonates a Progressive !

Hillary Does Stand-Up : “I’m a Progressive Who Gets Things Done.” For whoever pays her the most.  02/04/2016 11:09 am ET | Updated 2 days ago Jeff CohenAuthor and media critic   In her last debate, Hillary said, “Of course I’m a progressive, I’m a woman, running for President.” Really ? Like Carly Fiorina ? Or Michelle fracking Bachman ?  Like those progressives ? In her speech claiming victory after the Iowa caucuses, Hillary Clinton proclaimed herself “a progressive who gets things done.” I had to laugh. And it wasn’t just because former President Bill Clinton — the centrist Triangulator-in-Chief — was standing behind her, beaming and clapping. A quick review of Hillary Clinton’s record shows that much of what she gets done is anti-progressive (not unlike President Clinton in […]

Cooked with Ice: Senate Votes To Burn Methane Hydrates

While they melt into methane gas and cook the planet. Don’t know what methane hydrates are ? Neither does the popular press. Which is why you may not have heard of them and why they are buried in the Senate energy bill – that President Sanders would veto and President Clinton 2.0 would sign. Methane hydrates is literally methane gas frozen in ice – on the ocean floor, under frozen tundra. As those ice crystals melt, they release methane into the water and atmosphere. The amount of methane trapped in ice far exceeds the amount trapped in shale. So the frackers want to extract the gas from the ice, which will in turn warm the planet and melt more methane ice. Repeat. Kind of a Fracking Sci Fi Nightmare. Brought to […]

Example of a Central American That Might Want to Come to America

Example of a Central American That Might Want to Come to America

You know, like this guy. Corporal Samuel Toloza.  He and his platoon went to secure a besieged compound of the Iraqi National Guard. His unit nearly overrun, his friends dead and dying, and completely out of ammo, the insurgents moved in on Toloza’s platoon. Toloza pulled out his pocket knife, the only thing he had left. Facing almost certain death, he charged the attackers.  He managed to kill at least one, wound several others, and drove the rest back long enough for relief forces to arrive. Under normal circumstances, that might have earned Corporal Toloza a Congressional Medal of Honor. When Toloza and 16 other soldiers arrived that morning at a low-walled compound of the Iraqi Civil Defense Corps, about 1.2 miles from their camp, they found its 350 occupants had melted […]

Carson Accuses Tricky Ted Cruz of Dirty Tricks

Why are we not surprised ?  What else would you expect from Richard Nixon’s Canadian Love Child  ? Carson Accuses Cruz of Dirty Tricks at Iowa Caucuses Tessa Berenson@tcberenson Feb. 1, 2016 Ben Carson was incensed as the results of Monday night’s Iowa caucuses rolled in, accusing the winner of spreading falsehoods about him at caucus sites. Carson’s team claimed that Ted Cruz’s campaign deliberately sent emails to supporters to spread false rumors at caucus sites that Carson had dropped out, so his supporters would caucus for other candidates. “That is really quite a dirty trick,” Carson said speaking to reporters at the end of the evening. “That’s the very kind of thing that irritated me enough to get into this quagmire.” “To have campaigns come out and send emails to […]

NUCLEAR FRACKING…SHEER ‘BRILLIANCE’!

NUCLEAR FRACKING...SHEER 'BRILLIANCE'!

DUMB IS AS DUMB DOES…   Nuclear fracking — ‘a very expensive failure’ On a high flank of Battlement Mesa, a summer home sat almost atop a nuclear test site, and fish occupied a former drilling fluid overflow pond. That’s how the U.S. Department of Energy described the scene in 2005, when it released an “End State Vision” report on cleanup from Project Rulison decades before. It all started with the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission’s Operation Plowshare, which aimed to find peacetime applications for nuclear explosives. “The naive assumption was that, since other explosives have industrial uses, so should nuclear devices,” explained Rick Aster, Geosciences Department head at Colorado State University. “Even at its inception, there were concerns about many aspects of the program.” After several proposed projects involved excavation […]

Bernie Sanders Wants To Ban Fracking

Bernie Sanders Wants To Ban Fracking

Hillary is a “Corporate Democrat” who sees domestic and foreign policy through the  eyes of Wall Street, while Bernie is a “People’s Democrat” who understands that Free Market Capitalism is the greatest Pyramid Scheme ever rigged by politicians – on behalf of their paymasters.  Bernie Sanders’s Radical Environmental Proposal Hillary Clinton keeps adopting his positions, but not this one. By Rebecca Leber January 27, 2016 There isn’t much daylight these days between the Democratic candidates on the environment. Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, and Martin O’Malley all agree that humans are responsible for climate change and that it’s one of the world’s most pressing problems. To that end, they support clean energy tax breaks, reject drilling offshore and in the Arctic, and oppose the (now-rejected) Keystone XL pipeline. But there’s one environmental issue […]

Fracking Oxymorons: “Republican Conservatives”

Fracking Oxymorons: "Republican Conservatives"

Next time someone even mentions “Republican Party” and “fiscally conservative” in the same sentence, give them this short list: Who went to war in Iraq by borrowing a trillion dollars from the Chinese ? Who started Medicare Part D, but didn’t fund it (and at the same time, forbade Medicare from negotiating drug prices with providers, thus ensuring that Americans pay more for the same drugs than anyone else in the world)? Who squandered the only budget surplus in 50 years (Clinton’s) by giving it back as a “refund” to taxpayers, instead of paying down the deficit, cutting taxes that didn’t deliver the promised jobs or economic growth? Who ‘saved money’ by cutting auditors from the federal government? (hint: every dollar spent on auditors saves $20 in waste, fraud, and […]
