During an interview on MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell reports, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) got warmed up for the upcoming Democratic debate by contrasting his consistent positions on Keystone XL and TPP with Hillary Clinton's recent adoptions of popular Democratic positions.
At a craft brewery in Hampton, New Hampshire, Hillary Clinton called out her Republican presidential opponents for sacrificing American jobs to appease the billionaire Koch Brothers and talk radio Tea Party extremists.
Unwilling to do anything to help Americans, John Boehner concocts some more self-serving lies to blame Obama for his own failings
The problem with Boehner is that he is so accustomed to lying and making a laughingstock of himself, that he is likely unaware that he embarrasses himself, and America, whenever he opens his mouth.
In the final analysis this is government of, by, and for the people, not a group of oil-drenched Koch-whores in Congress
During the Tuesday broadcast of Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough claimed "climate alarmists" are denying science by opposing the extension of the Keystone oil pipeline.
The President's plan is a common sense approach to reinvesting in America by rebuilding its transportation infrastructure.
As the nation continues its record run of monthly jobs created, the oil industry that complains bitterly the President restricts their ability to explore and drill is laying off tens-of-thousands of oil workers every month; not because of Obama's regulations, but due to the oil glut from America's prolific oil production success since the President has been in office.
Of all the reasons to not build the Keystone pipeline, one that is often overlooked, and ignored by the corporate media, is the real and present danger of a break in TransCanada's rupture-prone pipeline the company claims is safe and environmentally friendly.
GOP Senators killed amendments requiring Keystone oil be kept in the U.S., and mandating that the pipeline be built with U.S. steel.
If Democrats had proposed any of their current populist plans last year, Republicans would have went into the midterm elections defending their religious allegiance to the richest one-percent of income earners and their highly-profitable corporations.
Keystone XL will create 35 permanent jobs, not even one person from every state in the Union. Maybe we should have a lottery for each state!
Boehner has enlisted a foreign corporation (TransCanada), the Canadian Prime Minister, and a foreign energy department to put pressure on America, and particularly its President, to approve construction of a pipeline Canada is well aware is an environmental and ecological disaster.
Be assured of one thing. There will be a Keystone XL pipeline in your future; your very near future. The Republicans want it. The blue dogs want it. The State Department has blessed most of it.
Boehner needs to be thoroughly investigated by a House Ethics Committee and the Securities and Exchange Commission, thrown out of Congress, and sent straight to prison. There is precedent to expel Boehner from Congress that involves another Ohio representative, James A. Traficant.
Even if some Americans do grasp the concept of Republicans as the ultimate takers, they likely fail to comprehend that the GOP are ultimately monumental givers; it is that spirit of generosity that drives their habit of robbing the people.
Jindal is not only "acting" stupid about the reality of evolution and climate change, he is also feigning ignorance of America's ascension as the biggest coal, oil, and natural gas producers and exporters in the world.
The team of U.S. Geological Survey scientists found a wealth of evidence "directly linking" an increase in Colorado and New Mexico earthquakes since 2001 to wastewater injection widely used in hydraulic fracturing as well as conventional drilling.
Republicans have nearly brought the ability to govern to a grinding halt that they wear as a badge of honor as if the American people enjoy paying Republicans' bloated salaries for rendering Congress' ability to function useless.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) made an appearance on Fox News Sunday this Sunday. McConnell basically stated that the Republicans will once again try to use the debt limit as a hostage to get what they want.
