High Speed Project Investors Threatened To Seize Family Farms In Texas BallotPedia Verbatim Fact Check May 10, 2017 Texas Central Railroad and Infrastructure, Inc. (TCRI) and its affiliates are pursuing development of a high-speed “bullet train” between Dallas/Fort Worth and Houston. Five Texas state senators and ten state representatives have filed more than 20 bills to regulate high-speed rail projects. According to state Representative Leighton Schubert (R-District 13), “This group of foreign investors is threatening to seize family farms, physically divide the state of Texas, and have a gravely detrimental impact on the citizens I represent.” Is Schubert correct that … Continue reading

Hard Rock Mining Rule by EPA on Hold For Now

  February 24, 2017 Scott Pruitt issued a press release that extended the hard rocking mining comment period on a December 2016 rule EPA proposed. They used the Superfund Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (42 U.S.C. §9601 et seq. (1980)) as their authority to issue the new rule. The act provides a Federal “Superfund” to clean up uncontrolled or abandoned hazardous-waste sites as well as accidents, spills, and other emergency releases of pollutants and contaminants into the environment. Through CERCLA, EPA was given power to seek out those parties responsible for any release and assure their cooperation in … Continue reading

Ways Government Can Help Communities Get Back To Work

It isn’t often we can talk about EPA helping a community rather than finding ways to stymie and wrap them up in regulations and rules. BUT here is one that is worth a great deal toward moving unemployed and young people forward into an industry that really needs to be considered.   How many times have we heard of disasters where hazmat cleanup and workers were involved? Certainly more every day as places across the country meet different scenarios. Where do these workers come from? How do they get trained? Is it an industry that could provide good paying jobs … Continue reading

Wildlife Groups Attempting To Stop Border Walls

Congress returns on April 24 and 25 after an Easter break to mull over more issues. The one taking front and center is the looming budget deadline. Of the issues most important during campaigns and for citizens in general is the building of a border security wall using technology, increased border manpower, and a physical wall to get it done. Wildlife groups have always found ways to thwart construction or forward advancement to protect wildlife. I actually am for better building construction with wildlife concerns in mind. But, I believe that with meaningful mediation, forethought, knowledge, and cooperation both sides … Continue reading

Quote of the Day

“To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by right to hand down to them amplified and developed.” – Theodore Roosevelt Note – he said to use it so as to increase its usefulness.  Not to set it aside and not use it at all.

Wild Bill: Scaring Silly People

Environmental Wackos have been scamming people for almost 100 years… I remember back in the 70’s we were all supposed to freeze to death within 50 years, so said the “experts”.  Then that fell on deaf ears and fizzled out.  Enter Al Gore, unemployed and defeated dim presidential candidate, looking for employment, next thing we know the planet will be melting.  Gore came up with the “carbon credit” scheme, or at least he pushed the idea, and it caught on.  Governments embraced it as it created a new taxable revenue scheme.  Brokers embraced it as a new stock where no … Continue reading

PJ Watson: Leonardo DiCaprio is a Complete Idiot

Aren’t you just sick and tired of being lectured about your lifestyle by mega rich celebrities? These assholes should stick to reading their lines and continue being actors… nothing more.  They don’t know shit from apple butter, yet are surrounded by fawning staff and assistants that tell them how great they are so, so then think they should lecture us on our lifestyles. Memo to DiCaprio:  STFU, you’re annoying and irrelevant. ~ Hardnox

Real News That the MSM Does Not Have Time To Report

As Trump derangement hysteria continues to sweep through the hallowed halls of ABC, NBC, The New York Times et al, real news that may be of significant global consequence is buried. Here is a prime example. I’ll bet you have not heard one word about this. From Zerohedge: Concerns Grow About A Nuclear “Incident” In Europe After Spike In Radioactive Iodine Levels by Tyler Durden Feb 20, 2017 2:31 AM Concerns about a potential, and so far unsubstantiated, nuclear “incident”, reportedly in the vicinity of the Arctic circle, spread in the past week after trace amounts of radioactive Iodine-131 of … Continue reading

Infrastructure and Vital Water Issues Are Not Just California’s Issue

Back over the last forty years or so at least, experts and avid followers have discussed, warned, and tried to make headway on getting government to issue regular infrastructure repair, maintenance, and alternative solutions to our vital interests. Only over the last fifteen years have we finally been faced with a crisis large enough to get attention. Droughts in the Midwest, sinkholes, temperamental weather, flooding, bridges and roads in varying stages of disrepair, economic downturns, food production reductions, water shortages have all come together in a perfect storm. Some blame it on the experiments going on with federal level weather … Continue reading

Looking Like Another Win

coming downrange for the American people. H.R. 861 shitcans the fascist vermin in the EPA. We’ll see if the GOP has the balls for this one but in any event, the illegal and putrid EPA must go.

Greatest Hoax of the 21st Century! 98% Scientists DO NOT Believe in Man-Made Climate Change!

From Joe for America by Scott Osborn: Climate Change activists from Al Gore down have been saying for almost a decade that 98% of the Scientific community believe in man-made climate change. But what they fail to tell you is that 98% comes from an equation of only 75 out of 77 climate change scientists. Imagine that! Al Gore lied, and he knows he lied! The 98% lie comes from a 2009 American Geophysical Union (AGU) survey consisting of an intentionally brief two-minute, two question online survey sent to 10,257 earth scientists by two researchers at the University of Illinois. … Continue reading

All Aboard, Trump Train Is Rolling

  Memorandums have generally been directed to those inside the executive departments and are not supposed to override existing laws or write laws. I always assumed they were like memos within any company – for company eyes only and generally confidential. Obama seems to have viewed them apparently as another means of accomplishing goals to make, ignore, or rewrite laws. Over the weekend, a very important memorandum was directed to Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies from Reince Priebus that actually may have addressed some of the worry of last minute Obama actions. 1) Send no regulation to the Office of … Continue reading

Trumps Vision on Paying For Infrastructure and Energy

People on news sites have constantly questioned how President Trump plans to move forward on several issues of concern. Liberals have as usual made a great deal out of not having a syllabus of thousands of pages of game plan to draw from. Had anyone taken the time to really read his “greatagain site” or today his White House site on the issues they may have been less outraged or stirred by off-the-chart hyped fear. The greatagain site had a lot of possibilities and now it appears these are becoming realities as the new administration settles in. The same anxiety … Continue reading

Big Mining Rejects Carbon Sense

From Carbon Sense Many on the alarmist side of the climate debate seem to struggle to find rational arguments or evidence to support their cause so they usually resort to character assassination or defamation. A common attack on me is:  “Viv Forbes is just a coal industry stooge.” This was put to the test recently at the year’s biggest Mining Industry Function – the Queensland Resources Council Annual Forum and Lunch. The delegates on stage at the forum included very senior managers from BHP Billiton, Shell, Anglo-American, Peabody and Glencore. The audience was invited to ask questions of this panel. … Continue reading

Disarm and Defund the Green Globalists NOW

From Canada Free Press Napoleon’s Grand Army was defeated in the Battle of the Nations in 1813. The Emperor abdicated and was banished to Elba. But his army was not disarmed and destroyed by the victors. Just 2 years later, Napoleon escaped and quickly re-mobilised his army. Only Wellington blocked his path to Brussels, at Waterloo. After a fierce day of battle, a weary line of redcoats still held the ridge at Waterloo. But Napoleon’s Old Guard had been held in reserve for this decisive moment. Advancing like a spear, three columns wide, “The Invincibles” aimed to pierce the middle … Continue reading
