Ed Schultz cuts guest’s microphone because he won’t let him interrupt.

Ed Schultz had the Heritage Foundation’s Ryan Anderson on this evening. Bear in mind that Ed started the segment off angry and determined to bite someone’s head off and, well, Mr. Anderson was rude enough to continue to try and answer questions that were presented. My personal favorite is when Ed Schultz calls Governor Pence a homophobe, and within minutes condemns Anderson for not being | Read More »

A Bigger Deal Than You Think

As the Indiana debacle unfolds there is an unmistakeable and merited glee from supporters of LGBT rights as they watch the law’s sponsors buffeted by waves of bad publicity and threatened boycotts. As I noted on Monday, Indiana is anything but the firs…

Open thread for night owls: Feds help Shell move toward another attempt at Arctic drilling

Kulluk, Shell Oil's Arctic drilling rig aground on Sitkalidak Island, on the Alaskan coast.

Kulluk, Shell Oil’s Arctic drilling rig barge runs aground on
 Sitkalidak Island, on the Alaskan coast in December 2012.

Another round of our benighted “all of the above” energy policy. Timothy Gardner U.S. approval moves Shell a step closer to Arctic drilling:

The U.S. Interior Department on Tuesday upheld a 2008 lease sale in the Chukchi Sea off Alaska, moving Royal Dutch Shell a step closer to returning to oil and gas exploration in the Arctic since it suffered mishaps in the region in 2012.

“The Arctic is an important component of the Administration’s national energy strategy, and we remain committed to taking a thoughtful and balanced approach to oil and gas leasing and exploration offshore Alaska,” said Interior Secretary Sally Jewell. 

Interior’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management will next consider Shell’s exploration plan and perform an environmental assessment on it, which could take at least 30 days.

Shell lost control of a massive oil rig called the Kulluk in 2012, which eventually ran aground. But in anticipation of returning to the region for the first time since then, Shell has already moved rigs to Alaska. [...]

Blast from the Past. At Daily Kos on this date in 2010AR-Sen: Why we’re fighting:

Lincoln led the fight against the public option. She’s led the fight against regulating greenhouse gasses. She’s led the fight against unions. She calls groups like the League of Conservation Voters “extremists.”

There’s no reason for Lincoln to be in our party. She’s a sure loser in November anyway, having alienated virtually everyone in her state.

The national party may stick with her out of misguided loyalty, but Bill Halter aims to rescue the Democrats from themselves, and we can help offset the big corporate backing Lincoln is getting.

Tweet of the Day

War is God’s way of teaching Americans geography. Homophobia is God’s way of teaching us the names of Republican governors.

On today’s Kagro in the Morning show, continuing backlash against IN’s ridiculous “religious freedom” bill tops the news. Armando discusses it, and the common roots with Hobby Lobby. Iran negotiations continuee, even as Congress pushes for a role in reviewing any deal. And that leads us to a little discussion of the TPP and fast track authority. Had to share a dumb GunFAIL story that’ll really make you “Respect the Culture.” Ted Cruz & his Obamacare enrollment. There are other people in the universe who have run for president, even after actually destroying their electronic records. In the Blood from a Turnip files: extortionate rates on prison phone calls and payday loans.
