NYC Mayor Supports Moratorium on
Fracking in NY – ‘Too Much Danger’

Cybercast News Service, by Penny Starr

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/25/2014 11:12:37 AM

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio weighed in on the hydraulic fracturing debate in his state during a press conference Thursday in Washington, D.C. “The one thing I’m firm about is I don’t see any place for fracking,” de Blasio told reporters at the U.S. Conference of Mayors when CNSNews.com asked what his policy would be “as far as developing oil, natural gas and other traditional energy sources in the state.” “The science simply isn’t reliable enough; the technology isn’t reliable enough, and there’s too much danger to our water supply, to our environment in general,” de Blasio said. “So, my view

Fine by me. Just South of their border, here in Northeast PA, life is BOOMING. PA has issued 14,000 well permits to date, about 2% of the total expected to be issued through 2092. NY liberals are doing us a favor. "Too much danger"?? Hey, walking the streets of NYC is too much danger for me.

This is perfect.
The liberals think it´s bad because the "environmental" establishment doesn´t like fossil fuels.

Fracking has been around in California for over 60 years. Yet, now they want to say their not sure it´s safe too.

Stopping the fracking only hurts local, county and state governments as they will see less and less revenues from the royalties and taxable incomes from fracking activities.
yes, all those people who build the pipes, construct those wells, drill the wells, all make $$ from this activity.

And the gov´t collects taxes from this activity which helps support schools, police and firefighters - to name a few constituencies who benefit.

Taking this away will only hurt lower income and middle-class families as costs for heating and air conditioning schools, fore instance, increase, thus, requiring more tax dollars to achieve the same outcome, but less for the actual school.

logic and facts are not at issue here. Yes, he´s as big a fool as one might imagine.
He did not elect himself.
The self-anointed "superior" people voting in free, secret, open elections, put this fool in office. As well as others much like him, both in NYC and in Albany and sent even more like them to Washington. Idiots like him are the face of NYC, as was Dinkins before him, and a nearly unbroken string of them going back nearly a century. (If you think Giuliani was a good mayor, you´ve set the standard far too low).
Bluntly, the voters of NYC are idiots who seem content to do a backstroke in a cesspool. Enjoy it, but don´t expect those of us fortunate enough to live on the "other" side of the Hudson River to sympathize or rescue you from the results of your actions.

The part of NY where the fracing would happen could use the economic activity. Upstate NY has been languishing for decades. As the previous poster mentioned, the economic activity is fantastic PLUS think of the oil and gas royalty and bonus checks the farmers and land owners would get. No fracing is severely depressing the oil and gas lease prices and activity.

I think de Blasio should ban the use of natural gas in NYC as a first step. Think how much danger would be eliminated. After all, with global warming, NYC won´t need heat anyway.

Communists are deeply offended by any sort of freedom or luxury for the masses. They always look for ways to restrict freedom and get more control over our lives. Cheap energy, like the 50s and 60s, means greater freedom.
When energy is cheap, people can live where they want, with cheap transportation. Individual homes are affordable to heat and cool. These pukes are offended when there are comforts, an easier life and FREEDOM. They just HAVE TO find ways to eliminate this and take control.

Hate filled little leftist econazis telling you how much they are ´helping the little people´ as they wreck the economy and destroy freedom.

Pennsylvania is already bringing in $300 million in tax revenue a year. NY decide to rewrite their law on fracking more than 3 years ago and is still not on the final law. When the east coast builds a facility to export LNG, the politics now is going to come back to haunt NY liberals. Who wants to operate where politicians can decide to change the rules on a whim and undoing their decrees takes 4 or 5 years?

I think the answer is to not ship oil or natural gas to NY and let them figure out how to keep themselves warm and keep the lights on. They don´t like the way we get energy, fine, they don´t get any.

Or charge them 10 times the price that everyone else pays.

Notice the simple phrasing, the appeal to the most basic and untaxing interpretation, to keep the fear-mongering as general and non-specific as possible.

Mayor DeBlasio is just acting out the concerned paterfamilias his desperate constituents demand.

His more-in-sorrow demeanor; his love of his city; his knowledge of science and engineering all coalesce into a toothsome fudge of palpablly smarmy faux-sympathy

His honor is a real Huey Long for our time (Gov. Cuomo take note of the genuine article).

So thoughtful and sensitive, a kind of Rainbow Prince of Gotham. If only everyone in political office were so far-seeing!

(These remarks can be construed as ironical).

The column I wrote last week, it turns out, has created somewhat of a storm. This is due to one thing only: Rush Limbaugh read it aloud on his radio program. (Start reading in the middle from where it says “BREAK TRANSCRIPT.”) That one decision by Rush led all of our mutual enemies to go viral, sending numerous Tweets and Facebook posts attacking Rush and me for supposedly arguing that the anti-Semitic neo-Nazi Glenn Miller acted because of Max Blumenthal. Of course, as I wrote last week in an addendum, this was not the point I was making. I wrote the following, and repeat it once again:

Iran Refuses to Pull Terrorist

Iran is insisting that the United States accept its decision to appoint a former terrorist as it representative to the United Nations, which held a closed-door meeting on Tuesday to address Tehran’s concerns over the matter. President Barack Obama signed into law last week a widely supported bill preventing countries from appointing terrorists as their U.N. ambassadors. The bill came in response to Iran’s selection of Hamid Aboutalebi as its next envoy to the United Nations. The pick drew outrage on Capitol Hill and elsewhere after Aboutalibi was identified as having played a key role in the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis,

After describing how he became a "darling of the right-wing media" after calling out President Obama at a prayer breakfast, Hamblin tried to explain how he speaks in "over the top" language about America in decline. But Hamblin really let loose when he insisted that despite Dr. Carson´s surgical talent, his opposition to Obamacare is based on "sentiment," not a "rational pespective. His talent "does not imply an elevated or even rational perspective on health-care policy." Carson speaks from a unique position of stature

When President Obama becomes the first U.S. president to visit Malaysia in almost half a century, he will visit a prominent mosque on Sunday – but not a church, in a country where relations between the Muslim establishment and minority Christians have not always been smooth. Also, Obama’s itinerary includes a meeting with “Malaysian civil society leaders,” but according to the White House he will not meet with Anwar Ibrahim, the veteran opposition leader who since the late 1990s has been embroiled in a legal battle with the government widely viewed as a politically motivated harassment campaign.

On Monday, The Washington Post announced it had hired Philip Bump, a journalist currently at Atlantic magazine’s The Wire, to cover politics for their daily blog The Fix. The move set off a chain of congratulations from across the political press corps. But lost in the media love fest was Bump’s partisan past — a history left unspoken in either the Post’s official announcement or any of the Twitter applause. Not only does Bump’s archive at The Wire betray a palpable bias in favor of progressivism; his career as a journalist began when he headed a vicious pro-labor blog which published the names and addresses of opponents later targeted by

U.S. military personnel has been on the ground in Yemen sifting through the aftermath of recent drone strikes, helping to retrieve bodies and data from the scene of a handful of weekend drone strikes carried out by the CIA, a source told Fox News on Tuesday. Separately, Fox News has learned that U.S. pilots provided airlift to Yemeni troops via Russian-built MI8 helicopters overnight for a separate ambush on a vehicle believed to be carrying top Al Qaeda militants. The missions follow the recent targeting of suspected terrorists in the country. On Monday, a suspected U.S. drone strike in southern Yemen killed 68 people,

Obama thanked first responders, federal officials, and lawmakers, saying they have been "relentless in making sure Oso has the resources they need."

The IRS has a program that rewards its employees for a job well done, but a report released Tuesday by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration found that, between October 1, 2010, and December 31, 2012, more than 2,800 recently disciplined IRS workers got more than $2.8 million in monetary awards and more than 27,000 hours in time-off awards.

The self-styled “civil rights” organization Southern Poverty Law Center, which despite mounting controversy maintains some links to government agencies, released a bizarre and factually challenged screed attacking critics and opponents of the deeply controversial United Nations plot known as Agenda 21. Apparently unfamiliar with the definition of basic words such as “conspiracy” and “theory,” or with the UN plan itself, the SPLC also lashed out at “activist groups,” “mainstream politicians,” voters, “extremists,” and others who question or oppose the UN agenda for what it calls “sustainable development” in the United States.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so.

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine.

The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief
