Ghoulish love for premature death permeates GOP debates...
By Ernest A. Canning on 9/15/2011 8:35am PT  

Guest blogged by Ernest A. Canning

It's bad enough that CNN surrendered what little credibility it had as a "news" organization by adopting the name and sponsorship of a mega-billionaire Koch Brothers' funded and controlled, pseudo-grass-roots organization to partner with on Monday's GOP Presidential debate in California.

Now, in the midst of this Los Angeles Times front-page headline, U.S. poverty totals hit a 50-year high, comes the loud “yes” (several, actually) from the audience at the CNN 'Tea Party' debate, applauding the prospect of simply letting those who can’t afford healthcare insurance die...

Matthew Boyle, alleged 'reporter' from Rightwing 'news' site Daily Caller, claims he could find no other side of the story
The BRAD BLOG finds one in two minutes...
By Brad Friedman on 9/12/2011 7:33pm PT  

We knew there was something not being told about the story when the U.S. Chamber of Commerce started tweeting the following link (and others like it) to an article at the Rightwing website The Daily Caller this morning...

The second tweet above linked to the U.S. Chamber's blog site "Chamber Post," and their article, penned by the appropriately-named Sean Hackbarth, headlined simply "EPA Regulation Kills 500 Jobs."

The Daily Caller story by Matthew Boyle that started it is headlined "EPA regulation forces closure of Texas energy facilities, eliminates 500 jobs," and goes on to describe how poor Texas-based coal plant owner Luminant is unable to meet a "new Cross-State Air Pollution rule, which requires Texas power generators to make 'dramatic reductions' in emissions beginning on January 1, 2012."

"The company said it has been trying to meet the new standards, but won't be able to do so without closing down several facilities and eliminating 500 jobs," reports The Daily Caller's very very Luminant-friendly Boyle, without bothering to offer any other side to the issue. (What? Tucker Carlson's The Daily Caller is even less "fair and balanced" than Fox "News"?! Say it ain't so! But more on that, and on Boyle, below.)

"Meeting this unrealistic deadline," says Luminant CEO David Campbell without rebuttal in Boyle's article, "also forces us to take steps that will idle facilities and result in the loss of jobs."

Really? Those burdensome EPA regulations --- darn all that clean air and water anyway! --- that's what's forcing poor Luminant to lay off 500 workers during this horrible downturn in the economy?!? Really?! Why, Barack Obama should be ashamed of himself!

Since The Daily Caller and Boyle and the far-right Republican U.S. Chamber of Commerce didn't find it necessary to offer any other side of the story --- and since we suspected there was one --- The BRAD BLOG touched based with Ilan Levin, Associate Director at the Austin-based, non-partisan, non-profit advocacy group Environmental Integrity Project, to get his response to this news, and to find out if maybe Luminant and their operatives at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and their tools at The Daily Caller weren't telling us the full story in their propaganda today.

And surprise! There is another side to the story! But, as Boyle conceded to us in a rather remarkable conversation, he just wasn't able to report it, no matter how hard he tried...

See ThinkProgress for more detail on this, but I just wanted to flag this moment as I find it exceedingly creepy, and suspect this is more often than not the way these things happen. The quick handshake, wink, nod and walk away --- Bank of America, in the form of a top national executive, pledges the corporation's fealty to a Presidential candidate.

No need to discuss what the quid pro quo will be. No need for Perry to even acknowledge it out loud. It's just a 5 second investment by BofA almost certain to pay off should Perry be victorious. Really creepy...

But, ya know, what's the big deal? As Gov. Rick Perry's current main competitor for the GOP Presidential nomination, Gov. Mitt Romney explained recently, "Corporations are people, my friend."

(While his state continues to face record losses from record heat and drought as long ago predicted by the scientists whom Perry knows more than.)
By Brad Friedman on 8/17/2011 1:03pm PT  

Via AP...

"I think we're seeing almost weekly, or even daily, scientists that are coming forward and questioning the original idea that manmade global warming is what is causing the climate to change," the Texas governor said on the first stop of a two-day trip to the first-in-the-nation primary state [New Hampshire].

You "think" wrong, Governor.

He said some want billions or trillions of taxpayer dollars spent to address the issue, but he added: "I don't think from my perspective that I want to be engaged in spending that much money on still a scientific theory that has not been proven and from my perspective is more and more being put into question."

At the same time, officials currently estimate that the record heat and record drought that Texas is now facing --- just as the scientists Perry "thinks" he knows better than had long ago predicted --- will cost the state more than $20 billion in record losses to crops, livestock and more. That price tag could rise, as today's remarkable predictions from the National Weather Service report there is "no end in sight" for the crisis in Texas at this time.

Money spent to help avert the worsening crisis that Texas is already facing is a bad idea, according to what Perry "thinks". Even if what he "thinks" runs counter to, as the AP story accurately notes, the actually-informed opinions of "an overwhelming majority of scientists that pollution released from the burning of fossil fuels is heating up the planet."

On the other hand, money spent by Perry in support of the 100% evidence-free "theory" that there is a giant invisible bearded floating man in the sky who should be worshipped by his constituents on complete "faith", is apparently no problem.

It's remarkable how many GOP officials and sycophants seem to know more about climate science --- and the extraordinary body of data meticulously gathered by thousands of climate scientists, in dozens of disciplines, over many decades --- than actual climate scientists do.

For those who may be dumb enough to agree with the remarkably dumb Perry, just one question: If you get cancer, will you be going to see an Oncologist for diagnosis and treatment? Or will you go find out what the Governor of Texas or Rush Limbaugh or the U.S. Chamber of Commerice or the Koch Brothers "think" about your cancer instead?
