This from Oil Change International:

President Obama’s “All of the Above” energy plan is threatening to claim yet another victim: our public lands. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) just released a disastrous new set of fracking rules for federal lands and they’re covered with the industry’s fingerprints.

The BLM is allowing public comments, but we have less than a month to make our voices heard. Help beat back the corporate influence on our democracy and join in a flood of comments demanding the BLM protect our communities by banning this extreme fossil fuel extraction process.

Over the past two years the Oil and Gas industry sent teams of lobbyists to Washington DC to make sure any new regulation had enough loopholes to be meaningless. The industry had 9 closed door meetings with the BLM in the past 6 months alone and dozens more before that. This isn’t anything new, the BLM has had a cozy relationship with industry for years, from secret leasing processes to the industry actually paying BLM staff salaries.

The BLM needs to be held accountable for their industry-friendly fracking rules, which is why we’re joining together with an amazing group of organizations to generate 250,000 comments to the BLM by August 23rd. But we need your help to reach that goal.

Help us make sure our voices are heard above the corrupting influence of dirty money.

It’s time for President Obama to drop his ‘All of the Above’ energy plan, stop fracking, and get real about addressing climate change. We’ve sent government proposals like this back to the drawing board before and it’s time to do it again.

Does Trump "Tweet" When His Staff Says No?

Thom plus logo Lev Parnas tells the story of how Donald Trump fired ambassador Marie Yovanovitch at least "four or five times," and that they were afraid that he would "fire her with a tweet." This is not the first time we have heard from White House insiders that the president often gives irrational or stupid orders that his staff then ignores.
