SORT BY Relevancy
- Sen. Mary Landrieu's last-ditch effort to pass a bill approving the Keystone XL Pipeline fell one vote short of the 60 needed following an all-day debate Tuesday that touched both on the merits of the pipeline and Louisiana's Dec. 6 Senate election.
The final vote was 59-41.
Some viewed the vote as a last-ditch chance for Democrat Landrieu to close a gap with the favorite to win the run off -- Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy, R-Baton Rouge. And Republicans were quick to say the defeat showed that Landrieu clout falls far short of what she's been telling voters.NOL

Are you interested in knowing the facts about the Keystone XL pipeline? Well, depending on the source, the “facts” vary wildly. Proponents tout the Alberta tar sands as the new Saudi Arabia, claim that the Keystone pipeline will bring 100,000 jobs and help get the US off of foreign oil. Critics, on the other hand, say the jobs are more like under 50, that all the oil will be exported, that tar sands crude is highly prone to spills, and that this project would endanger pristine wildlife habitats. So who is right? This week on Sea Change Radio we hear from longtime Washington Post energy correspondent Steven Mufson who has recently completed a book

Well, the hits keep coming! The US Senate shotdown funding for th XL Pipeline yesterday. I never thought I would say this but this is a great move by Republicans in the Senate. We will talk about it today on the show, tell your friends. Immigration is turning into a nightmare for the president and I think he knows it. If he move forward the backlash from Republicans, conservatives and urban America will be considerable.Obamacare, is going into full force next year, all Republicans have to do is remind Americans of who is responsible for their misery. A full fledged PR campaign reminding Americans of the people that designed, supported,voted for, and signed the Affordable Care Act. TV ads, Radio Ads, Billboards, Mailers, An ad blitz to remind people that their insurance cost went up due to the ACA and those responsible.
PNN - Brings you a special report on POLITICKS in Florida - the land of Flowers
PNN's News Director Rick Spisak brings you breaking News Leaders - Ms Anna Eskamani of Planned Parenthood will discuss the latest Tallahassee PROTECTION PLAN for the little ladies of Florida - Who (they seem to think) need to be nudged and delayed should they seek to end a pregnancy. RESTRICTIONS, RESTRICTIONS, RESTRICTIONS they name is REPULSICAN LEADERSHIP.
We also have an EXCLUSIVE ONE ON ONE Interview with Brook Hines, a Daring Woman Political Operative who dared to challenge the conventional ?'wisdom"? of the democratic party that the best hope for the democratic party, nay not just the democratic party but the democratic voters is another democrat cut from republican clothe. Dare we question Rep. Patrick Murphy who proclaimed he left his REPUBLICAN VOTING HISTORY BEHIND, when he jumped into a democratic costume for his last run for office, and yet, and yet - ONCE ELECTED formed a "BUY-PARTISAN" caucus charmingly framed as "United Solutions". UNITED BEHIND a REPUBLICAN benefits gutting, Wall Street embracing, TPP loving and XL Pipeline promoting agenda.
PATRICK, PATRICK, PATRICK, how quick ye've changed. RUN as a dem yet vote as a REPULSICAN ???? We dems who supported you as a less painful pill than the lunatic Alllen West the heavily armed Tea Party general who has since returned to the poisonous swamps from when he came.
The democratic party has so embraced diversity and open debate that when the Democratic Progressve Caucus called for a open primary - has found itself under the shadow of calls for its severance from the party proper (whatever) the NORTHERN "dem" poobahs decide that is, this cycle.
One thing we can count on, not only a lively discusson on PNN but the party moneyship - oops LEADERSHIP, one more cardboard dem. JOIN US today at 2pm!

The so called "GOP controlled Senate" took another 'whup'n' with it's failure to override Obama's veto of legislation approving the Keystone XL pipeline. How did this failure happen? Is the pipeline plugged or is there still a chance to move this project forward?
The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) has definitely left the ACA (aka Obamacare) "In the Pickle Barrel". Do not expect a quick answer on this very important ruling. When and how will SCOTUS finally address this issue?
Mitt Romney did the Elmos a favor in the worst way possible. Who quits because they could have won? Was he ever really considering running?
Obama suggest that we spend more now that our deficits are so ... um .... low and America is doing ... um .... better. He has waited his WHOLE presidency to tax and spend like his fellow liberal brethren and he has but two years left and LOTS of catching up to do.
The Smurfs say Koch spending plans are only going to fire up their base. Does anyone believe them? Didn't Prince Harry already make the Koch brothers his whipping boys last year. How did that work out? So much for retooling their message.
Finally, The Keystone XL Pipeline passes the Senate in bipartisan fashion. Expect quick House passage of the Senate changes and a prompt veto from you know who.

The Super Bowl is the SECOND BIGGEST eating day of the year. ..... On tonight's show, I have some suggestions to save you from yourselves.
Also, The Smurfs struck down their own president again, for reasons that add up to the grand total of 2016
This week the Elmos Senate hopes to wrap up passage of the XL Pipeline bill and the president stands firm in his intent to veto it. The public also stands firm in their support of XL construction so we will revisit some of the facts and misrepresentation in this highly heated debate.
And while the Global Economy is peering at trouble down the road, America stands resilient with its future looking up ..... Thanks again to OIL! Oh my! Fortune Magazine says one company is the economic indicator of this fact. We'll discuss it.'
And, for fun we will talk about how the Smurfs are suddenly the party of obstruction .... How recently was it that the Smurfs said obstruction was a bad thing? What a difference one election makes, no?
All this tonight, and more on tonight's episode of Jump Right In!
Monday Night On Jump Right In with Splash ......
One of my favorite business books is titled Ready, Fire, Aim, by Michael Masterson. The book discusses the 4 stages of a successful business's life cycle. The first stage, of course, is the most harrowing as most businesses fail in the first 6 months. One of the biggest internal obstacles to launching a business is the belief that you need ALL your ducks in a row, before you even test your product's or services's viability.
You do need to line up some ducks ..... the necessary ducks ..... but requiring every single duck to be in place before you make a move can prove to be paralyzing.
This is the problem I see with the new Elmo majority in Congress. The Elmos passed the XL Pipeline Bill, but then came the DHS bill and the Elmo's insistence that it contain riders to limit the president's executive orders on immigration. Suddenly, this one extra duck has got the whole line of ducks confused, bottle-necked, paralized.
As it relates to 2016, The Keystone Bill and the DHS bill are a perfect contrast between the right road to the White House and the wrong one for the Elmos.
Also on tonight's show, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, is a wine connoisseur..... I love her even more now.
Now that our combat efforts in Afghanistan are over we will be stepping up our efforts in ..... Afghanistan? Thangs that make ya go hmmmmmm.
And we have to talk about Yemen. In his Purchase of the Union address, the president, as you know, held Yemen up as an example of how his counter-terrorism strategy is working ..... then Yemen fell apart. That's a problem.

The “school-to-prison pipeline” refers to the policies and practices that push children, especially our most at-risk children, out of classrooms and into the juvenile and criminal justice systems. This practice has been fueled by zero tolerance policies, the presence of police officers in schools, and under-resourced academic settings. These excessive practices have resulted in the suspensions, expulsions, and arrests of of millions of public school students, especially students with histories of abuse and neglect, those who are poor, students of color, those with disabilities or who identify as LGBT. The interruption of education is detrimental for long-term success. It is costing the success of future generations and our communities. On this episode of Spotlight on Youth, guests will discuss this alarming national trend, why it is harmful, and what jurisdictions are doing to address it.
