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.
Welcome to our first show in Prime Time!
Splash talks about the news of the day, from public to private, Abortion to the XL Pipeline and EVERYTHING in between.
Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush, Elizabeth Warren, Mitt Romney ..... every issue big and small ..... AND the news of the day.
In all realms of politics everyone is whining about something. Why do they whine and where does it get them?
2016 is beginning to heat up. Obama is standing his ground and STILL going it alone. Will the GOP be distracted or press ahead with their own legislative agenda? Will Obama's veto threats become reality? Will they stick? Will he back down? Is this a red line he has the kahunas to stand by?
It is all up in the air and open for discussion ......
The Pond is Open. Jump Right In or wade carefully, but remember .... everyone swims at their own risk.
Rushing to help their candidates before the Dec. 6 Louisiana Senate runoff, Democratic leaders in the Senate and Republican leaders in the House are moving legislation to advance the Keystone XL Pipeline.
"I'm not here complaining," Landrieu said in a floor speech. "My state is doing beautifully. Our unemployment in south Louisiana is 3 percent. So we are blessed because we are an energy state, we are proud of it, and we are creating jobs hand over fist. But there are places like Detroit, there are places in Ohio, there are places in Pennsylvania and New York and in New Mexico and in other places where people are unemployed, begging for work, willing to work. And three leaders came to the floor and said it's time to break gridlock. Well, here's a project that can do it."NOLA

Special Guest: John Kane (Mohawk), on the line with me from Seneca Territory in western New York. He is a national radio, TV and print commentator on Native issues.
Show Topic: John's commentary on the Keystone XL Pipeline.
The Canadian company TransCanada hopes to begin building the northern section of an oil pipeline that would trek close to 2,000 miles from Alberta, Canada to the Gulf Coast of Texas. If constructed, the pipeline, known as Keystone XL, will carry one of the world’s dirtiest fuels: tar sands oil. Along its route from Alberta to Texas, this pipeline could devastate ecosystems, pollute water sources and jeopardize public health.
