The House Republican Conference today released a new video, “Action, Not Political Games,” that contrasts action in the House versus the political gamesmanship in the Senate. Just last month, House Republicans passed the Smarter Solutions for Students Act, which would prevent federal loan interest rates from doubling, and take Washington politics out of students' wallets. With the deadline only three days away, Senate Democrats have not acted. In fact, President Obama threatened to veto the House bill and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said with unequivocal conviction, "I am not looking for a compromise." What they haven't said, though, is far more important: their failure to compromise is putting students in danger of not being able to attend college.
New video highlights Scott Brown desperation to return to Washington to represent big oil, Wall Street instead of the middle class
Concord - Ahead of Scott Brown's trip to Keene this afternoon, the New Hampshire Democratic Party is launching a new web-video entitled 'desperado.' The video highlights how Scott Brown is so desperate to return to the U.S. Senate to represent big oil and big banks instead of the middle class that he doesn't care what state he has to run from. [Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7P0T--CgB5E]
The trip comes just days after Brown's carpetbagger trial balloon was panned by New Hampshire citizens. Public polling last week revealed that more than half of New Hampshire voters didn't want Brown to run for office in New Hampshire, nearly two thirds didn't consider him a Granite Stater, and he has a net unfavorable rating of almost 50%. The national media hasn't been much kinder, lampooning his desperate scheme as something between 'a really, really, bad idea,' and 'delusional.'
"The people who know Scott Brown's record of standing up for Wall Street instead of Main Street best rejected him last fall, and New Hampshire wouldn't be any different," said New Hampshire Democratic Party Communications Director Harrell Kirstein. "Brown co-sponsored the Blunt Amendment which allowed employers to deny women preventive health care and contraception, voted against equal pay for equal work, and supported Paul Ryan's budget that turns Medicare to a voucher program and would cost seniors $6,400 a year, all to pay for tax cuts for the wealthiest. Those aren't New Hampshire values."
IMF to Show Clips from FrackNation during International Conference
PRESS RELEASE | March 18, 2013
Hollywood, CA—Phelim McAleer, director of controversial "pro-fracking" documentary FrackNation, will speak and show clips from his film at a conference hosted by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and Oxford University.
Phelim will give the keynote address on March 20 at 12:15 p.m. Eastern at the Understanding International Commodity Price Fluctuations Conference.
"This is great opportunity to speak the truth to influential leaders and decision-makers," McAleer said. "IMF has an international reach, places where they need to hear the truth about fracking—not the lies or misinformation perpetuated by films like Gasland and the anti-fracking movement."
The film has generated huge controversy since its release January 22 on Mark Cuban's AXS TV.
Tom Wilber, a journalist who has written extensively about shale gas development, said that FrackNation "falls well short" of telling the truth and that it contains a "Limbaugh brand of contempt."
But The New York Times called FrackNation "meticulously researched" and said that “much of what it reveals is provocative.”
"It's important that world leaders educate themselves about fracking. It's the future of energy," McAleer said. "FrackNation challenges anti-fracking claims and debunks the myths. Everyone interested in energy policy—and truth—needs to see FrackNation."
