Fracknation - VIDEO: Calvin Tillman runs away from fraud questions 

CALVIN Tillman, a prominent anti-fracking activist, has said he will still rely on a fracking study compiled by a company with a CEO who admitted fraudulently claiming to be a qualified engineer and to have a PhD.

 
After being questioned by journalist and filmmaker Phelim McAleer, Tillman did not challenge several court findings that his "expert" was a fraudster but also said the would continue to use her "findings" to push his anti-fracking message.
 
You can see McAleer's attempt to get Tillman answer questions about the fraudulent scientist here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epo-s8rLML4&feature=youtu.be
 
In an attempt to stop the questions, Tillman's supporters attacked McAleer with anti-immigrant insults (McAleer is Irish) and even called the police. The police refused to take any action stating that it was not illegal to ask questions.
 
Calvin Tillman is the former Mayor of Dish Texas who has been claiming that fracking and gas processing in the area has poisoned his children and local townspeople. He is now a full-time anti-fracking activist.
 
However, it has emerged in a number of court cases that the scientific study Tillman relied upon to push his claims was compiled by a multiple fraudster.
 
A series of court hearings and judgements found that the tests and the results were put together by Alisa Rich of Wolf Eagle Environmental Engineers who:
 
 
 
 
McAleer - a journalist and filmmaker - has produced and directed FrackNation, an investigative documentary that examined many of the environmental claims about tracking and found most of them to be, disproved by science, exaggerated or fraudulent.

FrackNation was acquired by and premiered on AXS TV, owned by a maverick billionaire Mark Cuban. It was subsequently picked up for distribution by Magnolia Pictures and is now available on Netflix, Amazon, iTunes and VOD. The movie was financed through the crowdfunding website Kickstarter. It raised $212,000 in 60 days and was one of the most successful documentary campaigns ever funded through Kickstarter.
 
The New York Times described FrackNation as "provocative and meticulously researched."

Phelim McAleer is a filmmaker and investigative journalist. He most recently produced and directed FrackNation - a documentary to uncover the truth about Fracking. He has produced documentaries for CBC (Canada) and RTE (Ireland) and two independent feature length documentaries. Before becoming a filmmaker, Phelim was a foreign correspondent for the Financial Times in Eastern Europe. He also covered Romania and Bulgaria for The Economist.

Heritage- Premiering Tuesday, Nationwide Movie Event Jumpstarts New Conversation on Family 

The Heritage Foundation

Looking around at our culture, we have to wonder: how did we get here?

We’ve seen dramatic shifts—the decline of commitment to marriage, "anything goes" sexuality celebrated, and fatherlessness continuing to rise. Does our culture know the real purpose of family anymore?

That’s why the new film Irreplaceable jumpstarts a new conversation. Watch the movie trailer now >>

Opening May 6 in over 700 theaters, this nationwide film event from Focus on the Family seeks to uncover what we’ve forgotten: What is family? What's happened? And what do we do about it?

The feedback from early screenings has been ecstatic. Super Bowl-winning Coach Tony Dungy raves, “Irreplaceable is a very thought-provoking film that looks at the core issues affecting our families today.” See if it’s playing near you >>

Jim DeMint, President of The Heritage Foundation and former U.S. Senator, says of the film:

“Like our heritage of freedom, we cannot take the family for granted. Irreplaceable reminds us why we must continue to cherish the unique value of a married mom and dad for a child and for all of society.
The love that we first experience in the family is the foundation for loving our neighbors, and that can ultimately extend to America as a whole. Mark your calendar for this May 6 event in a theater near you.”

Join us for an enlightening and inspiring journey with Irreplaceable, on the big screen for one night only. Some theaters are near sell-out, get movie tickets today >>

 

Spread the word by forwarding this email to your friends and family – or sharing the movie trailer with them online.

"Four years ago, I began my campaign for President of the United States as the first openly gay candidate to run from either major political party," said Karger. "We began our historic campaign with a Karger family brunch at Cantine in beautiful Peterborough.  Now, four years later, we've come back with FRED.  It's wonderful to return New Hampshire and travel all over the state during our nine days of screenings. John did an incredible job of capturing the excitement, disappointments and fun of our 2 1/2 year campaign."

Citizens For A Strong NH - Video: Shaheen seeing "positive results" from Obamacare 

Senator Jeanne Shaheen "continues to support" Obamacare.

Shockingly says, "We're beginning to see some positive results" from it. 
Click image to watch video

(March 28, 2014) - This week, Senator Jeanne Shaheen continued her pattern of refusing to hold traditional Town Hall meetings in the Granite State, while hiding behind Tele-Town Halls from her office in Washington, D.C. Ironically enough, while on Capitol Hill, our state's senior senator continued to show how out of touch she is with New Hampshire values.

During the telephone meeting, she told a constituent that she continues to support Obamacare and that she's beginning to see "positive results" and "hear positive stories" about a law that a majority of her constituents are opposed to.

Senator Shaheen made these stunning comments despite the following:  

Derek Dufresne, spokesman for Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire, released the following statement:

 

"Considering she cast the deciding vote for Obamacare and she continues to vote with President Obama 99% of the time, we aren't too surprised Senator Jeanne Shaheen still stands by the law even as it crumbles. However, her misguided and delusional belief that Granite Staters are feeling 'positive effects' from a failing Obamacare would be laughable if it didn't have such serious consequences.

 

"From likely Obamacare-related premium hikes to 22,000 Granite Staters being kicked-off their original healthcare plans, New Hampshire is hurting because of her vote for Obamacare. Senator Shaheen would do herself well to finally have an honest conversation with her constituents about how badly the failing law is hurting them and their families. If she continues to only spend time with wealthy liberal donors in California and the most extreme members of her party on Capitol Hill, she will never understand why her beliefs about Obamacare are so out of touch with those she is supposed to represent"
