SHADY CHARACTER BEHIND CUOMO'S ANTI-ASTORINO SMEAR ADS INDICTED FOR FEDERAL FRAUD

1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Rating 0.00 (0 Votes)

A little information for those of you curious about the Cuomo attack on Astorino. I put it here because you will never read it in the newspaper or see it in the news. JLCpulse

Communication from pro Astorino source 9/19/2014

Breaking news this afternoon! Andrew Cuomo’s ally, and the man behind the absurd civil suit the governor is using in his multi-million dollar, vicious campaign against Rob Astorino, was federally indicted today. This is just another link in the long chain of corruption that Mr. Cuomo has wrapped himself up in.

New York has the most corrupt state government in America and unfortunately stories like these have become common, if not expected.  Solving Albany’s corruption problem begins with a change in governor. Help elect Rob Astorino this November by contributing $25, $50, or even $100 today.

The full press release on Cuomo’s latest corruption scandal is below.

The Empire State’s ugly war on energy

By Marc Miles and Wayne Winegarden 9/18/2014 The New York Post 

New Yorkers are paying far too much for the essentials of modern life.

For evidence, look no further than the gas pump: State taxes add about 50 cents to each gallon of gas and diesel, the second-highest gas tax in the country.

And New York’s electricity prices are the fourth-highest in the nation. That impacts more than just your monthly bill; it adds to overhead for every business in the state, one...

By Deborah Stine, contributor, and Andrew Gellman in the Hill 9/17/14 

Shale gas, natural gas extracted from shale using hydraulic fracturing, is found throughout much of the United States. This includes Pennsylvania, home to Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) and much of the Marcellus shale region. As a result, CMU researchers have studied shale gas and the implications of its widespread use, looking at both the potential for regional economic opportunities as part of the American...

James Lebas, former chief revenue estimator for the Texas Comptroller’s office, made news recently when he told the state’s House Committee on Energy Resources that, working with the Comptroller’s office, he had determined that output from the oil and natural gas industry now accounts for fully one-third of the entire Texas economy.  Given that the Texas economy would rank 12th among all nations on earth, that’s an amazing amount of economic...

ABC -  PITTSBURGH — Sep 16, 2014, 5:59 PM ET  By KEVIN BEGOS Associated Press

The final report from a landmark federal study on hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, found no evidence that chemicals or brine water from the gas drilling process moved upward to contaminate drinking water at a site in western Pennsylvania.

The Department of Energy report, released Monday, was the first time an energy company allowed independent monitoring of a drilling site during the fracking process...

This week’s New York Times has a report from a group based at Ohio State University which found that water contamination by methane and other hydrocarbons, even in areas where hydraulic fracturing of shale and horizontal drilling — the technologies known as “fracking” — is occurring is not the result of the process itself, but rather from well leaks.

Water contamination, especially the fear that...

America's economy is definitely growing again, as was evident in the recent reports on GDP and service-sector growth. At the same time, the renewed growth just isn't creating enough jobs or wage increases to really bring confidence back to Main Street, as we saw with the latest jobs report.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has a reputation as a dysfunctional government agency–deservedly so. They botched the response to folks in need in Louisiana following Hurricane Katrina under Pres. George W. Bush, and they botched the response to Hurricane (then “super storm”) Sandy in New Jersey and New York under Pres. Barack Obama. Many folks in New Jersey and New York still aren’t back in their homes or in comparable replacement homes–two years later. Now we learn that FEMA...

By Scott Waldman in Capital  9/11/14

ALBANY—Andrew Cuomo has routinely stalled politically difficult decisions relating to energy and the environment, producing a political bottleneck that has frustrated both industry boosters and environmental activists.

The best-known example of Cuomo's application of the stall tactic concerns whether to permit or ban fracking, which the governor has avoided making a decision on by citing an ongoing impact study by the state health department.

But the...

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — Waist-high weeds and a crumbling old Chevy mark the entrance to a rust-colored factory complex on the edge of town here, seemingly another monument to the passing of the golden age of American industry.

But deep inside the 14-acre site, the thwack-thwack-thwack sound of metal on metal tells a different story.

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy wants energy investors to spend their dollars on building infrastructure to carry natural gas across the country.

McCarthy's pitch to the business community at a Barclays-hosted conference in New York Tuesday instead of, say, regulators or policymakers stems from the EPA having no jurisdiction over the pipes that send natural gas into homes and...
