Congressman Reed Defends New York Property Rights in Washington

BINGHAMTON – January 27, 2015 – Dan Fitzsimmons, President of the Joint Landowners Coalition of New York said: “We are extremely pleased that Congressman Tom Reed (NY-23) has introduced federal legislation in response to Governor Cuomo’s theft of property rights in the Southern Tier. We are especially proud that JLCNY board member Neil Vitale accompanied Congressman Reed to the President’s State of the Union Address, highlighting our fight for the rights of New York landowners.”  

Congressman Tom Reed released the following statement:

“Far too often private property owners are left on the sidelines while local, state and federal governments’ make decisions for them on what they can and cannot do with their property. This is not right; it is not fair; and it is not the American way. These actions by government entities often leave our neighbors and friends with property that is worth much less, hurting their families and leaving them little choice but to accept the lower value.

“That is why I invited Steuben County farmer Neil Vitale...

Acting to Defend Private Property

It seems a pity that New York State with a self interested politician leading a pack of wolves has turned its back on individual property owners rights. One need only look at the twisted decisions that were made in NY courts by judges who at this particular time in history were directly and openly beholden to the governor. The highest court in the land found that years of history and action had been accomplished by a law which "was not clearly and explicitly written". The majority of this court...

Silver’s law firm rakes in millions from judges he controls

By Susan Edelman    January 25, 2015 in The New York Post

Sheldon Silver has perverted the courts as well as the Capitol.

His law firm, Weitz & Luxenberg, gets its asbestos cases — and paydays — moved more quickly than those of other attorneys, and reaps a fortune from favorable rulings by friendly judges, charge lawyers and tort-reform advocates.

Silver’s East Village firm handles more than half the cases in a special section of Manhattan Supreme Court called NYCAL...

Cuomo ‘on edge’ as federal corruption probe continues

By Fredric U. Dicker  January 26, 2015 in the New York Post 

Gov . Cuomo is “freaked-out and furious” over the bombshell criminal charges dropped on Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver last week — and “obsessed with fear’’ because of the ongoing federal corruption probe.

One source described Cuomo as “doubly enraged’’ by hard-driving Manhattan US Attorney Preet Bharara’s decision to bring the five criminal corruption charges against Silver just hours after the governor delivered his...

A Profile in Cowardice: Cuomo's Fracking Ban (Commentary)

Dr. Gilbert Ross

After putting off the decision during his self-imposed four-year "moratorium," Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced last month that New York State will ban hydraulic fracturing (fracking). While condemning New York's Southern Tier residents to the ongoing blight of creeping Appalachia, the...

Cuomo handout-plan for Southern Tier landowners draws howls.

Found in Energy in Depth 1/22/2015

E&E News (sub req’d). The ghost of hydraulic fracturing made a subtle appearance in Gov. Andrew Cuomo's State of the State address yesterday when the Democrat proposed millions in funding for economic initiatives aimed at the Southern Tier. Those areas stood to gain the most economically if Marcellus and Utica shale deposits had been developed. Landowners are not impressed and say they are waiting for DEC to release its final environmental analysis on...

Cuomo turns residents into beggars for crumbs

by  MATTHEW SEWARD from KIRKWOOD, NY in Pressconnnects.com opinion 1/15/2014

So let me get this straight: If we beg better than any other upstate region and become one of the selected three most needy beggars, King Cuomo will open his purse strings and bestow upon us a half-billion dollars. Giving us some of our own money back — what a great guy!

And there was one of our elected local representatives on television smiling ear to ear, saying how we can beg better than anyone. Is this what...

New York Fracking Ban Throws Peer Review Under the Bus

on January 14, 2015 at 1:24 PM  in breaking ENERGY

A research paper touted as peer-reviewed science – and used to justify New York’s ban on shale gas development – was actually peer-reviewed by active opponents of shale gas development who concealed their bias from the scientific community and the general public.

This violates at least four different codes of conduct for scientific research and raises more questions about Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s decision to ban hydraulic...

The Dubious Scientific Foundation for New York’s Fracking Ban

  ,

This week, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) announced that New York will not allow hydraulic fracturing to occur within the state, based upon a newly released report by the state’s Department of Health (DOH), which claimed that there isn’t enough scientific evidence to ensure the process is safe. DOH...

Zane: The Orwellian leftist foes of fracking in NC

There is nothing different going on in other states than is and has been going on in New York. The difference in New York is that our politicians are willing to impose non science politics on upstate no matter the cost in lives and jobs. So sad, so silly.JLCpulse

What Happens To OPEC And The Oil Price If Fracked Shale Isn't The High Cost Producer?

By Tim Worstall in Forbes 1/13/15

It’s easy enough to read the basic policy that OPEC is following over the oil price at present. They’re losing market share to unconventional oil producers and they’re not happy about that. So, they’re entirely happy to allow the price to fall so as to keep their own market share. The basic assumption is that those large conventional reservoirs will always be cheaper to produce from than those unconventional deposits. Thus, as the price falls, the...

Pro-Drillers Out in Force at Constitution Pipeline Hearing in Binghamton

By James Willis of MarcellusDrilling. com  1/12/15

Last night MDN editor Jim Willis “took one for the team” and attended a New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation (DEC) hearing in Binghamton, NY on the application of the Constitution Pipeline. Even though the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has approved the Constitution, the state DEC must grant a 401 Water Quality Certificate that allows the Constitution to lay pipe through and under swamps, creeks and other bodies...

Strong manufacturing is good for everyone

By Bryan Iams in The Hill 1/12/15

With many new faces taking their seats in Congress, there has never been a better time for our elected officials to come together to leverage the current revival in U.S. manufacturing. 

Now, more than ever, manufacturing is making important contributions to our economy. According to the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), U.S. manufacturing accounts for more than 17 million, well-paying American jobs, and output has increased by 18 percent since...

Fracking helps America — whether you like it or not

By Richard Downey in PressConnects.com 1/10/15

Energy continues to make headlines. While New York refuses to issue permits for high-volume hydraulic fracturing, oil broke the $50 a barrel mark, bringing gasoline to $2.50 a gallon nationally. That's more than a dollar a gallon pocketed by drivers every time they fill up compared to last year.

Thank a fracker!

Shale plays in Texas and North Dakota have increased U.S. oil production to 9 million barrels a day, upsetting markets and decreasing...

The debate about fracturing must be based on sound science

In Times Record News  1/11/15

WICHITA FALLS, Texas - Hydraulic fracturing has been accused by environmental groups of everything from polluting water supplies to contaminating the air to causing cancer to inducing earthquakes.

The hysteria they have been able to create has people scared to death (no pun intended). Some residents have become so frightened that citizens have asked their city officials to prohibit hydraulic fracturing within the city limits. Texas cities — such as...
