Climate Witch Trials - Jim Willis reports

NGSA filed a brief in federal court and also with the New York DEC to move forward with two critical pipeline projects, including the Constitution.

The Natural Gas Supply Association (NGSA) has gone into action to support two currently-stalled pipeline projects in the People’s Republic of New York, where Chairman Cuomo rules. Yesterday the NGSA filed a brief in federal court to respond to an effort by the rogues gallery of environmental extremist groups (including Catskill Mountainkeeper, Riverkeeper, Sierra Clubbers and other ne’er–do–wells) to stop the Constitution Pipeline from getting built.

Poetic Justice for the Constitution Pipeline?

Constitution Pipeline - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone

The Constitution Pipeline is getting some poetic justice, as Andrew Cuomo is forced to address an energy situation that requires more than his bandaids.

Poetic justice may be the sweetest of all, even if sometimes fleeting. The Constitution Pipeline is getting some right now. Electricity providers in both New York and New England have been telling Andrew Cuomo and others governors they need more access to natural gas. That means the Constitution Pipeline. Cuomo, in a craven act of subservience to the NRDC gang, refused to allow his Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to issue a routine permit for this necessary infrastructure. Now, a heat wave has forced him to call for conservation. How sweet it is! Well, not really.

Bloomberg Predicts a Win for the Constitution Pipeline

Climate Witch Trials - Jim Willis reports

According to a Bloomberg analyst, the Constitution Pipeline is “favored to prevail” in a legal challenge to New York State’s opposition to the project.

We have been making the point, loudly, for the past year, that IF New York State blocks the Constitution Pipeline, as they have now done, the state runs the very real risk of having the federal government strip away their right to make such decisions about any federally-approved pipeline project. We’ve previously warned that New York is in grave danger of losing their power by attempting to block the Constitution.

Constitution Pipeline Grabs Important Legal Support

Climate Witch Trials - Jim Willis reports

Editor & Publisher, Marcellus Drilling News (MDN)

 

The Natural Gas Supply Association, and other organizations, supported the Constitution Pipeline by filing an appeal against NY DEC.

It was perhaps the sleaziest of his sleazy political moves. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo made a non-science-based political decision to deny the Constitution Pipeline stream crossing permits in April. The man is a menace to all New Yorkers. He caves to his radical, fringe left on a regular basis. He did it again with his decision to deny the Constitution Pipeline.

Williams, Cabot and the other partners in the project are not taking it laying down.  Consequently, they sued New York in federal court. There is a very real possibility that the court will neuter NY’s decision-making role in the project. The Constitution doesn’t stand alone. A number of national industry organizations are already coming to the Constitution’s defense.

FERC Smacks Vile Eric Schneiderman Across Face

There is no more vile official in state government than Eric Scheiderman, the vindictive Attorney General of New York, just smacked across the face by FERC.

FERC just issued its opinion on Eric Schneiderman’s allegation that Williams orchestrated tree clearing of the Constitution Pipeline right-of-way. FERC asked, in so many words, just how stupid Schneiderman thought they might be. The agency delivered a smack across the face of the nasty wide-eyed Attorney General playing politics on behalf of the NRDC gang. How sweet it was.

Natural Gas Double-Talk from Cuomo: More Duplicity

fractivism - Jim Willis reportsJim Willis
Editor & Publisher, Marcellus Drilling News (MDN)

…. 

Cuomo’s natural gas double-talk continues; calling for more clean natural gas at the same time he’s banning drilling and rejecting pipelines!

If this doesn’t take the cake: The very corrupt New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo sold out his own residents and their property rights to radical leftists by placing an ongoing moratorium on high volume (not low volume) hydraulic fracturing, and then by denying the Constitution Pipeline necessary permits to begin construction. Cuomo has, in short, done everything he can to stop natural gas production in the Empire State. Now he turns around, and as part of his official energy policy says (via his underlings at the Public Service Commission) gas is clean-burning and important part of the state’s energy future. Talk about chutzpah!

BerlinRosen and the Fractivist Con Game

Preet Bharara’s pursuit’s of NYC commie Mayor Bill deBlasio (yes, him, too) leads to a firm named BerlinRosen involved in the fractivist con game.

Preet Bharara is an ambitious guy. He’s already put the Democratic leader of New York’s General Assembly and the Republican leader of its State Senate away, he’s hot on the trail of Andrew Cuomo and his henchmen and now he gone after New York City’s commie Mayor Warren Wilhelm, Jr. a/k/a Bill deBlasio. He is also getting ever closer to the heart of the fractivist con game with revelations about the role of a firm known as BerlinRosen in getting the Mayor (himself a big-time fractivist) elected and all that has followed.

PA Goes After Upstate NY Businesses Abandoned by Cuomo

Andrew Cuomo’s determination to make a wilderness of Upstate NY is leading to Pennsylvanians recruiting abandoned businesses to the Commonwealth.

There are consequences to the craven behavior of miscreants. Others are motivated to deal with that behavior or take advantage of it. That’s what’s happening to Andrew Cuomo, New York State’s erstwhile governor who long ago abandoned the real job for the sake of playing political crime boss and left Upstate to the NRDC gang to make a wilderness of it.

Cuomo redefined Upstate NY as Buffalo for the sake of using a cool billion of taxpayer money to reward his cronies with specials deals and opted to write off everything between there and NYC – after all, there are no votes for him in that flyover zone anyway. So, he killed fracking. He’s trying to kill the Constitution Pipeline. Upstaters, though, do have options as their neighbors from Pennsylvania have noticed and are now actively recruiting Upstate NY business to run for the wall and escape the corrupt Empire State while the Checkpoint Charlie guards are distracted by Preet Bharara’s hot pursuit of the governor.

Constitution Pipeline Decision Earns Cuomo Lawsuits

Constitution Pipeline - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone

Andrew Cuomo’s Constitution Pipeline decision has now earned the emperor of the Empire State two well-deserved lawsuits from Williams.

Andrew Cuomo’s very obvious political strategy with the Constitution Pipeline was to delay, delay, delay and delay some more to allow time for opposition to build; the same tactics he employed with his fracking decision. It is a deliberate one played also by Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, another NRDC stooge. Cuomo and Schneiderman are two of the nastiest, most despicable demagogues in politics today, and both are indebted to the very special interests who are behind the NRDC, which tells us a lot about the way New York works and the kind of hardball the NRDC gang plays.

These are dangerous, powerful people who will do anything. They snookered Williams by convincing it a needed certification was coming in a few months if the company would just give them another year to play with and then used that entire year to play out the politics for all it was worth. Now, Williams, having been burned, is striking back with legal action on two fronts; one aimed at the faulty decision itself, which was clearly political, and the other targeted at New York State’s very right to exercise jurisdiction over environmental matters preempted by federal law. It’s about time and the new attitude, late though it may be, is very welcome news.

The Absurdity of Life in New York: The Upstate Burden

….
….

Cuomo’s arbitrary decision to ban fracking in New York left Upstate devastated and vulnerable to scams that won’t do much for the economy or the environment.

It is happening again in Upstate New York. This time it is the Wall Street hustlers from the solar energy industry who are going door to door and blanketing landowners with offers to lease their land for energy development using high pressure sales tactics.

Does this sound familiar: landmen telling landowners that if they don’t sign the company’s lease in a week the “parameters” are going to change and the company might have to lower its offer? Parcels of 30 acres or more are being tied up for 25 to 35 years with no rental payment for the first two years, leaving the landowners to pay the taxes with no ability to take better offers. Yet, the company can bail out of the lease at any time during those two years.
