Frivolous Is As Frivolous Does; Fractivist Playing Nuns Lose

… 

The radical nuns from Lancaster County who have been playing fractivist while using natural gas filed a frivolous lawsuit that just got tossed out of court.

A group of Catholic nuns in Lancaster County called Adorers of the Blood of Christ have tried several strategies to derail the Williams Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline project. One of stunts they have pulled, in league with a radical Big Green group, is to stick a few wooden park benches in the middle of a corn field they own (leased to a local farmer), and call it a “chapel.” Which is why MDN dubbed them, Sisters of the Corn. They’re anything but serious and a Federal court has recognized it.

Methane Emissions Decline As DEP and Fractivist Hype Skyrocket

Constitution Pipeline - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone

Fake news and fake policy are the order of the day with Pennsylvania DEP methane emissions data and the fractivist hyperbole surrounding the just released data.

Articles at Philly.com (now controlled by the same anti-gas Haas family that is the William Penn Foundation and also funds PennFuture, the Delaware Riverkeeper, the Clean Air Council and StateImpactPA) and EnviroPolitics Blog are faking it on the issue of methane emissions. They’re doing so with clearly coordinated news making and reporting peddling fake news about a new DEP Air Emissions Inventory. They aim to support a stupid DEP policy initiative that is yet another government solution in search of a problem.

The High Price of Energy Political Correctness in New York

Constitution Pipeline - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone

No state, other than California, is more politically correct than New York, where PC is gospel and energy political correctness reaches the lunatic fringe.

The winds of political correctness always stir first in either California or New York, the two lunatic fringe states of the union. New York also has an additional element of corruption on the order of Illinois, making it the king of the hill when it comes to wacky environmentalism. Energy political correctness is the underlying philosophy of so much of what happens in the Emperor State because it offers opportunity for both demagoguery and graft. Fracking was killed “at this time” for the sake of appeasing the trust-funder gods from the NRDC gang and solar hedge fund investors. Pipelines have been stymied even as gas consumption grows with a view to forcing acceptance of a Clean Energy Program designed to produce 80% less greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. It’s energy political correctness or bust and, therefore, bust it will be.

The Virginia Organizing Hustle: Another Fractivist Tool at Work

Constitution Pipeline - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone

Virginia Organizing is another phony political outfit masquerading as a charity with no regard for the law while making itself a fractivist tool for others.

Kevin Mooney, over at The Daily Signal, has a new piece up about an outfit I’ve known about for a while called Virginia Organizing. It first came to my attention a few years ago when I was exploring who was donating money to the NRDC. Virginia Organizing came up repeatedly not as a donor, but as a recipient, of fractivist money from the same people funding NRDC. They included the Schmidt Family/Google Foundations, the Park Foundation, Tides Foundation, the William & Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Marsla Foundation and the Wallace Genetic Foundation, all of which have been previously exposed on these pages as major fractivist enablers.

Kevin, though, has uncovered an additional link of significance; the dark money Sea Change Foundation which appears to have funneled Russian money into fractivist coffers via the helpful hands of the solar invested Simons family. His article is well worth reading as it details the insights of a CIA veteran as to how Russian interests manipulate groups such as Virginia Organizing into doing their bidding through a merging of ideological and mercenary objectives on the giving and receiving ends. What’s also interesting to me, though, is how Virginia Organizing has done its dirty work and how it’s gotten away with ignoring the law.

Tombstone Trickery: The Fractivist Descent Into Darkness

… 

Fractivist opponents of the Atlantic Sunrise have descended deep into darkness with an episode of vile tombstone trickery disrespectful of living and dead.

How much more vile can the fractivist cause get? First, there were the outrageous exaggerations and lies. Then, came the foul-mouthed bleating of fractivist heroes accorded celebrity status by an empathetic and biased press, not to mention the junk science, the ridiculous stunts and the vicious propaganda. Now, though, the fractivist cause, such as it is, has descended deeper than ever into darkness with something so vile it’s disrespectful to all human beings. They have engaged in tombstone trickery.

The Radical Rockefeller Campaign Against Pipelines

… 

The increasingly radical Rockefeller family is funding an anti-pipeline campaign on many fronts, including in West Virginia where their puppets are suing.

A group of profoundly radical “environmental” organizations filed a lawsuit in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit last Friday against the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) – for doing their job. The Sierra Club, West Virginia Rivers Coalition, Indian Creek Watershed Association, Appalachian Voices and Chesapeake Climate Action Network have sued the DEP because the department had the audacity to conduct a very thorough review, and then issue a stream and water-crossing permit (demanded under federal law) for the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP).

Carpetbagging Delaware Riverkeeper Loses SWPA Case

… 

The Delaware Riverkeeper, financed by the Haas and Wallace families to kill Keystone State fracking and opportunity, just lost big in a Southwestern PA case.

THE Delaware Riverkeeper (i.e. Maya van Rossum) and a small group of anti-drilling parents from the Mars School District (“Martians”) in Butler County, Pennsylvania (more than 200 miles from the Delaware River, the protection of which is supposedly the former’s mission) have just suffered a crushing defeat in their years-long battle to prevent Rex Energy from drilling wells “near” a local school.

If You’ve Lost Labour, You Can Hang It Up As A Fractivist

… 

If what’s happening in the UK is any indication, with a Labour candidate asking for reason when it comes to fracking, you can now hang it up as a fractivist.

Something remarkable just happened in the UK that portends the approaching end of fractivism both there and here. The UK is the midst of an election. A Labour Party parliamentary candidate for North East Derbyshire named Natascha Engel just said “spreading scare stories for which there is no reliable evidence about increases in cancer rates and low-birth-weight babies is unforgiveable” and “should have no place in the debate about energy, climate change and shale.” It’s something akin to the Flat earth Society sponsoring a “round the world” cruise and reflects a new political reality — fractivism isn’t selling anywhere outside beyond the ivory towers of the gentry class.

The Shrinking Fractivist Play Book Down to the Flea Flicker

The fractivist play book keeps shrinking and they’re now down to flea flicker type moves that attract attention but seldom deliver anything but big losses.

Football, if it weren’t for the ridiculous politicization of the game this year, gets interesting in  December as marginal teams take chances to improve their prospects for getting into title games. One of the oddest of such maneuvers is the flea flicker play. It appears our fractivist friends have resorted to it with a bizarre accusation that the EPA fracking was modified to please the industry. Folks, if the fractivist play book is down to this, the game is over.

The Fractivist Mindset: Arrogant and Condescending

NED Pipeline - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone

The recent election, whatever way one may have voted, really brought out the reality of the fractivist mindset; arrogant and condescending.

Readers of this blog have sent me links to two different tweets by perhaps the most prominent fractivists out there; Bill McKibben and Josh Fox. They reveal the incredible arrogance and condescension of those of the fractivist mindset. There is, in fact, very little more that needs to be said once you’ve seen them.
