(The above is video shot by a local resident in Mayflower, Arkansas.)
And take a look at these must-see pictures of the spill.
No one is admitting how much oil was released.
This is just like BP’s massive efforts to hide the extent and damage from the oil spill – even though their approach led to greater oil pollution – in order to avoid costs.
Indeed, Senator Sander said:
It reminds me of what happened on the Gulf coast. It reminds me of the [...]
The streets of a U.S. town in the state of Arkansas have been deluged by over ten thousand barrels of crude oil – after an Exxon Mobil pipeline burst on Friday. Around two dozen homes have been evacuated – with some residents forced to stay away for several more days, while a clean-up operation continues. Gerald Celente predicts there will be more oil spills, saying the U.S. is investing more [...]

$275 billion worth of economic drag is already in the pipeline for 2013 without even Obamaquester
President Obama has been so busy proactively blaming Republicans for the allegedly dire consequences of the March 1 sequester that he has failed to notice something far more damaging to the American economy. The tax increases already enacted on Jan. 1 by Congress and the president, coupled with the “tax” of higher fuel prices, altogether mean that about $275 [...]
A pipeline will be laid as soon as possible in the “water farm” project in southern Lincoln County.
Officials want to get the pipeline in operation by June 2013. They will meet Monday in McCook to consider an engineer for the project.
The project, which officially began just six weeks ago, will convert the largest crop farm in Nebraska to a farm from which only water will be harvested.
Conservation officials officially bought [...]
In the wake of the report from the NRDC’s Scott Dodd which revealed that current UN Ambassador and potential new Secretary of State Susan Rice owned millions of stock in Transcanada, the company that wants to build the Keystone Pipeline, we wanted to dig deeper.
In particular, we wanted to take a peek at which stocks boast the most holders in Congress.
As it turns out, the wizards at OpenSecrets have a page set up that shows just that.
Here are [...]
Another massive sinkhole has emerged, this time outside of Dover, Ohio. According to WTOV9, emergency crews have been forced to close down an 8-mile stretch along a road in Tuscarawas County because of the rapidly growing monster.
Officials said the sinkhole is 30-feet deep and as long as four football fields, and it’s still growing. It takes up about half the roadway.
Woman is wondering why the seemingly abnormally high levels of [...]

California drivers may have to wait until November to see any relief at the pump, analysts say.
The state’s gas prices surged 17 cents last night and have spiked 36 cents in the past week.
A confluence of factors have caused Golden State gas prices to jump, including refinery outages and pipeline disruptions.
But the most persistent driver has been the government’s mandate that summer blend gasoline be sold through Oct. 31, AAA [...]

Talking back and breaking dress codes may be normal behavior for school-aged kids, but in Lauderdale County, Mississippi, those minor infractions land students in jail. According to the investigative findings of the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division, the county operates a brutal “school-to-prison pipeline,” where children face repeated incarceration and abuse for the smallest misdeeds, reports CNN.
The federal agency detailed the results of its nine month [...]
The big Chinese news today is out of Qidong, a city of over a million inhabitants one hour north of Shanghai, which has seen widespread protests against an industrial waste pipeline.
Protests in China aren’t rare, but the scale and violence of this protest make it remarkable. Reuters reports that 1,000 protestors marched on government offices, eventually storming and vandalizing them, as well as turning over at least five cars and one minibus.
(Reuters) – Michigan Governor Rick Snyder on Tuesday declared an energy emergency in the state due to temporary shortages of gasoline and diesel fuel in parts of the Upper Peninsula caused by the shutdown of a pipeline in Wisconsin.
The emergency declaration suspends state and federal regulations that limit hours of service for motor carriers and drivers transporting gasoline, diesel fuel and jet fuel to address the shortages, Snyder said in [...]
The decrease in nationwide inventory is an ongoing trend. Keeping supply constricted has clearly helped with pushing prices higher as demand is now competing for a smaller number of homes. A lower mortgage rate has also pushed the monthly payment amount lower thus allowing home buyers to purchase more home with stagnant income levels. The recent employment report should come as no surprise. The recent moves in the housing market [...]
The federal government has at least $70 billion that has languished for years in unspent accounts, never reaching the states, localities, businesses and taxpayers the money was designed to help, according to a new report by Sen. Tom Coburn.
Mr. Coburn, the Senate’s chief waste-watcher, said in many cases politicians and bureaucrats ignored money already in the pipeline and went out to try to corral more funding instead.
This year alone the [...]
Another study has concluded that people who only watch Fox News are less informed than all other news consumers. Researchers at Fairleigh Dickinson University updated a study they had conducted in late 2011. That study only sampled respondents from New Jersey, where the university is located. This time, the researchers conducted a nationwide poll. The poll asked questions about international news (Iran, Egypt, Syria and Greece were included) and domestic affairs (Republican [...]
Mitt Romney’s campaign released its first television commercial of the general election Friday, a spot that outlines a series of “day one” goals for a Romney presidency.
The ad, expected to run in Iowa, Ohio, North Carolina and Virginia, features a narrator speaking over stock footage of the American heartland and Romney on the campaign trail, outlining what “a Romney presidency would be like.”
“Day one, President Romney immediately approves the Keystone pipeline, creating [...]

US home prices have once again made a post-bubble low in spite of all the artificial intervention and massive bailouts to financial institutions. The bottom line unfortunately is that US household incomes have been strained for well over a decade. You can slice it up by nominal or inflation adjusted data but household incomes have been moving in a negative direction during the 00s and continuing into this decade. Keep in mind [...]

LOS ANGELES (MarketWatch) — A Securities and Exchange Commission lawyer inadvertently revealed the identity of a whistleblower during an investigation of Pipeline Trading Systems LLC, The Wall Street Journal reported late Tuesday. The lawyer reportedly showed an executive some notes written by the whistleblower, a former Pipeline Trading affiliate employee named Peter Earle, and the executive recognized the handwritting. Pipeline, which was probed for misleading investors over [...]
In what appears to be surprising news for some, Reuters has an article titled “Americans brace for next foreclosure wave” whose key premise is that “a painful part two of the [housing] slump looks set to unfold: Many more U.S. homeowners face the prospect of losing their homes this year as banks pick up the pace of foreclosures.” Thank the robosettlement, where in exchange for a few wrist slaps, contract law [...]
Well this little universe has gotten some strange movements. Oil from the id west is seeling at almost half of what is being imported. People in the industry are claiming that this oil is land locked and trapped by the lack of the keystone pipeline. I call bull on that one. After all of these years suddenly this supply is so land locked it sells for 1/2? Who is playng [...]
Republicans have in recent weeks waged an all-out blitz against President Barack Obama over the issue of gas prices, but the political benefit could prove fleeting, if and when fuel prices decline.
The steady rise in gas prices this spring provides Republicans with their most immediate example of the pocketbook fleecing suffered by voters, prompting the party to pounce. While some indicators point toward a tentative economic recovery — which could [...]
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Preibus, today on Face the Nation:
Republicans have been in favor of this Keystone pipeline. 20,000 jobs. If there ever was such thing as shovel ready project, here’s one of them. Plus it would get us a step closer to energy independence. It wouldn’t be the whole deal, but its a step closer. And this President has shut down everything when it comes to energy independence in [...]
The number of Americans receiving delinquency notices on their homes rose in February from January, while the backlog of homes in the foreclosure pipeline showed signs of starting to ease, a report said on Thursday.
Default notices were filed for the first time on 58,886 homes last month, up 1 percent from January, though still down 7 percent from February 2011, a report from RealtyTrac showed.
A dozen states saw increases of [...]
Amidst all the political wrangling over the Keystone XL pipeline, some may lose sight of what the fight is ultimately about. And that, of course, is one of the most environmentally devastating projects ever undertaken: the tar sands mining operation in Alberta, Canada. Today, a Reddit user who says he was until recently a well-paid tar sands worker, shared the following video—along with why he quit his job over moral objections [...]
The White House welcomed the company’s decision to move forward with the Gulf Coast part of the pipeline on Monday.
“As the president made clear in January,” it said, “we support the company’s interest in proceeding with this project, which will help address the bottleneck of oil in Cushing that has resulted in large part from increased domestic oil production, currently at an eight-year high.”
“We look forward to working with TransCanada [...]
President Obama does not “accept responsibility” for high gas prices, his spokesman indicated today, arguing that Obama has done everything he could to bring down the price of oil and blaming the high gas prices on oil price increases caused by global factors.
“The president accepts the responsibility that he identified the next president should accept, back in 2008, which is the need to develop a comprehensive energy policy,” White House [...]
