Putting aside Trump DID obstruct justice during Mueller investigation, Dems-& of course its accomplices like @maddow—came off very foolish 2da. 3+ years #RussiaGate obsession while ignoring

1) #FlintWaterCrisis (still a crisis)
2) nearly half country can't afford $400 emergency
@maddow 3) Trump has disregarded a federal judge and granted permit for #KeystoneXL pipeline
4) 5 years later, NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo is still not in jail or off police force for murdering Eric Garner
5) Trump has DOUBLED Obama's drone war
@maddow 6) Contrary to Trump's bs promises, we're currently in a manufacturing recession

The latest plan out from @JayInslee is what real climate leadership looks like. Full stop. It's time we got serious about taking on the out-of-control fossil fuel industy. His Freedom from Fossil Fuels plan does that. oilchangeusa.org/response-insle…
@JayInslee I mean just look at these headers! They're what climate leadership dreams are made of!
@JayInslee Gotta love the shout-out to the first rule of holes. And he's not wrong. We need to #StopFundingFossils. Now.

💣Bomb of the Day💣

Shit’s about to get real:

House Intel is granted leave to intervene in Trump v. Deutsche Bank. House Financial Services Committee too. Maxine Waters and Adam Schiff are going to get to have their say.
🤥Obfuscation🤥
One likely reason Barr wouldn't say if the White House has suggested he open an investigation of anyone

James Comey: How Trump Co-opts Leaders Like Bill Barr

Ben Sasse asked Barr about Deripaska Wednesday & Barr had nothing critical to say
🤥Obfuscation 2🤥

@LindseyGrahamSC asks if Mueller wants to clarify anything Barr said

Barr explicitly called for the government to subsidize Catholic religious education and to promote laws which “restrain sexual immorality”

Venezuela: The Trump Coup — And Our Next Oil War.

[An excerpt from my interview with @jimmy_dore.]

For background read The #KochBrothers, #HugoChavez and the #KeystoneXL Pipeline: gregpalast.com/the-koch-broth…
#Venezuela is #OccupyWallStreet on its head: the 1% are out in the street, violently hoping to overthrow the government elected by working people. Are the Kochs involved? Why not read my reports on Venezuela? gregpalast.com/chavez-maduro-…

A Monday thread if you’ll indulge me… Late last week, I received some odd and unexpected news: @GovRicketts, the governor of Nebraska, doesn’t want you to read my book, THIS BLESSED EARTH. Let me explain. tedgenoways.com
The book was chosen by the Nebraska Center for the Book as this year’s One Book One Nebraska selection—kicked off each year by a ceremonial proclamation from @GovRicketts. This morning, I was supposed to be at the Nebraska State Capitol for the signing, BUT there’s a wrinkle…
.@GovRicketts has refused to sign the proclamation encouraging Nebraskans to read my book. His staff gave no reason when they called the Center to inform them of the decision last week. And @gagetaylor didn’t respond to an email from me.

#Ottawa has not failed #Alberta!!

Watch this video from Oct 15th explaining why #ABoil prices were on the decline.

#BNN US refineries, which have been offline during maintenance work, may help explain the recent decline in Canadian #Oil prices

#CtvNews🎥@JustinTrudeau "In order for a pipeline to come online this week, it would have to be started effectively, under the previous #CPC Gov, & we know that didnt happen, because they didnt have the right approach on pipelines"

#Abpoli #Ableg #Alberta #Cdnpoli #Aboil
Bill C69 or C48 did not delay these piplines. Failed environmental assessments & a lack of sincere #Indigenous consultations caused these delays.

#KeystoneXL (Court delays)
#TMX delayed (IC)
#EnergyEast cancelled
#NorthernGateway delayed (IC)

BREAKING: A federal judge ruled that the Trump administration violated bedrock environmental laws when approving #KeystoneXL tar sands pipeline!

The judge blocked any construction and ordered the government to revise its environmental review.
This decision is a significant setback for a pipeline that would be a disaster for the climate, people and wildlife.
“As the court has made clear yet again, the Trump administration’s flawed and dangerous proposal should be shelved forever.” — Jackie Prange, @NRDC senior attorney

Yesterday, the #KeystonePipeline cracked and dumped 210,000 gallons of oil onto South Dakota prairie. Here’s the reason the pipeline burst... gregpalast.com/pig-burst-keys… #KeystoneXL #KeystoneSpill #NoKXL
The PIG (Pipeline Inspection Gauge) that is sent through the #KeystonePipeline to check for evidence of any weakness didn’t squeal a warning. Why not? Because, the PIG has been silenced — its software jacked and hacked gregpalast.com/pig-burst-keys… #KeystoneSpill
Note: We've obtained independent confirmation of this from not one, not two, but THREE software engineers who designed the PIG "warning" system gregpalast.com/pig-burst-keys… #KeystoneXL #KeystonePipeline #KeystoneSpill #NoKXL
