CBS' Reid didn't note that experts, including Energy Dept., have rebutted assertion that expanded offshore drilling "will bring prices down"

Old and Senile McCain's Gimmick on oil prices

** Move On **
McCain thinks offshore drilling will be the issue that wins him the White House. He has ads up now blaming Barack Obama for high gas prices, and touting drililng as a miracle cure for our energy woes. He is preying on people's anxieties about energy prices -- and it is working. If we don't fight back now, and make sure people know offshore drilling is a gimmick that won't work, we could end up losing the election AND the fight for clean energy.

Support our new ad "Gimmick" -- it tells the truth about offshore drilling, and is a powerful counter to McCain's attacks.

Old and Senile McCain Ignores the small details...

** Yahoo News **

Details can bedevil any presidential candidate. Repulsive Republican Pig John McCain announced this week that he backs an anti-affirmative action referendum that has drawn sharp debate in Arizona, his home state. Then he added a curious note: He doesn't know that much about it.

And when McCain was asked earlier this month about insurance coverage for Viagra but not contraceptives, he admitted he wasn't sure about that issue, though he had once voted against requiring coverage for birth-control pills.

Old and Senile McCain: Whore to Oil Companies

** Move On **
Standing before a room of oil company executives in June, old and senile John McCain flip-flopped and declared support for coastal oil drilling. Now the Washington Post is reporting that, within days, oil and gas execs ponied up nearly $1 million to elect old and senile McCain. It's another piece of evidence that in a old and senile McCain White House, oil companies will call the shots—just as they have with Monkey King Bush.

Old and senile McCain's hoping to use gas prices as a wedge issue to win the election. That's why it's so critical that we keep spreading the message that old and senile McCain's been heavily influenced by the oil companies—and so we can't count on him to solve the energy crisis. When people think of Monkey King Bush, they think "oil," but that's not true of old and senile McCain yet—even though his energy policy is almost identical to monkey King Bush's and his campaign is literally run by oil lobbyists!

With gas prices at over $4 per gallon, every member of Congress is feeling the pressure to support more drilling. The risk to our sensitive public lands and offshore waters has never been higher.

This week Congress may vote to lift the decades-old ban on offshore drilling off the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, accelerate leasing in Alaskan waters, or sacrifice the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in a quest for more oil. Some elected officials are also talking about rushing headlong towards an oil shale program that could spell disaster for up to two million acres of public lands in Wyoming, Colorado and Utah.

American consumers need a real solution. Despite a multi-million dollar lobbying campaign from oil companies to convince the nation otherwise, the public is increasingly in agreement with experts who assert that opening vast amounts of public lands and waters will not lower the prices we face at the pump.

The "drill everywhere" approach would, however, leave our lands irrevocably changed, prolong our nation's addiction to oil, and postpone critically important investment in alternative, clean energy technologies.

Your help is urgently needed. Tell Congress to reject this "drill everywhere" approach right now.

** Center for American Progress **
Although a majority of the House voted for selling oil from our Strategic Petroleum Reserve, a narrow minded, short sighted conservative minority in the House was able to block this essential energy price relief bill just to keep prices high and oil companies rich. Their proposed solution to drill for oil in protected places is running on empty since this will not produce oil or ease economic suffering for a decade or more. That's not going to help anyone who really needs help.

But if you email your senators, you can persuade them to pass this needed relief when they take it up before the August recess.

Please email your senators to support selling oil from our Strategic Petroleum Reserve and using the profits to invest in low carbon energy solutions. Tell them not to let anyone block this effort to help hard working American families.

At a time when fisheries are suffering, and environmental review and public feedback on fisheries management are crucial, the Bush administration is proposing to make an end run around both -- which could have catastrophic effects on management of crucial resources such as sea turtles, corals, and valuable fish populations.

Instead of streamlining environmental review of fisheries management, the Fisheries Service's proposed rule creates a cumbersome system that makes compliance difficult. In addition, the proposed rule makes it hard for citizens to weigh in by vastly shortening public comment periods from a mandatory 45 days to as little as two weeks, and introduces multiple new ways for fishery managers to avoid environmental review and public participation entirely. Moreover, the rule would put environmental review authority in the hands of fishery management councils -- advisory bodies largely made up of appointed members with significant financial interests in the fisheries they manage -- rather than the agency accountable to the public for the state of our fisheries.

The Fisheries Service's proposed rule threatens the health of our fisheries and the public's ability to do anything about it. Worse yet, it sets an ominous precedent for the government to roll back crucial NEPA requirements for other categories of agency actions across both land and sea.

Please tell the agency to take back these flawed regulations and develop new regulations that comply with the spirit and letter of the Act.

Oil companies and their allies in Congress claim that drilling in America's oceans and coastal areas would help solve the energy crisis and have proposed ending the 27-year moratorium on new offshore drilling. But offshore drilling would neither solve our energy needs nor significantly lower gas prices. Instead, drilling would harm America's economy, health, oceans and coasts.

Proponents of offshore drilling claim it would reduce gas prices, even though the Department of Energy has determined that it would not significantly do so. Oil companies currently have 5,500 offshore leases they are not drilling, and with 80 percent of the untapped oil in offshore areas already open to development, they do not need access to more areas to increase supply. And while the U.S. oil industry says it wants even more access to sensitive ocean areas to reduce reliance on foreign suppliers, American-based companies are shipping record amounts of gasoline and diesel fuel to other countries. This proposal is simply a way to give oil companies unfettered drilling access to our oceans and coastal areas.

In addition, opening up additional offshore areas to drilling poses real threats to our ocean and coastal ecosystems and economies. Offshore drilling creates toxic waste products that contaminate fish and marine life. Offshore wells emit air pollutants that are known carcinogens, cause respiratory problems and worsen global warming. And current cleanup methods can only remove a small fraction of oil spilled in marine waters, where it is toxic for most species.

America needs real, long-term solutions for the energy crisis, but oil companies and their allies are not delivering them. We need to use less oil by improving energy efficiency and utilizing renewable energy. In doing so, we can achieve energy independence, fight global warming, and jump-start our nation's economy

Tell Congress not to allow drilling off our coasts

** Senator Barbara Boxer **
Recently, running contrary to every shred of common sense, President Bush lifted the presidential moratorium on drilling for oil off our precious coastline. And now he wants Congress to lift the moratorium as well.

In the final months of his failed presidency, George Bush wants to give the oil companies a huge gift that threatens our coasts, our economy, and our jobs -- while not doing one single thing to lower gas prices.

Tell my colleagues in Congress to stand firm: Sign my petition to the House and Senate leadership, urging them not to lift the Congressional moratorium on offshore drilling!


** Human Rights Campaign **

Former Senator Jesse Helms (widely known racist, sexist, homophobic right-wing pig), the notorious author of dozens of measures attacking GLBT and HIV-positive people during his years in the Senate, died on July 4 (Good riddance!). Unfortunately, the legacy of discrimination against HIV-positive people he helped to create lives on in a law that bars nearly every foreign person with HIV from entering the United States. That's right – with very few exceptions, an HIV-positive individual cannot come to the United States for any reason, be it to visit, work, study or become a legal resident.

It's an embarrassment and an outrage. And at long last, we have a chance to bring it to an end.

Ask your Senator to stand up against bias and ensure that the ban on HIV-positive visitors and immigrants is repealed.

Senator Joe Lieberman (I-CT) has become much too friendly with Pastor John Hagee, the same man who preached that Hitler was only doing God's bidding.

Tell Sen. Lieberman to immediately withdraw his commitment to deliver the keynote address at Hagee's Israel Summit on July 22.

Ignoring own reporting, AP claimed old and senile McCain "is respected by many Hispanics for refusing to pander to anti-immigrant sentiment"

Discussing old and senile McCain's immigration flip-flop, MSNBC's right-wing whore Contessa Brewer asked, "[H]ow is that really changing?"

Faux News right-wing whore Bill O'Reilly claimed "when Katrina hit, none of the oil rigs spilled in Louisiana," but didn't note that 5,552 barrels spilled into Gulf.

July 14, 2008 -- Your Fight the Right-Wing Wacko Links of the Day.

** Sierra Club **
Last week governors across the West convened at the Western Governors' Association conference in Wyoming. At this conference your governor pledged to protect the West’s most important wildlife corridors from oil and gas drilling. As you know, elk, deer, pronghorn and other wildlife require habitat protected from oil and gas drilling.

We now need to ask U.S. Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne to support our governors in their attempts to control drilling and protect wildlife.

Oil and gas drilling has exploded across the West, disrupting the lives and traditions of people and wildlife here. It is time for some balance to be restored in managing our lands and resources.

Ask Secretary Kempthorne to support protections for the West's wildlife corridors now!

** Fox Attacks **You're not going to believe what FOX is up to now-we could hardly believe it ourselves. Not only are they smearing Michelle Obama with racist stereotypes, but then they offer a feeble apology that they believe gives them the right to slander her again. That's what happened when FOX called Michelle and Barack Obama's fist bump a "terrorist fist jab," apologized, and then less than a week later referred to Michelle Obama as Barack's "Baby Mama."

FOX's long history of racism is nothing new, but it has been particularly egregious when it comes to their coverage of the Obamas. Racism and fearmongering have no place in our country or its politics, despite what FOX would have you believe. That's why we put together this video, FOX Attacks Michelle Obama.

We cannot allow FOX's heinous smears and scare tactics to continue. Sign our petition and stop FOX from injecting racism, prejudice, and fear into our political dialogue.

** Save our Environment **
Anti-environmentalists in Congress are adding amendments to every bill they can get their hands on, calling for drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, many offshore areas, and other sensitive regions—even to bills that aren't remotely related to energy!

Drilling is NOT the answer to our energy crisis.

Tell your members of Congress that we must pursue clean, renewable energy alternatives. Drilling in the Arctic and off our beaches will only perpetuate our dependence on dirty fossil fuels and slow progress towards a clean energy future.

Now, only the very stupid and ignorant jerkwads would actually believe this crap coming from Faux news. WTF is wrong with the lemmings out there that listen to Faux News?

MSNBC's racist pig Chris Matthews: "They're the working-class white voters ... the regular folks"

Does not even try to hide his racist attitudes. Of course, like most racist pigs, they don't even get the fact they are racist pigs.

Faux News airs altered photos of NY Times reporters.

Or alternative headlines: Lying Bitches get caught yet again!

Convicted drug addict and Viagra Abuse Fats Limbaugh again invoked discredited Fort Marcy Park smear of Clintons.

Keep lying fat assed limpy! Only your ignorant lemmings are believing you now Convict.

Racist pig Michael "The Whiner" Savage repeatedly referred to Pelosi as Mussolini, called her "the Mussolini in a skirt".

This moron certainly has a lot of knowledge of his fascists...

July 01, 2008 -- Your Fight the Right-Wing Wacko Links of the Day.

** Rain Forest Action Network **
Peabody Coal -- the largest coal company in the world -- is exploiting government loopholes to re-open the permitting process for expanded coal mining on Dineh (Navajo) and Hopi reservations in the Black Mesa of northeastern Arizona. Peabody is funded by Citi and Bank of America, and we only have until July 7 to stop the company's new mining plan.

Our friends and partners from the Black Mesa Water Coalition have requested that we join them in this pivotal moment to stop Peabody from continuing its 30-year tradition of environmental racism in the Black Mesa. In addition to mining the region for coal, Peabody has drained more than 4,600 acre-feet of Navajo and Hopi drinking water every year from 1971-2006 in order to transport coal as slurry to a coal-fired power plant in Nevada. If Peabody gets the permit to expand its mining operations, the company will start draining water yet again!

Send a letter to the Office of Surface Mining, Reclamation and Enforcement now opposing the plan!

Have You Driven a Ford Lately?
Pop Quiz: Which vehicle has better fuel economy:
The 1927 Model T Ford or the 2007 Ford Taurus?
Highlight below for the shocking answer!

The 1927 Model T got 28.5 MPG. The 2007 Taurus gets 20 MPG.

Sign our petition to Ford CEO Alan Mulally, Secretary of Transportation Mary Peters and your Senators to demand more fuel-efficient vehicles. We will deliver the petition when we have 2,500 signatures, so please insure that we will have enough signatures by forwarding this petition to your friends and family.

Public Citizen is not asking Ford to bring back the Model T; it was an unacceptably unsafe vehicle. However, many technologies exist that can make vehicles both safer and more fuel-efficient. As Americans struggle to buy the necessities of life because of the astronomical cost of gas, we must demand vehicles that are more fuel-efficient and use alternative fuel sources.

** Change to Win **

America's workers are putting in more hours than ever and still struggling to make ends meet. Meanwhile, corporate CEOs enjoy salaries 180 times higher than their average employees.

So how do we level the playing field and get our economy back on track? Good union jobs are the place to start. The Employee Free Choice Act can help restore the American Dream by making it easier for workers to form unions. Support this bill and help us reach one million signatures!

Faux News right-wing whore Molly Henneberg deceptively cropped Clark interview while claiming Clark "seemed to attack McCain's military service".

Absolutely typical of the lying assess of the Repulsive Republican Pigs out there.

CNN's American Morning co-anchor whore Kiran Chetry deceptively cropped Clark interview.

I wonder why the right-wing wackos have to "edit" out their interviews??

MSNBC's whore Monica Novotny falsely claimed Clark "blasted McCain's military record"

Faux News' whore Eric Shawn falsely claimed, "General Clark said that Mr. McCain does not serve in a wartime squadron".

Print reports on Clark's comments didn't note that McCain camp's response included lying asshole and discredited Swift Boat Vet Bud Day.
