Another Health Care "Debate"! Obama delayeded his plans to visit to Indonesia and Australia to concentrate on getting the Health Care Corporate Giveaway , errr um, the "Affordable Health Care for America Act" (HR 3962) which is really the Senate's "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act" (H.R. 3590) passed before Congress takes a Spring Break. The WH limo thus gears up for another push to get their signature "Health Reform" bill with DAVID AXELROD gabbing it up on Meet the David, State of Candy and This Guest Host while his sidekick ROBERT GIBBS gets dropped off at Face the Bob and FAKE NEWS Sunday. Throw bricks at KARL ROVE on MTP and FNS! The Obstructionist Party sends out LINDSEY GRAHAM to This Guest Host, LAMAR ALEXANDER to FTN, JAMES CLYBURN on MTP, JOHN "Crybaby" BOEHNER on Candy Nation and ERIC CANTOR on False News to discuss the same talking points they've worn out for too long, no doubt citing the same tired "solutions" like the "magic hand of the free market", cross-state "competition", capping medical malpractice lawsuit awards and so forth while the hosts blithely let them stammer on without one bit of fact-checking on any of their claims. What they WON'T be discussing is Jay "Clean Coal" Rockefeller pushes to rein in EPA from the Washington Post: Sen. John D. Rockefeller (D-WVa.) will introduce legislation Thursday to impose a two-year moratorium on the Environmental Protection Agency's ability to regulate greenhouse gases from power plants and other stationary emitters, a move that could undermine the Obama administration's plan to pursue a cap on carbon emissions in the face of congressional opposition. Rockefeller's bill pdf, one of several recent congressional efforts to curb the EPA's authority to address climate change under the Clean Air Act, highlights the resistance the administration will face if it attempts to limit carbon dioxide through regulation. Obama and his top deputies have repeatedly said they would prefer for Congress to set mandatory, nationwide limits on greenhouse gas emissions, but the EPA is moving ahead with plans to do so if legislation fails to pass this year. "Today, we took important action to safeguard jobs, the coal industry, and the entire economy as we move toward clean coal technology," Rockefeller said. "This legislation will issue a two-year suspension on EPA regulation of greenhouse gases from stationary sources (aka COAL FIRED PLANTS! Not like MOBILE sources like coal-fired STEAM ENGINES! -Ed.) --giving Congress the time it needs (the time it needs for Big Coal to craft THEIR FAVORABLE LEGISLATION. -Ed.) to address an issue as complicated and expansive as our energy future. Congress, not the EPA, must be the ideal decision-maker on such a challenging issue." That is, J ROCK IV wants to STOP the EPA from even BEGINNING ANY INVESTIGATIONS on this. FOR TWO YEARS! Call your pols! Check out our regular lineup and BTV Alerts with DENNIS KUCINICH on DN, former AAR host JON ELIOT on PBC, Rolling Stone's TIM DICKINSON on Ring of Fire plus Raw Story's LARISA ALEXANDROVNA on AntiWar Radio and JOE WEISENTHAL of Business Insider on the Keiser Report and so much more good info and discussion. The Brick TeeVee Crew has been enjoying the Mid America Conference Men's Hoops tourney, especially since the No. 9 seed (and our old haunt) Ohio University blazed through the MAC field with a first-round overtime road win at eighth-seeded Ball State culminating in an 81-75 overtime victory over the Akron Zips, earning an automatic spot in the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. Plus we're also enjoying Indians Spring Training in the Cactus League where they lead the league in ERA with a spiffy 3.11 Of course, it's only Spring Training and this pitching staff has more question marks than answers with their slated Opening Day pitcher (Westbrook) who hasn't pitched in the bigs since 2008 and their No. 2 guy (Carmona) having spent most of 2009 in the LOW minors! We shall see as Opening Day is 21 days away! Enjoy your Sunday!

    Listen at Antiwar Radio
    Scott Horton interviews Larisa Alexandrovna (mp3) 49:55 March 12 2010. Larisa Alexandrovna, Managing Editor of investigative news for RawStory, discusses the lies told about the US push for war with Iraq in Karl Rove’s new book, how the Bush administration “fixed the facts” around their Iraq policy, US bellicosity on Iran that is meant to assuage Israel’s fears of a competing regional power, Russian geopolitical successes against lightweight US strategists, why purple fingers are not necessarily indicative of democracy, the media’s obsession with “balance” at the expense of presenting facts or telling the truth and the difficult task of assigning appropriate blame to the public and media for complicity in Iraq War lies.
    Scott Horton interviews Raed Jarrar (mp3) 50:12 March 12 2010. Raed Jarrar, Iraq consultant for the American Friends Service Committee, discusses the Iraqi political landscape in the wake of recent elections, the reemergence of former Prime Minister Ayad Allawi in a popular non-sectarian nationalist coalition, how the US occupation has distorted Iraqi politics and prevented the formation of functional government, unfounded fears that a US withdrawal will incite a civil war and why Iraq’s “sectarian” strife is better understood as a political struggle between nationalists and separatists than a religious fight between Sunni and Shia.
