CAGE MATCH SPECIAL! The WH Limo drops off VEEP JOE BIDEN on This Tapper, fresh off his trip to Afghanistan. The Cage Matches begin with former Clinton Press Sec DEE DEE MYERS facing off against gwb's former Comm Dir NICOLE WALLACE (yer askin' "WHO?" yeah us too). Then warm up the DVR for a face-off between NAACP pres BENJAMIN JEALOUS and tea bagger leader DAVID WEBB on Face the Bob. State of the Candy matches minority Senate poobah MITCH MCCONNELL against the clever House majority poobah STENY HOYER. Fake Snooze gets Majority Whip JAMES CLYBURN to battle wits with witless House Repub Conference chair MIKE PENCE. (Ever notice how Pence's IN-6 district abuts JOHN "Crybaby" BOEHNER's OH-8 district on the OH-IN border? Scary.) Finally, this Sunday's FEATURE TAG TEAM MATCH will be on Meet the David where NRSC's JOHN CORNYN & NRCC's PETE SESSIONS take on DSCC's BOB MENENDEZ & DCCC'S CHRIS VAN HOLLEN. Watch them all vie for coporate $$$$$$ SOUNDBITES with basically the same pro-corporate ideas, worded a bit diferently. Man do THEY EVER take us for sheep! Get BTV points for every time the word "socialist" comes up. And throw bricks at will! BTV calls it D's 6 R's 5 with many ties, two sides of the same corporate coin. To illustrate this evident truth go watch Reniassance 2.0: Lesson 6 (part 2 of 3). Learn how American Politics, "Trickle-down" Chicago-School economics, the MIC and Uber-National corporations really function in only eight minutes! (h/t msgeaux) Fantastic interviews on Ring of Fire with Guest Host SAM SEDER featuring interviews with The Nation's ERIC ALTERMAN and Harper's FRED KAUFMAN plus author of "How to Cool the Planet" and "Big Coal" Jeff Goodell, Bob Kincaid busts a gut with Joe "Blazing Saddles" Manchin, PBC has more Gitmo coverage, ANTIWAR Radio covers the Israel-Palestine issue PLUS GLENN GREENWALD, also on Democracy NOW! More BTV alerts have a MUST WATCH with SEAN PENN plus Rolling Stone's MATT TAIBBI and Harper's KEN SILVERSTEIN and also FREDERICK KAUFMAN. Speaking of Rolling Stone see Tim Dickinson's BP's Next Disaster where we learn about Bleeding Pollutant's (BP) "Liberty" "on-shore" Alaska drilling project and also that The White House contends that MMS is simply "finalizing paperwork" from bids submitted prior to the disaster. But environmentalists are aghast. "These new leases are based on the same fundamentally flawed and patently illegal environmental analyses used to greenlight Deepwater Horizon," says Mike Senatore of Defenders of Wildlife, which filed suit against MMS in June to block the expansion of drilling. "This agency is at the epicenter of the worst environmental disaster in history, and yet it's still going about business as usual.". Nice. Catch all of MAX to get up to speed on the worldwide "belt-tightening" looming economic collapse! The Brick TeeVee crew has been shoring up the fences but they were breached again and the green/yellow/red pepper crop is not looking good. Everything else, from Beans to Zucchini, are going bonkers! We hope your Victory Gardens are plentiful too!

Offshore Drilling is Not The Answer: Restore the Moratorium
from Surfrider Foundation (h/t jen)
The tragic and devastating oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is a stark reminder that offshore oil drilling is not the answer.
The Deepwater Horizon rig that exploded and sank has spilled millions of gallons of oil into the ecologically rich waters in the Gulf of Mexico and continues to gush 210,000 gallons of oil into the sea every day. The spill remains unabated and now has the potential to become one of the worst environmental disasters in U.S. history. The unfolding catastrophe clearly illustrates that offshore drilling is not safe and new technology is not fool proof.
Tell the Obama Administration new drilling is NOT THE ANSWER. Our coasts and the economy they support cannot withstand anymore!
We are reminded why the 1969 oil spill in Santa Barbara and the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill led to state and federal moratoriums on offshore oil drilling. The tragedy in the Gulf of Mexico makes it clear that it is time once again time to restore those moratoriums.

    Info on Podcast #151 Published on 13 July 2010 by admin in Podcast Info -- Gitmo, still open; an Israeli whitewash; Obama’s “disgusting” policies.

    Info on Podcast #152 Published on 07 July 2010 by admin in Podcast Info -- BP’s blowout: a view from Florida’s Gulf coast; Karl Rove’s “biggest mistake”; FCC obscenity ban overturned. Author H.P. Albarelli, Jr. joins us from his oil-free beach just west of Tampa Bay on the Gulf coast of Florida. He talks about his recent piece for about the disaster, which leads to broader criticism of Obama’s weak leadership on this crisis, poor appointments, and failure to bounce Bush appointees. Albarelli also talks about an outbreak of dengue fever in Key West, which is one of the locations where the CIA tested dengue as a weapon in the 1950’s; he points out that the symptoms of dengue are very similar to the symptoms of people who are exposed to oil dispersant chemicals like Corexit. His powerful book about US chemical and biological warfare efforts is called A Terrible Mistake: The Murder of Frank Olson and the CIA’s Secret Cold War Experiments. His article on dengue fever will appear soon at PBC comments on Karl Rove’s Wall St. Journal column July 15 entitled “My Biggest Mistake in the White House”. Rove tries to make the case that Bush didn’t lie about WMD in Iraq, with more lies. And your humble host closes with a string of obscenities that have been broadcast on TV, as an appeals court overturned the ban on “fleeting expletives”. Warning: f-bombs in this podcast!
