Judge Reinstates Obama-Era Ban On Coal Sales On Federal Lands

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

A federal judge on Friday reinstated a moratorium on coal leasing on federal lands that had been put in place during the Obama administration.

The ban was lifted under former President Donald Trump.

Friday’s ruling by U.S. District Judge Brian Morris requires government officials to conduct another environmental review before resuming coal sales from federal lands. The judge said the government’s previous review of the program under the Trump administration had failed to adequately consider the climate damage caused by coal’s greenhouse gas emissions, among other effects.

Nearly half of the country’s annual coal production is extracted by private companies from leases on federal lands, mostly in western states including Wyoming, Montana and Colorado.

FLINT WATER TRIAL: JUDGE DECLARES MISTRIAL AFTER VERDICT CANNOT BE REACHED

A federal judge reinstated a moratorium on coal leasing on federal lands that was imposed under former President Barack Obama and then scuttled under former President Donald Trump, Friday, August 12, 2022.

Burning coal for electricity is one of the largest sources of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States despite the closure of a number of power plants over the past decade due to concerns about pollution and changing economic conditions.

According to government data, the coal program brought in about $400 million to federal and state coffers through royalties and other payments last year. The program is responsible for thousands of jobs and has the support of industry representatives, GOP members of Congress and officials in coal-producing states.

President Joe Biden had suspended oil and gas lease sales during his first week in office, although such a move was later blocked by a federal judge. And environmental groups have pressured him to take similar action against coal.

Last year, the Biden administration began a review of the climate damage caused by coal mining on federal lands as it increased scrutiny of government fossil fuel sales that contribute to greenhouse gas emissions. Greenhouse. However, no changes have been announced as a result of this review.

“This decision gives the Biden administration an opportunity to deliver on its commitment to seriously address the climate crisis,” said Earthjustice attorney Jenny Harbine, who represented environmental groups and the Northern Cheyenne tribe in the case, about the decision. “No progress has been made to reform the program or do what is necessary to phase out existing leases.”

“This is a deeply disappointing decision, with energy-related inflation, energy affordability and energy security being top concerns for Americans,” Nolan said. “Denying access to affordable and secure energy during an energy affordability crisis is deeply troubling.”

Peleton Will Raise Prices And Cut Jobs

Peleton raises prices

Peleton, a poster child for the Covid period, was forced to cut prices upon reopening, but is now raising them by $800 to $3495 (is that correct). At the same time, they are cutting 800 jobs, outsourcing deliveries and closing stores.

“Obama’s Documents Were Processed Correctly”

Fox News/Screenshot

As it becomes increasingly clear that Donald Trump may have violated the Espionage Act by storing ‘top secret’ government documents in his private residence, the former president has turned to a familiar excuse : Obama did it too.

“President Barack Hussein Obama kept 33 million pages of documents, most of which are classified. How many of them were nuclear? The word is, a lot! Asset job on his social media platform on Friday.

But soon after, Fox News’ top political anchor Bret Baier went to great lengths to inform viewers that Trump’s whataboutism is without merit.

“There is a process,” Baier explained, noting that President Obama “followed these processes to get these documents to Chicago.” Although “there was a lot of grumbling that they weren’t posted as promised,” he said, “the way they were handled was done by that process.”

“President Obama’s documents were handled properly,” Baier added. “And the question is, is there a paper trail and a process for these documents if that’s what Trump’s lawyers and the former president are arguing.”

Specifically, Trump claims he personally “declassified” all of the documents in question, citing the story of Michael Scott. declaration of bankruptcy on Office— but as Baier also noted on Fox Friday afternoon, it’s not that simple.

“Now it’s a great power that the president has, a broad power to declassify, but there are also regulations that have to, a process has to take place,” he explained. “It’s not like you’re waving a magic wand and saying all these boxes are declassified.”

Minnesota State Poet Laureate Gwen Westerman is one of 22 poet laureates named fellows by the Academy of American Poets, which will give each laureate $50,000. The fellows were chosen on the basis of positive contributions to their communities in these roles and beyond. The money is to be used by the recipients for public poetry programs in the year ahead as presented to the academy by their proposals.

Westerman, the first indigenous Minnesota poet laureate, is the author of “Follow the Blackbirds” (Michigan State University Press, 2013), a poetry collection written in Dakota and English. She teaches American and Native Nations literature, technical communication and humanities at Minnesota State University, Mankato.

In collaboration with the Minnesota Center for the Book, Westerman will use her Fellowship money for Poets in the Park, a program to  engage underserved Minnesota youth in grades five through eight with art and nature through three summer workshops at regional state parks, where students will write poetry about their relationships to the land. She will work with poet Michael Torres and graduate students in the creative writing program at Minnesota State University to bring these young people to inspiring landscapes and encourage them to write poems in English and their home languages on the beauty of the state parks.

In addition to the three workshops, there will be a statewide call for students to write a poem about their favorite state park that will be part of a digital anthology that includes the poems from the summer workshops. The anthology will be published through a free, online resource: MN Writes MN Reads. Poetry in the Parks will be promoted widely through both statewide and local networks.

Ultra-Conservatives In Iran, Pakistan And Syria Celebrate Attack On Rushdie

Eghtesad Salem, a conservative news site, published a column saying the attack sent a clear message to US officials. He said they would be hunted for the assassination of Iran’s top general, Qassim Suleimani, who died in a US airstrike in January 2020.

New Delhi: The assailant who attacked British author Salman Rushdie at a literary event at the Chautauqua Institution in New York on Friday has been identified as Hadi Matar, 24, of Fairview, New Jersey, by police. He was arrested at the scene and awaiting arraignment.

Matar was born a decade after “The Satanic Verses” was published. The motive for the attack is unclear, State Police Maj. Eugene Staniszewski said.

Iran, Syria and Pakistan celebrate

Meanwhile, as the world continues to try to come to terms with the attack and the message it sends to artists, writers and supporters of creative freedom, Iran’s ultra-conservative newspaper Kayhan on Saturday hailed the attacker who attacked British author Salman Rushdie, the target of a 1989 Iranian fatwa calling for his death.

Rushdie was on a fan after being stabbed at a literary event in New York state on Friday, more than 30 years after going into hiding following the fatwa of former Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini .

“Congratulations to this courageous and duty-conscious man who attacked the apostate and depraved Salman Rushdie in New York,” writes the newspaper, whose leader is appointed by the current Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

“Let us kiss the hands of the one who tore the neck of the enemy of God with a knife”, adds the daily.

With the exception of reformist publications whose Etemadthe majority of Iranian media followed a similar line, describing Rushdie as an “apostate”.

Government supporters hailed the stabbings, saying it is Khomeini’s fatwa finally materializing after 33 years. Some said they hoped the author, who was knighted in 2007 in Britain “for services to literature”, died following the brutal attack.

Others warned that those seen as enemies of the Islamic Republic would suffer the same fate as him.

A quote from Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s current leader, was reportedly shared online with him saying the fatwa against Rushdie was “fired like a bullet that won’t stop until it reaches his target”.

The Daily mail reports, Iran’s conservative pundit Keyvan Saedy said on Twitter: “This deserves congratulations: God willing, we will soon celebrate Salman Rushdie going to hell.”

Hossein Saremi, a conservative social media activist, added that a “lion” beat Rushdie and that the attacker was part of the “soldiers of Islam without borders”. He wrote: “Revenge may be delayed, but it will inevitably come”.

A senior adviser to Iran’s nuclear negotiating team, Seyed Mohammad Marandi, said he would not shed a tear for the writer ‘who unleashes endless hatred and contempt for Muslims and Islam “.
Several accounts affiliated with the Revolutionary Guards, which Matar was reportedly sympathetic to, openly bragged about the attack.

news from syria posted a message saying, “The order was executed in a place they never thought of. It doesn’t matter if he doesn’t die; it is important that they understand that the battle is not over.

Eghtesad Salem, a conservative news site published a column saying the attack sent a clear message to US officials. He said they would be hunted for the assassination of Iran’s top general, Qassim Suleimani, who died in a US airstrike in January 2020.

Majid Motamedi wrote: “The execution of the order to assassinate Salman Rushdie 33 years after it was issued sends a message to US officials that they must fear revenge from Iran against General ‘Qassim Suleimani, until their death, even if revenge takes 33 years.’

However, Iranian authorities have yet to make any official comment on the stabbing attack on Rushdie.

In Pakistan a Dawn journalist Ali Waqar came out in favor of Matar. He tweeted:

49Ers Fans Pump Up Levi'S Stadium With Preseason Energy

SANTA CLARA (KPIX) — San Francisco 49ers fans weren’t disappointed with the energy at Levi’s Stadium for Friday night’s preseason opener.

Many said they were proud to be born as Faithful Niners.

“We were raised two blocks from Candlestick Park, for 25 years. We used to sell our garage and parking spaces to all the Candlesticks – all the 49ers fans,” said Saga Vae of San Francisco. “We are here, we share the blessings.”

“We were just here to support the Niners. We’re from the city of San Francisco. We just gotta represent our home team! You gotta show it. We just show them what the Bay Area is,” said Jojo Vae from San Francisco.

The preseason opener was also about eating game day favorites, sporting the red and gold and starting them young.

“Our tradition started last year just after they started letting people back into games and we got hooked on it,” said Shaleek Finley who takes his 6-year-old son Elisha to the games.

Elisha had the chance to do some kid-friendly training drills before the doors opened.

That’s when KPIX cameras caught eager fans running up the stairs to enter Levi’s Stadium.

“The first pre-season game we put out – we just wanted to know what Trey Lance looked like. So far we’ve been looking great,” Pittsburg boss Tagaloa said.

“We rode an hour and a half just to be here today and we are delighted to sit closer to the peloton today,” said Araceli Ramirez of Manteca.

Even Green Bay Packers fans like Modesto’s Janny Guzman brought their little ones to make memories.

When asked what it was like to be in the minority, Guzman replied, “We keep walking. Smiling.”
