Out d'Coup | Destination Climate Crash; Flynn to Testify?; Scott Wagner is Not a Scientist; Ithaca Adjuncts Win Big; Philly Troublemakers; and, more!
It’s Friday, March 31, 2017. I am Kevin Mahoney, editor and founder of Raging Chicken Press. Each week I talk to our Capitol muckraker-in-chief, Sean Kitchen, about the good, the bad, and the ugly in state and national politics.
This week in Trumplandia: The drama and stakes ramp up in DC. Michael Flynn to testify if given immunity. Nunes subplot thickens. Senate intelligence committee says they won’t play games with investigation. Bye-bye to your limited privacy protections on the Internet. Farewell, to the clean energy plan. On the other side of the ledger, Maryland bans fracking. But in PA, Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf and the PA DEP approves two new injection wells - think Oklahoma earthquakes and becomes a booster in favor of bring four more ethane cracker plants to the Keystone state.
Pennsylvania upping the ante on anti-climate crazy. Wanna-be Governor on PA, Scott Wagner, says people just need to take a cold shower, and we’ll be fine. Wagners campaign manager wants to make sure we know that Scottie is not a scientist. I repeat not a scientist. Philadelphia DA race getting interesting - civil rights attorney throws his hat in. Right-wing, billionaire backed think tank hacks in PA beg Sean to take their picture. Lancaster Stand keeps the trainings going, but postpones occupation as pipeline tied up in court. Ithaca college contingent faculty win big. Great weekend at Philly Labor Notes Troublemakers School. I talked APSCUF strike. Meanwhile PASSHE starts the retrenchment ball rolling.
