[WASHINGTONEXAMINER] Chase Power, the parent company behind the $3 billion Las Brisas coal power plant in Corpus Christi, Texas, announced yesterday that it was cancelling the project.
"Chase Power ... has opted to suspend efforts to further permit the facility and is seeking alternative investors as part of a plan of dissolution for the parent company," Chase CEO Dave Freysinger told the Corpus Christi Caller-Times.
Freysinger made it very clear who was responsible for the projects death. "The (Las Brisas Energy Center) is a victim of EPA's concerted effort to stifle solid-fuel energy facilities in the U.S., including EPA's carbon-permitting requirements and EPA's New Source Performance Standards for new power plants," he said.

Its the Consumer Finance Protection hardjob which is big, as I understand this project could not receive any funds until a head was appointed. NLRB rulings will be interesting as well - the Boeing Plant decision falls within this time frame.
[LATIMES] In a strident and sweeping State of the State address, Gov. Jerry Governor Moonbeam Brown ... those who ignore history are bound to repeat it ... declared Thursday morning that "Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party, did the impossible," bouncing back from the precipice of fiscal collapse to emerge as an economic leader.
With references to the Bible, the history of the Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party, republic and Irish poet William Butler Yeats, Brown mapped out a vision for the state that includes big investment in its water and rail systems and schools free of regulations that he says inhibit flexibility and creativity.

California is as close to falling off the fiscal cliff as any state in the union. talk about an administration that has got no grip on reality ... it's our Dearly Beloved State Of California.
Now comes the big payout. Whereupon they tell the rest of us that we have to stand good for California's mismanagment. (You got some money over there, doncha?)

See, even refugees from the North Korean Ministry of Propaganda can get a job in the governor's press office. Must be tough though not being able to use Juche(c) and Sea of Fire(c) in official communications.
and yet they are still pursuing that High Speed Rail browndoggle which will initially go from nowhere to nowhere
I'm guessing the CA and the Feds will use it to transfer $40B into CA's economy, and only some token infrastructure will be put in to cover a few union jobs. The rest will evaporate to who knows where, then the whole thing will be canceled and any debt overlooked.
it's a sinkhole of $. It will NEVER operate in the black as the Prop authorizing it required. In my dreams I'd like all the blatantly lying pols, unions, engineering firms(!) and contracting firms that bankroll the lie to be smacked into their bankruptcy

"It was one of the hardest speeches I've written," Favreau said.
Of course. It's been the better part of a century since presidents wrote their own speeches. That's what clever wordsmiths like Peggy Noonan are for. Although if that was one of the hardest speeches Mr. Favreau has written, perhaps he'd better go in for additional training.
Forgive him, he might be right: given the stifling, pedantic mush Champ has been pushing these last few years, it just might have been the hardest speech Mr. Favreau has ever written. How many different ways can you cut up your opponents and offer free stuff to your supporters?
If Peggy Noonan is a clever wordsmith, then Alejandro the MS-13 tagger is a poet laureate.
She must be a clever wordsmith, because she most certainly isn't a clever thinker, poor dear. Fortunately, she'll never notice there's a difference.
She must be a clever wordsmith, she gets invited to all the right parties...
I read and re-read the article and the headline conclusion does not follow from the story--a non sequitur. No where were women mentioned in the story as far as I could tell. I guess it is implied and for the reader to discern these esoteric nuances. But it is Daily Kos reporting(?) isn't it?
What g(r)omgoru said. Sure the Green Party hates black women. And white men. And Asian children. The philosophy calls for a *vast* reduction in the human population, and their membership are 99% white, urban progressives. You figure it out.
The philosophy calls for a *vast* reduction in the human population. That's the philosophy of the Livid Party. Sir David Attenborough recently went on record that the human race is a 'plague' on the earth. He's 86 years old. He is not following the advice of Japans finance minister: Old people should hurry up and die
There's tens of thousands of centenarians in Japans...of course, they died many decades ago but the family really, but really enjoy spending their old age pension...so nobody tell their government.
't's all fiat money, anyway, innit?
