James Moore talks with Sierra Club environmental attorney Wally Taylor about a topic and an issue that is of grave concern to many enviromental advocates in the Jefferson County area. The Bakken Pipeline would deliver so-called sweet crude in pipes across the state of Iowa from North Dakota and then down to the Gulf.

Here's a blurb from a recent article in the Des Moines Register titled "Branstad Won't Stop Pipeline Through Iowa":

Wally Taylor of Cedar Rapids, a lawyer for the Iowa chapter of the Sierra Club, said Iowans must do everything they can to stop the pipeline project. "We cannot let fossil fuels continue to damage and wreck our economy and environment and our earth," Taylor said.

Energy Transfer Partners (ETF), who also do business as Dakota Access, announced plans for a proposed oil pipeline that will run diagonally across Iowa, through 17 or 18 counties. The company also announced that some of the crude oil will be loaded onto rail cars for shipment to the east coast.

Attorney Taylor will be in Fairfield on Monday November 24th at 7:30pm at the Fairfield Public Library to address the issue and answer any questions people may have. A county meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, December 2nd at 9am at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds Activity Building where the company will present their agenda and then hear from local community members about their plans.

Chris ChristieAuthor Lou Manzo Exposes Christie's Naked Ambition

In his searing tell-all, Ruthless Ambition: The Rise and Fall of Chris Christie, former New Jersey State Assemblyman Louis Manzo recounts an extraordinary tale of political ruthlessness, corruption, and greed while also telling the story of how he was caught in the center of one of the most egregious political scandals in modern-day history: the Bid Rig III sting operation, masterminded by the then United States Attorney for the District of New Jersey and soon-to-be Governor Chris Christie.

Manzo shows us how the blind ambitions of Christie and his staff centered on capturing a governorship and the patronage jobs that accompany it, then parlaying that office into a shot at the presidency. Meticulous in backing things up with objective legal documentation, Manzo makes a convincing and disconcerting case for the governor as an unbridled and sinister political figure who made the most of a seriously flawed Department of Justice and overall dysfunctional judicial system to feed his megalomania and desire for power.
