Republicans love to supress freedom of speech, and will use their "power" as it exists, to violate the Constitution at will.

The Fascist Republican chairman of this committee needs to be arrested and held without charges for a couple of years until we can sort all this out.

Fracking is safer and more efficient than windmills or solar panels. They take vast resources to make, are innefficient and are a huge disposal hazard.
The democrats don't want the truth filmed while the republicans bring out the truth about fracking.
Don't the Capital Police work for Obama first and foremost??

That's funny. You say the "democrats don't want the truth filmed", while the fact is, the subcommittee chairman that had the filmmaker removed and arrested was a REPUBLICAN. So, do you want to try that again? Who doesn't want the truth filmed?

the truth about fracking is that they are contaminating our water and the republicans are selling out to big oil companys.

Remember the early days of CSpan, the country spent lots on up grading PBS distribution.
The Congressional Secrets are not to be seen. And, they are legally protected from insider trading.

Are you really that friggin' ignorant? did you even read the article? UIt was the free-speech/free-press Repukes that denied him standard permission that cause his arrest.

No police force works for President Obama.

I hadn't heard that Koch Brothers/T.Boone Philips propaganda talking point. Amazing how much BULLSH!T can be produced with mega-MILLION $$$ PR pros.

Fracking is the greatest thing since sliced cheese.
It's super safe and reliable. Only Obama wants that news kept secret, I don't care who he told to give the order. The truth will come out soon. it alwys does. How did Holder do in court today? Did he slither away again and did he perjure himself again?

No point in explaining the concept to a Republican.

The old saying "you can't change the mind of an ignorant man"
fits these GOP Bozos to a tee.

Then truth is out. Fracking poisons ground water for hundreds of miles. Tap water burns.
Just another subsidy to the fossil fuel industry that has never paid its way. If they had to pay for all the environmental destruction they cause, they'd go out of business. So everyone else pays with dirty air, dirty water and polluted rivers and oceans etc., etc.,, etc.

Poor BlandMaster, never been to the movies, I guess, nor do you have television.

You must be religious. LOL

See the movie "Gasland" and you'll see the high price the people pay in polluted wastelands they can't live in once Republican Reich corporate America gets through with them.

We need to nationalize all energy and stop Republicans from destroying our nation.

Creating new Love Canals nationwide.

The cheese you're cutting must be gas from fracking.

And I'm being polite in using the word "fracking", BottomMaster.

LOL
