14 Democrats In Congress Vote To Rush Fracking Pipelines Through With Less Time For Public Input

H.R. 161, approved yesterday by the U.S House of Representatives, provides a special fast track for new fossil fuels pipelines planned to bring huge amounts of methane, a greenhouse gas, to market from fracking operations in the Marcellus Shale.

Republican Districts, Democratic Districts: How are they Different? (How are they Not?)

One of the best features of the newfangled Internet connectivity in our society is the ability of everyday citizens like you and me to take the data powerful governments, corporations and political parties have quietly accessed for decades and use it ourselves to answer driving questions we might have. Over the last few weeks I’ve […]

Crowds Protest Outside Steve Scalise Fundraiser, Demanding The Racist Congressman Resign

This afternoon, large crowds of protesters are gathering outside a fundraiser for Congressman Steve Scalise – one of the top three Republican leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Congressional Global Warming Denier Falls Under the Weather

Here at Irregular Times, we’re assembling a database to closely following the actions of the members of the new 114th Congress; look for it to come out early next week.

Be Active At Work Day Gets A Late Start In Congress

I’d like to tell you about the new legislation that was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives yesterday, but the House clerk and printing office are a bit behind in their duties of sharing congressional legislation with the public in a timely manner. The information simply isn’t available yet, so I’ll have to share […]

Have We All Attended NeoNazi Conferences, Like Steve Scalise?

“We’ve all made mistakes.”

That’s what Speaker of the House John Boehner has to say in justification of his decision to give a high leadership position in Congress to Steve Scalise.

Yes, we have all made mistakes, but simply making a mistake isn’t the issue, because not all mistakes are equal.

Maybe you made a […]

Missing Rush Holt Already

Today, the 114th Congress of the United States of America begins its business, with the opening session of the House of Representatives. Yes, already.

One voice in the U.S. House will be especially conspicuous in its absence: That of New Jersey’s Rush Holt, who has left Congress to lead the American Association for the Advancement […]

The name of the event was the European-American Unity […]

Fred Upton Positions Himself For Success In An Era Of Oil Company Cash Abundance

Today, the House Energy and Commerce Committee will hold a hearing called:“Are We Positioning America for Success in an Era of Energy Abundance?”

The answer to that question found during the hearing may be largely determined by the success with which Chairman of the subcommittee, Fred Upton, has positioned himself to receive money from the […]

While Vicky Hartzler Fiddles, the Globe Burns: October 2014 was Hottest on Record

On November 2014, Republican member of Congress and global warming denier Vicky Hartzler noticed it was cold. This, she decided, was proof enough to ridicule the idea of global warming. So she took to Twitter:

 

Rep. Hartzler is in her 54th year on Earth. Someone so well-experienced with the seasons really should have […]
