When I see this, I hear a page turning:
Walmart has been adding solar to scores of stores across the country . . . as it plans to become 100 percent renewably powered. . . The company has aggressively been building out solar on its stores and other buildings. It’s also been boosting its purchase of renewable energy both directly and indirectly. And it is doing so across the world.
“Walmart has 280 renewable energy projects in operation or under development, and continues to test solar, fuel cells, microwind, offsite wind projects, green power purchases and more,” the company said.
Mr. President, when it rains it pours, but most Americans hold their own umbrellas. Today in the Rose Garden you dismissed the idea of a Special Counsel to investigate the IRS scandal. With that, your galling political hubris shined bright in the midst of today’s dark clouds.
And here’s the outrage that compelled her to speak out:
No video, but great audio. Plain and pure.
The chief (singularly cheerless) cheerleader - after FOX News of course - of the Benghazi non-scandal, Rep. Darryl Issa, chair of the House Oversight Committee, has a working thesis: ”scandals, scandals, it’s all scandals, and cover ups too!”. Having still failed to uncover any actual wrong-doing, he’s now subpoenaed Ambassador Thomas Pickering to testify about why Pickering didn’t interview Hillary Clinton for his investigation (the official one).
Pickering has said before that he would testify before Issa’s panel about last year’s Accountability Review Board report on the attack . . . Pickering and Mullen [Admiral Mike Mullen, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Pickering's co-chair] have refused, however, to submit to a transcribed interview with Issa and his staff, calling the closed-door proceeding an “inappropriate precondition” to their testimony.
“Your refusal to allow staff investigators to interview you is inconsistent with your commitment to be ‘tough and transparent’,” Issa wrote to Pickering. “In light of your continuing refusal to appear voluntarily for a transcribed interview … I have found it necessary to issue a subpoena to compel your appearance at a deposition.”
Lovely. Rep. Elijah Cummings put it clearly:
. . . the Chairman is now accusing Admiral Mullen, the former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Ambassador Pickering, a seven-time U.S. ambassador, of being complicit in a cover-up.”
Issa did not subpoena Mullen.
(Note to self: Best to confirm actual date before scheduling posts in advance for later publication . . .)
In spite of being reminded by the ever-vigilant Ed, I failed to post an oldie last Friday. But today I am s-o-o-o-o on top of my game . . .
