Overnight Open Thread (8 Nov 2014)

DSCC has second thoughts on financial support for Landrieu's runoff election. Seems like a waste of money to me but hey, knock yourselves out DSCC.


Solar Swindle

This is BS. World's largest solar plant applying for a federal grant to pay off federal loan.

The Ivanpah solar electric generating plant is owned by Google and renewable energy giant NRG, which are responsible for paying off their federal loan. If approved by the U.S. Treasury, the two corporations will not use their own money, but taxpayer cash to pay off 30 percent of the cost of their plant, but taxpayers will receive none of the millions in revenues the plant will generate over the next 30 years.

Suck it up Google.

State Of Affairs

So sad that the Russian minister can feel at ease enough to make a joke at U.S. expense while Kerry looks on oblivious.

During a meeting with Kerry in Beijing, where the two gathered for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit, Lavrov deflected a reporter's question about Ukrainian allegations it had sent soldiers and weaponry into rebel-controlled areas of the country.

"Even Jen Psaki said that the State Department doesn't have the information about this," Lavrov said, referring to the State Department's spokeswoman. "If Psaki doesn't have it, I don't."

Survival Shelter

This might come in handy for the burning times. Get your own underground bunker.
