Colorado recall erupts into proxy battle on fracking between green groups, industry

July 19, 2017

Oil FrackingA local recall election in suburban Colorado has erupted into a proxy war on hydraulic fracturing pitting environmental groups against the oil-and-gas industry.

Voters will decide Tuesday whether to oust Broomfield Mayor Pro Tem Greg Stokes after fracking opponents submitted 1,169 signatures to force a recall, even though he’s term-limited and his successor will be elected in November.

Mr. Stokeshas called the recall “irrational.” Holding the vote will cost the city an estimated $45,000, prompting his supporters to decry the vote as a waste of money and blast the ongoing involvement of and Food & Water Watch on the local energy debate.

“Are we OK with a national keep-it-in-the-ground group like taking advantage of our recall process to make a political statement at the expense of Broomfield residents to the tune of $40-50,000?” asked the Front Range Energy Alliance’s Nick Kleibenstein at a June 28 council meeting.

    Odd this when today I read that Obama brought Gypsies into Colorado and they are defecating and urinating in the streets. People are beyond upset with the smell not to mention the unsanitary conditions this makes for them. But Denver has decided to not make it against the law and the people can’t be punished, showing PC to these savages. But this they are making a fuss over.

    Boy howdy.

    Environmental groups should be shot in their heads. They are the ones that hatted trees being cut down, but still use toilet paper!

    1. Tiger says:

      If any of them have any dirt on Hillary and threaten to expose it they will be shot i the head.

      1. gvette says:

        Seems to be happening a lot, as of late!

        1. Tiger says:

          All over the place.

          1. gvette says:

            I think her day is coming, Tiger!

          2. Tiger says:

            Gvette I think so also and Obama along with Holder and Soros.

          3. gvette says:

            I haven’t made a phone call in a long time. Shame on me. I’m going to call the head of the DOJ. I want to know exactly why, there is virtually nothing going on. Investigations going on, all over the place. They have ALL they need to prosecute Killary, ans Omuslim.

          4. Tiger says:

            I email almost everyday Trump and my representatives. There is much happening Gvette, Sessions is having the MS 13 picked up left and right and the illegals also and among them are Muslims here illegally. Just the other day the Feds raided the Muslim Islamberg and found a cash of weapons. They are going great guns on most everything but so much wrong in America, I suppose hard to prioritize. I am with you though nothing more important than to take Hillary, Obama and Soros down.

          5. gvette says:

            I know trump is doing what he said he’d do. I want DemonRATS in jail, Tiger. That’s my main point. As for Soros, and I’m not standing up for him, but he doesn’t do anything illegal. Immoral, yes.

          6. Tiger says:

            I know Gvette so many of us do and we know that if Trump doesn’t do it, it won’t be done.

            Well yes Soros is paying the Antifa and all the violent protesters and he was busing them into Ferguson and Baltimore, he has broken our laws and he has to fall.

          7. gvette says:

            I understand Soros is a piece of shit. We all know that. Can you tell me what law he has broken? He’s usually very careful about using his many groups to do his bidding. To protect himself from legal problems. I’d be kidding you if I said I wouldn’t want him dead. His son would take over quick!

            Here ya go and Russia, Canada and Hungary among others stopping Soros organizations.

          9. gvette says:

            Thank you Tiger. Now, how can you tag that to Soros? We know he does it, but it’s done through foundations.A little laugh here. You don’t think our DOJ is actually going to do something about it, do you.

          10. gvette says:

            Thank you. I can always count on you for information! Bless your heart!!

          11. Tiger says:

            Well Bless you also, I try really hard and my information base is huge now, I have learned so much about our laws and all, it has been an education for me. You are a dear person.

          12. gvette says:

            Thank you Tiger! I try.
            Hopefully I’ll get answers on Monday, when I call the DOJ. Time will tell.

          13. Tiger says:

            Good for you. Welcome.

          14. gvette says:

            If they have anything good to say, I’ll tell you about it!

          15. dmttbt says:

            I’ll vote for that. We all know that nothing is going to be done. It is a fact that when the people allow you to make the rules they are going to be in your favor.

          16. gvette says:

            Case in point. All forms of government, by law, have to have a yearly budget. If you remember, in the 8 years of Omuslm, there wasn’t one. Then, Nancy thelousy said, “we don’t need no budget”.
            There are no provisions for fines if they don’t have one. You are correct. The rules are made in their favor!

    2. dmttbt says:

      I saw where someone wrote about your use of language they apparently do not agree with.Personally I have been enjoying it. It sounds like something I would say. We have to understand that the blacks have taken over the letter N and that only leaves us with 25 letters. We have to be careful.

      1. gvette says:

        LOL…yes, I get it sometimes. Usually by Bob, or AK. I could care less about them. They get angery because I call their hero Barry, the gay communist nigger!. By the way, he is the only person I refer to as that. You know how the left is about the truth!!
