Did the Russians attack a Texas energy plant?

Original Article

On June 8, a potentially disastrous situation was mostly averted at the Freeport liquefied-natural-gas (LNG) plant outside of Houston, Texas. An explosion at the plant took place after a leak in one of the pipes released a cloud of natural gas into the area and it burst into flames. Fortunately, the gas dissipated quickly and the blast didn’t extend past the enclosed area of the compound. Local firefighters had the flames extinguished quickly and there were no injuries reported, but the plant suffered damage that will limit its output for much of the year. Normally, a story like this wouldn’t raise many eyebrows. LNG is notoriously challenging to work

One RPG would do it, from hundreds of yards away. LNG exports are cutting into Russian profits, and more importantly....Russian CONTROL of other countries via natural gas.

It’s nice to have some indication that the FBI still has some time to attend to matters like this in between harassing parents of school children.

The Russians getting us back for a direct support of Ukraine? if they did do this their punishment should be swift and sharp. How about Norway and Sweden's admission into NATO as soon as possible.

What a load of crap! All those promises of Ukraine destroying Vlad and all we're left with are pathetic attempts to blame Russia for LNG leaks. I'm waiting for a really good attempt at a false flag. Meanwhile a small Russian army is pounding the Ukrainians into dust. Could just as well say it's a US attempt to create a shortage to drive up the price of the LNG we're exporting to imbecile Europeans.

Someone reported this white male, shirtless, riding a white horse along the pipeline with a Zippo in his right hand, muttering in Russian. Putin’s whereabouts on June 8 were disguised as a visit to a Russian hospital for cancer treatment. However, he surely smuggled himself in through the southern U.S. border, was provided water and cash courtesy of some mush-headed pro-invader NGO, then took a free bus to Houston to conduct his operation at a profit. He’s a clever one, that Russian.

God help us if we get a bad Gulf Coast Hurricane this year that shuts everything down. At least we got rid of that pesky strategic petroleum reserve we used to fall back on. Even without a hurricane this summer it is going to get beyond ugly.

Personally, before I looked for Boris and Natasha, I would look at the facts that: A) Freeport LNG didn't report anything nefarious. B) Since 2015, Freeport has been issued 11 enforcement actions from the federal Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration. Which is more than any other LNG facility on the Gulf. C) This explosion was the fourth incident at the plant reported to PHMSA since 2019. LNG, fire, and explosions are not unfamiliar with each other.

Colombo, Sri Lanka — Sri Lanka's debt-laden economy has "collapsed" after months of shortages of food, fuel and electricity, the prime minister told lawmakers Wednesday in comments that underscored the country's dire situation as it seeks help from international lenders. Ranil Wickremesinghe told Parliament the South Asian nation faces "a far more serious situation" than the shortages alone, and he warned of "a possible fall to rock bottom." "Our economy has completely collapsed," he said. The crisis on the island of 22 million is considered its worst in recent memory, but Wickremesinghe did not cite any specific new developments.

The Catholic Church is heeding federal law enforcement's warning that a radical group is "calling for extreme violence" against churches nationwide in response to the Supreme Court's expected reversal of abortion rights. An internal document obtained by Newsweek outlines intelligence shared by the Department of Homeland Security with the Catholic Church of a planned "Night of Rage," targeting churches and pregnancy centers over their opposition to abortion rights. The document sheds light on how law enforcement and the church are bracing for backlash after a leaked opinion showed the Supreme Court preparing to rescind federal abortion rights. Labeled an "urgent memo," the document is from the Diocese

The Senate voted 65–33 to pass a bipartisan gun-control bill late on Thursday night, sending the legislation to the House. The bill requires increased background checks for gun buyers under age 21, including of mental-health and criminal records, and provides funding for states to implement “red flag” laws designed to prevent dangerous individuals from purchasing guns. Funding is also allocated toward mental-health and school-safety programs under the legislation. The text of the bill was introduced on Wednesday night and was the product of weeks of negotiations led by Senators Chris Murphy (D., Conn.), Kyrsten Sinema (D., Ariz.), John Cornyn (R., Texas), and Thom Tillis (R., N.C.).

It couldn’t have been more perfect than Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas penning the definitive decision that the right to carry guns on one’s person for self-defense is inherent for all Americans. First of all, Thomas has been after the court to take up more gun rights cases. He used his considerable influence with Chief Justice John Roberts to continue looking for gun rights cases to take. The New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc., et al. v. Bruen and the state of New York was the obvious choice. Remember, the state of New York, before Thursday’s decision as a “may issue” state

On Thursday, the Supreme Court delivered a major victory for gun rights. The Court decided that “the Second and Fourteenth Amendments protect an individual’s right to carry a handgun for self-defense outside the home” and that the New York law requiring a “proper cause” to obtain a concealed carry license was unconstitutional. My colleague Joe Cunningham reported on some of the unhinged reactions from the peanut gallery including Keith Olbermann, former acting U.S. Solicitor General Neal Katyal, and former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara. Bharara said, “SCOTUS read neither the room nor the Constitution correctly.” Funny, and perhaps telling that he doesn’t understand that

The Biden administration on Tuesday proposed changes to the federal civil-rights statute banning sex discrimination in federally funded education programs, including expanding protections to sexual orientation and gender identity. One proposed change “would make clear that preventing any person from participating in an education program or activity consistent with their gender identity would subject them to more than de minimis harm on the basis of sex and therefore be prohibited, unless otherwise permitted by Title IX or the regulations.” If adopted, the rule change would bar universities and any other federally funded institutions from maintaining men’s and women’s sports and sex-segregated spaces like locker rooms and dormitories.

He wrote he views Florida as a better corporate environment and though he didn’t specifically cite crime as a factor, company officials said it was a consideration.

Washington — The Supreme Court on Thursday struck down a New York law that placed strict restrictions on carrying concealed firearms in public for self defense, finding its requirement that applicants seeking a license to carry a concealed handgun demonstrate a "proper cause" to do so in public is unconstitutional. In a 6-3 ruling, the Supreme Court reversed a lower court decision upholding New York's 108-year-old law limiting who can obtain a license to carry a concealed handgun in public. Proponents of the measure warned that a ruling from the high court invalidating it could threaten gun restrictions in several states and lead to more firearms on city streets. Justice Clarence Thomas

Not only that, Ocasio-Cortez complained, but there are thousands of dollars worth of out-of-pocket expenses.

The Supreme Court on Thursday handed down its opinion in a landmark Second Amendment rights case, the biggest win for gun rights since the court's Heller ruling holding that "New York’s proper-cause requirement violates the Fourteenth Amendment by preventing law-abiding citizens with ordinary self-defense needs from exercising their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms in public for self-defense." (Tweets) The ruling came down 6-3, with Justice Clarence Thomas writing the majority opinion joined by Justices Roberts, Alito, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Barrett — plus concurring opinions by Justice Alito and Justice Kavanaugh. Justices Breyer wrote the dissent joined by Sotomayor, and Kagan.
