BP Oil Spill: Louisiana’s Nungesser Blasts Interior Officer Over Dredge Email
Written by 

As the BP oil hits more of the Louisiana shore, state officials are becoming more frustrated by the day with the federal response.  On Wednesday, Louisiana Plaquemines Parish President, Billy Nungesser, blasted the feds and a top Interior Department official in reaction to an email a top Interior official sent to Nungesser, state and other federal offficials.

Louisiana has been in a dispute with the Obama administration and the federal government over the response to  the BP oil spill.  This week, Governor Bobby Jindal blasted the federal government for their stopping dredging that the state was doing to build barrier islands.  

Below is a correspondence from Jane Lyder (Deputy Assistant Secretary For Fish and Wildlife and Parks, Department of the Interior) to various Louisiana and federal government officials.  

After that email from Lyder, Nungesser issued the “Nungesser Dredge statement”, followed by even another statement below:


From: Lyder, Jane
Sent: Wednesday, June 23, 2010 4:41 PM
To: Lee, Alvin B COL MVN; Garret Graves; Kyle Graham; charlie hess; Serio, Pete J MVN; Accardo, Christopher J MVN; Colletti, Jerry A MVN; Ulm, Michelle S MVN; Mayer, Martin S MVN
Cc: Robert Routon; steve mathies; Jeff Jenkins; George bevan; Mark Zimmerman; ancil taylor; Mike Flores;  Harris, James

Subject: Question about manpower

I’ve been asked if we could get more people out there to help lay the pipe would it go faster.  It was suggested that we should help the State find volunteers to make a 5-7 or 9-10 day job a much shorter job. Is that feasible at all? We would be willing to contact folks in Houma & round up volunteers if it would help at all.

Nungesser Dredge Statement
Wednesday, June 23, 2010

“Every minute we waste makes us more and more vulnerable to the oil attacking the marsh and the breeding grounds for the pelicans.  It’s a shame that the bureaucrats once again fight us instead of helping us in this war against the oil,” said Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser.
Below is an email from Jane Lyder of the Department of the Interior.  She’s the one holding up the dredging.  This is one piece of correspondence in a chain with the State of Louisiana, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, DOI, and others.


(2nd Nungesser statement  from June 23)

“You don’t move sediment pumping pipe with volunteers.  This is the lady that Thad Allen and President Obama are allowing hold up dredging to save our wetlands—God help us.  What planet is this lady from?  In the conference today Lyder was worried about the pelican nesting grounds.  Obviously, she hasn’t been out there to see the birds dying, covered in oil, just like the other people who make ridiculous comments.  Maybe she should go sailing on a yacht in England with Tony Hayward, it would be a great place to send her on vacation.  I’ll pay her way,” said President Nungesser.

wag edwards tweetIn the age of rapid response, social media, President and CEO of the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry took to twitter to apparently poke the Democrat Governor and to promote his own tour of his own legislative package, or legislative outlook tour, beginning today.

Today, Stephen Waguespack of LABI tweeted in response to The Advocate’s Tyler Bridges article that John Bel Edwards would be delaying his release of his tax overhaul package that was scheduled for today.

quin hillyer health 5Have the conservative Freedom Caucus and advocacy organizations such as Freedom Works and Heritage Action "screwed the American people"?

That's the feeling expressed by at least one long-time conservative Republican, who, as millions of others were outraged by the destruction of the Obamacare "repeal" and replacement, on Friday.

comey sitThe GOP will likely claim that the bogus “ Assisted suicide counseling” will still be covered since Obamacare remains the law of the land. That’s good news for GOP legislators who planned on voting “yes” on its repeal. The rich, also, should be happy the old law remains because they have wounds that need tending after the mega tax breaks for them that were inserted in Trumpcare went the way of leeching. The failure to repeal, of course, is the Democrats fault. Trump said so, but he has reason to be happy, too. The health care debacle managed, if just for an hour, or two, to deflect attention away from Russia.
