Interior Losses Offshore Drilling Moratorium Rule But Who Wins?
Written by 
Exterior shot of the United States Department ...


On Thursday, the appellate panel of the 5th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals denied the US government’s request stating it "failed to demonstrate a likelihood of irreparable injury if the stay is not granted."


The ruling appears to be a short-term embarrassment to the Obama administration who has pressed the moratorium on certain deepwater drilling activities.


However, it is uncertain how much of a victory the ruling really might be for those who won the three judge decision.   
The ruling said there was no evidence that deepwater drilling would resume immediately.

The Obama administration through the Interior Department imposed  the  deepwater drilling moratorium  after the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded which has resulted in what  is known as the BP Oil Spill.

Kendra Barkoff, the spokeswoman for the Interior Department said "We continue to believe that it is not appropriate to drill new deepwater wells in the Gulf until we can be assured that future drilling activity can be conducted in a safe and environmentally responsible manner."


There will likely be  another hearing in front  of the full appellate court in late August.  


Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal said in a statement  that he was pleased with the Court’s findings however expressed his concern that there would be more delays.


Jindal said, “We have very serious concerns that the Department of Interior is going to announce a second moratorium. As members of the court pointed out today during the hearing, despite the injunction against the original moratorium, we currently have a de facto moratorium because of uncertainty from the Department of Interior".

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.
