    All the studies say there is less environmental hazzard using a pipeline than a truck or rail car.
    BHO's real reason for opposing the Keystone XL pipeline is the money OPEC and a billionaire are paying to stop it. The fact jobs added would start in Conservative states from Canada to the Gulf Coast could be a factor.
    I'll guess the billionaire expects to make a lot of money shipping oil by truck or rail. Or has a deal to sell it to China. OPEC of course is trying to save 830,000 barrels a day market share. ( $86 million a day.)

    The money leads to at least two big money guys.
    Warren Buffet, who's been 'advising' the White House on big money issues and the evils of the 1%, while quietly making more hay for himself.
    Tom Steyer, who, as a very liberal 'green' guy with tons of green of his own, has promised 100 million bucks to Dems for their support for 'green' unicorns and pixie dust, and to fight the XL pipeline.
    No doubt, there are others.
    With a President who so loves campaign money for his team that he'd go to a Vegas fundraiser while Americans are begging for help and dying in Lybia, and who has worked harder for more government dependency than on livable jobs creation, why is anyone surprised at the delay.
    It's just another version of 'It was the video' and 'wait until after the election'...

    No one ever talks about the Ecana WRB (Wood River - Borger) pipeline that has been bringing Alberta Oil Sands crude to Phillips 66 Wood River, IL and Borger, TX refineries. Keystone is just another pipeline performing something that has been happening since 2007. Its political, lets see, Warren Buffet? Why is he against it? Burlington Northern owned by Berkshire Hathaway stands to lose millions if a pipeline is built and shuts down the rail. This has nothing to do with the environment.

    You are correct.... There is big money in transporting the oil by rail and it isn't very safe as the tracks in this nation have not been kept in good repair.... If they had there would not be so many de-rails.....

    If people escape from welfare then the liberals have no control over them.... The liberals love the control of people....

    As per usual JB you said a mouthful in your post.... I wish others could see what you see but I know that many have been blinded to the truth....

    There is more to the delay then just appeasing the environmentalist. Ever wonder who is profiting from the rail cars and trucks that are presently transporting the oil? Always follow the money.[wink]

    The current answer is very simple:
    Thomas Steyer is giving 100 million bucks to Democrats if Keystone is NOT approved, and other 'green' ratholes continue to be dug.
    More people would probably know this, if they weren't so busy listening to the Administration whining about the Koch brothers spending 30 million on conservatives.
    The Democrats have always benefitted by a base that is a true reflection of the meaning of the word.
    Verey 'progressive'...

    WHY?
    Why hasn't anyone explained why BHO and liberals object to the pipeline?
    A pipeline is environmentally far better than rail and truck transport.

    OPEC pays environmentalists to lobby against it. Every day of delay is another $86 million earned by OPEC.
    BHO's other reason is almost all the 42,000 or 200,000 jobs it would support would be in conservative states the pipiline runs through from Canada to the Texas Gulf coast.
    Progressives oppose it because the jobs would represent people escaping from welfare.

    Daniel 10:12-14 ( Angel from the Lord is talking to Daniel )
    -
    12) Then he continued, “Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them. 13) But the prince of the Persian kingdom resisted me twenty-one days. Then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, because I was detained there with the king of Persia. 14) Now I have come to explain to you what will happen to your people in the future, for the vision concerns a time yet to come.”

    Very interesting Daniel was talking to an angel who was dispatched to give him divine information, as were common in that day! Here is yet another incident where GOD ALMIGHTY, "PULLED THE CURTAIN OF THE UNKNOWN BACK"... and allowed us to see what is going on in the unseen,...just as he did in JOB chapter one when he summoned the sons of GOD to his throne,...and SATAN came with them! He (SATAN) told GOD, that he was going to and fro in the earth and up and down in it. (Job 1:7 )
    -
    He did not tell GOD, ( as if God did not already know )...that he was trying to STEAL, KILL, AND DESTROY against mankind, ..EVEN DEVOUR SOME HUMANS! He has not mentioned it to us either, but God has in John 10:10 and I Peter 5:8!
    -
    I went the long way around just to remind a few and inform the masses,...that just as the Angel told Daniel that there was a demonic prince,...( a powerful high ranking demon of principality who are over subjects,( Spirit and deceived humans ) serving under his command ) .......Washington DC has one of the same!

    When is the last time we've had a leader to be elected and then double cross people who elected him and claimed he "evolved?" When was the last time we had a leader who went on a world tour and bowed his knee to foreign leaders in apologizing for America being a strong nation,...a beacon light of hope on a hill that many nations around the world respected,..LOOKED UP TO, and prayed for? When was the last time we had a leader who attended a meeting of leaders, and got in "CAHOOTS" with a representative from an adversarial power then instructed him secretly to tell his superior that,...."AFTER THE AMERICAN PEOPLE RE-ELECT ME,...I WILL BE MORE FLEXIBLE, (MUTABLE) TO GIVE YOU WHAT YOU WANT!" ( Translation in Piney Woods dialect: "I can then do a better job of *&^%* the American people! "Will you hold your water till then? ).
    -
    Satan has stepped up his game not only in DC but everywhere on this earth! It is just like he said,...he is walking around "TO" and "FRO" "UP and "DOWN" in the earth because his time is getting short!
    -
    Today, a man will not only steal your money and valuables,...he will steal your sacred name!!!!(sic). Pedophiles use to troll around the outer areas of schools where children played, on the hunt,..but now WE ROUTINELY find them behind a desk sitting in front of the kids' own classrooms in the schools! Progress? You bet!! Time is getting short!
    -
    "Charles Ponzi" and "Bernie Madoff"... might not have meant much to some people, but our Social Security system and National medical System is set up off of the way they did their business. That was, TAKE WHAT THE LATEST FOOLS ARE GIVING YOU, AND PAY FOR PROMISES MADE TO THE OLD FOOLS,..who also gave to you!
    -
    They call it a "PONZI SCHEME!!" Tune in tomorrow,...to here me take on another worthy topic! Until then, SEE YA,..."MAYBE"....

    This bunch quit leaning left and went into a full fall flat on the face on that side years before they ever began to 'fundamentally change' the greatest nation the world had ever known.
    Wonder if anybody has told them that even their solar cells and windmills and Chevy Volts cannot be produced or delivered without the use of hydrocarbon based products...
    [ohmy]

    I would be shocked if our left leaning administration ever approved of this job making pipeline.... After all they hate the oil field and the prosperity that it brings....
