Skip to comments.Julia Louis-Dreyfus Asks Obama to Halt Keystone XL Tar Sands Pipeline (Video)
Posted on 11/11/2011 8:31:32 AM PST by Recovering_Democrat
Earlier this week, Obama revealed that he was at least considering delaying or denying the Keystone XL, the controversial pipeline that would carry tar sands oil from Canada to the Texas Gulf Coast. His hesitance to approve the pipeline is no doubt thanks the enormous tide of opposition that has risen up against it. From every green group on the books to impacted indigenous peoples to a cadre of outspoken celebrity activists, the opponents of Keystone XL have been gaining momentum indeed.
The latest and perhaps most unexpected celebrity to come out swinging at the Obama administration is Julia Louis-Dreyfus, the actress most famous for playing Elaine on Seinfeld. She's recorded a video with the Tar Sands Action campaign asking Obama to turn down the proposed pipeline, and has announced that she'll be attending the massive protest at the White House in Washington D.C. this weekend.

Well, the kooks won: they convinced Hussein to punt. Really, did ANYONE expect Hussein to promote ANY type of energy independence for the western hemisphere? Gimme a break.
Even if it did say "yes", this regime would have countered the grant with additional taxes and regulations.
By the way, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, worth millions, probably had a lot of petroleum products used in the construction of TWO HOMES:

I actually I believe Elaine is worth billions, not millions.
What is surprising about hollywood liberals being against intelligent energy policies?

EyeGuy’s Plumber Asks Obama to Halt his Openly Racist Policies.
Except that my plumber actually has some skill and talent.
According to www.famenetworth.com, her estimated net worth is about $3 billion dollars.
HTF did she she manage that?
“What is surprising about hollywood liberals being against intelligent energy policies?”
The overwhelming majority of energy policies, particularly when implemented by the energy companies themselves, are “intelligent”.
I say that all those pampered Hollywood stars should only be paid minimum wage and have to live in inner city government housing since ACTING is not real work...The Romans had it right in their social system where the actors were the scum at the bottom of the social order...
20K+ jobs lost if the pipeline is not built.
Yeah, her father is the CEO of the Louis Dreyfus Group which is, according to Wikipedia, “a diversified French private company that is involved in agriculture and energy commodities (global processing, trading and merchandising).” Looks like it’s a family-owned company since 1851.
“I am famous, therefore, I am smart.”
What a putz.
There are already tens of thousands of miles of pipelines in America. Thank goodness!
I’ll be she doesn’t heat or cool her homes with wind power!
When you limosine liberals start driving Smart(ass) cars, then we’ll talk.
I’ve been pleading with her for years to get that worthless TV show of hers off the air. Thank God for the remote!
No pipeline for you!
Typical commie elite millionaire whore.
Her politics aren’t very good. I mean, they aren’t up to the level as her dancing.
Indeed she is, yet this is what she does...
I tend to think I’m quite accustomed to smug, lefty pinhead celebs and their moronic political blather. Nowadays it’s become part of the constant background noise, if anything.
But living in a rather economically depressed vicinity that would greatly benefit from this project (not even counting the huge benefit to the country), this example really takes the cake. Although maybe I should just be glad that Dreyfuss didn’t add in with her statement a call for someone to kill Sarah Palin, like some of her other Hollywood comrades. God, I loathe these people.
She’s apparently a BIGGER IDIOT in REAL LIFE than she was on the show...................
And that’s saying something LOL.
Like I said, it’s not just how much money you make, it’s HOW you make you money. She’s been lucky to be able to play around all her life. Others have to WORK for their wealth.
I’m still waiting for someone with more intellectual heft to weigh in, like George Lopez or Snookie.
No wonder Jerry hired her. She’s perfect...........
"Sweet fancy Moses!"
It is so good to hear from actors who have engineering degrees in Petrochemical and geological backgrounds.
LOL, you’re good.
I mean, anyone can recognize that.
Basically this move is nothing but a sop for the enviromental racket to rake in the bucks. If you notice they never tell you why the pipeline is controversial because it is not, so basically the lawyers and other parasites are running a racket to seperate dollars from dumbasses. Enter this bimbo, exit her dollars (but I’ll bet fewer than the racketeers expected from such a rich person)
And the winner is..................................................29 posted on Friday, November 11, 2011 11:11:11 AM by TheOldLady (FReepmail me to get ON or OFF the ZOT LIGHTNING ping list)
Full disclosure my WEst Texas oil and gas royalty took a nice pop today on this news.
She is also doing a radio PSA where she claims our national parks need more environmental regulations and are under-funded.
I suppose Laurie David would have vetoed her as a Seinfeld cast member if she did not hold such opinions.
“Excuse me Mr. President, she’s a celebrity. You better listen.”
“Celebrities - Is there ANYTHING they don’t know?”
All those little people keep getting in her way on the roads and beaches.
Besides, she’za hottie.
Now that I know she’za liberal (with lotsa doe), changes things a bit for me. Ded-gummit
Nice houses. She has 2 quite large carbon footprints & she is telling us about pipelines???
Whatever she thinks she knows about the National Forests & Parks was learned while watching National Geographic on TV.
She hasn’t seen any forest up close & personal, I bet.
Through her father, a billionaire heir to the Louis Dreyfus Group, one of the world’s largest commodities trading and merchandising firms, she had a cousin, Robert Louis-Dreyfus (19462009), former CEO of Adidas and owner of the Olympique de Marseille soccer team.
Net worth: $3 billion
Julia Louis-Dreyfus, the actress who played Elaine Benes in Seinfeld, has a personal fortune of $3 billion.
a little known fact is that Julia is lucky to be the eldest daughter of billionaire Gerard Louis-Dreyfus, chairman of the Louis Dreyfus Energy Services
Julias father is still alive (born in 1932) as is her mother and step mother. She also has four siblings. But word on the street is that Julia is the apple of her fathers eye after all the success she had without relying on her family name or connections. This success outside the family business earned Louis-Drefuys millions of dollars of her very own both from Seinfeld as well as her recent hit The New Adventures of Old Christine. But the real money will come through inheritance.
Oh, man! That was an accident. I wasn’t even trying, and it’s not on the “Post at 11/11/11 11:11:11” thread!!
I’m definitely saving the source code on that one, LOL! Thanks for the ping, eastforker.
All that we expect out of them is to memorize their lines and act. All they expect from us in return is our allegiance. Is that really asking too much?
YES!!! Common sense.
We have been importing that oil from canada for decades. There is already a pipeline running ti Illinois, have there ever been any problems with it?.
How much fuel would be rquired to transport the oil by Ship, Rail or truck? The Pipeline would not require that “air polluting” fuel.
Piping that oil to Texas would not make it dirtier than shipping by other means.
