REPORT: State Department (Read, Obama) To Reject The Keystone Pipeline
Business Insider ^ | 01/18/12 | Mamta Badkar

Posted on 01/18/2012 9:11:26 AM PST by MissesBush

The Obama administration is expected to reject the controversial Keystone Pipeline this afternoon, according to Fox News.

The State Department is expected to vote against the pipeline this afternoon. Transcanada will however be allowed to reapply with an alternate route going through Nebraska.

The administration will be unlikely to approve the pipeline under the timeline for the payroll tax cut extension law which requires a decision by February 21

The project has been extremely controversial for two main reasons. Those in favor of the pipeline point to the 8.5% unemployment rate, and point out that the pipeline could create much-needed high-paying jobs. Moreover, it would provide cash-strapped governments with tax revenues. On the other hand after the BP Deepwater spill of 2010 and ExxonMobil's July 2011 pipeline spill, environmentalists are pressuring the Obama administration to nip the project in the bud.

More to come...

What is amazing is the MSM dropping Hillary’s name all the time to replace Obama and she sold AZ out to the UN and is now a part of this and somehow people still think she is a nice moderate that wants to break glass ceilings.IOW:This better tar and feather Hilllary’s name as well.

McCain seems to like partisan hacks that put politics before country.

Excuse me... But since when does a cabinet agency get to “vote?”

You read my mind!

Obama is owned by the Saudis. They not only paid for his trip to Pakistan when he was a young man of no means, they also paid large bribes to Columbia and Harvard to admit him, spectacularly unqualified as he was. There was apparently yet another bribe to the University of Chicago to accept this academic sub-mediocrity as a ‘lecturer’ there. Last but not least, a lot of the illegal foreign campaign contributions came from Saudi Arabia.

So, Obama owes them in a big way, his Marxism and ant-Americanism aside. He now has to keep the price of oil as high as possible for the continuing wealth transfer to the medieval Saudis.

Okay, what states are Obama sure to lose as a result of this dopey decision? I’m guessing Ohio and Pennsylvania for starters.

....and Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota.....

Plus you've got to ask how many of these western states are going to begin to wonder if they shouldn't go talk to Texas about some Tag Team Secession action.

Some people don't get shat upon more than once without taking measures.....

(At the same time, the clock is ticking. By accessing Canada's crude oil the United State moves closer to its goal of reducing reliance on oil from the Middle East, a goal shared and expressed by every U.S. president since Dwight D. Eisenhower.)

If the U.S. State Department does not awaken from three years of indecision and the folks in charge kill the pipeline's development here, China is ready now to finance any engineering necessary to seize the opportunity and bring Canada's energy resources to China.

Every candidate in the GOP should pound on this unceasingly from now until November.

The man is unhinged in his hate for America and his desire to hurt this nation.

The jobs we will not have a sa result of this decision, the further dependence on forein oil, the gift of North American oil to China it will result in, the negatinve impact on national security, the further erosion of and failure to use and increase our won energuy production and self reliance.

Obama is a disaster, and is an enemy to traditional America and the moral foundational principles our constitution depneds upon.

If a guy is willing to sell out our men missing in action, their families and friends, and veterans, you can rest assured he’ll sell out anyone and anything.

What gets me is how he does it with impunity. Even people on this forum were pleased as punch to vote for the bastard.

When Jane Fonda went to Vietnam, she demonstrated that she was willing to sell out our men. I have detested that bitch ever since. She didn’t even care if our men in the Hanoi Hilton were beaten or abused in other ways for refusing to be used by her.

The MIA issue was the crowning act of McCain that let me know this ass was as vile as she was.

These are two people I will never respect. I loathe them both.

Yet, nearly half of American's cannot wait to cast a vote for that Anti-American, Anti-capitalist Marxist. that includes a few of my own relatives :(

The single institution responsible for allowing this has been the evil MSM. They cover for him at every opportunity.

What the hell is the State Dept "voting" on and why? What does Hillary know about energy, or for that matter, anything? Remember this gem?:

Hillary Clinton's message that the US wants to reset its relations with Russia got lost in translation today.

Like all good diplomats, Hillary brought along a prop to her meeting with Russia's foreign minister.

What prop, you ask? A bright red symbolic "reset button" to give to Russia's top diplomat. Only problem — "reset" was mistranslated into Russian as "overcharge." How do you say "oops" in Russian?

while the media obsesses about Romney's taxes or Gingrich's proposals to put kids who want to work or about whatever else they chose to demagogue Republicans about, we have the serial killer of American jobs, Barack Obama, killing yet more US employment---and putting the US economy in even deeper jeopardy with record gas prices. What a dunce.

are you serious ???

the DNC played the congress like the fools they are, or they are simply two faces of the same coin...

the 08 campaign revolved aroound the 'necessarily skyrocketing' cost of energy to fix the country...didnt hurt bambam too badly then did it ???

this will be spun to the masses for what it was, a 'republican' ultimatum, that of course the bambam was forced to reject, because the science isnt settled...

the dumbasses made an ultimatum that had no teeth to force him to accept it...for a two month extension of further raiding the SS *cough* trust fund...

bambam is dumber than a bag of hammers, but he is literate, somewhat, and can read the script...and the idiot princes of the gated DC establishment are playin along just fine as well...
