Canada pulls the plug on the U.S. Keystone Pipeline – will send oil to Asia
wattsupwiththat.com ^ | 6/28/2014 | Anthony Watts

Posted on 06/29/2014 8:53:56 AM PDT by rktman

H/T Eric Worrall and Breitbart – Obama’s inability to make a decision on Keystone has finally yielded a result – Canada has made the decision for him.

Breitbart reports Canada has just approved the Enbridge Northern Gateway Project – a major pipeline to ship Canadian oil to Asia.

The Canadian oil will still be burnt – in Asia, instead of America.

All the jobs and energy security which Canadian oil could have delivered to America, will instead be delivered to Asia.

Now where will all those union guys work? Way to back the guy that promised you jobs but can't/won't follow through. But, not to worry. Dickey boy trumpka is still livin' high on the hog off your dues even after hairy reid-iculous gets his cut.

P.S. Probably the evil Koch brothers fault anyway.

This man is such a much more massive failure that I ever imagined even in my worst nightmares.

We need Woody Allen to remake that scene in “sleeper” where the guy finds out that everything society told him back in the 1970s was totally wrong, only have it be about the Obama presidency.

The folks of the future will have a nice little chuckle at our expense.

He is not failure.

He never wanted the pipeline and he will now claim that Canada did this to him.

A Marxist and a jehadist all rolled up in one.

I just can not believe that this man is president of the United States of America and that there are still people in this country that think he is fit to be president.

The only way to come to a different conclusion regarding this man is to willfully ignore reality. Everyone says he is unsuccessful as a President. By whose definition? In his own eyes he is accomplishing what he set out to accomplish, i.e., the diminution of the US, namely its economy, military, security, culture along with its international relationships and standing.

Here’s what gets me — officially, the pipeline was under consideration and being studied for over five years.

We won World War II in less time than the Obama administration was studying this pipeline project.

Why does the liberal media let Obama get away with a “pocket veto” so to speak of this project? What in the sam hill were they studying for five years??? Why didn’t the media ever ask why it takes five years or more to explore all of the impacts of a pipeline? The media never asked these basic questions.

Dear Union thugs.

Please discuss this privately with Herr Obozo and his buddies in congress.

Then, you need to make house calls on the Green Eco Terrorists who cost you jobs and money.

PS: You might try voting against your beloved DemocRATS in the up coming election.

This seems like a big development. Surprised it’s not getting more coverage.

Is it definite that Canada’s decision to move forward with this other pipeline means there would be no oil for the Keystone XL pipeline? The article makes it sound like building Keystone XL would now be useless. I wonder if that is correct.

Contrary to what you might hear in many conservative media reports, the purpose of the Keystone XL pipeline is to transport oil to the Gulf Coast where it can be processed and exported all over the globe. It was never really intended to serve domestic U.S. needs.

If the U.S. doesn't want to approve the Keystone XL pipeline, then Canada will send the oil to their own coastline for export.

On a related note, I believe a lot of this is hype and nonsense. From what I've seen and heard in the energy sector and government folks in Canada, their ultimate goal is to transport crude oil either directly to Asia via pipeline, or to terminals in Alaska that would serve Canadian, Alaskan and Arctic oil.

NOW THIS WOULD BE A PERFECT TIME TO SHUT DOWN THE ENVIRONMENTAL LEFT WING GROUPS!

This confirms that climate change is dead. Not one word from the global warming groups that this is going to kill millions.

Sort of like how all these NOW hags have nothing to say about female genitalia mutilation that happens in Africa.

They are all FRAUDS and need to be taken down.

I guess the enviro-greenie protestors won.

Much to the chagrin of the oil pipeline worker unions.

TWO of the constituencies that have largely supported the Current Occupant now squatting in the White Hut are on opposite sides of the dispute over the Keystone XL pipeline.

The Shi’ites are in conflict with the Sunnis. It could get ugly.

“Clean air” is obviously not compatible with full employment and rising productivity.

It's all a part of his "fundamental transformation." While the government had been sliding into a fascist oligarchy, Obama is trying to transform it into his own vision of paradise for him and his masters. A fascist authoritarian/oligarchical state.

Yes. Rush has made this point several times, over the past 5+ years.

0’s a success...it’s all going according to plan. Rush had hoped 0 would fail.

I don’t blame the Canadians one bit.

They have been more than patient with Obama. Obama is beholden to the environmentalist wackos, and he wants to harm America, so it’s no wonder he’s opposed to the pipeline.

Another angle....Canadian oil has been shipped in the recent past to the U.S. by the BNSF Railroad. Who owns that railroad? Warren Buffet. Who gives big bucks to the dems? The dufus of Omaha himself, Warren Buffet.

“The media never asked these basic questions.”

Of course they don’t. Anything that has the potential to hurt Obama or any other dem is ignored, while anything that casts a republican in a bad light is played up and gets wall-to-wall coverage, whether the accusations are justified or contrived out of thin air.

oboma IS NOT INCOMPETENT. Everything he does is deliberate and by design to destroy our country and re-figure it into a socialist/communist/marxist paradise of oppression, misery, death. He has his jack boot on our necks and is cutting us off from that which we need to survive in this country.

Get good and angry, everyone, each time you read about what obozo has just done to this country, to you and me, to our Constitution, liberty & freedom. THEN, resolve to never stop fighting, to persevere until we are able to drag the last communist/socialist/marxist/muzzie collaborator out of our White House, and up onto a scaffold where a hemp necktie awaits them. This is what I pray for and work toward daily.
