Trump To Sign Executive Orders Advancing Keystone, Dakota Pipelines
Zero Hedge ^ | 1-24-2017 | Tyler Durden

January 24, 2017

It is just day two of his presidency, and already Trump is taking a sledgehammer to the Obama legacy: in his latest move reported moments ago by Bloomberg, president Trump intends to sign two executive actions today "that would advance construction of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines", putting a spoke, so to say, in the train wheels of Warren Buffett's train-based oil transportation quasi-monopoly.

Keystone was rejected under former President Barack Obama. Trump’s move on Energy Transfer Partners LP’s 1,172-mile Dakota Access project aims to end a standoff that has stalled the $3.8 billion project since September, when the Obama administration halted work on land near Lake Oahe in North Dakota.

This should be as simple as making the declaration. The days of a dog lying in the manger, snarling at the horses so they could not feed, should be nearly over.

Beat it, dog.

...and his Day One promises? They are, overall, more important. Are they to occur today? Watching and waiting.

Winning is GREAT-how wonderful it is to have a POTUS who actually puts the USA first. Let the middle eastern terrorists drink their oil. Energy independence!

Can you spell "jobs"....

The Dems say it would mean maybe 4 or 5. Does that make sense??

My friend went to Alaska...I forgot how many years ago...and worked on the pipeline....Made a looooooot of money....cuz there was nothing to spend it on....except food and cigarettes.

Off topic, but of interest:

Obama's first Executive Order was to seal all his records,

Will President Trump reverse that order and open Obama's records so we can all find out the truth about this usurper?

Here is the info everyone needs to spread about the Dakota Access “water protectors”

The oil companies used to pay the Indians a ‘tax’ to drive across their lands shipping oil by truck.

The original oil pipeline would have crossed their lands, at a much cheaper shipping cost to the oil companies, and much more oil would flow.

But the Indians demanded they still receive the same amount of money (per barrel) as if that oil was shipped by truck.

This would have amounted to a huge increase in ‘tax’ payments to the Indians, since much more oil would flow through the pipeline.

The oil companies made a counter-offer, which the Indians rejected.

So they moved the oil pipeline line off the Indian land, increasing the cost to build it.

Then the Indians demanded THEY STILL GET PAID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...or they would shut down construction

And here we are.

They first said it would disturb ancient burial ground, which turned out to be a lie. Then they said it was crossing Indian land without their permission. THAT turned out to be a lie.

So they settled on “water protectors” even thought there are many pipelines that already cross that river, and this one would be built even safer.

It is ALL ABOUT $$$ and nothing else.

If the oil companies were to offer them the money again they would take it and shut up- which would prove the point- it is about the money and not “protecting the water”

This also provides a platform on which to reject the NDP in Alberta and Trudeauism throughout Canada!

“It is ALL ABOUT $$$ and nothing else.”


It almost always is. Thanks for pointing out these lying hypocrites.

The adults are back in charge, saying “No!” to the childish grifters of our society, who kill jobs and otherwise make the rest of us miserable if they don’t get their way. Its about time!

Buffet was the hold up on the Keystone and Dakota the entire time. He was funding Obama and Hitlery’s political careers and waned the pipeline shutdown in favor of his railroads.
