Posted on 03/24/2017 7:21:45 AM PDT by davikkm
The Keystone Pipeline project was expected to create tens of thousands of high paying jobs in the oil industry. The project itself would create 20,000 construction jobs. And the pipeline would bring oil from Canada and North Dakota to refineries in the United States.
Obama rejected the plan in 2011 and again in 2015.
This week the Trump State Department signed and issued permits for the completion of the Keystone XL Pipeline.

The Dems will be outraged because this takes money away from terrorist organizations because we won’t need to get as much oil from countries that support and fund terrorism.
Plus, Dems are always outraged by anything that creates jobs.
More proof that Trump is a Russian agent. He’s reducing the price of oil in order to help Putin!
So when’s the State Department had any authority in this??
Considering that a barrel of oil is running at $47.70...does anyone on the Canada side have any real interest left to see this proceeding? I thought the Canadians needed the pricing at $75 or more for any real profit out of this pipeline deal.
More winning please.
GMTA — I’m not sure where the “foreign diplomacy” angle figures in this. State Dept? What?
Foreign commerce falls under the state department.
More proof that Trump is a Russian agent. Hes reducing the price of oil in order to help Putin!
The Left never thought about what you point out. Libs cannot reason beyond a “COEXIST” Bumper Sticker.
I especially don't like a foreign company (TransCanada) seizing Americans' land through eminent domain.
Consider - this is why Sec. of State Hillary had to sign off on the uranium deal with Russia after she secured many millions in donations to her “foundation” and her husband was paid an incredible million dollar an hour speaking fee.
The important thing is it can be done now. At the very least the section crossing the Canadian border can be done and over with so going forward the rest of the pipeline can be finished as needed or wanted. Oil companies don’t have the power they did otherwise the pipeline would have been done already.
The oil companies can afford to go ahead and get this done with the benefit of putting lots of people to work and having the infrastructure in place for when the pipeline is again needed at the level it was before.
Do you know if they are still shipping oil across the border by rail? If so; that’s enough reason right there to finish the pipeline.
The news Crushes somemore Dem, Eco, Enviro, Greenie, anti-Trump Snow-Flakes.
Excellent news. MAGA
And thousands of ‘splodin’ ecowanker noggins.

And that’s just the thugs that will be hired by DNC/Soros to “protest”. It will also create additional associated work for the restaurants who feed the “protesters”, and sign-makers, and garbage cleanup crews and police & fire. It’s wrong to say “Democrats don’t create jobs”. /sarc
It’s a matter of national security for us.
I wonder how the union bosses and their fanboys will play this?
