Request For Keystone XL Review ‘Pause’ Denied

Remember!

This country gets nothing from this except, polluting, caustic, poison.

In our air, on our land and in our drinking water!

We get No relief from the gas pumps,

your oil or gas tanks and any products made from oil!

This of course also included no decrease in your Natural Gas Bills!

It is all shipped to the Arab World!

The CEO’s of oil and gas companies, the Super-Packs, the Koch Brothers and all of our congress people that have their fingers in the till will be making millions!

Thank you President Barrack Obama

And

Just another sound reason why we need

Hillary Clinton in the White House for 8 years!

We must protect the United States from this invasion of polluting, caustic, poison.

In our air, on our land and in our drinking water from our

‘must be newest enemy’ up north in Canada?

For the money and wasted time the Canadian Government has been spending on their pipeline, they could already be shipping down the Atlantic Ocean from their Canada shoreline and out to their only destination for their garbage crude oil in the Arab countries!

A State Department spokesman said on Wednesday the United States has formally denied in writing a TransCanada Corporation request to pause the U.S. review of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline. Reuters

The United States has formally denied a TransCanada request to pause the U.S. review of the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline, a State Department spokesman said on Wednesday.

TransCanada’s request for a delay was seen by many as an attempt to avert a rejection from an increasingly environmentally focused President Barack Obama and postpone the decision until after the November 2016 presidential election.

The White House declined to comment.

TransCanada said it respects the State Department’s decision and will continue to press for approval.

  1. Mr. Walkingfox, I believe that everything you wrote here is true. I wonder if you might have any wisdom concerning a point I have written about on a few occasions and question that I pose to my US History students. While I contend the facts speak otherwise, for the sake of discussion let us assume that Keystone will create a number of good jobs, that it cannot harm the environment; that this specific type of crude can be easily refined, and that construction will lower prices for oil products for the majority of American households. The issue that delayed Federal review was a situation involving the route authorization by the state of Nebraska. The Federal reasoning was to allow the state to work out the matters which pertained to it such as deciding who in the state had the legal authority to grant the right for construction and whether or not land could be taken from residents using eminent domain.

    The modern GOP and conservative movement like to cite the idea of limited Federal government and often base opinions via application of the 10th Amendment. Why then do they support the Federal government usurping the rights of the state of Nebraska and its residents?

    You Sir have answered that question which I pose to students in your post.

    Do you have any thoughts, however, as to why people from other states do not appreciate that if certain powers are able to deny resident rights here that they themselves could easily be the next victim?

    I understand Sir that I am asking you the equivalent of explaining the reasoning of Martin Niemöller’s statement of “First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out Because I was not a Socialist …… and there was no one left to speak for me” which is a daunting task.

    Still did your ancestors and elders have any guidance as to how one may be better able to view things from different perspectives and not be unknowingly limited in their visions and understanding?

    Perhaps my question is best left to another blog entry, and likely any ‘answer’ is that I and every individual must continue are respective journey and quest for discovery. Still the particular topic of which you wrote presented itself in a way to ask you about more complex question of application.

    Best to you and yours Sir,
    Richard

      New people to my sites call be (Mr.) Joke.
      Friends call me Walkingfox or Shechaim Ohjieshan, in your case my friend Walkingfox.
      🙂
      Traditionalist have no word for Mr. Miss, Misses?
      I would like to dig into this first even though it was not one of your questions?
      I cannot vouch for the Republican Congress mind changing except to say that all of the congress republicans and many of the democrats are puppets of the Koch Brothers and the Super-Packs because of the money?
      The fact is that things, such as Keystone, have been going on for so long that the “Checks are no longer in the Mail!”
      “They have already been put into the bank and spent!”
      O.K.
      While ‘Wisdom seems to be a little strong, let’s get to work? 🙂
      Because “Wisdom” is such a strong word and I am a little weak on what congress will or can do once they become the masters of the people!
      I would like to answer by borrowing from my ancestors?
      (Why people from other states do not appreciate that if certain powers are able to deny resident rights here that they themselves could easily be the next victim?)
      Short quick introduction to my past!
      The invaders took our land, women as toys, farms with force, sometimes having an ancestor with no knowledge of non native government laws sign over land.
      That ancestor, knowing that one cannot sell Mother Earth, was thinking (Borrow for a time) and took the land back in the future, they were all arrested, put into prison, ship out west or killed!
      After President Ronald Reagan’s interference in the matter, the states made what we, the true traditional Native Americans call, Casino Indians and placed them onto our land and then they both turned their backs on the Real True Natives!
      These so called Native Americans could care less about the rest of the people, the elders, the ancestors, the culture or the ceremonies!
      O.K.
      Sorry for that, point is that the state laws are as such and these new reservations are built so that the first time these Casino Indians start to flex their muscles, the states will and can shut them down and they will also be dumped to the wayside!
      (Did your ancestors and elders have any guidance as to how one may be better able to view things from different perspectives and not be unknowingly limited in their visions and understanding?)
      My best answer, I am sorry to say, is ‘No!’

      Everyone showing up at our villages would always be welcomed and treated as family until proven otherwise.
      In the case of the invaders, otherwise came far too fast!

      • Thank you Sir for a very thought provoking response. I shall try with the name, but I fear that I will falter as the habit of Mr., Mrs., Ms., Miss, or Coach followed by the name used by peers was ingrained into my upbringing in the strawberry fields by my father and maternal grandfather.

        In the first department where I ever served as chair I was the youngest faculty member, and one of my adjuncts who was a retired and highly accomplished professor requested that I refer to him by his first name instead of Professor whenever we casually exchanged pleasantries during an exchange of classrooms. When I asked if he would observe one of my classes to critique me based upon his experience and expertise, he watched as I referred to these 18 and 19 year old freshmen as Mr. Ms., Sir, and Ma’am. His reaction was that my methodology transported him back 50 years in time to when he was student only without a paddle hanging on the wall. He conceded that while my referring to him as Professor made him feel old at first, he finally accepted that my elders managed to get those terms into my hard head as a kid and I was always going to remain a hard headed southern boy.

        It’s funny but it took my father and mother-in-law 10 years to get used to my Mr. and Mrs. Fortunately they met my best friend’s son when they visited Louisiana, and within 10 minutes my father-in-law felt like he had heard the word sir more times than he had during his entire Navy service.

        My best to you and yours Walkingfox

        (Sir laugh because I still typed Mr. from habit and just went back and deleted it….my Dad and Grandpa taught me well….much respect for your generation and that of my Grandfather’s).
