Safe Mode: On
obama and the democraps kill the Keystone Pipeline, gas prices surge upward

Keystone XL's 'death by paper cuts'Chris Woodward - OneNewsNow - 3/9/2012 9:50:00 AM

The democratic-controlled Senate has rejected a Republican bid to expedite
approval of the Keystone XL pipeline. But a communications professional
says that's not the whole story.

Rick Manning of Americans for Limited Government (ALG),
a non-partisan network committed to a advancing free-market reforms,
says even if the Obama administration reverses course on the pipeline,
environmental leftist organizations are poised to shut it down.


"There's a group called Advocates for the West based in Boise, Idaho, [that] is using a local, aggressive legal strategy saying You can't use the roads in Idaho or Montana
through lawsuits, based upon the fact that they are using them for
transporting heavy equipment up to Alberta, Canada, in order to make it
so they can't actually pull the oil out of the ground," Manning
explains.He calls it a "classic 'not-in-my-backyard' strategy."

"What we see continually in these kinds of situations is death by a
thousand paper cuts -- you get a lawsuit in local jurisdiction, you get a
lawsuit at state level, [and] you get another lawsuit on a totally
different issue," the ALG communications director details. "It
effectively ties up a development project."

TransCanada, the company behind the Keystone XL pipeline, is moving
forward with the southern portion of the project, which runs from
Cushing, Oklahoma, to refineries along the Gulf Coast. Meanwhile,
TransCanada spokesman Terry Cunha has told OneNewsNow that
the company is still working on a reroute of the pipeline to avoid the
so-called "ecologically sensitive" areas of Nebraska, as that is a major
issue with some of the pipeline's opponents.

  • Oil prices are high because commodity traders are gaming the system.

    • @buttkracken someone keeps thumbing down comments like this. They are completely fact based, but they want to blame obama for every single one of this country's problems. Obama is trying to stop commodity traders from doing this. The 100% increase in the price of a gallon of gas over the past 6 years is not caused by supply and demand. This legal loophole that allows wall street to bet on the futures of oil prices is trying to be made illegal by obama. It would greatly reduce the price of oil, y More..

    • @dfaugust2k they are speculating on the future price of the oil. buy cheap sell high. can you understand the difference between high and low? like your intelligence level is really low vs einstein who had a high level. Get it? or still too complicated for you? I'd pity you, but you're dangerous, I'd kill you, but I'd go to jail. So i'll just sit here and make fun of your small brain all day if I have to. Maybe you'll do some reading, maybe not. Either way I hope you...

      Nope...one word....opec....they turn the tap up or down and control the market price.

      Not one drop of oil from the pipeline has to go to Americans....not one drop of oil drilled in the US has to go to the US market.

    • @LoPull
      You said it yourself.

      For years OPEC has lowered and raised oil production to control prices, more oil, cheaper prices, it's fairly obvious.

      Pump enough oil, and the price has nowhere to go but down.

      But you can't admit that, even though the facts are right in front of your face, due to your partisanship.

  • OPEC:
    O=over-
    P=priced
    E=energy
    C=countries

    OPEC makes tons of money selling the U.S. 50% of our oil and they keep prices high, knowing we don't have the balls to drill enough in our own country. We need drill more and drown the markets in oil so that the price goes down.

I know that in the end he and everyone associated with him and those who pull his strings will be destroyed along with their "One World Order" agenda.

    • @Nagold nothing, decisions like this mean nothing about gas prices. It's the people who are buying the oil that change the price. People like Goldman sachs who buy up tankers and keep them offshore til the price is driven up and they can sell them at a premium.

    • @Nagold I know a lot about it. I have my masters in economics from the University of Tennessee. You feel like you know everything about it from political radio. Read something about oil speculation and oil futures and you will understand. It should be illegal. It IS the reason for high prices today, do research. I'm not going to argue on this post any more. It's like arguing with a dead dog.
