BREAKING: Obama rejects Keystone pipeline

 
English: Barack Obama delivers a speech at the...

Apparently Barack Obama is a fan of dependency on middle east oil, and no fan of new jobs. At least, this is what you could take from his decision to reject the Keystone pipeline.

The Obama administration is set to reject the long-delayed TransCanada oil sands crude project later Wednesday following opposition from environmentalists.

After delaying the project past the November 2012 election, President Obama was compelled by Congress to decide by Feb. 21 on whether to approve the pipeline that would sharply boost the flow of oil from Canada’s oil sands.

For the record, this is a rejection of the application in its current form. There is talk Obama will engage in a new application process once the company mades adjustments to a portion of the planned route.

That said, Obama’s own advisors recommended more access to resources be approved.

“[W]e should allow more access to oil, natural gas and coal opportunities on federal lands,” states the year-end report released Tuesday by the President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness. 

The report does not specifically mention the Keystone XL oil pipeline, but it endorses moving forward quickly with projects that “deliver electricity and fuel,” including pipelines.

Specific job estimates on the Keystone pipeline are all over the map, but there seems to be consensus the project will create at least 5,000 jobs and could generate up to 20,000 when all is said and done.

Obama’s true agenda is showing its ugly head and unfortunately it appears to have its priorities completely backwards. Well, that depends of what the end goal is, of course.

    Obama’s “agenda” is to follow Alinsky and the Cloward-Piven “strategy” to overburden and wreck American society and the economy in favor of socialist, command-and-control, gray, hopeless mediocrity. Why in God’s name is there no movement in House and Senate to start an impeachment investigation on the basis of malfeasance INTENDED to “transform” the Nation by wrecking it?! WHY in God’s name is Obama not being subjected to an inquiry that could lead to a charge of TREASON? He has refused, with outward contempt for the Constitution and his oath of office, to defend and preserve the Constitution. He now has the intention, as did the impeached –and should have been declared treasonous — Clinton, to transfer top-secret military information to Russia just as Clinton deliberatedly did for China! Remember his “facilitation” of missile launch codes, other telemetry and data through the now-defunct Loral Corp and also data on our “W-87 nuclear warhead? Our so-called representatives and senators totally failed THEIR oversight duty in favor of Beltway collegiality, compromise and party solidarity!

      Well its a no brainier why none of the hacks in Washington will rock the boat a expose Obummer for what he is. If you were part of a criminal organisation that afforded you endless supplies of wealth an power ,, would you? Washington is so full corruption it is going to take something very drastic or tragic before anything good begins to take place. Pray for America because it is getting ready to go through some sifting,,,an its going to be tough.

    No surprises here! When did you ever see one Muslim attacking another except in the case of tribal affiliation as the Sunnis and Shiites and Kurds are presently doing!
    Evidently a lot of supporters were not listening to the “Kenyon Flash” during his campaign speechifying when he promised to fundamentally change this country He is doing exactly has he promised plus he has Hugo Chavez as a role model!! Tyrants and dictators follow the same schedule/agenda as “Obummer” is.
    He could be classed as a treasonous faker!

    Remember also this is at the same time he wants another $1.4 trillion added to his credit limit.

    “ Well, that depends of what the end goal is, of course.” Here’s his goal. Always has been.

      And then Obama will demand another and another environmental study and his EPA agency will drag out the study, and then we the working class will all be on Welfare or unemployment, or just plain living on the streets, and then he will deem t hat against the law and put us all in prison, and take all of what is left of our possessions and pride for himself. Obama is a Communist.

    Considering Mr. Obama’s rejection of the Keystone pipeline despite a number of other pipelines going across Nebraska, his statement he want to bankrupt the coal industry, his moratoriums and roadblocks to new offshore and domestic drilling, refusing to allow development of shale oil,  using the EPA to bypass Congress which rejected Cap and Trade, raising future auto mpg requirements to near  unattainable levels, and his refusal to allow a port closer to the Panama Canal than others improve its harbor, one has to wonder if  Mr. Obama is trying to protect the environment or collapse the American economy. It would seem that he’s following the Cloward and Piven Plan quite well.
