Hat tip to Ace of Spades.
The Obama administration will announce this afternoon it is rejecting a Canadian firm’s application for a permit to build and operate a massive oil pipeline across the U.S.-Canada border, according to sources who have been briefed on the matter.
However the administration will allow TransCanada to reapply after it develops an alternate route through the sensitive habitat of Nebraska’s Sandhills. Deputy Secretary of State William J. Burns will make the announcement, which comes in response to a congressionally-mandated deadline of Feb. 21 for action on the proposed Keystone pipeline.
The unemployment rate is already skyhigh thanks to overreaching Obamanomics, and pandering to ecoidiots, who have grand mal seizures over trumped-up “exploitation” crap. That’ll sure teach those eeeeevil Republicans not to cross him.
Oh and lookie here, a Canadian-Chinese business deal for oil markets will probably go off without a hitch.
Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper plans to visit China next month as his government looks to open new markets for oil sands crude in the wake of Washington’s decision to delay approval of a major pipeline from Alberta to Texas.
Harper is scheduled to fly to Beijing in the second week of February and aims to deepen economic ties with the Asian powerhouse, the prime minister’s office said in a statement on Wednesday after he met with China’s ambassador.
One of the reasons gas prices are so high (besides speculators) is Obama’s refusal to drill for our own oil resources and vilifying the petroleum companies as ”big, evil, greedy creatures destroying the planet”. But by gawd, he’ll loan Brazil $2 Billion to drill their own.
Obama and his merry band of morons have to go.
