State Dept: Er, we’re gonna’
need to delay that Keystone
pipeline another few months

Hot Air, by Erika Johnsen

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/2/2013 4:51:58 AM

A couple weeks back, Nebraska Governor Heineman approved the portion of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline that would run through his state, obliterating the Obama administration’s last, best excuse for continuing to delay on what has become a politically explosive project. After what have already amounted to years of various reviews with positive results, the State Department insisted that they just needed a little bit longer to finalize yet another one of these reviews, and that if everyone could just wait until the end of March, they should have their final decision by around then. Yeah. About that.

My guess is the Saudis are behind the delay so they can continue their monopoly on oil prices which are set to hit 4 bucks a gallon again.Since Obama´s pimpmobile is funded by taxpayers,it could be 20 a gallon and he wouldn´t care. This is going to add to food inflation also which Obama and the left hopes will fight the obesity problem.

"When people can no longer afford food,they´ll lose weight through attrition".

You´re probably right, 1. I can see no other reason for the State Department to be involved in this issue.

Obama´s Energy Czar left office yesterday. The new one will take 6 months to learn the job, and then further discussion on the Keystone Pipeline can be taken up again. Canada is insane to count on any cooperation from the U.S. under the current regime. They would be smart to look elsewhere. Obama cares for no one other than the person he sees in the mirror.

This delay is yet more evidence how much Obama appreciates the support of the environmentally ill.

In so many ways, this Leftist regime feels more and more like we´ve been taken over by some foreign power. Healthcare we don´t want, energy we can´t get at, spending that won´t stop, government stifling employment, etc, etc., etc.

I understand that the pipeline is right now being built. The real hitch is a 50 foot section that actually connects across the border for which "il puce" will not issue a permit.

It reminds me of a 36 story skyscraper in San Diego years ago that had permits and had the frame constructed when the permits were recalled because of a new undefinable regulation about "sight pollution" some idiot thought up.

The contractors kept building and the inspectors kept red tagging the project with threats of arrest. The contractors continued tearing off the red tags on a weekly basis and kept on building.

After about six months an inspector showed up and told the supervisor to "sign this." It was the permit. The inspectors had given up.

The keystone contractors should connect the line across the border then defy anyone to stop them even with armed resistance if necessary. This is an illegitimate regime and an illegitimate impediment. There´s not one environmental question that has not been answered satisfactorily. The American people are the victims..... again!

No prosperity will be permitted until after the economic collapse, then ValJar and Mr. o. will step in and "fix" things. Although just like everything else they touch, it will turn to another significant disaster. We are so Pelosied.

That "significant disaster" of which you speak, #11, is what this illicit regime is pushing for. il PuceCare, gun control, Benghazi, F&F! You name it. When things are a heap of garbage, then they can be heroes and come to the rescue of the US and make things "right." Right = communist. It will take an armed revolt to stop this nonsense if it goes much further.

While Gov. Rick Perry is bowing out of Texas politics after an unprecedented three four-year terms in office, history could also be made if the Governor’s Mansion stays home to a Republican. If Attorney General Greg Abbott wins his campaign to succeed Perry — and he is favored to do so — his wife would become the first Latina to be the first lady of Texas. Cecilia Phalen Abbott, 54, has been a regular at her husband’s side as he travels across the state for his campaign.

Ukraine crisis: Moscow rally

Tens of thousands have joined a rally in the Russian capital Moscow to oppose its intervention in Ukraine, a day before Crimeans vote on whether to secede and join Russia. Holding Russian and Ukrainian flags, they shouted: "The occupation of Crimea is Russia´s disgrace." A smaller pro-Moscow rally was being held elsewhere. Moscow supports the vote, which Ukraine and the West have dismissed as illegal. Kiev says Russian "provocateurs" are behind clashes in eastern Ukraine. Three people have died in pro- and anti-Moscow rallies in the cities of Donetsk and Kharkiv with sides blaming each other. Russia´s military intervention in the Crimean peninsula -

Earlier this week, the campaign of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) released an ad with no words. Only Mitch McConnell´s smiling face. The Internet responded in kind by inserting McConnell´s face where it was meant to be. No, not in super PAC ads. At the end of ´90s sitcom title sequences, obviously. A day later, his tea party opponent, Matt Bevin, made his own remix of the ad. Then, the Daily Show decided to go all scientific method on this campaign ad, to discover if any song existed that did not pair perfectly with this footage of McConnell. Their

By now it’s settled on most people, including Democrats, that the loss of Alex Sink to David Jolly in Florida’s 13th Congressional District was, in the words of the New York Times, “devastating” to Democrats. It’s a district Ms. Sink carried in her unsuccessful race for governor against Rick Scott, a district that Barack Obama carried in his two elections, and a district that demographically now favors Democrats. In addition, Ms. Sink raised more money and ran a better campaign than Jolly. Even Bill Clinton lent his efforts to her campaign. And yet she lost.

President Barack Obama´s national security team discussed the Ukraine crisis in a session at the White House on Saturday after a last-ditch bid to find a diplomatic solution to the Cold War-style standoff with Russia floundered. Secretary of State John Kerry, who just returned from talks with his Russian counterpart in London, was at the White House meeting along with Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel. Obama did not attend the meeting but was being briefed about it and other developments involving Ukraine, said Laura Lucas Magnuson, a spokeswoman for the White House National Security Council.

The Obama administration on Friday announced plans to relinquish U.S. control over management of the Internet to the “global Internet community.” While the announcement of the plan was sure to please international critics (and some Democrats), it created concern among business leaders and others who depend on a smoothly functioning web. Oh, and it may lead to a global web tax, as well. Former Bush administration State Department senior advisor Christian Whiton told The Daily Caller: “U.S. management of the Internet has been exemplary and there is no reason to give this away — especially in return for nothing.

The Houston father who police say fatally shot a 17-year-old boy who was inside his daughter’s bedroom early Thursday morning will likely not be charged, an area prosecutor told MyFoxHouston.com. Although a grand jury will review the case, prosecutor Warren Diepraam said it is unlikely that the father will be charged. "What was going on in the person´s mind at the time of the shooting, [not] what they found out after the fact" is key, Diepraam said. "They´re looking at what he was thinking when he made the decision to shoot." The investigation into the shooting is ongoing, and a grand jury will

WASHINGTON — Scott Brown, the Republican who admitted he wore pink leather shorts on his first date with his wife-to-be, is back. And Democrats are scared to death. It’s not that Democrats are particularly scared that the 54-year-old former Massachusetts senator is going to get elected as a New Hampshire senator — although it’s conceivable that a charming, carpetbagging, middling politician could jump across the border and unseat Jeanne Shaheen. But Shaheen is popular, and strategists don’t think that flinty “Live Free or Die” voters will welcome the Boston transplant with open arms. This is what’s really freaking out Democrats:

Well, of course they are. And I’m sure these “requests” are just as legitimate as the requests made by Sudeten Germans asking Hitler to “protect” them in 1938. Vladimir Putin has missed his calling. Rather than working as an autocrat, he should have gone into the theater. Actor, director, stage manager — there isn’t anything he couldn’t do. Putin has designed a production in Ukraine that should win him a Tony Award.

Obama has his Munich moment

Back in September, John Kerry told Washington Democrats that America faced a “Munich moment” in deciding how to respond to Syria’s use of chemical weapons. He called Bashar al-Assad a “two-bit dictator” who would commit more atrocities unless he was stopped. Right idea, wrong war. The real Munich moment of our times is taking place in Ukraine. Vladimir Putin is on the march, and there’s no telling how far he’ll go if he’s allowed to gobble up Crimea without paying a serious price. That is the lesson of Munich, the infamous agreement in 1938 when Britain’s Neville Chamberlain struck a

Police are investigating the possibility that the pilot of missing Flight MH370 hijacked his own aircraft in a bizarre political protest. The Mail on Sunday has learned that Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was an ‘obsessive’ supporter of Malaysia’s opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim. And hours before the doomed flight left Kuala Lumpur it is understood 53-year-old Shah attended a controversial trial in which Ibrahim was jailed for five years. Campaigners say the politician, the key challenger to Malaysia’s ruling party, was the victim of a long-running smear campaign and had faced trumped-up charges.

Last week, the U.S. Tenth Circuit decided a case that should reverberate on Capitol Hill. In Kerr v. Hickenlooper, five Colorado legislators sought “standing” to challenge a state constitutional amendment. The three-judge panel — consisting of Carter and Clinton appointees — ruled in favor of the legislators’ standing. This decision should embolden members of Congress who correctly believe that President Obama has encroached upon Congress’ constitutional authority. Indeed, Congress should do no less in defending its authority than the five Colorado state legislators.
