The Corp has denied the permit for the last stretch of pipeline. They called the head of the Standing Rock and made the announcement. It will no longer run under the Missouri River.

OMG!

It's like a miracle. The Veterans had arrived to stand between the water protectors and the sheriffs office gave a press conference they would back off, but NO ONE expected this!

This was the earlier news I'd found but was waiting for another source before posting. Because it came out of Oregon I was concerned it was a hoax, but NOPE!!!

"We will not fight tonight, we will dance!", said Rami Bald Eagle, Cheyenne River Lakota Tribal Leader shared the great news, with much celebration breaking out among the people.

Thousands of U.S. Veterans have boots on the ground at the Standing Rock Protest, many more than expected. Tim King, former editor of Salem-News.com, is there and heard the announcement.

U.S. military Veterans have been standing "out front" for a couple of days with more of their brothers and sisters-in-arms arriving daily. No, they do not have weapons.

I've been keeping an eye on the headlines of this ordeal, but with all the election stuff I never got around to figuring out all of the in's & out's.

Was there not possible compromise in this situation to be had? Couldn't it run along the 'border', or go that extra mile to worker through a 'safe' zone? Is not there an incentive that could be offered to the Native American's?

From what I know about the Lakota Nation, there is some seriously detrimental impoverishment dynamics involved in that region.

They have the permit but I bet it's delayed so every body can go home for Christmas and the big party in DC. Then away they go again.

this is still breaking so will be back in a few, I need to see all this!

Here are two links, one to Bloomberg that explains the fiscal problems the company faces by proceeding cause even if it had gone thru they were going to lose millions.

newsletters.briefs.bloomberg.com...

And another regarding the construction and engineering studies that backed up the Natives that the pipeline would leak and foul up the river, plus no one took into consideration the landslide issues in the area.

It will get built. President, House and Senate will approve it. Same with FINISHING the XL pipeline. Most of it is already BUILT!!! Just one stretch that crosses the border. All of it will be completed. Screw the Indians and anyone else.

It has to cross the river upstream from the land; even if it's off sacredly held ground, I'm not sure there's really a safe-zone in this case.

Fantastic news. Hopefully, they can re-route to a safer path and avoid all this ugliness in the future. Sometimes $ isn't everything.

Plant enough of the right trees the right way will solve landslides. Make them overkill the durability of the pipe across such a spanse will minimize leak concerns.

I dont get how there's no way that a flow of funds to the tribe(s) for the gas flow, actual tribal involvement with the operation, and / or other incentives to boot such as bringing in some agricultural experts to big some mega greenhouse operations, or whatever along those lines on top of some proceeds to ensure that the tribe can prosper on their own and collect checks.

The pipeline will still be built, however not at that location anymore.

Still, this is a good thing I suppose.

You plant a gridwork of trees all meshed out with both wide root & deep patterned roots, along with other specific ground cover type plants all in between. If there's a river there's water. If there's a will there's a way (especially when there's MONEY to be made).

Here is Standing Rocks Official Statement.




standwithstandingrock.net...



Cannon Ball, N.D.β€” The department of the Army will not approve an easement that will allow the proposed Dakota Access Pipeline to cross under Lake Oahe. The following statement was released by Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Chairman Dave Archambault II.

β€œToday, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced that it will not be granting the easement to cross Lake Oahe for the proposed Dakota Access Pipeline. Instead, the Corps will be undertaking an environmental impact statement to look at possible alternative routes. We wholeheartedly support the decision of the administration and commend with the utmost gratitude the courage it took on the part of President Obama, the Army Corps, the Department of Justice and the Department of the Interior to take steps to correct the course of history and to do the right thing.

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and all of Indian Country will be forever grateful to the Obama Administration for this historic decision.

We want to thank everyone who played a role in advocating for this cause. We thank the tribal youth who initiated this movement. We thank the millions of people around the globe who expressed support for our cause. We thank the thousands of people who came to the camps to support us, and the tens of thousands who donated time, talent, and money to our efforts to stand against this pipeline in the name of protecting our water. We especially thank all of the other tribal nations and jurisdictions who stood in solidarity with us, and we stand ready to stand with you if and when your people are in need.

Throughout this effort I have stressed the importance of acting at all times in a peaceful and prayerful manner – and that is how we will respond to this decision. With this decision we look forward to being able to return home and spend the winter with our families and loved ones, many of whom have sacrificed as well. We look forward to celebrating in wopila, in thanks, in the coming days.

We hope that Kelcey Warren, Governor Dalrymple, and the incoming Trump administration respect this decision and understand the complex process that led us to this point. When it comes to infrastructure development in Indian Country and with respect to treaty lands, we must strive to work together to reach decisions that reflect the multifaceted considerations of tribes.

Treaties are paramount law and must be respected, and we welcome dialogue on how to continue to honor that moving forward. We are not opposed to energy independence, economic development, or national security concerns but we must ensure that these decisions are made with the considerations of our Indigenous peoples.

To our local law enforcement, I hope that we can work together to heal our relationship as we all work to protect the lives and safety of our people. I recognize the extreme stress that the situation caused and look forward to a future that reflects more mutual understanding and respect.

Again, we are deeply appreciative that the Obama Administration took the time and effort to genuinely consider the broad spectrum of tribal concerns. In a system that has continuously been stacked against us from every angle, it took tremendous courage to take a new approach to our nation-to-nation relationship, and we will be forever grateful.

You didn't read my link to Bloomberg news,
Any pipeline not completed financially will be then called a "stranded asset".

In the case of DAPL if they don't have oil pumping by Jan 1,2017 every single one of their shippers contracts are up for renegotiation. The original contracts were signed when the price of oil was high. So the company is going to take a massive financial hit already. Plus the Baaken fields aren't pumping the amount they'd anticipated so another loss for the company.

With that kind of attitude, do the world a favor and don't reproduce. The world needs less people with your mentality. Thank you! 😁
