Today Trump has signed multiple executive orders with respect to the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines. We can expect to see large-scale protesting for this, especially when construction resumes.

www.cnbc.com...




Trump signed executive orders that will make it easier for TransCanada to construct the Keystone XL pipeline and for Energy Transfer Partners to build the final uncompleted portion of the Dakota Access pipeline.

The president said both executive actions were subject to terms and conditions to be negotiated by the United States.

He also signed three additional executive orders to expedite environmental reviews for "high priority infrastructure projects," streamline the permitting process for domestic manufacturing and to insist pipeline companies buy materials from U.S. companies.


This news did have a fast effect on the stock prices of TransCanada and a few others - but with economic growth and investment, there are always consequences.




Shares of Energy Transfer Partners were up about 4 percent, while TransCanada's stock rose more than 3.5 percent after the president signed the orders.


The article also discusses Trump's threats to pull the U.S. out of and defund the Paris Climate Agreement, and the President's conviction that he will cancel Obama's Climate Action Plan.

Obviously not every decision Trump makes will be popular, as with any politician. But it does appear that he is following through with his statement of job creation and economic growth.

According to President Trump, these projects will create 28,000 jobs. He also says the pipes themselves will be made by American steelworkers.

I've got to say I am against it.

I hope the Protectors are fairing well during this winter, and I hope the help and support they receive will multiply in light of this.

If the pipeline project is a private business project on private lands, how can the US Government negotiate the terms and conditions? Shouldn't they be arbitrators in the process, mediating for both sides?

Is this still not in place?
www.army.mil...


The Department of the Army will not approve an easement that would allow the proposed Dakota Access Pipeline to cross under Lake Oahe in North Dakota, the Army's Assistant Secretary for Civil Works announced today. Jo-Ellen Darcy said she based her decision on a need to explore alternate routes for the Dakota Access Pipeline crossing. Her office had announced on November 14, 2016 that it was delaying the decision on the easement to allow for discussions with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, whose reservation lies 0.5 miles south of the proposed crossing. Tribal officials have expressed repeated concerns over the risk that a pipeline rupture or spill could pose to its water supply and treaty rights.


I'd watch this close to see what happens, but I think they have to find an alternate route and not put the Sioux tribe in jeopardy. It was the first bit of common sense displayed in that whole mess and should have shut any trouble off at the pass. (I hate that cliche)

It's tough to answer that question without knowing what specifically is in those two executive orders. According to the article, the 1st exec. order makes it "easier for TransCanada to construct the Keystone XL Pipeline", so perhaps it has more to do with environmental policies than it does with the privately-owned land?

I'm not really sure. Good question.

This is bad. Fist of all it barely helps any Americans. It's not enough fuel to help us in the long run. It only benefits powerful, corporate oil companies.

the other big issues is taking land, eminent domain.

A joke anyway with the credit scam.

Where by states pay to offset their polluting.

There is no net reduction. In fact it's the opposite.

You do realize the oil is currently transported on rail which is inherently more dangerous.

Coincidentally rail owned by a huge DNC contributor.

No wonder subject is cause ($$$) for lefties.

I think it's about crossing the country's borders.
I'm all for pipe production with Canada manufacturing our side, and the states manufacturing their side.

Something Trump has no problem with, and has displayed a compunction for a willingness to use it without a second thought.

Eminent domain should also prove to be a problem should Trump persist with his plan to build his wall.

Who is this DNC contributor you're referring to? I ask because I'm curious, now.

He's a piece of garbage who is invested in said pipeline.

Looks like the Native Americans will be back to protest and attacked by riot police.

So Trump, the anti-globalist-establishment man, green lights the North American Union's energy corridor.

He is alternatively uninvesting from the Buffet Dictatorship.
