Dakota Access Pipeline must be shut down, judge orders

Dakota Access Pipeline must be shut down, judge orders thumbnail

The Dakota Access Pipeline must shut down by August 5 during an in-depth environmental review of the controversial project, a district court ruled Monday in a defeat for the Trump administration.

The ruling marks a major win for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and environmental groups that have fought for years against the pipeline.

In its Monday decision, the United States District Court for the District of Columbia vacated an easement granted by the US Army Corps of Engineers that allowed Dakota Access to build a segment of the pipeline beneath Lake Oahe in North and South Dakota.

The court had previously ruled the Corps violated the National Environmental Policy Act when it granted the easement because it had failed to produce an Environmental Impact Statement.

Now, the court is saying the pipeline must shut down and be emptied while the environmental impact report is prepared. The Corps has said it will take approximately 13 months to create such a report.

Energy Transfer, which developed the pipeline, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

After months of protests and lawsuits, the Dakota Access Pipeline started operating in June 2017. The $3.7 billion project, which spans 1,172 miles and carries crude from North Dakota’s shale fields to Illinois, was advanced for approval by the Trump administration early that year.

Opponents have argued the pipeline could contaminate drinking water and destroy burial and prayer sites of Native Americans.

    More garbage from Europe globalists, of the World Economical Forum. Hilarious how Europe is populated with mentally challenged people. It is funny how the mentally challenged ideologies have spread through the world. WEF still think they will be a great reset with all these utopia green garbage. Stupid people in Whites Western nations are really providing me with great laugh and entertainment.

    The harder-to-abate sectors have a vital role to play in meeting the Paris Agreement targets.
    We can achieve zero-emissions in these industries – but has COVID-19 thrown a spanner in the works, or opened up opportunities for a Great Reset?

    “VIVE MA MORT“

    Let’s drink to that, SRC! (Apparently the low-quality fool from Montreal doesn’t understand his own language.lol).

    We need to reidentify with the greatness of Rome and throw that dead-jew-on-a-stick in the well and his offshoot Marx with him.

    We need to glorify strong people, not commie weaklings.
    We need to see the third world as the enemy and throw them off our lands and most of all the (((leaders))) of the third world proletariat and their Anglo water carriers like that stinking pos SRC. We need to learn that race is the defining category of any civilization worth that name. And we need to stop telling ourselves that we owe the third world a living. And now that we have machines to do the cotton picking, we don’t needs these crack dealers for anything. For us, black lives don’t matter, they are just a nuisance, an embarrassement, who are going to provide us with the excuse to get rid of them. They are about to lose black privilege, namely the right to be tolerated in white civilization. You have been weighed and found wanting.

    Why does nobody talk about the articles on here ?
    The self righteous Sioux must walk everywhere and live like Amish people without fossil fuels ?
    Otherwise its a pretty hollow victory in the age of global warming.

    People CAN live without fossil fuels- learn from the Amish, Hutterites, Mennonites. They aren’t obsessed with keeping up with the Jones and use common sense. Things should be retaught the old fashioned way (examples: washing laundry by hand, writing by hand using printing and cursive writing, making toys, furniture and clothing out of wood and cloth and stuff like that). Technology will not last us forever- oil and other non-renewable resources are finite. To prevent food shortages, stock food in cans, jars and in bulk. Public education is going downhills- a piece of paper ain’t worth shit (Allow for homeschooling in all countries).

    The Negro is the most primitive of all races. Everyone know this, but only neurotic Whites deny it.  Coons are least evolved, generally more muscular, more impulsive and of lesser intelligence than the others.  In other words, closer to our cousins, the chimpanzees.  All kinds of tests, along with simple observation worldwide have shown this.  Not just Whites in former times, but current Arabs, Berbers, Indians (in India) and Mongoloids of all sorts freely admit this.  In Mexico many speak of desiring to “mejorar la raza” — improve the race — i.e., by having offspring with Whites or at least anybody but Negroes.

    Today’s riots and aimless murders in Negro areas of American cities are blatant testimony to this fact.  Coons cannot restrain themselves;  they are driven by their genetic roots to kill and destroy.  Only spoiled White brats, bored with cabin fever due to the ChiCom virus, come out en masse and encourage the darkies to do what their genes urge them to.  The media Jew, of course, loves it all, since “if it bleeds, it leads.”

    Meanwhile, it’s anti-Trump bookselling time.  Warmongering chicken hawk John Bolton, a former adviser to the president, is making money hand over fist with a kiss-and-tell screed attacking his former employer.  Trump’s niece, 55-year-old Mary Trump, says she didn’t get enough $millions of inheritance because Donald J. jewed her out of her full share of her grandfather’s (and his father’s) wealth.  Therefore, she concludes, he is a danger to democracy.  (Mainly hers, that is.)

    As all of this goes on, the country is sinking into bankruptcy, which few seem to notice.  The Communist Democrats, led by Ms. Stalin herself, Nancy Pelosi, are blaming the president for everything imaginable, if possible including the quiet sun.  Their stunningly corrupt presidential candidate, Joe Biden, says as little as possible from his basement dungeon, lest his mental deterioration become too obvious to Whites.  (Negroes feel comfortable with a man who is as stupid as they are, and will soon be more so.)

    Our politicized judiciary, the best money can buy, has now told the builders of a pipeline across North Dakota, that they may not build that vitally needed pipe.  After all, they are treading on “holy” Redskin land.

    The madmen are winning.

    Despite the fervent attempts of Donald Trump to prevent the publication of Mary Trump’s tell-all book, a judge ruled the book is a go.

    Mary Trump has largely avoided the limelight since Donald became president.

    After Mr. Trump won the election in 2016, she described the experience as the “worst night of my life…. our country will suffer in unimaginable ways.”

    “We should be judged harshly,” she tweeted. “I grieve for our country.”

    “I was born in New York, and I’ve never seen the city so scared and uninhabitable. I fear we’re on the brink of a second civil war”

    https://www.rt.com/op-ed/494087-new-york-blm-civil-war/

    It is time that all Eurasian countries take their precautions and withdraw from all globalist institutions, based in NYC, out of safety precautions. Clubs like the UN, SC, WB, and the rest. And set up new clubs in the middle of Eurasia. These new clubs will no longer be based on “the winners of WW2” (many of those winners ain’t winners in 2020, that’s for sure).

  13. Abraham van Helsing on Wed, 8th Jul 2020 2:42 am 

    It is still the best option, that when the country “devolves”, Trump has the command over the army:

    “The Marxists of BLM are gonna succeed in securing the biggest thing they despise – a second term for Trump”

    https://www.rt.com/op-ed/492842-marxists-blm-trump-second-term/

    It remains to be seen though if orderly elections can proceed in the first place or if honest counting is possible in such a polarized environment and if a result is going to be accepted by the losing party (“fraud!”, “recount!”).

    The so-called Third World nations are poor as the communist “charities” want their viewers to believe. People who live in those countries are able to get by on less, not caring what the so-called First World countries have (flat screen TVs, EVs). A poor person in South America would be considered as opposed to someone who lives on a dollar a day in Africa. Money doesn’t buy happiness. Why do you think I am miserable.

    As an old saying goes “The best things in life are free”. I wish I had my sanity
