Trump Illegally Approved Oil Pipeline From Canada

Trump Illegally Approved Oil Pipeline From Canada thumbnail

Native American tribes in Montana and South Dakota sued the Trump administration on Monday, claiming it approved an oil pipeline from Canada without considering potential damage to cultural sites from spills and construction.

Attorneys for the Rosebud Sioux tribe and Fort Belknap Indian Reservation asked U.S. District Judge Brian Morris in Great Falls, Montana, to rescind the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline, issued last year by the U.S. State Department.

The tribes argue President Donald Trump brushed aside their rights and put their members at risk when he reversed President Barack Obama’s rejection of the $8 billion TransCanada Corp. project.

The line would carry up to 830,000 barrels (35 million gallons) of crude daily along a 1,184-mile (1,900-kilometer) path from Canada to Nebraska. The route passes through the ancestral homelands of the Rosebud Sioux in central South Dakota and the Gros Ventre and Assiniboine Tribes in Montana.

“The tribes are talking about cultural sites, archaeological sites, burial grounds, graveyards — none of that has been surveyed and it’s in the way of the pipeline,” said Natalie Landreth, an attorney with the Native American Rights Fund, which is representing the tribes.

The tribes said a spill from the line could damage a South Dakota water supply system that serves more than 51,000 people including on the Rosebud, Pine Ridge and Lower Brule Indian Reservations.

An existing TransCanada pipeline, also called Keystone, suffered a spill last year that released almost 10,000 barrels (407,000 gallons) of oil near Amherst, South Dakota.

State Department spokeswoman Julia Mason said the agency had no public response to the lawsuit. The department has jurisdiction over the pipeline because it would cross the U.S.-Canadian border.

Calgary-based TransCanada does not comment on litigation and was not named as a party in the case.

In August, U.S. District Judge Brian Morris ordered the State Department to conduct a more thorough review of Keystone XL’s path through Nebraska. The move came in response to litigation from environmentalists and after state regulators changed the route.

In yet another lawsuit involving the line, the American Civil Liberties Union and its Montana affiliate sued the U.S. government last week for the release of details related to preparations for anticipated protests against the line.

The groups cited confrontations between law enforcement and protesters, including many Native Americans, which turned violent during construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline through South Dakota.

    Fat Boy is not going to let this happen.
    Who cares if you break a few laws?

    Injuns don’t own any land. It’s federal land. If they got a few million compensation they would shut their retarded, racist, commie pie holes. All tribes let the land be fracked of they get money. Hypocrites.

    Everything trump approves is illegal. God, I wish hitler would come back and fix you commies real good. Hopefully Jesus will finish you off real quick.

    INJUNDUCKS – Are you really as stupid as you sound? There is a LOT of land owned by the Native tribes. It is also sovereign land.

    Jesus isn’t coming back, ever. That’s another one of those ridiculous myths that has NO support in the historical record. But those facts are probably a little deep for your pea-sized intellect.

    El Cheeto Trumpet..send in Custer and the 7th Calvalry to woop their ungrateful asses. After all we done for them and their ancestors…

    Trump is too stupid to understand the complex consequences and knock-on effects from his shoot-from-the-hip decisions. It’s all about maintaining his base and self-aggrandizement. His supporters are too stupid to care.

    The lawyers love it.

    Not to mention certain Europeans of the right-wing variety.

    The white devils will never understand the spiritual quality of the original occupants of North America. Trump is an amalgamation of the the soulless ignoramuses that are hellbent on scraping the Earth clean to satisfy their appetite for destruction. The true owners of the land don’t believe in land ownership which allowed the rapists to betray their trust. After the bottleneck works its magic it will be up to tribes in all of their various constructions to find a workable lifestyle to carry on.

    How can you live with your guilt, white devil?

    Is that an admission of guilt, Clitoridectomy?

    America’s oil boom is a fraud

    The whole boom was fake. It didn’t add to wealth; it subtracted from it. Accumulated losses over the last five years tote to more than $200 billion, with $36 billion lost in the Bakken shale fields in North Dakota alone.

    “Is that an admission of guilt, Clitoridectomy?”

    No, we had nothing to do with “Indians” other than paying 60 hard guilders for Manhattan.

    You brought up the topic, remember? So stop your evasive dialectical footwork,

    So again: how can you live with your guilt, white devil?

    Or are you only interested in throwing dirt at others?

    Asking the question is answering it.

    You just described how you will come to your end.

    ghung, are you preparing for heavy rain? If I remember you are on high ground.

    I have no guilt Clingleberries. I live in the melting pot where a majority of the inhabitants work hard to live and let live despite altf#%ks like you pushing the Fourth Reich. We have been at this for centuries and have stumbled mightily along the way but we haven’t given up and the Grifter is excellent at getting the nondeplorables motivated and focused on the challenges ahead. You on the other hand are having birth pains in the inevitability of multiculturalism. Diversity, thy bitch is the Clog.

    “We have been at this for centuries and have stumbled mightily along the way but we haven’t given up and the Grifter is excellent at getting the nondeplorables motivated and focused on the challenges ahead. You on the other hand are having birth pains in the inevitability of multiculturalism”

    Centuries? History is not your thing, eh? One wonders what is. There is nothing inevitable about multicult, it is a deliberate policy pushed through by your owners since 1965. Yugoslavia, Iraq, Syria, USSR and Ukraine prove that multicult is NOT irreversible but instead that multi-ethnic societies fall apart at the first opportunity.

    Eurasia were the killing fields of the 20th century, thanks to communism, which caused the death of tens of millions. And disgusting Americans allied themselves to these monsters, because they knew they combined could deliberately destroy Europe and take its place.

    Now Russia is on the European side and China and its New Silk Road project is flirting with Europe as well. Together we can finally create a multipolar world, that is “multicultural” but segregated and give the finger to the “benevolent hegemon”.

    North-America is going to be the killing field of the early 21st century. I do not expect tens of millions of deaths, but hundreds of thousands, perhaps a few million, yes. Happy days are over for America. The American Dream is over and is turning into the American Nightmare. I do not see how North-America can escape becoming one giant Yugoslavia.

    Or do you think that your “Coca-Cola, the best there is”-style “exceptionalism” refers to anything else than your exceptional naivite and stupidity?

    You are facing your downfall and ruin, gringo. Mind the step on the way out from history.

    “ghung, are you preparing for heavy rain? If I remember you are on high ground.”

    He is only on the moral high ground. Against the heavy rain approaching America there is no preparation, other than Italy, Philipines or the Canadian sticks. Apalachia won’t do.

    Now in my fourth day in Venice, three days more than planned. It is very difficult to leave this treasure, the weather is beautiful and the sea-side cafe terraces delightfull while working through my pile of history books. Among them this book:

    https://www.amazon.de/Amerikas-Griff-nach-Weltmacht-Roosevelt/dp/3806112657/ref=sr_1_1

    by the author Dirk Bavendamm, who had a journalist career, writing for the left-liberal die Zeit. Here an interview with him about his book “America’s grab for world hegemony”:

    https://youtu.be/NWpG4BpJw8M

    The big picture he presents is not very different from the one I already had and have been pushing here. What is interesting is that a “respectable mainstream author” begins to say these kind of things. Peter Hitchins is breaking with the idea of the good war between good and evil as well. Hitchins won’t mention the (((main actors))), Bavendamm does, but very low key, too low key. Not that he has much choice, if he goes too far he would be villified even more than he already has.

    In 600 pages Bavendamm meticulously shows how America, step for step was systematically setting up Europe for war. America had the economic might to replace the British as the new #1 and knew that it could achieve its globalist aims by sicking the British and the Germans against each other.

    Chamberlain’s only motivation was to protect the British empire.

    Hitler’s only motivation was to get his German territories back, stolen after WW1.

    America wanted the world, until 2016. Some in the US still want the world and are busy sitting out DJT.

    Thank God, it is going to fail.

    WW2 was entirely the work of the US. They wanted the war, because they knew they could (and would) arrive at planetary pole position.

    WW3, if it happens, after Trump, will again be the work of the US in a desperate attempt to ram Russia and China into its NWO in the last minute.

    Too late. The Gods no longer love America.

    Hate to brake it to Siss but, multicult maybe inevitable for the US l, but not for Japan, Korea, China, Russia… aaaand Europe!

    https://euobserver.com/justice/141731

    Eurasians can do what they prefer to do, namely sip wine and nibble cheese, while watching the US crashing into third world status, because in the US there are simply too many spineless virtue signalers without any ethnic selfrespect like Siss. Shouting your lungs out with hurling racism and nazi epithets at opponents comes with a stiff price, namely the future of the name caller.
