I JUST FOUND THIS ......

On August 25th, join us in Washington, D.C. as we call on Secretary Kerry to stop the Alberta Clipper and expose Enbridge’s illegal scandal.

John Kerry’s State Department worked out a backroom deal with pipeline company Enbridge that has allowed the Alberta Clipper tar sands pipeline expansion to proceed without any federal environmental review. This illegal deal zigzags the oil across the international border on a different pipeline, so the tar sands can start flowing at capacities similar to Keystone XL before anyone has ever studied the environmental and social impacts.

SHAME ON KERRY!!! Enbridge is also the company that spilled in the Kalamazoo River and also has a pipeline that I wrote about in another topic that is under the straits of Mackinac that should have been retired due to it's age (60 years old) and the condition it's in (missing clamps that hold it down, some areas have NO support) and Kerry cuts a deal with ENBRIDGE? We've got snakes in the grass everywhere!

On September 10th the Alberta Clipper case will reach federal court. It’s up to us to ensure that Secretary Kerry stands on our side, reverses Enbridge’s illegal scandal, and stops the Alberta Clipper. While we await a decision from the administration on Keystone XL, it is unacceptable for the State Department to turn a blind eye and allow tar sands expansion across the border. We call on Secretary Kerry to prioritize the voices of young people, indigenous communities, and communities most impacted across the Midwest to join us on the right side of history.

Sign up to take action with us and find out more ways to support our work.

I hope you are as mad as I am about this and if you can, join in on the action.

If you have more information about this deal he made please post it here!

Subject: I just signed this petition -- will you? Explosive emails released last week reveal that the State Department colluded in 2014 with Canadian pipeline company Enbridge to secretly approve, without environmental review or public input, an expansion of the Alberta Clipper tar sands pipeline which puts it on the scale of Keystone XL. Take action now: http://act.credoaction.com/sign/enbridge_emails?sp_ref=142267455.4.13380...

I didn't know that the permit for this pipeline was approved in 2009. Who was the secretary in 2009? Yes...you got it right.......HILLARY CLINTON.

Question: Another international issue that you signed in on last year was the Alberta Clipper, a pipeline from Alberta that brings tar sands, oil sands directly into Wisconsin to the U.S. Midwest. This is some of the dirtiest fuel in the world. And how can the U.S. be saying climate change is a priority when we're mainlining some of the dirtiest fuel that exists. (Applause.) Secretary Clinton: Well, there hasn't been a final decision made. It is -Question: Are you willing to reconsider it? Secretary Clinton: Probably not. (Laughter.) And we - but we haven't finish all of the analysis. So as I say, we've not yet signed off on it. But we are inclined to do so and we are for several reasons—going back to one of your original questions—we're either going to be dependent on dirty oil from the Gulf or dirty oil from Canada. And until we can get our act together as a country and figure out that clean, renewable energy is in both our economic interests and the interests of our planet—(applause)—I mean, I don't think it will come as a surprise to anyone how deeply disappointed the President and I are about our inability to get the kind of legislation through the Senate that the United States was seeking.That was questions to Hillary. See the article at the LINK ON THE NEXT COMMENT SINCE IT WOULDN'T WORK ON THIS COMMENT.

I guess that answers whether or not she would build Keystone XL.

HILLARY WILL BUILD THE KEYSTONE XL IF SHE BECOMES PRESIDENT (UNLESS IT IS ALREADY APPROVED) which I am sure she HOPES will happen.

Impeachment: The Difference Between Nixon & Trump

Thom plus logo There is a very simple reason why some Republicans participated in the impeachment proceedings against Richard Nixon, but none have so far broken ranks against Trump. That reason is the US Supreme Court.
