Keystone: another obstacle removed.
Whoever doubted seriously that it would be?

News came out in the Friday before Super Bowl Sunday news dump.

Obama's Hillary's Nobody who will run for higher office as a Democrat again's State Dept raised few objections, well after Hillary ceased heading that dept.

So, no one should blame Hillary when if she runs for the Democratic Party's Presidential nomination. This was obviously not conveniently timed and is also obviously all John Kerry's doing. (Though, if he takes any real heat for it, Kerry will probably say otherwise.)


Citizen's in affected areas say there will be civil disobedience if Obama approves the pipeline.

BTW, unions want the pipeline to go through and, if it does, jobs will be created. And not those scummy, low-paying environment-improving government jobs like FDR created in the Conservation Commission, either. Real, private sector jobs. Because tycooons don't import Chinese people to dig in the US {anymore}. Though, there is still time for immigration reform. Not surprisingly, Republicans are willing to agree to import low wage workers, as long as they remain an underclass, with no path whaterver to voting Democratic citizenship. Best of all possible worlds for the job creators and the Republicans and Democrats in D.C. who represent them so well at the expense of all taxpayers. So, I think propects for immigration reform are looking good.

Fingers crossed!

1. P.S.
The 2012 Green Party candidates for President and Vice President got arrested shortly before the 2012 election for standing in the way of Keystone prep.

3. I think you are right on, on this.
They are paving the way for a Hillary candidacy. They are leaving no stones unturned. When they are done with Hillary's image remake we will think she was a close personal friend of Pete Seeger. Until she wins the primary election. Then she will set out to assure the corporations and their minions that she is a reliable war hawk and free market enthusiast.

4. Not Seeger. Too controversial. Blacklisted for over a decade for refusing to
rat out anyone to McCarthy. Once said he was "a communist with a small c," then didn't rail against Stalin's brutality viciously enough. Etc. Google him now and you will see the venom with which some are observing his death.

With a personal net worth (as a couple) of a few hundred million (I imagine it's grown since Hillary's 2008 disclosure), Hillary is definitely in the 1%. And there is no question she is a war hawk and a corporatist. And a liar. (Remember her claim during the primary that she was shot at in some airport overseas, but the video showed her plane being met by little children who greeted her with flowers, as she smiled at them?) Anyone who thinks otherwise is as deluded as I was in 2008.
