Here is an inconvenient truth for Al Gore and radical environmentalists: opposing the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) is supporting future wars for oil. If you support a peaceful world, you should support pipelines that encourage energy independence.
On January 24th, President Trump signed orders to re-initiate two pipelines in a historic move to gain energy independence for America. These historic documents will revive the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines to continue construction until completion, after being rejected by former President Obama .
The same protesters and environmental activists protesting the pipelines are also unhappy with our involvement in wars in the Middle East. They call themselves humanitarians and environmentalists. Unfortunately for these horribly misinformed protesters, their beliefs are counter-intuitive. These people need to pick a battle and stick with it.
Oil dependence on the Middle East has caused death and destruction of whole countries, including Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria. It has also taken the lives and mental fitness of many U.S. soldiers over the course of many years.
Trump: The Dakota Access Pipeline will bring energy independence
President Donald Trump not only promised the pipeline would go forward, he said his team would be renegotiating the contract so that the American economy can thrive. Jobs will be created, and in turn, will help fund important infrastructure projects. So far, he is keeping all of his campaign promises.
“The regulatory process in this country has become a tangled up mess. And very unfair to people,” Trump informed reporters in the Oval office. “We intend to fix our country, our bridges, our roadways. We can’t be in an environmental process for 15 years if a bridge is going to be falling down or if a highway is crumbling. So we’re expediting environmental reviews and approvals,” Trump stated during his signing of the historical energy independence documents.
In addition, Trump said the pipeline will not only help the American economy, it will create 28,000 jobs. The pipeline will help rebuild American infrastructure and also advance our dependence from terrorism-sponsoring nations.
According to President Trump, the United States will get 25% of the profits from the historic construction, which will lighten the burden on U.S. taxpayers.
“I want it built, but I want a piece of the profits,” Trump said May 26 before delivering an energy speech to an oil-industry audience in North Dakota. “That’s how we’re going to make our country rich again.”
Democrats throw up roadblocks
In a horribly selfish and stupid move in 2015, former President Obama shut down the building of the Keystone XL pipeline, which would have helped the American people gain energy independence. As the leader of the free world the fact we are so dependent on oil from the Middle East should be a huge deterrent for any reasonable person. However, the protests are still continuing against the Keystone XL and more recently the Dakota Access Pipeline.
“Keystone XL, which was rejected by former President Barack Obama in 2015, has been at the center of one of the largest opposition campaigns in the history of the environmental movement, with activists conducting a years-long effort to kill the project” Politico reported.
Of course the master at sleight of hand politics and rousing people using their emotional instability, Senator Bernie Sanders had to chime in to make sure he kept his base angry and uninformed. Sanders immediately tweeted from one of his 3 houses on his hypocritical political stance:
President Trump ignored the voices of millions and put the short-term profits of the fossil fuel industry ahead of the future of our planet. https://t.co/veEc0AJeeH

The communism-loving Sanders didn’t stop there. He also had this to say:
We can't afford to build new pipelines that lock us into burning more fossil fuels. I will do everything I can to stop Keystone XL and DAPL.
— Bernie Sanders (@SenSanders) January 24, 2017
On January 24th 2017, Fox News’ “Varney and Co.” broke the news of the Sanders tweet. Judge Napalitano, who was a guest on the show, ragged on Sanders, saying “Does Bernie not use oil in any product?” Stuart Varney followed up by teasing Sanders: “I’ll tell you one thing: he (Sanders) hates profit. Profit is a dirty word…” .
Trump’s executive order enrages liberals
Of course Trump signing the documents to further the pipeline enraged the ignorant democrat weasels. These people seem to act as if their filthy hands are clean and pure. One such prolific turncoat is Senator Leahy who disrespected President Trump.
Senator Leahy Had this to say on his twitter account:

A doofus political reporter for The Young Turks tweeted this, following his doofus commander in cheat, Bernie Sanders.

You would think with the many wars the liberals and progressives protested they would be happy to gain independence from our addiction to the oil in the Middle East, Alas, as they have a history of doing, they unwittingly fight against their own self interests yet again.
Not only are these pipelines misunderstood, it is a dangerous outright lie that the government is hurting or taking Native lands for granted. There is no harm to Native American grave sites, and no water is in jeopardy at the Dakota Access site.
“The greens will use any means necessary to achieve their goal of “keeping it in the ground.” Their “solidarity” with the Standing Rock Sioux is a sham pretense for their real purpose: misusing the law to advance their climate agenda.”
The facts about the Dakota Access Pipeline
The Pipeline would run parallel to another existing pipeline. That fact, of course, is one no one seems to have a problem with. Are you scratching your head as well? Durrhhh, my brain itches.
A November 2016 article by CNN reports not all (if any) of the Sioux Tribe are behind the protest of the Dakota Access Pipeline. Robert Fool Bear Jr. a member of the tribe said “more than two years ago, when members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe could have attended hearings to make their concerns known, they didn’t care. Now, suddenly, the crowds are out of control, and he fears it’s just a matter of time before someone gets seriously hurt.”
Dakota Access Services is the company behind the 3.7 billion dollar pipeline that will be transferring 470,000 barrels of oil daily from the Balkan Oil fields of North Dakota to a refining plant in Illinois. After jumping through all the legal hoops and following the proper protocols, Obama halted another necessary pipeline.
In September of 2016, the courts declared that construction could proceed. However, soon after, the Department of Justice, Department of the Army, and Department of the Interior issued a joint statement decreeing the federal government will stop the progress of any additional permitting, and reconsider its past permits of the project.
Special interests cloud the issue
I could understand and sympathize with the disdain of the people, if the story matched the facts. Hell, I would be right there with them, protecting our water and wildlife as well! Conversely, that is the Progressive/ Liberal/ “Green” way of things, selling fake stories to rile up people and getting their emotions involved, instead of being factual. This narrative just isn’t true, and moreover, is a dangerously artificial tale that has gotten people hurt during their bogus clashes with law enforcement.
When the Dakota Access Pipeline project started, many people (including the Standing Rock Sioux tribe members) were invited to the planning phases of the pipeline. They were sent many letters over a period of 2 years. They refused to work with the federal government, and decided to throw a hissy fit predicated on the dangerous lie. This lie pulled in many acid and mushroom-eating hippies from all over the world to unlawfully block the progress of the pipeline.
Here are some facts about the pipeline before the activism started, courtesy the Foundation for Economic Education.
*On September 30, 2014, for example, the Corps sent centerline files of the planned pipeline route to the Standing Rock Sioux for review. There was no response.
*On October 2, 2014, the Standing Sioux Rock backed out of the first scheduled meeting with the Corps on the project.
*The Corps rescheduled the above meeting for November 6, 2014. Again, tribe officials were a no-show.
*On December 19, 2014, the Corps again reached out to the Standing Rock Sioux to schedule a meeting. Again, there was no response.
Democrats take advantage of under-informed activists
Under the iron fist of the Democratic Party, this is a story of people being told lies and fighting for something they are terribly misinformed about.
The true argument is lost amid the horrible display of overly emotional protesters, protesting something they seemingly know nothing about. If we do not gain energy independence from the Middle East, we will continue to fight unnecessary wars in the Middle East. We will be reliant on oil from countries who harbor or fund terrorism such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Iraq and Afghanistan. Moreover, they will only have to find more expensive, less environmental friendly and more hazardous ways of transporting the Oil using Semi Trucks and trains, which are more harmful to the environment.
An article titled “Syria: Another pipeline war” written by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (an environmental opponent of the Dakota Access pipeline and son of Senator Robert Kennedy) argues that the Syrian war was an excuse to hire terrorists to do our dirty oil work. In the Ecowatch article, he details the rise of the Whabbi extremism and how we (America and its allies) were funding Islamic extremism as a front to merely have another pipeline war.
The lying Obama cabal took the lie so far, they hired Islamic extremists to overtake Syria and push their oil pipeline agendas.
“The U.S. has taken part in clandestine operations aimed at Iran and its ally Syria,” wrote Hersh. This resulted in “the bolstering of Sunni extremist groups” hostile to the United States and “sympathetic to al-Qaeda.” He noted that “the Saudi government, with Washington’s approval, would provide funds and logistical aid to weaken the government of President Bashir Assad, of Syria,” to pressure him to be “more conciliatory and open to negotiations” with Israel. One faction receiving covert U.S. “political and financial support” through the Saudis was the exiled Syrian Muslim Brotherhood.
President Bashar Assad refused to cooperate with the US and her allies during Obama’s dictatorship to allow the construction of the pipeline to pump crude oil from Qatar to the UK. So behind closed doors Obama, the terrorist sympathizer, worked with his close Muslim allies to funnel money to fund, train and equip the rise of ISIS to cripple Syria into submission.
So while Obama was crying wolf and saying how bad oil pipelines are here in the US, he was literally funding the brainwashing of millions of people in the Middle East (thanks to the CIA’s psychological Operations program) to overtake whole countries, blow themselves up and displace millions of people in the name of climate change…. Apparently.
The only reason it didn’t work was thanks to Putin and having his friend Assad’s back while they were doing what America used to do, get in everyone’s business while ignoring their own. This is likely the reason for the lying left to try and use the same type of psychological brainwashing against the American people to hate the Russians. Unfortunately for the uninformed and the weak of mind it has worked brilliantly.
Sounds a little counter practical coming from the same people who are opposing a pipeline in the U.S. doesn’t it?
To summarize, while people are screaming bloody murder, thinking they are protecting the water and the graves of people that aren’t actually there; they are selectively ignoring what their own party did and does. They hypocritically (and hopefully unknowingly) support not only Oil, but a Global Jihad over that said oil.
