Hillary Clinton fumbles simple question about Keystone XL pipeline

Rebel Staff

The US State Department approved the Keystone XL pipeline years ago -- when Hillary Clinton herself was Secretary of State.

But Obama keeps blocking it so environmentalists will donating to the Democrats.

Today Clinton was asked about Keystone XL at a town hall.

Would she approve it if elected?

Pretty simple, yet Clinton refused to give a straight answer.

Hillary fills the bill as a politician just as the joke about sleeping with an old roue for one mil points out:
“Madame, now that we both know what you are, time to negotiate the real price.”

Benefits of NO Keystone Pipeline . . .
Warren Buffetts trains are busy hauling oil from the Bachan region . . . he is making Billions . . . did I mention he luvs Oby?
Rockerfeller Foundation has funnelled 10s of millions to Canadian Radical Enviro Groups . . . . who oppose pipelines, ALL pipelines. While Exon, Chevron, Standard and others buy Canadian Oil at a Substantial Discount in the Midwest . . . as they are OUR ONLY CUSTOMERS.
Oil Sands oil running through the XL Pileline would displace Venezuela “Higher Carbon” oil . . . from the Socialist Paradise where Obama buddy Chauvez used to rule, before Cuban Healthcare killed him. In Venezuela today they line up for everything, food, gasoline and other staples. The jobs of socialism.

Problem is . . . no one, even soon to be 70 Hillary wants to disturb the “Status Quo” . . . too many Dhimmicraps are cashing in on Canada’s problem.
Did I mention because we have no access to ports for our oil the Feds lose Billions in revenue every year?

Clinton and Obama are in the cult of Alinsky and the air heads in the M.S.Media love them.

In one one of a litany of Clinton family criminal scandals, Shrillary is up on racketeering charges under R.I.C.O.!
“The case charges the Clintons schemed “to reap hundreds of millions of dollars personally and for their foundation by selling government access and influence…”
“…Defendants, in particular Hillary Clinton, destroyed emails which plaintiff had requested under the Freedom of Information Act, concerning her sale of waivers as secretary of state to do business with the Islamic Republic of Iran and her participation principally in the criminal release of classified government information involving American and Israeli cyber-warfare to destroy or severely cripple Iranian atomic centrifuges and also the release to New York Times reporter David Sanger of classified Israeli war plans to wage a preemptive air attack to eliminate Iranian nuclear facilities,” he said.”

I’d like to know how she has been able to remain free of any charges over the decades, or having anything else sticking to this slippery fish of a socialist cultural Marxist!

Funny thing: Obama says “No” to XL (while there are dozens of pipelines crossing the border now anyhow) because the oil comes from the “dirty tar sands” yet continues to promote Virginia coal sales while coal is the dirtiest form of energy there is (other than Kathleen Wynne’s f’n smile).

Peter Babich. My sympathies for your situation. Went through this several times in PET’s rule over Canada and narrowly escaped it during “Rae Days” in Ontario when I fled the province. Sincerely. “The fools living high on our taxes” quite frankly don’t care. It is just more Socialist control in the march towards THEIR desire for Communism.

The USA under the Democrats have become protectionist (when it comes to allowing more Canadian oil to flow through pipelines)! It is a “ME FIRST” mentality; a “who can wield the biggest stick” mentality that is blocking this pipeline (on both sides of the border)!

Fraser asks, “Are they afraid to answer the question YES BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT LEADERS-”


Politicians are never leaders, they are followers who when they see the crowd heading one way will jump out in front to “lead”.

Maurice said, "Before the XL pipeline can move ahead, we need the simultaneous alignment of three pro-job and pro-development leaders, those being the US President, the Canadian Prime minister and the Alberta Premier. "

Might as well ask for planetary syzygy. :)

Will never happen regardless of which Candidate replaces Oboma " the great disappointment". The Democrats will continue to block it until such time as it will benefit there rich supporters or they need the product. Follow the money.

Day by day, shovel full by shovel full, she is digging her own grave.

Hillary is aware of a ‘truth’, that all real liberals, of whatever stripe know; liberals will never get elected by revealing who they really are and what their actual agenda is. Liberals are unelectable if the people know what they really stand for.
commented 2015-07-28 22:01:24 -0400
I think the real reason Hillary doesn’t take questions is because she can’t answer any hard ones as she has screwed up any and every position ever held. The more she opens her mouth the more apparent that she is not terribly bright. It really has to be a Republican get in for the Keystone to move forward. The Liberals are every bit as deceitful and as sorry a bunch as are the Democrats, they are all cut from the same cloth. If Canada wants to avoid the disaster they are facing in the U.S. we’d better stick with Harper.

Of course she dodged – she is not sure which way the wind is blowing
commented 2015-07-28 21:12:07 -0400
she can get away with this with cityits, they just ask..what was the question?

What was once a lucrative employment in Alberta, I find myself suddenly unemployed as a pipeline welder as of Friday. I tested today for another, but it’s getting scarce even for the experienced. Not just locally, but globally. These fools living high on our taxes don’t realize their detrimental effects on families (Al Gore, Rachel Notley)

PETER i agree, i was never EVER a Trump fan, but i do like the way he talks, he is not cow towing to anyone and says it even if it offends people
Hillary, i hope she does not get elected, she never had to answer for the Bengazi screw up ,,,would not send help when it was asked for and allowed the deaths of the ambassador and others, then blames a video on the Bengazi attack.
Destroyed the e mail servers
Why is women seem to get away with these things but men are hung out to dry, same with Wynne and the computer records wiped out.
I would not trust Clinton as far as i could throw her, to coin a phrase
I heard things many years ago about the clintons i will not repeat here .
( and no its not because she is a woman i feel that way,,, in case you feminist pop up and accuse us of not liking strong women )
I have never liked her or her slick husband

Cold feet Ezra! I’m telling you just like the cold feet we all witnessed on the steps of the Alberta Legislature when both Big Oil and the Government of Alberta were about to tie the big knot – All the bride had to say was “I do!” but instead… she bolted instead!

Keystone pipeline YES / NO answer the question
abortion YES / NO answer the question
Iran deal YES / NO answer the question
immigration YES / NO answer the question
Iraq ISSIS YES / NO answer the question
Are they afraid to answer the question YES BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT LEADERS-

It may be a moot point for the time being. As long as the NDP and Rachel Notley are running the show in Alberta, they may throw up so many road blocks, that moving forward with the XL pipeline becomes virtually impossible, even with the election of a pro-pipeline President. Then there’s the terrifying prospect of MulCair forming the next Federal government in Canada, who is definitely anti-oil sands and anti-pipeline. Before the XL pipeline can move ahead, we need the simultaneous alignment of three pro-job and pro-development leaders, those being the US President, the Canadian Prime minister and the Alberta Premier. For something that should have been a no-brainer, the timing of events (elections et al) couldn’t possibly have been worse. Timing is everything.

I’m no big fan of Hillary, especially since she blamed Benghazi on a Christian who had nothing to do with that Obama betrayal of American diplomatic and military personnel, but at least she appears to favor building Keystone XL, since she isn’t actually a willful traitor like Obama. I hope a Republican candidate wins the Presidency, but if not, Hillary is probably the best Democratic candidate for Canada. Her silence on Keystone XL bodes will, as I explained in my comment below.

If the kick back from keystone is big enough, billary will ride this hog!!!

billary is a POS – her tagline is, " I have a vag, therefore I should be prez".
commented 2015-07-28 19:12:50 -0400
I’m a little surprised she got asked a question.
Not so surprised that she didn’t answer
commented 2015-07-28 19:11:54 -0400
Obama’s blocking of the construction of Keystone XL pipeline has kept America dependent on overseas oil when it could have gained a secure source of oil from Canada. You have to wonder where stupidity ends and treason begins. Now Hillary Clinton won’t say where she stands on it. She knows that taking a stand for Keystone XL will cost her Democratic votes, and she really doesn’t have anything to lose by taking a stand against it, so that would seem to indicate she favors building it.

The US needs someone like Trump in as President. He make be bombastic and blunt, but that is what the US needs right now … someone who really is not a politician.
