Trump furious, Notley silent as Obama-appointed activist judge puts brakes on Keystone XL

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

U.S. District Court Judge Brian Morris in Great Falls Montana just handed a major setback to the Canadian oil and gas industry by putting a stop to the Keystone XL pipeline.

The judge, appointed by Obama in 2013, has just sent the cross-border pipeline back for yet another environmental impact review after ruling in favour of environmental groups in their lawsuit against the pipeline.

The judge's ruling bars both Trans Canada and the United States from engaging in any furtherance of the construction or operation of Keystone and associated facilities.

The ruling caused oil patch stocks to tumble here in Canada.

President Donald Trump is outraged. According to Reuters, Trump told Whitehouse reporters:

“It was a political decision made by a judge. I think it’s a disgrace.”

Environmental NGOs are celebrating the decision.

“The Trump administration tried to force this dirty pipeline project on the American people, but they can’t ignore the threats it would pose to our clean water, our climate, and our communities,” said the Sierra Club, one of the environmental groups involved in the Montana lawsuit.

In 2010, as an MLA, Notley was the keynote speaker at an event co-organized by the Sierra Club and Greenpeace to protest oil sands development.

Rachel Notley has never denounced the Sierra Club or their lawfare tactics to block Alberta jobs and has allied herself with the Democrat Party enemies of the Canadian economy.

We see more passion against activist courts blocking Canadian pipelines and killing Canadian jobs from the American president, than we have ever seen from Trudeau and Notley.

What did the (DEA, FTA) of the day when prohibition was repealed? Let’s all go down to Fred’s bar and have that drink, why?, cause it’s all good again. The women were wrong.

Isn’t it stupid & dumb that amongst those on the Left who are against pipelines, some of them are probably living paycheque to paycheque, yet they continue to believe & endorse the exaggerated comments of the climate preachers & allow themselves to be brainwashed into more poverty. If you were in that position, wouldn’t you stop & start asking questions instead of just following like sheep? Trump said they would go to the Supreme Court, so perhaps there is still hope. As for Notley, I heard a Calgarian on a late talk show say that Notley still has a chance to remain Premier, so she makes one good move (actually trying to save KM or is it just pretending) & many are willing to forget all the other crapola.

Ask yourself a question. Who benefits from no pipeline? Rail transportation company owners? The Arabs? Europeans with hidden agenda’s and hatred for our freedom in North America? The Chinese? As we go, so goes the world. Notley is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. As soon as she was elected, she attended COPS21 in France, the new agenda 21 conference. If you study this event, you will see their ideas are to destroy capitalism and put us in bondage. She is a liar and a fraud. She gets away with it because of the publics apathy. They are all conspiring to destroy our systems of government and way of life. They are all over high and low. You can tell who they(this judge) are by their actions. The goal is a new world order. This is no conspiracy…you are living it right now. Trudeau is part of it, he is a G. Soros lap dog. Stand or Fall. May you live in interesting times…was never a wish of good will. But here we are.

And that’s why Trump has to be re-elected two years from now… It’s the only way to counterbalance the damage Obama did in his eight years by stacking the courts with similar activist judges…

They went crazy over a few ducks (what was it, 5?) dying but for “green” windmills that kill over 50 million birds annually in North America absolutely no complaints. Not even crickets. Silence.

Governor Elect Whitmer of Michigan has promised to kill the Line 5 Straits of Mackinaw tunnel project and permanently shut down the line to protect The Great Lakes .

At this rate there will be no refining of Alberta oil anywhere in North America .

Oh look who’s back, the troll Andrew the fake PhD Stephenson. Andrew, what is it that the White House made up as it goes? Would it be a fake PhD like you made up? Be specific about two things Andrew. 1- What specifically did the White House make up? 2- Prove you have a PhD, because we all know you are a lying troll, and a poor one at that.

Once again, the White House finds out it can’t make it up as it goes.

I see a totalitarian state here. I think we passed the point of no return. Not immediately but inevitably. I’m content with the midterms except for election fraud. Poor TuckerCarlson. Poor Rachel maddow/Notley she is insane

It is not about the oil sands or oil in general. It is about whether or not a successfully democratic and independent economy can be shut down and destroyed; along with the independence the average joe/Jane derives from that economy. Alberta is simply the test case, where Enfant Trudeau and Notley front the Alberta experiment. The same experiment that destroyed the forestry industry in B/C and heavy industry in Ontario.

Alberta oil workers are in high demand south of the border. Also overseas. The big investors have left Canada taking hundreds of Billions of dollars with them. They won’t be returning anytime soon, Canada is seen as too risky to invest in.

Alberta oil workers are in high demand south of the border and overseas. Global oil production and consumption keeps rising. Sadly nothing Canada does will slow the rising trend. We are just 2% of global Co2 emissions. The fact that our Great Boreal forest absorbs 100 cars worth of Co2 per year, per hectare. It covers 270 million hectares. Or about 2.7 billion car years of Co2. There are about 1.2 billion cars on earth.

Even if Co2 was causing global warming like the utterly invalidated IPCC Models claim, Canada has zero cause to tax carbon. The world owes us. The IPCC Models have overestimated warming by a factor of two to five. Their predictions are failed yet tax greedy governments use this failed science to justify public policy and wealth redistribution.

The scientific method is clear about failed predictions.

I never heard a word about it from Trudeau either, and like you say, Trump has tried to do more for Albertans than Trudeau has.

Will Jason Kenney really be the savior of Alberta’s Oil Industry? If he is afraid of the CBC and the rest of the Leftist Media, doesn’t that mean that he may back down against the US Media? On the other hand, is there anyone better than Jason?

Would Alberta make a profit selling this Oil to the US at 20% less than the WORLD PRICE, because that’s what you would be, and are doing? As the prices change daily, lets use a simple analogy; Alberta is giving the US an American $100.00 bill, and they in return are giving Alberta $80.00 American back. NOT TOO BRIGHT on Alberta’s part.

To add insult to injury, the US REFINES the Oil and sends the finished product back to us, adding on a good profit, plus receiving all the good paying refinery jobs for their workers. NOT TOO BRIGHT on Alberta’s part.

There is only one way to win this battle (other than a pipeline to Churchill Manitoba), Kenney has to fight the Lower Mainland of BC with every weapon he has. That means cut off their FOSSIL FUEL SUPPLY even if they freeze in the dark. They have been listening to crazy Green Mayors for years telling them that they only need Solar Panels, even though there is no sun half the year.

As soon as the war with BC is won, Jason can inform the Americans that the price of their Oil just went up 20 %.

Thanks to the antics of PM Butts, his facepiece the Boy Blunder and their sidekick Nutley, Canadian oil trades at a big discount to American oil. How big you ask? Western Canadian Select trades for $17.69 a barrel while West Texas Intermediate sells for $59.87. This is killing the Canadian oil industry, destroying jobs, decimating the capital of oil and gas investors as well as drastically reducing government revenues. All this damage is due to the fact we have virtue signaling climate alarmists holding office.

The decision will be appealed, but it looks like the case will have to go through the infamous 9th Circuit Court. Hopefully the case will get to the Supreme Court for a proper hearing.

Keith asks, “Dose anybody really think that we shall be free of him at the next Election?”

nope. not me. We will have another four years of that dipshit.

Robert, I agree with you entirely, unfortunately “stupid” is taking us down with it.

Canada being forced to become dependent on Middle Eastern Oil? I wonder what Trudeau’s and Notley’s cut will be. The big question is, why are we as Canadians sitting on our fat Butts doing nothing to stop this traitor, he is obviously demented, suffering from ‘Wannabe God Syndrome’. Dose anybody really think that we shall be free of him at the next Election? …. ….

the planet runs on oil and gas. what a silly concept. the ELM-environmental lying movement says shut it all down. i will not live in a cave like you cave men. and if you freeze to death or can’t travel well who cares. sometimes stupid deserves what stupid gets.

I really get tired of the socialist activist judges and politicians who work at shutting down the oilsands claiming the oil to be dirtier that regular oil. When asked to prove that the oil is dirtier, they cannot. They are liars.

Hopefully when Jason Kenny takes office he will once again encourage investment into Alberta’s oil, gas and coal industry and reverse this destruction Notley is inflicting on Alberta.

I do wish those regular Canadians that believe all the “environmentalists” lies about the oilsands would do their research so they can discover that they are being lied to (CBC being one of the biggest liars in Canada), but I think most of those people want to be lied to so I don’t hold out much hope that they will see past the lies.

It is socially acceptablein lefty world in Canada to hate the oilsands and to hate Trump and that how the uninformed leftists like being … full of hate, uninformed, stupid as stumps, and completely okay with being that way.
