Shocked That Obama Rejected Keystone XL Pipeline?

 

We're about as shocked as Claude Rains was in discovering gambling at Rick's cafe.

We’re about as shocked at Obama’s anti-energy decision as Claude Rains was in feigning surprise that Rick’s cafe in “Casablanca” permitted gambling on the premises. Remember the scene: Captain Renault exclaims “I’m shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!” – and then collects his winnings from gambling.

The rejection of jobs and an energy source from an ally was expected from a president who is determined to shut down all sources of energy in North America.

After all, he has to cater to his radical environmentalist base. He needs their support for the upcoming presidential election. He would prefer that America remain dependent on Islamic oil or oil from southern hemisphere dictators.

The American Petroleum Institute (API) President Jack Gerard reacted to his decision:

Well, it’s very unfortunate to the American people that this decision was made today. The president has abdicated his leadership role in trying to create jobs in this country. The president has repeatedly said he’s for job creation and today he rejected the largest shovel-ready project in the United States today. He can’t be serious about job creation if he takes the largest project that would create jobs and put it on the back burner and say, well, we’re not going to do this today. We’re very disappointed by this decision and I believe it will have political consequence.

Donald Trump was clearly disgusted by Obama’s rejection of the shovel-ready jobs project, but he pointed out that if America had a sound energy policy, we wouldn’t even need Canadian oil. We have enough of our own.

Wall Street Journal columnist James Taranto notes:

Congress’s aim was to force Obama either to approve the pipeline or take the blame for rejecting it. He has managed to do neither, and the Hill reported yesterday that Republican lawmakers, anticipating a rejection or a punt, have been exploring options to force approval of the pipeline. But such a measure would be “highly unlikely to clear the Senate.” Thus it appears the president has escaped the trap the Republicans laid for him.

The left, of course, is giddy over Obama’s clever rejection of the pipeline project. The Huffington Post gloated:

President Barack Obama’s decision Wednesday to deny a permit for the Keystone XL pipeline gave environmental advocates the rarest of sensations: the feeling of victory.

After being left dejected when the administration scrapped smog regulations, dusted off nuclear power, and allowed expanded drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, Wednesday’s Keystone decision allowed green groups to exult.

“I think this is the high water mark of the president’s relationship with the environmental community,” environmentalist Bill McKibben, a leader against the pipeline, said Wednesday evening. “The knock on the guy was that he was too conciliatory, and in this case, he stood down a bold political threat.”

Obama, in affirming his State Department’s recommendation to reject the pipeline, emphasized his decision does not preclude applications for similar projects. Cynics speculate the president will approve a minimally altered version of the pipeline after November’s election. For now, though, McKibben said environmentalists are feeling optimistic.

In short, American energy independence and job creation have, once again, been rejected by Obama in order to shore up radical environmentalist support for his upcoming election. The President of the United States consistently proves that he puts America last when it comes to energy, national security, and economic recovery. He prefers to keep his extremist tree-hugging buddies happy – regardless of the suffering he is bringing on the rest of us. We’re not surprised.

  1. SHOCKED! Barry is out to destroy America. He is a TERRORIST? Nothing more nothing less…

    AMERICAN VETERAN

  2. More proof that the Kenyan Dictator's intentions are to destroy America an then turn it into a 3rd world Socialist dictatorship. I hope the worthless scumbags that voted for this ILLEGAL ALIEN are happy now !

  3. Erik Osbun says:

    No I'm not shocked. Forrest Gump had it right: stupid is as stupid does.

  4. Of course I'm not shocked , for one thing Obamass is an idiot , for another thing the last thing he wants is a boost in the economy because he needs the collapse to initiate his progressive agenda .

    • Shocked? No. Whenever there is a choice between what would be best for America and what would benefit Obama's special interests/donors/buddies, the second option always wins. He is going for the environmentalists' votes, expect more decisions like this before November 2012.

  5. Can't America see what this Muslim NIGGER is doing to our country? Wise up, people. You are in the fight for your life and the lives of your loved ones!

    • Right On Smitty D, I agree with what you say and it is the truth.

    • It is so much easier for the lame (Obama lovers) to think that the environment is so fragile. This is why they vote for a lame ass like him. Yes, people have to wise up and use the resources here and tell the rest of the world to fend for themselves. We can live off or own resources if needed. We are the ones making all the advances in this world and we can continue. If it wasn't fore us Iran wouldn't be where it is. Bomb them! We will be better off!

  6. And We the People and the wimps we sent to Washington allow him to get away with this. It's time to put an end to this. The SOB needs to go.

  7. Stan...S.C says:

    All the Above Comments are Right ON ! All i can Add is, "Where's 'Ol Lee Harvey When We Need Him" ???

  8. concerned says:

    I am not shocked — I am outraged, How can this illegal piece of shit dictate to over 300M people that we need to rely on muslim oil? If congress, in any semblance of sustaining their oaths, doesn't throw buckwheat, moochie and the pickaninnies out of OUR white house, shame on them. I am trying to be nice and politically correct. However, these people are beginning to piss me off, BIG time.

  9. concerned says:

    Is the administrator an obot? Why am I being censored – dumbass.

  10. concerned says:

    You don't like the aspersion to buckwheat, moochie and the pickanninies? Suck it up. When they close down Disney World Main Street for this retard, we have a problem. Do you know where I can purchase a Predator drone? Holder may be able to tell you.

  11. What else did you expect? He has EPA closing business after business with on the "spot" made up rules and regulations. He defied a Judges order as to the moratorium he placed on oil drilling. He has placed business in handcuffs because of Obama Care. He has borrowed the country into a position of "going over the brink," With the claim that he has saved the country from going over . There is not one ounce of truth in him. His agenda is to fundamentally change this country. The only truth that he has told. Folks forgot to ask him what the change was going to be.. He has said that it is his aim to have the Muslim flag flying over Washington. Is he getting close?

  12. lindar-Houston says:

    NO!! …..He’s NOT stupid! He knows exactly what he’s doing….been planned for a long time….look at his ‘friends’..Resko, Jeremiah Wright, Ayers, taught Alinsky, etc. He’s taking down America: destroy economy, class warfare, racial divide, open boarders, amnesty for illegals (votes), caters to his ‘own’ muslims..DOJ corrupt. Denying KeystoneXL=obviously catering to environmentalists for votes; and we keep preaching to the ‘choir’.

    God help us.

  13. http://www.trunews.com with Rick Wiles. Jesus is our only hope.

  14. Anthony San Diego says:

    Why is everyone so surprised? He has his marching orders and he's following them.
    When it comes down to it, he'll run like a scared rabbit and hide in his hole and we're
    getting closer with each passing day.

  15. I am not shocked of anything that Obummer does. Why would anybody be shocked with anything he does. It shows that he cares nothing about the American People.

  16. Surprised?? Not at all!!! He has no intention of creating jobs, particularly at the expense of losing the environmental vote!! The more people on welfare, food stamps or other charities, the better he likes it. If most of the nation is on the public dole, which is his agenda, then he can control everything we do!! That's the crux of his marxist ideas, based on Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals", or so I have read. And losing the environmental vote?? Not even a consideration. We will NEVER see an REAL improvement in the economy (he'll pretend it's getting better for the next ten months) until he is removed from the WH and we have a true conservative House and Senate. NOV 2012!!

    • You're right lilaz. Obummer is really good at PRETENDING! It's unfortunate for him that the American People are REALLY good at spotting PRETENDERS!! Fake, lying Muslim POS!!! GOD help us!!

  17. Of course we're not shocked — at least anyone who is awake, sober, and paying attention. (I don't know what kind of glue the Obama worshipers are sniffing.) We've known from the beginning that the Marxist Muslim has set out to destroy the Republic, and so far he's been quite successful — mostly because of the glue-sniffers. He really is the transparent president to all that have been watching and listening. He is the number one domestic terrorist within our borders, the enemy of the States.

  18. I am not surprised! Obama is, and always has been Anti-American and has been trying to destroy our Economy. He has to be voted out this year and everything He has done be undone. He should be impeached nown but the Congress will not make a serious move. They are concerned with their Elitist Positions. A few have made arguments against Obama but a few does not work. I hope that we all remain strong in 2012.

  19. Obumbla speaks with a forked tongue. He says we need jobs. Here is a "shovel ready job" that would put thousands of people to work and help keep fuel prices down. I believe there is going to be big problems in the middle east and our oil prices are going to go out of sight. He kowtows to the environmenalists to get re-elected. This idiot in chief could give 2 shits about the American people. All he cares about is destroying the US and turn us into a socialistic country or worse. He thumbs his nose at our Constitution and circumvents it every chance he gets. If he gets re-elected there just may be a revolt.

  20. If most people read more and listened to the talkers out there then they would have heard about ob and ties to soros,aryes, going to school and studying Islam in Indonesia. I heard about all of this in 2008 before the election. everyone needs to make sure they pay attention, and I am not talking about cnn,msnbc, and never abc,cbs,etc. talk radio,[hannity,Levin and rush and the fox news stations. on line read- radiorodgers.com Lee Rodgers is great he was fired from KSFO radio because he would not tone down hollowing about terrorist and ob.

  21. I just wonder how much he is getting from China to do so!

  22. LukeAppling says:

    Obama and his 60's radical friends in his administration have been planning for years to destroy America economically through the ploy of global warming. It works like this: they have paid scientists declare the earth is warming and must be saved from oil usage which causes carbon deposits[after calling it global cooling in 1980]. When they have raised enough fear they begin to demand carbon taxes from rich countries like America, to pay poor countries , like Africa, as a penalty for our success they do this through taxes on everything produced which drives cost up, drives customers away and closes businesses. As the country falls into a massive recession[seem familiar] there is a call for bailout in autos,banks, finance companies [those who caused the problem] the clamor is worldwide and the United Nations will disperse the monies, since they are honorable…..It is all one huge scam! Read Chris Horner's books: "Power Grab", "Red Hot Lies" and "A Politically Incorrect Guide To Global Warming" each book details point by point the entire scam, who benefits, who is behind it[Soros, gore et al] and what to do.

    Let me tell you what the Hebrew inspired Scriptures(Zeph. 3:9, Acts 26:14, 1 Cor. 4:6) have to say about it: First, for your information, Humphrey Bogart, as his wife, both were born-rich MARXIST(ANTI-CHRIST)Manhatten brats, Humprey from a Manhatten M.D. and Lauren, from a rich Manhatten playwright. They both were quite vocal about their Marxist plans too, especially made clear during the McCarthy Hearings! Back to the ONLY Spiritually Inspired Hebrew Scriptures: America, as England are actually "Israel" by the seed of Joseph, but don't even know it because they broke the ONLY IDENTIFYING SIGN given themi.e. SABBATHS SIGN, both the 7th DAY and ANNUAL SABBATHS FEASTS! However, England having already met the promise to possess the greatest civil empire in history, there was nothing left for u.s. but to produce the ANTI-CHRIST(MARXIST) OVER U.S. of REVELATION, CHAPTER 11! No? OH! Did I also mention the "FORBIDDEN FOREIGNER" of Deuteronomy 17:15? WATCH, especially starting September 16, 2012 on the Israelite Annual Feast of Trumpets(war)! Again! Let me make it perfectly clear: WATCH for the TWO-WITNESSES to TESTIFY AGAINST U.S. for 3 1/2 years!

  24. The fools' gold president!

  25. Sick & Tired - - - says:

    WAKE UP, PEOPLE – - WE ARE SYSTEMATICALLY BEING DESTROYED BY THIS MARXIST SOB! ! !

    I AM SURPRISED THAT THE UNIONS HAVEN’T BEEN HAMMERING ON HIS HEAD. THAT IS ONE AVENUE

    YOU KNOW REGARDLESS OF POLITICAL AFFILIATION – - UNION, OR NON-UNION. WE HAVE TO REPLACE

    THIS OBOMINATION! ! ! ! ! ! !

    • Last night I heard someone comment "where are the unions?" regarding BOs Keystone decision and the jobs that would not be created. The answer: "where would the unions go? Who else would they, could they vote for but BO. They (the unions) have no choice.

  26. ConservaDave says:

    Thank you Mr.Obama for the coming $4-5 /gal. gasoline. You say you want jobs created? LIAR! You say you're "for" the middle class? LIAR! Why does the WSJ think Obama escapes blame here. Who else is to blame? Can't wait until November although this dictator-wannabe-in-the-making is probably already exploring ways to declare martial law and himself president for life. He has already usurped the authority of the judiciary by declaring that he will decide which laws are constitutional or not and which ones he will ignore or enforce. He has thumbed his arrogant nose at Congress with illegal recess appointments and ignoring the War Powers Act. He keeps on stretching his powers beyond his Constitutionally mandated responsibilities, especially by legislating through regulations. He makes decision contrary to the will of the people (Obamacare, the XL pipeline,etc.) He is a clever one ("…for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light." -Luke 16:8). The gutless Republicans are continuously out-maneuerved or they just back down. This evil anti-American man should have long ago been impeached and removed from office. In a saner time this would have happened.

  27. Where Are the Republicans?

    Today, Obama (peace be upon him) decided not to import Canadian Oil into the United States. We are not surprised. We knew he was going to do that. We saw it coming because he is exactly what he said he was, an ignorant Marxist, Communist whose singular agenda is devoted to the sole object of destroying the America of entrepreneurial capitalism that has been the beacon to oppressed peoples everywhere. The MSM Commentariat, failed to vet him, refused to vet him, indeed they supported him, this inconsequential nobody, this community organizer, this thug Chicago machine politician, this associate of terrorists, this depraved knave, to become the President of our United States or America.

    Where are our conservative Republican US Senators? Why are they not calling out for the impeachment of this impostor. The grounds for impeachment are plentiful, yet they sit silent, talking platitudes and nonsense all the while only worried about their careers. They are not there for careers, they are supposed to be there to represent us, the American taxpayers who put them there. Indeed, most even voted to establish the odious apparatus of our imprisonment and justify their votes as excuses for the need of supporting our troops, while the usurper cuts our military to the bones, runs us further into debt and emasculates our strength in the world, militarily, financially and morally.

    Where are our Conservative Republican Congressmen whose job it is to appropriate (or not) money to run the government? Why cannot our speaker of the house say “No!” and stop playing around with these dangerous people? America has now reached the mid point of its economic destruction, where spending is now in excess of income and yet, the impostor asks for more. He wants another rise in the debt ceiling. When will it end? When will the GOP leadership tell Harry Reid and Obama, no more?

    I see a revolution coming. If one starts, it should start in the Congress, right now, immediately, without further delay. Now is the time for our Republican congress to act. It is now time for congressional civil disobedience; it is time to defund and disobey. It is time to remove Obama’s (peace be upon him) legitimacy. He has squandered his moral legitimacy with his criminal association with unions, plundering the treasury, with his funding of insolvent ‘green’ industries and his ignoring the US Constitution. In a word, he has to be de-legitimized because Americans, especially those who took an obligation to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic, have no obligation at all to support a fascist dictator such as Obama (peace be upon him) has become. This includes Federal, state and local law enforcement officers, congressmen and senators as well as the military.

    But, beware. To resort to violence is to play into the usurpers hands. The action forward is for Americans to nullify, disobey and ignore illegal and unconstitutional rules. They cannot be laws if they do not meet the constitutional standards and should not therefore, be obeyed. Jury’s do not have to convict those Americans brought before them under Obama’s (peace be upon him) fascist legal system. The rule is: acquit, acquit, acquit. Prosecutors and judges would finally get the idea that they are wasting their time and money. We need to learn to say No! No funding of fascism, no obeying fascism and no to the myriad of government bureaucrats telling us how to live, where to live, what to eat, what light bulbs to use or what land to plow for our own sustenance.

    America is ripe for a revolution. But, it should be one of civil disobedience. Oh, not the “occupy Wall Street” anarchist type but a TEA Party type, one that is civil, clean, lawful, non-threatening, but totally disobedient to unconstitutional edicts from the anointed one.

    Until we know who he really is, what his hidden past reveals, his educational attainments, the legitimacy of his citizenship, not until then can Americans any longer trust in any one who says: “I’m from the government, and I want to help! Remember, Freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way.

  28. Docfreeman says:

    There are 35 seats up for re-election for Democrats and anyone who lives in these state needs to ask each candidate how they feel about the Keystone Pipeline. If they say that Obama decision was right I would campaign against them. If they say they would vote to override his decision and get the project started, then vote for them. We need the jobs, we need more oil from our allies than from our enemies, which might just pull the plug at any time and send all they have to China. Obama said flat out "NO" to another plan that would have directly created at least 20,000 truly shovel-ready jobs–and 179,000 American jobs by 2035–while bringing more than 700,000 barrels of oil to the United States each day.

  29. Docfreeman says:

    That plan was the Keystone XL pipeline.
    Had the President approved Keystone, a 1,700-mile pipeline would have been extended from Alberta, Canada, to Texas refineries — lifting up the U.S. economy with private-sector investment, putting people to work, and helping increase the supply of energy to lower prices when fuel costs are through the roof. Despite a finding by the State Department that the pipeline would pose minimal environmental risk, environmentalists were still up in arms and lobbied the President to say no to the plan.

  30. Docfreeman says:

    The environmental left's "victory" is ultimately another loss for the American people — especially the 13.1 million unemployed workers. It's a loss for small businesses, such as restaurants and hotels, in the towns along the proposed route. It's a loss for state budgets that would have seen billions in tax revenue as a result. And it's also a loss for those who are struggling with high energy costs.
    Gas prices are at a record high for January and are 28.5 cents per gallon higher than a year ago. And that's expected to go even higher–some analysts predict that the national average for a gallon of regular unleaded could hit $4 to $4.25
    per gallon by the spring.

  31. Docfreeman says:

    One might think that given the high cost of energy, the President would be seeking to increase domestic production, especially given Iran's threats to block the Strait of Hormuz, thereby cutting off a quarter of the world's energy supply. Think again. Under President Obama, oil and natural gas production on federal lands is down by more than 40 percent compared to 10 years ago, 2010 had the lowest number of leases issued for oil and gas production on federal lands since 1984, and the Administration held only one offshore lease sale in 2011.
    January 2009 a gallon of gas $1.83. Today a gallon of gas $3.44. I cannot afford Obama or the Democrats for another four years.

  32. Not stupidity , but cunning is more like it and add a huge dose of treachery to the mix. He and his cronies have already violated our Constitution in so many ways that we'll be lucky if there's a fragment of ,,,We the people left as far as our part in the running of this nation. Mob rule comes to mind,,, and I don't mean throngs of irate Americans. And as to the {peace be upon him } part? There'll be no peace a long as this Manchurian president is in office. Especially peace of mind.

Remember the scene:Captain Renault exclaims “I’m shocked,shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!” – and then collects his winnings from gambling.The rejection of jobs and an energy source from an ally was expected from a president who is determined to shut down all sources of energy in North America.After all,he has to cater to his radical environmentalist base. He needs their support for the upcoming presidential election. He would prefer that America remain dependent on Islamic oil or oil from southern hemisphere dictators.GA_googleFillSlot("EO_336x280_Inside_Post");The American Petroleum Institute (API) President Jack Gerard reacted to his decision:Well,it’s very unfortunate to the American people that this decision was made today. The president has abdicated his leadership role in trying to create jobs in this country. The president has repeatedly said he’s for job creation and today he rejected the largest shovel-ready project in the United States today. He can’t be serious about job creation if he takes the largest project that would create jobs and put it on the back burner and say,well,we’re not going to do this today. We’re very disappointed by this decision and I believe it will have political consequence.Donald Trump was clearly disgusted by Obama’s rejection of the shovel-ready jobs project,but he pointed out that if America had a sound energy policy,we wouldn’t even need Canadian oil. We have enough of our own.Wall Street Journal columnist James Taranto notes:Congress’s aim was to force Obama either to approve the pipeline or take the blame for rejecting it. He has managed to do neither,and the Hill reported yesterday that Republican lawmakers,anticipating a rejection or a punt,have been exploring options to force approval of the pipeline. But such a measure would be “highly unlikely to clear the Senate.” Thus it appears the president has escaped the trap the Republicans laid for him.The left,of course,is giddy over Obama’s clever rejection of the pipeline project.
