The Keystone Pipeline project was expected to create tens of thousands of high paying jobs in the oil industry. The project itself would create 20,000 construction jobs. And the pipeline would bring oil from Canada and North Dakota to refineries in the United States.

But it was just a big pipe dream.

(Bob McCarty)

With gas prices at record levels…
Barack Obama rejected the pipeline earlier this year.

Now Canada is building pipelines to sell gas to China.
John Sexton at Breitbart.com reported:

In April, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper revealed disheartening consequences for America’s energy policy at a think-tank event in Washington. Asked about President Obama’s decision to put off a decision on the construction of the cross-border Keystone XL pipeline, Harper explained that it would permanently alter Canadian energy policy.

What it really has highlighted for Canada is that our issue when it comes to energy and energy security is not North American self-sufficiency. Our energy [issue] is the necessity of diversifying our energy export markets. We can not be, as a country, in a situation where really our one, and in many cases almost only, energy partner could say no to our energy products. We just cannot be in that kind of position.

Harper went on to say that the alternative to a pipeline south into the Gulf region of the United States was a pipeline west to reach the markets of Asia. Now fast forward a couple months, and the New York Times is reporting this:

While Joe Oliver, Canada’s minister of natural resources, said in an interview that the United States would remain Canada’s “most important customer,” billions of barrels of oil that would have been refined and used in the United States are now poised to head elsewhere. Expansion of Canada’s fast-growing oil-sands industry will be restricted by the lack of pipeline capacity before the decade’s end, he said, which “adds to the urgency of building them so that the resources will not be stranded.”

Three new pipeline network proposals — two that call for heading west and the other east — have been put forward.

In other words, Stephen Harper was not making an idle threat or a political statement. Canada is moving full speed ahead with plans to sell tar-sands oil to other consumers, particularly China.

  1. OBAMA = FAIL

  2. We can not be, as a country, in a situation where really our one, and in many cases almost only, energy partner could say no to our energy products.

    It’s too bad that the consequences of the policies belonging to the dumbass currently in the White House can’t be confined solely to the morons that voted for him…

  3. Don’t get angry. Your anger won’t undo the One’s decision which obviously is intended to cripple in yet another way the USA. The One is NOT an American.

    But do resolve to work harder to get Romney elected. Convince neighbors, friends, contribute, but do something positive.

  4. Killing the Keystone Pipeline is just another example of oBama putting his own political fortunes ahead of what’s best for the American people.
    His radical green constituency trumps actual JOB creation…Great call, Barack.

  5. What do you want him to do he is such a busy guy, I mean gosh he’s got another fundraiser at Sarah Jessica Parkers house.
    Yeah you know Sarah Jessica Parker, you know the girl from Sex in the City, I hear she had some pretty famous parents their name was Trigger & Buttercup….

  6. He just doesn’t care, never did. This chump ain’t nothin but a political animal and a money whore. He and his band of communists take the money from wherever they get it and use the media to dupe enough people to maintain power. Then fraudulent elections if it gets too close.

  7. Obama said: “We need to slow society down so that technology can catch up.”

    He told us.

    He said in no uncertain terms he would usher in the decline of western society. Who knew he’d pull Canada down with us.

    It’s interesting that his stupidity is an asset in implementing his intentionally destructive policies. It’s not like just any thug can go in somewhere and destroy everything. That takes skill.

  8. coolidgerules/#7 said–
    Then fraudulent elections if it gets too close.

    Yes..and add to that, the fact in the upcoming election– the vote counting has been outsourced to a Spanish company with close ties to Soros.
    http://www.westernjournalism.com/spanish-company-will-count-american-votes-overseas-in-november/
    This should be declared illegal.. how can it not be?

  9. oh to be a fly on the wall at the G20 next week.

  10. What angers me, besides this, is that gas prices remain high, despite oil trading lower than it has in a long time. Plus, there is a huge disparity in price. For example, St. Louis prices are significantly higher than souterhn Illinois prices, and that NEVER happens. What this tells me is that the C-stores are gouging the customers and blaming the oil companies/speculators/government.

    That being said, why the hell are our politicians not outraged and fighting for us. I’m spending an extra $200 per month on gas over just two years ago.

    My country is out of control.

  11. I think the so called working class union man is starting to get it. AFl-CIO is stopping the funding for political campaigns. I’d be willing to bet that this Keystone pipeline project would have benefitted many union pipefitters, steelworkers and laborers just to name a few.

    BTW: The ‘working class party’ held a fundraiser tonight costing only $40,000 per person. That’s as much as a working class man makes in a year.

  12. I recognize Canada’s right to do that, however I would curtail any and all business dealings with Canada. We have stuck by them when they were going through socialist periods. They should wait until we rid ourselves of these communists.

  13. The important thing is that this immense resource is not constrained.

    Sure Obama has made sure the US will not prosper from it, but at least the Chinese and the rest of the world will be able to get the oil that we are too stupid and too ideological to want.

    Elections have consequences and America elected a self-absorbed idiot in 2008.
    Who needs jobs anyway.

  14. The jackassery continues unabated…..

  15. OT

    Truth-lovers READ ALL ABOUT IT:

    This young woman, Emeli Sande, knows the truth.

    LISTEN:

    http://grooveshark.com/s/Read+All+About+It+Pt+III/4FbYHE?src=5

    This is the most relevant song to the conservative blogospheric community that I’ve ever heard. Bar none — this song is more revolutionary than anything written in the 1960s.

    If Emeli Sande (first name Adele, but she was so polite that she changed her stage name to her middle name, after the Artist Currently Known as Adele became famous) isn’t a Christian, then I’m the Queen of Slovakia.

    while we sing away the blues
    making sure that we remember yeah
    cause we all matter too
    if the truth has been forbidden
    then we’re breaking all the rules
    so come on, come on
    come on, come on,
