Despite the vast majority of Americans approval of the Keystone XL Pipeline project, Obama says that he is going to put the construction on hold “indefinitely” along with the many American jobs that it will provide.
Americans know that the Keystone Pipeline project will provide tens of thousands of good jobs, a measure of energy security and the means to start rebuilding America’s shattered economy.
However, Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) are holding this project up -- for five years and counting -- because they would rather serve the Muslim billionaires in Saudi Arabia than stand up for the American citizenry.
Even Democrat Senators from oil-producing states know that Obama is on the losing side of this issue. Eight Democrats have signed on as co-sponsors to S. 582, "A Bill to Approve the Keystone XL Pipeline."
This pipeline, if it is ever fully built, will transport oil from northern Canada all the way down to the Gulf of Mexico in Texas. It would allow access to oil in many additional states throughout the American heartland.
The Keystone XL Pipeline would reduce energy prices for most Americans because oil would no longer have to be transported by truck, train or tanker ship to get to American refineries.
Saudi Arabia is violently opposed to this pipeline.
Obama has been stalling Keystone for the benefit of the dictatorial Wahabi leaders of that country forever living in darkness, keeping flowing the billions in American dollars out of American pockets into those of the dictators of the desert.
Obama promised on the campaign trail in 2008 that he would block or reject the Keystone XL Pipeline for as long as possible.
Delaying the Keystone Pipeline may also politically driven because of the millions of dollars spent by environmentalists opposing it.
These environmentalists are major donors to the Democrat party and target politicians who support the Keystone Pipeline through television and digital ads. Obama approving the project might mean less money for the Democrats, some argue.
Think about this, though: One could buy gasoline in America for $1.89 a gallon (average price) before Obama took over the White House.
Obama has done everything he can to stop energy production and now Americans are paying twice as much or more for gas in some states as a consequence!
Conservative Christians support this pipeline project because the Bible is very clear: "I command you, saying, 'You shall open your hand wide to your brother, to your poor and your needy, in your land.'" (Deuteronomy 15:11b)
Americans are hurting and out of work, but Obama does not want to help the poor in his own land except by putting them on welfare so they become government-dependent. He would rather keep American money and jobs flowing to the bloody billionaires in Muslim countries that supply our oil.
Every permit for this pipeline project has been issued and it has passed two exhaustive environmental impact studies.
There is no legitimate reason for Obama to continue holding it up. Every day that he stalls this pipeline is another day that keeps America’s energy prices high, our money flowing to Saudi Arabia and our fellow citizens’ unemployed.
It is time to pressure the Senate to pass S. 582 and approve this pipeline.
If you want to fight back against Obama and call for the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline you can urge the Senate to pass S. 582 here. Please also share this link with everyone you know so that they can help too.
