    *The Eagles said it best: “You can’t hide your lying eyes!” is talking all about the Trumpian Business Model. It is the old Mushroom Policy of the Past; Keep ’em in the dark and then feed ’em fertilizer!” “All Russian Steel for the pipelines?”……let’s hear it from you Pittsburgh and Ohio Steelworkers who have been out of work for 30 plus years. We fully support our Native American brothers and sisters with the Dakota and those that support their cause for “cool, clear – water” on Native lands. Keystone XL – to ship Canadian Sludge down through the heartland of our country to Galveston to Refine and send to the Far East? Time to X out Fossil fuels, if you haven’t heard, not encourage more pollution… Trumpster!

    The pattern we see of course is now becoming too transparent for words: “If he speaks….he is lying!” “If he Tweets….he is trying to change the subject!” “If his surrogates apologize because the Media and the Citizens still doesn’t do Trump speak”, well then – perhaps we a Google Translation available or maybe we just need a new President…..eh? If the Republicons continue to support this type of shadow government……perhaps in 18 months….they need to go too! The Stock Market is going up on buying Russian Steel and Oil Derivatives and Hedge Funds………but then the Trumpster is ONLY the President of the little country of the USA ….not the world…eh?

      I wonder how much of his Russian debt will be dismissed due to this big order for Russian steel? I bet they’re giving him SOME kind of a break, don’t you? Isn’t this a part of the Emoluments Clause?

    Oh color me surprised…not! It was clear from the get go that this ‘American Steel’ requirement was just political hyperbole. You can’t just make a blanket statement about making pipes here without the ability to deliver. Then again we are talking about the great communicator of todays republican party.

    What? Trump lied? The (so-called) president of the United States went back on his word?

    I’m shocked. Shocked, I tell you.

    I want to know how the Trump administration will answer landowners’ concerns regarding eminent domain claims on the sections of their property in the pipeline’s path. Does AG Sessions expect these farmers and ranchers to give it up for nothing?
    What about landowners’ liability issues? TransCanada’s original proposals required them to shoulder the entire burden for failures on their parcels. Will AG Sessions step up to negotiate a more equitable arrangement?
    Who’ll pay for damages when the inevitable failures and spills occur? Who’ll pay for crop losses? Injured or sickened livestock? The costs to clean it up?
    Finally, who is responsible for the Ogallala aquifer, y’know, the vast underground water?
    Who will monitor for contaminants? Is there a plan to contain spill damage? Or, will spill damage be allowed to migrate all the way from South Dakota to Texas? Will the newly shrunken EPA take care of it?
    How much you figure Trump made when he sold the Midwest?

      First of all, I don’t think that Sessions will do ANYTHING of any significance regarding this pipeline. And, if there’s a leak, I doubt the EPA will step in and do anything….after all, they’ve already said they will now allow corporations to spill all their pollutants into our nation’s streams and rivers….why should they be concerned about a little leak? As for how much 45 made when he sold the Midwest…..probably quite a bit! Too bad his little Rust Belt followers are going to be the ones that will suffer the most if any of these problems occur.

    I’ve profited 104000 bucks in last twelve months by working on-line from my house and I manage to do it by working in my own time f­­o­­r several hrs /daily. I used a business opportunity I came across from company that i found online and I am amazed that i was able to make so much extra income. It’s user friendly and I’m just so blessed that i found it. This is what i did… http://jump.wtf/CCcHHu1

    Isn’t it amazing that British Columbia, their province directly to the west and that has a seaport, would not allow Trans-Canada to build a pipeline across their province. I guess it is easier to sucker the US into allowing the sludge to move over our states. Incidentally all that oil sludge will be refined by foreign refineries and sold on the international market.

      That’s the biggest pile of crap EVER! This oil will go through OUR states with the possibility of leaks, just to get to OUR port and then shipped to foreign refineries rather than OUR refineries! Why was this approved in the first place? Why didn’t our illustrious minority president tell Canada to build the pipeline across their OWN country! There must be a reason why British Columbia refused to have it built across their province……

        Canada doesn’t have the Gulf of Mexico, the last stop after passing through Refinery Row, AKA: Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana.

    Another promise made and not adhered to…..how many more lies will it take before his followers realize that he conned them? I assume they’re all sitting around in their barcaloungers or in the local pub waiting for those jobs to drop out of the sky too! Good luck with that one!
