    Another side of the Keystone Pipeline

    To: Friends & Supporters

    From: Gary L. Bauer

    San Francisco Billionaire Vs. The American Heartland

    Last week, the Obama Administration announced that it has again delayed a final decision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline. The administration seems to understand how unpopular the delay will be—it made the announcement last Friday, while most Americans were focused on Passover and Easter. It is now highly unlikely that a final decision will be made before the mid-term elections in November.

    Building the pipeline is overwhelmingly popular with the public, in part because it will create tens of thousands of jobs for Americans. But here’s the biggest outrage in the process: the power broker behind the decision is Tom Steyer, a San Francisco billionaire former hedge fund manager and radical environmentalist.

    Steyer has reportedly threatened the Obama administration with severe consequences if it dares allow the pipeline to be constructed. He says he will throw $100 million into key congressional races this fall to help the left so long as Obama doesn’t move forward on the pipeline. So, faced with the choice of creating blue-collar jobs in the heartland or following the orders of a San Francisco environmental extremist, Obama chose the billionaire.

    Steyer is an advocate for the deindustrialization of America. But even he should realize that Canada’s oil is going to be extracted from the ground regardless of how the Obama Administration rules on Keystone. The only question is whether that oil is sent to America or China.

    There’s an opportunity here for conservatives. The left is trying to turn the Koch brothers into a liability for conservatives. New York Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer has called them “un-American” and said that by Election Day he wants every voter to know who the Koch brothers (or, more accurately, a liberal caricature of the Koch brothers) are. Conservatives should be doing something similar with Steyer.

    I bet not one in a million voters knows who Steyer is. But they should. He’s bankrolling many Democrat campaigns and leftwing causes. He spent $11 million to support the election of Terry McAuliffe as governor of Virginia in 2013. He’s using his fortune to advocate for policies that will prevent the creation of thousands of jobs, while arguably doing little to nothing for the environment.

    There is a television ad just waiting to be produced about Steyer and his radical agenda. The American people deserve to know that the Obama administration’s environmental agenda is being directed by a billionaire hedge-fund manager and friend of Al Gore.

    This is a great expose of Obama cow-towing to a billionaire bully rather than doing the right thing for this country. How ironic is it that the poor people elected this joke and the rich people control him?

    The tar sand oil going to China will have the same effect on the market as it would coming to Texas, without the environmental pollution concerns. Adding this oil to the world supply will still reduce the price we pay by reducing China's demand on the current supply, and someone else can worry about the hassle of dealing with this asphalt based petroleum.
    Republican contractors will find someone else to gyp in the meantime like they always have in the past.

    Back up what facts? It is only common sense if you realize how the markets function.

    HA! It just occurred to me that you people think if we get the Keystone Pipeline and an increase of 830,000 barrels of oil per day going into Houston, that our gasoline will go down to a dollar a gallon. LOL
    It doesn't work that way. The price will be dictated by the world market's supply, availability, and seasonal demands. The extra oil from Canada flowing into Texas will never be noticeable.
    What will be noticeable is the huge mess created by the pipeline and the transients who construct it. This project is in the same category as Rick Perry's Trans Texas Drug Corridor.

    You are mad.
    What it will do is to allow us to be more independent & with more reserves than the middle East.
    Deindustrialization of America that means the end of everything we hold dear.

    So now American workers are no more than transients? I'm not talking about the illegals that the Obama administration panders to. I'm referring to the American worker who deserves an opportunity to make an honest living...something Tom Steyer and the Obama train wreck is opposed to.

    Everytime something new comes here to be built, none of the local people do any of the work. Everyone who wants to work here is working.

    Pipeline will not bring down gas prices. Prices hyave been on the rise sense Bush allowed Exxon?Moble and Connoco/Phillips to merge. We need to start enforcing the Sherman Antui trust act. Att and Direct TV merger another bad move for consumers that Obama will allow to happen.

    Allowing a foreign company to come in and exact eminent domain property theft on Texas property owners is the biggest problem I have with KXL.

    This is what he is up too.
    The Energy Prevention Agency

    For decades economists, politicians, pundits, union leaders and many workers have lamented the decline of America's manufacturing base. There is a lot that has contributed to the loss of these industries and the jobs they supported. But in recent years, there was hope of an industrial renaissance in America led by cheap energy.

    That may not be the case for much longer. The EPA is preparing to unveil new cap and trade regulations next week. The details are murky, but the Chamber of Commerce released an economic impact study today based on ideas under consideration within the Obama Administration.

    It estimates that more than one-third of coal power plants could be forced to shut down, eliminating 224,000 jobs and costing the economy $50 billion a year. The Wall Street Journal notes coal is "the cheapest and most plentiful source for power, providing 40% of the nation's electricity." But the EPA seems determined to eliminate that cheap and plentiful source of energy.

    Cap and trade is such a radical idea that it failed to pass in 2010 when Democrats had a super-majority in the Senate. Now the left is attempting to impose through regulation what it could not achieve through legislation.

    Why? Because liberals have the audacity to believe that they can control the weather and stop global warming. In reality, it is about controlling you, and it's far more likely to slam the breaks on economic growth. And you don't have to take my word for it.

    Rep. John Dingell (D-MI) once admitted that a carbon cap and trade scheme was "a great big tax." Warren Buffett has called cap and trade a "huge tax" and a "regressive tax," meaning it hurts the poor the most.

    What might such a huge and regressive tax look like? Skyrocketing utility bills. Barack Obama promised that under his cap and trade plan "electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket" and it would also "bankrupt the coal industry." Food prices could skyrocket too. And gas prices could double to $7.00 a gallon.
