Venezuela Picking a Fight with USA while Obama Holds up Keystone XL Pipeline

Venezuela Picking a Fight with USA while Obama Holds up Keystone XL Pipeline. In a show of utter arrogance Venezuela  sticks it’s finger in President Obama’s eye.  Apparently the fraudulent election in Venezuela  feels Mr. Obama has a real weakness and he is in their pocket when it comes to crude oil.

Instead of approving the the Keystone XL Pipeline which can replace 100% of the 900,000 barrels per day of dirty, high carbon oil we import from  Venezuela  each day, the Obama administration continues to go against the vast majority of Americans who are in favor of building the Keystone XL Pipeline.

Obama seems to be practicing a hypocritical game.  Obama can not understand how Congress will not pass expanding back ground checks on all firearms sold in the USA  even though it is backed by a majority of the people. Well, here you go Mr. President, approve the Keystone XL Pipeline which is backed by the vast majority of US citizens and walk the walk.

Venezuela  stepped up attacks on the United States, threatening retaliatory measures affecting trade and energy if Washington resorts to sanctions in a row over the country’s disputed presidential election.  Vowing not to go back on the late Hugo Chavez’s revolution, President Nicolas Maduro said at a swearing-in ceremony for his new cabinet, “There will be no pact here of any kind with the bourgeoisie. Make no mistake.

He accused the United States of threatening Venezuela, and spoke with approval of the warning to Washington leveled earlier in the day by Foreign Minister Elias Jaua in Guayaquil, Ecuador. “If the United States takes recourse to economic sanctions, or sanctions of any other kind, we will take measures of a commercial, energy, economic and political order that we consider necessary,” Jaua said in a television interview.

It came after a senior State Department official was quoted as urging Venezuela to recount the votes in the April 14 election to give the public confidence in the result.  The United States has so far withheld recognition of the official election results, which gave Maduro a narrow victory over opposition candidate Henrique Capriles, setting off violent protests that left eight dead.

US Assistant Secretary of State Roberta Jacobson was reported over the weekend to have said that the election council acted too quickly in proclaiming Maduro the winner, and that half of Venezuelans do not have confidence in the result.

Asked if the United States would impose sanctions if Venezuela refused to recount the votes, Jacobson said she could not say one way or another, according to CNN en Espanol.

The United States imports some 900,000 barrels of oil a day from Venezuela, which produces between 2.3 million and three million barrels a day. Venezuela, which depends on oil sales for 90 percent of its revenues, sits atop the world’s largest proven crude oil reserves.

Please Mr. President, listen to the majority of the US people who want the Keystone XL Pipeline built. Please Mr. President, stop the importing of filthy Venezuelan oil who’s government is in disarray and a communist government who hates the USA.


Transcanada Talks About Keystone XL Pipeline with Bakken Energy Service CEO Tim Fisher

Transcanada spokes person talks about Keystone XL Pipeline with Bakken Energy Service CEO Tim Fisher Co-Host of the radio talk show Energy Matters on KFYR AM 550 in Bismarck North Dakota.

The first topic was informing the listening audience Transcanada already has a pipeline that crosses from the oil sands in Saskatchewan Canada all the way to the oil  refinery in Cushing, Oklahoma. This pipeline has been in use for many years without incident. The Keystone XL Pipeline is a new pipeline proposed to bring oil from the oil sands in Canada all the way to the Gulf of Mexico which will allow the oil sands product to replace the oil currently imported from Venezuela.


The Transcanada Keystone XL Pipeline will bring thousands of high paying jobs to the USA, replace dirty Venezuelan oil, and will keep billions of our US Dollars at home while helping our largest trading partner Canada.

Venezuela oil currently imported to the United States carry more carbon   that of the Canadian Oil Sands virtually reducing green house emissions . When Venezuelan oil in imported to the  United States it has a negative effect on North American countries as nearly 80 % off the oil revenue stays in OPEC country Venezuela and billions of United States currency is sent to a country that is no friend to the United States. Dictator Hugo Chavez has disdain for the United States whereas Canada, our largest trading partner, stands side by side with the United States.

Also Dictator Chavez has 4th stage cancer and is fighting for his life. If he passes there is a real likelihood there will be severe unrest and a potential government overthrow which may end imports to the USA all together.

If the Keystone XL pipeline is approved it will also keep millions of barrels of oil from being shipped to China, India and Pakistan. Canadian oil is a national security advantage for both the United States and Canada.

Jobs, President Obama talks about the creation of high paying jobs and the Keystone XL Pipeline will bring exactly that. A big hurdle- A draft State Department report concludes that  building the Keystone XL  pipeline would not speed up development of  Canada’s oil sands, dealing a blow  to environmentalists who claim  Keystone would worsen climate change.The report from the State Department says the Canada-to-Texas pipeline  would  have little impact on the environment.

“Approval or denial of the proposed project is unlikely to  have a  substantial impact on the rate of development in the oil sands,  or on the  amount of heavy crude oil refined in the Gulf Coast area,” the report says.
