Tens Of Thousands Of High-Paying Jobs Lost As Canada Pulls Plug On Keystone Pipeline

Report: Canada Pulls Plug On Keystone Pipeline; Will Send Oil To Asia – Gateway Pundit

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.

.
…………

.
The proposed project would have extended from Alberta, Canada to Illinois, transporting approximately 400,000 barrels of crude oil per day. Estimated cost is $1.7 billion.

But Obama rejected the plan in 2011 and 2014.

Democrats are beholden to the radical green movement – the poor and middle class be damned.

Now this…

Canada pulled the plug on Keystone and will send the oil to Asia.

Watts Up With That reported:

Obama’s inability to make a decision on Keystone has finally yielded a result – Canada has made the decision for him.

Breitbart reports Canada has just approved the Enbridge Northern Gateway Project – a major pipeline to ship Canadian oil to Asia.

The Canadian oil will still be burnt – in Asia, instead of America.

All the jobs and energy security which Canadian oil could have delivered to America, will instead be delivered to Asia.

Rather than purchasing crude from a friendly and allied neighbor, the United States will most likely need to continue its reliance upon hostile sources like Venezuela.

Only a Democrat could make such a dangerous and irresponsible decision for the country.

Oh no, Climate Change could kill Santa!

How pathetic and hysterical are these climate change nuts? This much!

Santa Claus and Climate Change: A Letter to My Grandkids

December 2020

Dear Grandchildren,

Once upon a time, a jolly old man named St. Nick, or Santa Claus, lived at the North Pole. Every year, at Christmas, he bundled up toys made by his magic elves and flew around the world in a sleigh pulled by flying reindeer, including his most famous one, Rudolph. Santa brought these presents to all the good little boys and girls in return for nothing more than cookies, milk, and unquestioned love. But he also kept a list of bad little boys and girls, who got a lump of coal in their stockings as a reminder to be better next year.

I’m sorry to have to tell you there will be no presents from Santa this year.

It’s not that you’ve been bad. Rather the world’s governments (sometimes run by bad boys and girls now grown up) have failed to address the long-worsening problem of climate change. Santa is the latest climate victim. As the last of the summer ice at the North Pole finally disappeared, Santa’s workshop sank to the bottom of the Arctic Ocean. When the insurance companies cancelled most flood insurance policies, and Canada claimed the North Pole, Santa lost everything and became the latest climate refugee.

Oh look, some Islamist Swine have issues with couple flying Israeli and American flags

Let me be clear, blunt, if the US or Israeli flag offends you, then YOU have  a problem, so in short FUCK YOU

DEARBORN, Mich. – Metro Detroit is known as being a big melting pot, a place where people of all cultures can live together. But one couple says they are facing ethnic intimidation all because of a flag outside their home.

The latest incident they fell victim to was paintballs splattered all over their home and cars Friday night . Now the family says they fear for their safety.

Terresa and Hussein Dakhlallah say it all started two years ago when they put an American flag and an Israeli flag up outside of their Dearborn home.

Terresa is American, but she grew up in Canada. Hussein is from Lebanon.

“They left Nazi signs in our front yard, ” said Terresa. “Two people were standing there, one with a lighter and one with a gas tank, telling us that they were going to burn our home down.”

The couple has been taunted over and over again — even on Thanksgiving as Terresa began to decorate her home for Christmas.

And late Friday night a group men in an SUV came back firing paintballs at the cars and on the side of the house.

The couple is terrified and don’t feel safe in their own home.

I cannot tell these folks what to do, but I would say that bowing to these thugs will not bring any resolution. Hopefully the police will step in and arrest those responsible, and hopefully the DA will prosecute them! Until then, I would advise the couple to arm themselves.

What? Now Pedophiles are Offended by Being Called Pedophiles?

Apparently  even morally backwards freaks are sensitive these days. I just do not get it, and neither does The Other McCain

James Kincaid is a University of Southern California professor emeritus who is the author of Child-Loving: The Erotic Child and Victorian Culture (1992) and Erotic Innocence: The Culture of Child Molesting(1998). When it was announced he would speak  in Toronto at an academic conference with the creepy title “Bodies at Play: Sexuality, Childhood and Classroom Life,” an understandable outrage erupted:

Dr. Charles McVety of the Institute for Canadian Values has written an open letter to Chris Alexander, the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration Canada, asking that Kincaid be denied entry into the country. . . .
“On behalf of the 125,000 members of the Institute for Canadian Values and Canada Family Action, we request that the Minister refuse admission of Dr. James Kincaid to Canada for a lecture on October 19th, 2013 in Toronto,” Dr. McVety wrote.
“Dr. Kincaid is a well-known advocate for pedophilia, a criminal activity in Canada,” the letter states.

Of course if Mr. Kincaid is not, in fact a defender or advocate for pedophilia, then he ought to be offended. But what IS the truth here

Is that description — “a well-known advocate for pedophilia” –  perhaps just a wee bit over-the-top? Does it fail to capture the complexity andsophistication of Kincaid’s nuanced arguments? Let’s read the publisher’s description of one of Kincaid’s books:

In Erotic Innocence James R. Kincaid explores contemporary America’s preoccupation with stories about the sexual abuse of children. Claiming that our culture has yet to come to terms with the bungled legacy of Victorian sexuality, Kincaid examines how children and images of youth are idealized, fetishized, and eroticized in everyday culture. Evoking the cyclic elements of Gothic narrative, he thoughtfully and convincingly concludes that the only way to break this cycle is to acknowledge—and confront—not only the sensuality of children but the eroticism loaded onto them.

Kincaid vehemently denies he is pro-pedophilia, and I hope that is true. I cannot label him a pedophile, that would be unfair, and I do not wish to be unfair. All I can say is that the views Kincaid holds are a bit, shall we say WEIRD, as in freakish. Children are not “erotic” they are children, and they ought to be allowed to be children before they grow up. Kincaid seems to have convinced himself that child predators are few and not all that dangerous

Professor Kincaid spoke Saturday in Toronto:

A controversial U.S. professor who writes about children and sexuality shot down his critics Saturday by declaring that he is not an advocate for pedophilia.
Dr. James Kincaid, standing with his wife, Nita, at the University of Toronto, defended himself following his keynote address about children and sexuality.
“I’ve already said I’m not in favour of pedophilia. Period. Isn’t that enough?” he firmly told Linda Beaudoin, a sexual abuse survivor and advocate for children’s rights after she challenged him following his address. . . .
Kincaid told the Star he doesn’t think it’s a matter of rounding up “a few freaks and a few pedophiles and horrible monsters who regard young people as attractive.”
He said the real problem is that in the United States there is enormous attention paid to stranger kidnappings of children that draws the focus away from a higher incidence of children who are physically or emotionally abused.
Earlier, he told his audience that Canada is more enlightened than the U.S., where the public requires a steady diet of “predator kidnappers, Internet stalkers of youth, kiddie porn rings and such fantasies to maintain national identity.”
Of Internet predators, he added, “we are given to believe that they are legion, but the hard evidence is small.”

Mr. Kincaid is blind on the facts it seems, what his motivation is is not so clear-cut. Suffice it to say, I would never trust him around a child

 

Most useless Internet Newspaper (Slate) says those death panels are not that bad at all

Via Weasel Zippers

Via Slate:

Last week Canada’s Supreme Court ruled that doctors could not unilaterally ignore a Toronto family’s decision to keep their near-dead husband and father on life support.

In the same breath, however, the court also confirmed that, under the laws of Ontario, Canada’s most populous province, a group of government-appointed adjudicators could yet overrule the family’s choice.

That tribunal, not the family or the doctors, has the ultimate power to pull the plug.
In other words: Canada has death panels.

I use that term advisedly. Former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin made it famous in the summer of 2009, when Congress was fighting over whether to pass Obamacare.

As Republicans and Democrats continue to spar over health care, we should pause to wonder why millions of Canadians have come to accept the functional equivalent of an idea that almost sank health care reform even though, in this country, it was imaginary.

What I do not understand about some Conservatives

Why do Conservatives not stand up to thugs and bullies? Of course some do, but, why do we, or too many of us allow this kind of threat?

Now, I do not know who was there, and who that prick is talking to. Likely not to any male. But, again, I do not understand someone NOT sticking their finger in this punk’s face, and telling him to go blank himself. I am not advocating violence here, I am not, but I am suggesting taking a clear stand against this type of threat. Allow me to give you a example. I was born and raised in Tampa, and in the mid 1990’s I went to some County Commission meetings to fight against a group of people trying to change the County Seal because it contained a flag they were offended by, actually, the seal contained a flag, or other form of representation of every government that ever ruled over Florida, so it was very historical.

After one such meeting, I and some folks also protesting the change were accosted, verbally, by a loud mouth looking to instigate a violent incident. An incident that his group would, of course video tape in an attempt to blacklist those opposed to the change as violent racists. He focused on an older gentleman, who was much smaller than him. He berated him with taunts, slurs, and threats until some younger, much bigger guy, namely me, stepped in front of the man he was accosting, and got in the thugs face. In softly spoken but not so polite language, I told him if he wanted a fight then throw the first punch, or shut the Hell up and go away. I was certainly not stupid, and would never throw that first punch but I made it clear that if he REALLY wanted to start a fight that I would defend myself. Oddly enough, he backed down very quickly. Perhaps this is an approach more Conservatives should take? Any thoughts?

 

 

Liberals: Imagine a world without socccer balls

On first reading, there is NO WAY this story could be real, but, considering the many stuck on stupid ideas Liberals have………………

With the growing concern over the effects of competition in youth sports programs this summer, many Canadian soccer associations eliminated the concept of keeping score. The Soccer Association of Midlake, Ontario, however, has taken this idea one step further, and have completely removed the ball from all youth soccer games and practices.

According to Association spokesperson, Helen Dabney-Coyle, “By removing the ball, it’s absolutely impossible to say ‘this team won’ and ‘this team lost’ or ‘this child is better at soccer than that child.'”

“We want our children to grow up learning that sport is not about competition, rather it’s about using your imagination. If you imagine you’re good at soccer, then, you are.”

Dave Blount adds his two cents, which is worth far more than anything a Liberal could add

At this point you could believe the story is on the level. It isn’t easy to parody liberals more effectively than they parody themselves.

People who think like this run our public schools, explaining why students have higher self-esteem than ever but can no longer read or do math. They also vote, explaining why someone with a monstrous ego but without qualifications is president of the USA.

Hey look, I am sure this is parody, but, just give the Libs time to dig a bit deeper in their Pit of Eternal Stupidity Listen to the whole thing here
