Buffett Profits from Keystone Pipeline Shut-Out

When oil platforms were turned out of the Gulf of Mexico, the Obama Administration was quick to seek favor with the country of Brazil ($5bil of favor) to import crude oil to the United States.  Of course that didn’t happen, because the Brazilian’s took our $5bil and then contracted with the Chinese to refine their crude oil.

Now that the Obama Administration has sided with the EPA and asked to leave the Keystone pipeline decision for after the 2012 elections, it has been ascertained that one person is positioned to potentially profit from this decision.  Warren Buffett.  Buffett’s empire has been buying into “railroads” and if the Canadian’s don’t get too peeved off at the US for shutting down the pipeline, they could likely sign-on with Buffett’s railroad to transport their oil for refining in the US or Mexico.  It would be a much more expensive venture for the Canadian’s, than a pipeline (over the long term) would be, but it is do-able. Or, the Canadian’s could choose to build a pipeline westward in Canada and export the crude oil to China.  China is knocking on Canada’s door to sign a “long term” contract with them to purchase Canadian oil for refining in China.

Only time will tell, but the big losers here are all of the jobs the creation of the Keystone pipeline would create, the immediate economic boost from energy stability for the US and the greatest benefit of all is that we retain and improve our bonds with Canada.

Time will tell and I, for one, pray that the pipeline issue continues to be made by those who understand the great benefit to the people of the United States.

Buffett would profit from Keystone cancellation

By Dave Boyer

The Washington Times

Tuesday, January 24, 2012 ~ Warren BuffettBuffett


Warren Buffett, whom President Obama likes to cite as a fair-minded billionaire while arguing for higher taxes on the wealthy, stands to benefit from the president’s decision to reject the Keystone XL oil pipeline permit.

Mr. Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. owns Burlington Northern Santa Fe LLC, which is among the railroads that would transport oil produced in western Canada if the pipeline isn’t built.

“Whatever people bring to us, we’re ready to haul,” Krista York-Wooley, a spokeswoman for Burlington Northern, a unit of Buffett’s Omaha, Neb.-based Berkshire Hathaway Inc., told Bloomberg News. If Keystone XL “doesn’t happen, we’re here to haul,” she said.

Saving the American Dream

There is an old saying that needs to be impressed upon Politicians and the American Public; “There’s no time better than the present”.  What does that mean?  That means, stop making excuses, stop procrastinating, stop telling yourself and others I’ll get it done” and get started on fixing what’s wrong, “now”!

So in honor of that statement I am asking that you spend more time working with organizations that actually do things to “fix” things now, and spend less time complaining about it all.  It’s fun to complain and I do encourage you to speak out, do not stay silent!  But, do spend more time working with and attending events with groups that actually want to “fix” things.

The Heritage Group is one of those organizations (and yes they will ask you for donations now and then…remember that nothing is free) and they are launching a new networking operation to put names and locations together, of people who want to “Save the American Dream” in America.

What Motivates Obama?

I am not a big fan of Dick Morris, but this video clip put out by Mr. Morris, is the best encapsulation of what’s happened the past three years.

What Mr. Morris says here, goes hand in glove with the conclusions of Fredrich Hayek; “Socialism will never succeed over Capitalism unless it is done on a global basis.”  Hayek’s studies also proved another dire consequence of Socialism (Marxism and Communism, not excluded) is that it “always” ends in TYRANNY!

Mr. Morris’s theory also aligns with the goals of the United Nations for Agenda 21, if you understand that Agenda 21 is merely a global effort to create a global government of choice, which is “Socialism on a global scale”.  Can any of you say, “New World Order”?

The biggest challenge we have today is, which of the other Presidential Candidates will remove the United States from the United Nations and leave Agenda 21 in ashes.  They cannot successfully implement Agenda 21 without the United States, and the U.S. Constitution is our only protection from their end game.

Please watch the video and especially if you agree that this is the explanation of what has, is and will happen to the United States economic system, please share this far and wide.

Kevin Freeman–Global Economic Warfare on GBTV

Continuing the story that no one except Mr. Freeman, through Glenn Beck’s media, GBTV is telling.  GBTV being wholly owned and operated on the currently unregulated internet allows Glenn Beck and staff to report on the news that is “rarely ever” shown on MSM or Cable news.

(If you haven’t already figured it out on your own, the monthly subscription to GBTV of  $9.95 is a bargain.  And I am not being paid to say that!)

Will the Euro-Fincial Crisis hit the U.S.? When?

Following the theme of my last post, I’ve located some video and an article to the information that Glenn Beck shared on “The Glenn Beck Show”, on GBTV, from both yesterday and today’s shows.  There is a lot to absorb here and you may need to read the articles and watch the videos more than once to take it all in.

The news doesn’t lie, but they sure don’t tell all the truth either.

YiT,  Shelly


[Editor's note: Glenn Beck had originally planned to examine these issues on his GBTV program tonight at 5pm. However, he threw his back out while on the set before going on air. Monday's show was cancelled (get more information here). Be sure to tune into GBTV later this week to see Beck discuss the topics below.]

Glenn Beck: Greece, QE3 and Italys Return to Fascism?EU leaders (left to right): British Prime Minister David Cameron, former Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and French president Nicolas Sarkozy.

“Fascism is coming” and “people are moving into insane investments.” These are two thing Glenn Beck recently said. What is he talking about? What has him convinced that fascism is on the rise and that investment trends are out of control?

For those who think these two claims might be a little “over-the-top,” please consider the following.

Despite some relatively quiet weeks, the eurozone crisis looks as if it’s about to mutate into something far more dangerous than previously anticipated.

But is it really all that bad? It would certainly seem that way.

As reported earlier on The Blaze, the financial crisis in Greece has taken on epic (and sometimes violent) proportions. Their debt levels are unsustainable; Prime Minister George Papandreou resigned after causing a stir by calling for a “bailout” referendum vote; the current Prime Minister, Lucas Papademos, is a former Senior Economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, Columbia economics professor and career banker; and let’s not forget reports of the Greeks resorting to starvation diets and/or rioting.

And now all the video which fills in the gaps and re-iterates the dangerous road that too big to fail has taken the globe.

The 2008 Financial Meltdown and Economic Warfare

Listened to Mr. Freeman’s brief expose on his research and findings for this book; “Secret Weapon” today.  The credentials and reviews of this book have peaked my interest enough to add it to my list for future reading, to add his blog “Global Economic Warfare” to my list of favorites and to shamelessly shill the book.

(I am not affiliated in anyway with Mr. Freeman, his book or have any financial connection to either.)

Who’s Really To Blame For America’s Catastrophic Financial Meltdown And Devastating National Recession?

Contrary to what the “Occupy Movement” might tell you, it’s not greedy Wall Street executives. No, as one of America’s top financial professionals reveals in this shocking new book, the real culprit is economic warfare, with our foreign enemies exploiting our lurking financial weaknesses.

In Secret Weapon, Kevin D. Freeman unveils how all the evidence – including motive, means, and opportunity – points to America’s foreign enemies as deliberately pushing our economy over the brink. In this stunning expose, Freeman reveals:

  • The evidence linking Communist China and Islamic finance to economic warfare against the United States
  • Why initial reports linked the 2008 stock market crash to economic terrorism – and why the Obama administration continues to look the other way
  • How the financial attack unfolded – and how the perpetrators tried to cover their tracks
  • Why you should expect another financial attack even more devastating than the last one – and how you can protect yourself from it.

On this MLK Holiday weekend we should ask; “Can C.L. Bryant’s view help to restore Race Relations, the Constitution and Prosperity in America?”

C.L. Bryant has collaborated with Matte Kibbe of “FreedomWorks.org” to make the documentary movie; “Runaway Slave”.

As a former NAACP leader, C.L. Bryant chronicles the American Black’s voyage from the black underground perspective of the Civil War through the 1960’s (pre JFK) as a voting block for the Republican Party, and the gains to their economic and social progress in America.  Sans the Dr. Martin Luther King era and John F Kennedy’s presidency, when former President Lyndon Johnson made social welfare a household word, the “black vote” has gone 95% to the Democrat Party.  According to the findings of Dr. Bryant, the economic and social advances in the black community have been in decline due to their blind allegiance to a Party that has indoctrinated generations of black families to worship the benevolence of government welfare.  A government that socially manipulates (dictates) behavior to keep the gravy train of welfare dollars coming to them, with acceptable behavior and the votes to perpetuate this system.

Since this weekend is in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, I believe Dr. Bryant’s video here and a link to the trailer of his video; “Runaway Slave”, is the time to remind us all that the way it is now, is not as it has always been.

Let Congress Know How “You” Want to be Represented

Speaker Boehner is asking to hear from you on the Keystone Pipeline proposal.

The Keystone Pipeline endeavor has been in the works for three years, has passed approval of the EPA,is solely funded by private capital, but is being prevented from passage by the Obama Administration’s failure to act on it.  The Obama Administration has the opportunity to give a “thumbs up” yes, or a “thumbs down” no.  The fact is that Obama wants this to be a plus for his 2012 campaign by appearing to be against the project now, but soon after his election he is expected to approve the project to reward the labor vote.

The United States needs reliable energy sources now, reliable jobs now, without being a puppet to the politicians and their elections.

Let Congress, Senate and the Obama Administration know how you feel.  Is a Social Security temporary tax reduction of $40.00 per week (which further risks that Social Security will become insolvent, sooner) a positive thing for government to be concerned with?  Or, should our elected representatives get out of the way of a private venture that will bring energy, jobs and much needed tax revenue to states and federal coffers?

VIDEO: If You Were President – And Could Help Create Thousands of Jobs – What Would You Do?

Posted by Bryant Avondoglio, Don Seymour, and Michael Ricci on January 12, 2012

What would you do if you were president and, with one decision, could help create at least 20,000 jobs in the United States?

That’s the question posed by a new video released 21 days after President Obama signed legislation giving him until February 21st to decide on the popular Keystone XL pipeline extension.

Democrats Against UN A21 for Sustainable Development

Quick update:  Found this on a fraternal site and felt that it needed to be added to this post.  It clearly shows “why” Canada has had the foresight to remove their Country from the lunacy of A21:

Rosa Koire, like Tom DeWeese, is a golden voice speaking out for us all to wake-up.  Wake-up? Wake-up from what?  From the warm and fuzzy tales of a world made-up of gumballs and fairytales, a world of social justice where everyone has a chicken in the pot, a bed to lie in and the birds and bees have a seat at the table with you.  Except when you do wake-up you realize that the only birds and bees you get to see are in zoos, your pot of chicken is from a can of mostly sodium flavored water, and the gumballs are actually the myriad of lights from the hi-rises and mass transit beneath the view from your balcony, if you’re lucky enough to have a balcony.

Learn why people from all over the world are waking-up to the goals of the United Nations Agenda 21 for Sustainable Development.  Canada has woken up and they have left the table of the Kyoto protocols for UN A21 for Sustainable Development.  Will America wake-up?  She will if we all work together and stop the insanity.

Have you wondered where these terms 'sustainability' and 'smart growth' and 'high density urban mixed use development' came from?  Doesn't it seem like about 10 years ago you'd never heard of them and now everything seems to include these concepts?  Is that just a coincidence?  That every town and county and state and nation in the world would be changing their land use/planning codes and government policies to align themselves with...what?
First, before I get going, I want to say that yes, I know it's a small world and it takes a village and we're all one planet etc.  I also know that we have a democracy and that as cumbersome as that can be sometimes (Donald Rumsfeld said that the Chinese have it easy; they don't have to ask their people if they agree.  And Bush Junior said that it would be great to have a dictator as long as he was the dictator), we have a three branch government and the Bill of Rights, Constitution, and self-determination.  This is one of the reasons why people want to come to the US, right?  We don't have Tiananmen Square here, generally speaking (yes, I remember Kent State--not the same, and yes, an outrage.) So I'm not against making certain issues a priority, such as mindful energy use, alternative energy sponsorship, recycling/reuse, and sensitivity to all living creatures.

Happy New Years! May 2012 bring You health & happiness

Eagles with FlagAs I ring in the new year, my resolution is to ask more questions and demand more answers from life and the leaders who affect my life.  2011 has come to a close with so many unanswered questions and begins 2012 with much uncertainty, in the world of economics, for my Country.  So it is time to ask tough questions in the run-up to the 2012 elections.

When the economy is run with a sure hand, using sound economic principles, it empowers me, the consumer, to plan and invest with confidence.  When the economy is run by the seat of someone’s pants, using unproven economic strategy in the “hopes” of spawning economic growth; it is my responsibility to myself, to pull back my savings into a safe harbor until the storm of uncertainty has subsided.

To start the New Year off right, I plan to ask those seeking to be leaders many questions and I trust you will too.  The start of my questioning begins with these recent events:

· When Netflix proposed an increase to the “monthly fee” for their DVD/Instant Viewing online movie services (a purely voluntary choice of service); John Q public went ballistic and the MSM reported it. Within 30 days Netflix removed the increase in fees, broke-up the service and now delivers a much less desirable service to their customers. The intent of the fee increase was to deliver a fresher line of movie products to their customers, an improvement in services for a minimal increase in fee’s when compared to the costs incurred through Direct TV, Xfinity, and other major cable TV services.

· Bank of America announced their intention to charge a “fee” for the usage (purely voluntary to choose Bank of America as your bank) of their ATM’s or debit cards; John Q public went ballistic and the MSM reported it.  Fee was cancelled within 2 weeks.

· Verizon announced their intention to charge a “fee” for paying your bill online or by your phone app (purely voluntary to choose Verizon as your cell phone provider); John Q public went ballistic and the MSM reported it.  Fee was cancelled within 48 hrs.

· Where is John Q’s outrage at “ALL” of the thousands of fee’s being added daily by local/state/federal governments by monopolies that John Q public cannot avoid????

· Isn’t this a valid question to ask Political Leaders, John Q public and the MSM?
