Tell the U.S. State Dept: NO Keystone XL pipeline

Leave a comment


Marti —

I traveled to Billings, Montana today to stand in solidarity with landowners, Tribal Nations, and Water Protectors at a rally before the one and only public hearing being held by the U.S. State Department on the proposed Keystone XL pipeline.

Unfortunately, unlike the historic 2013 State Dept. hearing on KXL in Grand Island, Nebraska — where over 1,000 Pipeline Fighters turned out, and hundreds gave public testimony in front of their fellow neighbors and citizens for nearly 12 hours — the scene here in Montana is a sad excuse for a public hearing, where citizens must instead speak their concerns privately one-by-one into a tape recorder, or else write them out to submit on paper.

Despite this attempt to silence the voices of Pipeline Fighters with no true “public hearing,” it’s still crucial that we speak out.

The best way you can make your voice heard right now is to submit a written comment into the State Department’s new draft environmental review of the pipeline. Public comments are due by Nov. 18th.

Add your name: Submit a NoKXL comment to the U.S. State Department.

(Note: We encourage affected landowners living on the proposed KXL route to submit hand-written letters with your public comments on the pipeline directly to the State Department. Include docket number: DOS-2019-0033)

Mailing address:
Ross Alliston, Keystone XL Program Manager
Office of Environmental Quality and Transboundary Issues
U.S. Department of State
2201 C Street NW
Washington, DC 20520

I’m proud to stand alongside Water Protectors here in Montana today, and will make sure to relay all the concerns of landowners and Pipeline Fighters from back home in Nebraska when I speak directly to State Department officials at the hearing.

Make sure your voice in opposition to KXL is heard: Submit a NoKXL comment now.

Thanks for standing with us.

www_Sticker_Tk_kiss_my_assThe Senate is preparing to vote on the Keystone Pipeline.  Mary Landreiu led the Democrats as she shilled for the pipeline.  The trade off of course is, that the Democrats will ok the pipeline and  Republicans will be caving in on immigration…..which of course will supply a really cheap labor force that can be exploited.  Its a win! Win!

Oil in the Kalamazoo River on July 28, 2010, three days after an Enbridge pipeline burst, causing the worst inland oil spill in U.S. history. The spill was particularly difficult to clean up because some of the oil sank.

“Dirty Harry” Reid (D) NV, is said to be preparing to bring the Keystone Pipeline bill to the floor of the senate this coming week. No doubt the offices and votes of numerous senators are now in play as the oil money pours in. Every senator wants their piece of the big oil pie. Meanwhile, the lobbyists for the cartels are swarming the District of Criminals like a hoard of voracious ants, consuming one senate vote after another.

DIRTY HARRYIn the public sector, one side is convinced that devastating the environment, contaminating water sheds and supplies, continuous “spills”, chronically leaking pipelines, horrendous air pollution, the theft of land from the states is all just fine as long as they get cheap gas at the pump. They are equally convinced that the relentless drilling and pumping is going to make us less dependent on foreign oil. Most are totally unaware of our agreement with OPEC and fail to realize that as we pump millions of gallons of crude of various grades a day from the thousands of wells currently operating and which we have done aggressively for more than 50 years, constantly increasing the number and size of wells here in the US, we can never seem to escape the “foreign oil” specter.
