Why Obama Now Loves Keystone XL

Timothy Birdnow

While Barack Obama killed the Keystone XL pipeline, he has spoken warmly about TransCanada's efforts to build the stretch of said pipeline between Nebraska and Texas.

Now we know why; TransCanada is using eminent domain to force landowners to turn over the right of way.

So, Obama's veto was a win/win for his Administration; restrict oil in the U.S. to force America into "Green energy" and at the same time to promote the power of the State to steal land from private individuals. A neat trick, that.

(And for any who do not believe that, Chu on this.

Obama wins - America loses.
