President Trump Signs Executive Order Reviving Keystone Pipeline…

Earlier today President Donald Trump signed an executive action to revive the Keystone XL pipeline, signalling his inclination to approve the project.  In 2015 President Obama rejected the pipeline, which would connect the Alberta oil sands to existing pipelines in Nebraska.

“We’re going to renegotiate some of the terms, and if they’d like, we’ll see if we can get that pipeline built.  Great construction jobs.”

WASHINGTON […]  Tuesday’s actions will not force the approval of either project, and Trump said he wanted to renegotiate terms with the pipelines’ developers. Those terms may include some way for the United States government to get a financial return from Keystone, a possibility he mentioned on the campaign trail.

The new president briefly described each action before putting his pen to paper, and then held each action in front of the cameras.

“This is with regard to the construction of the Keystone pipeline, a subject that’s been in dispute, and it’s subject to a renegotiation of terms by us,” Trump said. “We are going to renegotiate some of the terms, and, if they’d like, we’ll see if we can get that pipeline built.

“A lot of jobs, 28,000 jobs. Great construction jobs,” Trump added.

Trump signed a total of five actions on Tuesday, all of which are designed to either move forward with pipeline projects or help U.S. manufacturing.

The memo on Keystone asks developer TransCanada Corp. to submit a new application to build the Canada-to-Texas pipeline across the United States border.

It then asks the State Department to review the application within 60 days, at which point Trump would consider whether to give it the final approval under existing policies.

The Dakota Access memo asks that the Army Corps of Engineers review and approve the project “in an expedited manner,” including the final easement that developer Energy Transfer Partners needs to build under Lake Oahe in North Dakota.

Besides the actions moving forward with permitting for Keystone and Dakota Access, Trump signed a memo asking the Commerce Department to lay out a plan for all pipelines in the country to use materials produced in the United States.

He also signed actions to expedite permitting for manufacturing projects and to expedite environmental reviews for infrastructure projects.  (read more)

    Is anybody else here suddenly realizing that we not only picked the winner – we actually picked THE BEST Republican candidate of them all? The one that is entirely “next level” compared to any of the career politicians?

    Trump was ahead of us on this. On ALL of this. I’m just stunned. He has every one of his promises not just in line, but IN MOTION.

      He had all of his promises mapped out in advance and he has hit the ground running. He’s moving so fast that the Swamp can never keep up with him.

        And Sundance is moving so fast, I can’t keep up with him…..especially if I try to read all the comments.

          I haven’t been able to read all of the comments on every thread for quite awhile because there are so many. Sundance, like President Trump, requires little sleep. I always read all of Sundance’s articles because I don’t want to miss out on my education. Since the election season I haven’t had much time for the Daily Thread which I always enjoy. I do manage to keep up with the Prayer Thread because it’s so important.

        I remain open-minded on abiogenesis, since we really haven’t studied enough planet geologies, and our surface world is so drastically different from the primordial innards, that I’m hesitant to commit 100% to 100% biogenesis. However, the author of that article needs to make clear they’re not implying carbon as a fission product, because they would most certainly lose credibility by that. Just a couple of links that provide background on (1) abiogenesis as a minor contender, and (2) actual chemistry that makes sense in any valid abiogenesis theory, and (3) actual fission product yields that show the carbon in abiogenesis theories needs to come from carbonates, most likely.

        Not that I don’t love petroleum, but my favorite nuclear waste (stellar, that is) continues to be Thorium. 😉 I’m somewhat tempted to believe that the delays in Rick Perry’s confirmation are so that all the money-grubbing weinies in Congress can get their azzes fully invested in thorium. Good for the greenies, good for the rhinos, and good for America as Europe continues driving off the cliff with solar, wind, and other forms of chump change power.

    So, I am just watching the second run of Chris Mathews tonight and he had an epic interview with Terry O’Sullivan. EPIC! He’s probably sorry he had this scheduled. O’Sullivan and Mark McManus relayed the meeting they had with the President during the union meeting, and they explained why some were in jeans. PRESIDENT TRUMP wanted them to bring a pipe coverer, a plumber, steam fitter, and sheet metal worker so they called them off jobs in the city to come over on their lunch hour.

    See? There was a good reason some were in jeans!
