Obama-Appointed Judge To Keystone Pipeline Developer: Donít You Dare Haul Pipe To The Work Site
Townhall ^ | 12/10/2018 | Matt Vespa

The Keystone Pipeline is once again facing legal hurdles. A federal judge in Florida told a developer working on the project that they couldn’t even ship pipe to the construction site. The judge is an Obama-appointee who recently blocked a permit for the long-awaited project in November (via The Hill):

A federal judge said the developer behind the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline can’t even haul pipe in preparation for the project.

Judge Brian Morris of the federal District Court for the District of Montana rejected TransCanada Corp.’s request Friday to complete various “preconstruction” activities in preparation for building the Canada-to-Texas pipeline, saying they could lead to the irreparable harm he is trying to prevent.

“The irreparable injury threatened by the … preconstruction activities go beyond merely the ground-disturbing injuries alleged by plaintiffs,” Morris, nominated to the bench by former President Obama, wrote in his order, saying the activities “could skew the [State] Department’s future analysis and decision-making regarding the project."

[…]

TransCanada had asked Morris to refine his ruling to allow certain activities, like hauling pipes closer to the construction areas, mowing rights-of-way and preparing worker camps.

President Trump said the construction of this pipeline, which was hamstrung by the Obama administration, would move forward under his presidency. In March of 2017, the Trump White House issued the green lightafter issuing an executive order in January of that year reversing the Obama administration’s position. The judge ruled in his decision that the Trump administration did not give an adequate reason for issuing their permit from 2017. This is just another issue, where the courts have pushed back on Trump. No doubt about a fight erupting over this—as it should; this is a trash ruling. Build that pipeline!

WTF does a FLORIDA judge have to do with a case in another Federal District?

So I guess there really are Obama judges and Trump judges.

Roberts? The guy who turned down a look at the planned parenthood case because it was too hot politically?

Roberts not politically motivated? Naaah

Hi.

Imho Paul Ryan did nothing to rein in these black robed tyrants.

The House will have a democrat speaker in January who will ignore the tyranny and promote it.

These idiots are going to get the shooting Civil War II they apparently want. And it will end badly for all, but worse for them. Fools.

energy supply is a matter of National Security/Defense, PDJT CAN issue an Exec Order that the pipeline is to be completed now.

but I bet he won’t... he’s afraid of these commie judges

I heard there might be a bug in the federal payroll software that may cause delays in the direct deposits for some federal courts.

The executive branch would like to correct this, but they are hamstrung on so many fronts right now, it’ll be hard to predict when this gets corrected due to resource limitations.

(Just a suggestion)

The way the article reads, Florida is part of Montana.

Wish I believed there was even a chance they would lose. But when you have 100% of the media spewing your propaganda, you have a decided advantage even in a shooting war.

Just where is Traitor Roberts on controlling the Fed DISTRICT Courts, not to speak of the FISA fraudsters he is supposed to be riding herd on?

Yes. Three of them at the moment, and one on the way.

Too many of these black-robed dictators should be seized and packed into tumbrils for a trip to the scaffold.

What does a judge in FL have to do with any of this??? The closest the pipeline comes to FL is east Texsas... This shouldn’t even be in his district... this venue shopping by activist in the federal courts has to end!

Thomas, please STRIKE THIS CRAP DOWN! National Injunctions are NOT the the purview of a district court!
