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!

Pres. Trump, when federal judges issue executive actions, continue to do what the plan calls for and tell the judge to file a complaint at the Supreme Court, kinda like Obama did when he said he had a pen and phone and bypassed Congress.

There are alotta peeps needing a gas-up in Fla., so I can see pipelines.

But there is likely no pass through to other States as Fla. is a PENINSULA!

Maybe Fla. is a net exporter of Crude or finished product?

The ‘net pipes say:

NO refineries in Fla.

[Given the population, y’all should build on or two.]

The three current pipelines come from LA. The next one, if some stupid judge doesn’t intercede, will come from TX (under the Gulf).

....I’ve been under these kind of orders. They are laughable. I can move pipe anywhere in the world I want to. End of story.

I wouldn’t move it on site. But, I could move it down the road a ways and call it my Interim Distribution Center or some such non sense.

Buy the lot next to the Judge’s compound.

Load it up with pipe.

Or drilling fluid tanks.

So every project has to pass 2578 Federal judges? Any one of them can squash it? America is over.

Respectfully disagree. The leftist media scum have self-identifyied themselves as targets. They will not last long if CW II happens. (Neither will I - too old and infirm to do much.)
