Skip to comments.Carney: Keystone Pipeline Would 'Sacrifice American Sovereignty'
Posted on 04/23/2012 11:37:13 AM PDT by ColdOne
In a press conference on Friday, White House press secretary Jay Carney responded to the recent new Keystone pipeline bill passed by Congress earlier this week, as theWashington Examiner reports:
"It would be preemptively sacrificing American sovereignty" to approve the pipeline, White Hosue [sic] Press Secretary Jay Carney said, because a route for the northern portion of the pipeline has not been established.
"The United States Congress -- a very important body, takes American security and sovereignty very seriously, or should -- is saying that we will, in advance -- blind -- approve a proposal for a pipeline, a proposal for which does not exist," he also said.
The Keystone XL pipeline has undergone 3 years of review, but the State Department refused to grant a permit after pressure from environmentalists demanding the route through Nebraska be changed.
The bill passed through Congress earlier this week with a veto proof majority that included 69 Democrats voting for the newest measure. The latest route running through Nebraska has already been approved by the state legislature and signed by the governor in that state.
Beyond the fact that President Obama is at odds with many House members in his own party, Carneys charge is ludicrous. The northern portion has not been established because the State Department is requiring a completely new review process for the proposed new route. Additionally, aligning with an ally like Canada would not sacrifice American sovereignty as Carney claims.

you do realize that if Canada took over most of this forum would be considered ‘hate speech’. illegal in Canada to speak ill of gays, muslims, leftists or politicians from PQ.
When he said this, did he wave his hands like he was trying to do a Jedi Mind Trick?
>>I didnt realize at the time I was being trained to be a Presidential Spokesperson.<<
LOL — picked that up on second read :)
Buying oil from Canada endangers our sovereignty. Buying it from OPEC is good for our sovereignty.
I mean seriously. We have hundreds of Mexicans casually strolling across the Rio Grande.
How did the supposedly coolest and most hip President turn into some weird old fogey “uncle” who has a crazy explanation for everything?
He and his minions are just plain crazy!
...and Carney just does what he’s told...but only when they let him out of his windowless room behind the briefing room stage...he always looks nervous to me, like an abused dog...
ok so fix that part of the deal to ensure US sovereignty issues.
Obama to the russians...tell Vladimir I need more flexibility.
Obama to the Canadians....your pipeline will doom us all!
Yup. The United Soviet States of Bizarro.
First I’ve heard of this.
Birds of a feather, and all that.
Dont they ever realize that such condescending know-it-all leftist wiseass behavior pisses off every American who isnt a leftie?
If they bother to notice at all, they surely don't care. Anybody who is not a lefty is beneath their concern, except as a source of revenue. To them, we are livestock.
As for Carney, I've followed his "magical" career for years. He, too, has been carefully groomed for his current position as Obama's Goebbels, from his years at "Time" (especially in Russia) to apprenticing as Joe Biden's flack. While both he and his boss are being manipulated from behind the scenes, both are willing and knowing parts of the socialist conspiracy.
Obama administration didn’t seem to have a problem with the Chinese investing billions in Texas oilfields, not sure why they would care about a pipeline crossing into Canada....
Maybe he thinks they’d be pumping mexican’s through the pipe.
“White Hosue” press secretary”....They spelled “Hose You” incorrectly.
>> both are willing and knowing parts of the socialist conspiracy.<<
I to agree with your disagreement and agreement in your conclusion, with which I agree 100%. Even a guppy would know what is going on, even if it was too stupid to see the bigger picture.
They are dupes, but willing and participatory dupes.
And we all need to continue to pray that God watch over us and minimize the damage barry and his handlers and minions are wreaking upon our Republic.
They don't, but the Alinsky-ites are trained to co-opt conservative rhetoric and use it against them.
Remember when they took "family values" from us?
And, just last week Obama started in with the phrase "judicial activism" to bash the Supreme Court.
Now today Carney is using "American sovereignty" to achieve an anti-American goal.
Look for this tactic to go into overdrive as election season continues.
Is this ENTIRE administration on drugs?
He is the idiot, not us. I am becoming more and more convinced that, after awhile, these idiots start believing their own lies.
Is Carney insane or did he just fall down?
Maybe it has to be approved so that we can find out where it goes...sorta like ObamaCare. Where was Carney’s concern for American sovreignty then?
*thumbs up graphic* LOL!
LOL! I will give it to you still!!!!
As Mitt escorts the whole kitt and caboodle out the door on his first day in office; he may just find time to escort this feller onto a side trip: destination: ..... behind the woodshed...
How much Botox is needed per cubic centimeter to demonstrate 100% correlation to sociopathological lying?
AKA, how many people did the Iranian and Axelrod have to interview to find a better liar?
I keep praying that the Lord will let Tony Snowe walk through the Veil for just a second, and in his ghostly form STRANGLE this nubnutz and THROW him halfway across the room.
I really like that image.
The Lord helps those who help themselves.
After continuing to sacrifice American sovereignty itself, the administration takes a breather to make jokes.
Bomb Canada and just take it you asshat Carney. Whew! what a miracle worker we have in charge!
Careful! 0dumb0sh_t has already spoken for 57 states with 2 more to go! Canada doesn't count. They're too white!
Carney puts that there is no limit to stupidity. Somebody alert the Guinness Book of Records.
Call the Webster dictionary people and tell them to put Carney’s picture next to the word “stupid”.
And it is only going to get worse if Obie is reelected.
Joseph Goebbels is having a ball in Hell with this clown.
You noticed! Just like many of the other 57 states.
Jack Daniels, Coors and Skoal banners were all over the place the last time I attended the Stampede. It was a bucking good time.
Tells you where THEIR allegiances lie.
Did this blithering idiot get passed from the 3rd grade to the 4th grade ???
There are people living in squalor in remote parts of the world who are laughing at the sheer stupidity of this administration.
I thought this administration was all about bowing to multinational concerns? We don’t declare war UNLESS the UN agrees, NATO plans in Libya override the need for Congressional declaration/approval of war; global mandates on AGW, monetary policy, trade, bounty of the sea, small arms, etc. Unilateral US disarmament so we don’t ‘threaten’ the despots. Huge US subsidies for Brazilian oil (since they HATE us), huge US subsidies for Arab Spring (since they HATE us), huge bailouts for EU (since they DESPISE us). First time I’ve heard concern for US interests at all, much less sovereignty.
