Carney: Keystone Pipeline Would 'Sacrifice American Sovereignty'
breitbart.com/biggovernment ^ | 4/23/12 | Whitney Pitcher

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, Carney’s 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.

Buying oil from Canada endangers our sovereignty. Buying it from OPEC is good for our sovereignty.

See?

Imagine all those Albertan illegals squeezing into a pipeline to get across that American border for better jobs.

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...

He'll find out it's sponsored by American whiskey, chewing tobacco and beer.

Bud and Miller sponsors stuff in an area with cheap Molson and Labatts? (Not to mention the Fosters, Harp, Guinness etc. that is all brewed in Canada these days.)

Why do RAT presidents always pick such a-hole press secretaries?

Birds of a feather, and all that.

Don’t they ever realize that such condescending know-it-all leftist wiseass behavior pisses off every American who isn’t 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.

Well, I respectfully disagree and also somewhat agree in return. There's no question that Obama is the figurehead for a subversive cabal intent upon turning the U.S. into a Marxist state. His "handlers" range from Soros and his network to the former Acorn, unions, and a huge range of left-wing groups. He was carefully groomed for this job and is an accomplished liar and snake-oil salesman. Read "Radical-in-Chief" by Stanley Kurtz to learn how this deception on American voters was pulled off.

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....

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.

As if these clowns gave one whit about American sovereignty

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.

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?

I cannot believe how incredibly stupid that is. I mean Dehydrated stupid. Dehydrated-rock-hard stupid. Stupid, so stupid it goes way beyond the stupid we know into a whole different dimension of stupid. It is trans-stupid stupid. Meta-stupid. Stupid collapsed on itself so far that even the neutrons have collapsed. Stupid gotten so dense that no intellect can escape. Singularity stupid. Blazing hot mid-day sun on Mercury stupid. He emits more stupid in one second than our entire galaxy emits in a year. Quasar stupid. Nothing in our universe can really be this stupid. Perhaps this is some primordial fragment from the original big bang of stupid. Some pure essence of a stupid so uncontaminated by anything else as to be beyond the laws of physics that we know.

The northern portion has not been established because the State Department is requiring a completely new review process for the proposed new route.

Canada is and will always be our closest ally. They are practically our 51 state.

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.

So we can’t let a energy carrying pipeline cross our Northern border with a staunch ally but it’s OK for marauding hordes of drug traffickers to cross our southern border?

Tells you where THEIR allegiances lie.

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.
