Shortened title.

Full title: Exclusive – Senior Energy Official: Local Dem-Controlled Gov’ts Block Infrastructure Projects to Resist Trump

Democratic-controlled state governments are blocking federal energy infrastructure projects supported by the Trump Administration “for the sole reason of politics,” Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Chief of Staff Anthony Pugliese told Breitbart News Sunday.

An independent agency that regulates interstate transmission of natural gas, oil, and electricity, FERC relies on cooperation with state and local governments to ensure America has a reliable electric grid.

During Trump’s presidency, though, “some parts of the country that are controlled by members of the Democratic party and others … are determined to ensure that no infrastructure goes through their state and are determined to say no just because the Trump Administration is supporting it … for the sole reason of politics,” Pugliese told Breitbart News Sunday host Amanda House.

This alone has the potential to swing the election if properly exploited.

Easy solution. These states seeking ‘sanctuary’ from president Trump’s infrastructure plans should receive no infrastructure money and their voters should be informed why.

When the Nazis landed Saboteurs on the East Coast during WWII, they were caught and Executed in Washington D.C. using the Electric Chair.

Just sayin’...

They hate this country and are willing to burn it all down no matter who suffers for it because they hate a single man.

Route it around them and keep them disconnected.

When they tire of freezing in the dark, charge them a huge latecomers fee to extend lines into their state.

We’ll see how long their ‘principles’ last with pitchforks, torches, hot tar, and feathers outside their offices.

Keep it up Dems. What are you going to campaign against? Lowest unemployment rate in decades? A strong USA? Security on our borders? Good luck.

Yep, this November, while I’m sitting
in the dark, freezing to death, with
no water or gas to cook with, no food
because the trucks can’t get to the
stores, I’m sure as hell am still going
to vote for our far superior democratic
officials. By golly, we’ll show these
deplorables something.

LOL - it may be due to Trump, but more likely it's the usual liberal NIMBY which has been around for years. They want oil and gas in New England but don't want any nasty pipelines.

And they used to burn wood in the rural areas but they are trying to ban that too.

How is this bad for Trump?

Let the blue states crumble. People will leave or vote the deep staters out?

Every poll is telling the Dems that resisting and obstructing Trump, is driving votes away from them, but their Reality Defiance Disorder is just so deep seated, they can't see it.

If they don't shift their tone, rhetoric, and direction soon, they're going to be wiped out in November. If they're wiped out in November and still don't get the message, they will likely implode upon themselves, and cease to be a national party by 2020.

Let us encourage them to double and triple down on the crazy.

I have always the LEFT doesnt care if the country is a pile of rubble as long as they are in control. This may not work out the way they want.
