Listen, Obama probably caved into blocking the Dakota Pipeline because he heard that Trump was going to make money off of this and was for the pipeline. Mostly Democrats and Libertarians were in this fight. The oil goes to China, not the USA. It goes from Canada to the gulf states where it can be shipped to foreign countries. This pipeline will likely break and spill and cause cancer and deaths and contaminate nearby water sources.
There are different points of view even people who believe in global warming (I don’t) and people who believe in Native Indian spirituality and prophesies (I don’t). But I love people and I care about the environment and practicing sustainable agricultural and environmental practices. I care about the First Nation People and I want them to keep the land they have and let them be in control of it not the Federal government. I am for preserving people’s races and heritage and traditions. I like the differences in the people in the world. God scattered the people who were joined together as one people at the tower of Babel so they would all be different and speak different languages. We travel to see and enjoy the differences in cultures. What is going on in Europe with Islamic takeover of their lands is just horrible and these liberal lost ignorant Europeans that are welcoming them have lost their minds!
It’s not over, Trump is still coming into office soon and people and he need to know that this does not benefit American middle class and puts our health and lives in danger. They are far too close to Indian burial grounds and will affect all neighboring water source receiving towns. I voted for Trump and I want to give him the benefit of the doubt so let’s hope he get better informed and looks at the numbers to see how this affects American citizens and First Nation people, especially the Sioux Indians of that area. Pray about it and if you have anyway to make a petition or do something, please do. I will gladly help get it out in social media. Connect to me on Twitter or Reddit. Thank you for reading this. God bless you!
Standing Rock victory in North Dakota as US Army Corps of Engineers revokes pipeline permits Sunday, December 04, 2016
Just got this email:
Hello (my name),
We did it! In a wonderful testament to the power of collective action, we are thrilled to share that President Obama will instruct the Army Corps of Engineers to deny the easement required to run the Dakota Access Pipeline past Standing Rock!
More than 25,000 of you signed our petition calling on the President to take action, and it worked. Your voice, and the voices of thousands of others, helped tip the balance in favor of the Water Protectors bravely standing to block the pipeline’s passage through our fragile, sacred lands.
The importance of this victory cannot be overstated, but we still have much work to do. The pipeline construction company—Energy Transfer Partners—will fight back. We know that in their lawsuit filed last month they claimed to have all necessary permits already in hand. Now, we must keep the pressure on. This is just the beginning. Let us prepare for the fight ahead.
Please click here to send an email to President Obama thanking him for his action and urging him to stay strong in the face of opposition to his decision.
From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for standing with the people of Standing Rock. Even as we celebrate and share the glow of a major victory, let us remain prayerful for the future and stay vigilant in our defense of Native sovereignty, of Mother Earth, and of all her people.
Pilamaya! Thank you!
