Rasmussen: 61% of Americans Support the XL Keystone Pipeline as Obama Panders to Enviro-Wackos and Delays Decision Until After 2014 Midterm Elections
WHO IS OUT OF TOUCH WITH AMERICA AND PANDERS TO AN EXTREMIST MINORITY FOR POLITICAL REASONS?
A recent Rasmussen poll has support for the XL Keystone Pipeline at all time highs. Sixty-one percent of Americans now support the building of the oil pipeline from Canada to Texas, while only 27% are opposed. Also, 62% of likely voters also say that the pipeline is good for the economy. However, the anti-fossil fuel Obama would rather pander to the environmental wacko minority and continues to dither and delay the decision on the construction. Just last week Barack Obama once again delayed his decision to go forward on its construction as he pushed it back until after the 2014 midterm elections putting Democrat party politics ahead of jobs for Americans. But of course we were told that Obama’s delay had nothing to do with politics from Debbie Wasserman-Schiltz. Of course not. Also reported in the poll was that 57% of voters say the pipeline is at least somewhat important to how they will vote in the next congressional election, with 23% who say it is Very Important.Democrats better be careful in 2014, there is no way that 57% are all Republicans.
I don’t care what a majority of the American people think, you are stuck with me. I do not work for you.
Support for building the Keystone XL pipeline is now at its highest level ever.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 61% of Likely U.S. Voters now at least somewhat favor building the major oil pipeline from Canada to Texas, while just 27% are opposed. This includes 37% who Strongly Favor the project and 10% who Strongly Oppose it. Thirteen percent (13%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Support for building the pipeline is up four points from 57% in January and now has edged above the previous high of 60% found in November 2011 when President Obama first delayed the project for further environmental study.
It is Democrats and the MSM that always claim that the GOP panders to the radical Tea Party, Americans just might want to take a look at who Obama is taking his orders from.
Oh by the way, this weeks jobless claims jump 24,000 this week to 329,000 as Obama refuses to approve a project that would automatically create jobs in the private sector with no tax paid for stimulus.
The number of Americans filing for new unemployment benefits jumped last week, a sign layoffs have increased since touching a seven-year low earlier this month.
Initial claims for jobless benefits, a measure of layoffs, rose by 24,000 to a seasonally adjusted 329,000 in the week ended April 19, the Labor Department said Thursday. The weekly gain was the largest since December.
Economists surveyed by The Wall Street Journal expected 315,000 new claims last week. Claims for the prior week were revised up by 1,000 to 305,000.

It’s settled science … bio-fuels made from corn worse than gas in emitting greenhouse gases …
What say you Barack Obama, Al Gore and the rest? According to a federal government paid for study, bio-fuels made from leftovers of harvested corn plants release 7% more greenhouse gases as compared to conventional, evil gasoline. Let me repeat that, this was a paid for federal government study. So not only are we creating a fuel that is more harmful, as they say, to the environment, they are taking the food source away from human and animal usage.
Biofuels made from the leftovers of harvested corn plants are worse than gasoline for global warming in the short term, a study shows, challenging the Obama administration’s conclusions that they are a much cleaner oil alternative and will help combat climate change.
A $500,000 study paid for by the federal government and released Sunday in the peer-reviewed journal Nature Climate Change concludes that biofuels made with corn residue release 7 percent more greenhouse gases in the early years compared with conventional gasoline.
While biofuels are better in the long run, the study says they won’t meet a standard set in a 2007 energy law to qualify as renewable fuel.
build subsidies it, it will fail …
Hate it when that happens, eh environmental wackos? Here comes the priceless part, the LEFT and Obama admin officials is criticizing the study as flawed. HAHAHA!!! What’s the matter, don’t like it when the results that you paid for don’t fit your liberal agenda? These are the people that demonize those that do not believe that man is responsible for global warming, oh sorry what do they call it these days, climate change.
The conclusions deal a blow to what are known as cellulosic biofuels, which have received more than a billion dollars in federal support but have struggled to meet volume targets mandated by law. About half of the initial market in cellulosics is expected to be derived from corn residue.
The biofuel industry and administration officials immediately criticized the research as flawed. They said it was too simplistic in its analysis of carbon loss from soil, which can vary over a single field, and vastly overestimated how much residue farmers actually would remove once the market gets underway.
OK, can we please stop pretending biofuel made from corn is helping the planet and the environment? With huge subsidies for ethanol in gasoline, with all States now selling gasoline having some ethanol blend, and a general misconception that these biofuels are green, corn ethanol has taken on a $30 billion/yr life of its own.
The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released two of its Working Group reports at the end of last month (WGI and WGIII), and their short discussion of biofuels has ignited a fierce debate as to whether they’re of any environmental benefit at all.
Feel Good Story of the Day … See the coward vermin turn tail and run …
Not even the police could protect the vile Westboro Baptist cult members protesting in Moore, OK, the site of a terrible tornado that killed many, including school children. The Westboro Baptist moonbats contend that God sent that tornado as retribution against Moore. UNREAL. The Westboro cult had a permit to picket for half an hour; however, outraged and sickened Moore residents put an end to that in short notice. The hideous protest lasted a mere eight minutes when several people took matters into their own hands and confronted evil with their own freedom of speech.
This is what happens when ‘We the People” stand up and take back their country. America, learn from it!
Hundreds of Moore residents lined Broadway across from Central Junior High Sunday afternoon.
They were ready and waiting for members of the notorious Westboro Baptist Church.
Members of that church have long contended that God hates homosexuality and America’s tolerance of homosexuality.
They also claim that he sends disasters as punishment.
Church members had a permit to picket in front of the school, which has been housing Plaza Towers Elementary students since last year’s deadly tornado.
According to the Westboro website, they contend that God sent that tornado as retribution against Moore.
Amanda Eccles said, “It’s just sickening. You know, it’s just innocent kids that lost lives and it’s sickening for them to even think that way.”
KOCO: Counter protesters push Westboro Baptist Church members out of Moore.
I BET DEMOCRATS AND THOSE WHO CAUCUS WITH THEM BET THEIR BOTTOM DOLLAR THERE WAS NO SUCH THING AS OBAMACARE …
Democrats and Indy liberals can’t run away from Obama’s signature piece of legislation fast enough. Now those who brought you Obamacare want to tell you there is no such thing as Obamacare. Nothing can be trusted what comes out of their mouths.
This morning on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, Independent Senator Angus King from Maine, who caucuses with Democrats, stated that there was no such thing as Obamacare.This clown is actually trying to make it appear that it is the private insurance companies that are to blame and use their name. Trust me from personal first hand experience, HHS is dictating to all carriers every aspect of how these plans look, walk and talk.
Oh, only if that were true and we could dare to dream. However, sadly there is Obamacare and as we are reminded by Democrats, it is the law of the land. Make no mistake about it Sen. King, the Democrats that you align yourself with are solely responsible for this disastrous healthcare train wreck as it was rammed down the throats of all Americans by a strictly Democrat partisan vote in the Senate (60-40) and in the House. Not one Republican in either chamber voted for Obamacare. Democrats own it and Democrats will choke on it!
“Two points if I may, sir,” says Fox host Chris Wallace. “One, then why is Harry Reid saying he’s not going to allow a vote on the fixes? And, two, speak directly and briefly, because we’re about to run out of time, to Senator Barrasso’s comment that a lot of doctors, a lot of hospitals are being excluded by what Obamacare is offering.”
“Now, now that’s a big — There is no such thing as Obamacare. You can’t sign up for Obamacare. You sign up for an Anthem policy or an Aetna policy or a WellPoint policy. It’s private insurance,” said King.
Sen. John Barrasso (WY-R), also appearing on FNS, stated regarding the so-called 6 million sign-ups for Obamacare, that the “White House was cooking the books”. and claiming that the signup numbers are far different than the enrollment numbers versus those that have actually paid their first premium.
“I don’t think [six million] means anything, Chris,” he began. “I think they’re cooking the books on this. People want to know the answers to that. They also want to know, when this is all said and done, what kind of insurance will those actually have?”
“Will they be able to keep the doctor that they want?” he continued. “How much more is it going to cost them? And we know that the best cancer hospitals in the country want very little to do with people that actually buy this insurance on the Obamacare exchanges.
Hey Angus, don’t tell Barack Obama there is no such thing as Obamacare. Because that would mean he has done zero as president and remember, Barack does not mind calling it Obamacare because He cares.
Democrat ‘Unhinged’ Insanity … Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid Blames Republicans For Russia Annexing Crimea
More proof Democrats are in serious trouble for the midterm 2014 elections … Senate Majority Leader Reid says Republicans are to blame for Russia’s take-over of Crimea.
Some people have no shame, add Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to that list. Sen. Harry Reid (NV-D) said Monday that Republicans helped Russia annex Ukraine’s Crimea. Hmm, where is the outrage from the MSM over such a slanderous accusation? What kind of an irresponsible foll must one be to make such a comment. However, Reid has been making such outrageous comments like these for years and been getting a free pass. A spokesman for Republican House Speaker John Boehner called Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid “unhinged”. That’s an understatement.
This is what passes as leadership in the US Senate? It is hard to believe this man gets reelected, let alone is the Senate Majority Leader. That needs to change in 2014, Wake up America!
We need to play the blame game to distract from Obamacare and our parties failed president …
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Monday that Republicans may have helped Russia annex Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula in a surprisingly sharp attack ahead of a test vote on a bill authorizing more U.S. sanctions on Russia and $1 billion in loan guarantees to Ukraine.
Outlining the Senate’s agenda after a one-week recess, the Nevada Democrat said the first item would be the Ukraine bill that Republicans blocked just before lawmakers went on break. He urged Republicans to consider “how their obstruction affects United States’ national security as well as the people of Ukraine” and said their delay of any congressional action “sent a dangerous message to Russian leaders.”
“Since a few Republicans blocked these important sanctions last work period, Russian lawmakers voted to annex Crimea and Russian forces have taken over Ukrainian military bases,” Reid said. “It’s impossible to know whether events would have unfolded differently if the United States had responded to Russian aggression with a strong, unified voice.”
As the Lonely Conservative aptly points out, Dingy Harry failed to mention that the bill the GOP blocked would have given Russia more control over the International Monetary Fund.
In other news, Harry Reid blamed Republicans for the mudslides in Washington state, the disappearance of the Malaysia airline in the Indian ocean and the kidnapping of the Lindbergh’s baby.
This Video Speaks Volumes of the Members who Follow the Westboro Baptist Church … Hate Does Not Know How to React to Kindness
Battling hate with kindness …
How does one battle and confuse those that are so filled with hate, why with kindness of course. As Members of the Westboro Baptist Church were protesting with their anti-gay, anti-solider signs, outside the Midland Theater in Kansas City, MO of the pop singer Lorde’s concert, an interesting things happened … the counter protest was with kindness, not more hate. Earlier this week, pastor and founder of the WBC Fred Phelps died from natural causes.
“We realized that it wasn’t so much about antagonizing them,” she said, “but sending out the countered safe that we are here for people who need that message and need that positivity.”

However, the message of kindness was lost on some of the clueless members of the WBC. Steve Drain, a long time Westboro Baptists Church member said in response to the sign, “I don’t even know what they mean by what they are saying.” Really? I guess when one is so consumed with ignorant hate, one has no place for compassion. Doesn’t this speak volumes of the evil message that these people have been brainwashed with.
Nancy Pelosi Thinks Obamacare is a Winner … San Fran Nan Chides Journalist for using the Term “Obamacare” … It’s the Affordable Care Act, People!!!
Nancy Pelosi (CA-D) was asked by the media whether Obamacare was a winner or loser for a politician in a swing district. Her response was not only ridiculous spin, what followed was just down right embarrassing. Responding to reporter’s question, Pelosi said the unpopular law is a political winner for Democrats and then chided the journalist for using the term “Obamacare.” By the way nancy, I hate to burst your bubble, but it is not affordable.
In response to one reporter’s question, Pelosi said the unpopular law is a political winner for Democrats, chiding the journalist for using the term “Obamacare” in the first place:
It’s the Affordable Care Act, people. Even though it…isn’t affordable for millions upon millions of people, including most of the previously-uninsured population. Also, it’s a real headache to keep up with the lexicon rules. For awhile, “Obamacare” was a vicious Republican slur. Then it was totally fine to use because Team Obama embraced it. Now that the administration has backed away from the term (hilarious context here), Pelosi is back to being a stickler for formality.
As the four-year anniversary of the Affordable Care Act approaches, the law remains unpopular with the public. Currently, 53% disapprove of the 2010 health care law while 41% approve of the law. Opinion of the measure is virtually unchanged since last September.
Hmm, I thought Barack Obama did not mind when people call it Obamacare?
Founder of Westboro Baptist Church Rev. Fred Phelps Sr. is Dead at 84 … Oh the Irony, No Funeral for Fred Phelps
Good riddance to bad rubbish … Hell has a new occupant.
Westboro Baptist Church founder Rev. Fred Phelps Sr. has died at age 84. The founder of the controversial church died of natural causes at 11:15 p.m. Wednesday, according to
church spokesman Steve Drain Satan. Phelps and his misguided flock are known for their protesting of military funerals, preaching their “God Hates …” message. Sorry, but you do not have to be a member or even a supporter of the LGBT community to be against Phelps and the WBC. One only needs to have a clue and a sense of compassion. Never has a group of individuals been so misguided, under the guise of religion. Well, except Muslim jihadist extremists.
Fred Phelps — the founding pastor of a Kansas church known for its virulently anti-gay protests at public events, including military funerals — has died, the church said Thursday.
The 84-year-old died of natural causes at 11:15 p.m. Wednesday, according to church spokesman Steve Drain.
Phelps founded Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas, in 1955 and molded it in his fire-and-brimstone image. Many members of the small congregation are related to Phelps through blood or marriage.
According to Westboro, the church has picketed more than 53,000 events, ranging from Lady Gaga concerts to funerals for slain U.S. soldiers. Typically, a dozen or so church members — including small children — will brandish signs that say “God Hates Fags” and “Thank God for Dead Soldiers.”
Phelps was often called “the most hated man in America,” a label he seemed to relish.
Oh the irony of ironies … according to his daughter, Margie Phelps, there will be no funeral for Fred Phelps. HA!!! What’s the matter, is the Westboro Baptist Church and the Phelps family afraid that a record number of people will show up to picket and protect his funeral, Hmm? Are they afraid that there will be signs by protesters stating, “GOD hates Fred”. Just curious? But this is the way that hypocritical hate works. It would appear that the iront was not lost on American Power either.
Margie Phelps, Phleps daughter, told WIBW-AM that there will be no funeral for him.
Over the weekend, we learned that Phelps was reportedly “on the edge of death.”
In a statement on his Facebook page, Nathan Phelps, who has been estranged from his father for 30 years, said the senior Phelps was dying in hospice care in Topeka, Kan., and that he had been ex-communicated from his own church in August of 2013.
Kudos to Lefitists Holy Bullies and Headless Monsters … Rise above the hate.
I’m sending this message to you in hopes that you may send it on. I hope that as in other times a cooler mind may win out before others make a choice we, the LGBT community, won’t be able to take back. It has been reported today that Fred Phelps has died. It is safe to say that, given his attitude and his devotion to hate, those of us within, and around, the LGBT community will not mourn his end. He caused many families pain at a time when they were already hurting from the death of loved ones. However, this is his legacy, not ours.
As reported at Kansas First News, the founder of the hate-filled, judgmental church may be dead, but the ill-intended message continues. The WBC will continue to picket and spread their message of judgmental hate. Why would they stop, it is the only way they get attention.
Some called his family the most hated in America, and there has been reaction worldwide about the death of that founder of the Westboro Baptist Church, Fred Phelps. According to Tim Phelps, one of Fred Phelps Sr.’s sons, Phelps passed away Wednesday night.
With the news of his passing, there is a question people are asking: Will the picketing stop?
It was business as usual for the members of the Westboro Baptist Church, less than a day after their founder’s death.
“So it’s no different today?” Kansas First News asked Westboro Baptist Church members. ”No different today. Duty is the same,” answered a member who was picketing on 17th and Gage in Topeka.
Fred Phelps Sr., the founder of the radical Westboro Baptist Church is reportedly near death. Phelps is 84. This so-called Kansas church has become infamous for its protests at military funerals and anti-gay sentiments, promoting “Gad Hates Fags”. From the WAPO, members of the Westboro church frequently protest at funerals of soldiers with signs containing messages like “Thank God for dead soldiers” and “Thank God for 9/11,” claiming the deaths are God’s punishment for American immorality and tolerance of homosexuality and abortion. I guess some one forgot to tell this group that God loves, he does not hate.
According to his estranged son via Facebook, Nathan Phelps, Fred Phelps is now on the edge of death at Midland Hospice house in Topeka, Kansas.” Nathan Phelps also said, the elder Phelps was ex-communicated from his own church last year. A second son of the elder Phelps Sr., Nate Phelps, also has confirmed that his father had been voted out of church.
The Rev. Fred Phelps Sr., who founded a Kansas church that’s widely known for its protests at military funerals and anti-gay sentiments, is in a care facility.
Westboro Baptist Church spokesman Steve Drain said Sunday that Phelps is being cared for in a Shawnee County facility. Drain wouldn’t identify the facility but says Phelps is 84 and “having some health problems.”
The information is based on an email sent by the son, Nate Phelps, to a Topeka Capital-Journal reporter. Nate Phelps said his father is near death.
“(Fred) is at Midland Hospice House where, as of yesterday (Friday), he is comfortable without the respiratory difficultly that he was having the day before and is unresponsive,” Nate Phelps wrote, quoting a message sent to him.
After Fred Phelps Sr. was voted out of the church, he was moved to another house where he could be watched for fear of him hurting himself, then he “basically stopped eating and drinking,” Nate Phelps said in the email.
For many years, Fred Phelps Sr. and his wife, Margie Marie Phelps, lived in an upper floor of the church.
A Westboro Baptist Church spokesman declined to comment Sunday on whether a report that Pastor Fred Waldron Phelps Sr. has been excommunicated from the conservative church, known for its controversial anti-gay stance, that he founded in the 1950s.
Sorry, but HATE is not a religion. Isn’t this guy going to be in for a surprise when he finds the Pearly Gates locked and a sign that says, sorry, take this elevator straight to Hell.
WAPO-ABC News Poll: Keystone XL Pipeline Project Overwhelmingly Favored by Americans But Barack Obama Against Jobs
Once again Barack Obama finds himself on the wrong wide of the American people and refusing to approve a project that will create jobs for “We the People”.
According to a recent WAPO-ABC News poll, an overwhelming majority of Americans are in favor of supporting the contraction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline between Canada and the United States. 65% of Americans approve of the job creating pipeline project, while only 22% are opposed. An amazing 85% say that the Keystone XL oil pipeline project will create jobs; however, Obama continues to stonewall the project so to pander to his environmental wacko constituents. Republicans, Independents and Democrats are in favor of building the pipeline that will provide a significant economic benefit to the US, 82%, 65% and 51%, respectively. It is only moonbat, liberal Democrats that oppose the it.
Americans support the idea of constructing the Keystone XL oil pipeline between Canada and the United States by a nearly 3 to 1 margin, with 65 percent saying it should be approved and 22 percent opposed, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
The findings also show that the public thinks the massive project, which aims to ship 830,000 barrels of oil a day from Alberta and the northern Great Plains to refineries on the Gulf Coast, will produce significant economic benefits. Eighty-five percent say the pipeline would create a significant number of jobs, with 62 percent saying they “strongly” believed that to be the case.
That so many Americans back the pipeline, even with environmental risks, highlights the quandary facing President Obama and his top aides as they weigh whether to approve the proposal.
Support for Keystone is highest among Republicans, with 82 percent backing it. But majorities of independents and Democrats also want it approved, at 65 and 51 percent, respectively. Only self-identified liberal Democrats lean against, 47 percent to 36 percent.
But even though Obama continually says his primary focus to to create jobs for Americans, he does just the opposite. Obama wastes tax payers money on his failed backing of green energy policy like Solyndra, Fisker Automotive, ABC123, and Solar Trust just to mention a few. All he has to do is simply saying “yes”,instead he refuses to allow a job creating project to go forward. Obama’s war on oil is more important than jobs for the American people. Instead Obama would rather see Americans on food stamps and welfare, than working jobs for evil oil.
A recent State Department assessment said the project would create 1,950 jobs for a two-year period, after which it would generate 50 permanent jobs. But most people see it as a larger economic boon, the poll shows.
