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.

“Piers Morgan Live” Soon to be Piers Morgan Canceled … CNN Gives Low Ratings Show the Axe … Get Ready for his Kicking & Screaming
CNN is giving ‘Piers Morgan Live’ given the boot … Piers Morgan, Not-So Live.
As reported at The Politico, CNN is canceling Piers Morgan’s low rated 9pm show. The 3 year experience to replace Larry King Live has crashed and burned badly with a prime time show that got consistently low ratings. CNN stated that the show could end as early as next month. It probably could not happen soon enough as “Piers Morgan Live” is simply unwatchable. So who will be next up for CNN to take on Megyn Kelly on Fox News and Rachel Maddow at MSNBC at 9PM? Some seem to think Bill Weir. All we know for now is that Piers Morgan is out … good riddance to bad rubbish!
The below video is exhibit 1 of the reason why Piers Morgan’s show has been canceled. Guests Dana Loesch and Scottie Hughes own Morgan in the gun debate so much so at the very end the CNN host winds up in a snit … “It makes me sick”. Actually Piers, your show made many more sick and the reason why no one watched it0 One last thing … Bu-bye!!!
CNN President Jeff Zucker has decided to bring an end to Piers Morgan’s low-rated primetime show, network sources told POLITICO on Sunday. “Piers Morgan Live” could end as early as next month, though Morgan may stay with the network in another role.
Morgan, a former British tabloid editor, replaced Larry King in the 9 p.m. hour three years ago, prior to Zucker’s tenure as president. His show earned consistently low ratings, registering as few as 50,000 viewers in the 25-to-54 year-old demographic earlier this week.
“CNN confirms that Piers Morgan Live is ending,” Allison Gollust, head of CNN communications, told POLITICO on Sunday after an earlier version of this post was published. “The date of the final program is still to be determined.”
Earlier on Sunday, Morgan told The New York Times that the show had “run its course” and that he and Zucker “have been talking for some time about different ways of using me.” Sources who spoke to POLITICO said the decision to end the show was Zucker’s.
Check out the unbelievable, consistent low ratings of Piers Morgan. It is hard to believe they stuck with him this long. The funny part is I have watched more shows of American Greed on CNBC than Piers.
As The Other McCain opines, this is the “first smart move that network has made in years.” I could not agree more. The money line comes from The Guardian that emphasize the following comments from the New York Times article that Morgan was a square peg in a round hole. Really, after all this time CNN finally figured out that a liberal Brit going against the United States Constitution and the First Amendment was a bad thing? God figure.
“It’s been a painful period and lately we have taken a bath in the ratings,” Morgan told the New York Times, which first broke news of the CNN decision on Sunday.
“Look, I am a British guy debating American cultural issues, including guns, which has been very polarizing, and there is no doubt that there are many in the audience who are tired of me banging on about it.”
LOL, remember when Piers Morgan told CBS News during his book tour that, “I will be taken out of CNN kicking and screaming. I absolutely love it. It’s a fantastic network. It’s a great news place to be.”
Three words that should never be used in the same sentences with Our Founding Fathers, that would be … Nancy, Pelosi and Obamacare!
How is this babbling, lying hack actually voted to office? It certainly says much about the district she represents. Unbelievably, she says that the Founding Fathers would support Obamacare because the virtues espoused by The Founders of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are also in Obamacare. NO THEY ARE NOT!!! Pelosi and her ilk will lie, cheat and steal to misrepresent what Obamacare is and they hope that Americans are too ignorant and apathetic to care.
America’s Founding Fathers fiercely held to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness—values which Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) claimed align seamlessly with Obamacare.
Pelosi explained why the law is “very sound policy” during a press conference Friday:
To go to back to our founders once again, they sacrificed it all for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This law, the affordable care act, is about a healthier life, the liberty to pursue your happiness. That is solid policy, and the mandate is central to that.
San Fran Nan made the same ignorant comments last July 4th …
As stated at Town Hall, Obamacare is the very type of overbearing government policy that the Founders would have fought against. Amen! A note to former Democratic Speaker Pelosi as it would appear she needs a history lesson. We fought a War of Independence to rid ourselves of an overbearing, authoritarian central government. The American people might want to remember that as well.
“It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood.” – James Madison
“They who would give up an essential liberty for temporary security, deserve neither liberty or security.” – Benjamin Franklin
“I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground that ‘all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states or to the people.’ To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specially drawn around the powers of Congress, is to take possession of a boundless field of power not longer susceptible of any definition.” – Thomas Jefferson
#You Lie … New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo Says He Was Misunderstood when He Said Conservatives “Have No Place in the State of New York”
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo should try out for the men’s US Olympic gymnastic team with the back-bending, back-flips and contortions he went through trying to spin what he originally said, in that Conservatives have no place in the state of New York.
New York Gov. Cuomo is now saying he was misunderstood. Of course you were governor, because some how you are the victim here. Now Cuomo is back-peddling off his initial comments on WCNY and trying to say, I wasn’t telling anyone to leave … “My position is the exact opposite, right? We have all sorts of opinions in this state. We have people all along the spectrum, and it’s one of the things that makes New York special.” Yeah, that’s the ticket. And if you like your health insurance and doctor, you can keep your health insurance, Period! Cuomo said specifically, that there was “no place” in New York state for “extreme” conservatives who are pro-life and support the Second Amendment.
New York and America got a peak into what Go. Andrew Cuomo truly thinks and believes when it comes to anyone who does not agree with his liberal view point and agenda. Because liberals are oh so tolerant. Just curious, where was the MSM with the reporting of this political intolerance? Imagine if a Republican had said the same?
Watch and listen to the VIDEO below of what Cuomo said and decide for yourself.
People misunderstood New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo when he said conservatives “have no place in the state of New York,” the Democratic governor explained Wednesday.
“I was not saying anyone should leave the state, right? And anyone who heard the comments knows that’s not what I was saying,” Cuomo said when asked about his comments at a press conference. “To the extent people want to have a political dialogue, that’s what it is.”
“I wasn’t saying anyone should leave the state,” Cuomo explained Wednesday. “My position is the exact opposite, right? We have all sorts of opinions in this state. We have people all along the spectrum, and it’s one of the things that makes New York special.”
Cuomo is up for reelection this year.
Why can’t politicians just admit they made a mistake instead of just further showing that they are lying sacks of bovine scatology?

With Terror Threats Ahead of Sochi Winter Olympic Games, American Athletes and Americans Urged Not to Wear Anything that ID’s them as Americans in Public
Sorry, but if this is what the Olympics has come to, then the terrorists have won …
The Olympic represent the pinnacle of National pride for the host country and for the athletes who represent their own countries competing in the games. But as reported by CBS News, Americans might be hard pressed to find the stars and stripes and team USA logos in Sochi. The Olympic committee told the US athletes not to wear anything that identifies them as American in public. Sadly, the gutless Barack Obama/John Kerry State Department agrees. So athletes and fans are not supposed to show pride and patriotism in the US, they are supposed to cower in fear. Why even go if that is the case? This speaks volumes of our current federal government an namely Barack Obama, doesn’t it!!!
It would appear that the motto of the Olympics of Citius, Altius, Fortius (faster, higher, stronger) has been changed to take part in your sport under the cloak of anonymity and hide from those who would kill you.
So let’s understand this, the US is succumbing to the threats of terrorists? Really? We are allowing terrorists to dictate what we do and how we act? What a gutless government we have. Sorry, but if the Olympic committee was really serious about any of this they would have never granted the Winter Olympic games to be held in the middle of a terrorist hot bed. How bad is it that athletes who have trained their entire lives for this one moment in time have to ask their families to stay how for safety reasons? What the hell was the IOC thinking in granting these games in the first place? Hey, I say the Summer games should be held in Egypt, Syria or Iran next. It makes about as much sense.
Has anyone ever told the IOC, Barack Obama and the State Department that you do not appease bullies, you stand up to them? Terrorists pride themselves upon fear and sadly Obama is showing that he is just that weak.
Oh the Hypocrisy … Hollywood Producer Harvey Weinstein Promises Not to Make Any More Bloody Violent Movies … Still Promising New Film With Meryl Streep that Will Make NRA Wish They Weren’t Alive
Harvey Weinstein tells CNN host Piers Morgan that he would no longer make bloody, gory, violent movies. Hey Harvey, I think the damage has been done. Weinstein has made a career and a lucrative living out of making what he claims he will no longer do. Of course it all depends on how one defines “bloody, violent” movies.
Suddenly Harvey Weinstein has had an epiphany and after making a living producing extremely and ultra-violent movies including ‘Kill Bill,’ ‘Scream,‘ ‘Scream 2,’ ‘Scream 3,’ ‘Halloween‘, ‘Halloween 2‘, ‘Halloween: Resurrection‘, ‘Pirannah 3D‘, ‘Django Unchained‘, ‘Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2′, ‘Pulp Fiction’ and maybe one of the most bloody with gratuitous violence movie ever, ‘Rambo’ in war-torn Burma. But now he is ready to turn over a new leaf and warns he will make a Meryl Streep movie that will make NRA ‘wish they weren’t alive’.
Check out the works and the hypocrisy of Harvey Weinstein
Warning: Adult language and violence – Scene from Pulp Fiction, Ezekiel 25:17
Warning: Beyond violent – Rambo 4 (probably one of the most violent, bloody scenes ever)
Warning: More gratuitous violence – Scream deaths
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo Says that Conservatives Who are Right to Life & for 1st and 2nd Amendmends ‘Have No Place in the State of New York’
More liberal tolerance … What has taken over the Democrat party … So much of a government in NY state of, by and for the people, all people.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said during a WCNY radio interview with Susan Arbetter that that if “extreme conservatives” are “right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay,” then “they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.” Seriously? Isn’t the governor of a state supposed to represent all the people? Could you imagine if a governor from a “red” state said that no one who was pro-choice, pro-gay or pro-gun control has no place in their state? The MSM would be in a complete and total uproar. Cuomo went on to say that “moderate Republicans have a place in this state” and noted that he can work with moderate Republicans, as they’ve consistently passed his agenda. So only those that agree with Cuomo have a place in New York state. UNREAL! Imagine if Chris Christie made such a comment? Once again we are witness to another double standard. Let’s hope this socialist clown never runs for president.
“Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and if they are the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”
This intolerance is coming from a state governor, this is why the framers and Founding Fathers wrote a Bill of Rights to the US Constitution to protect the people from a tyrannical government.
So let’s get this correct, an individual who expresses their First and Second Amendment rights of the US Constitution have no place in New York state? I thought it was the Democrats who claim to have a big tent and are oh so tolerant. The sad reality of Andrew Cuomo’s comments is that he is being seriously and this is what the liberal, socialists who have taken over the Democrat party believe. So for all you folks outside of New York City and who live in upstate New York, you best not be for the rights of new born babies, you best not support the right to bear Arms and you best not be for religious freedom and the right to follow your religious beliefs.
Ann Coulter Responds to MSNBC’s Ed Schultz’ Challenge that Republicans are Afraid of Him with … “Invite Me on Your Show, You Lying P*ssy”
Looks like the ball is now in Ed Schultz’s court …
Following MSNBC’s Ed Schultz’s comment from ‘The Ed Show’ where he said, “Republicans, they’re afraid of me. They don’t want to talk to me,” the never at a loss for words Ann Coulter responded via Twitter with the following … “Invite me on your show, you lying p*ssy”. Well how about them apples? So the real question is whether Schultz will put his will have the CO-JONES to actually invite Ann Coulter on his show and face the intellectual and fiery wrath of one of our favorite conservatives?
The answer is, if MSNBC actually wants some ratings they would do it in a heart beat. However, if they want Ed to be reduced to a puddle of goo, they might think otherwise. However, I would not hold your breathe on this one to happen.
These MSNBC hosts like Rachel and Ed love posing as macho Republican-slayers, with Rachel repeatedly begging Republican senators to please, please, please come on her show (because she’s such a formidable debater, you see), and now Schultz boasting that Republicans are terrified of him! We quake in our boots!
I’ve been begging to come on their shows for years now, but they’re all apparently too afraid of a 99 lb girl. (Or any conservative who can put 2 sentences together — Hey! Somebody get Todd Harris on the line!)
Moreover, I don’t care that they’re all a bunch of pussies at MSNBC, but cut the B.S. posturing when you won’t allow any non-retarded conservative on your airwaves.
1980′s English Rock Star Steven Morrissey Says, “I see No Difference Between Eating Animals and Pedophilia”
Why can’t these people just sing and not sell us about their bizarro social politics that just makes us despise them? As Laura Ingram writes, ‘SHUT UP AND SING’.
Looks like I will be putting all my Morrissey and Smith CD’s on Ebay. 1980′s English rock star Morrissey said in an interview, “I see no difference between eating animals and pedophilia.” Um seriously dude? Damn, and I used to actually love his music. But once again we are witness to another “tolerant” liberal who actually makes such a nonsensical statement that the killing of an animal for a food source is the same as the rape of a child. What is wrong with these people? This fool went on to say, “If I’m introduced to anyone who eats beings, I walk away.” Isn’t it amazing that we can respect him for his choices and life style, but Morrissey cannot seem to provide the same courtesy to others. Oh those tolerant moonbats.
A note to the misguided singer, eating animals is legal, pedophilia is a crime. They are hardly the same you moron.
Hey Morrissey, Carrots are People Too
1980?s English rock star Steven Morrissey said in an online interview this week that he doesn’t see a difference between eating meat and pedophilia.
“I see no difference between eating animals and paedophilia (sic),” he said, responding to a question about what’s motivated him to be a vegetarian. “They are both rape, violence, murder.”
“If I’m introduced to anyone who eats beings, I walk away,” the former frontman for The Smiths continued. Imagine, for example, if you were in a nightclub and someone said to you ‘Hello, I enjoy bloodshed, throat-slitting and the destruction of life,’ well, I doubt if you’d want to exchange phone numbers.”
Uber-Liberal Filmmaker Michael Moore Wrote Quite the OPDED in the New York Times New Years’ Day … “Obamacare is Awful”
WOW, Far-Left, socialist film maker Michael Moore says … The dirty little secret is OBAMACARE IS AWFUL!!!
In an Op-ed in the NY Times, ”The Obamacare We Deserve,’ Michael Moore wrote that “For many people, the ‘affordable’ part of the Affordable Care Act risks being a cruel joke.” We can all agree that Obamacare is awful; however, as Newsbusters points out, before you jump on the Michael Moore bandwagon and that a liberal, far-leftist socialist has come to their senses, you need to know first that Moore us for universal healthcare and a single payer and it should be 100% funded by you. Well, by those working individuals and 50% who pay income taxes.
Michael Moore calls Obamacare a loser
In an op-ed published at the New York Times, Moore wrote, “Obamacare is awful.”
“For many people, the ‘affordable’ part of the Affordable Care Act risks being a cruel joke,” added Moore. “The cheapest plan available to a 60-year-old couple making $65,000 a year in Hartford, Conn., will cost $11,800 in annual premiums. And their deductible will be $12,600. If both become seriously ill, they might have to pay almost $25,000 in a single year.”
I love how Moore put quotation marks around the word “affordable.” I’ve been doing it for years concerning this atrocious law.
But before you get excited thinking this leftist has suddenly come to his senses, be advised that you’re probably not going to agree with Moore’s reasons for disliking the “Affordable Care Act.”
Because he’s for universal health insurance funded by the roughly 50 percent of Americans that pay income taxes, of course.
BARACK OBAMA’S GOAL IS SINGLE PAYER, UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE
Obama is a “proponent of single payer, universal healthcare … We may not get there immediately.”
Moore’s full New York Times OPED can be read HERE ... ‘The Obamacare We Deserve’. Isn’t it incredible that Moore blames the right-wing for Obamacare’s flaws. However, Moore is stating a fact when he says that Barack Obama’s end goal was single payer, universal healthcare in the United States. However, Obama knew that would never fly, so his plan all along was to slowly morph into it. The problem is for many, including the LEFT, Obamacare as a stop-gap to single payer is “AWFUL”.
I believe Obamacare’s rocky start — clueless planning, a lousy website, insurance companies raising rates, and the president’s telling people they could keep their coverage when, in fact, not all could — is a result of one fatal flaw: The Affordable Care Act is a pro-insurance-industry plan implemented by a president who knew in his heart that a single-payer, Medicare-for-all model was the true way to go. When right-wing critics “expose” the fact that President Obama endorsed a single-payer system before 2004, they’re actually telling the truth.
What we now call Obamacare was conceived at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank, and birthed in Massachusetts by Mitt Romney, then the governor. The president took Romneycare, a program designed to keep the private insurance industry intact, and just improved some of its provisions. In effect, the president was simply trying to put lipstick on the dog in the carrier on top of Mitt Romney’s car. And we knew it.
But before anyone starts touting the single payer healthcare system, how is Medicare and Medicaid working for America other than bankrupting it!!!
