Last week the Senate, with votes from Democrats and Republicans, passed long-stalled Keystone XL pipeline legislation. President Obama is planning on vetoing the legislation despite broad support from lawmakers and the American people. In the meantime, the Saudis are doing everything they can to undermine U.S. domestic oil production and far-left eco-fascist groups like the Sierra Club are loving it. Washington Free Beacon's Lachlan Markay has the details:
Saudi Arabia’s efforts to “drown” American energy producers make the oil-rich theocracy a crucial ally of the environmentalist movement, according to a leading green group.
The House of Saud, the kingdom’s royal family, is “our best ally in the fight against Keystone XL,” according to Paul Rauber, the senior editor of Sierra, the bi-monthly magazine published by the Sierra Club, a leading environmentalist group.
“Environmentalists are depending on President Barack Obama’s veto pen to block the project—at least until the State Department issues its final ruling in the matter,” Rauber wrote. “But we have another, even more potent ally in the fight: the House of Saud.”
The Sierra Club is purposely favoring the Saudis over Americans for jobs and economic advantages in order to meet an ideological and political goal while ignoring the environmental practices used in the Middle East. Terrific.
