BNSF Railroad -- "The Rest Of The Story!"


Canadian Oil
Hmm... this is 'interesting'.
Kind of adds a little 'dimension' to the topic-, like "the Rest of the Story".
Kind of tarnishes the 'environmental' platform!

Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad owns all of the rail lines in the US connecting to western Canada, and they haul 80%+ of the crude from Canada to the Midwest and Texas, or charge other Short Line railroads a fee to use their tracks.

BNSF charges $30 per barrel to haul the oil, where the Keystone would cost $10 by the State Department’s own estimates.
BNSF is owned by Berkshire-Hathaway whose chairman is Warren Buffet.

In the last 2 election cycles, Buffet gave extensively to democrat causes and candidates, including $40K+ to Obama in 2012. He also bundled and hosted numerous fundraisers for Obama.

If anyone here believes the pipeline isn't being blocked by Obama on Buffet’s behalf, you're nuts.
B-H could stand to lose $2B+ a year if the pipeline goes in, and Buffett makes the same amount every year it's delayed.
This is crony capitalism at its finest, and what is making people mad at our government and capitalist system.

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
