Did Warren Buffett Have a Hand in the Keystone Pipeline Being Shut Down?

CrownThomas's picture


President Obama seems to be all about oil lately. Whether it's increasing the size of government to "crack down on oil speculators", or you know, perhaps exhibiting crony capitalism at its finest.

As the Obama administration continues to do everything it can to kill the Keystone pipeline, another entity with a rather famous (and tax loving) founder salivates over the profits it will reap transporting the crude from Canada.

Oh, and your typical corrupt everyday Senator may play a role as well.

Glenn Beck makes a case (forgive the bouts of ADD) that Obama's favorite taxpayer may have just played a part in getting the pipeline shut down.

WB took the same political path to save his banks and other financial investments, with your taxpayer money.

WB is evil scum.

If WB was a moral man, he would have, along with all the other Banksters, turned over all their personal capital to the US taxpayer to off-set the financial disaster they created.

I'll say it again.  WB is evil scum.

Those of you who discount the points being made because you dont like Glenn Beck, you ARE Sheeple.

The National Enquirer was the only "news" outlet willing to out John Edwards.  Were they wrong?

Who cares whether it is Murrow or Glenn Beck?  Is he wrong?  FUCK Right v. Left and let's stick to Right vs. Wrong.

And yes. This IS OLD news.  Of course Buffett is behind Keystone just like Soros is behind the moratorium in the GOM.  It's no accident those rigs went to Brazil.

Not sufficient time to determine if the pipeline is in the national interest. How quaint. You mean this time he is going to wait while someone reads the bill before passing it?

it's got nothing to do with "national interests" ..this is a commercial development and Govt should get out of the friggin way (of all markets)

would have thought Bummas Solyndra malinvestment (debacle) would have taught him he's got no head for numbers or sound judgement

The answer is; no he didn't. It's a complicated thesis; for no reason; it's simply Obummer playing to his environmental freaks.

Doesn't Buffett's railroads trasnport a lot of clean coal from Montant/Wyoming?  Warren is a douchebag klepto.  ZH is still filled with some Hussein lovers too.

Zerohedge is over as a source of intelligent debate. Glenn Beck fans have come on board. And it was so promising, at first.

Yo skiller - Beck has been right on a lot of things...most notably the gold price 3 years ago. Remember when Anthiny "the small" Weiner tried to get him off the air becuase of a Gold company that was advertising on his show?

Are you Anthiny the small Weiner?

I am a fan. He has be right about a number of things. When was the last time he was proven wrong about any of the facts he presented? I'll stand with GB.

Evaluate all data.. and keep an open mind...  Not by blocking out information based on name or other.  I'm not a huge fan, but he has some good points and helps other out of the matrix.
