Why the Dakota Pipeline Stoppage Is Only A Temporary Illusion
Here's where oil bribes go... 6 Republicans and 1 Democrat who are the biggest grifters for oil you could hope to assemble in America
Good Day World!
Make no mistake. It's all about money.
Big Oil has had Congress in it's clutches for a long time and now they have a new partner in crime:
His name is Donald Trump (He's number 6 on the list above)and he's busy feathering the nests of his fellow rich rats before even being sworn in as the country's next president.
Trump and his greedy minions can't wait until President Obama leaves the White House so they can reverse the stay he just put on the Army Corps of Engineers.
Flip-flop artist Paul Ryan tweeted, "This is big-government decision-making at it's worth. I look forward to putting this anti-energy presidency behind us."
Well, I'm sure Ryan does look forward to a future of no restriction for Big Oil. Notice the list on top of this page - Ryan's the 3rd biggest benefactor on Big Oil's Bribe parade.
He joins his fellow Congressmen and other wealthy Americans who have turned their backs on the public's best interest and safety.
If you want to know just how sweet this scam against average Americans is consider this:
For every $1 the industry spends on campaign contributions and lobbying in DC, it gets back $119 in subsidies!! In summary, I think it's a foregone conclusion that the Dakota Pipeline will be completed because Big Oil can't be stopped. It has too many tentacles in our government. Time for me to walk on down the road...
