That Popular #OccupyResoluteDesk

Via The Hill, North Dakota Governor Dalrymple sends his love, emphasis mine:

“The second reason we are on the wrong track is that the Federal government is killing energy development with overly burdensome regulations. The best example of this is the Keystone XL pipeline which the Obama Administration will not allow to be built. The State of North Dakota is currently experiencing an oil boom in the Bakken formation. We have doubled our oil production in the last four years and are about to become the second largest oil producing state behind only Texas. But we cannot effectively market our crude oil domestically without a large North-South pipeline. North Dakota oil producers were scheduled to feed the Keystone pipeline with 100,000 barrels of crude oil per day. Now we will not be able to supply the choice American markets because President Obama says he needs more time to study Keystone. The fact is he has had over three years to study this issue. Congress should step in and pass Senator Hoeven’s measure which would authorize the Keystone project. It’s the common sense thing to do.”

It’s almost as though the governor thinks #OccupyResoluteDesk should cut into his golf time to, you know, do his job or something.
Via Left Coast Rebel:

With the filing of H. CON. RES. 107 by Rep Walter Jones (R-NC) impeachment proceedings against Barry have begun. The resolution brought forth by Rep Jones asserts that “President Pull-Ups” abused his power when he involved the US in military actions in Libya last year.

I don’t think that this will get much traction. Impeaching the President during an election year is going to be a precedent no one wants to set. Also, Drool Bucket Reid over in the Senate is no more going to try an impeachment than he is going to work on a budget.
Speaking of the Senate, more of #OccupyResoluteDesk’s strategy for keeping Reid in place and well-supplied with spit stands revealed. Obama is sending his clone to run for the Virginia seat being vacated by James Webb. If Reid is a drool bucket, then Timmy Kaine is a small, dented spittoon.

    Never mind Reid, Boehner doesn’t have the nads to push this.

    How is a pipeline designed to export these oil resources abroad going to cut USA dependence on foreign oil?   Just wondering……..

    WAR!: In “Dangerous Liaisons”, the Glenn Close character  is being bullied into sexual submission by the one played by John Malkovitch. She DOES NOT roll over and take it. She DOES NOT compromise.  A three-prong battle strategy to counter the elite media and Obama’s minions is provided at the link. We are in TOTAL WAR.
