Sending forked smoke signals

A guest post from long-time reader J-Bob … who should not be confused with Bob, the Bluebird of Bitterness, who is a totally different gender:

The Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) is an 1172-mile project, starting at the northwest corner of North Dakota near Canadian border and ending at an existing oil terminal in Patoka, Illinois, about 60 miles east of St. Louis.

DAPL maps from J-Bob

DAPL has stirred opposition on three fronts:  1. The Sioux tribe sees it as a threat to sacred burial grounds; 2. environmentalists worry about its impact on area water sources; and 3. infrastructure experts challenge its necessity.

Do the arguments against DAPL have merit?  Economists and cost-benefit analysts are better equipped to debate the third point, but what about the threat to grave sites and ground water tables?  Valid concerns?

Knee-jerks said “Hell No, DAPL has got to go!” then banded together with other errant moonbeams and indolent riff-raff for a massive show of public outrage and merriment.  And what did they do?  Surprise!  Partied hearty, smoked lots mota, swilled lotsa swag, got lotsa air-time, left behind lotsa trash and left someone else to pick up the clean-up tab.

Skeptics said “Not so fast!” then joined with other inquisitive minds to study a map of America.  And what did they find?  Surprise!  Lotsa pipelines transporting lotsa oil and natural gas, quite a few in North Dakota, by the way, with one pipeline – Northern Border Pipeline Co. – already crossing the disputed territory since 1983, with not a squawk from anyone.

Hmm.  Sioux tribe sending forked smoke signals?  Imagine that.

On Tuesday, California’s Attorney General, Xavier Becerra, slapped two undercover investigators from the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) with a whopping FIFTEEN felony charges.

Over the years, Becerra has received thousands of dollars from Planned Parenthood and other abortion activists.

If you recall, it was CMP that exposed Planned Parenthood’s baby parts selling business, which instigated a Congressional investigation that has put PP’s federal funding in jeopardy.

Those shown in the videos illegally haggling over the price of dead baby parts have yet to be charged.

Legal? Yes. Safe? NO.

On March 24, 2017, the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in St. Louis sent yet another botched abortion patient to the ER.

This represents the 65th documented patient hospitalized with abortion complications by Planned Parenthood in St. Louis since 2009.

“We consider this the most dangerous abortion facility in the U.S.” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

“If any other medical office in the country was calling for emergency assistance for patients as often as this facility is, it would be a public scandal. Investigative reporters would be falling over themselves trying to expose this safety crisis.

“But since abortion is involved, there is not one word from the media. Their silence is enabling this dangerous abortion business to continue the carnage of babies and mothers alike.”
