The pipeline conundrum.

The US runs (I think), 7 different bulk oil storage facilities across the US.   Cushing Ill. is the largest of these and draws of ships in the Gulf as well as inland pipelines.  Obama took bold strides in securing the US supply by building over 12,000 miles of new pipeline to hook these storage facilities together. Cushing can now draw off the other facilities like North Dakota, for supply. This takes a huge pressure off the supply and demand scenario visited for so many years. This also gives the reason why the US wants to keep the oil on rail.  After cars are in the US the oil companies can re-route them any place they want.

While this is going on the US is building more pipelines into Mexico to move more natural gas, condensate and crude.

They can tweak supply while they play market magic. Obama cut off Saudi Arabia from the Gulf states opening the refineries to Mexico. Trump mitigated this.

Condensate out of the Balkan presented a problem. It is high in the condensate.  The Condensate is used to make Airplane gas and Car Gas and to blend P50 and so on. It cannot be re-injected as this simply thins out the crude and adds costs to refining as the condensate is put through several times. Condensate is actually a surplus to the refinery action which is designed to make heating and fuel oil. Not every refinery produces gasoline (condensate)

The export of Condensate from the US was illegal by US law. So, Trump opened up the export of Condensate to Mexico for the first time in US history! Now Mexico can produce all the gasoline blends and diesel blends and will enter into export agreements for the same, something Canada can’t do because of the US protestors active in Canada.   I’m pretty sure there will be no resolution in the Eastern pipelines any time soon and I am just as certain a harsher stand will have to be taken against the protesters who don’t really know what they are protesting against, or for.

Lawyers, go to work!

Our Democracy in these technical times rests on a vibrant and open news media. Stephen Harper removed that from us!  This is why the Conservatives and right-wing Governments took office in New Brunswick and Quebec.  We should be able to set aside these elections and have fair contests. Lawyers have no spare time!

Harper installed Bell Media into Canada.  This company would assume control over our IP providers (costs for services will escalate now) and involved themselves in the mainline printed media in much the same way.   They used this position to block posts critical of the Conservatives allowing an unfair if not illegal votes to take place in eastern Canada.

The Conservatives are after 6 provinces in which case they will be in a position to rewrite our constitution! Their goal is to permanently set Canada as the hewer of wood and the hauler of water.  Any advancements will go to the US Republican body.

All this is being propelled by the LDS (Mormon) Church of Southern Alberta who has spun off The Wild Rose Party, the Alliance party and the Alberta

Backgrounders:

The Conservative Party of Canada was annexed by the US Republican party in 1908. They used the LDS (Mormon) church in southern Alberta as their vehicle.

John Diefenbaker gave the Avro Aero to the US then, had the prototype destroyed costing some 47,000 jobs in Canada, mostly in Ontario. This was the only supersonic fighter platform in the world!  Diefenbaker made sure Canada would never again have an aircraft industry.  He was a Traitor!

Harper and Kenny were thrown out of every trade negotiation they entered into.  No one could be that unlucky!  They were there to throw the advantage to the US!  Making sure, Canada remained subservient.

Harper, sold the Wheat Marketing Board to a private company to fill one of the demands of the US Republicans even though, the dairy farmers in the US were making their own marketing boards to control over production.

All this time, the Conservatives have known the ramifications of climate change and used this knowledge as a divisionary tactic to steal our country from us.

This travesty has gone on long enough!

 

 

 

How low Cons sunk for Control..

Stephen Harper said before he was elected, “I will change Canada so you won’t even recognize it”  And so he did.

He invited the Bell media company whom we all think we know, into Canda in a leadership role.  Bell media now has oversight on this country’s IP providers, if not outright ownership.

The Conservatives, using climate change as a divisionary tactic hope to get 6 provinces in this country.  That will give them the platform from which they can re-write the constitution.  And, you won’t like that!

Meanwhile, Bell media involved in printed press now runs articles with Scheer outright lies and makes sure there is no room for comments allowing his BS to fly rather than have it buried as the misinformation he puts out.  And, in some cases refuses membership and subscriber fees or simply blocks some posters (myself included).

With Canda’s mainstream communication in direct control of the Conservatives and the US Republicans, I say it is time for the Feds to examine the rules surrounding foreign ownership and open further the influence of the CRTC to set parameters on activities of the printed press, assuring they are open.   With the advent of the computer and mass media at this level, it is not enough that we accept financial papers as being right wing and miscellaneous papers as being left wing.

Better we do away with the labels and put in rules that assure all print papers and online renditions of same are open, not partisan.

Experts Say Vast Deserts, Absence Of Life, May Indicate Mars Was Once Run By Conservatives

Gavin Menzies book, 1421 tells the tale of the Chinese Treasure fleets of the same date. When these fleets returned home they expected fanfare, a hero welcome. The politics had changed, the Mandarins were now in charge and burned their maps, destroyed their statues, killed the animals they had brought from afar and left their giant fleets at anchor until they rotted and sunk. (a thousand ships).
I call the Mandarins the first Conservatives on earth.

The Out And Abouter

An ancient Martian city has been discovered, full of flat screen TVs, frozen food emporiums, and straws.

In a recent revelation, published in the respectably obscure scientific journal Knock Knock Who’s There Science Science Who Too Late, a team of experts from the University of Atlantis released their analysis of what ultimately caused Mars to become a barren dustbowl of shattered galactic dreams: entirely avoidable environmental disaster coupled with unresponsive conservative governance.

Lead researcher on the project, Dr. Philemin, explains.

“While the fossil record on the red planet appears to have been mostly destroyed by the last Martian governments, who went to some lengths to attempt to hide the scale of their stupidity from eternity, we still managed to turn up compelling evidence that these guys knew this shit was coming. But they chose not to act because: dividends. Those weekend houses on Phobos don’t pay for themselves, it would…

The odds against Canadian Independence

Another legacy of Stephen Harper. Perhaps you recall him saying “I will change Canada in such a way you will not recognize it!”

He ushered in Bell Media which was his greatest success. Since that time Bell Media has taken over most of the IP providers in Canada plus moved onto the print providers like Post Media.

The US Republicans have taken control of our news media, again, thanks to Stephen Harper.   They can edit, prohibit or promote at their own will.

A few things to remember before Scheer starts his outrage BS!

The worst of these was Mulroney who came very close o bankrupting the country leaving the Liberals who followed with only the choice of draconian measures to set us on a business path again.

The rest of the world is doing the same thing. With the Trump guy killing world trade at every opportunity being supported by Putin of all people and the continued efforts to recover from the recession just past and pushed by the necessary expense of climate change we are on a good path, even great

You are Jaded. The exiting Conservatives tapped the Heritage Trust fund for 760 billion dollars by capping the fund at 5% profit throughout our highest income years. This was to support the 10% flat tax or rather the flat tax was seen as a way to spend it.
In the same period of time Norway banked more than 1 trillion dollars! Ocean or prairie makes no difference. This is a gallon for gallon comparison.
Notley, working under this disadvantage managed to pull Alberta up to the number producing province in Canada! She did this by turning windfarm construction over to oil companies in trouble with the down turn.

This explains the debt to cash on hand in 2013.
‘First, the oil fund is a mathematical artifice. At three-quarters of a trillion dollars, the Norwegian Oil Fund appears to provide plenty for a country with scarcely 5 million citizens. Yet the country has accumulated a foreign debt that, at $657 billion, is almost as massive. Subtracting the debt from the fund’s $740 billion leaves a balance of only $83 billion. In other words, there is a treasure chest, but it is almost empty: Njord’s prize for future generations is only a little more than 10 percent of its putative value.’ https://www.washingtontimes&#8230;

And what is Norways debt? Comparing Norway to Alberta is flawed from the start. Norway does not send billions each year to a government that redistributes it for votes. Norway has a huge tax system that keeps people down. https://www.sovereignman.co&#8230;

To the effect Norway was the banker of the EU during the downturn.  Money loaned is set up as a debt.   Forgiving foreign debts is a mechanisim used by Governments often.

There is no huge pile of cash sitting anywhere in Alberta ready to be transferred to Ottawa! The transfer payments of which you speak comes out of Ottawa’s portion of the general tax base. The distribution is by legal formula. Even Conservatives have to do it.
Norway has an income system percentage wise is similar to Canada’s. Every citizen of Norway gets state of the art medical coverage and a broad based social system attends to citizens from the cradle to the grave.
They have an economy of scale; A 50 dollar hamburger is served to you by a 100,000 dollar a year waiter.
Using straight numbers, every individual in Norway is a millionaire.

I guess you don’t like to see anything that distorts your view of Norway being the utopia you think it is. Spinning how ottawa get money from Alberta does not change the fact Norway does not send billions to a central government but I see you’ve tried, which is normal for most marxists to do.
You didn’t read any of the articles I supplied did you? That is not surprising as it would explain how a 50 dollar hamburger delivered by a 100000 dollar a year waiter is not the way it is.
Maybe read & research about things before you make comments, it will help you understand the reality of Norway & show you the flawed claims you made.

Now where have I seen that before? Where have I seen the case of Conservatives gaining power, having the “power” to repeal Leftist policies, but then not doing it? Hhhmmm……I believe I’ve seen that happen in America. Trump took office. He and Republican-controlled House and Senate MOST DEFINITELY have the power to repeal Roe V. Wade AND the “Gay Marriage law” of June 26, 2015, neither of which have happened, yet. But who knows. With Kav on the SCOTUS, it might just happen. I pray it does! As for Canada, O, how I pray for you often, dear beloved Canada! Due to leftists, you have lost your “shine”. I pray you someday get it back! VOTE THE DEMOCRAT COMMUNISTS **OUT** NOW, Canada, it’s the ONLY way!

Wow! Things like Roe V. Wade are ingrained in the Republican Conservative world to be “overcome” The Christian right, firmly in charge. What I find distressing is the fact a foreign power is running for political office in Canada and has, on several occasions got it.
Harper and Kenny were run out of Trade Negations’ in Asia and the EU. No one could be this unlucky! It was a deliberate loss to throw the Advantage to the US! Trump has been on a course of destruction as far as international trade agreements are concerned. In hand with Putin of all people.
Harper selling the Wheat Marketing Board against the wishes of the Farmers (except those in the Closter of the LDS in the south) I find particularly offensive. Likewise Diefenbaker’s give away of the Avro Aero to the US and destroying the single flying porotype of the aircraft. Thus keeping Canada out of an important and opportunistic chance of an advanced aircraft manufacturing industry. The Avro was a world leader at the time.
Most of all I wonder what good is @CSIS is that they allowed all this to pass unchallenged.

Yes based on dissatisfaction brought about by years of dwindling trade prospect. Mind you I think the Liberals could have done better explaining the situation to the voters. They failed in this.
Ford in cutting all the environmental initiatives dropped 3 billion dollars from the provinces coffers. When Ford killed the power companies board and chairman they threw pension funds around the country into chaos. No thought was given to the problems it would cause. Short cited theatrics. By the time his reign is over the people of Ontario will be searching for still another one day wonder.

You speak of left and intermittent. This left Government has brought this province up to the number 1 economic force in Canada. The Christian right driving the Conservatives is wrong in thinking that homosexuality is a stray thought or a passing fad that can be starved or beat out of a person. Your positions are terribly wrong.
Another thing is the LCBQ is a haven for people to come and discuss their situations without the hassle of the bullies in class or the administration. It is a safe venue of discussion and if you are shaken by this you should examine your own tenuous sexuality.

I thought it was the oil that brought Alberta up to #1 not the NDP. Any party would do it if elected.
I don’t think any true Christian wants to beat or starve anybody, even the enemy! That is the very base of being a Christian! Homosexuality in itself is not stray, but some of its extreme behaviour, manifested and promoted beyond rational level, can be stray! Nowadays,the promiscuous aspect of this “condition” spills out in a perverted way, exposing minors and spoiling them – that is bad, and must not be allowed. It is common sense.
I believe that democracy without values will eventually turn into anarchy. The left-thinking governments are removing the values (by tolerating almost everything that exists in the world, regardless whether it is good or evil) and that is what Canada and many other, so called developed countries, are facing in the coming decades. The Roman Empire has fallen in just this way. History should teach us at least that! I have no fear of the “left” being bad, I know it will be defeated when the right time comes!

You are wrong again. The NDP took office after conservative policies came to roost. The Conservative/Republicans took 760 Billion dollars from the Heritage Trust fund to run their 10% income tax scam. This is where larger companies (oil) took huge deductions and a low rate. During this same period of time Norway banked over 1 trillion dollars with just 1/2 of Alberta’s production. Oil from land or ocean makes no difference it is a gallon by gallon comparison.
The Conservatives (Ralph Klein) pegged the profits of the Heritage at 5% throughout our highest revenue years. This left the bank broke when a never party took over. The Republican trickle down does not get to the walk about population! It is an elitist corporate political party.
Against incredible odds the NDP has brought this province forward.

I never said Conservatives running Alberta were good willed. They could have done with the money what NDP did too if there was good will amongst them. My point was, I am doubtful if NDP could repeat the trick in, say, Nova Scotia or even Ontario, where there is no oil, in a province that did not experience big boom-time like Alberta once did. There are lots of “false Conservatives” in PC party that are not conservative at all. The cleanup process has started, we are to wait and see if it will ever bear fruit.
NDP to me, on the other hand, even though it may seem financially successful in Alberta, may still prove disastrous in the long run. Hitler’s party also turned Germany around to be fiscally flourishing, yet it was evil at the same time. I am afraid NDP reminds me of the Nazi party a lot, even though it is not nationalistic. As the above article states, NDP takes away our Constitutionally guaranteed freedom (of religion in this particular case). Who knows what will they take next. They play the social Marxism game and it is WRONG and EVIL!

There is no knowledge on homosexuality being DNA determined, as far as I know. We don’t know if it its socially conditioned or based on genes. We don’t know if it cannot be cured either. Your sources must be very different from mine.
Neither I or anybody I respect are against homosexuality or homosexuals!!! Do not put words in my mouth please. I may condone actions of certain homosexual individuals, like I would in case of actions of any “straight” person engaging in wrongdoing. I condone promiscuous homosexual demonstrations, pride parades which are vulgar and obscene (just google for some images) – and very very NOT CIVIL!!!! I feel this gender ideology is being pushed on me against my will, and pushed too strong, considering only a small percentage of the population is homosexual. I have gay friends who DO NOT support such “advocacy” either.
I condone those who “take relish” in tormenting anyone, regardless of their sex orientation. I am also not labelling people, but if I see wrongdoing I will speak out about the deed (not the person), and will use no labels to people (where did you get this idea from – you must be hanging around a wrong crowd(.
The parallel I drew between NDP and Hitler should be obvious if you read the article, to which we are both supplying comments 🙂 If NDP is saying it will deny accreditation to Christian schools if they don’t follow NDP’s requests (which are contrary to their beliefs) then where is freedom of religion in such Hitler-like behaviour? I don’t know what statistics of teen-suicide rates you are referring to, but suicides are on the increase for sure. I blame, the society with no values for it, and here I mean the values that brought civility to this world. I am talking about several hundred years of civility, not just decades.
I was never in the closet, so I don’t have to come out of one. Perhaps you should be more open minded (as opposed to being discriminatory) to people of faith, because if they truly are people of faith, no harm will come your way from them!

Hold on, this is waiting to be approved by The Western Producer.

 
The Paris agreement was made up of 200 plus countries and the carbon tax is seen as the single effective way of reducing our carbon footprint. It has worked on every other consumption tax.
We have a 10 year window to do something; that’s all! We won’t get second chances! The whole balance will Cascade there is no doubt about that.
If a few countries hold out, where does it start and stop? Fact is it won’t get off the ground.
The carbon tax is split into party lines. The Conservatives have known of it for the past 20 years or more and chose to make it a divisive argument rather than a cure.

The Conservative goal of changing Canada.

The conservatives have been around the country using the carbon tax as a divisionary ploy. They have known of the ramifications for more than 20 years, documented.
Scheer’s program of false information was documented on Vassy’s CBC Politics show.
One item comes to mind offhand. The question in the house about the playground and grafting sunglasses. As with most of his BS, he asks a question in the house then, peddles it around the country as a fact.
In this instance, the playground was paid for by Trudeau, and the sunglass came from a family friend. The latter came forward because Speer made a complaint about them forcing the investigation. Trash!
If the Conservative/Republicans get six seats in the election, they will press for the re-write of the constitution and, that is what they are after and, you won’t like it!
