Crony Capitalism: 7 Stocks that Profit From Obama Keystone Backstab

Warren Buffett speaking to a group of students...

President Barack Obama ‘s rejection last Wednesday of a key permit for this highly strategic pipeline beneficial to U.S.’s energy independence and job creation goals fueled nationwide outrage, but did very little to boost shares of energy-related companies that could have benefited from Keystone stumbling blocks.

“Perhaps this is because the rejection was so foolish by the Administration pandering to environmentalists in an election year that investors are assuming it gets approved eventually when rationality prevails in Washington,” says a money manager who prefers to be kept anonymous amid company fundraising efforts.

Democrat Congresswoman: 20,000 Lost Keystone Jobs ‘Not That Many’

Jane Schakowsky screws up:

When the hosts asked her to defend President Obama’s decision to
block the development of the Keystone pipeline, Schakowsky did not
dispute that the project would create jobs, but denied that these jobs
were significant:

Twenty thousand jobs is really not that many jobs
and investing in green technologies will produce that and more. But
I’ll tell you what, you know it seems to me that the Republicans would
rather have an issue than a pipeline.

Liberal Politico Claims Obama State of the Union Speech at 8th Grade Level

Although the media would love to present Barack Obama as seven times brainier than George W. Bush, Byron Tau of Politico
reports “President Obama’s 2012 State of the Union address again rated
at an 8th grade comprehension level on the Flesch-Kincaid readability
test — the third lowest score of any State of the Union address since
1934.”

Disgusting Email from National Wildlife Federation Attacking Keystone Pipeline Jobs

Thanks to you, the endangered whooping crane and other treasured species are safe from the threat of toxic tar sands oil — for now.

Your support helped force the Administration’s recent decision to delay Keystone XL — a controversial pipeline that would carry up to 900,000 barrels per day of toxic tar sands oil from Canada to refineries on the Gulf Coast.

This is a huge win not only for whooping cranes, but also waterfowl, caribou, bald eagles and thousands of other treasured animals.

But our work is far from over. We still need your help in this fight.

The oil industry has redoubled their efforts to get this dirty pipeline approved. As a result, their allies in Congress bundled the Keystone XL issue into unrelated tax legislation. And that’s just the beginning. They’re determined to find a way to transport tar sands through our nation’s heartland.

Please donate to National Wildlife Federation today to help protect wildlife from dirty fuels and other threats. Together we’ll advocate for better pipeline safety standards, do grassroots work in impacted states and fight to stop dangerous projects like Keystone XL in their tracks.

Sincerely,

Felice Stadler,
Director of Climate and Energy

Arizona Democrats Try to Make it Even Easier for Mexicans to Violate Border

“This is a widely popular bill nationwide,” he said. “Revoting on SB 1070 would jack me up about 10 points in the polls.”
Antenori agreed.
“This bill is overwhelmingly popular with residents of this state,”
Antenori said. “The likelihood of support for this effort based on that
popularity amongst Arizonans is slim to none.”

U.S. farmers overwhelmingly support a Republican to be the next
president, despite a strong farm economy during President Barack Obama’s
administration, according to a Reuters survey released on Wednesday.

The farmers give a slight edge to Mitt Romney over Rick Santorum as
the best person to take on Obama and the Democrats in the November
elections.
Almost 75 percent of farmers and ranchers intend to vote for a
Republican as president, according to a random survey of 462 farmers and
ranchers at the American Farm Bureau Federation’s annual meeting this
week in Honolulu.

Mormon Democrats Like Romney

English: Governor Mitt Romney of MA

Almost all Mormon Republicans (94 percent)
have a favorable view of their fellow believer, Mitt Romney, but so do a
surprising 62 percent of LDS Democrats.
Shared religion doesn’t always trump partisan
politics, though. Just ask Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. The
Mormon Democrat from Nevada is viewed unfavorably by more than half of
LDS registered voters and fails to crack 50 percent even among fellow
party members of his faith.

McGreevey’s Revenge: NJ Democrats Try to Legalize Gay Marriage

Screw the economy, the Democrats are desperate to cobble together their homosexual base:

In a dramatic move, Democratic leaders plan to announce at a news
conference Monday that a bill legalizing gay marriage will be the first
measure introduced in the new session of the Senate and the Assembly,
sources with knowledge of their intentions said last night.

A unified Democratic leadership represents the best chance supporters
will have to see a bill legalizing gay marriage move through both
houses, according to three sources who requested anonymity because they
are not authorized to speak publicly about the plan.
