Fresh Hot Lies: McCain & Palin's Pipeline to Doom by dengre Sun Sep 28, 2008 at 02:12:48 PM PDT

Listen as John McCain lies about Sarah Palin:

Almost every word the McCain/Palin campaign has uttered about Palin's Pipeline has been an exaggeration, a stretch, a fib, a misstatement""you know: A LIE.

And more than that, it is a web of lies designed to hide and protect a project that will:

    Destroy Indigenous Communities,

    Turn Alberta, Canada into a moonscape,

    Increase toxic pollution in the USA,

    Accelerate Climate Change and the destruction of our planet, and

    Cost US taxpayers Billions of dollars.

Perhaps Celina Harpe, an Elder of the Cree Nation in Alberta, Canada best explained the McCain/Palin Energy plan:

"As long as they get their money, they don't care how many of us they kill off"

Let's jump to the dark side...

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a Diary about the scandal and climate change acceleration machine also know as Sarah Palin's Pipeline to Doom (ALERT: Palin's Pipeline is a Climate Crisis Acceleration Machine). Since then I've been spending my free time digging into the details of this story and almost nothing that Sarah Palin, John McCain or any of their sycophants have said about this pipeline and Palin's "energy" record has been true. Really, it is all bullshit designed to keep your eyes off of the billions of gallons of oil embedded in the Alberta Tar Sands.

This is another long dengre Diary. There is a lot of news in here and I hope it will be worth your time. It will be if you want to bust the myth of the McCain/Palin Energy plan.

Perhaps an annotated map will help:

I flipped on the teevee Saturday and Sarah Palin had come out of hiding to speak at a rally in Pennsylvania (McCain's poodle, the "independent" Senator for Connecticut, was there to whisper talking points into her ear). Once again, she said that John McCain would put her in charge of US energy policy. That would be a very, very bad thing for the planet.

Back at the end of the last century, the issue of sweatshops was getting a lot of mainstream attention. By 1999 corporations were reeling from consumer pressure and it was looking like Congress was going to take some action. At that time, Dennis (more...)
