Hi Arizona. As usual, you always supply us with detailed research into the subject. Fantastic. I have not had time yet to look them all up, but I am sure we will be well-informed by the time we read this. The Keystone Pipeline is something that seriously concerns me, and all environmentalists. The damage done by this pipeline would impact the U.S. so badly, it cannot be estimated. An 8 million year old aquifer of fresh water, cannot ever be replaced, once the poison corrosive
tar sands oil has leaked. And facts & statistics show that it WILL LEAK. So why do the Oil companies Not Care?
Two reasons come to mind: (1) They love money above all things & if the water gets polluted here, they will simply move somewhere else. Most of the oil companies are international, & their executives can live in any country in the world. They already have most of their money in Swiss bank accts, and other foreign depositories. They have houses in many nations, with yachts & personal airplanes to get there. They don't give a damn what pollution they cause to America. (In fact, that may be very "profitable" to them). They may go into foreign "real estate" for their next scam.
(2) Remember that the Koch Bros got their start in the OIL business, by their daddy (Fred C.Koch), who lived in communist Russia (under Joseph Stalin) ---- and learned the business over there. After years of training & experience, Daddy Koch came home to America (Wichita, KS), & began to increase his fortune. Also, during those years, he had 2 children, who are now the famous Koch brothers. (Charles & David).
As soon as Daddy Koch got back to the USA, (from Russia), he joined the JBS, & got on the J
ociety National Council. This was a secret society which was established to "fight communism". But actually, its basic (covert) purpose was to destroy democracy, from within, using all kinds of covert means.
The men at the top (like Robt Welch & Fred C. Koch) knew they were to use all means to destroy USA & its democracy, since as founder Robt Welch insisted,
that "he did NOT believe in democracy, -- or that our Founders intended for it to be a democracy." This was printed in every edition of his member's Manual, called THE BLUE BOOK, since 1958. (So it should be easy to determine his motives for creating the subversive JBS). He wanted to takeover the GOP, as soon as possible, & then use IT, to eventually takeover the whole USA Govt... AND those with Wisdom, please NOTE - that it has happened exactly that way.
Now, as we know, the Koch brothers "use" their communist derived money (from soviet OIL training by their father). to "rig" our elections, and to use propaganda on our radio & TV -- 24/7 --- to brain-wash our people to vote Republican. And the Republican Party has been very busy trying to subvert our govt so it is no longer functional. Remember that daddy Koch got his OIL training in "communist" Russia, & then immediately came back to USA & started up working in the
Birch Society to subvert democracy. (Their covert operations were to brainwash gullible Americans, & put them up to actions that would unduly affect elections & policies enacted by our officials). Lest thou doubt me, I have personally MET some recruiters of the JBS, & been given one of their 3 hour lecture series, & given tons of their printed literature. They do appear to be genuine patriotic Americans, & some of them MAY BE naiive, & truly believe the hogwash they have been forced to promote to others. But the leadership DOES KNOW, & exerts total control over the members. NO DISSENT is ever allowed. No discussion or doubt.
NOTE: Every bit of this activity of the JBS (above) --- is the Exact OPPOSITE --- of true "Democracy" -- as we know it.
So what is the # 2 of the question (at the Top)? "Why don't the Oil companies seem to care about the total pollution of our US water?"
The ANSWER: Because they are international crime syndicates, dedicated to none other than OIL profits, (world-wide), & they have no allegiance to the USA. In fact, many other international Oil corporations, besides the KOCH Brothers, are actively, (but covertly) working for the Communists.
