Trump: “I Haven’t Had One Call”

Trump hasn’t heard anything. Thousands of predominately Native American protesters, joined by thousands of veterans, environmental groups, including Greenpeace, the Sierra Club, and the Center for Biological Diversity—all vocal in their opposition, but Trump hasn’t had one call.
Nearly 700 people have been arrested since protests first began last year, but Trump doesn’t think this is controversial.

Who owns the Dakota Access Pipeline ? 

Ownership belongs to: Dakota Access, LLC, a fully owned subsidiary of Bakken Holdings Company, LLC which is a joint venture of Energy Transfer Partners LP (60%) and Sunoco Logistic Partners LP (40%), owns 75% of the pipeline, while Phillips 66 owns a 25% stake. Trump has stakes in both Phillips 66, and Energy Transfer Partners. Maybe that is why he doesn’t hear the protests.


Who owns the land?

“The Black Hills of Dakota are sacred to the Sioux Indians. In the 1868 treaty, signed at Fort Laramie and other military posts in Sioux country, the United States recognized the Black Hills as part of the Great Sioux Reservation, set aside for exclusive use by the Sioux people. In 1874”

Trump says there will be “Thousands of jobs”…actually it’s only about seventy full time jobs, in exchange for the drinking water of thousands of people.

“The granting of an easement, without any environmental review or tribal consultation, is not the end of this fight — it is the new beginning. Expect mass resistance far beyond what Trump has seen so far,” the Indigenous Environmental Network said in a statement.

Trump hasn’t had one call. Is the ringer off?

The pipeline would desecrate ancestral lands, threaten the water supply, and unfairly burden the Standing Rock Sioux tribe. But what matters to Trump is that he “Make America Great Again”.

Trump’s idea of a “great again” America is an America he can fit in his pocket.

  1. Haven’t had one call? Donald, who would want to call you? The quickest way to transport that dirty tar sand oil, would be through Alberta’s adjacent province, British Columbia–for refining and rates-shipment to China. The British Columbians are not stupid, and refuse to endanger their pristine landscape.

    But, count on dumb-headed TrumpAmerica to risk our water aquifers. Donald, ignorant moves–perhaps to play one-up on President Barack Obama–will have consequences. So, do you have your scapegoats lined-up already, for when there’s an environmental catastrophe?
