Keystone XL Pipeline: The Ugly, The Bad And The Secret Funnel!

If you approve of a Canadian corporation building yet another pipeline across the heart of the American Midwest, that is your prerogative.  If you oppose Obama's potential approval of the northern leg of the Keystone XL Pipeline, as an American, that is also your prerogative. Before, moving-on, I am anticipating you know Trans Canada has an existing Keystone Pipeline (See bold red pipeline in 2011 MCT image, left). The XL project is a "brontosaurus" version surrounded by a protecvtive moot of lies (jobs), misrepresentations (safety and jobs), and financial contributions (Congress, lobbyist, surrogates and stooges across party lines).  Most Americans have no idea there is active development and funding of a 'secret' pipeline that is even more dangerous to the nation than the XL pipeline. 

On August 15, 2013 USdailyrepresent Dot US's Jasper McChesney published an infographic about the secret pipeline (posted below). The secrecy surrounding this pipeline is focused on you, me and others who allow ourselves to continue as unknowing subjects in the active and flourishing world of international corporatism.

While the secret pipeline is as old as US history it has grown with time to a reliable funnel of contributions to political campaigns.  The funnel was given a major fissure with the SCOTUS ruling on the Citizens United case in 2010.
