Plain Talk: Senator Cramer Says Special Olympics Funding Unlike to Be Cut, Enbridge Says They’re Ready for Any Protests Targeting Line 3

On this episode of Plain Talk, Senator Kevin Cramer takes listener questions on the USMCA, President Trump’s proposed space force, and the failure of the so-called “Green New Deal” in the Senate. Cramer also responded to a listener question about the Special Olympics, saying he doesn’t believe the cuts proposed by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos

We Have to Hold the Groups Behind Valve Turners Criminally Responsible for Pipeline Tampering Before They End up Killing Someone

Yesterday a group of political extremists broke into an Enbridge pipeline facility in Minnesota and attempted to turn off two oil pipelines. Specifically the company’s Line 3 and Line 4 pipelines, which have a combined capacity of over half a million barrels of oil per day. The company is in the process of replacing the

Protesters converge on the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco, Sept. 13, 2018. The message of the protesters was mainly directed at the California governor, Jerry Brown, calling on him to stop oil drilling in the state and protect residents who live close to oil facilities.

Doing Bad Things to the Environment in the Name of Environmentalism

Certain very large, very noisy factions of the American left have taken to opposing the construction of pipeline infrastructure vigorously. I’m not just talking about political and legal obstruction. Roadblocking a pipeline by gumming up the regulatory process, or seemingly endless litigation, is one thing. But often these projects are opposed with violence and criminal

Angry Pipeline Protesters Use Threats and Shouting to Shut Down Regulatory Meeting on Line 3 Project

Today the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission was set to consider whether or not Enbridge had met certain conditions for regulatory approval of their Line 3 replacement project. Unfortunately the PUC never got to act one way or another because the meeting was shut down by crude, shouting, disruptive thugs who probably look pretty familiar, in

Pipeline Companies Shouldn’t Have to Pay for the Costs of Protests Against Them

Over in Minnesota the opponents of Enbridge’s Line 3 Replacement project have promised protests akin to what we here in North Dakota saw against the Dakota Access Pipeline. If that’s true, what Minnesotans will suffer is violence and vandalism. That’s the legacy of the #NoDAPL movement. There is absolutely nothing wrong with peacefully assembling on

Video: Anti-Oil Zealots Shut Down Public Hearing on Line Three Pipeline

The political extremists in the anti-oil movement have promised to make Enbridge’s Line 3 replacement project into the next #NoDAPL movement. Given that the protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline were hugely violent, and saw millions of dollars worth of vandalism and economic damage perpetrated in the region, the folks of Minnesota should feel a sense

Protest Groups Must Be Held Civilly Liable for Harm Done to Lawful, Permitted Industry

I’m sure the folks at Enbridge, who are in the process of building the Line 3 Replacement pipeline which crosses down from Canada through the northeast corner of North Dakota and across Minnesota to Wisconson, are apprehensive that their project will turn into as big of a mess as the Dakota Access Pipeline did.

Audio: Line 3 Pipeline Project Manager Says There Will Be More Environmental Impacts if Old Line Isn’t Replaced

UPDATE: This post originally said the public hearings were being held by Enbridge. That was an error. They’re being held by the State of Minnesota. Public hearings regarding Line 3 pipeline replacement project have begun in Minnesota. And of course, because pipelines are a hot political topic these days, those hearings are featuring push back from
