Obama Judge Illegally Blocks Keystone Pipeline

Here we go again.

What was once unthinkable is now a routine spectacle as Obama and Clinton judges block a presidential move because they claim that the things they wanted considered, weren’t.

A federal judge blocked the controversial Keystone XL oil pipeline Thursday, saying the Trump administration’s justification for approving it last year was incomplete.

Judge Brian Morris’ ruling repeatedly faulted the Trump administration for reversing former President Obama’s 2015 denial of the pipeline permit without proper explanation. He said the State Department “simply discarded” climate change concerns related to the project.

Morris is an Obama appointee. Obviously.

So he’s illegally blocking a policy that resulted from an election while protecting his boss’ own illegal move.

In rejecting the permit, Morris relied mainly on arguing that State, the agency that analyzed the project, didn’t properly account for factors such as low oil prices, the cumulative impacts of greenhouse gases from Keystone and the Alberta Clipper pipeline and the risk of oil spills.
