Judge Rejects Request To Block Dakota Access Pipeline Construction

Liberals are an interesting herd.  They claim to want progress and growth in the economy, but they challenge anything and everything done to promote progress and growth.  We should call them regressives instead of progressives.

Meanwhile, about 300 protesters at a camp near the drilling site have refused to leave. However, the Army Corps of Engineers announced earlier this month that the land where the camp is located would be closed as of February 22:

The Corps issued notices today informing protestors of the closure of Corps-managed federal property adjacent to the Cannonball River. Safety is the number one priority for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and therefore the Corps will close federal property in the floodplain located at the mouth of the Cannonball River on February 22, 2017, to prevent injuries and significant environmental damage in the likely event of flooding in this area…

On the approximately 50 acres where protest camps are located, grass has been removed or destroyed by the unauthorized placement of structures, vehicles, personal property, and fires. Soil erosion from a lack of vegetation cover will be exacerbated if flooding does occur, and could result in contaminated sediment runoff into the Cannonball River and Lake Oahe.

Of course the protesters have been told to leave before. Closing the land won’t mean anything unless there is someone sent to enforce this and physically remove the protesters. That was never going to happen under the Obama administration but now things have changed. Next week should be the final showdown at the protest camp, while the final showdown in court could come a week later.
