Natural Gas NOW
A bill has been introduced in the South Dakota Senate on behalf of their governor that would go after out-of-state “riot booster” pipeline opponents. Yea!
When the DAPL pipeline opponents were burning bridges, destroying property, vandalizing equipment, leaving tons of garbage and costing North Dakota millions, I wrote a post titled “DAPL Vandals and the Trendy Elitists Who Coddle Them.” I pointed out the rioters and vandals had monetary support through a group called Rising Tide North America, which was funded by the Max and Anna Levinson Foundation (guilt-ridden, virtue-signaling heirs of an oil company) and the Tides Foundation. One of the biggest funders of the latter, in turn, has been Warren Buffett’s kid, through the NoVo Foundation. The Buffetts, of course, own trains and DAPL is competition when it comes to shipping oil by rail.
Now, there is the prospect of similar protests in South Dakota as pipeline opponents rise to fight other essential infrastructure needed to move Bakken and Canadian oil to market. The Badlands state isn’t called that for nothing, though. Governor Kristi Noem has propose two bills that are now before her State Senate that would potentially go after these funders, enablers and “riot boosters.”
