I’m getting quite tired of the #NoDAPL protestors coming to this state and causing trouble. If this administration wasn’t headed by such a limp dicked piece of shit it wouldn’t have gotten this far out of control. Many of the protestors would be awaiting trial in Federal Court and likely a lengthy stay courtesy of Uncle Sam.
Destroying property, polluting the environment, starting fires, blocking railroad tracks and highways, throwing rocks, burning logs and molotov cocktails, and shooting at officers is in no way ‘peaceful’. Most of those arrested have been out-of-state agitators. They have been egged on by the liberal activists Mark Ruffalo, Shailene Woodley, Susan Sarandon, Kristen Wiig and Jesse Jackson, as well as former Presidential Candidate Jill Stein. It has dragged on far too long because of the direct actions of President Obama. This is unacceptable interference.

The Dakota Access Pipeline has met all legal requirements according to the Federal Courts.
The route follows other pipelines as much as possible to minimize impact. The Norther Border Pipeline crosses the Missouri River at Lake Oahe at the same place as where DAPL is set to cross.
Every time anything resembling aboriginal artifacts has been found the archaeologists have been called out to investigate. Work has stopped in those areas until cleared and/or the pipeline re-routed so as not to disturb any potential historical sites. The route does NOT cross the reservation.
This shit needs to stop!
