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

If We’re Going to Preserve the History of #NoDAPL, How About We Document All of It?

Here’s a photo of it: That’s just fine and dandy. The protests were a major historical event,

Another Loss for #NoDAPL: Judge Rules That Dakota Access Pipeline Can Remain Open

The Dakota Access Pipeline has been open and moving oil for months now, but there was a chance that a federal judge could shut that flow down based on legal maneuvering by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and the activist lawyers representing them. Earlier this year federal Judge James Boasberg found that the U.S. Army

The Dakota Access Pipeline Company Shouldn’t Have Given the State of North Dakota a Dime

“Dakota Access Pipeline LLC has donated $15 million to the North Dakota Department of Emergency Services (DES) to help retire debt incurred by the state as a result of its response to the Dakota Access Pipeline protests,” Governor Doug Burgum announced in a press release which just dropped in my inbox. “We are grateful for

Standing Rock Chairman Who Helped Instigate #NoDAPL Protests Gets Thumped in Re-Election Campaign

The often violent and often unlawful #NoDAPL protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline made David Archambault, chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, something of a national and even international celebrity.

Can We Expect Political Extremists to Attack the Fargo-Moorhead Diversion Project Now?

Back during the violent demonstrations against the Dakota Access Pipeline one casus belli of the political extremists perpetrating them was the idea that the pipeline would disturb sacred artifacts and burial grounds along the route. This was a problematic argument because the DAPL project, through that disputed area near the Standing Rock Indian Reservation, followed an

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.

Standing Rock Water Intake at Heart of the #NoDAPL Protests Moved Away From Pipeline Crossing

Last year, when the violent #NoDAPL protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline were just beginning to heat up, a talking point often deployed by the pipeline opponents was the fact that an intake for the Standing Rock Sioux’s tribe’s water supply was just downstream from where the pipeline would cross the river at Fort Yates.

Whoa: Dakota Access Pipeline Owners File Racketeering Lawsuit Against #NoDAPL Activists

From last summer through the first couple of months of 2017 there was an all-out assault on the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. Protesters, summoned to rural south central North Dakota by the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and a myriad of environmental groups, blocked roads and set fires and harassed pipeline workers all in an
