Omaha tycoon Warren Buffett urges the woman who tried to throw Nebraska farms and ranches under Keystone XL bulldozers to run for president

"#45" evidently means "President #45"
Hillary Clinton has put her thumb on the pro-Keystone XL pipeline decision scale so shamelessly that her State Department received two rare spankings from the EPA about its crudely biased environ­mental impact studies of the Keystone XL pipeline siting.
     Clinton, who has all but called for Bradley Manning's head on a stick, was exposed by State Department cables he wikileaked which showed a sickeningly cozy relationship of the U.S. Department of State with a foreign oil company (TransCanada) that betrayed Nebraska landowners threatened by TransCanada with eminent domain even though the company has not been issued pipeline permits.
    We're sure that if TransCanada had tried to run a pipeline anywhere near the pristine reservoirs of New York State, where Clinton lives, she would have put an immediate stop to it, but evidently an extension to the leakiest new pipeline ever, directly over North America's most valuable underground aquifer (the original route) didn't bother Hillary at all. Nebraska is, after all, a flyover state.
    Recently a former employee compared Hillary's friends at TransCanada to an organized crime syndicate before a Canadian Senate hearing.
     Speaking of which, both Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman and Attorney General Jon Bruning were forced by press exposure to return political contributions from TransCanada because, of course, foreign corporations are legally prohibited from renting U.S. politicians, even brazenly amoral ones.
     Incidentally, Bruning and Heineman just lost another round in a landowner lawsuit against Nebraska involving opposition to the Keystone XL pipeline.
     In respect of corporations, gay AKSARBENT readers should know that only one company of the 1,000 that HRC evaluated rated lower than Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway in its treatment of gay employees and job applicants: ExxonMobil.
