Obama says Army Corps examining Dakota oil pipeline route

Obama says Army Corps examining Dakota oil pipeline route

The pipeline will cross the Missouri River and lands sacred to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.

"It is a lot of people showing their support for Standing Rock", Horinek said on Monday by telephone from North Dakota. The federal appeals court said the tribe hasn't "demonstrated that an injunction is warranted".

According to Dakota Access Pipeline's website, construction will create 2,000 to 4,000 jobs and 12 to 15 permanent jobs in North Dakota.

Protest organizer Mekasi Camp-Horinek said after he and his mother were arrested, police placed them in one of the metal enclosures together and wrote a number on his arm.

Chanting "we stand with Standing Rock" and "no justice, no peace", about 100 protesters lined the sidewalks of Westchester Drive and Weldon Howell Parkway Tuesday afternoon in front of the Dallas headquarters of Energy Transfer Partners, the pipeline company at the heart of the months-long pipeline standoff in North Dakota. The panel could decide to levy fines of up to $200,000, Fedorchak said, though she said such a high amount would be unlikely. He said a meeting Wednesday in Bismarck is being discussed.

The official has knowledge of the investigation, but was not authorized to speak publicly and did so on condition of anonymity. Clinton should win the presidency, but not with the margin she would like to project the death of the GOP.

Picha said he was notified of the most recent discovery in a timely manner but didn't report it to the commission because he thought the pipeline company would.

Ed Fallon, with the Bold Iowa group, says people who oppose the pipeline are frustrated it is moving forward.

But some of the protesters in Dallas had other, more systemic reasons they were out in front of Energy Transfer Partners Tuesday.

Obama did not say if or how he was willing to intervene further, but did indicate the Army Corps of Engineers, which controls easement rights where the pipeline would go beneath the Missouri River, is now thinking about how the path could be "rerouted" in a way that would alleviate the concerns of the Standing Rock Sioux and other downstream residents.

Protesters have been gathered in Standing Rock, North Dakota, since the Sioux tribe filed for a temporary restraining order in early September "to prevent further destruction of the tribe's sacred sites by Dakota Access Pipeline".

The U.S. government has blamed Russian Federation for cyber attacks on Democratic Party organizations. The Clinton email scandal is different in that it is a reprisal of a known controversy.

"There's too much going on right now", said Kandi Mossett of the Indigenous Environmental Network."It's a very scary and tense situation being in the camp, and it goes hour by hour".

"I think that my general rule when I talk to governors and state and local officials, whenever they're dealing with protests - including, for example, during the "Black Lives Matter" protests - is there's an obligation for protesters to be peaceful, and there's an obligation for authorities to show restraint".

While this environmental hazard has gained attention in the media, Rapp wants students to remember that the Dakota Access Pipeline is not just an environmental issue. This after the tribe sued the federal government in July, stating that they were not properly consulted about the construction project.
