Keystone XL pipeline owner seeks $15B in damages after Biden decision to block permit By Ronn Blitzer Fox Business news July 5 2021
The pipeline would have carried 800,000 barrels of oil a day from Canada to the U.S.
Keystone XL Pipeline officially canceled after Biden blocks key permit
The Biden administration has put an official end to the Keystone XL Pipeline after blocking permit. Fox News Correspondent Casey Stegall with more.
The Canadian firm that owned the Keystone XL pipeline announced it will be bringing a claim against the U.S. government seeking $15 billion in damages due to President Biden's revocation of a permit for the project.
TC Energy filed a notice of intent with the State Department's office of the legal adviser indicating that it will bring a legacy NAFTA claim under the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement.
GOP BILL WOULD REQUIRE BIDEN ADMIN TO REPORT NUMBER OF JOBS KILLED BY KEYSTONE PIPELINE CANCELLATION
"TC Energy will be seeking to recover more than US$15 billion in damages that it has suffered as a result of the U.S. Government’s breach of its NAFTA obligations," the company said in a press release.
FOX Business reached out to the White House for a response to the news but did not immediately receive a response.
Biden announced on his first day in office in January that he was revoking the presidential permit, resulting in thousands of lost jobs.
TC Energy officially rescinded its bid for the project in early June. That announcement came just hours after Republican senators demanded the Biden administration account for the number of jobs killed by the president’s decision to cancel the 1,200 mile-long pipeline.
The pipeline, which would have carried 800,000 barrels of oil a day from the tar sands of Canada into the U.S. The pipeline’s construction was first delayed in 2015 under Barack Obama before being revived under Donald Trump in 2017.

“MAJOR SCANDAL”: Liberal Law Professor Sounds the Alarm Over New Bombshell Joe & Hunter Biden Scandal by Collin Rugg about 5 hours ago updated about 2 hours ago
The then-vice president also flew with his son to Mexico City while using Air Force 2 so Hunter Biden could attend meeting pertaining to a large business deal.
The Daily Mail provides this report:
EXCLUSIVE: Joe Biden entertained Hunter’s Mexican billionaire business associates in the vice president’s office in 2014 and even flew with his son to Mexico City on Air Force 2 so Hunter could attend meetings over a ‘flippin gigantic’ deal
Hunter and Biden family friend Jeff Cooper hatched a plan in 2013 to invest in multiple businesses in Mexico and Latin America, using their relationship with the Mexican billionaire Alemán family whose late patriarch, Miguel Alemán Valdes, served as president of Mexico.
Cooper, an attorney who worked with Hunter’s late brother Beau Biden on asbestos claims cases and donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Biden political campaigns, was particularly excited by the venture’s prospects, writing to Hunter in February 2013: ‘This is setting up to be flippin gigantic brother.’
The prospects for profit only grew when Hunter joined the board of Ukrainian gas company Burisma the following year.
He and Cooper sought the help of Valdés’ grandson, airline CEO Miguel Alemán Magnani, to forge a relationship with the richest man in Latin America, Carlos Slim, in an attempt to cash in on the privatization of the giant state-owned oil company Pemex for Burisma and themselves.
According to liberal law professor at George Washington University Jonathan Turley, the actions took by Joe and Hunter Biden are a “major scandal” if true.
“It is clear that Hunter Biden was selling access and influence,” Turley wrote on his blog. “It appears that Joe Biden was aware of that effort. That is very serious. If these emails are false, they are a major story. If they are true, they are a major scandal. Presumably, however, this story will result in another run to the nearest ice cream shop and breathlessly covered on the current frozen delights of the President.”
Read his full post below:
We have previously discussed the concerted and often embarrassing blackout in the media on stories involving Hunter Biden’s influence peddling during his father’s tenure as Vice President. That includes the burying of the laptop story and the growing contradictions over his father’s denial of any knowledge or involvement in his shady business dealings. Even recent reports that Hunter may have paid prostitutes with his father’s account were blacked out by mainstream media which exhaustively pursued any story related to the Trump children and their dealings and life styles. Now, however, there is a major allegation that Hunter used access to his father to seal previously unknown deals with Mexican businessmen, including Carlos Slim. A picture shows Hunter with the businessmen in the Vice President residence with his father.
As in the past, Americans interested in such stories have had to rely on the foreign press or a couple domestic sites for such information.
The new emails include references to the use of Air Force II by Hunter Biden to pursue the deals — a similar pattern revealed with regard to the China dealings. The emails detail a number of visits to Mexico, including a February 2016 flight on Air Force II with his father. On the plane was his business partner Jeff Cooper, who ran Illinois-based SimmonsCooper. That is one of the largest asbestos litigation firms in the country and Hunter was given 3 percent of Cooper’s venture capital firm Eudora Global, according to emails. President Biden’s brother (who featured in past controversial deals) was also reportedly involved in some of these efforts.
These dealings continued into 2018 as Hunter pushed for deals with Slim. One text message from July 24, 2018 reads “Spoke to my dad about ‘Slim ask” and Cooper responds “Oh that sounds SO F’ING GOOD.”
It obviously does not sound quite so good if you are a reporter who has been repeatedly assured by President Biden that he had no knowledge or involvement in any dealings with Hunter. That was previously refuted by various sources. Hunter himself contradicted his father’s repeated denial. Then there are the emails referring to the “Big Guy”, which witnesses say was Joe Biden. Then there is Tony Bobulinski who stated that he personally met with Joe Biden to discuss Hunter’s business dealings. Bobulinski is repeatedly praised by Hunter Biden in the emails and identified as the person in control of transactions for “the family.” He has directly contradicted Joe Biden’s denial of any knowledge or involvement in his son’s dubious dealings.
The new emails contain additional information directly contradicting President Biden. In addition to earlier pictures from golf trips and references to his involvement or knowledge, new material refers to a notable dinner arranged in Washington, D.C.
Hunter arranged for then Vice President Biden to have dinner on April 16, 2015 with his Ukrainian, Russian and Kazakhstani business associates. They appropriately chose a private room at Café Milano, a Georgetown restaurant that brags that it is “Where the world’s most powerful people go.” After the dinner, Hunter received an email from Vadym Pozharskyi, an executive with the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, to thank him for introducing him to his father: “Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure.”
It is clear that Hunter Biden was selling access and influence. It appears that Joe Biden was aware of that effort. That is very serious. If these emails are false, this is a major story. If they are true, this is a major scandal. Presumably, however, this story will result in another run to the nearest ice cream shop for breathless coverage on the current frozen delights of the President.
Speeches HD Jun 24, 2016
Mankind -- that word should have new meaning for all of us today.
We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore.
We will be united in our common interests.
Perhaps its fate that today is the 4th of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom, not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution -- but from annihilation.
We're fighting for our right to live, to exist.
And should we win the day, the 4th of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day when the world declared in one voice:
We will not go quietly into the night!
We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on!
We're going to survive! Today, we celebrate our Independence Day! --
Independence Day (1996), Director: Roland Emmerich, Writers: Dean Devlin, Roland Emmerich. Stars: Will Smith (Captain Steven Hiller), Bill Pullman (President Thomas J. Whitmore), Jeff Goldblum (David Levinson).
