TransCanada FERC Filing Proves AGIA Works

Posted by Ron Devito on January 29, 2010

Synopsis

The Anchorage Daily News reported that “TransCanada Corp. [on January 29, 2010] filed a detailed plan [with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission] for holding an open season this summer to seek commitments from potential shippers to supply gas for the proposed North Slope pipeline (Bluemink, 2010, ¶1).

The pipeline was made possible by Governor Palin’s Alaska Gasline Inducement Act (AGIA). The main proposal envisioned under AGIA will result in a 1,715-mile natural gas pipeline to run from Alaska’s North Slope to a connecting point in Alberta, Canada. The pipeline — a joint venture of TransCanada and Exxon-Mobil will bring Alaskan natural gas to the Lower 48 states. The pipeline is expected to be complete in 2019. It will be North America’s largest infrastructure project and is estimated to cost between $32 billion and $41 billion (Bluemink, 2010, ¶2-3).

TransCanada also filed an alternative $20 – $26 billion proposal in which a pipeline would be built “to a liquefied natural-gas terminal in Valdez, where it could be exported by tankers (Bluemink, 2010, ¶2-3).”

Further, BP and Conoco Phillips are filing a 90-day open season for a competing North Slope pipeline project, called Denali (Bluemink, 2010, ¶6).

Analysis

AGIA — Governor Palin’s brainchild — is turning a 30-year-old pipe dream in to pipelines and encouraging good old-fashioned free market competition in the process. Governor Palin does not just write and speak about energy independence. She devoted a major portion of her term as Governor to conceiving and bringing AGIA to fruition. Under Governor Parnell’s leadership, Governor Palin’s mission and vision as it pertains to this project will be carried through.

Complete prior coverage of AGIA can be found at the US for Palin 2009 Master List of Governor Palin’s Accomplishments.

Sarah Palin: Relocating Terrorists’ Trial Doesn’t Solve Problem of Civilian Courts vs. Military Tribunals

Posted by Dr. Fay on January 29, 2010

This afternoon (Alaska time), Governor Palin tweeted:

Her tweet was preceded by this Facebook Note:

Stay Focused: Relocating Terrorists’ Trial Doesn’t Solve the Main Problem

Today at 6:57pm EST

People are celebrating the fact that the Obama Administration is considering relocating the terrorists’ trial from New York to another American city. Yet there’s still no talk of moving the trial out of our U.S. civilian courts to where it should take place – a military tribunal.

Now the administration is backtracking in order to fix its initially blundered decision to try these dangerous terrorists in New York City despite the great danger and cost to New Yorkers. This scenario is all too common in Washington. The tactic is to propose something so outrageous that the public will rise up and demand common sense, and then the White House “concedes” and changes its initial decision to give the impression of newfound reasonability and moderation. But the problem still isn’t solved! The trial location debate becomes a diversion so that we’ll take our eyes off the ball. The point missed is that our President still wants to give these terrorists U.S. constitutional protections in our civilian courts, allowing them to lawyer-up on our dime.

This tactic is in the same vein as another Washington game: creating the appearance of a “crisis” in order to push for a radical solution. (“The health care crisis must be fixed by government now or we’re all gonna die! The earth’s temperature is fluctuating; government must fix this crisis now or we’re all gonna die! Private businesses made poor decisions and bureaucrats claim they’re too big to fail, so government must fix this crisis now or we’re all gonna die!”) Politicians and lobbyists announce that there is a “crisis,” and never letting a good crisis go to waste, they propose a radical solution to fix it. The public listens intently, and in a sincere desire to help, an alternative to the politicians’ radical solution gets put forward. The politicians then “concede” and mellow out their radical solution. The public’s attention has been diverted to tinkering on the periphery, all the while ignoring the real problem at the heart of the “crisis” that started the whole debate.

The fact is our government has a choice as to where to try the terrorists. We don’t have to try them in our civilian courts. The peripheral debate regarding in which city to try these evil, dangerous haters-of-America is a diversion. Let’s get back to the heart of the matter: what choice will our government make – terrorist trials in civilian courts or military tribunals?

Note to Obama…Stay Focused!

Posted by Denise Spencer on January 29, 2010

Sarah Palin’s latest FaceBook post “Stay Focused: Relocating Terrorists’ Trial Doesn’t Solve the Main Problem” says so much about the status of our country. Please read her post and remember where you where on Sept. 11, 2001.

Sarah Palin Leads Latest Iowa 2012 Republican Presidential Polling

Posted by Gary P Jackson on January 29, 2010

The latest poll, courtesy of Republican Rankings shows Sarah Palin leading the field of possible candidates for the 2012 Republican presidential primary:

Sarah Palin…………31.41

Mike Huckabee…..30.03

Mitt Romney………26.34

Tim Pawlenty……….8.94

Newt Gingrich………2.05

John Thune…………..1.33

This comes on the heels of the just released Newsmax-Zogby poll that has Sarah leading all comers nationally for the Republican nomination.

In the accompanying Newsmax article, Dick Morris is quoted as saying the winner of the 2012 Republican nomination will be the next President of the United States. This is assuming, of course, that Barack Obama is the democrat/communist party nominee, which, with his performance so far, is not a sure bet by any means.

This polling shows a continuing trend. Sarah Palin is solidly cementing her position as front runner 2012. Her continued hard work and strong vision for America is what has more and more Americans looking toward her for leadership in these troubled times.

Of course, her writings, such as this don’t hurt a bit!

Sarah Palin: Letting You Know About Some “Better Solutions”

Posted by Dr. Fay on January 29, 2010

Complete transcript of Governor Palin’s Facebook Note:

Letting You Know About Some “Better Solutions”

Today at 4:15pm EST

On Wednesday night, the president asked us to “let him know” if we had any better ideas, and today John Boehner handed him a compilation of the policy alternatives that have been advanced over the past year. These are ideas that deserve to be considered to turn down the volume on the rhetoric and use common sense. Please take a look at Solutions.GOP.gov. You can read the compilation of policy alternatives, called “Better Solutions,” here.
