Exxon Seeks U.S. Waiver to Resume Russia Oil Venture
Exxon Mobil applied to Treasury for exemption to resume venture with Rosneft forged in 2012 by Rex Tillerson

by Jay Solomon and Bradley Olson, The Wall Street Journal  -  19 APR 2017
    WASHINGTON— Exxon Mobil Corp. has applied to the Treasury Department for a waiver from U.S. sanctions on Russia in a bid to resume its joint venture with state oil giant PAO Rosneft, according to people familiar with the matter.
    Exxon has been seeking U.S. permission to drill with Rosneft in several areas banned by sanctions and renewed a push for approval in March, shortly after its most recent chief executive, Rex Tillerson, became secretary of state on Feb. 1, according to one of these people. The company originally applied for a waiver to gain access to the Black Sea in July 2015 but its application wasn’t approved, the person said.
    The waiver request is likely to be closely scrutinized by members of Congress who are seeking to intensify sanctions on Russia in response to what the U.S. said was its use of cyberattacks to interfere with elections last year. Congress has also launched an investigation into whether there were ties between aides to Donald Trump and Russia’s government during the presidential campaign and the political transition....

According to a report, around 90 landowners in Nebraska are making a last stand against the Keystone XL pipeline. The group, who are mostly farmers and ranchers, plan to cast the project as a threat to farming and grazing lands, which is vital to Nebraska's economy. The group also contends that the pipeline will only provide temporary jobs that will vanish once construction ends. Media: WochIt Media.

Receding Glecier Causes Immense Canadian River to Vanish in Four Days
First ever observed case of ‘river piracy’ saw the Slims river disappear as intense glacier melt suddenly diverted its flow into another watercourse

The Guardian  -  17 APR 2017
    An immense river that flowed from one of Canada’s largest glaciers vanished over the course of four days last year, scientists have reported, in an unsettling illustration of how global warming dramatically changes the world’s geography.
    The abrupt and unexpected disappearance of the Slims river, which spanned up to 150 metres at its widest points, is the first observed case of “river piracy”, in which the flow of one river is suddenly diverted into another....
Opponents Vow to Stop Keystone XL Pipeline After Trump Grants Construction Permit
Interview with Sara Shor, campaign manager for U.S. Keep It In The Ground, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

BTOnline  -  19 APR 2017
    In November 2015, President Obama announced his decision to deny a permit to the TransCanada company, which needed it to build the Keystone XL pipeline across the Canadian border from the Alberta tar sands mining operations – to where it would connect to an already existing pipeline in Nebraska that had been earlier approved and built under Obama.
    The permit denial was considered a great people-powered victory for the climate movement, as it brought together environmentalists, property owners along the route, ranchers, farmers and indigenous communities in the upper Midwest. Then, as one of his first acts as president, Donald Trump resurrected the Keystone XL, promising “thousands” of jobs, partly through using pipes made of U.S. steel, despite the fact that the company had already purchased pipes mostly manufactured abroad....

Montana Tribes Fight Keystone XL Pipeline, Revived by Trump
by Hunter Pauli, Rolling Stone  -  19 APR 2017
    Members of the Sioux and Assiniboine tribes of the Fort Peck Indian Reservation in Northeast Montana are trying to negotiate with energy company TransCanada to reroute the Keystone XL pipeline downstream of their drinking water source after past oil drilling destroyed their reservation's aquifer.
    The Fort Peck reservation is bordered on the south by the Missouri River, with its tribal seat of Poplar and larger city of Wolf Point sitting just off the banks. A quarter-mile west of the reservation's southwest corner, where the Milk River meets the Missouri, is where TransCanada has acquired state and federal permits for Alberta tar sands oil to ford the river through the Keystone XL pipeline.
    Tribal members say the pipeline's proposed route is endangered by an old dam spillway and threatens their only source of fresh water from an intake plant 40 miles downstream to the east in Wolf Point, which state and local agencies didn't take into account when issuing permits....
Energy Transfer's Latest Pipeline Woe Is a 50,000-barrel Spill in Ohio
by Bloomberg, Crain's Cleveland Business  -  19 APR 2017
    Add almost 50,000 barrels of drilling fluids released into Ohio wetlands to the issues that have plagued Energy Transfer Partners LP’s $4.2 billion Rover natural gas pipeline.
    A regulatory filing disclosed Tuesday shows Energy Transfer’s Rover unit was notified by Ohio’s Environmental Protection Agency of violations after two releases of drilling fluids, both discovered last week. They occurred as part of an operation associated with the pipeline installation, the filing shows.
    It’s the latest challenge for the pipeline developer that, just last year, drew heat after demolishing a historic house near the line’s path in Ohio. Then it had to race against the clock to clear 3,000 acres of trees within weeks before a bat-roosting season kicked in this year. Gas traders have been betting on whether the pipeline will really go into service as planned in November because, once it does, the system will be capable of moving more than 3 billion cubic feet of gas from eastern U.S. shale formations to markets daily....
   
Dakota Access Connection

    Sierra Club said it’ll fight to stop all construction of the pipeline in Ohio. “The fact that we would have two spills in two separate counties -- it just proves how dangerous these pipelines and their construction are," said Jen Miller, director of the group’s Ohio chapter.
    Energy Transfer is the same company behind the controversial Dakota Access oil pipeline that’s now preparing for service. Thousands of people protested and camped out in North Dakota for months to fight that project’s construction.
    The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, which granted Energy Transfer a certificate for the Rover line in February, didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment....

Dakota Access Pipeline Announces May 14 As First Date of Service
Indianz.com  -  19 APR 2017
    The wealthy backers of the Dakota Access Pipeline announced May 14 as the anticipated first date of service, giving tribes more time to halt the controversial project.
    The firm completed the 1,172-mile pipeline after the Trump administration issued an easement to cross federally-managed land in North Dakota. Despite the obstacles, the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe is still hoping it can win the #NoDAPL battle.
    "We're going to try to stop the oil from flowing," Chairman Dave Archambault II said during an appearance at the University of North Dakota, The Fargo Forum reported. "We're going to build awareness about the investors, the lenders, the banks, the financial institutions who fund projects like this and who fund companies like Energy Transfer Partners."
    The tribe has asked a federal judge to set aside the Trump administration's approval of the pipeline, which comes within a half-mile of its reservation. A hearing hasn't been scheduled but action could come before the May 14 service date....

LA Times on Trump: Nothing Prepared Us for This 'Trainwreck'
by Mallory Shelbourne, The Hill  -  02 APR 2017
    The Los Angeles Times slammed President Trump in a new editorial, arguing that his "unpredictable" and "reckless" behavior is “the most worrisome” part of his presidency and that “nothing prepared us for the magnitude of this trainwreck.”
    Its editors on Sunday criticized Trump for his attempts to repeal and replace ObamaCare, for vowing to erect a border wall and for questioning the courts.
    “In a matter of weeks, President Trump has taken dozens of real-life steps that, if they are not reversed, will rip families apart, foul rivers and pollute the air, intensify the calamitous effects of climate change and profoundly weaken the system of American public education for all,” they wrote....
“I Have Seen This Happen”, Dan Rather Reveals Why Trump Is Now Doomed [Details]
Democratic Review  -  01 APR 2017
    Legendary anchor Dan Rather has been observing the actions of presidencies for decades, and he knows trouble brewing when he sees it.
    Rather has long been critical of President Donald Trump’s White House. Now, finally, Rather has seen fit to sound the alarm bell.
    Wrote Rather in a recent Facebook post, “1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is the most powerful address in the world. It can also at times feel like one of Earth’s loneliest islands. The nature of the modern American presidency ensures that the Commander in Chief must in many ways operate in a bubble. But when forces outside of that bubble start to swirl, and when they seem beyond the control of an administration, paranoia mounts and a presidency can quickly spiral out of control. I have seen this happen up close, covering both Lyndon Johnson amidst the Vietnam War and Richard Nixon falling under the weight of Watergate. But there has never been anything quite like what we’re witnessing with Donald Trump. Both Johnson and Nixon were seasoned politicians and they were surrounded by Washington insiders who knew how the game was played. Both men had pulled off remarkable achievements to their agendas. And there were long stretches of stability in their administrations.”...
ETP Seeks Dakota Access Expansion
Argus Media  -  31 MAR 2017
    Houston, 31 March (Argus) — Energy Transfer Partners is looking to expand its 470,000 b/d Dakota Access pipeline (DAPL) even before the controversial pipeline begins full service.
    Energy Transfer has launched a supplemental open season for incremental capacity on the line that will transport crude from the Bakken shale in North Dakota to Patoka, Illinois, for further delivery to the US Gulf coast. The company is considering boosting capacity on DAPL to as much as 570,000 b/d depending on shipper interest.
    The company is in the process of commissioning the pipeline and preparing to place it into service in the second quarter after completing a contested water crossing in North Dakota, according to a court filing earlier this week. The company said on 23 February that the line should be "fully line-packed and ready to go" prior to 1 June.
    The open season also includes the Energy Transfer Crude Oil pipeline which stretches from Patoka to Nederland, Texas. Shippers have the option to sign up for a local DAPL tariff or a joint tariff on the two systems which would provide a direct route from the Bakken to the Gulf coast.
    The open season notice did not specify a closing date.
    DAPL was delayed for months amid large protests led by the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and regulatory delays. Former President Barack Obama's administration ordered new environmental reviews of the $3.8bn project. But President Donald Trump moved to rescind the order and an easement was issued for the final crossing on 8 February.
    The Sioux Standing Rock tribe has vowed to continue a legal fight against the pipeline.  
Attorneys for Dallas Firm ETP's Dakota Access Pipeline Face Religious Argument from Tribes
Dallas News  -  31 MAR 2017
    BISMARCK, N.D. -- Attorneys for the developer of the Dakota Access pipeline are fighting an attempt by Sioux tribes to argue that oil under their water source potentially interferes with their religion, even as the company steadily fills the line with oil.
    The Standing Rock and Cheyenne River Sioux tribes sued last summer on other grounds, including that the pipeline threatened cultural sites and water supply, which they get from Lake Oahe, a reservoir on the Missouri River in North Dakota. Energy Transfer Partners this week asked a federal judge to reject an attempt by the tribes to amend their lawsuit in part to include the religion argument....
TrumpCare Dies, XL Flies and the Secret Winner Is…
by Greg Palast, Nation of Change  -  31 MAR 2017
    When RyanCare-TrumpCare finally ended up face-down in the swimming pool, triumphalist Democrats whooped and partied and congratulated themselves on defeating the Trump-Ryan monstrosity.
    But deep in their counting house, counting their gold, three brothers cackled with private jubilation.
    David and Charles Koch knew the day was theirs.
    Joining them in the celebration was Brother Billy, William Koch, who will share in their $21 billion windfall that the President arranged for them only hours before TrumpCare crashed – when Trump announced his State Department had formally approved the Keystone XL Pipeline.
Let’s start with that $21 billion.
    The XL Keystone Pipeline would take the world’s heaviest, filthiest crude from Canada’s tar sands, and snake with it all the way down to Texas.
    Now here’s a question I never hear from our sleep-walking media: Exactly why are we sending oil all the way across the United States to Texas. I mean, doesn’t Texas already have a little oil?...

Here’s the Data Republicans Just Allowed ISPs to Sell Without Your Consent
Privacy watchdogs blasted the vote as a brazen GOP giveaway to the broadband industry.

by Sam Gustin, Motherboard  -  28 MAR 2017
    Financial and medical information. Social Security numbers. Web browsing history. Mobile app usage. Even the content of your emails and online chats.
    These are among the types of private consumer information that House Republicans voted on Tuesday to allow your internet service provider (ISP) to sell to the highest bidder without your permission, prompting outrage from privacy watchdogs.
    The House action, which was rammed through by a vote of 215 - 205 on a largely partisan basis by the GOP majority, represents another nail in the coffin of landmark Federal Communications Commission consumer privacy rules that were passed in 2016. The rules, which were set to go into effect later this year, would have required broadband providers to obtain "opt-in" consent before using, sharing, or selling private consumer data.
    "Ignoring calls from thousands of their constituents, House Republicans just joined their colleagues in the Senate in violating internet users' privacy rights," Craig Aaron, CEO of DC-based public interest group Free Press Action Fund, said in a statement. "They voted to take away the privacy rights of hundreds of millions of Americans just so a few giant companies could pad their already considerable profits."...

Big Mountain Resident Famous for HPL Resistance Passes On
by Krista Allen, Navajo Times - 30 MAR 2017
    TUBA CITY -- Katherine Smith, a cultural educator, a relocation crusader and resistor from Big Mountain, Ariz., has died. She was 98 years old, according to records, but her family says she was more than 100 years old.
    Mary Katherine Smith, the daughter of Katherine Smith, said her mother passed away at 11:18 a.m. on March 29.
    Behind a fence holding a rifle outside her Hogan, wearing her traditional outfit, is an iconic photograph of Katherine Smith that shows her amid a territorial dispute between the Diné and the Kiis’áanii.
    This Diaspora is also the focus of “Broken Rainbow,” an Oscar-nominated documentary that she took part in.
    Katherine Smith was Tábąąhá, and born for Chíshí Dine’é. Her maternal grandfather was Tł’ízíłání and her paternal grandfather was Naakaii Dine’é.
    Katherine Smith often drew on Diné philosophy to explain her profound connection to her ancestors’ traditional land she called home, and played an indispensable role protecting it when the federal government removed thousands of Diné families from Hopi Partitioned Lands.
    In the mid-summer of 1979, a Bureau of Indian Affairs crew set out to fence her property in Big Mountain – Dziłntsaa in Diné Bizaad – only to find themselves staring into the muzzle of her .22 caliber rifle, according to history. She fired over their heads, and when they scattered, she began pulling apart the fence.
    Katherine Smith at that point in time was arrested on serious charges, only to receive a directed verdict of acquittal from a judge.
    “That was just a representation of what she stood for,” Mary Smith said in an interview with the Navajo Times on Wednesday night. “One of her last words … a couple of days ago was, ‘I never sold out. I never sold my land, I never left, I never took payment, and I never got a relocation house. I stayed on my land where I was born, and I feel like I won this battle.’”...

"In the River: A Protest Song for Standing Rock" by Raye Zaragoza
Raye Zaragoza, Facebook  -  SEPT 2016
    There is something especially beautiful and moving about the simple presentation of just a beautiful voice and a guitar. It is art in its purest form. It is pristine, honest, raw; and it is a soul-baring experience for the artist. It is the performing arts equivalent of standing naked before the world and saying, "Here I am. This is who I am, and this is what I have to offer the world. I share with you the gifts that Creator has seen fit to bestow upon me in hopes that you will get a blessing from this offering. Love me or hate me, but take the time to see and appreciate this glimpse into my heart."
    SENAA International supports and encourages all young Indigenous artists in all art forms as our way of showing the world that the Indigenous People of Turtle Island (the big Turtle Island) are among the most talented people on the planet, and that they choose to use their gifts to support their people and to bring attention to important indigenous issues.
    We are happy to introduce Raye Zaragoza in her video "In the River: A Protest Song" that she wrote and recorded in support of the efforts to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline that became the Standing Rock #NoDAPL movement.
    This is just one of the songs that will be on her coming debut album. This song will be on her debut album twice; once as a fully orchestrated version, and again with just Raye and her guitar.
    We ask that you recognize and support this talented young artist by purchasing one or more copies of her soon-to-be-released debut album. More can be learned about her first album on her Facebook page. Just click her name link in the header of this post to visit her page. While you're there, click "Follow" to follow her, and choose the "See First" option to be sure and get any updates regarding the release date for her debut album.

North Dakota Pipeline FORCED To Be Shut Down After LEAKING In The Mississippi River Just Like Standing Rock Protesters Warned
Alternative Media Syndicate  -  27 FEB 2017
    This is why water protectors continue to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline, despite freezing temperatures and winter storms.
    In case you missed it, “water protectors” have been camped out near Cannon Ball, North Dakota, since April in protest of the four-state Dakota Access pipeline (DAPL). The pipeline threatens to uproot burial ground, as well as contaminate the Missouri river. It’s because of this that activists have put their lives on the line.
    In recent months, protestors of the DAPL have been maced, tased, shot with rubber bullets, beaten with batons, and even hosed down in freezing temperatures with water cannons. Now, even when it’s below 0 degrees F and snowstorms threaten to take lives, protestors – along with thousands of veterans – remain on the plains to prevent Energy Transfer Partners from continuing the pipeline’s construction....  
As Police Evict Water Protectors, Tribes Vow to Continue the Fight
“This isn’t the end by any means. This is the spark. The whole world is waking up now.”

by Jenni Monet, Yes! Magazine  -  24 FEB 2017
    On Thursday, as North Dakota police moved in with a fleet of bulldozers, Humvees, and armored MRAP vehicles, Gov. Doug Burgum signed into law four bills that would bring harsher punishment for protest-related activity in the state. The bills, his press statement said, were meant to protect landowners’ rights. But for the 46 people arrested that day, their stand was about defending historic treaty territory.
    “We’ve always been around this river, and that’s why we’re here to protect this river,” said Harold Frazier, chairman of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, the sister nation to Standing Rock. “That river brings life to the people.”
    Frazier has become a vocal supporter in the ongoing yet shifting movement to stop the Dakota Access pipeline. Despite Thursday’s razing of the main demonstration camp, Oceti Sakowin, he and dozens of water protectors, or protesters, have vowed to continue the fight to guard the Missouri River from a potential oil spill—if and when the pipeline is completed....

A Word About Brenda Norrell and Censored News
Al Swilling, SENAA International - 14 FEB 2015
   For those wondering why the vast majority of shared posts on SENAA International's Web site and Facebook page are from Brenda Norrell's Censored News, it's very simple—and very complex. For many years, Brenda Norrell was a major journalist for (forgive me, Brenda) Indian Country Today (ICT) until they censored Brenda's articles and terminated her without cause. After leaving Indian Country Today, Brenda created the appropriately named Censored News.
   While at ICT, Brenda was a voice for the Dineh (Navajo) people at Black Mesa, Arizona, where bed partners  Peabody  Coal  and  the  BIA  were trying to forcibly remove Dineh residents from their ancestral homes in order to strip mine the land of its coal. That greed took the form of a contrived, fictional "land dispute" between Dineh' and Hopi....

Worldwide Prayer Gatherings Will Resume Weekly

What Is a Worldwide Prayer Gathering?
   Though the specific details may vary from one support group to another, and from one geographical location to another, the essential concept remains the same.

A Worldwide Prayer Gathering is not so much a physical gathering into one physical location as it is the spiritual gathering of individuals and groups from around the world who are of one mind and one accord into one spiritual place for a common purpose, which is to ask for the Creator's help to bring about the circumstances that will accomplish our common goal according to His promise.

LSO MANAGEMENT: What They Are
and What to Do About Them

SENAA International  -  16 FEB 2010
  
Introduction
  
The computing public is becoming increasingly aware of the existence of Local Shared Objects (LSOs), also called "Flash cookies" or "Persistent Identification Elements" (PIEs), the dangers they pose, and the unethical ways that they are placed on our machines. LSOs are the busybodies of  the   Internet,   sticking  their  noses  in   your   personal business  at every opportunity  without  your  knowledge  or consent; and like most busybodies, they're being found out.
   With growing public awareness of LSOs comes a growing demand for effective, real time control of them. Most LSO management solutions offer management or deletion of LSOs after potentially malicious ones have had time to do their damage. Stand-alone LSO management utilities do not offer real time protection, either. This tutorial provides real-time management of LSOs....

During the action on November 20 at the Backwater bridge, she was intentionally shot in the eye with a tear gas canister from 6 feet away. It was aimed directly at her face by a Morton County officer. She was seen at Bismarck Sanford hospital and released because she had no insurance. She has a detached retina and needs surgery to ensure her vision. She is now seeking medical attention in Fargo. Donations will be used for the cost of the 2 ER visits, surgery, medications, and recovery.

08 December 2016 Worldwide Prayer Gathering Special Prayer

BEGINS: 03:30, 08 DEC 2016
ENDS: When the Judge's Decision Has Been Rendered
LOCATION: Pray from wherever you are. Your prayers will join others.

    SENAA International will be hosting a second Worldwide Prayer Gathering of the month, from 08 December through 09 December 2016 to pray that on Friday, 09 December 2016, the judge will uphold the Army Corps of Engineers' denial of the easement to drill beneath Lake Oahe and the Missouri River; and to pray for protection for those remaining at the Water Protectors camps at Standing Rock, as they brave brutal North Dakota winter conditions
    In addition to prayers for protection for the Water Protectors and Veterans, we ask that you continue your prayers for Vanessa "SiouxZ" Dundon, who sustained serious injury to her eye after being struck in the eye by a teargas canister fired from close range; and for Sophia Wilansky, who faces multiple surgeries after her forearm was almost severed by a concussion grenade thrown at her by a Morton County Sheriff's Deputy or one of the department's hired mercenaries. They are both in need of and deserve our prayers.
    We ask for everyone to lend their spiritual energy to this 2-day prayer vigil.
    One voice singing in an auditorium is sweet to hear, but low in volume. A hundred voices singing in harmony is beautiful and powerful enough to shake the rafters and move the soul.
    Please join us and add your voice to the choir.
    Wado!
