I hope Buffett paid Obama well for services rendered.
But that swamp was just drained.
From the Associated Press:
There are hundreds more jobs than takers in the heart of North Dakota's oil patch. Finding a hotel room, parking space or table at a restaurant is no longer easy.
More than two years after the state's unprecedented oil bonanza fizzled to a lull, North Dakota - the nation's No. 2 oil producer behind Texas -- is experiencing a sort of boomlet that has pushed daily production back above 1 million barrels daily.
"There is a long-term optimism that was not here just a year ago," said Williston Republican Sen. Brad Bekkedahl, whose western North Dakota district is in the epicenter of the state's oil-producing region.
Industry officials and others say the uptick comes from a bump in crude prices, regulatory certainty with the more drill-friendly Trump administration, better technology, and the prospect of nearly half of the state's crude coursing through the disputed Dakota Access Pipeline, which could open markets abroad where top prices are typically fetched.Buffett is kissing off $3 million a day -- $1 billion a year.
From the story:
The $3.8 billion pipeline -- expected to be fully operating next month -- opens up the possibility for North Dakota oil to be sold on the world market, where industry officials say it could earn several dollars more per barrel. Shippers also can save about $3 per barrel moving the oil by pipeline rather than using the mile-long trains that have carried North Dakota crude to the Gulf Coast since 2008, industry officials say.Yep. Buffett pocketed $3 a barrel from transporting 1 million barrels of oil a day on his railroad.
Obama did not care about the environment or the danger of mile-long trains carrying crude oil. Obama was TCB -- taking care of Buffett.
Of course, the Associated Press ignored all this in a lengthy article that was meant to impress people with its research while it ignored this key fact of why the pipeline was not built under Obama.
But this is a happy ending for North Dakota which after eight years of Marxist cruelty in Washington will soon be free from Warren Buffett's monopoly.
On November 8, 2016, the American people said, "Trump the Establishment!"
Now read the book that explains how and why the press missed this historic the election.

And then read the original, "Trump the Press," which chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.
