How do Warren Buffett and Sen. Ben Nelson benefit from the White House killing the Keystone pipeline?

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Glenn spent a good portion of his show Tuesday night on GBTV to address Warren Buffett’s connections to TransCanada’s Keystone XL oil pipeline. Does the Oracle from Omaha have an interest in seeing the project killed? Glenn’s research team compiled quite a bit of evidence that could certainly lead one to reach that conclusion.

Back in January, the State Department advised the President to reject the proposal to extend the Keystone XL pipeline because it was not in the “national interest” of the country at this time. But why would Obama choose to not support this project when he has backed so many green energy projects, even ones that have failed like Solyndra?

According to Forbes, the pipeline would have been a huge job creator:

According to TransCanada, the company planning to build the pipeline, Keystone XL would alleviate transportation bottlenecks and improve capacity in a market where oil imports total 10 to 11 million daily barrels. The company claims it would put 13,000 people to work building the pipeline and 118,000 spin-off jobs “through increased business for local goods and service providers.”

Building the Keystone extension would provide additional transportation capacity at the crucially important city of Cushing, Oklahoma. The pricing point for NYMEX spot and future WTI contracts, which determine the price of crude oil, Cushing has faced severe bottlenecks as its capacity to transport crude oil to the refinery-rich Gulf Coast has been limited.

As Glenn pointed out, the oil that would have come in the pipeline would still be coming to the United States regardless, only now it would be through trains. And who owns the trains? Warren Buffett.

“The question is not about the environment or government studies,” Glenn said.

According to research done by GBTV and The Blaze, “Warren Buffett’s Burlington Northern Santa Fe LLC railroad — a unit of Buffett’s Omaha, Nebraska based Berkshire Hathaway — would be among those poised to reap sizable gains by the administration’s decision to reject TransCanada’s oil pipeline permit. Berkshire Hathaway purchased a 22% (or, $34 billion share) of the 32,000 mile line in 2009, shortly after Obama was elected.”

“Whatever people bring to us, we’re ready to haul,” said Burlington Northern spokesperson Krista York-Wooley.

Glenn said that Warren Buffet has vehemently denied ever speaking to The President about the Keystone Pipeline project despite the fact that he owned a company that would benefit from it’s cancellation.

“This pipeline should have passed. Because it’s safe, it’s a job creator, helps America get cheap oil and gets you lower gas prices,” Glenn said.

“He’s got to be the luckiest guy ever because he benefits from this.”

How did Buffett get so lucky? It had something to do with Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson.

WATCH Glenn explain below:

Buffett and Nelson go way back. In 2010 while the country was undergoing an overhaul of it’s financial regulations, Nelson worked hard to push legislation that would benefit Warren Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway. As of 2010, Nelson owned up to $6 million in stock in Berkshire Hathaway.

What are some of the other connections?

The Blaze and GBTV reported:

GBTV uncovered a startling connection between Berkshire Hathaway’s home-state and that state’s Senator Ben Nelson, who voted against the Keystone XL and lobbied that it be re-routed to avoid Nebraska. Ironically, the Senator’s attempts to thwart the pipeline were done while he himself maintained his state would heartily welcome the jobs created from the Keystone project. While Nelson’s position then seems counterintuitive, add to it the fact that he is heavily invested in Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway.

GBTV revealed that from 2007 to 2012 Nelson contributed $27,000 to the company itself and according to a recent financial disclosure statement from 2008, he owned between $1.5 and $6 million of the company’s stock – his largest investment in any one company to date.

The pendulum seems to swing both ways, however. Buffett’s Burlington Northern Santa Fe PAC in turn contributed $5,000 to Senator Nelson’s Nebraska Leadership PAC and Berkshire Hathaway employees have reportedly long supported the senator, contributing at least $75,550 to the Nebraska Democrat over the course of his political career according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

Not coincidentally, Senator Nelson penned an op-ed column on March 5, 2012 entitled “Behind Those High Gas Prices.” As you can imagine, the senator was quick to tell Nebraskans that the spike “has nothing to do with the Keystone Pipeline” and also “isn’t a result of domestic oil production.”

Tying it all back to the Pipeline, Glenn concluded that it’s clear that both Nelson and Buffett have quite a bit to gain financially if Buffett’s trains were used to transport the oil instead of the pipeline.

“The political favors, the green house gas emissions, oil transported on choo-choo trains riding off into the smog-ridden sunset,” Glenn said.

And who loses? You.

“You’re not on the gravy train,” Glenn told the audience. “You’re in your car and most likely standing at the gas station pumping in gas that will be way more expensive.”

*Note – Warren Buffett announced he had non life threatening stage one prostate cancer after Glenn went on the air for this segment which is why the breaking news was not addressed during the show.

    The administration of Mr Obama will go down as the worst, foulest, most corrupt to date in the history of the nation. I cannot wait until the criminal trials against ALL of them commence after they are out of office.

    • Anonymous

      Tho investigation and prosecution of Obama for ineligibility for POTUS, and other high crimes should be instigated, I wouldn’t hold my breath. Politicians mostly don’t get prosecuted for their crimes of corruption unless it is so blatant that it can’t be ignored. Why? Simple, every politician knows they could be next and so few of them are anxious to throw stones at their partners in crime and corruption.
      What it will take, is for the people to scream loud and clear to root out the criminal wrongdoing that is rampant not only in the bureacrasies but in the congress and the oval office as well. But as they say, “money talks, bull s*** walks”!

      • snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

        Jimmy – unfortunatly you are right on that. They will try to hold onto power so as to keep safe in the ‘old congress club and network.’ Especially Reid and Pelsoi.

        What will it take?

        Another voting shockwave as in 2010 to smash and shatter their grip on power once and for all – all of those of the old guard who are corrupt in any way…and for the American people to hold the electorates feet to the fire at all times.

       i would like to think that could happen, and really hope it does! get out and vote, people! and lots of prayers for this country and its righteous leaders would be great too.

      • snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

        Carol – the enraged people of the nation showed in 2010 that the old ways have shifted; the shock of that election is still being felt, and in 2012 we the people need to give them all another one – and a complete one as we can.

        Someone on the radio pointed out today that this election is the best opportunity in generations for the American people to make changes happen in THEIR interest; so we need to do our part, and afterwards make sure the electorate is held to account.

        For too long the government has assumed it had all the power, and we have seen the corruption coming daily from them.

        Now its time to remind them, the people outnumber them some 500k:1

        For too long we have failed in remembering how to dream and dance as a people; now its time and past time for us to take it back and preserve it once and for all.

        God has given us this opportunity; if we waste it then the dissolution of the country will be deserved.

    This isn’t surprising. Greed and power combining and multiplying through intrigue and deceit isn’t anything new. But in this country, we have a history of rising up to place limits on this kind of behavior, backed by the greatest document on government ever written – the U.S. Constitution.

    We need to speak up and make our elected representatives, including our president, listen. And come November 2012, we need to VOTE THEM ALL OUT. Remove their hands from the levers of official corruption. Make them find other employment. Maybe a few of our politicians will really start to listen then.

    Hopefully those trains will not be solar?

    I remember when Buffet announced that Berkshire Hathaway was buying Burlington Northern.  I thought, “Huh?  A railroad?  Why?  Railroads have been struggling for decades.”  Now it makes sense with the Keystone Pipeline XL cancellation.  There must have been collusion because no one is that lucky.

      Is it just me or does it seem that our congress keeps tabs on certain areas of the economy and receive insider information because of it.  It seems that they know about projects years before they ever start so they have time to invest into them, legislate laws that allow the projects to move forward, and make alliances with other politicians to ensure the laws are passed.
      Yet we all just sit here and let them do it while we fight over the peanuts they give to us because “they just love us so much and want to take care of us.”  Pathetic…  Our nation is lost…

    It is always entertaining to listen to glenn beck put together his conspiracy theories and lies…
    Although, there are a few questions and facts that glenn has once again chosen to ignore…
    1.  FACT: glenn beck bitches and cries continuously about Federal spending, including super structure projects but he supports an oil pipeline?!  Don’t be fooled America.  glenn beck is a pawn for big oil and brings up this topic to pucker up for more of their cash!!!
    2.  FACT: Currently, the United States is pumping more oil within its borders (under President Obama) than it did in Bush Jr.’s last years!!!
    3.  Fact: blenn beck talks about the temporary employment that building the pipeline would bring.  Of course I would like to see thousands of Americans gain employment on this project, but why would glenn?  In the past, glenn has openly criticized the jobs created by the Federal government and has focus dozens of rants with lies about FDR!!!  This pipeline is exactly the same as FDR’s projects and Federal spending!!!
    4.  Fact: glenn beck never talks about the permanent jobs held by truckers and rail workers that will be lost after their oil transportation is no longer needed!!!  Why?  Because glenn beck doesn’t mind thousands of Americans losing these jobs, or temporary workers being terminated after the pipeline construction because he does not care about Americans!!!

      Flagged for stupidity and lies. Troll spammer.

      1. We need the oil pipeline you moron. We need the oil and the jobs.

      2. The oil being pumped is from private land because Obama has closed down all the public oil lands. The oil is being produced in spite of Obama’s attempt to shut down the industry.

      You’re an idiot.

      3. The jobs would be as much as 50 thousand in the oil industry. You’re an idiot.

      4. When are the Truckers and rail workers not going to be needed? They run on the oil that you hate so much.

      You’re an idiot spewing hate and leftist talking points.

    Glenn, why do you emphasize $4 per gallon as being horrific?  Yes, this is a large increase for American culture and preferred living standards.  But still many countries around the world are paying $7-9 per gallon.  It seems $4 dollars per gallon is awaking us to the realities of most other countries around the world.  Our preferred living standards need to adjust and realize that we need to be more responsible in how we use the non-renewable resources.  It is just hard for me to get emotionally fired up about the idea of $4 per gallon to be so bad, especially lots of countries would only dream about such low prices.  

    • Anonymous

      Good point.  Yes in other countries gas is way more expensive BUT here in The USA gas (and other energy) prices have always been cheap and that is what made us the greatest country on Earth.  That’s what caused the Industrial revolution that took us out of the dark ages, that’s what put us on the moon, we have always had low gas prices and that is what our economy was built around.  Now that prices are $4 and rising it’s throwing off our economy and causing people to rely on the government to help them and that is very bad.

      You don’t get it; it’s not just the cost at the pump.  $4/gallon gas results in diesel being more expensive.  Results?  Products trucks deliver (and that’s everything) cost more in the store.  Have you noticed food, clothing, appliances, etc. prices going up?  They and gas will shoot through the roof in the next year.

      Well, Silas, the $4 price of gas in itself isn’t the problem.  It effects a lot of what the US

      consumer buys.  How does the food supply reach the stores?   Some by rail, but also a

      lot come by trucks, as does other items used in households.   If you do the grocery

      shopping, you may have noticed the increase of many staples.

    I seriously doubt Buffett bought BNSF just to haul a dozen trains of oil every day.  It does add to the bottom line, however, and couldn’t hurt.  He bought BNSF because it was gushing cash and a well-run organization.  Besides, Warren is a railfan, he just likes trains.  The Canadian railroads, particularly CN with it’s access to the Gulf, stand to gain more since they are at the source of the Canadian oil being shipped.  However, has anyone consider the coal angle.  BNSF is one of 2 Powder River coal haulers, the other being UP.  A lot of money is being made hauling coal out of that area.  With the EPA coming down hard on coal-fired electric plants, who stands to gain?  Well, that would be UP and BNSF/Buffett because Powder River coal is low in sulphur and plants using it would have an easier time of getting past the new EPA regulations.

    Thanks Glenn for alerting us to another crony connection between Mr. Obama & his friends. It’s not surprising to know that killing the Keystone pipeline lines the pockets of his friend, Warren Buffet, allowing his railroads to profit by hauling the oil.  Why is it not surprising to find out that the congressman who sold out to support Obamacare, Ben Nelson, is also profiting by his involvement in Bufett’s company. I, for one, know that conspiracies have existed since the world began.  Just because people who realize that are ridiculed doesn’t change that. How many times in history have those in power been overthrown by those conspiring for power & wealth? So what makes it unlikely now that those in power conspire?

    why did beck dismiss the ‘birthers’ and continue to ignore the truth of the fraud of obama’s EVERY PERSONAL RECORD?  partly because his shallow thinking mind can’t comprehend the evil lucifarian force and people behind the NWO crew. and partly because beck can’t turn his back on the ‘church/cult’ that he thinks brought him to YESHUA = so that same force now has mitt romney as our puppet de jur —- and helping to guide beck with book deals, radio millions and money for this network.
