    Conservative Land Owners Fight Texas Pipeline


    TYT Politics Reporter Jordan Chariton reported from a Texas landowner’s ranch–one of many landowners whose private land has been seized by the government via eminent domain for the Trans-Pecos Pipeline, going from Texas into Mexico.

    2. The key here is whether the pipeline qualifies as a public utility if the

    Pipeline is going to Mexico.  I would say no if Jordan is right.  Could be the case.

    3. It is all about making money for just a few billionaires

    already in the oil business.

    The oil will be sent to Mexico to be mixed with Mexico’s sulfur laden crude, then refined and exported from the coasts.

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Team made this possible by helping the Extreme Right Mexican Billionaire Families seize the nationalized Mexican oil industry about 2011.  Standard, Exon and other foreign fossil companies were kicked out of Mexico after the Revolution of 1910. It took the Mexican people until about 1938 to get the industry completely away from the control of the Mexican Right Wing Elitists.

    Only a few wealthy Mexicans and Americans will profit wildly from the theft of land and resources on both sides of the border.
