      Activists protest against the Keystone XL pipeline in front of the US Capitol in Washington 22 April 2014. There has been an uptick in civil disobedience and direct actions challenging fossil fuel infrastructure projects.

      Law enforcement groups, including the FBI, have been monitoring opponents of a natural gas infrastructure project in Oregon and circulated intelligence to an email list that included a Republican-aligned anti-environmental PR operative, emails obtained by the Guardian show.

      The South Western Oregon Joint Task Force (SWOJTF) and its members were monitoring opponents of the Jordan Cove energy project, a proposal by the Canadian energy company Pembina to build the first-ever liquefied natural gas terminal on the US west coast, as well as a new 232-mile pipeline that would carry fracked natural gas to the port of Coos Bay.

      The Trump administration has named Jordan Cove as one of its highest-priority infrastructure projects. Jordan Cove opponents have raised concernsabout the project’s significant environmental impacts, impacts on public lands, indigenous rights and climate change.

      NO DOUBT! See how things done with our money in our name waste all that money? They are infiltrators and they are Vermin. They would be better at selling girl scout cookies. At least we have the choice of being fed a tasty treat when we get ripped off with THAT!

      Hell, no... I'm not giving up...
