Well Boulder Nebraska fans, we are back!!! It seems Jane Flemming Kleeb was instrumental in taking down our page on Facebook. How do we know this? Well this is what she posted on her Facebook page, "Boulder Nebraska pages and profiles have all be taken down because they were FAKE...mess with the bull, you get the horns". Jane also admitted that she was the one that filed a complaint with Facebook about our group. I thought us liberals were the ones that defended free speech!!! No readers, Jane is not liberal, progressive or about helping Nebraskans, she is all about getting her name out and getting paid. From one cause to another and one paycheck to another she has been wreaking havoc on the Democratic Party and the issues we care about. Were not going anywhere Jane so "Put that in your pipeline and smoke it"!!!!
Ok so on with the Post. It seems Jane and the Bold Nebraska gang is behind killing to kill a new oil pipeline from being built in our state. We at Boulder Nebraska are not big fans of fossil fuel but we are not naive to think that our cars are all going to be electric overnight either. What concerns us is this frantic pitch Bold Nebraska is taking to kill the pipeline. Well we at Boulder Nebraska say follow the money. Many of these Astroturfing groups are formed through questionable funding sources with shadowy corporate ties. Bold Nebraska doesn't do anything for free so it will be interesting to see who gives to the "Bold Nebraska" cause.
Also, we have noted they are doing a little web broadcast tonight on the safety of this proposed pipeline and claim to have a "panel of experts" to answer questions. So who is this panel of experts? Well here are the names:
Paul Blackburn, Plains Justice
Marty Cobenais, Indigenous Environmental Network
Duane Hovorka, Nebraska Wildlife Federation
Ernie Fellows, Nebraska Landowners for Fairness
Ken Winston, Nebraska Sierra Club
Jane Kleeb, Bold Nebraska
I don't see any metallurgists, oil experts, or specialist that know anything about pipelines on this list. I do see one Jane Flemming Kleeb that Studied at Stetson University in areas of Religious Studies, Leadership Studies and the all important Women and Gender studies. Her grad school resume is no different either. So tell me readers how can she be an expert on oil pipeline safety? The answer is that she can't and this is how our cause is hurt by having so called experts create panic when there is nothing to fear. If this pipeline is dangerous then I want the facts from a PhD or some pipeline expert and not some person that just got done working for the SEIU. Nebraskans deserve better.
