Analyst touts Alberta royalty holiday as temporary Canadian crude price crutch

first_imgCALGARY – Steep oil price discounts costing Alberta producers and the provincial government millions of dollars each day in lost revenue could be eased if the industry is given a temporary royalty holiday in return for producing less, according to a bank analyst.In a report Monday, Royal Bank analyst Greg Pardy said Alberta oil is selling for multi-year discounts to U.S. benchmark prices for two reasons — there’s not enough export pipeline space and barrels can’t go into storage in Alberta because there’s no room left.The traditional solution is to put the stranded oil in railroad cars, but that capacity is also full and growing too slowly to make a difference, he said.“In the context of an estimated net supply imbalance of 160,000 to 185,000 barrels per day, we estimate that a five per cent royalty holiday on Alberta’s 3.8 million barrels per day (current estimate) of oil production could take about 190,000 bpd of oil … temporarily off the market,” he said in the report.“Over the course of 3.5 months, this game plan could drain Western Canada storage levels by approximately 4.8 million to 7.4 million barrels, or 16 to 25 per cent of estimated operable storage, opening the door to spread normalization.”The National Energy Board reported exports by rail rose to a record 229,544 bpd in August, up more than 11 per cent from 206,624 bpd in July and 91 per cent from just under 120,000 bpd in August 2017. RBC estimates fourth-quarter rail exports will be about 250,000 bpd.Last week, Alberta Premier Rachel Notley called on Ottawa to work to increase capacity for oil on rail as a “short- to medium-term” solution to improve market access, arguing the low prices are hurting governments as well as producers.But Pardy argued Alberta has the power on its own to improve crude oil prices, noting that the benefit of intervening in the market to drain storage from its capacity of about 30 million barrels would be paid back when prices recover and its royalties are restored.“While we applaud Alberta Premier Rachel Notley’s efforts to accelerate crude-by-rail, there may also be a near-term bridge,” he said.“As a temporary measure, the royalty holiday could be called upon, as needed, until other solutions fall into place, namely incremental crude-by-rail loadings, and Enbridge’s 375,000 bpd Line 3 replacement (pipeline expected to start up in late 2019).”In its Aug. 31 budget update, Alberta estimated it would have oil royalties of $3.6 billion this year — giving them up for three months could cost about $900 million.Alberta Energy Minister Marg McCuaig-Boyd threw cold water on the RBC suggestion.“We’ve been considering a number of other options for the (price) differential but I can absolutely say this is not one of them that is suggested by the RBC report,” she told reporters.“These are resources owned by Alberta, we need to keep the value here.”Canada’s railroads have been reluctant to add locomotives and crews to move oil cars unless producers sign long-term contracts because they fear those customers will disappear as soon as pipeline capacity, considered to be cheaper, is available.Oilsands producer Cenovus Energy Inc. announced recently it had signed long-term deals to move 100,000 bpd of its own heavy crude oil on Canadian railways to the U.S. Gulf Coast to be refined.The widening differentials between Canadian oil prices and U.S. benchmark West Texas Intermediate have also been linked to a reduction in demand as maintenance shutdowns take some refineries off line in the U.S. Midwest (also called PADD II), but observers have lately been discounting that factor.In a note Monday, analysts with Tudor Pickering Holt & Co. said it doesn’t appear that the shutdowns have had much effect on Canadian oil shipments.“Digging into the data suggests that crude flows into PADD II increased over the month of October as offline refineries opted to take the cheap barrels and jam them into storage,” the report said.In his report, Pardy points out that oilsands producers actually pay their Alberta royalties based on a WTI price framework, despite a discount that means many are receiving less for their oil than what it cost to produce it.Follow @HealingSlowly on Twitter.— With a file from Dean Bennett in Edmonton.Companies in this story: (TSX:CVE, TSX:ENB)last_img read more

BC to argue for injunction on Albertas turn off the taps law

first_imgThe Federal Court of Appeal quashed the approval months later, demanding more consultation with First Nations and a study into the pipeline’s potential impact on marine wildlife.The project was approved for a second time by the federal cabinet last week. The legislation was passed, but never used, by Alberta’s former NDP government as a way to put pressure on the province’s western neighbour to drop its fight against the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.The new United Conservative government in Alberta proclaimed it into force shortly after Premier Jason Kenney was sworn in.He has said he doesn’t intend to use the turn-off-the-taps law right now, but he will if B.C. throws up roadblocks to the pipeline.The project, first approved in 2016, would triple the amount of oil flowing from the oilsands to B.C.’s Lower Mainland and from there to lucrative new markets across the Pacific.The project, first approved in 2016, would triple the amount of oil that flows from Edmonton to B.C.’s lower mainland, enabling access to new markets across the Pacific.The federal government bought the existing pipeline last year for $4.5 billion after its original builder, Texas-based Kinder Morgan, threatened to walk away from its expansion because of B.C.’s resistance. CALGARY, A.B. – British Columbia’s request for an injunction against Alberta’s so-called turn-off-the-taps law is to be heard in a Calgary courtroom today.The legislation allows Alberta to crimp energy shipments to B.C. if it stands in the way of a major pipeline expansion to the west coast.B.C. filed a statement of claim in Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench last month calling the law unconstitutional.last_img read more

Special category status to pervade Arunachal and other NE states Rahul

first_imgItanagar: Congress chief Rahul Gandhi said Tuesday his party will restore the special category status to Arunachal Pradesh and other states in the northeast if elected to power. There are some states in the country which require special status because of their “unique problems and difficulties” such as connectivity, terrain, infrastructure, Gandhi said at an election rally here. During the Congress rule at the Centre, he said, Arunachal Pradesh and other NE states used to enjoy special category status.

Pipeline rupture sends 40000 litres of oil into Alberta creek

DRAYTON VALLEY, Alta. — The Alberta Energy Regulator says a pipeline has spilled 40,000 litres of crude oil into a creek.The regulator says on its website that the incident happened Aug. 15 on a Bonterra Energy Corp. line 14 kilometres south of Drayton Valley, Alta.It says the line was shut in and depressurized, and that containment booms were installed.The AER says no impacts to wildlife were reported.Calgary-based Bonterra says in a news release that it began investigating a problem with the pipeline at 8 a.m. Thursday, and at 1 p.m. it discovered a rupture that was leaking into Washout Creek.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.It says it is removing the oil with booms and vacuums, and is mitigating the effect on wildlife by setting up barriers as well as visual deterrents that include having people present.Washout Creek flows into the North Saskatchewan River, which is the source of Edmonton’s water supply, and Bonterra says it has placed additional booms where the creek meets the river as an extra precaution.The company says cleanup and recovery is expected to continue for the next three weeks. read more

Historic Royal Palaces staff strike in pensions dispute

first_imgStaff, including Beefeaters, who work at Historic Royal Palaces (HRP) and who are members of the GMB trade union, are conducting strike action today (Tuesday 22 January 2019) in a dispute over pensions.GMB members will be undertaking the industrial action at both the Tower of London and Hampton Court Palace sites between 9am and 4pm.The dispute regards HRP deciding to close its final salary pension scheme and replace it with an alternative pension arrangement. Last week, GMB members working at HRP were presented with an improved offer, but this was deemed unsuitable by members who felt that it was not comparable to the scheme that is closing.So far, discussions between HRP and GMB have ended without an agreement.In December 2018, GMB members based at the Tower of London and Hampton Court Palace voted 91% in favour of strike action, based on an 88% turnout.Michael Ainsley, regional organiser at GMB, said: “Our members are disappointed to have not reached any agreement with HRP, but [its] offer was simply not good enough.“Our members’ disappointment turned to fury however when they were made aware that HRP had commissioned several elaborate and very expensive cakes from [chocolate shop] Choccywoccydoodah, to launch a new campaign.“The crass insensitivity shown by HRP in squandering money in this way while telling employees that their pensions are [not] sustainable is incredible. Perhaps HRP consider it better to let them eat cake in their retirement instead of them being able to buy groceries or pay rent and [utility] bills.”John Barnes, chief executive officer at Historic Royal Palaces, added: “A very small group of staff, six at the Tower of London, 10 at Hampton Court Palace, are striking today over the closure of our defined benefit [(DB)] pension scheme. Due to the small number of people involved, the strike will have no impact on the day to day running of our sites, and we will be remaining open throughout.“The strike follows a negotiation with the trade unions in January, where we improved upon our already generous offer to scheme members. They will receive substantial compensation and transition arrangements and the benefits they have already accrued will be fully protected.  Disappointingly, our improved offer was not accepted by the trade unions.“The decision to resume the strike action will not change our decision to close the scheme in April 2019. It is financially unsustainable, and closing it will enable us to increase employer contributions to pensions for everyone by 2%; an offer that is fundamentally fairer to our entire workforce.”last_img read more

Penny Schwinn — that decision maker and the agency’s deputy commissioner of academics — did not disclose that she had received professional development training from the person who ultimately became a subcontractor on the project.Schwinn argued she “was not privy to or involved in SPEDx’s subcontracting decision,” the audit said.

The Manic World of Social Media and Breast Cancer Gratitude and Grief

first_imgThe Journey BeginsUpon my advanced-stage cancer diagnosis in 2004, after never missing an annual mammography appointment, I asked my team of doctors as to why my 11 years of normal mammograms did not find my cancer. I was stunned by each of their responses that my dense breast tissue, which I was unaware of, masked my cancer for years and that mammograms are limited in finding cancers in dense breasts. The nonchalant responses from my healthcare team and their refusal to disclose this “dense” information to their patients as part of their mammography report led me to travel the bumpy and unpaved road of patient advocacy and breast health. A decade of research existed at the time of my diagnosis on the limitations of mammograms in women with dense breast tissue, and more than two decades of research on the causal risk of dense breast tissue. My desire was to expose the secret of dense breast tissue, taking this information from the scientific journals to the examining room.Social media has brought together a community of breast health advocates, breast cancer survivors and healthcare providers to communicate about the many aspects of breast cancer such as prevention, risks, screening, treatments and promising research for a cure. Open 24 hours, within seconds of breast cancer survivors’ posts about side effects from treatment, decisions about surgery and their most intimate anxieties and fears, the cheerleading team of survivors, caregivers and healthcare providers intervene. My advocacy work and our immense reach through social media give me the opportunity to console a sister or brother, to offer hope to them and their families as they “live” with a breast cancer diagnosis.In the United States, breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in women and the leading cause of premature mortality. Whether from my local community support group or through the infinite bond of social media, I have experienced much gratitude hanging out with my breast cancer friends. Not thankful for our diagnosis, but because of the fragility of cancer, we have a heightened gratitude for each day. Too many of us can check all the boxes for the prevention measures we adhered to — no smoking, maintaining a healthy weight and diet, being physically active and never missing our yearly mammography screening. Consequently, I experience grief all too often. My global connections with friends with a breast cancer diagnosis connect me with women whose cancer had metastasized upon diagnosis. Their deaths hit hard. Like the death of President Kennedy when I was in grammar school, I can recall the exact time and place when I received notice about one of my friends passing. Often the notices are through social media. Having experienced more deaths than I am prepared for, I often think of our first-responders and hospice healthcare providers, where death becomes commonplace, and wonder how they cope with their frequent grief. Many people are using social media as a way to reach out and provide support to women and families affected by breast cancer.The internet and social media have transformed our lives. It has literally opened up a global connection to those with similar interests and passions. In my focused world of patient advocacy for breast health, I meet innumerable women, fervent in their yearly breast cancer screening yet diagnosed with a missed, delayed and advanced stage cancer because of their dense breast tissue. Like me, these women never knew about the impact of dense breast tissue on the reliability of their mammogram until after their diagnosis. Our mission is to correct this fatal flaw in breast cancer screening.Through a quick internet search for information about dense breast tissue, these “strangers” quickly become my fast friends. I often kid that and, the websites of our two nonprofit organizations, are akin to an online-dating service, uniting me with breast cancer patients. These patients are stunned by their later-stage cancers, in spite of never missing a mammography appointment. These encounters lead to a relationship cultivated by e-mails, texts and online messaging. Through Facebook, I remotely get introduced to their kids, grandkids and pets, often commenting on their family’s memorable moments and encouraging them as they progress with their breast cancer treatment. As with online dating, at times we advance the relationship by communicating by phone and on several occasions meet in person. These women become my extended family. Relationships, which were birthed based on our common bond of breast cancer, develop into a heartfelt friendship.

Twenty-eight states have since enacted density reporting laws, and a federal bill is pending.  FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Related Content read more The Advocacy ContinuesThe lives and deaths of my extended newfound family motivate me as I advocate for our mission to eliminate grief of a loved one dying prematurely from this disease. The complexity of breast cancer biology tells us that even with an early diagnosis, the disease can progress and kill. However, research also concludes that early detection still matters. Tumor size and nodal status still have a significant and major influence, independent of tumor biology, in the current era of more conservative surgery and more effective systemic adjuvant therapies. While my heart and soul grieve from the death of friends from breast cancer, it also motivates me to continue to advocate for density reporting and education and access to multimodal screening to reduce advanced disease and premature death from breast cancer.last_img read more

The light at the end of the election

first_imgRelated posts:What keeps Johnny Araya awake at night? Ex-President Abel Pacheco to back opposition candidate Solís Abortion and politics on the campaign trail 3 things that happened this week in Costa Rica’s runoff race A month is an eternity in politics. Today it is difficult to remember when Johnny Araya was actually campaigning to be president. It is even more difficult to remember hisparting words and offers of assistance to the Citizen Action Party and Luis Guillermo Solís on the occasion of Araya’s premature exit from the campaign.While it is easy to see how Johnny’s “absence has made hearts grow fonder” of him, perhaps it is equally important to recall his parting words from those distant days of early March to best determine how trustworthy the National Liberation Party leadership is in their fulfillment of campaign promises, even when those promise were tantamount to the campaign’s dying wishes.In the final official speech of his campaign, Araya said the PLN was “preparing to exercise a responsible opposition” to Solís’ PAC government as “the historic mission of Liberation surpasses a race for the presidency.” Admitting the lack of resources and time to change the electorate’s view of him and the PLN, he suggested it would be “unethical to use ignoble tactics to change the voters’ perceptions.”Antonio Álvarez Desanti, Araya’s campaign manager, was equally magnanimous, claiming “the decision of Don Johnny [to leave the campaign] was the decision of a statesman to give his adversary the freedom of time and space to prepare his next government. “ After all, he said, “The [PLN] campaign will evaporate in the coming days. What follows is a mere formality and mere process, and we understand that the election results will be in favor of PAC.”One wonders how the candidate and his campaign manager could be so wrong about their own political party. This last month has witnessed no respect for the supposed statesman-like decision of Araya to admit defeat and leave electioneering in the past. Nor has the PLN campaign evaporated as Álvarez Desanti promised. The new campaign leadership headed by Bernal Jiménez and a cast of PLN regulars now insist on debates. It usually takes two to tango, and presidential debates without a presidential candidate are quite rare in politics. But the lack of a standard-bearer will not deter the PLN.Recommended: Raising chickens on the ‘Ruta de Alegría’Lawmaker Luis Gerardo Villanueva in a press conference with the new electoral leadership declared that “this is a political campaign – not only a contest between candidates, but also a contest of ideas and programs.” Ideas and programs that PLN lawmaker-elect Ronald González claims PAC is now stealing from them.Are the ideas and programs PLN wishes to debate those that they could have implemented in the last eight years when they controlled the presidency and the Legislative Assembly? Are the proposals PAC has allegedly stolen from PLN the ones they refused to develop in the last near-decade of their reign? Or are they perhaps the corrupt policies and scandal-laden programs PLN actually implemented to the benefit of a few and at the expense of many?No matter what subject they would treat, political debates go well beyond the “mere formality and mere process” of a foregone election that Álvarez Desanti promised oh-so-few weeks ago.Campaign ads also are suggestive of a campaign. Without money to air them, the newest ad for PLN has had to circulate exclusively through social media. Negative in tone, it recalls the PLN’s campaign of fear aimed at the Broad Front Party’s José María Villalta. But in this ad, the target is an expressive Luis Guillermo Solís pumping up his supporters at a campaign rally.A daughter watching Solís on TV asks her father why he is so angry: “He isn’t angry, he is happy,” says her father. The 32-second spot then shows the PAC candidate calling for an end to the corruption of the past, in Spanish repeatedly shouting, “¡No más chorizo!” When the daughter asks the father why he is yelling this, the father responds, “This is a term he uses when he wants to offend us Liberacionistas.”Meant to raise the ire of insulted Liberacionistas, the ad certainly seems to employ the very “ignoble tactics” that candidate Araya claimed were beneath him. It also misfires, as it tries to have rank-and-file Liberation members share the blame for the corruption and scandal of their elected officials. Instead of convincing the PLN rank and file that “No más chorizo” is an insult to them, it begs the questions, “Shouldn’t PLN members be insulted by their leadership exercising the resources of the state as if they existed primarily to enrich them personally? Shouldn’t voters be angered by it? Shouldn’t Costa Ricans be as excited as the PAC candidate by the prospect of ending political corruption?”Unable to be honest during their eight years of victory, the PLN has demonstrated that neither can they be trusted in defeat. Araya’s offer to allow PAC to organize the Assembly also has fallen on the deaf ears of eager incoming PLN lawmakers who, desirously clinging to power, would rather ally with the neoliberals of the Libertarian Movement Party and the members of the Costa Rican religious right than look for solutions to national problems.A party in disarray, PLN’s leadership no longer knows what their principles are. These values apparently were never represented by their presidential candidate; Araya was so quickly pushed aside and so easily ignored that his advice, appeals and final wishes go unheeded. Neither does the PLN leadership see these principles in their former head of campaign, Álvarez Desanti. His pledges regarding the end of the political campaign were easily trampled by a more power-hungry faction of the PLN in obvious fear that with defeat will come an end to their political largess.This frenzied turmoil in the last days before voters go to the polls recalls words from the famous Dylan Thomas poem: “Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”It may be more than the death of a campaign voters are witnessing. It may be the lights going out on the aged and infirm leadership of the PLN.May they rest in peace.Gary L. Lehring is a professor of government at Smith College, Northampton, Massachusetts.

first_img FILE – In this May 13, 2005, file photo, a man puts finishing touches on his sand castle along the beac in Boracay, central Philippines. As the Thailand government announced that it will close its iconic Maya Bay on Phi Phi Leh island, Philippines President President Rodrigo Duterte has vowed to close Boracay, a small central island popular for its powdery white sand beaches and vibrant nightlife, saying it has become a “cesspool.” (AP Photo/Pat Roque, File) Thai beach from DiCaprio movie gets breather from tourists BANGKOK – The daily hordes of tourists have exhausted the Thai beach made famous by the Leonardo DiCaprio movie.Maya Bay, on Phi Phi Leh island in the Andaman Sea, will be closed to all visitors for four months annually starting this June to allow for the recovery of the battered coral reefs and sea life. The decision to keep visitors away was made Wednesday by Thailand’s National Parks and Wildlife Department.“It’s like someone who has been working for decades and has never stopped,” said Thon Thamrongnawasawat, a prominent marine scientist and member of Thailand’s national strategy committee on environment development. “Overworked and tired, all the beauty of the beach is gone. We need a timeout for the beach.”Many Thai marine national parks are closed from mid-May to mid-October, but because of tourist demand, Maya Bay has remained open year-round since a Hollywood crew set foot there in 1999 to film “The Beach,” the dark backpacker tale based on a novel by Alex Garland.The beach receives an average of 200 boats and 4,000 visitors each day. Recent surveys by a team led by marine biologists found a large part of the coral reefs around the area is gone and sea life has virtually disappeared.Other Southeast Asian beach resorts are under threat too.In the Philippines, President Rodrigo Duterte has vowed to close Boracay, a small central island popular for its powdery white sand beaches and vibrant nightlife, saying it has become a “cesspool.”“Their waste would go directly to the ocean. The germ content is already very high there,” Duterte said last week. “It only looks good because of the white coastline.”His top environmental officials say Boracay may be closed in the last week of April after a 30-day notice is issued and the tropical island placed under a state of calamity to allow the government to extend emergency funds to affected villagers and establishments.During the closure, which could last six months or less, a massive cleanup is planned and noncompliant beach resorts and other establishments would have to install waste treatment and disposal systems to halt further contamination. Boracay drew more than 1 million tourists last year mostly from Asia, the United States and Europe.Boracay officials may face administrative cases for allowing environmental laws to be breached for years and for failing to regulate the influx of tourists beyond the island’s capacity.Thon said the Thai beach’s temporary closing will kick-start the rehabilitation process.“If you ask me if it is too late to save our islands, the answer is no. But if we don’t do something today, it will be too late,” said Thanya Netithammakum, head of the National Parks and Wildlife Department.When Maya Bay reopens, the department will set a daily limit of 2,000 tourists, while boats will no longer be allowed to anchor there and will have to dock on the opposite side of the island at floating piers.The number of visitors the beach has been seeing is unsustainable, and a temporary closure is better than nothing, Thon said.“The locals know that and we all know that,” he said. “This would be a good way to start managing our tourist destinations. And we can improve on what we learn after the first year. We know that it’s important we manage our resources well. It’s not about more numbers of tourists but about sustainable tourism that benefit locals as well.”More than 35 million tourists visited Thailand last year, compared to around 10 million when “The Beach” premiered in 2000.Thai authorities have in the past closed off islands ruined by mass tourism. Koh Yoong, part of the Phi Phi island chain, and Koh Tachai, in the Similan Islands National Park, have been off limits to tourists permanently since mid-2016.Thon, who surveyed both islands recently, said the results have been amazing. Areas with a bleak sea life environment and coral bleaching are now teeming with robust and colorful sea life and coral, he said. He’s certain that the annual closure will also help restore Maya Bay.“I have always dreamt that one day we could work to bring her back to life. I have been following and working on Maya Bay for more than 30 years. I had seen it when it was a heaven and I see it when it has nothing left. Anything that we can do to bring this paradise back to Thailand is the dream of a marine biologist,” he said.___Associated Press writer Jim Gomez in Manila, Philippines, contributed to this report.center_img by Tassanee Vejpongsa, The Associated Press Posted Mar 28, 2018 5:51 am PDT Last Updated Mar 29, 2018 at 7:40 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emaillast_img read more

Building a regional alliance for stability

first_imgThe co-operation between Cyprus, Greece, and Egypt aims to bring stability in a volatile area and to allow everyone to reap the benefits of the natural wealth, President Nicos Anastasiades said.The effort “is to create conditions of co-operation between neighbouring countries in an area characterised by instability,” Anastasiades said in an interview with state broadcaster CyBC.The three countries are working to forge closer ties in various areas, including energy, economy, and tourism.A summit is scheduled to take place on November 8 in Cairo. It follows a meeting in Nicosia this week between the three countries’ foreign ministers.Anastasiades said it was not limited to relations between the three countries, rather, it extended to other neighbours like Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, and the Gulf states.The president stressed that the endeavour was not directed at any country,“We give this trilateral relation that is being built the greatest attention. I am certain that other neighbours will realize that the best way to utilise the wealth in the area is through co-operation and not confrontation,” Anastasiades said, in a clear reference to Turkey.The neighbouring country has dispatched a research vessel to carry out seismic surveys inside Cyprus’ exclusive economic zone, off the southern coast, where international companies are carrying out natural gas exploration.The move prompted Anastasiades to pull out of reunification talks.“If we achieve equal co-operation where the aim is for everyone to benefit from natural wealth, I do not see why Turkey should have a say in another country’s affairs,” he said.It is welcome to have an interest, he added, because at the end of the day producers of natural gas would seek buyers.So it is best to co-operate instead of working on how they can be leaders in a game where they have no place as regards production, the president said.Turkey did not appear prepared to play by the rules.A statement issued following a meeting of the country’s national security council, said Turkey was determined to take any measure necessary to protect its interests and rights within its continental shelf and as a guarantor power in the areas designated by the breakaway Turkish Cypriot state.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementCardiologist: This Is What Happens To Your Body When You Eat GlutenGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Muslims ingesting pork is a sin and pig’s blood is considered unholy Brian McAllister Linn a history professor at Texas A&M University who is an expert in the Philippine conflict said he first remembers this tale about Pershing surfacing right after the terrorist attacks on September 11 2001 (Another version of the story has Pershing burying Muslim bodies with pigs) Linn said that he and Frank Vandiver who wrote a biography of Pershing and passed away in 2005 were contacted at the time about the veracity of the story “We both checked our notes and found no evidence to support this” Linn told TIME “We also concluded it was out of character” Snopes a myth-busting site came to the same conclusion: “We haven’t yet found any references to this alleged incident in Pershing biographies however nor does it match the way Pershing is generally recorded as having dealt with the Moros in 1911” the site concludes It may have been out of character for Pershing but it may not have been out of character for other US troops Trump did hit on an unfortunate truth that the occupation of the Philippines involved deliberate attemptsat least among the ranksto use religious taboos to intimidate people In 1941 TIME ran a letter to the editor from a soldier named J R McKey who had served with Pershing in the Philippines decades before In the letter McKey describes using pigs in burials to deter Muslim insurgent activities but does not ascribe the act to Pershing McKey wrote “US soldiers … had a pretty good cure for juramentado [Moro swordsmen] activities Knowing the horror of the Mohammedan for any contact with swine and particularly with its blood these American roughnecks when they had killed a juramentado held for him a very public funeral The body of the defunct bad man having been deposited in the grave a pig was brought stuck its blood sprinkled freely over the D B M the dead pig thrown in with him and the burial completed” Some reports do say that Pershing was engaged in burying Muslims with pigs or throwing pig’s blood on them According to the History News Network a Chicago Daily Tribune article from 1927 describes Pershing sprinkling prisoners with pig’s blood then setting them free to warn others of being doused with the blood “Those drops of porcine gore proved more powerful than bullets” the article wrote Christopher Capozzola a history professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology also cited an incident in which Pershing brought a pig’s head to a ceasefire negotiation with a Muslim leader “So yes there were deliberate efforts to offend Muslim Filipinos’ religious sensibilities” Capozzola told TIME “And yes there was large-scale violence against their communities But I know of no event like the one that Mr Trump describes” Write to
