Why are so many liberals now complaining about Joe Biden’s policies? You voted for the guy! And it’s not like any of the stuff that he’s doing to America were secrets. He said it out loud, for months on end. Biden nuked the Keystone XL pipeline project with a stroke of his pen, and then he followed that up by nuking oil and gas jobs all across the country. You know… like he SAID he would do!
The media is doing absolutely everything it can to try to minimize the destruction that Beijing Biden did to America on his first day in office. “Oh, it’s great news for the environment. And besides, the Keystone pipeline was only employing something like… 2,500 people… in Canada!”
Geographically, the Keystone pipeline represents one of the largest infrastructure projects in human history. Stretching from the far north of Canada to the Gulf of Mexico, the pipeline would transport oil and natural gas thousands of miles and make it available to export for the rest of the world. The Arab Gulf states, China and Russia would no longer have any control over American energy, as far as oil and gas are concerned.
Canada is simultaneously alarmed and enraged by Joe Biden’s sudden betrayal. One of our closest and strongest allies now finds itself the proud owner of a near-pointless pipeline that stretches from the north of Canada… to the south of Canada, where they literally cannot export it by any means other than hauling it on trucks.
And it’s not just “2,500 construction jobs in Canada” that Joe Biden destroyed. It was at least another 6,500 current union jobs in the US. And that’s just for the construction of the pipeline.
A 2010 study commissioned by TransCanada showed that following the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, the ancillary refineries, factories, petroleum-dependent manufacturing plants and service industry jobs created due to the existence of the pipeline itself, could top out around 550,000 jobs. That’s half a million future jobs that Joe Biden killed singlehandedly.
For his second trick of the day, Biden instated a 60-day freeze on all new oil and gas leases on federal lands, effectively ending the Trump-induced energy boom that America was enjoying. Lawmakers in New Mexico are suddenly horrified that they helped swing the election in favor of Joe Biden. That’s because those oil and gas leases that Biden just canceled in their state were expected to help pay heavily into public education and other services. Oops.
(Pro tip: Next time, don’t help Democrats win elections. Just sayin’.)
And if Biden makes the lease ban permanent, Texas expects to lose 120,000 oil and gas jobs. So, that brings us up to… what? 679,000 jobs destroyed during Joe Biden’s first day on the job? The next time you’re at the gas pump, take a picture of the price you’re paying for fuel. Come back a year from now and let us know how happy you are that Joe Biden is in office.
A text message exchange between a woman who voted for Joe Biden and one of her friends has now gone viral on Twitter. The Biden voter who is married to a man in the oil and gas sector wrote:
“Jeremy just called and yelled at me. He said that everyone on the job site are freaking out thinking they are going to lose their jobs. He’s blaming me for voting for Biden. You know I hated the way Trump acted. Is it true that Jeremy could lose his job?”
Her friend texted her back:
“Ok, first I’m sorry Jeremy is likely losing his job. I’m going to be honest with you though, YOU voted for this. I didn’t and neither did Jeremy, but we will be suffering…. I always knew people would regret voting for Biden, I didn’t think it would be Day 1. Biden probably won’t hurt your feelings as much as Trump, but he will take you husband’s job.”
I guess that all of those liberal housewives married to oil and gas workers with upper middle-class salaries expected that Biden’s Green New Deal wouldn’t apply to their husbands’ jobs. To all of those liberals who soon won’t have food in their pantries due to Joe Biden’s executive orders: That growling sound from your stomach is just the peace of knowing Donald Trump is no longer in office. Enjoy it. Sleep well.
