Biden’s killing the XL pipeline real winner was not the environment


By revoking the Keystone pipeline permit, Biden is destroying 11,000 jobs and roughly $2 billion in wages. Democrats couldn’t even get through Day 1 without killing jobs for middle class Americans. But think again if you think it had anything to do with the environmentalists. No, he is paying back those who funded his inauguration, funded his campaign and otherwise filled his coffers

Warren Buffett’s Burlington Northern Santa Fe LLC is among U.S. and Canadian railroads that stand to benefit from the Biden administration’s decision to pull TransCanada Corp. (TRP)’s Keystone XL oil pipeline permit.

With modest expansion, railroads can handle all new oil produced in western Canada through 2030, according to an analysis of the Keystone proposal by the U.S. State Department(2015). Chuckle time!

“Whatever people bring to us, we’re ready to haul,” Krista York-Wooley, a spokeswoman for Burlington Northern, a unit of Buffett’s Omaha, Nebraska-based Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK/A), said in an interview. If Keystone XL “doesn’t happen, we’re here to haul.” From: Bloomberg

The keystone pipeline is actually just one of several oil sands pipelines targeted by the Rockefeller Brother’s Fund. Ezra Levant calls it industrial sabotage and, based on their own Power Point, that certainly seems an apt description.Found and more at: Heritage.  From my post Rockefeller Fund sabotages Keystone pipeline approval. The Rockefeller Brother’s Fund in a coordinated, 4-year, $28 million dollar campaign was on the march to defeat it.

While Rockefeller and other groups are actively working to dismantle Canada’s energy production infrastructure, polling shows that Canadians overwhelmingly support oil pipeline projects. And for good reason: the energy sector employs 230,000 Canadians, and represents nearly 7 percent of the country’s economy.

All to keep the price of energy up.

Side note on Canadian National Railroad (CN) – Bill Gates is their biggest investor.

The Keystone Pipeline project was expected to create tens of thousands of high paying jobs in the oil industry. The project itself would create 20,000 construction jobs. (From a post back in November, 2015)

Why here is good old Warren Buffet as he makes his millions off of his Railroads.  Lets all sing along with Warren as he wishes China a great new year working on the Railroads. Throw in the Rockefellers as well.

But this will no doubt is just the beginning of making sure we are no longer energy independent. Recall this little number?

Wes Clark Jr knees and apologizes to Native Americans over pipeline

 Long after permits were given to complete the pipeline the Army Corp rescinds the permit on the altar of perceived P.C. I bet this has the Chinese shaking in their boots to learn how hard it is to get the military to back down. But let us not stop there. We have Wes Clark Jr and his band of bowers, kneeling and apologizing. What is it with this prostrating oneself? Here tis:

Wes Clark Jr., the son of retired U.S. Army general and former supreme commander at NATO Wesley Clark Sr., was part of a group of veterans at Standing Rock one day after the Army Corps announcement. The veterans joined Native American tribal elders in a ceremony celebrating the Dakota Access Pipeline easement denial.

 Lakota spiritual leader and medicine man Chief Leonard Crow Dog and Standing Rock Sioux spokeswoman Phyllis Young were among several Native elders who spoke, thanking the veterans for standing in solidarity during the protests.

The swamp is very happy indeed and looks forward to a bright future.

    The effect of putting large numbers of Americans out of work is that it takes food from their dining room tables. Eleven-thousand workers out of work is “huge,” much in the same way that Obama closed down coal production and off-shore drilling and I think those numbers exceeded 11,000 by a large amount — but of course, this was only on Biden’s first day. For many, which is to say among the 160-million workers who have not lost their jobs (yet), it’s a ‘meh’ moment. Biden knows this. And he can recoup revenue losses by increasing taxes on those who still have jobs, so …

    Bad policy? Sure it is, but this is what the American people, in all their wisdom, voted for. Biden knows this; he’s got the mandate of heaven working for him. We’ve got to save the Environment. What these low IQ leftists are saving it from has always confused me, since Earth was here long before humans, and it will remain long after we’re gone. This is what distinguishes Democrats from normal people: they live for the ‘now’ moment, without any consideration of the impact of job losses. Beyond the financial impact of job loss, there is significantly increased mental depression, increases in substance abuse, increases in crime, fewer demands for consumer goods. And yet, none of this really matters because … well, Biden got his.

    Apparently, we have no capacity for understanding long-term consequences — and truth be known, WE don’t really care. Biden is focused entirely on the next four years. He’s delivering on his promises, no matter if they were insane, to begin with. Eleven-thousand jobs a “small price” to pay in the “greater good.” Of course, the greater good is an entirely subjective term. As I commented earlier today on Mark’s blog, what we are seeing isn’t entirely new, but crony capitalism is getting even worse. Does anyone really believe that the media’s stranglehold on freedom of opinion is mere happenstance? Look — leftists now control 90% of American media: free air & cable television, radio, newspapers, film/park entertainment industries, hotel chains, and social communications platforms. Increasingly, these media moguls unabashedly proclaim “Employment Opportunities: Conservative Need Not Apply. “ What I’m talking about now are board room decisions to create de facto monopolies that work against the interests of US society and the overall economy. Remember — corporations are not bound by the Bill of Rights; constitutional rights and protections only apply to the federal/state governments, but that doesn’t preclude the political elite from joining forces with the communist left to accomplish the same thing. Prediction: this stuff will only get WORSE.

      C’on man….to coin a Biden phrase. I was masochistic enough to watch Biden’s role out of more of his edicts right now. After announcing 100 million shots in 100 days, some fool shouted out at the end… a no no…. that we were already doing a million a day…. the response of course Come man…. I just got here…. Biden attacks Trump for his complete failure… and now will take credit for the success of Trump.
      But wait… having been in healthcare.. I can assure you that Biden will rue the day he “federalized” this.. as I have predicted….it will be the beginning of an awakening.
      Waiting I am to read the “Health Equity” administrator piece in his plan now out there. Let’s see how did Obamacare work out?

        I neg to differ on one point: There will be no awakening since the un-immunized and never to be immunized know damn well its Trump’s plan to infect the hoards and kill off as many americans and illegals as possible. As long as there there is a Trump Biden and his successor is responsible for none of the bad he has planned for us.

    Democrats are focused on the minimum wage and raising it to $15/hr. Democrats are the “minimum wage party.” All they talk about, in terms of labor, is the minimum wage. $31,200 per year. The Democrats are focused on making terrible jobs a little bit less terrible.

    Not only are they not interested in creating more good jobs, well paying jobs, jobs on which a single worker can raise a family, they want to destroy in the name on “good work” as many of those existing jobs as they can. Of those Keystone XL pipeline jobs that were lost, many thousand were welders, which pays upwards of $100,000 per year. Those people, and many would have been women and minorities, can go flip burgers for one third of that.

    In Biden’s handy-dandy little second-hand report, he says that railroads can handle the load. Does he delve into the spillage, the evaporation, or the other forms of waste created by a paraffin-heavy compound like the sands oil?

      Why Do These Train Cars Carrying Oil Keep Blowing Up?
      Early on the morning of July 6, 2013, a runaway freight train derailed in Lac-Mégantic, Quebec, setting off a series of massive explosions and inundating the town in flaming oil. The inferno destroyed the downtown area; 47 people died.

      The 72-car train had been carrying nearly 2 million gallons of crude oil from North Dakota’s Bakken fields. While the recent surge in domestic oil production has raised concerns about fracking, less attention has been paid to the billions of gallons of petroleum crisscrossing the country in “virtual pipelines” running through neighbor­hoods and alongside waterways.

    In 1974 collected unemployment benefits for several weeks while transitioning between careers. I wore a button to the unemployment office that read”A hand job is better than no job.” I have no idea what that has to do with 10,000 pipeline workers losing their jobs, I guess I merely enjoy waxing folksy.

    I understand following his trail of tears Wesley Clark Jr sold his home and now lives in a trailer on cinder blocks and has joined the Whothefugarwe tribe.

    So Biden kills 8,000 pipe jobs (pipe fitters, welders, earth workers, drivers, and many other blue collar jobs) in one day. Imagine what he will do with the rest of his administration.

    You still can’t convince me that he received more votes than the Green party, much less Trump. If he really won without cheating, why didn’t he have coattails?

    He is not President Biden. He is Resident Biden. He was installed.

    Off topic; They’re back, as if they ever left. and Antifa is picking up where it never left off on our left coast. We’ll soon see if current President Lunch Bucket or incoming President Kameltoe will have the pelotas to put them down. Since Antifa doesn’t exist, they’re just an idea so say the top tier Dems, maybe store owners are assaulting citizens, smashing windows, looting and burning their own establishments for the insurance money, that must be it.
