Even before Joe Biden’s inauguration, he and his team of Wokers were calling for an end to the Keystone Pipeline. The part of the energy project known as Keystone XL was delayed, then started back up again, and delayed again by three presidents since 2015 now, including Biden.
Environmentalist whackjobs howled at the moon making the pipeline a symbol of the struggle over climate change and fossil fuels. That’s the official story we’ve been fed by the Woke media, Woke environmentalist groups, and now the Biden administration.
Well, on his first day in the office that many believe he stole, President Joe Biden signed an executive order invalidating the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline, ending construction in the United States.
TC Energy Corp. said it will now have to lay off thousands of workers because of the order, many of them union members. The company’s president said the layoffs would necessarily come to more than one-thousands. The company estimated back in October that the pipeline would hire 11,000 Americans in 2021, generating over $1.6 billion in real wages. The Democrats couldn’t go one day without killing American jobs.
The Keystone XL pipeline is an international project that has been in the works for years now. Absent support from the US government and it’s officially dead in the water, which is exactly what the Woke wanted.
The pipeline, all 875 miles of it would deliver heavy crude oil from Western Canada to Steele City, Nebraska and from there it would mix with another line stretching to refineries in the Gulf Coast. All the jobs that go with the pipeline will now go away. The Woke in the mainstream Fake News media is going to tell you that it’s not really 11,000 jobs that are going away or that they were mostly temporary jobs but the fact of the matter is there are other jobs that have no direct work on the pipeline itself. For example, someone has to manufacture the actual pipe, someone has to manufacturer the vehicles that are used for the workers to get the pipeline, someone has to create the tools that the pipeline workers will use to build, fix, and maintain the pipeline, and people have to do all of the other things that are necessary to help the project be a success. We’re talking about millions of jobs overall.
Biden’s executive order revokes the permit that then-President Donald Trump granted on March 29, 2019 because he says it will be harmful to the environment. At least Trump was a businessman who knows how to hire people to analyze a situation like this, while Biden has never held a real job in his entire adult life and he knows nothing about the oil industry outside of what the Woke Supremacy believes.
Do you know what kind of environment will be harmed because of Biden’s action to shut down the pipeline? How about people in the wintertime who won’t be able to afford oil to heat their homes? How about all the plastic products that we use in our lives like Saran wrap and pens and mobile phones and computer keyboards etc that will see the prices skyrocket because of a shortage of oil?
The Woke will say that the halting of this pipeline isn’t going to stop any production of oil but the reality of it is the halting of the Keystone Pipeline is just the beginning. Biden has already violated one of his campaign promises by banning fracking on federal lands. During the campaign, Biden and Kamala Harris both said numerous times on video that they were for banning fracking. In one of the debates against Donald Trump, Biden responded to President Trump who brought the point up that Biden would ban fracking by saying that he never said he would even though we all watched him say it numerous times all around the country. Well, he banned fracking, didn’t he? He says the pipeline and fracking are dangerous to our environment.
However, Donald Trump Jr. sees this latest delay from a completely different angle. He believes Biden acted as Democrats in power always do by providing a kickback to powerful rich donors who helped them get elected. It’s why Jimmy Carter destroyed our public school system after the teacher’s unions gave him money to get elected. This is no different
Also worth noting it doesn’t end oil transportation it just forces oil companies to spend more money shipping oil on Warren Buffets rail lines.
See how that works? It’s not environmental policy it’s a kickback to democrat donors and nothing more. https://t.co/PwRrMRwTbO

Don Jr. pointed out that major donors to the Democratic Party, like billionaire Warren Buffet (who owns a railroad) and others will benefit from the halting of Keystone XL. The oil will still be delivered one way or the other unless the Democrats really do want to take us back to the 18th century (that’s the 1700s for those of you in the Woke Supremacy). But instead of the oil being delivered efficiently through a pipeline, which with today’s technology is safer than it’s ever been, the mode of transportation of the oil will be from the use of rail lines then transported over to semi-trucks, and the cost of the oil by the time it gets to the consumer by a much less efficient manner will absolutely go up. You Biden voters should remember that when your heating bill skyrockets or when gasoline prices at the pump go up. Not a problem, because the Woke will somehow find a way to blame Donald Trump.
So, does Biden’s executive order help the environment? Not on your life. Since most of the concerns of the Woke have been dismantled, there was no reason to make changes in the delivery of oil that will most likely cause more harm to the environment than the pipeline itself. The Woke should see this move as a less carbon-friendly decision, but that’s up to the Fake News media to cover it or not. At least now you know the truth.
