Well, it took nearly a year, but F. Joe Biden has officially terminated the Keystone XL pipeline. A federal district court judge dismissed a lawsuit by GOP attorneys general, claiming the developer abandoned the project.
A federal district court judge granted the Biden administration’s request to dismiss a lawsuit filed by more than 20 Republican attorneys general challenging the Keystone XL Pipeline’s permit revocation.
I mean, American energy independence would have been sweet, but who here doesn’t want to pay much more for oil and gas, amirite?
Judge Jeffrey Brown, of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas, ruled that he couldn’t determine the constitutionality of President Joe Biden’s action because TC Energy, the pipeline’s developer, had abandoned the project. On June 9, TC Energy announced its intention to permanently halt construction of the pipeline, saying it would focus on other projects.
Biden canceled the pipeline’s federal permit immediately after taking office on Jan. 20 in an executive order.
Funny how nearly every one of the illegitimate president’s actions are done through executive orders. It’s almost like he cannot get anything passed without them.
Richard Trumka, the uber-corrupt leader of the equally corrupt AFL-CIO wet his pants after the illegitimate president canceled the Keystone XL Pipeline.
The move is likely to cost union workers 11,000 jobs, and since the union went all-in for Biden, I think this is delicious.
AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka slammed President Joe Biden during an interview that aired in part on Sunday over his executive order that canceled the Keystone XL Pipeline, which cost a lot of people their jobs.
“Organized labor is crucial to the Biden coalition. But there are significant tensions among environmentalists, the president’s team addressing climate change and some parts of the labor movement,” Axios reported. “The Laborers’ International Union of North America said the Keystone decision will cost 1,000 existing union jobs and 10,000 projected construction jobs.”
Trumka said that he “thinks” that Biden realizes it was a mistake to sign the executive order costing Americans jobs during the middle of a pandemic.
Trumka doesn’t even get halfway through the interview before he starts wavering on Biden. What an absolute worm. Well, if nothing else, the members of the AFL-CIO have the perfect person to lead them down the road to ruin.
