Out of work and losing money, pipeline workers and business owners lash out at Biden admin: Report

At one point last month during his first address as president to a joint session of Congress, Joe Biden expressed his support for union and blue-collar workers. But a new report from the Washington Examiner suggests the Democrat president’s policies are actually costing many of those workers their jobs. Now, they’re speaking out.

Speaking with the Examiner‘s Barnini Chakraborty, workers and business owners who benefited from the use of pipelines to transport fuel across the U.S. say they haven’t been feeling the love from the Biden White House — and the hypocrisy, they say, is stunning.

“Sold us out”

Among Biden’s first acts upon taking the Oval Office was to sign an executive order blocking construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, and the results have been devastating.

“How do they lay their heads down at night knowing they’re supposed to be protecting these people and providing them with what they need to live?” Peter Bardeson asked Chakraborty.

Based in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Bardeson serves as business manager for the Laborers, Local 620 union. He went on to complain that Biden “sold us out.”

“They want to destroy America”

Not that the effects of the president’s policies are limited to individuals who would have directly worked on the pipeline; the businesses that serve them have also been impacted.

It’s something Laurie Cox understands all too well. Cox owns the Stroppel Hotel in Midland, South Dakota, and she told the Examiner that she suffered when pipeline workers found themselves laid off as a result of Biden’s order.

“The current administration is doing nothing but proving they want to destroy America,” Cox told Chakraborty. “It solidifies that this administration does not have a platform for anything except hate.”

“We need the pipelines”

Adding insult to injury was a recent admission by Biden Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm that pipelines are the safest way to transport oil and gas within the continental U.S. Chakraborty pointed out that the facts back Granholm’s statement, as spills involving pipelines are far less common than those associated with trucks or rail cars.

What’s more, importing oil from Canada via pipeline is safer and less expensive than transporting it in tanker ships from overseas, the Examiner reporter said.

“Until America becomes energy independent, we need the pipelines,” semi-retired mechanic Gaylord Lincoln told Chakraborty. “They cost less and are more efficient,” Lincoln explained.

“The Biden administration can’t argue with a straight face that pipelines are worse for the environment,” he added in his interview with the Examiner. “Nothing they say holds water.”

    Nothing that Biden says or his teem says will never hold water. Biden and Harris lie to the American people all of the time. The democratic party what’s to destroy American in every way that they can and the citizens of this country also.

    Biden and Harris both need to be impeached and “NOW”! Pelosi need to be put completely out of our government and “NOW” !

  7. Yap they sold you out thats what you get for voting for this SOB AND THE REST OF THE WORTHLESS DEMOCRATS YOU GET NOTHING BUT A BUNCH OF LIES.

  8. The Blue Collar folks better wise up. Check that…..THE UNION LEADERS WHO SELL THEM OUT NEED TO WISE UP. Biden and Harris are PURE SCUM. Ditto the entire Dem/ communist / woke cretins. They areca scourge that will either be dealt with head on……or we will be destroyed by our lethargy and the RINO cowards and traitors that have allowed this nightmare to take hold.

  9. When will people start looking at these politicians actions, past and present instead of just listening to their pretty words. All politicians try to sway people with their words, but the left seems to use lies much more then any of them. Joe and the Ho have been very much liars. What they promised during the campaign was 180 degrees from what they have done since elected. We MUST take back the House and Senate in 2022 or this country may well end up so far down the road it will be irretrievable.

  10. “Until the U.S. becomes energy independent”…..
    We were energy independent under President Trump. Biden keeps taking us backwards!!

  11. I am happy to listen to any defensible arguments/discussions as long as the other listens equally to mine. But I have not ever nor will I ever be engaged in “conversation” with anyone who is disrespectful. The threats put forth and aloofness presented by bh are deep in that category. They, and others, are so thick with power that they feel they can do and say anything to the people who, ostensibly, put them to serve the nation. Is this lost on people — I haven’t heard/read citizens complaining about the sheer power-fed rudeness exhibited.

  12. I really can’t feel sorry for those of you who voted for this man. He stood up there and said what he was going to do!!!! Where you not listening? I guess the answer is no. Now you reap what you sow. WE AS AMERICANS MUST STAND UNITED OR ELSE WE LOOSE THIS NATION THAT OUR FATHERS AND THEIR FATHERS AND THEIR FATHERS FOUGHT FOR. Your hater for the best president EVER is what got us here. Now we all suffer.
