(Tea Party 247) – American blue-collar workers be damned. Biden has no concern for American interests at all. He has made that abundantly clear within his first month as president.
Biden has literally not done a single thing that benefits American citizens during the short time he has been in the White House. Not only has he done nothing for America, he’s making sure that foreign interests are at the top of his priority list.
Within the first 24 hours of his administration, Biden killed the Keystone XL Pipeline which resulted in thousands of Americans and Canadians being put out of work. He has since done absolutely nothing to help these now unemployed workers and their families but he’s doing everything he can to help the Taliban.
That’s right. Though Biden has canceled the Keystone Pipeline in the name of climate change, he’s now supporting a deal between the Taliban and one of the world’s most brutal dictatorships for a trans-national pipeline.
This is just a blatant slap in Americans’ faces.
American Enterprise Institute scholar Michael Rubin says the agreement with the government of Turkmenistan would establish a pipeline that would bring gas across Afghanistan and Pakistan to India.
“Consider that while the Biden administration is killing a pipeline from which the public could benefit, Biden is promoting a pipeline to enrich both one of the world’s worst dictatorships and a group responsible for thousands of U.S. deaths,” he wrote in a column for the Washington Examiner.
Worth pointing out is the fact that this is the very same deal that now-Special Envoy Zalmary Khalilzad attempted to make with the Taliban prior to the 9/11 terror attack.
Rubin pointed out that Freedom House’s latest Freedom in the World report has Turkmenistan ranked as one of the world’s worst violators of civil liberties.
The deal would include paying the Taliban protection money or transit fees for the pipeline transiting Afghan territory. In other words, the Taliban would be rewarded tens of millions of dollars per month despite their deadly insurgency.
While American workers are out of work and Americans will soon be paying a ton more for oil imported from our enemies, Biden and his administration are working on a deal to essentially fund the Taliban and their terroristic activities and further undermine the Afghanistan government.
Rubin is calling out Biden’s blatant hypocrisy, “If the Biden administration says no to pipeline jobs in the Midwest, it should not then turn around and help enrich the Taliban to ship Turkmen gas to the Indian Ocean.”
He went on to say, “It is time for Secretary of State Antony Blinken to call his envoy, end this hypocrisy, and stop coddling some of the world’s most anti-American movements.”
Unfortunately, Biden’s entire agenda revolves around coddling anti-American movements. He is the most anti-American president to step foot in the White House since Obama.
Rubin also argues that Biden’s cancellation of the pipeline won’t do a thing to help the environment and, if anything, will only pose greater environmental hazards and risks.
Instead of oil being moved through a state-of-the-art pipeline, it will now be transported by trains, trucks and older existing pipelines and ships “where the damage from a potential spill would be harder to manage.”
Not to mention the strain it has put on the US-Canada relationship. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is not happy about Biden’s decision to cancel the pipeline which he did without any consideration towards Canada.
After Biden single-handedly put thousands of Americans and Canadians out of work, made the transportation of oil more dangerous and less efficient, and damaged our relationship with our oldest ally, he’s now supporting the Taliban and one of the most oppressive countries in the world.
How can Democrat voters continue to defend this man?
