America Last: Biden Gives Russians Pipelines & Jobs But CANCELS Them In America
When Joe Biden took office he shut down the keystone pipeline project, then took a hammer to oil production on federal land which crippling oil drilling for native tribes. Biden also seemed to care less about the pipeline crisis in southeast and his administration seemed to enjoy the skyrocketing fuel prices.
However, Biden doesn’t seem to have a problem with giving Russian’s jobs and pipelines.
When in office President Trump did everything he could to prevent Russia’s Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to Germany. Trump blocked the deal to sanction Russia when they would get out of line and the policy had bipartisan support.
Biden on the other hand waived sanctions against the Russian-owned company because it “would negatively impact U.S. relations with Germany, the EU and other European allies and partners.”
Democrat Senator Bob Menendez (NJ), chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee denounced Biden’s decision.
“I am opposed to the decision by the Biden administration to waive sanctions on NS2 AG and Matthias Warnig. I urge the administration to rip off the Band-Aid, lift these waivers and move forward with the congressionally mandated sanctions,” Menendez said.
“The administration has said that the pipeline is a bad idea and that it is a Russian malign influence project. I share that sentiment, but fail to see how today’s decision will advance U.S. efforts to counter Russian aggression in Europe,” he said.
Former US ambassador to Ukraine, John Herbst agreed the move makes Biden look incredibly weak.
“It demonstrates that ultimately standing up to Russia was of less importance,” said Herbst. “It really undercuts Biden’s ‘I’m-tough-on-Russia’ stance.’”
Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse noted, “Two months ago, President Biden called Putin a ‘killer,’ but today he’s planning to give Putin, his regime and his cronies massive strategic leverage in Europe. You can’t pretend to be a Russia hawk but then just roll over.”
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), noted that while Biden is killing pipeline projects in the USA he’s promoting them in Russia.
Joe Biden cares more about pipelines and jobs in Russia than jobs and pipelines here in the United States. It’s asinine. pic.twitter.com/7j434pyjZG

Biden will let Russia build a pipeline but has no problem shutting them down in America.
