1) Unions the Real Villain in the Keystone Pipeline Scandal

The Biden administration’s decision to squash the pipeline and kill some 10,000 union jobs is indefensible of course. But the biggest scoundrels here were the union bosses who threw their own workers in unemployment lines. 

Here is the Washington Post headline from back in August:

“Pipe fitting union backs Biden, despite his vow to stop the Keystone XL pipeline”

Mark McManus, president of the 350,000 member UA, described Biden gushingly as “a longtime labor ally” and someone we “strongly endorse.”

Biden said he was “deeply honored” to get the endorsement. “I promise you this: if I’m elected, workers and unions will have the strongest friend they have ever had in the White House.”

If there were any justice in this world, the first of those 10,000 union workers to lose their jobs as a result of this debacle should be Mr. McManus’s

2) The Red Tape President

Remember Trump’s promise to repeal two regulations for every new one? That was Executive Order 13771 “Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs,” signed in 2017. After four years, Trump agencies killed about eight regulations for every new one. These efforts saved the economy hundreds of billions of dollars. The economy boomed.



Biden repealed that order last week. In his statement, he boasts that under his plan, Biden appointees will have the power “to use robust regulatory action to address national priorities.” He criticized Trump’s actions for “frustrating” the ability of federal regulators to…well, shrink the economy.

Sorry folks, it’s going to be a long four years.
