Union leader who endorsed Biden turns against him
- by: Art Moore
Ironically, noted PJ Media's Matt Margolis, McManus and the UA endorsed Biden because the then-candidate supposedly had a reputation for standing with unions and creating jobs.
"This endorsement is about putting UA members to work and fighting for fair wages and good benefits. Under a Biden Administration, that's exactly what we'll get," said McManus at the time.
Biden, he said, "will be a fierce ally to our UA Brothers and Sisters in the White House."
But even more troubling, Margolis pointed out, is the fact that the union's endorsement came after Biden's campaign had already declared his intention to kill the pipeline if elected.
In a May 2020 statement, Biden policy director Stef Feldman said Biden "strongly opposed the Keystone pipeline in the last administration, stood alongside President Obama and Secretary Kerry to reject it in 2015."
Feldman said Biden would "proudly stand in the Roosevelt Room again as President and stop it for good by rescinding the Keystone XL pipeline permit."
To paraphrase Bill Clinton, it depends on the fair meaning of the word "fair."
And then we have this from the same article...
BEGIN QUOTELast week, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau issued a statement expressing his disappointment with Biden for revoking the pipeline permit while Alberta Premier Jason Kenney said he was "deeply disturbed" and threatened legal action.
Kenney noted that the U.S. is Canada's most important ally and trading partner.
"That's not how you treat a friend and ally," the provincial leader said in a statement posted on Twitter.
Prime Minister Trudeau also mouthed some standard liberal comment about "climate change," formerly called Global Warming. But he emphasized his concerns about the effect of the loss of cold, hard cash lost from Canada's economy. I believe that PM Trudeau, although a standard politician, knows that a non-petroleum economy is an economy without plastics - and an economy that cannot be created by governments overnight or perhaps ever.
Three old sayings come to mind.
The first is the old saying, quoted by Marxists, states "To make an omelet, one must break some eggs"
The second dates from Roman Times, states "There is no honor among thieves."
the last one is a quote from Oscar Wilde, paraphrased by veteran of the
military and both President Bushes' administrations, the late Brent
Scowcroft, who stated, "In politics, a friend is someone who stabs
you in the front."
