“Insulting And Disappointing” Looks Like Several Unions Are Feeling Voter Remorse After Biden’s First Day

(Liberty Bell) – During the 2020 presidential campaign, unions, for the most part, went all in for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Now they’re feeling firsthand just how much Biden and Harris care about the blue-collared, union working men and women in the US and even Canada.

Barack Obama was certainly right when he famously said that elections have consequences. The unions will now have to suffer under the consequences of their support for Joe Biden.

The tragic part is, while union higher-ups were in support of Biden, many of their actual workers supported President Trump. They were smart enough and informed enough to see that Joe Biden would not, in reality, be good for their futures and they were right.

On his very first day in office, Joe Biden sent the message loud and clear: good-paying union jobs are of no consequence to him and his administration if they stand in the way of fulfilling the far-left’s radical agenda to curb “climate change.”

Against actual science and facts, Joe Biden immediately canceled the Keystone Pipeline XL which not only resulted in the loss of upwards of 50,000 high-paying jobs but will now force the US and Canada to once again rely on foreign entities for oil.

It was a slap in the face to Canada and to the unions.

TC Energy Corp., the Canadian company that shares ownership of the pipeline with the Alberta government had projected an estimated 10,000 jobs would be created in 2021 alone due to the construction of the pipeline. That’s in addition to the already 1,000 established jobs the pipeline has created.

Once the pipeline was complete, an estimated 42,000 jobs were expected to be created. That’s no small number but now Joe Biden alone has ensured it will never come to fruition.

Several unions spoke out after Biden’s actions, many of which used to be proudly pro-Trump.

“In revoking this permit, the Biden Administration has chosen to listen to the voices of fringe activists instead of union members and the American consumer on Day 1,” Mark McManus, the president of the United Association of Union Plumbers and Pipefitters said in a statement Thursday.

“Sadly, the Biden Administration has now put thousands of union workers out of work. For the average American family, it means energy costs will go up and communities will no longer see the local investments that come with pipeline construction.”

When we take a stroll down memory lane, however, we find that the United Association Union actually supported Joe Biden last year and pushed his agenda numerous times:

The North American Building Trades Unions are also expressing their disappointment and frustrations with Biden’s canceling of the pipeline.

Union president Sean McGarvey issued a statement Thursday saying his union is “deeply disappointed in the decision to cancel” the pipeline permit on Biden’s very first day in office.

They called out “environmental ideologues” who have “now prevailed” and put over a thousand union workers out of their jobs.

His statement went on to say that Biden’s first day in office was “filled with hope and optimism for so many Americans and people around the world” but in the end he was forced to acknowledge that Biden’s actions have caused “uncertainty and anxiety” in the midst of the pandemic that has already caused enough destruction to the livelihoods of millions of Americans.

However, just like the UA, this union also endorsed Biden last year and heavily promoted him. When Biden “won” the election they celebrated him as being the most voted for president in US history.

The Laborers’ International Union of North America has also issued a statement saying that Biden’s decision to cancel the pipeline is “both insulting and disappointing” and will result in thousands of their union workers to lose out on “good-paying, middle-class family-supporting jobs.”

“By blocking this 100-percent union project, and pandering to environmental extremists, a thousand union jobs will immediately vanish and 10,000 additional jobs will be foregone.”

The LIUNA, however, was also all in for Joe Biden last year:

The union certainly was right. Elections do matter. Now they are living with the very real consequences of their decision to support Biden. Their support of Joe Biden has come at the cost of literally thousands of good-paying jobs.

Joe Biden is just getting started, too. He has no concern whatsoever for Americans’ jobs. The loss of these jobs is surely tragic and these workers only have their union leaders to thank for their ignorant and blind support of a man who was so obviously never going to do a darn thing for union workers if elected.

  1. This guy should’ve fitted or an orange jumpsuit or a straight jacket” “Our Freedoms are History” with “Lunch Bucket Joe”! “He belongs on “Let’s Make a Deal” because he and Hunter are great at it”!

  2. “We have put together, I think, one of the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the History of American Politics”! “Joseph R. Biden, Jr. 11- 24-2020”! “This Individual is a PUPPET from the Obama Destruction Administration”! “C’mon man”! “This guy is “FULL” of “Certified BULL SHIT” and “LIES”! “Now Biden kept his promise to put you in the “Cheese Line” and the “Church FOOD BANK LINE”! “C’mon man”! “Give me a break”! “He told you what his plan was when he exited the basement”! Quote me! Redress his Actions abs exercise your First Amendment Claus!

  3. I was an active member of the Steel Workers Union for 25 yrs in a Right to work State. Nobody told us who to vote for, and to be honest most of my co-workers always voted Republican. Tennessee is a Red State. I would never vote democrat….and after the past four years of Republican spineless RINO fails, I doubt I would vote Republican again. Northern union members seem to vote more Democrat and Union party line. Unions can be a good thing, but they can also be detrimental. Corruption has always been a problem, as with any organization, including political parties. It is what you make it. I truly hope President Trump will form a new Patriot Party. It’s time has come.

  4. I am truly sorry for the Union Members and Workers that have lost and will continue to loose their jobs. One could only hear the words of Joe Biden while he was campaigning, and you could understand his position on many issues. He will put certainly put legislation before Congress that will take us back to Obama times and many restrictive regulations across the USA.
    One can only hope that everyone that has been impacted by these changes votes in the Mid Terms and gives some control to a government that will reflect “Checks and Balances” for all of the USA.

  5. No sympathies for the demons. Demons are so sure of their convictions and proud of their methods, they do TELL YOU WHAT they are going to do.
    The sheep who voted for the demons, hoping to get a freebie-life from a parental government are now crying because their pseudo-parent disappointed them. Now they may still get a few freebies, but they’ll make up for it in higher costs for everything else the government won’t give away.
    The unions who failed to listen or trust the actual words of the demon leader, who on MANY occasions said he would KILL the oil industry, should now just be silent and accept their fate. I hope all their members walk away from them. The members certainly don’t have money to pay them now anyway, do they? Serves them right.
    Demons eat their own. One day that might sink into some dummycrat skulls. But, it’s too late now anyway. The demons own all of government, and most-likely will never let it go. They will be in a big hurry to pass many new laws protecting their hold on government, so there’s really no point in voting again. It would only be political theatre anyway. They fixed it right in front of everyone’s eyes, and no one did anything about it. The demons have infiltrated all branches of government, and no one will pay for their crimes against the people. The Bigot and The Whore of Babylon will use their power to protect their criminal family and friends, and the nation will become their kingdom. The people will become their serfs.
    Trump warned, but the GOP ignored. The demons would not have gotten as far without the help of the GOP.
    Now, the only way to save the republic is physical war. Patriots should prepare and stock up on essentials now before the demons take more rights away.

  6. Want your pipeline back? Hound your senators and representatives. Tell them you believe the election was a fraud and you want it overturned. If they don’t you have the power to remove them and elect someone who will. Stand up for your rights and your country before its to late!

  7. As a member of The UA, I was strongly in disagreement that we were backing Biden. I knew this would happen and I even sent an E-Mail to Mark McManus expressing my disapproval. But, of course, I was not responded to. Now many of my union brothers and sisters are laid off. And what I can’t understand Biden said he was going to do this, and unions still back him. Biden is not for the middle class. He’s a puppet of the far left, and a moron. The American people, I believe, didn’t vote for this and didn’t vote for Biden. The fix was in.

  8. These unions get what they deserve. Trump warned them but they wanted to play the political game with the marxists and they got what they wanted. Good luck to all of you unions that put this asshole in. You hurt the whole country. I hope these unions go bust!

  9. LMAO…I hope they never work again. Seems like they would have learned a lesson from that black pile of crap. They didn’t. They deserve all the pain they get.

  10. If you don’t do something about global warming your children die, in any case new jobs, and better jobs result. As to pipelines – they create temporary jobs that disappear once the lines are complete. Once again you distort with garbage data and defective analysis the truth. Start telling the truth. Biden won fair and square and he will create more permanent good jobs than the policy of business as usual.

    • You are so delusional on several different levels. Talk about garbage data and defective analysis — that’s what global warming fearmongering has been but you’ve drunk the koolaid. Fair and square election? Hardly.

    • Wow your comment shows your lack of factual information – “garbage data and defective analysis “ ? You’re a fearful from the fear mongering of the liberals and like a sheep you’re going quietly toward the slaughter house . Our elections were not “ fair and square” and thanks to individuals as yourself we have an usurper in the White House who will not put American first but the hordes of criminals illegals that are already here and the thousands that are already at the border clamoring for yours and your children benefits- taking jobs, and committing crimes but hey you voted for him . The man and his entire regime is illegitimate. There’s no way ( Biden ) he got more votes than Obama and twice I didn’t voted for Obama but Obama was more popular than whatever is in the White House right now and that’s a fact.

    • Your showing your ignorance. You said global warming. That’s nature you dope. You want to change nature? Good luck with that. Now man made global warming hasn’t been proven that how much man is affecting our climate because of the data fixing and lies by the left. Which to me means probably very little if they are pushing this down our throats. As to distorting results they say when finished there will be 42,000 job associated with the line. I suppose those could be over blown but there still would be tens of thousands of them.yes the ten thousand jobs to build would disappear but to stop now with all the money already put into it and these people’s livelihoods who work on it on the line and then the cheaper oil prices for all in the end are good reasons to go with it. It’s easy to sit there and post about taking someone’s job away but it would be different if it was your job and you needed that to feed your family. If this was a waste I’d say stop it but it isn’t as far as I have read and seen. This is just more environmental clowns who want us to go back to the caveman days so they can feel good about themselves and nothing more. And then they’ll be the first to yell they can’t charge their new Iphone 78.

  11. You helped Joe Bidrn now bend over and like it!

    He is and always has been a POS and you should have learned when he sold us out…. “well son of a bitch he was gone in 6 hours!” Quid Pro Joe!

  12. It is a sad and lonely outcome for all the thousands of hard working Americans that now have no paychecks to buy their families Food, Healthcare and all the necessities of Life, now just a memory to those Americans! This is just the start to the once prosperous AMERICA that President Trump so Gloriously treated! It is going to be a cold and lonely 4 years that thousands of workers will be living!!
