Democrats Versus Pipelines

Parts of the country are running out of gas thanks to the cyberattack on the Colonial Pipeline, which normally transports 2.5 million barrels of fuel a day, comprising 45% of the fuel supply for the East Coast. This provides a mild taste of what Democrat rule has in store for us.

Democrats don’t like pipelines or the precious fuel that flows through them, so you could hardly expect them to take this crisis with the seriousness it deserves. Evil elf Jennifer Granholm, who farcically (and corruptly) serves as Energy Secretary, squeaks inanely that there is no gasoline shortage but only a “supply crunch.” She conveniently blames Covid for gas prices having already been sharply on the rise around the country as a result of Biden choking off oil production.

If a pipeline has been up and running for a while, you notice how valuable it is when it gets taken down. The Colonial Pipeline is not the first to be sidelined by evildoers since Biden took power. Among his first flurry of executive orders, Biden killed the Keystone XL pipeline out of sheer moonbattery, throwing thousands out of work.

It is hard to appreciate the loss of the many things we would have had if not for Democrats. The cost of letting them take power is incalculable.

Speaking of Democrats and pipelines,

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer threatened to seize profits from Canadian pipeline company Enbridge Inc. if the company continues to operate a pipeline through the Great Lakes after a Wednesday deadline.

Gauleiter Gretchen wants the pipeline completely shut down, so its permit was revoked. Whether Michigan has the authority to shut down the pipeline is being argued in court, and Enbridge wants to keep the energy flowing in the meantime. The pipeline supplies refineries in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Ontario, and Quebec in addition to Michigan.

Officials in Ottawa say closing the pipeline would cut off almost half the supply used to make gasoline, jet fuel and home heating oil for residents in central Canada. The closure could lead to higher fuel costs and thousands of job losses in refineries, officials said.

You can’t expect a Democrat to care about the jobs destroyed by the War on Energy.

A treaty prevents pipelines between the US and Canada from being closed except during an emergency. The only emergency here is Cruella Whitmer’s dangerous heavy-handedness. Yet Biden and Granholm refuse to intervene.

Michigan has said the pipeline poses an environmental risk and that any spill from it would threaten the Great Lakes. Enbridge has said that section of the 68-year-old pipeline has never leaked and that it is taking steps to protect the lakes after negotiating a plan with former Gov. Rick Snyder to encase the pipes in a tunnel below the lake bed.

This is not about leaks. It is about ideology. Like white skin, pipelines are inherently bad according to Democrat ideology. That’s why they will squeeze them out of existence. If you like the “supply crunch” caused by the Colonial Pipeline troubles, you will love America’s future under Democrat rule.
