Former Keystone XL Pipeline Worker: ‘We Tried To Warn’ Biden

(Rallying Patriots) – A new report from The Western Journal has revealed that Joe Biden was warned that the decision he made on his first day in office to stop the Keystone XL Pipeline project would come back to negatively impact Americans, according to a former worker on the project.

The Biden administration has been trying super hard to blame the recent spike in gas prices on the Russian invasion of Ukraine, as if that is the sole source of the problem. However, numbers from the federal Energy Information Administration shows that the average price of gas in the U.S. went from $2.284 in December of 2020, which was the last full month that President Donald Trump was in office, to $3.611 just last month. That’s an increase of 58 percent.

“It has nothing to do with the war in Ukraine,” former Keystone XL worker Neal Crabtree said during a chat with Fox News.

“We tried to warn this administration back when they canceled the Keystone Pipeline” that Biden was “canceling national security, foreign policy, and energy,” he continued.

“They all kind of go hand-in-hand,” he added.

“Crabtree noted that long before Russia attacked Ukraine, gas prices had been climbing. At one point in November, the increases created so much political noise that Biden released oil from the Strategic Reserve, saying that could tamp down prices,” the WJ report said.

“Even if we can fix the Ukrainian problem, the prices are still going up,” he stated.

Biden’s “policies have everything to do with the rising fuel prices in this country today,” Crabtree went on to state.

While the pipeline was actually still in the construction stage, it was a definite blow to the energy sector.

“There’s no energy company [that’s] going to spend the money to develop a new lease if they can’t build a pipeline to move the project,” he remarked.

Crabtree then stated that America has the capacity to rectify the current situation.

“When I’d first seen the reports of the president going to places like Iran and Venezuela to ask for more oil output, I said, ‘This is fake news, he hasn’t gone this far off the rocker,’” he explained. “But I guess that’s the path they want to take.”

During an appearance on “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday, Crabtree stated he was not very optimistic that the situation will improve.

“The thing about the Keystone is the workforce is ready to go. We can build this thing,” he commented. “We can have this thing up and going in about eight months.”

“As long as Biden is using this policy of any-way-but-an-American-way, we’re in for some deep trouble,” Crabtree stated.

The alarm bells started ringing back in 2021 when Biden first stopped the construction of the pipeline.

Vice president of midstream and industry operations at the American Petroleum Institute, Robin Rorick, referred to the decision as a “blow to U.S. energy security.”

“The Petroleum Alliance of Oklahoma’s Brook Simmons called Biden’s action ‘the first blow to the North American energy security paradigm we have been building,’ according to the Oklahoman,” the report said.

Biden refuses to take any sort of personal responsibility for the messes he continues to make. He did not take responsibility for the disaster that was the Afghanistan troop withdrawal, nor is he owning up to his part in the current hike in gas prices.

This is typical of the radical left, who have become experts at playing “pass the buck,” while doing their best to wreck the country we all love so much.
