WaPo to the rescue of Biden the Boob. The man who kills good jobs.
In Barack Obama’s third term, Joe Biden continues the job-killing legacy of his former boss–Baby Black Jesus.
Aside: Joe Biden no longer need pay homage to Barack Obama, as Biden got 12 million more votes than Obama at his most popular. For Democrats who claim the election was legit, this proves they really ARE racists.
Back to the story…
Ted Cruz tweeted that Biden killed roughly 11,000 construction jobs his first day in the White House. Biden accomplished this presidential first when he cancelled the Keystone XL pipeline project.
WaPo responded quickly, coming to aid of Biden the Bozo. The fake news organization immediately “fact-checked” Cruz, giving him “Two Pinocchios”.
WaPo rationalized their rating of Cruz’ comments based on the notion that Cruz didn’t mention that those construction jobs are temporary.
“Cruz cited a real estimate of approximately 11,000 jobs, but he left out that they were all temporary,” the Post concluded. “In the same report, the State Department said the Keystone XL pipeline, if built, would require only 35 to 50 permanent positions.”
“The missing context is key here, obscuring half the story. Cruz earns Two Pinocchios.”
Understand that a large swath of Obama’s job creation was in temp jobs.
Moreover, what job is permanent, besides a few judges? The fact is NO regular job is permanent. You may be gainfully employed today, and that job gone tomorrow. And as for the construction industry, those jobs are seasonal for the most part.
Thus, Ted Cruz fired back at WaPo on Twitter:
“WaPo confirms that YES, on his first day in office, Joe Biden destroyed 11,000 jobs (including 8000 union jobs). But, it says, they’re construction jobs so are only temporary. ALL construction jobs are temporary. President still shouldn’t destroy them.”
WaPo confirms that YES, on his 1st day in office, Joe Biden destroyed 11,000 jobs (including 8000 union jobs).
But, it says, they’re construction jobs so are only temporary.
ALL construction jobs are temporary. Presidents still shouldn’t destroy them. https://t.co/ua0jJFrl23

Biden is a demented clown. And he has no idea what he’s doing. But, according to his people, Biden has a plan.
Clean Energy Jobs
Biden’s plans to address climate change include a huge commitment to clean energy. In fact, Biden’s promised 10 million jobs related to this goal. He wants to build out a a “modern and sustainable infrastructure” toward his continued goal of reaching a carbon-free energy sector in the US by 2035.
It sounds so pretty on paper, doesn’t it? But the reality is, clean energy comes at a cost. And if Biden’s paying anything like Obama paid, it’s not worth it.
In 2013, Kevin Jackson wrote of Obama’s epic failures in green energy loans:
Geez can this guy create losers. Michigan maker of vans for the disabled, Vehicle Production Group (VPG), who received a $50 million Energy Department loan has gone the way of the dinosaur.
The not-so-green company stopped operations, because it could not meet the minimum requirement financial obligation to maintain its government loan, according to former CEO John Walsh.
About 100 of the staff were laid off, and the offices closed, though the company has now officially filed for bankruptcy.
If only the bleeding had stopped there. In 2017, I chronicled the $150 BILLION wasted on green energy to end up with a mere 1% gain.
And yes folks, I meant for that to be a bold statement. On what planet does that seem like a rational expenditure?
Going green became the catchphrase for government larceny under Obama.
The man put PT Barnum to shame, as he billed himself as a friend to the environment. Thus, Obama preached about renewable energy and sustainable sources.
As the saying goes, “There’s a sucker born every minute,” so Obama suckered many Americans.
In fact, Obama spent nearly $40 billion a year on green energy projects. This is an amazing figure, particularly considering all America got for the money.
The Solar Letdown:
For decades, green energy supporters touted solar energy as the answer. However, the solar energy industry cannot support itself without massive government subsidies. The average homeowner would need a $30,000 system just to save $2,000 a year. And who really knows what the savings are, given the Obama administration’s “fake data.”
Regardless, even using their numbers it would take 15 years just to recover one’s initial investment. Since the average home owner stays in their house less than 13 years, a buyer never recovers his or her investment.
If you want more of the numbers, just click here. Basically, leftists stood buy while more than forty companies took money in the name of creating green energy.
Fox Nation compiled a list of the failing energy companies along with the amount of government funds at their disposal. Most of these companies had millions thrown at them:
- Evergreen Solar ($25 million),
- Schneider Electric ($86 million)
- Johnson Controls ($299 Million)
Other companies actually received billions of taxpayer funds.
- First Solar (1.46 billion)
- Sun Power (1.2 billion)
- And many others.
This is the kind of attack from within we barely survived for eight long years. Now, our short reprieve has ended. And Obama part 3 is starting out like most sequels- an even bigger disaster than the original.
