Biden Waives Sanctions on Russian Pipeline After Blocking Keystone XL in U.S

By: Bongino.com, May 20, 2021:

Joe Biden infamously canceled the Keystone XL pipeline that would have brought oil to America, provided thousands of jobs, and added billions of dollars in tax revenue because of extremely dubious environmental concerns shortly after taking office.

He apparently doesn’t share the same contempt for pipelines abroad.

According to Axios:

The State Department will acknowledge that the corporate entity in charge of the project (Nord Stream 2 AG) and its CEO (Putin crony and former East German intelligence officer Matthias Warnig) are engaged in sanctionable activities….However, the State Department will waive the applications of those sanctions, citing U.S. national interests.

“The Biden administration has been clear that the Nord Stream 2 pipeline is a Russian geopolitical project that threatens European energy security and that of Ukraine and eastern flank NATO allies and partners,” the spokesperson said. Administration sources contend any waivers applied to sanctions could be removed at any time. They also add that the Biden administration’s goal remains to see that the pipeline doesn’t go into use.

In other words, the sanctions were put in place for good reason and the Biden administration considers the pipeline to be such a serious threat that they don’t want it to go into use… so they’re allowing it to be completed. Does that make any sense to anyone?

The slant from Axios is that this is a sop to Germany, but it actually seems like the nation that primarily benefits from this is Russia. The Russians will make billions, they will weaken Ukraine by depriving them of revenue and Putin will get more leverage over Europe, which will get used to that supply cheap natural gas once it gets going.

Biden’s capitulation to Putin looks weak because it is weak. It’s also ironic. Biden is willing to allow the Russians to make all that money and the Europeans to get all that natural gas via a pipeline even when it’s not in our interests, but a pipeline that helps Americans? Sorry, but that’s not allowed.
