Green Group Influencing Biden Admin Has Deep Ties To Chinese Government

Green groups' ties to China will be 'top priority' for House Republicans after midterms, GOP spokesperson says


The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), a major U.S. green group that has influenced Biden administration policymaking, has deep ties to the Chinese government.

The NRDC, a non-profit organization based in New York City with total assets exceeding $450 million, has worked on climate issues extensively in China since the mid-1990s and several of its top officials have worked for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) or government-sponsored institutions. 

The NRDC maintains a close working relationship with President Biden's administration. The NRDC's former president, Gina McCarthy, served as Biden's climate czar up from January 2021 until earlier this month. Current president, Manish Bapna, has attended at least two White House meetings, visitor logs reviewed by Fox News Digital show. 

The NRDC regularly communicates with Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry's office on policy issues, according to internal State Department emails obtained by the watchdog group Protect the Public's Trust and shared with Fox News Digital. 

On its website, the NRDC highlights its collaboration with a "wide range of Chinese and international partners" to boost green policies and "fortify" environmental regulations in the country.

The NRDC, though, rarely condemns the communist government in China despite the nation's massive world-leading carbon footprint and its commitment to fossil fuel energy. China accounts for about 27% of total global emissions — nearly tripling the total in the U.S., the world's second-largest emitter, according to Rhodium Group — and continues to approve and construct a large amount of coal power plants.

They call them Watermelons.

Green on the outside, Red on the inside.

Funny how a group with 450 million in assets, pushes to make Gasoline 7.50 a gallon the first year Biden is in office, and has close ties with the CCP. Then, out of nowhere, this ‘Green’ party has virtually no comment as China burns through oil and gas, and ESPECIALLY coal at enormous rates.

In a way it sad that people can’t see these groups, like BLM and the “Greenies” for what they really are for.

I hope no one is surprised by this.
Goes a fair way to explaining why the same greenies who push a new technology also push depriving us of domestic resources to build that technology.
It’s all about empowering China at the expense of the West.
Eff China!

Chinese military at Biden inaugural

PHOTO: Chinese Military-Linked HDI Chairman Attended Joe Biden’s Inauguration
By Andrew White
December 27, 2021 at 7:50am

The Chinese military-linked Humpty Dumpty Institute Chairman Dr. Al Khalafalla attended the exclusive inauguration of Joe Biden on January 20, 2021.
National File has learned that Dr. Al Khalafalla, Chairman of the Epstein and Chinese military-linked Humpty Dumpty Institute, attended the highly exclusive inauguration of Joe Biden, as revealed in a tweet posted by Khalafalla four days after the event with the caption “New era …”

Traditionally, the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies (JCCIC) would distribute 200,000 tickets for the official ceremonies at the Capitol and provide ticket bundles to members of Congress to distribute out to others. For the 59th Inaugural Ceremonies, invitations members of Congress were limited to themselves and one guest.

The excuse for such a limited attendance was partially blamed on COVID-19, as well as the January 6 riot that resulted in extremely heightened security at and around the Capitol.

With the Biden administration being ushered in through tens of thousands of National Guard troops, officials at the time urged Americans to stay away from Washington D.C. and watch the ceremony remotely.

To substitute for the lack of hundreds of thousands of enthusiastic American voters, nearly 200,000 little American flags were placed in the National Mall instead.

As National File previously reported, members of Congress are now distancing themselves from the organization currently chaired by Khalafalla after National File had reported on the HDI’s ties to the Communist Chinese back in November.

Republican Rep. Gus Bilirakis claimed to have submitted his resignation from the HDI after learning of their links to the CCP and Chinese military. “I agreed to work with your organization to educate people on religious persecutions taking place throughout the world and to be an advocate for freedom,” Bilirakis wrote in a letter the HDI. “So, you can imagine my alarm and distress when I learned about recent revelations of HDI’s connections to the Chinese Communist Party.”

“It is particularly abhorrent to me to be associated with an organization that has ties to a government widely known to actively support infanticide, engage in forced sterilization, exploit slave labor, and persecute religious minorities and political dissidents,” Bilirakis added.

The HDI is proudly partnered with the Taihe Institute, a Beijing headquartered “think tank” headed by several high-level party members and Chinese military officials. The obscure and suspicious organization claims to have “research centers” in the United States.

One could find it particularly alarming that the Chairman of an organization so deeply involved with global elites, Chinese military officials, and CCP members, had attended the exclusive and limited inauguration of the President of the United States, given that he had previously attended a Chinese military-styled ceremony that involved him, along with other HDI and CCP members, bestowing a decorative basket of flowers before a tall statue of Mao Zedong at what appears to be the birthplace of communist Chinese dictator in the Shaoshan, Hunan Province of China.

In the video above, HDI Chairman Khalafalla can be observed with Taihe Institute Chairman Binge Ping, former HDI Director and current Taihe Fellow Ruby ‘Yuyun’ Wang, HDI

Director Joseph Merante, and several CCP and PLA members. The same HDI and Taihe Institute leaders have also been photographed in a closed door meeting alongside Congressional Democrat Reps. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Hank Johnson.

To add, HDI worked with the Taihe Institute on their first annual Taihe Civilizations Forum held in August 2017. HDI leadership was present for all of Taihe Institute’s forums, except the one held in 2021. The forums appear to host discussions surrounding United Nations-style typical global elite talking points, transhumanism, artificial intelligence, and robotics.

In 2018 the Taihe Institute released a bizarre promotional video for their forum that year which talked questions like: “What kind of individual rights can we grant to human-like robots in the future?,” “Will artificial intelligence replace human labor?,” “Will human thought be captured in the future?,” “What does it mean to be human in the future?,” and “Can I live forever?”

Biden’s inauguration was notoriously limited in size and scope. National File is unable to confirm how the HDI Chairman was provided with a ticket to the ceremony. However, Khalafalla has frequently boasted what appears to be his tightly knit relationship with Democrat Rep. Bennie Thompson, the current chair of the sham January 6 Committee and House Homeland Security Committee in recent months.

I had the pleasure of hearing Gina McCarthy speak back in June at my daughter‘s commencement. I bit my tongue throughout as it was not about her or me but the graduates.
