  • Biden to Uyghurs: Drop Dead ... The administration lobbies against a human rights measure to pave the way for a climate deal

    As Vladimir Putin mobilizes forces on the Ukraine border and Chinese submarines patrol the Taiwan Strait, President Joe Biden’s State Department has made its priorities clear: The slave-made solar panels must flow. Republican senator Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Democratic senator Jeff Merkley (Ore.) introduced a bill in January prohibiting the importation of goods made with forced labor from the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, where a genocide perpetrated by the Chinese government is afoot. It passed the Senate in a voice vote in July. It was more controversial at Foggy Bottom, where we now know that Deputy Secretary of State Wendy...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) went on the defensive this week when asked by FOX Business about preventing slave labor in China. "One of the things that Senator Rubio has said is that the reason why the House has not voted on that Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act is because [U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate] John Kerry has lobbied you and others not to act on it and to slow-walk it, so it doesn’t complicate his climate change negotiations with China. Is that true?" asked FOX Business’ Hillary Vaughn. "No, it is not true, and you know, again, if...

    The Wall Street Journal turned over some of its valuable editorial page real estate to John Kerry earlier this week. Today the Journal publishes three unadmiring letters in response:The comparison by John Kerry of this month’s international climate carnival with the Constitutional Convention was preposterous (“COP26 Prepared the World to Beat Climate Change,” op-ed, Nov. 22). ....The only thing historic about the Glasgow conference was its cost and carbon footprint.

  • Kerry’s Call: Solar Panels Matter More Than Human Rights

    11/13/2021 3:37:31 AM PST · by Kaslin · 24 replies ^ | November 13, 2021 | Will Coggin
    The Biden administration faced a big question: Should it take a stand for human rights during the ongoing genocide of Uyghurs in western China? Or should it mute its criticism to hopefully get a symbolic agreement with the Chinese government on climate change? At a climate conference this week, special presidential envoy John Kerry made the administration’s answer clear: Screw the Uyghurs. When presented with an opportunity to condemn the human rights abuses the Chinese Communist Party is carrying out against the Uyghur Muslims, Kerry declined. Instead, he said he was just “the climate guy” and said condemning China’s detainment...

    John Kerry, President Joe Biden’s climate envoy, said there would be no coal in the United States by the end of the decade at the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow, Scotland. “By 2030 in the United States, we won’t have coal,” Kerry said in an interview with Bloomberg. Kerry is the first Biden official to publicly comment on the administration’s environmental policy since the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill that contained numerous sections dedicated to climate change passed Congress. His aspiration to rid the country of its coal by 2030 aligns with Biden’s deadlines for lowering greenhouse gasses by the same...

    Barack Obama’s former Secretary of State, John Kerry was secretly meeting with Iranian officials to salvage Iran’s nuclear weapons program. After the news broke last week, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee called on G-men to arrest John Kerry for his treasonous acts. Kerry was working against the Trump administration to salvage the Iranian nuclear deal.In May of 2018 former Obama Secretary of State was seen dining with several Iranian regime officials.  Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Trump’s claim that John Kerry violated the Logan Act is “true.”“It’s true.

    Biden administration climate czar John Kerry holds a $1 million stake in a Chinese private equity fund, Hillhouse China Value Fund, that is both invested in a tech company blacklisted for human rights abuses and is a major shareholder in a solar panel firm connected to labor abuses of the Uyghurs, The Washington Free Beacon reported on Monday. Hillhouse China Value Fund L.P. bought last December a 6% stake in LONGi Green Energy, a Chinese solar panel manufacturer, making it the company’s second largest shareholder. Human rights groups and U.S. lawmakers have accused LONGi of sourcing many of its raw...

    John Kerry, who counts the disastrous Iran nuclear deal among his accomplishments, is Old Joe Biden’s man on climate change hysteria, but Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) has revealed that even among a staff that includes the likes of Pete “Mr. Mom” Buttigieg and Jen “Yes, I Think You’re Stupid” Psaki, Kerry is a lowlight, or worse. “For weeks,” Rubio wrote at on Friday, “rumors have swirled in Washington about President Joe Biden’s climate czar John Kerry and his opposition to taking concrete action against the Chinese Communist Party’s use of slave labor.

    Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry said on Monday that President Joe Biden “literally had not been aware of what had transpired” in upsetting France over last month’s nuclear-powered submarine deal the United States did with Australia. “President Biden asked me about it, and I told him, and expressed…,” said Kerry in an interview with French cable channel BFMTV. “You told Joe Biden that it was not the right…,” asked an interviewer. “He asked me. He said, ‘what’s the situation?’ and I explained exactly, uh… He was he had not been aware of that, he literally, literally had not...

    NATIONAL SECURITY GOP Moves To Block Cash to Iran Through Defense Authorization Bill Provisions would prevent sanctions relief and expose Iran's malign activities The sprawling annual defense bill includes several provisions that would block the Biden administration from providing Iran with cash and would require the administration to come clean about any economic sanctions relief it provides to the Islamic Republic. The Republican Study Committee (RSC), the largest GOP caucus in Congress, is codifying its anti-Iran platform in the 2022 National Defense Authorization Act, which funds U.S. defense efforts and is expected to pass through the House this week

    For several decades, we've been harangued by left-wing harbingers of doom, screeching at 140 decibels that global warming — i.e., the gradual heating of Earth's surface, oceans, and atmosphere — is caused by human activity, primarily the burning of fossil fuels that pump carbon dioxide (CO2), methane, and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. They lecture us about the long-term rise of the planet's temperature, caused by our shameful carbon footprints, which we selfishly use to drive our cars, air-condition our homes, and generally enjoy comfortable lives. "How dare you?" They want us to believe that the planet Earth, one...

    After fawning over "movie star" Dr. Fauci, the New York Times has issued another utterly obsequious profile of a liberal hero: John Kerry. Times reporter Lisa Friedman -- the definition of a reporter on the "climate beat" who is just as devoutly "pro-planet" as the left -- treated the failed Democrat presidential candidate turned climate scold as an environmental savior on Thursday under the headline “Kerry Hits the Road With U.S. Sales Pitch To Save the Planet.” The text box painted the long odds against him thanks to Donald Trump: “A tough task after the previous president’s go-it-alone approach.” Kerry...

    New government documents show that John Kerry’s wife, heiress of Heinz Ketchup, has millions of dollars in Chinese investments, leaving Biden’s climate change envoy facing an ethical dilemma. Kerry’s latest filing with the Office of Government Ethics in March shows his wife benefits from an investment of “at least $1 million” in a hedge fund that specializes in private partnerships and investments with Chinese government-controlled funds, the Daily Mail reports. Kerry’s wife, Teresa Heinz, is the widow of late senator John Heinz and heiress to the Heinz family fortune, which is estimated to be worth over $750 million. Kerry often...

    WASHINGTON — Following the quick collapse of the cease-fire in Gaza, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the White House not to force a truce with Palestinian militants on Israel. Sources familiar with conversations between Netanyahu and senior U.S. officials, including Secretary of State John Kerry, say the Israeli leader advised the Obama administration “not to ever second guess me again” on the matter. The officials also said Netanyahu said he should be “trusted” on the issue and about the unwillingness of Hamas to enter into and follow through on cease-fire talks.

    If you wanted to destroy the culture and financial system of the United States, you wouldn’t do anything different than what Joe Biden is doing. Biden has bought into The Great Reset and has even adopted their slogan to Build Back Better. John Kerry made it clear that is where we are headed. Kerry said Americans voted for The Great Reset. Watching George W. Bush today was a bit of an awakening. He’s not just angry about his brother Jeb losing the primary or insults from Donald Trump. Bush is one with the far-left Democrats. Unconcerned about the anonymous people...

    Analysts are portraying this week’s visit to China by U.S. presidential envoy John Kerry as a diplomatic embarrassment, with Chinese leaders giving no ground on Kerry’s appeal for cooperation on climate change and offering him only video meetings with senior officials. “The Taliban got a better reception” when a delegation from the Afghan insurgent group met with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi in Beijing on July 28, noted Anders Corr, a longtime China observer and publisher of the Journal of Political Risk. The chilly treatment of Kerry reflects how much an increasingly assertive China’s approach to Washington has changed in...

    Twelve years ago in autumn, the Year of the Ox according to the traditional Chinese horoscope and a year after the massive 2008 financial crisis, then-US president Barack Obama went to Beijing to propose a megadeal to China. It was a pact about the environment that could include technology transfer from the US to China. The pact didn’t gain traction in China and was finally scuttled at the climate conference in Copenhagen that December. Last week, again in the Year of the Ox, US Special Envoy for Climate John Kerry went to Tianjin to broach the environmental issue with the...

"China already has its own plans and road map for achieving its climate goals," an official on the Chinese side was cited in South China Morning Post as saying. The source said further that Beijing wouldn't tolerate Washington telling it what it should do or not do.

    LONDON (AP) — U.S. climate envoy John Kerry called on China to join America in urgently cutting greenhouse gas emissions and described the international alliances that rebuilt Europe after World War II as a model for fighting against climate change. Kerry challenged global leaders to accelerate the actions needed to curb rising temperatures and pull the world back from the edge of the abyss. “Allies, partners, competitors and even adversaries” must work together, he said during a speech at London’s Kew Gardens, a UNESCO World Heritage site where scientists are working to protect plants from global warming. “The climate crisis...
