There’s no fixing stupid. John Kerry, who is back in the White House along with most of ex-President Obama’s inner circle, re-implementing Obama’s agenda almost exactly, just reenacted the infamously out-of-touch line “Let them eat cake!” He told all the oil workers that the administration that just killed their entire industry will soon give them better-paying jobs working from home.
As meth dealers, I presume.
John Kerry, Gina McCarthy: Laid-off Oil, Gas Workers Will Have ‘Better Choices’
By Joel Pollack, 27 January 2021
Climate Envoy John Kerry and National Climate Advisor Gina McCarthy told reporters in the White House briefing room that oil and gas workers who are laid off as a result of President Joe Biden’s new climate policies will find “better” jobs.
Biden caused widespread layoffs — and potentially tens of thousands of lost future job opportunities — when he revoked the Keystone XL pipeline permit, and suspended oil and gas leasing on federal lands, on his first day in the Oval Office.
Asked by a reporter what their “message” was to workers in the fossil fuel industry, Kerry and McCarthy promised that workers could find new jobs in “green” industries — or that they could benefit from New Deal-style work programs.
New Deal-style work programs? Somebody knows a massive economic depression is about to hit. Then again, his buddy is the one actively making it happen so it’s not a prediction. It’s a policy.
Kerry said that President Biden had emphasized the “need to grow the new jobs that pay better, that are cleaner.”
Kerry is lying his ass off to people who 1. know he’s lying to them and 2. have nothing left to lose. Stationing an entire division of National Guard in D.C. is beginning to come into focus.
He added: “What President Biden wants to do is make sure those folks have better choices, that they have alternatives, that they could be the people who go to work to make the solar panels. …. That is going to be a particular focus of the Build Back Better agenda. And I think that unfortunately workers have been fed a false narrative … that somehow dealing with climate is coming at their expense. No, it’s not. What’s happening to them is because of other market forces already taking place.”
Only a professional liar can say that without a giggle.
He said that a worker in a BMW plant in South Carolina could build electric engines, rather than combustion engines.
Because electricity is infinitely renewable with no need for fossil fuel-powered generators?
McCarthy mentioned the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), a revival of a New Deal-era job program, promising that workers who lived in areas where oil, gas, and coal facilities had closed would be able to find work in their own communities rather than having to move to take advantage of jobs in the solar industry or other new industries.
There will be no new industries… but there will probably be new, Chinese owners of our oil fields after their values are artificially collapsed by Biden’s handlers. Biden himself probably thought he was signing a birthday card for his granddaughter.
WASHINGTON, DC—At one point during the flurry of executive orders signed by President Joe Biden, he said, “I don’t know what I’m signing here.”
“Just sign it,” his handlers responded, and he signed it.
Unfortunately for Biden, VP Kamala Harris had inserted a “Do Not Resuscitate” form into the stack of executive orders, making Biden sign his own death warrant.
“It was a very clever move,” political analyst Sam Eagle said of the procedure. “Most vice presidents try to sneak in a DNR order for the only person standing between them and ultimate world domination, but Kamala was savvy enough to get it done on Biden’s first day in office.”
The Harris-Biden administration will now just wait for an untimely accident or Biden playing with his dog again to knock him out cold and complete the transition to the communist states of America.
“It was a good run Joe. Good luck with everything,” Eagle added.
Solar panels were also a focus of Biden’s first attempt at “green jobs” under President Barack Obama’s stimulus. That attempt ended spectacularly with the failure of Solyndra, a company that Biden and Obama had both touted.
They’re doing it again. The same old Deep State has rushed back into power with the same faces and in John Kerry’s case, I’m pretty sure, the same hairpieces.
So many masks in that picture! Gina McCarthy was head of EPA under Obama and is occupying a new Cabinet position under Biden. That is exactly the definition of a Deep State, bureaucrats whose agendas and careers exist independently of their supposed leaders. As for John Kerry, the New York Post has already done my gruntwork exposing exactly how much of Biden is recycled Obama.
Biden climate envoy John Kerry is a lifelong joke
By Post Editorial Board, 23 November 2020
No punches will be pulled today!
What was Joe Biden thinking for his choice of climate-change ambassador extraordinaire?
What was “VP under Obama” Biden thinking when he chose “SecState under Obama” Kerry to redo what Kerry did the first time around? I don’t wonder.
John Kerry is one of the biggest gasbags in American politics, singlehandedly responsible for massive amounts of terrible emissions.
People have been laughing at him since Yale, when “Doonesbury” creator Garry Trudeau was zinging his pretentious, vacuous self-promotion.
We look forward to the anti-carbon lectures from a guy who travels the globe on private jets and luxury yachts.
In 2016, Kerry sold his Nantucket mansion…
…to live in Martha’s Vineyard:
Not counting his D.C. quadruple-decker corner house:
Odd that a man so frightened about rising sea levels would purchase such expensive beachfront properties. Of course, hypocrisy is de riguer for this crowd.
Set aside his deer-in-the-headlights loss as the Democrats’ presidential nominee in 2004. He was a joke as secretary of state under President Barack Obama — off on his yacht during Egypt’s 2013 military coup.
He vowed a crushing response when Syria crossed Obama’s infamous “red line” — only to have Obama pull the rug out from under him and agree to let Russia pretend to take Syria’s chemical weapons away instead.
Hmm, one of Biden’s first decisions was to send the military back into Syria.
Kerry also cluelessly “negotiated” the Iran nuclear deal even as the real talks were being run out of the White House; then he had to pretend to cheer an accord that gave away several points he’d said were non-negotiable, such as truly tough inspection requirements.
Incoming president Joe Biden has said that he wants to rejoin the Obama-era nuclear deal that Trump backed out of. But not every country will welcome the post-Trump United States with open arms—and picking up where Washington left off with Iran, in particular, may not be so easy.
A look at the last year in the US-Iran relationship reveals why. After assassinating Suleimani… While Trump wavered and shrugged in the face of the pandemic’s toll in the United States, he was focused and relentless when it came to making life worse for Iranians. Even as the pandemic exploded, the United States intensified a decades-old sanctions regime, hurting the Iranian medical industry and impoverishing millions of Iranians.
The author isn’t wrong. Trump grossly mismanaged the COVID scare, primarily by refusing to recognize it as a scare tactic and failing to recognize that Fauci was the creator of COVID:
But when it came to Israel, Trump was decisively Zionist.
Communist China on Monday demanded the United States to return to the Iran nuclear deal and end all sanctions placed on Tehran under President Donald Trump’s watch once Joe Biden moves into the White House.
“The US shall return to the Iran nuclear deal as soon as possible and without any preconditions, and the US should also scrap all sanctions imposed on Iran, other third-party entities and individuals,” Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said in a video conference with other four signatories of the 2015 nuclear accord.
I don’t know what China’s interest in Iran is… seems to me they could make bank defying American sanctions pretty easily… but I do expect President Xi-den to obey in short order.
Or should I say, John Kerry who worked on the original Iran treaty will be quick to obey. Seeing as it was his idea to begin with. What a small world it is at the top!
And he helped craft the 2015 Paris climate accord — a performative non-binding “triumph.”
The Kerry-initiated Israeli-Palestinian peace talks of 2013-14 went absolutely nowhere. He later blasted President Trump over moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem, insisting it would cause “an absolute explosion” — when it actually helped bring unprecedented Arab-Israeli rapprochement.
I don’t really understand the significance of the embassy’s relocation because it’s literally not my problem. I could not care less about Old World people with their millennia-long Old World grudges. Take it outside my country, you… foreign-born rulers making it my problem… sigh.
The only conclusion you can draw is that Biden, having vowed to make fighting climate change a top priority, simply wants someone who’ll look like he’s trying hard — but won’t actually get anything done.
We should be so lucky. The old gang is back in town, however, with the same agenda… meaning, the same handlers… and the Obama years were suck even before accounting for our new, globalist-managed command economy.
Four years of Trump has changed nothing at all. He did nothing, literally nothing, to stop these scum from coming back.
Ah, well. War is in the air and if John Kerry doubles down on his tone-deaf Elitist arrogance just a little more, the war will happen while Heritage
France America is still capable of fighting it.
