Wednesday was “Climate Day” at the White House (isn’t it “climate day” everywhere every day?), and President Biden once again attempted to reanimate the dead policies of the Obama years. He claimed Americans shouldn’t worry about all the jobs his anti-energy policies will kill because they’ll all get good new “green jobs,” doing things like building solar panels (ahem – “Solyndra”) and charging stations for all those electric government vehicles that will be powered by…well, he’ll get back to us later on that.
I expect clueless blather and job-killing policies from Biden. But if we’re going to address climate change, we have to talk about the big ball of hot gas that’s above us all. I refer, of course, to John Kerry.
Kerry has become legendary for his arrogance, pomposity, condescension and unwarranted sense of moral superiority, and all those repellent traits were on full display in his recent comments about the furious union workers who were abruptly left unemployed by Biden’s groundless halt to the Keystone Pipeline project.
Kerry, clueless as ever about how most Americans actually make a living, lectured those poor deluded peasants, “What President Biden wants to do is make sure that those folks have better choices, that they have alternatives, that they can be the people who go to work to make the solar panels” (because who wouldn’t be grateful to trade their current pipe-fitting job for a politician’s promise of a job making solar panels sometime in the vague future?)
Kerry, as always, went on: “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, no surprise, for the past few years. They’ve been fed the notion somehow that dealing with climate is going to be at their expense. No, it’s not.”
News flash, John: They just lost the jobs that they depended on to feed their families, so yes, it’s already at their expense. Of course, their small minds can’t possibly comprehend the vast, planet-controlling vision of their betters, so he has to explain to them that they haven’t really been harmed, just because they’ve been unexpectedly thrown out of work for no good reason.
Maybe he could give them some advice on making better career choices, like “Marry an heiress,” then “Divorce her and marry a richer one.”
Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton summed up the predictable outrage over Kerry’s oblivious arrogance well: “John Kerry—who flies in private jets, owned a 76-foot yacht and several mansions—has the carbon footprint of a small nation. Yet he tells energy workers to ‘make solar panels’ when the Biden administration kills their jobs.” I’m surprised Kerry didn’t suggest that they simply eat cake until those solar panel jobs become available.

Don't you just love it when those who are in office keep throwing out these wonderful ideas on, after putting so many people out of jobs, they can just go and build Solar Panels?
Such clueless people, and to think, they keep getting re-elected all the time.
Makes me question how long they have been stealing the votes.

Is it possible to have a recall election for a President? If so, maybe it's time to start a petition before Biden completely destroys this country!

Kerry is scary bourgeoisie. Biden’s decision to stop leasing in the Gulf and on federal lands could cost 46,000 jobs in south Louisiana and destroy our already nearly bankrupt State. I guess he plans to reemploy everyone to build a bunch of windmill factories. What’s the plan Kerry? Joe Biden doesn’t have one. Meanwhile, people here are going to get hungry and mad pretty quickly here in Louisiana.

Someone should backtrack how some of these elite politicians family got their wealth like John Kerry's ancestors got rich running opium to China and the Bush's (Prescott Bush) was a fan of Hitler and got rich from it as a banker - He also was involved in a coup attempt to overthrow FDR - In November 1934, federal investigators uncovered an amazing plot involving some two dozen senior businessmen, a good many of them Wall Street financiers, to topple the government of the United States and install a fascist dictatorship. I even did some research on Obamas ties to slavery in Kenya after he was elected, but it must be buried pretty deep as I couldn't find it. Not that we are responsible for our past history going that far back, but I find it interesting. Like a relative of mine was hung by the union, could have been related to both of them in Texas. According to my older sister who has researched our linage, we lost 5 in the civil war. 3 union and 2 confederate. I stop by the old grave yard when ever I'm in East Texas and say hello and to save me a spot.

Those skilled worker s are more important than Kerry could ever be. He is one of dumbest people in DC. Can you imagine the conversation between Biden Kerry and Harris. Not an IQ above 100

Kerry is a utterly despicable, ignorant pompous, south end of a north bound "Equus africanus sub. asinus".

Apparently they don't realize that there are over 6000 by products made from petroleum. Where are they going to get their tires from, oh yea from foreign countries that still drill for oil. When are these 1% people think that after eliminating these jobs and not having to pay the taxes the money is coming from. This is the most anti-American administration that there ever was. It is just the 3rd term of Obama.

Each job has a particular skill set that can’t be transferred from one job to another. THEY JUST DONT GET IT. A pipe fitter won’t make a good finish carpenter, a computer geek won’t make a good plumber, and a career Liberal Politician won’t make a good anything. As a retired communication worker who started when party lines were still being used, I can tell you when fiber optics became the new communication norm, I couldn’t keep up with the transition. So my skill set became obsolete and unusable.
