Joe Biden picks non-scientist as climate envoy

Published

on

“Now more than ever, we have to choose hope over fear, unity over division, truth over lies, and science over fiction.” 

Those words came from Joe Biden himself, and just like many other democratic leaders, he isn’t practicing what he preaches. 

Despite his consistent emphasis on following the science, Joe Biden has chosen a non-scientist as climate envoy for the Biden foreign policy team: Democrat senator and 2004 presidential nominee John Kerry of Massachusetts. 

Biden based much of his campaign on his prioritization of following scientists’ recommendations, especially when it comes to climate change. 

“I believe in science. Donald Trump doesn’t. It’s that simple, folks,” he tweeted in October. 

But, instead of picking a properly equipped and knowledgable scientist for the position, he chose the former secretary of state under President Obama who has no scientific background to qualify him as a voice on the subject of climate change. His only experience with climate change appears to be serving as a co-chair on Biden and Bernie Sanders’ climate unity task force, along with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, according to The Federalist. 

It’s that simple, folks.

Notably, Kerry also forced the United States into the Paris Climate Accord while he was secretary of state, which President Trump withdrew from, The Federalist reports. 

Biden, however, has frequently suggested that climate change would be high on his list of priorities and intends to rejoin the Paris Accord. 

Despite his lack of scientific expertise, Kerry accepted Biden’s nomination. 

“America will soon have a government that treats the climate crisis as the urgent national security threat it is,” he said. “I’m proud to partner with the President-elect, our allies, and the young leaders of the climate movement to take on this crisis as the President’s Climate Envoy.” 

Leo Terrell said that Biden’s pick is a step in the wrong direction. 

“Joe Biden is selecting Democratic Dinosaurs like John Kerry,” he tweeted. “I don’t want to go backwards. I want to continue to go forward with Trump policies.”

    Because not only is Kerry a farce, so is climate change. The Paris climate agreement was all a way to pillage America to pay for it’s own demise, and Democrats have been on board with that for years.

Tim Scott Slams Biden For Executive Order Stealing From His Police Reform Bill

Published

on

On Wednesday evening, Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) slammed President Biden for apparently stealing key pieces of Scott’s police reform bill, the JUSTICE Act, which stalled in the Senate in 2020 over opposition from Democrats.

“After the radical ‘defund the police’ movement helped create the current crime wave, President Biden is pursuing a partisan approach to many of the exact same policy solutions I proposed in the JUSTICE Act just two years ago. The fact is Democrats used a filibuster they call racist to block my reforms that they’re now embracing,” Scott said in a statement.

“While my proposal added funding to help local law enforcement comply with higher standards, the Democrats’ proposal sets departments up for failure by issuing unfunded federal mandates,” he added. “Making it harder for police to do their jobs to the best of their ability should be a nonstarter, yet that’s exactly what the Biden plan does. I’m disappointed that the president who campaigned on unity has once again fallen into the trap of divisive politics.”

Among many other similarities between the JUSTICE Act and Biden’s executive order, they both would have created a database for law enforcement officer misconduct, created a database for use-of-force by officers, and banned chokeholds.

President Biden has a long history of presenting other people’s work as his own. When Biden was a student at Syracuse Law School in 1965, he plagiarized 5-pages from a law review journal. During his first failed presidential campaign in 1988, Biden repeatedly plagiarized from speeches by multiple politicians. Even Biden’s “Build Back Better” slogan was stolen from a United Nations initiative.

Biden ‘allies’ concerned with Hollywood lawyer’s ‘aggressive public defense of Hunter Biden’

Published

Hunter Biden

Hunter Biden’s Hollywood attorney buddy Kevin Morris is reportedly upsetting President Joe Biden’s “allies” with his very public defense plan for Hunter. Among the defenses is a plan to question the validity of, and story behind, the New York Post’s exclusive 2020 story on Hunter’s laptop found at a Delaware repair shop.

Another issue of concern, according to a New York Times report, is that Morris gave Hunter a loan totaling over $2 million to pay off his tax debts and take care of his living expenses. “It potentially echoes the cash he received while serving on the board of a Ukrainian oligarch’s company and pursuing deals with a Chinese tycoon, the Times said.”

But President Biden’s supporters want his scandalous son to stay out of the public eye and avoid going to trial. Morris’ tactics, however, are making a big splash. For one, he was recently accused of “spying” on filmmakers who are making an independent movie “My Son Hunter.” The movie allegedly paints an unflattering portrait of the Biden family.

The Times said Morris may try to use footage he shot on the movie’s set located in Serbia to try and “undermine” the film and the laptop. Another potential issue for the Bidens is how Morris came to  be in possession of Hunter’s controversial artwork.

Morris is rumored to be an art collector, and according to one source, Morris might have received Hunter’s art as a gift. The Times cited two people familiar with the story.

Everything is exacerbating the scrutiny the White House has already been under, when it comes to Hunter’s scandals. Hunter and Morris met at a fundraiser for then-candidate Joe Biden’s presidential campaign.
