(JustPatriots.com)- Popular Fox News host Laura Ingraham slammed President Joe Biden’s decisions to send climate czar John Kerry to China to work with the communist, authoritarian nation on bringing down its carbon emissions.
How likely does that sound?
Ingraham said that sending Kerry to China would embarrass the United States.
“Sending the famously inept John Kerry to woo the Chinese on climate change is an embarrassment in the making,” Ingraham said. “Everyone knows the Chinese Communist Party will not play ball on climate unless we pay them, and everyone assumed Kerry has gone to Shanghai to negotiate the price.”
Kerry was President Barack Obama’s Secretary of State from 2013 to 2017, and returned to frontline politics under the Biden administration – a third Obama term – to oversee the United States’ climate agreements and initiatives with the rest of the world. Kerry was instrumental in the United States’ return to the Paris Climate Accord, which President Donald Trump withdrew from and instead promoted free market innovation on clean energy.
Ingraham said that the CCP’s term “will include the lifting of any tariffs and other anti-China legislation” and that it would require support for the 2022 Winter Olympics and a “grab bag of other demands.”
“All of which Kerry is totally prepared for, right?”
Ingraham theorized that Kerry would assure his Chinese counterparts that he will go back to the United States and fight for concessions, then brag on television in the United States that China – which is famously uncooperative – is cooperating.
“In other words, Kerry’s visit will allow the CCP to boast that no matter how they humiliate the Americans as they did in Alaska with Blinken, we will always come crawling back to beg for their help,” she added.
And on Sunday, the mainstream press published gushing reports about Kerry’s so-called success.
“The United States and China, the world’s two biggest carbon polluters, agreed to cooperate to curb climate change with urgency, just days before President Joe Biden hosts a virtual summit of world leaders to discuss the issue,” The Associated Press reported.
Kerry reportedly came to an agreement with his Chinese counterpart Xie Zhenhua after two days of discussions. In a statement issued on Saturday, the U.S. and China agreed to start “cooperating with each other and with other countries to tackle the climate crisis, which must be addressed with the seriousness and urgency that it demands.”
A vague commitment, but a commitment nonetheless.
Kerry told the press in Seoul, South Korea, on Sunday that the language in the statement was “strong” – another meaningless platitude – and then said that he agreed with his counterparts on “critical elements on where we have to go.”
“I learned in diplomacy that you don’t put your back on the words, you put on actions,” he said. “We all need to see what happens.”
