John Kerry has been profiteering off of compromising his government position in the interest of green energy products for years. His 2011 net worth made him the wealthiest member of the Senate at a minimum and likely much higher estimated $193 million. In May of 2012, the Washington Free Beacon wrote of Kerry:
“The five-term Senator has a well-documented history of investing in companies that would benefit from policies he supports, as well as making conveniently timed and highly profitable trades coinciding with the passage of major legislation and, in some cases, the dissemination of privileged information.
For years, Kerry has invested millions in a number of green energy companies that have benefited from the president’s [Obama] efforts to aggressively subsidize the industry with taxpayer dollars.
These companies include Exelon, which received a $646 million taxpayer-guaranteed loan in 2011 to build a solar facility in California and created only 20 permanent jobs, as well as Fisker Automotive, the fledgling electric car company that offshored its manufacturing operation to Finland after receiving a $529 million federal loan guarantee in 2010.
Kerry “played a key role” in crafting the portions of the legislation designed to offer federal support for green energy projects
The loan guarantees, approved by the Department of Energy, were made possible by funding allocated in the 2009 stimulus bill, which Kerry supported. According to Kerry’s own office, the Senator “played a key role” in crafting the portions of the legislation designed to offer federal support for green energy projects.
The dubious at best dealings are too numerous to mention, and that article was from five years ago. Certainly the free-wheeling investments, including those of the fraudulent green variety, funded with the American taxpayer money as investment capital have not slowed in the years since. A golden opportunity for pillaging was created by Obama and Kerry through their corrupt arrangement with the UN called the Paris climate accord.
Subsidies were to be paid and technology and capacity transferred to foreign governments or more correctly the crooked politicians and corporate interests within them, labeled as aid, in conjunction with the corrupt exploitative “American” politicians and globalists. The money would be stated as being used for projects following the model used for domestic profiteering and were ubiquitous, comprising the overwhelming bulk of the Paris climate agreement.
Most of the 31 pages dealt with the movement of resources and capital out of the United States and into foreign countries, and likely the pockets of those involved in the “projects.” No wonder Kerry and the America-rapists are so upset. In the video interview, Kerry says, “Well, my immediate reaction is it’s an extraordinary abdication of American leadership, it is a shameful moment for the United States to have unilaterally walked away from an agreement which did not have one other country requiring us to do something. It was a voluntary program.”
Kerry Parses For Deception, The Democrat Way Of Hiding What They’re Doing, Targeting and Smearing Their Opposition
Kerry parses words with the worst of them. It was not “one other” country requiring us to sacrifice ourselves, it was the UN, a collection of countries, after he and his partner in treason, Hussein Obama, succeeded in entrapping us into it “voluntarily” in the beginning. Contribution levels were required to increase over time and could never go down. Foreign governments could submit a request for reparations or imaginary problems that we “probably” caused and we’d be expected to fund it, just as we fund the lion’s share of the UN now. it’s hardly benign as Kerry implies.
The lying Democrat says, “The President was not truthful with the American people today, which is a lie as is his claim that President Trump put the American people last. He put John Kerry and the other America-rapists last and that’s what has him fired up.
Kerry then goes on to distort the economic reality, citing job gains in the subsidized “green energy” sector as proof. He repeats the unfounded alarmist talking point of increased asthma, “they will have a harder time having economic growth, he’s made us an environmental pariah in the world, and I think it is one of the most self-destructive moves I’ve ever seen by any president in my lifetime.”
Of course the agreement only supposedly went into effect on Sep 3, 2016, and nothing, aside from Obama forking over a $1 billion in US taxpayer money has taken place. Effectively the situation is the same as it was 9 months ago so this is a lot of unnecessary drama designed to sell the Democrat position and vilify President Trump.
Kerry’s lying about the economic growth, we’ll have more and it won’t have to be subsidized. Government shouldn’t be in the position of creating fake jobs anyway, the marketplace can create real economic growth much better free of government interference. It’s the globalists through their propaganda campaign that have unsuccessfully attempted to make President Trump a pariah and it is John Kerry and the other crooked politicians who were exploiting the American people who see it as destructive and who must now try to recover their losses from the torpedoed illegitimate speculation. That’s a good thing, Kerry, hope you and Mrs. Ketchup lose it all.
