My latest in PJ Media:
Potemkin President Joe Biden’s handlers have proclaimed that their wildly profligate ($1.75 trillion), pork-laden, astonishingly corrupt spending bill constitutes the “largest effort to combat climate change in American history,” and Old Joe himself rattled off some scripted words to that effect Thursday, saying that the gargantuan, grossly expensive bill will be “the most significant investment to address the climate crisis ever,” and “will truly transform this nation.” But as usual, our political elites are monstrous hypocrites who never hesitate to rub their hypocrisy in our faces, as if to emphasize their complacent certainty that their hegemony is forever unassailable.
The day after Old Joe exhorted us to support this massive investment in fixing the allegedly manmade climate problem, he climbed into his massive well-armored limousine, which is known as The Beast, and cruised around Rome as part of a motorcade that was at least 85 vehicles long. Climate change emergency, eh, Joe?
The Rome bureau chief for the Washington Post, Chico Harlan, tweeted a video of the seemingly endless motorcade, along with the understated comment: “Biden arriving at the Vatican. His motorcade is lonnnnnng.” Post photographer M. Robinson Chavez stated what onlookers were likely thinking, that this extraordinarily excessive display was “Not exactly carbon friendly.”
On the same day, Old Joe met with both Pope Francis and Italian President Sergio Mattarella and discussed climate change with both. It is unlikely in the extreme that either of them was impolite enough to ask Joe why he was riding around making an extravagant demonstration of the efficiency of the gasoline-powered engine when he is trying to soak the American people for $555 billion to shower on green energy projects and is issuing dire warnings about what will happen if we don’t fork over the cash.
This has, of course, been a hallmark of his disastrous faux-presidency. Throughout what passed for his campaign, Old Joe was banging the climate drum: in October 2020, he warned that climate change was “the number one issue facing humanity. And it’s the number one issue for me. Climate change is the existential threat to humanity. Unchecked, it is going to actually bake this planet. This is not hyperbole. It’s real. And we have a moral obligation.”
As is so often the case, the amiable old grifter was lying. If he really believed that climate change was “the existential threat to humanity,” as well as the “number one issue” for himself personally, he wouldn’t have swung into Rome with an 85-car posse as if it were 1955 and gas was twenty-nine cents a gallon. A man who has any kind of sense of integrity or responsibility (which admittedly may leave out Old Joe), if he genuinely believes that we are facing down an existential threat and that he himself has a personal responsibility to do all he can to overcome this threat, does not turn around and casually pretend that the threat doesn’t exist and feed what he thinks is the threat with an extended joyride.
There is more. Read the rest here.
