My latest in PJ Media:
John Kerry, who counts the disastrous Iran nuclear deal among his accomplishments, is Old Joe Biden’s man on climate change hysteria, but Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) has revealed that even among a staff that includes the likes of Pete “Mr. Mom” Buttigieg and Jen “Yes, I Think You’re Stupid” Psaki, Kerry is a lowlight, or worse. “For weeks,” Rubio wrote at FoxNews.com on Friday, “rumors have swirled in Washington about President Joe Biden’s climate czar John Kerry and his opposition to taking concrete action against the Chinese Communist Party’s use of slave labor. Now, we may have an answer about his reluctance to take action: according to a new report, Kerry and his wife have at least $1 million invested in a Chinese investment group called Hillhouse China Value Fund L.P.”
That’s bad enough in itself. At a time when China is increasingly aggressive in the face of Biden’s handlers’ obvious weakness, no official of the United States government should have any dealings with Chinese investment groups. And as Rubio notes, “it gets worse.” He points out that Hillhouse is a “‘top shareholder’ in a Chinese technology company called YITU Technology, which was blacklisted by the Trump administration in 2019 for being complicit in the surveillance, detention, and repression of Uyghurs and others.”
Rubio states the import of all this succinctly: Kerry, he says, “appears to be profiting from slave labor.”
Kerry’s apparent conflict of interest has immediate domestic consequences. “Now it makes sense,” Rubio continues, “why he is actively working against my Uyghur Forced Labor Act, which would make it impossible for products made with slave labor in Xinjiang, China to be imported into the United States. Kerry has been working against my legislation, and has convinced President Joe Biden to stay silent on the bill.”
Rubio adds that Old Joe “now has a choice: stand by the man profiting from slave labor or fire him.” He says: “It should be an easy choice, but the Biden administration and some Democrats are so desperate for a climate deal with the Chinese Communist Party that they are willing to ignore the regime’s use of slave labor.”
Sure. It is indeed an easy choice, and the choice Biden and his handlers will make will be to back Kerry, ignore Rubio’s criticism, and, if the heat rises too high, send Jen Psaki out with some ridiculous diversionary tactic to turn the attention of an already sycophantic press away from anything that could possibly paint either Biden or Kerry in a negative light.
There is more. Read the rest here.
