Moonbattery.com readers owe a special thanks to John Kerry. Over eight years ago, when he was nearly elected president, I flew into such a rage that I had to start this website to let off steam lest my head explode. At the time, I thought voting for this lying traitor was the most profoundly disgusting act an American citizen could conceivably perform, although the rise of Barack Hussein Obama was to prove me wrong. As Secretary of State, Hanoi John is remaining true to form:
Secretary of State John Kerry gave his first major foreign policy speech [yesterday]. In his address, delivered at the University of Virginia, he discussed tackling climate change.
In case any liberals are reading, it should be pointed out that global warming is not real. There has been no global warming for over 16 years now. That’s why liars like Kerry now call it “climate change” — so that they can never be proven wrong, since the climate has always changed and always will. The purpose of pretending that climate change has something to do with the government is to justify imposing higher taxes, wealth redistribution (a.k.a. “climate justice”), senseless restrictions that harm the economy, and ultimately, Soviet-style centrally planned industrial policy, inflicted at an international level.
“We as a nation must have the foresight and courage to make the investments necessary to safeguard the most sacred trust we keep for our children and grandchildren: an environment not ravaged by rising seas, deadly superstorms, devastating droughts, and the other hallmarks of a dramatically changing climate,” said Kerry, according to prepared remarks.
While Kerry fantasizes about science fiction scenarios, America’s adversaries — who unlike global warming are quite real and relevant to Kerry’s position — snicker and lick their chops.
No wonder it took Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov six days to bother returning his call. John Kerry doesn’t exactly command respect. Under its current government, neither does the USA.
