Biden Taps Globalist Blinken for Sec of State
And picks John Kerry to serve as special climate envoy.
Joe Biden has gone back to the well of the foreign policy establishment to select his Secretary of State-designate. Biden chose his longtime confidante Antony Blinken, who served as the former Deputy Secretary of State and Deputy National Security Advisor in the Obama administration and as then-Vice President Biden’s National Security Advisor. Blinken is a globalist who worries more about how other countries perceive America than how other countries, especially China, have manipulated multilateral institutions and agreements to the detriment of the American people.
Indeed, Blinken wants to re-engage with the Chinese regime to deal with such global threats as climate change and pandemics. Blinken seems oblivious to the fact that China has made these problems worse in pursuit of its goal to overtake the United States as the world’s number one superpower. China has continued to increase its greenhouse gas emissions to support its economic growth while expecting the U.S to cut its emissions. And China hid the truth about the coronavirus outbreak, which originated in China, during the outbreak’s early days when the virus could have been prevented from spreading worldwide.
Blinken has said that climate change will be “a number one priority” for a Biden administration. To drive this point home, Biden chose former Secretary of State John Kerry to serve as his special presidential envoy for climate. In that role Kerry will sit on the National Security Council, where he will have plenty of opportunity to spout off to a receptive audience that climate change is our preeminent national security threat.
During the Obama-Biden administration, Kerry was a prime mover behind engaging with China to enter into the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. Kerry was swindled then. And now he is back. “America will soon have a government that treats the climate crisis as the urgent national security threat it is,” Kerry tweeted after Biden’s announcement. “I’m proud to partner with the President-elect, our allies, and the young leaders of the climate movement to take on this crisis as the President’s Climate Envoy.”
