John Kerry Fumes Over Private Jet Question, Gets Checked Under Oath | Eastern North Carolina Now

    President Joe Biden's climate czar John Kerry lashed out on Thursday at a Republican lawmaker who made a jest about flying on private jets.

    During a hearing held by a House subcommittee, Rep. Cory Mills (R-FL) began a line of inquiry about Chinese solar panels by addressing the witness, Kerry, with a quip. "I hope it wasn't too problematic for your operational team and your private jet to get here," he said.

    Toward the end of their exchange, Kerry returned to the comment about private jets, a sore topic for him and other world leaders pushing a campaign against global warming.

    "I just don't agree with your facts, which began with the presentation of one of the most outrageously persistent lies that I hear, which is this private jet," Kerry said. "We don't own a private jet. I don't own a private jet. I personally have never owned a private jet. And obviously it's pretty stupid to talk about coming in a private jet from the State Department up here. Honestly, if that's where you want to go, go there."

    Kerry faced follow-up questions from Rep. Michael Waltz (R-FL), who reminded the witness he was under oath as the lawmaker entered into the record a Fox News report from February that said Kerry's family sold their private jet, a Gulfstream GIV-SP, to a New York based-hedge fund after it made headlines for how many trips it took and its estimated hundreds of metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions since the start of the Biden administration.

    Asked if he stood by his testimony, Kerry said that his wife, Heinz ketchup fortune heiress Teresa Heinz, "owned a plane." Kerry said he mainly takes commercial flights, but did acknowledge taking some military flights and a trip on a private jet "possibly once" in a personal or official capacity since taking on the role as climate czar roughly two and a half years ago.

    Pushing back on the suggestion that Americans would see hypocrisy that undercuts the fight against climate change, Kerry added, "We're not asking Americans not to fly. You're trying to create an unequal thing. We're not saying, 'Don't fly.'" Kerry also said he would be "happy" to provide Congress with records about his official, taxpayer-funded travel.

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?

Dictator Biden wants to force average people to have to use expensive and dangerous electric cars. Dictator Biden should be forced to travel in only electric vehicles himself and if the battery catches fire and burns him up, too bad. He should also be forced to travel on either a lithium battery powered version of Air Force One (call it Air Farce One) or in a sailing ship.

So, do commercial jets not leave a carbon footprint, or military jets? I didn't know that if you didn't own the plane, you were green and clean. Mr. Heinz, you are a hypocrite. Do you own an EV, and do you use it? If not, why? Did you know that the company making them is failing because normal people can't afford them, and those same people are afraid for their safety. Too many have just caught on fire going down the road, or sitting in a driveway. An entire shipload of these cars caught on fire and burned in the ocean. Idk, maybe that's not so bad. POTUS needs to convert his beloved Corvette. If we gonna suffer, everybody needs to.
