John Kerry Busted Flying Without a Mask

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

Another example of how Covid rules do not apply to top Democrats.

John Kerry caught maskless on flight, American Airlines ‘looking into’ apparent COVID violation

Passenger who snapped photo tells Fox News: ‘Being an elite hypocrite is hard work!’

Climate czar John Kerry was caught not wearing his mask while reading a book on an American Airlines flight in spite of a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) mandate requiring masks on flights.

The photo, which was first posted by conservative outlet the Tennessee Star, shows the former secretary of state wearing his mask hanging off one ear as he reads a book in first class.

Fox News confirmed the photo’s authenticity with the passenger, who wished to remain anonymous. The passenger shared a photo of his boarding pass with Fox News to confirm he was on the flight.

John Kerry apparently claims his mask may have momentarily slipped.

Agree. Could it be that he was using his “private” jet? The same jet he unselfishly uses to monitor the oceans for sea level rise? …

No doubt intended to be a photo op… which it turned out to be.

He probably had his private jet waiting for his return home.

Oh no, no, no.

Kerry, a billionaire, as is his wife, Heinz, is just sitting there, solving global warming problems.
In reality, he is doing the New York Times Monday puzzle; it is the easiest
It is not an airplane, but a Hollywood mock-up, for an upcoming film about heroic climate fighters.
No mask is required in Hollywood.

You remember hair-do Pelosi?
She did not wear a mask either, when in a nearby salon, after eating $15/pint top-of-the-line, boutique ice cream from her $25,000 absolute-zero refrigerator.

Biden will also be featured in the film, but he will wear a mask in the basement.
That is how he got elected, plus it hides his big grin, every time he thinks how fortunate he was to win the US Presidency, without even campaigning; a huge fake move.

The extent of the election con job had not been foreseen by Trump.
It would made Mayor Daly, of Chicago fame, blush.

Biden is too old to fly.
He has a stand-in, who flies on Air Force One

It’s more than that. It’s simply another piece of the overwhelming confirmation that the whole thing was a fraud, a planned panic-demic, whose purpose is and always was the imposition of the “new world” technocratic tyranny, the Great Reset Takeover, upon the peoples of the world. If Kerry, or any other of the self-elected “elite,” actually believed that he were in danger from this oooooohhhh so Scary virus, he’d have 5 masks on.

I heard Senator Kennedy (R-Louisiana) say this morning that he didn’t know John Kerry, but he was sure he was a nice guy.

No, Senator Kennedy, John Kerry is not a nice guy. Read a little history about this guy.

He’s a traitor to his country, as recently as him violating the Logan Act by dealing with the Mad Mullahs of Iran behind the Trump administration’s back, urging the Mad Mullahs not to make a new nuclear deal with Trump, but to wait until after the election.

Not a nice guy.

Kerry also tried to undermine the Vietnam war Paris Peace Accords by colluding with the North Vietnamese against his own country.

Kerry has a long history of traitorous actions, and he lied about the people who served in Vietnam, calling them “Baby Killers”, among other things.

Not a nice guy.

Yes, that’s the same one. You should read what his Swift Boat crewmen had to say about Kerry and his Vietnam service.

That’s where the term “Swift Boating” came from. Kerry got trashed by his fellow Vietnam veterans during his run for president and it probably cost him the election.

His claims of valiant service remind me of someone else’s claims of having won the Nobel Prize. Until now I wasn’t aware that he had dissed Vietnam vets. The irony made me snort coffee. Fortunately I don’t drink it real hot.

Elite people aren’t properly held to account.

One example is elite high school and college football players. They get away with almost murder. Some people worship the ground those guys walk on. Other people see them as a valuable resource for the school and are afraid of punishing them. As a result, they aren’t properly held accountable for their behavior.

When you’re growing up, your peers will socialize you by calling your attention to your own unacceptable behavior. When you become one of the top dogs, that doesn’t happen as much any more. You get to feel that you can get away with anything. Maybe its more accurate to say that you lose a valuable feedback mechanism.

When I was young, the mantra was that power corrupts (and absolute power corrupts absolutely). I don’t recall having heard that lately. As far as I can tell, there used to be a lot of wisdom floating around that is largely absent these days.

John Kerry would probably be horrified to be compared with Harvey Weinstein. In both cases, we have people who thought they were above the common folk and who didn’t have to obey the same rules. It’s corruption plain and simple.

“The 58-page report, released Tuesday, was commissioned last year by school President Jay Hartzell after a group of Texas athletes, most notably football players, demanded the school drop the song as part of racial injustice protests.” Meaning spoiled player’s tantrum.

Report finds ‘no racist intent’ behind song ‘Eyes of Texas’ [BUT!!!!”…and allowing new alternative versions“] ‘“The report does not have a vindication or a smoking gun,” said panel chairman Richard Reddick, associate dean for equity, community engagement and outreach in the college of education.’ Weasel words, don’t offend either players or donors, who didn’t like this.

First thing needed is to do away with Colleges, started out as departments, of education.

“When you’re growing up, your peers will socialize you by calling your attention to your own unacceptable behavior.”

That was primarily the case when you were growing up. The attempt to stamp out all bullying has resulted in an obvious social change. Looking at the age of the typical anti, it is apparent that the public school social nicety program began to take shape about 30 years ago.

The anti’s weren’t socialized appropriately.

I’ve always had a problem with the “power corrupts” idea. Then I stumbled across Frank Herbert’s description in “Chapterhouse: Dune” that said perfectly why this idea was so disagreeable to me:

“All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it is magnetic to the corruptible.”
The problem is not the power, it is always the person.

It’s a little from column A and a little from column B.

The way it was originally told to me, George Kirkham, a criminology professor, was critical of the way the police did their job. I think he may have subscribed to the theory that police work attracted a certain kind of personality.

Kirkham decided some field work was in order so he took police training and volunteered to be a cop for no pay. After a couple of hard lessons, all the social work theory went out the window and he learned to do the job in a conventional manner. The conclusion was that police were the way they were because of the job. It wasn’t that the job attracted particularly authoritarian personalities.

On the other hand, the Iron Law of Oligarchy points out that organizations are taken over by people who aren’t dedicated to the original aims of the organization.

As Jordan Peterson puts it:
Q: Who will run our Marxist workers’ paradise?
A: Exactly those people you don’t want to run it.

When people get into positions where they lack accountability, it takes a superior person to resist the attendant temptations. As Jordan Peterson points out, the people running the holocaust were otherwise pretty decent human beings. People who haven’t come to terms with their own capacity for evil are living in a fool’s paradise … or something like that.

Flouting! John Kerry was flouting O’biden’s mandate … meaning he’s a scofflaw. “Flaunting” means to display extravagantly or ostentatiously, the way he displays his wife’s wealth.

In this case John Kerry is setting a good example for a number of reasons. (1) Masks worn for long periods have a negative effect on the heath of users (2) Restriction of viral in flow or outflow is minimal (3) It is good that behaviourist tactics to encourage compliance for reasons of control are failing.

Let me add:
(1) The SAME mask worn for long periods. Dental hygienists and assistants wear masks most of the day but change them with each patient.
(2) Level 3 dental masks are a barrier to aerosols and splash when worn correctly.

Another example of how Covid rules do not apply to top Democrats.

I can go back 6 months, a year, two years or more to find a headline that echoes the exact same sentiment and meaning. Take a plaster cast of their carbon footprint for future reference.

Rules do not apply – just ask Doris Johnson; who funnily enough just happens to be a real Johnson. The key lies in identity politics. The great divider that preaches inclusion. How Orwellian is that!

The real question is how do you counter it rather than just moan about it.

Looking back at the worst times, it always seems that they were times in which there were people who believed with absolute faith and absolute dogmatism in something. And they were so serious in this matter that they insisted that the rest of the world agree with them. And then they would do things that were directly inconsistent with their own beliefs in order to maintain that what they said was true.

Personally, I think that photo was done with his approval on purpose to diffuse the hypocrisy claims against him flying private jets to climate conferences. The timing is perfect.

Speaking of perfect timing, the dems are getting a lot of relief from the 15,000 or so deaths from Cuomo’s executive order forcing nusing homes to admit people with the China-virus. That those women came out now is nice timing.

March 18, 2021 11:47 pm

He needs to set an example and sell his private jet and walk or ride a bike. Doesn’t this dunce even see his ugly hypocrisy? Or do the high priests of the climate change cult get a pass?
