Will John Kerry Sell Out Chinese Human Rights to Win a Global Climate Agreement?

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

John Kerry insists he will not compromise on pressuring China to improve treatment of persecuted minorities like Christians and Uighurs, to win a global climate agreement. But I’m not sure I believe him.

Kerry: US ‘hopeful’ it can work with China to tackle climate change

04 Apr 2021 12:14AM

DUBAI: US Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry said the United States was hopeful it could work with China to tackle climate change, despite longstanding disagreements that have affected the bilateral relationship.

“Our hope is that we’re going to be able to deal with yes, China,” Kerry told reporters during a visit to the United Arab Emirates capital Abu Dhabi on Saturday. “President Biden has made it clear and I’ve made it clear: none of the other issues we have with China – and there are issues – is held hostage to or is engaged in a trade for what we need to do on climate.”

China has pledged to become carbon neutral by 2060 while US President Joe Biden’s administration is expected to announce a new target for reducing emissions at a global climate summit on Apr 22.

Given China’s ongoing massive coal expansion, and their open contempt for climate leaders like Greta Thunberg, a reasonable conclusion is that China does not care about CO2 emissions.

The question; Why would China attend a global climate summit, if they don’t care about CO2?

It seems obvious that China will likely use climate negotiations to attempt to silence global outrage at China’s ongoing persecution of Christians and mass internment campaign against Uighurs, lift sanctions, and gain recognition for their outrageous territorial claims and occupation of islands in the South China Sea, regardless of what Kerry wants.

John Kerry is the one who politically needs to bring home a deal, not China – so Kerry is negotiating from a position of weakness. Kerry does not have anything to offer that China cares about, other than concessions on non-climate issues.

Of course, if the terms of the treaty Kerry negotiates are weak enough, China might decide to sign anyway, for the entertainment value.

China won’t even let UN inspectors try to figure out where the virus actually came from. Does Kerry really think they are going to abide by targets and provide accurate data about CO2 emissions?
Of course the Chinese will use the easy marks in the west to make concessions and provide handouts while promising far-flung CO2 goals. It’s all far too easy.
Meanwhile, Biden’s tax increases will be followed by many similar tax-hikes in the EU, Australia and Canada. It’s a “climate emergency”, after all.

Kerry met his match the last time he negotiated with the Mad Mullahs of Iran for the Obama-Biden administration. The deal he made with the Mad Mullahs practically guaranteed they will be able to produce nuclear weapons. That’s why Trump pulled out of the deal.

Now, we have Kerry back in Iran trying to negotiate a new nuclear deal. Nothing good will come from this. Kerry has a miserable track record.

It looks like America and the EU have decided to put the screws to China because of China’s bully boy behavior. As far as I can tell, the stick they will wield is China’s treatment of its Uyghur minority.

Also, it’s obvious to anyone with two neurons to rub together that China isn’t at all reliable on the climate front. Scott Adams quotes the statistic that, in the last year, China installed NEW coal plants whose capacity exceeds the entire (coal based?) generating capacity of Europe. 36:20

Kerry will get his marching orders and he will be a good foot soldier. Whatever his wishes, it’s not up to him.

The way I read the grammar end logic of Kerry’s statement is that no other issue will stand in the way of getting a climate agreement. So the human rights of enslaved and persecuted minorities are insignificant, and the minorities themselves are expendable.

I don’t see how you could read “President Biden has made it clear and I’ve made it clear: none of the other issues we have with China – and there are issues – is held hostage to or is engaged in a trade for what we need to do on climate.” in any other way. John Kerry is stating explicitly that he is not going to let any other issue get in the way of a climate deal with China. All other issues will be ignored.

The deal with China will be very easy to achieve. The terms of the deal are:
1. The USA will destroy its own economy.
2. China won’t stop them.

John Kerry would sell out his own Mother for a temporary advantage. Unfortunately, he also goes back to those he previously sold out for support when he needs their support for another venture. An example would be Swift Boat Veterans.

He threw his own medals over the White House fence, until he said that he threw somebody else’s medals and kept his own when it was advantageous to have medals.

I wouldn’t trust John Kerry to tell the truth If he was asked if the Sun rose toward the East today.

Richard (the cynical one)
Reply to  Peter Davidson
April 4, 2021 3:15 pm

Because the Uighurs are specifically targeted, not only because of their Muslim religion but primarily because displacing and disposing them frees up territory for Chinese resettlement, what you call ‘conflating’ is justified in this case. The reason(s) for persecution of one group may be very different fro that of another. The common thread is the moral bankruptcy of the Chinese government instigating both attacks.

Kerry is always the Idiot. He never disappoints in that regard.
We can expect expect him to do exactly what is counter to US national security interests if it appears to push the Climate Agenda. But Kerry has no role other an advisor to Dementia Joe and de facto US President Kamala Harris.

After the new US Sec State got lectured 3 weeks in Alaska by China’s top diplomat, I think Secretary Blinken now understands the problem he faces representing the US interests as China sees a Weak Man in the White House. The Chinese have summed up Biden as senile, a US President who only says what he is told to say by “advisors” behind the scenes and then is shuffled away to avoid questions he can’t cogently answer.

https://thehill.com/opinion/international/543474-china-goes-to-alaska-to-dictate-terms-and-interests-to-america

We are in a dangerous time, with intellectual idiots like John Kerry pushing the climate scam to the extreme detriment to US national security, while China’s CCP leadership correctly sees opportunity and short window of opportunity it hasn’t ever had, a window that will close in the next few years if it doesn’t act quickly. Forcing a Taiwan re-unification is their number politcal-military goal now. That is not just my opinioon, but the opinion of Adm. John Aquilino, currently the head of U.S. Pacific Fleet, about to become Commander of the unified US Pacific Command in testimony last week to the US Senate. Many other see this problem as much closer than people think.

Regarding the Admiral’s testimony to Senator Cotton’s questions last week, Admiral Aquilino response as reported in The Hill:

But Aquilino did suggest he thinks it is liable to happen sooner rather than later, saying Beijing views annexing Taiwan as its “No. 1 priority.” The rejuvenation of the Chinese Communist Party is at stake” when it comes to Taiwan, Aquilino said. “My opinion is this problem is much closer to us than most think, and we have to take this on,” he added, advocating that a multibillion-dollar fund known as the Pacific Deterrence Initiative (PDI) be put in place “in the near term and with urgency.”

https://thehill.com/policy/defense/544556-top-admiral-possibility-china-tries-to-invade-taiwan-closer-to-us-than-most

The Chinese PLA will likely try to take the Dongshao Island-Atoll first as a preparatory move before going full on an amphibious assault on Taiwan itself. Just last Thursday, Chinese military drones were violating the Taiwanese controlled airspace over the island about 300 miles southwest of the southern tip of Taiwan. Dongshao Atoll is just 160 miles from HongKong and the Chinese mainland, and must be brought under PLA control to secure a Chinese military landing forces’ southern flank in any cross strait operations against Taiwan. China PLA window of opportunity will rapidly close in the next few years as weapons upgrades (new F-16, new missiles, airfield hardening, Harpoon antiship missiles from the US) will make taking Taiwan by force too costly. They certainly must have done all that calculus on costs of waiting by now after all the arms sales that the Trump Admin made last year to Taiwan.

“Taiwan to build up defenses after Chinese drones spotted over Dongsha Island”https://www.taiwannews.com.tw/en/news/4166166

So while we’ve got idiots like John Kerry “advising” a senile US President on acquiescing to China on climate and emissions demands and rolling over on Uighur human rights, the real person who will have to make the decisions is likel to be an Acting President Harris. She will put Ole’ Joe out to pasture with the 25th Amendment this triggering a constitutional crisis and uncertainty in US leadership.

Japan’s Prime Minister is right now flying across the Pacific to meet Ole Joe this next week in the White House to discuss the tensions issues now between US and China and the Taiwan issue. It will be interesting to see how closely Kamala is in those talks. Watch for WH meeting pictures and videos of Kamala always nearby. I suspect she’ll be right there in every photo ready to step in the second Dementia Joe goes off the rails and starts babbling nonsense with the Prime Minister there.

And China’s CCP may know exactly when the DC Democrats politburo plan to bring the removal of Biden to fruition if they have been hacking emails, texts, and eavesdropping on Democrat’s communications as any rational intel analysis would suggest they have done.

Dangerous times indeed.

A little thin on evidence and long on conspiracy, Joel.

If the Dems cheated Sanders to install Biden because they feared America would never vote for a cranky old Socialist, I can easily believe that.

If the game was to get unelectable Harris in through the back door, I guess I could even swallow that. But if that all happened then I’d expect Biden to resign quietly per their agreement and not need any 25th Amendment drama embarrassing him with allegations of incompetence.

Where I must part company is when it comes to the idea that it’s not our home-grown fascists manipulating the system for their own advantage but instead that they are being controlled by the CCP.

Maybe I’m too naive. I certainly hope you’re wrong.

The CCP doesn’t control them. IT simply plays the Baizou like a fiddle for their ignorance. The CCP leaders have come to understand the idiot Baizou like John Kerry at a deep psychological level. When you know your adversary at that level you can play them 3 steps ahead of their every action and thought and make them ultimately look like the idiots they are.

The Chinese also understand Agenda 21, now Agenda 2030 at the UN and are using that Libtard agenda against the US, and useful idiots like Kerry andBiden just are pawns that play their part.

So Rich, Maybe you should go investigate Agenda 2030 and its origins??

I have. I have come to some conclusions. Kerry and Obama really don’t care about the US Constitution or “Protecting it from All enemies, foreign and domestic.” It is globalism for them. They are ready to throw the US Constitution, and the US middle class with it, under the bus for the globalist power trip. Climate Change is simply the Trojan Horse to do that.

I have to agree with you there about who is in control.

If we assume the CCP was peripherally involved in the last election, my guess is that they would rather have a corrupt globalist in the WH than a pragmatic nationalist. In the long run, if you see the world in terms of nation states, then a pragmatist is going to create more problems for them, by strengthening the United States economically. The globalists, in the short run, could cause more problems, but they will eventually end up frittering away the nation’s strength on forever wars, bad trade deals to keep the international alliances together, alienating economic sanctions, toxic social policies and phony global crises meant to cajole nations to work together (eg CAGW).

In the end you might see this as the TWO RULE BOOKS STRATEGY. Where one side plays with an impractical set of goals and assumptions (eg: “decarbonization”, “being on the right side of history”, “rules based international order”) while the other plays the pragmatist game. This was why DJT had to go, as he played by the same rule book. IMHO

The last bullet in the chamber that the globalists have is the ostensibly “democratic” “color revolution”. The primary hallmark of US foreign policy over the last two decades has been “regime change” operations, either by hard military intervention or by soft color revolutions. (look at the list: Iraq, Libya, Syria, Palestine, Iran, Ukraine, Venezuela, etc, etc) So, if you are looking for a reason for the crackdowns /interventions in Hong Kong, Uyghur Region, Myanmar (in addition to it being the third greatest supplier of rare earth minerals) Ukraine and Belarus, it is to protect against future border area “color revolutions”. 

And given what happened in the 2020 election (whether the CCP was involved or not), it is now really difficult to claim that the goal of the United States is “promote democracy” around the world. (lol)

I thought this article did a lot to explain and elucidate all of this including the “economic sanctions” angle:

Obama and the IPCC gave the Chinese communists a blank check to do whatever they want on emissions for the next 9 years. President Xi played Obama like a cheap fiddle.

Trump was the real threat they could never quite understand or anticipate. Thus they were taken aback and off-balance responding to Trump at every turn. The CCP leadership watched with much consternation last year as many large multi-billion dollar defense equipment deals (new F-16s with very good long range missiles, and new shore-based Harpoon antiship missiles) were signed after 3 years of negotiations and contract talks with US Defense industry businesses and what could be provided.

Chinese CCP leadership was mostly pre-occupied thru 2020 with subduing HongKong. The HongKong issue and its subjugation is now firmly behind them, so now their attention is being refocused. A senile US President and an idiot Kerry blathering climate nonsense in his ear may be offering them an opportunity they can’t resist.

Luckily, the climate is about as benign as it has been the last 800 years or there would be much worse problems.

The question; Why would China attend a global climate summit, if they don’t care about CO2?

China stays at the table because it encourages the West to decarbonize in exchange for pieces of paper. And the longer it goes on, the less competitive the West becomes economically:

German industry sounds alarm over EU carbon border tax
A border adjustment tax could shield European companies that support carbon-reduction efforts with investments in green technology from “dirty” competition from outside the bloc.

Germany’s steel industry has welcomed the Franco-German proposal, saying that it could help create a level international playing field.

“I think there is a high risk that we end up with a renationalization of trade if we now try to solve the carbon leakage problem like this,” Kempf said.

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-germany-industry-carbon-idUSKBN1WA1BB

While the CBT is presented as a positive development, it is a tacit admission that Europe is on the tipping point of losing all of it’s heavy industry to Asia because its Green policies are making it uncompetitive.

And the fact that they are even considering it is a sign of desperation, because if trade get renationalized, GLOBALIZATION IS OVER. Thus a choice is going to have to be made between two of the Left’s prized projects. And this is creating division in the West, which is fine by China. Furthermore, once a border tax is implemented, the EU citizens will have to pay a higher price for all they import (which is just about everything) in addition to sky high electricity prices. And if this spurs on the Yellow Vest Protests, which is also fine by China. And lastly, because of the high cost of energy in the EU, the industries that manufacture there will be confined to their own domestic markets (unless subsidized) as they will be uncompetitive globally. Think about a person making a few hundred or a few thousand dollars a year: will they buy the EU product or an equivalent product sourced from India or Asia? And this is also fine by China.

So, to answer the question: The longer China stays at the table, dangling the carrot on stick in front of John Kerry, the weaker the West becomes and the stronger China becomes.

John Kerry insists he will not compromise on pressuring China to improve treatment of persecuted minorities like Christians and Uighurs, to win a global climate agreement. 

“Our hope is that we’re going to be able to deal with yes, China,” Kerry told reporters during a visit to the United Arab Emirates capital Abu Dhabi on Saturday. “President Biden has made it clear and I’ve made it clear: none of the other issues we have with China – and there are issues – is held hostage to or is engaged in a trade for what we need to do on climate.”

If anyone thinks that Harris/Biden or Kerry care about human rights they need look no further than the Harris Hiltons on our southern border.

Regardless of what position Kerry and Biden take on China’s human rights abuses (which includes slavery and extermination) China will continue with its current plans which they negotiated years ago with these same two doofuses.

I hold a small amount of money in a UK investment company. In their latest newsletter one of their staff extolled what he saw as China’s promise to switch to renewables.

The author of the article also wrote that he saw the Communist Party’s power as being beneficial as it made the switch easier to make. When even the capitalists start believing Chinese Communist Party propagada we really are in trouble.

Of course he will. John Kerry has zero integrity and even less sense.

“Will John Kerry Sell Out” the United States in any way possible? Of course! No doubt about it!

The tragedy of the ages is Kerry marching on about global warming as though nothing had happened in the COVID19 pandemic. The truth is recovery will be slow for most countries and a third of the global population and the U.S. will look good until the bills come due and inflation is suddenly a woke issue called affordability.

Is the title a real question, or a rhetorical question? John Kerry has already thrown in the towel hoping no one sees the limpness of his position.

From the article: “It seems obvious that China will likely use climate negotiations to attempt to silence global outrage at China’s ongoing persecution of Christians and mass internment campaign against Uighurs, lift sanctions, and gain recognition for their outrageous territorial claims and occupation of islands in the South China Sea, regardless of what Kerry wants.”

What? No mention of the plague the Chicoms have inflicted on the world? You know, the Wuhan virus intentional pandemic that has caused the mass death of millions of innocent people around the world?

Does everyone want to forget about this? It seems the U.S., the UK and the EU leaders have moved on. Who will call out these Chicom mass murderers?

If you don’t discourage such behavior, then what is to stop the Chicoms from feeling they can attack people in the future and get away with it? They might take this “looking the other way” by Western leaders as a sign that they can attack Taiwan without fearing repercussions from the rest of the world.

At a minimum, the world’s leaders should move the Chicom Olympic games to another site. The Chicoms should not be rewarded for mass murder. Those who do allow them to be rewarded are complicit in mass murder.

John Kerry has always been on the wrong side of history. It all started after idolizing the Kennedy’s and deciding that he wanted to enter politics.

First wrong decision: Join the Navy and become a war hero, because like Kennedy and since WWII that was a prerequisite for high office. Except after he muddled through his short tour in Vietnam, he discovered that veterans were no longer considered heroes.

So then he became a war protester who spit on veterans, which was the cool thing to do at the moment. Except who knew that aligning with a terrorist group would later prove embarrassing?

At least dumping his first wife and marrying better money was a good idea. He’d never have to worry about working for a living ever again.

He was for disarmament in the face of the Soviet empire. Once again, wrong.

He was for the Iraq War before he was against it. Again, behind the curve.

He was all for higher taxes on the rich, but moved his yacht to a cheaper jurisdiction.

Kerry was the architect of Obama’s Iran deal which involved pallets of cash in the dark of the night and did nothing to stop Iran’s nuclear ambitions.

For all this, he got a “lifetime achievement award”. The achievement was for not being laughed out of the public sphere for a long political life of being wrong and a hypocrite.

John Kerry has always been out-of-phase with reality. Want a safe bet? Always bet against whatever John Kerry supports. You’ll be a winner every time.

China will do nothing that does not benefit China and its not problem at all with other countries chasing stupid green ideology if that undermines their ability to compete with China. The fun part is they even get to judge if they done what they wanted as far as the IPCC is concerned .

Kerry would sell the US down the river for personal aggrandizement. He already did, to Iran.

I think we’re going to need extensive satellite photos of China for new and existing coal mine development, new and existing coal power plant sites, and new and existing forced labor compounds. Kerry is going to arm wave them away as out of sight and out of mind. They actually do this all the time. Heck, the share of roads and bridges in the infrastructure plan is only 5% as was the case in Obama’s stimulus. Remember that when you see all those news stories and editorials with photos of highways and bridges. And if you don’t believe the 5% go do the math and budget number lookup yourself, it’s not that hard. Just make sure you are really using stimulus amount proposed for roads and bridges and not other things mixed in like more money for BART.

The question is which Constitutional Rights of U.S. citizens will Kerry sell out to win a climate agreement. I guess 1st and 4th (as ICE vehicles become illegal) for starters, but he’ll try to throw in the 2nd.

John Kerry has been betraying his country for decades. He started with the winter soldier hearings where people who never served in the military lied, said they did and worked to discredit American soldiers. He followed up with his service in the senate and selling out to many foreign countries, followed by being a secretary of state and giving in to Iran and China. He has no respect for America so he will give the Chinese whatever they want. He looks at the majority of Americans and simple peasants. I know, tell me how you really feel about him. Mostly, he is slime and I can’t imagine why anyone would allow a waste of skin like that to represent my country.

In simple terms, the Traitor John F. Kerry never met a nation he wouldn’t sell out.
