John Kerry was blindsided when he tried to hand Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez this massive win
The former Secretary of State for President Barack Obama, John Kerry, has long been an advocate for the far-left agenda of the Democrat Party.
He’s repeatedly tried to undermine President Trump’s policies, including secretly meeting with Iranian foreign leaders and others to try and save the failed Iran Deal.
But Kerry was blindsided when he tried to hand Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez this massive win.
Kerry recently testified before the House Oversight Committee about so-called “climate change.”
He believes the government needs to pass massive regulations in order to fight back against climate change.
As it turns out, the regulation he supports is the radical socialist “Green New Deal” proposed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
He called it a way to move forward, stating that Ocasio-Cortez has “offered more leadership in one day” than President Trump in his entire lifetime.
Kerry told the Committee:
“Well, let me begin by saying, Congressman, there are a lot of different proposals about how to proceed. I don’t know that any of them are coming from your party or your side of the aisle.
Do you have a plan to deal with climate change? I think you said you’re not sure of the science.
But my focus is on how we’re going to move forward and we all have some differences about one piece of legislation or another, but in proposing in what she has proposed together with Senator Markey, Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez has, in fact, offered more leadership in one day or in one week than President Trump has in his lifetime on this subject.”
Having the backing of Kerry is a major win for Ocasio-Cortez, who is having trouble gaining support from longtime Democrats in Congress.
It signals a shifting tide in the Democrat Party toward far-left socialism.
But while his statement may help Ocasio-Cortez’s street cred with establishment Democrats, other moments in the hearing didn’t go so well.
Republican Rep. Thomas Massie holds a bachelors and a masters degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
He questioned the scientific credentials of Kerry, who has a political science degree, stating, “it’s not really science.”
Massie went on to challenge the validity of Kerry’s “scientific” claims, saying “I think it’s somewhat appropriate that someone with a pseudo-science degree is here pushing pseudo-science in front of our committee today.”
This challenge is especially harmful to the Left, who claim that “man-made climate change” is scientifically proven, and that it is going to destroy the world.
Massie exposed Kerry’s claims as nothing more than propaganda, and in the debate between the two, Massie is the only one with a legitimate science background.
