Remember when the FOIA was filed against Kerry’s office?
Remember how all the emails and names had been redacted from the report?
What did I say at the time?
To refresh, I stated that the nature of the redactions led me to believe that Kerry was consulting with outside sources on crafting policy.
Well, that bombshell just blew up.
We Knew It!
This week, Fox News obtained emails showing the email train between Kerry’s office and 13 outside interest groups.
Alden Meyer, a climate policy consultant and senior associate at the green group Third Generation Environmentalism, is noted in one of the emails.
Meyer was apparently being consulted with topics of conversation for the G7 summit.
Among the other topics discussed was the Chinese government’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).
If you recall, in June, Biden announced a $200 billion counter to the BRI.
Another email from Jake Schmidt, the managing director of the Natural Resources Defense Council’s (NRDC) international program, showed a meeting that was taking place for a briefing from Kerry’s office regarding overseas fossil fuel finance.
On December 16, 2021, Schmidt wrote, “I’ll send a calendar invite with the Zoom details but wanted to put this on your radar,” Schmidt wrote to other environmentalists on Dec. 16, 2021. “The State Department (ENR and SPEC) plus the NSC have offered a briefing … to brief the community on the International Energy Engagement Guidance.”
PPT Director Michael Chamberlain, who originated the FOIA request, stated, “Just as FOIA revealed that teachers’ unions exerted undue influence in the development of policy regarding school reopening, these conversations seem to provide evidence that large, powerful activist organizations may be pushing the same expensive climate policy that just passed as what some are terming the ‘Green New Deal Lite.’”
He continued, “For an administration claiming to be guided by the science, there are more than a few indications that the input of their political allies may be a bigger driver of policy.
“Little wonder that the American public’s trust in its government is in free fall.”
Free fall? More like completely gone.
This was an easy catch for anyone that was paying attention, and we are.
