Earlier this month, Biden climate czar John Kerry turned a lot of heads with a comment he made regarding China.
He was asked about human rights violations in the country and how the United Stated rectified working with China.
Kerry’s answer baffled many people, more or less saying we have to pick and choose our battles, and climate was the more significant battle to take on.
That answer now seems explained, as reports are blowing up that Kerry and his wife have a massive stake in a Chinese investment group tied to human rights abuses.
Now We Know
Money comes first… we know that to be true with our politicians.
Look no further than the recent cave by McConnell on the debt ceiling, which ultimately kept the market stable.
That move was about protecting his investments and those of other congressional members, nothing more.
As it turns out, Kerry appears to be making much the same move when it comes to playing nice with China.
Kerry and his wife have a $1 million stake in Hillhouse China Value Fund L.P., a top shareholder in YITU Technology.
That company is on the U.S. blacklist for human rights violations against the Uyghur people.
This happened during the Trump administration, citing that the company, among others, was “implicated in human rights violations and abuses in the implementation of China’s campaign of repression, mass arbitrary detention, and high-technology surveillance against Uyghurs, Kazakhs, and other members of Muslim minority groups.”
YITU Technology specializes in artificial intelligence (AI) technology.
According to Just the News, that technology is reportedly being used to “exert control over dissidents and persecuted groups within their borders.”
As mentioned above, when Kerry was asked about working with China on climate, he stated that “life is full of tough choices.”
He continued, “Yes, we have issues, a number of different issues, but first and foremost, this planet must be protected.”
Translation, I have a fortune invested in China, so just leave them alone.
