John Kerry is a very important person. He’s Vice President Joe Biden’s climate tzar who wants Americans to bike to work, install solar panels and cut back their carbon emissions. But those are rules for everyone else, not Kerry. Today, Kerry came under fire once again for flying around in his personal jet and skipping commercial airlines and his response, well it was what you would expect.
“[Flying in a private jet] is the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle,” Kerry said in a Fox News report today. “If you offset your carbon — it’s the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle.”
Kerry is a front-line warrior in the war against the oil industry, fossil fuels and anything else deemed harmful by AOC’s “Green New Deal”, now a Democrat party platform.
After all, Kerry negotiated the Paris Climate Accord.
As Fox News previously noted, the Kerry family owned a private charter jet company from which the longtime Democrat appeared to benefit financially. As late as 2013, his executive branch personnel financial disclosure showed Kerry owning “over $1,000,001” in assets for the charter company Flying Squirrel LLC through his wife Teresa Heinz Kerry, heir to the Heinz ketchup fortune.
Kerry’s financial disclosures from 2009-2012 also showed that amount. In his 2013 disclosure, the former secretary of state reported between “$50,001-$100,000” in rent and royalties for the company. That figure was over $1 million in his 2012 form and between $100,001-$1,000,000 for 2013. Other disclosures showed rental income of over $1 million for 2011, “$100,001-$1,000,000” for 2010, and “$100,001-$1,000,000” for 2008.
