John Kerry Slams Trump for Being Harsh on NATO, There’s Just One Problem

Published

on

Former Secretary of State John Kerry decided to give President Trump the business for his harsh rhetoric during the start of the NATO summit this week where he called out other allies for not giving their fair share of funding to the organization.

However, Trump’s words seemed to have a deep impact, as some have decided to up their giving and meet the requirements they are supposed to be meeting.

Ironically, Kerry himself once called out NATO allies for the same thing.

Former Secretary of State John Kerry and former Vice President Joe Biden both warned about the negatives of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline in 2016, respectively saying it would “have an adverse impact” and was a “fundamentally bad deal for Europe.”

The Nord Stream 2 is a 800-mile pipeline project which would transport natural gas from eastern Russia to northern Germany via the Baltic Sea. It would run parallel to the existing Nord Stream pipeline. Along with Washington, Eastern European countries formerly under the Soviet Union’s shadow oppose it because they say it would increase European reliance on Russia and threaten their national security.

President Donald Trump attacked Germany over the pipeline during remarks at a bilateral NATO breakfast on Wednesday in Belgium, saying the country was “totally controlled” by the Russians because of how much natural gas it purchases from them.

“Germany is totally controlled by Russia, because they were getting from 60 to 70 percent of their energy from Russia and a new pipeline, and you tell me if that’s appropriate, because I think it’s not, and I think it’s a very bad thing for NATO,” Trump said.

Kerry blasted Trump for his remarks about Germany and his rhetoric against NATO countries for not meeting defense spending obligations, tweeting out a statement calling his comments “disgraceful,” “destructive,” and a threat to hard-won alliances.

Kerry shared Trump’s concerns about the Nord Stream 2 pipeline while serving in the Obama administration. Speaking in Washington on May 4, 2016, alongside European Union High Representative Federica Mogherini and Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz, he talked about energy security and its relationship to “geopolitical stability and global security.”

The outrage over this by Kerry smacks of hypocrisy, especially given that he himself shared the same concerns as Trump not that long ago. This is a prime example of how folks despise the president so much they are willing to criticize him over anything and everything.

How is that productive to helping America? It isn’t. But that’s never been their concern. They only care about the progressive agenda.

Check this out, via News & Observer: The historic Cape Hatteras Light Station grounds were closed Thursday after a bomb appeared in the surf at Buxton on the Outer Banks, according to the National Park Service.

The iconic lighthouse, with its famous black and white stripes, dates to 1870. “After careful examination, a U.S. Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) unit from Norfolk, Virginia, confirmed that the object … is a live military ordnance,” the National Park Service said in an update Thursday night.

Trump Was A Longtime Presbyterian, Now He Says He Is Non-Denominational Christian

Doin’ things his way…

From New York Post: President Trump, who has long identified as a Presbyterian, now considers himself a non-denominational Christian, a new report said. The president shared his change in religious identity in a written interview with the Religious News Service. “Though I was confirmed at a Presbyterian church as a child, I now consider myself to be a non-denominational Christian,” Trump wrote, without giving an explanation for the transformation or saying when it occurred. Because everything is so PC and everybody is afraid of saying the wrong thing, free speech is at an all-time low. People are getting fired from their jobs, even expelled from school. At the end of the day, this proves that the left is winning. And it has to stop.
