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.

Beto’s Bizarre and “Witchy” Rituals are Dumbfounding Democrats

Let’s not overlook the fact that O’Rourke also subjected his family to his esoteric gibberish as well.

Beto O'Rourke

The behavior of Beto O’Rourke would the prime fodder for the writers over at Saturday Night Live, if they were ever inclined to take a shot at a liberal politician. No, the folks over at NBC likely won’t be talking about Beto O’Rourke’s whimsical mysticism, or the fact that he believed that eating magical dirt would give him superpowers. That second bit, while certainly a striking and piercing accusation, is absolutely true. O’Rourke, who came up short in his bid to unseat Sen. Cruz, R-Texas, despite raising $80 million for the Senate push, told the story of his earthy snack in a sprawling 3,000-word profile published by The Washington Post. “In January, Beto hit the road, much as his father had done before him, and drew energy from the people he met, and — on one stop in New Mexico he didn’t write about in his blog — by eating New Mexican dirt said to have regenerative powers,” the profile reads. “He brought some home for the family to eat, too.” This shamanic nonsense comes to us just days after O’Rourke’s sprawling interview in Vanity Fair had the 2020 democratic candidate discussing how politics are his “destiny”, and how he was “born to” run for President. Beto’s latest tirade came at the expense of the electoral college – a system of voting that the democrats are increasingly looking to alter. “I think there’s a lot to that. Because you had an election in 2016 where the loser got 3 million more votes than the victor,” O’Rourke said in a video posted online on Tuesday. “It puts some states out of play altogether, they don’t feel like their votes really count. “If we really want everyone to vote, to give them every reason to vote, we have to make sure their…

Ditching the Electoral College is Popular Among Dems…Here’s Why

If you think this is a good idea, you should speak with folks in Northern California and Upstate New York…

electoral college

Of all of the issues that we expected to see arise during the run-up to the 2020 presidential election, one may easily carry with it the most weight. That idea is the abolishment of the electoral college; the system of voting that our nation has utilized since 1804.  Sure, the process can be a bit tedious and tumultuous at times, but, as the President himself explained, there is a very real purpose for this convolution. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1108187855954870272 https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1108190837257764864 The Commander in Chief makes a great point here, and it’s one that the people of Northern California and Upstate New York can attest to well. You see, in those states, the popular vote is used for a number of ballot initiatives and general public decision making.  In both of those states, the liberal population hubs of The Big Apple and the beaches of Southern California completely overwhelms the rest of the state’s far more rural and conservative population.  This means that, proportionally, a tiny fraction of the state is lording over the greater mass of the state on all matters. To some, it sounds a bit like a King in his castle, looking out amongst the vast expanses of farmland in serfdom. For others, the issue is not just the idea of taking away a well-established, tuned, and tested system for voting, but rather the appearance that this move, combined with other liberal pipe dreams, is all due to their poor sportsmanship at the end of the 2016 contest. President Trump had a tweet for that, too. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1108217768187449344
