Kerry strikes again! The Climate Envoy, who is already infamous for being a hypocrite after being caught using a private jet for his climate crusade, has endorsed Dr. Sultan Al Jaber, the CEO of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), for the position of president of COP28, the annual U.N.-organized climate change conference.
‘Climate change’ continues to divide Dems https://t.co/oiTnZf4lVC

Not surprisingly, a group of 34 Democratic members of Congress led the charge in rebuking the Biden administration and demanding the dismissal of Al Jaber. The Democrats argue that it is unacceptable for an executive of an oil giant, which just announced plans to add 7.6 billion barrels of oil to its production in the coming years, to be appointed as president of COP28.
To add insult to injury, 98 members of the European Parliament, mostly representing left-wing parties, also joined the Democrats in calling for Al Jaber’s removal. But why should we listen to them when they rely on us for their national security?
The UAE has been a reliable ally for the United States in the Middle East, and yet the Democrats seem to be more concerned about appeasing climate activists than maintaining our important strategic interests. The Jebel Ali Port in the UAE is the most frequently-used “port of call” for U.S. Navy ships in the world, and the UAE hosts important U.S. military facilities. But sure, let’s jeopardize all of that just to make a political point.
It seems that the Democrats are once again showing their true colors by attacking an oil executive instead of acknowledging the contributions of the energy sector to our economy and our national security. And let’s not forget that Kerry, who has a long history of cozying up to dictatorships and bad actors, is the one who endorsed Al Jaber.
It’s time for the Biden administration to prioritize our national interests over the political whims of the Democratic Party and their climate change agenda. Otherwise, we risk losing our foothold in one of the most volatile regions of the world.
