For the past four years, the United States’ foreign policy has been predicated on the notion of “America first” while domestic policy, especially economically, has centered on spurring growth via tax cuts, deregulation, and bureaucratic reform.
This agenda resulted in a thriving American economy, pre-pandemic, as well as a renewed sense of the American dream being more attainable than in recent years.
However, this is likely to come to an immediate end, given the likelihood that Joe Biden will be inaugurated as the 46th president of the United States on January 20, 2021.
Throughout his 47-year political career, Biden has been an advocate of globalism, tax increases, and more federal government intervention. After all, Biden was a big advocate of China joining the World Trade Organization, as well as a plethora of big government programs, such as Obamacare.
Yet, Biden’s support for globalism and big government is likely to be taken to a whole new level given his pick of John Kerry to be his so-called “climate czar.”
Kerry, a former senator and secretary of state, is all-in on the radical, globalist “Great Reset.” And because Kerry will be given wide latitude in forming America’s climate policies for the foreseeable future, it is a good bet that the United States will join the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Great Reset with open arms.
Kerry, who has been moonlighting as a WEF Great Reset spokesman the past few months, has made it crystal clear that he intends, with Biden’s blessing, to put America front and center in the Great Reset’s new world order.
Under the guise of the COVID crisis, Kerry plans to make big changes.
According to Kerry, while speaking at a WEF Great Reset panel, “We can’t push a button and go back to the way things were. … We are a long way off from being able to go back to any kind of normal. … And the normal was a crisis. The normal itself was not working. What has happened is COVID has accelerated everything, so all the forces and pressures that were pushing into crisis over the social contract are now exacerbated and exacerbated at a time when the world is in many ways coming apart.”
Like Rahm Emanuel said, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. I mean, it’s an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before.”
Kerry added, “This is a big moment, and the World Economic Forum, the CEO capacity of the World Economic Forum is going to have to really play a front and center role in defining the reset in a way nobody misinterprets as just taking us back to the way things were. But in having to prepare us for dealing with global climate change, with this massive inequity from globalization, through the failure of this contract to protect disenfranchised people, all of which is being laid bare as a consequence of COVID. And in addition, in our country as a consequence of some police actions that lit a fuse in the younger generation and I think will produce massive social change in our country.”
Sadly, Kerry is using the pandemic as an “opportunity” to implement a host of climate change actions and worldwide socialistic policies.
As Kerry explains, “We have got to deal with climate change. Climate change … is the single biggest economic opportunity the world has ever had. … There is a monumental set of opportunities in building infrastructure and pushing the technology curve which may well be the solution through negative emissions technology to the challenge of climate. No one is pursuing that with the kind of fervor necessary. … So I think there are a whole set of things, not the least of which is global health on which we will only survive and thrive on this planet if we coordinate multilaterally, there are just huge opportunities there.”
The Great Reset is so much more than climate change. Its architects, including Kerry, plan to upend the free-market capitalist system that has created so much innovation and prosperity with what they call “stakeholder capitalism.”
As Kerry describes it, “It’s shareholder versus stakeholder. And the issue is whether or not we’re going to move fast enough to provide for what people need at this moment. I think the greatest opportunity we have to do that is in dealing with the climate crisis.”
That is the crux of the Great Reset. It is nothing more than an elitist-led radical new world order in which those in positions of power, such as Kerry and other globalist bigwigs, make the rules for the rest of us, which conveniently don’t apply to them, of course.
And if you think this is some kind of fantastical pipedream, think again. According to Kerry, “it [the Great Reset] will happen. And I think it will happen with greater speed and with greater intensity than a lot of people might imagine.”
