By the Company It Keeps




Anyone who doubts that confronting climate change is a national security issue should have sat in the meetings I just had in Asia, where it was a primary topic of discussion with every one of my interlocutors, alongside other security issues like [North Korea] and violent extremism...And that’s true around the world. So now it's time to put aside discredited scientific arguments and partisan politics and to focus on the facts — not just for our health and the health of our children but for our planet's security as well.
-John Kerry, May 20, 2015.

Directions: Clean and trim one Idea. Mix well with American Government, then baste heavily in corporate marketing support for at least ten years. Sprinkle generously with American Secretaries of State, Yale University, and references to national security. Lightly season with recurrent news media attention, streamlined grant approval processes, coordinated Hollywood cinematic focus, and exorbitantly expensive international symposia. Add chopped military contracts at a 1:3 ratio. Bake in a conventional wisdom for 58 minutes or until urgent. Top off with a large scoop of John Kerry and serve.

    1. Let's go a little further, and ask ourselves what all of those factors have in common. The answer being, "Anything they espouse is a complete fabrication."

      No matter how appealing any one of their arguments is to us, we shouldn't forget their 100% track record of lying.

  2. Right. The Rockefeller foundation is one of the early supporters of environmentalism. Sounds strange, until you realize that a major priority for the elites after 1975 is the dismantling of the middle class.
    How are you going to do that unless you also deindustrialize?

    1. You have to admit, it's a compelling narrative. It makes it sound like the Rapture really will occur in our lifetime, and we'd better give all our money to the priests and beg for penance now now now.
