John Kerry Just Blew Up His Political Career

His comments have just ended his reputation in the Democrat party.

Mike Rowe is the working man’s hero. He’s also a font of common sense.

The TV star, the former host of “Dirty Jobs,” on Monday weighed in on White House climate envoy John Kerry’s statement about oil industry workers who lose their jobs amid President Joe Biden’s climate change policies needing to learn how to build solar panels.

That, he said, doesn’t make “a ton of sense.”

“If you have a skill that’s in demand, and you’re willing to go to where the work is, the opportunities are still out there,” he said in an appearance on Fox News.

On Wednesday, Kerry appeared in the White House briefing room to talk about Biden’s expansive climate change policy. During his first days in office, Biden signed executive orders killing an extension of the Keystone XL pipeline, which carries Canadian crude oil into the U.S., and ordering a temporary ban on oil drilling on federal lands. Economists estimate the loss of Keystone will cost 11,000 jobs, and it’s unknowable how many people will be put out of work by the 60-day ban.

In the briefing, a reporter asked Kerry: “Mr. Secretary, if you would, there’s — there certainly are oil and gas industry workers who are watching you both right now who will hear the message that’s — that the takeaway to them is that they are seeing an end to their livelihoods. What do you say to them, particularly those people who President Trump struck a chord with on the campaign trail when he promised to save their jobs? What is your message to them right now?”

“With respect to those workers, no — no two people are more — in this room, are more concerned about it. And the President of the United States has expressed, in every comment he has made about climate, the need to grow the new jobs that pay better, that are cleaner, that —” Kerry said, breaking off on a tangent about black lung disease for coal miners.

“I mean, you know, you look at the consequences of black lung for a miner, for instance, and measure that against the fastest-growing job in the United States before COVID was solar power technician. The same people can do those jobs, but the choice of doing the solar power one now is a better choice. And similarly, you have the second-fastest-growing job pre-COVID was wind turbine technician,” he said.

“So what President Biden wants to do is make sure those folks have better choices, that they have alternatives, that they can be the people who go to work to make the solar panels — that we’re making them here at home. That is going to be a particular focus of the Build Back Better agenda.”

Kerry also said fossil fuel workers “have been fed the notion that somehow dealing with climate is coming at their expense. No, it’s not. What is happening to them is happening because of other market forces are already taking place.”

Rowe, though, said Kerry’s comments were “not entirely wrong.” But he said that the need for skilled labor will reach levels “like we’ve never seen before” after the COVID-19 pandemic, adding that although the government is having issues with fossil fuels, “the country isn’t.”

  1. Mr. John Kerry is already pouring way too much Pollution into The USA’s Air, by spending way too much time in The USA’s Air Space, by riding way too many miles in his Rich Wife’s Gas Guzzling Lear Jet! Flying all over this Blue Marble called Earth!

  2. Fred, J Kerry is the only former US Military vet to put himself in for a medal. That medal being the Purple Heart Award for self administered injury while being a brown water caption. Back before his marriage to Mrs. Hines when he protested Vietnam and through his medals and ribbons at the White House he should have been arrested. But, maybe yet he has several sets of such material easily to purchase at the Post Exchange (PX). He flies around in a Gulf Stream not a Learjet except when his wife takes the big plane on a trip.

  3. This man has no business being involved in anything to do with “We The People” because he isn’t even human. Look at that ugly long face. Grrrrr!. He looks like some kind of out of space weirdo that just showed up in Washington. He has no worries because he married a rich woman that she & her parents own Heinz Ketchup Co.
    He talks about Climate change while flying around in his/her big jet that uses more fuel then a regular passenger plane. He/she has a big ship!! that he keeps in another town to keep from paying the fee charges where he lives. The man is a loss cause and has no business in our government affairs. Trump would kick his a__ out of the White House in a second because he is a lying power hungry pig. But as we all know, even these Progressive, Socialist, Democrats that Biden is suffering from Dementia and these types can tell him anything and he’ll believe it.. Biden is unable to run this country.. Only God can help America and “We The People” that love her.. So stay in prayer my sisters and brothers in Christ.. We need Jesus now more then ever..

  4. Add this to my earlier comment..
    There is no such thing as Climate Change.. God controls the atmosphere and as long as we have trees and plants they clean the air.. That’s the way God made the world. So don’t be misled by all this crazy mans talk.. I will say that China has so many factories and machinery that do cause bad air.. But we are no where near being as China.. But China owns the Biden”s, so we may be in for some horrible things occurring that we never imagined. .. Our only hope is God.. He’s is watching and waiting for Christians to call on Him.. He can do anything.. Remember that my friends…

  5. Kerry needs to get his head OUT of his own rich ass then maybe, just maybe, he might breathe some fresh air and get a worthwhile THOUGHT!!!! Meantime, as he flies in his own Learjet!!!

  6. john kerry is not a leader but a lying thief. was a complete fibber in nam.crapped on soliders who were watching his ain’t what kerry can do for you but what you can do for him. people please check these people out before voting for them.

  7. I don’t believe that Beijing Biden has the “Common Sense “gene in his makeup or maybe he doesn’t have the ability to think past the tip of his nose! It sure is 0bvious that the decisions he’s making don’t require or exhibit much “Forward Thinking”
