Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif spoke out saying that Democrat John Kerry, the Biden administration’s Special Presidential Envoy for Climate, informed him that Israel was behind hundreds of attacks on Iranian assets in Syria.
When asked to comment on the explosive report, State Department spokesman Ned Price along with Press Secretary Jen Psaki said they do not comment on leaked materials.
Kerry decided to respond to it after Price and Psaki both declined, claiming, “I can tell you that this story and these allegations are unequivocally false. This never happened — either when I was Secretary of State or since.”
Free Beacon reporter Chuck Ross noted that Kerry did not specify what which part of the story he claims is false.
Kerry doesn’t say which part is false. Also notable: he’s commenting on the Zarif tape after both White House and State Dept said they won’t comment on leaked materials https://t.co/MsnuKIEcVp

“If this tape is verified, it would signal catastrophic and disqualifying recklessness by Envoy Kerry to Foreign Minister Zarif that endangered the safety of Americans and our allies,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said in a statement to The Daily Wire. “And it would be consistent with his long pattern of empowering Iran’s regime. Kerry poured hundreds of billions of dollars into the Ayatollah’s terrorist bank accounts, was a close confidant with Zarif during the Obama administration, and was caught repeatedly meeting with him during the Trump administration (notwithstanding the Logan Act) — and has never publicly accounted for what they discussed.”
Mike Pompeo, former secretary of state and CIA director, told the Free Beacon that the report proved “what I’ve said for years: That [Zarif] continued to engage with former secretary of state Kerry on policy matters after Kerry’s public service and, according to Zarif, Kerry informed the Iranians of Israeli operations.”
This is a criminal act and John Kerry must be immediately investigated and PROSECUTED.
President Biden must immediately remove John Kerry from any government or advisory position.https://t.co/lO7ReFVCZS

Imagine for a second a Trump official sitting on the NSC, like Kerry does, told Iran details about Israeli strikes?
I believe the media would be screaming TREASON and they wouldn’t be too far off, but of course they’ll say and do nothing because they’re useless propagandists. https://t.co/ZsDowqtVWN

John Kerry Defends Flying a Private Jet to Iceland for a Environmental Award
John Kerry took a private jet to Iceland in 2019 to receive the Arctic Circle award for climate leadership. He was also just appointed climate czar by Joe Biden.
Kerry said this is “the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle” as he defended his very large carbon footprint mode of travel.
Kerry received the award, which took the form of an iceberg sculpture, for being “a consistent voice pressuring the American authorities to commit to tackle environmental matters,” the outlet noted.
Icelandic reporter Jóhann Bjarni Kolbeinsson confronted Kerry at the event over his choice of transportation, asking: “I understand that you came here with a private jet. Is that an environmental way to travel?”
Kerry responded by claiming that it was the only way. “If you offset your carbon — it’s the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle,” Kerry said.
We’re not sure if it sends the right message to have your climate czar flying around the world in a private jet telling other people to lower their carbon footprint while he emits upwards of 40 times as much carbon with his mode of transportation.
Kerry’s family’s private jet spent over 20 hours in the air over the past year which released an estimated 116 metric tons of carbon emissions. If the average passenger vehicle emits 4.6 metric tons a year, how could Kerry possibly offset his carbon footprint?

John Kerry: Biden Wants Fossil Fuel Workers Who Lose Their Jobs to Make Solar Panels
On Wednesday John Kerry spoke on Joe Biden’s executive orders, the same orders that are seeing the loss of thousands of jobs, saying that he would like fossil fuel workers who lose their jobs to “have better choices” like going to make solar panels.
John Kerry is asked what his message would be to oil and gas workers who “see an end to their livelihoods”:

Kerry spoke of coal miners and getting black lung saying these workers could be solar power technicians instead, it would be a “better choice.”
“So what President Biden wants to do is make sure those folks have better choices, that they have alternatives. They can be the people who go to work to make those solar panels,” Kerry noted. He said that a focus of the Biden climate plan is to grow clean energy jobs in the United States.
Kerry added that “workers have been fed a false narrative,” which he said is “no surprise.”
Biden’s climate plan has been met with resistance from those who say the president’s actions will cause thousands of people to lose their jobs. The president has pledged to invest $2 trillion into climate issues and combatting climate change. Most recently, the Washington Post reported that Biden is prepared to pause new federal oil and gas leasing, which was one of his campaign promises.
It has not been a good week for tens of thousands of families who will be affected by job loss due to these EO’s and told to just find a new career.
