Biden’s plan should be called “hypocrisy housing.” Its backers are hypocrites. Biden himself owns a four-acre lakefront home in upscale Greenville, Delaware, where there is absolutely no public housing, affordable housing or rentals that accept housing vouchers. And don’t expect any to be built next door to the Bidens.
Vice President Kamala Harris and her husband own a $5 million gated home on a street of expensive single-family homes in Brentwood, California. That reeks of privilege.
President Barack Obama launched his Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing program in 2015 to ensure that every neighborhood includes housing for low-income buyers and renters and public transportation.
Yet, for their own family, the Obamas bought an $11.75 million Martha’s Vineyard mansion on 29 waterfront acres. Martha’s Vineyard is critically short of affordable housing, according to a public report, but that didn’t stop them.
Sanders preferred ultra-low temperatures of just 60 degrees F ... In addition to blasting the air conditioning during warmer weather, according to the book, Sanders also much preferred taking trips on board private jets — a surprising revelation about a Congressman who has consistently called for action on climate change and more recently endorsed the Green New Deal.
Flying Private: “Charter flights were a revelation to him,” Dovere wrote in the book, as quoted by Fox News. “He would always be a little embarrassed pulling into the private terminals, but boy, did he get a kick out of not worrying about being late for a flight that couldn’t take off without him.”
Marc Morano, the publisher of the climate change and eco-news center Climate Depot, said Mr. Biden was acting as the chief lobbyist for the electric car industry.
“Biden visiting in a gas-guzzling limo is par for the course for climate activists,” Mr. Morano said. “Did the president have to wait in long gas lines to fill up his limo? Did the president have to drive from gas station to gas station to find gas for his ride? Biden is doing his best John Kerry imitation.” Mr. Kerry, the White House climate change envoy, was criticized early this year for flying in private jets to events where he admonished that “too many airplanes” were adding greenhouse gases to the atmosphere.
Axios: Kerry was the advisory board chairman for Climate Finance Partners, which "creates innovative and globally needed finance solutions that address climate change."
He was also the president of the Vietnam Sustainable Energy Corporation.
He drew a $5 million salary from Bank of America. He was tapped as chairman of the bank's global advisory council months after his tenure as Barack Obama's second secretary of State
He landed $382,400 in speaking fees from entities including Deutsche Bank, Waste Management and Cornell University.
Kerry also reported compensation "in excess of $5,000" for more than a dozen other speeches in 2019, including ones to Barclays, Zurich Insurance and the foundation run by Ukrainian oligarch Victor Pinchuk.
NY Post: The couple now owns more than 1,300 acres on Kauai, known as the “Garden Island” for its extensive tropical rainforests. They began assembling their fiefdom in 2014 with the 357-acre Kahuaina Plantation. ... It is set far back from publicly accessible areas, with a controversial walled perimeter. According to building permits that total $83 million, one application called for a 57,059-square-foot home with eight bedrooms, nine full baths, and 16 half baths.
“Mark Zuckerberg is the sixth richest man in the world … and he is suing Native Hawaiians in Kauai for their land so he can build a mansion. He’s building a mansion to do what? Live in Kauai for two months out of the year? This is inhuman.”
March 2021: Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg thinks smart glasses could help combat climate change: Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that by 2030, people could use advanced smart glasses to “teleport” to locations like other people’s homes, and speak to them as if they’re physically present, allowing in-person meetings to be replaced by a headset-based digital experience. ... “We talked a little bit about climate change before just being so important,” Zuckerberg said. “People are just going to want to maybe travel a little less in the future and do it more efficiently, and be able to go places without having to take the travel or commute time.”
