Kerry Says Sleepy Joe Biden ‘Not Aware’ Of Sub Deal That Infuriated France
  • Kerry spoke to French television as Secretary of State Antony Blinken was to meet French President Emmanuel Macron
  • French government was seething after US announced new security deal with UK and Australia
  • It resulted in cancellation of multi-billion French submarine contract
  • France recalled its ambassador to Washington, but he has since returned
  •  Biden ‘literally had not been aware of what had transpired,’ Kerry said

Climate envoy John Kerry made an extraordinary admission to French TV on Monday that President Biden ‘literally had not been aware’ of the fallout of the AUKUS submarine deal that caused France to lose a $90billion submarine contract.

‘He literally had not been aware of what had transpired,’ Kerry, who serves as President Biden’s climate envoy, told French broadcaster BFMTV.

Kerry made the comment in an interview conducted in both French and English that aired Monday, while US diplomats including Secretary of State Anthony Blinken tried to heal the rift with the French during meetings in Paris.

The French government said it was stabbed in the back by its close allies over the nuclear-powered submarine deal – part of the so-called AUKUS security pact between the United States, Australia and Britain announced on Sept. 15 – and the wounds would take time to heal. 

‘And I don’t want to go into the details of it, but suffice it to say, that the president, my president is very committed to strengthening the relationship and making sure that this is a small event of the past and moving on to the much more important future,’ said Kerry.

As Kerry explained, ‘President Biden asked me about it, and I told him.’ His interviewer pressed: ‘You told Joe Biden that it was not the right …’

Kerry interjected: ‘He asked me. He said, “What’s the situation?” And I explained exactly. He had not been aware of that,’ said Kerry.

Salvation Army: White donors need to offer ‘Sincere Apology’ for their Racism

The Salvation Army wants its white donors to give it more than just money this Christmas season.

Its leadership is also demanding they apologize for being racist.

It’s part of a push by the Christian charitable organization to embrace the ideas of Black Lives Matter, and “dismantle white privilege” and “disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure.”

The Salvation Army’s Alexandria-based leadership has created an “International Social Justice Commission” which has developed and released a “resource” to educate its white donors, volunteers and employees called Let’s Talk about Racism.

It asserts Christianity is institutionally racist, calling for white Christians to repent and offer “a sincere apology” to blacks for being “antagonistic.. to black people and the values of the black community.”

“Many have come to believe that we live in a post-racial society, but racism is very real for our brothers and sisters who are refused jobs and housing, denied basic rights and brutalized and oppressed simply because of the color of their skin,” one lesson explains. “There is an urgent need for Christians to evaluate racist attitudes and practices in light of our faith, and to live faithfully in today’s world.”

In an accompanying Study Guide on Racism, Salvation Army authors explain that all whites are racist, even if they don’t realize it. “The subtle nature of racism is such that people who are not consciously racist easily function with the privileges, empowerment and benefits of the dominant ethnicity, thus unintentionally perpetuating injustice,” it says.
