Good to see them get together.
Biden took a few questions from reporters yesterday before abruptly stopping and saying “I’m really gonna be in trouble”
You can tell how much of this is stagecraft requiring the suspension of disbelief. President Biden would have us believe things that are logically incompatible, e.g., (1) that climate change is one of the most important crises facing the human race, and (2) that John Kerry should be entrusted with leading our response to climate change.

Rather than being a mere proclamation of scripture, the liturgy is meant to bring others…
