Last week, just days after President Biden blamed Seven 11 owners and energy producers for high gas prices, the administration created a new top job at the State Department.
The technical title is Special Diplomat To Advocate For Global Biodiversity. The government is already chock full of agencies dealing with saving endangered species and the Amazon rainforest. Meanwhile, there is still no U.S. Ambassador to Brazil and Italy.
The new post will be filled by Monica Medina, who told the Washington Postthat this job is “not just about nature for nature’s sake….the loss of biodiversity …is one of the biggest threats facing humanity.” Her goal is to conserve 30 percent of their land and water area. Down with development.
So how was Monica selected for this job? Guess what? She is the wife of White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain. It’s a family affair. Wouldn’t you just love to be a fly in the wall at the Klain dinner table? “How many jobs did you destroy today, honey?”
