WASHINGTON, D.C (LifeSiteNews) – President Joe Biden appointed the wife of his chief of staff to a new role as ambassador for plants and animals.

“For the first time, the United States is designating a special diplomat to advocate for global biodiversity amid what policymakers here and overseas increasingly recognize as an extinction crisis,” the Washington Post reported on Thursday, under the headline “In a first, U.S. appoints a diplomat for plants and animals.”

“Secretary Antony Blinken has designated Monica P. Medina as the United States’ Special Envoy for Biodiversity and Water Resources, signaling the Biden-Harris Administration’s commitment to resolving the world’s intertwined biodiversity and water crises,” the State Department announced Wednesday. “Monica Medina is the Assistant Secretary of State for Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs and will take on the Special Envoy designation in addition to her current duties.”

Medina is the wife of Biden Chief of Staff Ron Klain. The Post was criticized for initially omitting Medina’s connection to Klain. As chief of staff, Klain oversees appointments and personnel decisions.
Plants and animals need a dedicated ambassador because of the current “climate crisis,” the State Department claimed.
“Decades of evidence shows that water security is essential to global efforts to increase equity and economic growth, build inclusive and resilient societies, bolster health and food security, decrease the risk of conflict or instability, and tackle the climate crisis,” the news release stated. “Meanwhile, environmental stressors, like the climate crisis, nature crime – including illegal logging, mining, land conversion, and wildlife trafficking – have deep and detrimental impacts on the biodiversity of our planet and the availability of clean and safe water for human use.”

Mark Houck, a pro-life Catholic father of 7, became the latest victim of an FBI raid and arrest on the morning of Friday September 23 — for supposed “FACE (Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances) (Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances) Act” violations — at his rural home as his children looked on “screaming.” 

The arrest and raid stems from an altercation with a Planned Parenthood worker.

According to Mark’s wife Ryan-Marie, a “pro-abortion protester” would verbally harrass Mark's 12-year old son — hurling vulgar and derogatory statements. 

When the protestor encroached in the boy's space, Mark defended his son. At that point, “Mark shoved him away from his child, and the guy fell back,” Ryan-Marie recounts.

The protestor was not injured, but he tried to sue Mark Houck for the assault but his case was thrown out of court in the early summer. 

WE CANNOT ALLOW THE LEFT TO HARRASS PRO-LIFE ADVOCATES THIS WAY!

It's vital to stand in solidarity with a pro-family and pro-life man being unjustly persecuted - please SIGN & SHARE our message of support now.

If convicted, Houck faces up to a maximum of 11 years in prison, three years of supervised release, and fines of up to $350,000, according to the Justice Department. 

Additional conservative pro-life leaders have weighed in — this is why we need your support ASAP. 

“Just in the last few days we’ve seen some pretty glaring examples of what appear to be instances of DOJ [Department of Justice] overreach. You’ve got a Catholic father of seven who formed a group designed to encourage young men to be faithful to their commitments, arrested in front of his seven children just recently. You’ve got all these instances of overreach. It’s deeply concerning to us all. These are all things we’re gonna be looking into.”  — US Senator Mike Lee

Tell the Houck family that you stand by them!

SIGN: We stand with pro-life Catholic dad of 7 raided by Biden’s FBI 

Please share this petition widely. Let's stand in solidarity with Mark Houck and his family. 

Thank you.

Medina has previously expressed support for the radical Green New Deal agenda pushed by Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other socialists. It proposed a complete remaking of the economy with the goal of eliminating cheap and plentiful oil, gas, and coal. “The plan aims to fundamentally transform how Americans produce energy, harvest crops, raise livestock, build homes, drive cars, and manufacturer goods. Essentially, the way we all live our lives, all within 10 years,” the conservative Heritage Foundation explained.

Medina championed this “bold plan” to remake the economy in a 2019 Huffington Post opinion piece.

“A bold plan to transition to a green economy will both put Americans to work and reduce pollution that keeps millions of the working poor sick and trapped in poverty,” she wrote. “Kids will miss fewer days of school due to respiratory illness, parents will miss fewer days of work, and working a full-time job will pay a livable wage.”

“And action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is the only way to lower the probability that devastating fires, hurricanes and floods will become even more frequent occurrences,” she argued.
