Kerry is ‘respected in every corner’
Boston Herald, by Kimberly Atkins

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/22/2012 12:49:32 PM

WASHINGTON — With apologies to Jay-Z, President Obama has 99 problems, but John Kerry ain’t one. With a trip over the fiscal cliff all but inevitable, growing opposition to other rumored Obama appointment choices and a potentially bruising gun control battle on the president’s plate — at least Obama can take the gloves off when it comes to Kerry’s road to confirmation. First, Kerry will go before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which he currently chairs. Then, he’ll face the full Senate — full of folks with whom Kerry has worked for decades. Republicans call Kerry “Mr. Secretary.”

Kerry is not respected in our corner either, not for his throwing his medals away, not for his cheating on his taxes by mooring his boat in another state, not for his dovelike stands, etc,etc.

Horse Face Kerry is not, repeat, is not, respected in the military ranks nor in the military communities.

Sounds to me as thought the author has the sane warm fuzzy feeling down her leg for Kerry as Chris Matthews has for 0bama.

He is the great chicken of Vietnam. He couldn´t cut and run fast enough.

I didn´t even know the Senate had a working committee of Foreign Relations. I thought it was like the Senate Budget Committee that never meets.

Kerry is one of the few dumb enough to make Hillary look smart I guess.

A question that will never be asked: Senator Kerry, you were awarded 3 Purple Hearts during you 4 months in Vietnam. As Secretary of State, if you suffered from a stomach flu and possible mild concussion, do you think that you would be able to testify about the murder of our ambassador two weeks later?

Kimberly, you´re totally full of, well whatever it is, it isn´t truth!

This is one corner who loathes John Kerry and has lost all respect for those members of congress who approve of this nomination.

You may or may not believe the "swiftboaters" (I do), but his actions regarding the VVAW, his medal throwing/not throwing, his false testimony under oath in front of congress regarding atrocities, and his unapproved discussions with North Vietnam are all acts which should have landed him in jail, not congress.

Of course in either place he still consorts with criminals!

Giving Aid and Comfort to the enemy evidently qualifies one for serving this country now. We are in the sewer now. Traitors, tax cheats, liars, race baiters..plenty of room for Kerry.

The Senate has been described as a club, and clubbiness is why the traitor Kerry will easily be confirmed.

This club attitude, however, needs to be eradicated, in the interests of the American people-- preferably by Tea Party or conservative newcomers. November 2014 will come soon enough. Maybe we´ll get some good news in that election.

When Republicans call Kerry "Mr. Secretary," it is not in tribute to his wisdom and competence but rather a taunt about his lack of them, and to point out his obvious long-standing drooling over the thought of obtaining a Cabinet post.

Truly, one of the least qualified candidates for this post in my lifetime.

Didn´t the last time the media and Kerry tangled with the Swift Boaters teach them a lesson? Spineless cowards can´t stand up against real vets. And I also seem to remember the meme in O´s first campaign that ´finally, the world will respect us again´. What I want to know is, where is that respect? All I see is the world laughing their well dressed fannies off at the boy wonder. What they had against Bush was a combo of envy that he was Presidential in every sense, and a healthy uncomfortable fear that he meant what he said and said what he meant. Unlike Obama.

Consider the source. Atkins is one of two token lefties who write for the Boston Herald.

She can be counted on to write very favorable stuff about Democrat office holders, especially stories about Gov Deval Patrick, her fellow AA.

Peter Gelzinas is the other Herald leftie, about the only South Boston writer of that ilk.

“I think you have to go back centuries to find someone with the same gravitas that he brings to the job,” said Boston University professor and former U.S. Ambassador to Tanzania Charles Stith.

“He will be respected in ?every corner of the world.”
--------------------------

And just who, pray tell, is Charles Stith? Besides a Boston University professor and the former U.S. Ambassador to Tanzania? Thanks to the internet and Google, it is easy to find out.

It is also easy to refresh one´s memory about John Kerry´s despicable behavior during the Vietnam war and the so-called Winter Soldier investigation. Terrible slanders were voiced by Kerry and his buddies against U.S. troops. Claims were made that atrocities and butchery of civilians by American soldiers were routine and that they were the result of orders. These claims were thoroughly investigated by the U.S. military. Many of those who testified changed their stories, retracted them, admitted they were speculations, could not give substantiating details, etc. Not one single criminal prosecution could even be initiated as a result of exhaustive inquiry into the validity of these slanderous allegations of commonplace war crimes committed on orders.

Kerry and others lied about this. Anyone acquainted with the story of his Purple Hearts has no doubt he lied and exaggerated to obtain them. Practically all the men who knew and served with Kerry in Vietnam despised him as a schemer and phony. He is a gigolo. And he is not the brightest bulb in the Senate, which presently does not contain very much mental wattage to begin with.

Then there is the $7 million dollar yacht out of state docking to avoid $500,000 Massachusetts taxes story...

I´ve long reconciled myself to Jon as SOS - given that Hillary had so sullied the position that she would be such an easy act to follow. I was not, however, ready to see him as Sec Def - given his appalling record with the military.

So with Susan Rice´s crash-n-burn opening the slot for Lurch (who would also be a fine WH butler btw) and thus opening a vacancy in the Senate for another Scott Brown run, I can live with the nomination.

Obviously, they never checked the Swift Boater´s corners, either.

Atlanta Braves flooded with Hank

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

U.S. military assets in the Black Sea are on high alert amid reports Ukraine troops traded gunfire Tuesday with pro-Russian militants. A journalist with Associated Press reported intense gunfire at an airport in eastern Ukraine after the government sent in army troops to retake control from militiamen loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mayor of Kramatorsk told the Associated Press that Ukrainian troops have now occupied the military airport and are blocking its entrance. The action comes a day after the revelation a Russian fighter jetted buzzed a U.S.S. destroyer multiple times over the Black Sea.

Democrats target 30 House
Republicans on immigration

House Democrats are rolling out a new strategy to target 30 House Republicans on immigration reform during the two-week congressional recess, marking a last-ditch effort to force GOP action on a legislative overhaul. The new pressure tactic includes a memo distributed to those 30 districts held by Republicans who have expressed public support for some sort of immigration reform, many of them backing a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Democrats hope the document — which highlights statements made by those Republicans in favor of reform, as well as data showing the district-specific economic

Is Scott Walker on his way to
2016 front-runner status?
Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff    Original Article

Scott Walker has a 16 point lead (56-40) among likely voters in his race for governor, according to a poll from Wisconsin Public Radio/St. Norbert’s. Among registered voters, his lead is essentially the same (55-40). The survey was conducted between March 24 and April 3. A Marquette University survey conducted between March 20-23 also showed Walker with a nice, though smaller, lead. In that poll, Walker outdistanced Democrat Mary Burke 48-41. Revealingly, Walker fares well in an electorate that does not seem particularly conservative and that, if anything, appears to be slightly to the left of American voters in general.

UC Irvine Should Immediately Rescind
Its Invitation to 2014 Commencement
Speaker (and War Criminal) Barack Obama
Washington Free Beacon [DC], by Andrew Stiles    Original Article

Note: This post was inspired by the #DropDropbox campaign. On March 20 the University of California, Irvine, announced that Barack Obama will give the commence address to its class of 2014. This is deeply disturbing, and anyone—or any university—who values ethics should be concerned. Why is this? Because he was part of the failed Obama administration? Because he is a Democrat and we should hate Democrats? No. This is not an issue of partisanship. It makes sense that UC Irvine would want an accomplished, high-level, well-connected individual as their commencement speaker. There is no doubt that Barack Obama is an

When Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Steve Israel (N.Y.) was asked Sunday whether he thinks his Republican colleagues are racist, he responded with a frankness that is rare in politics and even less common when it comes to sensitive issues like race. "Not all of them, no, of course not," Israel said on CNN´s "State of the Union." "But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. And that´s unfortunate." Israel´s not the only high-ranking Democrat to advance some version of that argument recently. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that Republican reluctance

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
