Secretary Clinton Doesn’t
Attend Kerry Announcement

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 12/23/2012 4:23:41 AM

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama on Friday nominated Sen. John Kerry as his next secretary of state, elevating the longtime lawmaker and foreign policy expert to the top diplomatic job he had coveted.“He is not going to need a lot of on-the-job training,” Obama said, standing alongside Kerry at the White House. “Few individuals know as many presidents and prime ministers or grasp our policies as firmly as John Kerry.”

At least he´s not a closet lesbian, which must have went over like a lead balloon in the mussie countries.

She couldn´t attend a day or so after skipping out on the Benghazi hearings,they had to release the whitewash report first so she can parade around all exonerated from any wrongdoing.

I just heard Stevens sent requests directly to the WH for more security but somehow these demonic and twisted people have wound up blaming the victim himself because he know the dangers of the area.

Newsflash for AP; that´s not the only thing she didn´t do in the last four years. In fact, the accumulation of frequent flier miles is probably her only accomplishment.

How is Jon Cary an expert on *any* thing? Let alone foreign policy. He did marry well, that I´ll grant him.

As for the PIAPS she couldn´t be bothered. She´s busy trying keep her linen clean from the Benghazi fiasco.

A feeble attempt to forget for a moment the grim news from last week:

Song Parody

Kerry under fire at his Senate hearing, cribbing from that great sixties songbird Brenda Lee and her smash hit, ´´I’m Sorry.´´

I’m Kerry, a cherry
For being such a tool
and siding with Ho;
It just seemed so cool
Now uh-oh, uh-oh.

You know that I lied
‘Cause I thought we were wrong,
But now I can say
´´To Hell with the Cong.´´

I’m sKerry, so sKerry,
Please accept my botoxicology
Vast fissures, deep-lined
left scores on my mind;
I’d a face like a hind,
I begged, ´´God strike me blind,´´
Then lashed out at my kind.

I’m rueful, so rueful,
Please forgive my disloyalty.
How could I know
I’d be up for State?
Have the chance to make headway
With the tree-huggers’ slate?
(I´m sKerry)

#6 has a great point about the time to "sanitize" the records.

I don´t say anything about Kerry´s wife because George Washington also married his money (most of it). However, Washington was a man of character. He managed his wife´s estate and was a father to her children. Through both their efforts, the Washington´s financed the American revolution. TeRAYsah, on the other hand, funds the destruction of everything that George and Martha worked and fought for by her massive support of the Tides Foundation which funnels money to left-wing organizations set on the destruction of the American system and of capitalism.

Kerry should have been tried as a traitor when he was in his twenties. For presidents and military commanders to overlook and "forgive" such acts (as Jimmah Carter did in his self-righteous foolishness) is to allow such butt-boils to fester and grow until someday they become secretary of state (or President).

FTA: “John’s entire life has prepared him for this role” said Obama, who praised Kerry for his belief that the country must harness “all elements of Americans power.”

This statement sums up Kerry´s qualifications. All who work for Obama must understand that HE is the power; the United States, not so much. Kerry will carry that message with pride. Before Obama and his crew of anti-Americans are through, we will be so weakened on the world´s stage that we will have little influence and that is just the way the progressives planned it.

She´s a lush and I´d say probably drinking Christmas Spirits in her war room at the house she bought so she could be "selected" senator from New York.....

All in keeping with the "new" demorats. The ole Roosevelt democrats are crying this Christmas that a man such as kerry could represent the military of this great country when he "loathed" the military... Another "in your face" moment for this administration....

I also strongly suspect #18´s comments about Clinton. She did not go to the hospital after the "fall", and we´ve heard nothing about Bill or Chelsea rushing to her side. I think her little incident was a drinking binge.

Would anyone really want to see John Murtha as Secretary of State? (yes I know he is now a good democRat). How about Cindy Sheehan, Michael Moore or Bill Maher?
Well Monsieur Kerry is in the same not-so-swift boat as these morons if you will recall his famous statement:
"You know education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. And if you don´t, you get stuck in Iraq."
Yup. Only a statement like this could come from the phoniest guy in recent history who picked a fight with a rice bunker and wound up getting Forrest Gumped in the @ss!
Kerry as Secretary of State: Because the world just isn´t laughing at us enough already!

The Piaps lays low for a while to wash her Benghazi laundry and get ready for 2016. Holdie keeps Fast and Furious (Mexico and Benghazi) out of sight.

Terrazzo married a genuine Republican Senator John Heinz.
She is the one who married money and then defiles her husbands memory by using HIS moneymtomfund Tides and every left leaning anti-American cause that her treasonous Gigalo personifies.
He is the best traitor money can buy.
Query: do John Heinz´s children realize that their mother defiles his memory every day with her marriage and her support of leftist causes?
Didn´t Kerry go from sleeping on friends couches to many mansions rather quickly after Sen, Heinz´s suspicious accident? Opportunistic fraud.

O-Care premiums to skyrocket
The Hill, by Elise Viebeck    Original Article
Posted By: FlyRight- 3/19/2014 7:22:26 AM     Post Reply
Health industry officials say ObamaCare-related premiums will double in some parts of the country, countering claims recently made by the administration. The expected rate hikes will be announced in the coming months amid an intense election year, when control of the Senate is up for grabs. The sticker shock would likely bolster the GOP’s prospects in November and hamper ObamaCare insurance enrollment efforts in 2015. The industry complaints come less than a week after Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius sought to downplay concerns about rising premiums in the healthcare sector. She told lawmakers rates would increase in 2015 but

Why de Blasio can’t ban horse carriages

Mayor de Blasio can fight with the groundhog. He can fight with the governor. He can fight with charter-school lady Eva Moskowitz. But on this St. Patrick’s Day, he’d be wise to drop his fight with the Irish. De Blasio promised last year that his first act as mayor would be to kill 300 middle-class jobs, many held by Irish immigrants. “Here it goes,” he pledged. “First thing, it’s time to ban horse carriages in New York.” Why? The horses are well-treated, as everybody (except the don’t-bother-us-with-facts folks at PETA) knows by now.Simple. A tiny cadre of donors showered the mayor with

Investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson tweeted five simple words last week: “I resigned from CBS News.” Seconds later, a website report explained why. Sources say she felt frustrated with the network’s “liberal bias.” If true, in a nutshell, she had become a square peg in a round hole, and was tired of pretending otherwise.Another reporter did the math. From the time Attkisson started covering topics critical of the Obama administration, like Benghazi and the government’s "Fast and Furious" gun walking program, her face time on the network dropped off.I hid my beliefs in the name of the news gods.Based on these

Back in September, John Kerry told Washington Democrats that America faced a “Munich moment” in deciding how to respond to Syria’s use of chemical weapons. He called Bashar al-Assad a “two-bit dictator” who would commit more atrocities unless he was stopped.Right idea, wrong war. The real Munich moment of our times is taking place in Ukraine.Vladimir Putin is on the march, and there’s no telling how far he’ll go if he’s allowed to gobble up Crimea without paying a serious price. That is the lesson of Munich, the infamous agreement in 1938 when Britain’s Neville Chamberlain struck a deal with

Rupert Murdoch, the newly single media tycoon, has acquired the triplex penthouse that crowns One Madison, the 60-story sliver of bronze glass designed by CetraRuddy, for $43,010,000. A 6,850-square-foot sponsor unit, it was the most expensive sale of the week, according to city records.The listing price for the condominium, on the southeast side of Madison Square Park at East 22nd Street, had been $50 million. But Mr. Murdoch preferred to buy it as raw space, in so-called white-box form, to orchestrate the finishing touches with his handpicked design team; hence the discount.

Plane crashes are always political. That principle is on full view in the discordant mystery of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, which grew even murkier on Thursday, with reports that the plane may have flown for four hours after contact was lost. That information was attributed to Obama Administration officials, who offered it to explain why American military assets might be deployed to a new body of water. The search has hopped from the Gulf of Thailand, crossing the breadth of the Malaysian peninsula to the Strait of Malacca, and now to the Indian Ocean. Malaysian authorities had denied a similar

With New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie stalled by the “Bridgegate” affair, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has become the establishment´s candidate and top pick to win the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, according to a new analysis of the race. “We now consider Bush the leader of the field if he decides to run,” said the influential “Crystal Ball” from the University of Virginia´s Center for Politics. “In recent months, we’ve noticed an unmistakable and widespread desire among some of the Republicans we talk to, particularly ones who would be classified as members of the establishment on and off Capitol Hill, for a third Bush nominee in less than three decades.

(Video) The Obama ladies are in the house — the house of China, that is. First lady Michelle Obama, her two daughters, Malia and Sasha, and her mother touched down Thursday in China for what’s being touted as a weeklong feel-good tourist event, amid increasing murmurs back home about U.S. taxpayers having to foot the bill. Mrs. Obama is supposed to use her visit for soft diplomacy only, and shy from the more controversial topics that plague U.S.-China relations, namely human rights and economics. No reporters accompanied the family on the trip. “The nature of her visit is really quite

“Obamacare” as shorthand for the Affordcable Care Act was first used mostly by critics of the law, but now everyone’s using the moniker and President Obama has long since embraced it. But apparently no one told Nancy Pelosi, because she’s still ticked off at how much people talk about “Obamacare” instead of the “Affordable Care Act.” In response to a reporter asking a question about Obamacare being a political winner or loser, Pelosi said, “By the way, it’s called the Affordable Care Act. It’s called the Affordable Care Act. I know you didn’t intend any compliment or derogatory––it’s called the

Is Barack Obama simply too busy to be Chief Executive of the United States? Apparently. One of the primary functions of the president is to keep the nation safe, to preserve it from its enemies. To do that effectively, one would actually have to maintain something of a consistent level of attention to the moving pieces that directly influence how future events will unfold. None other than the truly sycophantic thinks for a second that President Obama cares a whit for anything that does not involve fundamentally altering the social composition of this country. Or golf. During the five-plus years

Secretary of State John Kerry called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday morning to protest insults the Israeli defense minister directed at the Obama administration this week, the State Department said. In a speech at Tel Aviv University on Monday, Moshe Ya’alon criticized President Obama for having a weak foreign policy, and said Israel could no longer rely on the United States to lead nuclear negotiations with Iran. “Secretary Kerry spoke with Prime Minister Netanyahu this morning. And he protested to him his concerns about these comments,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters Wednesday. The U.S., Psaki reaffirmed, maintains an “unshakable

President Barack Obama said Wednesday that he thinks Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick “would make a great president or vice president.” Obama and Patrick, both Democrats, are friends and close political allies. The two men have campaigned for each other, with Patrick acting as a surrogate for Obama nationally during the 2012 presidential race. Patrick has said clearly that he intends to return to the private sector when his second term as governor is up at the end of the year and will not run for president in 2016. But he has not ruled out a run for office in the

Black students are more likely to be suspended from U.S. public schools — even as tiny preschoolers. The racial disparities in American education, from access to high-level classes and experienced teachers to discipline, were highlighted in a report released Friday by the Education Department´s civil rights arm. The suspensions — and disparities — begin at the earliest grades. Black children represent about 18 percent of children in preschool programs in schools, but they make up almost half of the preschoolers who are suspended more than once, the report said. Six percent of the nation´s districts with preschools reported suspending at

Ellen DeGeneres was a completely slavish toady to President Obama as he appeared on her show to sell Obamacare -- not to young people, but to mothers. The president made his pitch to "especially all the moms out there who may have young people – 26, 27, do not have health insurance, but they think they’re invincible and nothing’s ever going to happen to ‘em – what we’ve said is you never know what life is going to throw at ya."

College basketball can wait. Did you know that March is actually National Nutrition Month? Today, First Lady Michelle Obama urged Americans via her "Let´s Move!" initiative to challenge their family members to eat one new fruit or vegetable per week in March to faithfully observe the occasion. "March is National Nutrition Month and you can celebrate by challenging your family to try a new fruit or vegetable each week," First Lady Michelle Obama said in an e-mail to supporters today. Never mind that there were less than two "each weeks" left in National Nutrition Month when the e-mail challenge was

Michelle Obama arrived in China on Thursday for a weeklong visit that will steer clear of politics and instead focusing on education and community. [Snip] On Friday, she is to spend the day with Peng Liyuan, the wife of Chinese President Xi Jinping, something which diplomats hope will build bridges between the two countries. ´I think this is a very good opportunity to improve the China-U.S. relations, as the first lady can represent the soft side of diplomacy,´ said Wang Dong, a political scientist at Peking University´s School of International Studies. ´Michelle Obama herself has been accomplished in areas such as

Warm temperatures, colorful wildflowers. What´s not to like, about early signs of spring? Climate scientists at NASA say these early signs could be tied to global warming, and the consequences are troubling. 9NEWS talked to NASA scientist Dr. Compton Tucker at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland. He said that on average, the last frost of the year is happening about five days earlier than it did just five decades ago. Tucker said his conclusions are drawn from a fleet of Earth-observing satellites that have been monitoring our planet for more than 40 years. That satellite data combined with

Today’s Washington Post features an article by Steven Mufson and Juliet Eilperin headlined, “The biggest lease holder in Canada’s oil sands isn’t Exxon Mobil or Chevron. It’s the Koch brothers.” The article was based on a newly-issued two-page report by the far-left International Forum on Globalization. The Post reported: You might expect the biggest lease owner in Canada’s oil sands, or tar sands, to be one of the international oil giants, like Exxon Mobil or Royal Dutch Shell. But that isn’t the case. The biggest lease holder in the northern Alberta oil sands is a subsidiary of Koch Industries, the privately-owned
