John Kerry: Freedom
Makes It Hard to Govern

American Thinker, by Todd Konrad

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 8/25/2013 9:36:35 AM

Speaking before a group of State Department workers last week, Secretary of State John Kerry gave voice to the frustration authoritarians experience because of the easy access to information on the internet. Secretary Kerry told the audience that the world had been "complicated" by "... this little thing called the internet and the ability of people everywhere to communicate instantaneously and to have more information coming at them in one day than most people can process in months or a year." This pesky internet, Kerry says, "makes it much harder to govern, makes it much harder to organize people, much harder

makes it much harder to organize people


Not necessarily so! Depends on who you want to organize - and for what purpose.

I recall back during the Clinton administration - internet wasn´t half as useful as it is now - there were pretty good protests organized in favor of impeachment. I was at a few of them!

In fact, when the first group appeared in WDC at the WH - the police approached and asked if they were the "internet protest."

What he really meant was, Freedom makes it hard to Rule!

Who was it that said the Mulatto Marxist would be ready to RULE on day one?

He rules by fiat. The RINOs don´t see any need to challenge him or put a stop to it, so Freedom obviously isn´t an obstacle for him. Not when you have a willing Congress --with the exception of a handful of Patriots.

The Internet doesn´t make it harder to govern. It makes it harder to RULE. Of course, someone like John Kerry does not know the difference between those two words.

Typical sloppy thinking of a leftist.

The "Rule of Law" places many important restraints on government not "Freedom".

In fact, freedom makes governing easier because the government is not required to make every little decision for everyone everyday.

Freedom for the people also frees the government from a zillion problems that totalitarian regimes struggle with and fail at.

George Clooney has confessed to calling Las Vegas gambling mogul Steve Wynn an ´a**hole´ and storming off at a recent dinner because the casino-owner insulted President Barack Obama. The verbal assault occurred two weeks ago when the two-time Oscar winner was in Vegas promoting his Casamigos tequila, and was invited to dine with Wynn and his wife, Andrea Hissom, at the fancy Botero restaurant inside the 72-year-old´s Encore hotel. But when dinner was finished, the conversation turned to Obama´s Affordable Care Act, of which Wynn is a vocal opponent. That´s when sparks began to fly. Clooney immediately took exception to how the billionaire

A prominent Japanese politician has raised hackles as Barack Obama visits Tokyo by claiming it´s an ´open secret´ that he and the first lady are headed for divorce, and that the president has been using Secret Service agents to cover for him as he pursues extramarital affairs. Kazuyuki Hamada, who sits in the upper house of Japan´s parliament, earned his PhD a half-mile from the White House at George Washington University, and emerged as a shrill commentator on America´s economy and foreign policy. In 2009 he also joined the ranks of the so-called ´birthers,´ arguing in a book titled ´Who is Obama?´

WASHINGTON — The principle that all Internet content should be treated equally as it flows through cables and pipes to consumers looks all but dead. Companies like Disney, Google or Netflix will be allowed to pay Internet service providers like Comcast and Verizon for special, faster lanes to send video and other content to their customers under new rules to be proposed by the Federal Communications Commission, the agency said on Wednesday. The proposed rules are a turnaround for the agency on what is known as net neutrality — the idea that Internet users should have equal ability to see any legal

The federal student loan program is becoming so costly to taxpayers that even President Obama is pretending to fix it. Readers will recall Mr. Obama as the man who has spent much of his Presidency expanding this program, creating new ways for borrowers to avoid repayment, and then campaigning about these dubious achievements on campuses nationwide. Now Team Obama is acknowledging that his policies are turning out to be more expensive than he claimed. Participation in federal debt-forgiveness programs is surging. In a mere six months the number of borrowers who´ve signed up for such plans has increased to more than

The Affordable Care Act´s Independent Payment Advisory Board has been so heavily criticized for being an unaccountable body with the power to effectively ration Medicare services that many congressional Democrats no longer support it. IPAB´s bureaucratic cousin—the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation—deserves the same treatment. Both institutions are in place to preserve rather than reform Medicare´s traditional, and broken, fee-for-service Medicare program. They both also embrace the ObamaCare technocratic mind-set. IPAB´s 15 supposed experts (yet to be nominated by the Obama administration) are charged with governing a program with more than 50 million enrollees. The unstated yet clear agenda is to

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Wednesday that immigrants living in the United States illegally are not going home, and that the U.S. has no practical way of forcing them to leave. "They´re not going home. And so why don´t we give them a path to citizenship," McCain asked at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy Jr. forum. "There are not enough buses to deport them," he added. "It´s de facto amnesty." The senator, who has pushed for immigration reform, said once Congress passes legislation he believes it will be named after the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.). Kennedy and McCain had worked on a comprehensive

Things got ugly a couple of weeks ago among the bubbled one-percent when fading movie star George Clooney and casino billionaire Steve Wynn engaged in a war of words over President Barack Obama. Wynn said the blow up happened while he was having dinner with Clooney and a few others in Las Vegas. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that according to Wynn, he criticized the Affordable Care Act during dinner and Clooney had a "hissy fit." "When he´s drinking," Wynn adds, Clooney "considers himself a close personal buddy of the president." Clooney doesn´t deny the confrontation. Clooney´s version of events, released through his

Hillary Clinton Again Calls Benghazi

BOSTON – Hillary Clinton reiterated Wednesday that her darkest time as secretary of state was the deadly 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Mrs. Clinton, in a speech to more than 3,000 people at a women’s leadership conference here, called the attack and loss of lives “very, very painful” and “certainly the biggest regret that I have as secretary of state.” She noted that she had taken responsibility for security at the diplomatic outpost, where Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans died, and had pledged to do everything she could to ensure a similar tragedy won’t happen again.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is attacking his GOP primary opponent with a new television ad, a highly unusual move for a sitting member of House leadership that demonstrates he is taking the threat from his right back home more seriously than past months. The ad criticizes his opponent, Randolph-Macon economics professor David Brat, for a tangential association with former Democratic Gov. Tim Kaine, who proposed raising taxes while he was in office. But a top Virginia official says the association is fleeting at best. “College professor David Brat is running against our conservative congressman Eric Cantor,” a narrator reads to kick

In The Nation magazine MSNBC host Christopher Hayes spent thousands of words and four web pages explaining how those working at preventing global warming are somehow just like the abolitionists who fought to free the slaves just prior to the American Civil War. Calling it a "new abolitionism," Hayes opens his article rehashing the South´s "peculiar institution," pegging its long life to "so much goddamn money." Then he segues into likening today´s global warming alarmists to those moralists and abolitionists of old. After 11 paragraphs of making this comparison, Hayes then weakly states, "So before anyone misunderstands my point, let me be

One oddity of the current economic debate is that the more Barack Obama´s incompetent income-redistribution policies have failed, the more the left calls for more government-intervention policies to correct for the deficiencies of the earlier rounds. American middle-income families have lost nearly $3,000 in purchasing power since 2007, and the left´s only solution to get us out of the rut is more debt, more social-welfare spending, more income redistribution and higher taxes on the rich and big business. That´s the conclusion of French economist Thomas Piketty, whose new book called "Capitalism in the 21st Century" is suddenly the new rallying cry

The Cliven Bundy case in Nevada provides many insights into the state of our nation with respect to the relationship between the people and the government. The Bundys appear to be honorable American citizens without adequate legal counsel to help resolve a federal land issue about which they disagree with the Bureau of Land Management. Without question, they violated some of the innumerable laws and regulations that continue to entangle every aspect of American life. Their violations certainly could have been handled through a multitude of less brutal means than those employed by the federal government, which through the mouthpiece of Sen.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen.

The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Jeb Bush said Wednesday he´s "thinking about running for president," in his most direct statement yet about a possible 2016 run. The former Florida governor spoke at a Catholic school benefit in New York Wednesday morning. He previously has said he´ll make a decision on whether to run for president before the end of this year, making clear that he was considering the possibility. But his comments on Wednesday appeared to be more direct. Asked what his "immediate plans" were, he said, according to an attendee: "I´m thinking about running for president."
