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.

Monday night, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes used an essay on Slate about the Bundy Ranch standoff and race as a jumping off point to discuss how this story would be different if rancher Cliven Bundy’s armed supporters were black. “When is it that people take up arms against the federal or state government, point their arms at federal agents and face no consequence for it?” Hayes asked. “The answer is to that is hardly ever.” Hayes went on to imagine how Fox News react to the New Black Panthers if they decided to “greet law enforcement with long guns.” Or what if the

BUNKERVILLE, Nev. — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says “something is going to happen” to get Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy to stop letting his cattle graze on federal land. “It’s obvious that you can’t just walk away from this. And we can speculate all we want to speculate to what’s going to happen next,” Reid told KSNV-TV. “But I don’t think it’s going to be tomorrow that something is going to happen, but something will happen. We are a nation of laws, not of men and women.” Reid called militias staying at Bundy’s Bunkerville ranch “domestic violent terrorist-wannabes.” Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev.,

Attorney General Eric Holder criticized drug sentences doled out under “the old regime” in a video Monday announcing the Obama administration’s “Clemency Project 2014.” “In 2010, President Obama signed the Fair Sentencing Act reducing unfair disparities in sentences imposed on people for offenses involving different forms of cocaine. But there’s still too many people in federal prison who were sentenced under the old regime and who, as a result, will have to spend far more time in prison than they would if sentenced today for exactly the same crime. This is simply not right,” Holder says in the video. President Obama could

Corruption: The senator who once guarded funding for a cowboy poetry festival in his home state now thinks those who stand in the way of his family´s increasing fortunes for defending their land are domestic terrorists. Cliven Bundy now finds himself being called a "domestic terrorist" for disputing the payment of grazing fees to a federal government he believes does not or at least should not own the 84% of Nevada that his cattle graze upon. "Those people who hold themselves out to be patriots are not. They´re nothing more than domestic terrorists," said Sen. Harry Reid last Thursday. "I repeat: What

After Breitbart Texas reported on the U.S. Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) intent to seize 90,000 acres belonging to Texas landholders along the Texas/Oklahoma line, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott questioned the BLM’s authority to take such action. “I am about ready,” General Abbott told Breitbart Texas, “to go to go to the Red River and raise a ‘Come and Take It’ flag to tell the feds to stay out of Texas.” Gen. Abbott sent a strongly-worded letter to BLM Director Neil Kornze, asking for answers to a series of questions related to the potential land grab. “I am deeply concerned about the

Although this editorial was written more than 20 years ago, just replace "Clinton" with "Obama," and it all applies perfectly to ObamaCare, from the phony promises to the bogus financing scheme to the massive new bureaucracy. It was this editorial and as many as 100 more like it in IBD that helped spare the nation the tragedy that would have been HillaryCare. The 246-page first draft of President Clinton´s health care reform proposal tells us plenty about the type of people in the White House these days.

´Imperial presidency" perfectly describes what the Obama administration has become as it increasingly violates the limits on its power defined by the Constitution. Criticisms of how President Obama is overstepping his authority are now being heard from all sides of the political spectrum. A remarkable 33-page report posted on the Internet by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor proves how imperial the Obama administration has become. This easy-to-read report, which can be downloaded from majorityleader.gov, details dozens of examples where the current occupant of the White House is exercising powers that the Constitution doesn´t give him.

The American middle class, long the most affluent in the world, has lost that distinction. While the wealthiest Americans are outpacing many of their global peers, a New York Times analysis shows that across the lower- and middle-income tiers, citizens of other advanced countries have received considerably larger raises over the last three decades. After-tax middle-class incomes in Canada — substantially behind in 2000 — now appear to be higher than in the United States. The poor in much of Europe earn more than poor Americans. The numbers, based on surveys conducted over the past 35 years, offer some of the most detailed

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.

"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.

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.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

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

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing
