After strike deal on Syria,
Kerry says him calling it
impossible was ´diplomacy´

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 9/14/2013 3:12:21 PM

Secretary of State John Kerry said Saturday, after reaching a tentative agreement with Russia to disarm Syria of chemical weapons, that his earlier statement about the impossibility of such a plan was in fact “the language of diplomacy.” “I purposefully made the statements,” Kerry said in Geneva, Switzerland, after reaching the framework of an agreement with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. “And I did indeed say it was impossible and [Syrian President Bashar al-Assad] won´t do it, even as I hoped it would be possible and wanted him to do it. And the language of diplomacy sometimes requires that you put

Oh sure, we knew that was his intent all along. Next thing, he will tell us that obama and Putin were just playing "bad cop, good cop" with Assad. These crap weasels in our White House have no shame....they were bested by the Russians (as much as I hate to admit it)and the world knows it.

The most successful negotiation is not only to get the other side to do what you want, but to have them take ownership that it was their idea all along.

"There is no limit to what a man can do so long as he does not care a straw who gets the credit for it." - Charles Edward Montague. Pres. Truman and BB Coach John Wooden have similar quotes attributed to them.

So far, both Mr. Putin and the Emperor now own the position of what we the people (who vehemently opposed military involvement in Syria - remember?) wanted all along.

It ain´t over by a long shot, but it´s a step in the right direction and our sons and daughters are out of this fight.

Now, about Iran ...

#18 Conservative turnout for Romney was better than he deserved after throwing the third debate. The Obamanation won due to massive voter fraud in key districts of blue states. We no longer have free, open and honest elections. I for one am getting damn tired of “voters who stay home because they don’t like whose on the Republican ticket” carp. After the election GOP apologists started this meme quoting 2 million stayed home and lately I’ve seen that number jump to 4 and 6 million. Its not “purist” conservatives staying home that loses Republicans elections, its that the Republicans don’t stand for any recognizable principles. They, like Obama, blame everyone and everything for their losses except themselves.

Dole, Bush, McPain, Romney. I’ve cast my last vote for a “Republican” unless they somehow stumble into becoming an opposition party. When the Dims are in the minority they don’t seem to have any trouble causing a ruckus and putting up roadblocks. It is beyond obvious that true Americans have no representation as long as the GOP insists on framing themselves as “not as bad as the Democrats”. The government has become the enemy of the people and the Republicans are just as much a part of it as the radical socialists.

We need a real Robin Hood, not the false one the socialists invented. The real Robin Hood did not “steal from the rich to give to the poor”. He liberated the property of the people that had been stolen by the king and the Sheriff of Nottingham (government) through unjust taxes. Robin Hood fought the tyranny of the monarchy on behalf of the right of the people to enjoy the fruits of their labor. I don’t see anything like that coming from the Republican “leadership”.

Kerry: "Let´s make sure I get credit for this. And when do I get my Purple Heart for it?"

#5: Nice. Shows you understand the nuance, how today´s leaders surpass Luddites like T.R.

#7: Let me suggest that Kerry is in fact pointing out to himself his superbness and elitedom. Or is it elitedomness and superbdom?

#9: Another good one. Thanks.

#15, #16: Remember, the most common reason given for going to J-school [BTW, is that an oxymoron?] is "to change the world." [Really. They do say that.]

#17, #19: One difference between your examples and Kerry is that Kerry doesn´t even know what he did that "he meant to do."

#36: Good post, good points [if I understand you correctly; I think I do].

Vote? Yes. It´s our only tool today short of... well, it´s our most practical tool today.

I agree, we have more and better reasons to vote than are usually cited. They are in part why I have never, ever missed an election at any level. You touch on a major one -- vote fraud by the Left. They have built vote fraud/election fraud [we have to include their fund-raising frauds] into a major industry. Bigger turnout especially by principled, real conservatives [not "I´ll take my ball and go home" whiners] is perhaps the first available tool to counter vote-count fraud. We also have to go after and win important offices like state-level AGs [who make critical prosecutorial policy], and Sec States [who decide who gets on the ballot]. We have to vote now because every election is an opportunity to impose a term-limit on RINOs like McCain and Graham, and all the Dems.

Plus the old observation, "If you aren´t part of the solution, you´re part of the problem."

Last from me for now -- those who don´t vote [really? There was no one on the entire ballot "pure" enough to be awarded your vote? Really? Wow, you´re special!] forfeit their right to complain.

"One of the penalties of refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors."

#36, I have to disagree with most of your points...

People should know for whom to vote without watching any debates.
Debates are for the undecided.
It is obvious already that someone like Romney will manage just about everything better than an O-Bomber would.
We all knew which of the two major party nominees for president was the more
conservative candidate. That´s who you vote for.

Analysis during the months since the election has shown that the DimWitz
found ways to motivate a much higher turnout among older black women.
That category of voter turned out in higher numbers than certain white voter categories.
That has never happened before.

Rush promulgated the silly fiction that "The Establishment" forced Romney onto an
unwilling party... total fiction... Romney got more primary votes than all other
GOP candidates combined.

The primaries are how people can avoid letting the establishment pick nominees.
In 1960, JFK used the primaries to get himself nominated, because the party bosses
would never have picked him.
That is the route that everyone must go now, ever since. That´s how O-Bomber beat Clinton.

Rush endorsed Romney in 2008.
There was no valid reason to withhold support as Rush appeared to do in 2012.

The whiny stupidity Rush offered was that since the Tea Party had a big impact on
the 2010 midterms, therefore the Tea Party should get to nominate the candidate
in the 2012 election.
But... even a dunce should know that a presidential primary is not a midterm.
Fat crybabies just have to have their way and complain.

This is why we have a Wannabe Kommie Dicktater in office...
Instead of a President Romney who said during the campaign...
"We have a moral obligation not to spend more than we take in."

It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) don’t like one another. They battle regularly over legislation and their Senate floor fights over arcane-but-important rules have become must-see entertainment for senatorial insiders. According to aides in both parties, the two leaders have not had a one-on-one sitdown to discuss legislation (or anything else) since late last year. Nowadays, all business is conducted on the phone or in brief discussions on the Senate floor. Part of that feud is political – Democrats targeted McConnell in 2008, Republicans targeted Reid in 2010, Democrats

Jews have reportedly been told to ´register´ with pro-Russian forces in the east Ukrainian city of Donetsk. They were also told they would need to provide a list of property they own as well as being ordered to pay a fee or face the threat of deportation. U.S. officials in Washington say leaflets bearing the chilling order have recently appeared in the city amid pro and anti-Russian protests as tensions rise in the area. It comes after Jews leaving a synagogue in the city of Donetsk were reportedly told they had to ´register´ with Ukranians trying to make the city part of Russia.United

In his column earlier this week, the Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens laid out his case against Rand Paul becoming the GOP’s presidential nominee. It was a powerful indictment and perhaps one worth building on. Mr. Stephens highlighted what he believes would be some of the obstacles facing Senator Paul, beginning with his long political association with Jack Hunter, alias the “Southern Avenger,” who among other things wrote an April 13, 2004 column titled “John Wilkes Booth Was Right.” The “Southern Avenger” said this: Although Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth’s heart was in the right place, the Southern Avenger does regret that Lincoln’s

WEST, Texas—Block by block, schools, homes and businesses are steadily being pieced back together here, a year after a blast at a fertilizer depot laid waste to much of the town. But the mental wounds suffered by residents are proving much harder to heal. Army veteran Joshua Zarecor was at an apartment complex near the West Fertilizer Co. facility, watching firefighters battle a blaze there last April 17, when the plant suddenly exploded, shattering glass in the complex and causing its walls to collapse. Misty Lambert, 38 years old, who had moved to West several weeks earlier, said she had invited Mr.

"The heavens reek, the waters below are foul ... we are in a crisis of survival." That´s how Walter Cronkite and CBS hyped the first Earth Day, back in 1970. Somehow we´ve survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers. Great—but now we´re told that we´re in big trouble because greenhouse gases cause global warming. I mean, climate change. "Crop yields are

The Stupid Hounding of Condi Rice

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

As a "government drone" hovers over Matt Rosendale, the Republican House candidate from Montana tells the camera what he thinks of government overreach, regulation, and "spying on our citizens." Then, standing in front of an ATV, Rosendale coolly puts a rifle to his shoulder, looks up through the sight and "downs" the drone with a single shot. "The federal government is too big and too powerful," Rosendale says. "I´m ready to stand tall for freedom and get Washington out of our lives," he says. Rosendale is trying to stand out in a five-way primary for Montana´s at-large seat in the House. Sporting a barn

A story is told about Robert L. Bartley, late editor of the Wall Street Journal, and his penchant for long silences. He is supposed to have once taken a job applicant to lunch at which, though the two shared a meal, neither spoke a syllable. That is no doubt apocryphal; the job applicant probably said something. George Washington had a taciturn streak, as did President Coolidge, known as “Silent Cal.” (Snip)But rarely does anyone get as upset about it as Jeffrey Toobin of the New Yorker appears to be in respect of Clarence Thomas. Toobin came unglued at the disinclination of

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

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

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

FORT WORTH — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis will undergo neck surgery today, her campaign said Tuesday. “After experiencing shoulder and right arm pain in recent weeks, Sen. Davis will have a routine surgical procedure to remove bone spurs and degenerative discs that are creating compression on the nerves in her neck,” campaign spokesman Zac Petkanas said in a statement Tuesday. “This is a common issue experienced by runners and endurance athletes,” he said. Davis, of Fort Worth, will undergo the outpatient surgery at the Fort Worth Brain and Spine Institute. Dr. Thomas Ellis will perform the
