Former John Kerry staffer John Kiriakou arrested for blowing CIA agents’ cover.
Mind you, you wouldn’t know that from the Washington Post’s article on the arrest of John Kiriakou. While the Washington Post – from appearances, somewhat reluctantly – reported that Kiriakou (a former CIA officer and Senate Foreign Affairs staffer) had been arrested for revealing names, operations and investigations to the media back in 2008-2009, the paper completely neglected to mention who Kiriakou ended up working | Read More »
Kerry’s tax avoiding: right idea, wrong reason.
I agree and disagree with John Hinderaker about John Kerry, Millionaire (he owns a mansion and a yacht). The basic background: Senator Kerry (D, MA) built and bought a yacht overseas and has parked it outside of Massachusetts so as to avoid paying Massachusetts taxes on it, which are fairly significant. At least, he was: now that he’s been caught Kerry is making it-was-a-big-misunderstanding noises. | Read More »
Only Kerry would go to Iran.
(H/T: Hot Air) It’s bad when you have somebody from this administration wincing at a proposed foreign relations move: Sen. John Kerry has suggested becoming the first high-level U.S. emissary to make a public visit to Tehran since the 1979 Islamic revolution, a move White House officials say they won’t oppose. “…say they won’t oppose.” How… bloodless… a response. And how quick the administration was | Read More »
The Honduras article Sen. Kerry (D, MA) didn’t want you to see.
(Via Dan Collins of POWIP) Senator Jim DeMint (R, SC) is back from Honduras – despite the best efforts of the Democrats to stop him from going – and he’s unkind about what has been pretty obviously an attempt by the American government to admit that we made a mistake and picked the wrong side of the Honduras issue: [American policy re: the Zelaya ouster] | Read More »
More like ‘DeMint *schools* Kerry over Honduras.’
(Via Jen Rubin) Let’s review (I almost did this using an extended metaphor of a fencing match, but I didn’t want actual fencers wincing): Sen. John Kerry is the Democratic point man in Foreign Relations for this administration’s messed-up Honduras policy. He is, in fact, the Foreign Relations chair… which tells you how seriously the Democrats take this committee (i.e., they don’t). Sen. Jim DeMint | Read More »
Mental Parasite-free Kerry all caught up to AT LEAST 2006!
If you’re into science fiction at all, you’ve probably come across the concept of the Puppet Masters: creatures, usually alien (although sometimes demonic), that insidiously take over people and make them into organic robots with no free will or volition. Staple of the genre, in fact – but one thing that never really got addressed in the books or movies is what happened to long-term | Read More »
IRS puts tax lien on Kerry’s 2004 campaign.
(Via NTCNews‘ sidebar) Good luck with getting that resolved, Senator: WASHINGTON (AP) — The Internal Revenue Service has filed a $819,848 tax lien against Sen. John Kerry’s 2004 presidential campaign, but Kerry on Wednesday blamed an IRS clerical error for the claim and said his campaign owes no tax penalties. The Massachusetts Democrat said the IRS mishandled payroll tax forms that he said were correctly | Read More »
“Do the Right Thing.”
We spoke briefly with candidate Jeff Beatty, who is opposing John Kerry for Senator of Massachusetts. He, unlike Senator Kerry, is a non-career politician; business owner, former Delta Force, FBI Hostage Rescue, CIA counter-terrorism. Pic here. His central issues in this campaign are families (exemplified by high gas prices, which he would combat by a truly comprehensive energy development program, including drilling); jobs (exacberated by | Read More »
We’re just going to nip these rumors in the bud.
Now, we know that there are now, and always have been, a good deal of nasty stories that go through the Internet. In many ways, that’s what the Internet is for, more’s the pity: and usually, the best that you can do about them is to ignore them with dignity and restraint – just like John Edwards did, at least after he emerged from the | Read More »
