Senator John Kerry: Syria Committed To Mideast Peace
“Show me your friends, and I tell you who you are.” U.S. Senator John Kerry says Syria is committed to engaging in peace making and is essential to the process. The Democratic senator, who is the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told reporters after a three-hour meeting with President Bashar Assad Thursday that Washington is also concerned about the flow of weapons to | Read More »
Waiting In The Wings.
That’s not just the title of my fav CD by Seventh Wonder……. It’s also a way to describe what’s next on the Marxist Jihadi Administration’s agenda and a collection of news stories from around the world. — — — — — — — — — — But for starters, a bit of a love-fest, as Jim Hoft has a very interesting video clip over at | Read More »

Lindsey Gr-Amnesty, RINO Extraordinaire.
I wish someone would tell me why this character should have a single Republican member of Congress listen to him, much less be influenced by a single word emanating from his smarmy mouth. In his latest essay in treacherous gum beating he’s let it be known that he’ll play deal maker on Guantanamo Bay. Lindsey Graham On Sunday, this cretin actually had the chutzpah to | Read More »
I Thank God “Jon Carry” Isn’t President
John Kerry, Massachusett’s now-senior Senator (I wonder how long he’s wanted to be referred to that way), has decided that all other problems in the country are to be sidelined so that the United States can pass an amendment to the U.S. Constitution: As anger at last month’s Supreme Court decision that gutted decades of campaign finance laws continues to build on Capitol Hill, Senator | Read More »
Obudget? Oh, Brother! Hold On To Your Wallets – Job Destroyer Inc.
I’m running out of superlatives again. It’s getting to be a barometer of NATIONAL LUNACY, as played out by the White House and the Congressional Clown College. While Obama is taxing the exact segment of the population where job growth is created, just about guaranteeing negative job growth in the private sector, the House Madam, Nancy Pelosi, is spending millions of taxpayer dollars in travel, | 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 »
“There’s only one way to stop Iran” (published in the NY Times!)
A nuclear Iran is the elephant in the room that very few of us seem to be talking about. I discussed this here recently (WAKE UP, MR PRESIDENT!). Imagine my surprise when I see that a sensible solution is promoted in Thursday’s New York Times, no less, by a director of the Nuclear Proliferation Prevention Program at the University of Texas at Austin (near where | Read More »
U.S. Senate to Commit Harry-Kerry
Saturday’s scheduled vote in the Senate for cloture on the motion to proceed (a vote to begin debate on a bill), although innocently claimed to be strictly procedural, will really enable at-risk Democrats to vote for the healthcare bill, without really voting for it. According to a study of voting patterns, more than 97 percent of all bills that are first subject to a cloture | Read More »
The Kennedy Institute for Screwing our Troops
I guess it could also be the ‘Kennedy Institute for Screwing our Servicemembers’ or KISS, but, whatever. The Times is reporting that: Senators diverted $2.6 billion in funds in a defense spending bill to pet projects largely at the expense of accounts that pay for fuel, ammunition and training for U.S. troops, including those fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to an analysis. Earmarks | Read More »
Bipartisan Kinds of Guys
They ain’t my flavor, to say the least. The battle lines on this internal squabble are well known at this point. You have those who firmly believe that only by the GOP consciously shifting its priorities and platform to the left of the political spectrum can we ever win again (see e.g., David Frum, David Brooks, Meghan McCain). Then there are those of us who | 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 »
John Kerry Looks At The Bright Side Of The Recession
When you’re rich, really eight-figure inherited/married wealth rich, a recession means you might opt for the pre-owned Gulfstream IV over the new. If only to let the little people know that you feel their pain. When you’re poor, bad times threaten your job, your family, your health, or your life. Bad times hurt people at the margins. The liberal ruling class displays an astonishingly callous | 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 »
John Kerry Sounds Obama’s Afghanistan Call to Retreat
John Kerry had an op-ed in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal titled Testing Afghanistan Assumptions, wherein he carefully laid out a path for President Obama to retreat from his hawkish pre-election statements to a path of defeat. Beyond diminishing General McChrystal’s ability to provide fair and accurate information, the Senior Senator from Massachusetts basically throws him under the bus saying – As the commander on the | Read More »
A Legislative Flip Flop Outrageous Even By Massachusetts Standards
From The Political and Financial Markets Commentator Political Expediency At Its Worst Back in 2004, when it appeared that John Kerry might be reporting for duty at the White House, the Democrats in Massachusetts feared that Governor Romney would use his powers to name a Republican to the potentially vacant U.S. Senate seat. To prevent this from happening, the state legislature, led by the Democrat | Read More »
