Kerry is ‘respected in every corner’
Boston Herald, by Kimberly Atkins

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/22/2012 12:49:32 PM

WASHINGTON — With apologies to Jay-Z, President Obama has 99 problems, but John Kerry ain’t one. With a trip over the fiscal cliff all but inevitable, growing opposition to other rumored Obama appointment choices and a potentially bruising gun control battle on the president’s plate — at least Obama can take the gloves off when it comes to Kerry’s road to confirmation. First, Kerry will go before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which he currently chairs. Then, he’ll face the full Senate — full of folks with whom Kerry has worked for decades. Republicans call Kerry “Mr. Secretary.”

Kerry is not respected in our corner either, not for his throwing his medals away, not for his cheating on his taxes by mooring his boat in another state, not for his dovelike stands, etc,etc.

Horse Face Kerry is not, repeat, is not, respected in the military ranks nor in the military communities.

Sounds to me as thought the author has the sane warm fuzzy feeling down her leg for Kerry as Chris Matthews has for 0bama.

He is the great chicken of Vietnam. He couldn´t cut and run fast enough.

I didn´t even know the Senate had a working committee of Foreign Relations. I thought it was like the Senate Budget Committee that never meets.

Kerry is one of the few dumb enough to make Hillary look smart I guess.

A question that will never be asked: Senator Kerry, you were awarded 3 Purple Hearts during you 4 months in Vietnam. As Secretary of State, if you suffered from a stomach flu and possible mild concussion, do you think that you would be able to testify about the murder of our ambassador two weeks later?

Kimberly, you´re totally full of, well whatever it is, it isn´t truth!

This is one corner who loathes John Kerry and has lost all respect for those members of congress who approve of this nomination.

You may or may not believe the "swiftboaters" (I do), but his actions regarding the VVAW, his medal throwing/not throwing, his false testimony under oath in front of congress regarding atrocities, and his unapproved discussions with North Vietnam are all acts which should have landed him in jail, not congress.

Of course in either place he still consorts with criminals!

Giving Aid and Comfort to the enemy evidently qualifies one for serving this country now. We are in the sewer now. Traitors, tax cheats, liars, race baiters..plenty of room for Kerry.

The Senate has been described as a club, and clubbiness is why the traitor Kerry will easily be confirmed.

This club attitude, however, needs to be eradicated, in the interests of the American people-- preferably by Tea Party or conservative newcomers. November 2014 will come soon enough. Maybe we´ll get some good news in that election.

When Republicans call Kerry "Mr. Secretary," it is not in tribute to his wisdom and competence but rather a taunt about his lack of them, and to point out his obvious long-standing drooling over the thought of obtaining a Cabinet post.

Truly, one of the least qualified candidates for this post in my lifetime.

Didn´t the last time the media and Kerry tangled with the Swift Boaters teach them a lesson? Spineless cowards can´t stand up against real vets. And I also seem to remember the meme in O´s first campaign that ´finally, the world will respect us again´. What I want to know is, where is that respect? All I see is the world laughing their well dressed fannies off at the boy wonder. What they had against Bush was a combo of envy that he was Presidential in every sense, and a healthy uncomfortable fear that he meant what he said and said what he meant. Unlike Obama.

Consider the source. Atkins is one of two token lefties who write for the Boston Herald.

She can be counted on to write very favorable stuff about Democrat office holders, especially stories about Gov Deval Patrick, her fellow AA.

Peter Gelzinas is the other Herald leftie, about the only South Boston writer of that ilk.

“I think you have to go back centuries to find someone with the same gravitas that he brings to the job,” said Boston University professor and former U.S. Ambassador to Tanzania Charles Stith.

“He will be respected in ?every corner of the world.”
--------------------------

And just who, pray tell, is Charles Stith? Besides a Boston University professor and the former U.S. Ambassador to Tanzania? Thanks to the internet and Google, it is easy to find out.

It is also easy to refresh one´s memory about John Kerry´s despicable behavior during the Vietnam war and the so-called Winter Soldier investigation. Terrible slanders were voiced by Kerry and his buddies against U.S. troops. Claims were made that atrocities and butchery of civilians by American soldiers were routine and that they were the result of orders. These claims were thoroughly investigated by the U.S. military. Many of those who testified changed their stories, retracted them, admitted they were speculations, could not give substantiating details, etc. Not one single criminal prosecution could even be initiated as a result of exhaustive inquiry into the validity of these slanderous allegations of commonplace war crimes committed on orders.

Kerry and others lied about this. Anyone acquainted with the story of his Purple Hearts has no doubt he lied and exaggerated to obtain them. Practically all the men who knew and served with Kerry in Vietnam despised him as a schemer and phony. He is a gigolo. And he is not the brightest bulb in the Senate, which presently does not contain very much mental wattage to begin with.

Then there is the $7 million dollar yacht out of state docking to avoid $500,000 Massachusetts taxes story...

I´ve long reconciled myself to Jon as SOS - given that Hillary had so sullied the position that she would be such an easy act to follow. I was not, however, ready to see him as Sec Def - given his appalling record with the military.

So with Susan Rice´s crash-n-burn opening the slot for Lurch (who would also be a fine WH butler btw) and thus opening a vacancy in the Senate for another Scott Brown run, I can live with the nomination.

When a video of high school student Jeff Bliss calling out his teacher went viral, a lot of people started talking about the state of our education system and ways to improve it. However, almost a year since the video was posted, not much has changed. In fact, many would say that with the extension of Common Core curriculum across most of the country, it has actually gotten worse. Take this attempted explanation of Common Core’s approach to math: (Letter & Charts) How is this helping? Making word problems math situations more difficult to understand and contorting what would be

In man-on-the-street interviews held in front of the NRA’s headquarters in Virginia, anti-gun protestors shared some true gems of logic: Only law enforcement officers should be allowed to use weapons ~30,000 Americans die every year due to gun violence ~Gun violence is the NRA’s fault ~The majority of Americans want these (gun control) laws passed ~Only the second comment really deserves a response. In 2010, just over eleven thousand homicides in this country were due to the use of firearms. The thirty-thousand figure is composed of all deaths due to firearms, regardless of the situation, and the word ‘violent’ is

It´s not just carriage horse drivers saying neigh to plans for vintage cars tooling around Central Park. The Central Park Conservancy, the nonprofit organization that manages the city’s most famous greenspace, is coming out against a proposal backed by Mayor de Blasio to replace the horse-drawn carriages with replica old-time cars. Doug Blonsky, the conservancy’s president & CEO, told the Daily News that introducing the electric vehicles to the park would be a bad idea. “Forty million people visit Central Park each year, including runners, bicyclists, kids and dog owners,” Blonsky said Wednesday. “Adding vehicles to the mix will make the

Teen urinates in reservoir;

Shortly after 1 a.m. Wednesday, a 19-year-old in a hoodie and baggy jeans was captured on a grainy black-and-white surveillance video urinating into a reservoir that slakes the thirst of Portland, Ore.’s 600,000 or so residents. (Cue the disgusted “Ewwwwwwwws!” right here.) But really, Portland Water Bureau officials, do you have to flush 38 million gallons of potable water for the sake of a cup or two of human urine? That’s how much the bladder comfortably holds, although the bladder in question obviously wasn’t comfortable. We get the fact that Beervana prides itself on its water supply. The water bureau

BISMARCK, N.D. — A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law that bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they’re pregnant. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and that it “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge.” The state attorney general said he was looking at whether to appeal the decision by the Bismarck-based judge. North Dakota is among several conservative states that have passed new abortion restrictions in recent years, but abortion rights supporters called

The team behind the upcoming TV movie about convicted killer Kermit Gosnell counted on the public to help them fund their project. They said that the mainstream media and Hollywood didn´t give Gosnell´s horrific crimes the attention they deserved. The result? The most successful crowdfunding campaign in Indiegogo´s history, beating projects spearheaded by actors James Franco and Shemar Moore. Filmmakers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney credit the support of popular actors Kevin Sorbo and Nick Searcy for starring in videos promoting the project. McAleer and his wife Ann McElhinney have raised $907,460 to

After devoting 15 minutes to a Barack Obama interview in the last 24 hours, CBS piled on with another seven minutes devoted to a "scary powerful" top aide. Charlie Rose offered a puff piece on Alyssa Mastromonaco, Obama´s deputy chief of staff. The CBS This Morning co-anchor on Thursday offered no tough questions and instead repeatedly underlined just how important she is. Rose marveled, "You know what somebody called you? Scary powerful." The co-host narrated, "We recently spoke to her about her low profile, high power role. Every time I read a piece about you, it talks about power."

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

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

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

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

Thirty-seven percent think Obama lies “most of the time,” while another 24 percent say he lies “some of the time.” Twenty percent of voters say “only now and then” and 15 percent “never.” Click here for the poll results. President Obama has been accused by political opponents and media fact-checkers alike of telling falsehoods.
