Kerry gets overwhelming Senate
backing to lead State Department

Washington Post, by Anne Gearan

Original Article

Posted By:sagman, 1/30/2013 6:00:46 AM

The Senate overwhelmingly approved Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) as the next secretary of state Tuesday afternoon, with three Republican “no” votes. The vote was 94 to 3, clearing the way for Kerry to formally take over from Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Friday. He assumes the post amid a civil war in Syria that has killed an estimated 60,000 people, stalled nuclear negotiations with Iran and the spread of militancy across North Africa.

I would guess that the three "no" votes were "allowed" to those senators in consideration of their reelection efforts.

We can be sure the 3 "no" votes did not come from the Vietcong, the Sandinista or Saddam Hussein. After all, Kerry was there to defend them against the evil Americans when it counted.

First and foremost, the Senate is a very exclusive old boys club.

Kerry on Meet the Press

DAVID GREGORY: Welcome, sir.
KERRY: Morning, Tim. Heard you passed away. Glad you’re back.
GREGORY: Thanks. Hillary had Huma. Have you chosen Muslims for State, sir?
KERRY: Yes: muslin ruffles for my office windows and muslin backdrops for videographic contrast in the studios.
GREGORY: You support evenhandednes in the Mideast?
KERRY: Yes. Hamas gets self-propelled howitzers and Israel gets Northrop’s Skyguard Defender™ to fry the shells in mid-flight. No harm, no foul.
GREGORY: Any message for Abbas and Netanyahu?
KERRY: Palestinians must acknowledge Israel’s determination to avoid another holocaust; Israelis must realize our support is unconditional unless they refuse to recognize a Palestinian state bent on their destruction.
GREGORY: What’s happening in Gaza?
KERRY: Where the pyramids are?
GREGORY: That’s Giza. The West Bank?
KERRY: Um, the savings and loan in Houston?
GREGORY: Word’s out of a plan to resettle Israel’s population in a semi-autonomous enclave in Utah.
KERRY: The president’s idea. Thinks it’ll drive the Mormons crazy. That’s off the record.
GREGORY: We’re live, sir. Morale’s okay at State?
KERRY: Hillary posted Morales to Honduras last week.
GREGORY: Has the CIA captured Mullah Omar?
KERRY: Yes. They’re waterballooning him; he hasn’t broken yet.
GREGORY: What about the Taliban?
KERRY: I’m transferring our Jamaican ambassador to Kabul. His message: ´´Come, Mr. Tali Ban. Dally, you’re bananas. Play this right, mon, we gonna go home.´´
GREGORY: That spy swap with Russia. We gave ten back, we got four. Bad deal?
KERRY: No. We get three more agents to be named later and a first round pick.
GREGORY: Who’s really running China?
KERRY: It’s Wen, not Hu. I’ve met both. Hu knows where, or Wen.
GREGORY: Thanks for your time, sir.

The reading on my contempt meter edged up to 7.8 after the confirmation vote.

I´m sure it would have gone higher if it were not for the large numbers of treasonous subversives who are on constant surveillance above him.

Unchanged are Obama and Jarrett whose readings peg the meter at 10.0

Ted Cruz is not up for re-election for another 6 years.
John Cornyn´s vote would have no effect on his re-election attempt. We plan on primary´ing him next year. He has been hanging around the senate for too long.

Seems to me that 97 U.S. Senators need to read up on a little U.S. history - and fairly recent history at that. To now allow this traitor, who ought to have been permanently incarcerated at Leavenworth, to now represent this country he maligned (and maligns still) to the world as a diplomat is absolutely unbelievable and unforgiveable.

What I would like to know is who wrote the law that says that a President should always get the cabinet he nominates, even when the nominee has flaws the size of the Grand Canyon. This "collegial" attitude by the McCaine´s of this world is what allows people like Kerry, and I greatly fear Hagel, to be installed---and meanwhile the Democrats fight tooth and nail and Bork any candidate they don´t look upon as a go along to get along by a Republican President. The McCaine´s of this world!!!!!!! What a Party! And they wonder why they are losing us.

Senate “collegiality” isn´t the reason Kerry got a 97/3 vote. Where was senate collegiality in the Bork and Thomas hearings? Senate collegiality is what the Democrats demand for their own and what the feckless Republicans dutifully give them. Dirty politics is what them Democrats give in return.

Kind of surprised to see that Sen Paul voted yes. hmmm

This whole Kerry Debacle make me wonder if those strokes to the head and the pains from his broken bones have wiped McCain´s memories of those days spent at The Hanoi Hilton from his mind? After all he was awarded his Medals and Rank on the basis of what he physically endured...While Jon Effin´ Kerry created his own bravery; by carrying his own Camera,Typewriter to self Document his "War Record" to advance his political career. He is such a model for America. Particularly when he threw all other American Service Personnel ´under the bus´ by giving false testimony before Congress and then publicly trashing his "Service in the Navy´ by throwing a fist full of"medals(?)" over the WH Fence ( creating his OWN Photo-Op. Kerry is a despicable human who deserves to be in the a prison in the dust-bin of History.

Hopefully, the Senate Republicans who voted to confirm Kerry just wanted to get him out of the Senate.

We shouldn´t be too surprised that McCain voted to confirm him despite McCain´s prisoner of war status in 1971. IIRC McCain was being considered for Kerry´s running mate in 2004 - McCain certainly didn´t try hard to squelch the rumor.

All I can say is shame on 97 Senators for elevating a traitor to SOS. I hope everyone realizes he now becomes the fourth in the line to the presidency.

This is almost more sickening than I can endure. Pray hard, folks. I have faith that God is in charge; the frustrating part is I don´t know what God is doing.

I completely understand your point, #35.

When Obama won, I was so depressed I posted the following: ´´I am laying down my satirist´s pen. Humor involving this man, his administration, and his Party is now, in my view, misplaced. There is nothing to laugh at any more.´´

It took me a while to remember my primary purpose in writing the satires: to ridicule phonies like Obama and Kerry and Hillary and Biden. Humor was just a byproduct.

I started posting stuff again when somebody reminded me that criticism rolls off their backs, but they hate being mocked. These days, it´s one of the few ways we can get under their skins.

An aside: obviously, I can´t acknowledge every instance of positive feedback, but I do appreciate it, more than you know.

McCain and Graham were able to prevent Obama from nominating Susan Rice for this position.
Which was an amazing feat considering
that Republicans only have 45 members
compared
to the 55 the Democrats have.
Every Republican can vote against Hagel and he will be confirmed with 51 Democrat votes.
Instead of threatening the present Republican Senators , the energy would be better spent trying to defeat
Democrats next election.
But, that unfortunately doesn´t seem to be the priority of the Tea Party.
They would rather defeat electable Republicans.

Particularly the imperious, thin-skinned one.

Keep calm and carry on!

#54 – The Susan Rice nomination was a decoy that gave McPain and Ms. Graham “fighting” creds at no real political cost to them, even as John Kerry was being publicly recognized as the real nominee. This is an amazing feat? I hardly think so.

You argue that because there are only 45 Republicans (even if they all vote against a nominee) they cannot stop a nomination, its OK for them to give any dim nominee a pass no matter how unqualified or how traitorous. Where were the tough questions? Where was the evidence of the Swiftboat Vets? 3 noes out of 45 and we’re not supposed to notice? When the dims are in the minority they seem to be able to make a lot of noise and hobble appointments. Some of us would just like to see half of that type of “energy” spent by Republican electeds when openly radical dims are nominated.

Instead we’re accused of “threatening” the current crop of cowards and scolded to use our “energy” to defeat the dims in the next election with “electable Republicans”. What evidence is there that a “republican” majority senate would act any differently? The excuse then would be that their majority isn’t big enough, or that it’s the majority’s responsibility to make sure that the minority point of view prevails - out of fairness, you know. Yes, you are correct when you say the Tea Party wants to defeat these kinds of “representatives”. Progressives run “both” political parties, and patriots will fight both. Waiting until the next election is not an option.

Who is John Galt? What difference, at this point, does it make?

Oh, ouch, #64. Yes, let´s use Hillary´s line, but against her and her friends. That one hurt. I understand how you feel, though.

Thanks, #5, for using your wit to give us smiles. We need all we can get.

Senator Toomey, what´s the matter with you that you voted for Kerry? Arrrgh.

john kerry is a social climber, lazy,a coward and a manipulator. he has does absolutely zero in the senate for 25 years either for his state or anything else.
he married into big big money twice which financed his political ambitions. howie carr ridicules him mercilessly on his radio program and coined the term, "live shot kerry" because he is always in a photo op - no matter how insignificant but might make him look good.
i believe that his entire life has been spent looking for fame and validation of something other that what he really is (see above). since he can´t be president, being sec´y of state will please "luvey" and give him some additional status (in his head).
can he make a decent sos? almost certainly not, but he may be ever so slightly better than hilary because he is a male and the only sex worth talking to or negotiating with by the misogynistic "folks" in the middle east.
i predict, however, that the tensions and scariness in n. and s. korea will get far worse during his tenure as sos and the middle east will burn and they will try to take america with it. john kerry will most likely do as hilary, watch, complain and look tired and serious, accomplishing nothing.
the next few months are the most frightening to me because i fear that al quaeda and other militant groups/terrorists will use this time to do something dastardly to our country with little fear of reprisal.
god bless america.

West pushes Iran Nuclear Deal
that Israel “utterly rejects”
Canada Free Press, by David C. Jennings    Original Article
Posted By: sagman- 11/9/2013 6:50:12 AM     Post Reply
As nuclear talks between Iran and major world players enters its third day what has emerged is that Iran will get major relief from sanctions in exchange for the dubiously enforceable promise of restricting its uranium enrichment to levels for peaceful energy use only. And as US Secretary of State John Kerry jets around Europe posing as the deal maker, we find out that the Obama Administration had already taken it upon themselves in June to stop imposing sanctions on new entities created to do business in place of a sanctioned one.

‘Ayes’ Wired Shut: GOP Must

On Saturday morning, Fox News interviewed Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan about an apparent overture by President Barack Obama intended to bring about an end to the horrible, awful, end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it 17 percent government shutdown. The idea, in essence: pass a bill to fund the entire government, and then we can talk about making needed changes to Obamacare. Pretty funny. For practical purposes — at least in terms of having a functioning exchange, the hyped linchpin of the entire enterprise — there is no Obamacare right now. Sure, there’s a website, but only a tiny percentage of those wishing to use it have

Here Comes the Sun: Global Warming
and the Perversion of Science
American Thinker, by Jim Heilman    Original Article

As the hypothesis of man-caused global warming is trundled off to the Morgue for Scientific Hoaxes, let´s anticipate the autopsy´s preliminary findings: the subject expired after choking on its own premises. In denial, warmists continue to hawk recently discredited tenets: mankind´s (read: America´s) profligate use of fossil fuels pumps enormous quantities of CO2 into the atmosphere; naturally, Earth´s temperature rises, exacerbating the so-called "greenhouse effect"; in time, our planet becomes a most inhospitable place. "Settled science." Until it wasn´t. These postulates were meant to frighten the naive and misinformed into supporting a radical correction that would (surprise!) hit the U.S. hardest.

Biden to use Obama’s postelection
‘flexibility’ on weapons with Russia
Washington Times, by Dave Boyer    Original Article
Posted By: sagman- 2/1/2013 5:52:05 AM     Post Reply
Vice President Joseph R. Biden will discuss arms control Saturday with Russia’s top envoy, a meeting that could shed light on President Obama’s unguarded comment last year that he would have more “flexibility” to negotiate with the Russians after his re-election. Mr. Biden will hold a one-on-one session with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in Munich during a four-day European trip with his wife, Jill, that begins Friday. Administration officials confirmed Thursday that the vice president’s agenda with Mr. Lavrov includes an exploration of ways to reduce both nations’ nuclear weapons stockpiles.

Kerry gets overwhelming Senate
backing to lead State Department
Washington Post, by Anne Gearan    Original Article

The Senate overwhelmingly approved Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) as the next secretary of state Tuesday afternoon, with three Republican “no” votes. The vote was 94 to 3, clearing the way for Kerry to formally take over from Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Friday. He assumes the post amid a civil war in Syria that has killed an estimated 60,000 people, stalled nuclear negotiations with Iran and the spread of militancy across North Africa.

Debacle in Benghazi
Weekly Standard, by Stephen F. Hayes and Thomas Joscelyn    Original Article

On September 21, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke to reporters before a meeting with the Pakistani foreign minister. She addressed the September 11 assault on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya. “What happened was a terrorist attack, and we will not rest until we have tracked down and brought to justice the terrorists who murdered four Americans.” Clinton’s statement was notable. It was the strongest and most direct assessment of the attacks from any Obama administration official in the first 10 days after the deaths.

Gun Control by Executive Order?
National Review, by Scott Coffina    Original Article

The horrific recent mass murder of 26 children and adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School predictably has reignited the gun-control debate in this country. (snip) The task force led by Vice President Joe Biden has met mostly with groups either in favor of or opposed to greater restrictions on guns and ammunition. Facing strong political opposition in Congress from both parties, Vice President Biden and President Barack Obama each have suggested publicly that the president will act by executive order to restrict guns.

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

About six in ten American voters think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters some or most of the time, according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday. 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.
