Kerry comes out swinging
on climate change

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Ben Geman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/20/2013 2:23:47 PM

John Kerry used his first major speech as secretary of State to make that case that failing to confront climate change means missing big economic opportunities — and worse. “If we waste this opportunity, it may be the only thing our generation — generations — are remembered for. We need to find the courage to leave a far different legacy,” Kerry said in a wide-ranging address at the University of Virginia. Kerry again signaled that he hopes to use his role as top diplomat to promote green energy technologies, arguing they can

Comments:
We need to find the courage to leave a far different legacy?? He and his comrades sure are, one of despair and destruction. I must have missed the part of the article that says these are all blatant lies and climate change is based on fraudulent "science." s/o

So typical ... big egos like Kerry and Gore think they can control the climate. How many private planes, homes, boats and vehicles do they own?

There is one thing they can do though ... stop with all the hot air.

Only a Democrat would want the people of the US and the world to be worse off than this and earlier generations. Kerry, Obama, Lisa Jackson are excellent examples of why normal people distrust elites.

Let me guess how this ´economic opportunity´ works. We loan money to foreign governments, who then buy bad technology from American companies who use foreign parts and labor to create their products. The heads of those companies who have bought access and influence in DC make out well while other Americans see zero benefit.

Typical of the stupid party. People may not care about climate change - but they do care about clean air and water - the do care about being good stewards of the earth we inhabit. Why doesn´t the GOP take the lead on that and leave climate change and that whole argumnet to the dems?

No doubt there remain some Americans who take John Kerry seriously - but I suspect their number is not very great. There is something grotesque about his pretensions to wisdom. Looking at the rogue´s gallery of celebrity Democratic politicians, including Barack Obama, the common denominator is narcissism. Few if any of these people have ever actually achieved anything, supported themselves, or done anything except talk and make speeches. Yet they hold themselves in the highest possible regard as they prance and parade around lecturing the rest of us on how to think and behave. A citizenry capable of elevating such mediocrities to positions of authority and high estate has nothing to brag about.

What a dismal thought, that we are now going to have to hear, if not exactly listen to someone of the caliber of John Kerry presuming to instruct us about every pet personal idea he has that he thinks important. Where these people got the idea they are so special is a mystery.

Good grief! This is supposed to be a Sec. of State?

The Norks, Chicoms, Al-Qaeda, Russkies, Taliban, Hamas, Hezbollah, Mullahs - - and various others miscreants - - are running wild and posing an existential threat to our beloved country - - and this doofus talks about the hoax known as "climate change"?

There´s no hope, my friends - - there really isn´t. We are DOOMED.

So the pouffe has come out swinging with a baret on top of his transplant dome and a slice of brie cheese in one hand to smear on his bagguette, while shaking his hopelessly out of date fist into the air to so chant from a late 60´s slogan. He tried to be cool by offering the hand dap to his russian federation counterpart. But to his consternation found that russians do not dap. Still dillusional and determined to be both hopelessly out of touch and cool, he will continue to push the now known to be defunct climate change pseudo religion while admiring all things french.

Look on the bright side, we might almost be finally popular with the french. Almost that is.

Oh. OK. So who handles foreign relations? USDA? CDC? Who? Maybe the Constitution is less-clear than it seems?

And who convinced Kerry on AGW? Al Gore ["interested party" in prospective "carbon markets" and failed "divinity student"]? NASA´s 1986 "report" saying the human race would be extinct from AGW "in a few decades"? The IPCC reports where the "conclusions" were written before the reports were finished? East Anglia´s demonstratedly-falsified "data"? Ground-based temp readings from "heat islands," extrapolated "readings," and far-too-few locations? That you yourself are a far better scientist than Richard Feynman? What?

Of course he does, he´s a fellow traveler. The goal is to bring about a revolution by collapsing the economy. There are 3 primary elements:
1) abject weakness against all foes, particularly communist backed foes
2) keep all resources in the ground
3) collapse our businesses and economy with out of control spending, taxes and regulatory burdens

While Russia, China, Iran and Venezuela exploit their oil and gas, Kerry and Obama are pushing to alternative energy. This accomplishes all 3 of the goals.

I think it makes sense for SOS to be involved with "climate change" when you consider that NASA´s role is to improve Muslim self-esteem. Besides, Kerry told the senate conformation hearings he would faithfully carry out Obama´s vision, whatever that may be.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day."

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
