John Kerry: Obama’s “Perfect
Choice” For Secretary of State

Front Page, by John Perazzo

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 12/22/2012 7:21:37 AM

When Barack Obama nominated John Kerry to be America’s next Secretary of State Friday afternoon, he called Kerry the “perfect choice” to replace Hillary Clinton. Stating that “few individuals … grasp our foreign policies as firmly as John Kerry,” Obama said the Senator will not “need a lot of on-the-job training.” He then praised Mr. Kerry’s combat service in the Vietnam War and his subsequent tenure of service in the Senate, where Kerry has been intimately involved in “every major foreign policy debate for the past 30 years.” Notably, President Obama made no mention of what occurred after Kerry’s

He chose someone who hates America as much as he himself does.

He found someone with the same level of disdain for our military as well.

Obama, Kerry, Hillary, Bill Clinton and their ilk are simply sincere and reasonable sounding versions of Al Shapton and the Jackson´s, the Revered and his former Congressman son. Like Sharpton and the Jacksons, they are always depicted as caring, committed individuals who sacrifice their own careers to help the less fortunate. But as their policies create ever more less fortunate people, they grow wealthier beyond their wildest dreams. And like the Reverends and the son, they are held in the highest esteem by our news & information media. Obama, Kerry and the Clintons are all full of manure, but we are constantly assured that it has the sweetest smell.

FTA:"He then praised Mr. Kerry’s combat service in the Vietnam War and his subsequent tenure of service in the Senate, where Kerry has been intimately involved in “every major foreign policy debate for the past 30 years.”
To radicals such as Obama, ´intimately involved´ means working diligently to weaken our security. In the past, we´ve been able to reverse the damage by rejecting these menacing jerks every few years at the ballot box. The potential damage we face from our current enemies is on a faster track and we are left hoping that we still have the luxury of time to repair the mess Hillary and her pet boy Barry have made.

Obama sure can pick communist-friendly people, can´t he?

Forty-thousand dead bodies later, one tries vainly to reconcile John Kerry’s track record with President Obama’s glowing description of him as the “perfect choice” for Secretary of State.

Kerry IS the "perfect choice", if one´s aim is to further pepper this Administration with Communists in the pursuit of destroying America as founded.

John Effin Kerry, aka Horse Face: Obama’s “Perfect Choice” For Suckretary of Hate.

Well that depends on what 0bama´s objective is. If 0bama wants to further deflate America´s power and international standing, then Horse Face is the right choice.

John Bolton would be the real perfect choice.

Words that truly express my contempt would get me barred from ever posting on Lucianne.com again.

My school-teacher father, used to say that "Swearing is a sign of a weak mind trying to forcefully express itself." I used to laugh when I heard him swear, but I had too much respect for him to throw the quote back at him. I understood where he was coming from.

Sometimes swear words really do convey, in no uncertain terms, how one feels. Right now I feel that Kerry is a $*@&!#& Traitor, and should be behind bars - not a U.S. Senator or SOS.

Thanks Massachusetts, you have lost your moral compass - John Hancock, John Adams, and Samuel Adams are probably turning over in their graves.

"Adroit" in this sense means clever, the ability to use words to obfuscate, to circumvent the truth.

As for Kerry, Perazzo is the perfect one to write a complete rundown on him for those who missed it in real life. It was Perazzo who wrote the excellent piece on where Obama and the Democrats intended to take us in 2008, a piece posted here that got little notice although it described Obama´s following Alinsky´s methodology to a T.

Here is how Perazzo starts on Kerry:

The historical record informs us that not only has John Kerry been on the wrong side of every major foreign policy issue for most of his adult life, including Iraq, Nicaragua and most recently in Syria, but he has routinely engaged in deception to conceal his folly. What’s worse, Kerry has a clear record of giving aid and comfort to America’s enemies, all the while never missing an opportunity to viciously trash our brave forces fighting against them.

With Obama’s nomination of Kerry to head the State Department, therefore, a look back at Kerry’s “service” to this country becomes more pertinent than ever:


Read on. Perazzo is always worth a read.

We continually pat ourselves on the back for being "a nation of laws". Clearly, we are not. If we were, we would be punishing Lurch for his many breaches. He is extremely lucky to be from that liberal cesspit, Massachusetts. He would not have been so well treated in most other states. In Texas, I believed we would have hung him.

A new study by the Non-Governmental International Panel on Climate Changeshows that the benefits of a warming earth will outweigh any costs incurred. (Snip) The authors find higher levels of carbon dioxide and warmer temperatures benefit nearly all plants, leading to more leaves, more fruit, more vigorous growth, and greater resistance to pests, drought, and other forms of “stress.” Wildlife benefits as their habitats grow and expand. Even polar bears, the poster child of anti-global warming activist groups such as the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), are benefiting from warmer temperatures.

The Holy Father visited an Italian steelworks last week and declared that human dignity requires a job. In the current mess the unemployed risk being marginalized, “victims of social exclusion,” he said. What does “the very serious problem of unemployment” tell us, he asked? It is the consequence of an economic system that is no longer able to create work, because it has placed at its centre the idol of money. Therefore, the various political, social and economic actors are called upon to promote a different approach, based on justice and solidarity, to ensure the possibility of dignified work for all.

Big Words Are Fading, But

I love big words. It started when I was a kid and first heard "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious." ("Something to say when you don´t know what to say," according to the movie "Mary Poppins.") I quickly moved on to real words: "Ebullient," "innocuous" and "malodorous" were some of my favorites. If I came across a word I didn´t know in a book, I looked it up. I made flashcards to help myself remember the ones I particularly liked. Now I´m worried that big words—the challenging, expressive and interesting ones—might start going away.

The FCC was moving quickly with the study. The agency had spent $500,000 planning a study that would have involved grilling editors in 280 newsrooms over how they decide which stories to run. Increasingly alarmed, Pai decided his best option

Legislation that would end an unusual loophole in Pennsylvania´s anti-stalking laws that exempts union-related activity is slowing making its way through the Republican-led statehouse. It has a good chance of getting enacted, aides say. The Keystone State defines stalking as "following the person without proper authority, under circumstances which demonstrate either an intent to place such other person in reasonable fear of bodily injury or to cause substantial emotional distress to such other person." Repeated, unwanted communications count as stalking, too. But the law also states: "This section shall not apply to conduct by a party to a labor dispute." State Rep. Ron

Nobody works harder or spends more money to elect liberals than teachers and their labor unions. But these same elected officials are now asking the one question that teachers never thought they would hear: “Why are you so racist?” The question was posed last week following a Department of Education study about the educational and disciplinary differences between white and black students. “This critical report shows that racial disparities in school discipline policies are not only well-documented among older students, but actually begin during preschool,” said Attorney General Eric Holder. “This Administration is moving aggressively to disrupt the school-to-prison pipeline

Today at the Supreme Court, some courageous Americans are standing up to Obamacare’s trampling of religious freedom. But outside the Court, the debate rages over the place of this valuable freedom in our lives. Planned Parenthood put together a graphic to express one argument—that Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood want to “deny their employees access to birth control.” As Heritage expert Sarah Torre explained in our video, nothing could be further from the truth. The companies actually pay to cover 16 different types of contraceptive drugs. Check out our version of the infographic, which explains what’s really at stake today.

Hard as it is to believe, there is yet another price spike coming courtesy of ObamaCare. Avalere Health, a market and healthcare research firm, estimates that some consumers will pay as much as half the cost of so-called “specialty drugs” under health overhaul-related plans. By comparison, consumers in private plans typically pay no more than a third of those costs. ”There’s a significant percentage of plans who are using coinsurance of 50 percent or higher,” said Caroline Pearson, who tracks the health care overhaul for Avalere Health. “It is generally a lot higher than what we see in private insurance.”

Like the rest of us, airport security screeners like to think they can read body language. The Transportation Security Administration has spent some $1 billion training thousands of “behavior detection officers” to look for facial expressions and other nonverbal clues that would identify terrorists. But critics say there’s no evidence that these efforts have stopped a single terrorist or accomplished much beyond inconveniencing tens of thousands of passengers a year. The T.S.A. seems to have fallen for a classic form of self-deception: the belief that you can read liars’ minds by watching their bodies. Most people think liars give themselves away by

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last.

WASHINGTON — Spring break was never this dull. First Lady Michelle Obama’s kids finally hit the wall on their whirlwind visit to China, showing signs they’ve nearly reached their limit tagging along with mom as she visits site after site on what’s billed as a “person-to-person” tour.

Most Supreme Court watchers are fixated these days on Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby—the important challenge to the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate scheduled for argument Tuesday. And why wouldn’t they be? With its potent mix of religion, sex, Obamacare, and prayerful corporations, it’s the blockbuster case of the term.

It’s not an early April Fool’s joke -- Business Insider has hired disgraced former NYC Congressman and mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner to write a weekly political column, starting Friday. Hunter Walker, Business Insider’s politics editor, published the announcement on Monday, after teasing the news on Twitter by announcing that “something wonderful is about to happen.” The folks at Business Insider are clearly aware of the built-in entertainment value of hiring the scandalized politician, who is best known for sending an explicit photo of himself to an online mistress on Twitter -- and initially denying the photo was his.

During oral arguments in the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday which focused on whether the contraceptive mandate in the Affordable Care Act violates the free exercise of religion, Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan suggested employers who have moral objections to birth control should not provide health care coverage for their employees. “But isn´t there another choice nobody talks about, which is paying the tax, which is a lot less than a penalty and a lot less than -- than the cost of health insurance at all?” Sotomayor said during the presentation by attorney Paul Clement, who represents Hobby Lobby Stores
