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!

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.

SANTA FE, N.M. —A national political magazine has released secret audio recordings of Gov. Susana Martinez, and it’s causing quite a reaction both here in New Mexico as well as across the country.Mother Jones penned an article recently that asked if Martinez was the next Sarah Palin. The article featured several recordings of the governor. Some believe what Martinez is heard saying could jeopardize her political aspirations. The recordings were published by Mother Jones, who said they’re from four years ago. The reporter said his article sheds light on a side of Martinez the public has never seen before, a

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

Book: White House scrambled
after Joe Biden´s gay marriage comments

Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

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

President Obama said Wednesday that Russia realizes the U.S. military is “significantly superior” to its own and does not want war with the United States. Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over. Ukraine’s government has launched an operation against the separatists

AUSTIN, Tex. — The last nine months of Rick Perry’s tenure as the longest-serving governor of Texas were supposed to be a political victory lap. Greg Abbott, the Republican state attorney general, and Wendy Davis, the Democratic state senator, both of whom are vying to replace Mr. Perry, have been sparring across Texas. Meanwhile Mr. Perry has been traveling the country and the world promoting the robust Texas economy and bolstering his national profile as he considers another run for president in 2016.

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE—Victims of the 9/11 terror attacks expressed shock that the FBI may be meddling in the hearings here, and some speculated that it is part of an effort by the Obama administration to completely derail the hearings and force them into federal court stateside. Families of those killed in the 9/11 terror attacks traveled here with the intent of watching their family members’ accused killers face justice. However, many say they were horrified earlier this week when pre-trial hearings came to a halt over revelations that the FBI had launched an investigation into the accused terrorist’s defense

Earlier today, Judicial Watch made public a batch of documents that it received from the IRS in response to a Freedom of Information Act request. The documents consists of a series of emails relating to the IRS’s treatment of applications for 501(c)(4) status from “Tea Party” or otherwise conservative organizations. I am still working my way through the emails, but have a few preliminary observations. First, the most significant ones I have seen so far have already been widely discussed. The email below documents a call from the Department of Justice about whether non-profits that “lied” about doing political activity

On the Wednesday, April 16, PoliticsNation on MSNBC, far left host Al Sharpton berated what he viewed as "extreme" and "intolerant radical views" of Republican candidates for U.S. Senate in Mississippi and North Carolina as he highlighted comments that he considered "offensive." Guest Jonathan Capehart of the Washington Post went so far as to hyperbolically suggest that the GOP is "going to cease to exist" unless Republican Party leaders who are "aghast at the far-right extremists" do not react against these candidates. Below is a transcript of the relevant portion of the Wednesday, April 16, PoliticsNation on MSNBC: AL SHARPTON:

Sarah Palin to Headline SHE-PAC

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will headline a SHE-PAC rally in Des Moines, Iowa, on April 27th for conservative Iowa Senate candidate Joni Ernst, who has taken a two-point lead over a liberal Republican businessman who had been leading before Palin endorsed Ernst. The rally at the Hy-Vee Conference Center will feature Nebraska Sen. Deb Fischer, Iowa´s Lieutenant Gov. Kim Reynolds, and Kay Orr, the former Nebraska governor who was the country´s first Republican female governor. It will likely also make it difficult for Democrats to use the "war on women" card in Iowa. State Senator Ernst gained national recognition for

WASHINGTON—First lady Michelle Obama plans to meet Chicago high school students in the nation´s capital Thursday when they visit Howard University to gain exposure to college life, White House aides said. Bow Wow, a rapper, actor and co-host of BET´s "106 & Park," will join a campus tour with the first lady and the Chicago Public Schools students and moderate her round-table discussion with them, her aides said.

FORT WORTH — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis will undergo neck surgery today, her campaign said Tuesday. “After experiencing shoulder and right arm pain in recent weeks, Sen. Davis will have a routine surgical procedure to remove bone spurs and degenerative discs that are creating compression on the nerves in her neck,” campaign spokesman Zac Petkanas said in a statement Tuesday. “This is a common issue experienced by runners and endurance athletes,” he said. Davis, of Fort Worth, will undergo the outpatient surgery at the Fort Worth Brain and Spine Institute. Dr. Thomas Ellis will perform the

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

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

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

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million
