Kerry breezes through
nomination hearing

Boston Herald, by Hillary Chabot

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/24/2013 4:24:33 PM

U.S. Sen. John Kerry breezed through a relatively easy hearing as senators quizzed him about the growing Iranian nuclear threat and President Obama’s actions following a terrorist attack in Benghazi before they vote on his confirmation as Secretary of State. “My sense is your confirmation will go through very, very quickly,” said U.S. Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn), the ranking Republican on the committee, later adding, “I know you’re going to be confirmed in the next very few days.” The most heated questions from members of the committee on foreign relations seemed to focus on other political players rather

Do the Vietcong get to vote on Kerry´s nomination?
Will considerations about Kerry´s judgment include John Edwards?
As Kerry is a member of the 1% of the 1%, will Occupy Wall Street protest Obama´s choice of America´s representative?

So many questions, so little interest by objective, investigative journalists.

Although Kerry is a flaming progressive, I doubt he is on board t promote The Muslim Brotherhood as leaders of the world. Obama may have a dissenting voice in the cabinet.

I will pray the Ketchup Prince wants to improve his place in history. As an anti war activist, I doubt he thinks it´s cool Oama drone bombs Muslim Brotherhood enemies from a secret list, hidden from congress.

The man received a less than honorable discharge. Protested a war with troops in harms way. Desecrated his medals (which he mostly didn´t earn). Negotiated on his own with our enemies. Falsely accused US troops of war crimes in the 1970´s and the 2000´s but that doesn´t matters because he is our "good friend across the aisle".

Man am I sick of the Republican cowardliness.

SAN FRANCISCO — For more than two decades, Leland Yee climbed the political ladder in San Francisco. A child psychologist turned politician, Yee straddled opposing camps in the city´s bare-knuckled political fights, appealing to both right and left and catering to constituents with a strong, attentive staff. Elegant in appearance and charming in manner, he courted financial contributors and built a reputation as a canny pol with an enviable knack of identifying the high-profile issue of the day and then weighing in before a thicket of cameras.

Conservative Leaders Predict Tea

The increasingly open “civil war” now raging between a Republican establishment that favors big government and members of the Tea Party is a necessary evil that will eventually force the GOP back to its limited government principles, conservative leaders say. “This is part of a literally 102-year-old civil war that’s been going on in the Republican Party since 1912, when Teddy Roosevelt leaves the Republican Party, splits the party, starts the Bull Moose Party, which leads directly to Woodrow Wilson’s election with less than 42 percent of the vote,” Conservative HQ chairman Richard Viguerie told CNSNews.com.

NEW YORK- The U.S. economy has regained all the private-sector jobs it lost in the Great Recession; it took six years. The Labor Department said Friday that America added 192,000 jobs in March. The unemployment rate remained 6.7 percent. After five years of being in and out of work, Tara Dublin found a job a few weeks ago as a hostess at a restaurant in Portland, Ore..

The discovery led to the arrest of a 73-year-old woman accused of running one of the warehouses connected to a drug smuggling operation, according to a joint news release by four federal agencies. The tunnels were discovered as part of a five-month investigation by the so-called San Diego Tunnel Task Force.

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”
