John Kerry under fire as Secretary
of State takes Nantucket vacation
amid Egypt military coup

Daily Mail [UK], by Jessica Jerreat

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/5/2013 5:02:58 PM

As Egypt plunges into crisis John Kerry has been allegedly spotted relaxing at his holiday home in Nantucket for Independence Day. The Secretary of State, who has just returned from a 12-day tour to the Middle East, was spotted near the July 4 festivities in the center of town, and on his yacht. With the Egyptian military ousting President Morsi amid violent protests, many in Nantucket were surprised to see Mr Kerry at his holiday home rather than in Washington. He is staying at the popular Massachusetts island near Cape Cod with his daughters and their husbands, according to the

Comments:
He´s been "in constant touch" with those who are tracking the crisis? Don´t see a phone in his ear--is he receiving messages through his fillings?

But this happened so long ago, what difference does it make. The King of Ketchup can care less about anything except his own greedy entitled arrogant pursuit of happiness. Let Egypt burn, feed them cake, go away don´t bother me, I have a very expensive yacht to sail and a dinner reservation for filet mignon and lobster tonight. The nerve of you peons. Go away you bother me. Besides don´t you know I an a Viet Nam veteran, and the Secretary of State?!

John is right where he belongs, doing what he does best. The last thing Americans should want is for him to be sticking his nose into and meddling with matters he does not understand. Let him be. The less time he and people like him spend on public business, the better off the rest of us are. The same applies to the vast majority of elected officials, who almost always wind up making matters worse when they roll up their sleeves in the determination to make them better. Farmers have been subsidized for not growing certain crops; politicians should be subsidized for not concocting and passing legislation. We have enough legislation now to last us for a long time. We do not need any more. How refreshing it would be to elect representatives who, instead of piling on still more legislation, would undertake the thankless process of repealing much that is already on the books, has not accomplished what was intended, and has created new problems and additional expenses that were not foreseen but which march on with lives of their own for lack of political will and courage to abolish them.

Kerry doesn´t have anything to offer at this point because Obama and his henchmen haven´t worked out a scheme to rescue the MB in Egypt.I don´t consider what the military did a coup,they gave power over to a judge,I think. They were simply restoring order.

Kerry´s already a laughing stock to most people so why would anybody be shocked he would take a holiday off.Most deals in congress are struck when they´re up against a holiday or vacation.

Now Kerry has the SOS job title and more photos for his wall and as long as he keeps the Heinz Ketchup queen happy she will keep him rolling in the money and he´s good to go. Can´t be bothered with actually doing a job for America. He´s got big rich guy stuff to attend to. By-the-way, did you know he "served" in Viet Nam and got himself some metals?

He´s kind of eye candy for the slot while Rice is in charge of taking orders from Obama.

I mean come on "folks" remember what the then Sec of State Hillary Clinton shouted "What Difference Does It Make"? That should be the theme chant for this administration.

#5, there was a clip of Will Rogers on television recently. He was making a joke about a president, I believe it was Coolidge: Rogers said something to the effect that the president didn´t do anything, but that was just what the American people wanted.

Rogers also said that we could avoid a lot of trouble if every nation tended to its own business.

Lots of wisdom there, and in your post as well.

One of Europe´s most powerful media tycoons has accused Google of seeking to create a digital ´superstate´ outside the control of national regulators and privacy laws. Mathias Döpfner, head of the giant German multi-media company Axel Springer, says Wir haben Angst vor Google: "We are afraid of Google." [Snip] Writing an open letter to Eric Schmidt, chairman of Google, in the German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Döpfner said: "Google not only knows where we are going in our cars, but also what we do while we’re driving.

One of US president Barack Obama´s leading campaign strategists has been recruited by Labour to play a key role in Ed Miliband´s bid for Downing Street in next year´s general election. David Axelrod, who is credited with masterminding Mr Obama´s presidential victories in 2008 and 2012, will join Labour´s general election campaign team as a senior strategic adviser, the party announced. His appointment was been hailed by Labour as a major coup, and ´´seriously bad news for the Conservatives´´, at a time when Mr Miliband has been under fire from sections of his own party for his campaign tactics.

I blogged yesterday about this "segregated" Muslim event organised by the Islamic Society of the University of East London, due to happen tonight at UEL´s main lecture theatre on its Docklands campus. Much to my surprise, UEL immediately banned it from their campus. [Snip] UEL should be congratulated over this. As I pointed out, it has an "equality and diversity" policy.

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

And his biggest obstacle? According to Firtash, it´s Barack Obama.

The Internal Revenue Service is considering a bold move to label perks like free lunch given to workers by companies as taxable. The agency wonders if freebies like haircuts and gym memberships are a way to compensate the highly skilled rather than just a way to jumpstart productivity. After all, argue proponents of such a tax, workers at Silicon Valley firms like Google and Facebook receive free meals from famously fancy in-house eateries every day. Some companies even go a step further by offering freebies like haircuts, car services, and child care. Typical workaday folks can expect to pay for all

According to figures compiled by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Moscow spent 4.1 percent of its GDP on defence in 2013, an increase of 0.6 percent over the past 10 years. By contrast, the United States spent 3.8 percent of GDP on defence and Britain spent just 2.3 percent. The only neighbouring country that spends more is Azerbaijan, with 4.7 percent. Defence spending in Ukraine has also rocketed by 16 percent in the space of a year following the crisis in Crimea and continued tensions with Russia over the eastern provinces of the country.

Even by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s own lamentable standards, its new report--by Working Group III of the Fifth Assessment Report--makes no sense whatsoever. [Snip] Before the report´s formal release, US officials--who had seen an earlier draft--wrote to the United Nations demanding it be amended. "The discussion of the economic costs of mitigation is too narrow and does not incorporate co-benefits of action." Loosely translated this means: "If we admit how much we´re spending to such little purpose, the taxpaying public is going to kill us."

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.

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 addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'
