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?!

Why should he be in DC, no metals to be had there. He does have his priorities and his job isn´t one of them.

It´s not his fault...Morsi never got back to him. Secretary Kerry just figured the "coast was clear" for some holiday wave-crashing

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.

The top aide to a congresswoman in her California district sits in jail awaiting sentencing for the drunk-driving hit-and-run death of a 27-year-old woman whose parents are now suing the lawmaker, blaming her for failing to vet the staffer--who had two DUIs in 2006 and 2007, and a 2010 grand theft conviction--before she hired him. Their daughter´s killer, they say, was officially on the job the night of December 6, gladhanding in Rep. Lois Capps´ stead at a private holiday party thrown by a local newspaper.

While America’s wealthiest citizens continue to outpace their global peers, the country’s middle class has lost its long held distinction of being the most affluent in the world according to new research. Although economic growth in the United States continues to be as strong as in many other countries--or stronger--only a small percentage of American households are fully benefiting from it, according to the LIS analysis. Based on surveys conducted over the past 35 years, income across the lower--and middle-income tiers of American society has plateaued over that time, while citizens in other advanced countries have received considerably larger rises.

Some will seize on this as proof that Americans are credulous and anti-scientific, but I´d draw the opposite conclusion.

At least 1,000 hospital patients are dying needlessly each month from dehydration and poor care by doctors and nurses, according to an NHS study. The deaths from acute kidney injury could be prevented by simple steps such as nurses ensuring patients have enough to drink and doctors reviewing their medication, the researchers say. Between 15,000 and 40,000 patients die annually because hospital staff fail to diagnose the treatable kidney problem, a figure that dwarfs the death toll from superbugs like MRSA. The report comes less than a year after the NHS watchdog NICE was forced to issue guidelines on giving patients water

The term "Dark Net" is shorthand to describe the hidden and encrypted part of the internet beyond the reach of normal browsers, accessible only using the anonymous browser Tor. It´s protected by a clever traffic encryption system which makes it very difficult to locate the servers which host sites--called Tor Hidden Services--and the IP addresses of the people the visit them. Tor used to stand for The Onion Router, and so some call this world "Onionland". Anonymity and freedom rule Onionland, not censorship.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

A pregnant journalist is recovering in hospital today after a pro-Kremlin political leader in Russia told two male aides to ´violently rape´ her at a press conference. Nationalist Vladimir Zhironovsky launched his extraordinary tirade after reporter Stella Dubovitskaya asked him an innocuous question about sanctions against Ukraine. The founder of the far right Liberal Democratic Party began shouting wildly, before suddenly manhandling two young male aides towards the pregnant mother-of-one. He then shouted to them: ´When I say, you run to her and violently rape her.´ The parliamentary reporter, who is six months pregnant, is now being treated in hospital

Residences near the blaze were evactuated following the fire, which broke out at around 1pm local time. The explosion occurred at Gibraltar´s main power station and the fire shut down much of the area´s electricity. Thousands of residents and tourists were left without power while firefighters battled the blaze. The fire was eventually brought under control at around 4.30pm local time.

Former Sen.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100.
