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.

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.

Why are the US authorities trying to extradite and imprison arguably the one man in the world with the skills and influence to bring peace, stability, and prosperity to fractured Ukraine? This week I flew to Vienna, Austria, to find out in a world exclusive interview with Ukraine´s Dmitry Firtash, the billionaire industrialist, philanthropist, and political fixer who is striving desperately to help his country forge an independent future free from the bullying of Russia and the meddling of the West in next month´s scheduled elections. 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

Russia Spent More of Its Wealth

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. Russia´s military spending relative to GDP is now

Up to 11 people are believed dead after airborne Ukrainian troops seized an airport in the country´s rebellious east today in the first sign that a promised ´anti-terror operation´ had begun against pro-Russian separatists. Heavy gunfire was heard at Kramatorsk airport as Ukraine´s interim president announced that his forces had retaken the site from militants who been seizing control of cities since last week. Local media reported between four to 11 deaths in the attack, but there was no immediate confirmation of any casualties. Russia said it was ´deeply concerned´ over reports of casualties in the region today. It comes

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." So the report was duly amended to suggest that the benefits of wind turbines, solar panels,

Her dark, macabre tales of Gothic romance and revenge have enthralled millions of readers and remain in print decades after her death. But for Daphne du Maurier, the wealth and worldwide fame she earned from novels such as Rebecca and Jamaica Inn were a poor substitute for the acclaim she craved from literary critics who dismissed her as a second-rank “romantic novelist”. Now her only son, Kits Browning, speaking for the first time ahead of the BBC’s three-part adaptation of Jamaica Inn, has criticised the “Hampstead literati” for overlooking one of the last century’s most original literary talents.

If there was a standard operating manual for the secret services of the world´s dodgier regimes, it would no doubt omit any mention of the term "agent provocateur". In Russia, Burma, Iran et al, state-backed agents never get involved in causing trouble. Instead, there are only "patriotic local citizens", who, unable to contain themselves, rise up in righteous indignation against those who might betray the nation. That, if Russia is to be believed, is exactly what it happening in eastern Ukraine right now. According to a statement this morning from the Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, there are "no Russian

The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

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

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
