Kerry´s Global Warning WMD
Comparison Merits Firing

Investors Business Daily, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:previouslyon24, 2/18/2014 10:46:01 PM

Foreign Policy: John Kerry calls global warming "the world´s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction." Has the secretary of state forgotten the world´s real WMDs? Or is he just off his medication? There´s a long list of Cabinet secretaries and senior aides to President Obama who have failed the nation so resoundingly they should be shown the door. But Secretary John Kerry, who dumped his military decorations in 1971 and was dumped by voters as a presidential candidate in 2004, should definitely be the first one out. In a pathetic attempt to distract from the Obama administration's foreign policy failures,

I heard someone ask this earlier today:

If there´s global warming, don´t you want the climate to change ... hence, climate change is a good thing.

Same with global cooling.

Same guy who ran for president in 2004 on a platform of surrendering Iraq to terrorists. 0bama accomplished that mission some ten years later, but I digress...

...yes, John F´n should be fired and yes, there are many other places he could be in the world to repair the damage, but lets remember...

...he works for a guy who would rather play golf and binge watch television programs and lie to the public, than deal with the problems of the country....

They weren´t his military medals he dumped over the fence; he reportedly displays his in his office.

So he probably dumped someone else´s decorations over the fence. Typical leftist.

I used to think that men like Kerry had their minds warped through the elite educational process they experienced. But as I get older I understand that, like water, they follow the path of least resistance. He presents himself as a leftist simply because he is a coward. His life is a study in facing those who mean him no harm with defiance but when faced with real horror and strife he folds. The only way to save face from his fecklessness is to wrap his cowardice in a political philosophy that presents itself as sophisticated, altruistic and benevolent. His fallback position when faced with his own spinelessness is that whoever is confronting him is too stupid to understand the nuances of the world like he does. In short, he is a gutless fool.

Yesterday, on Greta, there was a segment on a billionaire liberal who said he will contribute 100 million to politicians who want to do something about climate change. It didn´t take long for Kerry to answer...look at me, here I am.
My guess is John boy is planning to run in 2016.

I don´t think we can emphasize enough that today´s Democrat Party and the Communist Party USA share the same political platforms. They are nearly identical. Virtually everything on the administration´s agenda is on the Communist wish list. Why this isn´t pointed out more is surprising. Democrats should be forced to defend it.

This is all being whipped up by billionaire HEDGE FUND tycoon, Tom Steyer. So funny how Hedge Fund operators are evil if they´re Republicans, but when they are corrupt dems like Steyer and Soros, they´re angels.

The good news is that the rest of the world already know what the OP stated: John Kerry: stupid and dangerous

No one takes him seriously -- which actually may be good for the U.S.

Dana Perino said it best the other day - the further we get from September 11 the closer we get to September 10.

The fact that horse face is more worried about a summer dry spell than he is about a nuclear winter confirms that.

Nicely done #12. There are alpha dogs in the liberal totalitarian ranks but they are few and they are at the tip of he spear. They rely on manipulating large numbers who fear alpha dogs and flock to the security façade peddled to them. The conservative problem is that we have a higher concentration of alpha dogs and by nature don´t play as well as a pack. For the record I have no credentials in the field of psychology or sociology, just winging it.

It is one thing to have an opinion but to couch it as science, which is ever searching and investigating, then say that the discussion is over, it is settled, is absurd. To further say that the globe is warming, the ice is melting and the coast will be underwater, then see that it is not happening and change your predictions to include any change in climate, is junk science. If it is warm, it is warming, if it is cold it is still warming.

J. Fonda Kerry is one of the supposed elite who desire to rule the world. To date his biggest acomplishment has been to marry two very rich women. The one he is presently married to is so only because she married a very rich senator who was killed in a plane crash.
The goal of all these "elites" is to preserve their wealth and status, while keeping the rest of us low life down and out of their sight. The currentmethod of doing this is global warming,which keeps us down by denying the means of production necessary to improve the lot of the masses.
It isall planned at Davos in secret meetings of the beautiful peope.

If you thought that Kerry was an idiot before he was appointed SOS, then his appointment to the job by brain degenerate Obama confirmed the theory.

How did we get into this mess. Hillary Clinton, Kerry´s predecessor, has a trail of devastation and death that has followed her career, so was anybody surprised by Benghazi.

The same could be said of Kerry. Where he goes and applies his special talents, utterly stupid things are said and the IQ average drops when he enters a room.

With people like this leading, I ain´t following. I´m cringing.

You have a AGW case that has been so badly fudged that the originally collected data has been lost. If it somehow came true over the course of the next century that the temperature rises by 2 degrees F, we will need to ensure that fresh water is used as many times as possible on its way to the sea. To maintain water flow in some streams it may be necessary to use our rivers as energy storage devices, pumping water in non-peak hours from below the city to a tributary that flows into the river above the city. All becomes possible when power is cheap.

John Kerry has been a poseur and a striver his whole life. He is best known for never doing hard work, but for using guile and flattery (and blessed by being tall and kinda handsome) to move to the next rung of life´s ladder.

As an underpaid diplomat´s son (but nephew of a well off Forbes aunt) he got to prep school and Yale. He seems to have a higher IQ than GW Bush, but a barely passable EQ (Goleman, Emotional Quotient).

Kerry has worked only in the public sector - Middlesex County assistant district attorney, SecState in MA, Congress,Senate, SOS.

He was a regular suckup to the Kennedys, wrangling a place aboard USS Kennedy with Pres and Mrs Kennedy in summer of 1962 to watch an Americas Cup race off Newport RI.

Most of us Massachusetts people loathe the guy, and have for 40 years.

He and Obama share a capability - being able speak publicly for an interminable time, and saying nothing of substance.

He no doubt believes in global warning, but I doubt he knows what anthropomorphic (caused by humans) means.

While he is trying harder than Hillary did as SOS to do something worthwhile, I expect nothing from him.

Some have said he had wealth of his own. Does not seem to be true. He slept on his brother in law´s couch after first wife divorced him.

I am so sick of hearing about climate change (global warming or cooling or moderating as the particular weather dictates) I could scream. Just watched the Sunday talking heads and all agree that all agree its a FACT. Just to ask one question ...Who determined that today´s climate is the penultimate for the human race? Would warmer weather in Canada make them an agricultural super power? Would cooler weather in Africa help with starvation? Would melting polar caps aid sea life? This has to be determined before we make the incredible leap that global warming is a problem!

Rudyard Kipling in Captain’s Courageous described one boy’s youth during one period of time as a misguided exercise in the mis-use of power. I don’t recall the name of the man who told me that a life is a journey on a railroad train that having emerged from an infinitely long and dark tunnel is traveling for a while in the light, heading for an infinitely long and dark tunnel not far ahead. Experience is made of the scenes you can see changing out the windows. It is a lovely soft grey pre-dawn in this far corner of the fable called Oregon, and a time when back in the day this now old man once began trout fishing trips

To the American business world, he’s a giant — head of the nation’s second largest private company. To the political world, he is, by turns, the country’s No. 1 bogeyman and benefactor. To Wichita, he is the Wizard of Oz — ever-present yet rarely seen, influential but invisible. To the media, and by extension the public, Charles Koch is elusive and inscrutable. Until now.

If there is one thread that weaves throughout the conservative landscape it is this: if Barack Hussein Obama were a Republican, impeachment proceedings would have been seriously considered long ago, and the general mass media would have been providing the grist for it. Here’s the argument that seems the most common illustration: If George W. Bush had decided to issue congress-be-damned executive orders or agency authorization decisions concerning such major areas as immigration, health care, guns, minimum wage, wind farms, global warming, presidential records, natural gas, government travel expenses, establishing bureaucracies, Libya, abortion, pursue accession to the U.N.

Scott has written here some months ago about Diana West’s provocative book American Betrayal, which has excited considerable criticism from fellow conservatives. I have nothing to add to this controversy now, but I did stumble across this eight-minute video of my first mentor M. Stanton Evans introducing Diana at a recent dinner for Diana in New York. Take in the first few minutes and you’ll get a good helping of Stan’s droll humor, culminating in his “Law of Inadequate Paranoia.” You’l understand why so many are devoted to him.

Democrats were ecstatic in 2010 when they learned that ex-Governor Kitzhaber was still willing to run for office again. No reason to vet someone with his liberal experience and history. It was basically anyone but a Republican, something of a mantra in Oregon politics. But it seems that Oregon has replicated the same mistake the voters did with the Presidency: elect a Czar instead. Chris Dudley, the governor’s opponent, remember him? No matter what you might have thought of him, he would never have ok’d a Cover Oregon. But I digress.

“Why is it we fought against tyrannical, socialist enemies (during hot and cold wars) only to systematically and gradually adopt the same senseless governing philosophies. . .” It’s possible that some of the most well-adjusted people in the world belong to the Mafia. And why not, given that normal, external rules and convention are completely ignored in favor of doing, and getting by with whatever it takes to get the job done. If it means bribery, extortion, or threatening to kill, that’s just part of their routine measures of “persuasion.” Their lifestyle works so well they have little reason to doubt their own sense of well-being.

Is Barack Obama really the somewhat interesting guy who wrote Dreams From My Father? I doubt it. I don’t say Bill Ayers necessarily wrote the book, but I doubt that it was Obama. He has yet to formulate a political thought in an even slightly original way. Hackneyed phrases and deadening cliches are the essential medium of his expression. His speeches are like New York Times editorials. They ought to be accompanied by a warning: Reading may kill brain cells. There is no premium on originality in political rhetoric, but Obama tests the limits. He extends the concept of recycling into previously uncharted territory.

the Debt Ceiling

I wrote here that no matter what happens with the debt limit, the federal government will not default on its debt obligations. I also noted here that Moody’s–which certainly ought to know–agrees that there is zero chance of default on Treasury bonds. In recent days, many more commentators have made the same point. The government is legally obligated to recognize its debt obligations, and the existing $17 trillion debt can be serviced on less than ten percent of federal revenue. So there simply can’t be a default.

As many of you know, the federal budget is said to be out of control. I said this back when I was a senator from the great city of Chicago and state of Illinois, where I learned how governments can actually run properly. But what I meant wasn’t what you might think. I’m one step ahead of all of you, if you pardon my audacity. What I found out in my time at the Illinois statehouse and on the streets of Chicago is that you let your enemies do the dirty work.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
