John Kerry: The Betrayal
Times of Israel, by David Horovitz

Original Article

Posted By:Flyright, 7/27/2014 8:36:02 AM

When The Times of Israel’s Avi Issacharoff first reported the content of John Kerry’s ceasefire proposal on Friday afternoon, I wondered if something had gotten lost in translation. It seemed inconceivable that the American secretary of state would have drafted an initiative that, as a priority, did not require the dismantling of Hamas’s rocket arsenal and network of tunnels dug under the Israeli border. Yet the reported text did not address these issues at all, nor call for the demilitarization of Gaza. It seemed inconceivable that the secretary’s initiative would specify the need to address Hamas’s demands for a lifting of

Not a single mention of Obama in this article? Kerry is merely doing Obama´s bidding. But they couldn´t bring themselves to blame the delicate genius.

But actually, it’s worse than that. What emerges from Kerry’s self-initiated ceasefire mission — Israel had already accepted the Egyptian ceasefire proposal; and nobody asked him to come out on a trip he prefaced with sneering remarks about Israel’s attempted “pinpoint” strikes on Hamas terror targets — is that Jerusalem now regards him as duplicitous and dangerous.

Duplicitous and dangerous ... the motto of the Obama administration.

There was something on Twitter earlier that a new tunnel had been found leading into dining room of house in kibutz in southern israel!

What did anyone expect from Kerry?
While in uniform, he lied in testimony before Congress, and while still on active duty went to Paris and supported America´s enemy.
He threw his medals over the WH fence, but he didn´t.
He voted for a Bill, before he was against it.
He marries his women rich and richer.
So, who is surprised?

Why would anyone be surprised by this development? Kerry began his career in the military using dishonesty, deceit, and gross manipulation. If you doubt me, just ask his Swift Boat shipmates. He quickly followed that scurrilous enterprise with his gross lies about soldiers and marines in RVN. Only a state like Massachusetts would elevate such an obvious fraud into a position of political power. That he is now our Secretary of State is simply proof of our descent into a depraved and self-destructive international policy.

Hmmm!!! This past week Iran´s Ayatollah Ali Khamenei came out saying Israel must be destroyed and the confrontation must expand beyond Gaza. Nothing new with that statement BUT lets not forget two salient points: 1) Kerry is involved in negotiations with Iran about Nuclear material and being able to make nuclear weapons and 2) His daughter is married to an American of Iranian descent who still has relatives in Iran.

Draw your own conclusions.

When you are worth either millions or billions most of your life without a single accomplishment you tend to be shocked when the world doesn’t adore your ideas like the sycophants down at the yacht club. But not to worry, Big John will retain his unimaginable high self esteem no matter how bad he mucks things up.

John Kerry has been a traitor from the Vietnam war where he lied before congress and was praised by the Marxist communist media and fellow comrades of America citizenry.

Unless enough freedom loving citizens rise up an vote all these comrades out of government then fire all those in the bureaucracy America will be a Marxist communist country in just a few more years. One World Government of Marxist Communism as envisioned by the U.N. and Agenda 21 began in 1971.

A Brief History & Description of Agenda 21.

Agenda 21 is a plank of UN policy encouraging the globe to embrace Sustainable Development, which conservatives understand as a code word for global Marxism:
Sustainable development sounds like a nice idea, right? It sounds nice, until you scratch the surface and find that Agenda 21 and sustainable development are really cloaked plans to impose the tenets of social justice/socialism on the world. At risk from Agenda 21; Private property ownership; Single-family homes; Private car ownership and individual travel choices; and Privately owned farms.

The movement behind Agenda 21 has a long history and isn’t limited to the 1992 Rio Earth Summit. It began in 1971 with the Ramsar Convention On Wetlands, a treaty which was later put into force in 1975 and adopted by the United States in 1987. Ramsar is not officially affiliated with the United Nations, however, it works with the United Nations and many UN accredited NGO’s.

Kerry´s betrayal? Which raises the question...Just what, in the name of Benedict Arnold, were the Republicrat Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys in The United States Senate thinking on January 29, 2013, when they crossed the aisle and voted with The Dark Siders to confirm this certified traitor, who is "honored" with his own "special" picture/exhibit in The Communist War Remmants Museum in downtown Ho Minh City, as America´s 68th Secretary of State by a vote of 94 to 3? Only Senators Ted Cruz and John Cornyn of Texas and Senator James M. Inhofe of Oklahoma voted against the confirmation. Lurch voted "present."

It isn´t just the insufferable, lame brain Kerry who is at fault, it is the whole Administration of Czars, Marxists, and anti-American slobs who run it for the benefit of everyone except the American people.

Joseph Stalin would be proud, and so would Adolph Hitler for that matter. I´m also disgusted at American Jews. History is repeating itself, and they are voting for self annihilation again.

Jerusalem now regards him as duplicitous and dangerous.

Kerry was confirmed just as Hagel, and countless other America-haters were confirmed. Our ´stolid´ GOPE dreamed of going to the prom and sold their soul to the devil. Before the creature took office, there were some of the unwashed peons who felt that we just might make it thru the h´ll to come. After all, we had congress on our side. They would be able to keep The Blob under control Little did we know that there is no difference in the thinking of either. White/Black -all form a body which does indeed dislike WTP and hates America.

For every non-American mind confirmed, another pillar of America had crumbled. Do hope that the prom dance card for them was well worth it. This group is to blame as much as the rats for even attempting. FEW of our elites have even considered the oath they took. That oath was only for show and meant nothing to them. They have lied from the swearing-in to the present. Either empty hearted or evil in their heart, they are one and the same.

Kerry is the perfect foil for Obama. They both think they can make our enemies our friends by being nice to and yielding to them. In fact they don´t even think of them as enemies since they´re only behaving that way because our own evil capitalist system robs them, keeps them down and makes them resentful. They´re just behaving naturally. Our country is led by people who have a death wish for it. We have to wake up to that fact.

The facts presented in the Horovitz article are ominous. The refresher course on Kerry´s sorry life and morality (e.g. #4) in this thread was invaluable. Kerry does Obama´s bidding; that´s a given. The takeaway for me from the combined article/thread is this:

When the Middle East erupts in nuclear war within the next two years, Obama and Kerry will be to blame.

Strong stuff, I know, meant as much for the Progressive/Democrat readers of this site, as for you, fellow LDotters. I do not enjoy these doom-&-gloom predictions. I enjoy peace and co-existence as much as anyone else. But this one is a no brainer. Here´s why.

1) There are two countries in the ME with nuclear weapons: Israel and Iran (don´t quibble about Iran).
2) Regarding attempts to exterminate the Jews, Israel says, "Never Again!". They mean it.
3) Iran, on the other hand, considers it its sacred duty to exterminate the Jews.
4) When the representative of Israel´s major ally is described as "duplicitous and dangerous"...
5) When that same ally meets with Israel´s enemies; provides financial, moral, and diplomatic support to an enemy (Hamas) Israel is presently at war with...
6) And gives almost-daily public indications of support for Israel´s enemies and/or criticism of Israel...
7) And when the UN, world media, and many countries are continuously critical of Israel´s right to defend itself...and for its civilians not to fear rockets from above or tunneling terrorists from below...
8) Don´t be surprised if Israel runs out of patience...or safety margin.

We always end up at the question, Is Obama, Kerry & assorted flying monkeys in this regime incompetent or are they evil geniuses who are carefully following a plan?

My opinion, if the evil genius scenario were true, Kerry would have gone to Israel with a plan that sounded great but would have inevitably screwed Israel through deceit and treachery. Instead, he made a complete ass of himself, insulted Israel and declared his open preference for Hamas terror.

Genius? I think not. Incompetent? As Severus Snape says so well - "OBVIOUSLY!"

Behind the rotten culture is arrogance. After uniformed officers failed to take out 42-year-old Omar J. Gonzalez when he hopped over the fence and ran into the White House, the Secret Service issued a statement saying the officers “showed restraint.” The statement provoked laughter among senior FBI officials. But in its arrogance, the Secret Service thought it could get away with issuing such an outrageous claim and the public would accept it.With similar hubris, the agency leaves the doors to the White Horse unlocked. The idea is that the vaunted Secret Service can handle any problem and can waive the

Can´t anyone in government do anything right these days? Time was when the Secret Service seemed an exemplar of professionalism and dedication, an agency with a focused mission and largely immune from the bureaucratic bumbling inherent to big government. In recent years, it´s seemed more like Animal House. The intruder blew past one guard and was stopped only by an off-duty officer. And this was one of hundreds of apparent security breaches.

A Canadian member of the loathed Islamic State claimed the group is plotting an attack on New York City — and will one day fly its flag over the White House. Days before Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi warned of terrorist plots on subways in New York City and Paris, a video emerged showing an ISIS shill named Farah Shirdon widening the scope of the threat. “God willing, we will make some attacks in New York soon,” he said in a video interview with Vice News last week. “A lot of brothers are mobilizing there right now.” He vowed that U.S.-based fighters are “mobilizing for a brilliant attack.”

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Top White House officials on Friday worked to reassure the American public that the national response to Ebola is under control. Leaders of the country’s health, defense and military branches stressed that they are taking the right steps to contain the spread of the deadly virus, which was first diagnosed in the U.S. on Tuesday.

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It
