    John Kerry's Department of State is responsible for functions that are so essential to the well-being of America and Americans that the Secretary of State is in the line of succession to the U.S. Presidency. On May 6, 2016 Time Magazine published the transcript of the commencement address Kerry delivered at Northeastern University. Here is an important excerpt from his remarks: “I think that everything that we’ve lived and learned tells us that we will never come out on top if we accept advice from soundbite salesmen and carnival barkers who pretend the most powerful country on Earth can remain...

    This is so severely delusional, Kerry should seek professional help. Afghanistan has not been an “achievement.” What has the Obama Administration “achieved” in Afghanistan? The needless deaths of U.S. soldiers in green-on-blue attacks. The wasting of billions of dollars that has been given to the corrupt Afghan government. And what about the Taliban, that the U.S. went in to Afghanistan to fight? Is it defeated? No: as soon as the Americans are gone, it will take power again. These people are nuts. Secretary of State John Kerry recently spoke at the Oxford Union and addressed a range of issues from...

    Perhaps the Carter administration was comparably hostile to Israel, but the passive-aggressive, honor-deficient Obama administration has both caused and acceded to greater danger to the Jewish State than any other U.S. administration since 1948.Yesterday, Secretary of State John Kerry announced that he would not be attending the Mideast conference to be held in Paris on May 30, which was organized by France's socialist President Francois Hollande.According to State, Kerry is simply too busy.As a result, Hollande has postponed the conference and no alternative date has been set.Eager to force Israel towards negotiations with the bifurcated, terror-supporting Palestinian leadership, Hollande had...

    Has there ever been a president cooler than Obama? That's the question that Newsweek, an ostensible "news" magazine, asked last week via Twitter. The tweet featured a picture of the president slapping hands with his friend and political supporter, the rapper Jay Z. It's hard to argue with Newsweek on this one. Obama is cool -- though that alone doesn't make him a great president. When it comes to leaders, coolness and greatness might actually be mutually exclusive. Cool people aren't usually substantive and frequently lack the moral courage to do the right thing when the right thing isn't cool...

The Palestine Liberation Organization's Saeb Erekat told the newspaper that Kerry has told Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas that he plans to attend the summit, to take place in Paris on May 30. At this stage, however, State Department officials will not confirm that Kerry will be attending the foreign ministers' meeting, and Washington has been reluctant to express support for the French initiative.

    U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry met Saudi Arabia's King Salman in Jeddah on Sunday to discuss the fragile truce in Syria, before broader talks with Russia, Iran and other countries in Vienna on Tuesday. Kerry has said he hopes to strengthen a "cessation of hostilities" agreement between Syrian government forces and rebels, which has been undermined by fighting in some areas, and to increase humanitarian aid deliveries to besieged areas. On Friday, he said the meetings with the king and the Saudi interior and defense ministers - the two most senior princes - would try "to make sure that...

    It has been the longstanding belief of these authors that Obama’s White House, especially its foreign policy penchant for supporting jihadis (both Sunni and Shiite), is run by a troika. The front man of the troika is obviously Barack Hussein Obama, who uses his position as President of the United States of America to cajole the U.S. and the rest of the world to accept terrorists as politically legitimate players. Obama’s deputy, and often his mouthpiece, is Secretary of State John Kerry. Kerry is indirectly related through his daughter’s marriage to the Iranian foreign minister, Javad Zarif. The brains of...

At an unusual meeting in London, the top U.S. diplomat joined Britain’s top commerce official to challenge what Kerry called “misinterpretations or mere rumors” about U.S. sanctions on Iran, the most sweeping of which were lifted in exchange for Iran rolling back its nuclear program. The list of banks whose leaders attended was a Who’s Who of powerful financial...

    Don’t they know that our colleges and universities are graduating zombies, and zombies always do as they’re programmed? When he thinks at all, Secretary of State John Kerry thinks exactly as latter-day terrorists do, that no wall is big enough to keep dangerous terrorists out of the United States. Public safety, peace and security are no longer the responsibility of elected governments. That’s the bleak and hopeless message John Kerry dropped on Northeastern University students on their graduation day. In student vernacular it can be translated to:“You can run but you can’t hide”.

    The dropping of two atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945 remains the only wartime use of nuclear weapons in history. No one knows exactly how many Japanese citizens were killed by the two American bombs. A macabre guess is around 140,000. The atomic attacks finally shocked Emperor Hirohito and the Japanese militarists into surrendering. John Kerry recently visited Hiroshima. He became the first Secretary of State to do so -- purportedly as a precursor to a planned visit next month by President Obama, who is rumored to be considering an apology to Japan...

Apologizing for America is an Obama theme, and he is expected to continue it during his visit to Japan, a World War II enemy that provoked a war with the U.S.

    Stop by your local post office and you might just see a poster of Rodrigo “Timochenko” Londono hanging next to the Most Wanted posters of bank robbers and fugitives. The State Department is offering a $5 million reward for information about the Communist terrorist leader. But all the State Department had to do was ask Secretary of State Kerry. Obama did the wave with the Cuban dictator and Kerry met with Timochenko , the leader of FARC, a Marxist terrorist organization that appears on his own department’s list of foreign terrorist organizations a little above Al Qaeda. Timochenko is a...

    "I think there is a wide swath of views that have been expressed on the campaign trail from more than one candidate that has caused concern among many foreign leaders," spokesman John Kirby told reporters. Kirby didn't name names, but his comments came a day after Secretary of State John Kerry said the 2016 race is an "embarrassment" for the United States, which was widely seen as a comment on Trump's campaign. Kerry said "every leader I meet" is shocked about the race, and said the rhetoric being used is an "embarrassment to our country."

    On Easter Sunday in Lahore, Pakistan, Christian women, children and their families went to a park to congregate and celebrate their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The day turned to horror when they were targeted for their faith by an Islamic suicide bomber, who detonated his vest and killed 72 people while injuring hundreds more. The Pakistani Taliban, which has pledged allegiance to ISIS, quickly took responsibility for the attack and specifically stated the crowd was targeted because it wasn't just any crowd, but a Christian crowd worshiping on one of their holiest, most joyous days.  "We claim responsibility for the...

    Washington (AFP) - Secretary of State John Kerry warned that the Republican presidential campaign has descended into "an embarrassment" that raises awkward questions abroad about the reliability of the United States. Kerry said that everywhere he goes, every leader he meets asks about what is happening in America. "They cannot believe it. I think it is fair to say that they're shocked. They don't know where it's taking the United States of America," Kerry said in an interview on the Sunday CBS news show "Face The Nation." "It upsets people's sense of equilibrium about our steadiness, about our reliability,...

    “They’re not an existential threat to us,” President Obama said, defending his indifference to the latest ISIS terrorist attack in Europe. “Groups like can’t destroy us, they can’t defeat us. They don’t produce anything,” he said. (Well, they are producing oil and bombs and fresh new terrorists, but never mind.) So what should the U.S. do to fight this non-existential threat that doesn’t produce anything? Let’s put on a show! The day after the attacks in Brussels, the State Department posted a $1.5 million grant proposal to develop “a television drama series that addresses the issue of countering violent extremism...

    Vladimir Putin is worried about how America is doing. The Russian president on Thursday teased Secretary of State John Kerry, who was visiting in Moscow, for carrying his own luggage, asking whether it was a sign that the U.S. is somehow struggling. Story Continued Below "On the one hand, it’s quite a democratic way of conduct, but on the other hand, I thought probably the situation in the United States is not that good and there is no one to assist the secretary of state in carrying his luggage," said Putin, whose own country's economy has been hurting due to...

    Then I thought there was something in that briefcase of yours you couldn’t trust anyone else with. Probably you brought some money to haggle with on key matters”. John Kerry said he would reveal the secret of his briefcase’s contents later, promising that it would be a surprise. “When we have a private moment, I’ll show you what’s in that briefcase. And I think you’ll be surprised. Pleasantly.” Kerry arrived in Moscow on Thursday and has been holding negotiations with Russia’s President and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. The negotiations are said to concern a number of issues, such as the...
