  • Climate Change Getting So Bad State Dept. Has Issued Worldwide Travel Warning

    John Kerry has called "climate change" the most serious security threat we face. It must be getting really bad, because the State Department has issued a travel warning , I assume to convince people to cancel flights which would reduce the emissions that are making the planet warmer and causing people commit acts of terror: The United States issued a worldwide travel alert for Americans amid concerns that terror groups and individuals plan more attacks after the Paris massacres. The State Department warned that groups like ISIS, al Qaeda and Boko Haram "continue to plan terrorist attacks in multiple regions."...

    The story is not how little support Republican Gov. Charlie Baker is getting from Democrats on his common-sense stand on Syrian refugees -- as The Boston Globe would have you believe -- but how much. That support ranges from Statehouse Democrats like House Speaker Robert DeLeo and Senate President Stan Rosenberg, to U.S Rep. Steven Lynch of South Boston and (sort of) Boston Mayor Marty Walsh.

    Long War Journal ^ | 20 November 2015 | Bill Roggio and Thomas Joscelyn
    Secretary of State John Kerry believes that al Qaeda’s “top leadership” has been “neutralize[d]” as “an effective force.” A brief look at al Qaeda's position throughout the globe tells a different story. Dozens of senior al Qaeda terrorists, including of course Osama bin Laden, have been eliminated. But al Qaeda is not a simple top-down terrorist group that can be entirely vanquished by killing or detaining select key leaders. It is a paramilitary insurgency organization that is principally built for waging guerilla warfare. Terrorism is a part of what al Qaeda does, but not nearly all. And a key reason...

    Suggestion for John Kerry: if traveling makes you so tired that you say things undermining the war against radical Islamic terrorism, stay home on Nantucket and conduct your diplomacy by Skype . . . On today's Morning Joe, here's how Mark Halperin explained Kerry's despicable statement about the "legitimacy" and "rationale" of the Charlie Hebdo attacks: "Secretary Kerry has a history when he's tired in particular after he hurtles around the world of speaking imprecisely." Was Kerry speaking "imprecisely"—or did he let the truth slip of precisely how he and President Obama really feel? View the video here.

    Speaking Monday in Valparaiso, Chile, Secretary of State John Kerry was asked why the term "climate refugees" does not exist in international law. Kerry said the question was "right on point," and although the term is a new one, he expects it's "just a matter of time" before it is incorporated into international policy. "We have climate refugees today," Kerry told a town hall meeting on the sidelines of an Oceans conference.

    When Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke to the UN General Assembly this week, neither Secretary of State Kerry nor even our UN Ambassador, Samantha Power, was present. Why not? The State Department has said Kerry was involved in some kind of conference call or video conference with the White House. OK, lets call that plausible. What about Power? Rick Grenell, for years the spokesman at the US Mission to the UN and a very well-informed observer, tweeted yesterday that Power was instructed to stay away. Think of how petty that instruction, which can only have come from the White...

    Valparaso (Chile) (AFP) - US Secretary of State John Kerry warned Monday that a Russian warplane's "incursion" into the air space of Washington's NATO ally Turkey risked provoking a serious escalation. "We're greatly concerned about it because it is precisely the kind of thing that had Turkey responded under its rights could have resulted in a shoot-down," he said, at a public event in Chile.
  • BOMBSHELL: Obama Makes SICK Move To SABOTAGE Netanyahus Incredible Speech At The U.N.

    This is how pathetic Obama is. Just as the leader of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu was set to speak in front of the United Nations General Assembly in New York on Thursday, President Barack Obama pulled U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power out to have a (fake) meeting. Obama is such an embarrassment it is absolutely incomprehensible. He uses scumbag ghetto tactics. He never, EVER should have become president of the GREATEST COUNTRY ON PLANET EARTH. It is sickening frankly. A State Department spokesperson told Breitbart that Ambassador Power and Secretary Kerry were...

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke to the UN General Assembly today in New York City. At one point the auditorium broke out is applause after Netanyahus comments on Iranian threats. The US delegates refused to applaud. Netanyahu told the General Assembly: Heres a general rule that I learned and you must have learned in your lifetime. When bad behavior is rewarded it only gets worse. The General Assembly audience broke out in applause. The US delegates sat silent.

    Secretary of states legacy increasingly linked to Iranian regime fortunes Growing speculation that John Kerry will receive a Nobel Peace Prize for finalizing the Iranian nuclear deal is generating renewed criticism of his close relationship with the Iranian foreign minister, Javad Zarif, a key public face for the theocratic regime who is rumored to be a probable co-recipient with Kerry. Rumors have been circulating for months that Kerry and Zarif will be co-selected for the prize. The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, a leading Swedish think-tank, recommended in July that the two be selected for the Nobel in 2016. Lawmakers...

    I’ve read upwards of a dozen stories in the past 12 hours about Russia skipping ISIS to bomb American-supported forces in Syria but I haven’t read a word yet about U.S. reprisals.Perhaps, in the endless quest for “international dialogue,” we’re past such primitive things. I never understood the appeal of Trump until I saw Kerry holding hands with Lavrov the day Putin started bombing secular rebels in Syria.— Daniel Foster (@DanFosterType) October 1, 2015 I sympathize, although, er, President Trump might not be pounding the table about this either. The Pentagon sure is, though: One of the airstrikes hit...

    Given that we just lost another war that we won (Afghanistan, in case youve lost track); and given that Russias Vladdy just declared himself king of the mountain in the Middle East and has commenced bombing missions on our allies in Syria, perhaps we should hear from our Secretary of State, Jean Carr. He thinks its time to deconflict - which is something like coordinate, if by coordinate you mean get out of the way. There seems to be a consensus that Brit Hume summarized the situation best: Its unclear if this serves as another example of Barrys propensity for...

    In his Loyal Opposition blog, New York Times ed page editor Andrew Rosenthal goes after the Justice Departments decision to prosecute former CIA officer, former Democratic Senate staffer and Huffington Post blogger John Kiriakou for leaking classified information including the names of CIA operatives to journalists. Rosenthal writes, That may seem simple: CIA officer, classified information disclosed, prison. But take a closer look. Hes been charged with revealing that two men accused of organizing the Sept. 11 attacks, Abu Zubaydah and Khalid Sheikh Mohamed, were tortured. So the man who blew the whistle on torture may go to...
