    Biden Bombshell - Dr. Sebastian Gorka on Hunter Biden's billion dollar deal with the Chinese: I am rarely at a loss for words, but this is potentially one of the biggest pay-for-play scandals outside of Uranium One. Peter Schweizer new book, 'Secret Empires' reveals that 10 days after Joe Biden and his son visit China in 2013, a Chinese bank completes a $1 billion deal with Biden's son who then buys Hennings, a U.S. military supplier. Like the Secretary Hillary Clinton Uranium One deal, Secretary of State John Kerry had to sign off on the deal for approval of the...

    President Donald Trump sent a clear message to European allies and senior administration officials Tuesday when he fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson:  the President remains steadfast on implementing his strategy to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons, even if it means dismantling the 2015 Iran nuclear deal established by President Obama, sources told this reporter.Trump, who ‘begrudgingly’ recertified the Iran deal January, will not re-certify in May if Germany, France or Great Britain back down from the conditions the administration set in place at the beginning of the year to hold Tehran accountable for its nuclear program, a White House official...

    Former CIA Officer and whistleblower Kevin Shipp says the reason for all the crime and treason at the FBI and DOJ all boils down to one thing–the Clinton so-called “charity.” Shipp explains, “Hillary Clinton was running and is running a global financial criminal syndicate. She was using these secret servers to conduct Clinton financial money laundering business. The shocking thing about that is all the former directors of the CIA that have come out to support her, from Clapper to Brennan to Morell to Robert Gates supporting her being elected, knew about this criminal syndicate. Comey was protecting it. Lynch...

    NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. — During his CPAC speech, Donald Trump took a moment to savage Barack Obama, John Kerry and the Iran nuclear deal as the “worst negotiated” deal in history. “We declined to certify the terrible, one-sided Iran nuclear deal,” Trump said to cheers from the crowd. “That was a horrible deal.” “Whoever heard — you give $150 billion to a nation that has no respect for you whatsoever?” Trump asked. “They are saying death to America while they are signing the agreement.” Trump took direct aim at Kerry, who was secretary of state and helped negotiate the agreement...

    As part of its exclusive series on Libya during the rule of late leader Moammar al-Gaddafi, Asharq Al-Awsat examines the regime’s ties with local and foreign powers, including its attempts to finance western presidential campaigns, particularly in France, the United States and Ukraine. Witnesses from the former regime said that Tripoli had spent some 50 million euros in 2007 to fund the campaign of French presidential candidate Nicolas Sarkozy. Lebanese businessman Ziad Takeieddine, who was present at Sarkozy’s meetings with Gaddafi revealed that the “figures were much higher than that.” Tripoli also pumped 5 million dollars in the presidential campaign...
  • Kerry: It Was ‘Strategic Thinking,’ Not a ‘Concession,’ to Leave Missiles Out of Iran Nuclear Deal

    Setting aside Iran’s ballistic missile threats, support for terrorism and regional destabilization when crafting the nuclear deal was not a concession but “strategic thinking” on the part of the negotiators, former Secretary of State John Kerry said Sunday. As he has done frequently since leaving office, Kerry used the opportunity of the Munich Security Conference to defend, at length, the Obama administration’s 2015 nuclear deal which President Trump has threatened to abandon. Kerry said that the U.S. recognized that the agreement being negotiated was not dealing with other problematic issues, including human rights abuses, missiles, arms shipments, support for Hezbollah,...

    Abbas would do well to study Ambassador Haley's remarks carefully and disregard Kerry's faux diplomacy Former Secretary of State John Kerry reportedly sought to undermine the Trump administration’s current policy in dealing with the nihilist Palestinian leadership. According to an article appearing in Maariv, as quoted by the Jerusalem Post, Kerry met a senior Palestinian leader, Hussein Agha, in London recently and told him to convey a clandestine message to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. The message was that Abbas should “play for time” and “not yield to President [Donald] Trump’s demands.” Kerry reportedly predicted that President Trump would not be...

    The US publicly told its partners on the Security Council that it would consider each draft resolution on its merit, but says that it never indicated how it would vote– up until the vote itself. WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration insists it was disciplined in its silence over how it would ultimately vote on resolutions related to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that ultimately reached the UN Security Council, where it holds veto power. Hours before such a vote was set to take place– on a resolution condemning Israel's settlement activity– one senior administration official told The Jerusalem Post that the president's...

    This is what actual "smart diplomacy" looks like. Under Obama, Iran knew that it could do anything short of nuking Chicago and get away with it. Once Obama made the Iran deal the centerpiece of his foreign policy legacy, any attack on it was an attack on him. Anything that might make Iran "walk away from the table" was taboo. So Hezbollah got a blank check to smuggle drugs. Members of Congress were spied on to protect the Iran deal. (Even well before Trump, Obama was using the NSA as a tool against his political opponents.) American personnel could be...

    During President Obama's second term in office, Secretary of State John Kerry, like his boss and other members of the same peapod (Samantha Power, Susan Rice, Joe Biden, Chuck Hagel, etc.), liked to warn Israel about such things as its isolation and alienation if it did not agree to Arab demands to return to its pre-'67 war, '49 armistice lines (they were never borders) which made it an over-sized ghetto, 9-15 miles wide at its waist, where most of its population and infrastructure are located. President George W. Bush commented that Texas had driveways larger than that. I don't know about driveways, but I also don't doubt...

    Netanyahu in Davos: Not only does Iran spread terror all over the world, it openly says it will use its weapons to destroy Israel. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spoke on Thursday evening at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Netanyahu criticized the nuclear deal with Iran and said, "I think that the current agreement is so flawed that it promises that Iran will have everything necessary to create nuclear weapons, including the enrichment of fissile material on a huge scale.” “What they can do today, at best, is enrich uranium for one bomb. Under the current agreement, they will...

Agha reportedly briefed P.A. officials in Ramallah afterwards on the wide-ranging conversation.According...

    John Kerry — who ran against George W. Bush in 2004 — told Palestinian officials he is strongly considering taking on President Trump in the next election. He also discussed the administration’s efforts to discuss a peace deal between Israel and Palestine following the White House’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Kerry had initially considered running in 2016, but ultimately decided against it. He previously lost the 2004 election after obtaining only 251 electoral college votes against Bush’s 286 votes.

    Congressional investigations into the Trump dossier have so far been focused on the FBI and Justice Department. They still are, but now investigators are also looking into a possible Obama State Department role in the collection and dissemination of sensational and still-unverified allegations against candidate Donald Trump gathered by a former British spy working for the Hillary Clinton campaign. In addition to having contacts in the Obama Justice Department and FBI, that former spy, Christopher Steele, was also well-connected with the Obama State Department. A book published in November by a correspondent at the Guardian, "Collusion: Secret meetings, dirty money,...

    As part of their broad effort to distract from the Trump-Russia investigation and undermine its foundation, President Trump’s allies in Congress seek any way to discredit the now famous “dossier” authored by former British spy Christopher Steele, including by tying it or him to the Obama administration. Their latest target for guilt by association is the State Department under John Kerry. The suggestion by Trump allies is that somehow Kerry’s State Department was involved in the compilation or distribution of the dossier, an allegation for which there is zero direct evidence. While it’s true that Steele did have connections to...

    Former Secretary of State John Kerry recently told a confidant of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas that he is considering a second run for the presidency in 2020. Kerry ran unsuccessfully against President George W. Bush in 2004. His comments, reported by the Israeli newspaper Ma'ariv, came during a London discussion about the Middle East peace process with Hussein Agha, a Lebanese academic who is close to Abbas. Kerry, 74, said his advanced age wouldn't be an impediment to mounting another White House bid, and urged Agha to tell Abbas to 'stay strong' and 'play for time' while Trump is...
