    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"‚ÄĒor did he let the truth slip of precisely how he and President Obama really feel? View the video here.

(Which it will be anyway when the Northern Gateway Pipeline is complete, whether we get some of it or not.) But as with all things in the liberal enclaves of the country, one victory is...

But, as the military drives toward a Jan. 1 deadline to open some or all combat positions to women, McHugh acknowledged the country will need to have the conversation if women have the same opportunities in the military as men.

    Education remains separate and unequal nearly everywhere in the United States, but Confederate-flag-waving Southerners arenít responsible for the most racially divided schools. That title goes to New York, where 64 percent of black students attend schools with few, if any, white students, according to a recent report by the Civil Rights Project. In fact, the Northeast is the only region where the percentage of black students in extremely segregated schools ó those where at least 90 percent of students are minorities ó is higher than it was in the 1960s. Schools in the South, on the other hand, saw the...

    Kerry today said, "We never had a discussion about 'anywhere, anytime' managed access." Mr. Kerry is not telling the truth. Anywhere: "In addition, Iran has agreed to allow IAEA to investigate any suspicious site or any allegations of covert nuclear activities anywhere." John Kerry; April 2, 2015; Lausanne, Switzerland; http://www.state.gov/secretary/remarks/2015/04/240196.htm "Iran will be required to grant access to the IAEA to investigate suspicious sites or allegations of a covert enrichment facility, conversion facility, centrifuge production facility, or yellowcake production facility anywhere in the country."

    CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa ó Bernie Sanders told veterans in Iowa Friday that unlike some other politicians, he doesn't pay lip service to their concerns. "It is very easy to raise the flag at a troop deployment, it is very easy for a politician to give a moving speech on Veterans Day," Sanders said. "But it is very hard to go down that long road with the men and women who served and make sure that they continue to get all the benefits, all the healthcare, that they are entitled to for the rest of their lives." The Vermont senator told...

    Itís time to draft Al Gore: If Democrats want to win, itís clear neither Hillary nor Sanders is the way The presidential election is still sixteen months away, but this much is clear: Hillary Clinton is a vulnerable candidate. Since announcing her candidacy in April, Clintonís stature has steadily slipped. Things got even worse this week. We learned, first, that Bernie Sanders eclipsed Clinton in small, individual donations, which is an indicator of popular support among likely voters. Second, and more problematic, the newest AP poll revealed significant weaknesses among Democrats on a host of issues, including trust, character, and...

    Secretary of State John Kerry said on Sunday that the United States and Iran may fail to reach a final nuclear agreement despite the talks being extended past their June 30 deadline so that the sides could hash out remaining differences over the scope and scale of the Islamic Republicís contested nuclear program. Western observers suggested the statement from Kerry was designed to provide cover for the administration if a deal with wide-ranging concessions to Iran is struck. Kerry told reporters in a brief press conference Sunday afternoon that he is prepared to leave town without a deal that has...

    commentary by John Velisek USN (Ret), staff writer Via CNS News: ď ĎThere is nothing sanctimoniousí or arrogant in the State Departmentís publication of an annual report on human rights around the world, Secretary of State John Kerry said Thursday, adding that the U.S. cannot help but be humble itself given the racial tensions at home over the past year. Releasing the latest report Ė covering 2014 and issued 120 days late Ė Kerry said some foreign governments may take issue with it.

    No small achievement. In case youíve stopped paying attention, as itís hard to follow complete absurdity over the long haul, tomorrow is the deadline for a nuclear deal with Iran - and weíre nowhere close to getting one. So, no deal, right? After all, a deadline is a deadline, right? Of course not, sillies. This deadline is as meaningless as any of Obamaís other red lines. The deadline will be extended, a deal will be reached, it will be horrible, and it will help the Iranians along in the process of developing nuclear weapons. Weíve already conceded the point on...

    During recent meetings with Chinese officials, Secretary of State John Kerry agreed to establish a "U.S.-China Civil Space Cooperation Dialogue." A State Department spokesman says the first meeting will be held before the end of October, but could not provide any other details. The lengthy list of "outcomes" from the seventh round of the U.S.-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue (S&ED) held in Washington, DC June 22-24, 2015, includes a section on cooperation in science, technology and agriculture. Under that heading, the two countries agreed as follows: "101. Space: The United States and China decided to establish regular bilateral government-to-government consultations...

    Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce, the funding arm of the political network backed by the billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch, wants a lot more hard information from the crowded field of presidential contenders before deciding what to do with its considerable resources. The group is pressing every 2016 candidate to detail on the record their plans for economic growth, deficit reduction, entitlement reform, criminal justice and even foreign policy. The tax-exempt entity, a key node in a constellation of conservative entities that aims to spend $889 million before the next White House election, distributed a detailed survey Thursday to...

    In a disclosure that could have political implications for election campaigns, the State Departmentís chief watchdog reported Thursday that worker harassment complaints have nearly tripled inside the department during the tenures of Hillary Rodham Clinton and John F. Kerry ó but the department still doesnít have mandatory training for all employees. ďA significant increase in reported harassment inquiries in the Department of State over the past few fiscal years supports the need for mandatory harassment training,Ē the departmentís inspector general warned in an oversight report that reviewed the agencyís Office of Civil Rights. The report states that formal harassment claims...
