    CONSPIRACY theorists are buzzing about John Kerry's connection to Lee Harvey Oswald and the JFK assassina tion. While no one in the lunatic fringe has gone so far as to suggest Kerry helped kill Kennedy ó yet ó they make much of the fact that a cousin of Kerry's, Michael Paine, was a close friend of Oswald who fre quently had the assassin as a house guest. Paine even stored the rifle Oswald used to shoot Kennedy at his house.

What began as a plan to destabilize the Alawite government by "playing on Sunni fears of Iranian influence" (to quote a leaked diplomatic cable from then-Deputy Chief of Mission in Syria William Roebuck) gradually metamorphosed into a overt and at times absurd effort to arm and train a series of rebel groups in an attempt to bring about regime change in Damascus. Those efforts have thus far failed, in part because...

    Barack Hussein Obama, Joe Biden and John Kerry walk into a room‚ĶBO, Joe and Jean arrive for the Keystone Pipeline funeralQuestion: how many degrees does the ambient I.Q. drop?Yesterday, after 6 years of courting environmentalists, El Presidente finally stuck a fork in the Keystone Pipeline. Because he is the Decider.And besides, who needs energy independence now that the Decider has stabilized relations with all the oil producing companies in the Middle East?† Indeed, who needs to rely on any of those disgusting fossil fuels when our Decider has paved the way for alternate energy sources like wind, solar, algae and...

    After Barack Obama’s totally predictable cancellation of the Keystone XL pipeline project (for now, at least) there was great celebration among the environmental brigade of the Social Justice Warriors. The evil pipeline was dead, along with all the jobs it would bring and the opportunity for us to capture and process much of Canada’s wealth of energy rather than it being shipped to China. (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...

    Given Jon Kerry's now front running status, I thought it would be important to go back and look at his immediate post 911 comments on Fox News Sunday. He rolled out the classic blame America line and implied we were contributory in provoking attacks by our hostility and policies that alienated people. Here's the interview transcript: SNOW: Senator Kerry, earlier on the broadcast -- I want to go back to something you mentioned earlier. Earlier on the broadcast, Attorney General Ashcroft was talking about a series of changes he thinks we need to do to improve our domestic vigilance. You...

    John Kerry just offered up such a load of horse manure that he outdid even the most outrageous of dhimmi fools (and there are a lot to choose from). Writing for Front Page Magazine, Daniel Greenfield reports on a tweet Kerry sent out on Thursday that read: "The Middle East today is the home of populations that are energetic, youthful, forward-looking. It is in them that we place our faith." Seriously? Yes, the secretary of state ‚Äď a professional fool ‚Äď is serious. But Kerry wasn‚Äôt finished. He had more to say. And he said it (again, pathetically, using Twitter):...

    BERLIN ó With Israelis and Palestinians caught in another widening cycle of bloodshed, Secretary of State John Kerry met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel in Berlin on Thursday and urged him to tone down the harsh language that American and European officials believe is fueling the violence. The message delivered on Thursday to Mr. Netanyahu, who claimed this week that a Muslim cleric had inspired the Holocaust, will be repeated in the coming days when Mr. Kerry meets the president of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, whose own comments Mr. Netanyahu and others have blamed for provoking attacks....

    By Daniel Tauber Israel News AgencyJerusalem, Israel ó October 15, 2015 Ö While Israelis are being chased by wild Palestinians armed with their kitchen knives, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is busy betraying Israel, again. Let us recall the first time Kerry betrayed Israel. Shortly after he was appointed Secretary of State, he initiated Israeli-Palestinian negotiations he believed could end a one-hundred year-old conflict in nine months. Though Israel had previously frozen Jewish construction in Judea for ten-months as part of a U.S. attempt to initiate negotiations, and although the Palestinian Authority still refused to negotiate, Kerry urged Israel...

    Integrating women into combat will eventually force lawmakers to have an "emotional discussion and debate" about whether women should also be part of the draft, the Army secretary said Monday. John McHugh said it's still too early to discuss whether women should have to sign up for the Selective Service as men have. 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. "If your objective is true and pure...

    US Secretary of State gives same message of condemning violence and need for calm to both Israelis and Palestinians. US Secretary of State John Kerry shared his "deep concern" Saturday over the recent wave of terror in Israel, though he made efforts to treat the two sides as equally culpable, AFP reports. Kerry called Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and PA President Abbas separately "to express his deep concern over the recent wave of violence and offer his support for efforts to restore calm as soon as possible," a State Department statement said.
