I know it's funny, but Kerry admits that all this time he and Obama and everybody in the Regime have been claiming that climate change represents the biggest threat. But now it's ISIS!

Itís no secret, after all, that the Obama administration opposed the ďBrexitĒ referendum that passed last week, which makes John Kerryís skepticism about its actual implementation a bit self-serving. That doesnít necessarily make him incorrect, however: The US secretary of state has raised doubts about whether Brexit will ever happen, suggesting most leave campaigners do not truly believe in Britainís divorce from the EU and do not know how to achieve it.

    Have the Obama White House, the U.S. State Department, and part of the Washington media, press, and TV been engaged in a vast left-wing conspiracy to lie to and deceive the American public about the nuclear deal with Iran? One might think so, since no U.S. official or politician has been held responsible for the tangle of lies, attempt at censorship, and linguistic equivocations on the issue. The great Machiavelli observed that "occasionally, words must veil the facts. But let this happen in a way that no one become aware of it." This seems to have been the objective of...

    Days after Iran received hundreds of billions of dollars in sanctions relief from the controversial nuclear deal, US Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday admitted a good portion of the massive funds will go to terror. Speaking at the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Kerry spoke about the massive kickback Tehran is receiving after nuclear sanctions were lifted last weekend. "I think that some of it will end up in the hands of the IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps) or other entities, some of which are labeled terrorists," he acknowledged to CNBC. "You know, to...

    How does Iran spell relief? K E R R Y. Secretary of State John Kerry told reporters at the State Department that the lifting of sanctions on Iran is just "days away." The $150 billion windfall for the terrorist state will happen "sooner rather than later," Kerry said. Meanwhile, there will be a vote in the House next week that would prevent the administration from lifting sanctions on Iranian banks and financial institutions unless the administration can certify that the companies are not financing terrorism or ballistic missiles. The Hill: According to reports, the White House has backed away from...

    The implementation of the Iranian nuclear deal may be only "days away", Secretary of State John Kerry declared Thursday, according to the AFP news agency. Kerry told reporters he had spoken to Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, who insisted Iran would live up to its promises, and added the United States would be ready to begin lifting its nuclear-related sanctions against Tehran. "The foreign minister made it clear to me they intend to complete obligations with respect to implementation day as rapidly as possible," Kerry was quoted as having said. "And we are currently engaged ourselves in making certain...

    U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Monday said Iran made ‚Äúsignificant progress‚ÄĚ in keeping up its end of the nuclear deal with world powers, after it was reported that the Islamic Republic sent a major shipment of low-enriched uranium materials to Russia, AFP reports. Ali Akbar Salehi, head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization, told the local ISNA news agency, "The fuel exchange process has taken place." The Russian foreign ministry confirmed the report, according to AFP. SNA's report said Iran had sent 8.5 tons of low-enriched nuclear material to Russia and received "around 140 tons of natural uranium in...

    Republicans on Monday blasted Secretary of State John Kerry for suggesting in a letter to his Iranian counterpart that the administration could help the country get around new visa restrictions passed by Congress. Instead of bending over backwards to try to placate the Iranian regime, the White House needs to be holding it accountable for its recent missile tests, its continued support for terrorism, and its wrongful imprisonment of Americans, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce, R-Calif ... Kerry responded to these concerns in a Dec. 19 letter to his Iranian counterpart, Mohammad Javad Zarif -- and suggested the...

    Kerry Says Paris Agreement Crafted To Avoid Congress By SARAH WESTWOOD 12/13/15 10 Secretary of State John Kerry said Sunday the climate agreement reached this week in Paris did not contain any enforcement provisions because Congress would not have approved them. "It doesn't have mandatory targets for reduction and it doesn't have an enforcement, compliance mechanism," Kerry said during an interview on "Fox News Sunday." Kerry said such mechanisms were not included because Congress would have refused to greenlight the deal. Binding legal requirements would have made the Paris agreement a treaty, requiring approval from two-thirds of the Senate. Because...

    After months of research into Kerry's ancestry, Burke's Peerage, experts on British aristocracy, reported Monday that the Vietnam war veteran is related to all the royal houses of Europe and can claim kinship with Czar Ivan "The Terrible," a previous Emperor of Byzantium and the Shahs of Persia. Burke's director Harold Brooks-Baker said Kerry had his mother, Rosemary Forbes, to thank for most of his royal connections. "Every maternal blood line of Kerry makes him more royal than any previous American president," Brooks-Baker said.

    May I remind John sKerry that it is existing federal law (8 USC) that anyone associated with the Nazi Party and the Holocaust, despite the passage of time, is permanently ineligible to enter the United States. May I also remind John sKerry that one's political affiliation is, just like their religious affiliation, a voluntary matter. And may I further remind John sKerry, along with the mainslime media and the other so-called "candidates" who are evidencing a desire to see terrorists attack Americans on American soil, and thus should be run out of town on a rail, that only a very...

    Posted Dec. 12, 2015 As profoundly disturbing as Donald Trump is, we are far and away more troubled by the legion of those who support him. We've seen their posts to Facebook and their Tweets. We've received their email chains and heard their defense of Donald Trump’s horrifying lies, racist, sexist, and culturally and religiously intolerant claims at social gatherings. Enough. ...snip We understand from a Washington Post/ABC News poll that the majority of Trump's Republican supporters are white, less educated and working class. It’s easy to see a correlation between this poll and a report released last month by...
