    Legitimizes and rewards Mahmoud Abbas' hate-education and incitement - which must be uprooted as a prerequisite to real, durable peace--and therefore indirectly fuels Palestinian terrorism Secretary of State John Kerry’s November 24, 2015 visit to Jerusalem confirmed his determination to reinvent “the energetic, youthful and forward looking Middle East” in accordance with his own worldview, irrespective of Middle East reality. Kerry recycled well-intentioned, but failed, assessments and tactics, further eroding the US posture of deterrence and US power projection among pro-US Arab countries. On October 28, 2015, Secretary John Kerry presented his vision of US policy in the Middle East,...

So does a radicalized Democratic Party leaping into insanity. A Democratic candidate was recently forced to drop out for tweeting that ISIS isn't evil. But don't look for Kerry to quit over his suggestion that the ISIS massacre of Charlie Hebdo artists and writers (not to mention, as his boss put it, some random (Jewish) folks in a deli) There’s something different about what happened from Charlie Hebdo, and I think everybody would feel that.

Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) noted that the deal might be, at most, morally binding on this administration.

    It’s a comfort to know the White House put up some token resistance before finally selling out what little leverage the American people’s representatives still had over this deal. This sounds like an international version of “failure theater.” Obama and Kerry planned all along to betray Congress by letting the UNSC vote on the Iran agreement first, but they had to at least nod at national sovereignty by arguing against it. They failed, but darn it, they sure tried. During the closed-door talks in Vienna on limiting Iran’s nuclear program, Secretary of State John Kerry argued that the United Nations...

    The notion that the $100 billion which Iran will obtain is going to make all the difference in the world is just its not true,' Kerry said. No, but it is going to make some difference.

    We have met the enemy and he is in the White House. The last time a feeble leader of a fading nation came bearing Peace in our time, a pugnacious controversial right-winger retorted, You were given the choice between war and dishonor. You chose dishonor, and you will have war. That right-winger went on to lead the United Kingdom against Hitler. The latest worthless agreement with a murderous dictatorship is being brandished by John Kerry, a man who instinctively seeks out dishonor the way a pig roots for truffles. John Kerry betrayed his uniform and his nation so many times...

    So why do we have them in the first place? Tomorrow, negotiations on the Iran nuclear deal will run up against another deadline. Then the deadline will be ignored, talks will continue, and a new deadline will probably be set. Eventually, well hit that deadline, and well do the same dance all over again. HTML5 video is not supported! Thats because John Kerry has just informed the world that these deadlines are pretty much meaningless. As the Free Beacon reports: Secretary of State John Kerry informed reporters on Thursday that nuclear talks with Iran would continue past any deadline and...

"We are not yet where we need to be on several of the most critical issues," Kerry told reporters outside the 19th-century Viennese palace that has hosted the...
