  • State Dept Defends Kerry Receiving Prize for Iran Nuke Deal

    State Department spokesman John Kirby defended his boss, Secretary of State John Kerry, on Monday for accepting an award for his role in negotiating the Iran nuclear deal along with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif. Kirby and Zarif were given the annual Chatham House Prize for finalizing the agreement in July 2015 and working to implement it in January 2016. Critics of the deal in the United States say that it does not do enough to curb Iran’s nuclear capabilities and gives the Islamic Republic too much sanctions relief without addressing the country’s malign activities in the Middle East.

    A profile of Secretary of State John Kerry published Sunday in The New Yorker reveals that, 11 years after his election loss to George W. Bush in 2004, Kerry still believes he was robbed via systematic fraud. The article itself, written by David Remnick, focuses mostly on Kerry’s efforts to achieve peace and democracy in the Middle East, but it also dwells extensively on his presidential defeat more than a decade ago. “In 2004, when Kerry lost the Presidential race to George W. Bush, who is widely considered the worst President of the modern era, he refused to challenge the...

    Secretary of State John Kerry accused Russia and Syrian dictator Bashar Assad of committing war crimes in their assault on rebel-held territory, including hospitals and aid workers, and called for an investigation. "Russia and the regime owe the world more than an explanation about why they keep hitting hospitals, medical facilities, children and women," Kerry said before a meeting with French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault. "These are acts that beg for an appropriate investigation of war crimes and those that commit these would and should be held accountable for these actions.

    It is noble of Secretary of State John Kerry to want to save the oceans of the world; I only wish he would start by saving Plum Island first. If, as Tip O'Neill once said, that all politics is local, Kerry could begin by shoring up the North Shore island and save all the beachfront shacks before the rising ocean washes everything out to sea. It may not be Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard, but Plum, just off Newbury and Newburyport, is as local as you can get.

Multiparty talks to end the war were to follow. But fire is yet to cease, though attacks have diminished in parts of the country. The lull in the half-decade-old civil war wasn’t enough, however, to launch the main task of the week. The United Nations was to start delivering humanitarian aid to civilians in...

They raped, tortured, burned, beheaded, crushed, and acidically-disolved their enemies while our leaders promised that they were being dealt with in the harshest possible way. We’d “contained” them, we’d “diminished” them, and - most importantly - we’d decimated their command and control capabilities. According to President Obama, the J.V. team is on the run.

    Secretary of State John Kerry took a shot at Donald Trump during his Friday commencement speech at Northeastern University, by saying no wall is big enough to keep dangerous terrorists out of the United States. "Many of you were in elementary school when you learned the toughest lesson of all on 9/11," he said. "There are no walls big enough to stop people from anywhere, tens of thousands of miles away, who are determined to take their own lives while they target others." "So I think that everything that we've lived and learn tells us that we will never come...

    U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told college graduates on Friday their diversity is “Donald Trump’s worst nightmare” and it’s their job to confront global issues ranging from terrorism to climate change.

In other words, you are Donald Trump’s worst nightmare.” […] A Department of State spokesman said Kerry’s comment about Trump was only a...

    in order for Kerry to get Syria and Russian to relax, they need to tell Hussein Obama's freedom fighter to stop attacking too: Washington and Moscow said on Monday they were working hard to extend a truce in Syria to Aleppo, the divided northern city where a sharp escalation of violence in recent weeks has left a ceasefire in tatters and torpedoed peace talks. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was in Geneva for meetings with other dignitaries to try to revive the two-month-old U.S. and Russia-sponsored cessation of hostilities, which quieted guns for the first time during the five-year...

    On April 11, John Kerry became the first Secretary of State to pay his respects to at Hiroshima’s memorial to those who died when the atomic bomb was dropped on that city on August 6, 1945. That event, and the dropping of a second atomic bomb on the city of Nagasaki on August 9, brought a victorious and rapid end to World War II, and a Japanese surrender 6 days after Nagasaki, saving potentially millions of casualties on both sides if the U.S. had been forced to invade the Japanese home islands. Kerry’s statement during the visit, as reported by...

It is provocative. It is dangerous. And under the rules of engagement, that could have been a shoot-down." He added that the US "is not going to be intimidated on
