Forget Iraq, John Kerry Wants You Focused on Climate Change

There must be a lot of money invested in this issue, with the expectation of a big payoff. I noted that, in the midst of the Ukraine meltdown that seems to be the start of a new Cold War, John Kerry clearly demonstrated his priorities: use all State Department assets to spread fear and paranoia about alleged global warming in every corner of the globe. He used militant rhetoric about “our brave men and women on the front lines,” not to describe Ukraine or any other place of conflict, but to Read more […]

John Kerry’s Claim that 97% of “the World’s Scientists” Believe in Manmade Climate Change is a Lie

From the Wall Street Journal: Last week Secretary of State John Kerry warned graduating students at Boston College of the “crippling consequences” of climate change. “Ninety-seven percent of the world’s scientists,” he added, “tell us this is urgent.” Where did Mr. Kerry get the 97% figure? Perhaps from his boss, President Obama, who tweeted on May 16 that “Ninety-seven percent of scientists agree: #climate change is real, man-made and dangerous.” Or maybe from NASA, which posted (in more measured Read more […]

Is Canada A Holdout In the Global Warming Stampede?

Canada did not send any officials to the Carbon Expo 14, an annual conference for our bureaucrats to get together and plan ways to regulate the world in order to “save” it. By itself, Canada’s absence from the Expo would not mean too much. The U.S. also decided not to send any officials. But that wasn’t because the government is not “concerned” about impoverishing us saving the planet. Rather, it was because we are too important to show up with the little people. Like the voice of Read more […]

We’ll Only Risk Destroying Our Economy & Killing Millions in the Developing World; So John Kerry Wants to Do It

Gosh, it’s so great to have the power to stand up and make bogus claims the supine press will report without any vetting, and clueless students will largely swallow without a hint of questioning. From the Weekly Standard: “Kerry: If We’re Wrong on Climate Change, ‘What’s the Worst That Can Happen?’” Secretary of State John Kerry did not shy away from pejorative language when addressing “climate change” in his commencement speech at Boston College on Monday.  Kerry referred to those skeptical Read more […]

John Kerry Thinks America Should Save the World from the Bible

In fairness to the Secretary of State, I’m sure he would hasten to add that he wants the United States to liberate the world from the Koran as well. Or maybe he wouldn’t. Not sure. As the Weekly Standard reported, Kerry is traveling through Africa and said the following in Ethiopia: This is a time here in Africa where there are a number of different cross-currents of modernity that are coming together to make things even more challenging. Some people believe that people ought to be able to Read more […]

A Reporter Did His Job, So He Was Attacked by the Media

While I’m not usually happy with the Daily Beast, I’m very glad they allowed Josh Rogin to defend himself at their website. It really doesn’t matter what the issue is, the First Amendment becomes a dead letter if journalists are not able and willing to get information to the public that the sources of that information do not want the public to know. As George Orwell said, “Journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed: everything else is public relations.” Ten years ago, Read more […]

Benghazi Gets Under Democrats’ Skins

Could Democrats have a worse poker face? With everyone from Jay Carney to Nancy Pelosi running around in the past few days saying no one should be talking about Benghazi, it’s clear that’s exactly what this nation needs to talk about. An email released earlier this week through a Freedom of Information Act is a smoking gun revealing that the Obama Administration lied about the reasons behind Benghazi and covered up because of the rapidly approaching 2012 presidential election. And another memo Read more […]

The Fake Story About Jews Being Required to Register in Ukraine

Last night I saw a spate of headlines that indicated Jews in a Ukraine city located in the more pro-Russian region had been ordered to register. Here was how the Washington Times began its story. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Thursday that Jews in the Ukrainian city of Donetsk were recently given notices instructing them to officially identify themselves as Jews. “In the year 2014, after all of the miles traveled and all of the journey of history, this is not just intolerable, it’s Read more […]

Just How Close Are We to World War III?

I asked last year, “Are we really committed to war against China over some disputed islands.” The latest answer from Yahoo News is “yes, we are.” Tokyo has reportedly ordered its forces to destroy any North Korean ballistic missiles that pass through its airspace. Hagel’s announcement follows the deployment of a second early warning US radar to Japan, P-8 maritime surveillance aircraft and plans to bring unmanned Global Hawk drones to the country. Although Hagel said the US ships were Read more […]

Another International Crisis, Another Line in the Sand

Hang on to your bar stools, the Obama Administration is talking tough again. Secretary of State John Kerry warned Moscow of “serious” repercussions if weekend negotiations on the fate of Ukraine don’t yield some positive results. And he means it. Really. Really, really. Aw, c’mon stop laughing. The Obama Administration has lost virtually all international credibility at this point. Whenever Kerry or President Obama tries to play John Wayne, Russian President Vladimir Putin just Read more […]

Ketchup Gives Us A Window Into the Kleptocracy

From BBC.com: Former Heinz chief executive William Johnson received $110.5m (£66.1m) for the final eight months of 2013, the food firm disclosed in a filing to US regulators. Current boss Bernardo Hees, who joined the firm in June, received $9.2m. Mr Hees has cut more than 3,400 positions and closed factories in an effort to boost profits. Heinz was bought by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway and 3G Capital for $28bn in February 2013. The firm, whose products include ketchup, baked beans, Read more […]

John Kerry Calls On All U.S. Diplomats As “Our Brave Men & Women On The Front Lines.” You’ll Never Guess Why.

The brinksmanship going on between Russian and the United States right now is frightening. This isn’t Iraq or Afghanistan. We’re dealing with a nuclear power. So I’m not surprised that John Kerry felt he needed to give out, as Yahoo News reports, “his first department-wide policy guidance statement since taking office.” I am sure all the ambassadors of the United States government need to be focused and active in working toward a resolution to this crisis. So what did Kerry tell them? According Read more […]
