Coddling Kerry: Did mean Israelis hurt his feelings?
New York Post ^ | John Podhoretz

Posted on 07/30/2014 2:51:42 PM PDT by right-wing agnostic

John Kerry fought in Vietnam, threw his medals away, served decades in the Senate, ran for president, did some windsurfing and then became secretary of state of the most powerful country on Earth. He’s a big boy. But there are those who seem to feel otherwise, that Kerry is a fragile and tender reed in need of delicate care — people who work for and with him. Not to mention Kerry himself. Over the course of the past year, on several occasions, Kerry and other staffers have taken to whining — not sure there’s a nicer word — over how unfairly he’s being written and talked about in Israel. In January, after Israel’s defense minister was twice quoted speaking disparagingly about Kerry’s peace-process efforts and his nuclear diplomacy with Iran, Kerry actually called Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to complain. This was an odd thing, given the relative power of Kerry and the relatively minor position of Moshe Ya’alon. Kerry could have brushed Yaalon’s words off as a giant brushes off a fly. But it was so hurtful to Kerry that he made sure the world knew about it. His spokesperson, Jen Psaki, said at a public briefing that Ya’alon’s “comments were not constructive.

There are no words to describe how demoralized I am from this Administration's hostility toward Israel. It is quite simple: Those who are not pro-Israel, ARE PRO-TERRORIST. Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, and the rest of the demonic agents that are (or were) part of this Administration have shown complete hostility toward our allies and weakness in the face of our enemies. Barack Obama has done everything he can to destabilize the United States to try to accomplish his goal of "fundamentally transforming America." John Kerry has proved to be a pussy who is afraid of his own shadow. I hope, but am not at all optimistic, that the American people wake up come November./rwa

Kerry fought in Vietnam? Who knew. He must have fought with his commanding officer because he was only in country for 25% of his tour of duty and his boat was in for repairs more than any other. Kerry injured himself to get his Purple hearts and traded other officers to get more. He has no feelings. He started calling Veterans baby killers and war criminals and terrorists lately. He is too much of an idiot to do anything right.

He also once talked in a haughty fake-British accent that for some reason he’s dropped over the years. He’s also had a face transplant right out of the French horror movie “Eyes Without a Face.”

John Kerry did not FIGHT in Vietnam, though he did spend some time in-country.

That myth is almost as bad as the one about Obama being a “law professor,” when he was, in fact, nothing but a graduate lecturer. In other words, he kept the seat warm for the real law professor, who was probably napping back in the office.

Kerry has had a chance to make good on his job & he blew it. Of course,to do the right things would probably not enhance his employment status in this administration.

Um...just keep the lights on in the room. I don’t know how old you are or what type of horror movies you like. This is a low-key foreign film which has a major creep factor. But if you’re looking for blood and gore this is not it. It’s also in black and white.

On Monday there came a tripartite barrage in Kerry’s defense — from Psaki, presidential assistant Tony Blinken...

Where was Winken and Nod?

Oh, then you’ll like this. I love Val Lewton/Jacques Tournier movies. I just went over to Amazon and could not find a bad review of Eyes Without a Face. It has tons of spoilers, though, so I wouldn’t go there if I was you. Keep the lights on and don’t watch this if you’re depressed or upset. I ran out of the room about a month ago when my husband put it on!

If I were Israeli as I’m American, I’d tell Lurch, and Barry, and the whole lot of them to do something that’s physically impossible for anybody who’s not double-jointed.

Are you kidding? Have you ever seen the damage RICE can ‘
do? Just ask John, he still carries some in his butt.

God has given America over to the reprobates,

Israel is at war, tensions are running as high as at any time in their history, people are being killed daily, innocent children and the elderly are in harms way and placed there purposely, lives are being upended in permanent and frightening ways, evil is on the move, the entire region is approaching the unthinkable and demonic forces are beginning to swirl about like a cloud of locusts,

And yet for this completely asinine arrogant vain botoxed selfish man, who being nothing more than a kindred servant of that unclean spirit inhabiting the white house, the most important topic for consideration is some self perceived slight against his deceived inept judgement.

Utterly sickening,

Pray that God rebukes this evil,

Pray for peace,

I REALLY hope that those who think we are approaching end times are incorrect. Things do not look good at present do they?

I do too,

And while I do believe that things are heating up and that time has the appearance at least of coming to the full in some very real sense and very soon, God is in the miracle business, that’s why we should all be on our knees praying,

Nineveh was 40 days from ground zero and look what he did, he gave them another century,

God can use a natural pause in scripture (like he did in Isaiah 61 where he stopped reading before he got to the word ‘vengeance’) and added another 2000 years, he is sovereign and he is in control,

Exactly. He did throw some medals over the fence for the TV cameras but they weren’t his medals. They were someone else’s.
