Senate Confirms John Kerry as Sec of State (And the three repubs that voted against him)

"Voting against Kerry were three Republicans — Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma and John Cornyn and Ted Cruz of Texas"

(Excerpt) Read more at theblaze.com ...

KEYWORDS: hanoijohn; johnkerry; kerry; liedtocongress; nakedtreason; traitor; vietnamwar
These are only three republican senators that are worth voting for. The others can go straight to hell. Confirming a lying ass, treasonous traitor to his country as Sec of State is about as bad as it gets. None of the republicans that voted for him have an ounce of honor or integrity.

Cornyn surprises me. Other times, he is just your typical quisling RINO.

He voted FOR confirming an openly homosexual activist federal judge.

Ted Cruz is fast becoming my favorite politician.

Today Levin called Marco Rubio 'Mr Smith' as in Mr Smith Goes to Washington. Cruz is far more deserving of the compliment.

Cornyn is up for re-election in 2014. He needed the cover.

Cornyn sees the writing on the wall.

He better! If he does any RINO moves from now on he’s going to get dumped for a Cruz Jr.

Cruz is landing on his feet and ready to kick some liberal butt.

“Cornyn is up for re-election in 2014. He needed the cover.”

Exactly, there are some good Tea Party Republicans that are gearing up to take him on in the Primary. He knows it’s time to start acting like a conservative...again.

It’s cover. He’s up for election in 2014. Would suspect he made a deal with the “boys” and he’ll support one of their other crazy schemes when his vote is needed in order for it to pass.

I would also hope that we can continue to count on Cruz to maintain his posture as a true Conservative and vote accordingly. That, in and of itself, may create some problems for Cornyn that he didn’t have when Kay Bailey - Cornyn’s RINO sidekick - was serving.

Will he travel from crisis to crisis in a Swift Boat? If so maybe he can earn three purple hearts and go home and leave us alone. I can hear him start every meeting with foreign dignitaries with “ You must listen to me because I served in Vietnam and got three purple hearts”.

His upcoming election and our new senator, Ted Cruz, are forcing Cornyn to take his once-every-four-year lurch to the right.

I’m not surprised. Apparently Kerry is ‘good friends’ with everyone in the senate.

There is an upside. This is just part of Obama’s second term ‘B-team’, who will be even more inept and clownish than his A-team. Kerry is a failure, and will embarrass the administration in a way Clinton never could. He’ll probably get five ambassadors killed, along with Biden on an overseas trip. How could the media ignore that?

I guess it doesn’t matter if Rubio voted for Kerry’s nomination or not. There were enough votes to confirm him. All of obama’s picks are worthless, lying, commies.

Rubio is a degenerate twerp busy body lying lawyer who never held a real job in his life.

Actually heard him say "undocumented worker" on the 10 minutes of the 3 hour Limbaugh show that isn't a collection of continuous commercials for ridiculous products and services nobody with half a brain would purchase.

FUMR.

Rubio’s vote along with the other Republicans makes every difference in the world. The Republican Party effectively committed suicide today with its aiding and abetting the appointment of a traitor to the office of the Secretary of State. This vote followed so many other key votes like the failure to defund Obamacare in the House of Representatives, failure to vacate the court order permitting Democrat vote fraud and theft of elections, copying of the NAZI Weapons Acts that lead to the worst genocides in human history, and so much more. The appointment of a traitor amounts to Ceasar’s illegal crossing of the Rubicon River and establishment of the Roman Empire with the overthrow of the Roman Republic. Rubio could have voted in support of the Constitution as did Senator Inhofe. Rubio failed the test miserably.

Those FBI files Mr. Livingston secured for the Clintons are still paying dividends!

Of course if the Republican elite wasn’t guilty of something they could not be blackmailed!
One thing they can not be accused of is ridgidly holding to principles or having a backbone.

That ANY Republican voted for this wimp shows the national party has surrendered to the socialists.

We in the trenches have been betrayed.

Be that as it may - it just doesn’t seem to matter any more, does it? This country has gone to he** in a handbasket with the 2008 election and we continue on that slippery slope. Who is going to stop it? The Republicans? The electorate? The Supreme Court?

So, I guess we’ll nitpick everyone who decides to run in the 2016 election - like vultures on a carcass, until we end up with another commie in the office of president.

It has taken the Marxists-socialists-Communists-Progressives-oxymorons a couple of centuries or longer to seize their current limited control and influence, so no one has any good reason to think this problem has a quick and easy fix. Nonetheless, true conservatives have it within their power to halt and severely rollback much of those encroachments upon the constitutional republic by returning to the basics of local and even personal government by the basics of parliamentary law. The 2nd, 1st, and 9th Amendments to the Constitution are good starting points. To do so, however, is for conservatives to agree to disagree on a broad array of political and social issues long enough to resolutely and irresistably reassert the few Constitutional civil rights fundamental to the survival of the Constitutional Republic and removal from power those who would subvert and extinguish the Constitution and rule of law.

The Republican Party has had decades to get its act together, and it has failed miserably and spectacularly. Although it may be salvageable someday, the days upon which it surrendered vo massive vote fraud and confirmed traitors and subversives to the state and Federal offices with impunity, the Republican Party effectively served as a sham or even captive party in furtherence of the Democrat-Marxist-socialist-communist-Progressive agenda.

To rollback the political and social assault will require the people of each precinct, coummnity, and county to start meeting with each other to inform themselves about the threats they face and determine what precinct, community, and county officials and organizations must be removed from authority to restore constitutional rule of law. This means reformation of local Republican Party precinct and county organizations and/or their replacemeent by a new third party organizations in collaboration on the Constitutional issues.

This means the removal of Sheriffs who fail to honor their oaths to protect and defeend the Constitution, 2nd Amendment, 9th Amendment, and 1st Amendment, among others. This means bringing about the impeachment and removal of non-compliant judiciary. U.S. Citizens possess lawful powers they don’t even realize exist for their benefit. It is long past time for them to rapidly learn and help each other to effectively exercise those powers effectively and safely.

"I guess it doesn’t matter if Rubio voted for Kerry’s nomination.."

Knowing that the beltway club members would support him validates that to some extent. But, I would expect Rubio to stand up for the country and especially those of us who've served. John Kerry is a deceitful traitor through and through. He should be tried, not honored. Marco Rubio would do himself good to learn a little about contemporary American history. Apparently, he'd vote to make Bill Ayers Secretary of Education because John McCain said so. I had a lot of faith in him, but it's slipping.

Help!! I know Kerry “signed” his SF-180 but did he ever submit it and release ALL of his military records? “The devil is in the details.” In 2005 Kerry claimed he signed the SF-180 in 2005 but by the middle of 2006 his military records still were not released. Did the Senate confirm a “traitor” given amnesty as a political perk by President Carter? Why haven’t any of our Senators brought this issue up?

Can’t find a good copy of his DD 214. He did doctor it though, it apparently used to say “Silver Star with V Device”,
which is bogus because any Silver Star is for combat and there is no V device ever on the medal. I would suspect Kerry doctored it himself. He’s a lying idiot and a legend in his own mind.
