    RUSH: Now, Syria. Let me see if I can make sense of this for you. 'Cause what's happening in Syria, based on what we learned yesterday about Putin -- and what he said to the UN about us abandoning our role, our moral leadership there -- as best I have been able to assemble this, here is what's happening. Over the past few weeks we have learned that Russia is sending military planes and soldiers to Syria. We didn't like it. When asked about it by the United States, Russia said, "Mind your own business; it's none of your business....

    John Kerry played the same old card he always plays - Vietnam: I have to tell you, my friend, I've been, quote, attacked before - by people using real bullets, not words. This would be a pretty funny line from the characteristically tin-eared Kerry applied to almost anyone from the Belgian Deputy Tourism Minister on up. But it's especially hilarious directed at Mr Bennett, who's a veteran of two of Israel's toughest special-forces units and could undoubtedly kill the Secretary of State with his bare hands were he minded so to do.

    Despite having reservations on the transparency of the electoral process, the US said it is ready to engage directly with the Iranian Government led by its newly elected President moderate Hassan Rowhani with the hope that the new leader will honor international obligations. "We, along with our international partners, remain ready to engage directly with the Iranian government. We hope they will honor their international obligations to the rest of the world in order to reach a diplomatic solution that will fully address the international community's concerns about Iran's nuclear program," Secretary of State John Kerry said yesterday.
  • Report: John Kerry Cleared His Schedule to Discuss Arming Syrian Rebels

    Yahoo! News ^ | 6/9/13 | Abby Ohlheiser | The Atlantic Wire
    It looks like the U.S. government will give serious thought this week to arming Syrian rebel groups, days after Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces re-captured the key city of Qusair. Secretary of State John Kerry, according to an AP report, has pushed back his mideast trip this week because the White House is planning to discuss sending weapons to some rebel groups. Kerry was supposed to go to Israel and Palestine to hack away at a peace plan for the region. But, perhaps because Syria's situation became even more pressing this week, the Associated Press's sources say that reported trip...

    It’s always great to hear old radicals reminiscing about the time they helped undermine America. It’s even better when they have risen to become Secretary of State. With Kerry, America has its own version of Joschka Fischer. The problem is that America didn’t need a Joschka Fischer or a Joschka Kerry. Secretary of State John Kerry, speaking at the General Assembly of the Organization of American States in Guatemala on Wednesday, reminisced about his first trip to Latin America as a U.S. senator back in 1985: “I have been traveling, actually, to Latin America for decades now. I think the...

    Tuesday, June 04, 2013 Kerry and the Peace Idiots Ride Again Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog Few figures in American political life have been as consistently wrong as often as John Kerry. The former Senator bet on every Communist leader and Middle Eastern tyrant he could find only to watch the wheels of history roll over his mistakes. And now as Secretary of State, Kerry is at it again. In between peddling a Syrian peace process that no one but him believes in, he took a break to peddle the even more discredited peace process between...

    Secretary of State John Kerry claimed Monday that Israel’s failure to foster peace with the Palestinians fuels extremism and terrorism across the world in his address before the American Jewish Committee’s annual policy conference in Washington, D.C. World leaders “literally” discuss the issue in every meeting Kerry has, he told a largely Jewish audience. “Everywhere I go – literally – China, Japan, foreign ministers, presidents raise this issue,” Kerry said. “Young people ask me about this conflict and what they can do to help end it.” “In the last couple of weeks I had visits here from the foreign minister

    U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Monday issued a stark warning to Israel to resume long-stalled peace talks with the Palestinian Authority, saying that if efforts fail now they may never get another chance. "We are running out of time. We're running out of possibilities... If we do not succeed now, we may not get another chance," Kerry told a forum held by the American Jewish Community, according to the AFP news agency. Kerry’s warning came amid reports that he is planning to return to the Middle East region within days, for his fifth trip to Israel since he...

    “The clock is ticking,” U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry warned Iran on Friday, adding that Israel will do what is necessary to defend itself against the Islamic Republic's nuclear program. Speaking to reporters at a joint news conference with German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle, Kerry said that he is not optimistic that Iran's upcoming presidential election will result in any change in the country's nuclear ambitions. "I do not have high expectations that the election is going to change the fundamental calculus of Iran," Kerry said. "This is not a portfolio that is in the hands of a new...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama on Friday nominated Sen. John Kerry as his next secretary of state, elevating the longtime lawmaker and foreign policy expert to the top diplomatic job he had coveted. "He is not going to need a lot of on-the-job training," Obama said, standing alongside Kerry at the White House. "Few individuals know as many presidents and prime ministers or grasp our policies as firmly as John Kerry."

    Am in DC tonight with old network friends and fiends. The word in DC is that John Kerry is working the media HARD to try to get himself back in headlines. Kerry still wants very much to be Prez. He is promoting the idea that, politically, Obama is a "dead man walking." Kerry claims he can save the Dem party by running in the primaries to the LEFT of Obama.... and be elected in both the primaries and the general! Idiocy... and old political news hands agree!

"I would have been a good president," he said Wednesday on "Imus in the Morning." "Maybe even a great one." Kerry stopped short of agreeing with host Don Imus's assertion that a President Kerry would have been "better than the guy we have now." Kerry, who ran against incumbent George W. Bush in 2004, also touched on the current debt crisis facing the U.S. President Obama is not...

    Kerry blames himself for flap over yacht taxSaturday, July 31, 2010 THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BOSTON — Sen. John Kerry said he always intended to pay taxes in Massachusetts on his $7 million yacht but conceded he mishandled the public furor over his decision to dock the vessel in Rhode Island. “I don’t think I dealt with it fast enough, effectively enough. There’s nobody to blame but myself for that,” the Massachusetts Democrat told The Boston Globe for Friday’s editions. Kerry added that he did nothing legally wrong. Kerry moved to end the controversy this week by saying he would write...

    The saga of Senator John Kerry's $ 7 million sailing yacht tied up on the Newport waterfront in the tax haven of Rhode Island proved again how adept Democrats are at spending other people's money. This time the $7 million was presumably spent from his wife's inherited fortune. But the larger story here isn't about tax havens. And it isn't about hypocrisy. And it's far less about trophy wives with trust funds. It's not even about being a lifelong leech working in government jobs sucking the blood out of beleaguered taxpayers. It's about the increasing distance and disconnects between the...

    This is rich. Or should I say for the rich, whom John Kerry likes to denigrate at every turn. After running on eliminating outsourcing and abolishing tax havens, we have this: "Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry is docking his family's new $7 million yacht in neighboring Rhode Island, allowing him to avoid paying roughly $500,000 in taxes to the cash-strapped Bay State. If the "Isabel" were kept at the 2008 Democratic presidential nominee's summer vacation home on Nantucket, or in Boston Harbor near his city residence, he would be liable for $437,500 in one-time sales tax. He would also have to...
