    "This is one of our chief challenges today, is to manage information and to do it in a way that average folks at home can know what's real and what isn't, what's true, what's false, and try to build consensus around a common set of understandings," Kerry said during the Mediterranean Dialogues Conference in Rome. "Technology has brought the world closer, yes; but it's also enabled bigots and demagogues to spread messages of divisiveness and hate with the click of a button, with the push of a finger." . . . "There are some truths, folks. Hard sometimes for people...

    Washington (AFP) – US Secretary of State John Kerry warned Tuesday that he “will not go quietly into the night” as President-elect Donald Trump’s incoming administration prepares to shake up US foreign policy. Addressing an association of women diplomats, Kerry said he would help ensure a smooth handover of power in his department but would continue to argue for environmental protection, foreign aid and strong alliances. “We’re going to have one hell of a debate over the next few years, I can assure you, and I can promise you this… I am not going to go quietly into the night,”...

    MARRAKECH, Morocco (AP) — U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry made a stirring appeal Wednesday to all countries — including his own — to press ahead with the fight against climate change, saying a failure to do so would be a "betrayal of devastating consequences." Without mentioning Donald Trump by name, Kerry's speech at the U.N. climate talks was partly aimed at the Republican president-elect who has called global warming a "hoax" and has pledged to "cancel" the Paris deal limiting greenhouse gas emissions.

    (CNSNews.com) – Secretary of State John Kerry has hinted that he may be involved in one final push on the Israeli-Palestinian issue, amid growing speculation – and concern among Israel supporters – that President Obama may use the period between next week’s election and the end of his administration to break the deadlock. The Wall Street Journal reported on Monday that according to administration sources, “the White House has asked the State Department to develop an options menu for the president’s final weeks.” It said the possibilities could include supporting – or not vetoing – a U.N.

    The secretary of state spends too much time in a world of his own making. There’s an old theory that extensive air travel inflicts physical injury and distorts cognitive thinking. Airline stewardesses of a previous time said the introduction of the jetliner for the old propellers-and-internal engines disrupted their menstrual cycles. Life is dangerous in the clouds. Perhaps all his flying about is what disrupted Secretary of State John Kerry’s ability to think coherently. He told a group of University of Chicago political science students the other day that President Obama’s foreign policies have been a smashing success. The president’s...

    The Obama administration is facing criticism and ridicule after a bizarre outburst by the John Kerry-led State Department urging Hungarian authorities to prop up a defunct Communist Party propaganda organ. In an official statement, the Obama administration, which recently attacked media diversity in the United States, echoed discredited conspiracy theories pushed by communists and called on anti-communist Hungarian officials to prop up the bankrupt newspaper — supposedly to preserve “media pluralism.” But the ownership of the far-left paper, known as Nepszabadsag, wants to shut it down, citing growing financial losses and plunging circulation figures. It was not immediately clear...

    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.

In reading through them, one gets the impression that if Berger was not an architect of the Iranian nuclear deal, he was at least a major salesman. Hillary had good cause to praise Berger. In the run-up to the 2004 9/11 hearings, Berger taught Hillary by example...

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...
