- John Kerry in 2004: George Bush is bad because he rushed to war without letting UN Inspectors finish their jobs and he was wrong for striking Iraq without a broad and deep coalition of allies joining the action!!
- John Kerry in 2013: Barack Obama is awesome and doesn't need to wait for UN inspectors to finish their job in Syria because their investigation "can’t tell us anything . . . that we don’t already know" and Obama is displaying unique and strong leadership by striking Syria with no international coalition because it “will ensure that the United States of America makes our own decisions on our own timelines based on our values and our interests,” unconstrained by other countries’ opinions.
Yesterday, the White House released a photo of the Child King and his court inside the situation room and, supposedly, discussing the overthrow of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.
A CBS News reporter noticed the very curious absence of the US Secretary of State, John Kerry, from the gaggle on sycophants bumbling around the table and went looking for him and, maybe not so surprisingly, found him on his wife’s yacht.
When the State Department was asked about where Kerry was, they reacted in the typical Obama Administration fashion….they lied.
But the State Department said Kerry was not aboard a boat on Wednesday and has spent the day working the phones on Egypt. “Since his plane touched down in Washington at 4 a.m., Secretary Kerry was working all day and on the phone dealing with the crisis in Egypt,” spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.
Unfortunately for them, another reporter had the common sense to visit the playground of the well-off and took a picture of Kerry working the State Department hotline…and when I say ‘State Department hotline’ I mean playing on his yacht.
Again, in using the typical Obama Playbook when caught in an “oops”…and when I say ‘oops’ I mean a lie…the State Department responded by saying, “oh…well…uh…okay. Yeah, he was on his yacht but only ‘briefly’.”
Where Kerry was isn’t so important. But the fact that the State Department lies so facilely, and has absolutely no compunction about doing so, does matter.
Of course, “briefly” is another way, again of trying to minimize, when it would appear it was not “brief” at all.
It is why they believe they can get away with lying over matters of great significance, like Benghazi.
But that was yesterday. Today is a new day and, you’d think, our leaders would learn from their mistakes and turn their attention to the matters that they get paid to pay attention to.
Not so much when it comes to people who work for the Obama Administration.
Mosheh, a CBS Producer, saw Kerry on the boat again today.
Likely, it was only “briefly” and doubtless, he is working on Egypt as he steers the boat his wife inherited from her dead husband.
Hamas Pushing For Stricter Sharia Law in Gaza, Advocates For The Murder Of Gays, Marriage For Children And Treating Kids as Young As 10 as Adults…
What could go wrong?
Hamas is lobbying for a stricter enforcement of Islamic law in Gaza – including provisions to cut off the hands of thieves, and execution of individuals who cheat on their spouses. A report in the Al-Hayat dailynewspaper said that Hamas expects the new regulations to take effect in the coming months, after introduction of the legislation in the PA parliament.
Existing laws mete out the death penalty to individuals convicted of murder, spying, homosexuality, or selling land to Jews. The new legislation will expand the crimes for which individuals can be executed to include disloyalty to a spouse – having sexual relations outside the context of marriage. Other provisions of the law include chopping off the right hand of a thief (along with at least a seven year jail sentence), and lashes for a large number of “crimes,” including drinking alcoholic beverages and gambling. All the punishments are derived from sharia, Islamic law.
In addition, girls age 15 will be able to decide to marry on their own, without requiring permission from their parents. Individuals age ten and over are considered adults under the new legislation, and are subject to the full force of the law for offenses.
Isn’t this just peaceful and so worthy of respect? Let’s keep laws that allow the government to murder gay people and people who sell land to Jews. What a tolerant, freedom of religion loving group of misunderstood, victimized “Palestinians”.
But on the plus side, at least little girls, who would be too young to drive in the US, can now marry and do the dirty with the 50 year-old men who buy them from their families now.
And who hasn’t said that 10 year-old kids should receive the same punishment as an adult? I mean, it’s not like they aren’t completely mentally developed and are totally aware of the consequences of their actions. So what if he only shoplifted a Snicker’s bar from the local bazaar…off with his hand!!!
These people and the idiots who support them are animals.
Barack Obama in a speech shortly after the Benghazi attack in which he vowed to bring the terrorists “to justice”.
In unrelated news: Two years later, new reports indicate:
The Ansar al Sharia Brigade, the Islamist terror group linked to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, continues to operate freely in that Libyan city, according to U.S. military officials.
The group remains active in the Mediterranean port city, operating patrols and checkpoints, and earlier this year reached an agreement with other Islamist groups allowing it to operate openly, said military officials familiar with intelligence reports from North Africa.
So much for ‘bringing those folks to justice”. But then, that vow did come from Obama’s mouth so we should have known it was a lie from the get-go.
From Daily Beast:
The volatile country, still reeling after the Benghazi attack and several recent bombings, has become a magnet for al Qaeda terrorists determined to sow instability in the region.
“Libya has become AQIM’s headquarters,” says the intelligence source, adding that in just the last few weeks three new al Qaeda camps have opened in southern Libya.
In his usual short-sightedness, Obama was part of the circumstances that have led to a resurgence of al-Qaeda and has not only allowed, but also supported, the cause of radical Islam within the Middle East.
On March 15, 2011, Obama took the podium and announced to the world that he had authorized US Military action in Libya.
“Today I authorized the armed forces of the United States to begin a limited military action in Libya,” Obama. “That action has now begun.”
A few months later, Hillary Clinton found it to be pretty hilarious when she received word that the Libyan dictator, Muammar Qaddafi, had been beaten to death and drug through the streets.
"We came, we saw, he died," she laughed when told of news reports of Qaddafi’s death by an aide in between formal interviews.
And what was the result of their chuckle-worthy actions? The murder of four Americans in Benghazi and the establishment of terror training camps in a previously somewhat secure country and the return of al-Qaeda.
Just like the return of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, who has spawned and supports terror organization to this date, Obama has not only supported but facilitated the return of vocal enemies of America and, even now, is planning on arming known terrorists, and lay the groundwork for future terror training facilities and bases of operations in Syria.
Providing aid and comfort to our enemies is no longer treasonous under the Obama administration but is, instead, well practiced policy.
ICE Agents Forced To Release Illegal Alien Criminals Back Onto American Streets If They Claim To Be “Dreamers”….
Possible future votes trump American citizen’s safety according to the Obama administration.
From The Daily Caller:
In part three of three of his six-part interview with The Daily Caller, National ICE Council president Chris Crane explained what President Obama’s actions on immigration and blind eye to illegal immigration has made it nearly impossible for ICE agents to enforce the law.
“We can’t have Presidents of the United States picking and choosing which laws will and will not be enforced.” Crane said.
Crane went on to explain how President Obama’s de facto repeal of immigration enforcement has led to serious and dangerous criminals being set free. “What the Obama Administration has ICE agents now doing is we now go into jails and prisons looking for illegal aliens inside of those facilities who have committed and been convicted of crimes. So we apply the Dream Act not to kids, in schools, but to adult inmates and have to ask them basically ‘Do you qualify for President Obama’s Dream Act?’ When they tell us ‘Yes we qualify’ we can’t even require them to give us any kind of proof, a transcript, or anything like that. We can’t detain them for investigation to substantiate the claims, we simply have to release them to the street. They walk out the back door of the jail as ‘Dreamers.’ There is nothing we can do about that.”
While it should be no surprise to anyone who has been following the Benghazi fiasco, this should be another indicator that Obama and his crew do not give two licks for the safety of the American people. Just like Obama left four Americans to be murdered in Libya for no apparent reason other than it would contradict his ‘al-Qaeda is on their heels” statement and cost him votes during the 2012 election, Obama is willing to jeopardize the safety of Americans for no reason other than generating votes and a positive image in the Hispanic community.
Besides his habit of choosing what laws he will enforce, while ignoring others that will not benefit him during elections, he is now willing to release convicted criminals back out on the streets…even though those criminals are here illegally to begin with.
But he has ‘swag’ and hangs with Jay-Z so it’s all good, I guess.
…You know, to make sure everyone “pays their fair share”.
Because so many 1%ers do their shopping online.
