John Kerry’s Anti-American State Department

The asylum is about to get a whole lot crazier with John Kerry as Secretary of State.

What are the biggest problems facing the United States according to our new Secretary of State? It’s not a nuclear Iran. It’s not the chaos in Syria and the Middle East. It’s not the ever-growing economic power of China or China flexing its muscles in the Pacific region.  It’s not the Too Big to Fail banks. It’s not the War on Terror or al Qaeda swarming over Africa. It’s not persistently high unemployment or the growing number of welfare recipients. It’s not th $3 trillion and soon to be $4 trillion piling up on the Federal Reserve’s balance sheet. It’s not the nearly $17 trillion  debt that is growing at over a trillion dollars per year. According to Mr. Secretary, the two greatest threats to the US are the House GOP and Climate Change.

WASHINGTON (AP) – Secretary of State John Kerry says the greatest challenge to U.S. foreign policy is not emerging China or Middle East instability. It’s Congress.

In a speech Wednesday at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Kerry cited the adage that “we can’t be strong in the world unless we are strong at home.” He called the budget impasse a threat.

Kerry said legislators need to avoid “senseless cuts.”

Otherwise, he said his credibility as a diplomat might be damaged.

Credibility??? If Mr. Kerry ever had any credibility, he lost it along with his honor during his brief visit to the Vietnam War many years ago. Maybe that is why in his first foreign policy speech since being confirmed he pretended to be Al Gore.

From the Weekly Standard:

“We as a nation must have the foresight and courage to make the investments necessary to safeguard the most sacred trust we keep for our children and grandchildren: an environment not ravaged by rising seas, deadly superstorms, devastating droughts, and the other hallmarks of a dramatically changing climate,” said Kerry, according to prepared remarks.

“And let’s face it – we are all in this one together. No nation can stand alone. We share nothing so completely as our planet. When we work with others – large and small – to develop and deploy the clean technologies that will power a new world, we’re also helping create new markets and new opportunities for America’s second-to-none innovators and entrepreneurs to succeed in the next great revolution.”

Kerry called for collective action to deal with this problem. “So let’s commit ourselves to doing the smart thing and the right thing and truly commit to tackling this challenge,” he said. “Because if we don’t rise to meet it, rising temperatures and rising sea levels will surely lead to rising costs down the road. If we waste this opportunity, it may be the only thing our generations are remembered for. We need to find the courage to leave a far different legacy.”

It looks like President Obama picked the right man to help him implement his policies of high energy cost and high unemployment and a shrinking middle class. The insanity  just went up a notch. That is what Americans unwittingly voted for. But, they also voted for a majority of Republicans in the House. The Republicans hold the perse strings. Do they have the guts too pull them tight? That’s what I think too.

Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

  1. As far as foreign policy, he has now said he looks to the u.n. to solve the middle east problems. Creative in all aspects! Well done Jim.

  2. All cabinet posts and economic advisors are picked with the assurance that they will do the bidding of the insider WH cadre – no other qualification is needed.

    There are few choices more unqualified for the position of Treasury Secretary than this guy Jack Lew who the WSJ called today, “Forrest Gump at Treasury”. The same goes for Kerry, Hagel, and the latest chair of WH Council of Economic Advisers, Alan Krueger. Krueger is a labor economist that is signing on to the increase of the minimum wage proposed by the President – that says it all – but if you need further reassurance as to his credentials, he was professor of the Woodrow Wilson School of economics at Princeton. Woodrow Wilson – the creator of the Progressive movement.

    What a team!

  3. I’m getting older, but I’m not really ancient at 51… I remember when a politician said the word “investment” what he was talking about was encouraging the private sector to rise to meet a challenge and find the best way to solve a problem. This fricking moron (Kerry) thinks that the government spending tax dollars on wind and solar and battery technology is going to solve the problem. They have ALREADY DECIDED that those things are the answers. New technology is starved for capital because it is clear that the government is tilting the playing field to wind and solar and batteries. Does it matter that they haven’t worked (ANYWHERE, in terms of supplying a lot of energy at reasonable cost) and that they remain financial losers requiring expensive subsidies (the investment that constantly calls for more investment)? Not to these (excuse me) pricks that are spending OUR money and not their own. (What would John Kerry possibly know about making and keeping his OWN money, let alone investing it?)

    They don’t understand that freeing the market, freeing the genius of invention, means that the government can’t already decide which tech we’re going with. Doing that stops investment in other alternatives. Some guy may be in his garage right now creating a perpetual motion generator (or something using so little energy to stay in motion that it is nearly perpetual) and that guy will not be able to find capital because government money and subsidies is all going to wind and solar and venture capitalists see the writing on the wall. “Is it solar powered?” they will ask. If the answer is no, the genius in his garage is screwed. And so are we. The government CLOSES DOWN options with their version of investment, they don’t open new ones. End of the game. It’s all about wind and solar and batteries.

    On the other thing… I wonder if people will ever wake up to that huge lie. I’m hoping that word getting out about the origins of the Sequester will help. It’s such an obvious lie, it’s political posturing that is so naked, that I can’t believe some Obama supporters won’t get peeled off and wonder how many other things he’s lying about.

    1. I read an article today about a Pew Reasearch poll. All the different factions of the Democratic base support strongly Obama’s policies. Yet, the majority feel thac economically the country is on the wrong track. They do not connect Obama’s policies to the economic stagnation. How maddening is that?

  4. The arrogance of any man who thinks that man can change the weather patterns really astounds me but that is the type of person we now have running the state department. Isn’t it nice to know he has his priorities straight? Ugh!
