OUR FRIENDSHIP IS NOT VALUED AND OUR EMITY IS NOT FEARED: OBAMA’S PRESIDENTIAL LEGACY
I am writing about John Kerry, who should now be forever known as “Despicable Me;” his recent long, boring and lying address to the country, attempting to support Obama’s terrible decision to abstain in the United Nations vote condemning Israel, is just the latest example of Kerry’s treachery.
In the past I have written my beliefs on just what a dreadful judgment promoting Kerry to be Secretary of State was for our country, for Obama not so much. Kerry was always Obama’s first choice for Secretary of State, but Obama didn’t have the balls to fight the Clintons shortly after his first election.
Hillary Clinton desperately needed international political experience on her resume to help insure her election as the first female president of the United States. Obama submitted to the Clinton’s, she became Secretary of State, Gee how did that work out? But make no mistake; Kerry was always the man Obama desired. With Kerry’s record of promoting anti-American values, he was just the man Obama needed in that critical position.
John Kerry has been a dangerous man in a position of great power. I wrote in October 2013, “John Kerry will turn out to be an appalling choice for Secretary of State. Kerry will assist Obama in every way he can to put in place dangerous and sinister ideological decisions around the world that will enhance the Obama agenda to weaken and endanger our country.” (Iran just might fit that bill, ya think?)
It is not just my belief that John Kerry is a very flawed man; here is the opinion of Kerry from Kerry’s Naval Commander in Viet Nam. This statement was made during Kerry’s presidential run against Bush; a rather important opinion at that juncture of time from a man that knew Kerry well.
“I do not believe John Kerry is fit to be Commander in Chief of the armed forces of the United States. This is not a political issue. It is a matter of his judgement, truthfulness, reliability, loyalty and trust – all absolute tenets of command.” Rear Admiral Roy F. Hoffman, United States Navy.
I have never in all my 28 years of military service heard any commander speak of anyone who served under their commands in such a ruthlessly negative manner. Leaders at this high echelon of command either commend those who have served under them or just say nothing at all about those whom they feel have not been able to meet the high standard of service demanded. Admiral Hoffman’s description of Kerry represents his anger and disgust for a man who has betrayed his service and those brave Americans who served with him.
Before you read the following paragraph, you may want to have some anti-nausea medication handy. Here is Kerry’s infamous and shameful speech to the Senate Foreign Relations committee, where he lied about his fellow American warriors by excerpting information from a Soviet ant-American disinformation document (more on that later).
]]]]Here is John Kerry’s “Winter Solider Speech” to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. His lying speech about American armed forces in Viet Nam:
“They told stories at times they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in a fashion reminiscent of Genghis Kahn, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks and generally ravaged the countryside of South Viet Nam in addition to the normal ravages of war and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country.”
Here is what a famous Man, Lt. General William Boykin, a founder and original member of the U.S. Army’s elite Delta Force had to say about Kerry’s testimony:
“Kerry never saw those things. He was only perpetuating the myth the far left needed to convince America that our young men and women who served in Viet Nam committed barbaric acts. It was all a ploy to draw attention to HIMSELF FOR POLITICAL PURPOSES AND IT WORKED. It is long past time for John Kerry to come clean and apologize for the lies he told.”
To this day Kerry never has. With those lying comments Kerry disgraced himself, betrayed his service, his country and all of us who served, fought and died in the Viet Nam conflict. Kerry’s many comments about his service in Viet Nam give a clue as to why almost all of the men who served with him detest him. (Read Chapter 6 of the book, “Unfit for Command” written by men in Kerry’s Naval unit in Viet Nam)
To make matters much worse for Kerry, several years later some truth came out that parts of Kerry’s winter solider speech were plagiarized from a Soviet disinformation publication about U.S. forces in Viet Nam.
Here is what Lt. General Ion Mihal Pacepa, a man who actually worked on KGB disinformation operations during the Viet Name war under the then KGB chief Yuri Andropov, wrote about Kerry’s testimony. “Although Kerry never fully revealed the source of his accusations, I recognized them as being part of the product of a KGB disinformation operation I worked on.” So a large portion of Kerry’s accusations came from a document manufactured for a Soviet disinformation campaign written to disparage troops in the United States Armed Forces, isn’t that just precious?
John Kerry continued to demonstrate his shallow understanding of America and what America means. Prior to his Senate election, Kerry put on his ludicrous throwing his medals away act. Playing to the political far left, trying to curry favor with the ant-war groups by supposedly throwing his medals over the White House fence with T.V. cameras and an anti-war crowd in place. It was intended to make him look of great consequence to that movement, but was later revealed to be a phony act when it was found out the medals he threw away were not his medals but some he must have purchased somewhere for that P.R. event. What a guy.
Probably only in the People’s Democratic Republic of Massachusetts could John Kerry’s bull spit political nonsense be accepted without question and he then be elected to our Senate, well that and with his wife’s ketchup money (she is a daughter of the Hinez family).
John Kerry is just the kind of man Obama needed as Secretary of State. Kerry had long ago sold his soul for the rewards of a corrupt and dangerous ideology. He is a corrupt man right down to his fancy French silk underwear, ok just kidding about the underwear, don’t know anything about that and don’t want to.
Obama needed a man who would go along with and help put into play Obama’s agenda to Fundamentally Transform America which we now know was just code to do as much damage to traditional America and it values as possible while Obama had to power to do so. John Kerry worked has out just fine.
Kerry’s resume since becoming Secretary of State is a series of blunders, Syria, betraying allies (Israel V.S. Palestinians), abandoning countries who could have assisted our efforts against Islamic terror, (Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, the Kurds) our miserable lack of effort in the Ukraine and for his biggest disaster, he was a crucial leader in the IRAN nuclear betrayal.
We now have seen Obama and Kerry’s insidious treaty (on the down low) that will allow the Ayatollahs, who never have stopped shouting their “Death to America” creed, to succeed in their quest to manufacture and deploy nuclear weapons.
John Kerry and Israel, June 5th 2013:
On his first trip to Israel, Kerry landed in Tel Aviv with the over confidence and the naiveté of a show-off and a braggart. He blew into Israel speaking of a grandiose, “ground breaking plan.” Kerry’s words, “I have a plan that is bigger, bolder and more ambitious than anything proposed since Oslo more than 20 years ago, it will be enormously powerful and different from anything we’ve ever seen before.” Wow, that sounds like Kerry was going to bring peace to Israel and the Palestinians in like maybe next week. No one could have sounded more enthusiastic about himself and this trip than, well John Kerry.
What Kerry was really trying to do was sell his “ground breaking 4 billion dollar give away plan (read bribe) to President Abba’s P.A./Fatah government to start peace negotiations with Israel to make Obama/Kerry look good. Those negotiations had broken down in 2009 after Obama’s ridiculous “1967 borders speech.”
Here was Abba’s reply, “The Palestinian leadership will not accept economic benefits.” “We will not accept that the economy is the primary and sole component.” “The economy is only a part of a political framework that will ensure the creation of a Palestinian state based on the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital and the rights of refugees as a reference to a political solution (so much for the bribe Kerry)”.
In other words, the same P.A./Fatah position Abbas had demanded after Obama’s stupid, destructive 1967 borders speech in2009; the same position Israel had rejected with not only a no, but a hell no reply.
Of course given the fact that this is the Middle East, there was a big pile of money involved and Abbas is known to have some very warm relationships with bankers in Switzerland, maybe some of that 4 billion is now residing the Abbas account in Zurich.
In addition we had Obama’s desperate need to have something, anything that might be labeled an international success happen. However Obama/Kerry failed to see any success in there ridiculous bribe ploy.
Abbas told Kerry Israel must accept the 1967 borders and the right of return for all the Palestinians that left in 1949 (there was no recognized political group of people called “Palestinians” in the Middle East when Israel was declared a State). Abbas went on, if Israel did not accept those conditions there will be no negotiations.
But Obama and Kerry put tremendous pressure on Israel and Israel had to agree to release some very bad people they had imprisoned for terror and murder in order to get Obama/Kerry off their back at that time. But think about it, Israel releasing those Jihadists who had murdered Israelis would be like the U.S. releasing violent jihadists from Gitmo who then would attack us again, oh pardon me, Obama continues to do just that, funny how that works; thank God its 2017 and both Obama and Kerry are on their way into the dust bin of history.
The reality is that Secretary of State Kerry was in the Middle East beating the dead horse of a failed “comprehensive Middle East peace initiative.” It didn’t stand a chance of success then because of the Islamists stated ethos of wiping Israel off the map and their oft spoken desire to kill every Israeli. Then of course there is Israel’s lack of desire to commit suicide. Until most of the Muslim countries in the Middle East pledge to agree that Israel is a recognized state there will be no agreement.
Seeing his “Peace Plan” going down the drain, and now looking the fool, Kerry said “it is now or never for the Israelis and Palestinians to reach agreement on a two-state solution. Interestingly; neither Israel nor Palestine officials had any idea what Kerry was bloviating about? Little wonder that a high Israeli official said “Kerry looks and sounds like a naïve and ham-handed diplomat.” The simple fact is for almost a century it has been obvious that Israel and Palestinian interests are diametrically opposed. Nothing has change in that metric. The United States has the choice, do we support Israel or the Jihadists. Under Obama it was the latter, under Trump it will be Israel once more.
Now fast forward to the last abomination of the Obama/Kerry reign. Obama’s decision to allow the U.N. vote to betray the best ally we have in the Middle East and actually the world, Israel. The fact that Obama continues to feed us and the world his continuous babble of misinformation, disinformation, half-truths and dammed lies should be no surprise, he has done so for the last 8 years on everything from Obama Care to the U.N. vote. Then we had to have the spectacle of John Kerry getting up in front of the country and droning on for an hour and a half with the same misinformation, disinformation, and half-truths and dammed lies. Here is a small review of his embarrassing monologue:
• According to Kerry the “Palestinians” launch terror attacks against Israel only because the Israelis are building new housing. Really, as many of us seem to recall, the PLO, Hamas, Fatah, Iran to name just a few, has been calling for the complete destruction of the state of Israel and the death of all Jews for decades. Since the birth of the State of Israel in 1949, Jihadists, to their core, have always been terrorists who are at war with any state or society that will not submit to the barbarous form of Islam and nothing will ever change that.
• Kerry, “If the choice is one state, Israel can either be Jewish or Democratic, it cannot be both. My God one would have thought the even Kerry must understand that statement was claptrap and would make him appear irrational. Israel is the only state in the Middle East that grants citizenship to Palestinians. Jordan is the state that should be and was formed to give Palestinians a “Home Land.” But the Muslim government of Jordan will not give citizenship to any residents of Gaza or the West Bank. Jordan will not allow those people, “Palestinians,” to immigrate into Jordan. And guess what neither will any other Muslim state the Middle East misinformation, half-truths and dammed lies. “No American administration has done more for the security of Israel than the Obama administration.”
This is such ridiculous piece of verbiage that it must have caused some hilarity even with the Clintons. Let us not forget, it was the Obama administration that used American tax payers dollars to meddle in the Israeli election and tried to insure the defeat of Obama’s enemy, Benjamin Netanyahu; just one more Obama failure in the Middle East.
• I guess in the 2016 election, Putin was just using Obama’s Israeli election meddling ploy to justify his meddling; funny how that works.
• Now of course at the very end of the Obama presidency, we find out Kerry is involved in one more international meeting scheduled to further damage Israel. The only silver lining is President Trump’s message to Israel, “On the 20th of January, things will change.”
Just to answer a perhaps obvious question. I am an American, but my ethnicity is Anglo/Irish. I have now come to the conclusion the predominate half, is the Irish half because I am very partial to a bottle of good ole Johnnie Jameson Irish whiskey, so let us raise our glasses to the demise of the Obama/Kerry reign, slainte (to your health) my friends.
