from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:
If you’re surprised by recent revelations about America’s “climate czar,” John Kerry, then you don’t know John Kerry.
“… the newspaper [New York Times] reported the audio revealed that Kerry had disclosed sensitive intelligence about Israel to [Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad] Zarif.”
According to leaked audio, “Former Secretary of State John Kerry informed him that Israel had attacked Iranian interests in Syria at least 200 times, to his astonishment, Zarif said,” the New York Times reported. read more

The Telephone Bill Comes for Sundown Joe
New reasons to suspect Joe Biden will not make it to the nomination finish line.
You’ve likely never heard of Andriy Derkach, and that’s all right. If the Democrat Party and their media allies get their way, you’ll never hear of him again.
But Derkach, a former Ukrainian intelligence officer trained in Moscow and a member of the Ukrainian Parliament aligned with the party of Russia-friendly former leader Viktor Yanukovych, dropped a major bombshell Tuesday in a press conference in Kiev, releasing audiotapes of phone calls which seem very much like they include conversations between another Ukrainian leader, Petro Poroshenko, and former Secretary of State John Kerry and Vice President Joe Biden in 2016.
Those audiotapes, which Derkach says he received from “investigative journalists” — it’s OK to call his sources spies — do not present, to put it kindly, Biden in a good light. The material they contain is apparently the same stuff that Rudy Giuliani was so fired up about after he made his trip to Ukraine late last year; Derkach was one of the people Giuliani met with. read more

Once again, losing presidential candidate, failed Secretary of State and the main proponent of the disastrous Iran Deal is attempting to make himself relevant. John Kerry, a charter member of the Deep State under Obama, continues to operate as if the electorate of this country did not elect Donald Trump as the President.
Delusional in every aspect, Kerry feels he is still Secretary of State and is conducting shadowy, illegal foreign policy that he can neither impose. Kerry, in concert with the “Death to America” Iranian mullahs, Kerry has once again turned his back on the American people and American policy, promising the American hating, PLO leading Mahmoud Abbas everything he wants, and going so far as denigrating our President as an eight-year-old child.
Abbas declared to the PLO central Council a few days ago that the Oslo Peace accords were dead. He has insulted our country and our President, called for suspending recognition of Israel, rejecting any role for American in the peace talks.
Kerry, throughout his military and public service career, has never respected our country or the American people. The latest confrontation started when the President moved the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. But as reported in the Jerusalem Post, Kerry has maintained contact with Abbas and other PLO officials.
Kerry met with Mahmoud Abbas and Hussien Agha in London. He also visited with Foreign Minister Javad Zarif to discuss plans to preserve the Iran nuclear deal. There is also information that Kerry is meeting with European leaders such as German leader Frank-Walter Steinmeier, EU official Federica Mogherini andFrench President Emmanuel Macron – pleading with these leaders to defy the sanctions that have been imposed on Iran. read more

By secretly and subversively negotiating with the terrorist nation of Iran, John Kerry is in clear violation of the Logan Act. Yet unlike many of Trump’s former associates, the FBI, Justice Department, the NSA and others don’t appear to wish to lift a finger to investigate or stop him. We are witnessing the unequal application of the law – again.
Gun manufacturer, Springfield Armory, announced it has severed ties with Dick’s Sporting Goods over their stance on guns, gun control and the Second Amendment. The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the nation’s largest firearms trade association, has also, by unanimous vote, expelled Dick’s from membership in the organization. Good for both for taking a stand. read more

So far Donald Trump’s picks for various Cabinet positions have not gone swimmingly. Both Attorney General nominee Jeff Sessions and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson have been grilled thus far.
Now, we would expect democrats to make a fuss, despite their inability to really affect the outcome of any of the confirmations. Heck, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, democrat hack and race hustler, even made history by attempting to dress down fellow Senator Sessions. But of course this was all a show for the TV cameras, as Booker is actually auditioning to be the next Obama, knowing that Obama gained national exposure for his keynote address at the 2004 Democrat National Convention. Obama was a nobody prior to that. After his performance, Booker is still a nobody.
What isn’t typical are two Republicans Senators openly stating that they are not only concerned with Tillerson and his ties with Russia, but can’t say whether they will vote for Trump’s Secretary of State selection.
On Wednesday, Rubio said he’s “prepared to what’s right,” regarding his confirmation vote. This sounds to me, at least for now, that “what’s right” is a no vote on Tillerson. read more
At least Putin knows how to fight wars
On Friday, the Washington Post dutifully reported that our slow-witted secretary of state, John Kerry, who ironically thinks he is the smartest guy in any room, is calling “for the Syrian and Russian governments to face a war-crimes investigation over attacks on civilians in Syria.” They did not add the editorial comments – that was me.
While meeting with French Foreign Minister Blacque Jacque Shellacque, Kerry said that Russia and Syria had a “targeted strategy to terrorize civilians and kill anybody who is in the way of their military objectives.” The French foreign minister’s name isn’t really the aforementioned, but seeing as how I don’t really care what it is, I simply inserted a name for which those who know and love Bugs Bunny cartoons would be familiar. read more

Ever wonder what has become of the $150 billion of Iranian assets that Barack Obama and John Kerry freed up on our behalf? Did Obama or Kerry ever bother to ask – Gee Ayatollah, what do you plan to do with all that extra cash?
Will it go to education or maybe healthcare? Perhaps they intend to use it for roads and bridges or help the less fortunate, both at home and in other much needier nations.
I don’t know about the former, but as it turns out the Iranian Regime does intend on helping the less fortunate. Iran’s Ambassador to Lebanon Mohammad Fateh Ali announced, “that the world’s foremost terrorist state will be giving $7,000 to the families of ‘martyrs of the intifada in occupied Jerusalem,’ plus another ‘$30,000 to every family whose home the occupation has demolished for the participation of one of its sons.’”
It’s like the Iranian Regime just won the lottery – the largest jackpot in the history of the world and their spreading it around. I wonder if they opted for payments over 20 years or simply took the lump sum? read more

It’s common knowledge that Barack Obama is no fan of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and the same goes for Bibi’s feeling toward Obama. In fact, in my opinion, they despise each other. Barack hates Bibi because Obama is an Islamic sympathizer, and Bibi hates Obama for the exact same reason.
Of course that’s not the way it is publicly. World leaders, even ones that lead from behind are expected to maintain decorum when they speak of one another. There is no love for one another or even mutual admiration, but a healthy respect is conveyed. That’s publicly.
And I guess that public decorum is supposed to extend down the line to staff members – say to like a communications director, whom you would think would know how to effectively communicate.
But evidently, conservative commentator Ran Baratz, Netanyahu’s newly appointed communications director didn’t get the memo, as some rather ignoble comments have been discovered about our fine Israel-loving president.
His Facebook post, although written in Hebrew is translated as: “I may be a little spicy, unlike להרגליי moderates: Obama’s treatment of Netanyahu’s speech — Looks like a modern anti-Semitism in western liberal. Of course and she comes with a lot of tolerance and understanding of anti-Semitism Islamic; so much tolerance and understanding, until willing to even give them a nuke.” read more
You not might be aware that in 2009, the daughter of Secretary of State John Kerry, Dr. Vanessa Bradford Kerry, John Kerry’s younger daughter by his first wife, married an Iranian-American physician named Dr. Brian (Behrooz) Vala Nahed.
Of course you’re not aware of it. read more

What is it about U.S. Secretaries of State? Are they all just stupid? Or is it that they are all just so much more reasoned and intelligent than us plebes that we just can’t comprehend their genius?
Now, it’s pretty common knowledge that John Kerry believes he may be the smartest man on the planet. I think he is just that egotistical. So much so that I honestly think that Kerry came out of the Iran negotiations believing we actually won, and that he and he alone actually accomplished something momentous and historic.
Oh, he accomplished something historic all right. It was/is so bad, even a child can understand how awful this agreement is. It might be said, in schoolyard parlance, that Iran gave Kerry the biggest Atomic (pun intended) wedgie since Neville Chamberlain. And by the looks of things, he must have enjoyed it.
I don’t believe Kerry is putting on a brave face for the public. I really think he believes he triumphed. That’s just how thick and full of himself he is, that he also thinks Iran can be an ally of the United States. read more
