Secretary of State? John Kerry Belongs in Jail! [Reader Post]

By 11 Comments 1,520 views

It looks like John Kerry will soon be our next Secretary of State. The initial nominee, Susan Rice, went down as a sacrificial lamb so that the Republicans can say that they got their pound of flesh and President Obama can get the person he probably wanted in the first place without the same intense scrutiny. The conspiracy theorist in me thinks that this was the same thing that President G.W. Bush did with his nomination of Harriet Meyers to the Supreme Court, but that’s neither here nor there. I’m not even going to focus on how many ways Kerry’s past statements on foreign policy make him incredibly unqualified for this position. While I don’t like the idea of Kerry representing the United States in this role, just like potentially appointing Anna Wintour as our ambassador to the U. K. I think that Kerry is a perfect representative for the Obama administration and how it sees the United States’ role in the world. There is one small problem – John Kerry belongs in jail.

Back in December in an effort to try to boost Al Sharpton, MSNBC managed to find one of the few people who could make Sharpton look intelligent by comparison and booked Harry Belafonte as a guest. Belafonte went on to make some… interesting comments:

“That there should be this lingering infestation of really corrupt people who sit trying to dismantle the wishes of the people, the mandate that has been given to Barack Obama, and I don’t know what more they want,” he said. “The only thing left for Barack Obama to do is to work like a third world dictator and just put all these guys in jail.”

This got some attention from the political junkie class, but not much else. Such blatant stupidity is only newsworthy when it’s spoken by a conservative. Belafonte is asserting that opposing the president’s Obamacare mandate and the higher taxes needed to fund it is a crime that warrants imprisonment. Well, you can add John Kerry to that category. You can also add Al Franken, Elizabeth Warren, and Joe Lieberman among 18 Democrats who signed a petition to Harry Reid  asking for a delay in the implementation of the medical device tax that was scheduled to kick in on January 1st. Their complaint is that the deferment is needed because the medical device industry had been given insufficient guidance as to how to comply with the new medical device tax. You read that correctly – a delay was requested because clarification was needed for a bill that was signed into law nearly two years ago.

AP writer Bob Salsberg helped to clarify the reason for the request: The tax, scheduled to take effect on Jan. 1, is expected to raise $20 billion over 10 years. It’s one of several taxes imposed on segments of the health care industry to help pay for President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul.

Lobbyists for medical device makers say implementation of the tax could jeopardize about 43,000 jobs nationwide in a $64.7 billion industry. They say companies have shed about 6,000 jobs in the past year, some in anticipation of the tax, while others might scuttle expansion plans or cut back on research that can lead to medical breakthroughs.

So now we have a group of Democrats who want to delay part of the greatest piece of legislation signed into law by the most brilliant president in American history and and are opposing the revenues needed to fund it? I’m scratching my head over this one, as every lefty I know has been arguing that higher taxes and increased regulation don’t have any negative impact on companies’ hiring or expansion plans, and on a larger scale don’t hurt economic growth. So why on Earth would there be this kind of opposition? Since there is no rational explanation, as much as it pains me to say this I can only reach this conclusion. We already know that Kerry is unpatriotic. But even worse still:

John Kerry must be a racist.

Blogging by the credo of "Making the world a more offensive place, one blog post at a time", Brother Bob started writing posts around the beginning of the Obama presidency over at Brother Bob's Blog. A born-again Existentialist and self-professed libertarian with conservative tendencies, he has ironically chosen to live in the Washington, DC area - deep behind enemy lines. He has always loved history, and spent eight years volunteering as a tour guide on weekends, giving over 200 tours to roughly 2,500 mostly foreign guests. His tours were highlighted by stories generally not found in the history books or most other tours, such as the importance of the Battle if Antietam, the origins or Arlington Cemetery, and dispelling the myths of FDR's New Deal. Although his favorite subject to blog about is Economics, as seen in his Economics for Politicians series, his posts try to address angles that other conservative writers and the mainstream media (naturally!) miss. "There's no point in putting up a post on a subject that someone smarter than me has already written". He believes in the "Happy Warrior" approach, and tries to inject humor in his posts, sometimes successfully. Two such examples are his posts comparing the modern left to the horrible Star Wars prequels, and analyzing the laments of a DC woman in search of a feminist boyfriend. Brother Bob lives with his very patient wife known as Sister Babe, and their fantastic son. Little Bob. Little Bob is also the reason that being a tour guide came to an end, as spending Saturdays raising a son takes priority over giving lectures to foreign visitors on the folly of Keynesian economics. BB is also grateful for the opportunity to take his place among the outstanding writers at Flopping Aces, appreciates every person who takes the time to read his posts, and especially those who join him in the conversation in the comments.

    John F Kerry is guilty of numerous felonies.
    1. He confessed to multiple war crimes before the Fulbright Committee.
    2. He negotiated privately with our enemies (North Vietnam and the Vietcong).
    3. He abused the Purple Heart award by receiving the award for scratches.
    4. He fraudulently received a Silver Star with “V” for valor (there is no such award).
    5. His brother has made millions through North Korea port deals.
    6. He evaded taxes by moving his yacht to Rhode Island.
    There is lots more; he is privileged; the law does not apply to him; he is from MA and they love traitors and idiots in that state.
    Oh, yes. He divorced his first rich widow in order to marry a second, richer widow.
    So, in addition to treason, he is a thorough sleaze ball.
    Just what we need.
    Oh, yes. He never signed his release so that his military “records” can be viewed, and we can find out how he got an honorable discharge. Or three separate awards for his Silver Star. Did he ever throw those medals away, or does he still own them?

    ###He never signed his release so that his military “records” can be viewed, and we can find out how he got an honorable discharge.###

    George Bush shut Kerry up on the matter when he told Kerry that he would release his military records if Kerry would release his. Nothing was ever said about it after that.

    Did he ever throw those medals away, or does he still own them?

    He first said he threw the medals over the White House fence. When it was proven he never did, then he said he threw the ribbons over, but not the medals.

    Looking at the obama court the king has and wants, Kerry should fit right in. A perfect fit for obama, means a lousy fit for WE THE PEOPLE.

    Obama and lily-white Kerry have things in common.
    Their ideology is class warfare while their lifestyle screams, “I’m RICH!, look at ME!!”
    Both men take that old phrase, “limousine liberal” to new heights.
    And their “stick-my ritzy-lifestyle-in-your-poor-downtrodden-face,” attitude was what got people guillotined in days of old in France.
    Perhaps they actually watch those reality TV shows about rich folks and think the poor will LIKE living vicariously through their owning yachts and taking lavish vacas.
    But not all of the poor are that stupid.

    @mathman: “2. He negotiated privately with our enemies (North Vietnam and the Vietcong).”

    From what I have been able to learn over the past years – I believe that Kerry was still a Reservist when he was negotiating with the enemy. Yes, he should have been thrown in prison a very long time ago.
