John Kerry Should Only Be Mad at Himself

Secretary of State John Kerry was in rare form on Wednesday as he defended the Obama administration’s unprecedented decision to abstain from a Security Council vote condemning Israel for their settlements. In his speech, Kerry warned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that his government was responsible for making peace with the Palestinians impossible.

“The status quo is leading toward one state, or perpetual occupation,” Kerry said, using his I’m Very Serious and I Really Mean It voice. Using that tone, he surmised that Israel could not exist for much longer if it did not come around to embrace the two-state solution that several consecutive American administrations have pursued.

Kerry took a direct swipe at Netanyahu at one point, obliquely replying to the prime minister’s statement that “friends don’t take friends to the Security Council.”

“Some seem to believe that the U.S. friendship means the U.S. must accept any policy, regardless of our own interests, our own positions, our own words, our own principles — even after urging again and again that the policy must change,” he said. “Friends need to tell each other the hard truths, and friendships require mutual respect.”

Well, there’s a world of difference between telling each other the “hard truths” – note the underlying assumption that Kerry’s position IS the truth – and embarrassing them on an international platform. The U.N. resolution does not necessarily have any tangible repercussions, but it weakens the U.S.-Israel alliance and it gives undue legitimacy to all of the Arab dictatorships that want to see our “friends” wiped off the face of the planet.

Kerry said that under Netanyahu’s government, Israel had strayed too far to the right.

“The Israeli prime minister publicly supports a two-state solution, but his current coalition is the most right wing in Israeli history, with an agenda driven by its most extreme elements,” he said. “The result is that policies of this government — which the prime minister himself just described as ‘more committed to settlements than any in Israel’s history’ — are leading in the opposite direction, towards one state.”

Of course, Kerry isn’t actually angry about Israeli settlements; he’s angry about his own failure to produce peace in the Middle East. And now he and Obama are taking their frustrations out on Netanyahu in an attempt to make it seem like they did everything they could to secure a treaty.

In truth, the only thing the two of them accomplished was the signing of the Iranian nuclear agreement – a deal that put Israel’s future in greater jeopardy than it has been since the 1960s. Now they are compounding the damage by leaving Israel at the mercy of the United Nations.

The world will be a safer place when these idiots are out of office.

    JOHN KERRY, IS A JOKE….

  • McFerguson

    Uh-oh, The big bad Bear dude had better watch out. Obama (The Mouse that Roared) and Kerry (“I voted for it before I voted against for it”) are hoppin’ mad! This is like the two married gay gays attacking Ivanka Trump for riding coach on the Jet Blue flight.

  • Rob

    John Kerry has mental illness called bone-head lacks common sense! Twisted logic is a liberal mental disorder! The democrats in D.C. are criminals and they think that because they have a political position they can get away with their crimes! “We The People” are the bosses of these moronic egotistical imbiciles! I’ve never seen more idiots in politics than the obama administration! Every lunatic in liberal land have made a spectacle of themselves by acting as if they know better than anyone else, and think that they are superior intellectually than leaders of other countries! They humiliate themselves every time they try to do anything because they are stupid people! Then they treat all others like they are the stupid people, and therefore their stupidity is superior! This makes our country a joke to the outside world, as well as the American people! The antics of the obama administration are the “Three Stooges” “Laurel and Hardy” “Abbot and Costello” rolled into one, and the only ones that can’t see that are themselves!

  • Rob

    The Obama administration has the audacity to say Mr.Trump isn’t capable of being POTUS after the circus side show they have been since day one of the obama presidency! I recall President George W. Bush being asked by a reporter around the time that the Obamas were asking if they could stay overnight at the White House before the inauguration, about his thoughts of the newly elected obama, and he answered, “oh he’s not ready!” There has never been a more correct assessment of obama!

  • raygun

    Kerry has been “mad” ever since he gave up his “officer” rank and fled to the hippy dark side of “Hanoi” Jane Fonda and her commie friends. Somehow he married the billionaire heir to the Heinz family. Problems seemed to follow him around when his “boat gate” happened. I guess his failed ‘Nam experience qualified him for the SOS. He certainly doesn’t need the money. This far left wing nut is definitely a Obozo sheeple looking for his “legacy” riding on Obozo’s “legacy”, whatever that is.

    • Bob Wilson

      kerry and obama are just 2 really sorry excuses for human beings. Both are anti semitic and hate this country and white people in particular. If anyone is a poster boy for white priviledge it is kerry.

    • Roy Fredrichsen

      I agree! All Kerry did was make a bad situation worse. But, I guess I should have expected it when O’Bummer threw Israel “under the bus” when he abstained the U S vote in the UN, assuring Israel being condemned for defending themselves against Arab attacks.

    • Mathew Molk

      Pretty good huh? 4 months in country living like a king and then home after the first shot the VC fires at him and then he scratched his hand with a pen knife. – Good thing he got out before he got somebody killed, though.

      He shouldn’t blame himself, though….What he should do is DROP DEAD!

      • David Kuchera

        Great you hit the nail on the, Oh well some place!

    • Jerry Bible

      Unfortunaetly, I was in Vietnam at the same time and the same area as Kerry. He awarded himself Purple Hearts for injuries he caused himself. Threw grenade in trash and wounded by by his own shrapnel, bumped head when he turned his swiftboat too fast, etc.. Then he awarded himself a Silver Star. (Not earned by his actions, of course.). But then, I was only a USMC Naval Aviator, flying combat missions, not an “Elite” such as John Kerry.

  • Rob

    Democrats want to lecture people, even though they don’t have the mental capabilities of the ones they try to lecture! This has totally humiliated the USA in the minds of people all over the world! This makes the leaders of other countries giggle, and happy because they can manipulate retarded obama administration, except when it comes to our allies, then it makes them look even worse, because they don’t seem to understand the meaning of the word ally! They do more for our advisories than our allies! I’m not sure if they are insane, or just plain stupid.

  • David Barneby

    I guess the US has such affinities with Israel that it feels an obligation to support Israel no matter what .
    The continuous expansion of Jewish settlements into Palestinian land is criminal and no one with any moral scruples should stand by , say nothing or take no action . Kerry should be ashamed for not supporting the UN , abstaining is not good enough .

  • Alex Moskovits

    ‘The world will be a safer place when these idiots are out of office.’…….could not have said it better myself!

  • Alex Moskovits

    “The world will be a safer place when these idiots are out of office.” Could not have stated it better myself!

  • ‘The world will be a safer place when these idiots are out of office.’ Could not have stated it better myself!

  • Kerry is mad because he isn’t going to get the obligatory Nobel price given to liberals. He did manage to swing a Purple heart for a cut finger in Vietnam.That’s probably in his trophy room. Did he get any award for his sprained foot during his epic bicycle ride during the peace talks?

  • John Oberheuser

    Hard to decide which one was worse at this job. Hillary or Kerry both should have to give their pay back.

  • Douglas White

    Kerry should be dead in Vietnam.

  • Kerry is a screwed up individual that does not know right from wrong. The stupid democrats have many in there party that are far left believers that could not make it in the private sector and one of their big ones is Bernie Sanders could not hold down a private sector job but held on to the senate for years. We need to get rid of career politicians and zero retirement, not the $170K+ that they receive even if they are elected to only one term a disaster for the tax payers and the longer they are in somehow they end up with becoming very rich. Look at Waters her husband was on the board of directors of a Boston Bank driving a Posche and getting a big fat salary and if Waters was not in the house he would have gotten shit.

  • Dan

    Yo swiftboat – friends don’t turn their backs on friends. You missed that in Vietnam and you STILL miss it.

  • DonOldGuy

    The shame of being an American that drives worthless individuals like Barack, Moochell, Hanoi John, and Jeremiah Wright, never lets them comprehend the importance of having strength, stability, and leadership in a world full of danger.
    Never do any of these fools point to a country to which they would proudly belong. Of course if allowed to be King they would be satisfied.

  • Carter was our first bad President and Obama is America’s first failed President. Everything he did turned to dog poop. And his legacy of Hope and Change… has left America so changed we now murder our own unborn children like some third world nation of heathen for a women’s right to choose death for her own offspring. This is so New World Order and not America!

    • Shovel ready poop jobs with love from obama.

    • Rivahmitch

      Due Respect, but…

      There were “bad” presidents before Carter. I’ll skip those before the 20th century…I’d list Wilson (got us into a war for the NY Banksters and was responsible for the 16th & 17th Amendments, from whence come many of our modern problems), FDR (overly enamored of his “Uncle Joe” Stalin), and Johnson. We do agree, I think, that the Kenyan muslim/marxist is the worst.

  • lookatthebigpicture

    Some friends. Twice two sepetate high ranking officials in Israel told their Congress, “We own America and they know it.”. Don’t forget the USS Liberty where our ship was attacked by Israeli planes while in International waters during their little war with Egypt. It only stopped when one of our bigger vessels (against orders) went to help. They are all cut from the same cloth, all Semites. So before anyone says I’m “anti-Semitic” that would also mean I’m against Arabs too. Best we just stay out of that area altogether. Any president who thinks they will negotiate a peace in one or two terms in an area where people have been fighting over land for thousands of years is a fool.

  • kathie ellis

    God will bless those who bless Israel, and He will
    curse those that curse Israel. Every time a politician
    goes against Israel, some disaster happens in America.

    Check this scripture out: Gen 12:3
    Concerning Israel.

  • Francis

    Come on people. This is just Liberal posturing. Leave Trump everything in shambles so he gets the blame. The joke is on them though. He’ll fix everything they do. Probably the two Stupidest people on this earth, Kerry and Obama should have just gone peacefully. but know, Americans want them out more than ever. Thank God for the South or this Country could not have withstood a 3rd(Clinton) Obama term.

    This needs to go viral. Says it all. Now at least the real biggoted, racist, Jew haters are exposed for all to see.

    Kerry can’t even keep his tongue in his mouth..it is always falling out on his bottom lip. His Botox has just about destroyed mouth.

  • JOE S HILL

    John Kerry is a serious joke,and i hope Trump fires him when he takes office in January!

    • Hambone

      He picks his own Secratary of State which will be Rex Tillerson. Jan 20, 2017 cannot come soon enough!

  • John Kerry Was, and Is, and Always will be a ..A.H. !

  • John Kerry, WAS, and IS, and will Always will Be a stupid Azz Hole ! ( we refer to him as “Lurch”. fitting isn’t it )

  • Janelle

    I wish he would cease talking……..the lizard tongue affliction is revolting and he is boring to add to the annoyance.

  • Ann

    John Kerry is an embarrassment to this country, some of the remarks he has made are so ridiculous that they are laughable. He needs to get on his yacht and sail away!

  • Fred

    How did sleaze bag Kerry ever get his Secretary of State position??
    Years ago he was against America and who knows what bad deals against America has he made. He is one un-American if ever was one.

  • TomEd

    I listened to the Kerry diatribe…he said (and I quote) “poo, poo, poopy, poo”.

  • volarekc

    The tone of Kerry’s speech was putting all the blame on Israel, really ignoring the rocket attacks and terrorism caused by the Muslim Palestinians. Israel has already given up much land for peace (Gaza, Bethlehem), and all it got them was more rockets shot at them from Gaza. It almost seems like Obama was having a temper tantrum, and he had his henchman Kerry deliver the speech for him.

  • volarekc

    The tone of Kerry’s speech was all anti-Israel. He put the total blame for everything on Israel. Israel has already given up land for peace (Gaza, Bethlehem), and all it has gotten them is more rockets fired at them from Gaza. It’s almost like Obama was having a temper tantrum because things didn’t go 100% his way in this issue, and he had Kerry deliver his speech for him.

  • Jay

    Kerry, Obama and Clinton(s) should all be tried for high treason. There is more enough evidence with regards to the damnable agreement(s) with Iran alone. They should be given one-way paid excursions to padded cells in Guatanamo Bay for life.

  • Richardb

    I guess it hasn’t occurred to anyone that Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians is despicable. Let’s not forget that these are fellow human beings.

  • The Maeven

    Since Kerry’s daughter is now a muslim, and since Obozo really likes having traitors and jahadists on his staff, not one red blooded AMERICAN stands with YOU, or the illegal alien potus whose ass you kiss hourly. Both of you are now totally irrelevant, so you can just add another treason to your list. YOU DISRESPECTED OUR Fiercest and stalwart ally. We will NEVER allow anything the two of you idiots did stand past noon on Inauguration Day. Obozo’s entire corrupt regime will fall like a rock. The criminally guilty must be prosecuted. The congress needs to sanction some of the democrats whose rhetoric has been hateful, mendacious, targeted against Christians and the working man. If “Vengence is Mine, sayeth the Lord, I volunteer to be His chief Enforcer!

  • The Maeven

    I no longer have anything to say about either one of ’em. They have both proven themselves traitors many times over. Hoping that multiple traitor hearings are coming up. Hoping to watch them hang.

  • Samuel Hay

    He has certainly proven himself to be pretty damned stupid.

  • Hambone

    Kerry is only friends with himself and obozo. Everyone else is cannon fodder to these mad, corrupt killer clowns.

    • Dan

      Don’t forget uncle ” if they come knockin on my door I’ll blast a hole in em with my shotgun but you can’t have guns” joey bidden.

  • What to say about someone who served in Vietnam and had his own camera crew on hand when he removed a rocket launcher from a dead 16 year old. He a real hero ! The American public has been fooled by these two clowns and Hillary since 2008! Thank God for this nation it woke up in time. The popular vote would be much different if we removed illegals and felons from the count.

  • Is everybody laughing at horse face now? They still have 19 days to create havoc with the American people and is Michelle’s struggle just beginning? That woman has got a nerve to feed us this claptrap about struggle after having lived in the finest mansion, flown the best private plane, had the most elaborate parties with the most fabulous clothes. I could go on and on but just want to note this,
    Michelle has lived like a one percent of the one percenters for eight years and she talks about her struggle. They have three + homes and are now independently wealthy and they have nothing but scorn for us poor white folks! We have renewed hope that things are getting better this year.
    Happy New Year!

  • Alan

    Seems like Kerry has never mentioned his Jewish ancestry. Might he think that is something that should be hidden??

    • Mathew Molk

      I hope that is not true.. It’s an insult to the Jews to have him as a relative. Traitors are not much liked in Israel,,,or here anymore for that matter. .

  • Grizz Mann

    Has anyone checked as to whether occupancy is limited to Jews or just Israeli citizens? BTW there are Arab Israeli citizens.

  • Julia Thompson

    Krazy Kerry is so stupid that he doesn’t even know when he is being insulted. The Jews don’t want him, the Russians don’t want him, the U. S. can’t wait until he is gone Yet he thinks he is the best and most popular SOS there ever was. The only thing he is good at is making a fool of himself for saying things like “they can’t be Jewish and Democratic at the same time. It is two totally different things. He has no common sense. In my opinion, he was a traitor during the Viet Nam War and he is a traitor now.

  • Stan Lee

    Kerry will never be angry or dissatisfied with himself. He loves himself too much and in that respect exhibits the same narcissistic tendencies of Obama.

  • Floyd Lehman

    He should have been shot when threw his dog tag over the WHITE HOUSE fence.

  • Stan Levine

    Kerry is consumed with himself. He married into money and is only capable of “piling on” and going with what is popular, never has he been innovative.. He is a pon on a losing Obama team and the sooner he moves out of Washington the better. Jews do not acknowledge that he is from Jewish background. He is a disgrace.

  • RW

    Lurch has had to much plastic surgery.

  • Bigger Ed

    Ketchup John Teresa Kerry is a ‘Putz’—–man is as much a fake politician as Obozo is a fake president !

  • hawkeye

    I agree with Stan Lee about john Kerry,he was not a officer my any stretch of the imagination when he was in Country so he had to leave, he was commissioned a officer but a very poor one.

  • Bigger Ed

    Ketchup John Teresa Kerry is a ‘Putz’—–he is a fake politician as is Obozo is a fake president !

  • Kerry did a lot of damage to himself! And he did a lot of damage to the UN!

  • I’m surprised that Kerry has lasted this long in politics, he is a complete asshole. Israel is our strongest ally in the middle east and always has been. We all know Obama has been against Israel because he is a muslim.

  • Joseppie

    What Kerry did for the first time, he did the right thing. He put Americas interest first, and thats the way always should be. God Bless John Kerry, and God Bless the U.S.A.
    Every country must listen to us if they need our support, moral, financial and/or otherwise.

  • Yes, ban all that are threatening the U.S., all the countries you mentioned.
