John Kerry, ex-Secretary of State, actively undermining U.S. Policy, was in Iran counselling this largest state sponsor of terrorism to ignore the present U.S. Administration. The policy of the Iranian government is to wipe Israel and these USA from the face of the earth. Why subversively conspire with them?
Immediately after the funeral of Saint John Paul II back in the day, I had a 15 minute conversation with John Kerry in which he promised me a televised debate. That was to be on abortion issues. But now I would like to expand that to include Israel and Iran.
What shocked me in speaking with him is that it was as if I was talking to a robot, with someone else somewhere else desperately pushing buttons so as to make whatever soundbite come out of his mouth, but none of these soundbites had anything to do with the conversation. It was all so vacuous. Soulless. Styrofoam. Puppetry.
Perhaps I am mean, but if I were to get a televised debate, I would like the presenters to put up a score board on screen so as to number how many times totally irrelevant soundbites were used as answers. Numbers go negative, deeper in the hole when irrelevant answer are given; one goes up in score with each true answer.
But, forget about me. Mike Pompeo has a great stage presence. He hates irrelevance and he’s always on point. I’d love to see a debate between him and Kerry, but this time in court.
A reader sent in the above video. It reminds me of the one I made, perhaps even more to the point, at Yad vaShem back just before the first Gulf War:
As I mentioned in my first post on John Kerry’s bogus speech 28 Dec 2016, I had a long chat with him in the Vatican Gardens. That was immediately after the funeral of Saint Pope John Paul II. The diplomats had to leave through the gardens, as well as the priests who were helping with Communion (I was with the choir right at the facade of Saint Peter’s). I beckoned him and we had quite the conversation about Catholic doctrine and abortion, at the end of which he agreed to a televised debate. That never came about. He was, after all, moving up in the world, right? His body guards were almost pulling him off his crutches (he having a broken leg at the time). But he insisted on speaking with me at length. Those were the days when, after pushing for abortion as strenuously as he might, he would be televised going to Communion. Thank the Lord that diplomats never ever receive Communion at Papal Masses. I would have scolded him just like JPII scolded Father Knucklehead in Nicaragua. Did I mention that today is the Feast of the Holy Innocents? The nations rage against the Lord and against his anointed, but the Lord is the Lord of History.
This calls to mind the night I spent at the Iranian Embassy with the Chief Rabbi of Rome. The Jews of Rome gathered to pray since just hours before Iran threatened to wipe Israel from the face of the earth. I was in my roman cassock and collar, obviously a priest. The Rabbi came over to greet me, he saying to me: “Praised be Jesus Christ!”
ISIS sawed in half a five year old boy the other day. I wonder if that kind of thing is what John Kerry means by “not-significant security risks.” I wonder if kids don’t matter to John Kerry outside the womb just like they don’t matter for him inside the womb.
John Kerry’s passionate speech (like my one-on-one 15 minutes with him in the Vatican Gardens), was entirely anachronistic, living in the past, utterly suppressing present day realities of these U.S.A. helping Iran wipe Israel off the face of the earth with Iran’s increasingly aggressive nuclear program.
The two-state-solution means nothing if one of those states is dying from the cancer subsequent to nuclear fallout, also making the land unlivable for the other state. Everything under the Obama Administration, anything touched by this Secretary of State, is deadly for Israel and the Jewish people.
There are a thousand ambiguities and openings to terrorism in the speech. How many times was it referenced that moving forward in whatever way would only involve a not-significant risk to security? What on earth does that mean? How many terrorist incidents would be allowed under the high bar of “not-significant”? What does that even mean when people are getting killed? On and on. Is Russia really a best friend of Israel in the region? Unbelievable…
I have to wonder if the analysts who had input into that speech were conspiring to go out of their way to make Kerry look like a clown in hopes of getting promotions under the upcoming Administration. I mean, really, it’s just that bad, and, I’m afraid, just that easy to do. It’s just too easy.
