John Kerry Proves He's Still Inept at That Foreign Policy Stuff

Liberals are in hysterics and wetting themselves because the President went to Europe and talked tough to European allies and actually had the audacity to question why they don't pay their fair share in defending the continent from Russian aggression. And just like every other times Trump has done something they deem unusual or dangerous, he gets results and liberals are left looking embarrassingly for the next shiny object. As a result of Trump's straightforward tough talk, the NATO nations have agreed to increase their military spending and no one was harder hit than former Secretary of State John Kerry--The Earl of Ketchup/Duke of Heinz--who ceremoniously defined the role of top US diplomat with historic ineptitude and incompetence
"NATO leaders pledged their “unwavering commitment” to boost defense spending on Wednesday, following stern words from President Trump criticizing European leaders for spending too little. The U.S. and European allies signed a declaration stating they are “committed to improving the balance of sharing the costs and responsibilities of alliance membership.” The declaration comes after confrontational and testy discussions between Trump and other NATO leaders."
So Trump dresses down NATO about lack of military spending and they respond by increasing military spending. It seems so simple. Why couldn’t Kerry or Obama do this? I guess I answered my own question. Kerry and Obama.

Kerry posted a statement on the tweeter saying that Trump was “disgraceful and destructive” and called his statement “counter productive.” He also claimed that Trump had undermined the Obama administration’s efforts to get NATO to increase their military spending. I wonder if the news has reached him Trump actually got NATO to do this while he and Barky had failed so miserably.

Kerry implied Trump was stupid, which is funny coming from a guy who paid Iran pallets of cash to continue their nuclear weapons program. Kerry then tried to make it seem like he was tougher on Russia than Trump is. Yeah, same guy who sat around sipping Chardonnay with other useless diplomats as Russia annexed a large portion of the Ukraine. And all this coming from the Secretary of State who summed up the Clinton/Kerry foreign policy years; 'Nothing Says World Peace Like a Box of Potatoes'.

Obviously John Kerry is confused by foreign policy success. This is something he has never experienced before and it is frightening to him. It also probably doesn’t help that Trump’s winning makes Kerry look even more like a blathering idiot.

Dershowitz vs Kerry

John Kerry’s history on foreign policy throughout the years has been nothing short of a disaster.  Kerry ended his foreign policy career as Obama's Useful Idiot with a preposterous, rambling, lengthy speech poking a finger in the eye of Israel.

John Kerry: America's Worst Secretary of State

Let’s skip the formalities and stipulate that the Obama administration hates Benjamin Netanyahu. Most muslim sympathizers do.  That’s why Obama sent his campaign team to Israel to defeat PM Netanyahu.  And with that in mind, it didn’t take long for PM Netanyahu’s office to respond to Kerry’s speech, saying “For more than an hour, Kerry obsessed over the issue of settlements and hardly touched on the root of the conflict – Palestinian resistance to a Jewish state within any borders.”

Kerry’s inability or unwillingness to admit that the Palestinians have never negotiated in good faith with Israelis is the heart of the problem. It’s why Kerry’s diplomacy is such a failure. Later, PM Netanyahu added "Israelis do not need to be lectured about the importance of peace by foreign leaders."

Saying that relations between this administration and Israel are chilly is understatement. Saying that Secretary Kerry is more incompetent than Mrs. Clinton is mind-boggling. 

Alan Dershowitz’s op-ed in the Boston Globe obliterates Secretary Kerry’s speech. This paragraph alone obliterates most of Kerry’s BS:
"Before June 4, 1967, Jews were forbidden from praying at the Western Wall, Judaism’s holiest site. They were forbidden to attend classes at the Hebrew University at Mt. Scopus, which had been opened in 1925 and was supported by Albert Einstein. Jews could not seek medical care at the Hadassah Hospital on Mt. Scopus, which had treated Jews and Arabs alike since 1918. Jews could not live in the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem, where their forbearers had built homes and synagogues for thousands of years. These Judenrein prohibitions were enacted by Jordan, which had captured by military force these Jewish areas during Israel’s War of Independence, in 1948, and had illegally occupied the entire West Bank, which the United Nations had set aside for an Arab state. When the Jordanian government occupied these historic Jewish sites, they destroyed all the remnants of Judaism, including synagogues, schools, and cemeteries, whose headstones they used for urinals. Between 1948 and 1967 the UN did not offer a single resolution condemning this Jordanian occupation and cultural devastation."
The Obama administration knew that this resolution would tip the international scales into the Palestinians’ favor. Here’s Dershowitz’s explanation of that:
"But that has now changed with the adoption of the Security Council Resolution. The UN has now determined that, subject to any further negotiations and agreements, the Jewish areas of Jerusalem recaptured from Jordan in 1967 are not part of Israel. Instead, according to the resolution, they are territories being illegally occupied by Israel, and any building in these areas — including places for prayer at the Western Wall, access roads to Mt. Scopus, and synagogues in the historic Jewish Quarter — “constitutes a flagrant violation under international law.” If that indeed is the status quo, absent “changes . . . agreed by the parties through negotiations,” then what incentives do the Palestinians have to enter negotiations?"
Barack Obama and his administration's hostility towards Israel has never been more openly displayed than during this past week. Without question, he’s been the most hostile, anti-Israel president in US history.  And John Kerry was his Toad.

James Earl is Still Meddling After all These Years

Jimmy Carter Urges Barack Obama to Divide Up Israel at the United Nations Before Jan. 20

In a stunning editorial for the New York Times, former President Jimmy Carter has publicly called for Barack Obama to seek to divide the land of Israel at the United Nations before Inauguration Day.

While president, Carter negotiated peace between Israel and Egypt, and ever since, he has been a very strong advocate for a Palestinian state. Carter is completely convinced that a “two-state solution” will bring lasting peace to the Middle East, but now that Donald Trump has been elected, Carter knows that his dream of seeing a Palestinian state while he is still alive is rapidly slipping away. In a desperate attempt to salvage the situation, Carter is urging Barack Obama to take bold action while he still has the power to do so.

In his New York Times editorial, one of the steps Carter says Obama should take is to give formal U.S. diplomatic recognition to a Palestinian state.
"I am convinced that the United States can still shape the future of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict before a change in presidents, but time is very short. The simple but vital step this administration must take before its term expires on Jan. 20 is to grant American diplomatic recognition to the state of Palestine, as 137 countries have already done, and help it achieve full United Nations membership....."
Of course such a move would largely just be window dressing. The new Trump administration could very quickly revoke diplomatic recognition, and so if Barack Obama really wanted to "leave a legacy" in the Middle East he would have to do something that Donald Trump would not be able to undo. 
Later on in his editorial, Carter suggested just such a thing. He urged Obama to support a U.N. Security Council resolution that would set forth firm parameters for resolving the conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians.
"The Security Council should pass a resolution laying out the parameters for resolving the conflict. It should reaffirm the illegality of all Israeli settlements beyond the 1967 borders, while leaving open the possibility that the parties could negotiate modifications. Security guarantees for both Israel and Palestine are imperative, and the resolution must acknowledge the right of both the states of Israel and Palestine to live in peace and security. Further measures should include the demilitarization of the Palestinian state, and a possible peacekeeping force under the auspices of the United Nations......"
Over in Israel, the government has been ignoring Carter's anti-Israel rants for years, and they have also responded to this latest editorial by Carter with silence. Carter's criticism of Israel over the years has become increasingly scathing and one-sided.  - Read More
Yes Mr. Carter, "Blessed Are The Peace Makers". But the Lord was not referring to making deals with the Devil.....

John Kerry Calls Election ‘downright embarrassing.’ Twitter Promptly Burns Him to a Crisp.....

The Earl of Ketchup / Duke of Heinz, Secretary of State and failed candidate for president John Kerry is upset about the 2016 election cycle.  On NBC Nightly News, Kerry revealed his sadness of perceptions of the election overseas by noting “There are moments when it is downright embarrassing.” (as if we should really care what people who wish they were us think).

NBC tweeted out his comment and as soon as the tweet went live , he was trounced for his own actions that made a mockery of America and reminded he himself had a hand in making America look absurd.  Here's just a sample:

U.S. State Dept. Will Award You $1.5 Million to Pen a “TV Drama” Helping Combat Islamic Radicalization

Sec.of State John Kerry, The Earl of Ketchup-Duke of Heinz

Secretary of State John Kerry (he fought was in Vietnam Ya Know) will travel to Belgium this week to extend the American peoples' condolences to the citizens of Brussels, and probably to help counter the problematic public relations the White House is facing after our President was pictured tangoing the night away in Argentina rather than attending to important things, like people getting blown up in Europe.

But, fear not, America and our allies, because the State Department has a plan. Announced yesterday, they are now offering a $1.5 million grant to anyone who can pen a television drama series that can counter radicalization in the Middle East.
"This grant will fund the development and broadcast of a television drama series in which young people grapple with everyday frustrations and lack of opportunity, while growing and learning through new experiences," the offer said.
"The drama will be grounded in reality, but will also contain compelling creative content (i.e. storytelling, resonant narratives, strong characters, sophisticated production, etc.)," it added. "In short, it will strive to be entertaining while challenging viewers to engage in critical thinking by placing characters in situations where they are faced with a choice: support universal values of tolerance and peace or be drawn into the dark world of extremism."
The grant explains that the show needs to be inspiring, and that the characters need to be relatable, so that potential jihadis, hanging around watching television dramas in their spare time between training on the Internet to build bombs, will be able to identify with the young people on screen and see them as "role models" for how to handle the deep and permeating sadness in their soul without strapping on a suicide vest.

Now, honestly, outreach-through-entertainment isn't a horrible idea. After all, after a motorbike, a satellite dish is the most popular "disposable income" purchase even in the third world. And America produces a hell of a lot of television, unfortunately mostly starring people with the last name "Kardashian," that reinforces our status as the world's Great Satan. But it might be too little too late to start drafting Shonda Rhimes into our national security efforts, now that plans are underway to incorporate thousands more refugees into western countries, after they've all been trained in the finer points of C-4 laced apparel-making.

Any question why these people have no fear of us what so ever?

Encouraging & Discouraging Signs of Trump Foreign Policy.

by Larry Johnson
I would not get too wrapped up with the identities and history of the people being named as Trump’s foreign policy advisors. I think he was being totally honest in admitting that he is his number one advisor. And tonight we have seen the good and the bad of Donald Trump.
Let’s start with the “good.” He did something today that I find remarkable and promising. He called for a change in the U.S. relationship with NATO.
Donald Trump outlined an unabashedly noninterventionist approach to world affairs Monday, telling The Washington Post’s editorial board that he questions the need for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, which has formed the backbone of Western security policies since the Cold War: 
“Ukraine is a country that affects us far less than it affects other countries in NATO, and yet we’re doing all of the lifting,” Trump said. “They’re not doing anything. And I say: ‘Why is it that Germany’s not dealing with NATO on Ukraine? Why is it that other countries that are in the vicinity of Ukraine, why aren’t they dealing? Why are we always the one that’s leading, potentially the third world war with Russia.’ “
Trump said that U.S. involvement in NATO may need to be significantly diminished in the coming years, breaking with nearly seven decades of consensus in Washington. “We certainly can’t afford to do this anymore,” Trump said, adding later, “NATO is costing us a fortune, and yes, we’re protecting Europe with NATO, but we’re spending a lot of money.”
You should be clear about one thing–this is the view of Donald Trump. It is not a position he has acquired by listening to some advisor. 
Trump understands as his fundamental position that the United States cannot be running around the world intervening willy nilly. This position scares the hell out of a lot of people and corporations in Washington, DC who have become fabulously wealthy by making money off of wars overseas. It is despicable and evil. Trump, to his credit, is throwing the bullshit flag.
Trump is absolutely right about NATO. It is an anachronism. It is akin to insisting that every car must be equipped with a buggy whip. The countries of Europe need to accept responsibility for their own defense. We are not nor should we be their parent or protector. They should be partners.
U.S. policy should be refocused on building partnerships with countries on clearly identified bilateral benefits. I’m listening to Kasich insist that NATO is vital to our ability to fight ISIS. Is he delusional? Where are the NATO boots on the ground battling ISIS? Where are the NATO airstrikes pounding the ISIS positions? It is this kind of old thinking and stupidity that Trump is blowing up. Good on him.
Now for the bad news......

☪ A Foreign Policy Black Comedy ☪

Kerry Seen Leaving Recent  Iranian Negotiations 
Known affectionately here at DMF as the "Earl of Ketchup" and "The Duke of Heinz", John Kerry can now add a  third honor to his  royalist list of titles - "The Prince of Fools" 

Ricochet - You must give John Kerry credit. Who else could play the idiot with a straight face like he can. Again, he knocked me to the floor with a comment so devoid of intelligence, so totally inane as to astound beyond all credence. Truly he is the Prince of Fools.
"U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said a speech by Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei on Saturday vowing to defy American policies in the region despite a deal with world powers over Tehran’s nuclear program was “very troubling.”
“I don’t know how to interpret it at this point in time, except to take it at face value, that that’s his policy,” he said in the interview with Saudi-owned Al Arabiya television.
“But I do know that often comments are made publicly and things can evolve that are different. If it is the policy, it’s very disturbing, it’s very troubling.....” 
The man has just concluded a complete major treaty with the Iranians. The administration just ran to the U.N. so they could lift vitally important sanctions from Iran, giving them the green light for further aggression. They did this before Congress, as agreed, could have a say, and as if the Congressional right to ratify treaties, under the Constitution, were something that could be waved. Now, he’s “disturbed” that the hideous tyrannical regime with which he’s been negotiating for years is just what it appears: a lawless monster intent on the destruction of America, Israel, and any rival in the Middle East.

“If it is the policy, it’s very disturbing, it’s very troubling.”
The Supreme Leader of an absolute theocratic dictatorship publicly announced this, to mass rallies, and Kerry says “If it is the policy.” He’s just given away the store at the U.N., and now, a few days later, he is very disturbed and troubled.

Absolutely amazing! This is for the Idiot Olympics. Kerry is in a class by himself.

Jimmy Carter's Biggest Blunder

America's 2nd Worst Presidency Continues to Haunt Us

May people today are unaware the most difficult and brilliant feat of engineering in modern times, one which cost an estimated 32,000 plus lives and almost 100 years from conception to finish  is no longer in American Control.   One of the crowning achievements of the the Presidency of Theodore Roosevelt , a strategic  tool in the defense of America and the western hemisphere and a vital weapon in the winning of World War 2 was signed over to new owner by that brilliant Statesman, the 39th president, Jimmy Carter. 

On  October 1, 1979 Carter signed the Torrijos-Carter Treaty, which set in motion the process of handing over the Panama canal to Panamanian control  and providing for a twenty-year period during which Panama would have increasing responsibilities for Canal operations, culminating in complete U.S. withdrawal on 31 December 1999, during the presidency of  Bill Clinton. 

The treaty was highly controversial, and its passage was difficult. The controversy was largely caused by contracts to manage two ports at either end of the canal, which were awarded by Panama to a Hong Kong-based conglomerate, Hutchison Whampoa, a  company that has close ties to the the Chinese military.

The Chinese have undertaken more massive construction on the canal and will have a strategic advantage over the west, no ship, commercial or military will be able to pass without being electronically scanned, photographed and spied upon as they move from ocean to ocean. 

The rise of the Chinese navy and control of both ends of the canal will allow free movement of the their navy into the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean for the first time, as well as shutting off the world's easiest means of  commercial and military movement of water traffic in a minutes notice.

Yaps at Take Hillary Clinton to the Woodshed

I love when the left eats it own...

Hillary Clinton made headlineswhen she criticized the Obama administration for its disconnect to the violence against minority populations in Iraq and Syria. As Islamic State terrorists continue their rein of murder and beheadings across the region, the likely 2016 presidential contender took a critical position against Obama’s inaction, specifically regarding Syrian rebels who could have helped suppress the uprising at its infancy.

This from the women who once called Bashar al-Assad of Syria "a reformer"
“The failure to help build up a credible fighting force of the people who were the originators of the protests against Assad – there were Islamists, there were secularists, there was everything in the middle – the failure to do that left a big vacuum, which the jihadists have now filled."
Due to her perceived pro-military stance, fellow leftists have now turned on her., for example, issued a scathing critique of Clinton’s statement on the site Tuesday.

The disparaging declaration seemed to suggest that the former secretary of state would be unelectable in the Democrat Party due to her belief in shutting down terrorist regimes that threaten the U.S. and it allies.

Hillary is just moving right to distance herself from Obama's disastrous foreign policy, and to cover her ineptness as his Secretary of State.

Kerry Continues Theme of Foreign Policy Incompetence

Kerry's newest strategy seems to be: fail at an agreement, then put foot in mouth.

Our bumbling Secretary of State, John Kerry, took his clown act to the Trilateral Commission on Friday, and managed to outrage much of the civilized world by warning that Israel was on the verge of becoming an “apartheid state” if it didn’t give the Palestinians their own nation. 
Earl of Ketchup / Duke of Heinz
“The US secretary of state describes Israel as an apartheid state. Us? The Jewish state that rose to defend itself from existential threats? Kerry, shame on you! There are some words that must not be uttered.” - Yisrael Katz
“If he used the repugnant language of Israel’s adversaries and accusers to express concern for Israel’s future, it was undiplomatic, unwise and unfair.” - Abe Foxman

Hillary Struggles To List Accomplishments During Her Tenure as Secretary of State

Thursday, Hillary Clinton spoke at the Women of the World Summit in New York City and was asked what she was most proud of during her tenure as Secretary of State. Clinton gave vague answers and could not provide any one concrete example of an accomplishment of the administration's foreign policy she holds in high regard.

 Clinton Seen Here Inspecting 21st Century State of the Art Chinese Noodle Technology 

We thought we'd help refresh her memory a bit:

1. Allowed 4 Americans to be brutally  killed in Benghazi.

2. Lost valuable ally as the Muslim Brotherhood takes over Egypt

3. Watched as Military coup replaces Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt

4. Watched as Libya falls into tribal and terrorist factions

5. Stood by as Libyan weapons spread to middle east

6. Stood by as genocide racked Syria, couldn't figure which side to take

7. Allowed Iran to continue development of nuclear weapons

8. Allowed relationship with Israel to deteriorate

9. Allowed Iran’s thugocracy to crush/brutalize people’s protest over elections

10. Allowed North Korea to continue development and testing of nuclear weapons and extort west for food and oil.



Clinton failed to produce any major diplomatic agreements, so what exactly did she do but fly around the world on government aircraft? 

And What's Up With This????
"The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years."

Putin: "I Will Shut Off Russian Prostitute Pipeline"

Middle Finger News Service

Vladimir Putin raised the stakes in the standoff over Ukraine today by threatening to cut off the flow of Russian prostitutes to Europe. Coming one week after the United States imposed sanctions on several officials within his inner-circle, Putin's latest move is leading many to speculate on his mental state.

"This is either a bluff or the man has lost his mind," remarked Garret Frum of the Guardian Newpaper, "The gas we'd expect, but if Putin skips straight to the hookers, that would be a real problem."

Despite having taken measures to reduce their dependence on Russian natural gas in recent years, Europe still imports over 60% of its prostitutes, and nearly 75% of its high-grade prostitutes, from the Russian Federation.

"Most European countries cannot provide for their own prostitute needs because their women either lack adequate exposure to crushing poverty or are too ugly," stated European Commission Francois Lafayette, "This gives Russia the power to cause problems - because they could force men to have sex with Romanian prostitutes or their own wives."

If completely shut off, the loss of the 1 million harems of high-grade Hookers Russia currently supplies the West per year could lead to catastrophic repercussions.

"Such a move would certainly heighten tension throughout the region," Lafayette said, "Tension that would build and build and eventually could cause a sticky situation that's bound to get messy."

The Situation Room Gazebo

During a briefing aboard Air Force One on the way to Florida, Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest ostensibly was making the point that Obama can monitor and handle world events from his gazebo at the Ocean Reef Club on Key Largo. 

W.H. Dossier
"I think the point is that the President over the course of a very busy week has maintained his schedule and his ability to monitor ongoing events in Ukraine. I would anticipate that he’ll do the same thing this weekend. And the fact of the matter is what the President is doing this weekend in Florida is essentially what the President will be doing if he stayed back at the White House. It’s just that the weather will be a little warmer." - Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest

Netanyahu Schools Barack on Mideast Peace

  “What we want is peace – not a piece of paper”

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met with US President Barack Obama in the Oval Office on Monday, pushing back against pressure from the White House to swiftly cut a deal with the Palestinians as the president warned time was running out for peace.
“Israel has been doing its part, and I regret to say that the Palestinians haven’t,” Netanyahu said to Obama, in front of the press. “The people of Israel know that it’s the case.”
“What we want is peace – not a piece of paper,” he said.
Netanyahu called for a “real peace… based on mutual recognition,” and chided his Palestinian counterparts for promoting “incessant violence” against the Jewish state.
“Israel, the Jewish state, is the realization of the Jewish people’s right to self-determination,” Netanyahu said. “I think it’s about time they recognized a nation state for the Jewish people. The time frame that we have set up for completing these negotiations is coming near and some tough decisions are going to have to be made." 
"We’ve only been here for about 4,000 years.”
