Colluding with America’s enemy? Dianne Feinstein dines with Iranian minister

Demorats are always kissing up to America’s enemies…

From NY Post: Sen. Dianne Feinstein met with the Iranian foreign minister for dinner even as the Trump administration sent an aircraft carrier strike group to the region to respond to the Islamic Republic’s threats against US forces in the Middle East.

Feinstein, who sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee, met with Javad Zarif a few weeks ago when he was in the US, Politico reported on Thursday.

The California Democrat said the dinner was “arranged in consultation with the State Department.”

”The office was in touch with State in advance of the meeting to let them know it was happening and to get an update on U.S.-Iran activity,” Feinstein’s office said.

Zarif worked with former Secretary of State John Kerry on the 2015 nuclear deal brokered by the Obama administration with the country and other global powers — including Russia, France, England and China.
President Trump, who withdrew from the accord in May 2018, has accused Kerry of continuing to have conversations with Iran and said he should be prosecuted for violating the Logan Act.

Asked about Feinstein’s meeting with Zarif, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blasted the senator and Kerry for engaging Iran. ”These acts border — we all know the Logan Act — we all know the risks that is taken when people act as private citizens on behalf of the United States government,” Pompeo said during an interview on “Fox and Friends.”

The Logan Act, which was enacted in 1799, forbids private citizens from communicating with a foreign government having a dispute with the US. No one has ever been prosecuted under it.

The Trump administration, responding to Iranian threats against US forces in the Middle East, deployed the USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier strike group and B-52 bombers to the region earlier this month.
Pentagon officials are expected to brief members of the administration’s national security team Thursday on plans to send 10,000 troops to the Middle East to counter the threats, the Associated Press reported.

Crocodile tears: Hillary Clinton & John Kerry bemoan Europe is crushed by migrants

The Left really are a breed apart in their hypocricy and malevolence.

First, they promote mass “immigration” of Muslims and other Third Worlders into Europe and America.

Then, when the predictable social problems ensue, they wring their hands in distraught and cry crocodile tears.

Recall that George Soros, whose foundations actively facilitate migrants and “refugees”, wept crocodile tears over Europe being on the verge of collapse. Then we have European Jewish intellectuals, who had pushed for Muslim immigration into Europe, now urging Jews to leave Europe.

Now, two of the biggest promoters of mass immigration are making tsk-tsk noises about Europe being “crushed” and “roiling” from “migration”.

 Hillary Clinton

In an interview with The Guardian, Hillary lectured to European leaders that they must “get a handle on migration” that is “roiling the body politics” because migration “is what lit the flame” of “the bread and circuses” of rightwing populism that poses “a serious threat to our freedom and our democratic institutions.”

She said back-handedly that although “I admire the very generous and compassionate approaches that were taken particularly by leaders like Angela Merkel, but I think it is fair to say Europe has done its part, and must send a very clear message – ‘we are not going to be able to continue provide refuge and support’ – because if we don’t deal with the migration issue it will continue to roil the body politic.”

John Kerry

John Kerry, who took over from Hillary as Obama’s secretary of state, also lamented to The Guardian: “Look at Europe! Europe’s already crushed under this transformation that’s taken place because of immigration.”

Kerry also wrung his hands about Donald Trump dismantling the Paris climate agreement and about the gross inequality in America where “Fifty-one per cent of the income of America going to 1% of Americans.”

But, as The Guardian points out, Kerry and his second wife, Teresa Heinz, themselves are exalted members of the top 1%:

According to a 2015 New Yorker profile, between them they own at least six properties, including a 23-room mansion in Georgetown, Washington DC, and a 90-acre farm outside Pittburgh in Pennsylvania, as well as a 23-metre (76ft), $7m (£5.4m) sailboat called Isabel. “We’ve got to make America fair again. You gotta make things work for working folks so they can pay their bills and send their kids to school, reach the brass ring, retire in dignity, have healthcare – the priorities are pretty clear, in my judgment. We need infrastructure. Desperately. We need to start rebuilding America,” he says.

Bruce Springsteen releases anti-Trump song

bruce-springsteen

Love can conquer hate…


Oh goody. I’ve never bought any of his music and won’t start now.
From Yahoo: Rock legend Bruce Springsteen has denounced US President Donald Trump as a “conman” as he collaborated on a new protest song released Wednesday.
Joe Grushecky, a Pittsburgh-based heartland rocker who has worked in the past with Springsteen but has had much less commercial success, titled his song “That’s What Makes Us Great” — a play on Trump’s campaign slogan “Make America Great Again.”
An energetic rock tune that sounds like it could have come from Springsteen’s E Street Band, the song halfway through features The Boss singing verses on his own. “Don’t you brag to me that you never read a book / I never put my faith in a conman and his crooks,” Springsteen sings in clear reference to Trump.
Springsteen and Grushecky come together for a chorus that urges mobilization against Trump. “It’s up to me and you / Love can conquer hate / I know this to be true / That’s what makes us great,” they sing.
While the song is not his own, it marks some of the most overtly political lyricism of Springsteen’s career alongside “American Skin (41 Shots”) about New York police officers’ 1999 killing of unarmed immigrant Amadou Diallo.
Springsteen — whose songs have often told the plight of working-class Americans of the type who provided crucial support to Trump — largely stayed out of direct politics until 2004 when he campaigned for John Kerry in his failed bid to defeat president George W. Bush.
In November, Springsteen joined Hillary Clinton in a major election-eve rally in Philadelphia, where he denounced Trump for his “profound lack of decency,” and later played a somber, private show for Barack Obama’s staff as they left the White House.
Grushecky told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that he wrote the song around the time that Trump took office and that he sent it to Springsteen, who liked it and agreed to give it “the Bruce treatment.”
Grushecky said he had been outraged by Trump since the time the tycoon mocked a journalist with disabilities. “That to me is appalling. I have special needs people in my family and in my neighborhood. I worked with special needs people my whole life, and I was really offended by it,” he told the newspaper.
Wonder if Grushecky wrote a song after Obama’s Special Olympic joke? I’m being sarcastic, of course.

FBI confirms U.S. has a shadow government

According to Melissa Dykes of Activist Post, reportedly Bill Clinton once told senior White House reporter Sarah McClendon:

“Sarah, there’s a government inside the government, and I don’t control it.”

[Note: Some attribute the quote to George Herbert Walker Bush.]
Call it “deep state,” “secret government,” “double government” or “shadow government,” the terms all refer to more or less the same thing — that representative government in the U.S. is an illusion because we are actually ruled by a shadowy, unelected group of élites.
So who make up the shadow government?
One view is that the CIA initially formed America’s secret government. After 1981, it morphed into the “deep state” — an amalgamation of private corporations and enterprises, the media, telecommunications and social media which run most of the U.S. government from behind the scenes. (See “The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, CIA, and America’s deep-state secret government“)
A more prosaic and less bombastic view of the shadow government is the Administrative State — the vast federal government bureaucracies staffed by unelected, faceless officials who, in “administering” the U.S. government, effectively are the government because they make the myriad of  administrative rules and regulations that implement the vague policies devised by Congress. In so doing, those faceless officials wield power over every facet of our lives. (See “America is ruled by an unelected double government“)
The Powers That Be - deep state
Now a recent dump of FBI’s files on the Hillary Clinton investigation reveals there really is a shadow government.
On October 17, 2016, the FBI issued nearly 100 new pages of notes and interview summaries concerning the Bureau’s decision not to launch a criminal charge against former secretary of state Hillary Clinton over her use of an unsecured email server. The FBI documents include an interview with an unnamed individual, who claimed that Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests related to Clinton went through a powerful group called the 7th Floor Group or the Shadow Government. Here’s page 56 of the FBI document:

There was a powerful group of very high-ranking STATE [State Department] officials that some referred to as ‘The 7th Floor Group’ or ‘The Shadow Government.’ This group met every Wednesday afternoon to discuss the FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) process. Congressional records, and everything CLINTON-related to FOIA/Congressional inquiries. The known regular attendees included Jonathan FINER, Chief of Staff for Secretary of State John KERRY, Jennifer STOUT, Deputy Chief of Staff, Heather HIGGINBOTTOM, Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources, [Patrick] KENNEDY, Julia FRIFIELD, Assistant Secretary, Legislative Affairs, [REDACTED] Office of the Legal Adviser, [REDACTED] Office of the Legal Adviser overseeing STATE’s [REDACTED] and [REDACTED].

Here’s a screenshot of page 56 (h/t Activist Post):
fbi-files-on-clinton-investigation-pg-56
The FBI issued the document containing the “7th floor group” on October 17. By October 19, two days later, someone had already posted an entry on “7th floor group” on Wikipedia, which says:

The 7th floor refers to the 7th floor of the Harry S Truman Building in Washington, DC, which acts as the office building for the US State Department, and contains a 7th floor that has no windows. […]
The 7th Floor Group is said to regularly discuss FOIA processes and Congressional records. Hillary Clinton’s office was located on the 7th Floor of the US State Department Headquarters, where she met with her top advisers, Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, and others. […] Currently, the 7th Floor Group meets on Wednesdays, which includes Secretary of State John Kerry, Deputy Chief of Staff Jennifer Park Stout, Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources Heather Higginbottom, Under Secretary for Management Patrick F. Kennedy, Assistant Secretary of State Julia Frifield, and members of the Office of the Legal Adviser.

Does he look like the shadow government to you?

Does he look like the shadow government to you?


I don’t believe the 7th Floor Group is America’s actual shadow government, and certainly not the deep state. From its membership, the 7th Floor Group appears to be a collection of mid-level State Department officials. They are mere flunkies, just a step above we the little people — the public faces behind whom are the real powers that be. Like all puppeteers, those in the shadow government operate strictly behind the curtains.
Of course, talk of a shadow government immediately identifies you as a “conspiracy theory” nutcase, to be mocked, derided and dismissed.
By the way, did you know that it was the CIA who, in 1967, coined the label “conspiracy theory” to discredit anyone who raised questions about the official narrative of the JFK assassination?

Why it's not illegal to hack those WikiLeaks emails

In recent days, the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton have made bombastic threats of cyber-attacking Russia because they claim Russia had hacked into those DNC, Hillary and Podesta emails released by WikiLeaks, which are embarrassing and damaging to Hillary’s presidential ambitions.

See “Who really hacked the WikiLeaks emails? – Russia, Romania or the CIA?


However, neither Hillary nor the Obama administration has given any evidence that Russia is the hacker, although that hasn’t stopped the media whores from  parroting that allegation as truth. Indeed of solid evidence of Russia’s hacking, what the administration said in its press release on this matter is that the U.S. intelligence community merely “is confident” that the Russian government is the hacker.
In other words, the U.S. is prepared to instigate a likely World War III by going to war — cyber or military — against Russia based on the CIA’s vague sense of “confidence”.
Donald Trump pointed that out in the second 2016 presidential debate on October 9. In response to Hillary saying “Our intelligence community just came out and said in the last few days that the Kremlin, meaning Putin and the Russian government, are directing the attacks, the hacking on American accounts to influence our election,” Trump stated a simple truth:

“She doesn’t know if it’s the Russians doing the hacking.”

Hillary’s media whore, CNN’s Chris Cuomo, even declared that we must not read those emails because “it’s illegal to possess [and read] these stolen documents” — which is rich, coming from Cuomo who had openly admitted that the media are whole-hog for lawless Hillary, saying “We couldn’t help her any more than we have, she’s got just a free ride so far from the media, we’re the biggest ones promoting her campaign.”
In other words, it’s illegal only when we the little people do it, but it’s okay for Hillary to conduct business as U.S. secretary of state with an unsecured email server, in direct violation of State Department rules and U.S. law.
Instead of reading those hacked emails ourselves — which is “illegal”! — Cuomo says we are to rely on media whores like him to read those emails — which is legal! — and tell us what’s in those emails. But as UCLA law professor Eugene Volokh pointed out, “The First Amendment offers the same protection to the media as to the rest of us…, the media has no more First Amendment rights than the rest of us.”
But is possession (and reading) of the hacked emails by us little people really illegal?
William Dunkerley, a media business analyst and the author of Ukraine in the Crosshairs (2014 Omnicom Press) and Litvinenko Murder Case Solved (2015 Omnicom Press), maintains that the hacked emails are not stolen because they are in the public domain because no one owns them. And since the emails are not owned by anyone, how then can they be stolen?
In an article for Russia Insider on Oct. 18, 2016, Dunkerley writes:

The issue here is whether or not any documents were stolen. Some suggest that they instead have been leaked by an insider. But no evidence of a leak has been presented.
The overarching issue, however, is that there is no legitimate legal theory under which the documents could have been stolen. Here’s why. For something to have been stolen there must be an owner from whom it was stolen. The fact is that no one had legal ownership of those State Department documents.
On the surface that may sound preposterous. They were indeed State Department documents after all.
But nothing was taken physically. No papers were removed from any premises or taken away from any person. What’s at issue here is “intellectual property.” The body of law that deals with content such as the emails in question is US Copyright Law. It allows a person or organization to own intellectual property.
That law does not protect the emails in question, though. That’s because the law specifically exempts content produced by federal government employees as a part of their jobs. It is considered to be in the public domain. There is no owner. There is no one to have stolen from.
Then there is the question of why the Clinton campaign is focused on whomever or however the emails were obtained. If the Russians had done the hacking, and for all I know they very well may have, why is Russia being blamed for the publication?
Isn’t the publication of the emails the source of Clinton’s embarrassment? Why isn’t Wikileaks the focus of Hillary’s angst? If Russia had just put hacked emails in a vault, would the Clinton campaign be so aggrieved?
That points to the essence of this whole Russian hacking story. It really doesn’t matter who got the ball rolling. It’s the publication of the emails that hurts. And the publication of public domain content does not infringe anyone’s copyright.
I suspect that Russia is being targeted as part of a provocation. Even the use of the word “stolen” is pejorative.

Which then explains why the Obama administration is instrumental in cutting off WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange’s Internet connection. (See “The Evil Empire strikes back: WikiLeaks’ Internet connection severed; RT’s bank accounts frozen“)
On October 16, Assange’s Internet service was intentionally cut off by “a state actor,” identified by WikiLeaks as the government of Ecuador. Assange has been holed up in the Ecuador embassy in London for the past 4 years.
wikileaks-tweet
On October 18, WikiLeaks tweeted that they were told by “multiple U.S. sources” that the Obama administration had pressured Ecuador to sever Assange’s Internet connection:
wikileaks-tweet-on-john-kerry“FARC peace negotiations” refers to the ongoing negotiations between the Columbian government and the country’s largest Marxist rebel group — the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (in Spanish, Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia or FARC), a guerrilla movement in the continuing 5-decades long Colombian armed conflict since 1964.
An article on wsws.org makes an interesting observation:

Whether the State Department [John Kerry] was the only entity placing pressure on Ecuador on behalf of the Clinton campaign, or whether Wall Street also intervened directly, is unclear. The timing of the Internet cutoff, in the immediate aftermath of the release of Clinton’s Goldman Sachs speeches, may be more than coincidental.
In the spring of 2014, the government of Ecuador agreed to transfer more than half of its gold reserves to Goldman Sachs Group Inc. for three years, in an attempt to raise cash to cover a growing deficit brought on by the collapse in oil prices. It reportedly sent 466,000 ounces of gold to Goldman Sachs, worth about $580 million at the time, in return for “high security” financial instruments and an anticipated profit on its investment. It is hardly a stretch of the imagination to believe that such a relationship would give Goldman Sachs considerable leverage in relation to the Ecuadorian government.
In any case, it is evident that the US ruling establishment is growing increasingly desperate to stanch the flow of previously secret emails and documents that are exposing the real character not only of Clinton […]
The transcripts of Clinton’s speeches to Goldman Sachs and other top banks and employers’ groups, for which she was paid on average $200,000 per appearance, are the most incriminating. They expose the workings of the oligarchy that rules America and the thinking and actions of a politician prepared to do anything to advance the interests of this ruling stratum, while simultaneously accruing ever greater riches and power for herself.
While on the campaign trail, Clinton has postured as a “progressive,” determined to hold Wall Street’s feet to the fire. But in her speeches to Goldman Sachs, she made clear her unconditional defense of the banks and financial houses. Under conditions of popular outrage against the bankers and their role in dragging millions into crisis in the financial meltdown of 2008, Clinton gave speeches praising the Wall Street financiers and insisting that they were best equipped to regulate themselves. She apologized to them for supporting the toothless Dodd-Frank financial regulatory law, saying that it had to be enacted for “political reasons.”
In front of her Wall Street audiences, Clinton made clear she had no inhibitions about ordering mass slaughter abroad. While telling her public audiences that she supports a “no-fly zone” in Syria as a humanitarian measure to save lives, she confidentially acknowledged to her Goldman Sachs audience that such an action is “going to kill a lot of Syrians” and become “an American and NATO involvement where you take a lot of civilians.” In the same speech she declared her willingness to bomb Iran.
The emails have laid bare the nexus of corrupt connections between the State Department, the Clinton Foundation, her various campaigns and her network of financial and corporate donors, which together constitute a quasi-criminal influence-peddling enterprise that could best be described as “Clinton, Inc.”
The revelations contained in the WikiLeaks material have been ignored or downplayed by the corporate media, which instead has focused unrelentingly on the charges of sexual misconduct leveled against Clinton’s Republican rival, Donald Trump.

The Evil Empire strikes back: WikiLeaks' Internet connection severed; RT's bank accounts frozen

WikiLeaks has been releasing to the public successive batches of damaging emails of first, the Democratic National Committee; then, Hillary Clinton’s emails when she was secretary of state; and currently, the emails of John Podesta, the chair of Hillary’s presidential campaign.
To say that those revealing emails are embarrassing and damaging for the Democrats and Hillary in particular, is an understatement.
So Hillary and her minions are furiously trying to contain the damage.
The Evil Empire strikes back.

Strike One

On August 31, 2016, Hillary Clinton threatened Russia with war. Accusing Russia of “hacking into the Democratic National Committee and even some state election systems,” she said:

“So we’ve got to step up our game, make sure we are well defended and able to take the fight to those who go after us. As President, I will make it clear that United States will treat cyber attacks just like any other attack. We will be ready with serious political, economic, and military responses.

Strike TWO

On the morning of October 12, 2016, CNN’s Chris Cuomo threatened the American people that we shouldn’t read the leaked WikiLeaks emails because “it’s illegal to possess these stolen documents” — which is rich, coming from Cuomo who had openly admitted that the media are whole-hog for lawless Hillary, saying “We couldn’t help her any more than we have, she’s got just a free ride so far from the media, we’re the biggest ones promoting her campaign.”
Cuomo then said “It’s different for the media,” i.e., it’s okay for the media to “possess these stolen documents”. So, instead of reading the WikiLeaks emails for ourselves, we should just rely on him and other MSM journalists to tell us what those emails say, “so that everything you learn about this, you’re learning from us.”
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_X16_KzX1vE
What Cuomo said is nothing less than unconstitutional.
Writing for The Washington Post, UCLA law professor Eugene Volokh cites the Supreme Court’s decision in 2001’s Bartnicki v. Vopper:

“The First Amendment offers the same protection to the media as to the rest of us, including when it comes to possessing or distributing illegally obtained material (so long as you weren’t involved in the original illegal hack or interception or leak)…. But in any event, remember that, whatever First Amendment rules may apply, the media has no more First Amendment rights than the rest of us.”

Strike THREE

Last night (Oct. 16), the Alternative Media was alit with rumor that WikiLeaks co-founder and editor-in-chief Julian Assange had died.
What triggered the rumor was WikiLeaks‘ activation of “dead man switch” — decryption keys (like passwords) for three sets of files: on John Kerry,  on Ecuador, and a third file on the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO).
WikiLeaks quickly put the rumor to rest with a tweet that they had activated the “dead man switch” contingency plan after Assange’s Internet service was intentionally cut off by a state actor — the government of Ecuador.
wikileaks-tweetwikileaks-tweet
RT reports this morning:

The internet is one of the few, if not only, available ways for Julian Assange, who has been locked up in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London for more than four years [since 2012], to maintain contact with the outside world. […]
The unverified claims of state sabotage come as WikiLeaks continues to release damaging documents, most recently thousands of hacked emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta.
Earlier this month, Assange claimed his organization would aim to publish documents “every week” in the run up to US Election Day on November 8.
Clinton’s campaign has made unsubstantiated claims that WikiLeaks is working with the Russian government to help defeat the Democrat in favor of Trump.
Last week the FBI reissued a statement saying it was working to “determine the accuracy, nature and scope” of cyber intrusions, but did not name any suspected perpetrators.
The ninth release of Podesta emails occurred on Sunday, bringing the total number of leaked files to over 12,000.
Among the hundreds of emails released are discussions about Clinton’s appeal among black voters, her email apologies, and Chelsea Clinton being described by one of her father’s longtime aides as a ‘backstabber’.
The batch also comes amid revelations of Clinton’s cozy relationship with the mainstream media, and how they work closely to control the media landscape and set up stories that show her in a favorable light.
Earlier this month, it emerged that Hillary Clinton reportedly wanted to “drone” WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange when she was the US secretary of state.
According to True Pundit, Clinton and the State Department were under pressure to silence the whistleblower in the months before WikiLeaks dumped some 250,000 diplomatic cables from 1966 to 2010, dubbed CableGate.
Unidentified State Department sources claimed Clinton asked “can’t we just drone this guy?”.

Strike FOUR

RT, formerly known as Russia Today, broadcasts 24-hours a day in English, Arabic and Spanish, but is primarily aimed at audiences in Europe and the United States, providing news, information and analyses that the MSM will not report.
RT has a British outlet called RT UK that broadcasts from London.
Today, as reported by AFP, in a tweet, RT‘s editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan said that all of RT’s bank accounts in Britain have been closed down. “They have closed our accounts in Britain. All the accounts.” She said the RT channel had received a ruling that “cannot be reviewed,” adding sarcastically, “Long live freedom of speech,” but gave no further details.
How any American can support and vote for Hillary Clinton is utterly beyond my comprehension.

UPDATE (Oct. 18, 2016):

In a tweet today, WikiLeaks identified the Obama administration as the “state actor” behind the cutting of Assange’s Internet connection. In the words of the tweet:

“Multiple U.S. sources tell us [U.S. Secretary of State] John Kerry asked Ecuador to stop Assange from publishing Clinton docs during FARC peace negotiations.”

“FARC peace negotiations” refers to negotiations between the Columbian government and the country’s largest Marxist rebel group — the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (in Spanish, Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia or FARC), a guerrilla movement in the continuing 5-decades long Colombian armed conflict since 1964.

US further eases Iran sanctions after nuclear deal

O laughs
From Yahoo: The Obama administration is further easing sanctions on Iran, making it easier for foreign firms to do business with the country following last year’s nuclear deal.
Shortly before 6 p.m. Friday at the start of the Columbus Day holiday weekend in the United States, the Treasury Department published new guidance for businesses that said some previously prohibited dollar transactions with Iran by offshore banking institutions are allowed as long as they do not enter the U.S. financial system.
The clarifications from Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control also remove a blanket ban on foreign transactions with Iranian firms that may be controlled by a person who remains subject to U.S. sanctions.
Despite the nuclear agreement, which gave sanctions relief to Iran in return for it curtailing its nuclear program, the U.S. maintains sanctions on Iran and certain Iranian companies and people. They are known as “specially designated nationals” or SDNs, for a variety of reasons, including its ballistic missile program, human rights record and support for groups the U.S. deems to be terrorist organizations.
The new Treasury language says foreign transactions with non-sanctioned entities that are nonetheless “minority owned” or “controlled in whole or in part by an Iranian or Iran-related person on the SDN list” are “not necessarily sanctionable” under U.S. regulations.
Friday’s steps by the Treasury come amid growing complaints from Iran that it is not getting the sanctions relief it deserves under the nuclear deal because remaining U.S. sanctions have scared foreign companies from doing business in or with the country. The U.S. insists it has met its obligations and blamed Iranian behavior for the reluctance of foreign companies do to business in Iran. At the same time, it has sought to reassure foreign companies that certain transactions with Iran will no longer be subject to U.S. sanctions.

Secretary of State John Kerry: The Bible commands us to confront 'climate change' and especially protect Muslims

On September 3, 2014, at a ceremony to appoint Texas lawyer Shaarik Zafar to be special representative to Muslim communities, Secretary of State John Kerry claimed that Scripture, in particular the Book of Genesis, says it is the United States’ “responsibility” to “confront climate change” and to especially protect Muslims from its effects.
In the video snippet below, Kerry says:

“When Shaarik started drafting the U. S. strategy on religious leader and faith community engagement, he began with two words: Religion matters. We’re making that a mantra here in the State Department, in our foreign policy. Our [U.S. and Muslims] fates are inextricably linked on any number of things that we must confront and deal with in policy concepts today. Our fates are inextricably linked on the environment. For many of us, respect for God’s creation also translates into a duty to protect and sustain his first creation — Earth, the planet. Before God created man, he created heavens and earth. Confronting climate change is in the long run one of the greatest challenges that we face, and you can see this duty or responsibility laid out in Scriptures, clearly, beginning in Genesis. And Muslim-majority countries are among the most vulnerable. Our response to this challenge ought to be rooted in a sense of stewardship for Earth. And for me and for many of us today, that responsibility comes from God.”


There are so many things wrong with Kerry’s speech, I’m at a loss where to begin. Here are some:

  1. “Religion matters”? By their behavior and in countless ways, the Obama administration makes clear that the only “religion” that “matters” is Islam. As an example: of the 12,587 Syrian refugees “resettled” in the U.S. in fiscal year 2016, 99.2% (or 12,486) are Muslims. Only 0.5% (or 68) are Christians. (CNS News)
  2. Where in the Bible does it say that Earth is God’s “first creation”?
  3. There was no Islam and no Muslims when the Bible was written, for good reason, as Islam was founded more than half a century after Christ.
  4. There is no mention of “climate change” anywhere in the Bible.
  5. How are Muslim-majority countries — most of which are desert countries — “most vulnerable” to “climate change”? Mark my words: Kerry is preparing the groundwork for Muslim countries to demand “reparations” for being victims of “climate change”. See “Third World countries want more than $10oB a year as ‘climate change’ reparations“.
  6. And lastly, there is no man-made “climate change” or what used to called “global warming”. The global warming Nazis switched their terminology to “climate change” because scientific data show there has been no global warming in the past 10 years and more. (See “UK’s national weather service: Global cooling for last 10 years”.) In fact, because of the lack of solar activity, solar scientists now say there will be another Little Ice Age in 2030. The last one was 300 years ago. (Independent)

YouTube commenter streetrace442 says it best:

“Really?  This coming from the very party who one, doesn’t believe the Bible. Two: Believes God can be voted out of existence. Three: Doesn’t believe He exist to begin with. Four: Never has read the Bible.”

By “Believes God can be voted out of existence,” streetrace442 was referring to the 2012 Democratic National Convention when, in a voice vote, the delegates thrice voted to exclude any mention of God from the Democratic Party platform.

Iran gives medals for capture of U.S. Navy soldiers

Of course they did.
iran-sailor-hostages
Earlier this month Iran captured U.S. Navy soldiers in their boats in the Persian Gulf. Iran released our soldiers amidst praise from John “I served time in Vietnam” Kerry. He said, “we can all imagine how a similar situation might have played out three or four years ago.”
Kerry & Hanoi Jane
Reuter’s reported yesterday that Iran’s supreme leader awarded medals to navy commanders for capturing U.S. sailors who entered Iranian territorial waters, Iran’s state media said on Sunday.
Apparently the U.S. giving Iran the power to make nuclear weapons and $1 BILLION isn’t enough to make them happy with us.
