Director of National Intelligence James Clapper contradicts John Kerry, Says 2014 Deadliest Year for Terror Ever Recorded
ARE YOU KIDDING ME, WHO FEELS SAFE FROM TERRORISM WITH THE JV IN THE WHITE HOUSE?
Less than 24 hours after Secretary of State John Kerry told a Foreign Affairs and State Department budget hearing that, “we are actually living in a period of less daily threat to Americans and to people in the world than normally— less deaths, less violent deaths today than through the last century,” Director of National Intelligence James Clapper contradicted Kerry in a major way. It turns out according to Director Clapper that we are not safer than any time in the last century. As it turns out, 2014 was the deadliest year for terror, EVER!!!
“When the final accounting is done. 2014 will be the most lethal year in global terrorism in the 45 years such data has been compiled. About half of all attacks including fatalities in 2014 occurred in just three countries, Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan.”
Fox News Martha MacCallum could only muster the following in stunned bewilderment, “I guess John Kerry did not get that message.”
Secretary of State John Kerry: Despite ISIS, “We Are Actually Living In A Period Of Less Daily Threat To Americans”
OK AMERICA, WHO HONESTLY BELIEVES THE FOLLOWING WORDS FROM JOHN “FRAUD” KERRY …
UNREAL … Barack Obama’s Secretary of State said the following yesterday, “Our citizens, our world today is actually, despite ISIL, despite the visible killings that you see and how horrific they are”. The partisan hack politician went on to say, we have had “less deaths, less violent deaths today than through the last century.” HUH, GO FIGURE. So in 1915 we had more terrorist threats and deaths than in 2015? Who feels safer today than they did 6 or 7 years ago? That’s it America, don’t believe your lying eyes, believe John Kerry.
What page from Saul Alinsky’s ‘Rules for Radicals’ does this come from … “If you lie to the people long enough, it because the truth. Especially with a complicit liberal propaganda media.
Maybe Kerry should have said, dating back to the time when President Jimmy Carter unleashed the radical Islam with the fall of the Shah of Iran in 1979?
SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN KERRY: And frankly – and last thing, this is counterintuitive but it’s true: Our citizens, our world today is actually, despite ISIL, despite the visible killings that you see and how horrific they are, we are actually living in a period of less daily threat to Americans and to people in the world than normally— less deaths, less violent deaths today than through the last century. And so even the concept of state war has changed in many people’s minds, and we’re seeing now more asymmetrical kinds of struggles.
You have heard of “cash for clunkers, now comes … “Jobs for Jihadis”. Check out the below video of Dana Loesch mocking the Obama White House and State Department spokesperson Marie Harf’s comments that it is because ISIS lacks jobs and opportunities as to the reason why they are terrorists and barbarically slaughter Christians in the Middle East … #Jobs for Jihadis. However, wouldn’t one of the issues be that the Jihadis would not be interest in Obama’s “green” job agenda, the radical Islamists are more interested in blood “red” ones.
Watch and enjoy … remember when SNL used to have sarcastic humor of real life events like this? I wonder if this humor is too nuanced for State Department spokesperson Marie Harf?
State Department SPOX Marie Harf Trying to Defend Her ‘JOBS FOR JIHADISTS” Comments … Quotes the GWB Doctrine
GOOD GRIEF, STATE DEPT SPOX IS STILL TRYING TO DEFEND HER JOBS FOR JIHADISTS COMMENTS … WHO IS THE JV?
State Department SPOX Marie Harf goes on the defensive and tells us that we are just not smart enough to understand what she said … Marie Harf to Critics: Maybe My Comments Were ‘Too Nuanced’ for you. Looks like the MSM is giving Harf another opportunity to explain her ridiculous comments. That’s correct, Harf defends her “JOBS FOR JIHADISTS” comments. What else is the liberal Democrat media complex to do. Harf appeared with Wolf Blitzer on CNN’s The Situation Room and attempted to clarify her point. Sorry, did I just hear Harf repeat the following, “We cannot kill every terrorist around the world, nor should we try.” NOR SHOULD WE TRY? NOR SHOULD WE TRY!!!
Maybe Barack Obama will create a new government program, Welfare and Food Stamps for terrorist.
“I’m not the first person to say something like this,” Harf said. “Military commanders that we’ve had throughout many years here fighting this war on terrorism have said the exact same thing, that in the short term when there’s a threat like ISIL. We’ll take direct military action against these terrorists. We have done that. We are doing that in Iraq and Syria. But longer term, we have to look at how we combat the conditions that can lead people to turn to extremism.”
Unbelievable, she is quoting George W. Bush and the Bush doctrine. This from the same Obama administration that has had nothing good to say about GWB and his handling of the war on terror. Barack Obama has tried to distance himself from w, and change everything and anything away from Bush … now when backed into a corner because of so-called “nuanced” comments, they turn to GWB to defend their foreign policy. ARE YOU KIDDING? You know the Obama administration has hit rock bottom when they need W for help.
State Department spokesperson Harf tries to put the toothpaste back in the tube as she goes on the defensive regarding her ignorant comments. Check out the Twitter-fest at Twitchy as Harf is just making matters worse trying to defend her foolish comments. Hey Ms. Harf, backpedaling from beyond stupid comments is like quicksand, the more you try, the worse it gets. Get this, for the past 6 years and two years prior to that campaigning for president, Barack Obama distanced himself and trashed George W. Bush for his handled the war on terror, now his administration is quoting Bush and appealing to the Bush Doctrine.
Marie Harf - @marieharf
Jobs programs don’t quite cut it when you’re in the 72 virgins business. This is where the administration’s comprehensive denial of the motive forces driving the terrorists is key. They aren’t looking for work. They aren’t looking to get rich. They aren’t looking for early childhood education. They aren’t looking for daycare programs. They’ve got something else on their mind, something else that is taboo to speak of in the higher reaches of the Obama administration.
“I’m not the first person to say something like this,” Harf said this afternoon. “Military commanders that we’ve had throughout many years here fighting this war on terrorism have said the exact same thing, that in the short term when there’s a threat like ISIL. We’ll take direct military action against these terrorists. We have done that. We are doing that in Iraq and Syria. But longer term, we have to look at how we combat the conditions that can lead people to turn to extremism.”
“So you suggested that maybe if you find these young men jobs, they might not become terrorists?” Blitzer asked.
Hey John Kerry, why the long face?
In a new survey, John Kerry was ranked the worst United States Secretary of State in the last 50 years. The results of the 2014 Ivory Tower survey ranked Henry Kissinger the most effective secretary of state with 32.2% of the vote. Yes, the same Henry Kissinger that Code Pink nut-jobs wanted to arrest for war crimes. He was followed by James Baker, Madeleine Albright, and Hillary Clinton, as judged by a survey of 1,615 international relations scholars. Although, I am a bit skeptical of Hillary Clinton being a better Sec. of State than Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powell or George Schultz. Can anyone name one single accomplishment of Hillary Clinton? I didn’t think so.
The results of the 2014 Ivory Tower survey—a collaboration between Foreign Policy and the Teaching, Research, and International Policy (TRIP) project at the College of William & Mary—provide an insider’s guide. Responses from 1,615 IR scholars drawn from 1,375 U.S. colleges and universities determined rankings for the leading Ph.D., terminal master’s, and undergraduate programs in IR. (The scholars were asked to list the top five institutions in each category.) The survey also quizzed respondents about recent historical events and future policy challenges: Just how plausible is a U.S. war with China, for example, and who was the most effective secretary of state over the past 50 years? (Hint: Neither Condoleezza Rice nor John Kerry.)
Code Pink Chants Arrest Kissinger for War Crimes at Senate Armed Services Committee: Sen John McCain (R-AZ) Tells Them “Get Out of Here You Low-life Scum”
Finally, Code Pink called out for what they truly are … ‘Low-Life Scum.”
Yesterday’s Senate Armed Services Committee hearing with former Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger, Madeleine Albright, and George Shultz. was interrupted by protesters from “Code Pink”. The protesters wanted to arrest the 91 year old, former Secretary of State for War crime. Finally, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) had enough and lashed out at the protesters disrupting the hearing and called them “low-life scum.” McCain apologized to Dr. Henry Kissinger for the protesters actions to a man who served his country with the greatest distinction.
I’ve been a member of this committee for many years, and I have never seen anything as disgraceful and outrageous and despicable as the last demonstration that just took place. You know, you’re going to have to shut up, or I’m going to have you arrested. If we can’t get the Capital Hill Police in here immediately. Get out of here, you low-life scum.
The niceties of Washington went out the window Thursday when protesters disrupted a hearing with Henry Kissinger — and Sen. John McCain went ballistic.
“Get out of here you low-life scum,” proclaimed the Arizona Republican.
The demonstrators were at the Senate Armed Services Committee to go after Kissinger.
“Arrest Henry Kissinger for war crimes!” they screamed, some carrying signs spelling out their hatred of the former secretary of state.
McCain quickly called over Capitol police officers to “instill order.”
“You’re going to have to shut up or I’m going to have you arrested,” McCain told the demonstrators after they disrupted his press conference.

CSPAN – Former Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger, Madeleine Albright, and George Shultz testified at a a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing
UPDATE I: Code Pink Tries to Arrest 91-Year-Old Kissinger for ‘War Crimes,’ Get Smacked Down by 94-Year-Old George Shultz.
Later, when Kissinger began his opening statement, more protesters popped up in the room, screaming about Vietnam and rattling off his “war crimes.”
“Vietnam! From 1969 to 1973, Kissinger, working for Richard Nixon, oversaw the slaughter in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, that led to the deaths of millions — millions of people. Many thousands more died from the effects of massive doses of agent orange and from unexploded bombs that covered the countryside!” a protester shouted. “Chile! Henry Kissinger was one of the principle architects of the coup in Chile on September 11th, 1973…”
Shultz then stood up to verbally battle the protesters, saying, “I salute Henry Kissinger for his many contributions to peace and security.” That led to a standing ovation from the committee members and audience that drowned out Code Pink.
Megyn Kelly Leaves State Department Spox Jen Psaki Speechless After Confronting Her with Obama’s Own Words from Debate Tape with Romney on Troop Withdrawal
BARACK OBAMA, THE LIAR IN CHIEF IN HIS OWN WORDS …
State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki at a loss for words when confronted with Obama’s own words in what he stated during the 2012 Presidential debates against Mitt Romney vs. his comments now. Presented with the facts from Megyn Kelly and the comments from or Leon Panetta, former Defense and CIA director, that “those on our side viewed the White House as so eager to rid itself of Iraq that it was willing to withdraw rather than lock in arrangements that would preserve our influence and interests.”
Mitt Romney: With regards to Iraq, you and I agreed, I believe that there should have been a status of forces agreement… Oh, you didn’t want a status of forces agreement.
Barack Obama: No, what I would not have done was left 10,000 troops in Iraq that would tie us down. That certainly would not help us in the Middle East.

Now we get Barack Obama only blaming Iraq’s Maliki, claiming it was bit his decision.
Ex-State Department Official Raymond Maxwell Claims Hillary Clinton Allies Scrubbed Benghazi Documents in Secret Basement Session … “I asked her, ‘But isn’t that unethical?’ She responded, ‘Ray, those are our orders.’
If the IRS can lose emails to protect Barack Obama, why would it not be believable that the State Department would shred documents to protect Hillary Clinton?
The story is that the State Department shredded of documents before the they were to be seen by the Accountability Review Board. In the basement of the State Department, they were creating two piles of documents, one good for Hillary, the other bad. Guess what happened to the doc that were deemed to shed a bad light on Hillary? Who was present at this “unethical” and illegal document party, Hillary Clinton’s Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills and her Deputy Chief of Staff Jake Sullivan. UNREAL.
But what difference does it make, right Hillary?
Benghazi Bombshell: Fox News Report Sharyl Attkisson’s Exclusive
A former State Department official has told lawmakers that Hillary Clinton allies privately removed politically damaging documents before turning over files to the supposedly independent board investigating the Benghazi terror attack.
The account from Raymond Maxwell, former head of the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs (NEA), was first published in The Daily Signal. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, confirmed to FoxNews.com on Monday that Maxwell told him and other lawmakers the same story when they privately interviewed him last year about the attacks and their aftermath.
Chaffetz said that Maxwell claimed Clinton’s chief of staff and deputy chief of staff were overseeing the document operation, which allegedly took place on a weekend in a basement office of the State Department.
“What they were looking for is anything that made them look bad. That’s the way it was described to us,” Chaffetz said.
According to Chaffetz’ account of his interview with Maxwell, as well as the Daily Signal report by Sharyl Attkisson, Maxwell said those scrubbing the documents were looking for information that would cast Clinton and senior leaders in a “bad light.”
“I was not invited to that after-hours endeavor, but I heard about it and decided to check it out on a Sunday afternoon,” Maxwell says.
He didn’t know it then, but Maxwell would ultimately become one of four State Department officials singled out for discipline—he says scapegoated—then later cleared for devastating security lapses leading up to the attacks. Four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were murdered during the Benghazi attacks.
Maxwell says the weekend document session was held in the basement of the State Department’s Foggy Bottom headquarters in a room underneath the “jogger’s entrance.” He describes it as a large space, outfitted with computers and big screen monitors, intended for emergency planning, and with small offices on the periphery.
When he arrived, Maxwell says he observed boxes and stacks of documents. He says a State Department office director, whom Maxwell described as close to Clinton’s top advisers, was there. Though the office director technically worked for him, Maxwell says he wasn’t consulted about her weekend assignment.
JOHN KERRY SAYS WE ARE AT WAR WITH ISIS, BEFORE WE WERE NOT AT WAR WITH THEM … HEY KERRY, WANT SOME SYRUP WITH THOSE WAFFLES?
In an interview this morning on CBS’s ‘Face the Nation’ Secretary of State Kerry backtracked on the language he had used to describe the fight against ISIS and finally said that, “we are at war” with the terrorist group. Kerry said that he thought there was a kind of tortured debate going on about terminology of war and it was a waste of time to focus on that. Of course it was John Kerry who started the tortured debate by saying that we were were not at war with ISIS. But the backlash was such that now he is forced to flip-flop on the comment. Try getting other countries to commit assets in a war on terror against ISIS if you are not even willing to say it.
Secretary of State John Kerry backtracked on the language he had used to describe the fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, also known as ISIL), saying in an interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday that, “we are at war” with the group.
“I think there’s frankly a kind of tortured debate going on about terminology,” said Kerry, who rejected the word “war” in an interview with CBS News State Department correspondent Margaret Brennan last week and warned that people shouldn’t get “war fever.”
“In terms of al Qaeda, which we have used the word ‘war’ with, yeah…we are at war with al Qaeda and it’s affiliates. And in the same context if you want to use it, yes, we are at war with ISIL in that sense,” Kerry said. “But I think it’s waste of time to focus on that. Frankly, lets consider what we have to do to degrade and defeat ISIL.”
Michael Foley, Brother of Beheaded American Journalist James Foley, Says US State Department Threatened Us
IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE A GOVERNMENT OF, BY AND FOR THE PEOPLE … NOT ONE AGAINST THE PEOPLE!!!
In an exclusive interview with Megyn Kelly last night on ‘The Kelly File’ , Michael Foley, the brother of beheaded American journalist James Foley said that the American State Department threatened him personally. UNREAL. It is one thing for the United States government not to negotiate with terrorists and pay ransoms, but to hinder a family in trying to get their loved one back, at any cost, so-to-speak. It’s not like Obama was busy trying to secure Foley’s release. He was too busy on vacation and golfing.
Kelly: I’m wondering if you feel he [Obama] and the administration did all they could to get Jim back.
Foley: No, no. We’re appalled by the situation and you know, it went past not doing everything they could, they were actually in impedance and got in our way and that’s what really bothers me to the core. We were, I was specifically threatened by the Department of State about raising funds toward ransom demands for my brother. We were smart enough to look past it but it slowed us down. We lost a lot of time trying to regroup.
In an exclusive interview with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly last night on the Kelly File the brother of beheaded American journalist James “Jim” Foley, Michael Foley, expressed disappointment over how the Obama administration is handling the threat of terror army ISIS and in the administration’s handling of his brother’s capture leading up to his death. James Foley was beheaded three weeks ago by an ISIS terrorist and a YouTube video of the gruesome murder was posted online. President Obama was on vacation at the time and eight minutes after making a statement about the murder, returned to the golf course, a move a majority of Americans found to be in bad taste.
In reacting to President Obama’s speech earlier this week, Foley said he wanted to see a more involved strategy put on the table to stabilize the region. Further in reaction to a question posed by Kelly about whether the Obama administration did everything it could to bring James Foley home, especially after the Bowe Bergdahl swap and comments by Obama saying Americans leave no man behind, Michael Foley said his family is “appalled” by the situation. Foley also talked about how he was threatened directly by the State Department and said that when the family tried to get information from the U.S. government or from other allies, they were stonewalled
