Um, At a Loss for Words … Sec. of State John Kerry Goes to Paris to Give the French a “Big Hug” and Brings James Taylor to Play ‘You’ve Got A Friend’ (VIDEO)
WELCOME TO THE JV PRESIDENCY OF BARACK OBAMA … JAMES TAYLOR APOLOGY FOREIGN POLICY FOR THE FRENCH? SNL WILL NOT EVEN BE ABLE TO OUTDO THE REALTY OF THIS CLUSTERF*UCK THAT IS THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION AND A JOHN KERRY FOREIGN POLICY EMBARRASSMENT.
When I first heard this story, I thought it was a spoof from the Onion. Sadly, it was not.
The Obama administration got hammered from the RIGHT and the LEFT after they failed to send anyone of any importance to last Sunday’s “Unity” march in Paris, France against radical Islam, so they decided to make up for it today. What was the stroke of brilliance that Barack Obama, John Kerry and their minions came up with … why to send Secretary of State John “why the long face” Kerry to give the French a “Big Hug” and, wait for it, wait for it, also to send James Taylor and his acoustic guitar as well to sing, ‘You Got a Friend’. WTF, you got to be kidding! This is stunning, embarrassingly, awkwardly and ridiculously stunning.
Is this how low we have sunk in America under Barack Obama? The United States of America is the laughing stock of the world. Under the Obama administration the US went from being feared to playing the fool. Who in the hell signed off on this that it would be a good idea? Obama’s administration was reportedly caught by surprise at the size and the interest of last weeks march in Paris and those very same people sat around a frigging table and came up with this idea to make it right. REALLY?
I agree with Twitchy 100%, ‘No way this really happened.’
Warning … heavy sarcasm because that is all this embarrassing episode deserves.
Rumor has it, James Taylor was not first on the list. According to an anonymous source, the cast of ‘Friends’ was supposed to go to Paris and sing their theme song; however, Joey and Phoebe could not be reached in time. That and the Rembrandt’s were reportedly too busy.
I’ll be there for you
When the rain starts to pour
I’ll be there for you
Like I’ve been there before
I’ll be there for you
‘Cause you’re there for me too
Actually, the first idea from the Obama minions was to have Casey Casem provide a long distance dedication to France using the Dionne Warwick song, ‘That’s What Friends Are For.’ But it turns out that the Solid Gold dancer were no where to be found and could not fit into their 1980′s spandex outfits. Also, it seems that Dionne Warwick with Elton John, Gladys Knight & Stevie Wonder are no longer speaking to each other. That and John Kerry did not realize that Casey Kasem was dead.
Their second plan was to reunite the Jackson 5 so that they could sing, I’ll Be There’. However, even Barack Obama had enough sense to know that no one, not even the Obamamessiah could reunite the Jackson’s with all their dysfunction. For some reason Barack did know that Michael Jackson was dead, go figure.
You and I must make a pact, we must bring salvation back
Where there is love, I’ll be there
I’ll reach out my hand to you, I’ll have faith in all you do
Just call my name and I’ll be there
Third, it appears that Barack Obama, John Kerry and the State Department tried to get the Beatles back together for one final appearance and perform in Paris France their song, “With a Little Help From My Friends.” What better way to say I am sorry, than to reunite the Beatles. However, they ran into a couple of strategic roadblocks, no sarcasm intended, they really were not speaking to each other. Also, they appeared not to realize that John Lennon and George Harrison had passed..
What would you think if I sang out of tune
Would you stand up and walk out on me?
Lend me your ears and I’ll sing you a song
And I’ll try not to sing out of key
Oh I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm going to try with a little help from my friends
What do I do when my love is away?
(Does it worry you to be alone?)
How do I feel by the end of the day?
(Are you sad because you’re on your own?)
No I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm going to try with a little help from my friends
Then John Kerry thought, wait a minute, we can get Joe Cocker to sing the Beatles song, he remembered Cocker had done a fantastic job sing it at Woodstock. However, upon further review Kerry learned that Joe Cocker had recently passed as well.
The Obama administration then thought, hey let’s call Queen, they can sing, ‘You’re My Best Friend’. Nothing sucks up better and says I am sorry than telling someone they are your best friend, even if you don’t mean it. Once again Kerry and Obama had to be informed that Freddie Mercury died in 1991.
You’re the best friend
That I ever had
I’ve been with you such a long time
You’re my sunshine
And I want you to know
That my feelings are true
I really love you
You’re my best friend
Ooh, you make me live
North Korea Releases Two American Citizens, Kenneth Bae and Matthew Todd Miller … On Their Way Home to the United States
FOX News is reporting that North Korea has released two American citizens, Todd Miller and Kenneth Bae. They are on their way home to the United States. Miller was serving a six-year jail term on charges of espionage, while Bae was serving a 15 year sentence for alleged anti-government activities. Bae and Miller were being accompanied home by James Clapper, the director of national intelligence. Their release comes less than three weeks after another American, 56 year old Jeffrey Fowle was freed by Pyongyang.
North Korea has released two American citizens, Kenneth Bae and Matthew Todd Miller, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence said Saturday.
The agency said the men have been allowed to leave North Korea and are on their way home, accompanied by agency Director James Clapper.
Bae and Miller were the last Americans held by North Korea following the release last month of Jeffrey Fowle.
Miller, who’s from California, was serving a six-year jail term on charges of espionage, after he allegedly ripped his tourist visa at Pyongyang’s airport in April and demanded asylum.
Bae, who’s from Washington state, is a Korean-American missionary with health problems. He was serving a 15-year sentence for alleged anti-government activities.izens, Kenneth Bae and Matthew Todd Miller.

In a statement Saturday, Clapper’s office said the U.S. government is facilitating the two men’s return home, though it was not immediately clear when they would arrive back in the United States.
“We welcome (North Korea’s decision to release both Mr. Bae and Mr. Miller,” the office said. “We want to thank our international partners, especially … the government of Sweden, for their tireless efforts to help secure their release.”
The U.S. State Department issued its own statement, saying, “We join their families and friends in welcoming them home.”
Military operations have begun in Syria against ISIS.
As reported at FOX News, the United States and five Arab allies, Jordan, Saudia Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Qater, have begun military operations in Syria against ISIS. The bombing campaign consisted of airstrikes, bombings and Tomahawk cruise-missile attacks against the Islamic State. The airstrikes focused on the city of Raqqa, the declared capital of ISIS’ self-proclaimed Islamic State, but also about 20 to 25 targets have been struck.
The United States, joined by five Arab allies, launched an intense campaign of airstrikes, bombings and cruise-missile attacks against the Islamic State and another militant group in Syria Monday night – marking the first U.S. military intervention in Syria since the start of that country’s civil war in 2011.
U.S. Central Command (Centcom) said in a statement released early Tuesday that 14 Islamic State targets were hit, including the group’s fighters, training camps, headquarters and command-and-control facilities, and armed vehicles. The operation involved a combination of fighter jets, Predator drones and Tomahawk missiles launched from the Red Sea and Persian Gulf.

The strikes “destroyed or damaged” multiple targets, according to the U.S. military, which reported “all aircraft safely exited the strike areas.”
The mission was not limited to hitting Islamic State positions. Centcom said that U.S. aircraft also struck eight targets associated with another terrorist group called the Khorasan Group, made of up Al Qaeda veterans. Those strikes, near the northwestern Syrian city of Aleppo, targeted training camps, a munitions production facility, a communication building and command-and-control facilities.
Centcom said the Khorasan Group was involved in “imminent attack plotting against the United States and Western interests.”
American jets began bombing ISIS targets in Syria early Tuesday, raising U.S. involvement in the war-torn country and sending a forceful message to the terror group.
The airstrikes focused on the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa, a U.S. official told CNN, though other locations were hit as well.
At least 20 targets in an around Raqqa were hit, the opposition group Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
They’re the first strikes against the terror group inside the country since President Barack Obama’s announcement this month that he was prepared to expand the American efforts beyond targets in Iraq.
All foreign partners participating in the strikes with the United States are Arab countries, a senior U.S. military official told CNN. Those nations are Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Jordan.
Diplomatic sources told CNN that Qatar was also involved, though it was not clear whether Qatar actually conducted airstrikes itself.

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.”
NBC/WSJ Poll: Large Majority of Americans Support Barack Obama Mission to Destroy ISIS, But Have No Confidence That He Can Do So
THIS IS WHY YOU NEVER ELECT, LET ALONE REELECT A COMMUNITY AGITATOR TO BE PRESIDENT AND COMMANDER IN CHIEF … A VOTE OF NO CONFIDENCE.
It is a sad state of affairs in the White House these days and the people have lost confidence in President Barack Obama. In the most recent NBC/WSJ poll, although 62% of voters say that they support Obama’s decision to take action against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, however, even more, 68%, say they have little to some confidence that he can reach his goals of degrading and eliminating ISIS. Sadly, that seems to be Obama’s own opinion as well with his mixed messages and a plan that counts on premises that he was against just months ago.
It is hard to win a war on terror when you cannot even bring yourself to say it.
Nearly 70 percent of Americans say they lack confidence that the U.S. will achieve its goals in fighting the terrorist group ISIS, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Annenberg poll. The findings come in the wake of President Barack Obama’s national address announcing new measures to combat the Sunni militants.
Pressure is mounting on the U.S. and its allies to cripple the militants, who have waged a brutal campaign across Syria and Iraq. ISIS already has beheaded two American journalists and on Saturday released a video showing the execution of a third Westerner, British aid worker David Haines.
The poll – conducted before the latest execution emerged – showed that a combined 68 percent of Americans say they have “very little” or “just some” confidence that Obama’s goals of degrading and eliminating the threat posed by ISIS will be achieved. Just 28 percent said they had “a great deal” or “quite a bit” of confidence. Still, 62 percent of voters say they support Obama’s decision to take action against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, while 22 percent oppose it.
The NBC/WSJ poll also shows that just 38% of voters approve of Obama’s job in handling foreign policy.Which is actually higher than the most recent FOX News poll that has Obama’s approval rating in dealing with foreign police at 34% approve and 59% disapprove.
