John Kerry's condolences to Iranian dictator proves "State Department is a joke"

Rebel Staff

The U.S. State Department is a joke. It's bad enough when they do diplomacy via Twitter, holding up goofy signs with silly hashtags that don't accomplish a single thing.

Today, the State Department hit a new low: Secretary of State John Kerry issued "deepest condolences" to Iranian dictator Hassan Rouhani on the death of his mother.

It would be laughable if it weren't so horrific: After all, Rouhani runs a country that stones women to death for the "crime" of adultery.

But I guess those other dead women don't count.

Neither do America's supposed allies like Israel.

I wonder what got higher diplomatic priority? That "sympathy card" to an Iranian terrorist, or congratulations to Netanyahu for winning the election?

The biggest joke in the Kerry family is Marie Harf. If ever there was an example of getting hired thanks to daddy’s contributions its her and she has got to be one of the most inept people in the government right now.

Ware people, since Obama’s bunch tried to manipulate Netanyahu’s election results don’t be surprised if they try the same thing here, after all little boy Justin does have one of Obama’s operatives in his back room, name of Lawrence Summers and by the way, this man is really pushing a carbon tax for the Canadian economy, so what’s he trying to really do here??

Rouhani and his family must be embarrassed by Kerry’s effluence. Seriously. They must be all sitting around saying to each other, “who?”

Rouhani’s name is easier to say than Ahmadinejad’s was but from all accounts, he is a worse leader. No sympathy for that devil!

Why would they send a note of Congratulations to Netanyahu, they campaigned against him!

Elected leadership speaks for the people. U.S. Citizens obviously need to put a little more effort when it comes time to vote. Canadians should learn from this. Vote. Or suffer the consequences.

The more one watches the US foreign policy in operation, the more one is convinced it is made on the fly. Where are the guiding principles? Why the contradictions? Why the stupidities? Is there a well enunciated plan with the guiding principles spelled out in everyday terms? It is little wonder the average American is apathetic to politics.

Freethinker, Marco Rubio is second generation Cuban , born “legitimately” in the United States to American citizen parents. Perhaps you were thinking of Senator Ted Cruz who was born in Canada when his parents were working in Calgary. Being born in A Canadian hospital gave him right of birth in Canada, but does not negate his American birthright as both parents are American.

The Obama Admin is loved by the left and is embarrassing to the majority of Americans.

I’m sorry, I’ve run out of things to say about Obama and all his cohort. Anything I say would just be redundant. I’ve run out of adjectives, and I’m really feeling depressed. I think I’ll just go to bed.

The entire Obama reign of terror has been an unmitigated catastrophe. From his ‘apology tour’ of 2008, to his current rush to give Gitmo back to Cuba at any price; from his failed economic policies that have served only to lengthen the Obama recession to his complete abdication of America’s responsibilities as a world power; from his failure to secure America’s southern border against illegal aliens and terrorists to his wielding of the ‘executive order’ to get what the duly elected government would no give him. At every step he has fumbled and faltered. He has taken our once strong and proud neighbour and driven her to her knees. And that strutting, pompous Kerry is the icing on the cake. We can only hope that there will be enough of America left in 2016 to rescue.

Tom G., Marco Rubio is a fine congressman but like Obama, he is NOT eligible to hold the office of President Of The United States as he is NOT a natural born citizen (NBC) as required by their constitution. I still cannot understand why the people of the U.S. have not demanded this issue to be settled (other that the MSM has assisted in the coverup of Obama’s forged birth certificate and forged Selective Service Card as well as his social security number being stolen / faked.

I keep saying Obama is just a puppet. We need to find out who’s pulling the strings

America has been infiltrated by an islamic trojan horse. He is “chipping away” at the foundations of her liberties bit by bit, and the ignorant are too blind and dense to see it.

Cringeworthy administration. The USA’s enemies are not afraid of them and their friends cannot count on them. John Kerry bringing James Taylor – a has-been 70’s folks singer, to sing “You got a friend” to the people of France after the latest terrorist attack in Paris. I am truly embarrassed for this administration.

Jawn-k’airi: old Cree phrase meaning “hemorrhoid licker”.

At least he has destroyed the Democrats. Americans are ashamed of this administration. Marco Rubio’s speech yesterday blasted Obama with such class. He would make a great President.

Can’t wait for Obama and his gaggle of goons to be booted out of office. Bush Jr. may not have been the sharpest knife in the drawer, but he was worlds better that Obama.

What a waist of skin. The States should be ashamed of this trader
