John Kerry's Buffoonery

    The Mideast is going jihadist and aggressors are testing America's resolve after failures in Iraq and Afghanistan. What a time for our secretary of state's head to be in the wrong place.

    The new secretary of state, the losing presidential candidate against George W. Bush in 2004, John Kerry, just boasted of discussing with Beijing "the possibility of China investing in infrastructure" in the U.S., as the Weekly Standard's Daniel Halper notes.

    "We have huge infrastructure needs in the United States for a certain series of projects like water projects, transportation projects, energy projects," Kerry said. "Those are all revenue-producing projects. So they are projects from which pension funds and other kinds of investments can make a return on investment and everybody benefits."

    "It's a win-win-win," Kerry enthused. "It's a win for the investors, it's a win for the countries, and ultimately it's a win for the place where the infrastructure gets built."

    What an impeccable illustration of the fantasy-laden mindset of politicians bent on inflating government at any and every opportunity.

    Let authoritarian China, for which capitalism is a tool to increase global power, become the creditors for Americans' pensions and infrastructure? Call it the Beijing Stimulus.

    Kerry's response to the unprecedented nuclear threats against the U.S. from North Korea is to offer "authentic and credible negotiations" to the fanatical regime — a reward to the young, unpredictable Kim Jong Un for his bad behavior.

    The secretary's perception of how America is viewed from abroad is so distorted, he told CNN this week he's concerned foreigners are "actually scared" to come here to study, apparently because of the Constitution's Second Amendment. "They think they're not safe in the United States and so they don't come," Kerry said.

    For an administration that loves to tout its diplomatic skills, you would think Kerry's focus on China would be convincing Beijing to channel its influence on North Korea.

    Instead, he uses his Asia visit at a time of geopolitical crisis to talk up "anthropogenic global warming."

    With climate change skepticism reaching a peak, Kerry claims "every prediction that has been made is coming true, but coming true bigger and more dangerously."

    The truth, as Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., points out in his book "The Greatest Hoax," is that even one of Al Gore's own climate scientists, Dr. Tom Wigley of Boulder's nonprofit University Corporation for Atmospheric Research, all the way back in 1997 admitted "that even if the Kyoto Protocol were fully implemented by all signatories, it would only reduce global temperatures by 0.06 degrees Celsius by 2050."

    Kerry, now the nation's chief diplomat, as Taxachusetts' junior senator under the tutelage of senior senator Teddy Kennedy, in the 1980s called Ronald Reagan's visionary commitment to missile defense against nuclear attack a "cancer."

    As CNS News recently pointed out, Kerry took to the Senate floor in 1986 to insist that "what we must do is deny this program the funds that would enable this cancer on our nation's defense to grow any further."

    Of all of Obama's second-term nominations, Kerry at State — a man who threw his military decorations onto the steps of the U.S. Capitol becoming America's liaison to the world — was in some respects his worst.

    Today, just weeks in office, at a time of grave threat to free nations from weapons of mass destruction in Asia, with Iran on the threshold of obtaining nukes, with a key ally like Egypt now Islamist, Kerry is not brandishing U.S. strength and resolve.

    He is, instead, peddling an agenda of wackiness and leftist ideology.

    What you're seeing around the world is no different than sharks circling around a dying whale, or vultures around a dying bull, etc. All these nations sense the demise and decline of the United States, and so they will be fighting for what is left over, and who will take regional supremacy.
