Consider that despite flinging outrageous calumnies at the US military over the course of decades, Hanoi John Kerry was made the No. 1 diplomatic representative of the USA. Consider that Israel is our closest ally in the Middle East — and after what Obama has done to alienate Britain and Canada, close allies are becoming ever more precious. Then consider this:
Secretary of State John Kerry is under fire for comparing the Boston Marathon bombing victims to Turkish activists killed by Israel when they tried to break a naval blockade.
The Republican Jewish Coalition is calling on Kerry to retract the statement or risk the world thinking America has “lost its moral bearings.”
If we hadn’t lost our moral bearings, the person who appointed Kerry wouldn’t have been in a position to give him the job.
Relatives of the nine Turkish activists killed by the Israeli Defense Force in the 2010 raid say their relatives were killed in cold blood while trying to render humanitarian aid to Gaza residents.
But Israel, a longstanding U.S. ally, has released video showing the activists beating Israeli soldiers with metal sticks and chairs as they boarded their boat, the [Jerusalem] Post reports, adding that the IDF reported that metal rods, sharp metal objects, sticks, clubs, hammers, firebombs and gas masks were found on board.
The objective of the activists was to aid and abet Palestinian terrorists. Only a moonbat well versed in the liberal art of moral equivalence could equate terrorist sympathizers with terrorist victims.
No one who wished America well would pick a treasonous left-wing jackass like John Kerry to be Secretary of State.

When you consider the disgusting acts they perform and the lethal diseases acquired thereby, you may wonder why anyone chooses to be a homosexual. Evidently some have their reasons, and soon they may have one more — to be allowed into the USA, where they can climb aboard the welfare gravy train, after the Democrat–RINO alliance rams through amnesty:
Democrats are treading carefully when it comes to a proposed addition to the bipartisan immigration overhaul. It would let gay Americans sponsor their partners in other countries for visas…
Sen. Patrick Leahy, a Vermont Democrat, is expected to offer the provision as an amendment.
Naturally some new arrivals will only be gay for a day; like our welfare system, our immigration system is deliberately designed to be gamed.

An anonymous coworker summed up the spirit of the times after 20-year-old Bernard Goal was arrested for making air rifles in his New York University dorm room:
“It’s very scary to know there were [BB] guns one floor below me. I had no idea.”
It is hoped that with counseling, the coworker can pull through this traumatic experience without sustaining permanent psychological scarring.

Another to file under Your Tax Dollar at Work:
Peter Sagal, host of NPR’s highly entertaining “Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me,” is planning a new PBS special on the US Constitution. In an interview with Politico, Sagal explains that he will be using the show to “educate” Americans about our government’s framing document.
Here Sagal makes clear what sort of opinion he will be educating viewers that it is correct to hold regarding the Constitution:
“The Constitution is only as alive as we collectively have decided it is today. I’ve been calling it the Tinkerbell of national charters because Tinkerbell only lives if you clap, right? Or if you say, ‘I do believe in fairies, I do!’ It’s like this: ‘I do believe in civics, I do!’ And everybody believes in it, and we move on. And it’s an amazing phenomenon.”
Every time you pay federal taxes, you are paying the likes of Sagal to present highly toxic moonbattery to the well-to-do liberal elitists who comprise his audience.

After serving as the central pillar of society since before recorded history, the institution of marriage is about to fall to liberal culture warriors, who are already setting their sights on future conquests.
On the pedophilia front, from Britain:
Stelios Kimpriktzis, 38, who is HIV positive, was jailed for three years in 2006 for having unprotected sex with a young boy.
As part of his punishment, the trial judge imposed a sexual offences prevention order, or SOPO, which on his eventual release from prison banned him from working anywhere he might come into contact with under-16s.
But in an appeal [Monday], three of the country’s most senior judges overturned the restriction even though they described him as a “predatory paedophile”.
The judges were worried about Kimpriktzis’s career opportunities. They should have had him send his resume to the White House; Obama needs a new Safe Schools Czar.
Closer to home, liberal Slate pushes the envelope on polygamy:
While the Supreme Court and the rest of us are all focused on the human right of marriage equality, let’s not forget that the fight doesn’t end with same-sex marriage. We need to legalize polygamy, too. Legalized polygamy in the United States is the constitutional, feminist, and sex-positive choice. More importantly, it would actually help protect, empower, and strengthen women, children, and families.
If you are sick enough to be able to imagine where liberals will next take their jihad against decency, seek help immediately.

We have been laughing at them ever since 9/11, but in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing, conspiracy kooks are yapping louder than ever. Florida Atlantic University prof James Tracy auditions for Infowars:
As The College Fix reports, Tracy has taken to his personal blog, Memory Hole, to question official accounts of the April 15 Boston Marathon bombings. In the blog, which isn’t affiliated with FAU, Tracy argues that the amount of damage captured on video cannot be reconciled with the homemade bombs that authorities say caused the damage.
More likely, the tenured professor says, what happened in Boston was a “mass casualty drill.”
In an April 23 posting entitled “Witnessing Boston’s Mass Casualty Event,” Tracy contends that “photographic evidence of the event suggests the possibility of play actors getting into position after the detonation of what may in fact have been a smoke bomb or similarly benign explosive.”
Tracy believes the bombing was really just some kind of dress rehearsal. “The event closely resembles a mass-casualty drill, which for training purposes are designed to be as lifelike as possible,” the FAU communications professor asserts. “Since it is mediated, however, and primarily experienced from afar through the careful assemblage of words, images, and the official pronouncements and commentary of celebrity journalists, it has the semblance of being for all practical purposes ‘real.’”
What the word real might mean in the context of academia is itself a fit subject for scholarly research.
Another theory advanced by the nutty professor posits that the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School was a training exercise that went awry.
If Florida Atlantic University sounds familiar, you could be thinking of Ryan Rotella, the Mormon student who was suspended for refusing to write “Jesus” on a piece of paper and trample it underfoot.
Meanwhile, the cost of “higher” education continues to shoot through the stratosphere. But no worries; Obama has nationalized the student loan industry, so there should always be a way to attend on someone else’s dime.

Who would you expect the United Nations to blame for the murder and mayhem caused by the Tsarnaev brothers? America and Israel, naturally:
“The American global domination project is bound to generate all kinds of resistance in the post-colonial world,” Richard Falk, the UN Human Rights Council’s Palestine monitor, wrote in an article for Foreign Policy Journal titled, “A Commentary on the Marathon Murders.”
In addition to gibbering self-righteously about America’s “geopolitical fantasy of global domination,”
Falk also blamed Israel for the unrest he believes prompted two brothers of Chechen descent to set bombs that killed three innocent people and injure nearly 200, then kill a police officer.
As Dinesh D’Souza has documented so informatively, our own president shares Falk’s demented antineocolonialist ideology.
Falk was also heard from after 9/11, which he characteristically blamed on George W. Bush.
Few will be surprised to learn that Falk is an Ivy League professor emeritus.
If the USA stopped funding it, the malignant United Nations would wither and die, forcing Falk to compete for a show on MSNBC, return to the faculty lounge, or lose his audience altogether.

Muslims from faraway lands have plenty of time to plot terrorist atrocities like the Boston Marathon bombing because our government pays them with our money not to work:
Marathon bombings mastermind Tamerlan Tsarnaev was living on taxpayer-funded state welfare benefits even as he was delving deep into the world of radical anti-American Islamism, the Herald has learned. …
In addition, both of Tsarnaev’s parents received benefits, and accused brother bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan were recipients through their parents when they were younger, according to the state.
Taxpayers also subsidized Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s mosque.
Our rulers import and finance countless colonists like the Tsarnaevs not for the terrorism they bring with them (although that does increase our tolerance for authoritarianism), but in hopes of creating ever more government dependency and diluting the libertarian values that have traditionally defined America. If you think the situation is bad now, wait until they ram amnesty through.

Our own authorities are on the side of our enemies. How can we prevail under these circumstances like these?
The Australian Defence Force (ADF) has charged an Army Reserve Intelligence Officer, Bernard Gaynor, for discussing links between Islam and terrorist activity.
The charges were laid [Monday], despite an internal investigation by the ADF’s Investigative Service finding that there was no basis for disciplinary action.
Gaynor is not backing down. As he observes,
“This kind of stupidity … explains the logical inconsistency between fighting a war against people who espouse violent Islamic beliefs while at the same time having an immigration policy that allows people with the same ideology to settle into [i.e., colonize] Australia.”
The same lunatic political correctness that allowed Nidal Malik Hasan to fester behind our own lines despite waving a pageant of red flags until he unleashed a terrorist bloodbath at Fort Hood continues to thrive.
Muslims have been trying to obliterate the West for centuries, but only now do they have the advantage of an alliance with our demented and treasonous ruling class.
