John Kerry doesn’t believe you stupid peoples don’t need to know about terrorism and terror attacks, and the media really should just STFU and stop reporting such because “copy cats”, or something…
(CNSNews.com) – Secretary of State John Kerry said Monday during an appearance in Bangladesh that the media could “do us all a service” if they didn’t cover terrorism “quite as much.”
“No country is immune from terrorism,” Kerry said at a press availability in Dhaka, Bangladesh. “It’s easy to terrorize. Government and law enforcement have to be correct 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. But if you decide one day you’re going to be a terrorist and you’re willing to kill yourself, you can go out and kill some people. You can make some noise. Perhaps the media would do us all a service if they didn’t cover it quite as much. People wouldn’t know what’s going on.”

Apparently Harry Reid’s Ten Commandments don’t include the one about bearing false witness as he insists on doing it over and over again (See: Koch Brothers, Mitt Romney, etc.) and now Donald Trump. Perhaps Harry is abiding by the Koran and taqiyya, and not “The Bible”…
(NY Times) – Mr. Reid’s accusation that Russia is seeking not only to influence the election with propaganda but also to tamper with the vote counting goes significantly beyond anything the Obama administration has said in public.
While intelligence agencies have told the White House that they have “high confidence” that Russian intelligence services were behind the hacking of the Democratic committee, the administration has not leveled any accusations against Mr. Putin’s government.
Asked about that in the interview, Mr. Reid said he was free to say things that the president was not. “This is one of the strengths of Barack Obama,” he said. “He waits and waits and waits until all the evidence is in” before deciding how to respond.
But Mr. Reid argued that the connections between some of Donald J. Trump’s former and current advisers and the Russian leadership should, by itself, prompt an investigation. He referred indirectly in his letter to a speech given in Russia by one Trump adviser, Carter Page, a consultant and investor in the energy giant Gazprom, who criticized American sanctions policy toward Russia.
“Trump and his people keep saying the election is rigged,” Mr. Reid said. “Why is he saying that? Because people are telling him the election can be messed with.” Mr. Trump’s advisers say they are concerned that unnamed elites could rig the election for his opponent, Hillary Clinton.
Harry’s jackass fuckery knows no bounds as he attacks the still painfully grieving mother of Benghazi victim Sean Smith…
Sen. Harry Reid, who led Democrats to a Senate majority and then back into the minority, triggered the nuclear option to change Senate rules and used a special budget tactic to get Obamacare passed, told a Nevada newspaper not to blame him for partisanship in Washington.
In an extensive interview with the Reno Gazette-Journal he also called Patricia Smith, the mother of a State Department employee slain in the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack, “crazy” for her speech at the GOP convention questioning Hillary Clinton’s behavior. Mr. Reid then tried to tack back that characterization and instead accused Mrs. Smith of lack of accuracy.”
And Mr. Reid defended his demonstrably false attack on 2012 presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who he said didn’t pay income taxes, as true according to his own version of things.
“I tell the truth,” he told the Reno newspaper, before correcting himself: “It may not be the truth, it’s how I feel.”
“I knew that he had a problem with his tax returns, okay? I went to the White House, he was running for re-election, do something about the DNC. I didn’t want to do that. No one else would do it, so I did it. I’m glad I did it.”
Mr. Romney did in fact release tax returns for 2010 and 2010, and released summaries for previous years, showing he did pay taxes…
Mr. Reid has been a dominant figure in Washington, helping shepherd much of President Obama’s agenda through in 2009 and 2010, using an arcane budget procedure to ensure the passage of Obamacare.
He also detonated the “nuclear option,” taking a shortcut to change the rules on filibusters to force through Mr. Obama’s judicial and executive branch nominees. That move has paid off in a number of instances, helping install left-leaning bureaucrats in agencies, and judges who have rewarded Mr. Obama with favorable rulings from the bench.
Mr. Reid said the partisanship in Washington that voters complain about is actually a product of Republicans refusing to work with Mr. Obama — including the filibusters of his nominees. Mr. Reid said his own hardball tactics have been about advancing the president’s agenda.
“No, I’m not responsible for any partisanship,” Mr. Reid said. “I’ve tried my best to get things done. But it’s hard when you spend all your time trying to work on filibusters.”
He blamed the wealthy conservative-leaning Koch brothers for distorting politics, and said Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s emails aren’t a substantive political issue.
Clinton democrat-op Donna Brazile just doesn’t see the criminality of “pay-to-play” with government officials … well, for democrat officials, anyway.
(HotAir) – While attempting to minimize the importance of the special access donors to the Clinton Foundation gained with the State Department under Hillary Clinton, interim-Chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee may have made matters even worse…
“First of all, Martha, the way I look at it, I’ve been a government official. So, you know, this notion that, somehow or another, someone who is a supporter, someone who is a donor, somebody who’s an activist, saying I want access, I want to come into a room and I want to meet people, we often criminalize behavior that is normal. And it’s — I don’t — I don’t see what the smoke is.”
Not only is this a startling admission that access is granted to major donors on a “business as usual” basis over at the DNC, Brazille’s statement also illustrates a much larger problem for her candidate and her relationship with the Clinton Foundation.
You see, Brazille is describing a scenario where, she believes, it’s perfectly understandable that a major donor to a political campaign might gain some access to a candidate or an event because of their donation. She calls this “normal” and she may be right.
Here’s the problem, Ms. Brazile: The Clinton Foundation is not supposed to be a political campaign fund!
In her defense of her candidate, Ms. Brazile seems to have highlighted the exact problem — if not illegal behavior — in how the Clinton Foundation operated in connection with the State Department. The foundation is a 501(c)3, non-profit, non-partisan charity, not a political campaign apparatus.
By equating (possibly by mistake) the Clinton Foundation charity with a political campaign, Brazile has inadvertently acknowledged that within the State Department the Clinton Foundation was seen as a political organization and was treated as if it was. And that is the problem.
For a government official to grant access to an individual or organization in exchange for political donations is, in fact, against the law…

MSNBC Host Joy Reid Claims “Planned Parenthood Is Not a Eugenicist Organization!” … Even though it was founded by a self-appointed ‘eugenicist’ (Margaret Sanger) with a designated ‘eugenics’ agenda. Can we ponder this woman might have her designs, and temperament, on possibly becoming Hillary’s Press Sec.? Can you imagine the WH press pool trying to get anything out as a question with this woman’s bitter shouting-down? I guess by Joy’s thinking and assertions something like the Holocaust would not be a permitted topic to discuss in front of her…
