Morning Coffee Break: John Kerry’s take on religion, more Trey, Rutgers cowardice, Benghazi continues
Notable and quotable as ever, John Kerry, never knows when it’s better to remain silent. Trey Gowdy’s in the disparaging, name-calling spotlight. Rutgers actions speak louder than words. And Benghazi-gate continues its drip, drip, drip.
- “That’s not the way I think most people want to live.” John Kerry in his latest remarks on modernity and religion. Talk about a troglodyte. As noted, was he talking about the Bible or the Koran, or Taoism or Hindu. Meanwhile, Boko Haram kidnaps, murders and massacres in Nigeria; Syria continues its terrorist-led religious implosion; coptic Christians are targeted in Cairo, and the world watches. Including the Pope.
- The upcoming Select Committee on Benghazi hasn’t been fully formed, and already we have the partisans on both sides giving their respective perspectives. With Trey Gowdy as chair, no one is going to be sleeping through the Hearings. “Trey Gowdy, not your father’s investigation committee chairman.”
- Becoming a nation of cowards. Or rather, a nation of tolerance, that is, of bullies. Former Secretary of State, Condoleeza Rice, declined to give the commencement address at Rutgers after a professor and several students protested her selection. Way to go, Mr. Barchi; it’s called “cave-in”. Meanwhile, at prestigious Dartmouth, the creator of television drama, “Grey’s Anatomy”, will give the commencement address, and at Cornell, tapped out tuition-paying parents will have the opportunity to hear from actor, Ed Helms, of the “The Office” and “The Hangover.”
- Is Benghazi merely White House incompetence spun out of control? Re-election jitters when the al-Qaeda on the run meme blew up? “What’s not known about Benghazi and why it matters.” I, for one, keep remembering the President addressing the United Nations General Assembly and referring to a YouTube video. There’s a price to be paid here. Four men died and Obama lied.
