We’re sooo doomed.

It looks like the genius that replaced Billary at the State Department pointed out in a speech at UV that neither China nor Middle Eastern instability are as big of a threat to America as Congress is, and by Congress this moron really means those evil people that want government to live within its means:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State John Kerry says the greatest challenge to U.S. foreign policy is not emerging China or Middle East instability. It’s Congress.

In a speech Wednesday at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Kerry cited the adage that “we can’t be strong in the world unless we are strong at home.” He called the budget impasse a threat.

The State Department has said automatic spending cuts would jeopardize $2.6 billion in aid, security assistance and other international programs.

Kerry said legislators need to avoid “senseless cuts.”

Yeah congress is the problem. Not the fact that Team Blue has not passed a budget, now going on 4 years, has spent over $1 trillion more than government collected in taxes to buy votes from people that do not want to work since they took power, that they funneled nearly $1 trillion to their friends, lobbyists, special interests, and own campaign coffers, at the tax payer’s expense, shafted our young with the most costly and destructive collectivist scheme of all times when government took over control of healthcare money and decisions under the pretense that it would improve quality, access, and lower cost, and let us not forget the complete lack of focus on fixing the economy & jobs market while they destroyed the financial future of this country. No, none of those things are really the problem: the problem is with the evil people hell bent on making government live within its means.

You can not make this stupid up. Can you believe the wailing and chest beating if someone that wasn’t part of Team Blue had said something this stupid? Yeah, I thought so too. It’s not like if one guy was in office they would demand immediate help or accuse him of hating black people, while ignoring the fact that 4 months after another hurricane the people are still fucked with their guy in charge.

Shit, at least Mr. “Reporting for duty after I fucking screwed over those people that were better humans than me”, didn’t compound this stupid by talking about some totally irrelevant and idiotic collectivist scheme to rob people of their freedoms and money by instilling fear of something that was settled by something as ridiculous as the concept of “consensus science”, which literally translates to a scam done by a clique of unscientific progressive scumbags. Oh crap, he did.

Secretary of State John Kerry gave his first major foreign policy speech today. In his address, delivered at the University of Virginia, he discussed tackling climate change.

“We as a nation must have the foresight and courage to make the investments necessary to safeguard the most sacred trust we keep for our children and grandchildren: an environment not ravaged by rising seas, deadly superstorms, devastating droughts, and the other hallmarks of a dramatically changing climate,” said Kerry, according to prepared remarks.

“And let’s face it – we are all in this one together. No nation can stand alone. We share nothing so completely as our planet. When we work with others – large and small – to develop and deploy the clean technologies that will power a new world, we’re also helping create new markets and new opportunities for America’s second-to-none innovators and entrepreneurs to succeed in the next great revolution.”

MOAR BIG GOBMENT!

Fuck these people are tediously stupid. No wonder that when the Russians finally called back it was to treat this idiot like a clerk. And it is not like the we have all kinds of horrible stories that show the State Department run by Team Blue is itself the worst enemy of US foreign policy. From the disastrous Arab Spring that led to such wonderful things like Egypt run by radical muslims, Syria in a civil war that is killing thousands, the Libyan “Kinetic Action” event that culminated with a cataclysmic event that has all but been covered over by the fifth column in Benghazi, to more recent revelations that the State Department was hard at work backstabbing our friends while consorting with the enemy. You can not make either the level of stupid up, nor the covering for the stupid. Makes you pine for when the press was really busy trying to convince us all that the people that compared to the imbeciles now in charge look like mental giants where the dumb ones. Heh.

    Kerry said, “Think about it: It’s hard to tell the leadership of any number of countries that they must resolve their economic issues if we don’t resolve our own.”

    Ummm maybe we shouldn’t be telling them how to resolve their economic issues in the first place. That in itself might be better foreign policy. Considering he’s part of the spend spend spend your way to prosperity crowd, I’m not sure we could bitch to other countries about their spend spend spend their way to prosperity policy anyhow.

    You just need to accept that to “progressives” (Marxists), the USA is the biggest threat to world peace there is, and that our choice of friends is all wrong. This is the same line of thinking that gives us such jewels of wisdom as Chavez being a great liberating force for justice among the oppressed commoners, Cuba would be a paradise if only we stopped oppressing Castro unjustly, or that calling illegal aliens “undocumented migrants” somehow makes the fact that they are criminals just go away….

    Must be the new talking point going around.

    The Army has been in a state of continuous war for nearly 12 years, the longest in our nation’s history,” [ Army chief of Staff] Odierno said, “but today, in my opinion, the greatest threat to our national security is the fiscal uncertainty resulting from the lack of predictability in the budget cycle.”

    “We are now just beginning to implement that almost $800 billion worth of cuts,” Odierno said, and “now on top of that with sequestration, we’ll take an additional $500 billion worth of cuts in the Department of Defense, so we’re now up to $1.2 trillion.”

    One of his major concerns is that he’ll have to cut back on training stateside, which will have an effect on providing the remaining rotations for troops in Afghanistan, who now serve tours of nine months, Odierno said.

    “The rest of the forces that are now back in the United States will not be able to train (adequately),” Odierno said. “They’ll be able to do very small level, squad level training. They will not be able to do platoon level, company level, battalion level training.”

    “I told a Congressman the other day I have two choices if I can’t make that training up quickly — I’ll either have to send in forces that aren’t ready or I have to extend those that are already there,” Odierno said.

    Time to close the gates to the Temple of Janus? (Don’t worry, you only have to pretend, like Augustus did, that the whole empire is at peace).

    Note how cuts to unearned entitlements like welfare, food stamps, and extended unemployment are never/rarely on the table for discussion. It’s always the military and Social Security. And unlike unearned entitlements, SS is insurance which people contributed into for a lifetime. Leftists love to dishonestly conflate SS with “entitlements” like welfare.

    Welfare spending is the largest US budget item, larger than the Dept. of Defense.
