John Kerry “TRAITOR”
Written by admin on April 27, 2021
Secretary of State John Kerry signed the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty Wednesday (September 25, 2013). Upon adding his signature, Kerry addressed the world body:
On behalf of President Obama and the United States of America, I am very pleased to have signed this treaty here today. I signed it because President Obama knows that from decades of efforts that at any time that we work with — cooperatively to address the illicit trade in conventional weapons, we make the world a safer place. And this treaty is a significant step in that effort.
Promptly, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon thanked Kerry and Obama for their complicity in consolidating UN control over weapons and ammunition.
On Monday (September 22, 2013), a source inside the State Department said that Secretary Kerry would commit this act of treason. What’s more, key members of the Senate were informed Tuesday (September 23, 2013) that Kerry intended to sign the treaty and that the reaction from senators was one of disinterest.
In fairness, a few senators have spoken out today (Wednesday, September 24, 2013), warning President Obama not to try to bypass the Senate in his fervor to enforce the terms of this globalist gun grab.
Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), the ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, sent the president a letter reminding him that:
As you know, Article II, Section 2 of the United States Constitution requires the United States Senate to provide its advice and consent before a treaty becomes binding under United States law. The Senate has not yet provided its advice and consent, and may not provide such consent. As a result, the Executive Branch is not authorized to take any steps to implement the treaty.
President Obama knows this and he also knows that in March, 53 senators voted “to uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.”
Americans know something, too. They know that this administration has never failed to use every murderous act of armed violence as a pretext for tyranny. From Newtown to the Navy Yard, President Obama has issued scores of executive orders directly violating the Constitution’s explicit prohibition on the infringement of the right to keep and bear arms.
John Kerry’s signing of the Arms Trade Treaty demonstrates that he and his boss will continue along this treasonous trajectory until control of all weapons and ammunition is consolidated into the UN and its client governments.
There is so much wrong and so much unconstitutional about the Arms Trade Treaty that it is difficult to describe it all. The following summary of the agreement should be sufficient, however, to call to action all constitutionalists, gun owners, and lovers of liberty. Senators, President Obama, and Secretary of State John Kerry must know that we will not sit idly by while they surrender our sovereignty and plot to confiscate our weapons.
First, the Arms Trade Treaty grants a monopoly over all weaponry in the hands of the very entity (approved regimes) responsible for over 300 million murders in the 20th century.
Furthermore, the treaty leaves private citizens powerless to oppose future slaughters.
An irrefutable fact of armed violence unaddressed by the UN in its gun grab is that all the murders committed by all the serial killers in history don’t amount to a fraction of the brutal killings committed by “authorized state parties” using the very weapons over which they will exercise absolute control under the terms of the Arms Trade Treaty.
Article 2 of the treaty defines the scope of the treaty’s prohibitions. The right to own, buy, sell, trade, or transfer all means of armed resistance, including handguns, is denied to civilians by this section of the Arms Trade Treaty.
Article 3 places the “ammunition/munitions fired, launched or delivered by the conventional arms covered under Article 2” within the scope of the treaty’s prohibitions, as well.
Article 4 rounds out the regulations, also placing all “parts and components” of weapons within the scheme.
Perhaps the most immediate threat to the rights of gun owners in the Arms Trade Treaty is found in Article 5. Under the title of “General Implementation,” Article 5 mandates that all countries participating in the treaty “shall establish and maintain a national control system, including a national control list.”
This list should “apply the provisions of this Treaty to the broadest range of conventional arms.”
Mark it down: If the treaty is ratified by the United States or if its provisions are enforced by executive order, within months the federal government (likely under the management of the Department of Homeland Security) would begin compiling a list of who owns, buys, sells, trades, or transfers any firearm, as well as the ammunition, parts, and components of those weapons.
After creating this database, the federal government would be required under the provisions of Article 5(4) of the Arms Trade Treaty to “provide its national control list to the Secretariat, which shall make it available to other States Parties.”
That’s right. The UN treaty demands that the list of gun and ammunition owners not only be in the hands of our own government, but be sent to foreign regimes, as well. This provision would guarantee that should an American owner of a legally purchased firearm decide to emigrate, he will be on the radar of the ruling regime in his new home.
Americans are right to recognize this registry as the first step toward confiscation. Without such a registry, it would be impossible to monitor weapons transfers effectively because governments can’t track weapons exchanges and transfers unless they know who has them to begin with.
Article 12 adds to the record-keeping requirement, mandating that the list include “the quantity, value, model/type, authorized international transfers of conventional arms,” as well as the identity of the “end users” of these items.
In very clear terms, ratification of the Arms Trade Treaty by the United States would require that the U.S. government force gun owners to add their names to the national registry. Citizens would be required to report the amount and type of all firearms and ammunition they possess.
Section 4 of Article 12 of the treaty requires that the list be kept for at least 10 years.
Finally, the agreement demands that national governments take “appropriate measures” to enforce the terms of the treaty, including civilian disarmament. If these countries can’t get this done on their own, however, Article 16 provides for UN assistance, specifically including help with the enforcement of “stockpile management, disarmament, demobilization and reintegration programmes.”
In fact, a “voluntary trust fund” will be established to assist those countries that need help from UN peacekeepers or other regional forces to disarm their citizens.
Arguably, the Arms Trade Treaty would become the law of the United States if the Senate were to ratify the treaty.
While that is the process that the Constitution establishes for the implementation of treaties, fundamental principles of construction and constitutional law dictate that no treaty that violates the Constitution can become the supreme law of the land.
In the case of the UN’s Arms Trade Treaty, there is no doubt that regardless of presidential signatures or congressional consent, this treaty cannot pass constitutional muster and therefore will never be the valid law of the land.
Unless, of course, Americans once again acquiesce to President Obama’s assumption of illegal authority and relinquish their rights and weapons regardless of the reasons they should not do so.
Finally, citizens must understand a very important nuance of Secretary Kerry’s assurance in his speech that the Arms Trade Treaty isn’t about taking away freedom, “it is about keeping weapons out of the hands of terrorists and rogue actors.” Americans must remember that Kerry, Obama, and the UN consider gun owners to be “terrorists” and “rogue actors,” thus subject to seizure of their firearms in the name of “international peace and global security.”
For John Kerry and Barack Obama, the confiscation of weapons from civilians is an act of, as Kerry said Wednesday, “advancing important humanitarian goals.”
For Americans, however, it is a giant leap toward enslavement.
Americans would be wise at this critical time to remember the words of George Washington, who advised:
A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.

Kerry wishes US had a leader like Ayatollah Khamenei
Sure – exactly with America needs. A theocratic fanatic who wants to wipe Israel off the map and leads the chants of “Death to America” every Friday after prayers.
What could have possessed our secretary of state to tell his Iranian counterpart that he wishes the US had a leader like Iran’s Supreme Leader?
Washington Free Beacon:
Secretary of State John Kerry told his Iranian counterpart that he wished the United States had a leader more like Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei, according to comments made by a senior Iranian cleric and repeated in the country’s state-run media.
Ayatollah Alam al-Hoda claimed during Friday prayer services in Iran that in negotiations over Tehran’s contested nuclear program, Kerry told the country’s foreign minister that he “wished the U.S. had a leader like Iran’s supreme leader,” according to a Persian-language report on the remarks published by the Asriran news site.
“In the negotiations Kerry told [Iranian Foreign Minister Javad] Zarif that he [Kerry] wished U.S. had a leader like Iran’s supreme leader,” according to Alam al-Hoda, who is a senior member of the Iran’s powerful Assembly of Experts.
A senior administration official told the Washington Free Beacon that such a contention is patently absurd.
The remarks are the latest in a string of comments made by Iranian leaders purporting to reveal private details of the talks.
Iranian newspapers have carried multiple reports in recent months suggesting that Iranian Foreign Minister and chief negotiator Javad Zarif was ordered to stop screaming at Kerry behind closed doors.
In his Friday remarks, al-Hoda went on to say that Obama is set on striking a deal with Iran by June.
“Both Republicans and Democrats want these negotiations with Iran, but they fight each other for partisan interests,” he was quoted as saying. “Obama wants the negotiation to succeed so his party can win the next election and Republicans want to stop him.”
Alam al-Hoda also celebrated Iran’s expansion in the region and controversial activities in war-torn countries such as Syria and Yemen.
“Today, the resistance crescent has gone beyond Syria and Lebanon and reached to Yemen,” he said. “Today the resistance front is in control of Strait of Hormuz and Bab-el-Mandeb.”
The “U.S. and Israel have not been so weak anytime before,” he continues. “All these events are being managed by the hidden Imam,” a revered religious figure in Shia Islam.
There’s the “hidden Imam” again. But don’t worry. I have it on the best authority – liberal foreign policy experts – that whenever a high ranking Iranian talks about the coming apocalypse and return of the Hidden Imam, they don’t really believe it. It’s for domestic consumption.
I suppose it’s apropos that Kerry would want to switch out Obama for Khamenei. Any man who screams “Death to America” at least once a week is OK in his book.
UPDATE: December 30, 2016
John Kerry was and is a traitor to the American fighting forces and the basic principles that our country is founded upon..
Let’s start at the beginning. As an officer, John Kerry was put in charge of men, young men of honor and perseverance who were sent to fight and die in a hellhole called Vietnam. Kerry spent his time there taking every step he could for personal and career gain, and the integrity of the agenda he was given was secondary. The main focus for Kerry was to write up as many medals as he could for himself and get out. In the book “About Face” Colonel David Hacksworth, shows while there were many fine officers that served there in all branches of the military, John Kerry stood out and continues to stand out as a poor example of what an officer should be.
There has been much written about his going to Paris to undermine the accords at that time, as a panderer to the Viet Cong. His “Winter Soldier” testimony at the Fulbright Commission was nothing more than an attempt to undermine the war and his fellow soldiers. He was once again, looking out for himself and using the publicity to further his own career. The two treasonous people remember from that time are John Kerry and Hanoi Jane Fonda. Neither of them can ever be forgiven by the brave and loyal men who served in our fighting forces.
As a Senator, John Kerry continued to undermine our country by meeting with the Sandinistas in Nicaragua in an attempt to secure a “peace” in which he sided with the terrorists. Over his entire career he has sabotaged every opportunity that our country has had to turn back those who move forward in the destruction of freedom in vast areas of the world. Kerry is of the type too prevalent in this administration that feel that peace can only come if freedom loving people step back and allow the terrorists to win. Kerry seems to think, like Hillary Clinton, that activity means results. To gain those results you must gain the respect of those you are dealing with. Nothing in Kerry past would cause any discerning adversary to give this man even a modicum of respect. A loudmouth who echoes the talking points of Americas enemies for almost half a century, Kerry is a perfect fit for the progressive Democrat party of today. Failure in dealings with ISIS, Assad, North Korea, Iran, Russia and many other terrorist regimes only further proves that John Kerry is still first and foremost out for himself, to burnish his resume and still considers himself the only smart diplomat that our country can depend on in his own mind.
John Kerry has met with Mahmoud Abbas along with Timochenko the head of the narco-terrorist group FARC. Even knowing that Timonchenko has a five million dollar bounty on his head from Kerry’s own State Department, Kerry felt that giving land and security over to these men was the gift that was expected. Abbbas then met in the White House with our Muslim in chief for two hours. Kerry did not bring peace, but threats and blackmail from the terror organizations he scurried off so fast to meet. Giving up prisoners for peace, the Israelis counted on Kerry to assist in the transfers and received nothing but more terrorism. Of course, Kerry blamed the Israelis.
John Kerry has been the lackey for these terrorists. Like the little boy that no one wants, he sits at their feet on the floor admiring Assad, FARC, Iran and the PLO in a futile attempt to gain acceptance for his mindset that is anathema to everything our country stands for.
The latest Kerry attempt to throw another democratic country under the bus, much as he did with his fellow soldiers is based and lies and omissions of real facts. His speech was based on an agenda of treating the Israeli people as second class citizens, and to place the blames on them, rather than on the Palestinians.
To this day, following the orders of the Obama administration and the progressives in charge, there is still no admission of the terrorism and attacks in the streets of Israel except in passing. Even then, it is the Jews fault, because they will not back down from the sovereignty of the country they have fought so long and hard for.
John Kerry stated that “Israel can be Jewish or Democratic. It cannot be both. This strikes me as a special kind of stupid. Israel since the inception has been a democracy. In his speech he stated that the Israeli government is the most “right wing in Israeli history”. Arabs and Jews live together is a harmony that Christians are not allowed in Arab States.
Our Muslim in chief, Barack Obama has declared that there can be no peace with a Palestinian terror state alongside Israel. Kerry dutifully sewed this during his speech without understanding that there can be no Palestinian terror state next to Israel because the Palestinians along with the rest of the Arab world want to wipe Israel off the map. Blaming Israel for not making concessions is just ludicrous. They have always given up Gaza, which led to nothing more than an increase in the rocket attacks. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert offered a good portion of Judea and Samaria, historically Israeli lands to the Palestinians, and land swaps linking this territory to Gaza. The deal was refused by Abba, the same man that Kerry is trying so hard to placate.
The settlements, argued over and causing a great wringing of hands by both Kerry and Obama are not illegal. If they were to be turned over to the Palestinians it would be as before, the Jews would be attacked and murdered in pogroms to make the entire area free of Jews. There are over a million Arabs living and working Israel, how many Jews or Christians for that matter would the Muslims allow to live in their territories?
We must also remember that this is also the same administration that is giving aid to the Palestinian government and attempted to boycott weapons in the outbreak of the Gaza terror war. Not mentioned by Kerry was the forgotten Israeli settlements that were abandoned by force to give to the Palestinians. The Israeli government forcibly removed settlers in Gaza and we rewarded with rocket attacks from the areas that they turned over to the Palestinians.
This debacle, pushed by this administration in the Security Council and passed because of a petty and narcissistic Secretary of State and Muslin in chief being too cowardly to veto it and protect the only democracy in the Middle East will stand as an impediment to peace. Perhaps that is what the Muslim Brotherhood lackeys in this administration were looking for, another fine war to settle the American people into.
It is informative, that even Democrats such as House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer is telling the White House to stop, to shut up, and let the two sides figure it out. The United States has long maintained that the agreements reached must be between the two sides of the conflict. It must be negotiated between the adversaries, not by the United Nations, not by the United States and definitely not by this administration. In particular, but a Secretary of State that panders to terrorists, or a Muslim President that allows them to flourish.

John Kerry Caught Red Handed in Unlawful, Backdoor Iran Deal
In America these days, we are learning that 8 years of democratic debauchery is enough to keep any next President busy for the foreseeable future, but Donald Trump really is making quick work of it.
Let’s be honest: Trump inherited a mess the likes of which we may never see again in our lifetimes. The liberal left was so wholly enamored in the character that Barack Obama played, that they paid no mind to the policies of the anti-gun globalist. Obama essentially had a free pass to galavant about the world as he pleased, diplomatically selling the American people up the river.
When you apply the left’s ancient rule of “when they give us an inch, we’ll take a mile”, and you end up in a political quagmire more suffocating than any old-timey quicksand pit in a jungle movie.
So Trump has been hard at work dismantling the democratic deity’s doings for over a year now, and has been making some serious progress. Now, with his attention focused on renegotiating the horrifically lopsided Iran Nuclear Deal, it seems as though there is a snake in the grass, secretly coiling and toiling in order to obstruct the President of the United States.
And, when it comes to the legality of this maneuver, there are some serious concerns.
Now it will be up to the DOJ to decide whether or not to take a harder look at Kerry’s possibly treasonous actions.
Given the inaction of the intelligence community in recent weeks, as well as the overall feeling that the Deep State is far more entrenched in the Beltway than previously believed, we won’t be holding our breath.
UPDATE: May 16, 2018
Congress has called for the immediate arrest of John Kerry after evidence emerged that he ran a shadow government in order to save the Iran deal.
The chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Devin Nunes (R-CA), is calling for the former Secretary of State to be charged for violating the Logan Act – a crime that could result in a three year prison sentence.
According to US law, no private citizen may meet with a foreign power to negotiate a deal. Since Kerry was working directly against US policy and trying to sabotage the elected government the charge of treason would apply.
The chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence is calling for former Secretary of State John Kerry to be the very first person ever arrested under a constitutionally dubious 1799 law.
Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA) made his demand to imprison the former Massachusetts Democrat under the Logan Act, which could theoretically result in three year in federal prison.
The allegations followed a new Boston Globe report on former Secretary of State Kerry working to save the Iran nuclear deal.
Here is the text of the Logan Act:
1 Stat. 613, January 30, 1799, codified at 18 U.S.C. § 953 (2004).
Who has the authority?
CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY FOR FOREIGN RELATIONS
Article II, Section 2, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution includes the ‘Treaty Clause,’ which empowers the President of the United States to propose and chiefly negotiate agreements, which must be confirmed by the Senate, between the United States and other countries, which become treaties between the United States and other countries after the advice and consent of a supermajority of the United States Senate.

John Kerry: A Traitor for the Ages.
We had news this past week that John Kerry is undermining the United States once again, working with her enemies, this time the Iranian mullahs trying to salvage his deeply flawed Iran nuclear deal.
Kerry’s notorious 2015 nuclear deal featured the transfer of billions of dollars (1.7 billion of it on pallets stacked with cash) to the world’s leading exporter of Islamic terrorism. Iran’s fanatical mullahs were essentially put on a pathway to acquire nuclear weapons at the end of 10 years. What was even crazier about the deal is that compliance and inspections were to be handled by Iran itself.
As President Trump cancelled the deal and slammed Iran with further sanctions, Kerry has once again gone back to his arrogant old tricks — meeting with the enemy in direct opposition to official American policy. He refuses to deny that told the Iranians to hang on until Trump leaves office, once again giving aid and comfort to a leading American enemy.
Yes, we have seen this movie before.
On April 23, 1971, a young US Navy reserve officer, John Kerry, who had been awarded three Purple Hearts, a Bronze Star and a Silver Star medal for service in Vietnam, appeared before the Senate Committee of Foreign Relations and described the American military. Via NPR:
“They had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam in addition to the normal ravage of war and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country.. . . these are not isolated incidents but crimes committed on a day-to-day basis with the full awareness of officers at all levels of command.”
A short time later, he and his group of protesters threw medals and service ribbons over a fence in front of the US Capitol. As CNN noted, “Kerry threw away the ribbons from his medals, along with the actual medals of two veterans who were not able to attend the ceremony, according to the candidate’s Web site.” A few weeks following, he was arrested when he and other tried to disrupt a march to honor American POWs captured in Vietnam..
But that wasn’t the worst of it. Turns out that as a reserve Navy officer, in direct violation of the Code of Military Justice, he traveled to Paris while Henry Kissinger was negotiating an end to the war with the Communists. He admitted, “I have been to Paris. I have talked with both delegations at the peace talks, that is to say the Democratic Republic of Vietnam and Provisional Revolutionary Government,” the latter a South Vietnamese communist group with ties to the Viet Cong. .
This was the same John Kerry who published a book that year entitled, The New Soldier, a large paperback (Collier Books. Library of Congress number 76-171990) about so-called veterans against the Vietnam War. He wrote,
“We are probably angriest about all that we were told about Vietnam and the mystical war against communism.” He went on to say, “A new soldier has returned to America to a nation torn apart by the killing we were asked to do. . . .We will not quickly join those who march on Veteran’s Day . . .We will not readily join the American Legion or the Veterans of Foreign Wars . . We will not take solace from the creation of monuments.”
Kerry’s group went as far as signing a “People’s Peace Treaty” that was reportedly drafted in Communist East Germany in December 1970. The nine points were all taken from a list of Viet Cong conditions for ending the war. Kerry backed the treaty.
John Kerry is a man who has instinctively sided with America’s enemies his entire career. He was one of the reasons America lost the war in Vietnam. But in the liberal state of Massachusetts, he went on to become lieutenant governor and a US Senator. With sweet justice, Kerry’s vicious and malicious slander of American veterans and his disgusting behavior came back to haunt him when he “reported for duty” to run for president in 2004 with his Vietnam medals proudly displayed in his office.
An angry group of Vietnam veterans known as the Swift Boat Vets, some of whom served with him and knew him well, blew the whistle and actively campaigned against him. Summarized in the book “Unfit for Command,” (Regnery Publishing, Library of Congress number ISBN-0-89526-017-4), Kerry essentially faked his three Purple Hearts and his Silver Star, which he received for shooting an unarmed Vietnamese villager in the back. (Page 85) The awards enabled him to leave Vietnam service after four months. Ironically, it was Kerry himself who admitted he was an unindicted war criminal. (page 155).
Kerry’s candidacy raised a fundamental issue that the American people couldn’t help but notice, “If you lack moral standards, you can’t enforce the Uniform Code of Military Justice. If you’ve committed treason against your country, you can’t be the commander in chief.” (Reckless Disregard, Buzz Patterson, page 89. Library of Congress 0-89526-086-7)
Kerry never released his service records and for good reason. He left the Navy with a less than honorable discharge. He was ultimately issued an honorable discharge in 1978 on the orders of then President Jimmy Carter after Carter’s notorious blanket pardon of the Vietnam-era draft dodgers, according to Military Magazine October 2014).
Vietnam military leader Gen Giap wrote in his 1985 memoirs that if it weren’t for the war protesters and the lack of American resolve, Hanoi would have surrendered to the United States. In other words, the liberals convinced the North Vietnamese that they could win. (Patterson, page 89.) Kerry was later featured as a friend in one of Hanoi’s anti-American war museums.
Meanwhile, his anti-American bias never ceased.
In April 1985, a few months after taking his Senate seat, Kerry traveled to Nicaragua and cozied up to President Daniel Ortega, whose leftist Sandinista government had strong ties to Cuba and the Soviet Union and were rightfully accused of human rights abuses.
In 2005, Kerry returned to his old theme of slandering American troops when he falsely claimed U.S. forces were “terrorizing” the Iraqi people. He told Bob Schieffer on Face the Nation, “There is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children, you know, women….”
In 2006 at a Democratic campaign rally in California, Kerry told a group of college students, “You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.”
Kerry has long been an enemy of Israel and a friend of the Islamic Republic of Iran and its nuclear weapons development program. In 2017, he was accused of having an “acrid and obsessive” place in his heart for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Israel. He has blamed Israel for the rise of Islamic State and claims in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, Islamic State’s ideology “has nothing to do with Islam.”
Earlier this year, the Jerusalem Post reported:
Former US secretary of state John Kerry met in London with a close associate of (Palestinian Authority) President Mahmoud Abbas, Hussein Agha, for a long and open conversation. … Kerry told him to tell Abbas … Trump will not remain in office for a long time. It was reported that Kerry said that within a year there was a good chance that Trump would not be in the White House.
After Kerry’s most recent meetings with the Iranians as a private citizen, the president tweeted: “John Kerry had illegal meetings with the very hostile Iranian Regime, which can only serve to undercut our great work to the detriment of the American people. He told them to wait out the Trump Administration! Was he registered under the Foreign Agents Registration Act?”
John Kerry had illegal meetings with the very hostile Iranian Regime, which can only serve to undercut our great work to the detriment of the American people. He told them to wait out the Trump Administration! Was he registered under the Foreign Agents Registration Act? BAD!

For the record, Article 3 of the US Constitution: “Section 3. Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.” The Logan Act (1 Stat. 613, 18 U.S.C. § 953, enacted January 30, 1799) is a United States federal law that criminalizes negotiation by unauthorized persons with foreign governments having a dispute with the United States
So here’s the real question: Is John Kerry a despicable American traitor? The answer is definitely a big YES.
