American ‘diplomacy’ sinks to embarrassing new low

John Kerry arrives a week late with “friend” James Taylor

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry finally arrived in Paris. As he met with France’s Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius and President Francois Hollande to offer condolences on the barbaric terrorist attacks that killed 17 people in Paris last week, Kerry brought along an over-the-hill rocker “friend.”

Barack Obama, whose calendar was bare, was noticeably missing when 40+ world leaders assembled in Paris to participate in a unity march following the slaughters. Millions of people took to the streets in expressions of solidarity in the wake of a series of Islamic terrorist attacks (video) in France.

Appearing on stage with Kerry, James Taylor performed a rendition of Carole King’s “You’ve Got a Friend” in an odd tribute to the victims of the bloody carnage.

Before arriving in Paris, Kerry said of the trip, “My visit to France is basically to share a big hug for Paris and express the affection of the American people for France and for our friends there who have been through a terrible time.”

Attempting to deflect criticism aimed at the out of touch Barack Obama, was Jimmy Carter, who vies with Obama for the “Worst U.S. President Ever“ award. Carter said, “President Obama’s just come back from vacation, and I know how it is when you’ve been gone for a week or two, I think he’s probably got a lot on his desk.”

Many Americans will remember it was French President Jacque Chirac who was the first foreign Head of State to arrive at the White House with a personal message of support and condolences after the radical Islamic-inflicted September 11, 2001 carnage that killed nearly 3000 on American soil.

This abysmal snub by Barack Obama is not only rude, it is embarrassing.

Shortly after Carter’s inane comments, the Wall Street Journal reported that Obama regretted his decision not to send a top White House official to represent the U.S. at the Paris march. The entire episode presented a conundrum for Obama who still can’t bring himself to acknowledge that the ongoing heinous acts of terrorism each have an Islamic jihadist component. That was likely the reason he couldn’t bring himself to personally attend the march with the other heads of state.

It’s past time for Americans to admit what we have taking up space in the Oval Office.

    It was jaw dropping embarrassing to watch the sorry exhibition of Taylor with Lurch Kerry standing next to him in his $5,000 silk suit. While other leaders walk arm in arm with the French to show their support Obama continues with his wishy-washy ways.

    James Taylor? I guess The Monkees were busy.

    • Vince says:

      Yep. Obama thought having Kerry bring the longtime junkie James Taylor to pluck on a guitar was an inspiring choice.

    The Charlie Hebdo shootings were a repressive Islamic assault on free speech, which should immediately resonate with Americans who value our First Amendment. The Kosher market shootings clearly spell out the deeply embedded anti-Semitic component of the false “religion of peace.” Muslims want every knee to bend to Allah. They desire global domination, which includes imposition of repressive Sharia law. Not to acknowledge these facts is to provide the terrorists aid and comfort. Let’s not forget that Obama comes from a Kenyan Muslim family on his father‘s side. And his stepfather Lolo Soetoro, also Muslim, registered little “Barry Soetoro” as a Muslim student in Indonesia where the family lived for several years before Barry was shipped off to Hawaii to live with his maternal grandparents.

    Amidst all of this “history” about the Obama administration we now KNOW everything they do is nothing more than Marxist led propaganda, and sociopathic photo opportunities. How many narcissistic SOCIOPATHS does Obama need to show on the world’s stage that he is one of them?

    How many of those killed in France even knew of James Taylor? They don’t care for many were not even born yet. They care about their OWN NATIONAL security now that Islamic teachings have harmed their citizens, and they see they are being conquered by it.
    It is the “new” Nazi cult which slaughters anyone, or anything, that would speak in opposition to its political theology. Europe is under the sword of hate and submission, not assimilation, but a self imposed segregation of No-Go-Zones to Police & Fire departments.

    It was Obama had covered the Cross of Jesus at Georgetown University, and covered the 14 story mosaic of Jesus on the Cross at Notre Dame University, so will he also cover the Statue of Liberty given to us by France … because it is not submissive to Islam???
    His heart is one of EVIL … and we all should be very much aware that it is the reason for all of his actions and divisiveness.

    Much as I agree with all the above, another thought occurred: What if the skinny Marxist is merely afraid? That arm-in-arm march of leaders was well-guarded, but, I know from Marine Corps Expert Rifleman experience that any half-decent shooter could hit center mass from two or three blocks away on a roof or a middle-top floor.
    That would explain interrupting a wedding on a golf course; only attending in door events; low morale in the Secret Service (because they have nothing to do to protect a “closet-President”) and never, never appearing outdoors near the general public.
    Somebody tell me I’m wrong.

      I disagree with the scenario you set out as being the overriding factor in Obama’s reticence to attend the unity march. Obama and his family appear undisturbed as they venture around Martha’s Vineyard and Hawaii, stopping in ice cream shops and restaurants or meandering through pricey boutiques. He interrupted the golf course wedding because he could. It was simply a way of asserting his superiority. He certainly spends considerable time on numerous golf courses.

      Many of the other national leaders who attended the unity march (obviously France, as well as Germany, England, Belgium, the Netherlands, Spain, Canada and others) have burgeoning Muslim communities, that are hotbeds of political, social and certainly religious unrest. None of them are immune from the virulent hatred of these murderous fanatics who have a blood lust evidenced by their beheadings and slaughter of innocents.

      Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (who would be a prime target for anti-Semitic Muslims) was in attendance bravely marching and alongside Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. Only Barack Obama shamefully kept his distance. I believe it was due to his inability to call out Muslims for anything but praise.

    This is a tempest in a teapot. If Obama had gone it would have made the ceremony all about USA. I think we have bigger problems to worry about. The Government intrusion into peoples lives and the out of control spending on lulu projects that only benefit lobbyists. Our officials need to work for the people instead of us working for them.

    major cyber attacks have taken out the website of Conservative Pamela Geller .
    The website weaselzippers.com also experienced a major attack, but is now back online.

    • Dennis O'Brien says:

      Geller’s site “Atlas Shrugs” has reported honestly on radical Islam for years. I’m sorry to read about this attack, Sam. I’ll continue to check it. Thanks for the info.

    Obama and his tone-deaf, inept administration bumpkins have long since ceased to amaze me. Pray that this country will survive two more years.
