Folks, there is a story unfolding in Washington, D.C. right now that should intrigue our national media. Sadly, it seems that the media is ignoring what could be the scandal of a generation.
Last week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, revealed to the world that Iran had acted in bad faith when they hammered out the Nuclear Deal, and that they had been lying to the world every moment since the nefarious deal was concluded.
This news shocked most of the watching world, but our left-wing politicians and their friends in the media seemed surprisingly unperturbed.
Why? Because no one actually expected the Iranians to do what they said they would. Our leaders in the Obama administration obviously didn’t care whether or not the Iranians actually stopped trying to build nuclear weapons. They just wanted to make it SEEM as if they had accomplished something in the fight against Iranian radicalization.
Now, a week later, and our nation’s favorite turncoat – John Kerry – is actively working against his people again.
The media is describing it as “shadow diplomacy,” we might better recognize it as treason.
The National Review Online explains what Kerry has been up to:
Kerry reportedly met for the second time with Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif at the United Nations building in New York two weeks ago to review diplomatic strategies designed to derail President Trump’s plan to exit the Obama-era non-proliferation agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
The deal — signed by six countries in 2015 after months of negotiation led by Kerry — committed Iran to halt the development of their nuclear weapons program for a decade in exchange for a reduction in economic sanctions.
Intent on preserving the deal he negotiated, Kerry has reportedly met with a number of other world leaders, including German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier and French President Emmanuel Macron, both of whom continue to vocally support the deal.
Kerry’s active involvement in attempting to preserve the deal comes as a surprise to foreign policy experts.
“It is unusual for a former secretary of state to engage in foreign policy like this, as an actual diplomat and quasi-negotiator,” Michael O’Hanlon, a foreign policy expert at the Brookings Institution, told the Boston Globe. “Of course, former secretaries of state often remain quite engaged with foreign leaders, as they should, but it’s rarely so issue-specific, especially when they have just left office.”
O’Hanlon isn’t the only one who is surprised by Kerry’s decision to work counter the duly-elected Trump administration.
Former Democrat Vice Presidential candidate, Joe Lieberman, was shocked to learn that Kerry was behaving so grotesquely. He told Fox News that what Kerry was doing was wholly inappropriate.

The President’s newest lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, appeared on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos where he incredulously wondered why the media cared more about General Flynn violating the Logan Act than they did when John Kerry did.
In fact, as Giuliani rightly points out… the media seemed to be flagrantly ignoring Kerry’s crime to focus on stupidity surrounding a porn star.
This is another tangent like, you know, chasing the Flynn tangent when it turns out that John Kerry is now violating the Logan Act and nobody seems to care. You haven’t asked me about that…
We missed John Kerry! We missed John Kerry!

Over on Fox & Friends, an obviously trolling Dr. Sebastian Gorka mocked the media for their sudden disinterest in criminal activity. Gorka wondered when the FBI and the DOJ would be scheduling their raid of John Kerry’s house (alluding to the raid on General Flynn’s home).
Pointing out that the FBI now knows that Flynn never “colluded” with Russia, but that we all now know that John Kerry most certainly colluded with Iran, Gorka wonders when they’ll visit the same level of scrutiny on the former Secretary of State. (Knowing full well they never will.)
“I just want to know now after this report came out about Kerry colluding (this is collusion, real collusion). When are FBI agents, with guns drawn, going to raid his house on Nantucket, in Boston, in Georgetown? Because this is the largest state sponsor of terrorism. It still is. Iran is the largest sponsor.
And this man, without any official title, with no mandate, he’s not in a transition team, he doesn’t work for the U.s. government — he’s meeting with the Iranian foreign minister to save this outrageously bad deal? I want to see the prosecution for this occur.”

Gorka is right.
Sadly, I think we all know that our chances of seeing the FBI raid Kerry’s many homes is slim-to-none.
Because in Washington, D.C. only Republicans are worthy of investigating, and only Democrats can commit criminal acts willy-nilly.
