Kerry Gets Caught In Another Lie About His Yacht

From CNN:

State Department admits Kerry was on yacht day of Egypt coup

By Jake Tapper | July 5, 2013

(CNN) – After the emergence of photographs showing Secretary of State John Kerry on his 76-foot yacht “Isabel” on Nantucket Sound on Thursday, the State Department issued an embarrassing correction Friday morning, back-tracking and acknowledging that the Secretary was in fact on the yacht on Wednesday, the day the Egyptian military staged a coup against democratically-elected Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy.

Originally, State Department officials were quick to deny a Wednesday tweet from CBS News’ Mosheh Oinounou [sic] that: “A @CBSThisMorning producer just spotted Secretary of State Kerry on yacht in the Nantucket Boat Basin. No response when she shouted ‘Morsi.’”

The following posts appeared on Twitter:

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki issued a statement Wednesday saying “any report or tweet that he was on a boat is completely inaccurate.”

Jen Psaki, who played such a large role in re-writing the Benghazi talking points to cover for Hillary? That Jen Psaki? But notice that Ms. Psaki denied this even when there was photographic proof. They are that brazen.

“Since his plane touched down in Washington at 4 am, Secretary Kerry was working all day and on the phone dealing with the crisis in Egypt,” Psaki said. “He participated in the White House meeting with the President by secure phone and was and is in non-stop contact with foreign leaders, and his senior team in Washington and Cairo.”

He was probably trying to figure out ways to send Mr. Morsi even more money.

But overnight, photographs emerged showing Kerry on “Isabel” and taking in some kayaking on Thursday. The New York Daily News just published some of them.

On Friday morning, Psaki issued a second statement, acknowledging that Kerry was “briefly on his boat on Wednesday.” …

In other words, she only corrected her lie because she was caught red-handed, with even more photographs. This is the Obama administration’s MO in a nutshell.

Anyway, lest we forget, this is not the first time Kerry has been caught lying about his yacht. Remember, he first tried to deny that he had moored his yacht in New Hampshire to avoid paying the Massachusetts excise taxes on it.

According to the Boston Herald: "Cash-strapped Massachusetts still collects a 6.25 percent sales tax and an annual excise tax on yachts. Sources say Isabel sold for something in the neighborhood of $7 million, meaning Kerry saved approximately $437,500 in sales tax and an annual excise tax of about $70,000…"

Meanwhile, we have this very timely report from Reuters:

Wife of Secretary of State Kerry flown to Boston hospital

By Arshad Mohammed [sic] and Ian Simpson | July 7, 2013

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Secretary of State John Kerry’s wife, philanthropist [sic] and heiress Teresa Heinz Kerry, was flown on Sunday to a top Boston hospital from the Massachusetts island of Nantucket with an unspecified medical condition.

Glen Johnson, a State Department official who serves as Kerry’s personal spokesman, announced her illness but did not give details. Heinz Kerry, 74, was in critical but stable condition, a Boston newspaper reported…

Her condition is serious but unspecified. And her condition is critical but stable. Got it.

Earlier, a source close to the family said Heinz Kerry’s trip to the hospital from the family’s summer residence in Nantucket, an island where many wealthy Americans have vacation homes, was necessitated by a "medical condition" rather than an accident.

The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Heinz Kerry was flown to Boston on her own plane.

On its website, the Boston Herald newspaper quoted Cottage Hospital spokesman Noah Brown as saying Heinz Kerry was admitted to the emergency room in critical condition. Her condition has since stabilized, the paper quoted him as saying. Brown said he had been asked to refer questions to the State Department.

Kerry and his wife have long vacationed on Nantucket, about 30 miles off the south coast of Cape Cod…

But Kerry wasn’t vacationing. He was working. Jen Psaki says so.

    Just following the example of TCP who was golfing
    whilst the Navy SEAL team was killing Usama. They
    had to fit a business coat over his togs for the photoshoot.

    The timing of Mrs Kerry does, at first blush appear suspicious. The left will then guilt people over being critical of the administration’s and Kerry’s lies by accusing them of being cruel while his wife is ill.

    I seem to recall, though Hitlery doesn’t, about a “concussion” she suffered when the Benghazi kerfuffle began.

    Creative lying. Seems to work quite well.

  3. Enthalpy

    Jen Pesaki doesn’t have the truth in her, nor does her boss, Kerry. Although we probably deserve to be represented by these POS based on our lack of vigilance, it is sad. We should get rid of every one of them before they dispense with elections altogether.

  4. Kerry, Lies, Boats. Haven’t we seen this movie already?

    BTW – John? You still wallowing in the money the Heinz family made, Theresa stole and you indulge yourself with? How’s that smooth place between your legs feel, John?
