John Kerry Doesn’t Want Americans To “Know What’s Going On”

A dozen years ago this month, we were fighting our hardest to keep John Kerry from winning the presidency. Now, we just wish we didn’t have to hear from Kerry—now secretary of state—anymore.

But since he still speaks up from time to time, we might as well tell you about how he recently said he wants media to stop covering terrorism attacks so “people wouldn’t know what’s going on.” Yes, you heard it right. Apparently Kerry now uses the Hillary Clinton playbook and believes keeping secrets from the American people is the best way to control them.

No doubt part of that has to do with Kerry’s aversion to private firearm ownership by law-abiding Americans. In the 2004 election, Kerry’s farcical act at being pro-gun was so pathetic that it likely hurt his chances more than helping them.
