Skip to comments.INDICT JOHN KERRY FOR TREASON, MR. ATTORNEY GENERAL
Posted on 11/11/2004 5:56:26 PM PST by CHARLITE
The election is finally over. For those of us who have had to suffer through the last 18 months of debates, primaries, polls, pundits, and attack ads, it is a blessed relief. Now, perhaps, politicians will actually start to do their jobs instead of yak-yak-yakking about how terrible (fill in the blank) is and how they'd do a much better job.
Thankfully, President Bush won re-election. I say thankfully because 1) I strongly supported his candidacy and 2) I did not want a traitor in the White House. Again. America has four more years of strong, compassionate leadership to look forward to, and I for one am most grateful.
However, this election brought to light some rather disturbing facts about a certain Massachusetts senator, and I don't mean the one who carries a single set of water wings in his overhead visor, either. Many of us found, to our disbelief, that we had someone in Congress who was, and is, a criminal. Not just your average, run of the mill, let's-tax-the-snot-out-of-the-middle-class-so-I-can-get-a-building-named-after-me criminal, either.
A man--more a slug in an expensive suit with a $400 haircut, really--who sold out his nation WHILE WEARING ITS UNIFORM. Someone who lied about his ''heroism'' in order to get three purple hearts and make a mad dash out of harm's way, leaving his fellow soldiers behind. Someone who, upon his return, sullied the name of every man and woman who served in Vietnam. Someone who, with a straight face, lied under oath to Congress about atrocities he never witnessed. Someone who actually claimed to have committed war crimes. Someone who, while still in the Navy reserves, MET WITH THE ENEMY. In Paris. At least twice.
John Forbes Kerry. AKA Jean François Kerrée, The Poodle, Hanoi John, sKerry, The Gigolo, and, if you hang around some veteran's discussion areas, terminology a bit too ''intense'' to be mentioned in a family publication.
A couple of months ago, Front Page Magazine, an online publication, ran an article entitled ''John Kerry, Criminal'' which outlined the evidence regarding the senator's violations of the law. To wit, 10 USC 904, part of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, and 18 USC 953, also known as the Logan Act. The authors of the original article, Henry Mark Holzer and Erika Holzer, went into quite extensive detail as to the law and its structure, the evidence against Kerry, legal precedents, and other information that could be used in a formal indictment.
The Holzers' article was quite good. It was also, as my critique of the article noted, completely ignored by the mainstream press. There was no call for an investigation. Indeed, as the folks at Swift Boat Veterans for Truth found out, it was they who were vilified for daring to bring this issue to the fore--despite the fact that Kerry himself ran his campaign on his so-called ''war hero'' status.
However, I think we all understood that there would be no investigation during the campaign. It would be ''bad form'' and look as though President Bush were unjustly attacking his opponent for mere political gain. Indeed, the news media constantly called on President Bush to condemn the SwiftVets and their ads. Fortunately, Dubya did not fall for this trap, for had he spoken out directly against those particular ads, he would have been in violation of the Campaign Finance Reform law, and the media would then attack him for that. Not that they ever bothered to mention Kerry's violations of that same law, of course.
Now we find out, after the election of course, that Kerry's own diary states that he met with ''Vietnamese terrorists'' all those years ago. Terrorists. Hmmmm. Aren't we currently at war with terrorists? If Kerry consorted with terrorists in the past, what's to say he wouldn't do so again? Somebody please subpoena that diary before it becomes kindling for the fireplace in one of those many mansions that Kerry has.
However, the election is now over. Kerry lost. America won. The politics are now over. It's time for America to win something more important than an election.
There is ample evidence, in the aforementioned article, for the attorney general, John Ashcroft, to file an indictment in any federal court of his choosing, against Senator Kerry for the crimes listed. This indictment should be filed before Mr. Ashcroft's resignation from the Department of Justice becomes effective. There is also ample evidence for the Department of Justice to file another set of charges, to wit:
Perjury (in lying to the Congressional Hearing in 1971)
Fraud (in arranging to solicit false information during the ''Winter Soldier'' investigation)
Falsifying Military Documents (for his ''creative'' after-action reports)
War Crimes (for his public admission of same)
Complicity in the extended incarceration of American Prisoners of War
Complicity in the Deaths of American Prisoners of War
Complicity in the Deaths of over One Million South Vietnamese
Complicity in the Deaths of over Two Million Cambodians
Unauthorized Contact/Meetings with the Enemy in a Time of War
Aid and Comfort to the Enemy in a Time of War
Mr. Ashcroft, America has waited for over 33 years for justice to be done. We've waited long enough. I formally call upon you, in your capacity as Attorney General of the United States, to accept this information and related evidentiary materials, and to move with all deliberate speed to draft an indictment on these charges against Senator Kerry. If you are unwilling to draft the document yourself, I'm sure there are plenty of (blasted) lawyers out there who are up to the challenge. The indictment would then permit the Department of Justice to unseal Mr. Kerry's military records, as well as the classified FBI files (some 14 boxes full, if the information I've read is correct) to verify just exactly what Kerry said to Madame Binh and the ''peace'' negotiators in Paris all those years ago.
I also call upon the ''Swift Boat Veterans for Truth'' to file, in civil court, a class-action lawsuit against John Forbes Kerry for libel, slander, and defamation of character, for his statements to Congress in 1971 as well as his anti-war medal/ribbon throwing acts. I also ask those Vietnam veterans who were prisoners of war on or after 22 April 1971 to join in this action and demand reparations for your incarceration, which was extended by John Kerry's perjurous testimony. His lies provided aid and comfort to your jailers, your torturers, and prolonged the war as well as your suffering. If I were you, gentlemen, I'd find a good (blasted) lawyer to work pro bono publico, and stick Kerry for about $500 million. That'll kick in to Teh-RAY-Sah's pin money pretty deep, I'd wager.
I further call upon any members of the Senate with an iota of courage and honor to file a motion to have John Forbes Kerry expelled from the body of Congress, with a loss of all benefits and pensions, under Article XIV, Section 3 of the Constitution of the United States of America. You have within your midst one who is not worthy of your august body. I'm reasonably well informed that you do not need to wait for a conviction in court in order to act; the evidence available now would be sufficient.
Mr. Ashcroft, I know that you are probably unwilling to act on this request, because of political reasons as well as your impending retirement. Well, sir, with all due respect, that's not good enough. Political influences have prevented justice from being done for over three decades. When will those political influences end? Or is there, indeed, one law for the ruled and one law for the rulers? President Bush has been given a mandate. The Executive and Legislative branches of government are now firmly in your grasp. Your political opponents no longer hold sway. To be brutally blunt, it's time to stop pussyfooting around and kick some traitor tail.
Mr. Ashcroft, if you do not, then you will in fact be in violation of the law. I'm no legal eagle, but I think it's called obstruction of justice. The British have another name for it--Perverting the Course of Justice, they call it--and I'm sure there's probably something similar on our books as well. By failing to act, you will let a criminal get away with his crimes. Last I checked, that's not something the attorney general is supposed to do.
Sir, I would advise celerity in this matter. You have, after all, only four years before the next election. If he isn't charged, tried, and convicted by then, and sentence isn't carried out in a prompt manner, then you'll take the risk of the lib/dem/soc/commies returning to the Oval Office. I'm quite sure that they would be more than willing to provide a full pardon to Mr. Kerry, too. After the check cleared, that is.
One more thing. Last I checked, Treason is a capital crime. Although I may be wrong about this, I believe that hanging is the preferred method of execution for traitors. If, by the grace of God, the government actually does prosecute John Forbes Kerry for his crimes and he is found guilty, may I suggest the next attorney general invite two people to stand before the scaffold as witnesses: Jane Fonda and Tom Hayden.
And when the lever is pulled, and that son of a bitch twists in the wind, please convey a message to Fonda and Hayden for me. It's very short, so I'm sure you'll remember it. Just whisper it into their ears: ''You're next.''

Yeah. That'll happen.
Never gonna happen
I do not think he can be indicted. President of the United States Jimmy Carter issued a pardon for "all" of these guys, it is too late.
Whomever wrote this lives in a fantasy land where there are no political consequences for doing dumb things.
Carter didn't pardon Kerry. The pardon he made was for draft dodgers under the Selective Service Act. Kerry's crimes were not committed under the auspices of that law, so he would still be liable.
I read here somewhere that part of the whole deal and it also involved something that Ted Kennedy wrote into law and was that he can't be charged any longer. The wording of the law was such that it almost points right to Kerry behavior.
"This is more than stupid. It's moronic. No, wait, it's terminally retarded."
"Whomever wrote this lives in a fantasy land where there are no political consequences for doing dumb things."
That would be me, actually.
And by your reckoning, Kerry is already living in said "fantasy land" - because he has not had to reap the consequences of his actions - treason - merely because he is so highly connected, politically.
There's an old saying - The law must be for all, otherwise it is for none. There is evidence that Kerry committed a number of crimes - not "dumb things" but felonies. Do you suggest that this be ignored?
I don't pretend that indicting Kerry would take courage. A courage sadly lacking in Washington (for quite some time, I fear). I don't pretend it would be easy. And I don't pretend that it absolutely must and will happen. It should. But should and is are two different things.
But if nobody even tries, then its absolutely certain that nothing will be done. I choose to try. I may fail. But my conscience will be clear, because I at least put effort into the cause instead of just throwing up my hands and giving up before I even began. As you seem to prefer to do.
Oh, and by the way, it's supposed to be "whoever" and not "whomever" in your second paragraph. I used to get that one mixed up, too.
No wonder several of our turncoat cable interviewers (including O'Reilly) did their damndest to trick President Bush into speaking against those ads in particular. If I remember correctly, half of O'Reilly's interview with the president was a continual attempt to badger Bush into answering that narrowly-defined question. Bahstid.
Check the Holzer article at FrontPage Magazine. They explain the circumstances a lot more clearly than I ever could.
Thanks, I will check it out tomorrow.
It doesn't change my point. Trying to bring charges against Kerry, who just lost is ridiculous. It would be the best way to ensure that Republicans are thrown out of office left and right.
The last thing we need to do is to make this loser a martyr. It gains us nothing, because it would never succeed, but it sure would portray us as the evil haters that the media spreads.
Committing a pointless political suicide is stupid, no matter how good your grammar is.
Reminds me of the late, great Rooster Cogburn, who spent the first two years of Bush's first term bitchin' and bellyachin' about bringing Clinton up on charges.
He's now over at LibertyPost, bitchin' and bellyachin' about bringing Clinton up on charges.
LOL. This is how he began the column and this is where he should have ended it. ;-)
Post script: O'Reilly just said on his talk show that Arafat was a killer and has a special place reserved in hell. One of the few commentators, beside Savage, that isn't placing flowers. Thanks, Bill. You're a mixed bag, and maybe not a total bahstid after all.
I hope they bury AraFAG face down, so that he can see where he's going.
"I'm going WHERE???"
"Does that mean I'm not going
to get my virgins??? Whoaa!"
