Posted on 08/08/2004 11:44:55 AM PDT by Merry
The Democrat National Committee has prepared a full-scale assault against the Vietnam Veterans for Truth to draw their character and veracity into question, according to one anonymous source inside the DNC. The campaign of character assassination is scheduled to coincide with the release of the book Unfit for Command which reveals inconvenient facts for the Kerry campaign.
We have prepared what we call Brown Books that contain damaging military records, personal credit histories, medical histories, psychiatric histories, divorce records, you name it, our source told us. The Brown Books are so-called because of their distinctive plain brown covers, which contain no words. Some books have already been delivered to Kerry-friendly reporters. Others are on their way, our source told us. When asked if we could have a copy, our source declined, saying there is a limited number of Brown Books and they have been carefully inventoried to control in whose hands the books ended up.
Ultimately the Brown Books will end up in the hands of pro-Kerry news agencies and reporters. According to our source, who demanded to remain anonymous for fear of retribution, The New York Times is already on the hook to run a negative series on the Vets, as is the Boston Globe, which is owned by the Times. (Editors Note: The Globe has already been caught attempting to attack the veracity of George Elliott, Kerrys commanding officer in Vietnam.)
In addition, the DNC has deployed a six member team from their press shop whose sole responsibility will be to spin and counter-spin stories about the members of Vietnam Veterans for Truth with pro-Kerry media entities, like the Times.
When asked if this was just another example of John Kerry slandering Vietnam Vets like he did in 1971 as a member of the Vietnam Veterans Against the War our source snapped, No! This is warfare. The only way were going to get out of this is to force everyone to question their motives and credibility.
If they want to spread rumors and stories about John Kerry, well spread rumors and stories about them. And some of the things they did in Vietnam were a lot worse than what they say John Kerry did, our source concluded ominously.
Stay tuned. We will keep you posted as this nasty story develops. Posted on Sunday, August 08 @ 14:36:36 EDT by admin
Vietnam vets must be defended this time around. The left can never be allowed to get away with this bs.
It's us against the powerful media. The MSM wants Kerry to win and will make sure of it at all costs. These vets are just ordinary citizens trying to tell the truth.
Well, good. This matter is being taken seriously, as it should be.
I wonder what this is costing the DNC?
The Dem attack machanics had better be careful...."B" mode.
The SBV's have stared down the Viet Cong and survived. Staring down the likes of Chris Lehane et al should be child's play.
Are they as stupid as they sound ? Do it RATS, you will never live long enough to regret it.
Thus far, no answers from McCain and no letters printed but I know my contribution is helping them have their say.
If Kerry will stoop so low to gain the highest office, imagine what he would do to keep it.
The ONLY way? How about telling the TRUTH? You can't do that, though, CAN you?
These vets WILL be defended this time.
They are extra-ordinary citizens! They are talking straight, and making responsive answers to their detractors. They could have just "laid low" and let nature take its course. It takes courage to do what they are doing now.
I think contributions will flood in.
But I don't think the Dems are going to do it: they're going to rumor it, and see if that works. But, remember, every time people look more closely at the vets, they look more closely at Kerry, and that's gotta be dangerous from the Dem point of view.
In addition, anything done to the Swifties could also be done to the "Band of Brothers," who probably are supporting Kerry because if his medals are called into question, so are theirs (since he put them in for those awards in events that now appear never to have happened).
Perfect. The Dems have taken the bait. The more they whine about the swifties, the more the story stays in the media!!!
You'll notice by comparison... that the Bush team just released all of Bush's records regarding his guard service. They didn't try to stop the media from reporting it, nor did they beat up on the messenger's background. The messenger's politics, sure. This is going to backfire on sKerry like a giant drain plug being pulled out from under his campaign.
Nuts & Sluts -- typical DNC tactics
God I hope so. I sent my $25 to the swift boat vets this morning. If the media keeps pissing me off, I'll keep sending money.
How? Forgive me, but sounding off on FR is, to coin a cliche that happens to fit, preaching to the choir.What else can we do? Writing your congressperson(s) is an exercise in futility IMO. Perhaps you and others have something else in mind.I'm eager to hear it.
On Friday, as I was writing the Swift Vets a check for $100 my 22 year old son handed me $50 and asked me to increase the check to $150.
Do we want to be party to bashing vets, even Kerry suppporters, when some of them may be real heroes?
All Kerry has to do is release his records. THIS IS HIS RESPONSE???? Oh boy.
Wish I could afford to do the same. That apparently is the most effective way to help.Pro bono legal help would also be very valuable to the Swifties.
Rotten dims attack plan ping.
Shouldn't that read: We have prepared what we call Brown Shirt Books???
Costing the DNC/Soros? The people manning this are probably doing it for free, such is their hatred and fear. We could do the same to them.
John Kerry : "war hero" or a "war criminal"
Answer the question Kerry!
Did you lie about your "heroics" or the "war crimes"?
Can't have it both ways!
RELASE ALL YOUR MILITARY RECORDS BEFORE NOV 2nd!
Unless you are hiding something?
If the dems actually pull this crap, I think they will be administering the "coup de gras" to themselves...nothing like shooting yourself in the foot, this time they are aiming for their own head...they are attacking the messengers not the message...Kerry needs to release his records..if he won't and this happens there will likely be a lawsuit and the records will be subpoened in discovery...I don't know if Kerry could stop their release on privacy grounds if the DNC is sued...it will be interesting....
Damn skippy. I want Teresa's tax records and Kerry's war records.
What are they hiding??
If the Dems try a stunt like this it will backfire on them.
Copy the articles you see here on FR, ALONG WITH THE LINK, and use your email address book!
Send the stuff out, ask everyone to do the same...it's amazing how many "non-political" folk end up hearing this stuff and taking action.
The big question is will Mccain come out to defend the Swiftboat veterans when this DNC smear campaign comes out.
This is great - Kerry's FOUR MONTHS in Vietnam being used as a major plank for potus? Hahahaha. All the Swift Boat Truth vets need to do is cast doubt on Kerry, basically just talk trash, appear on tv, and then get in on the book tour. Hey Dem's, you like dirty politics (Moore, Garafolo, Hollywood, Whoopi, Franken, et al)? Right back atcha. Awesome that Bush has distanced himself from this brutal fight. Getting into a boat with Kerry is like getting into a car driving over a bridge with Teddy K. - just don't do it.
That includes Effin' Kerry and his band of bro's - no?
BTW .. any coment from McCain yet on this??
sign the form
ONE EIGHT OH!
Here's some pertinent kerry history!!!!
Below is excerpted statements to Congress, 22 April, 1971 by Lt. John F. Kerry USNR(Inactive Reserve Status).
"Mr. KERRY. My feeling, Senator, is undoubtedly this Congress, and I don't mean to sound pessimistic, but I do not believe that this Congress will, in fact, end the war as we would like to, which is immediately and unilaterally and, therefore, if I were to speak I would say we would set a date and the date obviously would be the earliest possible date. But I would like to say, in answering that, that I do not believe it is necessary to stall any longer. I have been to Paris. I have talked with both delegations at the peace talks, that is to say the Democratic Republic of Vietnam and the Provisional Revolutionary Government and of all eight of Madam Binh's points it has been stated time and time again, and was stated by Senator Vance Hartke when he returned from Paris, and it has been stated by many other officials of this Government, if the United States were to set a date for withdrawal the prisoners of war would be returned."
Furhter paired down to:
"I have been to Paris. I have talked with both delegations at the peace talks, that is to say the Democratic Republic of Vietnam and the Provisional Revolutionary Government and of all eight of Madam Binh's points..."(kerry and his VVAW negotiated in Paris with the then enemy.)
Stated by kerry to Our U.S. Congress which is in the Official Congressional Record, 22 April, 1971.
I'll let ALL of you think your own thoughts about this, however, I cannot for the life of me, picture kerry in any elected office, never mind being Commander in Chief!!!!
Why kerry was not indicted, tried and convicted for Treason and Sedition under the appropriate Articles, We will never know.
The Media SHAMELESSLY hides this TRUTH(In the Congressional Record, dated 22 April, 1971) from the Public!!!! They are equally Treasonous and Seditionous as kerry is!!!!This Blatant Example of the media shows that we no longer have a FREE and TRUTHFUL Press(Straight ALL the Way LEFT of Center)!!!!
kerry had his VVAW which led to the deaths of thousands or hundreds of thousands of deaths in Viet Nam, Laos and Cambodia after he and his VVAW accomplished their mission in getting U.S. withdrawal in South Viet Nam. kerry and his VVAW forever tarnished the image of U.S. Viet Nam Vets!!!!
The Democratic Party is no longer the Democratic Party!!!! For them to select kerry and his two forunners Clinton and Gore show they have become the party of our enemies!!!!
We cannot ALLOW this to STAND!!!!

I have at least one or two interesting posts about said such subject matter, below:
More: Communist Party Backs the RATS!!!! below:

More of the Enemy within!!!!
Even More!!!! Red China Backs kerry!!!! See Below:
Avoid the Socialists/Communists backed johns(not capitolised on purpose) like the Plague!!!!
Thanks for the suggestion, gramma.
And another thing .. these Vets aren't question Kerry's private life ..
This may be America's chance to make things up to the VietNam Veterans who were treated so horribly when they returned home years ago.
This may also be America's chance to give Kerry what he deserves for having slandered our honorable soldiers and for having caused the POW's such atrocities while they were in the cruelty of those VC prisons.
