A PRESIDENT KERRY MAY BE ABHORRENT
...BUT IS IT EVEN CONSTITUTIONAL?

WHY JOHN KERRY IS DANGEROUS FOR AMERICA

 

 

by Mia T, 8.21.04


"John Kerry gave the enemy for free what I, and many of my comrades in North Vietnam, in the prison camps, took torture to avoid saying. It demoralized us," says former Vietnam POW Paul Galanti, a highly decorated Navy combat pilot.

Galanti flew 97 combat missions over Vietnam before being shot down and held at the notorious Hanoi Hilton for seven years -- including while Kerry testified.

John Kerry's presence in the SENATE (let alone the Presidency) at the same time as his presence (without his objection) in the Hanoi Museum's Hall of Fame (because of his aid and comfort to the enemy) is unconstitutional. A strict reading (actually the only possible interpretation) of the section cited would lead you to conclude that he should have been barred from the Senate by the rest of the Senators when he showed up for his first day of work, regardless of the will of the voters.

Interesting sidebar: without direct election of Senators, this could have been easily done without the hue and cry about subverting "the will of the people."

Interest sidebar II: Why wouldn't an effort to expel him from the Senate once he's defeated for President be successful?

Yeah, a murderer and worse--a traitor. Sounds like a pair of Senators that our enemies would chose to represent them, had they been given the chance. It's no wonder then that such genocidal foreign leaders as diverse as Kim Jong-il, Usama bin Laden, Yassir Arafat, and the leaders of the Janajaweed and the Interahamwe wholeheartedly endorse John F. Kerry.

Then why is John Kerry even a senator?

Because in the good-old USA, the Constitution doesn't mean anything anymore. Also because no-one has had the balls to actually hold Kerry legally responsible for his actions - which go WAY beyond free speech. He lied to intentionally damage the war effort - thus betraying "his" country.

The US has sunk to a level that a lying traitor can have a real chance at being elected to the most powerful office in the world, and I am ashamed of the fact that American voters are stupid enough to possibly put him there.

Remember - we are talking about the same electorate that elected Clinton TWICE....

And regardless of the actual outcome in November, the simple fact that Kerry is polling well (and in most cases, over Bush) would imply that Kerry has a large following of fellow traitors, liars, thieves, and Ketchup Queens. And yes, I know most polls are rather skewed.

The fact of the matter is - Kerry has an serious chance of winning the election - all it would take is Republicans not showing up. If the RATs get their voters out, we could be in trouble.

And I hope and pray that I am wrong. But I stand by my assertion - a large percentage of voters are either too lazy or too hard-headed (and stupid) to listen to the truth.

...or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.

This section of the Constitution is, at the least, grounds for an indictment of Congress' acceptance of Kerry as a Senator, and questions should be raised as to his fitness for the land's highest office.

Of all people, McCain, should see the obvious conflict between Kerry's Senatorship, his present bid for the presidency, and Amendment 14.

But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.

It would be interesting to see which elected officials vote to keep Kerry in office should the Congress become involved in Kerry's campaign - though I doubt that will happen.

On the off chance that Kerry does becomes president Conservatives will now have a challenge to his legitimacy for that office much as liberals now challenge Bush's legitimacy. Liberals will then be placed in the position of defending him, and his actions, over the years of his term in office - not a happy prospect for them or Kerry.

Kerry may become president - it's possible - but history will not be kind to him, or those around him, should that happen.

Another thing about Kerry that scares me is his wanting to get that book "Unfit for Command" by John O'Neal off thier shelves. and his people asking the publishers not to publish it.

Sounds like censership to me.

WHY JOHN KERRY IS DANGEROUS FOR AMERICA

by Mia T, 5.15.04

 
(viewing movie requires Flash Player 7, available HERE)

johnkerryisdangerousforamerica.blogspot.com

 

As long as you've got a rich man on your arm, you don't need a big bag.

--Elizabeth Rickard

 

The $100 billion Iraqi Oil for Food program was by far the largest relief operation in the history of the United Nations. By extension, it's rapidly becoming the U.N.'s largest-ever scandal....

Those included rewarding friends and allies world-wide with oil allocations on very favorable terms, as well as extracting large kickbacks from oil traders and suppliers of humanitarian goods....

There can be little doubt that U.N. mismanagement contributed greatly to the negative perception of the anti-Saddam containment policy. There is also little doubt that the reward and kickback scheme--as well the possibility of exposure--was a factor as some countries weighed whether to back U.S.-led regime change in Iraq. There is even reason to suspect that some of the Saddam friends and allies who benefited may have been members of the U.N. Secretariat.

Oil for Scandal
The Wall Street Journal Editorial Page
Thursday, March 18, 2004 12:01 a.m.

eave it to the French to make pro-islamofascist-terrorist radical chic all the rage.

They and their moneygrubbing, Oil-for-Food defrauding cohorts abroad, and their power-hungry would-be terrorist sympathizers here, are all sporting "THE LOOK."

(How many of those oh so trendy Kerry-clinton-Kennedy hate-America, blame-America-first sound bites will Al-Jazeera broadcast today?)

The trusty triad's half-truths, exaggerations and outright lies, confounded by fog of war, vagaries of peace and uncharted territory of asymmetric netherworlds, remind us that things are not always what they first seem. The UN Oil-for-Food scandal, for example, has shown us it was not "going to war with Iraq" that was "all about oil," but rather, "not going to war with Iraq." The Left, we now see, had that one,
(as they have most things), exactly backward.

The dernier cri of seditious and corrupt Leftists everywhere, pro-islamofascist-terrorist radical chic renders the Left, irrespective of policy, no less dangerous to Western civilization than the terrorists they seek to aid and abet.

There was another FR thread in which freeper ApesforEvolution posted a VERY great joke!!

I'll try to come as close as I can to posting it here:


At a very large Catholic church in Boston,the Cardinal is approached by the Kerry campaign moments before the start of Sunday mass, with a "request".

The Kerry representative asks the Cardinal:"Sen.Kerry will be attending your service today, along with a substantial ammount of media people. If you could say from your pulpit durring your sermon that:"John Kerry is a Saint", we will
donate $100,000 to your church."

The Cardinal replies:"I will fulfill your request durring todays mass.", upon which the Kerry rep fulfills his "part"
of the "deal".

The large church is totally packed, with Kerry seated in the
front row pew, eagerly anticipating the Cardinals' "announcement", which will FINALLY put the Catholic "seal of approval" on his otherwise questionable
"faith".

The Cardinal starts his sermon.

"We have a special person in our house of worship today. I would like to welcome Mass Sen.John Kerry. In his 19 years in the Senate, he has voted for and supported "Roe vs. Wade", which ends the lifes of millions of unborn every year, which is completely against what the Church believes.

Sen Kerry also supports "partial birth abortion" which contradicts Church law.

Sen, Kerry has also has backed underage teenage birth control and abortion without parental consent, has STRONGLY come out in support of Gay marriage, which contradicts the teachings of the Church.

He has voted against our troops in Iraq, voted for almost
every tax increase that daily puts more of a strain on our hard working families.


After only 4 1/2 months of what was supposed to be at least a 12 month "tour of duty" in Viet Nam, Sen Kerry, along with Jane Fonda and a few others,has almost single handedly been
given the mantle of credit for creating the anti-war hatred and slandering of the US troops in VN, which resulted in the
treasonable act of supporting our enemy durring a time of war, and to this day, making every soldier who has ever put on a uniform for our great country, and especially those who served so faithfully in VN, feel like a criminal in their own country to this very day because of the lies he told in 1971 in front of a Senate committee, of the DAILY attrocities committed by our brave fighting service men and women.

......But compared to Sen. Ted Kennedy, John Kerry is a Saint !!"

"Remember - we are talking about the same electorate that elected Clinton TWICE...."

No, we're not. The 2004 electorate is vastly different from the 1992 and 1996 electorate. For one, the Republicans in 2004 have fielded a candidate the public cares about--I maintain that the Democrats did not win in 1992 and 1996, but rather the Republican candidates lost. How else do you explain not just Republicans, but conservatives, taking over the House in 1994? In both 1992 and 1996, Clinton never got over 50% of the popular vote--a further sign of voter apathy towards these candidates. Even the liberal media ran stories in 1996 about how boring the race was. Further reaffirmation of the public's apathy towards Clinton: "My Life" and "Living History" sales never reached what they were projected to, and in fact are being discounted at huge rates, yet still aren't selling. Meanwhile, conservative books are tearing up the charts.

This election is Bush's to lose, and he is not losing. I don't care if the latest ABCBSNBCNNMSNBC poll says otherwise.

BIG Question: Has anyone ever been ousted from office during a period of no declared war under the quoted provision of the 14th Amendment, or a law that was directly derived from it, without having actually committed espionage?

Better yet, has did Kerry during his glorious VVAW days commit an ACTUAL ACT of espionage (troop movements, ship or personnel locations, sabotage of documents, etc.) that has been covered up?

Prove this and only the braid-dead will get his vote.

This doesn't wash...the Cold War definitely defined "enemies of the United States" even when we weren't necessarily "at War" with them. Folks got busted fer slipping info to the Commies in Russis, I reckon folks also oughtta git busted fer providing aid and comfort to North Viet Nam!!

Interest sidebar II: Why wouldn't an effort to expel him from the Senate once he's defeated for President be successful?

You got to be kidding, "Arlen Spector" will be chairing the Senate Judiciary Committee.

"Then why is John Kerry even a senator?"

"Because the NVA and VC were never made "enemies of the United States" by a Constitutional process."


What exactly are you referring to when you say "... a constitutional process" ?

It seems that any US citizen could file suit in his district federal court to have John Kerry tossed out of the Senate on the basis of 14th amendment.

Am I right folks?

The laws of treason are very dangerous. They were abused in England for hundreds of years, primarily because the definition of "enemy" was so elastic.

I contend that the way the People of the United States create an "enemy", in the Constitutional sense, is for Our representatives in Congress assembled to declare war on that enemy.

I suppose I would agree that the issuance of Letters of Marque and Reprisal have the same effect.

Neither of those scenarios apply to the NVA.

The problem with the more elastic definition is that enemies and friends can change with the stroke of an executive pen. To be guilty of treason, or to be barred from office in the way you suggest, there must be a bright line you cross, and that line must be drawn by the People, acting through Congress.
