EXPLOITING MAX CLELAND

by Mia T, 8.29.04

 

ax Cleland is remarkable. What a pity he allowed delusory left-wing flights of fancy and lust for power rob him of his nobility.

The irony and the tragedy of Max Cleland overwhelms.

Remarkably, Cleland did not become an embittered man when John Kerry's self-inflicted, bacitracin+bandaid-treated, tickets-out-of-Vietnam scratches were deemed worthy of three purple hearts while his three missing limbs were deemed worthy of none; this, even after insult was added to injury and he was dispatched to Texas to lend his phantom limbs to Kerry's self-serving cause.

Cleland became embittered, rather, because he actually began to believe the principal neo-neoliberal premise--the neo-neoliberal premise that undergirds all other neo-neoliberal premises--which is, that he was entitled to his Senate seat not because of his abilities but because of his disabilities, not because of his policies but because of our pity...or even our shame.

Cleland lost the election because he supported his party's union quid-pro-quo policy at the expense of America's national security. That his patriotism was challenged is a leftist canard. What was challenged was his judgment and ability to protect the people of Georgia and America against the post-9/11 realities.

If Max Cleland lost nobility last week, John Kerry lost any semblance of decency. Harnessing and fomenting Max Cleland's denial and bitterness, Kerry sought finally to bring to fruition his cynical 1971 scheme that would shamelessly exploit a crippled vet for his own self-aggrandizing purposes.

Today, with the following throwaway line, Brit Hume, Kerry's childhood pal, perhaps not so unwittingly revealed the core of Kerry's unfitness--the constancy over time of John Kerry's overweening opportunism.

Delivering the Kerry coup de grâce with the uptown refinement and politesse we've come to expect from him, Hume slyly observed: "John Kerry gave his 1971 testimony with a [Kennedy-esque] accent I didn't hear when I knew him as a little boy and an accent I haven't heard since."

I'd be curious to actually KNOW what his heroics were involved with his particular war incidents.

* Awarded Bronze Star and Silver Star

"Cleland volunteered as communications officer for 2d Battalion, 12th Cavalry, which had been chosen for Operation Pegasus the relief of Khe Sanh in April 1968. CPT Cleland was on a mountaintop with his Signal team to set up a radio relay when he lost his legs and right arm to a grenade explosion. For Khe Sanh he received the Bronze Star for meritorious service and Silver Star for gallantry in action."

The awards of star medals appear unrelated to the grenade explosion accident which caused hs injuries. The Silver Star Medal Citation references action on 4 April. The grenade explosion was on 8 April.

Silver Star Medal Citation

Captain Cleland distinguished himself by exceptionally valorous action on 4 April 1968 during an enemy attack near Khe Sanh.

When the battalion command post came under a heavy enemy rocket and mortar attack, Captain Cleland, disregarding his own safety, exposed himself to the rocket barrage as he left his covered position to administer first aid to his wounded comrades. He then assisted in moving the injured personnel to covered positions.

Continuing to expose himself, Captain Cleland organized his men into a work party to repair the battalion communications equipment, which had been damaged by enemy fire.

His gallant action is in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service, and reflects great credit upon himself, his unit and the United States Army.

Grenade Explosion Accident. In his own words,

On April 8, 1968, I volunteered for one last mission. The helicopter moved in low. The troops jumped out with M16 rifles in hand as we crouched low to the ground to avoid the helicopter blades. Then I saw the grenade. It was where the chopper had lifted off. It must be mine, I thought. Grenades had fallen off my web gear before. Shifting the M16 to my left hand and holding it behind me, I bent down to pick up the grenade. A blinding explosion threw me backwards.

The irony and the tragedy of Max Cleland overwhelms.

Remarkably, Cleland did not become an embittered man when John Kerry's self-inflicted, bacitracin + bandaid-treated, tickets-out-of-Vietnam-and-onto-the-JFK-career-path scratches were deemed worthy of three purple hearts while his three missing limbs were deemed worthy of none; this, even after insult was added to injury when he was dispatched to Texas to lend his phantom limbs to Kerry's self-serving cause.

Cleland became embittered, rather, because he actually began to believe the principal neo-neoliberal premise--the neo-neoliberal premise that undergirds all other neo-neoliberal premises--which is, that he was entitled to his Senate seat not because of his abilities but because of his disabilities, not because of his policies but because of our pity...or even our shame.

Cleland lost the election because he supported his party's union quid-pro-quo policy at the expense of America's national security. That his patriotism was challenged is a leftist canard. What was challenged was his judgment and ability to protect the people of Georgia and America against the post-9/11 realities. (NOTE: I would add this caveat: Cleland and the Left conflating the two charges, (i.e., equating lack of judgment with lack of patriotism), suggests their own guilty knowledge of same.)

If Max Cleland lost nobility last week, John Kerry lost any semblance of decency. Harnessing and fomenting Max Cleland's denial and bitterness, Kerry sought finally to bring to fruition his cynical 1971 scheme that would shamelessly exploit a crippled vet for his own self-aggrandizing purposes.

Today, with the following throwaway line, Brit Hume, Kerry's childhood pal, perhaps not so unwittingly revealed the core of Kerry's unfitness--the constancy over time of John Kerry's overweening opportunism.

However he lost his limbs, it was while doing his duty and unlike John Kerry he has never lied about what happened to him.

You're correct that he has never lied about what happened to him.

On the other hand, he has allowed others, speaking in his presence, to misrepresent his accident as 'leaving three limbs on the battlefield'.

<< .... he has never lied about what happened to him. >>

First consider that he was injured -- after turning away from an ordered rest and setting out to join others for a drinking session -- as the consequence of bending down to pick up a live grenade that, having left its pin behind, had just dropped off a belt.

Then that, for decades, he has lied by the age-old errors of omission and of having others lie for him.

More recently he has allowed his approaching-terminal-stage alcoholism to take ever-increasing control of his actions, activities, grandiose sense of entitlement and ever-less-under-control mouth and has grieviously slandered and libelled his political oponents by lying about the nature of their critisisms of his policy postions and stands and by misrepresenting those challenges as personal attacks upon his "patriotism.

Yair -- come to think of it -- on the evidence he's "lied about what happened to him."

But only for around thirty five years that I know of.

"The Bush administration is so enthralled by the idea of preemption and American military might….This is the consequence of a policy that regards legitimacy as largely a product of force and victory as primarily a triumph of arms."

John Kerry
COUNCIL FOR FOREIGN RELATIONS

3 December 2003





"I listened to what Senator Kerry had to say in Boston, and, with all due respect to the Senator, he views the world as if we had never been attacked on September 11th. The job of the Commander-in-Chief, as he sees it, is to use America's military strength to respond to attacks. But September 11th showed us, as surely as anything can, that we must act against gathering dangers - not wait for to be attacked. That awful day left some 3,000 of our fellow citizens dead, and everything we have learned since tells us the terrorists would do worse if they could, and that they will even use chemical, biological, or nuclear weapons against us if they can. In the world we live in now, responding to attacks is not enough. We must do everything in our power to prevent attacks -- and that includes using military force."

Dick Cheney
VP's Remarks in Dayton, Ohio
Dayton Convention Center
August 12, 2004





"While I don't agree with Bush on a single domestic issue, they are all trumped by the issue of terrorism, where he has enunciated the Bush Doctrine and proven his ability to fight this war.

The Democratic Party just doesn't have the stomach to go after terrorists."

The Left's Fatally Flawed "Animal Farm" Mentality
(Why America Must NEVER AGAIN Elect a Democrat President)


WHY JOHN KERRY IS DANGEROUS FOR AMERICA

by Mia T, 6.04.04

 

(viewing movie requires Flash Player 7, available HERE)

johnkerryisdangerousforamerica.blogspot.com

The Bush Doctine is built on two pillars, one -- that the United States must maintain its absolute military superiority in every part of the world, and second -- that the United States has the right for preemptive action.

Now, both these propositions, taken on their own, are quite valid propositions, but if you put them together, they establish two kinds of sovereignty in the world, the sovereignty of the United States, which is inviolate, not subject to any international constraints, and the rest of the world, which is subject to the Bush Doctrine.

To me, it is reminiscent to [sic] George Orwell's "Animal Farm," that "All animals are created equal, but some animals are more equal than others."

George Soros

eorge Soros could not have more clearly enunciated the lethal danger that he and John Kerry and the clintons and the rest of his leftist cabal pose for America.

Yesterday, at the "progressive," i.e., ultra-extremist left-wing liberal, "Take Back America" confab, Mr. Soros confirmed the obvious: 9/11 was dispositive for the Dems; that is, 9/11 accelerated what eight years of the clintons had set into motion, namely, the demise of a Democratic party that is increasingly irrelevant, unflinchingly corrupt, unwaveringly self-serving, chronically moribund and above all, lethally, seditiously dangerous.

"All animals are created equal, but some animals are more equal than others."

Apparently missing the irony, George Soros chastised America with these words even as he was trying his $25,000,000, 527-end-run damnedest to render himself "more equal than others" in order to foist his radical, paranoic, deadly dementia on an entire nation.

"Animal Farm" is George Orwell's satirical allegory of the Russian Revolution; but it could just as easily be the story of the Democratic Party of today, with the

Kennedy-Pelosi-Gore-clinton (either--"one for the price of two," I say) -Sulzberger-Soros-Moore construct

its porcine manifestation.

GEORGE TSURIS

Soros' little speech reveals everything we need to know about the Left, to wit:

  • its naivete about the War on Terror,
  • its preference for demagoguery over rational argument, and ideology and reacquisition of power over national security,
  • its mindset, which is inextricably bound to its failed, tortuous, reckless schemes, relics of a different time, a different war and a different enemy.

Soros is correct when he states that each of the two pillars of the Bush Doctine--the United States maintenance of absolute military superiority and the United States right of preemptive action--are "valid propositions" [in a post-9/11 world].

But when he proceeds from there to argue that the validity of each of these two [essential] pillars is somehow nullified by the resultant unequalled power that these two pillars, when taken together, vest in the United States, rational thought and national-security primacy give way to dogmatic Leftist neo-neoliberal ideology.

 

What is, in fact, "inviolate" here is the neo-neoliberal doctrine of U.S. sovereignty, which states simply that there must be none, that we must yield our sovereignty to the United Nations. Because this Leftist tenet is inviolate, and because it is the antithesis of the concept of U.S. sovereignty enunciated by the Bush Doctrine and the concept of U.S. sovereignty required by the War on Terror, rabid Leftists like Soros conclude that we must trash the latter two inconvenient concepts--even if critical to the survival of our country.

It is precisely here where Soros and the Left fail utterly to understand the War on Terror. They cannot see beyond their own ideology and lust for power. They have become a danger to this country no less lethal than the terrorists they aid and abet.

 

I think this administration has the right strategic vision and has taken many of the steps needed to get that long-term strategy rolling.

Where I give them the failing grade is in explaining that vision to the American public and the world. Key example: this White House enshrines preemptive war in the latest National Security Strategy and that scares the hell out of a lot of Americans, not to mention our allies. Why? This administration fails to distinguish sufficiently under what conditions that strategy makes reasonable sense.

My point is this: when you are explicit about the world being divided into globalization's Core and Gap, you can distinguish between the different security rule sets at work in each.

Nothing has changed about strategic deterrence or the concept of mutual-assured destruction (or MAD) within the Core, so fears about preemptive wars triggering World War III are misplaced.

When this administration talks about preemption, they're talking strictly about the Gap - not the Core. The strategic stability that defines the Core is not altered one whit by this new strategy, because preemption is all about striking first against actors or states you believe - quite reasonably - are undeterrable in the normal sense.

I'm a single-issue voter, as I guess must have become apparent.

I'm not a Republican. I'm not a conservative. I'm not a very great admirer of the president in many ways, but I think that my condition is... that this is an administration that wakes up every morning wondering how to make life hard for the forces of Jihad and how to make as hard as possible an unapologetic defense of civilization against this kind of barbarism... and though the Bush administration has been rife with disappointment on this and incompetent, I nonetheless feel that they have some sense of that spirit.

I don't get that... I don't get that feeling from anyone who even sought the Democratic nomination.

I would [therefore] have to vote for the reelection of President Bush.
