John Kerry: The Scott Peterson of Politics By Frank Salvato October 28, 2004
There is one thing John Kerry is consistent on: his propensity for manipulating the truth. From Vietnam to the floor of the senate to the halls of the United Nations, Kerry has stretched and exaggerated to create "the truth" and has done so without compunction. His latest "over the top" invention is his "two-hour meeting with the entire UN Security Council." The crafting of this tale should tarnish his image in the eyes of his supporters, if not we should consider their intelligence highly suspect.
Throughout his campaign he has embraced the mantra "Bush lied." Starting with weapons of mass destruction and snowballing to include every talking point on every issue. It matters not what the subject is; healthcare, Bush misled, tax cuts, Bush deceived, the economy, Bush wasn't being honest with the American people. On issue after issue, according to Kerry, Bush lied, lied, and then lied again. The truth be told, Kerry is the one who has the problem with telling the truth.
A lie is defined by the American Heritage Dictionary as a false statement deliberately presented as being true; a falsehood, something meant to deceive or give a wrong impression. The key word in that definition with regard to Kerry's biggest allegation, that President Bush "lied" about WMD in Iraq, is "deliberate." With every intelligence service on the planet believing Saddam Hussein had WMD, including the UN Security Council, anyone who still believes "Bush lied" makes Tommy Chong look like a Nobel Laureate.
250+ Swift Boat Vietnam veterans have once again put themselves in harms way, incurring the scorn of millions of Kerry supporters, in order to bring the truth to light. Compared to the handful of vets claiming Kerry is a hero the shear one-sidedness of the matter should indicate where the truth lies. Compound that with the fact Kerry won't sign his Form 180 to allow the American people the opportunity to see his full military record, the intelligent voter is asking, "What does this guy have to hide?" The only conclusion is Kerry has lied about a great many things regarding his military service including his honors and his discharge.
Kerry himself admitted that the accusations he made during his testimony before Congress in 1971 used words that were "over the top." After calling the majority of 58,000 American fighting men baby-killers and rapists it's safe to say recharacterizing his "words" as "over the top" is quite an understatement. I believe the word 'lies' is appropriate here.
Then we have the present day issue of Kerry saying he "sounded the alarm" on lax security at Boston's Logan Airport prior to September 11th. Retired FAA Security Specialist Brian Sullivan tried for months prior to the attacks to get Kerry's office to do something about the security problem at Kerry's hometown airport. Reports were sent to his office with videotapes but all Kerry did was forward the information to the same agency that was guilty of having the lax security in place. When questioned about this Kerry claimed he "sounded the alarm" and that the Department of Transportation - the agency in question - was conducting an "undercover investigation." Neither statement is true. I should remind you that Logan Airport was one of the embarkation points for the September 11th terrorists. This lie is truly despicable.
Now comes the revelation that Kerry lied about meeting with the entire UN Security Council prior to his vote approving the use of military force in Iraq. Throughout his campaign for president Kerry has repeatedly stated, "I went to meet with the members of the Security Council in the week before we voted." In a speech before the Council on Foreign Relations in 2003 Kerry said he understood the UN's readiness to take serious action because he met "with the entire Security Council, and we spent a couple of hours talking about what they saw as the path to a united front in order to be able to deal with Saddam Hussein." According to several UN Security Council members this meeting never took place. This should be the lie that ends John Kerry's career.
To Kerry's supporters who walk around, anger in hand and eyes wide shut, I say wake up! John Kerry has lied all of his life and is still lying today. He's lying about the security and well being of this nation. If you still choose to support John Kerry after the exposure of all his lies then I beg you not to go to the polls in November. You are either filled with politically created hatred or you are too stupid to vote.
