Petition to Investigate and Indict John F. Kerry for acts of treason
Over 180,000 people have already signed this petition!! Please add your name, and then FORWARD IT TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW!!
The appeal notes both Kerry's violations of the UCMJ (Article 104 part 904) and U.S. Code (18 USC Sec. 2381 and 18 USC Sec. 953), and calls for his disqualification for public office in accordance with the Constitution's Fourteenth Amendment, Section 3, which states: "No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President ... having previously taken an oath ... to support the Constitution of the United States, [who has] engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof."

It's no surprise that John Kerry has devoted so much time and energy questioning George W. Bush's record as commander-in-chief. Nor is it any surprise that he recently launched a campaign calling on Secretary of Defense Don Rumsfeld to resign after a handful of military personnel humiliated al-Qa'ida terrorists in Abu Ghraib prison while attempting to obtain actionable intelligence about their plans to kill more of our troops.
These political attacks are just the latest round on Kerry's long list of black-bag antics designed to undermine America's military strength and resolve.
Kerry, who fancies himself a war hero, has spent much of his political career denigrating American military personnel and the nation they defend. But his anti-American actions preceded his first campaign for Congress -- indeed, they were the platform from which he launched his political career.
Like his comrade "Hanoi Jane" Fonda and so many other Leftist protagonists from the Age of Aquarius, Kerry was a child of wealth and privilege. Today, he is the wealthiest member of Congress (the "F" stands for "Forbes," after all) but don't expect that to be a central theme of his "man of the people" campaign. (In fact, the top five wealthiest Senators are all Democrats.)
Kerry grew up hobnobbing with the Massachusetts Cape glitterati, a life of leisure including all the accoutrements -- the best schools, the best vacation homes, the best yachts, etc. He socialized with the rich and famous, especially the Kennedy clan elites, where he was taken under the wing of his future patron saint, Teddy. He attempted to emulate John Kennedy's PT-109 heroics by joining the Navy and using his connections to obtain an assignment for a short tour on a swiftboat in Vietnam. Kerry then went on to collect three Purple Hearts in just two months -- all of dubious merit, but requisite for a ticket home to pursue his political aspirations.
Unlike John F. Kennedy, however, when John F. Kerry got home, there was no hero's welcome. The nation was in turmoil over our continued role in Vietnam, the result of limited but well-publicized Leftist protests against the war. So Kerry, ever the opportunist, endeavored to become the Left's most "useful idiot" (as Lenin called Western apologists for Soviet propaganda), collaborating with Fonda, et al., and leading protests accusing his "brethren" in Vietnam of all manner of atrocities.
Kerry was (and remains) an effective spokesperson for his Leftist cadre. His anti-war protest period culminated with his 1971 congressional testimony, after which he told the press, "There are all kinds of atrocities and I would have to say that, yes, yes, I committed the same kind of atrocities as thousands of other soldiers have committed in that I took part in shootings in free-fire zones. I conducted harassment and interdiction fire. I used 50-caliber machine guns, which we were granted and ordered to use, which were our only weapon against people. I took part in search-and-destroy missions, in the burning of villages. All of this is contrary to the laws of warfare. All of this is contrary to the Geneva Conventions...."
Regarding the substance -- and source -- of Kerry's claims, Ion Mihai Pacepa, the highest-ranking intelligence officer ever to defect from the Soviet bloc, says "KGB priority number one at that time was to damage American power, judgment, and credibility. ... As a spy chief and a general in the former Soviet satellite of Romania, I produced the very same vitriol Kerry repeated to the U.S. Congress almost word for word and planted it in leftist movements. KGB chairman Yuri Andropov managed our anti-Vietnam War operation. He often bragged about having damaged the U.S. foreign-policy consensus, poisoned domestic debate in the U.S., and built a credibility gap between America and European public opinion through our disinformation operations. Vietnam was, he once told me, 'our most significant success'."
As for the success of Kerry's anti-democracy protests and his leadership of the VVAW and association with Fonda's Winter Soldier Investigation, General Vo Nguyen Giap, Vietnam's most decorated military leader, wrote in retrospect that if not for the disunity created by such stateside protesters, Hanoi would have ultimately surrendered.
But the consequences of Kerry's actions should not stop with the fall of Saigon.
Kerry, by his own account, violated the UCMJ, the Geneva Conventions and the U.S. Code while serving as a Navy officer, and he further stands in violation of Article three, Section three of the U.S. Constitution.
Upon entering the Navy in 1966, John Kerry signed a six-year contract (plus a six-month extension during wartime) and an Officer Candidate contract for five years of active duty and active Naval Reserve. This indicates that Kerry was clearly a commissioned officer at the time of his 1970 meeting with NVA Communists in Paris -- in direct violation of the UCMJ's Article 104 part 904, and U.S. Code 18 U.S.C. 953. That meeting, and Kerry's subsequent coddling of Communists while leading mass protests against our military in the year that followed, also place him in direct violation of our Constitution's Article three, Section three, which defines treason as "giving aid and comfort" to the enemy in time of warfare. (As General Vo Nguyen Giap is his witness....)
Thus, we refer our readers to the Constitution's Fourteenth Amendment, Section 3, which states, "No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President ... having previously taken an oath ... to support the Constitution of the United States, [who has] engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof."
It is for this reason -- for his record of giving aid and comfort to the enemy while a member of the U.S. Armed Forces in violation of his oath -- that We, the People, insist John Kerry resign his seat in the U.S. Senate. He has dishonored his family, dishonored his state and dishonored our nation. He is not fit for public office at any level of government, much less, the highest office in the land. John Kerry must resign.
NOTICE: This petition for indictment was delivered to Senate President Richard Cheney, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist and Attorney General John Ashcroft on Monday, 18 October 2004. We are currently awaiting a reply from the Department of Justice. Click here to read the full text of the letter.
Sign This Petition.
Good luck, godspeed, and knock yourself out.
Yawn. So many kooks, so little time.
I was thinking the same, but if FnKerry IS elected, it might help for afterward.
God Help Us All.
Not enough room in prison for 42% of the population
Try to get back to reality...cause this is never going to happen. I don't like Kerry or what he did or has done since VN, but this is overkill.
I dont want President Edwards either, people. Do you?
It could help us if he LOSES too, to get a buch of election lawsuits dropped!
I read something about this on FR today, but didn't follow up on it.
I just heard on Fox News that there are lawsuits already in Ohio and Florida. I am just shaking my head.
And just who is he talking about when he says "We?" Sure isn't many from THIS forum, that's for sure.
Why? Because we do not want FnKerry leading our troops!
I signed this a long time ago, but what is really happening with it? I hope for the best, but what is becoming of it?
Lets hang him.
Overkill? Since when is holding a Traitor accountable overkill? The overkill is the psychological and physical damage that has been done to a whole generation of American Patriots and hero's, both dead and alive!
The damage that has been done to American Foreign Policy! They are using the same Tactics now as they did on us during Vietnam and after Vietnam. No Positive news from the MSM, ALL Negative or no news at all. The young Danny Rather's who were reporter's in Vietnam are now in charge of the news media and what is put on OUR airways. We should also file a suit for violation of their agreement with us to provide the public with honest information instead of their propaganda !
I agree with you. If (God forbid) Kerry wins, he'll sink the ship. Good news is, that will sink the Dems for a long time... but this petition nonesense makes us look silly. It's hard enough supporting Bush with all these brainwashed hippies throwing their jargon at me, but I don't need them to bring this up at the water cooler too.
I have no idea. You know, this is the first I have heard of it.
It might be too late before the election, but might come in handy AFTER the election.
But I have no idea where this petition is or where it is heading.
You are letting your emotions be your guide. Bad policy.
After being pent up for over thirty years I guess there is alot of people releasing these emotions on Kerry, both in the Voting Booth and in the petition.
Kerry is clearly a traitor. If Kerry isn't a traitor then the word ought be stricken from the dictionaries because it applies to no one.
It is not nonsense for Americans to insist that the Constitution not be ignored.
You sound like you have difficulty with your conservatism if hippies throwing jargon at you makes it hard for you to support Bush.
"Yawn. So many kooks, so little time."
I'm not sure what you mean by that....are you refering to the poster? At least the poster is attempting to do SOMETHING. This petition had over 160,000 signatures on it when I signed weeks ago. It CAN'T hurt. Silence is consent.
Remember, if Kerry loses, he's still in the Senate. He needs to be gone from there, too!
You may be bumping up against the constitution. If Kerry was already court-martialed for treason, double jeopardy may apply. I'm not a legal person and am not sure if military courts are recognized by civilian courts in this type of situation.
In either case if Kerry received a pardon from a president it cannot be reversed.
"You're letting your emotions be your guide. Bad policy."
Try selling that cute little line to the POW's from Vietnam, whose bodies don't work quite the way God intended them to, because of a few extra years of torture courtesy of john kerry.....American traitor.
All Vietnam Vets were given amnesty by Newly elected President Jimmy (smells more every day)Carter. However it would take a pardon AFTER conviction, to excuse warcrimes or false testimony to the Congress. I don't know that Bush would give it?
