Kerry Stooge Sues "Stolen Honor" Filmographer (the right has no right to free speech)
Vietnam Veterans Legacy Foundation ^ | 7/14/05 | O'Neill

Posted on 07/14/2005 1:07:43 PM PDT by pabianice

From John O'Neill:

The November election is long past, but I want to tell you about some unfinished and urgent business with which I would like your help.

When my fellow Swift Boat veterans and I made our ads to expose John Kerry’s record with respect to Vietnam during the presidential campaign, we were not alone in our mission. A number of veterans who had spent time in North Vietnam prison camps were eager to tell the American people about how John Kerry’s anti-war activities had affected their treatment.

The two groups of veterans worked together as the Swift Boat Veterans and POWs For Truth. A very important separate effort was “Stolen Honor,” a hard-hitting documentary film made by Carlton Sherwood.

Carlton served in Vietnam as a Marine sniper and won three Purple Hearts for his wounds. He came home to become an award-winning journalist. In “Stolen Honor,” Carlton filmed POWs and their wives talking about how John Kerry’s anti-war activities affected the POWs' treatment.

Carlton also showed some footage of anti-war leftists who worked with John Kerry. Now one of these radicals is suing Carlton for defamation.

I got to know Carlton during the campaign. He put so much of himself into making and distributing “Stolen Honor” that both his health and his finances suffered greatly. But he was so passionate about the cause that he kept on going, and I for one am grateful for the important role that Carlton played in exposing John Kerry’s true role in the anti-war movement...

Spineless US Senate would rather protect Hanoi Kerry
than deal with the anti war crowd.

Anyone who thinks Hanoi Kerry isn't behind the anti war crowd needs to get a clue.

It's time to support our troops and ignore the jelly fish in the US Senate!

There is no need to impeach Hanoi Kerry from the US Senate

He is there illegally!

WAKEUP AMERICA!

For those who "forgot" what Hanoi Kerry
did in the past read on and learn the truth.

Hanoi Kerry was still a USNR officer while he:
gave false hearsay testimony to Congress
negotiated with the enemy
helped the US lose a war
abetted in the deaths of millions
created a hostile environment for all servicemen

Why is Kerry still in the US Senate?
This is in violation of
U.S. Constitution Amendment 14 Sec 3
http://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/constitution.amendmentxiv.html

And the FBI has proof of his treason.

Hanoi Kerry Timeline of a traitor
includes FBI files

May 1970
Kerry and Julia traveled to Paris, France and met with Madame Nguyen Thi Binh, the Foreign Minister of the Provisional Revolutionary Government of Vietnam (PRG), the political wing of the Vietcong, and other Viet Cong and Communist Vietnamese representatives to the Paris peace talks, a trip he now calls a "fact-finding" mission.

(U.S. code 18 U.S.C. 953, declares it illegal for a U.S. citizen to go abroad and negotiate with a foreign power.)

or with any offense punishable by death,
may be tried at any time without limitation.

Folks:

During Kerry's "Unaugural". celebration, I had the pleasure of meeting Carlton Sherwood and his lovely wife at the Press Club in Washington . Carlton is a gentlemen in every sense of the word. Like John O' Neill and a host of other "Patriots", he bravely answered our nation's call for a second time and helped prevent our country from falling under the control of "questionable" leadership.

In doing so, he exposed himself to significant personal and financial risk. He deserves the full backing and support of our citizenry. Please contribute whatever you can to help defend him against Kerry's left-wing stooges.

Respectfully,

Jeffrey M. Epstein, Former Media Relations Director

Vietnam Vets for the Truth

Here is an article on the original lawsuit in the Baltimore Sun -- it's something of a hit piece against Carlton, predictably enough, but the facts are there.

The former VVAW member who filed the suit is Kenneth Campbell, now an associate professor at the University of Delaware.

While truth is a complete defense - even public figures can sue and win libel judgments when there is "actual malice", known falsity and something else (NYTimes vs Sullivan).

Having said that I think you're pretty safe calling Kerry a low-down, lying sack of cow excrement and rely on the truth defense to keep safe from a libel judgment. ;-)

From his own bio:



Kenneth J. Campbell, Ph.D.

Ken Campbell was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Upon graduating from high school in 1967, he enlisted in the Marine Corps and served as an artillery forward observer with a rifle company in Vietnam from February 1968 to March 1969. After his discharge he joined the Vietnam Veterans Against the War. In 1975, he received a B.A. in history from Temple University. In 1985, he received an M.A. in political science, and in 1989 a Ph.D. in political science from Temple University.

Professor Campbell has taught at Temple University, Villanova University, Ursinus College, Washington College, and for the past twelve years at the University of Delaware. He has been recognized for excellence in teaching by Temple University, the University of Delaware, the American Political Science Association, and the Mortar Board National Senior Honor Society. He has published book chapters and articles on war crimes, humanitarian intervention, the Weinberger-Powell Doctrine, and contemporary genocide. His book, Genocide and the Global Village, was published by Palgrave in 2001.

He is currently an associate professor of political science and international relations and director of the International Relations Program at the University of Delaware. His academic areas of specialization are American foreign policy, international security, contemporary genocide, and global governance.

Prof. Campbell is married, has a daughter, and lives in Exton, Pennsylvania, where he listens to Italian opera, reads mystery novels, and tries to play golf.



Imagine! A professor of "American foreign policy, international security, contemporary genocide, and global governance." Speaks for itself. I bet his lectures are revealing!

I wonder if he meets regularly with Ward Churchill?

I'm thinking that, since a good defense is a good offense, that Mr. Sherwood's attorney should find a way to request Mr. Kerry's full form 180 as part of the proceedings.

Mr. Kerry seems quite fearful of producing any info re his original discharge/separation in 1972. (And any revelations of, say, a bad discharge would resonate widely with even folks who don't follow news or politics.)

Carlton Sherwood, you were brave twice. I'll send some support, we all should consider it.

From Campbell's testimony:

My testimony will consist of eyewitnessing and participating in the calling in of artillery on undefended villages, mutilation of bodies, killing of civilians, mistreatment of civilians, mistreatment of prisoners and indiscriminate use of artillery, harassment and interdiction fire.

So he was with Kerry and watched Kerry and his ilk do do all of these things and he also participated. Sounds like they are war criminals to me...

Carlton also showed some footage of anti-war leftists who worked with John Kerry. Now one of these radicals is suing Carlton for defamation.

From the ‘Lectric Law Library:
Although defamation is primarily governed by state law, the First Amendment safeguards for freedom of speech and press limit state law. New York Times v. Sullivan, 376 U.S. 254, 264 (1964); Masson, 501 U.S. at 510. The scope of constitutional protection extends to statements of opinion on matters of public concern that do not contain or imply a provable factual assertion. Milkovich, 497 U.S. at 20 (rejecting categorical exemption of all statements in form of opinion; statement that may imply verifiable assertion of fact is actionable).

The radical leftist anti-American enemy sympathizer won’t win the lawsuit, but he can cost Carlton a bundle in legal fees. I hope the case gets tossed as frivolous.

Campbell wasn't with Kerry in Vietnam. Campbell was in artillery with the Marines; Kerry drove Swift boats for the Navy.

I had mentioned to one barking moonbat here in Minnestupid that John Kerry had violated Article 104 of the UCMJ, aiding the enemy by meeting with the North Vietnamese delegation at the Paris "peace" talks while still holding a naval reserve commission. The response was physically violent, the police response was that my statement of fact provoked the assault. Minnesota, like Sad Freaksicko, is no longer part of the United States.

OK. Here's what we could do.

1. Someone near Newark, NJ, get a copy of the suit (it's public information) and post what Campbell is suing for.

2. Post a summary of the anti-US activities Campbell was involved in, the publication of which he is suing for.

Volunteers?
