WASH TIMES 2/11 Rep. Sam Johnson, Texas Republican, who spent nearly seven years in a prisoner-of-war camp in Vietnam, said yesterday the photograph of Mr. Kerry with Miss Fonda will hurt him nevertheless. "I think it symbolizes how two-faced he is, talking about his war reputation, which is questionable on the one hand, and then coming out against our veterans who were fighting over there on the other," Mr. Johnson said. Mr. Johnson recalled that his North Vietnamese captors played recordings of Miss Fonda telling U.S. troops to give up the war. "Seeing this picture of Kerry with her at antiwar demonstrations in the United States just makes me want to throw up."

This is the one I find the most explosive...

From this thread:

For example, the fabled and distinguished chief of naval operations (CNO), Admiral Elmo Zumwalt, told me -- 30 years ago when he was still CNO -- that during his own command of US naval forces in Vietnam, just prior to his anointment as CNO, young Kerry had created great problems for him and the other top brass, by killing so many non-combatant civilians and going after other non-military targets.

"We had virtually to straight-jacket him to keep him under control," the admiral said. "Bud" Zumwalt got it right when he assessed Kerry as having large ambitions -- but promised that his career in Vietnam would haunt him if he were ever on the national stage.

By killing so many non-combatant civilians... amazing. Next time he starts in on Vietnam, I want somebody to ask him how many innocents he fragged. Clearly it was enough that even the brass were concerned about his actions.

Re my last post, I think this was the CIA report I had in mind:

There's some stuff on the Christic Institute in Appendix E. Also see Appendix D on "Potential Disinformation and CIA-Contra Drug Allegations". I think there may be more in the Iran-Contra testimony.

A Copy of His Book with that Disgusting Cover just went for $559.99 on E-Bay. Somebody wanted that book real BAD!

It probably was bought by the John Kerry for President campaign, just to keep it from getting in the "wrong hands."

Heroic John Kerry?
If a decorated firefighter becomes an arsonist, is he still considered a hero?

If a dedicated FBI agent leaves his agency, then attacks it – and becomes a professional witness for the defense - is he still a “hero?”

The answers are obvious to any common sense person.

But, if a Vietnam-era soldier comes home, blasts his country, gives aid and comfort to our enemies, and tosses his war medals over the White House fence – in this unique circumstance – then he’s apparently still a hero in the minds of many, including the mainstream media.


Benedict Arnold was a hero too, until he decided to turn traitor. Should we still consider him a "hero"?

More Kerry Hypocrisy (April 22, 1971 S. 381-18.8 pp.180-210)

I went to the microfilm archives in my law school library today and read through Kerry's entire 1971 testimony of April 22, 1971. It does not appear in full in any electronic database, so most people have yet to read the whole thing. I found a few interesting things that I transcribed by hand. There is much, much more, but I don't have time to type all of it up.

For example, Kerry voted against the bill that would have funded our troops and aided in rebuilding Iraq. However, there is this exchange on page 191 of the testimony:

Senator Aiken. Do you think we are under obligation to furnish [the people of Indochina] with extensive economic assistance?

Mr. Kerry. Yes, Sir. I think we have a very definite obligation to make extensive reparations to the people of Indochina.

Apparently, Kerry also though that the Cold War was over by 1971!

Mr. Kerry. I think we are reacting under cold-war precepts which are no longer applicable. . . . Therefore, I think it is ridiculous to assume we have to play this power game based on total warfare. . . . I would say to this question of world peace. I think it is bogus, totally artificial. There is no threat. The Communists are not about to take over our McDonalds hamburger stands. . . . Senator [Case], I will say this. I think that politically, historically, the one thing that people try to do, that society is structured on as a whole, is an attempt to satisfy their felt needs, and you can satisfy those needs with almost any kind of political structure, giving it one name or the other. In this name it is democratic; in others it is communism; in others it is a benevolent dictatorship. As long as those needs are satisfied, that structure will exist

1999 Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting, The New York Times, Evidence of China Plan to Buy Entree to U.S. Technology.

This article closes the loop following the incomplete Senate hearings on Chinese government contributions to the DNC, Bill Clinton, and John Kerry. Clear linkage of Kerry's campaign contributor, (PRC) Colonel Liu Chaoying, to money from the Chinese government.

Making America Secure Again [Kerry Speech to Council of Foreign Relations - Full Text]
Council on Foreign Relations ^ | December 3, 2003 | John F. Kerry

Note how he is undermining Bush's foreign policy -- which other countries pick up and it's detrimental to our foreign policy.

"Simply put, the Bush administration has pursued the most arrogant, inept, reckless and ideological foreign policy in modern history. In the wake of the September 11th terrorist attacks, the world rallied to the common cause of fighting terrorism. But President Bush has squandered that historic moment. The coalition is now in tatters, and the global war on terrorism has actually been set back. The president had the opportunity to unite the international community and hold Saddam Hussein accountable and, in doing so, to perhaps have avoided war altogether. But he refused to take the time or to expend the true effort of diplomacy. He went to war in a rush, and he rushed into war almost alone. Now the United Nations is divided, years of work is torn apart, and we are fighting an increasingly deadly guerrilla war in Iraq almost single-handedly. We have lost the goodwill of the world, and over-extended our troops, and endangered rather than enhanced our own security.

I will treat the United Nations as a full partner -- not as an obstruction to get by -- not only in the war on terror, but in combating other common enemies, like AIDS and global poverty. We must seek not only to renew the mandate of the U.N., but to reform its operations and revitalize its capacity. And if I am president, the United Nations will be seen as the asset that it is, not a liability to a safer America.

As president, I will be prepared early on to explore areas of mutual interest with Iran, just as I was prepared to normalize relations with Vietnam a decade ago."

He deserves to be tried for treason, he is undermining the US during war time, during critical times.

Did firm reward Kerry for legislative help?

Insurer donated after Kerry kept loophole open


FR Posted on 02/05/2004 4:31:54 AM PST by Liz

WASHINGTON -- A Senate colleague was trying to close a loophole that allowed a major insurer to divert millions of federal dollars from the nation's most expensive construction project. John Kerry stepped in and blocked the legislation.

Over the next two years, the insurer, American International Group, paid Kerry's way on a trip to Vermont and donated at least $30,000 to a tax-exempt group Kerry used to set up his presidential campaign. Company executives donated $18,000 to his Senate and presidential campaigns.

Were the two connected? Kerry says no.

But to some government watchdogs, the tale of the Massachusetts senator's 2000 intervention, detailed in documents obtained by the Associated Press, is a textbook case of the special-interest politicking that Kerry rails against on the presidential campaign trail.

"The idea that Kerry has not helped or benefited from a specific special interest, which he has said, is utterly absurd," said Charles Lewis, head of the Center for Public Integrity, which just published a book on political donations to the presidential candidates.

"Anyone who gets millions of dollars over time, and thousands of dollars from specific donors, knows there's a symbiotic relationship. He needs the donors' money. The donors need favors. Welcome to Washington. That is how it works."

The documents obtained by the AP provide a window on Kerry's involvement in a two-decade-old highway and tunnel construction project in his home state of Massachusetts. Known as the "Big Dig," it had become infamous for its multibillion-dollar cost overruns.

Kerry's office confirmed yesterday that as a member of the Senate Commerce Committee, he persuaded committee Chairman John McCain (R-Ariz.) to drop a provision that would have stripped $150 million from the project and ended the insurance funding loophole.

The Massachusetts Democrat actually was angered by the loophole but didn't want money stripped from the project because it would hurt his constituents who needed the Boston project finished, spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter said.

Instead of McCain's bluntly worded legislation, Kerry asked for a committee hearing in May 2000. Kerry thanked McCain at the start of the hearing for dropping his legislation and an AIG executive was permitted to testify that he believed the company's work for the Big Dig was a good thing even though it was criticized by federal auditors.

Asked why Kerry would subsequently accept a trip and money from AIG in 2001 and 2002 if he was angered by the investment scheme, Cutter replied: "Any contributions AIG made to the senator's campaign came years after the investigation. Throughout his career, John Kerry has stood up to special interests on behalf of average Americans. This case is no different."

The New York-based insurer, one of the world's largest, declined to comment on its donations to Kerry, simply stating: "AIG never requested any assistance from Sen. Kerry concerning the insurance we provided the Big Dig."

The project has become a symbol of government contracting gone awry, known for cost overruns that now total several billion dollars, and its admissions of mismanagement.

During the 1990s, Sens. Kerry and Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) helped win new federal funding for the project as its costs skyrocketed and threatened to burden the state's government. In 1998, Kerry was credited with winning $100 million in new federal funding.

But in 1999, the Transportation Department uncovered a financing scheme in which the project had overpaid $129.8 million to AIG for worker compensation and liability insurance that wasn't needed, then had allowed the insurer to keep the money in a trust and invest it in the market. The government alleged AIG kept about half of the profits it made from the investments, providing the other half to the project.

Outraged by the revelations, McCain submitted legislation that would have stripped $150 million from the Big Dig and banned the practice of allowing an insurer to invest and profit from excessive premiums paid with government money.

"Any refunds of insurance premiums or reserve amounts, including interest, that exceed a project's liabilities shall be immediately returned to the federal government," McCain's legislation declared.

But Kerry and Kennedy intervened, and McCain withdrew the legislation in 2000 in favor of the hearing.

In September 2001, Kerry disclosed to the Senate ethics office that AIG had paid an estimated $540 in travel expenses to cover his costs for a speech in Burlington, Vt.

A few months later, in December 2001, several AIG executives gave maximum $1,000 donations to Kerry's Senate campaign on the same day. The donations totaled $9,700 and were followed by several thousand dollars more over the next two years.

The next spring, AIG donated $10,000 to a new tax-exempt group Kerry formed, the Citizen Soldier Fund, to lay groundwork for his presidential campaign. Later in 2002, AIG gave two more donations of $10,000 each to the same group, making it one of the largest corporate donors to Kerry's group.

The insurer wasn't the only company connected to the Big Dig to donate to Kerry's new group. Two construction companies on the project -- Modern Continental Group and Jay Cashman Construction -- each donated $25,000, IRS records show.

Rep. James McGovern (D- Mass.), a Boston area lawmaker, credited Kerry for getting McCain's legislation blocked in favor of a hearing, saying Massachusetts lawmakers "were on the side of good government here but also concerned the language might go too far and put more of a burden on a Massachusetts project."

Oops, Jane forget to defend how Kerry earned his Purple Heart.

Seems Jane gave Kerry a hickey and that was considered bravery while engaged in enemy action.
