    'Swift Boat' Money Man Has New Target AP BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (Sept. 19) - A group behind automated phone calls attacking Democratic congressional candidate Baron Hill is being funded by the Republican donor who helped bankroll the Swift Boat attack ads on Democratic Sen. John Kerry's war record. Indiana is investigating phone calls targeting a congressional candidate. Bob J. Perry, a Texas homebuilder with close ties to White House adviser Karl Rove and former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, recently donated $5 million to the Economic Freedom Fund, a newly created California group targeting Democratic candidates.(snip)

    -"The war in Iraq is the wrong war. No matter how many times the president wants to say it, the war in Iraq is not the war on terror. The war in Afghanistan was." House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) made that comment Wednesday in a speech on the House floor. She was blasting a Republican resolution marking the fifth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Pelosi says Republicans have introduced a partisan and "congratulatory" resolution: "It praises Congress for some reason," Pelosi complained. "Instead of having the focus on the innocent victims of 9/11, it talks about the accomplishments of...
  • Kerry: Bush uses 9/11 as ‘political pawn’

    Sen. John F. Kerry yesterday blasted the Bush administration for war and homeland security policies that he said leave Americans more vulnerable to attack. Kerry’s remarks came in a Faneuil Hall speech on the eve of tomorrow’s five-year anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. In his fourth speech this year at the venue, Kerry accused the administration of using the tragedy that killed about 3,000 Americans to justify the war in Iraq. “It is immoral to treat 9/11 as a political pawn (to) excuse the invasion of Iraq,” Kerry said. “They were attacked and killed not by Saddam...

    by Mark Finkelstein August 11, 2006 - 07:59 Those burly hawks of the Boston Globe are at it again. With a Landis-like testosterone rush, the Globe's editorial this morning, Tarring the majority, rips George H.W. Bush for failing to have taken out Saddam at the conclusion of Operation Desert Storm in 1991. Or as the Globe so sneeringly put it: "The weakling-in-chief who failed to oust Saddam Hussein in 1991 was not a Democrat but the first President George Bush." Yes, we all remember those rousing Globe editorials urging the first war against Iraq. And who can forget the glorious...

    (I got this in my email today from -- tellw) DEAR WILLIAM: To all the Republicans who sit in their air-conditioned offices and talk of the courage it takes for them to keep young kids in harm's way - I say enough. Karl Rove talking about "cutting and running" while he sits on his big, fat backside-saying "stay the course." I say enough! That's not a plan! We've got to have a new direction, and it's clear we need more Democrats in Congress to get that done. No matter how obvious the mistakes in Iraq become, or how many...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- One epitomizes the Washington political establishment as the Democratic Party's most recent presidential nominee. The other is the quintessential Democratic outsider, proud to be the only senator to vote against the USA Patriot Act.Notwithstanding their different histories, Sens. John Kerry and Russ Feingold joined forces last week to push a proposal that would have required troops to leave Iraq by July of next year. And they may soon have something else in common: Both are considering presidential races in 2008."It seems to be a marriage of convenience," said Democratic consultant Dan Payne, a former Kerry Senate campaign...

    While the U.S. Senate debated and rejected Democratic proposals for how and when troops should be pulled out of Iraq, three documentaries on the run-up to the invasion of the oil-rich country were aired on television. The titles of the programs provide us with clues to the motivations, rationales and the processes used to reach the conclusion that Iraq was involved in the attack on the World Trade Center, that it possessed weapons of mass destruction and that it was about to attack the United States again. CNN aired its surprisingly strong documentary "Dead Wrong" during the early part of...

    June 14, 2006 Kerry honors former Nevada senator Hecht at memorial ASSOCIATED PRESS LAS VEGAS (AP) - Friends and family of former Nevada Sen. Chic Hecht gathered in Las Vegas Wednesday for a memorial service honoring the conservative politician best known for his upset victory and his verbal gaffes. Former Democratic presidential candidate U.S. Sen. John Kerry was among those who spoke at the service, praising Hecht's "humble, self-effacing" demeanor and bipartisanship. "Chic was one of the senators - and sadly you see fewer and fewer like him - who understood that you could be friends with a colleague and...

    Kerry has the opportunity to lead a movement once again... by rallying a very angry public to force a change in policy. Richard Nixon worried about Kerry's potential as a leader back in the 70s; maybe the new Kerry will finally prove him right.John Kerry came to national attention not because he was a war hero but because he was a dissenter. In 1971, he appeared on "The Dick Cavett Show," testified before Congress, and electrified anti-war rallies with his message that the war was wrong. His phrase, "How do you ask a man to be the last man to...

    Kerry calls for Rumsfeld's resignation after new 'Bin Laden' tape Washington - US Senator John Kerry on Sunday called on Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld to resign following the airing of a new recording attributed to fugitive al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. Bin Laden slipped past US troops from his hideout in the Tora Bora area of Afghanistan in late 2001 because Rumsfeld had not committed enough troops to finding him, Kerry, the Democratic Party candidate in the 2004 presidential election, told ABC television. The failure to catch the al-Qaeda head on that occasion was one of the biggest catastrophes...

Russ Feingold proposal to censure President Bush. Asked about reports that U.S. contingency plans include using "tactical nuclear devices" in a possible Iran attack, Kerry told NBC's "Meet the Press": "I think that is another example of the move from the hip, shoot from the hip, cowboy diplomacy of this administration . . . For us to think about exploding tactical nuclear...

Regrettably, that has not been the case for a distinguished group of Vietnam combat veterans who stood shoulder to shoulder with us during last year's effort to tell the American people the truth about John Kerry and his anti-war activities. Their situation has become so critical that I felt compelled to inform you of this urgent matter. Several Vietnam POWs and the wife of a POW who joined with us to form Swift Boat Veterans and POWs for Truth has become the target of...

    The DRUDGE REPORT has learned from a top GOP operative that the Republican National Committee will provide state parties with a web video prior to release tomorrow afternoon that shows a white flag waving over images of Democrat leaders making anti-war remarks. The ad is in response to the controversial comments Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean and 2004 Democratic Presidential nominee John Kerry made earlier in the week. A Democratic strategist who had the web ad described to her said, “This is way over the top but we have no one to blame but Dean, Kerry and others who continue...

Four Americans with one thing in common: they betrayed their country for personal gain. In the case of the Rosenbergs, the communist spies and traitors helped their beloved Soviet Union acquire classified intelligence at America’s expense. America’s loss and the Soviet Union’s gain equated to the Rosenberg’s political gain. Robert Garwood, a Marine in the Vietnam War, was captured and then went over to the enemy’s side in exchange for favorable treatment. Clayton Lonetree, also a Marine,...

Bob Schieffer says, "Democrat Senator Joe Lieberman of Connecticut, he takes a very different view, Senator Kerry. He says basically that we should stay the course, because he says real progress is being made. He says, 'This is a war between 27 million Iraqis who want freedom and 10,000 terrorists.' He says we're in a watershed transformation. What about that?" JOHN KERRY: I don't agree with that. But I think what...

We will never forget your faith in our cause and your belief in our honesty. It made all the difference. Together we made history. Like most of you, I believed our mission was over. We could all move on with our lives, return to our families and homes secure in the knowledge we had done the right thing for America, and for our children’s future. Regrettably, that has not been the case for...

    CRAWFORD - President Bush's supporters poured into Crawford by the thousands Saturday, for the first time outnumbering war protesters led by Cindy Sheehan, who began a vigil here three weeks ago, demanding a personal meeting with the vacationing president to talk about her son's death in Iraq. With police security tight and the heat intense, tempers flared, and traffic was clogged. But by late afternoon, only two people had been arrested for what the Secret Service described as a minor "attitude thing." An estimated 3,000 to 4,000 people attended a pro-Bush rally in Crawford, waving flags and pledging allegiance to...

    Winter Soldier is a documentary which one experiences, instead of simply viewing. Over three days in January and February 1971, just a couple months before Lieutenant William Calley would be sentenced to life in prison for the My Lai Massacre (he would eventually serve less than four years), a group of Vietnam War veterans convened at a Howard Johnson in Detroit to testify about the atrocities they had witnessed or partaken in while serving in Vietnam. The conference was titled “The Winter Soldier Investigation,” after Thomas Paine: “These are the times that try men’s souls. The summertime soldier and the...

    Today, June 14, 2005, the date of Marie Cocco's article on "the Kerry smear," is the 38th anniversary of the day my husband, Kevin McManus, of Babylon, Long Island, was shot down over Hanoi and then imprisoned for six years. During those six years, then-Lt. John Kerry, USN, served his near-four-month combat tour in South Vietnam with other Swiftees, nearly all of whom served for at least a year (many for longer than that); and returned to the United States where in early 1970 still-Lt. Kerry (now USNR), having run unsuccessfully for Congress in the Massachusetts Fourth District, decided he'd...
