  • 4 Things You Need to Know About Secretary of State Nominee John Kerry

    Don't let his reputation as a peacenik fool you. John Kerry is no anti-interventionist.On Dec. 21, President Obama nominated Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) to replace Hillary Clinton as secretary of state. The move was widely expected after Susan Rice, the only other prominent candidate, dropped out of consideration when the Obama administration’s response to a terror attack on the U.S. embassy in Libya promised to derail her nomination.Now serving his fifth term in the Senate, Kerry is best known for his failed 2004 presidential run, and the "swift boat" attacks he suffered during it. While America may never know a...

    Republican Senate candidate Jim Ogonowski took his attacks against Sen. John Kerry's record to a new level yesterday -- television. Ogonowski, one of two Republicans vying to oust Kerry this fall, launched the first TV ad of the campaign season. The one-minute ad will air on cable stations throughout the state for the next three weeks, his campaign said. "People are absolutely fed up with the fact that he has been there so long and passed only eight pieces of legislation (since 1999)," Ogonowski said. "There's some real excitement in this state if you get to talk to people about...

    one vet's opinion | 6/21/06
    It is now 17 months since John Kerry "promised" to sign his Form 180, allowing the Navy to release to the public his Navy record. He lied. Not only has he not signed his 180, he has removed from the web what few, edited records he had released prior to the 2004 presidential election. This is the man who is again running form president in 2008. The man who garnered the support of only five other senators in demanding we do a "kerry" and run from Iraq with our tails between our legs, a la his disservice in Vietnam.

    There are those who are already so entrenched in their hatred of Kerry, that no official Navy records, no verified eye-witness testimony, no facts will every cause them to re-evaluate their point of view. However, I am assured that there are many who, regardless of their political background, are interested the facts and see knowledge as an evolutionary process, and who take the time to research their opinions and speak from a foundation of fact. It clearly is not necessary to like John Kerry, or agree with his record as a Senator, but it seems to me that a vicious...

    Two years ago, Charleston's Billy Schachte was caught in the undertow of presidential campaign debates over the circumstances of John Kerry's first Purple Heart. He had commanded Kerry's first Vietnam combat mission and his recollection of the experience was very much different than Kerry's published account. Today, this tussle over truth and confusion simmers on just beneath the public's attention. That's likely to change soon. Television news veteran Marvin Kalb and his daughter are working through a Harvard-based grant to publish a book that will include commentary on the effectiveness and the credibility of the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth,...

    It will come as a surprise to most filmgoers that they've been waiting 30 years to see "Winter Soldier." But now that they have the chance, they won't want to miss it. This extraordinary documentary, having its first theatrical release, not only revisits events during the Vietnam War that have uncanny resonance today but also stands as a riveting example of pure filmic storytelling. An unadorned, black-and-white record of a three-day gathering in Detroit in 1971, "Winter Soldier" turns the camera on the testimony of former soldiers invited by Vietnam Veterans Against the War to share accounts of atrocities they...

    -SNIP-What is presidential intelligence and how much does it really matter? We can all recite the lists of ostentatiously brilliant presidents who faltered (Wilson, Hoover, etc.) and apparent plodders who triumphed (Truman). When I was covering the Reagan White House in 1981, all his top aides were wholesaling Oliver Wendell Holmes's famous comment about Franklin Roosevelt's possessing "a second-rate intellect, but a first-rate temperament." In the end, Reagan confounded scholars, journalists and voters alike. In an obituary essay, his biographer Edmund Morris referred first to Reagan's "intelligence" and later to his "ignorance." To be fair, innate intelligence has to do...

    WASHINGTON — All through last year's presidential race, Vietnam-era critics of Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) charged that he was trying to hide something by refusing to authorize the public release of his entire military and medical file. On Tuesday, Kerry provided access to his complete records. The long-awaited documents contained no bombshells, and his enemies still were not satisfied. The 180-page sheaf of medal commendations, officer's fitness reports and medical entries released under federal guidelines by Kerry's Senate office provided a few new nuggets of information about his 1968 to 1969 stint as a Swift boat commander during the...

The Navy is covered by the Privacy Laws. You're a lawyer, right? The SF 180 is generically addressed to the National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis. These records are 30 to 40 years old.

The Boston Globe claims this morning that John Kerry has finally made his entire service record publicly available, at least to them. Michael Kranish, who wrote unquestioning articles about Kerry's service in Viet Name before and during the presidential campaign, proclaims that the release vindicates Kerry -- but even Kranish can't add up why Kerry kept the file secret: Senator John F. Kerry, ending at least two years of refusal, has waived privacy restrictions and authorized the release of his full military and medical records. The records,...

    Newly released Navy records of Sen. John Kerry show the 2004 Democratic presidential candidate, who was portrayed as the intellectual superior of President Bush, actually received a lower academic average than his rival while studying at Yale, including five Ds. The transcript of grades, which Kerry has always declined to release, was part of a set of Naval records requested and finally received by the Boston Globe. Last month, Kerry gave the Navy permission to release the records to the paper, something he refused to do during last fall's campaign. While Bush and Kerry were at Yale, the school had...

As WorldNetDaily reported, Judicial Watch learned last week that the Defense Department informed Secretary of the Navy Gordon R. England of the group's formal request to investigate alleged military code violations in Kerry's Silver Star.

    Following upon Thomas Sowell's excellent essay on the MSM's continued protection of John Kerry from any negative press, I came across several additional pieces of the puzzle. Sowell makes the point that Kerry never signed his Form 180, making public his Navy record, while Bush did so for his ANG record. However, a further look at Kerry's DD-214 -- the document issued to every US servicemember who leaves active duty after more than 180 days of service -- shows several interesting things the NY Times and Boston Globe would kill to keep secret. Note that: 1. Kerry was separated from...

You could tell it was cut out mid senctence. If true, that stinks. What happened to honest journalism.

Ironically, and precisely because of his Vietnam experience, I will join most Vietnamese Americans in opposing his candidacy. Ever since Lieutenant Kerry chased and executed a wounded communist guerrilla more than 30 years ago, he has done everything in his power to support the communist regime's efforts to strangle human rights and democracy in Vietnam. Senator Kerry has also become one of the most loyal boosters of Hanoi's interests in America. The victorious communists of Vietnam have publicly and repeatedly over the years thanked...

Soviet troops had invaded Afghanistan. Marxist rebels had seized the nation of Angola in Africa. In Central America, Marxist guerrillas were...

    John Kerry was lieutenant governor of Massachusetts from 1983 to 1985, a fact most Americans--even Kerry supporters--either don't know, or ignore. And with good reason. The obvious, of course, is that Kerry desires not to be associated with his former colleague, then Governor Michael Dukakis, the same Dukakis that unsuccessfully ran against George H. W. Bush for President. John Kerry has many reasons to wholy ignore his record as lieutenant governor, similar to his reasons for avoiding his short stint as a prosecutor from 1976 to 1979.

    Sen. John Kerry has been called many things during his high-profile 20-year career in the U.S. Senate, but the lasting legacy of the junior Democrat from Massachusetts may be easy to define: He's more an investigator than a legislator. His defining moments have included a progression of signature investigations that, by design, thrust him into the national spotlight. Some, mostly Democrats, have called his investigative efforts relentless and groundbreaking. Others, mostly Republicans, have labeled them as shameless grandstanding.

    Federal News Service -- HEARING OF THE SENATE COMMERCE, SCIENCE AND TRANSPORTATION COMMITTEE -- L/N | OCTOBER 20, 1993 | John Kerry
    SEN. KERRY: Now, you know, here in Washington, if Jay Leno isn't working for you, you can switch quickly over to -- I think it's Channel 5 -- and pick up cops running around with people at night, you know, intruding into homes, arresting, people crying, all these kinds of things that seem to titillate. Why are our cops being allowed to do that? I mean, there is an amazing amount of cooperation in the making of that. Why, if it is not good, are they permitted to allow these people to follow them into the homes and everywhere else?...

    For the most part, I support President Bush’s handling of the war on terror and his domestic policy, but that’s not the main reasons why I am voting for him. My vote for President Bush is as much a vote in opposition to Sen. John Kerry. Specifically, it is the behavior of Kerry after he returned from four months in Vietnam that makes me angry. Two days before President Bush’s visit, I shared a "Bloomin’ Onion" at the Outback restaurant in west Lantana, Fla. with a neighbor, a retired police chief. Jim Corr, now a resident of Palm Beach County,...

    The Washington Post ^ | October 20, 2004 | Helen Dewar and Thomas e. Ricks
    In Senate debates and media interviews over the years, John F. Kerry has repeatedly returned to three axioms on the use of military force: Win as much allied support as possible before going to war, listen to advice from the professionals, and, most significant, heed the many lessons of the Vietnam War. NATO and the United Nations appear to be touchstones for the Democratic nominee, not just the troublesome hurdles that they appear to be to President Bush. In speeches over the years, Kerry repeatedly has denounced unilateral action. Kerry's belief in working with allies runs so deep that he...

    Congressional Record -- Senate No. 117 -- 103rd Cong. 1st Sess.--- 139 Cong Rec S 11157 | September 9, 1993 | Kerry
    Mr. KERRY. It is my judgment that there should be no ban on homosexuals serving in the military. I testified to this point before the Committee on Armed Services, and I encouraged President Clinton to take action to rescind the ban. I see no reason whatsoever that homosexuals serving in the military should be a threat to our national security, to the ability of our armed services to carry out their missions, or to heterosexuals who serve in the armed services. Homosexuals, like heterosexuals, should be subject to behavioral requirements which prohibit sexual misconduct and which limit sexual [*S11206] activity...

    Some 20 Year Senate Record. What a joke! Just How Many Bills Has Kerry Passed? Bush said Kerry passed five bills. Kerry said he's passed 56. Who's right? That depends on the definition of "passed" and "bills." October 15, 2004 Modified:October 16, 2004 Summary At the final presidential debate, Bush said Kerry had passed only five bills during his career, and Kerry said he had passed 56. Actually, we found eleven measures authored by Kerry have been signed into law, including a save-the-dolphins law, a law naming a federal building, a law giving a posthumous award to Jackie Robinson last...

    In the early 1990s, Kerry headed a Senate committee that was supposed to determine whatever became of American troops in the Vietnam War whose whereabouts were not recorded. Under his leadership, the panel concluded there was “no evidence” that any Americans left behind in Vietnam were still alive. Shortly after Kerry declared to the world, “President Bush should reward Vietnam within a month for its increased cooperation in accounting for American MIAs.” Hanoi then announced that it had awarded a fat contract to Boston real estate firm Colliers International, then headed by the senator’s cousin Stuart Forbes. Colliers International was...

    October 15, 2004 Bush vs. Kerry -- It's a Debate Knock Out George C. Landrith In 1946, then-heavyweight champion Joe Louis was asked how he would do against the lighter and faster challenger, Bill Conn. Lewis said, “He can run, but he can’t hide.” Lewis was right. In the eighth round Lewis knocked out the more nimble Conn, leaving him sprawled on the canvas. President George W. Bush has been saying John Kerry can run from his 20-year liberal Senate record, but he cannot hide. In the final debate, Bush bore down on his verbally nimble challenger and knocked Kerry...

    Social Darwinism has reared its head. Senator Kerry wasn't busted for *anything* while serving at Lt Governor under Dukakis in Massachusetts, or as Senator, or during the Democratic Party primaries... ...But so far in the general election he's been busted for: falsely claiming Senator Bob KerrEy's key vote on one bill, for falsely claiming Senator Bob KerrEy's Vice Chairmanship of the Senate Intel Committee, for not being in Cambodia on Christmas of 1968, for not being sent to Cambodia by Nixon (who wasn't even in office then), for having the "V" on his Silver Star, and for getting 2 purple...

    Saturday, July 31, 2004John Kerry in the Senate: "The Man Who Wasn't There" Yesterday on ABC's World News Tonight, John Kerry attempted to refute the notion that he has a thin record in the United States Senate, stating, "I've introduced many pieces of legislation that are the law of the land today…" The reality is that during his 19 years in the United States Senate, only five bills and four resolutions John Kerry has been a lead sponsor on have become laws. These bills and resolutions are listed below, following a quote from Dick Morris on Kerry's meager Senate record...

    To:       Interested PartiesFrom:   Bush-Cheney '04 CommunicationsDate:    10/14/04Re:       Civics 101: John Kerry's Thin             Senate Record Last night, President Bush said John Kerry "introduced 300 some bills and he's passed five," meaning just five of Kerry's bills became law.  Kerry responded by claiming, "I've actually passed 56 individual bills that I've personally written."  Nineteen years is long enough for most senators to learn how a bill becomes a law, but John Kerry and his campaign seem to need a civics lesson.  A bill does not become a law until it passes the Senate, passes the House, is reconciled by a conference committee, passes...
