  • Kerry's flip-flop on global warming

    John Kerry is now severely criticizing President Bush for withdrawing from the Kyoto Protocol. On July 25, 1997, however, he joined 94 other senators who voted for Senate Resolution 98, which says that the U.S. should not ratify the Kyoto Protocol if: 1) it did not impose restrictions on developing countries, and 2) it would "would result in serious harm to the economy. ..." The Kyoto Protocol fails both tests. It is binding on only 36 of the world's 191 nations, and it would result in extremely serious harm to the U.S. economy. John Kerry now supports the Kyoto Protocol,...

    NEVER HAVE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE elected as president a candidate with a record on national security issues resembling that of John Kerry. Consider some of the distinctive national security choices Kerry has made over the years. *** April 22, 1971: The American people have never elected president someone who, while serving in the military, chose to testify (in uniform) against a war his country was then waging. Lt. Kerry asserted before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that his country and his fellow service members were guilty in Vietnam of "crimes committed on a day-to-day basis with the full awareness of...
  • Kerry Ties to Radical Activism

    10/08/2004 1:44:47 PM PDT · by Brian Mosely · 5 replies · 378+ views
    Radical activism in America has made strident attempts to hijack the political process over the last few years. Take, for example, the recent voter fraud charges [Bill Hobbs at the Detroit FreePress has several examples] as political organizations attempt to get out the vote. Also remember the plans that were interrupted during the Republican National Convention in Philidelphia in 2000. CNN reported that "At the convention in Philadelphia, police said, gasoline-soaked rags tied to chains and a three-person rubber slingshot seized from protesters were similar to ones used in Seattle. The piano wire, police said, was to be used to...

    National Review Online ^ | October 06, 2004 | Bruce Bartlett
    One of the biggest problems that John Kerry has is that he is still an enigma to most people. We all know more than we want about his service in Vietnam, but very little about what he has done between then and now. In particular, his 20-year Senate career is a blank. For this reason, I found of great interest the new book by former Senate staffer Winslow T. Wheeler, The Wastrels of Defense: How Congress Sabotages U.S. Security. Wheeler spent 31 years working on national defense issues for both Republican and Democratic senators. The main point of his...

  • Blown opportunity: Kerry missed 75% of Intelligence Committee meetings (vanity)

    10/04/2004 9:14:43 PM PDT · by Mount Athos · 14 replies · 557+ views
    WHY are Republicans not focusing like a laser on the fact that Kerry missed over 75% of his Intelligence Committee meetings, including a full straight year after 9/11? No mention in advertising, debates, panel discussions... Surely this devastating information could sway some voters? If Kerry is so concerned about national security, what is he doing skipping out on the vast majority of Intelligence Committee meetings? Isn't this a major hole in his credibility? I feel this is a major blown opportunity. I hope Cheney mentions this somehow during his debate tomorrow.

    Congressional Record
    Kerry sounded authoritative in the first debate, but what is he an athority on? How many bills on the war on terrorism did John Kerry author? How many did he sponsor or co-sponsor. How many homeland security bills or amendments did he author, how many did he sponsor or co-sponsor? How many speeches did he give on the senate floor regarding foreign policy? What significant impact did he have on any foreign policy issues? Well, I guess he was just saving up all his great ideas for when he ran for president, because I believe the answer to all these...

    Rocky Mountain News ^ | Oct. 2, 2004 | RMN Editorial
    Thursday's presidential debate was about foreign policy, yet one candidate's extensive record on foreign policy going back more than two decades was never actually discussed. The focus of the debate was primarily on President George W. Bush's three-year war on terror, which Bush occasionally tried to steer toward an inspection of Sen. John Kerry's shifting attitude toward the conflict in Iraq. Bush's failure to highlight Kerry's Senate record is one of several missed opportunities for the president. Another one worth noting: Bush never effectively detailed Saddam Hussein's support for various terrorist causes and notorious individual terrorists in response to Kerry's...

    As the Sandinistas and the contras sat down this week for their first face-to-face meeting at Sapoa, Nicaragua, they added another chapter to the book of American failures in Central America. Even if "neither side seeks a military victory over the other," as rebel negotiator Alfredo Cesar said after Monday's talk, the truth of the matter is that a diplomatic peace is also far from the minds of both sides

    This business about Kerry not receiving an honorable discharge until 2000 is simply untrue. The real story of Kerry's discharge is interesting enough, we don't need to be making things up. Kerry actually received his honorable discharge in February 1978, not 30 years after his service ended, as so many threads here on FR have alleged. Here is the document: http://www.johnkerry.com/pdf/jkmilservice/Honorable_Discharge_From_Reserve.pdf Here is the full timeline, which Kerry was given by the Navy years later: http://www.johnkerry.com/pdf/jkmilservice/Request_For_History_of_Service.pdf Note that that's quite a long time as an inactive standby reservist--six years. Kerry left active duty in 1970. He left the naval reserves...

    Kerry and The Communists A significant effect of the John Kerry-led 1971 protests was it strengthened the resolve of the North Vietnamese to continue to hold American POWs (see here). The Nhan Dan daily newspaper of the North Vietnamese Communist party wrote that the protests in the United States were "a wave among the big waves which are rising higher and higher." The paper also referred to the Kerry group as the "millions of American troops who have participated in the criminal war in Vietnam and were sent back to the United States to the ingratitude of the U.S. administration...

    Undisputed are the facts that when John Kerry met with the enemy overseas in 1970 and 1971, and when he lied before Congress, he was an officer in the US Naval Reserve (he was not discharged until 1978, 1998, or 2001, depending upon which forged document you believe). Here's an initial list of his crimes...

    Swift Veterans for Truth ^ | 9/17/04 | Geoffrey
    Kerry knew in 2002 when he was preparing his "search committee" that, if his Senate record became an issue or was even talked about on talk radio, they would start at the beginning: 1985. If they did, he knew he was done-for. So he had to come up with some way of distracting conservative talk radio. I guess he rolled the dice and figured he would rather weather the storm over his post-Vietnam activites than have anyone talk about his first four years as a Senator. He probably figured his military record was enough to pull a few pro-military/anti-Bush conservatives...

    So is John Kerry a war hero or a medal-grabbing phony? Each time that I've written about President Bush's dalliance with the National Guard, conservative readers have urged me to scrutinize the accusations against Mr. Kerry. After doing so over the last week, here's where I come out: Did Mr. Kerry volunteer for dangerous duty? Not as much as his campaign would like you to believe. The Kerry Web site declares, "As he was graduating from Yale, John Kerry volunteered to serve in Vietnam - because, as he later said, 'It was the right thing to do.' " In fact,...

    Kerry can't shake his anti-war past By KEN CONCANNON Journal Messenger Columnist Manassas Journal Messenger Friday, September 17, 2004 Talk about burning your bridges. When John Kerry became an anti-war activist in the early '70s and decided to publicly slander his fellow Vietnam vets, his so-called "band of brothers," he made a whole lot of enemies who just will not go away. I received an E-mail earlier this week from a Vietnam veteran, a retired Air Force colonel, who forwarded to me an E-mail from another veteran, a Navy seal, who had taken it upon himself to investigate John Kerry's...

    For years it was said that Jane Fonda committed treason when she went to Vietnam in July 1972.  In the late 1990s, with increasingly widespread use of the Internet, the charge became a staple of discussion by conservatives and veterans.  However, their belief in Fonda’s criminality was not substantiated.  We undertook to do just that, and laid out the definitive case against her in our 2002 book, “Aid and Comfort”: Jane Fonda In North Vietnam. A current parallel has arisen in connection with the presidential candidacy of John Kerry.  For the past several weeks, the Internet has been ablaze with...
