    George W. Bush ^ | October 13, 2004
    John Kerry is trying to run from his twenty year liberal record but he can’t hide from his 98 votes to raise taxes, his six votes against banning partial-birth abortion or his big government health care plan. If that’s not enough to convince you Kerry deserves his ranking as the Senate’s most liberal member, check out Kerry’s record for yourself.Learn More About Kerry's Liberal Record:Kerry's Liberal Statistics | Kerry Called a LiberalLiberal on the Issues That Matter:Taxes | Compassion & Values | Health Care | Education | Safety & Security | Environment & Energy KERRY LIBERAL STATISTICS BACK TO...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

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...

    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...

"I'm a Democrat but I'm not voting for him," said Mr. Seabourne, a retired postal worker, as he sipped on a pint of beer at Rookies, a local sports bar.

That is how John Kerry’s official web site is currently dealing with the news media in regards to the delicate subject of when John Kerry was “discharged” from the U.S. Navy. Why does this matter? Because John Kerry does not want the news media reporter or the civilian voter unfamiliar with military jargon to know that he was still a U.S. Naval officer at the time he was the leader of Vietnam Veterans Against the War. The effectiveness of such deliberate deceit by Kerry can be seen by the...

In so doing, it should be pointed out that this resolution is not a Gulf of Tonkin resolution on the Persian Gulf. Quite the contrary, this resolution reflects the near unanimity of the global community in condemning this aggressive act by a brutal dictator.

Douglas Brinkley, the 43-year-old author who wrote "Tour of Duty," the biographical account of Kerry's time in Vietnam, described it this way: "I'm talking a massive archive. I had to sit in his house, with this woman watching me, and go through the collection – 12-page...

    HOME STRETCH OCTOBER 25, 1996 TRANSCRIPT -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- In one of the closest, and most exciting, races in the country, Massachusetts Senator John Kerry is trying to stave off a strong challenge from popular Governor Bill Weld. As election day approaches, both candidates are getting more pointed in their attacks. Margaret Warner reports on this contest, which polls say is a statistical dead heat. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- MARGARET WARNER: With 10 days to go before the election, the race between Democratic Senator John Kerry and his Republican challenger, Governor William Weld, remains too close to call. But the dynamic of the campaign has...
  • Kerry's Naval Reserve History

    08/27/2004 1:41:44 PM PDT · by staggerwing · 11 replies · 603+ views
    On 18 Feb. 1966 John Kerry signed a 6 year enlistment contract with the Navy (plus a 6-month extension during wartime). On 18 Feb. 1966 John Kerry also signed an Officer Candidate contract for 6 years -- 5 years of ACTIVE duty & ACTIVE Naval Reserves, and 1 year of inactive standby reserves (See items #4 & $5). Because John Kerry was discharged from TOTAL ACTIVE DUTY of only 3 years and 18 days on 3 Jan. 1970, he was then required to attend 48 drills per year, and not more than 17 days active duty for training. Kerry was...

    John Forbes Kerry Timeline ^ | August 27, 2004 | christie/Two Step
    Several days I ago I realized that all the dates of John Kerry's activities were totally jumbled in my head. I sat down to make a little timeline. It grew into a massive timeline - and covers his entire life. I know several other FReepers had the same confusion. So here is the result. It is still a work in progress, and any additions, corrections, etc. will be most appreciated.The entire timeline along with pictures will be archived at my web site: http://www.archive-news.net/Kerry/JK_timeline.html. I will be making the additions there, so you might want to bookmark that site. John...

    Insight ^ | 8/26/04 | Scott Stanley
    News management may have reached an embarrassing low in the Los Angeles Times for March 23 where an article by staff writer John M. Glionna purports to offer selections from the FBI file on soon-to-be Democratic presidential nominee John F. Kerry, who was under surveillance by the G-Men as a member of the executive board of the pro-Viet Cong Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW). Presenting items from 50 documents carefully selected from what it reported were 14 boxes of related government papers 12 feet high, the Times confirmed from the FBI and other witnesses that Kerry had resigned from...

    Kerry's recklessness disrupted Vietnam missions, former commander says Former commander weighs in as part of group claiming Democratic candidate embellished war record. Larry Peterson 912.652.0367 larry.peterson@savannahnow.com http://www.savannahnow.com/stories/082404/2394687.shtml A Savannah man in charge of some of John Kerry's boat patrols during the Vietnam War says the young Navy officer's reckless conduct sometimes disrupted missions. "I had a lot of trouble getting him to follow orders," said Tom Wright, who - like Kerry - served on 50-foot Swift Boats that prowled rivers, looked for trouble and often found it. Wright is in the thick of the ongoing mudfest over whether the Democratic...

    "Kerry was not simply part of the "anti-war" movement of the 1960s. Many of us opposed the Vietnam war then for a variety of reasons. What Kerry did was accuse Americans still fighting in Vietnam of widespread atrocities on a daily basis, atrocities authorized all the way up the chain of command, atrocities committed for racial reasons, doing things to the Vietnamese that we would never do to Europeans." "What John Kerry and many similar 1960s activists said, amplified by the media, created an atmosphere in which men who had risked their lives for this country in Vietnam returned to...

    John Kerry has taken to pleading for a return to debate on current issues and more relevant qualifications for the presidency in a bid to bury the debate on his Viet Nam record, which at one time was all Kerry would discuss on the stump. Speaking in New York, Kerry told a crowd that all the Bush campaign had was fear, while he wanted to talk about how he could outperform Bush in areas such as foreign policy. So let's talk foreign policy, as practiced right here at home, by Senator Kerry. Earlier this evening, I had the pleasure of...

John Kerry, the presumptive Democratic Party presidential nominee, can mix it up on the rink. The most recent example, a fundraiser back in January, showed that even an out-of-shape Kerry can skate with Ray Bourque, Rick Middleton, Lyndon Byers and Ken Hodge. He even scored a couple of goals, at the age of 60. John Kerry, pictured with his lacrosse team in 1959. "The image the game conveyed was one of vigor, youth,...
