    The National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) has provided the following website for veterans to gain access to their DD-214s online: This may be particularly helpful when a veteran needs a copy of his DD-214 for employment purposes. NPRC is working to make it easier for veterans with computers and Internet access to obtain copies of documents from their military files. Military veterans and the next of kin of deceased former military members may now use a new online military personnel records system to request documents. Other individuals with a need for documents must still complete the Standard Form 180,...

    If Bush is dumb...? Larry Elder June 23, 2005 "Does anyone in America doubt," said former New York Times executive editor Howell Raines before the 2004 presidential election, "that [presidential candidate Sen. John] Kerry has a higher IQ than [President George W.] Bush? I'm sure the candidates' SATs and college transcripts would put Kerry far ahead." And, on March 6, 2004, a New York Times article called the way Kerry thinks through problems "the mark of an intellectual who grasps the subtleties of issues, inhabits their nuances and revels in the deliberative process." The Los Angeles Times dismissed Bush's achievements,...

    Even as a young scholar, John F. Kerry had nuance. Apparently, so much so that his professors at Yale mistook him for an idiot. At least, that’s the look of things from Kerry’s records as a college student. As it turns out, if the Dr. Stephen Hawking Award for Genius was handed out between the two candidates in the 2004 presidential election, George W. Bush would have taken home the prize. It seems that Kerry—the supposedly complex, intellectual giant of the 2004 presidential campaign—received four D's out of ten classes his freshman year at Yale, and an overall composite grade...

    By far the funniest line I've read since the 2004 election comes from the conclusion of Michael Kranish's interview of Sen. John F. Kerry in today's Boston Globe (hat-tip to an alert reader who emailed me the link): Asked what hurt him the most during the campaign, Kerry mused about how ''all of us are flawed as human beings" and ''I think I have a strong record" before raising his voice and declaring: ''One thing I know is that I didn't flip-flop on anything." Surely that line must induce soda-through-the-nose chortling among even many loyal but clear-eyed Democrats. It would...

    Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, today asked Sen. John F. Kerry to keep his word to the American public and sign a Standard Form 180 (SF 180), “Request Pertaining to Military Records.” On Sunday, Jan. 30, 2005, during an appearance on the NBC News show “Meet the Press,” moderator Tim Russert asked Sen. Kerry (three times) if he would sign an SF 180 and release all of his military records. On the third attempt Sen. Kerry answered Mr. Russert plainly: MR. RUSSERT: Would you sign Form 180? SEN. KERRY: Yes, I will.

    Here we are less than two weeks from the election and John Kerry is still playing "hide the ball." The last thing he wants most of us -- excluding his loony, militant base -- to know is who he really is. Kerry knows that if he releases his military records or is forthright about his true beliefs on the issues, he won't stand a ghost of a chance. His entire campaign, therefore, has been little more than an extended "wink and a nod." He is locked in an unspoken conspiracy with his wild-eyed Michael Moore/George Soros/Whoopi Goldberg base to feint...

    Military Record Unlike McCain, Bush, and Gore, Kerry has adamantly refused to authorize the release of his military records. Most think it's because of his phony battle medals. I think the real reason is below. He was not granted an Honorable Discharge until March 2001, almost 30 years after his ostensible service term had ended! This is very much out of the ordinary, and highly suspect. There are 5 classes of Discharge: Honorable, General, Other Than Honorable, Bad Conduct, and Dishonorable. My guess is that he was Discharged in the '70s, but not Honorably. He appealed this sometime while Clinton...

But no one seems to want to “connect the dots” for fear of offending the powers that be in the national media, such as CBS. Here is what we know. First of all, Kerry did not “volunteer” for service in Vietnam....

    Although both President Bush and Sen. John F. Kerry have repeatedly said they have made public their complete military service records, neither presidential candidate has yet permitted independent access to original files held in a high-security vault. The lack of outside verification of the military personnel records of the candidates has made it more difficult for journalists and historians to evaluate their Vietnam War-era service, which has been the subject of lively election-year debate. In Bush's case, Texas Air National Guard officials have also delayed or prevented public access to 30-year-old unit records that could shed light on whether he...

The documents, many of which were duplicates, provided details about Bush’s service in the Guard from 1968 until 1973. The president’s medical records, dozens of pages in all, were also opened to reporters in the Roosevelt Room (search), but were not allowed to be taken out of the room.

Kerry, who should have been discharged from the Navy about the same time -- July 1, 1972 -- wasn't given the discharge he has on his campaign Web site until July 13, 1978. What delayed the discharge for six years? This raises serious questions about Kerry's performance while in the reserves that are far more potentialy damaging than those raised against Bush.

    Thursday, August 26, 2004 Put up or shut up, Sen. Kerry Posted: August 26, 20041:00 a.m. Eastern By Benjamin Shapiro © 2004 Creators Syndicate, Inc. In Jewish thought, there is a concept called "midah k'neged midah" – literally, "measure for measure." Jews invoke this phrase when the punishment for an action fits the crime perfectly. A flawless example: Stephanie and Bryan Loudermilk of Okeechobee County, Fla., created fetish videos in which Stephanie stepped on and crushed live animals. Bryan ended up as roadkill in June 1999, crushed to death beneath the rear wheels of his own truck. Poetic justice. It seems John...

    Hentoff says there is a "SMOKING GUN" in today's Washington Post article (by Dobbs) about the Swift Boat Vets for the truth--- Hentoff quotes the sentence by Dobbs that KERRY REFUSES TO RELEASE HIS RECORDS. This, according to Hentoff, is the smoking gun. What is Kerry hiding, asks Hentoff.Hentoff is also ticked off about the lack of reporting of Kerry/DEMOCRAT connections to their 527s. He mentions HAROLD ICKES as one of the main culprits.Hentoff accuses mainstream journalists of MALPRACTICE. He says the antidote is the book, Unfit for Command, which is flying off the shelves of bookstores. He says the...

    “The staff of military personnel of the Classified Operational Archives created an arrangement system based on the Navy's command structure going from the President, fleets, forces, type commands, shore establishments, individual ships, non-Navy commands, non-US commands, to individual personnel. Within each section, the records are arranged alphbetically by the name of the originating command. All of the documents from one command are arranged chronologically by the date of the document. This system of arrangement was used for the war diaries, action reports, and operation plans received by the Chief of Naval Operations during World War II. From the beginning these...

    MILITARY RECORDS SEEM TO BACK POODLE Finally, we seem to have a little fact-checking by the media going on with regard to The Poodle's military service in Vietnam. At issue is whether or not The Poodle came under any enemy fire during a mission on March 13, 1969. John Kerry won a Bronze Star for his actions that day. One of the Swift Vets, Larry Thurlow, who commanded another swift boat alongside The Poodle, has said that Kerry did not come under any fire, and that the Bronze Star was another one of Kerry's sham medals. The Washington Post finally...
  • John Kerry: Scaredycat

    John Kerry is a scaredycat. There's no better word to describe him at this point in time. How dare I write such a thing about a decorated war veteran? Well, the folks who will surely ask that question upon reading this article assume that Mr. Kerry is what he claims to be. I do not make that assumption, just as I do not assume that the people currently accusing him of deliberate acts of deceit and treachery are correct in all their assertions, although I suspect that most of them honestly believe him to be a despicable character. When it...
