  • Rank behavior: Liveshot mum about pal’s disgrace

    The Boston Herald ^ | July 31, 2011 | Howie Carr
    Wade Rowland Sanders used to be this close to Sen. John Forbes Kerry. He and Liveshot were both Vietnam vets, Navy swift boaters, officers and gentlemen. They were awarded Silver Stars for their gallantry. During the 2004 presidential campaign, Sanders accused Republicans of running “vicious public distortions” of his dear friend’s war record. The retired captain would do anything for Lt. John “Reporting for Duty” Kerry, USN (ret.), and vice versa. But that was then, and this is now — and if you ask Liveshot about Wade Sanders today, the answer is, in effect, “Wade who?”

    Those of us masochistic enough to have watched the 2004 Democratic convention might faintly recall the name Captain Wade Sanders. [snip] While Sanders’s record as a Democratic hack suggested he might have political reasons for supporting Kerry, Sanders also had a stellar military record, having been awarded a Silver Star in 1992, and his credibility wasn’t much in question. That’s why The Scrapbook feels compelled to point out the ignominious denouement of the Wade -Sanders career. Yes, it’s true that Sanders is currently doing time in a federal penitentiary after admitting to being in possession of child pornography. As bad...

    Except for a few intrepid news and opinion outlets, plus Navy Times, a respected military newspaper, a cone of liberal silence descended around shocking news that a Silver Star medal for gallantry was yanked from a high-ranking Navy officer back in August 2010. No why is given; it is shrouded in the mist of military bureaucracy.

    If John Kerry had been elected President of the United States in November 2004, especially with the incoming majority Democrat Congress, it is highly likely that Iraq would be in the midst of a civil war, Iran’s regional influence would have increased, Israel would be in more jeopardy than it is now, two Supreme Court seats would be occupied by clones of John Stevens and Ruth Bader Ginsburg instead of by John Roberts and Samuel Alito, judicial decisions would have given even more “rights” to enemy combatants, domestic entitlements and earmarks would have skyrocketed, the Bush tax cuts would be...

    At least 121 Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans have committed a killing or been charged in one in the United States after returning from combat, The New York Times reported Sunday. The newspaper said it also logged 349 homicides involving all active-duty military personnel and new veterans in the six years since military action began in Afghanistan, and later Iraq. That represents an 89-percent increase over the previous six-year period, the newspaper said. About three-quarters of those homicides involved Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans, the newspaper said. The report did not illuminate the exact relationship between those cases and the...

    A federal judge dismissed a filmmaker's defamation lawsuit against Sen. John Kerry, saying remarks linked to Kerry's campaign during the heat of the 2004 presidential race amount to political opinions. Filmmaker Carlton Sherwood sued Kerry and John Podesta, an aide who ran the Massachusetts Democrat's campaign in Pennsylvania. Sherwood accused them of blocking the release of his documentary about Kerry's anti-Vietnam War activities by labeling Sherwood a "disgraced journalist" and a "Bush hack." The Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc. canceled plans to air the documentary "Stolen Honor: Wounds That Never Heal" on its stations before the November 2004 election. U.S. District...

    PHILADELPHIA --Several Vietnam War veterans who sued over a documentary about Sen. John Kerry's anti-war activities have dropped their libel suits, leaving just one lawsuit pending over the controversial 2004 film. Filmmaker Carlton Sherwood says the outcome shows the suits were frivolous complaints filed by Kerry operatives to try to block the film's release in the final weeks of the presidential race. "We've always believed that Kerry controlled these lawsuits," Sherwood said Monday. He said the suits were dropped as depositions got under way. "We also felt we were getting a tad too close to the truth about Kerry."

    A controversial documentary titled Stolen Honor: Wounds That Never Heal, about Sen. John F. Kerry’s anti-Vietnam War activities in the 1970s that was released just before the 2004 presidential election sparked at least five politically charged lawsuits. Now there’s only one. In recent weeks, lawyers for the plaintiffs have dropped three libel suits brought by anti-war veterans who said they were falsely portrayed in the film made by journalist Carlton Sherwood. Sherwood was also hit with a copyright infringement suit in New York that accused him of unfairly including clips from another film and photos from a book. But that...

Perhaps Moyers forgot that he clearly showed his liberal stripes when he devoted his last "Now” broadcast to a fierce blast at "the right-wing media.” Moyers became embroiled in controversy after Kenneth Tomlinson took over as chairman of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and cited "Now” as a chief reason why he wanted to bring "balance” to public broadcasting with more conservative programming.

    Family Vote Wins It Yesterday the American people voted decisively to re-elect President Bush. It was suppose to be among the closest races in our history. But the pundits and pollsters were wrong. The exit polls were really wrong. So, what happened? On the face of it, the media elites did not factor in the strong Christian vote. For all the hoopla we have been hearing from the media about new voters, cell phone voters and young voters, the evidence suggests they never materialized. Yet conservative Christians turned out in droves. They turned out because they are worried about the...

    Second Thoughts 11-3-04 By: William W. Lawrence My deadline for submitting this column was Sunday, so I do not know who has been elected to the most important job in the world. I am hopeful that President Bush has been re-elected, but I will not move to France if Kerry has won. *** I went to see Stolen Honor: Wounds That Never Heal at the American Legion Post 926 in Aston last Wednesday. It was sponsored by resolute State Representative Stephen Barrar. The 42-minute film is giving Vietnam veterans, who have put up with years of abuse, a chance to...

  • NewsMax, DISH Network Air ‘Stolen Honor’

    11/01/2004 12:38:44 PM PST · by KiloLima · 3 replies · 203+ views ^ | Sunday, Oct. 31, 2004 | NewsMax has broken the media's censorship of the controversial documentary "Stolen Honor: Wounds That Never Heal" and has begun airing the film on national television. Beginning Saturday morning, NewsMax began airing the documentary, directed by award-winning journalist Carlton Sherwood, on national networks and on local networks across the nation. Sherwood's account of John Kerry's activities as a leader of the Vietnam anti-war movement has infuriated the Kerry campaign. "Very simply, the press has accepted everything John Kerry has said for the past 33 years," Sherwood said, explaing the media's reluctance to air his film or offer the public a detailed...

    Three times in two weeks, the Kerry campaign and the Democratic Party shredded the Constitution of the United States of America. They did so near the place where America was born – Philadelphia – just miles from Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. On October 19, 2004, a movie theater in Jenkintown Pennsylvania, a suburban borough just north of Philadelphia with a population of about 4500, was scheduled to show the documentary Stolen Honor. This movie features the testimony of Vietnam POW’s critical of John Kerry. However, after receiving threats of "civil disobedience" (i.e. destruction of property and possible physical...
