  • Vets Against Kerry Celebrate in DC Too

    Leaders of prominent "527" military service veterans groups, film producers, Websites and authors who made substantial contributions to the veterans revolt against Senator John Kerry's 2004 Presidential bid were honored by their supporters at an "Un-augural" reception at the National Press Club Thursday. Unlike the scores of balls, parades and fetes typical of the frenetic day, the tongue-in-cheek event at the Club's First Amendment room was, according to organizer Lou Priebe, geared to "celebrate the absence of Senator Kerry from the Inauguration Day proceedings, most particularly the swearing-in ceremony." U.S. Army Infantry veteran Lou Priebe added, "These courageous advocacy groups...

The first 200 of you are invited to attend the first John Kerry UN-augural that is to be held in the National Press Club (13th floor) on Inauguration Day, Jan. 20th, from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM.

By recognizing each other and some of the "unsung heroes" of our "Kerry Lied" effort, to include...

Rodriguez provides a tour through the dark heart of America. From the Bay of Pigs fiasco to Vietnam to the El Salvador death squads to the Iran-Contra scandal, the Cuban exile and self-described "CIA hero" was there. His most famous assassination mission came in 1967, when he led the Bolivian army group that captured and summarily executed leftist revolutionary Ernesto "Che" Guevara. He's...

    Last week was the KerryLied Rally in Washington, D.C. that many Vietnam veterans had been waiting months for. It was a good rally, Free Republic was well represented, especially with Tax Relief constantly sitrepping Huber, who was keeping the world updated through Free Republic. The weather was great, and everybody went home feeling good about coming together to repudiate the lies, treachery, deceit and traitorous behavior of John Forbes Kerry in 1970, 1971, and 1972. For some of us it was only the start. Mentor, Ohio is a bedroom suburb of Cleveland, snuggled up under Lake Erie 25 miles to...

    Sunday, Sept. 12, was a perfect day for a trip to Washington, D.C. The sort of day where rallies are perfect - no rain clouds in sight. A nice day to head to D.C. for the "Kerry Lied ... While Good Men Died" protest against John Kerry. After the two-hour ride on I-81 north and I-66 east toward Northern Virginia, we found it beneficial to do the park and ride with the Metro at the Vienna/Nutley Street station and take the orange line directly into D.C. When we arrived at the station, we could tell right away that most of...

    Thousands of Vietnam veterans and their families and friends applauded, yelled support and waved signs and flags for more than two hours yesterday at an anti-John Kerry rally outside the U.S. Capitol. "John Kerry is not fit to tie the shoes of the heroes we have here at this rally," said John O'Neill of Houston, a member of the Swift Boat crews who have disclaimed the Democratic presidential candidate's statements about his military service. "Leave John Kerry to command the largest vessel he's ever competently handled — his surfboard," said another speaker, B.G. Burkett, 60, another veteran and author of...

    Washington (AP) - With the U.S. Capitol as a backdrop, hundreds of Vietnam veterans rallied Sunday against fellow veteran and Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry. The event was sponsored by Vietnam Veterans for the Truth. The group's president, Larry Bailey, accused Kerry of lying three decades ago when he returned from Vietnam and gave testimony before the U.S. Senate alleging widespread atrocities by American troops. Bailey's speech was briefly interrupted when a shouting match broke out between a lone Kerry supporter - another Vietnam vet, in a wheelchair - and several of the anti-Kerry vets. Before the rally, Kerry supporters...

    Today's rally in Washington by Vietnam veterans who think that "Kerry lied . . . while good men died" is far from the worst his presidential campaign will see from those who feel betrayed by his assertion that atrocities were condoned and commonplace. Far more devastating is the testimony of former prisoners of war, such as Medal of Honor recipient Leo K. Thorsness of Walnut Grove, Minn., who was held for five years and 19 days and who explains why John Kerry's actions of 30 years ago are relevant now. Thorsness is among a group who were captives in North...

    THIS IS A REPOST FROM WINTERSOLDIER - GO TO ARTICLE FOR PICTURES. In the Vietnamese Communist War Remnants Museum (formerly known as the "War Crimes Museum") in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), a photograph of John Kerry hangs in a room dedicated to the anti-war activists who helped the Vietnamese Communists win the Vietnam War. The photograph shows Senator Kerry being greeted by the General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam, Comrade Do Muoi. Jeffrey M. Epstein of Vietnam Vets for the Truth acquired the photograph over the Memorial Day weekend as America was commemorating its military heroes. Epstein's...

    Col. Hackworth, Over the years, I have enjoyed very much your rather acerbic columns dedicated to rooting out corruption in the armed services. I was in the USN more years ago than I like to remember. On my first (and only) real sea duty, I was assigned to the U.S.S. Proteus (AS-19). I had the privilege of serving under two Captains there and the difference between the two was like night and day. One was a real leader and the other was a 'perfumed prince'. I cheered you on when you went after Admiral Boorda for wearing some awards he...
