"Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism." --George Washington

It's no surprise that John Kerry has devoted so much time and energy questioning George W. Bush's record as commander-in-chief. Nor is it any surprise that he recently launched a campaign calling on Secretary of Defense Don Rumsfeld to resign after a handful of military personnel humiliated al-Qa'ida terrorists in Abu Ghraib prison while attempting to obtain actionable intelligence about their plans to kill more of our troops.


These political attacks are just the latest round on Kerry's long list of black-bag antics designed to undermine America's military strength and resolve.

Kerry, who fancies himself a war hero, has spent much of his political career denigrating American military personnel and the nation they defend. But his anti-American actions preceded his first campaign for Congress -- indeed, they were the platform from which he launched his political career.

Like his comrade "Hanoi Jane" Fonda and so many other Leftist protagonists from the Age of Aquarius, Kerry was a child of wealth and privilege. Today, he is the wealthiest member of Congress (the "F" stands for "Forbes," after all) but don't expect that to be a central theme of his "man of the people" campaign. (In fact, the top five wealthiest Senators are all Democrats.)

Kerry grew up hobnobbing with the Massachusetts Cape glitterati, a life of leisure including all the accoutrements -- the best schools, the best vacation homes, the best yachts, etc. He socialized with the rich and famous, especially the Kennedy clan elites, where he was taken under the wing of his future patron saint, Teddy. He attempted to emulate John Kennedy's PT-109 heroics by joining the Navy and using his connections to obtain an assignment for a short tour on a swiftboat in Vietnam. Kerry then went on to collect three Purple Hearts in just two months -- all of dubious merit, but requisite for a ticket home to pursue his political aspirations.

Unlike John F. Kennedy, however, when John F. Kerry got home, there was no hero's welcome. The nation was in turmoil over our continued role in Vietnam, the result of limited but well-publicized Leftist protests against the war. So Kerry, ever the opportunist, endeavored to become the Left's most "useful idiot" (as Lenin called Western apologists for Soviet propaganda), collaborating with Fonda, et al., and leading protests accusing his "brethren" in Vietnam of all manner of atrocities.

Kerry was (and remains) an effective spokesperson for his Leftist cadre. His anti-war protest period culminated with his 1971 congressional testimony, after which he told the press, "There are all kinds of atrocities and I would have to say that, yes, yes, I committed the same kind of atrocities as thousands of other soldiers have committed in that I took part in shootings in free-fire zones. I conducted harassment and interdiction fire. I used 50-caliber machine guns, which we were granted and ordered to use, which were our only weapon against people. I took part in search-and-destroy missions, in the burning of villages. All of this is contrary to the laws of warfare. All of this is contrary to the Geneva Conventions...."

Regarding the substance -- and source -- of Kerry's claims, Ion Mihai Pacepa, the highest-ranking intelligence officer ever to defect from the Soviet bloc, says "KGB priority number one at that time was to damage American power, judgment, and credibility. ... As a spy chief and a general in the former Soviet satellite of Romania, I produced the very same vitriol Kerry repeated to the U.S. Congress almost word for word and planted it in leftist movements. KGB chairman Yuri Andropov managed our anti-Vietnam War operation. He often bragged about having damaged the U.S. foreign-policy consensus, poisoned domestic debate in the U.S., and built a credibility gap between America and European public opinion through our disinformation operations. Vietnam was, he once told me, 'our most significant success'."

As for the success of Kerry's anti-democracy protests and his leadership of the VVAW and association with Fonda's Winter Soldier Investigation, General Vo Nguyen Giap, Vietnam's most decorated military leader, wrote in retrospect that if not for the disunity created by such stateside protesters, Hanoi would have ultimately surrendered.

But the consequences of Kerry's actions should not stop with the fall of Saigon.

Kerry, by his own account, violated the UCMJ, the Geneva Conventions and the U.S. Code while serving as a Navy officer, and he further stands in violation of Article three, Section three of the U.S. Constitution.

Upon entering the Navy in 1966, John Kerry signed a six-year contract (plus a six-month extension during wartime) and an Officer Candidate contract for five years of active duty and active Naval Reserve. This indicates that Kerry was clearly a commissioned officer at the time of his 1970 meeting with NVA Communists in Paris -- in direct violation of the UCMJ's Article 104 part 904, and U.S. Code 18 U.S.C. 953. That meeting, and Kerry's subsequent coddling of Communists while leading mass protests against our military in the year that followed, also place him in direct violation of our Constitution's Article three, Section three, which defines treason as "giving aid and comfort" to the enemy in time of warfare. (As General Vo Nguyen Giap is his witness....)

Thus, we refer our readers to the Constitution's Fourteenth Amendment, Section 3, which states, "No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President ... having previously taken an oath ... to support the Constitution of the United States, [who has] engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof."

It is for this reason -- for his record of giving aid and comfort to the enemy while a member of the U.S. Armed Forces in violation of his oath -- that we insist John Kerry resign his seat in the U.S. Senate. He has dishonored his family, dishonored his state and dishonored our nation. He is not fit for public office at any level of government, much less, the highest office in the land. John Kerry should resign.

And Bush isn't from a family of wealth and fame? Sounds a little one sided to me. Watch the little clip Weimer posted a few days back. What pisses me is all the Republicans say that Kerry is slinging mud when he himself is dirty. I think it's the same on both sides. Personally Bush appears to be just as much at fault for mudslinging as Kerry. Neither one has a squeaky clean record so we will have to pick the lesser of the two evils. Bush avoided the draft, Kerry fought in the war. But Kerry did what he was ordered to do. If he didn't follow orders he would have been out. Besides that...it was 30+ years ago. What the hell was George doing then himself.

everyone seems to forget so fast. Both candidates have their high points and their low points. Personally i don't think that the war was a really bad move, maybe miss planned and poorly executed once we declared it was over but not a terrible move. Bush has horrible speaking skills and looks like a moron half the time because of his lack of social grace and speaking ability. Kerry can't make up his own mind because he is to worried about upsetting people or looking bad(He still looks like and idiot) after all Kerry says I'm for the war I'm against the war. Well which one is it. He a fair weather fan.
As for my opening statement George didn't dodge the draft per-say he did avoid it, but that never stopped the public from caring after all we did elect Clinton didn't we. Clinton didn't just avoid the draft, he literally dodged it (moved to Canada I believe), but that fact is to convient to forget. So now we have a guy who avoided the war conviently, and we have a guy who some how got three medals and left the war after only part of a tour, then protested the war and met with officials from the other side.

(By the way for those of you who need a little refresher in history Draft dodgers were pardoned by the president after the war was over. That means that they were no longer considered crimonals, but that doesn't me the public forgets who they were.) :spank:

Why don't i just go a little further after all GW got a DWI but Kerry is a lier and while in office has accomplished nothing he votes against bills he voted for in the first place

THESE CHOICES JUST LOOK SO GOOD.

We can't just look at the surface issues and the mud flinging or else we don't vote for the right choices we vote for who we are led to believe is the right choice(It's called brain washing)

I already know who I'm voting for but that is my choice as it is everyone Elise's choice to vote for the candidate that they think won't F***up the country. By the way elections are held in private booths for a reason your vote is just that your vote, why try and tell me who you want, I don't care. That's why the candidate needs a majority. Your vote matters but it's not going to change how i vote.

I found and article in GQ magazine about bush's guard record. Supposedly they did a 8 month investigation and found out that there are still sealed military records of bush being in an elite force that dealt with espinoge (not sure how you spell it) during the war. It was about a 6 page article about his duties and that it is still a super secret deal and that is why no one wants to discuss his whereabouts. The article said that they would like to throw that in kerry's face but cannot. Also it says that george jr really gave influence to getting his dad in office not the other way around. Pretty good article. BUSH in 04 and Guliani in 08.
