It is now official. Last week, President Obama nominated John Kerry to succeed Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, saying Kerry’s ”entire life has prepared him for this role.” He further contended that Kerry’s service as a Vietnam veteran taught him the “responsibility to use American power wisely, especially our military power.” That assessment may come as a shock to the thousands of Vietnam veterans whose reputations Kerry trashed in order to advance his own radical political agenda.
Remarkably, outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, unable to attend the nominating ceremony due to her continuing effort to dodge testimony regarding the Benghazi debacle, viewed that trashing as an asset. “John Kerry has been tested–in war, in government, and in diplomacy. Time and again, he has proven his mettle,” said a written statement released by Clinton. “I remember watching young Lieutenant Kerry’s testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee many years ago and thinking that I had just seen a man of uncommon courage and conscience.”
This is a particularly callous and stinging statement from Clinton. Many Americans are aware of John Kerry’s infamous abuse of his fellow soldiers during the “Winter Soldier Investigations,” when he appeared before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in 1971 as a representative of Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW) and made the following statement:
They told the stories at times they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam in addition to the normal ravage of war, and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country.
Kerry contended that these atrocities were committed ”on a day-to-day basis with the full awareness of officers at all levels of command.”
If the country doesn't care enough to put a clown like Obama in office, and stand for Clinton to be appointed SOS, I'd say they deserve an idiot like Kerry!
You dont expect obummer to pick anyone that actually patriotic do you. Big deal he was in a war but ratted out all his brothers so he could climb up the greed ladder and be with all the other liberals and liars. We need to take this country back and Im stockin up on ammo and weapons. The next revolution may be here sooner than I thought. Its comin brothers!!!!
Kertry was a great pal of the Kennedy's (Ted in particular) and was a sailing buddy of the Kennedy Clan. Ted got Kerry his Silver Star and 3 Purple Hearts, and Hero Status to pave the way for Kerry's Democratic Party carreer once he became a civilian. Teddy Kennedy gave much information to the Soviets (KGB) on how to bring the War to a successful (Communist) conclusion and had much to do with the Anti-War activity here at home. In other words Ted Kennedy was just as much a Communist Traitor to the USA as Kerry was (and still is.) The Kerry familiy even changed their name to "KERRY" to appeal to the Bostion Irish simply for a future in Boston Politics,
kerry fits right in with the anti american obama regime. You can be sure as a result our enimies within and without will get stronger and america will get weaker with this commie freak by design.
IT'S TIME TO TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK!
Kerry's past conduct at Winter Soldier in Detroit and his 1971 testimony to Congress, was given a free pass until 2004. The Swift Boat Vets and volunteers did an excellent (I am extremely proud to have been one of those volunteers) job of researching and verifying everything that was put forward regarding Kerry's service. If it was down on paper, in video, audio or otherwise everybody involved worked their butts off to make sure every "t" was crossed and the " i's" were dotted. Kerry has never allowed access to his service records, he knows what we learned and knew about his trips to France and meetings with North Vietnam and VC. Those two sites I linked to, are solely for you to visit and refresh, or if you don't know a thing about it, gain knowledge of John Kerry's past actions.
What in hell was McCain thinking, supporting this Communist for Secretary of State?
Hasn't he already done enough damage, losing to Obama in the first place?
why don't you belive it McCain is a "progressive" just like the rest of them he is no tea Party member he is just barely a republican.
It is typical of King Obama to let someone like Kerry be sec. of state I am vietnam era and John Kerry was a bad joke then just as he is now.
War is a bitch Jerry, I was there too and sometimes collatoral damage took it's toll on civilians. That's been happening since mankind learned how to kill each other.Mistakes happen. But if you killed civilians who were non-combatants for the pleasure of it, you wouldn't have lasted a second in my platoon. I would have shot you myself.
TRAITOR BASTARD !!!!!! Is what he is and will always be.
Kerry aided and abetted the enemy during a time of armed conflict and should have been a reason they put him against the wall and SHOT him then !!!! (Along with Jane Fonda, Tom Hayden and the rest of the Communist Cheer Leaders here in the USA !!!!)
We have truly become a MARXIST NAtION when we forget the past and reward the enemy with jobs in our Government. It began a long time ago and now Obama as the President, Hillary (Benghazi) Clinton (outgoing Sec. of State) replaced by "TRAITOR KERRY" is just about as bad a thing this old Vietnam Veteran can tolerate.
Allowing Kerry to wheel and deal his way with his Marxist ideas along with Obama is merely surrendering our sovereignty to the "Communist United Nations". I thought we were made of sterner stuff. I'm sorry I'm living long enough to see I was wrong. "GOD BLESS AMERICA........ The way it was" !!!!
Bendict Arnold was one of the Greatest War Heroes of America, and one of its finest Generals. He became a Traitor. George Washington was personally crushed by Arnold's treachery.
It is The People of Massachusettes who are responsible for the continued Insult that is John Kerry. The same as it is The People of New York who are responsible for the continued Insult that is Hillary Clinton - a criminal as far back as Arkansas.
It is time to hold The Voters of these States (and others) accountable BY NAME.
A 'War between the States' has existed since at least the 1960s. The Red/Blue Map is proof.
It can be done on the Floors of the House and Senate by OUR Representatives.
Socialism is at War with and attacking Democratic Capitalism. It is time the Enemy is identified BY NAME.
