Letter: Kerry giving us what we expect

Is this the same John Kerry who called GIs in the Vietnam War criminals, and GIs in Iraq terrorists?

Is this the same guy who said if you don't go to college you end up in Iraq?

Is this now the same guy who has a use for the military in a civil war in Syria? What hypocrisy! But then what do we expect from this administration?

"all with D after their elected title"

True. But if you look in left-leaning newspapers, most of the left leaning newscasts or websites, you will rarely see the "D" in the report. So many people would never be aware of it.

LOL

Yes, its the same John Kerry who served multi-tours of Vietnam while his presidential opponent was AWOL in Alabama.

"...liars and disinformation specialists are all righties." (Operative word here is ALL, therefore no Dem has ever lied.)

Oh I love it when either side speaks in absolutes...which can be so easily dis-proven.

Short list (recent and higher profile) from the Left...Jackson Jr (Il), Blagovitch Il), Edwards (LA), Wilkerson (MA), Siegelman (AL) all with D after their elected title.

The list goes on and on....on BOTH sides.

Ms Athens

“BM:… That Ian Mihal Pacepa, author of 'Disinformation', is a right wing loon, will surprise Pacepa,…”

I don’t know why, he toes the loon line and puts out the usual loon trash. Which you buy into – that is so sad.

“The KGB's #1 priority - damage American power, judgment and credibility by fabricating pictures and news reports about invented American atrocities in Vietnam.”

Nope, totally wrong – the KGB had many priorities much higher than that. And you do know one of the CIA’s priorities was to damage Soviet power, judgment and credibility by … well, you get the point.

“Kerry was never held accountable for his lying testimony.”

As I pointed out previously Kerry did not lie – he simply quoted the testimony given by combat veterans. Why do you dislike the truth so much?

“You're confusing him with a liberal.”

No, ma’am liars and disinformation specialists are all righties.

BM: 200WC

That Ian Mihal Pacepa, author of "Disinformation", is a right wing loon, will surprise Pacepa, a spy chief and general in the then Romania, worked with KGB Chairman Yuri Adropov in the disinformation operations.

The KGB's #1 priority - damage American power, judgment and credibility by fabricating pictures and news reports about invented American atrocities in Vietnam. Distributed by KGB operated magazines to reputable news organizations, most never bothered to verify sources. Neither did Kerry, whose testimony was often word for word, the KGB disinformation words. He once stated he observed the atrocities first hand. This turned out to be a lie.


You may recall the Stockholm Conference? Anti-American propaganda, protests, demonstrations, boycotts were pushed...all staffed by soviet-bloc undercover intelligence officers, funded by the Communist Party. In pushing world Communism, in fact, the KGB's big push was printing incriminating documents (lies) about American soldiers atrocities, distributing them in Europe and America. They were behind the anti-war movement in fact. Even behind "Ban the Bomb" also.

Kerry was never held accountable for his lying testimony. Mr Pacepa helped distribute the anti-American propaganda so that would leave him out as a right wing loon. You're confusing him with a liberal.

Lets see... I don't have anything factual and substantive to add to this conversation so I'll claim that there is all this hate in comments I don't agree with. Better throw in the phrases righties and Tea Party too.
There, that will show them.

""Well, not now of course because he is no longer a Senator. "

Thanks for proving my point. Much appreciated."

Yes, since "Lurch" is no longer a Senator, we can simply regard him as being the Catsup heiress's paid for and kept "boy toy".

I wonder if he is going to have problems at home, now that he has also made himself Vladamir Putins b**** as well.

LOL

I agree completely Pat. It is a mystery why people cannot see through this administration and it's minions.
The unrestricted love and defense of this administration no matter what they have done or continue to do, is only surpassed by their unmitigated hatred (not a very nice trait for anyone) of anyone associated with the Bush Administration or Republican Party in general, grows tiresome.
While many Republicans can/'t accept the election of Obama, these haters of anything Republican can't get over the fact that Bush was elected twice and is not President anymore and move on. Any complaints about Obama are just rebutted with complaints about Bush.

"Not even in the top 10, but I am sure you already knew that, didn't you?"

When he was still a senator, he was listed as #3 richest at 197.3 million. He married the the catsup heiress and her money is his money.

Source? rollcall (dot) com article on 08/13/13

And:

"With a net worth of at least $290 million, Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas) is the wealthiest member of Congress, followed by Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), with $199 million, in second place."

Source? HuffPo article on 08/21/12

He certainly was in the top ten, chuckles. But you already knew that, didn't you? Unless you want to confess and admit you did not even bother to check to find out, like I did.

The only error Capt. Nice made was giving the impression that "Lurch" is still a Senator. Be sure to jump on that as your lame CYA move.

LOL

Capt Nice:

After writing about Theresa Heinz's wealth, I remember from long ago, she actually married into the Heinz wealth (Senator H John Heinz III) with whom she had three children. He died in an air crash, leaving her extremely wealthy.

She's interesting, born Maria Teresa Thierstein Simoes-Ferreira in Mozambique, she is Portuguese, is Roman Catholic, was registered Republican until Kerry ran for office.

Schooled in languages in Johannesburg, she came to the UN as an interpreter, met John Kerry at an Earth Day rally pre husbands death, afterwards again met Kerry at the earth summit in Rio, later married him.

She seems very nice, speaks five languages fluently, was a Portuguese businesswoman pre Kerry days.

I do recall that yacht of Kerry's. Did he not go sailing while Benghazi was burning? I believe I read that.

BM: I gave you all the information you need. There is an entire BOOK on it called Disinformation. Feel free to buy it and read it. The KGB's only way to have America lose in Vietnam was a disinformation campaign to make Americans go against their own country.

It worked well. Did you consider soldiers still in captivity when you joined Mr. Kerry. Everything he stated (ALL AVAILABLE IN HIS OWN WORDS RIGHT HERE ON THE NET) has been proven to be lies, right out of the KGB's plan.

I can't do much more for you in 200 words or less. At some point, you and your other self needs to do a little research on your own. Takes about two minutes for Kerry's testimonies....all filmed...all available...all lies.

You will find pics of he and Jane Fonda, pics of him in moccasins, mucho hair on his head, demonstrating. He said he was throwing his medals away, others did, again he lied and did not. As I said, on his wall in his office.

Capt Nice.

Kerry made his multiple millions by marrying Theresa Heinz, heir to the capsup family fortune. She's opulently wealthy.

Pat :

I do see your point.

But then the trolling Muslim haters and Selfish anti-COMPASSION people came and obliterated your entire message!

WHY do they always have to bring their hate into EVERY STORY?? Sorry about that!!

The Tea Party is the worst thing to ever happen to this country.

Because of them, we no longer can even have a civil conversation anymore. Sad.

I have been doing research on John Kerry and other than being at the feed trough of the American taxpayer and being a gigolo I have yet to find out where he earned the millions one writer claimed he did.
It is quite eye opener researching this Jane Fonda wantabe as he is accused of altering his face which actually looks worse...but he denies it.
His actual four months he spent in combat in Vietnam was a joke and somehow he was awarded some medals that some say he made up the actions to get them and then threw them away to make the anti-war people love him.
and to the jerk who said he did not call the American servicemen war criminals in Iraq had better go back and do some research and get his head out of his ideologies behind~

“He was a Navy Lt in Vietnam in 1968/69. He did us great harm later.”

What harm? Please be specific.

What Kerry did was return from combat as a wounded veteran with the knowledge that what we were doing in Vietnam was wrong. It was WRONG.

As a combat veteran myself, I too returned wounded and disillusioned as to what we were doing there. I too joined the VVAW and protested our involvement and like to think that my actions, along with those of John Kerry and thousands of others, helped wake up the American people that what we were doing was so very wrong.

And I would like to see some definitive evidence of your hyperbolic nonsense that John Kerry was acting at the behest of the KBG. Where do you come up with this trash?

“BM: You aren't responding to Kerry's April, 1971 testimony or obama's Muslim Brotherhood connected appointments to places like Homeland Security?”

Yes I did, you just didn’t bother to read it. And as I said he was quoting comments made by combat veterans.

You unmitigated hatred (not a very Christian trait) of anyone associated with the Obama Administration grows tiresome.

BM: You aren't responding to Kerry's April, 1971 testimony or obama's Muslim Brotherhood connected appointments to places like Homeland Security? He said our soldiers cut off ears/limbs/heads, shocked genitals, poisoned village foodstuffs, shot their cattle and dogs for fun, raped women, pillaged villages in the manner of Ghengis Khan, randomly shot people....someone died daily to keep Nixon from having to face losing a war.

Sort of fits today and Syria, doesn't it? All to save face for obama's red line remark? Kerry back then and Kerry today are two different people. While against the Vietnam war, he now pushes the Syrian debacle which ironically, is being now led by another Russian, Putin who has blown obama away.

In Kerry's long testimony, he echoed KGB disinformation, brainchild of then longtime KGB chief Yuri Andropov as told by Lt Gen Ion Miahi Pacepa who worked face to face with Andropov before defecting.

Pacepa has written a new book "Deception", about that disinformation campaign.

"Muslim Brotherhood in the Obama Administration: But seven - there are many more. Someday Americans will wake up. Or maybe not. If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck...possibly, it is a duck. ALL of these are Muslim Brotherhood connected. Huma's parents founded MB and MSisterhood. "

You really need to step away from the chain emails. A man who is born in 1928 cannot found a group that was founded in 1928.

From Wikipedia, bobby's favorite Apr 22, 1971, large group of vets demonstrated on Supreme Court steps, demanding why court hadn't ruled on constitutionality of Vietnam war...Veterans sang "God Bless America", 110 arrested for disturbing the peace.

JOHN KERRY , AS VVAW SPOKESMAN (Vietnam Veterans Against the War) testified against the war for 2 hours in front of Senate Foreign Relations Committee before a packed room of observers and media....veterans continued lobbying on Capitol Hill all day. A DC District Court judge angrily dissolved his injunction order, rebuking the Justice Department lawyers for requesting the court order, then not enforcing it. Veterans staged candlelight march around the White House while huge American flag was carried UPSIDE DOWN in the historic international signal of distress.

On Friday, April 23, more than 800 veterans, one by one, tossed their medals, ribbons, discharge papers and other war mementos on the steps of the Capitol, rejecting the Vietnam war and the significance of those awards.

Several hearings in Congress were held that week regarding atrocities committed in Vietnam and the media's inaccurate coverage of the war. (Kerry testified, using KGB Propaganda- all verified as lies)

Muslim Brotherhood in the Obama Administration: But seven - there are many more. Someday Americans will wake up. Or maybe not. If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck...possibly, it is a duck. ALL of these are Muslim Brotherhood connected. Huma's parents founded MB and MSisterhood.

Arif Alikhan – Assistant Secretary for Policy Development for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. (great post for a Muslim Brotherhood operative, don't you agree?)

Mohammed Elibiary – Homeland Security Adviser. (Again, GREAT placement - if you are pro muslim POTUS wanting to destroy America)

Rashad Hussain – Special Envoy to the (OIC) Organization of the Islamic Conference.

Salam al-Marayati – Obama Adviser, founder of Muslim Public Affairs Council and its current executive director. (Ah yes, Obama Adviser)

Imam Mohamed Magid – Obama’s Sharia Czar, Islamic Society of North America. (And we certainly need a Sharia Czar!!)

Eboo Patel – Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships (Helps get the mosques in the neighborhoods!)

Huma Abedin - Was Hillary Clinton's Sr Aide, with her 20 years, as Secy of State, Aide Huma had access to our top secrets.

"Not even in the top 10..."

Well, not now of course because he is no longer a Senator. According to several sources "Kerry has been a mainstay on Roll Call's list of the wealthiest in Congress for more than 15 years". This was from their 2012 list where he was #2, but I doubt they've gotten any poorer since then. Of course some of that is due to his wifes assets, but much is his personally and jointly owned. If you drop hers completely, looks like he'd still be at about $100M which would keep him in the top 5.

Whos chuckling now?

“Notice the words in the first paragraph, bobby, ‘testified to war crimes’…”

Notice the actual words instead of a foolishly truncated version, “…several months ago in Detroit, we had an investigation at which over 150 honorably discharged and many very highly decorated veterans testified to war crimes committed in Southeast Asia,....."

What I see is Kerry reporting on an investigation, which alters the original statement, “Is this the same John Kerry who called GIs in the Vietnam War criminals….” Kerry was not calling GI’s war criminals, but reporting on GI’s who admitted to committing war crimes.

Fox Hound: Not Fox News, sorry to disappoint. What Fox show would that be on anyway?

All of Kerry's lying testimony as the head of Vietnam Veterans Against the War is right here on the internet. Stick the words in a search engine, you can pull up You Tube videos and others of him in front of the Sen Fulbright Foreign Relations Committee in 1971, telling atrocious lies that soldiers committed - all proven to be KGB propaganda.

You can also find pictures of him demonstrating with his big fat hair and moccasins, pictures of he and Jane Fonda together, the person he originally got the ideas from besides the KGB.

He was a Navy Lt in Vietnam in 1968/69. He did us great harm later. Now he is Secy of State trying to get us in a civil war in Syria where both sides are bad.

The difference between the two would be what? Boy, you and Bob Moore really know your history? Hahahaha!! Must be those new history books you are reading. Me, I watched his testimony in 1971 in real time....while I ironed all my little babes clothes. Not everyday you hear that many lies.
