Will Swift Boat Veterans
reunite to protest a
Kerry nomination?

Human Events, by Hope Hodge

In popular wisdom, one-time presidential runner-up Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) is likely to be nominated by President Barack Obama for Secretary of Defense or Secretary of State. But if Kerry does get the nod, a group credited with helping to thwart his presidential bid could re-organize to take him down once again. The Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, a group formed of military veterans who served alongside Kerry, worked to bring attention to the senator’s anti-war activities following his military service and to raise doubts about the truth of Kerry’s own accounts of his conduct

The Swift boat veterans were not about politics but truth. One would think men that value honor above base politics would be willing to address Jon Carey´s past and immune to the usual Kneepad media´s vitriol.

Thank goodness for the Swift Boat Vets...they just don´t give up. What a great bunch of guys. To say they don´t think much of John Kerry would be an understatement.

Oh! John, we are still waiting to see that DD 201 File you promised to show us. Do you have it yet?

So tell me people, who would you rather see Obama use a SoS?

He is a far cry better than Susan Rice.

Also it would get Lurch out of the Senate. That might be useful. There can´t be too many more candidates like Elizabeth Warren to fill the spot.

US foreign policy is going to be bad with Obama regardless. Kerry at least doesn´t shot his mouth off.

Kerry doesn´t shoot his mouth off? What about if you don´t go to college, you wind up "stuck in Iraq?" What about his false testimony about soldiers performing atrocities "reminiscent of ´Jenjis´ Khan?" I don´t care if it was a long time ago; he never disavowed that testimony.

There´s a lot to not like about Kerry but compared to the average thugs Obama has in his network,Kerry seems reasonable. I think the swift vets were against Kerry for the Pentagon,not sure about SoS but I have a suspicion he´ll sail through anyway.

John Kerry is a disgrace to both the Senate and if it were possible Massachusetts. IMHO anyone who believes he will be "better" than Clinton doesn´t know Kerry´s record. He testified before Congress about Vietnam, with lies about "winter soldier", making life even more miserable for POW´s and OUR Military while he polished his THREE Purple Hearts for a total of less than 10 weeks in Vietnam. He should have been tried AS a traitor. That´s who Kerry is. He is certainly NOT simply a harmless dunce residing in a mansion paid for by his wife´s long-dead Republican husband. He would be a danger to this Country. Good Grief!

In the world of ´real politik´ this is probably a done deal. The Senate won´t object to Mr. Kerry´s lies for he is a member of the club. I wish the Swiftee´s all the good fortune available this Christmas Season, but the only impediment to Mr. Kerry is the Senate, and we know what their ethics are like.

"Gigolo traitor" sums it up nicely. The people of Massachusetts should be ashamed of themselves for thrusting this weasel on the American people. I hope the swifties run thousands of ads with video clips of his testimony and throwing his medals. Throw in a few hanoi jane photos for association. Too many voters are not old enough to remember those times.

These past few days have been kind of like a Class Reunion:
first, Ms. Clinton´s hair story got all the fun nicknames going again- PIAPS, PETUIATE, Monica´s Boyfriends´ Wife, Cankles, etc., etc.
-now today, with the Susan Rice withdrawal, we get to hear all the vintage Kerry stuff- Jenjhis John, Monsewer Jean-Fraud Cair-ree, Lurch, Horseface, etc.
Kind of relieves the post -election funk, putting the old sportsman back in a good mood.
Looking forward to getting back in the fray.
First to last, a chance to gloat is all we ask.

As a proud Vietnam vet (survivor), I´ll contribute (again) to any Swiftboat campaign. Kerry is lying traitor and sefl-aggrandizing SOB. He was no ´hero´ but all pretense. I know of no other junior officer who took a movie camera to ´Nam to film his "exploits." Those of us who were smeared by his libels also know that the only guys who got to leave before their year was up were either very seriously wounded, or in a transfer case with a toe tag. Dishonest and a phony, Kerry would make a terrible representative for our nation to the world.

If you want The Haughty, French-Looking John Kerry to get bloodied during his confirmation as Sec State, you´ll need to look outside his buddies in the Senate for it.
McCain and Graham will roll over and show their bellies immediately. So the Swifties are the ONLY group that will provide insight and ask questions about this "90 day Wonder" and his shameful, self-promoting, yet cowardly performance as a "soldier".

Given the dims´ bench you always have to ask yourself which of the evils is Mr. or Ms. Lesser. With Rice vs. Kerry: which do you prefer, a liar or a traitor? The choices are likely to be so appalling that people will begin to miss the PIAPS.

I, for one, will never forget nor forgive the horse-faced, gigolo, wannabe elitist who put himself in for numerous fictitious awards and then utilized them to "game" his Vietnam Tour from 12 months down to 3.

As if that were not enough to never be allowed to show his face again in this country, he opportunistically joined Jane Fonda and the "Vietnam Vets Against The WAR" to falsely claim before Congress that American troops were raping, murdering, looting, etc. to ingratiate himself with the scum who he then embraced as his political base.
When the Officers with whom he briefly served in Vietnam rose up as a group to denounce Kerry as "Unfit to Command," the media bent over backwards to denounce them as "Swift boating" and as being without merit.
Thank God for those Swift Boat leaders! Without them Kerry and his partner, the now disgraced John Edwards, would have very likely been elected.
Count me among those who will shout from the roof top that John Kerry is a Knave and a Fool!

Only difference I can see between Rice and Kerry, is that Kerry has learned the subtle art of the quiet backstab as opposed to Rice and her ´flipping the bird´ out in the open. I am convinced that when Kerry and McCain went to VN back in the middle 90´s they nailed the coffin shut on finding out if there are any more of our pow´s still there.

John Kerry is an unjailed traitor to this country. If the voters of MA are too ignorant to not see through him, that is their problem, not mine. I am all for the Swift Boaters taking this guy on again.

that is for like minded veterans and Americans who are appalled at the idea of this TRAITOR getting ANY further that being "elected" by fools in Mass. I´m sure that this is just one of many site dedicated to keeping this TRAITOR out.

There is no one in the Democrat stable that is honest or trustworthy. Not one. So in the long run it doesn´t make any difference who Obama nominates. They are all Communists and this is exactly what has been planned for decades. Will the Swift Boaters show up for this fight? I certainly hope so. One of our friends who fought in Nam is pretty discouraged at every thing that has happened. He said he fought the Commies in Nam when he was young, but he never thought he would have to still be fighting them at age 70. Yeah, me either, but it is what it is. They´re here and now they are clear and it´s time to stop them before it´s too late.

Democrats have a real knack for putting their most unworthy, ill-suited, damaged goods up on pedestals. Those Democrats get away with doing so primarily because their loyal, lapdog media enthusiastically morph into their corrupt “invent, omit and distort” modes. Hence John Kerry, Barack Obama and the most popular, beloved, idolized Democrat of all… Bill “Kiss it!” Clinton.

How fortunate we are to have the courageous Swift Boat Veterans to expose the truth about Kerry. If called upon, may they do it once again!

John Kerry doesn´t even need to be swiftboated again, his post Vietnam is disgusting enough to preclude his nomination, much less his approval.

Of course I am talking about events in the real world, I keep forgetting that we are in Obamaworld where up is down and truth is just a word!

Heard on the radio that little john mcpain supports kerry. mcpain might have served honorably in Viet Nam and been a POW, BUT, he was about the worst Republican candidate, EVER, for President. I guess he appreciates kerry so much as kerry also dumped a first wife and picked a richer trophy wife. kerry betrayed our Country, called my brother, two nephews and other U. S.ServicePersonnel,murderers,rapists,wanton killers and more while kissing up to the viet cong.

I will only hope that if the escapee from "The Adams Family" gets the nod for SecState from Odumbo that the SBVs help take him out. Kerry is nothing but a traitorous turncoat who uses people to get ahead. He used Vietnam vets to start his career in politics. Heck the only reason that this oaf is the 2nd richest member of congress is because he married 2 rich women. One of those women is a left wing pinko but whatever. If Lurch goes down in flames it will be 0-2 for the Obamanation

#61 is correct, why waste our energy on a lost cause, he´s going in, Obama had to concede on Rice, because of questioning her would have been harmful.

They own this mess. We have to mobilize and get ready to combat more election fraud for 2016. We can make sure that implementing Obamacare is a nightmare for them, since that´s going through as well

Atlanta Braves flooded with Hank
Aaron hate mail: He’s a ‘s*****g’

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

U.S. military assets in the Black Sea are on high alert amid reports Ukraine troops traded gunfire Tuesday with pro-Russian militants. A journalist with Associated Press reported intense gunfire at an airport in eastern Ukraine after the government sent in army troops to retake control from militiamen loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mayor of Kramatorsk told the Associated Press that Ukrainian troops have now occupied the military airport and are blocking its entrance. The action comes a day after the revelation a Russian fighter jetted buzzed a U.S.S. destroyer multiple times over the Black Sea.

Democrats target 30 House
Republicans on immigration

House Democrats are rolling out a new strategy to target 30 House Republicans on immigration reform during the two-week congressional recess, marking a last-ditch effort to force GOP action on a legislative overhaul. The new pressure tactic includes a memo distributed to those 30 districts held by Republicans who have expressed public support for some sort of immigration reform, many of them backing a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Democrats hope the document — which highlights statements made by those Republicans in favor of reform, as well as data showing the district-specific economic

Is Scott Walker on his way to
2016 front-runner status?
Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff    Original Article

Scott Walker has a 16 point lead (56-40) among likely voters in his race for governor, according to a poll from Wisconsin Public Radio/St. Norbert’s. Among registered voters, his lead is essentially the same (55-40). The survey was conducted between March 24 and April 3. A Marquette University survey conducted between March 20-23 also showed Walker with a nice, though smaller, lead. In that poll, Walker outdistanced Democrat Mary Burke 48-41. Revealingly, Walker fares well in an electorate that does not seem particularly conservative and that, if anything, appears to be slightly to the left of American voters in general.

UC Irvine Should Immediately Rescind
Its Invitation to 2014 Commencement
Speaker (and War Criminal) Barack Obama
Washington Free Beacon [DC], by Andrew Stiles    Original Article

Note: This post was inspired by the #DropDropbox campaign. On March 20 the University of California, Irvine, announced that Barack Obama will give the commence address to its class of 2014. This is deeply disturbing, and anyone—or any university—who values ethics should be concerned. Why is this? Because he was part of the failed Obama administration? Because he is a Democrat and we should hate Democrats? No. This is not an issue of partisanship. It makes sense that UC Irvine would want an accomplished, high-level, well-connected individual as their commencement speaker. There is no doubt that Barack Obama is an

When Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Steve Israel (N.Y.) was asked Sunday whether he thinks his Republican colleagues are racist, he responded with a frankness that is rare in politics and even less common when it comes to sensitive issues like race. "Not all of them, no, of course not," Israel said on CNN´s "State of the Union." "But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. And that´s unfortunate." Israel´s not the only high-ranking Democrat to advance some version of that argument recently. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that Republican reluctance

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
