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 during the war

In my used-to-be-America someone like Kerry
would have been in Levenworth for the past 40 years.

Most of the media and the senate (Democrats and Republicans) actually think this gigolo toad was indeed a war hero.....or they´re too lazy,indoctrinated,stupid,or fearful to consider the truth. He´ll be confirmed with little opposition. What a disgrace.

The Senate is the Good Ole Boy network..they will ALL be tripping over themselves to vote yes.
And so continues the rot of a once great America.
We are now the serfs doing the bidding of the masters.

Will the usual suspects allow the Swiftees into the hearing room to protest.

After all, Code Pinko always manages to disrupt hearings.

A John Kerry as Secretary of State is what America gets from a United States Senate presently comprised of 75% with no prior military service.

It´s different this time, the Swift Boat Veterans should only fight battles that they can win. They won the last time when Kerry was the liberal Democrat candidate for President. But this time they will be trying to influence a very different animal, weak kneed wimpy Republican Senators, many just pleased as punch to go along to get along with their good friends across the aisle, who will vote for Kerry no matter what because Kerry is a member of their Senate club. The Swift Boat Veterans should not waste their ammunition.

The Senate - now there´s a body of old turnips who wouldn´t know one end of a gun barrel from another. How many of them have spent a lifetime or more keeping their seats warm and dissing the rest of the country? if ever there was a case for term limits - two and out. Twelve years is plenty long enough to feed at the country´s trough.

In the end, Kerry brought about his own loss in 2004. He campaigned with celebrities who spoke for him, while mostly standing silent, like he did with president zero at the appointment announcement. He also paid his band of brothers to travel with him, and that became artificial pretty quickly.
In short, he ran a lousy campaign. But the Swiftboat guys made a contribution to his defeat.

This article is 10 days old. Not sure why it´s in the must reads today. That being said...

"... most conservative senators are more concerned with preventing U.S. Amb. Susan Rice from ascending to the top spot..."

What´s worse, lying to the nation about a video or lying to the nation about one´s fellow troops committing war crimes and negotiating with the enemy with no authority to do so? When do we get to call it TREASON?

I hope the Swifties eviscerate Kerry.

Wait until he´s Sec-O-Something before scuttling his dinghy. Pretty much an easy way to excise him from the Senator For Life gig.

SecOState ?
I´m for having this admin offending EVERYONE on the planet as much as possible.
He´s a good candidate for that.

SecDef ?
Probably on par with Loony Pancetta in term of the amount of damage he can do.
We can fix that later.

Posters 8 & 9 forget that we Americans will be united behind the Swifties. They will not be fighting this battle alone. If the cowards of the Senate are faced with enough constituent opposition, they will cave and veto.

Hope the Swift Boat Veterans expose the fraud that is Gigolo John Kerry and the RINOs who vote for him.
Treason is not a qualification for SOS.
For those who calculate that Scott brown may get in - this is Mass.
Watch for the idiots vote in another kennedynmor some such ilk.
Expose him and Bork him- the Dem bench is Marxists, liars and frauds- the kakistocracy on display.

Unfortunately this country is past the point where enough people care. These days people only care when it affects them directly, and that will not happen, as Kerry will do his damage overseas in many places that most people cannot even find on a map.

University of East London bans segregated
Muslim event from its premises
Telegraph [UK], by Damian Thompson    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 4/17/2014 8:58:27 AM     Post Reply
I blogged yesterday about this "segregated" Muslim event organised by the Islamic Society of the University of East London, due to happen tonight at UEL´s main lecture theatre on its Docklands campus. Much to my surprise, UEL immediately banned it from their campus. [Snip] UEL should be congratulated over this. As I pointed out, it has an "equality and diversity" policy. It didn´t know that the dinner organised by the Islamic society--which was to include a speech by the controversial anti-gay preacher Murtaza Khan--was segregated by sex and was providing a platform for an extremist. The university´s decision to pull the

Tony Blair´s religious charity has links to an Islamic extremist group being investigated by MI5 and MI6, it has been alleged. [Snip] The organisation has been declared a terrorist group in Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and could be banned in Britain, despite insisting they do not have links to extremist factions. The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch, which has been looking into the group for 13 years, revealed that Dr Ismail Khudr Al-Shatti, an adviser to the Kuwaiti government and a member of Mr Blair’s advisory council, is a leading member of the Kuwaiti branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. the

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

Why are the US authorities trying to extradite and imprison arguably the one man in the world with the skills and influence to bring peace, stability, and prosperity to fractured Ukraine? This week I flew to Vienna, Austria, to find out in a world exclusive interview with Ukraine´s Dmitry Firtash, the billionaire industrialist, philanthropist, and political fixer who is striving desperately to help his country forge an independent future free from the bullying of Russia and the meddling of the West in next month´s scheduled elections. And his biggest obstacle? According to Firtash, it´s Barack Obama.

The Internal Revenue Service is considering a bold move to label perks like free lunch given to workers by companies as taxable. The agency wonders if freebies like haircuts and gym memberships are a way to compensate the highly skilled rather than just a way to jumpstart productivity. After all, argue proponents of such a tax, workers at Silicon Valley firms like Google and Facebook receive free meals from famously fancy in-house eateries every day. Some companies even go a step further by offering freebies like haircuts, car services, and child care. Typical workaday folks can expect to pay for all

Remember Lovebug? This was the computer virus that swept through a young and fresh-faced internet in May 2000. Back then we were told it would do to cyberspace what the Black Death had done to Europe in the 14th century. We all got funny emails with “ILOVEYOU” attachments and when we tried to open them our computers exploded. Or rather they didn’t, though you wouldn’t have known that from the hysteria. Then along came MyDoom, Netsky, Witty and Melissa and, now, the deliciously named Heartbleed bug, which the US security expert Bruce Schneier has described as “catastrophic” and which has

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in.

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
