Swift Boat vet: We’re ‘ready to go’
Boston Herald, by Hillary Chabot

Original Article

Posted By:John c, 11/22/2012 5:51:04 PM

The controversial Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, who helped scuttle John Kerry’s 2004 White House bid, are ready to launch torpedoes if the Bay State senator is nominated to a Cabinet post in the Obama administration, with one foe calling the whole idea an “abomination.” “We’re not too old to fight,” said Alvin Horne, a Vietnam veteran and a key member of the Swift Boat group, whose barrage of attack ads sought to discredit Kerry’s military record during the 2004 campaign. “If the commonwealth wants to send Bozo the Clown to (the) Senate they can do it

Here is a dose of reality for you people.
Harry Reid has already said that the 60 vote rule in the senate to override a veto is being changed. (I would guess he will reduce it to 51 - in a move that he and other democrats were critical of, calling it the nuclear option.)
I also believe the informal rule of allowing any senator to put a hold on a nomination will also disappear. That means President Zero will be able to nominate Jon Cary on a monday, and by the next monday, cary will be secretary of defense.
The same thing will happen with judicial appointees. Get ready for it.
We are doomed.

I´m opposed to ex-military people being put in charge of the Pentagon to begin with,it´s clearly supposed to be a civilian position. But on top of that you can´t have a rabidly anti-war person being in charge of the military,it would cloud the judgment of when we need to intervene.

John Fraud Kerreee ought to have gone to Leavenworth in 1971 for what he did in Paris. But our Republicans then had no more cajones to start that up than they do now.

And, he ought to STILL BE in prison.

We have been invaded from within. And with his nomination as SecDef, our bravest and best will likely leave their respective forces, and poseurs will be brought in to take their places. We will then have been effectively conquered from within.

I know my son won´t stay. He´s already looking elsewhere.

(P.S. #16 - FYI, this site is not Twitter. References to other posters should be as I did here, to you - by post number. It´s easier for later readers to refer back to the post you refer to. Thanks, from a later reader)

As of 2011, the black Viet Nam Wall has 58,272 names, unless more have been added during 2012.

Barry and most of the Dem Senators don´t care about the outrage Juan Fraud Cary´s nomination would invoke. They won. I´m sure they feel that the new, young voters don´t care about Viet Nam history - they care more about Sandra Fluke´s ability to have her birth control for free. Heck, these new, young voters don´t care about why the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have been fought.

If another 9/11 on our soil happens during Obozo´s reign, he´ll probably surrender our country to whomever hits us. There won´t be any retaliation a la George W. Bush. Patriotism is almost a thing of the past, no matter how red the electoral map looks.

Benedict Arnold is the perfect example of the peril of giving a prima donna authority for any military matter. He felt slighted after the battle of Saratoga, he thought he should be further up the ladder of command, and because of a personal pique and desire for revenge he sold out his country and those men under his command.

Think about it. How many connections can you see with BHO?

The Swifties are certainly not “controversial” with me. I cheered when they threw Kerry overboard, and look forward to them doing it again.

But . . .there’s a lot of talk in MA that Kerry being given a DC job is a great opportunity for Scott Brown to run again. I don’t think it’s worth his time or trouble. The chances of the MA Democrats not being able to create out of whole cloth another dipstick Dem candidate like Elizabeth Warren is 0 to none. MA Democrats would vote for the dog on Romney’s car roof if they were told to. Cripes, they would send anybody in the MA legislatures in a heart beat. Coup Deval is panting to relocate. Or Mumbles Menino can be shipped to DC, still in his hospital bed. Maybe they would get Fidel Castro to establish a two week residency here and run a campaign all in Spanish. The Dems are not going to let Scott Brown win.

Right before the end of the 2004 election, it was rumored that a defense dept type was going to reveal this traitor´s discharge status. I kept waiting, but then it didn´t matter--whatever happened with that? Also, the lsm is constantly referring to "swiftboat lies". I never heard of one lie, but they keep saying it so that makes it so....amazingly, we´ve elected a guy who hangs with terrorists, now we´re going to accept a traitor as Sec of Defense???? I´m sick.

Expect to hear requests for the SF 198.
It was promised but never signed. This would allow a peep into John F´n Kerry´s actual (rather than fictional) service record.
How do you get a Silver Star, with V for valor, issued by three different signers, for killing an unarmed teenage kid by shooting him in the back?
How do you negotiate with an enemy and escape punishment?
Oh, there are so many questions!
And so little time!

A person is in custody tonight after police report suspicious bags were found at the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Boylston Street. An eye-witness told the Herald tonight a man dressed all in black and wearing a black veil walked down the middle of Boylston Street, with a backpack on his back, chanting "Boston strong, Boston strong." "He was weird looking," said Matthew VanWinkle. "He was wearing a black veil, a black hat, and no shoes." The bomb squad is now on the scene and police have pushed everyone back. A bomb squad member yelled "fire in the hole" as they

Kyiv- A recording proving that Russia is backing separatists in eastern Ukraine has surfaced online. The SBU (Security Service of Ukraine) taped the operatives, whose code names are "Nose," "Adler," "Shooter" and "Agath," discussing strategy, weapon stockpiles, and requests for reinforcements. The SBU has identified the number calling the separatists in Ukraine as having a Russian +7 area code. The person with the Russian number asks Shooter to contact him. Later in the conversation, Shooter reports “fighting off the first (Ukrainian) attack” and shooting “some significant (highly-ranked Ukrainian) people."

Frank Armstrong never got the chance to know 8-year-old Martin Richard in this life. Nevertheless, the BPD captain in charge of Area E-18 in Hyde Park keeps a picture of the marathon bombings’ youngest casualty on the wall in his office. The Dorchester boy who loved the Bruins, and the 53-year-old cop, who grew up five houses away from where the Richard family lives, share a bond that is as heartbreaking as it is heartwarming. For nearly 12 hours on that fateful Patriots Day a year ago, Frank Armstrong led a squad of Boston police officers who stood watch over

BOSTON - After taking heat from some of its own over a decision to grant an honorary degree to an advocate for Muslim women who has made comments critical of Islam, Brandeis University withdrew the honor Tuesday night. The university said in a statement that Somali-born Ayaan Hirsi Ali would no longer receive the honorary degree, which it had planned to award her at the May 18 commencement. Ali, a member of the Dutch Parliament from 2003 to 2006, has been quoted as making comments critical of Islam. That includes a 2007 interview with Reason Magazine in which she

JERUSALEM — The Palestinian militant group Islamic Jihad said Thursday it had agreed to halt a wave of rocket fire on Israel, signaling an end to the heaviest fighting between the sides since 2012, though soon after the announcement two rockets fired from Gaza exploded inside Israel. The Islamic Jihad denied it launched the attack and it wasn´t immediately unclear who fired the rockets. Cease-fire declarations have not always been honored by militants and the barrage raised doubts about the cease-fire offer made by Islamic Jihad. The Israeli military said a total of four rockets were fired Thursday from Gaza.

WASHINGTON — As the Republican field for 2016 stands today, Hillary Clinton doesn’t have much to worry about. In fact, for all the talk about Benghazi and Obamacare, she has a lot to be happy about. The drum-beating of the annual Conservative Political Action Conference — the GOP’s pre-presidential coming-out party — gave us a glimpse of the Republican future. And for the GOP, the future is bleak. Sen. Rand Paul officially won CPAC’s presidential straw poll. His message of libertarianism plays well with the small government crowd. But it is hard to see how he makes the sale in

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

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years.

As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

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.

The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
