Obama Nominates Kerry for Secretary of State

Recommended Posts

 KERRY: There's a story in today's Washington Post that says that Democrats are going to run away from the issue of gun safety. I don't think that we can get elected nationally if we are not prepared to stand up against powerful special interests. Too many die each year from guns. I am for the assault weapons ban. I'm for the Brady Bill.

In case anyone was wondering where he stands on gun control.

Most of them aren't idiots like Kerry. Instead, they are extreme liberal ideologues, a kind way to say communists.



Kerry, Biden, Holder, etc. Do you see a lot of intelligence between these guys? I don't.

I recall he is a phony, and a flat out no good American, I recall he physcially threw away several service metals including his purple heart, bronze star and silver star.  What a piece of work.  To remind everyone, here are a few ads from that very respectful swiftboat crew back in 2004, and just one link to wikipedia:

Nah, not really intelligence, but it doesn't take intelligence to ruin things. It just takes a mistaken ideology and a long

term resolve to fulfill. To just say they are idiots misses something. Biden isn't as big an idiot as most might think.


Look back some time at the carnage a drunken fool could do with Robert Bork. There is a trend Kennedy started,

and Biden did the same with others. We view them as idiots, but we may be missing the point of their idiocy if we don't

delve into what their goals are.


At least that's the way I try to look at them. Once you understand them, that tinfoil creeps up, rapidly. Most people

tend to call it tinfoil, anyway, but it's been going on way before Saul Alinsky. Straight out of the Communist playbook:

Incrementalism. They are fools, not idiots.


Just my point of view. :D

Didn't he serve in Vietnam?


/sarc off.




John Kerry's service in Vietnam lasted 4 months and 12 days, beginning in November 1968 when he reported to Cam Ranh Bay for a month of training. His abbreviated combat tour ended shortly after he requested a transfer out of Vietnam on March 17, 1969, citing Navy instruction 1300.39 permitting personnel with three Purple Hearts to request reassignment. So far as we are able to determine, Kerry was the only Swift sailor ever to leave Vietnam without completing the standard one-year tour of duty, other than those who were seriously wounded or killed.

It is clear that at least one of Kerry's Purple Heart awards was the result of his own negligence, not enemy fire, and that Kerry went to unusual lengths to obtain the award after being turned down by his own commanding officer.

John Kerry has long insisted that using the three-injury loophole to leave combat early was his own idea, but Kerry's fellow Swift officer Thomas Wright, who served on occasion as the OIC (Officer in Charge) of Kerry's boat group, contradicts that claim. Wright reports that he "had a lot of trouble getting Kerry to follow orders," and that those who worked with Kerry found him "oriented towards his personal, rather than unit goals and objectives." He therefore requested that Kerry be removed from his boat group. After John Kerry qualified for his third Purple Heart, Thomas Wright and two fellow officers informed him of the obscure regulation, and told him to go home. Wright concluded, "We knew how the system worked and we didn’t want him in Coastal Division 11."

Constructing a complete picture of Kerry's service is difficult due to gaps in the Naval records provided by the Kerry campaign. These gaps include missing and incomplete fitness reports, missing medical records and missing records related to his medal awards.

For this reason we call upon Senator Kerry to authorize complete access to all his military records by filing a standard Form 180, a simple two-page release form.

Swift Vets and POWs for Truth is in the process of researching John Kerry's time in Vietnam by conducting interviews with eyewitnesses to his activities, and we plan to add material to this section over the next several weeks as it becomes available. We will report the true circumstances of Kerry's medal awards and injuries, describe other controversial missions, and provide in-depth analysis of his fitness reports.
