Kerry conundrum: The hardest tumble
John Kerry is a thoroughly reprehensible person. When Lynn Cheney commented on Kerry said, “This is not a good man.” she was articulating a truism that sadly was grossly inadequate a means of describing the loathsome presidential wannabe.I recently got a note from my old Battalion Commander asking if there is any substance to the controversy surrounding Kerry’s military discharge. I responded, “You damnbetcha!”
The growing conventional wisdom (in military circles) is that Kerry GOT a discharge but it was other than honorable. He subsequently got Clinton to sign the fix in 2001.HOWEVER, the more egregious aspect is his having been subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice when he met with the commies in Paris. THAT was and is chargeable!
Reportedly, after the slug told a Senate hearing about his meetings with enemy agents, some senior Department of Defense types actually wanted to prosecute him. He was a Naval Reserve officer who had violated an excrement pot full of assorted laws and regulations. However, the paranoid, dysfunctional Nixon White House allegedly didn’t want to fuel the anti-war gang rhetoric and so they made the strategic and tactical error of ignoring the obvious.
The Navy was p.o.-ed too. They yanked Kerry’s security clearance when it became axiomatic he was a Naval Reserve officer not to be trusted. One retired agent reportedly observed, “Lieutenant Kerry wasn’t cleared to know what time it was!”
The reason Kerry refuses to sign Standard Form 180 and release ALL his records (over a hundred pages still under wraps), doesn’t have ‘Jack’ to do with medal inflation and hyperbolized heroics.
President Bush, former Vice President Gore, Senator McCain and others have authorized release of their records….Kerry won’t! Kerry’s Honorable Discharge some 30 years after his end of service (March 2001) is suspicious because it is so out of the ordinary. There are five classes of Discharge: Honorable, General, Other than Honorable, Bad Conduct, and Dishonorable. It smells like Kerry’s ‘first’ discharge was probably no better than a ‘General’ discharge. It has been suggested (and probably true) that the sandbagged records are loaded with appeal efforts and reports of his having provided “aid and comfort” to the enemy.
The mainstream co-conspirator/enablers media will not be able to ignore THIS elephant in the living room forever. Oh, they will try….but if you think Clinton was harassed for sexual improprieties with an intern; get ready for a coordinated Military community Tsunami over Kerry’s FULL military record. The Monica mess will compare to a small yellow hole in a Montana snow bank when contrasted with the Kerry conundrum.
* When Kerry went to Paris in the summer of 1970, he ‘claimed’ it was for his first honeymoon with
* He met with assorted communists to engage in extensive discussions about plans, procedures and how to get the U.S. to surrender to Vietnam…WHILE HE WAS CONTRACTUALLY OBLIGATED AS A NAVAL RESERVE OFFICER.
* Kerry’s covert lobbying were never reported to the Navy.
* Kerry was also subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
* As a commissioned officer, he was prohibited from making adverse statements against his chain of command or statements against his country, especially during time of war.
* Kerry lied under oath against fellow soldiers before the US Senate about crimes committed in Vietnam.
* Kerry claimed to be a war criminal on national television. The U.S. Constitution’s Article 3, Section 3, defines treason as “giving aid and comfort” to the enemy in time of warfare.
The Fourteenth Amendment, Section 3, states,
“No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President having previously taken an oath to support the Constitution of the United States, [who has] engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemy!”
The details of Kerry’s military record disaster have been floating through cyberspace for a couple of months thanks to A. L. “Steve” Nash, MAC Ret, UDT/SEAL SEAL Authentication Team.
Lipscomb observed Woodrow Wilson sent former presidential candidate Eugene Debs to prison for even demonstrating for peace negotiations with Germany during World War I.
Ambrose Bierce once observed, “The hardest tumble a man can make is to fall over his own bluff.” John Kerry’s fall is sure to rival Humpty Dumpty.
