Does Kerry Still Think Assassination Of The President And V.P. Is Funny?

Sen. John Kerry has a long and dubious record in foreign policy.

In the 1970′s, he testified against his fellow Vietnam War veterans before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He charged that they were violating the Geneva Conventions every day in Vietnam. Some POWs were outraged at Kerry’s disloyal statements. They said they had been tortured by their Communist captors trying to force them to make such untrue statements.

Worse, Kerry went to Paris in 1971. There, he met with North Vietnamese Communists. We need to see all his notes from those meetings. Any negotiation between a private U.S. citizen and a foreign power is illegal. It violates the Logan Act of 1798. Did Kerry demand of the North Vietnamese Communists that they abide by the Geneva Convention? Or is that only a demand he made of his fellow Americans?

We do not charge Kerry with treason in the statements and actions he engaged in then. Treason consists of giving aid and comfort to the enemies of the United States. But this country has set a very high bar for conviction for treason–ever since the Burr Treason Trial of 1807. Nonetheless, we do say Kerry’s actions and statements then were not those to which America’s top diplomat should be linked. What was he thinking?

In the 1980s, Kerry campaigned for the Nuclear Freeze. The Soviet KGB, we now know, was a major funder and promoter of this disastrous idea. The Freezeniks believed that President Carter’s promise to send Pershing and Cruise missiles to our NATO allies in Western Europe should be dishonored.

Freezeniks thought that the only thing we should do in response to aggressive Soviet placement of SS-19 and SS-20 Intermediate Range Ballistic Missiles (IRBMs) in Eastern Europe was to freeze the West into no response. By freezing in terror, we could morally pressure the Soviets into withdrawing their missiles, the naive Freezeniks argued. Harvard’s Polish-born Adam Ulam famously punctured this pink balloon: “An’ wot will you doo iff they dun’t?”

    This is just a way to give John F*ing Kerry a 4 year farewell. The demmorhoids want a younger person in that Senate seat and this will mean Kerry will serve 4 years as SecState and then retire.

    Imagine a world where another party could serve as opposition to the Democrats and actually fight against the nomination of a freeloading, American troop-hating, treasonous scumbag.

    Looks as though the (D)s finally have decided to really pull the life suppoprt plug on the country.

    Still, it would be interestng to know how a horsefaced, arrogant, pompous gigolo managed to get two very rich women to marry him – especially the second one. Of course, neither of them actually made the money so they may be as brainless as they seem.

    JF’nK went to Paris in 1971? Wasn’t he still in the Navy then?

    Not certain, but I believe the Navy frowns on such initiative by Lt Jaygees.
