In so many ways the anti-war movement has been so wrong about so many things. In the 70's many of them painted the American fighting man as an evil baby-killer, fighting for an evil government. Here is an article from today's Star Tribune by a former draft resistor who is now ashamed of what he did then, and who is now disappointed by John Kerry. To him he says,


"We were wrong then; you don't have to be wrong now."

In other matters , here is an interesting article related to the UN, and its anti-semitism.

On Kerry, from You big mouth, You:

Kerry was wrong about the Viet Cong.

Kerry was wrong about the North Vietnamese.

Kerry was wrong about the Cubans in Grenada.

Kerry was wrong about the Sandanistas in Nicaragua.

Kerry was wrong about the Soviets and their reaction to Reagan's defense build-up.

Kerry was wrong about Saddam in 1991.

Kerry was wrong about Saddam in 2003.

Why would we bet the country's national security on Kerry finally getting something right?

The issue of homosexuality has been coming up in the news alot lately, and it has really struck me what a divide there is between what the secular culture and religious culture have said in regards to it. I was going to write a post on this subject, but then i found a post by another blogger that explained my feelings on the subject to a T.

Here is an article that is very damning of John Kerry. It talks about how he was taking contributions from, and giving help to a Chinese spy (knowingly or unknowingly). Here is an excerpt:

In 1996, Senator John Kerry was locked in a hard-fought and close reelection campaign with Massachusetts Governor William Weld. Kerry was the policy wonk, noted for his expertise in international crime, arms and drug dealing, and intelligence. ... [Johnny] Chung gave $10,000 to Kerry's campaign -- most of it illegally -- hosted a fund-raising party in Beverly Hills, and threw in an extra $10,000 to honor Kerry at a Democratic Senate Campaign Committee event. Kerry eventually returned all the Chung money.
In return, Kerry opened a door for a friend of Chung: Liu Chaoying.


So the man who claims he opposes special interests and claims he can't be bought certainly seems available for rent when necessary. While helping contributors and friends of contributors happens all the time, seldom does one see a politician who participates so blatantly and then turn around and get so sanctimonious about it.

But Kerry's hypocrisy isn't really the story -- his bad judgment in his "friends" presents a clear danger to the US:

The woman, Liu Chao Ying, worked in high ranking positions for two companies responsible for brokering one of the biggest and most controversial arms sales of the 1990's -- a $300-million missile deal with Pakistan. The two companies were sanctioned by the United States for their deals with Pakistan. ...


No matter how you cut it, this is not someone I want to entrust our national security to.

From Today's Sun Newspaper - more on the John Kerry affair allegations:

THE beauty said to have had a fling with presidential hopeful John Kerry has recorded a bombshell tell-all interview.

Journalist Alex Polier taped a talk with a US TV network at Christmas.

The former Washington intern, 27, told all about an alleged fling with the 60-year-old super-rich senator in spring 2001.

The channel is sitting on the tape until it has enough evidence to back her story.


We're all waiting for them to release this interview. Will they ever? More Here

EDIT: now the woman has recanted saying:

"For the last several days I have seen Internet and tabloid rumors relating to me and Senator John Kerry. Because these stories were false, I assumed the media would ignore them. It seems that efforts to peddle these lies continue, so I feel compelled to address them. I have never had a relationship with Senator Kerry, and the rumors in the press are completely false.

I hope that this is truly the case, that this never happened..

Here is a powerline article detailing the hypocrisy of the media in their coverage of the Bush "awol" non-existant scandal, and the Kerry affair scandal:

Letters to the Editor - The Washington Times: Editorials/OP-ED

The left and the media have been harping on this tired "Bush escaped active duty" mantra for the last week or so. Even Bush releasing his pay records hasn't hushed them up. An editorial in today's Washington Times hopefully will do the trick. COL. WILLIAM CAMPENNI (retired) talks about how he and Bush were in the ANG together in 1970-1971, and talks about the climate during that time. This should clear up any lingering doubts about Bush's service (ok i know it won't cause the left doesn't care about the truth)

COL. WILLIAM CAMPENNI to Kerry and others - KNOCK IT OFF!

The Democrats have been touting the charge in recent days that bush was "AWOL" during his guard duty as a young man. The man who's statement they base that on has softened his earlier statements saying he didn't know if Bush did or didn't report, and that those in guard duty are allowed to miss duty, as long as they make it up. Story here:

Exultate Justi has a great post today talking about the "LIST", a list found at the Iraqi oil ministry of people/governments/regimes that were receiving Iraqi oil. It just brings to light once again why we can't take the refusal of th French and Russian Governments to engage in the Iraqi war at face value. Great post - find it here
