John Kerry: the radical careerist

John Kerry would have made a God awful president. The fact that he came as close as he did in 2004 reminds us of how important we need to have strong candidates to run for president.

by Daniel Greenfield

November 1971. The Anti-War movement was moving into high gear even as the Vietnam War was fading away. Americans troops were leaving Vietnam in large numbers and the last American offensive in Vietnam had begun the year before. But for the Anti-War movement, the actual war was only a pretext for undermining their country and promoting themselves.

Few men fit that description better than John Forbes Kerry who had not needed a weatherman to know which way the winds of political fortune were blowing. Vietnam Veterans Against the War became the platform for an aspiring Congressman seeking to remake his image. Despite its name VVAW was as bent on attacking the men fighting the war, as the war itself. Its publicity stunts, such as Operation RAW or Kerry’s own Senate testimony, were calculated to cast returning veterans as war criminals and murderers.

Toward the end of 1971, VVAW was balanced on the edge of its own irrelevance. The publicity stunts had brought it fame and undermined America’s position in negotiating a departure from Vietnam, but the departure was still underway. Rather than speeding it up, Kerry and VVAW had slowed it down to make the most of their moment in the sun, but once the public and VVAW’s membership realized that the war really was ending, so would their popularity.

For John Kerry, VVAW had accomplished its goal by making him famous. [.......] But not every VVAW activist had a political exit strategy. Some had a more violent one in mind.

At the Kansas City leadership meeting of VVAW, a proposal was put forward to use the Christmas recess to murder several senators. Murdering senators would not be helpful to Kerry’s career plans, but neither would informing the authorities of the plot. Unlike much of the VVAW, Kerry didn’t want to storm the Senate, he wanted to work there. And so the man of nuance found a compromise, he resigned without telling anyone of the plot.

Three months later he was running for Congress.

Kerry’s second desertion was to become a pattern in his career. While some in the VVAW were career radicals, Kerry was a radical careerist. Leftist politics were his way up the ladder, but he never let them get in the way of his own career.

Over 40 years later, Kerry, the fake war hero turned fake anti-war hero, would try to pull off the same trick a second time, going from pro-war to anti-war in Iraq.

During his Senate testimony, Kerry had said, “We who have come here to Washington have come here because we feel we have to be winter soldiers now.” But John Forbes Kerry had always been a summer soldier, a straw man playing a part, a traitor to everything but his own career. John Kerry had gone to Washington not to tell the truth, but to tell the profitable lie.

Kerry was willing to lie, to portray himself as a war hero when it suited him and as a war criminal when it suited him, and to switch from one to the other, as quickly as he switched from supporting a war to opposing it. He was willing to cover up the planned assassination of United States senators, to throw away medals that he claimed were his before claiming that they weren’t, and to make common cause with America’s enemies, so long as it got him where he needed to go.

John Kerry has spent thirty years holding public office, twenty-eight of them as a United States Senator, and he has spent that time pushing the same bankrupt politics of international appeasement. The Kerry who made up imaginary war crimes in Vietnam while testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee became a member of that same Committee while making up imaginary war crimes in Nicaragua.

The career of Senator Kerry is bookended by his support for the Sandinista terrorists at its inception to his recent support for Assad. In that time, the man who would be Secretary of State demonstrated that he had learned nothing from his constant mistakes.

In 1985, Kerry insisted that America needed to put its faith in the goodwill of the Sandinistas, as he had earlier expected it to puts its faith in the goodwill of the Viet Cong’s peace offer that he had announced in Washington D.C.

In 1970, as Kerry was taking aim at his first Congressional campaign, he told the Harvard Crimson, “I’m an internationalist. I’d like to see our troops dispersed through the world only at the directive of the United Nations.”  [........]

In 1985, Kerry finally became Senator Kerry. Shortly thereafter, Senator Kerry announced that he was going to Nicaragua to meet with the Sandinistas as a Vietnam Veteran to avoid “repeating the mistakes we made in Vietnam.”

To Kerry, Nicaragua was just another Vietnam. The Comandante, Daniel Ortega, was just another Ho Chi Mihn and the old winter soldier was back in the saddle galloping to the rescue of another Communist dictatorship. [.......] In his Senate floor speech a year later, he argued against military aid to the Contra rebels by invoking Vietnam.

“Mr. President, how quickly do we forget? How quickly do we forget? No one wanted to widen the war in Vietnam.” Then followed the usual tale of young Kerry suffering through Christmas in Cambodia and a plea not to send off another generation of American soldiers to die in Nicaragua. It was a shameless speech that Kerry would repeat with tedious regularity throughout his long political career of finding new Vietnams around the world.

While Nicaragua did not have much in common with Vietnam, the Sandinistas and the Viet Cong both had Kerry selling their agenda in Washington. In the Senate, John Kerry did exactly what he had done outside it… represent the interests of the Communist foe.

Having found himself another Vietnam, Kerry obstructed Reagan’s policy as much as he could. He met with Ortega and brought back his proposal to block all aid to the contras. [.......] It claimed that the Sandinistas were non-aligned, when they were aligned with the USSR, and Ortega’s visit to Moscow shortly thereafter would humiliate and discredit pro-Sandinista Democrats like Kerry. Kerry’s claim that he was not illegally negotiating with Ortega, but only passing along a message, was an even thinner tissue of lies.

When Reagan imposed sanctions on the Sandinista regime, Kerry denounced it as an “unpardonable” “unilateral display of arrogance.”  [......]

John Kerry defined himself as a veteran, but the one consistent attitude that he has shown is contempt for the American soldier.

As far back as his Yale days, Kerry had been insisting that American’s foreign policy problems were caused by its military. Kerry’s political career began with his demonization of American soldiers in Vietnam and it wrapped up with his demonization of American soldiers in Iraq.

In 1971, Kerry had accused American soldiers of cutting off ears and heads, raping women and behaving in a way reminiscent of Genghis Khan. Thirty-four years later, Kerry accused American soldiers in Iraq of terrorizing women and children.

[......]

“You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq,” he told students.

John Forbes Kerry, Yale man, was far too smart to get stuck in Iraq or Vietnam. Instead he did his homework and finessed his way out of Vietnam and into Washington DC. Unlike those fools in the military who believed in winning wars, he believed in losing them and profiting politically from the defeat.

This was the lesson that Kerry had taken away from his work with Vietnam Veterans Against the War, the same lesson that he had taken away from every war, that it was safer to be the senator than the soldier, the critic rather than the commander. [.......] It is the lesson that he intends to bring with him to his work as Secretary of State.

For all his cleverness, John Kerry has always been a pawn of foreign interests. Kerry let himself be used by the Viet Cong and by the Sandinistas, by the Soviet Union and by half the Muslim world. As Secretary of State, he will go on being used, no longer as a Senator, but as the most important foreign policy figure in the Obama Administration.

If John Kerry becomes Secretary of State, then every terrorist group that he panders to and every tyrant that he plays up to will ascend that post with him. The Senate confirmation of John Kerry will mean that every enemy power or group that despises the United States will have an ally at the head of this country’s foreign policy establishment.

Over 40 years ago, Kerry learned that treason will be rewarded by the political establishment of the left. If his political career is capped off with this honor, then American foreign policy will be in the hands of a man with no principle except contempt for the military and no guiding light but the efficacy of treason.

  4. 4 | January 29, 2013 7:26 am

    Two things to say in response to this excellently written article.

    First: If somehow we manage to block the Kerry nomination, as any sane thinking person believes to be the correct course of action, what happens next? Does anyone believe that Barack Obama will nominate a good candidate for Secretary of State? The next choice will be just as bad, if not outright worse. Hillary, as Secretary of State proved herself an enemy of the United States, and got a fluff piece at 60 Minutes as a reward for the suffering of fools that our nation has become. Elections have their consequences, and four more years of this idiocy is what we’ve earned by our floundering on our principles in order to pander to the squishy middle of the road. You can go down the line of Obama’s picks, and one thing rings true to tie them all together, they all pretty much suck. Solis, Holder, Chu, Lew, Clinton, Napalitano, Geitner, the whole stinking lot of them. Kerry is no worse than the current group of treasonous Marxists, merely the same mold. They’ve already set the entirety of Northern Africa and the Middle East ablaze, what’s left to burn? I’m sure we’ll find out soon enough.

    Seconldy:

    Having found himself another Vietnam, Kerry obstructed Reagan’s policy as much as he could. He met with Ortega and brought back his proposal to block all aid to the contras. [.......] It claimed that the Sandinistas were non-aligned, when they were aligned with the USSR, and Ortega’s visit to Moscow shortly thereafter would humiliate and discredit pro-Sandinista Democrats like Kerry. Kerry’s claim that he was not illegally negotiating with Ortega, but only passing along a message, was an even thinner tissue of lies.

    Maybe next time we conservatives control the Executive Branch, we should actually enforce the Logan Act. Then John Kerry would have been out of the Senate since 1985, and would have spent much of that time in prison, which he so richly deserved. Then we would never have had to worry about some dolt elected President nominating him for a cabinet post.


  5. 5 | January 29, 2013 7:41 am

    Kerry will, no doubt, get past confirmation. As Secretary of State, he’ll rack up a record worse than Clinton’s, though hopefully without the assassination of any more ambassadors. Kerry is a disgrace, and that fact is precisely why Barack Obama nominated him for this position. Obama wants a failing foreign policy. When our foreign policy fails, as it has failed in Libya and Egypt, America gets weaker, and a weakened America is one of Obama’s overriding goals.

    Speaking of “embittered ex-Vietnam soldiers,” let’s not forget Mr. Reach-Across-the-Aisle, John McCain. I am increasingly convinced that he wants to use his declining years to make his country pay for what he suffered in captivity.

    Good morning. There is some confusion as to whether or not Kerry was
    still on Naval Reserve status when he collaborted with the enemy during
    the Paris Peace Talks.
    If so he should have done some brig time, not run for Congress.

    i expect that coddled over educated piece of amoeba turd to still be a commie and a coward. the fact that he still has the same beliefs is more commendable than contemptible.

    what is more alarming is that no one in the gop even questioned him about these views and his cowardly and traitorous actions. the gop is truly useless and if anything, more cowardly than john kerry. until we get some leaders with backbone who are willing to get into a street fight with the left i am done with the gop. they are nothing more than another arm of the ever expanding fedgov monster and are not patriots nor are they ‘real americans’. they are a sad lot.

    Being shot at does not necessarily make you a hero or an absolute moral authority. Benedict Arnold was wounded twice in service to the United States and he turned out to be a traitor. John McCain was shot at, wounded, captured and tortured yet your side vilified him in 2008. If being a war vet is the highest prerequisite to being in government then Audie Murphy should have been President of the Untied States for Life.

    And your point? I had four men try to beat me to death when I lived in Tallahassee. Have you ever been the victim of violent crime? How dare you judge my response. You don’t have the experience to justify yourself. You just want to take up guns so your political leaders can have more absolute power over the people of the United States, and the criminals can be safe to go about beating the inconvenient person to death.

    As much as people complain about Obama’s foreign policy, would Republicans be any different? The GOP supports Nation Building and the interests of Saudi Arabia and Qatar. I can’t get too worked up anymore over Obama’s policies considering Republicans are offering the same. Both are beholden to Islamists interest and the do the bidding of the Muzz.

    When Republicans reject Nation Building and supporting Islamic interests, let me know. Rand Pual is the only one who believes in American interests and standing up to JIhad.

    @ Rodan:

    Republicans would be considerably different, especially when it comes to Israeli policy. Yes, there is too much Muslim outreach from the GOP, but you paint with way too broad a brush. The GOP is divided on the issue. The Democrats are not. And the GOP supports Israel. The Democrats do not.

    The GOP foreign policy would be a hell of a lot better (excluding any Bush as POTUS of course). Sending F16′s and Abrams tanks to Egypt for one. Bowing to Turkey and kicking Israel out of an anti terrorism conference would be another difference.

    The Republican Party supports sending weapons to Egypt. John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Kelly Ayotte, Marco Rubio, Mitch McConnell and Lamar Alexander all support the weapons sale to Egypt. They would kiss the ass of Turkey as well. Romney said Turkey is a NATO ally. As for Israel, the GOP may appear to support Israel, but how can they when they support the Muslim Brotherhood? It’s time for us to be intellectually honest and realize neither party has America’s best interest at heart.

    It is the Republican Party who is demanding a war to help al-Qaeda overthrow Assad. That is why I do not take them serious, nor dio I get worked up about Obama’s foreign policy anymore. The Republicans and Democrats RAE The SAME!

    While what you say about the GOP being too much into nation building is true, there would be a tremendous advantage to having the Republicans in charge, they would perform these actions from a position of strength. The democrats and Marxists (but I repeat myself) seek first to weaken the US, their secondary goal is any foreign policy achievement. The republicans still seek a strong US. Even the wimpy ROEs that were enacted under Bush were a result of media and liberal democrat (but I repeat myself again) pressure.

    Oh goody children, it’s the old, “Chicken Hawk,” argument. Shall we destroy it once more, just for the eternally stupid?

    Putting aside for the moment that it amounts to nothing more than an ad hominem attack, in this case Iron Fist’s opinions and logically laid out arguments are not to be taken seriously, because theoutsider is not sufficiently convinced of his war time bona fides is a well nuanced position that the message is irrelevant since the messenger meets the criteria of derision. Does theoutsider really wish to travel down this path, once he really thinks it through?

    Should opinions and arguments only be reserved for those who meet the designated criteria? When discussing tax policy, should only the statements made by CPA’s be considered? Where does it end?

    Next, theoutsider does not realize it, but he has unknowingly supported a position that represents a real danger identified by the founding fathers, and dealt with in the Constitution. His statement that only people involved with the military should be entitled to have an opinion on foreign policy matters subverts the idea that our military be accountable to the civilian government, which is we the people. What theoutsider is proposing with his not so well thought out position that only military people should have opinions on this matter is in fact an eventual martial law, a governance by our military.

    While this situation may very well be preferable to the Presidency of Barack Obama, it is still not in the best interests of the country to travel down this road that has only led to evil monstrous regimes throughout human history. Removing the military from the constraints of civilian control can only lead to bad outcomes. So no thanks hippy fool, try again.

    I don’t disagree with you on that. I place a great deal of the sharia state setup on Bush caving to the left; that was an inexcusable cave. What it did to the Chrisitans in Iraq and preventing Christians from operating in Afghanistan was a travesty.

    My real point was that they did not seek to weaken the US, everything the current regime is doing has that as its primary objective.

    Only the lies of the msm have kept Kerry out of Levinworth for treason.

    The $ of the Forbes family, his wifes money and the fact he is a co commie with William Ayers and the like.

    The lowest of his crimes is that his daughters have to know that he is a full bore liar. They have to know the CIA hat is a lie, they know it and it will shame in for all time.

    There was no VC or NVA that fired on the 5 Swift Boats after the under water mine went off under the first boat on the Hap River deal.

    He and the Lt. Rasmussen made it all up.

    He had pairasomia, aka bed wetting and sleep walking, still does and took drugs for it then in a combat zone, caused him to be asleep when he was on radar watch and the VC got to close to his swift boat and the .50 cal guy up top Steve Gardner had to fire in the sanpan and he fired and got the VC and a 12 year old kid too.

    Kerry is not worth spit.

    * The bitter clinger speech
    * School Lunches (with his wife as an unelected proxy).

    In all of those cases (and more) this President has shown a disturbing lack of self-control. Serious people understand that power is not holy water. You don’t expend it willy nilly. In topics of personal preference Obama has interjected his opinion which is neither needed nor ethical.

    Give the people back their ingestibes, their entertainment, and their choice of significant others. Bigger things should be afoot but this ADHD President can’t seem to focus on any of that.

    I don’ tknow about that. We consider his foreign policy a great failure, but I’d bet money that he considers it a great success. He is accomplishing exactly what he wants to do. The same is true of the economy. He wants a United States where people accept a lower standard of living, and he has succeeded at that, as evidenced by his winning re-election with an appalling unemployment rate. No Republican could have done that. You see him as unfocused, but he is focusing on exactly what matters to him. What you are seeing isn’t so much a lack of discipline, but a difference in priorities.

    FRANCOIS Hollande was left picking up the pieces after France was sent into a state of shock as his labour minister described the nation as “totally bankrutpt.

    Michel Sapin was left red-faced after revealing the potential state of the French economy and leaving the French public to question Mr Hollande’s policy.

    Speaking during a radio interview, he said: “There is a state but it is a totally bankrupt state. That is why we had to put a deficit reduction plan in place, and nothing should make us turn away from that objective.”

    I find it very interesting that many of the people who freaked about George Bush’s spending (including then Senator Obama) don’t seem to care that Obama has doubled the burn rate. Personally, Bush was way out of control, and the Republicans deserved a slap-down, but the Democrats weren’t the way to do it. No budget in four years, and I’ll be really shocked if the Senate comes up with a budget this year. But if they do, you can bet it’ll be for eleventy trillion dollars. They’ve factored the “Stimulus” in as their base-line budget. At least they have until the bond market goes south on us.


  79. 79 | January 29, 2013 10:54 am

    The media has always been pretty liberal, but what’s happening now is wholly unprecedented. Obama is using the media as a private army and actively squelching those outlets and personalities who refuse to fall in line. Yeah, Clinton called out Limbaugh, but there’s a tenor with Obama, and the media on behalf of Obama that’s entirely different.

They will say anything to get elected, and then turn around and vote the exact opposite without a trace of shame.
