Swift Boat vet: We’re ‘ready to go’
Boston Herald, by Hillary Chabot

The controversial Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, who helped scuttle John Kerry’s 2004 White House bid, are ready to launch torpedoes if the Bay State senator is nominated to a Cabinet post in the Obama administration, with one foe calling the whole idea an “abomination.” “We’re not too old to fight,” said Alvin Horne, a Vietnam veteran and a key member of the Swift Boat group, whose barrage of attack ads sought to discredit Kerry’s military record during the 2004 campaign. “If the commonwealth wants to send Bozo the Clown to (the) Senate they can do it

Fair Winds and Following Seas to the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. Sounds like their services might be called on once again. I and many other Veterans stand with you!

Here is a dose of reality for you people.
Harry Reid has already said that the 60 vote rule in the senate to override a veto is being changed. (I would guess he will reduce it to 51 - in a move that he and other democrats were critical of, calling it the nuclear option.)
I also believe the informal rule of allowing any senator to put a hold on a nomination will also disappear. That means President Zero will be able to nominate Jon Cary on a monday, and by the next monday, cary will be secretary of defense.
The same thing will happen with judicial appointees. Get ready for it.
We are doomed.

Ms Lindsey was asked by Hannity how he would vote for Jon Cary to Cabinet level and he replied something to the effect the president is entitled to the cabinet he chooses.(All the while he´s raising hell about Susan Rice-HUH!?)Any bets on how McCain will vote on his good buddy?

I´m opposed to ex-military people being put in charge of the Pentagon to begin with,it´s clearly supposed to be a civilian position. But on top of that you can´t have a rabidly anti-war person being in charge of the military,it would cloud the judgment of when we need to intervene.

JOOO-OOhhhhhnnn "Moron" Kerry thinks the US Army was a ´monster´ that was unleashed during the Vietnam War. The names of 50,000 members of that ´monster´ are inscribed on the Vietnam Wall in Washington, DC. They died because America sent them to fight.
They obeyed and gave everything.

John Fraud Kerreee ought to have gone to Leavenworth in 1971 for what he did in Paris. But our Republicans then had no more cajones to start that up than they do now.

And, he ought to STILL BE in prison.

We have been invaded from within. And with his nomination as SecDef, our bravest and best will likely leave their respective forces, and poseurs will be brought in to take their places. We will then have been effectively conquered from within.

I know my son won´t stay. He´s already looking elsewhere.

(P.S. #16 - FYI, this site is not Twitter. References to other posters should be as I did here, to you - by post number. It´s easier for later readers to refer back to the post you refer to. Thanks, from a later reader)

As of 2011, the black Viet Nam Wall has 58,272 names, unless more have been added during 2012.

Barry and most of the Dem Senators don´t care about the outrage Juan Fraud Cary´s nomination would invoke. They won. I´m sure they feel that the new, young voters don´t care about Viet Nam history - they care more about Sandra Fluke´s ability to have her birth control for free. Heck, these new, young voters don´t care about why the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have been fought.

If another 9/11 on our soil happens during Obozo´s reign, he´ll probably surrender our country to whomever hits us. There won´t be any retaliation a la George W. Bush. Patriotism is almost a thing of the past, no matter how red the electoral map looks.

Benedict Arnold is the perfect example of the peril of giving a prima donna authority for any military matter. He felt slighted after the battle of Saratoga, he thought he should be further up the ladder of command, and because of a personal pique and desire for revenge he sold out his country and those men under his command.

Think about it. How many connections can you see with BHO?

The Swifties are certainly not “controversial” with me. I cheered when they threw Kerry overboard, and look forward to them doing it again.

But . . .there’s a lot of talk in MA that Kerry being given a DC job is a great opportunity for Scott Brown to run again. I don’t think it’s worth his time or trouble. The chances of the MA Democrats not being able to create out of whole cloth another dipstick Dem candidate like Elizabeth Warren is 0 to none. MA Democrats would vote for the dog on Romney’s car roof if they were told to. Cripes, they would send anybody in the MA legislatures in a heart beat. Coup Deval is panting to relocate. Or Mumbles Menino can be shipped to DC, still in his hospital bed. Maybe they would get Fidel Castro to establish a two week residency here and run a campaign all in Spanish. The Dems are not going to let Scott Brown win.

Right before the end of the 2004 election, it was rumored that a defense dept type was going to reveal this traitor´s discharge status. I kept waiting, but then it didn´t matter--whatever happened with that? Also, the lsm is constantly referring to "swiftboat lies". I never heard of one lie, but they keep saying it so that makes it so....amazingly, we´ve elected a guy who hangs with terrorists, now we´re going to accept a traitor as Sec of Defense???? I´m sick. Go Swiftboaters...

Expect to hear requests for the SF 198.
It was promised but never signed. This would allow a peep into John F´n Kerry´s actual (rather than fictional) service record.
How do you get a Silver Star, with V for valor, issued by three different signers, for killing an unarmed teenage kid by shooting him in the back?
How do you negotiate with an enemy and escape punishment?
Oh, there are so many questions!
And so little time!

Justina Pelletier treated

There is a young person held captive in Massachusetts today who is not allowed to participate in religious ceremonies, or visit family without government agents watching. No, it’s not accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. It’s 15-year-old mitochondrial disease patient and nonterrorist Justina Pelletier. U.S. District Court Judge George O’Toole Jr. ruled Wednesday that the now-20-year-old charged with four deaths and injuring more than 260 people should be able to see his sisters without an FBI agent present. The feds can appeal, but he says their case would have to be “pretty convincing.” “Can you believe it?”

A person is in custody tonight after police report suspicious bags were found at the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Boylston Street. An eye-witness told the Herald tonight a man dressed all in black and wearing a black veil walked down the middle of Boylston Street, with a backpack on his back, chanting "Boston strong, Boston strong." "He was weird looking," said Matthew VanWinkle. "He was wearing a black veil, a black hat, and no shoes." The bomb squad is now on the scene and police have pushed everyone back.

Kyiv- A recording proving that Russia is backing separatists in eastern Ukraine has surfaced online. The SBU (Security Service of Ukraine) taped the operatives, whose code names are "Nose," "Adler," "Shooter" and "Agath," discussing strategy, weapon stockpiles, and requests for reinforcements. The SBU has identified the number calling the separatists in Ukraine as having a Russian +7 area code. The person with the Russian number asks Shooter to contact him. Later in the conversation, Shooter reports “fighting off the first (Ukrainian) attack” and shooting “some significant (highly-ranked Ukrainian) people."

Frank Armstrong never got the chance to know 8-year-old Martin Richard in this life. Nevertheless, the BPD captain in charge of Area E-18 in Hyde Park keeps a picture of the marathon bombings’ youngest casualty on the wall in his office. The Dorchester boy who loved the Bruins, and the 53-year-old cop, who grew up five houses away from where the Richard family lives, share a bond that is as heartbreaking as it is heartwarming. For nearly 12 hours on that fateful Patriots Day a year ago, Frank Armstrong led a squad of Boston police officers who stood watch over

BOSTON - After taking heat from some of its own over a decision to grant an honorary degree to an advocate for Muslim women who has made comments critical of Islam, Brandeis University withdrew the honor Tuesday night. The university said in a statement that Somali-born Ayaan Hirsi Ali would no longer receive the honorary degree, which it had planned to award her at the May 18 commencement. Ali, a member of the Dutch Parliament from 2003 to 2006, has been quoted as making comments critical of Islam. That includes a 2007 interview with Reason Magazine in which she

About 10 investigators with Boston Fire´s Arson unit this morning entered the four-story brownstone on Beacon Street where six days ago a roaring blaze claimed the lives of two firefighters. The arson investigators entered the building around 10 a.m. On Wednesday, Lt. Edward Walsh and Michael Kennedy died after being trapped in the basement of the 298 Beacon St. building during the roaring 9-alarm blaze. Deputy Chief Joseph Finn, who commanded the firefighters last week and made the decision to pull firefighters from the wind-driven fire, was also on scene. He had no comment when he exited the building shortly

Neal Mullane of Ladder 18 in South Boston, his own scalp gashed and burned, found himself drawn to the Back Bay firehouse that has become a kind of chapel for his grieving brethren. Mullane, 42, was one of the officers tapped at a moment’s notice to command as the Rapid Intervention Team at the nine-alarm fire. He described the desperate detail to the Herald’s Laurel J.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
