Dr. David Duke on his website приводит Two linked photographs of John Kerry: sample 1971 and 2013 of the year. In the top (black and white) snapshot Kerry, a Vietnamese veteran, speaks against the war in the US Congress; on the bottom (color), he calls senators for war there.
This evolution is not an accident.
Here is another photo, also from 1971 of the year (borrowed from the site factreal.wordpress.com). The picture was posted in January 2013 - a month later from the day Obama nominated Kerry for the post of US foreign minister. Written on the page the following: "John Kerry is the perfect choice for Obama's destructive agenda." The following states: “Meet the genuine John Kerry, whom Obama appointed Secretary of State instead of Hillary Clinton.”
As the author writes, John Kerry, testifying in the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee of 22 on April 1971, slandered American soldiers who fought in Vietnam, claiming that they committed systematic atrocities "like Genghis Khan." Kerry's goal was to persuade public opinion against the US military, force the US to withdraw from Vietnam and allow the spread of communism, the author quite seriously says.
December 24 2012 of the year Arnold Alert in an article on the resource frontpagemag.com wrote that, officially nominating Kerry for the post of state secretary, Barack Obama noted that the “whole life” of this man was “preparing him for this role.” In addition, the President of the United States claimed that the military service in Vietnam taught Kerry "responsibility when using American power." Why, just a similar assessment, the journalist makes a bitter irony, can be a shock to thousands of Vietnam veterans, whose reputation Kerry has destroyed, achieving the realization of his own radical political goals.
Hillary Clinton was unable to attend the ceremony of appointing the Secretary of State - due to the fact, the author believes, to "dodge" the testimony of the tragedy in the Libyan Benghazi. However, she made a written statement in which, in particular, she noted: “John Kerry passed the test of war, as well as in government and diplomatic posts. Again and again he proved his courage. ” And one more phrase: “I remember listening to the testimony of young Lieutenant Kerry in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee many years ago and thought that I had just seen a man of extraordinary courage and conscience.”
Meanwhile, the journalist reminds that many Americans are aware of the sad performance of this very John Kerry, a representative of the Vietnam Veterans Against War (XVAW), in 1971. In the Senate Committee, he stated that the American soldiers in Vietnam had been raped, their ears and heads were cut off, they dug their genitals with telephone wires, connected to voltage lines, cut off limbs, accidentally shot civilians, destroyed villages like Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs just for the sake of entertainment, they poisoned food supplies and in general devastated the areas in the south of Vietnam - all this in addition to the usual devastating war. Kerry argued that such atrocities were committed day after day "with full awareness at the level of all government bodies."
Finally, Kerry, whom the author calls a "defeatist," declared: "We cannot fight communism all over the world, and I think we should now learn the appropriate lesson."
Kerry's past makes it an ideal choice for the radical Obama administration, says Jerome Corsey, Harvard Ph.D. And John O'Neill, the former leader of the veteran organization Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, which played an important role in disrupting Kerry’s presidential campaign on 2004, in an e-mail published in the Wall Street Journal in the column of the then member of the editorial board Seth Lipsky stated that Kerry is “well qualified to be the Minister of Defense ... of Cuba or Venezuela. He is, of course, a great specialist in surrender and can work successfully there before the release of the white flag. ”
Lipsky himself also wonders about Kerry’s hypocrisy. “It’s hard to find someone who more defamed the name of the soldiers who fought in Vietnam than Senator Kerry,” Lipsky said.
Most Americans do not know, continues Arnold Alert, that Kerry not only tarnished the veterans ’reputation, but also doused the United States with methods of warfare.
Regarding the use of force in Iraq, Kerry said that Saddam Hussein is a "cruel and bloody dictator" who "uses weapon mass destruction. Meanwhile, Kerry spoke about the actions of the American armed forces in Iraq. He said this on the CBS channel in the Face of the Nation program (December 4 2005 of the year) to host Bob Schiffer:
"There is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers should break into the homes of Iraqis, terrorize children and women in the dead of midnight ..."
Most of Kerry’s speeches would now be hidden from the public if it were not for the activities of Swift Boat Veterans for Truth members (“Veterans of Intelligence Units for Truth”; officially closed in 2008 year).
These fighters for truth exposed Kerry’s slander of American soldiers and largely debunked much of his personal “heroism.” Exposures had such an effect that, in 2010, investigations from Pro Publica and National Public Radio showed that the soldiers who had suffered a concussion in Iraq were denied the Purple Heart only because some military doctors didn’t want “more than John Kerry ". Swift Boat Veterans for Truth members claimed that Kerry did not earn his Purple Hearts. Some of these accusations were based on the allegations that, despite receiving three “Hearts,” he did not spend a day in hospitals.
In the past, Kerry himself "disqualified" himself as the future secretary of state, the author writes. 18 April 1971 of the year, appearing at the “Meeting with the Press”, this man confessed to committing war crimes in Vietnam:
"... I should have said that, yes, yes, I committed the same atrocities that thousands of other soldiers committed ..."
Kerry added that those who condone or engaged in this kind of activity were "war criminals."
Later, Kerry tried to justify his behavior in the past by calling himself "an embittered young man."
By the way, the text of the speech of D. Kerry from 22 April 1971 of the year is given on the website facultystaff.richmond.edu (In English).
Как notes James M. Wall, after that speech in the Senate, John Kerry spent most of his life in politics. He began as lieutenant governor of the state of Massachusetts in 1983, and from 1985 of the year he continued as US senator from the same state. Then he replaced Hillary Clinton as state secretary.
The site discoverthenetworks.org reported weight of biographical details about John Kerry.
After graduating from Yale in 1966, John Kerry enlisted in the US Navy and then served as intelligence officer in the Mekong Delta in Vietnam. He was awarded the "Silver Star", "Bronze Star" and three "Purple Hearts."
After firing from the Navy at the beginning of 1970's, Kerry became a prominent figure in America’s anti-war and “pro-Hanoi” movement. Like many other activists of the time, Kerry publicly slandered American soldiers. During an unsuccessful attempt to run for Congress in 1970, Kerry portrayed the United States as a country whose aggressive attempts could be curbed:
"I am an internationalist, and I would like our troops to go abroad only at the direction of the United Nations."
In May 1970, Kerry met with the Vietnamese delegation in Paris and then urged the US Senate to accept the views of the Vietnamese Communists. True, at that time Kerry himself admitted that his visit to Paris was "on the verge of private negotiations." This is important because US federal law prescribed severe punishment (up to the death penalty) for any person who "without proper authority ... communicates ... or maintains any relationship with the enemy, directly or indirectly."
Constantly participating in the VVAW demonstrations, Kerry walked alongside the "revolutionary communists."
More than three decades later, when Kerry was running for president of the United States, retired General George S. Patton III was outraged that Kerry’s actions gave “help and support to the enemy.” He declared :
“As the national leader of VVAW, Kerry launched a campaign against the efforts of the United States to contain communism. He used the blood of the military, still fighting, for his own political career, arguing that their blood was shed in vain ... Under Kerry’s leadership, VVAW members mocked the uniform of United States soldiers wearing ragged camouflage, written with pro-communist graffiti. They disgraced America by marching on demonstrations under the enemy flag of the Viet Cong. ”
23 April 1971, that is, the day after his testimony in the Senate, Kerry and a number of other pacifist veterans “solemnly” returned some of the medals they were awarded for their valor, the article notes.
In subsequent years, Kerry offered different versions of what happened to his combat medals. In 1984, he reported that he still owns all of his medals, and that the only medal he got rid of was actually ... belonged to another soldier.
In 1988, he said that he threw out three awards, which he was honored by being wounded in battles, but those were ... not his medals.
In 1996, he told Boston Globe that he really threw away the awards, but not his own.
During the presidential election of 2004, he repeatedly denied having returned or discarded any of his medals. In an interview in December 2003, Kerry said: “I am proud of my medals. I have always been proud of them, ”adding that he only got rid of his“ stripes. ” In April 2004, he told the Los Angeles Times reporter: “I threw away my stripes. I did not have my medals. It is very simple ... We have abandoned the symbols of what our country gave us for what we have passed. ”
In September 1973, Kerry entered the law school at Boston College, where he received a degree three years later. He immediately found work as a prosecutor in the office of the district attorney of Middlesex County, Massachusetts. And in 1982, he was already elected vice-governor of that state. Then there was the career of a senator from the same state. In 1984, he ran, won, and was subsequently re-elected to 1990, 1996, 2002, and 2008.
In 1983, Kerry condemned the actions of the Reagan administration in Grenada. Kerry regarded the invasion as an attack by a “bully on the weak.” He also said: “The invasion will only heighten tensions in the world and weaken the already fragile American-Soviet relations ...”
In December 1985, Kerry was the only US senator to vote against funding for police training in El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, and Costa Rica. In 1986, Kerry supported the "initiative of American military veterans protesting against President Reagan" regarding actions in the poor of Nicaragua, El Salvador and Guatemala.
In April, 2004, a journalist, Tim Russert asked Kerry to clarify his statement from 1970, that US foreign intervention should only occur at the behest of the United Nations. Kerry replied:
“This is one of those stupid things that 27-year-olds say, just returned from Vietnam and very angry about it. I have never, never, never, on any vote, in any policy, in any speech I have not made any public statements of this kind - in all those years when I held elected positions. In fact, I say the following and say it very clearly: I will never cede the security of the United States to any institution, and I will never cede to our security in any other country. No country will have the right to prohibit what we must do to protect ourselves. ”
However, in fact, Kerry’s book A Call to Service, released in 2003, essentially repeats what he said to 33 a year ago. Kerry wrote in the book that "international organizations are the means to promote our ideals and interests around the world." Moreover, it was Kerry who contributed to the creation of the International Criminal Court under the auspices of the UN.
In 2001, Kerry voted to use military force against Saddam Hussein. He was firmly convinced that Saddam was committed to creating weapons of mass destruction. For several weeks and months before the invasion of 2003, Kerry made statements in which he emphasized that it would be “naive” to underestimate Saddam Hussein and that even if the UN Security Council was against, the US would still “retain the right” to act in Iraq. Kerry was broadcasting:
“Without a doubt, we must disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a cruel and bloody dictator, leader of a repressive regime. And we all know a number of his crimes ... "
However, in the 2004 year, further noted in the material, "the political wind blew in a different direction." Kerry and his fellow Democratic Congressmen began to declare with increasing frequency that the war in Iraq was a fiasco in foreign policy, and military action was launched without good reason. In 2004, for example, Kerry argued that President Bush not only “misled the American people” about the threat from Saddam, but also “arbitrarily” decided that “the time for diplomacy was over” and “threw our people into the depths of war”. Later, Kerry accused the US military of "terror" against the Iraqi people. (See above the words spoken by Bob Schiffer).
10 January 2008, the year Kerry supported Senator Barack Obama from Illinois as a candidate for the US presidency.
In February, 2009, a few days after Obama's inauguration, Kerry was sent to Syria as part of a review of foreign policy and Obama’s attempt to establish new relations with those countries that were considered “hostile” during the Bush administration. In February 2009, Bashar Asad told Kerry that Washington should “move away from policies based on dictation,” and that in the future, relations between the US and Syria should be based on Washington’s “right understanding” of Middle East issues. Kerry used this occasion to criticize the former US administration (Bush):
"Unlike the Bush administration, which believed that it was possible to simply take people like that and tell them what to do and leave and wait for them to do so, we believe that you should participate in the discussion."
A year later, Kerry, as chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, sat down again at the negotiating table with Assad. In April 2010, the senator said:
"Syria is an important player in establishing peace and stability in the region."
30 August 2013, Barack Obama ordered Secretary of State Kerry to speak in support of the US response to events in Syria. In this speech, Kerry called Assad "a gangster and a murderer," and said that he was responsible for the death of 1429 people who allegedly died from the use of chemicals.
At the Senate Foreign Relations Committee of 3 in September, Senator Ron Johnson asked Kerry about what America knows about the opposition in Syria. The senator believes that if “at the initial stage,” this opposition, “maybe” was “more pro-Western, more moderate, more democratic,” but now it has “degraded”, al-Qaida elements have penetrated it. Is it true that this happened? - asked the senator (part of the question was unintelligible).
“No, in fact, this is basically wrong. This is basically wrong. Opposition is increasingly defined as moderate ... ”
Kerry also spoke about the desire of this opposition to democratic processes, the protection of minorities through the constitution, the secular future of Syria. And he added: "And this is very important." Kerry responded already from Russia. President Vladimir Putin accused the Secretary of State of lying to Congress.
William Biglow (published 16 on December 2012 on breitbart.com) bluntly calls John Kerry a “pathological liar.”
On the page "RePeace" on Facebook, Kerry said very briefly, but clearly. He is called the “sad, sad doll” hired by “Exxon” and “Goldmann Sachs”, which has no conscience and no face of repentance on its face. Kerry is called a liar, a fighter for evil and a man who wants to kill even more innocent children, women and their fathers,
"To bury a million more corpses in the mud, in order to get a gas pipeline from Qatar through Syria."
