John Kerry is at it again. In the early 1970s, John Kerry traveled to France while still officially on active duty with the United States Navy and met with representatives of the North Vietnamese government in Paris for peace talks with the U.S.
While he was never charged, or prosecuted for treason, there are many, especially veterans of the Vietnam War, who believe he should have been tried for treason [Violation of allegiance toward one's country or sovereign, especially the betrayal of one's country by waging war against it or by consciously and purposely acting to aid its enemies.] and/or sedition [Conduct or language inciting rebellion against the authority of a state.]. None of this, of course, mentions his perjurious testimony before Congress.
Now, the man who thinks that American fighting men and women in Iraq have no brains, the man who libeled all of those who fought in Vietnam by calling them ‘war criminals’ [which begs the question if he includes himself in that characterization] has done it again. Kerry has met with the President of Syria, and now he is trying to meet with the President of Iran…just days after that man called for the eradication of Israel. [Iran’s President Ahmadinejad has much in common with another Democrat, former President Jimmy Carter, who’s latest book appears to lay the entire weight of mideast unrest squarely on the presence of Israel, calling for…who knows, the eradication or physical relocation of Israel???!! Apparently such thinking [or rather lack thereof] is in whatever the Democrats seem to be drinking these days.]
The last anyone heard, diplomacy is an extension of the policy of the government of the United States of America, and it is solely within the purview of the Office of the President to make that policy. United States Senators are elected to make laws, and pass reconciled appropriations negotiated with the House of Representatives and the Administration [Executive Branch]. The Senate also hears impeachment trials, gives their ‘advice and consent’ on Presidential appointments, and ratifies [or not as the case may be] treaties with other nations negotiated by authorized members of the United States Department of State. It is not within the purview of a United States Senator to make diplomatic, or even fact finding visits abroad, to give or obtain information from heads of foreign states, or to negotiate with those heads of state, without the express consent of the President of the United States.
It is certainly not within the purview of a United States Senator to circumvent the Constitution of the United States by usurping the power vested in the President under Article II, Section 2: “He [the President] shall have Power, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two-thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls…”.
Perhaps John Kerry is in the early stages of dementia and thinks he actually won the presidency in 2004.
It is long past time for this arrogant, treasonous a**wipe to pay his bill. He cheated his way through Vietnam, then turned on his comrades-in-arms, dealing dishonesty after dishonesty as part of a planned campaign against the Vietnam War called Operation Winter Soldier. Now he will attempt to do the same thing again.
Remember how he squealed about the unfairness of the Swift Boat Veterans who told the real story of Kerry’s Vietnam ‘service’ and his ‘wounds’ and his patently phony decorations? I firmly believe that issue, along with his patented arrogance and elitist attitude cost him the election.
For four years John Kerry and just about every other Democrat have been heaping invective and insults, and downright lies at President Bush. He has never responded in kind. Now, in part because they think they have won a mandate of some sort, the Democrats think they can dictate policy to a sitting president.
The last group of politicians who tried that were the Southern Democrats of 1860, and they became so out of control they attempted to secede from the United States causing a mortal Civil War.
What Kerry is doing is not just an insult to the President, it is an insult to this nation, and to every single citizen.
It is also treason. I hope this time they nail the s.o.b. for it!
