Before I ‘take it to the mattresses’ as promised, I must put forward this disclaimer: I have a terrible ear infection—it feels as if someone is hammering an ice pick into my ear. I haven’t eaten since yesterday morning because it hurts too much to move my jaw –talking hurts too, but I can always manage to do that. I say this not to preface my content, but my writing in general and thought cohesion…Thank you for your patience.
Theater 1: Anarchists vs. the Law
Last night I received and email that said it was from Kfir, who is the co-founder of Protest Warrior. It looked to be a typical list-serve e-mail about updates for upcoming events planned. It wasn’t. It was a message from an Anarchist group that had hacked into Protest Warrior’s website and claimed to have taken everyone’s personal information. I spoke with the FBI this morning and forwarded them ‘said email’. I was glad to see that they were interested in this—(the email also gave instructions how to hack into other sites –such as the RNC, the President’s re-election site, and all venues involved with the upcoming convention --for those on the left: it had just as many disparaging words about Senator Kerry and his affiliates also). This email was wrought with threatening language that claimed members were ‘surrounded’ and that they will ‘lash out and shut the convention down’ etc. I don’t care if this group feels as if this type of behavior is in their ‘scope of rights’ and that they consider it to be an acceptable form of civil disobedience…and ‘not an act of terrorism’ –obviously they know that there is terroristic language in the letter or they wouldn’t have felt the need to say there wasn’t. Telling people that you possess all of their personal information and that they are surrounded is a terroristic threat as far as I am concerned and –it would seem- as far as the FBI is concerned also….
Theater 2: Judicial Watch vs. John Kerry
Kat had the scoop on Drudge! She was the first to report over the weekend that the group ‘Judicial Watch’ had filed a formal complaint concerning John Kerry’s 'awards and post-service activities'. Do you remember when this very group filed a complaint against Dick Cheney to make public those involved in energy consultation? –it was ALL OVER the news… Have you heard a peep about this new complaint against Kerry –even on Fox?
Here is a small excerpt from Judicial Watch’s page regarding this matter:
“…Judicial Watch notes that unresolved allegations against Kerry include: false official reports and statements; dishonorable conduct; aiding the enemy; dereliction of duty; misuse and abuse of U.S. government equipment and property; war crimes; and multiple violations of U.S. Navy regulations and directives, the Uniform Code of Military Justice and the U.S. Code.”
“Judicial Watch also is requesting an investigation of Kerry’s anti-war activities. After he was released from active duty but while he was a commissioned officer in the inactive Naval Reserve, Kerry joined the anti-war group Vietnam Veterans Against the War and traveled to
“The allegations concerning Kerry’s conduct during the Vietnam War are credible, serious and shocking,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The sooner an investigation begins, the better.”

This time there can be no cries about a ‘vast right wing conspiracy’ or ‘republican smear campaign’ as this group has proven its non-partisan nature in the past. I am trying to predict the ‘spin’ that will be placed on this new development (if it ever makes it to the mainstream news). My guess is that they will just stick to the “swift boat veterans are liars’ and ‘this investigation is being embarked upon unjustly as it was prompted by Republican shills’ and ‘lying swift boat bastards’ defense.
Many vets have believed for years that Kerry should have been prosecuted for his anti-war activities –not his personal right to protest, but the fact that he met with the Viet Cong when he was still in the Naval Reserve and that his picture still hangs in the ‘War Remnants’ museum in Ho Chi Minh City…symbolizing the aiding and abetting of ‘the enemy’. To follow are some details of that charge:

"The Vietnamese communists clearly recognize John Kerry's contributions to their victory," Jeffrey Epstein said. "This find can be compared to the discovery of a painting of Neville Chamberlain hanging in a place of honor in Hitler's Eagle's Nest in 1945." (Epstein is a Vietnam Vet against Kerry).
The DNC and its ‘Kerry-kool-aid-drinkers’ can keep claiming that none of this is true –or relevant. But when Senator Kerry ‘Reported for Duty’, at the DNC Buyer’s Remorse Convention, he not only made this investigation relevant, but imperative for someone who is campaigning to be the Commander in Chief –and thankfully, Judicial Watch feels the same.
