RAPID RESPONSE...Daily Commentary on News of the Day
This is a new section. It will offer fresh, quick reactions by myself to news and events of the day, day by day, in this rapid-fire world of ours. Of course, as in military campaigns, a rapid response in one direction may occasionally have to be followed by a "strategic withdrawal" in another direction. Charge that to "the fog of war", and to the necessary flexibility any mental or military campaign must maintain to be effective. But the mission will always be the same: common sense, based upon facts and "real politick", supported by a visceral sense of Justice and a commitment to be pro-active. That's all I promise.

HOWEVER PAINFUL, DON'T TURN THE PAGE JUST YET ON THE JUSTICE KAVANAUGH HEARINGS.
They became an abomination choreographed by a Democratic Party taken over by its Leftist mob.
There are lessons that must be learned here.
Two statements recently published must be read in their entirety to understand the import of the above experience.
•    "Voices Of Reason - And Unreason", by Peggy Noonan (WSJ Oct. 13 - 14, 2018, Opinion, pA17.
•    "Is 'First, Kill All The Lawyers' The Democrats' New Credo?",by George Melloan (ibid.).
Then read the Editorial published in The Day, Oct. 14, 2018: "For The Sake Of Our Kids, Revive Civil Discourse". An important point was made: that children learn by example. But the writers are careful to stay within the common "mistakes were made" ploy rather than to place the blame directly on Leftist mobs of adults and quasi - adults.
Then re-read the above statements.

"FEMALE" HYPOCRISY UNVEILED.

Not "ladies". Not "women". Just genetic females.

The abortion issue is the single most important issue dividing this nation and its people for nearly a century. And it was made worse by the USSC in "Roe v. Wade", a crass political decision totally devoid of medical, legal or moral basis.

In my opinion, the time has come for a grass-roots initiative to bring forth a Constitutional Convention to address a Constitutional Amendment declaring personhood for the fetus from the time of conception and protected under the 5th and 14th Amendments of the U.S. Constitution.

Meanwhile, this one issue is tearing this nation apart, much as the issue of Slavery did in the 19th century. Did we learn anything from that experience? Or must we re-live it?

LET'S TALK A BIT ABOUT HEALTH CARE DELIVERY AND COSTS...
AGAIN.
After all, I'm still in active medical practice (my 61st year), I've been writing about this for decades...and the problems are getting worse and worse.
Consider this:
1) A family of four can now have an insurance deductible of $20,000. per year.
2) One of the main causes of personal bankruptcy involves health care bills, often the result of just one serious illness or injury.
3) Many medical practices will no longer take as patients Medicaid or Husky - or even Medicare - patients.
4) As well as availability, the Quality of medical care especially on the front lines is declining, leading directly to more and more expensive health care later.
5) We learn that 10,000 more Baby Boomers reach Medicare age each week!
Now Consider These Beneficial Options, available to our "leaders" for decades but never implemented or in some cases never even considered:
a) Health Savings Accounts to replace most of the commercial plans.
b) Demanding that the Federal Government negotiate drug prices, something that our Federal legislators RULED OUT by Law in the Medicare Act of 2002, thanks to their lobbyists.
c) Greatly reduce the massive practice of "Defensive Medicine", the direct rest of current Medical Malpractice laws, by replacing them with Health Care Courts similar to Bankruptcy and Patent courts moderated by people who actually know what they are doing.
d) If Health Care is a "Right", it is certainly a Right with corresponding Responsibilities including maintaining a healthy life style and avoidance of risky behaviors. It is certainly not another "Entitlement".
e) Reduce the need for nursing homes by greatly increasing and supporting the availability of home health care and by helping the affected families. 
f) End the current schizophrenic approach to addictive drug use with a combination of selective legalization and the support of medical care options for cure or for controlled maintenance. This would include a return to a rational approach to treatment of Pain, which current approach is scaring physicians away from prescribing ANY pain medication - including some "Pain Clinics".
g) Bring under control the current and worsening ridiculous regulatory and documentation schemes - made worse and not better by "electronic medical records" - foisted on health care providers of all stripes by bureaucrats who seem to understanding nothing of what is necessary for an effective doctor - patient relationship and partnership.
This list is certainly not exhaustive - just exhausting and demoralizing to all involved.                         HELP. HELP.

THE SHAMEFUL ACTIVITIES OF DEMOCRATIC  LEFTISTS IN THE KAVANAUGH CASE ARE MAINLY OVER.

See the statement of Cardinal Ouellet to "Fellow Brother" Archbishop Vigano, declaring: "Your accusations against Pope are 'blasphemous', false, 'political maneuver without any real foundation'" (www.zenit.org, Oct. 7, 2018).
Then see the article by Ross Douthat entitled "The Pope And The Accusers" (NYTimes, Oct. 7, 2018). His final comment echoes my stated wonder at the Pope's ineffective response to date.
"The truth is that Francis could preempt the right-wing partisans tomorrow with a Roman housecleaning, an American investigation, an accounting for both his own record and his predecessors' failures. The question that his admirers cannot answer is why he has chosen silence and self-righteousness instead." PRECISELY!

Trump Continues to Move Agenda, Despite Media

President Trump is entirely right to question seriously the actions - and especially the motives - of all of the member nations. And he is entirely right to restrict and withdraw the United States from that gang when necessary in the interests of this nation.
Witness just two recent "actions" of the UN. One involves its assertion that our withdrawal from the nuclear pact with Iran is contrary to a 1955 "amity" agreement. There has been no "amity" since 1979, thanks to the criminal actions of its leaders.

ALL DOTS CONNECTED...


Let’s follow the trail......


Here's what it looks like when all the pieces are sewn together. It smells like conspiracy and treason. Everyone needs to read this. Slowly, and patiently, because it’s very important......

From 2001 to 2005 there was an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

A Grand Jury had been impaneled.

Governments from around the world had donated to the “Charity”.

Yet, from 2001 to 2003 none of those “Donations” to the Clinton Foundation were declared.

Hmmm, now you would think that an honest investigator would be able to figure this out.

Guess who took over this investigation in 2002?

Bet you can’t guess.

None other than James Comey.

Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

Guess who was transferred in to the Internal Revenue Service to run the Tax Exemption Branch of the IRS?

Your friend and mine, Lois “Be on The Look Out” (BOLO) Lerner.

Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

It gets better, well not really, but this is all just a series of strange coincidences, right?

Guess who ran the Tax Division inside the Department of Injustice from 2001 to 2005?

No other than the Assistant Attorney General of the United States, Rod Rosenstein.

Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

Guess who was the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation during this time frame?

I know, it’s a miracle, just a coincidence, just an anomaly in statistics and chances, but it was Robert Mueller.

What do all four casting characters have in common?

They all were briefed and/or were front line investigators into the Clinton Foundation Investigation.

Now that’s just a coincidence, right?

Ok, lets chalk the last one up to mere chance.

Let’s fast forward to 2009......

James Comey leaves the Justice Department to go and cash-in at Lockheed Martin.

Hillary Clinton is running the State Department, on her own personal email server by the way.

The Uranium One “issue” comes to the attention of Hillary.

Like all good public servants do, you know looking out for America’s best interest, she decides to support the decision and approve the sale of 20% of US Uranium to no other than, the Russians.

Now you would think that this is a fairly straight up deal, except it wasn’t, the People got absolutely nothing out of it.

However, prior to the sales approval, no other than Bill Clinton goes to Moscow, gets paid 500K for a one hour speech then meets with Vladimir Putin at his home for a few hours.

Ok, no big deal right?

Well, not so fast, the FBI had a mole inside the money laundering and bribery scheme.

Guess who was the FBI Director during this time frame?

Yep, Robert Mueller.

He even delivered a Uranium Sample to Moscow in 2009.

Guess who was handling that case within the Justice Department out of the US Attorney’s Office in Maryland?

No other than, Rod Rosenstein.

Guess what happened to the informant?

The Department of Justice placed a GAG order on him and threatened to lock him up if he spoke out about it.

How does 20% of the most strategic asset of the United States of America end up in Russian hands when the FBI has an informant, a mole providing inside information to the FBI on the criminal enterprise?

Guess what happened soon after the sale was approved?

~145 million dollars in “donations” made their way into the Clinton Foundation from entities directly connected to the Uranium One deal.

Guess who was still at the Internal Revenue Service working the Charitable Division?

No other than, Lois Lerner.

Ok, that’s all just another series of coincidences, nothing to see here, right?

Let’s fast forward to 2015.

Due to a series of tragic events in Benghazi and after the 9 “investigations” the House, Senate and at State Department, Trey Gowdy who was running the 10th investigation as Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi discovers that the Hillary ran the State Department on an unclassified, unauthorized, outlaw personal email server.

He also discovered that none of those emails had been turned over when she departed her “Public Service” as Secretary of State which was required by law.

He also discovered that there was Top Secret information contained within her personally archived email. ( Let's not forget at least 10 CIA spies in china were killed by the Chinese because of the leaks and god knows what else occurred)

Sparing you the State Departments cover up, the nostrums they floated, the delay tactics that were employed and the outright lies that were spewed forth from the necks of the Kerry State Department, we shall leave it with this…… they did everything humanly possible to cover for Hillary.

Now this is amazing, guess who became FBI Director in 2013?

Guess who secured 17 no bid contracts for his employer (Lockheed Martin) with the State Department and was rewarded with a six million dollar thank you present when he departed his employer?

No other than James Comey.

Amazing how all those no-bids just went right through at State, huh?

Now he is the FBI Director in charge of the “Clinton Email Investigation” after of course his FBI Investigates the Lois Lerner “Matter” at the Internal Revenue Service and exonerates her.

Nope.... couldn’t find any crimes there.

Can you guess what happened next?

In April 2016, James Comey drafts an exoneration letter of Hillary Rodham Clinton, meanwhile the DOJ is handing out immunity deals like candy.

They didn’t even convene a Grand Jury.

Like a lightning bolt of statistical impossibility, like a miracle from God himself, like the true “Gangsta” Comey is, James steps out into the cameras of an awaiting press conference on July the 5th of 2016, and exonerates the Hillary from any wrongdoing.

Can you see the pattern?

It goes on and on, Rosenstein becomes Asst. Attorney General, Comey gets fired based upon a letter by Rosenstein, Comey leaks government information to the press, Mueller is assigned to the Russian Investigation sham by Rosenstein to provide cover for decades of malfeasance within the FBI and DOJ and the story continues.

FISA Abuse, political espionage..... pick a crime, any crime, chances are...... this group and a few others did it.

All the same players.

All compromised and conflicted.

All working fervently to NOT go to jail themselves.

All connected in one way or another to the Clintons.

They are like battery acid, they corrode and corrupt everything they touch.

How many lives have these two destroyed?

As of this writing, the Clinton Foundation, in its 20+ years of operation of being the largest International Charity Fraud in the history of mankind, has never been audited by the Internal Revenue Service.
Let us not forget that Comey's brother works for DLA Piper, the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation's taxes.

And,
See the person that is the common denominator to all the crimes above and still doing her evil escape legal maneuvers at the top of the 3 Letter USA Agencies? Yep, that would be Hillary R. Clinton.

WHO IS LISA BARSOOMIAN?

Let’s learn a little about Mrs. Lisa H. Barsoomian’s background.

Lisa H. Barsoomian, a US Attorney that graduated from Georgetown Law, is a protege of James Comey and Robert Mueller.

Barsoomian, with her boss R. Craig Lawrence, represented Bill Clinton in 1998.

Lawrence also represented:

Robert Mueller three times;

James Comey five times;

Barack Obama 45 times;

Kathleen Sebelius 56 times;

Bill Clinton 40 times; and

Hillary Clinton 17 times.

Between 1998 and 2017, Barsoomian herself represented the FBI at least five times.

You may be saying to yourself, OK, who cares? Who cares about the

work history of this Barsoomian woman?

Apparently someone does, because someone out there cares so much that they’ve “purged” all Barsoomian court documents for her Clinton representation in Hamburg vs. Clinton in 1998 and its appeal in 1999 from the DC District and Appeals Court dockets (?). 

Someone out there cares so much that the internet has been “purged” of all information pertaining to Barsoomian.

Historically, this indicates that the individual is a protected CIA operative. Additionally, Lisa Barsoomian has specialized in opposing Freedom of Information Act requests on behalf of the intelligence community. And, although Barsoomian has been involved in hundreds of cases representing the DC Office of the US Attorney, her email address is Lisa Barsoomian at NIH gov. The NIH stands for National Institutes of Health.

This is a tactic routinely used by the CIA to protect an operative by using another government organization to shield their activities.

It’s a cover, so big deal right? I mean what does one more attorney with ties to the US intelligence community really matter?

It deals with Trump and his recent tariffs on Chinese steel and aluminum imports, the border wall, DACA, everything coming out of California, the Uni-party unrelenting opposition to President Trump, the Clapper leaks, the Comey leaks, Attorney General Jeff Sessions recusal and subsequent 14 month nap with occasional forays into the marijuana legalization mix …. and last but not least Mueller’s never-ending investigation into collusion between the Trump team and the Russians.

Why does Barsoomian, CIA operative, merit any mention?

BECAUSE….

She is Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s WIFE….That’s why!!

Jaw dropping, shocking and extremely sad that this info has never been exposed-

There are 3 sequences in this one video:
1st sequence - catches half a dozen fish in one strike.
2nd sequence - plunges talons into deep water to grab the prey.
3rd sequence - captures a large fish that looks as if it weighs more than he does, then 'streamlines' the fish for less wind resistance in flight!
This is incredible to watch...……… such a graceful bird and efficient hunter!

"CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?"

Trey Gowdy nails it!

South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy recently responded to a CNN reporter’s question about the ban of transgenders from joining the U.S. armed forces. As Trey typically does so very well, he nailed it rather succinctly:

Question:
How can President Trump claim to represent all U.S citizens,
regardless of sexual orientation, when he banned transgenders from joining the military? Isn't that discrimination?

Trey Gowdy's Response:
“Nobody has a ‘right’ to serve in the Military. Nobody.
What makes people think the Military is an equal opportunity
employer? It is very far from it -- and for good reasons -- let me cite a few: Our Military regularly and consistently uses prejudice to deny citizens from joining for being too old or too young, too fat or too skinny, too tall or too short. Citizens are denied for having flat feet, or for missing or additional fingers."

Clearly annoyed by the reporter's attempt to trap him with the question, he went on to explain: "By the way, poor eyesight will disqualify you, as well as bad teeth. Malnourished? Drug addiction? Bad back? Criminal history? Low IQ? Anxiety? Phobias? Hearing damage? Six arms? Hear voices in your head? Self-identification as a Unicorn? Need a special access ramp for your wheelchair? Can't run the required course in the required time? Can't do the required number of push-ups? Not really a ‘morning person’ and refuse to get out of bed before noon? All of these can be legitimate reasons for denial."

"The Military has one job: Winning War. Anything else is a
distraction and a liability. Did someone just scream ‘That isn't
Fair’? War is VERY unfair, there are no exceptions made for
being special or challenged or socially wonderful. YOU
must change yourself to meet Military standards -- not the other way around.

"I say again: You don't change the Military. You must change
yourself. The Military doesn't need to accommodate anyone with special issues. The Military needs to Win Wars -- and keep our Country safe -- PERIOD! If any of your personal issues are a liability that detract from readiness or lethality, it is “Thank you for applying and good luck in future endeavors.”

“...any other questions?"

That pretty much covers it. Fact is that less than 20% of military “age” people in our country can qualify to join the military, due to some or all of the reasons described here.

Question:
How long does it take for the average person to become a soldier or sailor in the US Armed Forces?

Answer:
The average person will never become a soldier or sailor in the US Armed Forces!!!!!

HERE'S A TOTALLY PERSONAL COMMENTARY THAT YOU DON'T SEE HERE OFTEN.
You will have to provide your own factual support, of which there is plenty.
•    Large elements of the last two generations, particularly those educated in the "Liberal Arts" - as currently dispensed by "Liberal Arts Colleges", are poorly educated, especially in Common Sense and in the science of Deliberate thinking. Mainly...they emote!.
•    Significant elements of these same two generations have made an art form of "hooking up" on the spur of the moment, thereby contracting increasing cases of STD while further depleting their weak abilities at meaningful interpersonal relationships - thanks to addiction to their various screens...all leading to feelings of isolation, depression and (so sadly) suicide.
•    It appears from all the news that the "dinosaur" element of the male sex that could not keep its hands and other parts to themselves have given way to the "whus" element of current "male-dom"...who have been so out-played by "female-hood" that they can't find their other parts without Viagra or Cialis or whatever. Meanwhile, "female-hood" (not "womanhood" until they stop aborting their babies) has discovered "Me-Too", decades  late, which will soon be followed by a male "Not Me" and Not You" trend. And the birth rate in America will continue to decline as psychological health declines.
•    The recent and continuing spectacle revolving about USSC nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh reminds me of a very apt term for the involved Democrats and a few RINOS, originally and finally applied to the tobacco companies in the 1960's:
"DISSEMBLING MISCREANTS".

EVEN TO THE NON-CONSCIENTI LIKE MYSELF,
this man, who invented the Web in an open-form, was certainly well-meaning and charitable enough. He just did not know enough about human nature. And now correcting the personal privacy portion of the resulting massive problem will also not be enough. What about the ability to hack into massive financial systems and into the national electric grid at will?

The entire WWW needs to be reinvented in a new and closed format, with effective gate-ways for those who wish to use it legally and consistent with the legitimate needs of Society.

As I said above, I'm one of the non-conoscienti, so don't look to me for help.

MORE ON THE CRISIS OF THE CLERGY - NOT OF THE LAITY.
This is a distinction with a very important difference.
The crisis of the Clergy is the Disease.
The changes in the actions of the Laity are the symptoms.
And yet the Clergy - specifically the leadership, the Magisterium - is not addressing what I deeply believe is the pathophysiology of the Disease.
See two articles in the current edition of the National Catholic Register (Sept. 30 -  Oct. 13, 2018), clearly a reliable conservative voice of the Church.
•    "'Culture Of Predation' And Seminaries" (p3).
•    "Archbishop Ganswein: Current Crisis Is Catholic Church's Own 9/11" (p9).
The conservative Clergy leadership seems to assume the moral legitimacy and the eternal relevance to human beings of the Church prohibitions regarding celibacy and regarding a related sexual life for its Clergy - and even regarding the existence of a biologic basis for a condition of homosexuality. In its application to its Clergy and to its priests in formation, this seems to me analogous to denying the central role of Insulin in Diabetes Mellitus or of Coronary Artery Disease in Myocardial Infarctions. In my opinion, this is the Disease.The reaction of the Laity, the Body of the Church, is the symptom...ready to resolve when the disease is properly addressed.
And I still hope and pray for Pope Francis.

"TRUE, TRUE, AND UNRELATED".
I did not see or hear Prof. Ford's testimony.
I did hear and see a substantial part of Judge Kavanaugh's testimony. I can give Prof. Ford the benefit of the doubt: that she was attacked 35 years ago.

I clearly believe Judge Kavanaugh's testimony, given in a state of rage that had me hoping that he would not have a heart attack then and there.

Hasn't anybody heard of "True, True, and Unrelated?"
In fact, it has long been recognized that "eye witnesses" can be the bane of a prosecutor's case, sometime leading to a reversal years after incarceration. An "eye witness" can at times so totally convince him/herself of the accuracy of their experience that they will not consider the possibility of an error - and can even pass a "lie detector test". I believe this to be the likely case here.

Meanwhile,the dissembling miscreants on the Far Left and their feckless fellow travelers continue their charade. They will regret it.

The 10 Most Destructive Americans of My 8 Decades

America has undergone enormous change during the nearly eight decades of my life. Today, America is a bitterly divided, poorly educated and morally fragile society with so-called mainstream politicians pushing cynical identity politics, socialism and open borders. The president of the United States is threatened with impeachment because the other side doesn’t like him. The once reasonably unbiased American media has evolved into a hysterical left wing mob. How could the stable and reasonably cohesive America of the 1950s have reached this point in just one lifetime? Who are the main culprits? Here’s my list of the 10 most destructive Americans of the last 80 years.

10) Mark Felt – Deputy director of the FBI, aka “Deep Throat” during the Watergate scandal. This was the first public instance of a senior FBI officially directly interfering in America’s political affairs. Forerunner of James Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and Andrew McCabe.

9) Bill Ayers– Represents the deep and ongoing leftist ideological damage to our education system. An unrepentant American terrorist who evaded punishment, he devoted his career to radicalizing American education and pushing leftist causes. Ghost wrote Obama’s book, “Dreams of My Father.”

8) Teddy Kennedy – Most folks remember Teddy as the guy who left Mary Joe Kopechne to die in his car at Chappaquiddick. The real damage came after he avoided punishment for her death and became a major Democrat force in the US Senate, pushing through transformative liberal policies in health care and education.  The real damage was the 1965 Hart-Cellar immigration bill he pushed hard for that changed the quota system to increase the flow of third world people without skills into the US and essentially ended large-scale immigration from Europe.

7) Walter Cronkite – Cronkite was a much beloved network anchor who began the politicalization of America’s news media with his infamous broadcast from Vietnam that described the Tet Offensive as a major victory for the Communists and significantly turned the gullible American public against the Vietnam War. In fact, the Tet offensive was a military disaster for the NVA and Viet Cong, later admitted by North Vietnamese military leaders. Decades later Cronkite admitted he got the story wrong. But it was too late.  The damage was done.

6) Bill and Hillary Clinton—It’s difficult to separate Team Clinton. Bill’s presidency was largely benign as he was a relative fiscal conservative who rode the remaining benefits of the Reagan era. But his sexual exploits badly stained the Oval Office and negatively affected America’s perception of the presidency. In exchange for financial support, he facilitated the transfer of sensitive military technology to the Chinese.  Hillary, a Saul Alinsky acolyte, is one of the most vicious politicians of my lifetime, covering up Bill’s sexual assaults by harassing and insulting the exploited women and peddling influence around the globe in exchange for funds for the corrupt Clinton Foundation. She signed off on the sale of 20% of the US uranium reserve to the Russians after Bill received a $500,000 speaking fee in Moscow and the foundation (which supported the Clinton’s regal lifestyle) received hundreds of millions of dollars from those who benefited from the deal.  Between them, they killed any honor that might have existed in the dark halls of DC.

5) Valerie Jarrett - The Rasputin of the Obama administration.  A Red Diaper baby, her father, maternal grandfather and father-in-law (Vernon Jarrett who was a close friend and ally of Obama mentor Frank Marshall Davis) were hardcore Communists under investigation by the U.S. government. She has been in Obama’s ear for his entire political career pushing a strong anti-American, Islamist, anti-Israeli, socialist/communist, cling-to-power agenda.

4) Jimmy Carter  - Carter ignited modern day radical Islam by abandoning the Shah and paving the way for Ayatollah Khomeini to take power in Tehran. Iran subsequently became the main state sponsor and promoter of international Islamic terrorism.  When Islamists took over our embassy in Tehran, Carter was too weak to effectively respond thus strengthening the rule of the radical Islamic mullahs.

3) Lyndon Johnson – Johnson turned the Vietnam conflict into a major war for America. It could have ended early if he had listened to the generals instead of automaker Robert McNamara. The ultimate result was: 1) 58,000 American military deaths and collaterally tens of thousands of American lives damaged; and 2) a war that badly divided America and created left wing groups that evaded the draft and eventually gained control of our education system.  Even worse, his so-called War on Poverty led to the destruction of American black families with a significant escalation of welfare and policies designed to keep poor families dependent on the government (and voting Democrat) for their well-being. He deliberately created a racial holocaust that is still burning today. A strong case could be made for putting him at the top of this list.

2) Barack Hussein Obama - Obama set up America for a final defeat and stealth conversion from a free market society to socialism/communism. As we get deeper into the Trump presidency, we learn more each day about how Obama politicized and compromised key government agencies, most prominently the FBI, the CIA and the IRS, thus thoroughly shaking the public’s confidence in the federal government to be fair and unbiased in its activities. He significantly set back race and other relations between Americans by stoking black grievances and pushing radical identity politics. Obama’s open support for the Iranian mullahs and his apologetic “lead from behind” foreign policy seriously weakened America abroad. His blatant attempt to interfere in Israel’s election trying to unseat Netanyahu is one of the most shameful things ever done by an American president.

1) John Kerry – Some readers will likely say Kerry does not deserve to be number one on this list. I have him here because I regard him as the most despicable American who ever lived.  After his three faked Purple Hearts during his cowardly service in Vietnam, he was able to leave the US Navy early. As a reserve naval officer and in clear violation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, he traveled to Paris and met privately with the NVA and the Viet Cong. He returned to the United States parroting the Soviet party line about the war and testified before Congress comparing American soldiers to the hordes of Genghis Khan. It was a clear case of treason, giving aid and comfort to the enemy in a time of war. We got a second bite of the bitter Kerry apple when as Obama’s secretary of state, he fell into bed with the Iranian (“Death to America”) mullahs giving them the ultimate green light to develop nuclear weapons along with billions of dollars that further supported their terrorist activities. Only the heroic Swift Vets saved us from a Manchurian Candidate Kerry presidency. Ultimately we got Obama.

Dishonorable Mentions! (Just missed the list)

John Brennan –Obama’s CIA director who once voted for Communist Gus Hall for president. A key member of the Deep State who severely politicized the CIA. Called President Trump treasonous for meeting with the president of Russia.

Jane Fonda – movie actress who made the infamous trip to Vietnam during the war in support of the Communists. She represents hard left Hollywood that has done so much damage to our culture.

Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin – Both revered entertainers helped usher in the prevailing drug culture. Joplin personally suffered the consequences. Karma’s a bitch.

Robert Johnson /BET – Helped popularize ho’s, bitches and pimps while making millions on great hits such as “Jigga my Nigga”, “Big Pimpin’”, “Niggas in Paris” and “Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z.”   Many scholars within the African American community maintain that BET perpetuates and justifies racism by adopting the stereotypes held about African Americans, affecting the psyche of young viewers through the bombardment of negative images of African Americans. Who can disagree?

Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, Jr./The New York Times – Once the gold standard of American journalism, the paper always had a liberal tilt and occasionally made bad mistakes. As the years have gone along, the paper has slid further and further left and today is virtually the primary propaganda arm of the increasingly radical Democrat Party. Still retains influence in Washington and New York.

George Soros – Jewish former Nazi collaborator in his native Hungary who as a self-made billionaire has poured hundreds of millions of dollars into left wing groups and causes. The damage he has caused is difficult to measure, but it’s certainly large. He has funded much of the effort to kill the Trump presidency.

Frank Marshall Davis - Anti-white, black Bolshevik, card-carrying Soviet agent.  Probable birth father and admitted primary mentor of young Barak Hussein Obama.                      

Frank Hawkins is a former US Army intelligence officer, Associated Press foreign correspondent, international businessman, senior newspaper company executive, founder and owner of several marketing companies and published novelist. He is currently retired in North Carolina.  fhawk852@gmail.com
Editor's note: the original version of this piece misspelled the names of Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin, and also implied that Hendrix was a drug addict, which the coroner's autopsy after his death clearly stated was not the case. AT regrets these errors.

And there is one other reason for the Democrats / Leftists - now one and the same - to employ these Salem Witch Trial tactics: to give the  Republican Senators from Alaska and Maine "cover" to vote against Judge Kavanaugh.
