John Kerry's Monstrous Record on Civil Liberties
Submitted by: Richard W Watras Jr

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"For John Kerry, the specter of Attorney General John Ashcroft trashing Americans' civil liberties has been a useful campaign prop. In campaign stops, Kerry has promised to 'end the era of John Ashcroft and renew our faith in the Constitution.' In a Kerry administration, he promised the liberal group MoveOn in June 2003, 'there will be no John Ashcroft trampling on the Bill of Rights.' In his 2004 campaign book, A Call to Service, Kerry accuses Ashcroft and the Bush administration of 'relying far too much on extraordinary police powers.'"

"In contrast, Kerry positions himself as a civil libertarian—or at least as a proponent of a reasonable balance between liberty and security. 'If we are to stand as the world's role model for freedom, we need to remain vigilant about our own civil liberties,' Kerry writes in A Call to Service. He calls for 'rededicating ourselves to protecting civil liberties.'" [emphasis added] ...
-------

A classic example of a false dichotomy. There is no "balance", there is liberty, and there is oppression. Those proclaiming the need for "security" are actually proclaiming their desire for oppression.

"Flight crews and air marshals say Middle Eastern men are staking out airports, probing security measures and conducting test runs aboard airplanes for a terrorist attack." ...

"The marshal found the mirror had been removed and the man was attempting to break through the wall. The cockpit was on the other side."

"The second pilot said terrorists are 'absolutely' testing security."

"'There is a great degree of concern in the airline industry that not only are these dry runs for a terrorist attack, but that there is absolutely no defense capabilities on a vast majority of airlines,' the second pilot said."

And as long as you disarm your passengers, there will remain virtually no defensive capabilities.
 

Is The New York Times a Liberal Newspaper?

"OF course it is."

"The fattest file on my hard drive is jammed with letters from the disappointed, the dismayed and the irate who find in this newspaper a liberal bias that infects not just political coverage but a range of issues from abortion to zoology to the appointment of an admitted Democrat to be its watchdog. (That would be me.) By contrast, readers who attack The Times from the left - and there are plenty - generally confine their complaints to the paper's coverage of electoral politics and foreign policy."

"I'll get to the politics-and-policy issues this fall (I want to watch the campaign coverage before I conclude anything), but for now my concern is the flammable stuff that ignites the right. These are the social issues: gay rights, gun control, abortion and environmental regulation, among others. And if you think The Times plays it down the middle on any of them, you've been reading the paper with your eyes closed." ...

But they admit that they are biased, so that makes it okay.

"Big shots in the national gun-control debate may party or hang out black crepe paper Sept. 13, when a 10-year ban on assault weapons is expected to end."

"Area law enforcement officials expect it to be just another day on the streets."

"'I think it makes most police officers uncomfortable knowing the amount of fire power that is out there and available to the percentage of the population that would use it for evil purposes,' said David Lain, chief deputy of the Porter County's Sherrif's Department."

"'But I don't see that, ban or no ban, that it's going to affect what weapons the bad guys are able to get ahold of.'" ...

"'I haven't seen that the ban has made much of a difference,' Jeff Wells said. He is a 15-year veteran of the Lake County coroner's office, which processes about 80 homicide scenes each year in which firearms are involved." ...
 

This Is Kerry on Drugs

"For those who oppose the federal government's disastrous war on drugs, there are many things to dislike about the Bush Administration, not the least of which is its shameless – and dangerous – use of the war on terror to prop up the failed drug war and the accompanying $18 billion dollar bureaucracy. And there is no indication that four more years of a Bush presidency will offer anything but more of the same."

"But anyone who thinks a vote for John Kerry means a vote for a more liberalized approach to drug policy should think again. Candidate Kerry's choice for Homeland Security Advisor, Rand Beers, is a seasoned drug warrior who has already shown his loyalty to the well being of the drug war, no matter how many lives it destroys, or how many narco- terrorists are enriched along the way." ...

"Ohioans For Concealed Carry has learned that the Ohio Supreme Court, on a 6-1 vote with Justice Pfeifer dissenting, has issued an alternative writ of mandamus, declining Franklin Co. Sheriff Jim Karnes' request to have a lawsuit against him thrown out."

"The lawsuit, filed on April 9 by Josephine Lee, centers around Josephine's application with Sheriff Karnes for a Temporary Emergency License to carry a concealed handgun, as well as her standard application for a concealed handgun license. Karnes had argued that the court should dismiss the case."

"After learning of the court's decision Wednesday, attorney Ken Hanson told OFCC, 'I haven't received the Order yet, but an alternative writ usually means [Sheriff Karnes] is to show cause why he should not be ordered to do perform his duty under the law, and sets the briefing schedule for both sides.'" ...

"FIRST came semi-comic confusion. One minute he was alone in the woods, collecting beetles in glass jars, and then he saw police cars with lights flashing and officers running toward him yelling, 'Come out of there.' Baffled, he said the only thing that came into his mind: 'Me?'"

"Next came visceral fear. Officers pointed guns at his head from a few feet away and barked at him to take off his coat, throw it on the ground and lie face down on his belly. Then they slapped the handcuffs on."

"'My name is Harry Zirlin,' he said, though no one had asked. 'I live at 235 Rock Creek Lane, corner of Dell and Rock Creek. I am collecting beetles.'"

"'Do you have a knife?' an officer demanded."

"'Absolutely, I have a knife,' he responded. 'I use it for prying bark off dead logs.'"

"In one sense, that was the whole story. The police soon removed the handcuffs and apologized for inconveniencing him." ...

GUNMEN are terrorising small businesses across Sydney for as little as a few hundred dollars because they are seen as 'soft targets'."

"Criminals are turning their backs on targets such as banks because of their improved security."

"Instead, they are committing multiple robberies on suburban shops, threatening their owners with firearms -- often carrying out more than one crime a day."

"In the latest attack, a man wielding a handgun held up an IGA store on Bridge St, Penshurst, about 4.35pm yesterday."

"An investigation by The Daily Telegraph reveals:"

"AT least 21 hold-ups with guns have been committed in the past two weeks;"

"RETAILERS in Sydney's inner-west are calling for police action over recent attacks ..." ...

"The testimony came today at the start of the second week of a criminal grand jury hearing into the death of Cardenas, 43, by a state narcotics agent who had mistaken him for a parolee."

"Earlier in the morning, agent Michael Walker, who shot Cardenas in the back, finished his testimony, again giving statements that appeared to contradict earlier statements to investigators."

"The woman, Karen Muratore, is believed to have been working for Elite Guard Force Security for a two-year period before she shot dead an alleged robber in the Moorebank Hotel carpark just before 11am."

"Witnesses said in the lead-up to the fatal shot, the man had struck her in the face with a knuckle-duster while allegedly trying to rob her of the pub's takings for the day." ...

"Ms Muratore would also be unable to argue that she was simply protecting the hotel or its takings for the day, Mr Gibson added."

While police are a more visible presence on the streets, station houses and officers on patrol have been frequent targets for insurgents." ...

Yet, on an early autumn morning I found myself at a rifle range with a .22 at my shoulder, and deputy editor David Petzal next to me saying, 'Just take your time.' A week earlier, I had lucked into a women’s hunt for mule deer in New Mexico. I had absolutely no hunting experience, no rifle skills, and no history in shooting sports whatsoever. But the hunt welcomed novices, and I was curious. After showing me how to sight in, Petzal took me through the anatomy of a rifle, showed me three shooting positions (prone, kneeling, and offhand), and had me fire at targets from 25, then 50 yards. ..." ...

The mother of a 14-year-old boy who was fatally shot three days ago says a friend of her son told her the shooting was an accident.

Sheree Good says a 13-year-old boy told her that he and her son, Anthony Oliver, had been playing with a 25-caliber pistol.

Police say they received calls from teenagers about eight p-m Friday saying Oliver had been shot with a BB gun. But when police arrived they found the pistol, a matching shell casing and bloody gloves. Oliver died less than an hour later at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

Good says she went to the home of the alleged shooter in search of answers, and the boy told her the two had been playing.

Prosecutors are still investigating whether to charge the boy who allegedly fired the gun.

His friend was dragged out of the vehicle, beaten up and thrown into a stormwater drain.

The assailants stole Mxokozeli's service pistol and fled in his white Isuzu bakkie, registration number DDP936EC, with a white canopy.
