Treason? Really?

July 11, 2017

Sen. Tim Kaine, Hillary’s running mate in her losing campaign, actually said that Donald Trump Jr. may have committed treason by meeting with a Russian lawyer. Kaine is a windbag of foolish hyperbole and this is a perfect example of the ignorant rhetoric being spewed from the left.

First of all, Donald Trump Jr. was a private citizen at the time, not a government employee, who met with a “lawyer”, not a Russian “government official”, and all involved said nothing came from that meeting. There were no secrets or documents bandied about and there are no allegations of any type of agreements being made during that meeting.

Secondly, attempting to get dirt on Hillary is not a crime, a misdemeanor, or anything of the sort. It is just common campaign activity that Hillary and Bill (and Kaine) certainly know about. According to a Politico investigation, Ukrainian government officials were passing documents to Hillary’s campaign in an attempt to help undermine Trump’s campaign. Where is the outrage?

Thirdly, treason is a high crime and it is very rare for someone to be convicted of treason. The last person to be convicted of treason was Tomoya Kawakita, a Japanese-American sentenced to death in 1952 for tormenting American prisoners. Treason is much too serious of an offense to be thrown around indiscriminately for political purposes.

If Tim Kaine wants to accuse someone of treason, perhaps he should look to Jane Fonda. Her actions in Hanoi in 1972 during the Vietnam War fell within the parameters of being treasonous. Henry Mark Holzer’s book, “Aid and Comfort”, is a detailed study of Fonda’s actions and it clearly shows that a case for treason could be made against her.

Had Jane been a Republican or a conservative instead of a far-left liberal, it is easily conceivable that she would have been charged and convicted of treason, spending the rest of her life in prison instead of making millions and being treated as an American icon.

Tim Kaine should put at least one foot in reality. He can keep the other one is in his mouth.

Jane Fonda Again…and Again…and Again…

January 20, 2015

Scheduled to speak at the Weinberg Center for the Arts, Jane Fonda was met by former military members protesting her 1972 “alleged” aiding-and-abetting-the-enemy visit to Hanoi during the Vietnam War. She said she understands and it makes her sad, but if she really understood she would just stay away from public appearances.

She is lucky to have not been charged with treason back in ’72 and since there is no statute of limitations on treason, she remains lucky she is not being charged today – so far. Her appearances always bring protesters because Vietnam veterans cannot and will not forget her irresponsible actions they feel cost the lives of American soldiers and helped thwart peace negotiations.

Her actions have been rationally considered treasonous by many and the book “Aid and Comfort” by Henry Mark Holzer and Erika Holzer makes the case very well. She deliberately skirts the issue of any treasonous behavior while continuously offering weak apologies. At her latest appearance, she said: “It hurts me and it will to my grave that I made a huge, huge mistake that made a lot of people think I was against the soldiers.” People don’t just “think” she was against the soldiers; her words and actions, especially her radio broadcasts from Hanoi, put it on display. She also remained proud of her “mistake” for quite a while.

Instead of being charged with treason, Jane came home and was allowed to make millions with exercise videos and movies. Her attendance at a few Iraq war protests dredged up bad memories for many Vietnam vets and some of them now make sure her every appearance is protested so that people will not forget.

If Jane is tired of these protests that hurt her so much – that’s just too bad. She should stay home and be happy she’s not in jail. Every time she shows up in the press it dredges up hurtful memories for Vietnam vets. Sympathy should go to the vets, not “Hanoi” Jane.

Just Go Away, Jane

June 3, 2014

The far left hates the military and this is especially true of the liberal academia controlling our education system. Their pretense of respect for servicemen has been an attempt to make amends for the disgraceful way they treated military personnel during the Vietnam War. UCLA inviting Jane Fonda as a graduation commencement speaker shatters that pretense.

Vietnam vets are, understandably, upset. They will never forget the 1972 treasonable actions of Jane in North Vietnam which are clearly defined in Henry Mark Holzer and Erika Holzer’s factual book, Aid and Comfort. Fonda has offered a half-hearted apology for her actions but it is obvious that she, and the far left, continue to proudly view the incident as a high water mark of their protests.

Vietnam vets have been deeply insulted by Fonda’s escape from prosecution for treason. Her continued movie career and financial success from exercise videos poured salt in the wounds many vets suffered because of her actions. She was treated by the world press at the time as being representative of the view of all of America. Soldiers in the field as well as those at home could not help feeling hurt and abandoned because of her immature foolishness.

Liberal colleges across the nation continually bring in speakers who are an affront to the silent majority and American tradition. The more radical a speaker, the more welcome they are. Students brainwashed by liberal academia are encouraged to protest speakers not fitting the radical mold, so, the squeaky wheel often gets the grease with the cancelling of those speakers.

In this manner, former Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, politely backed out of speaking at Rutgers due to loud protests from a minority of close-minded students unwilling to hear from someone outside their protected political bubble. Jane Fonda lacks the class to do the same and will most certainly speak at UCLA in a shameless attempt to bask in the limelight of her protesting glory days.

Vietnam vets, understanding that justice will never be served to Jane, would like her to just go away. Is that too much to ask? For UCLA, unfortunately, it is.

Jane Fonda: Radio Expert

March 11, 2012

Jane Fonda joined with Robin Morgan and Gloria Steinem in calling for Rush Limbaugh to be pulled off the air for his remarks about a Georgetown law student. Jane has a lot of experience with offensive remarks over the radio, so perhaps her credentials should be remembered as she speaks out about Rush.

During the Vietnam War in 1970, Jane Fonda visited Hanoi, comforting our enemy and protesting US actions in Vietnam. While being treated as a hero by the North Vietnamese, she made approximately ten radio broadcasts denouncing American military and political leaders as war criminals. She also called for our soldiers in Vietnam to lay down their weapons and refuse military orders.

Jane followed her treasonous radio broadcasts with denials of torture being carried out on our prisoners of war held in North Vietnam. She naively accepted the propaganda fed to her by the North Vietnamese and called returning POWs testifying about torture “hypocrites and liars”. Her behavior went far beyond mere protesting and a very credible case  has been made for her to be brought up on charges of treason.

Unfortunately, treason charges were never brought against Jane for fear of causing more upheaval in the country during those turbulent times. Jane escaped prosecution and, instead, the country that she found so wrong rewarded her with millions of dollars from sales of exercise tapes. The infamous photos of Jane smiling and sitting on a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun (used to shoot down US planes) remain as a testament to her actions.

Those photos should resurface again as a reminder of Jane Fonda’s political acumen. Perhaps one of her radio broadcasts should be played alongside Rush’s to see which one is more offensive. Jane’s excuses and lame attempt at an apology fell very short of being anything more than an attempt to put her traitorous actions behind her. If she wants to now speak out against Rush’s radio show, she should be held accountable for her own radio show broadcasts from North Vietnam in 1970.

Beware Jane; there is no statute of limitations for the charge of treason.
