Swift Justice


Bold John sailed forth in his faux scow, 
Till the Swiftees fired across his bow;
And legions of irate attorneys,
Could not defend Cambodian journeys,
Nor stories of his fabled hat,
So voters sensed they smelled a rat.
And while the networks denied them prime,
The Swiftees surely got their time.

While John screamed it was all a smear,
O’Neill came across sincere,
And forced Big John to duck the press,
To run, to hide from his specious mess.
But relentless those old Swiftee guys,
They bit, hung on, exposed his lies.
These brave old warriors once again
Stood for their country, for their kin.

They made us all look one more time
At the traitor who’d charged them with crime,
And gave false witness to their deeds
For nothing more than political needs.
It’s a smear proclaimed the New York Times
Those liars all committed crimes.
Chris Matthews raged, foamed at the mouth,
Still the turncoat’s campaign headed south.

So the Swiftboat Veterans’ charges stuck
And made poor John a sitting duck.
He had no answers, no glib replies,
To cover up his treasonous lies;
That made us think, our minds aware,
The Swiftees had some truth in there;
What if he’d faked his combat valor,
Were all those medals tinged with pallor?

Dan Rather would not pay them heed,
But still the Swiftees made John bleed.
The mainstream pundits called them liars;
But no lefty slant could staunch these fires.
The blazes that these Swiftees set
Were burning John Boy’s ass you bet;
And those Swiftboat fires just burned away
Till they fried John’s ass on election day.

Now all you heroes on that Wall
Take solace seeing Kerry fall.
This scheming pol who stained your name
Has been denied his claim to fame.
The Swiftees stood and did their best,
Denied the traitor his life’s quest.
You can rest in peace our honored kin
Your honor restored by honorable men.

THE U.S. SENATE’S REPORT AND: 9/25/06 SUMMARY. In 2006 the U.S. Senate’s stated many DOD “EXPERIMENTS THAT WERE DESIGNED TO HARM” disabilities are still not in their victim’s needed for treatment records! This 12/8/94 Report “Lessons Spanning Half a Century" lists many Dept. of Defense (DOD) deliberate “to harm” experiments on “hundreds of thousands”!![8] Documented are 50 years of 1940's mustard gas & lewisite and 1945-1962 radiation exposures. The 1987 U.S. Supreme Court STANLEY 1958 drug [3] 1950's-1970's bacteria and viruses injury trials! Conducted in direct disobedience of the DOD Secretary’s 1/26/53 order![2] With the Secretary’s of all Services and DOD Research and Development (R&D) Board then known!! Following past practice they continue under the cover of our nation’s wars. This is proven by the Report’s identified Causes ongoing withheld R&D “to harm” Effects. The U.S. Judicial Branch’s final authority on questions of law is Given to the Secretary of the Dept. Of Veterans Affairs’s (VA); 511(a)![4]&[9] A final decision with NO APPEAL authority on experiment issues. On those that can be appealed, "THE COURT MAY NOT REVIEW THE SCHEDULE OF RATINGS FOR DISABILITIES OR THE POLICIES UNDERLYING THE SCHEDULE"![6] This is its 1994 Chief Judge’s no teeth statement! A 1988 Court established [4] Veterans Judicial Review Act (VJRA) answer to the 1987 STANLEY decision [3] that Congress is responsible. A for Veterans only severely experiment restricted U.S. Article I, NOT Judicial Branch Court. PLEASE VOTE THE U.S. CONGRESS ACCOUNTABLE FOR THESE DELIBERATE “DESIGNED TO HARM” ACTS. In particular, your members on the U.S. Senate and House Judicial, Veterans and Armed Services Committees! Withheld from the generally accepted medical community, from the victims and not in the “MAY NOT REVIEW” “SCHEDULE” is the KEY evidence. This is the DOD’s AT-THE-TIME R&D protocol recording of each formally “designed” experiment’s revealing how, when, where Causes with their resulting medical Effects (C&E)!! Withheld are each separate service’s scheduled and conducted “to harm” C&E “disabilities”. They are co-ordinated and recorded by the DOD’s R&D Board and its successors.[2] Developed from the results of these individual “to harm” trials are the overall DOD protections. Even after this 12/8/94 U.S. Senate alert a now 12 more years from the 50 years of omitted “POLICIES” revealing evidence!! Harmfully prevented is each subject’s in & after service unique “HARM” specific, medical evaluation and follow-up treatment. Prevented is every experiment group’s overall 62 years of “disabilities” lessons learned. The injured victim never the wiser becomes! The 1973 National Personnel Records Center fire destroyed most of the past subject’s service documents. Congress’s 1974 Privacy Act censored the names of all witnesses from surviving and future records. A December 8, 1994 U.S. Senate response [8] to the 8 December 1988 VJRA [4] answer to the 1987 STANLEY [3] is a to-date not realized: 1. Accountability for the DOD now MANY order disobeyed HARM EXPERIMENTS! And 2. That the injured subjects be allowed an unrestricted Judicial Branch redress, i.e., NOT be stopped as an "INCIDENT TO SERVICE" [1]. 1994 reported is that these subjects are DOD prevented from recognizing that this "TO HARM" is "associated with their military service". As after service to-date duplicated through the VA. This is by its final decision authority, the VJRA’s “may not review” the “underlying” R&D with its resulting destroyed, censored and withheld in-the-record evidence. A no repeating of the STANLEY are you OK follow-up. Then identified was this 1958 experiment. There will be no STANLEY to the U.S. Supreme Court bypassing of the VA’s “disabilities” process. Captured is every “TO HARM" subject. All within a 15 to 20+ years of a “may not” MUST BE COMPLETED greatly VJRA extended no appeal procedure. In 2006 there is no accountability for the 1953 order disobeyed! Withheld From U.S. Veterans and Military Personnel Are an Ongoing 53 Years of Experimentation “To Harm” Protection Rights.[2] Lost Are Those Before Service Rights That All Other U.S. Citizens Including Rapists and Murderers Keep.[5] A justice denied for the greater good end justifies the means! Thereby approved is our children and grandchildren as PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE in-service “DESIGNED TO HARM” guinea pigs.
