Who's The Betrayer?

Let me start off with a caveat:

Kieran Michael Lalor, is a former social studies teacher, a national security activist and Marine Corps Veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom aggressively exploring a challenge to John Hall in New York's 19th Congressional District.
The reason for this is that Mr. Lalor basically calls Congressman John Hall a lying, traitorous sack of crap. And I agree. But for many Democratic congress critters that should come as no surprise.

That being said, Mr. Lalor has some interesting points to make in this article posted in the American Thinker.

All politics are local. But sometimes, local politics are a national bellwether.

Much has been said about the mendacious, full-page advertisement ran in the New York Times this week referring to Gen. David Petraeus as "General Betray Us." Democrats in Congress orchestrated the piece, and most have refused to condemn this baseless attack on a man who has devoted more than three decades to defending the people of the United States.

Incredibly, even Petraeus' own Congressman refused to defend him. Let's be clear: General Petraeus was born and raised in Cornwall, New York and he is a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. Both Petraeus' hometown and alma mater fall within New York's 19th Congressional District in the Hudson River Valley. The district is represented by Rep. John Hall, an anti-war Democrat who has been in office for nine months.

It looks like the Democrats are using the typical nine month gestation period for a late term partial birth abortion. They wait until shortly before delivery and then try to suck the brains out of someone who is unable to vigorously defend himself (as per Section 888, Article 88 of the US UCMJ).

One might wonder what kind of Congressman could sit back and watch in silence as his own District's favorite son is slandered by the cretins at MoveOn. But let's not be surprised by John Hall anymore.

Wonder no more. John Hall is a radical retread, lost in nuance and seeped in treason; a charter member of John Kerry's Band of Backstabbers.

Some background: Before eking out a victory in the historically conservative 19th District in 2006, John Hall was a singer with the 1970's band Orleans.

Orleans, for those of you too young to remember :

[...] is an American pop-rock band best known for its hits "Dance With Me" (1975), "Still the One" (1976) and "Love Takes Time" (1979). Orleans was formed in Woodstock, New York in February 1972 by guitarist/songwriter John Hall, vocalist/guitarist Larry Hoppen and drummer/percussionist Wells Kelly. In November of that year the group expanded to include Larry’s younger brother Lance on bass. Drummer Jerry Marotta later joined, thus completing the quintet.

I sincerely apologize to all heterosexuals for this link - please contact BC: The Imperial Torturer for Brain Bleach. Anything that comes out of Woodstock must be boiled, sanitized and deoderized before release from quarantine.

By the early 1980's, he was establishing himself as a reliable leftwing shill, making an anti-Nuke propaganda film with a repugnant gaggle of leftists and celebrities, including Jane Fonda herself. In 1991, he was a county legislator and voted to defeat a resolution declaring support for our troops during Operation Desert Storm. But Hall didn't stop there. By the late 1990's, he'd sailed his yacht to Cuba (an act that contravenes U.S. law, which Hall still hasn't explained). He enjoyed his trip to the dictatorship so much he wrote a song about it.

With MoveOn's support, Hall was swept into office by a perfect storm of anti-Republican sentiment, a weak incumbent and a neglectful media that failed to report on his radical ideals. But he needed a different plan to defend the seat, so despite his anti-military resume, he's pinned his re-election hopes on winning support from military veterans - because he knows we make up nearly one-fifth of the district's electorate. The DNC has played along, and Democrats put Hall on the House Veterans Committee; Nancy Pelosi even got him on to the Board of Visitors of West Point.

Once again we round up the usual suspects. No need to push, we've got plenty of rope...

Today, Hall's public persona is a carefully crafted masquerade -- at every opportunity, Hall sings the "supporting veterans" song, yet he's done nothing useful for us. He saw national attention after promising to withhold the bonuses of the Veterans Administration brass until the backlog of veteran's claims was reduced. But after the spotlight waned, so did Hall's interest in helping vets, and he quickly broke this promise.

The real John Hall has devoted his term to a U.S. defeat in Iraq. [Emphasis mine: this is a link to the Kos fever swamp so be prepared for madness] The real John Hall chose not to defend General Petraeus for the simple reason that he feared retribution from and the far left, which he knew are the lifeblood of his re-election campaign.

In 2008 Hall needs the votes of veterans, money and volunteers from MoveOn and the media to look the other way so the people in the district don't find out about the whole charade.

There is more to this article so please drop in on the American Thinker.

Mr. Lalor needs the moral and financial support of LC's everywhere. Let's help him defeat John Hall. Let Hall's next song be titled "You're No Longer The One."
