I just found the following article from a library database:

The Boston Herald, June 1, 1997 p067
Raising specter of 'War' - Criminals threaten world, Kerry warns.

Bob Clark.

Full Text: COPYRIGHT 1997 Boston Herald

"The New War: The Web of Crime That Threatens America's Security" by Sen. John Kerry (Simon & Schuster)

Sen. John Kerry, who was assistant district attorney of Middlesex County way back when, casts a much larger net in "The New War."

Kerry, former chairman and, until recently, ranking Democrat on the Senate Subcommittee on Terrorism, Narcotics and International Operations, warns that while Americans obsess about street crime and random violence, we overlook the far greater threat posed by global criminals and terrorists.

Kerry identifies the Big Five of international criminals: the Italian Mafia, Russian Mafiya, the Japanese yakuza, the Chinese triads and the Colombian cartels. And there are smaller but still dangerous players around the world, including Mexico and Nigeria.

What has changed in recent years, Kerry asserts, is that crime has gone global. The mobs are more organized, violent and powerful than ever, and they often work together.

The global mobs are mixed up in drug smuggling, immigration scams, computer theft and much more. Chemical and biological terrorism are potential threats, and nuclear terrorism is not unthinkable.

According to Kerry's thesis, we are engaged in nothing less than war with global criminals.

"Global crime," he writes, "poses not one but a phalanx of threats to our national security - by eroding confidence, poisoning honesty, depleting revenue; by mocking borders, currencies, passports; and worst of all, by continually succeeding."

What's needed to stop global criminals, Kerry argues, is global cooperation, "a revolution in the way we conceive of every aspect of the law, from jurisdiction to punishment."

That will require sacrifice by everyone. While no nation should give up sovereignty, he believes, we must find ways to establish consistent laws and a consistent system of punishment. We might have to give up a little privacy, for example, to avert anarchy on the Internet.

Beating the global criminals won't be easy and it won't be cheap. Kerry says we can't do it alone but maintains only America has the power and prestige to lead the way.

The most serious task is fighting and winning the war on drugs at home, he asserts. His recommendations, alas, sound familiar: more money for treatment, education, after-hours school programs and early intervention programs.

Losing the war to the global criminals is not a pretty prospect. What's at stake, according to Kerry, "is nothing less than the fate of civilization."

Here's another blurb:

St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO), April 11, 1997 p02A
PEOPLE. (News)(People Column)

Full Text: COPYRIGHT 1997 Pulitzer Publishing Co.

Quick: Which Democratic politician from Massachusetts is feeling heat from his ex-wife over his marriage annulment petition?

Rep. Joseph Kennedy is not alone. Sen. JOHN KERRY has applied to the Archdiocese of Washington for an annulment of his marriage to Julia Thorne. (They split in 1988; Kerry later remarried.)

Thorne has written the archdiocese opposing Kerry's petition; she says it demeans their relationship and their two children. And she has written a blurb for "Shattered Faith," in which Sheila Rauch Kennedy blasts the church's annulment policy.

Kerry is also a CINO (Catholic in Name Only) just like Teddy Kennedy. I don't think the Massachuesetts bishops will let him receive communion because he backs abortion.

And yet another blurb:

The Boston Herald, May 14, 1997 p008
Inside Track. Gayle Fee; Laura Raposa.

Full Text: COPYRIGHT 1997 Boston Herald

Hydrant removal gets Heinz out of parking pickle

We don't know about you, but the Track is going to rest easier tonight knowing that Sen. John Kerry and his wife, Teresa Heinz, will soon be able to park the Picklemobile right smack in front of their door at 19 Louisburg Square.

Because that pesky fire hydrant - which fueled a flurry of bad press for the ketchup heiress last year when she was bagged blocking it with her white Jeep Cherokee - is being relocated around the corner to Pinckney Street.

The Boston Fire Department confirmed yesterday that a request for the hydrant relocation came in from the Heinz-Kerrys less than a week ago.

"The chief went up there himself and didn't see any problem with moving it," said a BFD spokesman.

Talk about prompt service! Quick as you could say "the slooooooow ketchup," the jaw-clenching racket of jackhammers began blasting through Louisburg Square.

Of course Mrs. Heinz was not in residence at the time.

Kerry's people say the senator and the missus figured that the city could easily move the black-and-white hydrant around the corner since the sewer rats were in the neighborhood fixing a hinky sewer connection across the street on Pinckney.

And besides, the hydrant - which caused such painful parking problems for Teresa's HJ 57 - is such an eyesore!

No word on the ketchup queen's take on the dozen orange-and-white construction barrels lined up and down Pinckney.

And - may we add - taking up precious parking spaces!

"Now they'll be able to park directly in front of the door without complaints from neighbors," sniffed one fired-up Square-ite.

Kerry's spokesman, Michael Meehan, told the Track the removal of the funky-looking fireplug - not to mention the earlier relocation of a grating Boston Edison grate - would improve the $3 million manse's "pictorial environment."

"At least the photos will look better," he joked.

We relish the thought!

I have seen pictures of him and Danny Ortega together on several seperate occasions.

During the period from 1979-1985 quite a number of leftist politicians in the USA were active fund-raisers, supporters and apologistas- PERIQUACO's- for the Sandinistas.

I am curious if Kerry was a member of this leftist group.

Another tidbit:

The Boston Herald, June 15, 1997 p010
INSIDE TRACK: Kerry-Heinzs bow to parking pressure. Gayle Fee; Laura Raposa.

Full Text: COPYRIGHT 1997 Boston Herald

Word from Louisburg Square is that Sen. John Kerry and Teresa Heinz led a pre-emptive strike the other night and got word to a neighborhood meeting that they would abide by the two parking-space limit.

Wonders never cease . . .

The Square-ites, steamed about the Kerry-Heinz's piggy parking practice of cramming cars into four spaces, sat down the other night to sound off about their neighbors.

But, before anyone could grouse about the haughty Heinz-Kerrys, an F.O.K. piped up saying that the residents of No. 19 would bow to pressure and only use the Square's customary - but not mandated - two-car parking allowance.

Which is the least they could do considering the couple's Fire Plug Relocation Project (also known as Little Dig) and repairs on a hinky sewer line have wreaked havoc on the elite enclave for weeks. We think Miss Manners would agree.

Kerry's spin on the meeting was that it was called "to deal with a parking issue at the opposite end of the Square."

"It was related to the two condos down there," said the senator's spokesman, Michael Meehan.

Hmmmm . . .

But we hear what really got the neighbors fired up was that Kerry had been heard joking that since he and Teresa had that pesky fire hydrant removed from in front of their palatial pad, they now had five spaces. Ha. Ha.

Just call them the Beacon Hill Pills!

When Kerry was speaking with Greta last night, he refered to Vietnam as Nixon's war. He continued his diatribe by attacking Oliver North...then going on to practically indict the Reagan administrations policy in Central America, as if no such communist threat ever existed. While Senator Kerry voted in favor of the use of force resolution in Iraq this time around, he did not vote for the liberation of Kuwait in 1991. With his recent backpeddling and lack of support for funding the troops, I think it is obvious that Kerry is a standard left-wing liberal who thinks America is too powerful. From his support of policies that have neutered US intelligence to his view that the US should be subserviant to the UN, John Kerry is not a president to be trusted.

Operation Dewey Canyon III began on April 18, 1971

I actually was at that rally, as a child and not as a supporter or participant or anything like that. It was a beautiful, warm spring weekend and the protestors were camped all around the Washington Monument. They had the usual veterans burning their medals and raggedy looking bum/protestors everywhere. It gave me an idea of the strength and the limitations of protests, Kerry and his gang really took over the mall area, but then again, outside the downtown area, you would never have known they were there.

Democratic Fund-Raiser Chung Is Arraigned.

Full Text: COPYRIGHT 1998 San Francisco Chronicle

Democratic fund-raiser Johnny Chung was arraigned yesterday on federal charges of making illegal campaign contributions and ordered to return to court next week to enter his plea.

Chung's lawyer said the Taiwanese-born businessman will plead guilty to charges that include funneling $20,000 in illegal donations to the Clinton-Gore campaign and $8,000 to the campaign of Senator John Kerry, D-Mass.

The Boston Herald, Sept 2, 1998 p008

Job seeker is model constituent. (News) Gayle Fee; Laura Raposa. Full Text: COPYRIGHT 1998 Boston Herald

Question of the day: Who was the statuesque blonde strutting out of Sen. John Kerry's palatial Louisburg Square manse late Monday night when Kerry's wife, heiress Teresa Heinz, was on Nantucket?

We are told she is a 22-year-old Harvard student and former model who, Kerry's people claim, was dropping off a resume.

Our spies on the Square say the stunning Southern gal, dressed in oh-so-chic black, arrived at Kerry's townhouse around 11:15 p.m. and left just before the clock struck 12.

Not unlike Cinderella.

Which leads us to ask: In the age of Monica Lewinsky, is it smart for a senator with presidential aspirations to be entertaining attractive women when the wife is away?

"He was very kind to me. He offered to pass my resume along," the young woman told the Track.

The Georgetown grad said she was not at Kerry's home at midnight - more like 10:45 p.m. - and that she would have dropped off the resume earlier except that it was locked in her brother's apartment.

Both the young woman and Kerry's people insist the encounter was completely innocent. They said the senator met her on Nantucket earlier this summer, then again last weekend.

She supposedly mentioned she was looking for a job and he told her to drop off a resume.

Which she did after attending a party for her brother in Boston the other night.

"They met, she mentioned the fact she was looking for a job and she dropped off her resume," said Kerry's spokesguy, Jim Jones. "It was like 15 minutes."

Jones also claims the meeting between Kerry and the young woman happened earlier in the evening, after the senator returned home from having drinks with a Globe reporter at the fab Four Seasons hotel.

"He had drinks until about 9:15, went home, had dinner, then she came by," Jones said.

The senator was on the phone to his wife about 11:15, Jones said, and in bed by midnight.

Jones said there's nothing going on between Kerry and the young woman.

"The tone and appearance of that would be horrendous in the current climate," he said.

File under: Resume central.

John Kerry must be publicly confronted by tens of THOUSANDS of U.S. Catholics (including the bishops of Mass. and Washington)to oppose his culture-of-death agenda for America and the world. This man of iniquity and perdition must be confronted for his criminal sacrilege against our holy Catholic faith. If he does not repent and recant publicly for his pro-abortion insanity, he MUST be excommunicated. The bishops MUST defend the Church from demonic moral insanity, sacrilege, and puerile disobedience.

John Kerry throws his Service Medals over the barricade at the White House in protest of the war effort

"I'm not proud of these medals. I'm not proud of what I did to receive them. A whole year, we never took one prisoner alive. Just wasted them."


Kerry's 1971 book later became the focus of controversy because of the cover photo which showed of veterans hoisting an upside-down US flag.

Throw as I say, not as I do: On that same day he led members of VVAW in a protest during which they threw their medals and ribbons over a fence in front of the U.S. Capitol. Kerry later admitted the medals he threw were not his. To this day they hang on the wall of his office.

Now that is hypocracy, and not acceptable, and shameful.

After 30 years, I dont care if you were for the vietnam war, or against it, but you cant have it both ways. Pretending to throw away his medals and then having them displayed in his office is dispicable.

from the National Park Service Statue of Liberty website

(Source: Photograph Collection of the American Museum of Immigration, Liberty Island, U.S. Department of the Interior, NPS)



Tim MacCormick of New Jersey and fourteen other members of the Vietnam Veterans Against the War, on the afternoon of December 26, 1971, arrived on Liberty Island by the Circle Line boat along with other tourists. But, when the last return ship to Manhattan sailed that evening, the veterans were not aboard. Instead, just before closing time, they hid among the exhibit partitions, building materials, and storage closets which were lying about the monument's base while work was being finished on the American Museum of Immigration. When NPS personnel made their 7:30 evening check-up of the statue, they found that the veterans had seized control of the landmark and barricaded the three ground floor entrances. The men inside refused to speak to or admit any Park Service people, but on the door they posted a typewritten statement addressed to President Richard M. Nixon:

Each Vietnam veteran who has barricaded himself within this international symbol of liberty has for many years rationalized his attitude to war. . . .We can no longer tolerate the war in Southeast Asia. . . .Mr. Nixon, you set the date [for leaving Vietnam], we'll evacuate. [13]

On December 27, twenty-one National Park police flew to Liberty Island from Washington where they were joined by New York City police and Coast Guardsmen. These security forces stood by while the government attempted to reach a peaceful compromise with the occupiers. They were told that they would be permitted to picket and protest on the island if they would simply vacate the statue, allowing it to reopen to visitors. The veterans rejected the offer, flew the United States flag upside down from the statue's crown, and waited. Law enforcement officers also waited. During that day thousands of disappointed tourists were told at the Battery that they could not go out to the statue. Congresswoman Bella Abzug (Democrat-New York) sent a telephone message of support to the demonstrators.

(Source: Photograph Collection of the American Museum of Immigration, Liberty Island, U.S. Department of the Interior, NPS)

Meanwhile, United States Attorney Whitney North Seymour, Jr., went before District Court Judge Lawrence Pierce to request an injunction directing the veterans to open the doors, leave the statue except during regular visiting hours, and permit Park Service personnel and tourists to enter. On the morning of December 28 Judge Pierce issued a temporary restraining order, instructing the protestors to leave the statue "forthwith." Two hours later, after conferring with their lawyers, the veterans removed the barricades from the entrances and emerged with "clenched fists raised." They had cleaned up their debris and caused no significant damage to the property. The monument was reopened to the public, with the first ferry-load of visitors arriving at 2:15 that afternoon.

Tim MacCormick issued a statement to the press explaining why they had picked this particular target:

The reason we chose the Statue of Liberty is that since we were children, the statue has been analogous in our minds with freedom and an America we love.

Then we went to fight a war in the name of freedom. We saw that freedom is a selective expression allowed only to those who are white and maintain the status quo.

Until this symbol again takes on the meaning it was intended to have, we must continue our demonstrations. . . . [14]

In April 1974, twenty members of a radical student organization, the Attica Brigade, copied the example of the Vietnam Veterans Against the War. Barricading themselves inside the statue, they protested social injustice in the United States and called for the ouster of President Nixon. They finally left the monument when a force of twenty National Park Police walked toward the barred doors with the intention of breaking in. No one was injured, nor was there any property damage. At a later news conference a spokesman for the protestors proclaimed that the statue is "a facade put up to make people believe that the ideals of democracy actually exist." [15]

Two years after the Attica Brigade sit-in, the Vietnam Veterans Against the War were back. On June 6, 1976, they occupied the statue, and on the following day, when they refused to comply with a court order to leave, NPS police arrested and removed them. Again, the statue escaped with minimal damage. [16]

That's odd. He was there at the same time I was and I distinctly remember LBJ doing the buildup. American casulties declined under Nixon.

On that same day he led members of VVAW in a protest during which they threw their
medals and ribbons over a fence in front of the U.S. Capitol.

Kerry later admitted the medals he threw were not his.
To this day they hang on the wall of his office.


IF THE MEDALS that were directly and personally awarded to Kerry have been on the
wall of his office ONE DAY since he supposedley threw them over the fence of the US Capitol...
he should be PUBLICALLY SHAMED by every person from SOUTH BOSTON who (still living)
has served in the US military.

Anyone who hasn't yet read "Making The Corps" by Thomas Ricks...should read it...
even for simply learning about the PROUD military heritage of South Boston.
