(MRS.) KERRY'S CASH CONNECTION
New York Post ^ | 3/09/04

Posted on 03/09/2004 12:58:04 AM PST by kattracks

Edited on 05/26/2004 5:19:58 PM PDT by Jim Robinson. [history]

March 9, 2004 -- To hear some folks tell it, families of the 9/11 victims have risen en masse to denounce President Bush for using brief images from Ground Zero in his campaign commercials. We have no doubt that the use of the images is appropriate - given that the president's leadership in the wake of 9/11, and his conduct of the War on Terror, are under drumbeat assault by John Kerry and the Democrats.

Comments about Heinz-Kerry are shocking.

It's not nice to make fun of the criminally insane.

And let's not talk bad about Teresa either.

Finally!

I've been reading threads about the Tides Foundation for days and I still learned something from this article. I had no idea they only had a few members which represented less than 1% of the family members. Interesting.

I think Freeper "Doug from Upland" might be responsible for getting this information to the Post.

Thanks Doug!

Finally is right. By the way, there were a couple items lately about the Gridiron dinner... I thought Dick Cheney had the funniest line. He commented that Kerry could not be there because he was attending a fundraising dinner... with Teresa. Looks like she is really spreading the cash around to help his campaign....

It just amazes me that the democrats stand so strongly behind John Kerry and that polls show that Kerry is in a dead heat, or winning, against Bush if the election were held today.

Democrats claim to have little or no use for the 'rich', yet Kerry and his wife are filthy 'rich'. Democrats unquestionably back Kerry as a war hero, purple heart recipient (without any documentary proof) to illustrate his bravery but DEMAND documentary evidence that Bush was not 'awol.' Democrats have no problem with their candidate's wife slandering our current commander in chief by distributing 'asses of evil' buttons to fellow democrats. The cause of their party seems to be greater than the love of their country. Democrats see all that is wrong about an ad that illustrates our President's resolve in being attacked but see nothing wrong in that the protesters were solicited and given talking points by the party officials.

I could go on and on and on.

Take note that whatever Kerry claims he would do as president his base will force him to cut and run from Iraq and Afghanistan. Because of the particular moneyed interests backing him, he is ideologically restrained from pursuing a foreign policy that promotes US interests -- unless he redefines that national interest as propping up dictators like the socialist Aristide.

Do you have a link to that thread?

As for the current article, I'm just sitting here scratching my head and wondering: What in the world motivates people like Teresa Heinz Kerry and George Soros?

There are some pretty obvious answers, but I think there's also something really weird & really deep-seated going on here. Why are they so intent on destroying the very system [of free markets and private property rights] by which they [or their families] have profited so obscenely?

It's almost like dealing with teenagers whose first instinct is to destroy things. Like the teenage boy who doesn't see a brand spanking new car that his Dad will have to pay for over the course of half a decade, but rather sees a gas cap which leads to a gas tank, and thinks to himself, "You know, if I lit an M80 and dropped it into the gas tank, I could blow the whole thing to smithereens..."

The thread I was reading yesterday:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1093316/posts?page=104#104

The thread started out about Hannity discussing the 9/11 ad fake outrage. It turned into a thread about getting the info out to the media.

Nasty John the Waffling French Undertaker, who is behind the atatacks on GWB's 9/11 ad, per both NewsMax & the American Spectator.

Kerry, who is personally endorsed by Yasser Arafat, Haiti's Aristide, Iran's Mullahs, Traitor "Red Jane" Fonda, Kim Jong Il, (& Kim Il Jong), Mugabe, Marxist thug Chavez of Venezuela, Castro of Cuba, & France's Jacques Chirac, is a weapon of mass economic destruction.

He'll destroy the troops in Iraq, the War on Terrorism,

& the U.S. stock market with all his negative talk and whiny-leftist-liberal sour-puss troop-bashing, Bush-bashing, America-bashing talk & self-aggrandizing, ultra-negative sourpuss whiny elitist personality.

This is great! I spoke to a NY POST reporter yesterday as well as other papers and news stations. They got the message and did the story.

Now, everyone can help. Start sending this article to your local news stations and newspapers. Get on the phone and demand that this be covered.

The Tides Foundation is big. It (the Tides Foundation) supports the "Peaceful Tommorow's" group, and it is the PT group that only has a few members.

From the original article, "an outfit called September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows - which, the group admits, has only a few dozen members and represents relatives of no more than 1 percent of the 9/11 victims."

Of course there will be editorials that recite easily demonstrated facts, but don't expect the media to make a story of the connection. After all, the news is involved in deliberate deception, and cannpt be reasonably expected to out itself.

But I'm not talking about a disloyalty to America so much as a desire to destroy the very idea of America, especially in light of the fact that some of the more prominent fruits of that idea* are their own immense, indeed staggering, personal fortunes.

*Or set of ideas, including, but not limited to: a general devotion to the preservation of liberty, a right to enter into contracts, and a right to own private property.

From Ben Johnson, Frontpagemag.com:

The Institute for Global Communications is another leftist communications facilitator that received Tides grant money. IGC, which during the 1990s was the leading provider of web technology to the radical Left, links to “recommended sites” such as the War Resisters League (a group whose purpose is enabling peaceniks to refuse to pay taxes) and the leftist American Friends Service Committee. Most disturbing is the link to Ramsey Clark’s International Action Center, which has supported Slobodan Milosevic and North Korean strongman Kim Jong-Il. The IAC is the force behind International ANSWER, which sponsored the major antiwar (and anti-Bush) rallies before the invasion of Iraq. When ANSWER was outed as a Communist organization, United for Peace and Justice, headed by longtime Communist Party member Leslie Cagan was created as a "moderate" alternative. UFPJ is also a Tides grant recipient.The Tides-funded “A Better Way Project,” which opposed war in Iraq, also coordinated efforts of United for Peace and Justice and the Win Without War Coalition. The celebrity-laden Win Without War Coalition, along with the Bill Moyers-funded Florence and John Schumann Foundation, ran full-page ads in the New York Times opposing the War on Terrorism. This will not be the last overlapping of far-Left causes.

Good job!! 

Another article:

Bush Ads in HeinzSight   Intellectual Conservative 3-8-04
"So, the next time John Kerry tells you that, “there is no excuse for special tax cuts for the rich,” try not to vomit. Unlike President Bush, who cuts taxes for those who actually pay taxes, Kerry’s friends seem to keep passing hundreds of millions around while protected by non-profit status. At least Teresa can buy humble John plenty of political friends without paying a penny in taxes. And... all this madness is subsidized by you, the taxpayer. Who says this election won’t be fun!"
