Just on the Fox News Channel.............
A Heinz-Kerry, Kenneth Lay, Enron connection.
It seems that Kenneth Lay was not only a guest of John and Teraaazzzaaa at their Georgetown Mansion, BUT.....he was on the board of directors of the Heinz Foundation. In turn, Terrraaaazzza had over $250,000 in Enron stock.
I wonder if we should tell Michael Moore ??? :-)
Stay tuned. This could be interesting..........
Yea, but it wasnt Halliburton
I don't think there was any politician that Ken Lay didn't try to suck up to.
That's a reach. Unless you've got some inside info that the Heinz-Kerrys influenced Lay or helped him in some specific way, you should drop this. IMO.
So they owned some stock???
They sold it...they made money
WELCOME TO AMERICA
Hah! And I wonder if she sold her stock just before it went down? If so, maybe she can share a prison cell with Martha, and they can swap orange jumpsuit fashion tips.
And (OMG) Bush called him Kenny Boy...lol
Whoa Dude! This is dy-no-mite. I will stay tuned.
But in the mind of a Leftist, perceptions trump truth everytime. Note how only the mention of word: Halliburton, causes them to make vast assumptions about Bush/Cheney. Perhaps we can get to the point on the right when all we have to do to scare a lib is say: Enron/Ken Lay!
And this is breaking news?
Must be a slow news day.
Perhaps someone could come up with a completer list of people that owned and sold this stock.
I am sure it would cover every political party.
This is not news...
Which speaks volumes about the fundamentals underlying that business.
It isn't news on BUSH or KERRY
I think it is funny that everyone freaks when the Dems do this to Bush...but now there is some connection with Kerry...and it is breaking news?
What goes around....oh never mind
When did she sell her 250,000 in Enron stock, and who told her to sell it?
I want the meeting notes!! What did Kerry and Lay discuss??? There oughta be an investigation!!
Her Most Royal Highness:"Time to contol my peons in the US Senate.
Fetch me our stolen FBI files, now.
Ooops, I mean our (stolen) FBI 'badges of honor'""
While this info is basically a yawner, I gotta wonder why a Senate investigation of Enron, headed by Joe Liebermann, has gone nowhere in the last couple of years.
Maybe that point can be reached, but unless there's more there to this story, that point hasn't been reached yet. That's what I said in my first post.
I don't think so. this is exactly the kind of juicy tidbit that makes the NY Times front page when Repubs are involved. How many days have we heard about Cheney's addicted doctor? How many of your liberal acquaintances still point to Ken Lay as Bush's friend? Forgetting of course, that Lay was misbehaving badly back in the Clinton administration. So having Lay on Teresa's BOARD is a real, undeniable connection to her househusband.
If it were true. Get the papers, and post them ... HERE tonight.
you're missing the point, entirely !!
Kenny Boy is buddies with the Heinzes? Terry and Kerry Heinz
Even if that is true, Lay got "goodies" from Clinton. He got NADA from President Bush. Do you think that picture has been the picture portrayed by the liberal media??If you do, I've got some ocean front property in Nevada for you.......
I'm trying to find the article, but I read something about this earlier today and IIRC it said she sold her stock in 1995.
You need some series grammer help. The correct way to say it is "more completer."
I disagree. I bet Nader never had Ken Lay over. I bet Nader never owned Enron stock. I bet some anti-capitalist Dims might switch to Nader because of consorting with capitalists like this?
NEVER a slow newsday:
Link to article regarding Heinz/Kerry and Enron.
No your english is bad...
The CORRECT word should have been complete...but I hit the r button afterwards.
Completer is not even a word.
No "reach" here. The point is: Did you know about this before Fox News broke the story??? Didn't you think that President Bush had the "Enron" connection?? At least that is what we were being told by the liberal media. Now, it turns out that Clinton did. And now team Heinz-Kerry enter stage left. I find that interesting, and I think that Michael Moore should investigate immediately!! Afterall, fair is fair, isn't it???
Exactly! Heck, wasn't Clinton the one who personally set up the Indian deal which was one of the biggest mistakes in Enron's history? Lay was on numerous Commerce Department travels with the CLinton administration, as he was also on his Council of Economic Advisors...working for passage of Kyoto, were Enron could've made big bucks.
I also seem to recall a story about Clinton's ex-Treasurer...Rubin, who after joining Citigroup, actually called the Bush administration to get them to artificially inflate Enron's credit rating so they could continue to barrow against their already declining credit. This should've been a big story...as should the fact that none of Clinton's people adhered to his own EO ordering them to stay away from lobbying for 5 years.
Wrong again, maybe you should quit while behind.;)
Want to ensure Ralph Nader gets on the ballot in your state? Go to:
Check out the upper left hand corner of the page.
Help them with their petition drive in your state if applicable. At the very least sign their petition. Really want to have some fun, circulate a petition around among friends and family.
Lets support democracy. Get Ralph on the ballot in as many states as possible.
Aparently none. The one thing Enron wanted Bush to do was to impose CO2 limitations which would have significantly boosted the value of Enron's natural gas holdings. The Bush administration refused to limit CO2 which made the Rats go into spasms and screwed Enron big time.
Over four months ago, I personally pointed out the Teresa/Kenny Boy connection to Judy Woodruff: http://lonewacko.com/blog/archives/001006.html
What is mentioned in this thread doesn't fall into that category. So Lay and Heinz were on the same board. Where's the beef?
There might be beef, but it isn't here yet. Until then, you're chasing your tail on this one.
We are held to a higher standard than Dims and Libs. Get over it and live with the unfairness of it all.
See the Boston Globe article below in post #30 !!
Er, uh, Clinton was ENTIRELY bought off by Enron donations/bribes; and explicitly made foreign policy and US political pressure and US energy dept proposals on behalf of Enron to Indonesia, China, and India.
It was, in fact, the economic failure of these Ponzi schemes (under Bush, when he refused to go along with Enron's promotions) that led to Enron's failures.
Are you from the demoRat Underground?? You seem to be trying VERY hard to make light of this connection. Are you embarrassed by it??? I also find it amusing that you answer your own posts.
Kenneth Lay's Kerry Connection
By Lloyd Grove

The following is excerpted from this article:
Yesterday, self-styled muckraker Bernardo Issel of NonprofitWatch.org told us that the much-maligned Lay has been a longtime member of the board of trustees of the Heinz Center, an environmental group founded by the candidate's wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry. She's the group's vice chairman, and Lay left the small board earlier this year after serving for nearly a decade.
Issel calls this situation "hypocrisy." We'll settle for "irony."
The Kerry campaign directed us to Chris Black, communications director of the Heinz Family Philanthropies. Black acknowledged Lay's participation and his status as a corporate "boogeyman." But she added: "Whatever troubles he had at Enron, Ken Lay had a good reputation in the environmental community for being a businessman who was environmentally sensitive.
When did she sell her 250,000 in Enron stock, and who told her to sell it?
Is this and similiar situations why Madame al Queery will not release her income tax forms from past years.
