"Outraged" victims tied to John Kerry campaign DIRECTLY
I heard Rush play the sound bites of the women all saying the exact same thing. I thought I'd search for those sounds bites tonight when I came across this trail of links from Colleen Kelly and Peaceful Tomorrows back to John Kerry himself.
Here's some quick links if you want to pass this info along without all of my commentary:

Lots of info about the Tides Foundation-
The Heinz Endowments have teamed up with a secretive left-wing group [Mrs. Kerry Is A Commie]
 
More supporting information can be found here: http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/tribune-review/opinion/s_169770.html
 
The "outraged" faces we've seen on television the past two days are more than they seem. Family members of 9/11 victims have been interviewed ad nauseum on television and in newspapers far and wide--Among those 9/11 family members quoted in newspapers and in television interviews across the nation are people like Rita Lasar and Colleen Kelly. Both Lasar and Kelly are leaders of a group called September 11 Families for Peaceful Tomorrows, which on it's surface sounds innocuous enough.But when the connections are peeled away like the layers of an onion, the true picture emerges. Peaceful Tomorrows is one of several projects sponsored by the Tides Center of Pennsylvania.But who is the Tides Center? Known as the Tides Center for Pennsylvania, formerly the Tides Center for Western Pennsylvania, it is none other than a creation of the Tides Foundation and Center, headquartered in San Francisco, and two Pennsylvania-based foundations -- the Vira Heinz Endowment and the Howard Heinz Endowment-- chaired by Teresa Heinz Kerry, heir to the Heinz food company fortune and wife of Democrat presidential contender Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts.

These people put their own political agenda ahead of the country's safety.

I heard a rumor that the White House is really p*ssed about these phony news reports. They are a prime example of CBS, NBC, ABC and CNN reading Democratic Party 'talking point' memos and rushing to do reports based on their outlines.

Bush needs to start getting the truth out about the Kerry-Heinz links and direct support of the so-called victims. They are not victims but Democratic Party Hacks!

Would love to see Kerry get his b*lls kicked in television ads running coast to coast for the next two months.

Great job.

What made you realize this was an organized campaign?

My first hint was a woman who lost her husband, and there was not one bit of sadness about that loss, only dim talking points, from hillry on Senate floor, "Bush knew".

I remember hillry getting booed onstage right after 9/11, and seems from that point forward she set in motion to use 9/11 as a political tool.

This action does tell a book full of a depraved mind.

You'd think that would be the first thing to occur to them. Maybe they think the public is incredibly stupid?

In addition, it appears MoveOn.org supports Peaceful Tomorrows:

A news conference Friday by Peaceful Tomorrows, a group of victims' relatives, was arranged by MoveOn.org, a Berkeley-based group that has been running ads critical of Bush. The relatives questioned the use of the images for political gain.

``When we heard they were upset about these ads, we thought their concerns should be heard,'' said Peter Schurman, executive director of MoveOn. ``These are families of people who died. They are upset that people who were killed in these attacks are having their images used for political purposes.''

http://www.mercurynews.com/mld/mercurynews/news/world/8122223.htm

Date: 11 Mar 2002 20:10:35 -0000
From: "Wes Boyd, MoveOn.org"

MoveOn.org's 9-11peace campaign is supporting a group of American
victims' families, September Eleventh Families for Peaceful Tomorrows,
in their efforts to create a compensation fund for the families of
Afghan victims.

I heard a rumor that the White House is really p*ssed about these phony news reports.

GW and Rove need to take a page out of the old Clinton playbook.

Whenever the scent of a scandal or rumor was about to emerge during the Clinton era, Clinton had a crony in front of the media within seconds, not days later.

GW/Rove, by delaying their responses to these attacks, allow them to settle and sink in to the psyches. Not good.

Remember how quickly the 'liar Bush' attacks stuck.

GW/Rove should have an attack team in-place 24/7 because these attacks will not cease and must be responded to immediately. Those that 'settle in' for days are causing permanent damage.



Good job on the links collections, Backhoe. FR needs an 'index' page to the major links collections; otherwise, they get lost in the threads. The sidebar menu needs a permanent 'link to link collections' selection.

"My wife (Colleen Kelly) was at a panel discussion at Columbia University," he said. "During the talks, someone called from Arafat's barracks and asked for people to come to his headquarters to form a human shield."

Sure enough, 40 enterprising American students did just that, even though they had to sneak past Israeli soldiers.

"It shows there are many like-minded people out there," Jones said.
