Following is a brief backround on Mrs. John Kerry .
She hates being called that, by the way.
Maria Teresa Thiersten Simoes-Ferreira Heinz Kerry. Married Senator
Kerry in 1995. She only took his name eighteen months ago and she is
an "interesting" paradox of conflicts.
If you thought John Kerry was scary, he doesn't hold a candle to
his wife! Maria Teresa Thiersten Simoes-Ferreira Heinz Kerry was born
in Mozambique, the daughter of a Portuguese physician, was educated
in Switzerland and South Africa. Fluent in five languages, she was
working as a United Nations interpreter in Geneva in the mid-60's
when she met a "handsome" young American, H. John Heinz, III, who
worked at a bank in Geneva. He told her his family was "in the food
They were married in 1966 and returned to Pittsburgh where his
family ran the giant H. J. Heinz food company. He was elected to the
US House of Representatives in 1971, and in 1976 he was elected to
the first of three terms in the United States Senate. A Republican,
he wrote a burning diatribe against some of the causes backed by
young House member John Kerry.)
Several years later, in 1991, he was killed when his plane collided
with a Sun Oil Company helicopter over a Philadelphia suburb. The
senator, his pilot and copilot, and both of Sun's helicopter pilots
were killed. He was survived by his wife, Teresa, and their three
Four years later, having inherited Heinz's $500 million fortune,
she married Senator John Forbes Kerry, the liberal then-junior
senator from Massachusetts. She became a registered Democrat and the
process of her radicalization was set in motion.
Heinz Kerry is not shy about telling people that she required Kerry
to sign a prenuptial agreement before they were married John Kerry
may not have check writing privileges on the Heinz catsup and pickle
fortune, but he is certainly a willing and uncomplaining beneficiary
A lot of hard-earned money, made through many years of hawking
catsup, mustard, and pickles has fallen into the hands of two people
who despise successful entrepreneurship and who believe in the
confiscatory redistribution of wealth.
So how does Mrs. Heinz Kerry spend John Heinz's money?
Just one example:
According to the G2 Bulletin, an online intelligence newsletter of
WorldNetDaily, in the years between 1995-2001 she gave more than $4
million to an organization called the Tides Foundation. And what does
the Tides Foundation do with John Heinz's money?
They support numerous antiwar groups, including Ramsey Clark's
International Action Center. Clark has offered to defend Saddam
Hussein when he's tried.
They support the Democratic Justice Fund, a joint venture of the
Tides Foundation and billionaire hate-monger George Soros. The
Democratic Justice Fund seeks to ease restrictions on Muslim
immigration from "terrorist" states.
They support the Council for American-Islamic Relations, whose
leaders are known to have close ties to the terrorist group, Hamas.
They support the National Lawyers Guild, organized as a communist
front during the Cold War era. One of their attorneys, Lynne Stewart,
has been arrested for helping a client, Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman,
communicate with terror cells in Egypt. He is the convicted
mastermind of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
They support the "Barrio Warriors," a radical Hispanic group whose
primary goal is to return all of Arizona, California, New Mexico, and
Texas to Mexico.
These are but a few of the radical groups that benefit, through the
anonymity provided by the Tides Foundation, from the generosity of
our would-be first lady, the wealthy widow of Republican senator John
Heinz, and now the wife of the Democratic senator who aspires to be
the 44th President of the United States.
Aiding and supporting our enemies is not good for America,
regardless of your political views.
If voters will open their eyes, educate themselves and see the real
Teresa Heinz Kerry, they will not appreciate her position as ultra
rich fairy godmother of the radical left. They will not want to
imagine her laying her head on a pillow each night inches away from
the President of the United States.
Hopefully they love this country enough to decide that the only way
these two will ever be allowed into the White House is with an
engraved invitation in hand.
Instead of deleting this, pass it on. Let everyone know these
people are unfit to represent this great nation. The uninformed will
never hear the truth from the press, who wants Kerry elected!
Those who buy the Kerry facade, beware what you vote for - - - you
may regret that you got it!
