"Let's them eat Ketchup",
Kerry was overheared yelling to his assistants.
The constituents are all revolting as they were un-happy with his NEW tax-hike plan.

"But, but, they need more than Ketchup Mr. Kerry",
his assistants protest loudly...

"Oh well, let's put Tomato Soup in every pot for them. Make it 'Heinz Tomato Soup!!!'..."
Kerry replied... amid the song in the background... "Puff, The Magic Dragon...."

"That's more like it sir, it is so cold in New Hampshire, they would like it very much!"
Answered his assistants with a smile on their faces..

Retired Gen. Wesley Clark (news - web sites), making a push for a breakthrough win next week, attacked Kerry for 1992 remarks that affirmative action fostered "a culture of dependency" and said he should have acknowledged them during a debate in Greenville, South Carolina, on Thursday.


"John Kerry says he now supports affirmative action but he should take responsibility for what he said in the past," Clark said in an appearance at a predominantly black college in Columbia.

=========================

Howard Dean, the former governor of Vermont who is trying to halt a disastrous slide in his once high flying campaign, renewed attacks on Kerry's performance on health care issues during his 19 years representing Massachusetts in the Senate.

"I think Sen. Kerry is a fine person but he hasn't accomplished much in the Senate," Dean told reporters in Columbia the day after attacking Kerry's congressional record during the Greenville debate. "I think we need a doer, not a talker, as the nominee of this party."

Kerry defended his record and said he had helped lead the fight on many bills that did not include his name as a co-sponsor.

Dean, who for much of last year dominated the race for the right to challenge Bush on Nov. 2, launched a new attack on Kerry, calling him a typical Washington insider beholden to lobbyists and special interests.


Citing reports in the Washington Post and New York Times that Kerry had raised more money from paid lobbyists than any other senator in the past 15 years, Dean said the Massachusetts lawmaker was no better than Bush in that respect.


"We are not going to beat George Bush by nominating someone who is the handmaiden of special interests, " Dean told hundreds of cheering supporters at a rally in Tucson.


INDIVIDUALS YES, GROUPS NO


Kerry told reporters he had taken no money from organized groups -- only from individuals. "The only people that have contributed to my campaigns to the United States Senate are individual Americans. Now are some of those individual Americans lobbyists? Yeah, sure," Kerry said.


The Washington Post said Kerry had accepted $640,000 from lobbyists, many of them representing the telecommunications and financial services industries that had business before committees Kerry sat on.

Kerry responded: "They haven't gotten anything for it. Those guys have never, ever, ever gotten anything."

HAHAHAHAHAHA not ever a can of Heinz tomato soup? LOL

Kerry Leads in Lobby Money
Sat Jan 31,12:00 AM ET Add Politics - washingtonpost.com to My Yahoo!


By Jim VandeHei, Washington Post Staff Writer

Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.), who has made a fight against corporate special interests a centerpiece of his front-running campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination, has raised more money from paid lobbyists than any other senator over the past 15 years, federal records show.


Kerry, a 19-year veteran of the Senate who fought and won four expensive political campaigns, has received nearly $640,000 from lobbyists, many representing telecommunications and financial companies with business before his committee, according to Federal Election Commission (news - web sites) data compiled by the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics.


For his presidential race, Kerry has raised more than $225,000 from lobbyists, better than twice as much as his nearest Democratic rival. Like President Bush (news - web sites), Kerry has also turned to a number of corporate officials and lobbyists to "bundle" contributions from smaller donors, often in sums of $50,000 or more, records provided by his campaign show.


Most members of Congress and presidential candidates turn to corporations and their Washington-based lobbyists for political assistance, most often with fundraising. All the presidential candidates take money from special interests, including Sen. John Edwards (news - web sites) (D-N.C.), who like Kerry has targeted corporations and lobbyists in his stump speeches. And Bush has far outpaced them all.


Because Kerry has made his fight against "Washington special interests" a new theme of his presidential campaign, campaign rivals and campaign finance watchdogs have accused him of hypocrisy.


Retired Army Gen. Wesley K. Clark, a newcomer to national politics, is running a television ad that hits Kerry and others for ties to special interests. "Special interest deals. Promises unkept. Do we really need another Washington politician?" the narrator says in the ad. "A politician won't change the way Washington works."


"John Kerry (news - web sites) has been withdrawing money from the special interest bank for his entire career and now -- because it's the popular thing to do -- he wants us to believe that he's going to close the account and go after the people that have funded his political career," said Jay Carson, a spokesman for former Vermont governor Howard Dean (news - web sites).

Sen. Russell Feingold (D-Wis.), co-author of the newest campaign finance law, said Kerry was not one of the half-dozen members who put together the reform package but "he's always been one of our most consistent and strongest supporters." Kerry unilaterally swore off political action committee funds from corporations during his four Senate runs, a popular position for reform advocates before large, unregulated of "soft money" from corporations, unions and rich people started dominating politics in the 1990s. "It's great he didn't take PAC money, but let's not go crazy here," said Lewis.




The reason: As Kerry was pushing reforms and boasting of his PAC-free campaigns, he was aggressively soliciting money from individuals working for companies and ringing up much bigger checks from corporations in the form of soft money. Kerry has not been involved in any of the major fundraising scandals of the past three decades -- although he was one of several politicians who took money from Taiwanese American businessman Johnny Chung, who was convicted of contributing illegally to Bill Clinton (news - web sites) and many others.

The Hill, a Washington-based publication covering Capitol Hill, this month reported that Kerry in 1999 lobbied the Coast Guard on a rule-making process that benefited a foreign company represented by Cassidy & Associates. Soon after, employees of Cassidy & Associates sent Kerry $7,250 in bundled contributions. Jim Ruggieri, the Coast Guard official who handled the matter, told the paper it was highly unusual for a senator to intervene on such a matter.

A review of FEC and other data by The Washington Post found that Kerry has raked in millions from U.S. corporations, especially financial companies such as Citigroup and telecom firms, including Rubert Murdoch's News Corp., which also flew one of his Senate staffers to California for a meeting.

AP Exclusive: Kerry Blocked Law, Drew Cash
1 hour, 28 minutes ago

By JOHN SOLOMON, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON - A Senate colleague was trying to close a loophole that allowed a major insurer to divert millions of federal dollars from the nation's most expensive construction project. John Kerry stepped in and blocked the legislation.

Over the next two years, the insurer,
American International Group, paid Kerry's way on a trip to Vermont and donated at least $30,000 to a tax-exempt group Kerry used to set up his presidential campaign. Company executives donated $18,000 to his Senate and presidential campaigns.

Were the two connected? Kerry says not.

But to some government watchdogs, the tale of the Massachusetts senator's 2000 intervention, detailed in documents obtained by The Associated Press, is a textbook case of the special interest politicking that Kerry rails against on the presidential trail.

"The idea that Kerry has not helped or benefited from a specific special interest, which he has said, is utterly absurd," said Charles Lewis, head of the Center for Public Integrity that just published a book on political donations to the presidential candidates.

"Anyone who gets millions of dollars over time, and thousands of dollars from specific donors, knows there's a symbiotic relationship. He needs the donors' money. The donors need favors. Welcome to Washington. That is how it works."

The documents obtained by AP provide a window into Kerry's involvement in a two-decade-old highway and tunnel construction project in his home state of Massachusetts. Known as the "Big Dig," it had become infamous for its multibillion dollar cost overruns.

Kerry's office confirmed Wednesday that as member of the Senate Commerce Committee he persuaded committee chairman John McCain, R-Ariz., to drop a provision that would have stripped $150 million from the project and ended the insurance funding loophole.

The Massachusetts Democrat actually was angered by the loophole but didn't want money stripped from the project because it would hurt his constituents who needed the Boston project finished, spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter said.

When the "AIG investment scheme (came) to light, John Kerry called for public hearings to investigate the parties involved and the legality of the investment practices. However, he firmly believed cutting funding for the Big Dig was not the answer," Cutter said.

Instead of McCain's bluntly worded legislation, Kerry asked for a committee hearing in May 2000. Kerry thanked McCain at the start of the hearing for dropping his legislation and an AIG executive was permitted to testify that he believed the company's work for the Big Dig was a good thing even though it was criticized by federal auditors.

"From the perspective of public and worker safety and cost control, AIG's insurance program has been a success," AIG executive Richard Thomas testified.

Asked why Kerry would subsequently accept a trip and money from AIG in 2001 and 2002 if he was angered by the investment scheme, Cutter replied: "Any contributions AIG made to the senator's campaign came years after the investigation. Throughout his career, John Kerry has stood up to special interests on behalf of average Americans. This case is no different."

The New York-based insurer, one of the world's largest, declined to comment on its donations to Kerry, simply stating, "AIG never requested any assistance from Senator Kerry concerning the insurance we provided the Big Dig."

The project has become a symbol of government contracting gone awry, known for its huge cost overruns that now total several billion dollars, and its admissions of mismanagement.

During the 1990s, Sens. Kerry and Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., helped win new federal funding for the project as its costs skyrocketed and threatened to burden the state's government. In 1998, Kerry was credited with winning $100 million in new federal funding.

But in 1999, the Transportation Department uncovered a financing scheme in which the project had overpaid $129.8 million to AIG for worker compensation and liability insurance that wasn't needed, then had allowed the insurer to keep the money in a trust and invest it in the market. The government alleged AIG kept about half of the profits it made from the investments, providing the other half to the project.

Outraged by the revelations, McCain submitted legislation that would have stripped $150 million from the Big Dig and banned the practice of allowing an insurer to invest and profit from excessive premiums paid with government money.

"Any refunds of insurance premiums or reserve amounts, including interest, that exceed a project's liabilities shall be immediately returned to the federal government," McCain's legislation declared.

But Kerry and Kennedy intervened, and McCain withdrew the legislation in 2000 in favor of the hearing.

At that hearing, the Transportation's Department inspector general made a renewed plea for a permanent federal policy banning the overpayment of insurance premiums and subsequent investment for profit — what McCain had proposed and Kerry helped kill.

"The policy is needed to ensure that projects do not attempt to draw down federal funds for investment purposes under the guise that they are needed to pay insurance claims. It is that simple," the inspector general told senators.

In September 2001, Kerry disclosed to the Senate ethics office that AIG had paid an estimated $540 in travel expenses to cover his costs for a speech in Burlington, Vt.

A few months later in December 2001, several AIG executives gave maximum $1,000 donations to Kerry's Senate campaign on the same day. The donations totaled $9,700 and were followed by several thousand dollars more over the next two years.

The next spring, AIG donated $10,000 to a new tax-exempt group Kerry formed, the Citizen Soldier Fund, to lay groundwork for his presidential campaign. Later in 2002, AIG gave two more donations of $10,000 each to the same group, making it one of the largest corporate donors to Kerry's group.

The insurer wasn't the only company connected to the Big Dig to donate to Kerry's new group. Two construction companies on the project — Modern Continental Group and Jay Cashman Construction — each donated $25,000, IRS records show.

Rep. James McGovern, D-Mass., a Boston area lawmaker, credited Kerry for getting McCain's legislation blocked in favor of a hearing, saying Massachusetts lawmakers "were on the side of good government here but also concerned the language might go too far and put more of a burden on a Massachusetts project."

Found this posting on Yahoo politics BB#

Exerpt from Op/Ed:
""Kerry took out a $6 million mortgage for "his share" of "the family's home" -- which was bought with the Heinz family fortune. (Why should he spend his own money? He didn't throw away his own medals.)

I'm sure the average working stiff in Massachusetts can relate to a guy who borrows $6 million against his house to pay for TV ads.

Kerry's campaign has stoutly insisted that he will pay off the mortgage himself, with no help from his rich wife.

Let's see: According to tax returns released by his campaign, in 2002, Kerry's income was $144,091. But as The Washington Post recently reported, even a $5 million mortgage paid back over 30 years at favorable interest rates would cost $30,389 a month -- or $364,668 a year.

The Democrats' joy at nominating Kerry is perplexing. To be sure, liberals take a peculiar, wrathful pleasure in supporting pacifist military types. And Kerry's life story is not without a certain feral aggression. But if we're going to determine fitness for office based on life experience, Kerry clearly has no experience dealing with problems of typical Americans since he is a cad and a gigolo living in the lap of other men's money.

Kerry is like some character in a Balzac novel, an adventurer twirling the end of his mustache and preying on rich women.

He bought a political career with one rich woman's money, dumped her, and made off with another heiress to enable him to run for president. If Democrats want to talk about middle-class tax cuts, couldn't they nominate someone who hasn't been a poodle to rich women for past 33 years?

WOW~

Kerry campaign plays the spouse card
'Husband of' applies when wife is Playboy bigwig

By Howard Mortman
MSNBC contributor
Updated: 2:55 p.m. ET March 11, 2004WASHINGTON - Bill Marovitz is a big time Chicago Democrat with an impeccable partisan pedigree.

advertisement

He’s vice chairman of the Illinois Democratic Party. He’s raised money for Democrats. He’s been a Democratic convention delegate. For nearly 20 years, he served in the Illinois State Senate, where as chairman of the Senate Judiciary committee he championed gun control legislation and senior citizens. He’s a member of the Illinois Electoral College. In 1994, he jogged along Monroe Street Harbor with Bill Clinton.

And he’s a legacy. He was nephew of the late federal Judge Abraham Lincoln Marovitz, who lived until 95, served more than 50 years on the bench, and was a fixture on the Illinois political scene.

In the 2004 presidential campaign, Bill Marovitz was a Dean supporter. When Dean dropped out, Marovitz switched to John Kerry. The primary is March 16. Marovitz’s switch was newsworthy.

In fact, the Kerry campaign put out a press release proclaiming his — and many other Illinois Democrats’ — switch from Dean to Kerry. The March 1, 2004, press release featured this headline: “Illinois Dean Leaders Endorse John Kerry.”

And there was Marovitz's name. “Bill Marovitz — Vice Chairman of Illinois Democratic Party (husband of Christie Hefner).”

That Christie Hefner?
Huh? Christie Hefner? That Christie Hefner? How did she get into the press release? No other “husbands of” are listed among the 25 names. Of course, none of them have the last name Hefner. Certainly none of them are married to the chairman and chief executive of Playboy Enterprises. That must have been a presidential campaign first, bragging about the Playboy CEO.

The Kerry camp put the two together. But there was distance between the two in the pages of Playboy itself. The October 2003 Playboy ran this item: “AND ALL THAT JAZZ: Christie Hefner hosted a party, attended by playboy publisher Diane Silberstein, Bill Marovitz, Arianna Huffington and Bill Maher, prior to the 25th Playboy Jazz Festival at the Hollywood Bowl.”

What, no "wife of?" Meanwhile, on the GOP side, Erika Harold is running on the Illinois ballot as a Bush delegate to the Republican convention from the 15th Congressional District. Erika Harold is Miss America 2003. No word on the ballot whom her boyfriend is.

Bill Marovitz is a big-time Chicago pol from a powerful Illinois family who got married in 1995. In this press release, however, he’s famous because of his wife.

In fairness to women, shouldn’t the Kerry campaign have listed everyone else’s wife?

Kerry faces questions over Purple Heart
By Michael Kranish, Globe Staff, 4/14/2004

WASHINGTON -- John F. Kerry's tour of duty in Vietnam, distinguished by Silver and Bronze stars and the close-range killing of an enemy fighter, is highlighted in his campaign ads and cheered on the trail. Even the campaign of President Bush, who did not see combat, hasn't tried to make an issue of his opponent's service record.

But as the presidential campaign heats up, some Vietnam veterans are using the Internet and talk radio to question the Democratic candidate's military record. They complain that Kerry's three Purple Hearts were for minor wounds and that he left Vietnam more than six months ahead of schedule under regulations permitting thrice-wounded soldiers to depart early.

A review by the Globe of Kerry's war record in preparation for a forthcoming book, "John F. Kerry: The Complete Biography," found that the young Navy officer acted heroically under fire, in one case saving the life of an Army lieutenant. But the examination also found that Kerry's commanding officer at the time questioned Kerry's first Purple Heart, which he earned for a wound received just two weeks after arriving in Vietnam.

"He had a little scratch on his forearm, and he was holding a piece of shrapnel," recalled Kerry's commanding officer, Lieutenant Commander Grant Hibbard. "People in the office were saying, `I don't think we got any fire,' and there is a guy holding a little piece of shrapnel in his palm." Hibbard said he couldn't be certain whether Kerry actually came under fire on Dec. 2, 1968, the date in questionand that is why he said he asked Kerry questions about the matter.

But Kerry persisted and, to his own "chagrin," Hibbard said, he dropped the matter. "I do remember some questions, some correspondence about it," Hibbard said. "I finally said, `OK, if that's what happened . . . do whatever you want.' After that, I don't know what happened. Obviously, he got it, I don't know how."

Kerry declined to talk to the Globe about the issue during the preparation of the Kerry biography. But his press secretary, Michael Meehan, noted that the Navy concluded that Kerry deserved the Purple Heart.

During the Vietnam War, Purple Hearts were often granted for minor wounds. "There were an awful lot of Purple Hearts--from shrapnel, some of those might have been M-40 grenades," said George Elliott, who served as a commanding officer to Kerry during another point in his five-month combat tour in Vietnam. (Kerry earlier served a noncombat tour.) "The Purple Hearts were coming down in boxes." Under Navy regulations, an enlistee or officer wounded three times was permitted to leave Vietnam early, as Kerry did. He received all three purple hearts for relatively minor injuries -- two did not cost him a day of service and one took him out for a day or two.

The incident that led to Kerry's first Purple Heart was risky, and covert. He and his crew left the safe confines of the huge US base at Cam Ranh Bay, climbing aboard a "skimmer" boat -- a craft similar to a Boston Whaler -- to travel upriver in search of Viet Cong guerrillas. At a beach that was known as a crossing area for enemy contraband traffic, Kerry's crew spotted some people running from a sampan, a flat-bottomed boat, to a nearby shoreline, according to two men serving alongside Kerry that night, William Zaladonis and Patrick Runyon. When the Vietnamese refused to obey a call to stop, Kerry authorized firing to begin.

"I assume they fired back," Zaladonis recalled in an interview. But neither he nor Runyon saw the source of the shrapnel that lodged in Kerry's arm. '`We came across the bay onto the beach and I got [hit] in the arm, got shrapnel in the arm," Kerry told the Globe in a 2003 interview. Kerry has also said he didn't know where the shrapnel came from.

Back at the base, Kerry told Hibbard he qualified for a Purple Heart, according to Hibbard. Thirty-six years later, Hibbard, reached at his retirement home in Florida, said he can still recall Kerry's wound, and that it resembled a scrape from a fingernail. "I've had thorns from a rose that were worse," said Hibbard, a registered Republican who said he was undecided on the 2004 presidential race.

The Globe asked Kerry's campaign whether the Massachusetts senator is certain he was under enemy fire and whether he recalled that a superior officer raised questions about the matter. The campaign did not respond directly to those questions. Instead, Meehan said in a prepared statement that Kerry "received the shrapnel wound early in the course of that combat engagement. " Meehan also provided a copy of a medical report showing treatment for a wound on Dec. 3, 1968. The Purple Heart regulation in effect at that time said that a wound must "require treatment by a medical officer."

Nearly three months later, a document was sent to Kerry informing him that he would receive a Purple Heart "for injuries received on 2 December 1968." The Naval Historical Center, which could not locate a copy of the original card for the incident, nonetheless confirmed that Kerry did receive the Purple Heart.

Kerry went on to earn another two Purple Hearts and he led more than two dozen missions in which he often faced enemy fire. He won the Silver Star for an action in which he killed an enemy soldier who carried a loaded rocket launcher that could have destroyed Kerry's six-man patrol boat, and he won a Bronze Star for rescuing an Army lieutenant who was thrown overboard and under fire.

One reason that Kerry has long divided Vietnam veterans is because of the way he led a group called Vietnam Veterans Against the War after he returned to the United States. While in Vietnam, Kerry began to question the policy of "free-fire zones," which permitted sailors to open fire on rivers where Vietnamese were violating nighttime curfews. He said in a 1971 appearance on "Meet the Press": "There are all kinds of atrocities, and I would have to say that, yes, yes, I committed the same kind of atrocities as thousands of other soldiers have committed, in that I took part in shootings in free-fire zones."

Thirty-three years later, that statement still rankles some veterans, apparently including those who have formed a group called Vietnam Veterans Against John Kerry, which has a website devoted to what it calls Kerry's association with the "radical pro-communist" antiwar movement.

The statements of that group have been circulated widely over the Internet and picked up on conservative radio talk shows.

But some historians said Kerry is being unfairly criticized over his antiwar effort, which is best remembered for his Senate testimony in which he asked why soldiers should be asked to die for a mistake. "Thirty-three years later, his testimony has really proved to be prescient," said historian Stanley Karnow, author of "Vietnam: A History." "The war was a mistake. Nobody knew better that the war was a mistake than the poor grunts out there fighting it."

Indeed, some of Kerry's crewmates who were aghast that Kerry had led them into battle and then came home to protest the war now say Kerry was ahead of his time in seeing the mistaken policy. Crewmate James Wasser, who originally felt "betrayed" by Kerry's antiwar leadership, said, "Knowing what I know now, I would have totally agreed with him."

"I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it."
— John Kerry


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of pageLink to this message  By Anonymous on Wednesday, April 21, 2004 - 01:58 am:

Another example of John Kerry's hypocrisy when his record on the issues does not match his rhetoric.

John Kerry's wife is an heir to the H.J. Heinz Co. fortune. While Teresa Heinz Kerry gained much of her $500 million portfolio through her Heinz inheritance, she does not serve on the board and is not involved with the management of the company. Even her late husband, Sen. H. John Heinz III, R-Pa., did not serve on the board.


During the campaign, Kerry has criticized companies that move jobs overseas or shift their tax status abroad to avoid federal taxes, calling them "Benedict Arnold" businesses. He has faulted the Bush administration for embracing a tax policy that rewards them.

With Kerrys' ties to Heinz, the four-term Massachusetts senator is a hypocrite for slamming policies that have poured millions into his wife's bank account.

According to Kerry's financial disclosure report filed last May, Heinz Kerry owns more than $4 million worth of company stock. Heinz Kerry sold more than $14.8 million worth of Heinz stock in 2002.

Heinz Co. is trying desperately to keep the campaign out of its ketchup sales. In the last few months, the company — which gets about 5,000 phone calls a month — has fielded 800 calls from consumers with questions or complaints about the company's connections to Kerry, his wife and the campaign, said spokeswoman Debbie Foster.

The multibillion-dollar Heinz Co. has about 38,900 workers worldwide, with 30 percent located in 27 factories scattered across 17 states. The other 70 percent work in facilities overseas.

About 60 percent of the company's sales are outside America, and the products sold in other countries are often made and marketed locally and in some cases are unique to that region. Tomatoes for ketchup sold in the United States are grown largely in the regions surrounding the major processing plants in Ohio, Iowa and California.

Besides its name brands, Heinz also makes and markets OreIda potatoes, Smart Ones frozen foods and Classico sauces. The company has 50 affiliates operating in 200 countries.

Heinz company, have had hundreds of layoffs and plant closings in five states over the past nine years in contrast to jobs it created in other countries.

WSWS : News & Analysis : North America : US Economy

US: More job cuts, falling business and consumer confidence
By David Walsh
14 November 1998
Kodak, Texaco, Monsanto and H.J. Heinz all announced substantial job cuts this week, as surveys showed continued decline in both consumer and business confidence. The Labor Department reported Thursday that the number of newly idled workers filing for unemployment benefits jumped by 12,000 last week to the highest level since mid-July. It now seems certain that 1998 will be the worst year for layoffs in the decade, topping the total of 615,000 in 1993. Through October, companies had announced 523,000 job cuts.

Heinz said Tuesday it will eliminate nearly 400 jobs as it combines its Ore-Ida and Weight Watchers frozen foods operations. The company is closing a plant in West Chester, Pennsylvania, a move that will cost 200 jobs. Another 190 jobs will be eliminated by closing the headquarters of Ore-Ida in Boise, Idaho and moving it to Pittsburgh, Heinz's world headquarters.

HEINZ ASSETS USED TO BOOST CAMPAIGN

In December '03, Kerry announced that he loaned his campaign $6.4 Million by mortgaging a share of a Boston home he jointly owns with his wife.

Teresa Heinz Kerry paid cash for the Beacon Hill mansion in January 1995.

But according To Kerry's own 1994 senate personal financial disclosure [signed May, 15, 1995], Kerry's own personal net worth was somewhere between a negative $130,000 to positive $34,995.

The current loan on the house carries an annual interest payment of $200,000, records show, more than Kerry's $158,000 Senate salary.

Kerry's campaign insists he intends to pay off the 30-year mortgage himself.

"Sen. Kerry is a man who has considerable assets," spokesman Michael Meehan explains.

But Kerry's own financial disclosures show no assets sufficient to pay the loan -- or even a way to keep up with the interest payments!


KERRY: CLEAR THE AIR


Besides a blurring of Heinz-Kerry assets, the campaign is also wresting with past quotes made by Kerry himself.

In his 1990 Senate race, Kerry asked his challenger to "clear the air" by releasing tax returns.

"I think people want to know whether someone they possibly might send to Washington to represent them in the Senate is someone who pays their fair share of taxes,'" Kerry said. "Why is James Rappaport hiding his tax returns?" Kerry asked. "Why is it some people can live up to that standard and he can't? It seems to me that he ought to be able to release those returns and clear the air...

"Why doesn't he just release them? What is he hiding?"

And at the height of last year's primary race, Kerry vowed that "openness" would be the "hallmark" of his administration.

"As president, openness will be the hallmark of my administration, not some talking point... The highest office in the land requires the highest level of openness for the American people."

Discarded Decorations
Videotape Contradicts John Kerry’s Own Statements Over Vietnam Medals

By Brian Ross and Chris Vlasto

April 26 — Contradicting his statements as a candidate for president, Sen. John Kerry claimed in a 1971 television interview that he threw away as many as nine of his combat medals to protest the war in Vietnam.

"I gave back, I can't remember, six, seven, eight, nine medals," Kerry said in an interview on a Washington, D.C., news program on WRC-TV called Viewpoints on Nov. 6, 1971, according to a tape obtained by ABCNEWS.

Throughout his presidential campaign, Kerry has denied that he threw away any of his medals during an anti-war protest in April 1971.

Calling it a "phony controversy" instigated by the Republican party, Kerry said on Good Morning America today that he has always accurately said what took place. "I threw my ribbons. I didn't have my medals. It is very simple."

He also said he — and the military — didn't make a distinction between medals and ribbons. "We threw away the symbols of what our country gave us for what we had gone through," he said.

And in an interview with ABCNEWS' Peter Jennings last December, he said it was a "myth."

But Kerry told a much different story on Viewpoints. Asked about the anti-war veterans who threw their medals away, Kerry said "they decided to give them back to their country."

Kerry was asked if he gave back the Bronze Star, Silver Star and three Purple Hearts he was awarded for combat duty as a Navy lieutenant in Vietnam. "Well, and above that, [I] gave back the others," he said.

The statement directly contradicts Kerry's most recent claims on the disputed subject to the Los Angeles Times last Friday. "I never ever implied that I did it, " Kerry told the newspaper, responding to the question of whether he threw away his medals in protest.

"I'm proud of my medals. I always was proud of them," he told Jennings in December, adding that he had only thrown away his "ribbons" and the medals of two other veterans who could not attend the protest.

Another Perspective
John Adam Smith Kerry
By Patrick Hynes
Published 4/27/2004 12:04:36 AM

When the media have bothered to cover John Kerry's "Benedict Arnold companies" hypocrisy at all, they have tended only to discuss the outsourcing and off-shoring of HJ Heinz & Co., a firm with which he has only a tangential relationship through his wife.

And why not? The condiment conglomerate is an easy target. They're a more-or-less Republican outfit whose political action committee and big shot executives have given more to President Bush and friends than to Kerry anyway. If you were inclined toward charity for the Kerry for President campaign, as too much of the mainstream press is, why not make HJ Heinz the goat?

But the media has missed a bigger story about Sen. Everyone-Is-Stupid-Except-Me. Leave aside for a moment his holdings in the Pennsylvania Catsup concern. Even a cursory glance at John Kerry's most recent Personal Financial Disclosure forms (filed in 2003) shows Ted Kennedy's more liberal, junior partner is deeply invested and has personally profited from the outsourcing phenomena that haunts corporate America.

We have cross-referenced Kerry's holdings of publicly traded assets with Lou Dobbs' worst outsource offenders list. Herewith are the results. Kerry invests in the following outsourcers:

BristoMyers Squibb, Medtronics, Proctor & Gamble, SBC Communications, Verizon, Suntrust Banks, ExxonMobil Corp., Intel, Microsoft, 3M, General Electric, Wyeth, Citigroup, BellSouth, American Express, Monsanto, Emerson Electric, Mellon Bank, USAA, AT&T, Comcast, Bear Sterns, Pfizer, Ingerson-Rand, Anheuser Busch, Automatic Data Processing, Bank of America, Becton Dickson, Chevron Texaco, Electronic Data Systems, Equifax, Goldman Sachs, Hershey Foods, Home Depot, IBM, JP Morgan, Johnson & Johnson, Oracle, Pepsico, Sun Microsystems, Target, Texas Instruments, Veritas Software.

At least one of these companies, Automatic Data Processing (ADP), is itself a corporate outsourcing agency. They brag on their website, "At ADP, we continue to develop innovative products and services to help our clients save valuable time... make the most of their employees and resources... and boost their bottom line. This solutions-oriented approach has helped us become the world's leading provider of computerized transaction processing, data communications and information-based business solutions."

Much of that processing, communicating, and solution-ing is done in India, of course, at the expense of American workers. So, how does the man who routinely promises to "shut down any incentive, any reward or any kind of benefit for any Benedict Arnold company or CEO that takes American jobs overseas and sticks the American people with the bill" sleep at night?

Maybe he has come to the conclusion that outsourcing is a legitimate business practice that improve corporate bottom lines and increase shareholder value. Which, in turn increases investment. Which frees up capital for other companies that use the capital to expand and create more jobs all over the world, especially in America.

The real story here is not that John Kerry is a hypocritical, do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do liberal. That isn't headline news.

What's surprising is that even an unreconstructed Seventies liberal can see the beauty of the free market system.

Heinz Kerry begins to emerge from husband's shadow

by Abby Peterson, State Editor
April 27, 2004

As Sen. John Kerry continues to form a national identity as the Democratic candidate for president, his wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, is also beginning to emerge from the shadows to form a national persona as the potential next first lady.

Some allege Heinz Kerry, often described by journalists as a "loose cannon," has been kept under wraps in her husband's campaign due to fears she may do or say something that could sabotage Kerry's bid for the presidency.

An open critic of abortion and a registered Republican until Kerry began his primary run for the Democratic nomination last year, Heinz Kerry's political record contrasts her husband's long record as a pro-choice Democrat.

A self-described independent woman, Heinz Kerry is also economically self-sufficient. She inherited $500 million from her first husband, ketchup heir H. John Heinz III, who later became a Republican senator from Pennsylvania, when he died in a plane crash in 1991.

In 1995, she married Kerry, who was also previously married.

Heinz Kerry took an active role on the campaign trail for her husband this past year, campaigning heavily in crucial states like Iowa and New Hampshire as well as speaking in Madison during the February primary.

She has, however, stated her dislike of deferring to her husband as a political wife. This personality trait appeals to many women who consider the role of first lady to be one of trophy wife and hostess.

"I've always disliked the traditional role of the first lady as the dog and leash behind the president," said Emily McWilliams, finance coordinator for the University of Wisconsin Campus Women's Center. "In my mind, the best kind of first lady would be the first lady who would ... not be a puppet to the president."

McWilliams said Laura Bush fit the role of first lady, but that her "watered down" feminine demeanor is not a positive example for women.

Many, however, find Laura Bush an appealing first lady, particularly after Hillary Clinton filled the role for eight years. The former first lady's involvement in Clinton's administration -- most notably as a leader in the push to universalize health care -- caused a number of critics to call for an end in "activist" first ladies.

"There is a difference between being involved in politics and playing president. And I think [Hillary Clinton] was playing president too much," Jessi Schober, vice-chair of Students for Bush, said.

Schober indicated that a first lady should show initiative, such as Laura Bush's literacy programs Ready to Read and Ready to Learn, but should also be a "support system" to her spouse in his role as president.

"Laura Bush has ... embodied what a first lady should be," Schober said, adding that more than anything else, the first lady must fulfill her important role as a part of the "first family."

Despite the debate over who best fits the role of first lady, most agree the perception of a candidate's spouse should not affect people's votes, McWilliams added.

"I'd like to keep the politics of the person I'm voting for separate from their private relationship," she said.

Kerry Absence Dooms Jobless Benefits Vote

Wednesday, May 12, 2004

WASHINGTON — A push by Senate Democrats to extend jobless benefits lost by a single vote yesterday - as their nominee-to-be, John Kerry (search), missed the vote while campaigning in Kentucky.
Kerry, the only senator to miss the vote, said he didn't come back to Washington because "we were told that no matter what would happen, [the Republicans] would change a vote in the Senate and they were not going to let it happen."

The bid to extend federal jobless benefits for an extra 13 weeks failed by 59-40, one short of the 60 votes needed because the cost would exceed last year's budget agreement.

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (search), D-N.Y., said almost 130,000 New Yorkers exhausted their jobless benefits between December and April. Opponents note the jobless rate dropped to 5.6 percent and say the emergency aid isn't needed.

President Bush's campaign spokesman, Steve Schmidt, said, "Last month, John Kerry was pushing for the extension of unemployment benefits. Today, he had the chance to actually vote on that question, but was too busy playing politics when he would have made the difference in the Senate."

AP: Kerry Considers Delaying
By NEDRA PICKLER and SHARON THEIMER,
Associated Press Writers

BOSTON - Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry is considering delaying accepting his party's nomination to gain time to raise and spend private contributions and lessen President Bush's multimillion-dollar financial advantage, The Democratic Party would still hold its national convention in Boston at the end of July. If Kerry were to delay acceptance of the nomination for a month, he would even the playing field with Bush, who plans to accept his nomination at the Republican National Convention in New York five weeks later.

Kerry's campaign and the Democratic National Committee are still considering specifics of such a plan. Delegates could be asked to nominate Kerry at the convention or gather at a later time for a vote. At the convention, Kerry could give an acceptance speech or just address delegates.

Kerry Breaks Bush Record For Pace of Fundraising

Thu Jun 17, 9:14 AM ET

By Thomas B. Edsall, Washington Post Staff Writer

Since locking up the Democratic nomination on March 2, Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) has raised more than $100 million, or over $1 million a day -- a pace breaking all presidential campaign records, including those set by President Bush (news - web sites).

The Kerry campaign announced the figures yesterday, before filing with the Federal Election Commission (news - web sites) later this week. The disclosure shows that Kerry led Bush in fundraising from March through May almost 2 to 1: $100.4 million to Bush's $55.2 million. In May alone, Kerry raised $26 million compared with $13.2 million by Bush, according to calculations by CNN that Bush officials described as accurate.


Throughout the campaign, however, Bush has outraised Kerry by an estimated $214 million to $145 million, according to FEC records and data released by the Kerry campaign.

Later this week, the Bush and Kerry campaigns will file complete, detailed reports of fundraising and spending for the month of May.


Kerry's success has turned on its head what had been an almost universally accepted political axiom: that a Democratic presidential candidate cannot compete with a Republican in the race for cash.

Together, the Kerry and Bush campaigns are on track to raise a total of more than $400 million by the end of the summer in a demonstration that the 2002 McCain-Feingold campaign finance law has not constrained presidential spending.

Instead, the law encouraged both candidates to reject spending limits and public subsidies because individual contribution limits were raised from $1,000 to $2,000.

The single largest source of money for Kerry was the Internet, according to his campaign. It produced $44 million from March through May, compared with the $31 million raised through direct mail and phone solicitations, and $25 million from high-dollar events and major donor solicitations.

"When John Kerry (news - web sites) essentially secured the Democratic nomination on Super Tuesday, the Bush campaign immediately launched a negative attack campaign, declaring that within 90 days they would 'bury' our campaign," Kerry campaign manager Mary Beth Cahill said in a statement. "I'm happy to report that 90 days later, they failed."

In a second display of fundraising prowess, the Democratic National Committee (news - web sites) released the names of 17 "Trustees" who have collected at least $250,000 for the party, and 171 "Patriots" who have raised at least $100,000.

Kerry's fundraising achievements in recent months pose a long-range question for his party and for future Democratic candidates:

Does the flow of cash signal a source of money for the future, or is it the momentary result of the intense animosity toward President Bush among Democratic activists?

Many Democrats have privately given Bush most of the credit for the surge in Democratic cash, but yesterday Democrats argued that the gains may be permanent.

DNC Chairman Terence R. McAuliffe contended that Kerry and the party are building a "sustainable" fundraising base, while acknowledging the importance of the backlash to Bush's policies: "This is a perfect storm for fundraising, a visceral dislike of George Bush's policies, a great nominee, and a unified and energized party."

Kerry treasurer Bob Farmer was optimistic about Democratic prospects, saying: "What has happened is the little guy has been empowered, and I think they like it. The Internet gives them a piece of the action."

Simon Rosenberg, president of the New Democrat Network, an independent group promoting the Democratic Party in Hispanic communities, said the gains are "long-lasting and momentary."

"It's reacting to the moment, the view that Bush is not just a bad president but a threat to our values," he said, adding that "there is a whole generation of people who have become politically active, our system has been reinvigorated."

Bush-Cheney '04 spokesman Scott Stanzel did not address the question of whether the Kerry fundraising signals sustained Democratic fundraising success. But he said that "we have always indicated we will be outspent by the Democratic nominee and the liberal soft-money groups."

In fact, when money raised by the parties, the two presidential candidates and by "soft money" committees known as "527s" is added, the total on the Republican side is $574 million and on the Democratic side $421 million, a $153 million GOP advantage.

Many of the DNC's Patriots and Trustees have already raised large sums for the Kerry campaign. Some of the new names include former vice president Al Gore (news - web sites) and Washington lobbyists Thomas Hale Boggs Jr. and R. Scott Pastrick, who have achieved Patriot status.

Researcher Lucy Shackelford contributed to this report.

By JOHN SOLOMON and SHARON THEIMER, Associated Press Writers

WASHINGTON - John Kerry's campaign collected a maximum $2,000 check from the recently arrested son of South Korea's disgraced former president, and some of its fund-raisers met several times with a South Korean government official who was trying to organize a Korean-American political group.

Chun Jae-yong was arrested in February by South Korean authorities on charges of evading taxes on $14 million in inheritance money. His father, former president Chun Dooh-hwan, was convicted in 1997 on bribery charges.

The Democratic Party markedly increased its vetting of fund-raisers and donors in the late 1990s after the fund-raising scandal centered mostly on Asian Americans. More than a dozen Democratic fund-raisers or donors were convicted of federal crimes, and the Clintons were forced to acknowledged they used White House coffees and overnight stays in the Lincoln bedroom as rewards to lure large donations.

Kerry has been raising record amounts of money for his presidential campaign as he tries to level the playing field with President Bush, who has collected an unprecedented $218 million for his re-election. Kerry's campaign checks the backgrounds of all fund-raisers and requires non-citizen donors to show proof they are legal residents allowed to donate.

Kerry has been forced on several occasions to answer questions or return donations after media reports that he accepted money from donors with unsavory backgrounds.

For instance, Kerry received $10,000 in donations in the 1990s through controversial Democratic fund-raiser Johnny Chung after his Senate office arranged a tour for Chung at the Securities and Exchange Commission (news - web sites). Johnny Chung later pleaded guilty to making illegal straw donations, including some to Kerry.

Kerry Questions Bush Handling of Enron Investigation
Friday, July 09, 2004

NEW YORK — Democratic candidates John Kerry and John Edwards, on the campaign trail together just three days, suggested Friday that President Bush was emphasizing values for political gain and criticized the Republican administration's investigation of former Enron executive Ken Lay.


http://vikingphoenix.com/e2004/kerry/jfkerrybooks.htm
"I understand that President Bush is going to be out today as he does every day talking about values," Edwards said. "Values is not a word on a piece of paper. Values is not part of a political slogan. Values are what's inside you."

Taking over, Kerry added, "Values are putting the full force of the Justice Department on day one in an effort not to take three years and a few months before the election before you bring Ken Lay to justice."

The former Enron Corp. chief executive officer, a friend and contributor to Bush and other Republicans in the past, was indicted Thursday after a 21/2-year investigation into the energy giant's collapse. He's accused of being at the helm of a conspiracy to deceive the public, shareholders, government regulators and others.

From 1989 to 2001 Lay and his wife donated $793,110 to Republicans and $86,470 to Democrats, according to the nonpartisan Center For Responsive Politics.

"I grew up in a small town in North Carolina. I know something about values," Edwards said. He praised "middle-class working Americans" who "are struggling to get by" to better themselves and provide for their families.

(I AM WORTH $50,000,000-60,000,000 NOW!!
I LOVE CHASIG EMBULANCE, IT PAID OFF LOL...LOL)

"They represent the values of America. Not Enron. Not Ken Lay, who it's now taken the Bush administration over three years to indict," Edwards said. "We need somebody in the White House who shares the values that most Americans believe in."

The Democratic ticket spoke at two morning fund-raisers that brought in a combined $2.2 million that will be divided between the Kerry-Edwards campaign and the Democratic National Committee. On Thursday night, the joint effort raised $7.5 million at a star-studded concert in New York.

Their comments followed two days of celebratory campaigning through Ohio and Florida meant to introduce the new Democratic ticket in key battleground states. Kerry and Edwards were headed to two more competitive states, West Virginia and New Mexico, before rounding out their first campaign swing together in Edwards' home state of North Carolina this weekend.

At the first of the two fund raisers, Kerry and Edwards promised a mostly female crowd of 1,500 donors that they would, as Edwards said, give women "the respect and dignity they're entitled to."

"He will stand up, fight for and protect every day he's in the White House a woman's right to choose," Edwards vowed.

Their wives and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., stood on stage next to them. Praising Teresa Heinz Kerry and Elizabeth Edwards as "strong, thoughtful, loving women," Kerry joked, "We came here for one reason today — to stand here as living proof that both of us married up!"

PLEAZEEEEEEEE !! ASK MRS. TEREZA HEINZE HOW MANY ENRON SHARES SHE OWNS? 250,000? OH, DID SHE WROTE THAT OFF HER INCOME TAXES?? THE RICHS ALWAY GET OFF (TAXES) WITH WRITE OFFS!!!

Teresa Heinz Kerry: Bag Lady for the Radical Left

Teresa Heinz Kerry: Bag Lady for the Radical Left By Ben Johnson FrontPageMagazine.com | February 13, 2004

"...Teresa Heinz Kerry has financed the secretive Tides Foundation to the tune of more than $4 million over the years. The Tides Foundation, a “charity” established in 1976 by antiwar leftist activist Drummond Pike, distributes millions of dollars in grants every year to political organizations advocating far-Left causes. The Tides Foundation and its closely allied Tides Center, which was spun off from the Foundation in 1996 but run by Drummond Pike, distributed nearly $66 million in grants in 2002 alone. In all, Tides has distributed more than $300 million for the Left. These funds went to rabid antiwar demonstrators, anti-trade demonstrators, domestic Islamist organizations, pro-terrorists legal groups, environmentalists, abortion partisans, extremist homosexual activists and open borders advocates..."

"...Tides Foundation is a major source of revenue for some of the most extreme groups on the Left. Tides allows donors to anonymously contribute money to a host of causes; the donor simply makes the check out to Tides and instructs the Foundation where to forward the money. Tides does so, for a nominal fee. Drummond Pike told The Chronicle of Philanthropy, “Anonymity is very important to most of the people we work with.” That becomes understandable when one views the list of Tides grant recipients. And who are the beneficiaries of this money?

The Antiwar Movement

"The grant recipients of the Tides Foundation, to which Kerry’s wife has steered more than $4 billion in “charitable” funds, understand no such nuance.

Tides established the Iraq Peace Fund and the Peace Strategies Fund to fund the antiwar movement. These projects fueled such hysterical protest organizations as MoveOn.org, the website that recently featured two separate commercials portraying George W. Bush as Adolf Hitler. (Howard Dean, not Kerry, won MoveOn.org’s “virtual primary.”)

Navy Challenging Kerry's Medals

The United States Navy is challenging the authenticity of Sen. John Kerry's Vietnam War medals, in a development that could prove to be the most damaging yet to the embattled Democrat's presidential campaign.

A Navy spokesman is calling Kerry's Silver Star citation with Combat V "incorrect" as it appears on his campaign Web site, explaining in an interview with Chicago Sun-Times reporter Thomas Lipscomb that the Navy has never issued a Combat V at any time for the Silver Star.


Story Continues Below



The Navy also is questioning the listing on Kerry’s Web site of four bronze campaign stars for his service in Vietnam. The official naval record credits Kerry with just two Vietnam campaigns.
"That is sufficient for the wearing of the Vietnam Service Medal for one campaign bearing one campaign star for the additional campaign — not four," reports Lipscomb in today's New York Sun.

Kerry's campaign has repeatedly cited the Navy as the ultimate authority on the candidate's war record, saying the Navy wouldn't have awarded him medals he didn't deserve.


But with the Navy now publicly challenging Kerry's decorations, that defense has been rendered inoperative.

Noting that Kerry has refused to authorize the release of his full military records, the legal watchdog group Judicial Watch called on Kerry this week to remove any questionable citations from his Web site pending a formal investigation by the Navy.

"It is to your best interest to have your record in good order," Gen. Thomas Wilkerson, the president of the U.S. Naval Institute, told Lipscomb. "If it is wrong, you are accountable. And if you use it to advance your career, it is even more important.”

We're really getting battered here on the Gulf Coast in America ... despite all of the anti-American rhetoric in the world today, please let me say thank you to all the world who lent a hand with Hurricane Katrina. Now that we have Rita bearing down us, I'll simply say thanks again. Despite our president stepping on his d!ck ( like refusing aid from Cuba...)on a regular basis, there are Americans who are grateful. And perhaps Gordon Sinclair is mildly pleased as well.
