    Maria Teresa Thiersten Simoes-Ferreira Heinz Kerry was born in
    Mozambique, the daughter of a Portuguese physician, and 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 U.S. House of
    Representatives in
    1971, and in 1976 he was elected to the first of three terms in the
    United States Senate.
    Senator H. John Heinz was a friend of mine - not a close friend, not a
    golfing buddy, but a friend nonetheless. The last time I saw him alive
    was, oddly enough, in the men's restroom at the Maverick Steakhouse, a
    favorite nighttime eatery and
    watering hole for politicians and lobbyists in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
    The senator was standing at a wash basin, drying his hands, when I
    entered the room. When he turned and saw me he rushed toward me, threw
    his arms around me, and
    said, "Paul, it's good to see you!" All I could do was mumble, "Senator,
    do you really think we should be seen hugging each other in a men's
    restroom?" He didn't think so, and neither did I, but we shared a good
    laugh over his impromptu display of affection.
    Several years later, in 1991, he was killed when his plane collided with
    a Sun Oil Company helicopter over a Philadelphia suburb - the same
    helicopter that I
    often used to travel between Philadelphia and Washington, DC. The
    senator, his pilot and co-pilot, and both of Sun's helicopter pilots were
    killed. He was survived by his wife,
    Teresa, and their three young sons.
    Four years later, after inheriting Heinz's $500 million fortune, she
    married Senator John Forbes Kerry, the liberal 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 pre-nuptial 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 of it. A lot of hard-earned money,
    made through many years
    of hawking catsup, pickles, and soup, has fallen into the hands of two
    people who despise successful 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 anti-war 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 Planned Parenthood, the National Abortion Rights Action
    League, and the Abortion Action Project.
    They support the most violent of all homosexual action groups, ACT-UP.
    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.
    If voters will only try to imagine a woman such as Teresa Heinz Kerry,
    the fairy godmother of the radical left, laying her head on a pillow each
    night just inches from the President of the United States, hopefully they
    will decide that the only way
    these two will ever be allowed into the White House is with an engraved
    invitation in hand.
    As I recall that somewhat embarrassing chance meeting in the men's
    restroom at the Maverick Steakhouse in Harrisburg, instead of mumbling
    some inane nonsense about
    getting caught in a friendly embrace, I wish now that I'd had the good
    sense to whisper in his ear, "John! Go home! Get a lawyer! Change your
    But, of course, we didn't know her then, did we?
