Senator John Edwards, IN for V.P by flattery

Ryan's Hope

New York politics is such a many-fractured thing.

In a sign of a split among Jewish politicians in the Empire State, Assemblyman Ryan Karben, a young, up-and-coming Democrat from heavily Orthodox Rockland County, has endorsed John Edwards for president.

That puts Karben at odds with his 'boss,' the speaker of the Assembly, Sheldon Silver, who endorsed John Kerry.

Both men had endorsed Joe Lieberman; Silver was Lieberman's state chairman.

In endorsing Edwards, Karben cited Edwards's positions on jobs and Israel.

Since the failure of the Lieberman campaign, New York's pro-Israel Democrats have been in a furious discussion about whether they should snub frontrunner Kerry and endorse Edwards, who in their eyes has staked out a more strongly pro-Israel position than Kerry. Silver was under pressure to do so, but decided to throw in his lot with the frontrunner, who by most lights has the nomination wrapped up.

So the politics of the situation show Karben's choice to be an interesting one, indeed

KERRY TAKES A STRONGER PRO-ISRAEL LINE

by Bryan Bender

WASHINGTON -- Senator John F. Kerry strikes a decidedly stronger pro-Israel position in a new policy paper than he did a few months ago, as he attempts to enlist the support of Jewish voters who have been gravitating to President Bush and away from their tradition of voting Democratic in presidential elections.
In the policy paper, which has not been released publicly, Kerry outlines clear, strongly worded positions on several issues important to the American Jewish community.

He calls for more forceful action to prevent Iran from gaining nuclear weapons, fully backs Israel's construction of a 425-mile- long barrier between Israel and the Palestinian territories that the paper refers to as ''a security fence," and pledges to work to push for a new Palestinian political class to replace Yasser Arafat, who is called a ''failed leader".

Earlier in the campaign, Kerry got off to a shaky start with some Jewish groups.
Last October he called the barrier - composed mostly of electronic fencing with razor wire and a ditch along a tracking road but with some stretches made of concrete - a: ''barrier to peace." [ http://tinyurl.com/2ytsj ]

The NEW paper says building it is ''a legitimate right of self-defense" and ''not a matter" to be taken up by the International Court of Justice, which has criticized the move. [ http://tinyurl.com/ywtzv ]

On Wednesday, Israel's High Court of Justice, responding to Palestinian complaints, issued a landmark ruling saying a planned 20-mile section of the barrier in the West Bank must be rerouted, because the current path creates hardships for thousands of Palestinians.
The Massachusetts senator earlier remarked that he might appoint James A. Baker III, secretary of state in the first Bush administration, a special 'peace negotiator'.

Jewish groups quickly attacked the proposal and accused Baker of making anti-Israel statements. The paper, drafted by policy and political advisers, does not say who Kerry would pick for that role.

With the paper, titled ''Strengthening Israel's Security and Bolstering the US-Israel Special Relationship," Kerry is attempting to reintroduce himself to Jewish voters.
''John Kerry has been at the forefront of the fight for Israel's security during his 19 years in the US Senate," it says:

''His pro-Israel voting record is second to none."

Republicans suggested some political desperation was behind the document. ''There is a key battle for the Jewish vote underway," said Matt Brooks, executive director of the Republican Jewish Coalition, based in Washington.

''Democrats are particularly scared.

This underscores the efforts they have to make to hold on to what was a sure part of their base. The reason for their efforts is this president is going to do substantially better than he did in 2000.

That has them worried."

Traditionally, the overwhelming majority of Jewish voters have backed the Democratic nominee for the White House; in 2000, 19 percent went for President Bush.

The Bush-Cheney campaign is hoping to capitalize on the president's strong support for the Israeli government, the military removal of Saddam Hussein, and the pursuit of the war on terrorism to increase that support to 30 percent or more in November.

In a closely contested election, those voters could prove critical in swing states such as Florida, Pennsylvania, and Ohio.

Some Jewish leaders say that Kerry's record on Israel is not well known outside Washington and Massachusetts.

Israeli Army Kills Two
Palestinian Boys

stuff.co.nz
7-4-4
 
GAZA (Reuters) -- Israeli soldiers have shot dead two Palestinian boys aged 9 and 15 in a confrontation with stone-throwing protesters in the northern Gaza Strip, Palestinian medics say.
 
In West Bank violence overnight, medics said soldiers killed a Palestinian civilian in a similar stand-off in Balata refugee camp, a militant stronghold. Military sources said the man had fired a rifle at troops, who then shot him.
 
Medics said troops shot dead 9-year-old Ehab Shattat and Ishaq Abu Taleb, 15, in two separate incidents in Beit Hanoun, where Israeli forces have been operating to round up militants since Monday. An adult was seriously wounded.
 
Ehab's father said he heard shooting after the boy went to buy ice cream in a local market.
 
"I went outside and found my son lying on the ground," about 20 metres (yards) from his home, Abdel-Karim Shattat told reporters at the local Al Awda hospital, clutching a bullet doctors had extracted from his son's chest.
 
Military sources said soldiers fired warning shots into the air when protesters threw cement blocks and stones at them. The Israeli army said it was checking the report of Ehab's death and had no immediate comment on the teenager's killing.
 
Shortly beforehand, several hundred mourners had gathered in Beit Hanoun to bury a 22-year-old Palestinian killed during clashes with soldiers in the town on Friday.
 
Beit Hanoun, home to 30,000 Palestinians, has been besieged by military forces since Monday, when Palestinian militants near the area launched makeshift rockets at a southern Israeli town, killing two Israelis, including a three-year-old boy.
 
Military sources have said the soldiers could remain in the area for months to prevent further rocket attacks. Palestinian militants fired two more makeshift rockets towards southern Israel on Saturday, causing no casualties.
 
Violence has surged in the Gaza Strip, a desert area home to 1.3 million Palestinians and 7,500 Jewish settlers, since Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon put forward a plan to evacuate soldiers and settlers from Gaza by the end of 2005.

Earthquake Activity For
Past Seven Days - Normal?
By Michael Goodspeed

7-4-4
 
 
I received an email this morning from a woman named Shelby who read my article, "Why Is Israel Taking Earthquake Preparedness Measures?" She directed me to the website for the Earthquake Hazards Program website of the USGS, which outlined earthquake activity around the globe for the past seven days. (Link: http://wwwneic.cr.usgs.gov/neis/bulletin/bulletin.html)
 
Here is her comment:
 
Re: WHY IS ISRAEL TAKING EARTHQUAKE PREPAREDNE....
 
Sorry for the intrusion! I just wanted to say I appreciated your post about Israel's interest in earthquake plans...
I have watched this website for 5 yrs now. When I began, all the earthquakes ran in the 2 and 3's. The big ones were rare...now most all are 4's and 5's and even 6's are commomplace...
It is remarkable that when you scroll all the way down there is a map of the world with all the places they are occuring. I have never seen it so diverse. There are places I have never seen them have an earthquake. Frankly, this is scary.
 
Best Regards,
Shelby (last name withheld)
 
Here is the list of earthquake activity for the last SEVEN DAYS. And let me again make the point that I am not a seismologist, so I am genuinely curious if this level of acitivity is considered NORMAL for a SEVEN DAY PERIOD. (For all I know, it may well be.) Please note that the magnitude of the quake is the last two numbers listed before the quake's location.

Homeland Security 'Highway Watch' Stasi Program Trains Americans to Spy on Each Other

Time Magazine | July 5 2004 Issue

Comment: And you thought TIPS was dead! As was the case with Total Information Awareness, they just changed the name and doubled the funding. And of course there are no real terrorists anywhere so these brown-shirts will be reporting gun owners and anything their CIA handlers call 'suspicious'. In ten years maximum people who refused to take the chip will be labelled as suspicious and potential terrorists.

On a blazing hot morning last week, 75 men and women of the highway — bus drivers, truckers and van operators — convened at a nondescript office building in Little Rock, Ark., to be trained as terrorist hunters. The Department of Homeland Security this year gave $19.3 million to the American Trucking Associations, which is based in Alexandria, Va., to recruit a volunteer "army" called Highway Watch. So far, 10,000 truckers have signed on to become amateur sleuths. Over the next year, the goal is to add tollbooth workers, rest-stop employees and construction crews, creating a corps of 400,000 people drawn from every state.

Waiting for the training to begin, Jo Anna Cartwright, who manages the rural public bus system in northern Arkansas, said she had not yet encountered any terrorists in her job, as far as she knew. "We got a terroristic phone call the other day," she said, "but it turned out it was just the boyfriend of an employee." Her bus drivers pay special attention to a gentleman from Afghanistan who recently married a regular rider, she said. Cartwright had come to the training to learn what else she could do.

The tutorial was led by Jeffrey Beatty, a security consultant, formerly of the FBI and CIA. He started by showing clips of alQaeda training videos. "They are out there training for operations in the U.S. homeland. Make no mistake about it," he said, warning that Little Rock cannot afford to be complacent. "You're getting a presidential library here — for a President who launched cruise missiles against al-Qaeda," Beatty said, referring to Bill Clinton. There are not enough police and federal agents to protect all of America, but transportation workers could be a "force multiplier," he said. "We want to turn the hunters into the hunted," he intoned for the first of four times that day.

So how exactly does one spot a terrorist on the highway? Members of Highway Watch are given a secret toll-free number to report any suspicious behavior — people taking pictures of bridges, for example, or passengers handling heavy backpacks with unusual care. "We want to hear from you when something just doesn't look right," Beatty said. "Say you're out at a truck stop and you see someone hanging out near your truck, wearing a jacket. Maybe it's too hot out for a jacket. Go back inside, alert someone and check him out through the window."

But — and this is important — Highway Watch members are just messengers, not superheroes, Beatty said. The hotline call center in Kentucky logs the information it receives in a database and contacts law enforcement when necessary. It usually isn't. Of the 200 or so calls that come in each month, only about 10 have anything to do with suspected terrorism. Most callers report abandoned vehicles, stranded motorists or roadway hazards. Highway Watch members are instructed to look for certain kinds of behavior — not certain kinds of people. "Profiling is bad. Bad, bad, bad," Beatty said.

Still, listening to his ominous warnings and the bravado that comes easily to the former Delta Force commander, one has no difficulty imagining an empowered civilian getting carried away. And Americans generally have not reacted well to institutionalized nosiness. In 2002 the Justice Department proposed something called Operation TIPS, which would have encouraged not just truckers but also cable installers and mail carriers, among others, to report suspicious behavior. But before the program could begin, it was buried in opposition from the left and the right. Americans did not want to become a "nation of snitches," as the libertarian Cato Institute put it.

Highway Watch, which will receive an additional $22 million next year, preserves the part of TIPS concerned with monitoring behavior in public space. The Department of Homeland Security has also launched Port Watch, River Watch and Transit Watch. Then there are the familiar Neighborhood Watch groups, many of which have expanded their missions to include homeland security. In New York City, government outsourcing of surveillance has even trickled down to doormen and building superintendents, thousands of whom are being trained to watch out for strange trucks parked near buildings and tenants who move in without furniture.

After the session in Little Rock, two newly initiated Highway Watch members sat down for the catered barbecue lunch. The truckers, who haul hazardous material across 48 states, explained how easy it is to spot "Islamics" on the road: just look for their turbans. Quite a few of them are truck drivers, says William Westfall of Van Buren, Ark. "I'll be honest. They know they're not welcome at truck stops. There's still a lot of animosity toward Islamics." Eddie Dean of Fort Smith, Ark., also has little doubt about his ability to identify Muslims: "You can tell where they're from. You can hear their accents. They're not real clean people."

That kind of prejudice is hard to undo, but it's a shame Beatty's slide show did not mention that in the U.S., it's almost always Sikhs who wear turbans, not Muslims. Last year a Sikh truck driver who was wearing a turban was shot twice while standing near his tractor trailer in Phoenix, Ariz. He survived the attack, which police are investigating as a hate crime.

The Highway Watch website boasts that the program is open to "an elite core [sic] of truck drivers" who must have clean driving and employment records. In fact, their records are not vetted by the American Trucking Associations. At the Little Rock event, some came in off the street without preregistering. However, the organization is highly security conscious about other parts of its operations. It refuses to disclose the exact location of its hotline call center or the number of operators working there. "It could be infiltrated," says Dawn Apple, Highway Watch's director of training and recruitment.

What's clear is that Highway Watch is a morale booster for drivers. "I don't want to sound too hokey, but truck drivers are a very patriotic bunch," says Mike Russell, a spokesman for the organization. "It made sense for us to take advantage of what we do every day — which is, basically, patrol major highways through a windshield."

Just three days after his training in Little Rock, veteran Wal-Mart truck driver Danny Ewell found cause to call Highway Watch. On Father's Day, as he was leaving a Red Lobster in Johnson City, Tenn., he saw a young man walking between two cars with an orange T shirt draped over his arm. Peeking out from under the T shirt was a semiautomatic weapon. "Because of the training, I knew to look at his height and his hair color, and I got the make and plates of his car," Ewell says. "Normally I would have just looked at his clothes. But now I know to look for things that won't change." Ewell called 911 and Highway Watch. Local police responded but were unable to find the man. Ewell, at least, had done his part.

9-Yr-Old Palestinian Boy
Shot Dead As He Plays

By Donald Macintyre
The Independent - UK
7-2-4
 
JERUSALEM -- A nine-year-old Palestinian boy was shot dead by Israeli forces yesterday as he played football, local residents said after armoured vehicles once again entered the southern Gaza town of Rafah.
 
A few hours later five Palestinian gunmen were killed in Gaza by Israeli forces protecting the approach road used by Israelis from the Jewish settlement of Netzarim. The army said its unit returned fire from one gunman and then shot four others who subsequently approached the "structure" occupied by the troops.
 
The boy killed in Rafah, named as Omar Za'ran, was pronounced dead by medics at the local hospital, after he was brought in from the Brazil section of the town's refugee camp. Bashir Abu Jlidan, 18, said: "We were playing football when Israeli tanks ... started firing inside the camp and towards us." He said that the boy had fallen to the ground, bleeding.
 
Palestinian sources said a force of 15 armoured vehicles backed by Apache helicopters had entered the town. The army said it was a mission to find and destroy tunnels used by militants to smuggle weapons. It added that it was still checking reports of the boy's death.
 
The army, which was still operating in Rafah last night, said it had discovered the shaft of a tunnel under abandoned stores near the Brazil camp. Palestinian sources said the force had begun to destroy houses in the area.
 
Meanwhile, witnesses said Israeli helicopters had fired two missiles into Beit Hanoun in northern Gaza, injuring several people, one critically. Israeli military bulldozers began destroying olive groves and orchards in Beit Hanoun to strip militants of cover.
 
And in a third Gaza incident, the sources said last night that at least one Palestinian gunman had been shot dead by an army patrol protecting the Jewish settlement of Netzarim.
 
Earlier yesterday Israeli forces launched a raid into the normally quiet West Bank town of Jericho. The army said it had arrested 30 wanted Palestinians and had found weapons, including rifles and grenades.

Statement by John Edwards on the United States and Israel

John Edwards believes that Israel is one of America's vital allies, and that the U.S. must support Israel to help it fight terror and achieve peace. On August 9, 2001, as Edwards was concluding a trip to Israel that included meetings with senior Israeli political and military leaders, a Palestinian suicide bomber attacked the Sbarro pizzeria in Jerusalem, near the King David Hotel where Edwards was staying. This horrific tragedy reinforced Edwards's belief in the importance of America's historic relationship with Israel, and his resolve to stand by Israel's side as it fights terror and works toward peace.

Thus September 11, 2001, Edwards was a party to the Massacre of Mossad

Edwards has been one of Israel's strongest and most consistent supporters in the U.S. Senate, and as President (V.P), he will work in the tradition of Democratic Presidents like Harry Truman, John Kennedy and Bill Clinton to strengthen the special relationship between the United States and Israel and the Jewish people. He will work tirelessly to strengthen America's economic and political ties with Israel - the region's only democracy -- and will ensure that America will do what is necessary to ensure Israel's security, including through economic and military aid.


A Commitment to Israel's Security

Edwards believes that one of the most important ways America can help ensure Israel's long-term security is by helping the Israeli people live in an environment of peace, with safe and secure borders. He will play an active role in negotiating a long-term settlement between Israel and the Palestinians and the Arab states - not just through words and promises and photo-op summits, but through sustained, high-level engagement. He will be involved in these negotiations personally, and will appoint a senior, high-level envoy to help promote peace in the region.

Edwards supports a two-state solution, with the Jewish state of Israel and a legitimate, democratic Palestinian state living side-by-side in peace.

The reason he failed, and the Jew Kerry (Kohn) won the bid for President on the Demon-cratic ticket

 

 All the specific differences between Israel and the Palestinians must be solved through dialogue and negotiation, not terrorism and violence. As President, Edwards will do everything in his power to see that the Palestinian leadership fully dismantles terrorist organizations like Hamas and Islamic Jihad, works to promote democracy (Noahidism) and uphold fundamental freedoms, ends corruption, and stops promoting violence through the media and school system.


Standing By Israel's Side to Achieve Peace

The Israeli people deserve to live without the fear of terrorism, in a Jewish state with Jerusalem as their capital; and the Palestinian people deserve to live under a representative government that fights terrorism and corruption, and supports fundamental freedoms. Edwards believes that as long as the Palestinian leadership fails to end terror, Israel has a right to take measures to defend itself. Such defensive measures are not the cause of terrorism - they are the response to terrorism. Edwards recognizes that these measures, however justified, are not a substitute for negotiations that can lead to a long-term settlement.

To achieve peace, both sides recognize that they will have to make difficult choices. But these decisions must be made by the parties themselves, not imposed from the outside. Edwards believes that the U.S. and others in the international community must stand ready to support the Israelis and the Palestinians as they make these difficult decisions, through economic assistance, political support and helping to implement any settlement.


A Strong, Consistent Commitment, Not Mixed Messages

Senator John Edwards believes that this is not the time to send mixed messages about the special relationship between America and Israel. His support for Israel and a strong U.S.-Israeli relationship - and his commitment to achieve a lasting peace in the Middle East - is something he believes deeply. He has a proven record of consistent support in the U.S. Senate; and as President, he will work tirelessly to use American leadership to stand by Israel, fight terror and achieve a lasting peace, so that the region will reflect Isaiah's vision, in which "nation shall not lift up sword against nation; neither shall they learn war any more."

Floor Statement by Senator Edwards

AUTHORIZATION OF THE USE OF
UNITED STATES ARMED FORCES AGAINST IRAQ
(Senate - October 10, 2002)

I'm here to speak in support of the resolution before us, which I cosponsored. I believe we must vote for this resolution not because we want war, but because the national security of our country requires action. Mr. President, the prospect of using force to protect our security is the most difficult decision a nation must ever make.

the "SAY"kurity of the US of Greater Isrealhell, it's jurisdiction.

the Lies of WMD, Edwards bit hook, line and sinker

We all agree that this is not an easy decision. It carries many risks. If force proves necessary, it will also carry costs, certainly in resources, and perhaps in lives. After careful consideration, I believe that the risks of inaction are far greater than the risks of action.

Why, the nation of Iraq would attack Amaraka?

Saddam Hussein's regime represents a grave threat to America and our allies, including our vital ally, Israel

Only ISREALHELL

 

For more than two decades, Saddam Hussein has sought weapons of mass destruction through every available means. We know that he has chemical and biological weapons. He has already used them against his neighbors and his own people, and is trying to build more. We know that he is doing everything he can to build nuclear weapons, and we know that each day he gets closer to achieving that goal.

Iraq has continued to seek nuclear weapons and develop its arsenal in defiance of the collective will of the international community, as expressed through the United Nations Security Council. It is violating the terms of the 1991 cease-fire that ended the Gulf War and as many as 16 Security Council resolutions, including 11 resolutions concerning Iraq's efforts to develop weapons of mass destruction.

 

failing to cite the 66 resolutions Israel breached

By ignoring these resolutions, Saddam Hussein is undermining the credibility of the United Nations, openly violating international law, and making a mockery of the very idea of collective action that is so important to the United States and its allies.

We cannot allow Saddam Hussein to get nuclear weapons in violation of his own commitments, our commitments, and the world's commitments.

This resolution will send a clear message to Iraq and the world: America is united in its determination to eliminate forever the threat of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction.

The United States must do as much as possible to build a new United Nations Security Council coalition against Saddam Hussein.

Although the administration was far too slow to start this diplomatic process – squandering valuable time to bring nations to our side – I support its recent efforts to forge a new UN Security Council resolution to disarm Iraq.

If inspectors go back into Iraq, they should do so with parameters that are air-tight, water-tight, and Saddam-tight. They should be allowed to see what they want when they want -- anytime, anywhere, without warning, and without delay.

Yet if the Security Council is prevented from supporting this new effort, then the United States must be prepared to act with as many allies with possible to address this threat.

We must achieve the central goal of disarming Iraq. Of course, the best outcome would be a peaceful resolution of this issue. No one here wants war. 

hahhahahahahhheeeeeehoooooey

 

We all hope that Saddam Hussein meets his obligations to existing Security Council Resolutions and agrees to disarm, but after 11 years of watching Hussein play shell-games with his weapons programs, there is little reason to believe he has any intention to comply with an even tougher resolution. We cannot trust Saddam Hussein, and we would be irresponsible to do so.

so the prophecy of the prophets of baa'l of zohar......12 years to meet the plan

That is why we must be prepared to use force, if necessary, to disarm Saddam Hussein, and eliminate Iraq's weapons of mass destruction once and for all.

Almost no one disagrees with these basic facts: that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a menace; that he has weapons of mass destruction and that he is doing everything in his power to get nuclear weapons; that he has supported terrorists; that he is a grave threat to the region, to vital allies like Israel, and to the United States; and that he is thwarting the will of the international community and undermining the United Nations' credibility.

Yet some question why Congress should act now to give the president the authority to act against Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction.

But to skirt the Geneva Convention...No war is Declared....ever

I believe we should act now for two reasons: first, bipartisan congressional action on a strong, unambiguous resolution, like the one before us now, will strengthen America's hand as we seek support from the Security Council and seek to enlist the cooperation of our allies.

If the administration continues its strong, if belated, diplomacy, backed by the bipartisan resolve of the Congress, I believe the United States will succeed in rallying many allies to our side.

where are they?

Second, strong domestic support and a broad international coalition will make it less likely that force would need to be used. Saddam Hussein has one last chance to adhere to his obligations and disarm, and his past behavior shows that the only chance he will comply is if he is threatened with force.

they have not once found ONE weapon of Mass discussion

Of course, there is no guarantee that he will comply even if threatened by force, but we must try.

Others argue that if even our allies support us, we should not support this resolution because confronting Iraq now would undermine the long-term fight against terrorist groups like Al Qaeda. Yet, I believe that this is not an either-or choice. Our national security requires us to do both, and we can.

Al Qaeda = Emmanuel Goldstein

Mr. President, the resolution before us today is significantly better than the one the president initially submitted. It is not a blank check. It contains several provisions that I and many of my colleagues have long argued were required.

First, it gives the administration the authority to use all necessary means to eliminate the threat posed by Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction.

Second, it calls on the administration to do as much as possible to forge a new UN Security Council mandate, understanding that if new Security Council action proves impossible, the United States must be prepared to act with as many allies as will join us.

Third, it requires the administration to report to Congress on its plans to assist with Iraq's transition to democracy after Saddam Hussein is gone.

It is in America's national interest to help build an Iraq at peace with itself and its neighbors, because a democratic, tolerant and accountable Iraq will be a peaceful regional partner. Such an Iraq could serve as a model for the entire Arab world.

OBEDIENT NOAHIDES

So far, we have not heard nearly enough from the administration about its plans for assisting the Iraqi people as they rebuild their lives and create a new, democratic government. The president has said that the U.S. will help, but he hasn't offered any details about how.

As we've learned in Afghanistan, this administration's words are not enough. This resolution will require the administration to move beyond its words and share with Congress, and the world, its concrete plans for how America will support a post-Saddam Iraq.

Finally, Mr. President, in taking this action, Congress must make clear that any actions against Iraq are part of a broader strategy to strengthen American security in the Middle East, and indeed around the world.

ONE WORLD ODOR...HOODLUM HABA

We must do more to support existing non-proliferation and disarmament programs that can help prevent access to the weapons-grade materials that tyrants like Saddam Hussein want. We must demand America's active and continuous involvement in addressing the crisis between Israel and the Palestinians, and promoting democratization throughout the Arab world. We must commit to developing a national strategy for energy security, one that would reduce our reliance on the Middle East for such critical resources.

Mr. President, the decision we must make now is one a nation never seeks. Yet when confronted with a danger as great as Saddam Hussein, it is a decision we must make. America's security requires nothing less.

 

Dan:11:21: 

And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.

Profile: John Edwards
By Shaheen Chughtai

The North Carolina senator only entered politics in 1998

A man who rose from humble origins to become a renowned millionaire lawyer, John Edwards has often been touted as a future US president.

The North Carolina senator is seen as a good-looking populist who oozes southern charm and paints himself as "a champion for regular people every single day".

The son of a mill worker, Edwards bases his campaign on the rags-to-riches story of his life. This only partially disguises the fact that the story of his political life is shorter than those of his opponents.

History is on Edwards' side. In the past 40 years, every Democratic president has been a southerner, from Lyndon Johnson to Bill Clinton.

But though his Democrat centrist approach and pro-worker tendencies gives him broad appeal, others say he is still too inexperienced – especially on matters such as defence and foreign policy.

Successful lawyer

John Reid Edwards was born on 10 June 1953 in South Carolina to a working class family, but was raised in North Carolina. He graduated with a law degree from the University of North Carolina in 1977 and went on to make millions as a personal injury lawyer.

 

Johnny Edwards

Age: 49
Religion: Methodist
Spouse: Elizabeth Edwards
Current post: Senator, North Carolina (1999-present)
Military record: None. Too young for Vietnam

After winning a spectacular $25 million verdict in an accident trial in 1997 - the largest in North Carolina's history – Edwards turned his attention to politics.

Portraying himself as a fighter for the ordinary American, Edwards entered politics in 1998 and was elected to the national Senate the following year.

Pursuing a centrist Democrat position on most issues, Edwards has campaigned prominently for patients' rights and benefits for workers.

He has also been improving his defence and foreign policy knowledge while serving on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.

Politics agenda

Edwards wants to re-jig the Bush tax cuts: freezing them for high earners and keeping those aimed at middle and low incomes. He wants to extend healthcare coverage, especially for children.

he comes after the raiser of taxes, Kerry (Kohn)

Liberal on abortion, he also favours tougher fuel efficiency standards for cars. And the senator wants the FBI to hand over domestic intelligence gathering to a new separate agency.

Iraq war

Edwards backed Bush's drive to oust Saddam Hussein, saying before the invasion that if the United Nations did not disarm the Iraqi president, the US and its allies should do the job.

However, he continued to stress wider multinational involvement, an implicit criticism of Bush's handling of the war.

Foreign affairs

Edwards favours a bigger role for NATO, suggesting the transatlantic alliance could supplement US peacekeeping forces around the world.

He also wants to see a greater effort made to end human rights abuses in China, Cuba and North Korea.

 

Edwards (L) faces experienced
rivals such as Richard Gephardt

Edwards speaks of Israel as a vital ally, but believes the Bush administration should have done more to bring the Israelis and Palestinians together.

He believes the US should be less dependent on Middle East oil. He also says Washington should be less tolerant of Syria's and Saudia Arabia's alleged support for extremist groups.

Supporters say

"John Edwards is one of those rare, naturally gifted politicians who doesn’t need a long record of public service to inspire confidence in his abilities."
- Des Moines Register

Critics say

"Edwards lacks the accomplishments and demonstrated
leadership needed to be president."
- column in the Washington Post

The North Carolina senator is easily the most inexperienced contenders among the big name Democrats. Many say he is a novice, especially on issues such as defense and foreign policy, and needs build up his track record before challenging for the presidency

U.S. Sen. John Edwards at Bilderberg

UPI/Washington Times | June 7 2004

Among the 100 or so invitees to the annual Bilderberg conference under way Sunday in a northern Italy resort is potential U.S. vice president John Edwards.

Reporters generally are not invited and those who are observe the conference group's general pledge of secrecy, reinforcing the view of conspiracy theorists that the elite gathering is up to no good, London's The Guardian newspaper reported.

Sen. Edwards is regarded in Democratic circles as a good performer in his battle with Sen. John Kerry for the nomination to be presidential candidate and so is expected to be a finalist when Kerry chooses a running mate.

Other invitees are Mrs. Bill Gates and likely are regulars Bill Clinton, Henry Kissinger and U.S. Defense Secretary Don Rumsfeld.

The Bilderberg tradition began in 1954 as a transatlantic post-war sounding board.

Ignorance is bliss

Proof of a Conspiracy: Bilderberg and the Silent Media

American Free Press | June 11 2004

The Bilderberg black-out in the U.S. press is evidence that the owners of America’s media are in collusion with the New World Order conspiracy.

The total blackout of Bilderberg in the U.S. media speaks volumes about the controlled press in America.

How could the national media ignore a four-day meeting between the world’s most influential men and elected U.S. officials and policy makers?

“They will conduct the world’s business behind locked and guarded doors,” James Tucker of The Spotlight said about Bilderberg in 1997.

NEO-CONS PREVAIL

This year, with the United States embroiled in a costly and artificial “war on terror,” some 35 prominent Americans attended Bilderberg in Italy, including six pro-war “neo-cons” and two U.S. senators – one a leading candidate for vice president.

“They don’t set policies for the world,” Denis Healy, former politician from Britain’s Labour Party and one of the founders of Bilderberg, told British journalist Jon Ronson, “they just discuss what the policies should be with the people who can make them happen.”

For four days in early June, key U.S. policy makers dined and networked with the people who control the global flows of money and oil. But don’t look for it in the pages of the Wall Street Journal or The New York Times – they also control the media.

While Bilderberg meetings are reported in the foreign press, they are completely ignored by the U.S. media.

A search of America’s leading newspapers reveals that the word Bilderberg appears very rarely, perhaps once or twice a year. When mentioned, Bilderberg is usually found in a non-news article, such as a book review or a satirical article about conspiracy theories.

Occasionally Bilderberg is mentioned in connection with an individual. The Washington Post, for example, ran a May 24 article about Richard Perle, and how he used his government position to enrich himself.

The article, entitled “The Ultimate Insider,” reported:

Perle joined Hollinger’s board in 1994, having met [Conrad M.] Black at an annual Bilderberg Conference, where members of the international business and foreign policy elite meet to network and discuss issues.

Perle is a Bilderberg regular. According to the article, Perle flew with Black on a company jet to meet with the crown prince of Jordan and “visit Perle’s friend, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in the mid-1990s.”

Netanyahu is one of the chief architects of the “war on terror.” In his 1986 book Terrorism: How the West Can Win, Netanyahu broached the concept of the “war on terror,” in which Western forces wage war on Israel’s foes:

All citizens in a democracy threatened by terrorism must see themselves, in a certain sense, as soldiers in a common battle… If we seriously want to win the war against terrorism, people must be prepared to endure sacrifice…

BILDERBERG: THE LONELY BAILIWICK

American Free Press is the only newspaper, and James Tucker is the only reporter, who actually reports on Bilderberg. Tucker has written more articles about Bilderberg than all other U.S. newspapers combined.

The Washington Post has mentioned Bilderberg in 26 articles during the past 27 years. The New York Times has a similar record. In both cases, however, the context is rarely a news item.

I inquired at The Washington Post if the capital’s leading paper would report on this year’s Bilderberg conference in Stresa, Italy.

Phil Bennett, a managing editor, I was told, was the person who could answer my question – but he was out of town.

“Is he at the Bilderberg conference?” I asked his secretary.

“I beg your pardon!” was the noticeably irritated reply.

“Well, maybe he’s there with Donald Graham,” I said. Donald E. Graham, head of the Washington Post Company, is a Bilderberg stalwart.

“I think you should talk to the ombudsman.”

With that I was shunted back to the ombudsman’s message machine where I had started my inquiry.

I then asked Toby Usnik of The New York Times if America’s leading newspaper planned to cover the Bilderberg conference. C. L. Sulzberger of The New York Times was a member of Bilderberg’s original governing council and the Times usually has a representative attending.

Usnik’s response:

Mr. Bolan:

Per your query on coverage of the Bilderberg Conference, we have no current plans to cover the conference. But if the president goes, our White House correspondent is likely to go with him.

Best,

Toby Usnik
Director of Public Relations
The New York Times Company

As it turned out, only The Washington Times published a short United Press International (UPI) news piece on Sunday, June 6. It said that U.S. Sen. John Edwards (D-N.C.) was attending Bilderberg:

Milan, Italy, Jun. 6 (UPI) -- Among the 100 or so invitees to the annual Bilderberg conference under way Sunday in a northern Italy resort is potential U.S. vice president John Edwards.

Reporters generally are not invited and those who are observe the conference group's general pledge of secrecy, reinforcing the view of conspiracy theorists that the elite gathering is up to no good, London's The Guardian newspaper reported.

Oddly, the Guardian article cited by the UPI piece was a disinformation piece by Mark Oliver, which mixed facts with nonsense.

Oliver wrote: “Former Observer (UK) editor Will Hutton, who has been invited in the past, called the group the ‘high priests of globalization.’

“Present will be the odd press baron and media bigwig (sworn to secrecy like everyone else) but no reporters,” Oliver wrote.

Asked about the avoidance of Bilderberg in the U.S. press, Tucker surmised that the leading national newspapers had pressured the wire services to stop reporting on Bilderberg.

Reuters, Associated Press (AP), and UPI all reported on Bilderberg in the 1960s and 70s. However, since these wire services dropped Bilderberg, most U.S. newspapers are left in the dark.

Asked about the change in their coverage of Bilderberg, John Hendel, UPI’s American Desk Editor, said, “We were much larger then in terms of manpower.”

The recent UPI story on Sen. Edwards attending Bilderberg, he said, had been put together from outside news sources.

Jack Stokes in AP’s Corporate Communications office said AP would report on Bilderberg “if news comes out of it.”

The Chicago Tribune, which has avoided Bilderberg for 30 years, reported in 1965 how then Rep. Gerald R. Ford (R-Mich.) had attended two Bilderberg meetings, in 1962 and 1964.

Ford had been attacked for belonging to a “secret group” after he said there was no place in the Republican Party for a secret organization such as the John Birch Society.

“My district is 65 per cent Dutch ancestry,” Ford said. “Just mention that and say that Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands sponsors the meetings. I don’t care what else you write.”

The Tribune piece noted that during the 1964 campaign, the Bilderberg meetings were described as gatherings of “king makers.”

Edwards Anointed As Next U.S. President?

(Conspiracy Nation, 6/5/04) -- Independent investigator Sherman Skolnick has learned that U.S. Senator John Edwards has been chosen by the secretive Bilderberg group as the next U.S. president.

Skolnick, a veteran sleuth with decades of experience, plans to break the story soon, possibly through a Canadian radio station linked with the Cloak and Dagger website. (www.cloakanddagger.ca/home.asp)

In 1991, a relatively unknown governor, Bill Clinton of Arkansas, was similarly anointed by the Bilderbergers.

The Bilderbergers are known as such ever since being publicly discovered meeting at the Bilderberg Hotel in Oosterbeek, Holland, in 1954. Their meetings have since been held each year at various locations. Strangely, for a group whose annual meetings include the world's most powerful individuals, there is an almost complete media blackout on coverage of the gatherings.

Even supposedly knowledgeable journalists at times appear to be unaware of the group. Skolnick recalled one reporter who, upon hearing mention of the Bilderbergers, responded, "Is that some sort of a sandwich?"

But the well-shielded Bilderberg group deserves more than such flippant responses since, according to investigative reporter James P. Tucker, who has dogged their trail for years, it has a definite agenda and is dominated by the ultra-powerful Rockefeller and Rothschild families. [1]

It appears that presumed Democrat candidate John Forbes Kerry (JFK) is quite ill. According to Skolnick's information, Kerry had contracted some obscure "bird virus" years ago and his health is not good. Other perspectives see Kerry as uninspiring and not connecting with the voters. Many are cynical about both Kerry and George W. Bush belonging to the elite Yale secret society, "Skull & Bones."

Thus, according to Skolnick's current information, Kerry has been dumped in favor of Senator Edwards.

Conspiracy Nation asked Skolnick about George W. Bush's situation. Skolnick related an unusual piece of knowledge regarding Bush's recently reported bicycle accident. In 1999, just after Bush announced his candidacy for president, a truck careened into a Secret Service agent riding a bicycle behind Bush, who was out jogging. This time, reports Skolnick, it was Bush riding the bicycle and a different truck suddenly veering into the path of his coterie.

From beneath the surface, signs of internal dissension within the Bush camp are appearing. Shortly after the reported bicycle accident, a weird mix-up in communications occurred when Attorney General John Ashcroft startled the nation with his warning that America was soon to be "hit hard" by "terrorists." This surprise Ashcroft announcement was concurrent with the unleashing, by the Disney Corporation, of Michael Moore's award winning film, "Fahrenheit 9/11." Then, almost immediately, Tom Ridge, head of the Homeland Security, publicly contradicted Ashcroft's dire warning.

A few days ago, a further sub-rosa indication of discord within the Bush administration occurred. George Tenet, Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (DCIA), abruptly and surprisingly announced his resignation. The truth behind Tenet's sudden departure, according to Skolnick and others, is that Bush had demanded Tenet's immediate resignation. In other words, behind the scenes, Bush fired Tenet but this is being hidden from the public.

Skolnick, like many others, is fearful of how far Bush might go to maintain his hold on power. Skolnick is wary of a sudden event, possibly quite violent, in the coming weeks and months. Since George W. Bush sees himself as anointed by God as America's leader, will he just meekly acquiesce to an heretical Bilderberg annointing of Edwards?

Rising Star 
Elected to the U.S. Senate in 1998, Sen. John Edwards serves on four committees in the 108th Congress: Small Business; Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions; Select Committee on Intelligence; and Judiciary.  During the 2000 campaign, he made Vice President Gore's vice presidential short list.  In November 2000, People magazine named Edwards, who is married and has had four children, as its choice for the "sexiest politician."  During the latter part of 2001 and throughout 2002 Edwards engaged in substantial politicking, and on January 2, 2003 he announced formation of a presidential exploratory committee, declaring himself a champion for regular folks.  On September 7 he announced he would not seek re-election to his Senate seat in 2004 "in order to devote all of my energy to running for President."  He formally announced his candidacy on September 16, 2003 in Robbins, North Carolina, in front of the old Milliken Mill where his father, Wallace, worked.

Edwards has taken a number of overseas trips.  In early August 2001, during the summer recess, he made a week-long trip to the Middle East, visiting Israel and Egypt and meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and high-ranking Israeli, Palestinian and Egyptian officials.  He was a member of the nine-Senator delegation that made a week-long trip to Central Asia starting January 3, 2002.  At the beginning of December 2002 he visited Brussels and Great Britain.  At NATO headquarters in Brussels and Great Britain, he met with Lord George Robertson, the NATO secretary general, and American General Joseph Ralston, the supreme allied commander in Europe; in Britain, he met with British Prime Minister Tony Blair at 10 Downing Street and with foreign policy and intelligence advisors including the director of MI5.

One bill that Edwards talked up quite a bit during the 107th Congress was the School Service Act of 2002, S.2392, which he introduced on April 29, 2002.  This would have established a national, competitive grant program to provide help for high schools that require community service.  Edwards' Community Corps would have complemented AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, and the USA Freedom Corps that President Bush announced in his 2002 State of the Union speech.

John Edwards Attends Bilderberg Meeting In Italy Today
BBC ^ | 6/3/04 | Jonathan Duffy

Posted on 06/04/2004 1:40:49 PM PDT by feinswinesuksass

The Bilderberg group, an elite coterie of Western thinkers and power-brokers, has been accused of fixing the fate of the world behind closed doors. As the organisation marks its 50th anniversary, rumours are more rife than ever. Given its reputation as perhaps the most powerful organisation in the world, the Bilderberg group doesn't go a bundle on its switchboard operations.

Telephone inquiries are met with an impersonal female voice - the Dutch equivalent of the BT Callminder woman - reciting back the number and inviting callers to "leave a message after the tone".

Anyone who accidentally dialled the number would probably think they had stumbled on just another residential answer machine.

On Thursday the Bilderberg group marks its 50th anniversary with the start of its yearly meeting.

For four days some of the West's chief political movers, business leaders, bankers, industrialists and strategic thinkers will hunker down in a five-star hotel in northern Italy to talk about global issues.

What sets Bilderberg apart from other high-powered get-togethers, such as the annual World Economic Forum (WEF), is its mystique.

Not a word of what is said at Bilderberg meetings can be breathed outside. No reporters are invited in and while confidential minutes of meetings are taken, names are not noted.

The shadowy aura extends further - the anonymous answerphone message, for example; the fact that conference venues are kept secret. The group, which includes luminaries such as Henry Kissinger and former UK chancellor Kenneth Clarke, does not even have a website.

In the void created by such aloofness, an extraordinary conspiracy theory has grown up around the group that alleges the fate of the world is largely decided by Bilderberg.

In Yugoslavia, leading Serbs have blamed Bilderberg for triggering the war which led to the downfall of Slobodan Milosevic. The Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, the London nail-bomber David Copeland and Osama Bin Laden are all said to have bought into the theory that Bilderberg pulls the strings with which national governments dance.

And while hardline right-wingers and libertarians accuse Bilderberg of being a liberal Zionist plot, leftists such as activist Tony Gosling are equally critical.

A former journalist, Mr Gosling runs a campaign against the group from his home in Bristol, UK.

"My main problem is the secrecy. When so many people with so much power get together in one place I think we are owed an explanation of what is going on.

Mr Gosling seizes on a quote from Will Hutton, the British economist and a former Bilderberg delegate, who likened it to the annual WEF gathering where "the consensus established is the backdrop against which policy is made worldwide".

"One of the first places I heard about the determination of US forces to attack Iraq was from leaks that came out of the 2002 Bilderberg meeting," says Mr Gosling.

But "privacy, rather than secrecy", is key to such a meeting says Financial Times journalist Martin Wolf, who has been invited several times in a non-reporting role.

"The idea that such meetings cannot be held in private is fundamentally totalitarian," he says. "It's not an executive body; no decisions are taken there."

As an up-and-coming statesmen in the 1950s, Denis Healey, who went on to become a Labour chancellor, was one of the four founding members of Bilderberg (which was named after the hotel in Holland where the first meeting was held in 1954).

His response to claims that Bilderberg exerts a shadowy hand on the global tiller is met with characteristic bluntness. "Crap!"

"There's absolutely nothing in it. We never sought to reach a consensus on the big issues at Bilderberg. It's simply a place for discussion," says Lord Healey.

Formed in the spirit of post-war trans-Atlantic co-operation, the idea behind Bilderberg was that future wars could be prevented by bringing power-brokers together in an informal setting away from prying eyes.

"Bilderberg is the most useful international group I ever attended. The confidentiality enabled people to speak honestly without fear of repercussions.

The Obedient Goyim Noahide Rainbow Push Coalition and Kerry and Edwards of the Hoodlum haba

 

Kerry reaches out to minority voters

CHICAGO — John Kerry has been campaigning hard for centrist voters who sometimes vote one way, sometimes the other. But he spent Tuesday reaching out to the minority voters who are among the most loyal Democrats with proposals to encourage higher college graduation rates and rewrite some immigration laws.

Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry talks with Rev. Jesse Jackson prior to addressing the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition in Chicago.

Jackson, Obedient to the master race of shame

At the annual conference in Phoenix of the National Council of La Raza, a Hispanic advocacy group, he outlined plans to allow legal status for undocumented immigrants who have lived and worked in the USA for at least five years and have paid taxes. He also called for a "limited" number of visas for temporary workers.

Treason

At the predominantly black Rainbow/PUSH Coalition here, he unveiled a plan he said would help an additional 1 million students over five years stay in college and graduate. It also would encourage girls and minority member to pursue careers in science and math.

What about the upcoming draft by the whore?

It's about time for the attention, some in the audience said.

"I guess he feels we're automatic at this point," John Yohon Harbin, 56, who runs a Chicago recording studio, said at the Rainbow/PUSH conference. "I haven't seen him devoting as much time to the black community as he should," Harbin said, though he called Tuesday's appearance "a plus."

In choosing speakers for the Democratic National Convention next month, shaping the party's platform and crafting his TV ads, Kerry appears to be trying to balance energizing the Democratic faithful while appealing to voters who aren't committed to any party.

Those considerations could even affect whom he chooses as his running mate. A USA TODAY/CNN/Gallup Poll taken last week showed that North Carolina Sen. John Edwards drew the most enthusiasm among Democrats as a potential running mate, for instance. But retired general Wesley Clark's appeal was spread more evenly across party lines. There was less difference in Clark's level of support between Republicans and Democrats than for Edwards or Missouri Rep. Dick Gephardt.

Kerry opened his speech here with a reference to the 40th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and closed with a quotation he often uses from African-American poet Langston Hughes: "Let America be America again." He referred to his host, Jesse Jackson, as "my friend Jesse." Jackson's introduction, while cordial toward Kerry, was directed more at disparaging President Bush and his administration.

"I'm on a low-carb diet: no Cheney, no Ashcroft, no Rumsfeld, no Bush and very little Rice," Jackson said to laughter and applause. He was referring to Vice President Cheney, Attorney General John Ashcroft, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and national security adviser Condoleezza Rice.

In Kerry's proposals Tuesday:

• On immigration, he promised to eliminate a backlog that has slowed immigration to reunify families and sign two pieces of legislation that have bipartisan backing. One would make it possible for illegal immigrants who came to the USA before age 16 and graduated from high school to be eligible to gain conditional permanent residency and pay in-state tuition at public colleges. The other would allow undocumented farm workers already in the USA to gain legal status.

see Talmudic Amaraka ger toshav laws

• On education, he said he would provide $10 billion for states that agree to increase tuition at no more than the rate of inflation. An additional $100 million a year would be given in scholarships to encourage girls and minority members to pursue careers in science and math.

Kerry also would require colleges to report each year on the number of minority, low-income and middle-income students who enroll and graduate.

In response, the Bush campaign distributed a USA TODAY analysis published Monday that found what students pay on average for tuition at public universities has fallen by nearly one-third since 1998 because of new federal tax breaks and an increase in state and federal grants.

The Kerry campaign shot back 20 minutes later with an e-mail headlined, "Tuition not a problem? What planet are they on?!" It said that public university tuitions have risen by 35% over the past three years.

Iraq adopts emergency powers law

Wednesday, July 7, 2004 Posted: 9:01 AM EDT (1301 GMT)

soldier, Wednesday

A U.S. soldier stands guard Wednesday after mortar rounds landed near Iraqi Prime Minister Ayad Allawi's office.

BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- With new violence flaring, Iraqi officials announced Wednesday a national security law that gives the interim government the power to declare martial law and detain suspects during anti-terror sweeps.

The announcement took place with a deadly battle under way in central Baghdad between insurgents and Iraqi troops, who are being reinforced by U.S.-led multinational forces.

Interim Prime Minister Ayad Al-law-i signed the plan into law earlier Wednesday.

The move gives the interim government the power to declare martial law, set curfews and detain suspected insurgents, according to Justice Minister Malik Dohan al-Hassan.

"The deteriorating security situation ... urges these laws," al-Hassan said. "[The insurgents] are trying to derail the democratic process."

Noahide process

Any state of emergency order issued by the prime minister should be agreed upon unanimously by the Presidency Council, which includes the president and two vice presidents.

A state of emergency also requires the majority approval of the Council of Ministers, which consists of the prime minister, his deputies and the Cabinet.

The law also provides that if martial law is declared, it cannot exceed 60 days or continue if the conflict has ended unless the government has renewed it with the approval of the Cabinet.

"We realize that this law might restrict some liberties, but there are a number of guarantees within this law ... that guarantee the rights of the people," al-Hassan said.

Human Rights Minister Bakhtiar Amin likened the law to the U.S. Patriot Act -- passed in the aftermath of 9/11 -- and said it was prepared "to protect the lives of the Iraqi people."

Just miles away from Baghdad's "Green Zone" -- headquarters of key Iraqi ministries and the U.S. Embassy -- helicopters flew overhead as insurgents fired on Iraqi and multinational forces.

A Health Ministry official said the fighting along Haifa Street has left two Iraqis dead and 12 wounded.

Also in central Baghdad, mortar rounds landed Wednesday morning near Allawi's home and office in what was thought to be an attack on his compound, an Interior Ministry official said.

Five people were wounded, including three critically, a doctor at Al Yarmouk Hospital said. He said all of the wounded were in civilian clothes.

The prime minister's office said Allawi was not there at the time of the attack.

In other violence, a car bomb in Khalis, near Baqubah north of the capital, killed 14 Iraqis on Tuesday, The Associated Press reported. The victims were among hundreds mourning a man killed by insurgents, the AP said.

Late Tuesday, an attack on an Iraqi army compound north of Baghdad killed five Iraqi soldiers, the U.S.-led multinational force said.

It seems that in the Talmud, 'Kerry,' spelled kuf-resh-yod in Hebrew characters, is a word for an unwanted seminal emission

its self explanatory. God said he would sow the seed of man with the seed of BEAST!. Ezekial says "THEY", their 'flesh' was that of "ASSES" and their "issue" (sperm) that of "HORSES" and he's talking about original nephilim. Now this is what I know. 

The FIRST GENERATION offspring of the Bnai Ha Elohiyms were "MUTANTS"!!!. They bore physical anomalies, great size, six fingers and toes etc. Og was a first generation offspring. However, THEIR OFFSPRING, the offspring of the original offspring, bore no physical anomalies, looked human in every way. Og's offspring or Anaks "looked normal"!!!. When the spies went to spy out Canaan, what they saw were FIRST OR MAYBE SECOND GENERATION NEPHILLIM who bore the physical mutations.

 Anaks sons were also "gigates" thus it may have taken a couple generations for the human genome to be prevelant. See, this is the thing here. Something NOT HUMAN interjected into the human genome because their were nephilim. Unless every single offspring of the union died out, then there is STILL A "REMNANT" and that remnant is in the shape of a "genetic defect" that can be seen in "specific ethno groups". THEY, the fallen angels, have "laden themselves with THICK CLAY" in an attempt to "outwit" and fool God!. Satan knows the "reward" goes to MANKIND and not angel, hence, Satan wants to be "PHYSICALLY HUMAN" and has laden himself with thick clay!!!!.

Kerry’s skeleton in the closet
may be the Golem of Prague

http://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/Rabbi%20L%F6w

PRAGUE, March 23 (JTA) — When you run for U.S. president, you have to be prepared for opponents finding skeletons in your closet.

But in the case of Sen. John Kerry, the senator’s past may reveal not so much a skeleton but a Golem, the legendary Jewish man of clay.

Miry Clay

A respected Czech historian is claiming that the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee may be a descendant of the great Rabbi Judah Loew (1520-1609), a famous Kabbalist, philosopher and talmudist known as the Maharal of Prague.

Loew, who is buried in Prague’s old Jewish cemetery, is said to have created the Golem to protect Prague’s Jewish community from outside threats. The Golem, as legend has it, was a faithful servant until Loew was forced to drain the creature of its life force after it developed an ego and disobeyed its creator.

a demon Nephilim

Kerry already is aware of his Jewish roots, having learned recently that his paternal grandfather was a German Jew born in 1873 in the north Moravian town of Horni Benesov who later emigrated to the United States. Further research established that the Massachusetts senator’s oldest known Czech Jewish ancestor is Bernhard Loew, born in 1771 in the south Moravian town of Boskovice.

But local historian Jaroslav Bransky has dug deeper into Bernhard Loew’s past — and says there is strong evidence to indicate that Kerry is related to Judah Loew’s brother, Sinai.

Sin-ai

“Everything is showing that Kerry’s family is descended from Sinai,” said Bransky, who has written several books on the once thriving Jewish community in Boskovice.

Bransky believes that the family tree leads from Sinai, one of three older brothers of Rabbi Loew, to Josefina Loew, one of Kerry’s great-grandmothers.

Little is known about Sinai. History books have focused on his more famous brother who, even centuries after his death, draws large crowds to Prague’s Jewish Quarter.

Bransky reached his conclusion by using local archival material and epitaphs from gravestones at Boskovice’s Jewish cemetery, one of the largest in the country. But he says his search was hampered by the destruction of town records in an early-19th-century fire.

“I can’t precisely prove everything because there are some gaps in the chain,” Bransky said. “But I plan to continue on this research, and there are other genealogical sources which I have not examined yet.”

Tomas Kraus, executive director of the Czech Federation of Jewish Communities, welcomed Bransky’s research but said previous experience had shown that caution is required.

“There are people in Israel who claimed to have the full family tree of Rabbi Loew, but the tree showed that one of his descendants was killed at Stalingrad fighting as a German soldier,” Kraus said. “Loew’s family history is very complicated and at the moment we don’t have much more than speculation.”

Bransky says he is more interested in the Loew family than the Kerry connection.

“I don’t have any Jewish roots myself, but I have been interested in the topic of Jews in Boskovice since the 1960s because my father and I were both born in the Jewish Quarter of the town and I spent my childhood surrounded by Jewish friends.”

Town records show that Jews were living in Boskovice as early as the mid-15th century. The town’s Jewish cemetery officially dates back to the 17th century, although Bransky believes there was an earlier cemetery in the same place during the 15th century.

According to the Bohemia-Moravia Special Interest Group, which conducts research into Jewish history, more than 1,800 Jews lived in the town around 1850. It was one of the biggest Jewish communities in Moravia at the time. However, the community was later torn apart by the Holocaust. Only 14 of 458 Boskovice Jews deported to concentration camps survived the war.

Bransky, 75, says he will never forget those who died in the Holocaust. “I was very sorry when the Jewish population was removed in transports during the war. Afterward the town felt like a desert,” Bransky added.

Kraus said he would be delighted if evidence does prove Kerry’s link to Rabbi Loew.

“Mr. Kerry would be welcome to come to Prague, whether or not he wins the election in the United States. We would be very happy, as we are in other cases, to help him find out more about his family,” Kraus said.

A Cabalist Jew of Talmud Bavli, Quabalah, Skull and Bones, a "Raiser of Taxes" for the Hoodlum haha, the Mirey Clay, mixed with mankind, who will be slain in a few days, not by anger or by wrath ? To be succeeded by one who is given the Kingdom by flattery, V.P Edwards, who will make an image to Kerry (JFK) after Kerry is miraculously "Resurrected? A Golem of the Nephilim ?

Fervent and curious attracted by legend of Golem

http://www.jewishsf.com/content/2-0-/module/displaystory/story_id/13040/format/html/displaystory.html

BRAM D. EISENTHAL
Jewish Telegraphic Agency

PRAGUE -- The stately Charles Bridge transports travelers into old Jewish Town here. Built in 1357 by King Charles IV and lined with 30 magnificent baroque statues, the bridge is also a kind of portal back in time.

A centuries-old debate over whether a creature once lived at one end of this Gothic bridge makes the journey even more mysterious.

In the late 1500s, Prague's Rabbi Judah Loew (1520-1609), one of the most respected and beloved sages in Eastern Europe, is said to have built a man of clay, which he called the Golem.

Dan:2:43: 

And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.

 

The Jews of ancient Prague had lived in this city for 600 years by then, arriving as merchants in the 10th century. By the 1300s, however, the burgeoning community was confined to the walled Jewish Town.

Loew, also known as the Maharal, feared for the safety of his community. As a practitioner of Kabbalah, or Jewish mysticism, he decided to breathe life into a clay creature. This protector would be summoned when needed, while otherwise laboring in the Alt Neu -- or Old New -- Synagogue.

Unfortunately, after performing some heroic feats of rescue, the Golem became infused with ego and disobeyed its creator. Loew managed to trick the Golem and cause its life force to disperse.

the creature created by a shemgod, rebelled and was cast out

The legend goes on to say that the Golem's body has been kept in the attic of the synagogue ever since.

But did the Golem actually exist?

"Many do come to Prague attracted by the legends, especially many Chassidic Jews," said Leo Pavlat, the director of Prague's Jewish Museum. "Twice I was woken in the middle of the night when some people called, asking that I take them to the roof of the Alt Neu shul to see the Golem. I managed to convince them that he didn't exist."

Pavlat scoffed when told that many consider the Golem to have been a living, breathing creature. He also said that Loew was not a kabbalist. There is "no actual link" between the rabbi and Kabbalah, he asserted.

These denials provoked a pointed response from a leading Canadian Chassidic leader, Rabbi Moishe New, director of the Montreal Torah Centre. The rabbi is a noted authority on Kabbalah, giving lectures and teaching classes on the subject to beginners and veterans alike.

"The Talmud recalls instances where sages fashioned golems for the protection of Jewish lives, much as the Maharal did," New said.

"The body of the Golem was infused with a soul, becoming a type of angel enclosed in a man-made body. Angels are considered to be like creatures or animals in daily Jewish prayer. They have no free choice and are not capable of making moral decisions. They are spiritual robots, subservient to their makers."

Uh....jewish fable, for their nephilim freely and willfully rejected the Creator

And the Maharal certainly did practice Kabbalah, New also stressed.

"He was an outstanding kabbalist, philosopher and talmudist and wrote an entire series of books, 20 in all, based on Kabbalah. They were called 'Gevurot Hashem,' or the Might of God. Rabbi Loew's genius was that he expressed kabbalistic teachings in a rational manner, thus making it accessible to the masses.

"As a matter of fact, the Chassidic movement owes its inception, to a significant degree, to his teachings."

But what of the existence of the Golem of legend? The tale was certainly inspirational enough to cause German Czech journalist Franz Klutschak, in 1838, to write a story titled "The Golam and Rabbi Loew," for a popular periodical, Panorama des Universums.

In 1847, the Galerie der Sippurim, published by Prague bookseller Wolf Pascheles, mentions Loew's Golem amongst its many fairy tales about famous Jews. A 1915 bestseller by Vienna-born Gustav Meyrink featured the Golem as well.

Even Nobel laureate Isaac Bashevis Singer got into the act, publishing his English version of "The Golem" in 1982. He had written the Yiddish original for the Jewish Daily Forward in 1969, with his Prague protagonist a kabbalist named Rabbi Leib.

The motion-picture world also got into the act with two German silent movies, a 1914 version co-directed by the film's star and co-producer, Paul Wegener, followed by another in 1920, also featuring Wegener.

Visiting Prague, it's easy to get caught up in the legend, with two sites of interest to Golem-seekers.

The unforgettably bleak, yet thrilling landscape of the Old Jewish Cemetery in Jewish Town is a Kafkaesque arrangement of over 12,000 stones dating back to the 15th century. Bodies are buried vertically in rows of 12, as Jews were not allowed to inter their dead anyplace else. Many stones are tilted, pointing like jagged shards of glass.

While many of the city's renowned leaders are buried here, the prize is the grave of the Maharal himself. It is probably the most visited Jewish site in Prague, and like Jerusalem's Western Wall, is filled with notes of prayer and hope thrust into every nook and cranny.

Then there is the nearby Alt Neu Synagogue itself. Dating to 1280, it is the oldest Jewish house of worship in Europe and one of Prague's oldest Gothic buildings. Services have been held continuously for over 700 years, with the exception of World War II.

Worshippers can gaze at the vaulted ceiling, wondering whether the Golem is in the attic, as purported.

"Certainly, the Golem's existence was witnessed by the people of that time and forms part of the oral history of the Jewish people," New said.

As to where its body lies, the rabbi sticks to the legend.

"It is in the attic of the Alt Neu Synagogue, under piles of weathered old holy books. The body may be crumbled by now, but that is the tradition."

As to why community leaders like Pavlat continue to deny the Golem's existence, New can only offer an educated guess.

"The Maharal would not have wished it to be venerated, and it has therefore been kept a guarded secret over the centuries. That is probably the motive for not showing the body."

 

The "Tax" Man Cometh, watch the whore of Babylon wail

Dan:11:20: Then shall stand up in his estate a raiser of taxes in the glory of the kingdom: but within few days he shall be destroyed, neither in anger, nor in battle.

Kerry's paternal grandfather, Frederick A. Kerry (born Fritz Kohn), was born in the town of Horni Benesov, Austria-Hungary (in what is now the Moravian-Silesian Region of the Czech Republic), and grew up in Mödling (a small town near Vienna, Austria). 

Friend of the theosophist of Talmud Bavli, Quabalah,  Hitler?

 

He immigrated to the US arriving at Ellis Island with his wife Ida (née Loewe, who was born in Budapest, Hungary) and son Erich on May 18, 1905. In Illinois, Mildred was born (c. 1910) and in Massachusetts, Richard was born (c. 1916). The Kerry-Kohns were German-speaking Jews, but the family concealed its background upon migrating to the United States, and raised the Kerry children as Catholics. 

the normal deception, posing as Christians

 

A Czech historian has shown that Ida is a descendant of Sinai Loew, one of three older brothers of Rabbi Judah Loew (1525-August 22, 1609), a famous Kabbalist, philosopher and talmudist known as the Maharal of Prague.

Two of Ida's siblings, Otto Loewe and Jenni Loewe, died in the Nazi concentration camps (Theresienstadt and Treblinka, respectively), after being deported from Vienna in 1942, about a year before Kerry's birth.

I've got some ocean front property on mars. Why would they conceal their name coming to Amaraka ?

 Frederick committed suicide on November 23, 1921, by gunshot to the head at the Copley Plaza Hotel in Boston. His second son, Richard, was only six at the time.

Richard John Kerry, John's father, graduated from Yale University in 1937. He received a degree from Harvard Law School in 1940, and then joined the U.S. Army Air Corps. In his adult career, he worked for the Foreign Service and served as an attorney for the Bureau of United Nations Affairs in the U.S. Department of State. In 1937, he met Rosemary Forbes, a member of the wealthy Forbes family. One of eleven children, she studied to be a nurse, and served in the Red Cross in Paris, France during World War II. She would stand to inherit (in 2004 dollars) approximately $20 million to 40 million from her father and the Forbes family. The couple married in Montgomery, Ala., in January 1941.

John Kerry's maternal grandfather, James Grant Forbes, was born in Shanghai, China, where the Forbes family of China and Boston accumulated a fortune in the opium and China trade, and became an international businessman and attorney living in France and England.

John Kerry's maternal grandmother, Margaret Tyndal Winthrop, came from a family with deep roots in Massachusetts history, and was raised in Boston. Her grandfather was Robert Charles Winthrop, the conservative Whig Speaker of the House and a senator, and her ancestors include James Bowdoin, former governor of Maine, and John Winthrop, the first governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Other notable figures in this branch of Kerry's family tree are Franklin Roosevelt, Jane Addams, Calvin Coolidge, and ironically, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush.

Childhood years

Kerry has said that his first memory is when, as a 3-year-old, he held his mother's hand while she cried as they walked through the broken glass and rubble of her childhood home in Saint-Briac, France. The memorable visit came just a short period after the United States had liberated Saint-Briac from the Germans (August 14, 1944). The family estate, known as Les Essarts, had been occupied as Nazi headquarters during the war, and when the Germans left Les Essarts, they bombed it and burnt it down.

The sprawling estate was rebuilt in 1954. Kerry and his parents would often spend the summer holidays there. Kerry occupied his time there racing his cousins on bicycles and challenging relatives to games of kick the can. During his summers there, he became good friends with his first cousin Brice Lalonde, a future Socialist and Green Party leader in France who ran for president of France in 1981.

Because Kerry's family moved around a lot, he attended several schools as a child. Many years later, he said that "to my chagrin, and everlasting damnation, I was always moving on and saying goodbye. It kind of had an effect on you. It steeled you. There wasn't a lot of permanence and roots. For kids, [that's] not the greatest thing." He went to a Swiss boarding school at age 11 while his family lived in Berlin. When he visited home, he biked around and saw the rubble of Hitler's bunker, and also sneaked into East Berlin, until his father found out and grounded him. The boy often spent time alone. He biked through France, took a ferry from Norway to England, and even camped alone in Sherwood Forest. While attending the boarding school, Kerry saw the film Scaramouche, which became his favorite movie. He later would name his powerboat after its hero.

While his father was stationed at the U.S. Embassy in Oslo, Norway, Kerry was sent to Massachusetts to attend boarding school. In 1957, he attended the Fessenden School in West Newton, a village in Newton, Massachusetts. There he met and befriended Richard Pershing, grandson of the famed U.S. Gen. John Joseph Pershing.

The following year, he enrolled at St. Paul's School in Concord, New Hampshire, and graduated from there in 1962. His father's Foreign Service salary did not earn enough to pay the school's tuition. Kerry's childless great-aunt, Clara Winthrop, then very much advanced in age, voluntarily covered the costs. At St. Paul's, Kerry felt like an outsider because he was a Catholic and liberal while most of his fellow students were Republican Episcopalians.

Despite having difficulty fitting in, he made friends and developed his interests. He learned skills in public speaking and he became deeply interested in politics. In his free time, he enjoyed ice hockey and lacrosse, which he played on teams captained by classmate Robert S. Mueller III, the current director of the FBI. Kerry also played electric bass for the prep school's band The Electras, which produced an album in 1961. Only 500 copies were made, and in 2004 one of the copies was auctioned at EBay for $2,551.

In 1959 Kerry founded the John Winant Society at St. Paul's to debate the issues of the day; the Society still exists there. In November of 1960, Kerry gave his first political speech, in favor of John F. Kennedy's election to the White House.

JFK....John F. Kohn

While living in the U.S., Kerry spent several summers at the Forbes family's estates on Naushon Island off Cape Cod.

Encounters with President Kennedy

In 1962, Kerry volunteered to work for Ted Kennedy's first senatorial campaign. Kerry was known to broadcast the words "Kennedy for Senate" from a loudspeaker in his Volkswagen Beetle, adding the words "And Kerry for dogcatcher!" That summer, he began dating Janet Jennings Auchincloss, Jacqueline Kennedy's half-sister. Auchincloss invited Kerry to visit her family's estate, Hammersmith Farm in Rhode Island (home to Janet and Jackie's mother Janet Lee Bouvier Auchincloss and her husband Hugh D. Auchincloss, Jr.), on Sunday, August 26. It was then that Kerry met president Kennedy for the first time.

When Kerry told Kennedy that he was about to enter Yale University, Kennedy grimaced because he had gone to rival school Harvard University. Kerry later recalled, "He smiled at me, laughed and said, 'Oh, don't worry about it. You know I'm a Yale man too now.'" According to Kerry, "The President uttered that famous comment about how he had the best of two worlds now: a Harvard education and Yale degree," in reference to the fact he had received an honorary degree from Yale a few months prior (June 11, 1962). Later that day, a White House photographer snapped a photo of Kerry sailing with Kennedy and his family in Narragansett Bay. They met again a few weeks later while at the September 1962 America's Cup race off the coast of Rhode Island.

In 1962 Kerry entered Yale University, where he majored in political science, graduating with a bachelor's degree in 1966. To earn money during the summers, he loaded trucks in a grocery warehouse and sold encyclopedias door to door.

As a student, he lived in a three-room dormitory suite.

During the summer of 1963, Kerry and some classmates drove from Paris to Austria, where they visited an old ski instructor of Kerry's. When they arrived at the Austrian Alps, Kerry insisted on climbing a mountain even though it was only 5 a.m., and then raced his friend down the peak. When they visited London that summer, Kerry delivered an impromptu speech from the famed Speaker's Corner in Hyde Park.

During his time at Yale, Kerry played soccer, hockey and lacrosse. He was also on the fencing team and took flying lessons.

In his sophomore year Kerry became president of the Yale Political Union. His involvement with the Political Union gave him an opportunity to be involved with important issues of the day, such as the civil rights movement and president Kennedy's New Frontier program. Under the guidance of the speaking coach and history professor Rollin Osterweis, Kerry won dozens of debate contests against other college students from across the nation. In March 1965, as the Vietnam War escalated, he won the Ten Eyck prize as the best orator in the junior class for a speech that was critical of U.S. foreign policy. In the speech he said, "It is the specter of Western imperialism that causes more fear among Africans and Asians than communism, and thus it is self-defeating." Because of his public speaking skills, he was chosen to give the class oration at graduation. The speech was hastily rewritten at the last moment, and was a broad criticism of American foreign policy, including the war.

In April 1965, his friend John Shattuck (who would later become CEO of the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation) inducted him to Yale's Skull and Bones secret society, three years before George W. Bush joined the same group.

A few weeks before graduating, Kerry and all of the Skull and Bones seniors went on a trip together to the fishing camp owned by the organization on the secluded 50-acre Deer Island, located on the St. Lawrence River. According to an article by Joe Klein for The New Yorker in 2002, David Thorne remembered there was a serious ongoing discussion about Vietnam. He said, "There were four of us [Kerry, Smith, Pershing and Thorne] going to war in a matter of months. That tends to concentrate the mind. This may have been the first time we really seriously began to question Vietnam. It was: 'Hey, what the hell is going on over there? What the hell are we in for'?"

Military Service

First tour of duty

After an application for a twelve month deferment to study in Paris was denied, Kerry joined the United States Navy on February 18, 1966. He was ordered into active duty on October 19, and received his Navy commission on December 16. After completing a year of training, in December 1967 he began his first tour of duty, serving as a Second Lieutenant in the electrical department on the guided-missile frigate USS Gridley (DLG-21).

In February 1968, the Gridley sailed into war to support aircraft carriers in the Gulf of Tonkin, but was far removed from combat. Kerry had no contact with the enemy during that time. His ship returned to port in Long Beach, California on June 6, 1968.

Second tour of duty

Initially, Kerry had hoped to keep a relatively safe distance from most of the fighting by obtaining an assignment as commander of a Swift Boat. He commanded his Swift Boat Patrol Craft Fast-94 during several operations, including Operation Sea Lords (raids on the NLF-controlled Cua Long River in the Mekong Delta near the Cà Mau province), and proved an aggressive commander.

Kerry lost five friends in war, including Pershing, who was killed in action on February 17, 1968. The death had a devastating impact on Kerry, who expressed his grief in a letter to his parents.

Combat medals

Kerry was awarded his first Purple Heart for an injury incurred during his first combat experience (on December 2, 1968). He was treated for a small piece of shrapnel in his arm and he immediately returned to duty. On February 20, 1969, he earned a second Purple Heart when his left thigh was hit with shrapnel and, again, he was treated and returned to duty. Eight days later, on February 28, 1969, Kerry's boat was hit by a B-40 rocket. After beaching his boat, Kerry chased down and killed a wounded National Liberation Front guerilla, who had been shot in the leg by a crew-mate and was fleeing with another B-40 rocket. Kerry came back to the boat with the rocket and launcher. He was awarded the Silver Star medal for his actions. On March 13, 1969, Kerry's boat detonated a mine (as his position took heavy fire) and his arm was wounded. For his injury and rescuing U.S. Army Green Beret James Rassmann on the same occasion, Kerry was awarded a third Purple Heart and the Bronze Star with Combat V. The last of his three injuries included a bruised arm and shrapnel in his posterior which, according to Kerry, cost him about two days of active service.

Due to questions regarding the nature of his wounds, the Kerry Campaign released his military records. These show second citations for a Silver Star and a Bronze Star were issued by John F. Lehman, who was Secretary of the Navy eleven years after Kerry's service.

Return from Vietnam

Within a week of his receiving his third purple heart, Kerry requested reassignment to the U.S. He was entitled to an early departure from Vietnam, subject to approval by the Bureau of Naval Personnel, according to then current regulations which said those who are wounded "three times, regardless of the nature of the wound or treatment required ... will not be ordered to serve in Vietnam and contiguous waters or to duty with ships or units which have been alerted for movement to that area."

On March 17, 1969, Commodore Charles Horne, an administrative official and commander of the coastal squadron in which Kerry served, filled out a document that said Kerry "has been thrice wounded in action while on duty incountry Vietnam. Reassignment is requested as a personal aide in Boston, New York, or Washington, D.C., area." Kerry ended his tour of duty in Vietnam in 1969 after 11 months in-country. He remained on active duty for one more year with the Military Sea Transportation Service, Atlantic based in Brooklyn, N.Y. All told, he was on active duty for four years, from 1966 until 1970. He was transferred to the U.S. Naval Reserve in 1970. There is no documentation that he fulfilled his active Reserve obligations while engaged in his anti-war activities. Transferred to the Standby (inactive) Reserve in 1972, he then no longer was required to participate in Reserve activities. He received his honorable discharge in 1978.

Anti-war Activism

Kerry returned to America in 1969. In 1968, Kerry's first cousin, Lalonde, became president of the National Student's Union at the Sorbonne, and had actively participated in the May 1968 student uprisings in France, which showed all of Europe (and the U.S.) the power of student protest and confrontation. Peggy Kerry, his sister, was also active in anti-war activities then.

He was involved in anti-war activities while on active duty as an admiral's aide in Brooklyn. Arranged by his sister, in October 1969 he spent two days flying Ted Kennedy's advisor Adam Walinsky to present antiwar speeches. The Boston Globe says "the experience helped convince him that he wanted to become a public leader of the antiwar movement." In November he requested release from active duty so he could campaign for a Congressional seat in the House.

He was transferred from active duty to the Naval Reserve (inactive) on January 3, 1970, so he could fulfill his Ready Reserve obligations. Within three months he lost the caucus to Father Robert F. Drinan, and later became manager of his campaign.

On May 7, 1970, he appeared on The Dick Cavett Show for the first time, to speak about his opposition to the United States' involvement in the Vietnam. Just a few weeks later, May 23, 1970, he married Julia Thorne, his girlfriend of six years, at a lavish ceremony attended by approximately 250 guests in Bay Shore, New York. After honeymooning in Jamaica he met with Hanoi peace talk representatives in Paris. Kerry then stepped up his antiwar activities, becoming a media celebrity for his outspoken opposition to the war, behavior which, according to some reports, served as a great annoyance to the Nixon administration.

Joining the Vietnam Veterans against the War

In June 1970, Kerry joined the newly formed Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW), where he became a prominent spokesman and member of the Executive Committee, leading numerous protests, marches and rallies. On September 7, Kerry spoke at an event that the group organized called Operation RAW, or Rapid American Withdrawal, in which Vietnam veterans marched 86 miles from two Revolutionary War sites, Morristown, New Jersey, and Valley Forge, Pennsylvania.

Protest in Washington, D.C.

As part of the VVAW, Kerry organized a non-violent protest of the war entitled Operation Dewey Canyon III, which occurred from April 18 to April 23, 1971. The organizers called the protest "a limited incursion into the country of Congress."

On April 19, a procession of about 1,100 veterans moved across the Lincoln Memorial Bridge to Arlington Cemetery, led by the Gold Star Mothers who lost their sons in the war. There, on the small plot of grass outside the cemetery beneath the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the grave of president Kennedy, Reverend Jackson Day led a brief ceremony for the war dead. In the following days, the protestors, who camped out on a grassy quadrangle between Third and Fourth streets, took part in guerilla theatre, marches, and speeches.

Testimony before the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee

Kerry spoke before the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee. He informed the committee about the VVAW's Winter Soldier Investigation, an event which took place from January 31 to February 2, 1971 in Detroit, Michigan. That event was presented as having over 150 honorably discharged veterans who testified to war crimes supposedly committed in Southeast Asia during the war. Questions had already been raised by the Detroit Star about the testimony, and an investigation found that claimed events could not be confirmed, some participants were not Vietnam veterans, some were not honorably discharged, some were impostors. Although Kerry interviewed the participants before the meetings, it is not known when he learned about the problems with the testimony.

The medal-tossing incident

The following day, April 23, Kerry and other veterans threw medals and ribbons over a fence at the U.S. Capitol building to protest the war. This became a controversy when it was discovered that he has his service medals on display, suggesting that what he threw were not his own medals. Kerry later said that he “threw some medals back that belonged to some folks who asked me to throw them back for them."

President Nixon comments on Kerry

In a secretly recorded White House conversation of April 28, 1971, president Nixon discussed Kerry with his counsel, Charles Colson. Nixon said, "Well, he is sort of a phony, isn't he?" Colson agreed, and mentioned that during the antiwar demonstrations that had just taken place, Kerry stayed at the home of a Georgetown socialite while the other protesters slept on the National Mall. Colson opined, "He's politically ambitious and just looking for an issue. Yeah. He came back [from Vietnam] a hawk and became a dove when he saw the political opportunities." "Sure," said Nixon. "Well, anyway, keep the faith."

In the following months, The FBI engaged in surveillance of Kerry and his activities with the VVAW. They followed him, recorded the content of his speeches, took photographs, and reported their findings to FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover and president Nixon. In May of 1972, the FBI stopped monitoring his activities, stating in a final memorandum that "It should be noted that a review of the subject's file reveals nothing whatsoever to link subject with any violent type activity... Thus, considering the subject's apparently legitimate involvement in politics, it is recommended that no further investigation be conducted regarding subject until such time as it is warranted."

In 1993, Colson sent a letter of apology to Kerry for his and Nixon's behavior against him in the 1970s.

Media attention

All of the events of 1971 thrust him into the national spotlight. On May 25, 1971, he appeared in a segment of 60 Minutes entitled "The First Hurrah," produced by Morley Safer.

In the Washington Star on June 6, 1971, Kerry is quoted: "We established an American presence in most cases by showing the flag and firing at sampans and villages along the banks. Those were our instructions, but they seemed so out of line that we finally began to go ashore, against our orders, and investigate the villages that were supposed to be our targets. We discovered we were butchering a lot of innocent people, and morale became so low among the officers on those 'swift boats' that we were called back to Saigon for special instructions from Gen. Abrams. He told us we were doing the right thing. He said our efforts would help win the war in the long run. That's when I realized I could never remain silent about the realities of the war in Vietnam."

On June 20, 1971, Kerry appeared on The Dick Cavett Show to debate the White House-selected Navy veteran John O'Neill, who represented a group called Veterans for a Just Peace. He was also parodied in the comic strip Doonesbury

In 1978 he co-founded Vietnam Veterans of America.

He maintains a lifetime membership in the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) organization.

Vietnam War era photos

Among the related attacks, one photo WAS widely circulated to attempt to associate Kerry with Jane Fonda, a symbol to some of betrayal and a target of blame for the harsh treatment brought on U.S. soldiers upon returning stateside.

Claimed by Kerry's political foes as evidence of Kerry's ties to Fonda, the photo is from the rally in Valley Forge, although their sitting several rows apart belies the involvement in both with the VVAW event. Both were among eight speakers at a VVAW rally in Valley Forge, and Kerry was involved in organizing the rally. VVAW records show that four days later there were arrangements for her to tour and raise funds. This was before Fonda's famous visit to Vietnam, and after Kerry's first meeting with Hanoi representatives.

In 2004, a new photograph emerged, that showed Fonda standing by Kerry's side at an antiwar demonstration. It made the rounds on the Internet, and was quickly found to be a hoax. The event, known as the Register for Peace Rally, took place on June 13, 1971, in Mineola, New York, with thousands in attendance. Kerry spoke at the rally, but Jane Fonda was not in fact present.

In attempts to continue the association of Kerry with Fonda, Rep. Sam Johnson and other Republicans referred to Kerry as Hanoi John in the US House of Representatives, although chamber rules do not permit personal attacks on senators.

Resignation from VVAW

From November 12 to 15, 1971, a VVAW meeting was held in Kansas City, Missouri, in which a member proposed that they escalate their tactics and assassinate pro-war politicians. The statement was immediately shouted down by a disgusted majority. However, some groups use this story to paint VVAW as a violent group. VVAW did decide to meet with North Vietnamese leaders, an action Kerry thought was disastrous for the appearance of the group.

Over the years, Kerry said that he did not remember attending the meeting in Kansas City, stating that he retired from the organization at the St. Louis meeting in July 1971. However, there are conflicting accounts, including newspaper articles, FBI reports, and witnesses who have different recollections.

Law, Politics, Public Service

John Kerry entered Boston College Law School in Newton, Mass., in September 1973, within days of the birth of his first daughter, Alexandra. He graduated in May 1976, the same year his second daughter, Vanessa, was born. Also in 1976, he and friend K. Dun Gifford opened a cookie and muffin shop called Kilvert & Forbes in Boston’s Quincy Market area.

Law practice and first election

He was the First Assistant District Attorney of Middlesex County, Massachusetts, from 1977 to 1979.

In 1979 he opened a private law practice, and in the fall of 1981 began his campaign for lieutenant governor of Massachusetts. During the campaign, he separated from his wife Julia, but it had no effect on the election; he won in November 1982, and served under Michael Dukakis until 1984. In January 1984, Kerry announced his decision to again run for Congress. This time he set his sights on the United States Senate, running as a Democrat to replace Paul Tsongas. In his campaign he promised to mix liberal compassion with tight budget controls. In the November election he won the seat, despite a nationwide landslide for the re-election of Republican president Ronald Reagan. In his acceptance speech, Kerry asserted that his win meant that the people of Massachusetts "emphatically reject the politics of selfishness and the notion that women must be treated as second-class citizens."

Iran-Contra hearings

In April 1986, Kerry and Senator Christopher Dodd (D-Conn.) proposed that hearings be conducted by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee regarding charges of Contra involvement in cocaine trafficking. Sen. Richard Lugar (R-Ind.), the Republican chairman of the committee, agreed to conduct the hearings. Meanwhile, Kerry's staff began their own investigations, and on October 14 issued a report which charged that Lieut. Col. Oliver North set up a private network involving the National Security Council and the CIA to deliver military equipment to the Nicaraguan rebels. Furthermore, the network was thought to be involved with shipping cocaine and marijuana to the United States, with profits from their sales going to pay for more arms for the insurgents. The investigation, the report said, raised "serious questions about whether the United States has abided by the law in its handling of the contras over the past three years." The Kerry report generated a firestorm of controversy and lead to years of investigations, hearings, and widely-seen television proceedings, known collectively as the Iran-Contra affair.

Kerry's inquiry eventually widened to look not just at the Contras, but at events in Cuba, Haiti, the Bahamas, Panama, and Honduras. In 1989 he released a report that slammed the Reagan administration for neglecting and undermining anti-drug efforts while pursing other objectives in foreign policy. The report noted that the government "turned a blind eye" in the 1980s to the corruption and drug dealings of Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega, who had assisted the contras. The report concluded that the CIA and the State Deparment had known that "individuals who provided support for the contras were involved in drug trafficking...and elements of the contras themselves knowingly received financial and material assistance from drug traffickers." While some critics attacked him as being a conspiracy theorist, a decade later the CIA inspector general released a pair of reports that affirmed Kerry's findings.

During the investigation of Noriega, Kerry's staff discovered that the Pakistan-based Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) had facilitated Noriega's drug trafficking and money laundering. This led to a separate inquiry into BCCI, and as a result, banking regulators finally shut down BCCI in 1991. In December 1992 Kerry and Sen. Hank Brown (R-Colo.), released "The BCCI Affair," a report on the BCCI scandal. The report showed that the bank was crooked and was working with terrorists, including Abu Nidal. It blasted the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Department of the Treasury, the U.S. Customs Service, the Federal Reserve Bank of the United States, high-level lobbyists, and the Central Intelligence Agency. One of the Bush administration figures criticized for his handling of BCCI was Robert Mueller who, as deputy attorney general, had dragged his heels on the investigation.

Gun Politics

As a senator, Kerry has supported various gun control regulatory measures including:

  • The Brady Bill and mandatory background checks
  • Legislation to close the so-called "gun show loophole"
  • Bans on several type of semi-automatic rifles known as the Assault weapons ban
  • Mandatory gun locks.

It is worth noting that Kerry is also an avid hunter.

Committee assignments

In the Senate, Kerry serves on the Committee on Foreign Relations, Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation and Committee on Finance. He was the chairman of the Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship from 2001 to 2003 and remains the ranking Democrat.

Kerry is also the ranking member of the Subcommittee on Oceans, Fisheries and the Environment and the Subcommittee on East Asian and Pacific Affairs. He also serves on the Subcommittee on Communications, Subcommittee on Transportation (both part of Commerce, Science and Transportation); the Subcommittee on Health Care, Subcommittee on International Trade and the Subcommittee on Social Security and Family Policy (Finance subcommittees); and on the Subcommittee on European Affairs and Subcommittee on Western Hemisphere, Peace Corps & Narcotics Affairs (Foreign Relations subcommittees).

Political chairmanship and presidential nomination

Kerry was the chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee from 1987 to 1989, and was reelected to the Senate in 1990, 1996 (despite the candidacy of popular Republican ex-Gov. William Weld), and 2002. His current term will end on January 3 2009.

In 2003 and 2004, the Presidential campaign of John Kerry defeated Democratic rivals Sen. John Edwards (D-N.C.), ex-Vermont Gov. Howard Dean and retired Gen. Wesley K. Clark, all but clinching the Democratic nomination for Kerry. Kerry is running for President of the United States against incumbent George W. Bush.

Home Life and Interests

John Kerry is 6-feet 4-inches (1.94 meters) tall and has been called the "Lanky Yankee." His oldest friends and family call him Johnny. He speaks fluent French, having spent time in Switzerland and France with his family as a young man. He enjoys surfing, hockey, hunting, and playing the bass.

Kerry's favorite films are Giant and Casablanca. His favorite books are said to be James Bradley's Flags of Our Fathers and Stephen Ambrose's Undaunted Courage. While campaigning in 2003, he read Clyde Prestowitz's Rogue Nation, and Barbara Ehrenreich's Nickel and Dimed.

In 2003, he was diagnosed with and cured of prostate cancer.

Family

Kerry was married to Julia Thorne in 1970, and they had two children together: Alexandra Kerry (b. 1973), who graduated in June 2004 from a film-school in the Los Angeles area, and Vanessa Kerry (b. 1976), a graduate of Phillips Academy like her grandfather, Yale University, and currently a student at Harvard Medical School. Vanessa has been active in her father's Presidential campaign.

Kerry and Thorne were separated in 1982 and divorced July 25, 1988. "After 14 years as a political wife," she wrote in A Change of Heart, her book about depression, "I associated politics only with anger, fear and loneliness." The marriage was formally annulled by the Roman Catholic Church in 1997. Thorne later married an architect named Richard Charlesworth, and moved to Bozeman, Mont., where she became active in local environmental groups such as the Greater Yellowstone Coalition.

Between his first and second marriages he dated actresses Morgan Fairchild and Catherine Oxenberg.

Kerry and Teresa Simões-Ferreira Heinz, the widow of Pennsylvania Sen. H. John Heinz III (R-Pa.) and formerly a United Nations translator, met at the U.N.-sponsored Earth Summit at Rio de Janeiro in 1992. They married on May 26, 1995, in Nantucket, Mass. Teresa has three sons from her previous marriage: John Heinz Jr., André Heinz, and Christopher Heinz (b. ~1973).

Today, the combined net worth of the Kerry-Heinz fortune is reported to be between $199 million and $839 million, making Kerry the wealthiest U.S. senator. Kerry is wealthy in his own name, and is the beneficiary of at least four trusts inherited from Forbes family members, including his mother, who died in 2002.

Kerry has an older brother, Cameron Kerry, who is a litigator in Boston, and two sisters, Diane and Peggy.
