Kerry's Iran Scandal
The Washington Times ^ | 10/14/2004 | Kenneth R. Timmerman

Posted on 10/14/2004 11:03:27 PM PDT by nimar

The Kerry-Edwards campaign is headed toward a campaign finance scandal involving contributions on behalf of a foreign power, similar to allegations that plagued Bill Clinton's re-election in 1996. Instead of Communist China, this time the foreign power seeking to influence a U.S. presidential candidate is the Islamic Republic of Iran, the world's premier state sponsor of international terror.

The Iranian Mullah's support John Kerry You won't believe this one! If this turns out to be true, this could cost Kerry big points. You have to ask yourself why would Iran want Kerry to win? Even the Iranian Mullah's have figure out what those stupid so called undecided voters have not!

Kerry also didn't have any problems when Clinton broke the Bosnia arms embargo. Clinton used the CIA to send the mujahedeen in Bosnia over $800 million in weapons from Iran. Kerry was on the senate select committee that did nothing about it.

Foreign money - say it aint so -

It's going to be the proving of it - that will be hard - just as with all the money China spread around -

Socialist Democrats and who knows who in the major media - will come to Kerry's defense - plus others in his "club" - and that will sink any "good" investigation.

If it was like China - they played around a lot with money - to protect themselves -

just ask some so called Repubs. who helped cover up the last time -

My guess is the reason they support Kerry is twofold. First, with Kerry being a relative pacifist, the US won't be invading Iran any time soon. My guess is, that Bush will be attacking Iran in 12-18 months. They're also banking on the fact that Kerry willnot only lift sanctions on Iran, but will do as Klintoon did with North Korea and actually help and fund their nuclear proliferation.

From the article:

IAPAC's agenda includes opening trade with Iran and ending the fingerprinting of Iranians coming to the United States, two measures with pro-democracy advocates say will bolster the rule of radical clerics in Tehran and allow them to more easily send intelligence operatives to this country. Mr. Kerry and Mr. Edwards need to distance themselves from the pro-regime lobbyists who are raising money for their campaign. To start with, they might return money raised by Susan Akbarpour, some of which was donated illegally. They might also explain how they would help bring freedom to Iran, instead of bringing comfort to the ruling mullahs.

Kerry is in bed with the mullahs, and they're just playing hard to get.

But when it this hitting the main media,there is not much time!

It will hit the MSM in December, and then be immediately declared "old news". There is not a shread of objectivity or honesty in the MSM; get used to it. Our ideological battle (i.e. the one for truth, justice, the American way, etc.) will be fought outside of the MSM, person to person, one heart and one mind at a time -- or not at all.

There will be no great rush of truth-bearing articles which will shake the sheeple from their slumber; they will dream Kedwards dreams until rudely awakened by the loss of a loved one, personal property, or personal liberty.

The BC/04 Campaign will have to do a TV ad about it. That's the only way the word will get out other than FOX News, Drudge, Sean and Rush.

An American Nightmare= Kerry elected = the De-americanization process= the rise of the militias to save America from (Kerry the Hun) Patriots will not just sit back and let kerry/commies destroy America. Klintoon wanted to ban all militias why? because they were a threat to his communist ideals and subterfuge. Kerry hates America for which it stands, but loves his communistic elitist lifestyle. Kerry has visions of Stalin and Moscow on his mind(Elitist Utopia) Save America Vote Bush/Cheney 2004

I find a very interesting connection here with this story.

During the early days of John Kerry's work with the Vietnam Veteran's Against the War VVAW, john Kerry spoke at a rally in Northern Virgina just outside of Washington DC. The FBI report of that rally states that one of the speakers was a student from "Iran", I wonder who that student from Iran was and if John Kerry still has contacts with him? And is the person high up in the government of Iran.

I did read something couple months ago in a Christian News Letter, that the Illuminati, has membership from around the world. Not just the USA.

And that some of the richest people in the world are joined thru it. And there are several in Iran as well, that would be able to help Kerry. Because then they could buy him out with their monies.

Kerry is also in the Illuminati. Especially since becoming a member when he went to Yale. Seeing that according to some resources, he slept in a masouleum for a year to become a member. And to receive an indicting members name of: LongDevil on a human bone as his reward!

After doing something like, he's like a hand puppet to all those that put him through it!

Please give sources of your information. Just to suggest such things does not help.

And then Bush will take the blame. I already hear from democrat relatives that "if Kerry is elected, he has to clean up Bush's mess". They hang their heads and shake it like a frog in a hail storm. Its interesting how polite republican's have been as far as Clintoon's mess, we are soooo polite.

No I don't it is not in the FBI record. It would require a news search for the event and see if the article has the name. Or if someone was at the event.

Top among the pro-regime fund-raisers who have contributed to the Kerry campaign is a recent Iranian immigrant in California named Susan Akbarpour.

The Kerry campaign credits Miss Akbarpour and her new husband, Faraj Aalaie, with each raising $50,000 to $100,000 for the presidential campaign. Mr. Aalaie is president of Centillium Communications, a Nasdaq-listed software firm.

These contributions continue despite even though Miss Akbarpour was not a permanent U.S. resident when she made her initial contribution to Mr. Kerry on June 17, 2002, as this reporter first revealed in March. (To be legal, campaign cash must come from U.S. citizens or permanent residents).
