What is Teresa Heinz Kerry’s Nationality?

Folks, we’ve been getting so many Google hits querying what is Teresa Heinz Kerry’s nationality, so here are the facts, and we gratefully acknowledge Wikipedia for the info:Teresa Heinz Kerry was born on Oct 5, 1938 in Maputo, Mozambique. Her maiden name is Maria Teresa Thierstein Simões-Ferreira. She was born to Portuguese parents in Mozambique, which was a colony of Portugal at the time. Her father was Dr. José Simões-Ferreira, and her mother was Irene Thierstein.

She grew up in Mozambique’s capital, Lourenço Marques (now called Maputo). Her father was a doctor, and “Terezinha” (the diminutive of Teresa in Portuguese) led what some may call a pampered lifestyle and privileged existence. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Romance Languages and literature from the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa. She graduated from the Interpreters School of the University of Geneva (Switzerland) before moving to the United States to work at the United Nations as a translator. She is fluent in five languages: English, Spanish, French, Italian, and her native Portuguese.A critical fact for American voters to know about Teresa Heinz Kerry, considering that she could be First Lady, is the fact that she has been pouring millions into the Tides Foundation, which supports causes that are the darlings of the far Left, including CAIR (which has connections to Hamas, and whose members include proven terrorists). Go to capitalresearch.org/news/news.asp?ID=174&t=6, which researches where the Tides Foundation grant money goes. Then do a Google search on “Tides Foundation”, to see for yourselves.God Help us if John Kerry gets elected.
