    The Register-Guard ^ | January 20, 2019 | Chelsea Deffenbacher
    Four years ago, prominent Democratic fundraiser and Portland real estate developer Terry Bean walked away from a Lane County sex abuse case, along with his former boyfriend Kiah Lawson of Junction City. Both men were accused of meeting a 15-year-old boy at a Eugene motel for an illegal sexual encounter in 2013. But the case was dropped in 2015 after the victim refused to testify, allegedly because Bean had “settled” with the victim. The case has now been reopened. A secret indictment was filed Jan. 4 in Lane County Circuit Court, and both men face a new indictment. Prosecutor Scott...

    The transplant recipient, who had been born without a uterus, was 32 years old at the time of the surgery in September 2016. (The patient's identity remains anonymous, which is typical for published case studies.) Her diagnosis: Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome, a genetic condition that affects one in 4,500 women and causes a patient's vagina and uterus to be either absent or underdeveloped, although her external genitals appear normal and her ovaries still function and contain eggs. Months before receiving a uterus transplant, the patient underwent in-vitro fertilization. This resulted in eight good-quality early-stage embryos, which were cryopreserved in the hopes of...
  • Hillary Clinton Mega-Donor Nabbed in NXIVM Sex Cult Arrest Spree

    (snip) -- There is another echelon of society that you and I may never experience. It is reserved for the unhealthily wealthy who have long abandoned the concept of consequences. And, without consequences, these bizarre, left-leaning cretins of depravity have turned to sickening and abhorrent behavior that is just now finding exposure in the media. Such is the case with deplorable Hollywood sex cult NXIVM, whose leadership has found themselves targeted once again this week. Federal agents on Tuesday arrested NXIVM co-founder Nancy Salzman, her daughter Lauren Salzman and longtime bookkeeper Kathy Russell. Clare Bronfman, the longtime operations director for...

    The Trump administration is considering an offer from Republican mega-donor Sheldon Adelson to pay for at least part of a new U.S. embassy in Jerusalem, four U.S. officials told The Associated Press. Lawyers at the State Department are looking into the legality of accepting private donations to cover some or all of the embassy costs, the administration officials said. The discussions are occurring as the new embassy clears its final bureaucratic hurdles. On Thursday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson ended weeks of delay by signing off on a security plan for moving the embassy from Tel Aviv to the holy...
  • Major donor reconsiders support for Democrats who urged Franken to quit

    A prominent donor to the Democratic Party says she is considering withdrawing support for senators who urged their colleague Al Franken to resign after he was accused of sexual misconduct. The donor, Susie Tompkins Buell, has been one of the Democratic Party’s most generous supporters for decades. In particular, she has been a champion of female politicians, including Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Maria Cantwell of Washington. Last month, those senators were among the dozens who called for Franken to resign from the Senate after at least six women accused him of sexual harassment...

    well-known women’s rights lawyer sought to arrange compensation from donors and tabloid media outlets for women who made or considered making sexual misconduct allegations against Donald Trump during the final months of the 2016 election, according to documents and interviews. California lawyer Lisa Bloom’s efforts included offering to sell alleged victims’ stories to TV outlets in return for a commission for herself, arranging a donor to pay off one Trump accuser’s mortgage and attempting to secure a six-figure payment for another woman who ultimately declined to come forward after being offered as much as $750,000, the clients told The Hill....

    The Politistick ^ | 11/07/2017 | Mathew K. Burke
    Even as former DNC Chair Donna Brazile reveals deep-seated corruption within the Democrat Party, a liberal billionaire donor to the Democrat Party is fed up with the party’s strategy of continually using class warfare and class envy rhetoric and issued a major warning to Democrats across the country on Tuesday — if he hears the word “billionaire” one more time, he’s going to cut off their money. Stephen Cloobeck, chairman and CEO of Diamond Resorts, a Las Vegas timeshare company, told MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle that the Democrat Party’s policy of punishing success is “so effin’ wrong.” “When Democrats continue...

    Trump’s team struggles with new ‘insider’ status Annie Linskey Globe Staff December 24, 2016 WASHINGTON — When Donald Trump ran for president, most of the Republican Party’s biggest donors sat out, believing he couldn’t win or troubled by what he was saying on the campaign trail. Or both. Now that he’s won there’s a new opportunity for those donors to make up for that lost time: It’s called the inauguration. These quadrennial festivities are always a time for donors to curry favor by giving lavishly, particularly when a new president is being feted. President Obama’s second inaugural essentially allowed unfettered...

    The New York Times ^ | 30 September 2016 | NICHOLAS CONFESSORE and RACHEL SHOREY
    Democrats denounced it as an assault on democracy and a sop to billionaires when the Supreme Court issued a ruling two years ago that loosened limits on campaign giving. But Hillary Clinton and Democratic Party leaders are now exploiting the decision, funneling tens of millions of dollars from their wealthiest donors into a handful of presidential swing states. The flow of money, documented in Federal Election Commission reports, shows Democrats expanding their fund-raising advantage in the final phase of the presidential race, defying expectations at the beginning of the campaign that Republicans would dominate the money chase. The shift has...

A large number of the largest donors received senior diplomatic or political positions following thge donations, ranging from UK Ambassador to Assistant Attorney General. The DNC released a statement pre-emptively claiming that this was the work of Russia (and reigniting Trump's links to Putin). Probably just coincidence...
  • Hillary State Dept. Helped Jailed Clinton Foundation Donor Get $10 Mil from U.S. for Failed Haiti

    The new batch of emails showing that the State Department gave special access to top Clinton Foundation donors while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state brings to mind the case of a shady Miami businessman serving a 12-year prison sentence after scamming the government out of millions. His name is Claudio Osorio, a Clinton Foundation donor who got $10 million from the government after the Clinton State Department reportedly pulled some strings. Osorio got the money from the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), a federal agency that operates under the guidance of the State Department, to build houses in Haiti...

    His only qualification was giving lots of money to the Clinton Foundation A few weeks ago, ABC broke the story of Raj Fernando, a big-money donor to the Clinton Foundation - as well as past campaigns of both Obama and Hillary - and how he managed to land a spot on the prestigious International Security Advisory Board. That’s a board generally populated by former generals, governors and top diplomats, who advise the Secretary of State on international security matters. Lots of eyebrows were raised when a securities trader with no background in any of this was introduced as a new...

    A major donor to the Clinton Foundation was tapped by Hillary Clinton’s former chief of staff to an intelligence advisory board – despite his inexperience in the field, according to ABC News. Rajiv Fernando’s only apparent qualification as a member of the International Security Advisory Board was his technological acumen, the network reported. Fernando, a stock trader who also was a prolific fundraiser for Democratic candidates, joined the panel that comprised mostly nuclear scientists and security experts.

    enaissance Technologies, a hedge fund founded by billionaire James Simons, donated over $13 million to Sen. Ted Cruz’s failed presidential campaign. For a guy who’s supposed to be pretty smart with his money, the ROI on that one has got to sting. Nevertheless, now that Mr. Cruz is out of the race, Mr. Simons has begun pouring millions of dollars into Hillary Clinton‘s campaign, with Renaissance Technologies donating over $2 million to Ms. Clinton so far this election cycle. Euclidean Capital—also owned by Mr. Simons—has given the Clinton campaign over $7 million in contributions, and such figures are likely to...
