    American Girl's gifts to agency lead school to scrap show Backing of lesbianism, abortion sets off storm By TOM HEINEN theinen@journalsentinel.com Posted: Oct. 29, 2005 A Catholic school in Waukesha County is the first non-profit group in the nation to cancel a coveted American Girl Fashion Show amid concerns that the Wisconsin-based doll company behind the show gives money to a national girls organization that presents abortion, contraception and a lesbian sexual orientation as acceptable. News of the decision by parent volunteers and the pastor at St. Luke School in Brookfield is being reported in bulletins at Masses this weekend....

    The Bronx social-services organization that made a controversial loan to the Air America radio network has been rocked by more high-level staff departures, sources said. Just days after the executive director abruptly resigned following Post reports that the club had provided $875,000 in bizarre loans to Air America, two other top officials at the Gloria Wise Boys & Girls Club have quit. Acting executive director Lorraine Corva — who took over after Charles Rosen suddenly resigned last week — will be leaving her job on Aug. 26, sources said. Assistant executive director Jeff Aulenback also resigned, effective immediately, sources said....

    A top staffer at the Gloria Wise Boys & Girls Club in The Bronx "conned" the organization into lending nearly $500,000 to the left-wing radio network Air America — a move that eventually doomed the youth group, a board member charged yesterday. The accused staffer, Evan Montvel-Cohen, wore two hats, as development director at Gloria Wise and as founder of Air America, a start-up national radio network based in Manhattan, where he was trying to raise $30 million. "I say he's a con man," fumed Hillel Valentine, a longtime member of the Gloria Wise Boys & Girls Club's executive committee...

    After first denying a relationship, the liberal radio network Air America has finally owned up to its ties to a New York City program for poor kids that was so badly mismanaged that the city withdrew funding last month. But NewsMax.com has learned that a key part of that program, Camp Air America, is still soliciting funds on the Internet, despite the radio network's announcement that it was severing all ties to the camp's parent organization, the Gloria Wise Boys and Girls Club. In June, city investigators found that Gloria Wise officials "approved significant inappropriate transactions and falsified documents that...

    Air America: MSM Doesn't Follow The Money July 30, 2005 06:29 AM EST Flap's got a great round-up of links for the beginner to the story, which means all MSM reporters. Wizbang looks at the Drobnys. Macho Nachos talks to lawyers. Thus far only the New York Dail News has run any news story on the debacle. We know every twist and turn in Rush Limbaugh's medical history, but no one in MSM has the time to follow the Air America money, even when bloggers have laid out the roadmap?

    July 30, 2005 -- It's the kind of outrageous story that would raise the hackles of talk-show host Al Franken: A government-funded agency serving the needy lends nearly $500,000 to a shaky political radio network and is never repaid. Except it involves Franken's own Air America. The network issued a statement yesterday admitting its connection to The Bronx's Gloria Wise Boys & Girls Clubs, which lost nearly $10 million in city contracts last month after investigators uncovered "significant inappropriate transaction and falsified documents." One irregularity, first reported by Michael Horowitz in The City News, a Bronx-based publication, was the $480,000...

    Statement: If the allegations of mismanagement and corruption at Gloria Wise Boys and Girls Club are true, it is absolutely disgraceful. As reported in the Wall Street Journal and the HBO Documentary, Left of the Dial‚ the company that the Gloria Wise Boys & Girls Club officials gave money to, Progress Media, has been defunct since May 2004.  That company was run at the time by Evan Cohen who has not had any involvement in Air America Radio since May 2004. The current owners of Air America Radio have no obligation to Progress Media‚s business activities.  We are very disturbed...

    Saline County home builder is constructing a new home, with the profits designated for the local Boys and Girls Club. The Ken Young Co., its subcontractors and suppliers are building the home. Several weeks ago, Cindy Doramus, chief professional officer of the club, said she was surprised when she received the call from Young expressing that he wanted to build the house for the club. "He said, 'My subs, suppliers and I want to build a house on one of my lots and give you the profit.'" She said her "first reaction was that this must be some type of...

    Lesbian bride dolls. Fourth grade "gay" clubs. A king and king at the high school prom. Dating tips for same-sex teens. Bathroom ogling -- and sometimes quick encounters -- in the middle school boys' restroom. These are just the first snapshots of the bizarre new world in store for American children if homosexual marriage is legalized. Most of the major players who mold our youth have already endorsed homosexuality and even cross-dressing. The National Education Association, the nation's largest teachers' union, favors support for "gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender" students and teachers, which translates into uncritical acceptance throughout the curriculum...
