    Last week, the NFL sent a letter to Cowboys owner Jerry Jones accusing hims of "conduct detrimental to the league" after Jones threatened to sue the other owners if they approved commissioner Roger Goodell's new contract. It was the latest escalation between the league and Jones, a schism that appears to have origins in Goodell's decision to suspend Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott for six games. But on Tuesday, Jones abruptly dropped the idea of a lawsuit. According to a letter from Jones to Falcons owner and chair of the compensation committee Arthur Blank obtained by the New York...

    In the late 1990s, when the Clinton White House was under siege amid revelations of the president’s affair with Monica Lewinsky and efforts by Congress to impeach him, it fell on Joe Lockhart, then the White House spokesman, day after day to defend his boss. But unlike many of his predecessors, he did not just take his marching orders. In countless meetings with the president and his advisers, Lockhart helped shape the message he would convey, and he aggressively pressed it to reporters. “He was out there, he was on point, he was wearing his cleats,” said Doug Sosnik, an...

    Joe Lockhart, the NFL’s executive vice president of communications, wasn’t messing around Monday. A former White House press secretary under President Clinton, Lockhart used surgical precision in leveling a shot at President Trump, tying Sunday’s nationwide protests by players, owners and coaches to Trump’s infamous “Access Hollywood” recording from his days as a TV star in 2005. “Everyone should know, including the president, this is what real locker room talk is,” Lockhart said in a conference call with reporters. Lockhart’s comment shows that sports and politics in the Trump era aren’t going to be untangled anytime soon and, frankly, that’s...

    REVEALED: Clinton/Obama Ties To NFL Media Insider By Lawrence Richard 6:20pm September 26, 2017 A behind-the-scenes look into the NFL’s decision making, following the National Anthem protests and President Donald Trump’s accompanying comments, has the finger prints of two former Presidents all over it. It is being reported that former President Bill Clinton’s Press Secretary is now the NFL’s spokesman. Per WSJ: Roger Goodell is an early riser who is often up by 5:30 a.m. Traveling away from home on Saturday, the NFL commissioner woke to an unexpected crisis: The multibillion-dollar sports empire he manages was under attack by the...

Lockhart, who is the latest high-profile executive to depart Facebook following its disappointing initial public offering in May, is leaving 15 months after joining the world's No.1 social network.

    DUBAI DUETS Late Friday, Department of Justice lawyers in the Office of Legal Counsel were attempting to determine if former President Bill Clinton had registered as an "Agent of a Foreign Principal." Federal statute requires that anyone -- even a former President -- doing political or public affairs work on behalf of a foreign country, agency or official must register with the Department, and essentially update his status every six months. It was not clear the Clinton had done so. If his status is less clear, here is what we do know: If Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton did not know...

    Former Clinton political hitman James Carville, who recently touted New York Sen. Hillary Clinton for a 2008 presidential run, is reportedly behind an advertising campaign attacking President Bush for his 1990 sale of Harken Energy stock as well as his ties to the oil industry in general. American Family Voices, a group described by the New York Times as "secretive," has paid to run a 30-second commercial on cable news programs in Washington, D.C., and in New York through Thursday. The ad blasts President Bush as "sly like a fox" for talking down his dealings with Harken Energy, which Democrats...

Toward that end, they are launching a Web site that they hope will eventually reach 30 million opinion leaders, elevate public discussion on matters from politics to sports to culture and, in the process, make them some money.

    George Soros is an exacting  taskmaster. In return for his money, he demands productivity. What he requires of employees and business associates in the investment world, Soros also demands from the political operatives he funds. “Mr. Soros isn't just writing checks and watching,” notes Wall Street Journalreporter Jeanne Cummings. “He is also imposing a business model on the notoriously unruly world of politics. He demands objective evidence of progress, and assigned an aide to monitor the groups he supports. He studies private polls to track the impact of an anti-Bush advertising campaign, and he is delivering his money in installments,...

    The New York Times and CBS News have been caught attempting to influence the outcome of the Presidential election by the nature and the timing of a story out of Iraq. At a minimum, the story was to be disturbing. At a maximum it was timed to be devastating to the campaign of President Bush. Briefly, the New York Times ran a story about a gillion tons of high explosives having disappeared from a storage facility in Iraq. The piece indicated it had been stolen sometime after the coalition forces had taken control of Iraq which John Kerry jumped on...

    The Clinton-Kerry-Clinton “Connection” by Col. Bob Pappas, USMC, Ret. The Clintons are on the Kerry bandwagon, or so it seems, after all, they and their former team are full swing on the Kerry campaign team or in support of it; there are Paul Begala, Joe Lockhart, and James Carville to name a few. Additionally, Ms. Clinton makes periodic statements supporting the erstwhile Senator; and, it is widely known that Mr. Clinton has had a number of lengthy conversations with Kerry in regards to his “campaign.” But, why? It is widely assumed, if not known, that Ms. Clinton has Presidential aspirations...

    JB WILLIAMS.COM ^ | OCTOBER 5, 2004 | JB WILLIAMS How to support Kerry for President Written by JB Williams ©2004-10-05 In order to cast a vote for John Kerry, you first have to believe he is fit to be Commander-in-Chief. Now some don’t believe he is, namely 95% of all the decorated vets who served beside him in Vietnam, more than 70% of all living retired military personnel, and more than 80% of those serving in combat today. But what do they know? Besides, as the Democratic Party points out at every opportunity, what Right do these people (who spill their blood for our freedom) have to speak...

    Heard on the hour's news: The Kerry Campaign is now insisting that the warning lights mounted at each candidate's podium be disconnected before tonight's debate. All had previously agreed that there would be 15 second warning lights mounted at each podium to let everyone know that the speaker's time was ending. Kerry Campaign is now panicing at the thought that Mr. Debater will not have enough time for each answer he wishes to give, and are demanding that the lights be removed. The debate organizers, to their credit, are refusing, since both campaigns agreed to have the lights. To this,...

We notice that you yourself never said a word about those forgeries that Dan Rather at CBS acquired from a Texas guy who is nuttier than a pecan pie and twisted like a pretzel—embittered and deranged, you might say. But, Joe Lockhart, your "senior consultant" was involved with that Mary Mapes, Mr. Rather's producer....

    When "60 Minutes" producer Mary Mapes set up contacts between the source who gave her forged documents on President Bush's military record and top Kerry campaign strategist Joe Lockhart, it wasn't the first time she had violated the most basic journalistic rules. Just four years ago, Mapes was accused of concocting a scheme to help secretly pass information between convicted white supremacist Peter Langan and another federal prisoner at a Colorado penitentiary, a violation of federal regulations. In a Nov. 20, 2001, letter to Mapes and her boss, Jeff Fager, J.E. Gunja, warden at the federal penitentiary at Florence, Colorado,...
