    Joe Lockhart, Facebook Inc's head of global communications and a former press secretary for President Bill Clinton, is leaving the social networking company, Facebook said. 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. A Facebook spokeswoman said that Lockhart is leaving because he decided he wanted to remain on the East Coast, and did not want to move to California, where Facebook is headquartered.

    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...

    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 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?

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,...

    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,...
