    NBC NEWS ^ | 11-9-2017 | KEN DILANIAN and JONATHAN ALLEN
    After a business meeting before the Miss Universe Pageant in 2013, a Russian participant offered to "send five women" to Donald Trump's hotel room in Moscow, his longtime bodyguard told Congress this week, according to three sources who were present for the interview. Two of the sources said the bodyguard, Keith Schiller, viewed the offer as a joke, and immediately responded, "We don't do that type of stuff." The two sources said Schiller's comments came in the context of him adamantly disputing the allegations made in the Trump dossier, written by a former British intelligence operative, which describes Trump having...

    THIS IS THE SECOND JAMES O'KEEFE VIDEO! And it is EXPLOSIVE!!! -- New video released Thursday afternoon indicates National Public Radio intended to accept a $5 million donation from fictitious Muslim Brotherhood front group Muslim Education Action Center (MEAC) Trust – and that the publicly funded radio network might have helped MEAC make the donation anonymously to protect it from a federal government audit. When a man posing as Ibrahim Kasaam asked, “It sounded like you were saying NPR would be able to shield us from a government audit, is that correct?” NPR’s senior director of institutional giving, Betsy Liley,...

    Shaughn Adeleye, one of the men who acted as a representative of the fake Muslim Brotherhood front organization that spawned the National Public Radio (NPR) sting videos conservative James O’Keefe released Tuesday morning, told The Daily Caller “it’s unfortunate that they [Ron Schiller and Vivian Schiller] had to lose their jobs over expressing what they believe.” “But, everything they have been saying is contrary to what they should have been saying and what they say that they are,” Adeleye said in a phone interview. “I do not feel bad for them that they got fired – well, they say they...

    Did the Aspen know about Schiller's problems when they agreed to hire him? I noticed that the web cam date for the O'Keefe video at the restaurant was shot on 2-22-11 and that the Aspen Institute's announcement of Schiller's move from NPR was dated 3-3-11. So was the Aspen Institute aware of the video when they hired him? And if they were, does the Aspen Institute endorse Schiller's point of view regarding Conservatives, Tea Party members, Jews, and so on?

    Are you a white, middle class, gun-owning, church-going conservative? Then NPR hates you. This stark but unsurprising revelation came in an undercover investigative video by conservative activist James O’Keefe targeting NPR senior executive Ron Schiller. Mr. Schiller thought he was chatting up Muslim activists promising a $5 million donation to the embattled publicly funded network, and he sought to appeal to them by disparaging people who disagree with his liberal worldview. “The current Republican Party, particularly the Tea Party, is fanatically involved with people’s personal lives,” he said. They are “very fundamentalist Christian – I wouldn’t even call it Christian

    (CNSNews.com) - When asked today whether he thought the resignation of National Public Radio CEO Vivian Schiller was a good move, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) responded that House Republicans will “proceed” with defunding NPR. “The statements were that NPR realizes it doesn’t need taxpayer funding. That's what the statement was about," Cantor said at a news availability following a meeting of the House Republican Conference. "So perhaps the truth finally came out and we are going to proceed along those lines because that’s what was said and indicated by that organization. "As far as individual statements that he...

    ...Vivian Schiller resigned as chief executive officer of National Public Radio. “I’m told by sources that she was forced out,” NPR’s media correspondent, David Folkenflik, has reported.

Two years later, she earned a master’s degree in Russian at Middlebury College. Her first journalism gig was translating Russian in the former Soviet Union for Turner Broadcasting. For ten years, she served as Turner’s vice president of development, producing many award-winning...

    Ron Schiller says NPR knew of his resignation and new job at the Aspen Institute BEFORE O'Keefe's "Muslim Brotherhood" secret taping at the Georgetown restaurant. However, today an NPR announcer stated that Ron Schiller, "told them the end of last week (March 4 time frame) that he was leaving the company to take a new job." Now, if the secretly taped "fundraising interview happened on Feb 22, as stated by O'Keefe, something is rotten in Denmark. Is it possible that NPR found out between February 22 and March 4 that Ron Schiller had been duped and upon asking him and...

    Already under fire from Republicans who want to strip its federal financing, NPR was forced into damage-control mode on Tuesday after the release of a video that showed one of its fund-raising executives repeatedly criticizing Republicans and Tea Party supporters. In the video, the executive, Ronald Schiller, tells people posing as Muslim philanthropists that the Republican Party has been “hijacked” by the Tea Party and that Tea Party supporters are “seriously racist, racist people.” The video was the product of James O’Keefe, a Republican provocateur, whose organization helped trick Mr. Schiller into attending a lunch and sharing what he said...
