  • The Left's Tides Foundation is leader in secret political money

    12/10/2013 5:49:47 PM PST · by markomalley · 13 replies
    Yesterday in this space, the focus was on the latest wrinkle in the Left's developing strategy for dealing with dissent. It began with using the IRS regulatory power to suppress conservative, Tea Party and evangelical dissenters. The new wrinkle is expanding the tax agency's activity to impose new restrictions on permissible activities of 501(C)(4) nonprofit advocacy groups and to require reporting the names of donors and the amounts they contributed. The avowed purpose of these initiatives is to put an end to what is known throughout the politically correct precincts of the mainstream media as “dark money.”Dark money is funding...

    Pittsburg Tribune-Review ^ | October 19, 2013 | Debra Erdley and Bill Zlatos
    Turmoil is mounting at The Heinz Endowments, the region's second-biggest foundation, with the resignation of its president and reports that the Heinz family's environmental center in Washington is on the brink of closure, members of the nonprofit community say. Robert Vagt on Monday announced his resignation as president of The Heinz Endowments — the fourth key executive to leave this year. Jack Kime, vice president of finance and administration, retired in January, and Caren Glotfelty, senior director of the environmental program at Heinz, and Douglas L. Root, communications director, left in August. Shake-ups of that magnitude raise eyebrows in the...
  • Foundation urges sponsors to shun Fox News

    SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 15 (UPI) -- A California non-profit is urging sponsors to pull their ads from Fox News Channel, because of "a would-be assassin inspired by" Fox personality Glenn Beck. The Tides Foundation, which says it promotes human rights, justice, and a healthy, sustainable environment, has come in for frequent criticism on Beck's show. A suspect in a July 28 shootout with police, Byron Williams, told police in an affidavit he had intended to go to the Tides Foundation's office in San Francisco and kill founder and Chief Executive Officer Drummond Pike.

    By the time it was ready for the 2004 presidential election, the Democrats’ “every man’s” presidential candidate, John Forbes Kerry (aka “Lurch”) was not only Bush’s distant cousin but also his challenger for the White House. (Whoever said inbreeding doesn’t result in odd genetic mutations?) Lurch’s biggest claim to fame is that as an ambitious, young man, he served in Viet Nam for several months then spent the rest of his life as a professional politian — sort of like a ward of the state only with a nicer title and better perks. He was also the only known...

Heinz, 71, said she found out in late September that she had cancer in her left breast after having her annual mammogram and doctors later discovered a lump on her right breast.

    It’s less than a week into the general election campaign, but already Michelle Obama is a Republican target. Former Secretary of State Lawrence Eagleburger leveled the first blow, introducing Republican John McCain’s wife at a fundraiser this week as someone who is “proud of her country, not just once but always.” Obama wasn’t mentioned by name, but the audience got it. The dig signaled the start of what Democrats expect will be a concerted effort to cast Michelle Obama — and, by extension, Barack Obama — as an unpatriotic radical. It also pointed out the urgency to define Michelle Obama...

    Today, the Washington Post editorial board urged Cindy McCain to release her tax returns, repeating a call made four years earlier to Teresa Heinz Kerry. But the timing seemed coincidental, given that Media Matters just wrote a letter to Post editorial page editor Fred Hiatt last Friday. In that letter, the organization brought up the Heinz Kerry editorial from 2004, and asked why a similar request was not made to McCain. Hiatt tells Politico that the letter wasn't the reason for publishing Wednesday's editorial. "The editorial actually had been drafted before the [group's effort] began, or at least before I...

Dukakis, that will review campaign advertisements and publicly rebuke candidates who use negative attacks. Party chairman Philip W.

    Political Color In his new book "Politics Lost," Time magazine columnist Joe Klein complains about today's colorless political figures. He cites Teresa Heinz Kerry as a notable exception, but also talks about the problems that can cause. Klein recounts that at the 2004 Democratic Convention, Heinz Kerry tried to prevent vice presidential candidate John Edwards from joining her husband onstage before she did, insisting, "I am the spouse. I go first." Unable to reason with the woman, Klein writes, a young aide waited until the end of Kerry's speech then "blocked Teresa with both arms, turned his head, and yelled...

Need it be said, again? The gas chambers, the bureaucratic system of murder, the efforts to sever an entire people from their place in this world, did happen, did exist and remains a unifying cause for those who choose justice, now and forever more.

    I am proud to live in a country where religious freedom is a fundamental belief, and where our elected officials are judged by their performance in office, without religious tests. Though the beliefs they hold in their hearts surely inform every decision they make, elected officials are properly judged by the policies they pursue, not by the religion they practice or by their adherence to the tenets of our own religious beliefs.

The implicit afterword: Nobody better try. In her speech at the 2004 Democratic convention, Teresa Heinz Kerry said "no one will defend this nation more vigorously" than her husband, John Kerry. The sails of the philanthropist wife of Sen. John Kerry were not trimmed by November's narrow electoral defeat. The softly accented voice gives pointed...

Liveshot Kerry’s grudging concession speech at Faneuil Hall, after he was narrowly defeated for the presidency by a mere 4 million votes.

    A LIFETIME of hard work should bring economic security -- income sufficient to raise a family, and resources to enjoy a retirement earned over many working years. It is troubling that as far off as this goal seems to millions of American men, it is even further off for America's working women, especially in the area of retirement security. Even as families become more dependent than ever on second incomes, and the number of women as sole providers grows, women still earn less money than men; women are less likely to have a pension than men; and women are less...

Kerry reported ownership of four trust funds, with the combined value stated within the broad range of $430,000 to $2.56 million.

    What's become of Teresa Heinz Kerry? Preceding its Women Who Make a Difference Awards Dinner on March 1, the National Council for Research on Women is featuring "a conversation with Teresa Heinz," chairwoman of Heinz Family Philanthropies and, up until Election Day, the highly visible better half of Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry. "Teresa Heinz will speak to her commitment to women's economic security, including Social Security and retirement," writes the council, not bothering to mention her married name in several references. "I just checked, and she no longer uses her [entire] last name; only during the [presidential] campaign did she...

    The man who sparked national controversy by permitting same-sex marriages in San Francisco has been named the "Person of the Year" by Planet Out magazine, a publication geared toward homosexuals. Mayor Gavin Newsom topped the likes of Teresa Heinz Kerry and singer Melissa Etheridge on the 2004 list. The magazine says its awards recognize the people who most profoundly impacted the lives of lesbian, "gay," bisexual and transgender people. Editors say Newsom changed history, changed lives and changed the national debate about marriage equality, making him their obvious choice: The 36-year-old's decision to let City Hall issue marriage licenses to...

    Failed presidential candidate John Kerry and his ketchup heiress wife Teresa paid an emotional visit to Iowa on Friday, where comments by the might-a-been first lady provoked supporters to urge her husband to run again in 2008.

But according to the Associated Press, the focus soon turned to the future when Teresa announced, "Whoever's up in '08 will not be running against the president, which is a blessing." That's when the crowd erupted with chants Kerry's name....

In quotes picked up today by the New York Post's Cindy Adams, the tart tongued almost-first lady proclaimed: "The job of a political spouse is to say, 'Hey, idiot . . .'
