    In addition to major telecommunications firms aiming to influence the public debate on net neutrality, there’s the Ford Foundation, the second-largest private foundation in the world. “If you are a foundation for justice in the world, and you don’t understand that the Internet is going to be a major battleground in this century, and you’re not engaged in that fight and supporting people who are concerned about access and security, you’re going to be left out of one of the most important justice issues of the day,” Foundation President Darren Walker told the Council on Foreign Relations this summer. “And...

  • 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...

    The offices of a Dallas law firm representing a high-profile State Department whistleblower were broken into last weekend. Burglars stole three computers and broke into the firm's file cabinets. But silver bars, video equipment and other valuables were left untouched, according to local Fox affiliate KDFW, which aired security camera footage of the suspected burglars entering and leaving the offices around the time of the incident. The firm Schulman & Mathias represents Aurelia Fedenisn, a former investigator at the State Department's Office of the Inspector General. In recent weeks, she raised a slew of explosive allegations against the department and...

[snip] In 1981, Kimberlin was sentenced to 50 years in federal prison for a long list of crimes, including the 1978 terrorist bombing that brutally maimed Vietnam veteran Carl DeLong. He served 17 years in prison before being released. Since then, he has become a liberal activist whose work has been funded in part, by George Soros' Tides Foundation, Barbra Streisand and Teresa Heinz Kerry. On May 25, The Blaze published a lengthy expose on Kimberlin, detailing his...

    Forced abortions. Mass sterilization. A "Planetary Regime" with the power of life and death over American citizens. The tyrannical fantasies of a madman? Or merely the opinions of the person now in control of science policy in the United States? Or both? These ideas (among many other equally horrifying recommendations) were put forth by John Holdren, whom Barack Obama has recently appointed Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, Assistant to the President for Science and Technology, and Co-Chair of the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology -- informally known as the United States'...

    Senator John F. Kerry already has a Democratic opponent for his U.S. Senate seat. He is not from the party's right since there is barely anyone sitting in those seats in blue Massachusetts. Kerry's antagonist is Ed O'Reilly, a Gloucester lawyer who, according to the Wednesday Boston Globe, is targeting Kerry from the anti-Iraq war left. And, lo and behold, he wants to know the truth about Kerry's military record and has questions himself about the Swift Boat record and the Swift Boat ads. Besides, like a lot of the senator's tormentors, he is suspicious about whether Kerry is really...

    Here’s a burning question no one is asking: Whither John F. Kerry? He is his party’s most recent presidential nominee. He came tantalizingly close to winning. And yet no one is looking for him to put his stamp on the 2008 Democratic primary or wondering aloud who he’ll endorse — even though Al Gore campaign manager Donna Brazile says that in the early-state contests, “most of the voters would be thrilled to know who Kerry would back and why.” But the lack of an audible clamor for an endorsement by Kerry is more than a bit deceiving, as is the...

As the Kerrys head for their swank vacation home this year without the press corps tallying how much it cost, or the Secret Service following too closely on the slopes, the might-have-been first lady and still extremely major philanthropist has some major thinking to do about the damage she did to her own reputation in the major run that just ended.

But as the election neared on November 2nd, industry watchers admitted candidly that the show, “The Two Johns,” about two multi-millionaire attorneys on a quest to wrest the White House from Republican control, had not found the right mix of hip humor, adolescent angst, and political pizzazz to wrest young viewers from such hits as “Pimp My Ride” and “The MacNeil/Lehrer Report.” Former Vice...

While he unsealed all pleadings, motions, petitions and orders, Tressler said that discovery materials in the lawsuit file could be kept secret. Tressler ordered the file be open for public inspection on Monday. But yesterday afternoon, the state Supreme Court granted Heinz Kerry's attorneys a stay that would keep the file closed until the...

    If she becomes first lady, Teresa Heinz Kerry intends to champion the cause of health care reform, much the same way Hillary Clinton did in 1994. And just like Hillary, Teresa has her husband's backing. In Jan. 2003, Heinz Kerry told the Boston Herald that she expects to be an "activist first lady." And her first priority would be to create a "Department of Wellness" that would stress preventive health reforms. Until recently, Teresa's Department of Wellness had been consigned to the dustbin of wacky campaign ideas. Or so it seemed. Then In September, John Kerry told a North Carolina...

Bush-Cheney supporters in the crowd chanted "four more years, four more years" at the start of Heinz Kerry's speech. The first such group - five or six men and women in their early 20s - left without incident, theater operator Kit Kesey said.

    "Vote early and vote often" has long been the Democrat establishment's slogan. Now, as the party cranks up its election fraud machine more zealously than ever before, Teresa Heinz Kerry has a slight update: "Vote often and vote well." That's what the aspiring first lady said during a recent appearance in Minneapolis. When readers first alerted us, we found the claims too outrageous to believe, but we tracked down her quotation in the liberal St. Paul Pioneer Press. There is one positive aspect to the appallingly cynical comment: At least she didn't say it in a Chicago cemetery.

    The Pittsburgh TV station that aired an interview with Teresa Heinz Kerry where she blasted her critics as "scumbags" is defending the outburst, claiming the word was taken out of context by The New Yorker magazine. "One comment getting attention in the article is a claim that Heinz Kerry called her detractors 'scumbags' during an interview last April with Channel 4 Action News anchor Sally Wiggin," the TV station explained late Monday. "A check of that tape shows that while Heinz Kerry did use the word, it came in the context of discussing what her son Chris called the 'noble...

    I saw on Fox News tonight that Teresa Heinz Kerry says her critics are "scumbags"... well, folks, stand up and be counted. I've been watching file footage of her for some time now, and I am struck by how unsteady she is on her feet in most of these segments. She seems to stumble and stagger with alarming frequency... what's with that? Is she drunk? Drugged? Suffering from a neurological impairment? And what of those outrageous pronouncements of hers? Why was Kitty Dukakis's treatment for alcoholism and depression a subject for grave concern during her husband's presidential run, but no...

    In an interview of Teresa Heinz Kerry ("The Candidate's Wife," written by Judith Thurman) posted September 20, 2004 at, we learn a little more than we previously knew about Ms. Kerry's habit of letting insults fly without restraint or apology. Her angry retort to a reporter from a perceived "right-wing" Pittsburgh newspaper (" shove it!") is the stuff of Presidential campaign legend. Courtesy of Ms. Thurman, we now have this additional nugget: [Heinz Kerry] dismissed voters skeptical of her husband’s health-care proposals as “idiots,” and, in a television interview with a Pittsburgh anchorwoman, employed the word “scumbags” to describe...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) - Teresa Heinz Kerry, wife of Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry (news - web sites), said that President George W. Bush (news - web sites)'s policies have taken educational and health care opportunities from US Latinos as they grew poorer. She said that under the Bush administration about 50 percent of Hispanic students have been unable to finish high school and that one out of three Latinos lacks health insurance. "The price of this president's failed health care policies is paid in the coin of human suffering, and for Latinos, that price is far too high," Teresa Heinz...

    LANCASTER, Pa. - Teresa Heinz Kerry said Wednesday that "only an idiot" would fail to support her husband's health care plan. "Of course, there are idiots," Heinz Kerry, the wife of Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry, told the (Lancaster) Intelligencer Journal for Thursday's editions. Kerry's proposal includes health care subsidies for children, the unemployed, small companies and more; and government assistance to insurers and employers that keep premiums for workers down. If Kerry is elected, Heinz Kerry predicted that opponents of his health care plan would be voted out of office. "Only an idiot wouldn't like this," she said. Heinz...

    While sipping a Pimm's Cup with Teresa in the Deluxe Suite at the Atlanta Ritz Carlton, I had what some down south might call a 'hankering' for some barbecue. Teresa suggested that we send our house servant, Mrs. Landingham out for take out. See, we had brought Mrs. Landingham with us to reward her with a working vacation. She was originally to have her own room, but my daughter Vanessa decided to join us, so Teresa decided that Mrs. Landingham could sleep on the pull out couch in the den, rather than get her own room, that way, she would...
