  • Media Matters Employees Are Now Publicly Attacking Their Bosses

    The Daily Caller ^ | 04/29/2014 | Christopher Bedford
    Media Matters employees are furious that their bosses are trying to keep them from unionizing. A union-organizing committee at the liberal group released a statement Monday slamming their employers for “the unexpected and unexplained path our leadership has taken in response to our efforts to unionize,” adding that “the actions of Media Matters executives have placed employees in the impossible position of continuing to produce content espousing pro-labor values for an employer who is challenging our right to unionize.”

    Now that Byron Williams has been convicted of attempting to murder four California Highway Patrol officers during a July 2010 shootout on a freeway in Oakland, it’s time to talk about Glenn Beck. No, Beck wasn’t charged with the shooting, nor — as he told his audience shortly after the incident – did he encourage it. But Beck had been regularly denouncing the Tides Foundation, a low-profile, liberal San Francisco nonprofit, for months before the 45-year-old Williams set forth from his home in Tuolumne County in his mother’s pickup truck, with a supply of guns and a suit of body...

    George Soros Funding Anti-Israel Evangelical Group January 26, 2014 by Daniel Greenfield Demographics is the enemy of the left. And the left fights it with aggressive immigration and aggressive reeducation. When they are faced with traditionalist religious movements that create their own educational systems or student groups, they resort to infiltrating them. And so Evangelical Christians are targeted with entities like Telos and Orthodox Groups with entities like Avi Weiss’ Yeshivat Chovevei Torah. The endgame is leftist steering and infiltration. George Soros, that old collaborator who stated that he never had as much fun as in his Nazi days, has...

    The other day I saw “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” which I thoroughly enjoyed. In it, the wizard Gandalf laments the growth of the “Power of the Shadow” and how the forces of good had been blind to its resurgence. That same week, Organizing for Action (President Obama’s political army) tweeted “On one side: Shadowy groups spending millions to obscure the facts.” I realized there was a connection between the two. OFA is right, the power of shadowy groups grows, and dark money spreads across our body politic. Yet many have been blind to the destructive power these groups...
  • 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...

    Financial Post [Canada] ^ | December 2, 2013 | Vivian Krause
    For more than a decade, there has been a complex international effort to stymie the oil industry in Canada. It’s called the Tar Sands Campaign and the main sources of funding for this campaign are the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, the William & Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Oak Foundation, the Sea Change Foundation, the Tides Foundation and other charitable foundations, most of which are based in California. By my calculations, these foundations have provided at least $75-million for campaigns and land use planning initiatives that thwart the development and export of Canadian oil. Until now, little information has been available about...

    This new video shows exactly how the Moon will look to us on Earth during the entire year of 2013. While the Moon always keeps the same face to us, it’s not exactly the same face. Because of the tilt in its axis and shape of its orbit, we see the Moon from slightly different angles over the course of a month, and the year. Normally, we don’t see how the Moon “wobbles” in its orbit or as it moves closer and farther away from Earth. But seeing the entire year compressed down to 5 minutes, we can see the...

    Although a collision with a vast tower of ice ultimately brought the passenger liner to its sticky end, it was a freak lunar event three months earlier that put the obstacle in its path, a new study claims. An incredibly rare combination of astronomical factors including the closest approach of the moon to Earth in 1,400 years caused an unusually high tide in January 1912, researchers found. This once-in-a-lifetime swell would have swept a vast field of icebergs from their normal resting place off the coast of Canada and caused them to drift further south. It would have taken them...

    Whenever Barack Obama makes a key decision, it always seems to benefit special supporters. 80% of the money Obama threw away on "green energy" programs went to his big donors. It's become painfully evident that crony capitalism has its fingerprints all over other Barack Obama decisions. Last year Barack Obama softened up Warren Buffett by awarding Buffett the Medal of Freedom, which Obama felt was appropriate for Buffett having accumulated more than $40 billion in personal wealth. In return, Buffett has become a cheerleader for Obama, voicing his support of Obama's Buffett rule. WASHINGTON — President Obama on Monday will...

On the surface, the event seems like a grass-roots gathering of liberal protesters from across the United States. On the US Day of Rage web site, organizers list partners such as "European Revolution" and "Take the Square" which don't seem to have billionaire backers behind them. If you do a little digging, you will find that the Tides Foundation is an indirect supporter of this event.

Sanders, who was a philanthropic adviser for the foundation, pleaded guilty March 25 before U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer in San Francisco to a count of theft within the special maritime and territorial jurisdiction of the United States, because the charity is in the Presidio.

    If you believe the White House, there are 30 million Americans who support a government health care takeover. But if you look at the funding behind the Obamacare campaign, it's the same few leftist billionaires, union bosses and partisan community organizers pushing the socialized medicine agenda. Let's connect the dots. On Thursday, a national "grassroots" coalition called Health Care for America Now (HCAN) will march on Capitol Hill to demand universal health care. The ground troops won't have to march very far. HCAN, you see, is no heartland network. It is headquartered at 1825 K Street in Washington, D.C. --...

    This high tide is bound to wash away more than just your sand castle. A new study has found that bulges in Earth's crust — solid Earth tides — trigger about 1 percent of earthquakes. As Earth and the moon grind through their gravitational ballet, our planet gets tugged hard near the equator. The force is so strong that as the moon passes overhead each day, it pulls Earth's surface up 11.8 inches.

    Tuvalu struggles to hold back tide The King Tide hits the islands of Tuvalu By David Shukman Environment correspondent, BBC News, Tuvalu The fragile strips of green that make up the small islands of Tuvalu are incredibly beautiful but also incredibly vulnerable. The group of nine tiny islands in the South Pacific only just break the surface of the ocean - but for how much longer? During a King Tide, which is what the islanders call the highest tides of the year, waves rolling off the ocean can have a devastating effect. The islands' main road is submerged and nearby...

    Flood alert for the highest tides in 20 years By David Sapsted (Filed: 07/08/2006) Thousands of people living in coastal areas are being warned to prepare for mass evacuations next month because of floods. Similar conditions in 1953 led to a flood that claimed 300 lives With the highest tides in 20 years predicted during September and October, the Environment Agency is holding road shows to alert people in the most vulnerable, low-lying areas of East Anglia. Householders are being urged to register with the agency to receive direct flood warnings, and a new Precautionary Evacuation Notice (PEN) system, involving...

    Toxic Tides: Another reason to worry about hurricanes Sid Perkins When Hurricanes Charley, Frances, Ivan, and Jeanne struck Florida in the summer of 2004, they killed 116 people, left thousands homeless, and caused billions of dollars in damage. Now, scientists suggest that the storms may also have triggered an intense, widespread Gulf of Mexico algae bloom that afflicted the state's western coast throughout 2005. DANGER ZONE. The red-and-yellow patch of Gulf of Mexico water off Tampa Bay shows the origin of last year's huge red tide, which may have been fueled by nutrient-rich groundwater discharges boosted by 2004 hurricanes.

    Move over Teresa Heinz-Kerry, here comes Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin. Lansdowne Technologies Inc. (LTI), the Paul Martin corporation that somehow disappeared from Martin's public disclosure statements circa 1995, is in a business similar to the Heinz-Kerry charitable organization that links leftwing activists and UN radicals to specially designed Internet communications and virtual private networks. Between the woman who coveted being America's First Lady and the Prime Minister of the country next door, top advocates of One World Government are being expedited in droves onto the Information Highway. Through the Tides Foundation, back in the early 1990s Heinz-Kerry (Mrs. John...

    The Oddest Couple and Their Hidden Agendas Joan Swirsky Friday, Aug. 13, 2004 The average lifespan for American men is around 74 years, and around 80 for women. So you would think that people like John Kerry and his wife, who have both been on this earth for over 60 years, would have gotten their acts together enough to convey some sense of internal coherence, personae that have at least a smidgen of authenticity. I don’t get either coherence or authenticity from John Kerry or Teresa Heinz Kerry, whether they’re together or apart. What I do get is a hidden...

    John Kerry's Wife Do you find it strange that Kerry's wife is never with him? Do you find it strange that you never hear any thing about her? This may be why! You'll be hearing even more about Teresa Heinz Kerry, wife of Democratic front-runner. She has quite a track record, especially when it comes to the causes she donates to. One of her favorite charities is the Tides Foundation. What is that, you ask? This foundation sends hundreds of millions of dollars to groups that protested the invasion of Iraq; that demands open U.S. borders; and provides legal defense...
