Jeffrey Katzenberg Plots Another
Fundraiser to Unseat Mitch McConnell

Hollywood Reporter, by Tina Daunt

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/27/2013 9:58:52 PM

DreamWorks Animation chief and Democratic super donor Jeffrey Katzenberg and his political strategist Andy Spahn are spending at least part of the holiday season working their bottomless Rolodexes to pull together another fundraiser aimed at defeating the Senate Republicans’ minority leader, Mitch McConnell. Katzenberg and his wife, Marilyn, will be prominent among the cohosts when Kentucky’s Democratic senatorial candidate, Alison Lundergan Grimes returns to Los Angeles for a Jan. 13 event at the home of CAA managing partner and head of television Steve Lafferty and his wife, Nikki, an animal protection activist.

My knee-jerk reaction is to agree with #1. At least I won´t be disappointed at the democrats´ vote on an issue which I´m against because I will expect him to do so.

Maybe the good folks in Kentucky will work hard to primary out McConnell with a worthy challenger. I don´t know much about the guy (Bevins, isn´t it), who´s challenging him now: He may do, I just don´t know.

So you have to look at the possibilities. You could end up with the Dem who is taking money by the millions from Dem fat cats. Or you could end up with McConnell who has salted away millions in his war chest. Or you could get one of the challengers who must go to the people and make their case for their support. The way I look at this, it is a very healthy process.

Typical liberal elite. He´s so well off that practically no government policy affects his life, his lifestyle, his family or most anyone he hangs with. E.G. Obamacare doesn´t touch him and is of zero consideration to his elite healthcare package. He has The Best, in every material aspect of his life.
But he has no compunctions about using his wealth to inflict all manner of fascist leviathan gooberment upon the rest of us, because he deems it, believes it will keep us all taken care of so he can enjoy his life in piece without rich guilt.
Typical liberal power elite.

Yeah, because the Ashley Judd thingy worked out so well. Don´t particularly want McConnell, but REALLY don´t want Lundgren here. And still have not forgotten how McConnell held the Republicans together against Obamacare. Still a big plus....unless they decide to help "fix" it.

I love stories like this. Not because of the McConnell part, but because I´m able to add to my list of things I can save money on: Anything DreamWorks. Doesn´t it make you crazy when you work extremely hard for your money, then for some relief from your daily life, you go see a nice movie, have some ´forbidden!´ theater popcorn, then realize that YOUR money went to THESE GUYS? And they turned gave it away to DEMOCRATS?!!! Aaarggh! Makes me crazy!

(Truth be told, though, DreamWorks was already on my list.)

President Obama has welcomed the World Series champion Red Sox to the White House, praising their triumph on the field last fall while hailing them as a symbol of their city´s determined response to the bombing at last year´s Boston Marathon. Obama said Tuesday he´s grateful for the role the team played in helping heal the city after the terror attack. He said sometimes sports seems trivial, but it can bring people together like almost nothing else. Red Sox slugger David Ortiz at one point took a selfie of himself and the president as a keepsake.

We recently published a forecast that described the GOP as more likely than not to win the U.S. Senate in November. But our analysis was less bullish on Republicans’ prospects of flipping the seat in Iowa currently held by Democratic Sen. Tom Harkin, who is retiring. There, Democrats appeared to have a strong candidate in Rep. Bruce Braley, who has cleared his primary field. Republicans, meanwhile, face a contentious primary with a number of candidates who have never won races for statewide or federal office. After we published our forecast, the Republican PAC America Rising released a video of Braley,

President Barack Obama is planning a Rose Garden appearance Tuesday as sign-ups under his health care law surpassed 7 million. A government official told The Associated Press that the 7 million mark had been crossed. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss developments by name before Obama´s announcement. The 7 million target was thought to be out of reach by most experts after computer glitches slowed sign-ups on deadline day Monday. A surge of consumer interest propelled sign-ups. Obama plans to speak at 4:15 p.m. The administration has not said how many of

XI’AN, China — It was a rare, almost intimate scene, between Michelle Obama and her mother, played out before the world. When a group of Chinese girls invited the first lady to skip rope at an event on the ancient city wall here, she kicked her heels off to slide on a pair of flats. Before an aide could swoop in and pick up her daughter’s shoes, Marian Robinson bent down to grab them. Then, the 76-year-old grandmother beamed as Obama jumped. Obama’s daughters, Sasha and Malia, stood nearby, shyly hanging back as their mother took center stage. Robinson clapped

SHIRLEY, N.Y. – A 17-year-old Long Island student has accomplished what few believe is possible. Kwasi Enin, of Shirley, has been accepted at all eight Ivy League schools to which he applied. The William Floyd High School senior began hearing from the schools March 27. He told Newsday he couldn´t believe it, "the yesses kept coming." Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Princeton, Yale and the University of Pennsylvania all said yes. Kwasi scored 2,250 out of 2,400 on the SAT. That places him in the 99th percentile for all students taking the exam.

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan is set to release a spending plan Tuesday that Republican leaders say would balance the budget in 10 years. As the Washington Examiner´s Susan Ferrechio reported March 21, the plan is likely to build off his fiscal 2012 and 2013 proposals, with the addition of new reforms to the nation´s growing social welfare programs. In a 204-page report issued in March, Ryan said the hundreds of federal programs for the poor included overlaps and waste and has "actually created a poverty trap."

(Video) The American Action Network took aim today at President Obama’s record of dishonest healthcare promises in a web-based ad “Keep Your Doctor.” The video comes in the wake of President Obama’s WebMD interview where he plainly admitted Americans wouldn’t be able to keep their doctor after saying for years that they could. Like his infamous “keep your plan” promise, Obama pledged multiple times that Americans would not be required to change their doctor under the Affordable Care Act. The video also notes that on April 7th the Obama Administration is scheduled to finalize deep Medicare Advantage cuts

(Video) As Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) continues his obsessive rant against the Koch brothers, a new ad reveals that Harry and the Democrats have a “Koch” problem of their own: The Steyer brothers. So who are the Steyers? David Steyer is an environmentalist and former hedge fund manager with an estimated net worth of $1.5 billion. While Steyer (along with brother Jim) has used his wealth to promote an anti-oil, anti-coal, and climate-change agenda, critics (including some on the left) say he made much of his fortune by investing in ventures that are environmentally destructive and socially irresponsible.

JERUSALEM — Officials involved in the fraught Israeli-Palestinian peace talks said on Tuesday that an agreement was near on extending the negotiations through 2015 in exchange for the release of Jonathan J. Pollard, an American serving a life sentence for spying for Israel. The agreement would also include the release of hundreds of Palestinian prisoners, including citizens of Israel, and a partial freeze on construction in West Bank settlements. Secretary of State John Kerry and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel hammered out details of the emerging deal in meetings here that began Monday night and continued early on Tuesday.

In order to appeal to everyday, average Americans, both political parties like to trot out the attack that the other side is the party of the rich (or super-rich, just to make it stick more). Well, the Associated Press looked at the financial stats for every congressional district and concluded that most of the wealthiest districts in America are represented by Democrats. The single richest congressional district in the country is New York’s 12th Congressional District, which is currently represented by Democrat Carolyn Maloney. Behind that is California’s 33rd, represented by Democrat Henry Waxman. And House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi‘s

Obamacare, the plan purportedly created to provide health coverage for the uninsured, has enrolled just 1.7% of America´s 48.6 million uninsured. News of the disastrous numbers comes as nervous Democrats and President Barack Obama, ahead of the November midterm elections, did their best on Monday´s enrollment deadline to put a positive spin on the deeply unpopular Obamacare program. (Snip) The White House now claims an Obamacare enrollment figure of six million people. However, according to The New York Times, at least 20% of those never paid their premiums to activate coverage, leaving them uninsured.

The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras.

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in

WASHINGTON — LeBron James wants you to sign up for health coverage under Obamacare. So do Magic Johnson and Jonah Hill’s mom. Monday is (sort of) the deadline for Americans without employer-provided health coverage to sign up for insurance under the Affordable Care Act — the White House extended it so that anyone who’s begun to sign up by Monday can still complete the process by April 7 — and the final enrollment numbers will be an important test for a law intended to expand access for the uninsured. It’ll also be a test for the White House’s high-octane sales
