Soros-Funded Study Ranks
Soros Last in Transparency

Washington Free Beacon, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 5/8/2014 2:58:14 AM

Liberal billionaire George Soros’ foundation is among the most opaque think tanks in the country, according to a study funded by that foundation. The study, by a group called Transparify, ranked 35 U.S. think tanks based on the amount of financial information that they make publicly available. Soros’ Open Society Foundations rank dead last, earning zero stars out of a possible five. That designation is reserved for groups that dislose “no relevant or up-to-date information” on their finances. The study notes that Transparify “is funded by the Think Tank Fund of the Open Society Foundations (OSF). As OSF is listed by the ranking

Article also says Podesta´s minions at CAP are intransparent. By contrast, the Heritage Foundation is completely transparent. Not my word, the word of the Soros group that did the study.

As for the beached-whale photo, open with caution.

EL PASO, Texas - A mannequin dangling from a billboard off Interstate 10 has many people asking why it was placed there. El Paso police are investigating the act of vandalism. The mannequin was hanging from a rope around its neck that was attached to a billboard for public display Thursday morning. The billboard is in the 9400 block of Gateway East Boulevard. The billboard it was attached to also had a message in Spanish that read: "Plata-O-Plomo," translated literally means "silver or lead." But the meaning is much deeper “pay or die.” Many motorists traveling along Interstate 10 west

WASHINGTON – Some 20 million bees were released after a tractor-trailer transporting them overturned on a highway ramp near Newark, New Jersey, and traffic authorities on Wednesday recommended that motorists not stop and roll their windows up along the stretch of road where the insects are still swarming. The accident occurred about 6 p.m. Tuesday night on the ramp from northbound Delaware Route 896 to Interstate 95 North when the truck carrying more than 450 beehives from Florida to Maine overturned. Delaware police spokesman Sgt. Paul Shavack told the daily Delawareonline that the driver, Adolpho Guerra, was stung

The centre right has extended its lead over the centre left in the race for dominance in the European Parliament elections this week, a poll showed, but both sides are expected to fiercely contest the presidency of the European Commission. The European People´s Party (EPP) will take 217 seats in the May 22-25 vote, a five-seat improvement on a week ago, according to an analysis of national surveys by PollWatch 2014, its final forecast before polls open. Meanwhile, the centre-left Socialists and Democrats (S&D) have lost ground over the past week. That puts the EPP 16 seats ahead of the centre

Elections: India´s voters dealt a crushing blow to socialism Friday with the "Modislide" victory of the pro-free market BJP party and its top governor, who has already brought prosperity to his Gujarat state. It´s great news. Markets in India reacted to the country´s election Friday with a "blistering rally," as Reuters put it, pricing in a buy-high, sell-higher future for the giant BRIC economy after the blowout victory for the openly pro-free market Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in India´s Lok Sabha, or lower house, of parliament, which will choose the prime minister.

Meet Happy, McDonald´s terrifying new mascot. Happy is the new ambassador of the restaurant´s new healthy Happy Meals. Maybe McDonald´s is trying to scare children into eating their vegetables. Happy is the "ambassador for balanced and wholesome eating." He is encouraging kids to eat the healthy Happy Meal options: fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy and water or juice. He is especially welcoming of the new Low Fat Strawberry Go-Gurt. Because nothing says "finish your carrot sticks" like a psychotic stare from the side of a box. While he seems pretty alienating, Happy has actually done decently well as an animated mascot in other




Swiss Voters Defeat $24.65
Minimum Wage by a Wide Margin
New York Times, by Melissa Eddy    Original Article
Posted By: PageTurner- 5/19/2014 2:58:37 PM     Post Reply
BERLIN — Swiss voters resoundingly rejected on Sunday a proposed minimum wage that would have been the world’s highest, a move widely seen as reflecting an aversion to state intervention in the liberal economic policies that are the bedrock of Switzerland’s prosperity. Trade unions had sought a minimum hourly wage of 22 Swiss francs, or $24.65, in what they said was an effort to ensure fair salaries for workers in the lowest-paid sectors, such as retailing and personal services. Switzerland has no national minimum wage. The proposed rate — considerably higher than elsewhere in Europe and more than double the $10.10 President

Business Climate: Los Angeles is buzzing over the possible exit of Sriracha sauce maker Huy Fong to friendlier territory in Texas. But why shouldn´t it go? L.A. is so unfriendly it makes Detroit look good, according to two studies. In a region that has made itself a foreign and venture capital investment desert, it´s rather astonishing to see politicians from the industrial Los Angeles suburb of Irwindale do all they can to chase the largest and rarest investor in their town out. But that´s what they´ve done, hauling the Huy Fong company into court and winning an injunction from the Los Angeles

Bolivian President Evo Morales revealed on Thursday that, with Argentina´s help, his country was working to develop nuclear power. Morales had previously indicated that his country had plans to go nuclear with help from both Buenos Aires and France, but this is the first time that the news was confirmed. “We are working on nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, for medical purposes,” Morales said at the opening of a gas and energy seminar in Santa Cruz. “We salute the Argentine people as we have begun to work on nuclear energy”.

If attacked in Brazil: “Don´t fight, scream or argue”. That´s the advice being offered to tourists by São Paulo Civil Police ahead of this year´s World Cup games which authorities have revealed will be enforced by armored, “RoboCop”-styled riot police. The alarming safety precautions come as 3.6 million tourists are expected to flood the country, which has been labeled “critical” for crime by the US Department of State for the last 25 years. The advice to tourists on if attacked, first reported by Sao Paulo news site Estadao may sound contradictory of how a victim may react elsewhere, but in

Reverse Revolution: Angry
Thai Elites Target Democracy

Thailand continues its slow motion political implosion. The prime minister has been ousted and a new election has been scheduled for July 20, but the latter will settle nothing unless traditional ruling elites are willing to accept a government run by their opponents. If not, the country risks a violent explosion. Bangkok´s politics long leaned authoritarian. However, in 2001 telecommunications executive Thaksin Shinawatra campaigned as a populist, winning the votes of Thailand´s neglected rural poor to become prime minister. He was re-elected in 2005. Instead of figuring out how to better appeal to the popular majority, his opponents organized the so-called People´s



Italy´s Alitalia scraps Venezuela
flights over currency dispute: sources

CARACAS - Italian airline Alitalia has canceled service to Venezuela as of June 2 due to delays in repatriating revenue under the country´s 11-year-old currency control system, two sources told Reuters on Wednesday. Venezuela owes airlines some $4 billion, according to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), because the airlines are required to sell tickets in the local bolivar currency but the government has not granted them approval to repatriate that revenue. "The last flight arrives on June 1, the plane will go back (to Italy) and will not return," said a local company employee, who asked not to be identified, adding

Shoppers in Venezuela know that shortages of staples like cornmeal, milk and chicken are a harsh reality of life, but now -- amid violent protests and strikes -- shortages have spread to that most basic of basics: bread. Lines are forming, and fights have broken out outside bakeries as politicians and business leaders point fingers. In recent days, people have had to wait in line for hours under the scorching sun. Ricardo Rodriguez, a Caracas resident waiting for the chance to buy bread, described the queues as "extraordinary." "It´s like embarking on an odyssey," he said. The problem stems from

President Obama is taking a swipe at the Founding Fathers, blaming his inability to move his agenda on the “disadvantage” of having each state represented equally in the Senate. At a Democratic fundraiser in Chicago Thursday night, Mr. Obama told a small group of wealthy supporters that there are several hurdles to keeping Democrats in control of the Senate and recapturing the House. One of those problems, he said, is the apportionment of two Senate seats to each state regardless of population. “Obviously, the nature of the Senate means that California has the same number of Senate seats as Wyoming.

Fox News anchor Gregg Jarrett was fueled by a potent cocktail of prescription drugs and vodka when he was arrested at a Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport bar on Wednesday. Admitting to police that he had started drinking at 9am that morning, the troubled 59-year-old journalist was taken into custody at 12.39pm at the Northern Lights Grill in the airport´s main terminal. Once in jail, Jarrett, who was carrying papers indicating that he had just been released from rehab, launched into a furious and confrontational tirade at police, repeatedly screaming, ´f*** you´, before officers physically subdued him.

Phil Robertson included remarks in a sermon in his church West Monroe, Louisiana that harken back to the "Duck Dynasty" star´s past anti-gay remarks. Robertson included homosexuals with other groups, including thieves, drunks and adulterers, as hell-bound sinners in a sermon he gave on Easter that was recorded and put up on the church´s website. “Neither the sexually immoral, nor the idolators, nor adulterers, nor male prostitutes, nor homosexual offenders, nor thieves, nor greedy, nor drunkards, nor slanderers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God,” Robertson said, paraphrasing a verse from Corinthians in the

Why do some political scandals stick while others fade? The level of media obsession seems to rise and fall as mysteriously as the stock market. On Benghazi, sell. Hold on the IRS audits. On the Department of Veterans Affairs scandal, buy, buy, buy. In the broader scandal market, fraud or criminality helps. Political intrigue is a plus. Sexual content increases attention but may eventually seem pathetically human and excusable. Conservatives are convinced that the liberal media are harder on Republicans. There is a natural human tendency to attribute good motives to people with whom you agree — and corrupt motives

A federal just has put U.S. Rep. John Conyers, the second most senior Democrat in the House of Representatives, back on a Michigan congressional primary ballot, after he was struck off because most of the petition signatures he presented were ruled invalid. Conyers had lost an initial appeal Friday morning when Michigan election officials found problems with more than half of the Democrat´s nominating petitions. [Snip] But just hours later, Detroit federal Judge Matthew Leitman issued an injunction ordering election officials to put Conyers´ name on the ballot while larger constitutional issues are sorted out.

Speaking at the American Enterprise Institute, Mr. McConnell said Mr. Reid, Nevada Democrat, has done “tremendous damage” to the comity of the Senate that is essential to the chamber’s operations. “He has turned the Senate into a graveyard of good ideas,” the Kentucky Republican, accusing Mr. Reid of blocking amendments from both parties and circumventing the normal committee process. “He has muzzled the people’s representatives and, through them,

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., repeatedly put the blame for the Veterans Affairs scandal on former President George W. Bush, while arguing that her party has worked hard for veterans in recent years. Pelosi took a shot at Bush while saying that the scandal is a high priority for Obama. "He sees the ramifications of some seeds that were sown a long time ago, when you have two wars over a long period of time and many, many more, millions more veterans," she told reporters during her Thursday press briefing. "And so, I know that he is upset about it."

An elderly Pakistani immigrant beat his wife to death with a stick after the doomed woman made the mistake of cooking him lentils for dinner instead of the hearty meal of goat meat that he craved, according to court papers. Noor Hussein, 75, was so outraged over the prospect of eating the vegetarian fare that he pummeled his wife, Nazar Hussein, 66, inside their Brooklyn apartment until she was a “bloody mess,” prosecutors said in opening statements of his murder trial Wednesday. “Defendant asked [his wife] to cook goat and [his wife] said she made something else,” court papers said.

As we at NewsBusters have documented, the liberal media have shown no lack of interest in the candidacy of American Idol runner-up turned Democratic politician Clay Aiken. So it should be interesting to see the coverage, or lack thereof, for Mr. Aiken having tweeted a while back, "Anyone else watching @piersmorgan want to punch Ann Coulter in the face?" What´s more, reports blogger Sooper Mexican, Aiken once all but urged fans to call Coulter a c**t. War on women, anyone?
