There Is No Connection Between
Phil Mickelson And Carl Icahn

Forbes, by Nathan Vardi

Original Article

Posted By:SoCalGal, 6/12/2014 10:21:57 AM

When news first broke about the existence of a federal insider-trading probe into billionaire Carl Icahn, golfer Phil Mickelson and sports gambler William Walters, Icahn was quick to point out that he and Mickelson didn’t know each other. Now, it appears that there really isn’t any connection between Icahn and Mickelson. The New York Times reported on Wednesday night that Mickelson did not trade shares of Clorox CLX -0.85% in 2011. Initial reports about the insider-trading probe said that federal investigators were examining trading of Clorox by Mickelson and Walters around the time that Icahn was launching a takeover effort

Comments:
We are fans and admirers of Phil Mickelson - as a golfer and as a person. He has handled this well, although it must have been troubling. I hope that this information is as widely publicized as the original damaging speculation.

I thought all journalists did fact-checking before writing and publishing their screeds. This is reprehensible but a retraction, if ever made, will be on page D-55 just below the room to rent. Today reporting is just rumor and speculation. Phil has done nothing to deserve this kind of smear.

Will the lumpen press establishment now clear Phil´s name with the eagerness with which they besmirched it? It turns out that Phil never owned any stock in Clorox. Now that the false charges are off him, he is playing well in the first round of the U.S. Open, and is 1-under-par playing the fourth hole--his thirteenth of the day. If he manages to complete his career Grand Slam on Father´s Day, my living room ceiling will not be able to contain me.

He may not be guilty of insideer trading, but he still prostitutes himself for the Pharma industry. Guy has millions but still wants more so he entices others to get on prescription drugs to make even more money.

People like this have no soul.

If not for the anti-inflammatory drug (Enbrel) he takes for his psoriatic arthritis, Phil´s magnificent career would be over. If not treated immediately, this condition can turn one into an invalid. So it´s certain that he credits this medicine (and his doctors) with saving his career. Endorsing it would seem only natural. If there´s any shortage of soul in evidence here, it´s in the rude reply above.

A British actor who appeared in the Harry Potter film series has been found dead in a remote part of California´s Death Valley, authorities say. Mixed martial arts fighter Dave Legeno, 50, was found by hikers on Sunday and his body was recovered by helicopter. There were no signs of foul play and it is believed he died from the heat, an initial coroner´s examination found. He appeared as werewolf Fenrir Greyback in three Harry Potter movies, including both Deathly Hallows films. "It appears that Legeno died of heat-related issues, but the Inyo County coroner will determine the final cause of death," the Inyo

Florida’s political landscape

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida’s political landscape is being upended by a landmark legal ruling that one legal expert says could influence the way other states draw their congressional districts. A circuit judge ruled late Thursday that the state Legislature illegally drew Florida’s congressional districts to primarily benefit the Republican Party. Judge Terry Lewis ruled that two of the state’s 27 congressional districts were invalid and that the map must be redrawn. Justin Levitt, a law professor at Loyola Law School who tracks redistricting cases, called the decision a “big victory” for Florida’s voters that could be a model for other states to

The murder suspect who police describe as a high-end prostitute wrote a post on Facebook about killing sprees in the days before her arrest. Alix Tichelman wrote on June 28 that it was "really nice to talk with someone about killing sprees and murdering people in cold blood...and they love it too." "No judgement. Yay!” she wrote. “F*** all of that positivity bulls***. Take a look around you. Life is hard and then you die." (Snip)According to her Facebook page, which has since been removed, Tichelman, 26, is from Atlanta and was planning to make a road trip home sometime in July.

More than seven months after a Silicon Valley executive was found dead on his yacht of an apparent overdose, police said they have uncovered new video evidence that reveals he may have been murdered. Alix Tichelman, 26, who police describe as a high-end call girl, is believed to be the woman in the video injecting Forrest Hayes, 51, with heroin during a date together last November, according to Santa Cruz police. It was initially thought that Hayes, who had worked at Apple and was employed by Google at the time of his death, died of an overdose on his yacht, "The Escape."The

The irony of this statement by Tom Perez is not lost on us. You see, Tom Perez used to be the head of the Community Relations Service (CRS) within the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice.We have stated for several years the CRS is filled with intensely angry leadership who advocate for aggressive, often violent, racial confrontations. To see the former head of the DOJ Anger Army proclaiming his desire for violence against Republicans is, well, just typical.

President Barack Obama is holding off for now on seeking new legal authority to send unaccompanied migrant kids back home faster from the Southern border, following criticism that the administration´s planned changes were too harsh. Instead when Obama formally asks Congress for more than $2 billion in emergency spending Tuesday to deal with the border crisis, the request will not be accompanied by the policy changes that the White House had indicated it planned to seek, according to two congressional aides. The aides spoke Monday on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak about the matter by name

It´s probably safe to go back in the water. Despite a recent string of shark sightings off Manhattan Beach, including one that ended with a swimmer being hospitalized after he was bitten near the pier Saturday morning, reports of shark attacks are uncommon in the United States, records show. According to data tracked by the Florida Museum of Natural History, there were 39 reported shark attacks in California from 2001 to 2013, or 3.25 per year, and five of them resulted in fatalities. East Coast swimmers are much more likely to wind up the victims of a shark attack, according to the data.

An alleged spy has been arrested in Germany accused of passing the US information from a committee looking into NSA activities. It has heightened diplomatic tensions between the two countries following allegations in the Edward Snowden leaks that the US electronic spy agency tapped Angela Merkel’s phone along with wider surveillance of German citizens. The German government has not denied reports by Der Spiegel and the Sueddeutsche Zeitung that the suspected spy was a double agent and worked for Germany´s foreign intelligence service, the BND.

LONDON — Eugenie Bouchard is a rising phenom, bound and determined to be a champ, but her fortnight at Wimbledon turned into a harsh wannabe’s tutorial Saturday when Czech star Petra Kvitova shaped the ladies singles championship into her own 55-minute clinic in speed dating with destiny. Kvitova, a fitter, faster, and more focused version of the woman who won here in 2011, pulverized Bouchard, 6-3, 6-0, in a thorough and powerful game of yellow-ball keepaway. For the brief time she was out there, the seemingly stunned Bouchard, a 20-year-old Montrealer, found herself unable to buy a second’s respite or

MARIETTA, Georgia — A Georgia man who police say intentionally killed his toddler son by leaving the boy inside a hot SUV was exchanging nude photos with women the day his son died and had looked at websites that advocated against having children, a detective testified Thursday. Cobb County Police Detective Phil Stoddard testified at a hearing that evidence showed Justin Ross Harris was practically leading a double life and should not be granted bond. Stoddard described the evidence police have suggesting Harris, who is charged with murder, killed his 22-month-old son Cooper intentionally. Harris and his wife had two

A Fox News exclusive reported this morning by Jana Winter inexplicably buried the lede. Winter reports that several dead children have been discovered “washed up along the riverbank” of the Rio Grande, but fails to note that there have been no reports by the Obama administration on this. This indicates a pattern of covering up dead illegal alien kids by the Obama administration. It was two weeks before news was reported on the sole child death acknowledged by the Obama administration, Gilberto Ramos, a 15 year-old boy from Guatemala whose body was found in the Texas brush dead from the

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
