Philanthropist, Heir, Dies at 101

Bloomberg, by Heather Burke & Mark Schoifet

David Rockefeller, the U.S. banker, philanthropist, presidential adviser and heir to one of history’s most fabled fortunes, has died. At 101, he was the world’s oldest billionaire. He died Monday at his home in Pocantico Hills, New York, according to an emailed statement from Fraser P. Seitel, a family spokesman. The cause was congestive heart failure. Rockefeller was the youngest and last-surviving grandson of Standard Oil founder John D. Rockefeller, the nation’s first billionaire. He was the only one of John D. Rockefeller Jr.’s five sons who spent his entire professional career in the corporate world, rising to chief executive

And don´t forget how much he contributed to the Bilderburger movement for a one world government. Whenever I saw him speak in an interview or whatever, he always made my skin crawl with his condescending, too-suave-by-half manner.

The world is now a better place. This was a meglomaniac, always trying to control events behind the scenes with CFR, Builderbergers, and other One World groups and ideas.

Environmentalists triumph as Senate upholds drilling rule
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 5/10/2017 11:37:49     Post Reply
WASHINGTON— Environmentalists notched a rare win in the Republican-led Senate on Wednesday as a GOP effort to reverse an Obama-era rule restricting harmful methane emissions unexpectedly failed. The 51-49 vote against the repeal measure was a blow to the fossil-fuel industry and groups linked to the conservative Koch Brothers, which had waged a public campaign to overturn the Interior Department rule. The rule, finalized in November, would force energy companies to capture methane that’s burned off or “flared” at drilling sites because it earns less money than oil. An estimated $330 million a year in methane — the component of

After telling Vanity Fair last November that he wouldn’t “rule out” a presidential run, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is getting a bit more serious about the idea. In an extended interview with GQ writer Caity Weaver, America’s highest-paid actor said that running was a “real possibility.” Ultimately, he sees it as a great opportunity to help people. He’s a proud American too, so passionate about the troops that he hosted a large holiday event last Christmas to honor them. Furthermore, he shared some great thoughts on ideological diversity. “[Disagreement] informs us,” he told Weaver. “The responsibility as president—I [would] take

Hillary’s Campaign Chairman Attacked

Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta was, like many on the political left, angry with former FBI Director James Comey Tuesday morning. But his tone changed significantly only hours later when President Donald Trump fired Comey. Just last week, Hillary Clinton partially blamed Comey for her loss in the 2016 election, so it’s not surprising her campaign chairman would also harbor bad blood. Tuesday morning, while sharing a story on the then-FBI director’s testimony the day before, Podesta commented, “The American public is getting mildly nauseous listening to Jim Comey.” (Tweet) Hours later, however, once the news of Comey’s firing

Aetna Inc. will leave the few remaining states where it had been selling Obamacare plans next year, making it the latest health insurer to pull out of the health law as Republicans attack the program as failing and work to dismantle it. While the move is likely to attract outsize political attention, the decision affects just Delaware and Nebraska. The Hartford, Connecticut-based insurer already said last year it would pull out of 11 states, and in the last month announced plans to exit Iowa and Virginia. “At this time have completely exited the exchanges,” Aetna said in a statement Wednesday.

MSNBC host Peter Alexander asked Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) on Wednesday if she supported President Donald Trump´s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey given her previous assertion that Comey had "no credibility." The question triggered an animated response from Waters, who castigated the president´s decision as an effort to disrupt the FBI´s investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. Waters said she did not necessarily support Comey´s firing, but was troubled by Trump dismissing him in the midst of an ongoing FBI probe into the president´s links to Russia.

An increase in the New York City minimum wage is forcing some restauranteurs to either close up shop or raise their prices. According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, New York City restaurants are suffering as a result of a two dollar increase in the minimum wage that took place at the end of 2016. “It’s going up too fast,” said Jeremy Merrin, the owner of a chain of Cuban restaurants. Merrin said minimum wage increases forced him to close two of his New York City locations and raise prices at his others. “We can’t catch our breath,”

President Trump hasn´t given any interviews or held any public events in almost a week. But he is scheduled to sit down with NBC´s Lester Holt on Thursday afternoon. With Trump´s firing of FBI director James Comey sending shock waves across Washington, NBC has lucked into the most consequential interview of Trump´s presidency. When the interview booking was announced on Monday, Holt and his colleagues had no idea that Comey´s ouster was imminent. The main news peg for the interview was thought to be last week´s health care vote in the House. But now, with Comey´s firing garnering wall-to-wall coverage, the

President Trump’s sudden firing of FBI Director James B. Comey is bad for the country and will not be the end of the Trump-Russia affair, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) told a group of foreign diplomats and experts Tuesday night. Although McCain did not directly accuse the White House of firing Comey to thwart the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign’s possible Russia ties, he did say that if that was the intention, it would fail. “This scandal is going to go on. I’ve seen it before,” McCain told a meeting of the Munich Security Conference core group. “This is a

In what may have been a mild upset victory, Omaha’s Republican mayor Jean Stothert defeated Bernie Sanders–backed Democrat, Heath Mello. The margin was 53-46. Dave Begley, our man in Omaha (and Council Bluffs), wrote about the Omaha mayor’s race here. He called it “a national proxy political war” and noted that Hillary Clinton won more Omaha votes than Donald Trump. Moreover, registered Democrats outnumber registered Republicans by 16,000 in Omaha. Thus, Mello’s defeat is a blow to “the resistance.” His campaign theme — “Come together. Fight back” — failed to carry the day. Paul Crookston at NRO points out that Mello

In the name of progress, Harvard University will segregate graduation ceremonies based on race. For real. "Aside from studying and taking grueling tests, if you’re a minority, the outer pressures of society make the already challenging coursework even more difficult. Knowing this, Black members of the class of 2017 decided to form an individual ceremony. It’s the first of its kind at the school in recent memory and took nearly a year to plan," reports BET. "The separate graduation is an effort to highlight the aforementioned struggles and resilience it takes to get through those."

Former President Barack Obama warned the world that more people on the planet were eating meat, causing a dramatic rise in climate emissions. “As people want to increase meat consumption, that in turn is spiking the growth of greenhouse emissions coming out of the agricultural sector,” Obama said, pointing to countries that were consuming more meat. The former president shared his views about the growing threat during a conversation about food with his former chef Sam Kass at a food innovation summit in Milan. “People aren’t as familiar with the impact of cows and methane,” Obama said, adding that “as

Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.) said Wednesday he does not think mismanagement of the Hillary Clinton email scandal was "sufficient rationale" for President Trump to fire FBI Director James Comey. Trump fired Comey on Tuesday following a recommendation earlier in the day from Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who told the president that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein recommended the dismissal. Rosenstein wrote in a letter that he "cannot defend the director´s handling of the conclusion of the investigation of Secretary Clinton´s emails." CNN reporter Manu Raju caught up with McCain the day after the bombshell development and asked the senator

BARACK Obama will reportedly pocket a staggering £2.5million (€3million) today for delivering a speech to a sold-out audience in Milan as part of his lucrative post-presidential speaking tour. The former President, who has already earned hundreds of thousands of dollars for private speeches since leaving the White House, will make his highest-paying appearance yet at the Global Food Innovation Summit today. President Obama flew into Italy’s business capital yesterday, and according to local media headed straight for the extravagant Park Hyatt hotel, which can cost up to £7,100 (€8,400) a night.

Of the more than 1,200 people who have had direct access to the president as of Monday night, the majority — about 80 percent — are white. And almost 63 percent are white men.

President Trump announced ten federal judicial nominees today. All of them will sail through the Senate. All of them will fill seats stolen from President Obama. There are over 120 vacancies in the federal judiciary, and Obama had nominated people to fill 81 of them. But by the end of his two terms, 59 of those nominees were still in limbo, because Mitch McConnell’s Senate confirmed only 22. This week, ten new nominees were announced to take their seats—as promised, mostly conservative firebrands picked by the Heritage Foundation and Federalist Society—with many more sure to come.

Not since Watergate has a president dismissed the person leading an investigation bearing on him, and Mr. Trump’s decision late Tuesday afternoon drew instant comparisons to the Saturday Night Massacre when President Richard M. Nixon ordered the firing of Archibald Cox, the special prosecutor looking into the so-called third-rate burglary that would eventually bring Nixon down.

Comey was "caught flat-footed," when he looked up and saw on TV that he was fired, according to the Los Angeles Times. Comey was speaking to FBI agents at a recruiting event and was set to give a speech shortly after. When he saw the news report on TV, he allegedly laughed and said he thought it was a fairly funny prank. He was then ushered into
