Rupert Murdoch: The media mogul says
goodbye to much of the company he built

Washington Post, by Sarah Ellison

Original Article

Posted By:abuela10, 7/2/2018 12:40:27 PM

It all started with a few glasses of wine and two media titans talking about how hard life is. Rupert Murdoch, the 87-year-old founder and co-executive chairman of 21st Century Fox and News Corp., and Bob Iger, the 67-year-old chief executive of the Walt Disney Co., met last August at Murdoch’s Moraga vineyard in the Bel Air hills of Los Angeles and discussed the myriad challenges their multibillion-dollar corporations faced, according to two people familiar with the discussion. Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Google were dwarfing their old-media conglomerates. As much as Murdoch liked positioning himself as the underdog and outsider,

"With Rupert there is a constant, restless mulling and introspection," said Robert Thomson, CEO of News Corp., the Murdoch-controlled company that consists largely of newspapers and real estate websites, including the Wall Street Journal, the Times of London and the New York Post. "That endless reflection means that he has an understanding of the context of the moment."

Mr. Thompson, he´s always looking over his shoulder because he has been spying on everyone for the last thirty plus years.

He´s also the driving force behind Fusion GPS and the dossier they crafted--leveraging his prized asset, the WSJ, to oust a sitting president. He´s not friends with Trump, he´s friends with Alwaleed...!

Jeffrey Toobin’s Clueless Supreme Court
Meltdowns Should Embarrass CNN
The Federalist, by Warren Henry    Original Article
Posted By: abuela10- 7/12/2018 7:01:18     Post Reply
Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement has ignited a competition in Big Media for apocalyptic hot-takes on how a marginally more conservative Supreme Court will destroy America. CNN’s senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin seems bent on taking home the trophy for the most molten meltdown. Toobin’s most recent rave, to the network’s Anderson Cooper, was that the stakes are higher on judicial confirmations today because “[w]hen the Constitution was written in the late eighteenth century, people were expected to die in their 50s. The framers never contemplated that these terms would regularly go to 30-plus years as they do now.”Toobin is

Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for adult film star Stormy Daniels, vowed to fight the “bogus charges” his client faces after she was apparently arrested early Thursday while performing at an Ohio strip club, in what he blasted as a “setup” that was “politically motivated.” Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was arrested for “allegedly allowing a customer to touch her while on stage in a non-sexual manner,” Avenatti tweeted, with the hashtags “setup” and “basta,” which is Italian for enough.

Liberals claim to despise Trump voters for all sorts of reasons, but Nancy Sinatra, daughter of the late great Frank Sinatra, made it clear on social media that she specifically hates Trump voters – and “especially the women” – for wanting to overturn Roe v. Wade. Hours before President Donald Trump announced his Supreme Court pick, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) tweeted out a dire warning that all of Trump’s potential nominees “want to take away a woman’s constitutional right to make her own health care decisions.” “We cannot go back to the days before Roe v. Wade,” she added.

Scott Pruitt becomes latest Trump official

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt became the most recent Trump administration figure to get an earful while trying to get a mouthful at a DC restaurant, according to a Facebook posting Monday. Teacher Kristin Mink was shown approaching Pruitt as he chowed down with a pal at the Teaism restaurant Monday, four blocks from his office at the EPA’s headquarters. “I just wanted to urge you to resign, because of what you’re doing to the environment in our country,” Mink said, holding her two-year-old son and a notepad, as her husband recorded the encounter. Speaking to The Post, the 33-year-old mom from

‘I’d like to kill ‘em’: GOP
takes on Trump tariffs
Politico, by BURGESS EVERETT    Original Article
Posted By: abuela10- 7/3/2018 7:07:24     Post Reply
Republican senators are at their breaking point with Donald Trump’s protectionist trade blitz. Not a party meeting goes by these days where multiple Republicans don’t vent that the president isn’t listening to them — and plot how to fight back. “I’d like to kill ’em,” groused Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), a close Trump ally, referring to the administration’s expanding list of tariffs. The mounting frustration with the Republican president is a warning sign for the party amid what’s been a surprisingly favorable stretch. Trump appears, at least for now, to have weathered the internal GOP backlash against his family separation policy.

DOJ employee who chased Secretary Kirstjen

Federal Hatch Act investigators have opened a complaint file on the Justice Department employee who was part of a mob that chased Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen from a restaurant earlier last month. The U.S. Office of Special Counsel, which polices employees who illegally engage in politicking as government employees, has assigned a case number and a lawyer to the complaint against Allison Hrabar. Ms. Hrabar, a paralegal at the Justice Department, was part of a group from the Democratic Socialists of America that showed up at a Mexican restaurant to disrupt Ms. Nielsen’s meal. Their protest was filmed and posted online. Ms.

America really did have a Manchurian

After returning from a tour of some of the war zones in the Middle East — which ended with the Free Iran Gathering 2018 in Paris — I am struck by the realization that America really did have a Manchurian Candidate in The White House for eight years. If you look at the evidence, there really is no other conclusion. The calamitous consequences of the Obama presidency will be felt for the foreseeable future. In the short year and a half that President Trump has been in office, he has put in place policy that has mitigated the damage that President

An ordinary morning in New York City last week for President Trump’s son Eric Trump abruptly turned frantic when he rushed to the aid of a woman who passed out near a train station, dodging rush-hour traffic to chase down a passing ambulance. According to an eyewitness account provided to Secrets, Trump and his security detail stopped to tend to the unidentified woman outside of the F train stop near 57th Street and 6th Avenue on Wednesday morning. Our tipster, who requested anonymity, said Trump then spotted a passing ambulance and rushed to stop it. “I watched as Eric looked up, spotted an

Ex co-worker no fan of Democrat

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is being hailed as the new face of the Democratic Party after vanquishing Queens party boss Joe Crowley in Tuesday’s primary, but one former co-worker isn’t jumping on her bandwagon. Most of the staff at Flats Fix, the East 16th Street taco and tequila bar, say nice things about Sandy, as they knew her for the four years she worked there, until she quit six months ago to run for Congress. But one waitress has a bad memory of working with Ocasio-Cortez, 28, as Ocasio-Cortez tended bar during the very busy Cinco de Mayo celebration in 2017.

A man who pledged allegiance to Al Qaeda sought to kill members of the military and conducted reconnaissance in downtown Cleveland for a planned attack on July 4 -- but the Independence Day plot was foiled after a months-long investigation, federal officials said Monday. FBI Special Agent in Charge Stephen Anthony said Demetrius Pitts, also known as Abdur Raheem Rahfeeq, was arrested at 10 a.m. Sunday by the joint terrorism task force. Authorities were initially notified about Pitts in 2017, when he lived in Cincinnati and allegedly made statements supporting Al Qaeda and advocating violence against U.S. military members. "This

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh allegedly mouthed the word “b*tch” at an image of Hillary Clinton during former President Bill Clinton’s 1997 State of the Union address. “I saw one of Ken Starr’s deputies, Brett Kavanaugh, who was sitting across from me, mouth the word b*tch when the camera panned to Hillary,” Media Matters founder David Brock wrote in his 2002 book Blinded by the Right. The excerpt from the book was tweeted by Robert Costa, a far-left reporter at the anti-Trump Washington Post.

The Pew Research Center asked Americans who they thought did the best job as president in their lifetime. The top pick: former President Barack Obama. Obama was the choice of 44 percent of the respondents in the poll, which was published Wednesday. Bill Clinton came in second with 33 percent and Ronald Reagan was third with 32 percent. Although not yet even halfway through his first term, President Donald Trump got 19 percent to place him in fourth place, ahead of both Bushes, John F. Kennedy and Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has reportedly incurred a mountain of debt partly due to buying season tickets for the Washington Nationals. Kavanaugh reported having between $60,000 and $200,000 in debt on three credit cards and a personal loan in 2016, according to The Washington Post. The Nationals tickets were purchased for himself and friends over the past decade. White House spokesman Raj Shah told the paper that Kavanaugh has since paid off some of the debt while his friends paid him back for the tickets. Kavanaugh, who has not worked in the more lucrative private sector, showed assets between

Walking around New Orleans´ Lower Ninth Ward neighborhood, people are still angry at the impact of Hurricane Katrina and how unprepared the city was for the massive storm nearly 13 years on. But now some of their wrath is directed at Brad Pitt and his charity Make It Right. After the levees of the city´s industrial canal were breached, the Lower Ninth Ward of predominantly black and low-income families was decimated by the floods, with most houses swept away or left in ruins. Among the first to lend a helping hand was Pitt, who - along with his then wife Angelina Jolie - owned a house in New Orleans and set up the

Hours before President Trump was to name his second Supreme Court Justice nominee, Sen. Chuck Schumer was whining on the Senate floor. The Senate Minority Leader had his feelings hurt because Trump had not consulted him – or any Democrats – in his Supreme Court pick. (Video) “In the old days, the president would consult with Republicans and Democrats in the Senate on a qualified judge and then after careful deliberation, nominate a jurist that could get bipartisan support,” the New York Democrat said. “What we have here is the exact opposite,” he added. “The president has gone to two

Stockton, California will become the first city in the country to participate in a test of Universal Basic Income, in which 100 residents will be given $500-dollars-a-month, with no strings attached. The program aims to create a level of income that no one will fall beneath. By providing impoverished residents a regular sum of money that they can use on anything they wish, be it food, clothes, gas, or starting a new venture, those behind the program believe it could go a long way to give people enough support to try out new ideas.

Many liberal groups have expressed substantive concerns over President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh. However, on Thursday, the abortion advocacy group NARAL voiced a rather odd, personal objection to Kavanaugh: his first name. “We´ll be D****D if we´re going to let five MEN—including some frat boy named Brett—strip us of our hard-won bodily autonomy and reproductive rights,” they wrote in a tweet. (Tweets/Videos) NARAL was not the only one to go after Judge Kavanaugh’s first name rather than his record. Late-night comedian Stephen Colbert joked that Kavanaugh’s name “sounds less like a Supreme Court justice and more like

It´s often been observed that special counsel Robert Mueller, assigned to investigate alleged Trump-Russia collusion in the 2016 presidential campaign, has yet to charge anyone with a crime involving Trump-Russia collusion in the 2016 presidential campaign. The biggest of Mueller´s indictments, that of one-time Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, has no connection at all to collusion. And until a few days ago, it appeared to have no connection to Donald Trump, either. Now, though, Mueller has revealed why he believes the Manafort prosecution is related to the 2016 Trump campaign. It´s a small part, a very small part, of the overall charges

WASHINGTON — Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, has asked federal prosecutors to help review the government documents of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, according to a letter obtained by The New York Times on Wednesday. Mr. Rosenstein’s request was an unusual insertion of politics into federal law enforcement. While the Justice Department has helped work on previous Supreme Court nominations, department lawyers in Washington typically carry out that task, not prosecutors who pursue criminal investigations nationwide. But in an email sent this week to the nation’s 93 United States attorneys, Mr. Rosenstein asked each

Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement from the Supreme Court, and President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to succeed him, is the doomsday scenario liberals feared when Senate Republicans thwarted the appointment of Merrick Garland in 2016: The GOP’s brazen act of democratic sabotage will almost certainly deliver the high court to the far right for a generation. In the years ahead, the court will probably further erode reproductive rights, gay rights and voting rights, ushering in the darkest era in American history since the post-Reconstruction period. Sounds hysterical, right? After all, Democrats will get their chance at
