The friends of Charles Taylor in Washington (gold concessions for PR):
"Hyman and several other lobbyists who defended Taylor in the United States said they were motivated primarily by humanitarian or religious concerns, not by greed or profit. 'Money was never the factor. It was a great loss for me and for the firm,' said Hyman, whose former company, Swidler & Berlin, received about $630,000 from Liberia from September 1997 to April 1999, according to the prosecution. 'I was never representing Charles Taylor. I was representing the 3 million citizens of the country. They were the ones who were really suffering. I was trying to see if I could resolve some of the problems between the United States and the Liberian government.'"IPCC errors: facts and spin"
But Hyman, who was awarded a concession to oversee Liberia's shipping registry, and the others also had significant economic interests in the region. The conservative evangelical preacher Pat Robertson received a 1999 concession to run a gold-mining exploration in southeastern Liberia.
Robertson, meanwhile, offered to approach top Bush administration officials on Taylor's behalf, Taylor told prosecutors. Frustrated that the United States would not do anything to prevent Taylor's fall from power, Robertson lashed out at Bush in 2003, accusing him of 'undermining a Christian, Baptist president to bring in Muslim rebels to take over the country.'
A spokesman for Robertson, Chris Roslan, acknowledged that Robertson was awarded the gold concession by the Liberian government but said there was no 'quid pro quo' to provide Liberia with political favors in return."
Fanger-in-Chief Goldberg has got it in for Flynt and Hillary Mann Leverett whose anti-Semitic sin is providing suggestions for dealing with Iran other than genocide against the Iranian people.
"How is Toyota Like Citigroup & Goldman Sachs?":
"Toyota North America hired several employees directly from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). These former government employees helped to end NHTSA probes into unintended acceleration occurring in some of the same vehicles that are now being massively recalled and which are apparently responsible for causing deaths. The probes were ended in 2002-03, and the employees consistently lobbied against any expanded inquiry into these issues over the past decade."This is true (at least the first paragraph):
"Rush Limbaugh (the self-professed conservative and 'patriot') works directly for Clear Channel Premier Radio Networks, which is owned by Bain Capital Partners http://www.baincapital.com/ and Thomas H. Lee Partners http://www.thl.com/index.html.
Bain Capital's CEO is Orit Gadiesh, an Israeli national who served in Israeli Army Intelligence."
"The daughter of an Israeli general whose 75th birthday celebrations she attended at the weekend, she did her own turn in the army (in intelligence) before following up her degree in psychology with a teaching position at her alma mater Hebrew University. A year's study leave in the US resulted in her going out with a Harvard Business School student and coming to the view that she should try that line herself.
Though she spoke little English she was accepted for the prestigious course and graduated in the top tier with the Brown prize for the most outstanding marketing student."
Note that a probable next President of the United States, Mitt Romney, used to be CEO of Bain, and is credited with saving it from financial ruin, a fact which should help Romney's media coverage. Limbaugh on the payroll of World Jewry probably explains why World Jewry rushed to his defense when he dipped his toes into the dangerous waters of anti-Semitism.
