Common Cause Asks Court About Thomas Speech at Koch Brothers Event

February 16, 2011 by legitgov

Common Cause Asks Court About Thomas Speech at Koch Brothers Event 15 Feb 2011 Discrepancies in reports about an appearance by Justice [sic] Clarence Thomas at a political retreat for wealthy conservatives three years ago have prompted new questions to the Supreme Court from a group that advocates changing campaign finance laws. When questions were first raised about the retreat last month, a court spokeswoman said Justice Thomas had made a "brief drop-by" at the event in Palm Springs, Calif., in January 2008 and had given a talk. In his financial disclosure report for that year, however, Justice Thomas reported that the Federalist Society, a prominent conservative legal group, had reimbursed him an undisclosed amount for four days of "transportation, meals and accommodations" over the weekend of the retreat. The event is organized by Charles and David Koch, brothers who have used millions of dollars from the energy conglomerate they run in Wichita, Kan., to finance conservative causes.

Sources in Pakistan claim that when police searched Mr Davis's Honda rental car, they found a telescope, photographs of sensitive defence installations and even sophisticated make-up that could be used for facial disguises.

9/11 whore Ken Feinberg: The same thieving, lying dirt-bag he's always been. That's why Obusha picked him. AP: Gulf claims process under fire --To date, only two final settlements for long-term losses -- including a $10 million payment to a BP associate the fund refuses to identify -- have been paid. 14 Feb 2011 [Eight months after BP destroyed the Gulf Coast,] Tens of thousands of fishermen, oyster shuckers, business owners, hotel operators and hairdressers still await payment. Many others whose claims have been turned down question the evenhandedness. An Associated Press review that included interviews with legal experts, government officials and more than 300 Gulf residents found a process beset by red tape and delay, and at the center of it all a fund administrator whose ties to BP have raised questions about his independence.

HBGary CEO Also Suggested Tracking, Intimidating WikiLeaks' Donors 14 Feb 2011 WikiLeaks and its inner circle of supporters may not have been the only targets of a group of security firms that offered to take on the secret-spilling site on behalf of Bank of America. In an email conversation, the head of one of those firms also suggested going after the thousands of individuals who have donated to the group. Last week the loose hacker group Anonymous released a set of more than 40,000 emails from HBGary Federal, the security firm [terrorist group] whose servers it hacked earlier this month. One of the files in those emails was a PowerPoint presentation that described "the WikiLeaks Threat," created by a group of three security firms that suggested Nixonesque [well, GOP] tactics for sabotaging the site on behalf of Bank of America, including spreading misinformation, launching cyberattacks against it, and pressuring journalists.
