Exclusive: Koch brothers will not use funds to try to block Trump nomination
Yahoo News - 12 months
By Michelle Conlin NEW YORK (Reuters) - The Koch brothers, the most powerful conservative mega donors in the United States, will not use their $400 million political arsenal to try to block Republican front-runner Donald Trump's path to the presidential nomination, a spokesman told Reuters on Wednesday. The decision by the billionaire industrialists is another setback to Republican establishment efforts to derail the New York real estate mogul's bid for the White House, and follows speculation the Kochs would soon launch a "Trump Intervention." "We have no plans to get involved in the primary," said James Davis, spokesman for Freedom Partners, the Koch brothers’ political umbrella group. Three sources close to the Kochs said the brothers made the decision because they were concerned that spending millions of dollars attacking Trump would be money wasted, since they had not yet seen any attack on Trump stick.

Sean Noble, 'Wizard' Behind Koch Brothers' Donor Network, Now On The Outs
Huffington Post - over 3 years
In 2009, as conservative consultant Sean Noble was poised to launch the Center to Protect Patient Rights, an Arizona-based advocacy group, he was invited to one of the secretive conferences for wealthy donors and prominent politicos hosted by multibillionaires Charles and David Koch. Noble’s entree to the Kochs’ fundraising kingdom came via Randy Kendrick, a conservative philanthropist and a regular attendee at the Kochs' confabs. Kendrick, a fellow Arizonan, proved to be instrumental in building and financing Noble's outfit. She helped introduce Noble to the Koch donor world and has kicked in previously unreported seven-figure checks to the center, multiple GOP consultants familiar with the group told The Huffington Post. The center's growth has been staggering. Kendrick’s largess is part of an estimated $200 million that’s flowed to Noble's group since 2009. By 2010, ahead of that year's midterm congressional elections, Noble's center had evolved into a giant conduit through whic ...

Alabama standoff enters third day as official says child held hostage in bunker cries for parents
Fox News - about 4 years
More than three days after he allegedly shot dead a school bus driver, grabbed a 5-year-old child and slipped into an underground bunker in the rural U.S., Jimmy Lee Dykes was showing no signs Friday of turning himself over to police. Hostage negotiators spoke into a narrow ventilation pipe leading into the bunker, trying to talk the 65-year-old, said to hold anti-government views, into freeing the boy. One local official said the child had been crying for his parents. Dykes, described by neighbors as threatening and violent, is accused of pulling the boy at random from the bus Tuesday and killing the driver who tried to protect the 21 children aboard. The gunman and the boy were holed up in a small underground room on his property that authorities likened to a tornado shelter, not uncommon in the rural South. A state lawmaker said the shelter has electricity, food and TV, and there were signs that the standoff along a dirt road could continue for some time. "The three past ...

Alabama court won't stop removal of front yard grave
Fox News - over 4 years
An Alabama appeals court has refused to block an order requiring a homeowner to remove the body of his late wife from a grave in his front yard, but the legal wrangling continues. The Alabama Court of Civil Appeals denied the request by homeowner James Davis. He buried his wife Patsy outside their home in Stevenson after her death in 2009, and the city is trying to make him move the grave. The 73-year-old homeowner said he merely sought to honor his wife's request to remain on their lot in the northeastern Alabama city, where they lived for decades in a log house he built. She is buried in a vault and casket beside the front porch; the gray marble tombstone and flowers are visible from the street. Davis claims the grave is a family burial plot and is legal under state law. The city contends the grave constitutes an illegal cemetery and has filed suit trying to make him move it. After Davis appealed a circuit court ruling requiring him to remove the remains from the front ya ...

This Former Stanford Exec Who Allegedly Duped Investors With Her Ex-Lover Is Going To Prison
Business Insider - over 4 years
A former executive for convicted Ponzi schemer R. Allen Stanford will admit to blocking a probe into his $7 billion financial fraud, federal prosecutors said Tuesday. Ex-Stanford lackey Laura Pendergest-Holt is expected to plead guilty to obstruction of justice in exchange for a three-year prison sentence, according to the Department of Justice. The news comes after Stanford himself received a 110-year sentence for fraud on Thursday, falling from grace after formerly being the 205th richest man in the country. Pendergest-Holt, a 38-year-old who was the chief investment officer for Stanford, was charged in 2009 with misleading investors with James Davis, her ex-lover and boss, Bloomberg reported Tuesday. Davis testified during Stanford's trial that Stanford approved of the romance, Bloomberg reported.

Seeing the bigger Orthodox picture at Pascha
Get Religion - almost 5 years
Believe it or not, Orthodox Christians do return to church during the daylight hours on Pascha Sunday, even after the glorious 3-hour-plus liturgical siege that is our midnight celebration of the Resurrection of Christ. After heading home for six hours of sleep (depending on the schedule of each particular parish) and recovery from breaking the long fasting season of Great Lent (no meat or dairy during Lent and Holy Week), we come back to the suddenly quiet, sun-lit sanctuary for a service called Agape Vespers. Yes, Vespers in daylight. It’s complicated and another symbol that Easter has turned the world upside down. It is a tradition, in this service, for the Gospel readings to be shared in as many languages as possible — depending on the skills and lives of the people in the parish. Our parish — Holy Cross Orthodox Church in Linthicum, just south of Baltimore city — is part to the Antiochian Archdiocese (Arab roots), but at least 80 percent of the church consists of converts a ...
