    Rolling Stone ^ | July 13, 2015 | By Simon Vozick-Levinson
    "Scott Walker is a national disgrace," reads the entirety of AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka's statement. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is one of the most hardcore right-wing extremists in America. His slash-and-burn policies have gutted Wisconsin workers' collective bargaining rights, defunded Planned Parenthood and more – all of which has made him a prime punching bag for progressives around the country. For some reason, the Republican zealot is hell-bent on conducting a doomed campaign for president in 2016, a painfully obvious fact which he "revealed" Monday morning after months of tedious teasing, including one recent public appearance in which he bizarrely...
  • Recording of Mariah Carey's sour notes at Rockefeller Center tree show is blamed on angry workers

    It’s her own fault she can’t carry a tune. But sources close to Mariah Carey’s widely panned NBC tree-lighting performance at 30 Rock believe disgruntled techies are to blame for leaking a vocals-only recording of her woeful Wednesday night appearance. Their motive? Revenge! As Confidenti@l reported Thursday, production workers attached to the NBC broadcast were upset that Carey kept them waiting three hours in the winter cold Tuesday night, and ultimately failing to show for a taping of her Christmas performance. That number was supposed to air on Wednesday’s broadcast. The network and the diva were left with no choice...
  • Ex-NFL referee refused to work Redskins games because of team name

    Earlier Wednesday Mike Ditka made the news with his brash comments in favor of the Washington Redskins keeping their controversial nickname.. Now it's time to meet his polar opposite, at least as far as this issue is concerned. Mike Carey, a recently hired rules analyst for CBS Sports, spent 19 seasons as an NFL referee but did not officiate a Redskins game for nearly all of the last eight years of his career. That was by request — because he disapproves of their name.

    Attorney General Eric Holder is in Ferguson, Mo., ostensibly to investigate the shooting of an unarmed African-American by a white police officer. What he is not investigating is the shooting of an unarmed African-American woman by his own federal officers, in his own jurisdiction, the District of Columbia. And that has the family of the late Miriam Carey so outraged, they announced Wednesday they plan to double the amount of money in their lawsuit against the federal government to $150 million. While the attorney general looks for the possibility of bad intentions and a wrongful death by an officer in...

    Contending for the Faith and the Genesis Mandate by James J. S. Johnson, J.D., Th.D. * Believers are commanded to share the gospel, but they sometimes face political obstacles when they try to “earnestly contend for the faith.”1 For example, in the early 1800s missionary William Carey, the Father of Modern Missions, began evangelizing India’s prodigious population. But despite heroic efforts, his work was frustrated by colonial politics. British colonial policy forbade introducing any activity that disturbed local customs, and his translating of the Holy Bible into Hindi was already aggravating some indigenous customs. Carey’s Great Commission work was being...

    WASHINGTON — The Air Force fired the general in charge of its nuclear missiles on Friday, just two days after a Navy admiral with top nuclear weapons responsibilities was sacked. Both men are caught up in investigations of alleged personal misconduct, adding to a cascade of turmoil inside the nation’s nuclear weapons force. The Air Force removed Maj. Gen. Michael Carey, a 35-year veteran, from his command of 20th Air Force, responsible for all 450 of the service’s intercontinental ballistic missiles. Carey, who took his post in Wyoming in June 2012, will be reassigned pending the outcome of an investigation...

    The governor who led New York State out of the fiscal crisis of the 1970s died Sunday at the age of 92. Hugh Leo Carey’s last great public service came when he emerged from retirement in 2005 to fight a proposed constitutional amendment weakening New York’s executive budget law. At a September 2005 conference sponsored by the Empire Center for New York State Policy, Carey denounced the proposed amendment as “a power grab and a purse grab” by the state legislature. Harking back to the tourism slogan popularized during his tenure, Carey declared: “For God’s sake, if you love New...

No one has pulled off an exact bid in more than 30 years -- plus, the dude had already won $500 in cash for nailing the exact price of a cooker earlier in the show -- but after the showcase stunner, Drew was more fired up to talk about spaying and neutering pets.

    Carey tour adds to US fears of gay schism By Jonathan Petre, Religion Correspondent Lord Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, will provoke a fresh storm over homosexuality in the Church next month by blessing hundreds of American traditionalists who are boycotting their own pro-gay bishop. This high-profile intervention by Lord Carey will highlight the growing polarisation in the worldwide Anglican community over the issue and will be criticised as "back-seat driving" by supporters of his successor at Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams. It will also raise the temperature of the debate weeks before the publication of the final report by...

    The UCU has now learned that the two last unaccounted for defendants in the Teamsters money-laundering scandal were sentenced in Mar. 2002, at two hush hush court hearings, which that have gone unreported by major daily newspapers. When the UCU previously reported that scandal figure Jere Nash was sentenced on Apr. 9, it incorrectly reported that the two other defendants who pled guilty with Nash, had not yet been sentenced. Both were sentenced some 54 months after they pled guilty on Sept. 18, 1997. The three engaged in a series of schemes which led to the embezzlement of some $885,000...

    Almost 55 months after confessing felonious conduct, Teamster money-laundering scandal figure, Jere Nash, has finally been sentenced. U.S. Dist. Judge Thomas P. Griesa (S.D.N.Y., Nixon) sentenced Nash Apr. 9 to a mere two years probation for his role in a series of schemes which lead to the embezzlement of some $885,000 from the Int'l Bhd. of Teamsters' treasury and to $538,100 in illegal campaign contributions to the failed reelection campaign of expelled IBT president Ron Carey. The sentencing appears to have been hush hush: the four N.Y.C. major dailies and the two Washington, D.C., dailies apparently did not cover the...
