  • Reports: Fox News to Pay Bill O'Reilly 'Tens of Millions' on Way Out

    On Wednesday, Fox News announced that it was parting ways with "The O'Reilly Factor" host Bill O'Reilly, whose ratings dominated the network. But due to a contract O'Reilly signed late last month, he'll be walking away with quite a sizable severance package. "It is a staggering amount," a source involved in the exit maneuverings told CNN Money. The outlet reported that Fox will pay O'Reilly "tens of millions of dollars." Due to a confidentiality agreement, 21st Century Fox and O'Reilly's representatives would not acknowledge the payout. But two well-placed sources told CNN Money that O'Reilly will be paid handsomely as...
  • Bernie Sanders Slams Billionaires, Gets Reminded He Owns 3 Houses

    04/21/2017 5:47:51 AM PDT · by Helicondelta · 33 replies
    Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is having a difficult time with his latest tweet assailing the wealthy. First, Sanders, who ran a progressive presidential campaign criticizing Wall Street and the rich, tweeted out a message Thursday evening with what seems to be a typo, telling billionaires: "You can have it all." After deleting the initial tweet and replacing it with a new one, swapping "can" with "can't", Sanders was mercilessly mocked for questioning how yachts and cars billionaires need when he and his wife bought their third house — a $600,000 beachfront residence — in August.

    The Socialist senator from Vermont, Bernie Sanders, set off a Twitterstorm yesterday with a tweet that was hard to believe. We are living in a nation which worships wealth rather than caring for the poor. I don't think that is the nation we should be living in.— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) March 18, 2017 Needless to say, this towering hypocrisy did not go unnoticed in the Twitterverse: @BernieSanders Says the man who owns 3 homes one which cost over $600,000. I'm guessing you have homeless people you're housing? Do as I say, not as I do?— lc65265 (@lc65265) March 18,...

    The White House doors may have closed on former President Barack Obama’s presidency, but for him and his wife Michelle, the path to lucrative new book deals and paid speeches is wide open. The Obamas recently hired top-dollar attorneys Robert Barnett and Deneen Howell to handle their book contracts, and a high-profile public relations agency — known for repping the Clintons and Mia Farrow — to coordinate speaking appearances. The Obamas haven’t yet set book-release dates or announced any scheduled speeches. The Harry Walker Agency, which exclusively represents former President Bill Clinton, former Secretary-General of the United Nations Kofi Annan,...
  • Clinton Donors Want to Investigate How Hillary Spent $1.5 Billion in Campaign Donations

    Clinton’s fallout is interestingly causing an internal revolution among Hillary’s big donors. At her New York bash to “thank” her big donors of $1 million or more, she took no blame and pointed the finger at Comey and Putin. Her spin did not work and she has lost a lot of credibility according to confidential sources. They were smart enough to realize that even if Russia “hacked” the DNC and Podesta emails, there would be no release if there had been no wrongdoing to begin with. Now Clinton’s biggest backers want a “campaign autopsy,” which could expose Clinton’s entire operation....

    Donald Trump brushed away criticism after appointing a number of billionaires and millionaires to his administration by saying that he wants “people that made a fortune!” The president-elect compared his picks, which have the accumulative wealth of around $14.5 billion, to athletes during a speech at his ‘Thank You’ campaign rally on Thursday in Des Moines, Iowa. “A newspaper criticized me and said, ‘Why can’t they have people of modest means?'” He said to a crowd, Huffington Post reports. “Because I want people that made a fortune! Because now they are negotiating [for] you, OK?… It’s no different than a...

    Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine are throwing a party at the Plaza hotel on Dec. 15 to thank those who donated millions to the campaign. The party will be held in the Grand Ballroom on the third floor, to honor the Hillary for America finance leadership council. Guests expected are big bundlers including Harvey Weinstein, Anna Wintour, Alan Patricof, Tory Burch and Marc Lasry. One insider said, “Hopefully there’s no balconies so nobody can jump.” Unusually, Kaine is throwing his own holiday celebration in NYC earlier the same day.

    A drop in millionaires in Switzerland this year has failed to significantly dent the country’s impressive wealth, as a report by Credit Suisse declares it the richest country in the world yet again. The Global Wealth Report 2016, published on Tuesday by the Swiss bank’s Research Institute, said Switzerland had an average wealth per person of $561,900 in 2016, making Swiss adults 11 times richer than the average world citizen. However Switzerland’s average wealth in 2016 was slightly down on last year’s figure of $567,100. The country experienced the second biggest drop in wealth per adult behind the UK, meaning...

    Peter Thiel is putting his money where his mouth is. The billionaire PayPal cofounder is donating $1.25 million to Donald Trump's campaign, according to a source close to Thiel. Thiel has been a vocal supporter of Trump -- one of the most prominent in Silicon Valley. He spoke at the Republican National Convention and made history when he declared on stage that he was proud to be gay. Thiel's donation will be given through Super PACs and directly to Trump's campaign, according to the source. This is the first time Thiel will be donating to Trump. The donation was first...

    Chelsea Clinton graduated from Stanford University with her life made. She was all set up for a six-figure salary working at the foundation that bore the name of her well-to-do parents. But life was not, and is not, perfect for Chelsea Clinton because she had competition, not for her job, but for her mother’s attention. Seasoned Hillary Clinton critic and #1 New York Times bestselling author Ed Klein’s new book,Guilty as Sin: Uncovering New Evidence of Corruption and How Hillary Clinton and the Democrats Derailed the FBI Investigation, reveals exactly what Chelsea Clinton has to compete against: Huma Abedin.

    Mr. Trump said that Mrs. Clinton is beholden to big-money interests than he is, saying he’s going to spend upwards of $100 million of his own money on his campaign. He challenged her to pony up as much as $30 million of the $250 million she and her husband have earned since they left the White House in 2001. “Why aren’t you putting some money in?” he demanded. Mrs. Clinton did not respond to the challenge.

    Speaking about Hillary Clinton’s tax plan on Monday, Vice President Joe Biden went on a brief tangent about his grandchildren and joked that he was worth less than Sen. Bernie Sanders, a socialist. “I aspire for one of my grandchildren to become wealthy so when they put me in the home, I’ll get a window with a view,” he said. “As I pointed out, it was embarrassing that Bernie Sanders’ net worth is more than mine,” Biden said. “I have less money than a socialist. I don’t know what the hell happened to me.” “I have been doing this for...

    The guest list for a private State Department dinner on higher-education policy was taking shape when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton offered a suggestion. In addition to recommending invitations for leaders from a community college and a church-funded institution, Clinton wanted a representative from a for-profit college company called Laureate International Universities, which, she explained in an email to her chief of staff that was released last year, was “the fastest growing college network in the world.” There was another reason Clinton favored setting a seat aside for Laureate at the August 2009 event: The company was started by a...

    West Virginia Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin’s daughter, Mylan CEO Heather Bresch, who has come under fire for her company’s widely-slammed decision to raise the cost of the EpiPen by 461 Percent since 2007, raised her salary by a whopping 671 percent during her tenure at the pharmaceutical giant. Bresch’s annual income jumped from $2,453,456 in 2007 to $18,931,068 in 2015, coinciding with the astounding price increase on the life-saving emergency allergy shot, The Chicago Tribune reports. In addition to her astoundingly high salary, Bresch reportedly took advantage of a number of unprecedented perks, including personal use of the company’s aircraft....
