Well, well — the CEO of LightSquared has abruptly resigned, just days after the FCC suspended conditional approval of a waiver the company needed to complete its high-speed broadband network. Until recently, the final approval appeared imminent despite the military’s warning that the network would interfere with military operations, which has been known for quite a long time.
It appears the Daily Caller’s reporting on emails and documents indicating political ties and numerous meetings between LightSquared and Obama administration officials as the company was undergoing regulatory review are the proximate cause of the resignation, though none of that was mentioned.
Sanjiv Ahuja will remain as chairman of the board. But a new appointee to the LightSquared board is Philip Falcone, the CEO of Harbinger Capital Partners, which created LightSquared from its predecessor, SkyTerra. Such an intertwined bunch of companies and people seems to be the norm among the cronies of His Oneness and big donors to the Democrats…
The 5,300-year-old corpse found in the permafrost of the Italian Alps in 1991 had a few health challenges, including Lyme disease and a bad ticker, according to a new report. As technology continues to advance, we may one day be able to determine definitively whether he was murdered.
…not as I do. Perhaps Our Lady of Perpetual Dissatisfaction realized the governors wouldn’t be satisfied with the very healthy but not so tasty lunch menu for that day. Of course, she was joining the governors for dinner…
If you recall, His Oneness was quick to have John McCain branded a racist for criticizing Obama. His minions have already begun doing it again. Now Obama has called on churches to support him, and launched an “African Americans for Obama” group.
In 2008, the Obama campaign sent out hordes of representative to black churches every Sunday to brainwash congregations, cheerfully paying preachers for the ears of their captive audiences. That Obama feels this new, additional step is necessary tells me that he fears his betrayals have not gone unnoticed.
Now that the smoke has cleared from the hearings on the budget presented by His Oneness, we don’t have to look through anything thicker than some fog and a few weeds to see the real truth — Obama and the Democrats have not the slightest intention of doing anything about the deficit except expanding it. And Treasury Secretary Geithner thinks he’s being clever when he admits the new budget doesn’t touch the problem, but they don’t like Rep. Paul Ryan’s sensible plan.
