The Village Voice has the backstory on this vintage Scientology propaganda video. Cult honcho David Miscavige (“[the little dude] wearing weird Hermes/goatse shirt”) has a glassy-eyed cameo.
Georgia voters were warned about Nathan Deal but voted him governor anyway, overlooking compelling evidence that he is a crook. Grifters never change.
Two weeks after Gov. Nathan Deal signed a $30 million tax break for Delta, the airline upgraded Deal and his wife to first class — “Diamond” medallion status that the company awards to its most valued customers. …
Delta put the combined value of the awards at just under $8,000, well above the $25 gift limit included in the executive order Deal signed that covers ethics for his office and others under his authority.
“This was obviously a thank you for signing that [tax] bill,” said William Perry, executive director of the government watchdog group Common Cause Georgia.
Delta gave similar — although less valuable — awards to key lawmakers last year, including to the sponsor of the tax-break legislation.
