From the New York Times in the USA:
Wal-Mart Finds an Ally in Conservatives
By MICHAEL BARBARO and STEPHANIE STROM
Published: September 8, 2006
As Wal-Mart Stores struggles to rebut criticism from unions and Democratic leaders, the company has discovered a reliable ally: prominent conservative research groups like the American Enterprise Institute, the Heritage Foundation and the Manhattan Institute.
Top policy analysts at these groups have written newspaper opinion pieces around the country supporting Wal-Mart, defended the company in interviews with reporters and testified on its behalf before government committees in Washington.
But the groups — and their employees — have consistently failed to disclose a tie to the giant discount retailer: financing from the Walton Family Foundation, which is run by the Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton’s three children, who have a controlling stake in the company.

Who, while in The Netherlands, claimed to be feminist and pro-gay … IF that could be used to put down Muslims.
Now, she works for the queer bashing, women bashing, corrupt AEI.
There she is now a political (though very probably not physical) bedfellow of infamous Republican gay bashing gay prostitute and fake journalist, James Guckert, aka ‘Jeff Gannon‘.

Jeff Gannon of Talon News
On Saturday 24 September, there were big demonstrations against the Iraq war all over the world.
Including Washington, DC; capital of the USA.
There, organizers had predicted 100.000 demonstrators: over 300.000 came.
Next day, George W. Bush supporters organized a pro war rally at the same spot.
They predicted 20.000 demonstrators.
Estimates of the numbers who turned up vary between 100 and 400.
One of those (so, on his own, maybe already 1% of total demonstrators) was “Jeff Gannon”.
Fake Jeff Gannon, as Jim Guckert is his real name.
Ex-fake journalist under his fake name, for softball questions at the Bush White House.
Real gay basher.
Real gay prostitute.
And real chickenhawk, like the tiny group of “Gannon” co-thinkers there in Washington.
Gannon had a sign: “Let our troops finish their mission”.
Yeah right, let them die by the thousands for Dick Cheney’s Halliburton profits.
Meanwhile, “Gannon” thinks, I will continue my mission of blow jobs for money. The similarity is in the military uniforms …
Reporters did not record whether “Gannon”/Guckert charged his fellow chickenhawks “special patriotic reduced rates”.

Masters of War
Come you masters of war
You that build all the guns
You that build the death planes
You that build the big bombs
You that hide behind walls
You that hide behind desks
I just want you to know
I can see through your masks
You that never done nothin’
But build to destroy
You play with my world
Like it’s your little toy
You put a gun in my hand
And you hide from my eyes
And you turn and run farther
When the fast bullets fly
Like Judas of old
You lie and deceive
A world war can be won
You want me to believe
But I see through your eyes
And I see through your brain
Like I see through the water
That runs down my drain
You fasten the triggers
For the others to fire
Then you set back and watch
When the death count gets higher
You hide in your mansion
As young people’s blood
Flows out of their bodies
And is buried in the mud
You’ve thrown the worst fear
That can ever be hurled
Fear to bring children
Into the world
For threatening my baby
Unborn and unnamed
You ain’t worth the blood
That runs in your veins
How much do I know
To talk out of turn
You might say that I’m young
You might say I’m unlearned
But there’s one thing I know
Though I’m younger than you
Even Jesus would never
Forgive what you do
Let me ask you one question
Is your money that good
Will it buy you forgiveness
Do you think that it could
I think you will find
When your death takes its toll
All the money you made
Will never buy back your soul
And I hope that you die
And your death’ll come soon
I will follow your casket
In the pale afternoon
And I’ll watch while you’re lowered
Down to your deathbed
And I’ll stand o’er your grave
‘Til I’m sure that you’re dead
