    This election could be close, and as such, resources will be very, very important to candidates across the country. Unfortunately, when there is an important and close election, that not only leads to ridiculous fundraising emails from campaigns (Lord knows there are enough of those from all sides), it also brings out the grifters – opportunists who rip off an unsuspecting public under the guise of helping a candidate or cause. Don’t fall for it. If you want to help a candidate, and have the money to do so, give directly to that candidate or that candidate’s party. If you...

    Almost half of the donations received by ActBlue, a massive liberal fundraising platform, in 2019 were from “unemployed” donors. “Our biggest concern is foreign money. Do you really believe that half of the people who are giving money through ActBlue don’t have a job?” John Pudner, the president of Take Back Action Fund, which conducted the research, told the Washington Times. “To me, that just seems absurd.” The conservative nonprofit analyzed data from the Federal Elections Commission and found that 48.4% of donations last year were from the unemployed, Fox News reported. "After downloading hundreds of millions of [dollars in]...

    Several companies have been bragging recently that they’re providing financial support to the official Black Lives Matter organization to burnish their PR image. No doubt they’re getting Woke points for doing so. But do the executives at those companies have any idea how radical this group is and what it’s trying to achieve? The Daily Signal reported earlier this week that at least 18 corporations have pledged hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation. The list includes: DoorDash, Deckers, Amazon, Gatorade, Microsoft, Glossier, 23andMe, AirBnB, Unilever, Bungie, Nabisco, Dropbox, Fitbit, Developer Digital, Skillshare, Square...

    We reported on May 30th the recent riots in Democrat-led cities around the country were coordinated and related to three main groups: 1) US based Islamist Organizations, 2) Domestic terrorists, and 3) Others related to the Democrat Party. Today we uncover a fourth major contributor, a Clinton pardoned member of the Weather Underground, Susan Rosenberg. There clearly was no reason for the mass riots taking place around the country after the death of the individual at the hands of the police in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Everyone who saw the police brutality was appalled and outraged at the sight of the policeman...

    A probe by the Department of Education into colleges that accept foreign investments and donations has uncovered $6 billion in previously unreported foreign donations from US adversaries including China and Russia.

In a letter from the department, general counsel Reed Rubinstein said that while some colleges recognized that foreign cash from US adversaries could pose a security risk,...

    The Trump administration is focused on countering the disinformation from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak, and is spreading news about U.S. humanitarian efforts, a state department official recently said. To deflect blame over its initial mismanagement of the CCP virus outbreak, the Chinese regime has embarked on a concerted disinformation campaign to posit the unfounded theory that the virus did not originate in China, and may have even come from the United States. On top of this, the CCP has sought to brand itself as a humanitarian leader amid global response efforts, touting its provision of...

    National Public Radio (NPR) continues to reinforce the years-old case for why its taxpayer-funding should be pulled by hiring a partisan to head up the entire organization. The new president and CEO of NPR, John Lansing, contributed $500 each to Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) Aug. 17, 2019, and Kentucky challenger for Sen. Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY), senate seat Amy McGrath (D) Aug. 15, 2019, according to Federal Election Commission records. The records suggest he made his contributions just less than a month before NPR announced his appointment to head up the government-funded news organization Sept. 5, raising questions about conflicts of...

    The bulk of Jeffrey Epstein’s donations to MIT came after three university vice presidents learned about his status as a sex offender, an investigation found. Epstein, the deceased financier who was convicted in 2008 of sex crimes involving underage victims, made 10 donations to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology between 2002 and 2017, totaling $850,000, according to the findings of a report by the law firm Goodwin Procter commissioned by the university. That was $50,000 more than university officials had previously said. Epstein also visited MIT nine times between 2013 and 2017. **SNIP** Nine of those donations came after Epstein’s...
