    WASHINGTON — Tom Steyer, the billionaire environmentalist and Democratic political donor, announced Monday that his advocacy group, NextGen America, will spend $30 million to help Democrats retake the House in 2018, with the aim of eventually impeaching President Trump. Mr. Steyer also announced that he would not run for Senate or governor in California, as had been speculated. Mr. Steyer, who was a major donor to President Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign, emerged as the largest single political donor of the 2014 midterm election. His group spent $74 million to back Democrats that year, and $87 million in the 2016 elections....

    As President Barack Obama gets set to travel to Copenhagen Thursday night to make the case that Chicago should host the 2016 Olympics, good government groups are torn over how to handle the presidential sales pitch. After all, the moneyed interests behind Chicago’s bid — who bundled nearly $2 million for Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign — are hard to ignore and they raise the specter of influence-peddling that reformists are dedicated to fighting. https://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/10/01/chicago-olympic-committee_n_306135.html

    The United States administration froze a $125 million grant to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), the UN’s agency for “Palestinian refugees”, which was supposed to be delivered on January 1, Channel 10 News reported on Friday, citing three Western diplomats. The amount frozen is one-third of the annual funding the United States provides the organization, according to the report. The three diplomats, who asked to remain anonymous because of the political sensitivity of the issue, told Channel 10 the grant had been frozen until the end of the reexamination of U.S. aid to the Palestinians, which began...

    Left-wing political operatives and Hillary Clinton backers David Brock and Susie Tompkins Buell bankrolled $700,000 allegedly to find people who would accuse then-candidate Donald Trump of sexual misconduct before Election Day 2016. Brock’s American Bridge 21st Century Foundation and Buell, a major donor to the foundation, reportedly donated the six-figure sums to Lisa Bloom’s law firm, which specializes in sexual harassment allegations against public figures, according to a report from the New York Times. Brock gave $200,000, and one of his major donors, Susie Tompkins Buell, gave $500,000. Bloom’s firm capitalized on the sexual harassment allegations against Trump in the...

    ne of Hillary Clinton’s wealthy pals paid $500,000 in an unsuccessful effort to fund women willing to accuse President Trump of sexual misconduct before the 2016 election, The New York Times reported Sunday. Susie Tompkins Buell, the founder of Esprit Clothing and a major Clinton campaign donor for many years, gave the money to celebrity lawyer Lisa Bloom who was working with a number of Trump accusers at the time, according to the paper’s bombshell report. Bloom solicited donors by saying she was working with women who might “find the courage to speak out” against Trump if the donors would...

    Things are not looking good for the DNC. Not only did they get hit with another FEC complaint this week, they closed November millions in debt after the lowest fundraising in 10 years. In contrast, the RNC closed November with a surplus according to the FEC. According to a report by The Daily Caller, this was the worst November for the DNC going back to 2007. The DNC has struggled to raise money all year.
  • Hillary Begs For Money From ‘Outraged’ Liberals to Fight Trump’s Tax Bill

    Hillary Clinton decided to jump in the ring and told her delusional followers to donate money to a political group she financially backs, ‘Swing Left’ in order to fight the new tax cuts. Makes sense. Hillary Clinton tweeted, “Something productive to do with your outrage today” linking to Swing Left. Swing Left linked to a fundraising page with the caption, “The #GOPTaxScam is on its way to Trump’s desk to be signed into law. Let that sink in for a minute. Then channel your rage by donating to the opponents of every swing district Republican who voted for it here.”

    Minnesota cities, counties and state agencies have spent more than $275,000 in taxpayer funds on a provocative racial equity program led by a national leftwing advocacy group that urges local governments to “resist Trump” and bases its training for public employees on the premise that government institutions and workers are inherently racist, whether they realize it or not. “Resist Trump” Racial Equity Program Pockets More Than 275k From MN Taxpayers Written by Tom Steward on December 18, 2017 Print Minnesota cities, counties and state agencies have spent more than $275,000 in taxpayer funds on a provocative racial equity program led...

    The president of the University of Southern California is the highest paid college president in California and among the best paid in the country. In 2015, C.L. Max Nikias made nearly $3.2 million to lead the Los Angeles-based private school, according to the Chronicle of Higher Education’s recently updated roundup of executive pay. The publication analyzed data from more than 600 private universities and nearly 250 public colleges.
  • Anti-Trump Liberal Activist Group Pulls in Another $400,000 In Gov’t Grants

    Make the Road New York has been awarded more than $25 million in gov't grants since 2002 A liberal activist group that has been involved in direct action campaigns against President Donald Trump and Republicans was recently awarded $400,000 more in taxpayer-backed government grants, records show.

    The Washington Times ^ | December 17, 2017 | S.A. Miller
    After California’s then-Attorney General Kamala D. Harris announced felony pimping charges last year against the two owners of Backpage.com — a classified-ad website that is a hub for sex trafficking and prostitution, one of the men cut a $10,000 check to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s super PAC. Mrs. Pelosi’s political action committee, House Majority PAC, has resisted giving the money back, and an aide to Mrs. Pelosi said the California Democrat knows nothing about the contribution. The uproar over sexual harassment that began with the Harvey Weinstein scandal has intensified the scrutiny of political contributions linked to Backpage, which...
  • Kirsten Gillibrand Received Over $20,000 From A High School In California

    12/14/2017 7:59:39 AM PST · by gaggs · 30 replies
    Kirsten Gillibrand received over 20,000 thousand dollars from Palo Alto High School. Why is a California high school giving $20,400 to a Junior New York Senator? This really makes no sense. Why is a public school giving taxpayer money to ANY campaign? Is the high school name BS and meant to hide the real donor? Is this a money laundering scheme? Palo Alto High School is in one of the richest neighborhoods in the U.S. It is a pipeline to the University of California system, Stanford, and Ivy League schools. What’s more even the teachers are extraordinarily well-connected. For instance,...

    Campus reform ^ | 12/6/17 | Kyle Perisic
    Over the last three election cycles, a whopping 95 percent of political donations from University of Nebraska, Lincoln (UNL) employees have gone to Democrats. The disparity is even greater than suggested by voter registration records, which show that more than 50% of professors across 7 major departments identify as Democrats. The university has been desperately disputing allegations that it is hostile to conservatives ever since a group of professors harassed a student while she recruited for her TPUSA club in August.

    Some Republicans are so fed up with Roy Moore that they aren't just denouncing him, they're helping his Democratic opponent fundraise. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) gifted Doug Jones $100 on Tuesday in order to put "country over party." Former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon was in Alabama campaigning with Moore Tuesday night. He trashed Flake's paltry donation. "C'mon brother, if you're going to write a check, write a check," Bannon said. Flake is a "total embarrassment," Bannon added, mocking the senator for his poor approval ratings (just 30 percent of Arizonans.) Clearly, Flake believes at least some of the...

    Democratic Senate candidate Doug Jones has financially overwhelmed his Republican opponent Roy Moore but all his money may not make a difference in the Alabama Senate special election. Allegations of sexual misconduct against Moore rocked the race, initially boosting Jones’ fundraising and standing in the polls. But polling numbers have tightened in recent days. With the Dec. 12 election roughly a week away, both campaigns are making their final cases to voters for the seat vacated by former Sen. Jeff Sessions, now the attorney general.

    A $100 million fund to appease America-hating players while sticking the knife in patriotic fans. The dying National Football League is choosing its America-hating, national anthem-protesting multimillionaire players over patriotic sports fans by funneling close to $100 million to leftist charities like those founded by admitted communist Van Jones. The corrosive fairy tale, embraced by professional football, that police use black Americans for target practice is malicious nonsense but it is a useful lie, good for direct-mail campaigns and MoveOn solicitations. With this new initiative, NFL Commissar Roger Goodell is affirming for the umpteenth time that it is in the...

    The NFL and a group of players reached an agreement in principle late Wednesday night to partner on a plan to address social justice issues considered important to African-American communities, ESPN has learned. The unprecedented agreement calls for the league to contribute nearly $100 million over seven years to projects dealing with criminal justice reform, law enforcement/community relations and education. During a conference call Wednesday night, Malcolm Jenkins and Anquan Boldin, who lead roughly 40 players who have negotiated with the league office about demonstrations during the national anthem, guided the group through the highlights of the package, which represents...
