    The State Department doled out $13 million in grants for longtime friend and Clinton Foundation donor Muhammad Yunus during Hillary Clinton's tenure as secretary of state, according to federal records. The grants were provided in 18 separate transactions from the U.S. Agency for International Development to the Bangladesh-based Grameen bank, according to a Sunday evening report from the Daily Caller News Foundation, for which Yunus served as a founding board member. Groups associated with Yunus through business relationships received an additional $11 million. Yunus oversaw the distribution of microcredit loans to impoverished borrowers for the bank for over 30 years....

    George Clooney just made himself the personification of Hollywood hypocrisy by denouncing big money in politics in quick succession after having exacerbated the “problem” he identified. Does the man have self-awareness at all? Has playing fantasy characters in the movies destroyed all hold on reality in his mind? Or is he signaling that he really supports Bernie Sanders and is only running fundraisers for Hillary out of a sense of obligation (or fear?). Was this statement, delivered on today’s Meet the Press the equivalent of US prisoners in North Korea blinking SOS in Morse Code?

    We all knew the Clintons were rolling it–I’m talking about money of course. Yes, they’re also rolling in a bunch of lies, especially when it comes to the former first lady’s completely avoidable email fiasco and Benghazi. Nevertheless, if there’s a stark difference between Clinton and her Democratic opponent, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, it’s their tax returns. Sanders’ entire income for the year amounted to less than one of those luxurious paid speeches Clinton is asked to deliver at various companies and banking institutions (via Weekly Standard): Bernie Sanders reportedly earned just over $200,000 in 2014. That same year, Hillary...

    In an interview with two Philadelphia newspapers Monday, Hillary Clinton again refused to release the transcripts to her pricy Wall Street speeches but insisted that she was the most transparent candidate for president. "Well, I can only say this: let's make sure everybody is already as transparent as I," Clinton said when asked whether her refusal to release the transcripts signaled that she had "something to hide." Clinton avoided discussing the transcripts and instead focused on the "30 years" worth of tax returns that she had released. Seeing as rival Bernie Sanders has yet to release his tax returns, Clinton...

    When the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) concludes its investigation of the Hillary Clinton private email server, the worst damage is not likely to come from the former secretary of state having classified information stored on a private server. Earlier this year the FBI probe expanded into possible violations of public corruption laws resulting from her role as secretary of state and her association with the Clinton Foundation."The agents are investigating the possible intersection of Clinton Foundation donations, the dispensation of State Department contracts, and whether regular processes were followed," an intelligence source told FOX News.The concern is that Clinton,...

    After bankrolling everything from the Obama campaign and Occupy Wall Street to open-borders activists and revolutionary movements around the world, billionaire globalist George Soros has a new target: churches and pastors in the nation of Georgia that are worried about surrendering their future to the European Union. Yes, the same EU that Soros, a self-described atheist, recently said was on the “verge of collapse.” The Soros-globalist agenda here is simple and fairly transparent. In essence, Soros and various European governments are tired of pastors from the Georgian Orthodox Church warning their flocks about the dangers of surrendering their sovereignty and...

For two seats at the head table with Clinton, George Clooney and his wife, attorney Amal Clooney, at an April 15 fundraiser, a couple must contribute or raise a whopping $353,400 — a huge ticket price for a hard-dollar fundraiser. The Bay Area fundraiser, hosted at the home of venture capitalist Shervin Pishevar, is one of two events starring the Clooneys.

Moreover, he's benefited from indirect Wall Street contributions and regularly attended retreats hosted by their lobbyists, according to the Wall Street Journal: Yet the Vermont senator has benefited from at least $1.5 million in backing from super PACs and from political groups that...

The New York real estate magnate cut McAuliffe a check for a whopping $25,000 in late March, but that's just a drop in the bucket compared to the largest single donation in McAuliffe's report - a $251,000 gift from billionaire media tycoon Haim Saban in January. That check narrowly bested a $250,000 contribution the following month from Steve Bing, another big...

    Hillary Clinton’s family foundation quietly updated its list of donors last week, significantly reducing the amount that it says has been given by a Mexican telecom tycoon whose company was recently accused of deceptive U.S. advertising. The little-noticed update to the website of the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation added contributions made in the first half of this year. But it also dramatically reduced listed contributions from billionaire Carlos Slim. Prior to the update, Slim was listed as a $1 million to $5 million contributor. The updated version of the site says he has donated between $250,000 and $500,000....

    Christians and conservatives continue to be hoodwinked by FOX News. Not only has the organization been supporting the sodomite agenda, but they have also been one of the top ten donors to the Clinton Family since 1992. Michael Lotfi reported: To many, it seems contrary to intuition that Fox News could be one of the Clinton family’s largest donors for the better part of two decades. Check your intuition at the door- it’s true. According to Federal Election Commission and Center for Responsive Politics data, 21st Century Fox News Corp. has donated more than $3 million to Clinton family accounts....

    Imagine if the Koch brothers had financed a group that was regularly disrupting and shutting down events of candidates that they opposed. Does anybody doubt that the Koch connection would come up in the first paragraph, if not the first sentence, of most news stories about such disruptions? Yet somehow, complete silence from the MSM on the connection of George Soros to #BlackLivesMatter even though he is the providing most of the finances to that organization. Also mysterious is how the MSM also fails to note that Hillary Clinton, whom Soros supports, has not had her events disrupted by #SorosMoneyMatters (also...

    To many, it seems contrary to intuition that Fox News could be one of the Clinton family’s largest donors for the better part of two decades. Check your intuition at the door- it’s true. According to Federal Election Commission and Center for Responsive Politics data, 21st Century Fox News Corp. has donated more than $3 million to Clinton family accounts. Overall, this lands Fox as the Clinton family’s 9th largest donor over the course of the family’s political involvement. (Table of Donors)

    In July, the American Cancer Society and American Express indicated that they no longer donate to Planned Parenthood. The American Cancer Society explained that at one time they did fund a limited amount of cancer control grants for the organization but that program expired several years ago. They said, “The American Cancer Society does not fund—nor has it ever funded—abortion or contraceptive counseling.” American Express said the same thing but added that they haven’t given to Planned Parenthood in over fifteen years. Then, representatives from Ford Motor Company, Coco Cola and Xerox confirmed that they have not given to Planned...

    Planned Parenthood once boasted a list of sponsors that read like a who's who of the Fortune 100, but now some of the biggest companies say they never gave money to the embattled organization. Coca-Cola, Ford and Xerox are all among the companies listed in a roster of corporate sponsors claimed by Planned Parenthood, but representatives for the companies said they either never donated to the organization or had not in years. Planned Parenthood, which is now reeling from the release of two undercover videos in which top officials alluded to selling fetus parts, had published the company names on...

    July 31, 2015 (NewsBusters) -- In response to a series of incriminating under-cover videos from The Center for Medical Progress about the major abortion provider, organizations have been cutting ties -- or denying ties -- to Planned Parenthood. But where nonprofits are concerned, tax records keep the story straight. Between 2010 and 2013, no fewer than 966 individual organizations donated to Planned Parenthood. Of those, 31 gave more than $1 million each during those four years, totaling $374,199,059. The seven highest donors made up $324.8 million of that. These largest Planned Parenthood donors include Warren Buffett, George Soros, Bill Gates, and others....

    I just happened to search Warren Buffet's position on or even a statement about the on-going situation with Planned Parenthood and lo and behold look what I came up with. I've never seen this website in my life but it is conservative and present you with the link.Although there are people on the ground on this issue sometimes the head of a fish needs to be brought to focus. I'm sure they are other money "whales" and high rollers involved but here's a part of the "head"of this rotting fish called the abortion industry.

    NEW YORK, July 30, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) - Until the eve of his presidential campaign, Jeb Bush was director of a philanthropy that gave tens of millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood and financed its advocacy of "unrestricted access to abortion" around the world. The charity also approved money to global abortion providers while he sat on its board. In 2010, Jeb was named one of the founding directors of the Bloomberg Family Foundation, established as a tax-exempt foundation to advance the vision of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. He resigned from the board at the end of 2014...

    Coca-Cola, Ford and Xerox If they sincerely cherish their names and reputations, the principals of Coca-Cola, Ford and Xerox should launch a joint lawsuit against Planned Parenthood. Until the scandalous video showed their doctors talking about the sale of aborted baby parts as ‘taking care of business’, the names of the three multi-nationals, among others, were being openly advertised as corporate sponsors on the Planned Parenthood website. The purveyors of selling aborted baby parts have linked their names to infamy, and in fact disgraced all corporations boldly named on the Planned Parenthood website. Members of the public at large have...

    Representatives from Coca-Cola, Ford Motor Co. and Xerox say they’ve asked Planned Parenthood to remove their names as corporate donors to the embattled organization. The move follows a Daily Signal report revealing the names of 41 companies that Planned Parenthood listed as donors. That list, which was featured on Planned Parenthood’s website, has since been removed. This latest development comes in the wake of two undercover videos that showed Planned Parenthood executives talking about the sale of fetal body parts. Planned Parenthood is facing both federal and state investigations—and the possibility of losing taxpayer funding. Earlier this week, The Daily...
