    If you raise money for a nonprofit, but don’t finish all of the projects you were raising it for, you could go to prison for 10 years. This is no exaggeration. This is what happened to former Rep. Steve Stockman of Texas. Earlier this month, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a conviction against him for that very reason. Two of the three judges on the panel were Obama appointees. The third judge, who wrote the opinion, is 82 and was so ill he never showed up for oral arguments. Shockingly, he wrote a politically charged opinion, evidenced right...

    A watchdog group has filed a complaint with the IRS for the mishandling of a non-profit organization run by Rep. Elijah Cummings’ wife, Maya according to One America News’ Jack Posobiec. The findings are shocking. According to the report, the nonprofit group was “cutting deals” with special interest groups directly tied to Cummings’ House Oversight Committee. Maya runs her non-profit “Global Policy Solutions” along with a separate for-profit venture. The watchdog alleges her group “received $6.2 million in grants from various corporate backers including Google, JP Morgan, Prudential & Johnson and Johnson.” The complaint also highlighted that Mrs. Cummings’ separate...

    UPDATE: Co-founder of Brain Treatment Foundation Kara Williams told The Daily Wire via email that the shirt Pratt was photographed wearing does not belong to the organization, contradicting Nicole Fisher: "The shirt he has on in that picture is NOT our shirt. It is a Forged shirt. We were simply showing one of our shirts that uses the same inspiration from the Gadsden flag to represent our veteran program and demonstrate support for general patriotism that the flag represents."

    The cancer research nonprofit founded by former Vice President Joe Biden is shutting down amid his White House run, its director announced. The Biden Cancer Initiative was launched in 2017 as an offshoot of the Obama White House’s Cancer Moonshot program. According to a statement on its website, the initiative suspended all operations effective July 11. Greg Simon, president of the Biden Cancer Initiative, said the organization is “suspending activities given our unique circumstances.” Simon added that “we remain personally committed to the cause, but at this time will have to pause efforts. We thank the community for their incredible...

    **SNIP** Calls made to Rockeymoore Cummings were described as “weird” and “creepy” by Tom Anderson, the director of the National Legal and Policy Center’s Government Integrity Project. “We called the phone number for the nonprofit and she answered it like her personal cell. Then every time we asked a question, she just kept repeating ‘And how can I help you?’ And then finally hung up. It was so creepy,” Anderson told The DCNF. “We pointed out that it was required by law, and her response was ‘And how can I help you?’ It was so weird,” he added. “It’s against...

    Maryland Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings’ wife is breaking the law by not revealing financial disclosures about her nonprofit, an uninvolved legal expert told The Daily Caller News Foundation. Maya Rockeymoore Cummings runs a nonprofit called the Center for Global Policy Solutions that is closely intertwined with a for-profit consulting firm, Global Policy Solutions LLC. The nonprofit has received millions of dollars from groups with interests before the congressman’s committee, potentially buying them favorable treatment, according to a complaint filed with the IRS by the National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC). At least three different groups have requested the forms, and...

    Becker's Hospital Review ^ | January 18, 2019 | Kelly Gooch
    Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo wants to give cities and towns the ability to tax "non-mission essential" properties owned by nonprofit colleges and hospitals, according to a WPRI-TV report. The idea is part of the governor's proposed $9.9-billion budget for the fiscal year that begins July 1. The budget also reportedly lowers funding for the Payment in Lieu of Taxes program, which compensates municipalities for property tax revenue lost due to non-taxable properties. The proposed budget would cut $5 million from PILOT funding. State officials said allowing cities and towns to tax properties owned by nonprofit hospitals and colleges would...

    Liberal billionaire George Soros spent more on lobbying during President Donald Trump's first year in office than he has in any previous year, disclosure forms show.

Soros's group reported spending $4.6 million during the first half of 2017 on its lobbying efforts. During the third quarter, Soros added $1.25 million to the total.

    Jonathan’s father always told him he would never amount to anything other than a drug dealer. He entered the foster care system when he was 12. At 18, he was in college, but had to drop out to take care of his ill grandmother. “I always told myself I would graduate college and wouldn’t be a statistic in the foster care system,” said Jonathan, 26, who gave only his first name to protect his privacy. But at 21, he was homeless and jobless. “One day I Googled ‘help with foster kids aging out,’” Jonathan said, and he found Youth Villages,...

    Launched in 2015, the fair-wage pizza shop will close at the end of the year, according to Bing Broderick, executive director for the nonprofit Haley House, which oversees the shop. While popular, the shop is not breaking even financially, which has put stress on the wider nonprofit organization. “I don’t think anyone is looking at it as a failure,” said Luther Pinckney, a team leader at Dudley Dough, which is in the Bruce C. Bolling Municipal Building. “It’s an experiment, and some very good things came out of that, such as skill-building for staff and being in this building at...

    The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a liberal, Alabama-based 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization that has gained prominence on the left for its "hate group" designations, pushes millions of dollars to offshore entities as part of its business dealings, records show. Additionally, the nonprofit pays lucrative six-figure salaries to its top directors and key employees while spending little on legal services despite its stated intent of "fighting hate and bigotry" using litigation, education, and other forms of advocacy.
  • It's a slam dunk: End federal subsidies for sports stadiums

    Washington Examiner ^ | July 23, 2017 | Erica Jedynak & John Tidwell
    [snip]Subsidizing ballparks for billionaire owners and millionaire players, however, shouldn't be part of the equation. According to the Brookings Institution, the stadium loophole has cost federal taxpayers $3.2 billion for 36 professional sports facilities since 2000. Maybe bringing together two senators from vastly different states and from widely different ideologies — U.S. Sen. James Lankford, an Oklahoma Republican, and U.S. Sen. Cory Booker, a New Jersey Democrat — will help inspire a fractious Congress to work together on a bipartisan bill to cut federal subsidies for sports stadiums. The bill would end the federal tax giveaway for municipal bonds used...

    YOU WON’T BELIEVE THIS! CRUZ SUPPORTERS ATTEMPT COUP AT EAGLE FORUM! Conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly has been a national leader of the conservative movement since the publication of her best-selling 1964 book, A Choice Not An Echo. She has been a leader of the pro-family movement since 1972 when she led the fight to defeat the Equal Rights Amendment. Phyllis Schlafly is 91 years-old.

    If you object to increasing the number of Muslims coming to the US as “refugees,” you are part of a “pocket of resistance” that is being targeted by big money nonprofits that together are in line to receive a billion dollars from the federal government to bring them here. Michael Patrick Leahy has a shocking, detailed report at Breitbart. The nine contractors receiving huge payments from the White House’s $1 billion U.S. Refugee Resettlement Program have launched an aggressive PR campaign to crush what they call “pockets of resistance” to the Muslim migration into the United States. That campaign is...

    Planned Parenthood is planning to spend at least $20 million fighting Republicans at the ballot box next year as the group punches back against GOP efforts to end its federal funding. "Extremists made the 2016 election about attacking reproductive rights," Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, who was grilled extensively on Capitol Hill in September, said in a video announcing the effort Tuesday. The group is planning to focus on the White House and Senate races in a few key states, including New Hampshire, Ohio, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The states not only have potentially competitive Senate races, but are also...

    Good360, which provides charities with goods from businesses, donated $18,022 in goods to an affiliate of the National Network of Abortion Funds, which calls abortion “a fundamental human right.” In 2013, a charity whose board is chaired by Carly Fiorina donated $18,022 of goods to an organization that provides financial assistance to women seeking abortions. Fiorina, the Republican presidential candidate, has served as the chair of Good360 since 2012. The organization facilitates donations from companies to nonprofits by allowing the companies to donate products, and the nonprofits to select the products they need on an online marketplace. Good360 then delivers...

    One Marin County school district hopes to set a national example when it comes to healthy eating. Sausalito Marin City School District started serving only organic and GMO-free meals to students this week, becoming the first school district in the nation to do so. It's an extension of what is considered to be a successful pilot program begun in 2013 at Bayside MLK Jr. Academy in Marin City. The other school in the district, Willow Creek Academy in Sausalito, has now joined Bayside MLK Jr. Academy in installing a permanent program. “The results speak for themselves,” Steve Van Zant, superintendent...
