  • Country Star John Rich Tells 10-Year-Old Secret Story About Rush Helping Kids With Cancer

    There was, in the hours following Rush Limbaugh’s death Wednesday at the age of 70, a rush of praise and of judgment-passing about his career and what it meant in the world of politics. The human stories about Limbaugh tended to get lost if you didn’t look hard enough. Thankfully, country music superstar John Rich was there to remind us. In 2011, Rich was one of the final two contestants on “Celebrity Apprentice,” hosted by our future former president, Donald Trump. (In a contemporary piece that has aged like a chef’s kiss, Billboard noted that “Trump was presiding over ‘The...

    Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa announced the formation of the Tua Foundation on Thursday, and one of the first beneficiaries of the new charity was Alabama-based Big Oak Ranch. In announcing the launch of the Tua Foundation, Tagovailoa said its “primary focus will be on charitable endeavors in south Florida, Alabama and Hawaii.” Tagovailoa was an All-American quarterback for Alabama and is a native of Hawaii. The nonprofit organization’s first action featured donations of $16,667 apiece to the Police Athletic League of North Miami, Big Oak Ranch and the Polynesian Football Hall of Fame, which is in Hawaii.

    In America today, it is way too tempting to spend all our time attacking or celebrating the presidents we support. People seem to either hate Donald Trump or hate Joe Biden. We are locked into attacking or promoting presidents, not the principles or program priorities we believe will ensure the future for this amazing country. Yes, “Elections have consequences,” but because we vote for presidents over principles, we don’t often know what presidents will do until they get elected. Whoever Republicans put up for election in 2024, and even for House and Senate seats in 2022, we need to challenge...

    The Republican Party in Arizona’s largest county voted Saturday to censure the widow of the late Sen. John McCain after she endorsed Democrat Joe Biden. The state GOP is planning a similar vote later this month. The Maricopa County GOP’s censure resolution called Cindy McCain a "troubled individual, with a past riddled with drug abuse and illegalities associated with such behavior." The measure also accused Cindy McCain of supporting "leftist causes" including gay marriage, larger government and "others that run counter to Republican values." Cindy McCain has acknowledged suffering a three-year addiction to pain medicine from 1989 to 1992 and...

    Even during the COVID-19 pandemic and darkest days of 2020, Americans proved their benevolence and generosity in ways the government never could.Two-thousand and twenty is a year most Americans are in a hurry to forget. From a chaotic political atmosphere to uncontrolled riots and violence across the country, to a pandemic that revealed the worst instincts in our politicians, the year seemed to resemble a horror-house of our worst fears.Because of all we’ve been through, most people would just as soon get on with ending this year of chaos, mobs, and quarantines and get on with the business of believing...

    Black Lives Matter protesters in Wisconsin hijacked and crashed a Christmas charity event for kids with cancer. Nothing is sacred to the woke left, including Christmas or helping kids with cancer. Residents of a Milwaukee suburb hold an annual event called Candy Cane Lane to benefit childhood cancer research. Students decorate trees in a section of West Allie, Wisconsin to look like red and white candy canes to designate the route. Houses are festively lit up with lights to celebrate the season.

    What Is Operation Paperback? Operation Paperback is a charity that sends books and magazines to soldiers and their families. This is invaluable for people on the front lines who can’t stream the latest video, aren’t close to a library and are nowhere near a movie theater. For their families, it is a pleasant reminder that the world hasn’t forgotten them and gives them free entertainment. Operation Paperback lets volunteers send books to the VA hospitals, too. Operation Paperback also accepts financial donations to buy books in high demand genres, specifically requested titles and pay for the shipping of these items....

    Dirty politics and dirty politicians have been around since the dawn of time, or at least since the dawn of civilization. But rarely do we find blood suckers willing to push vile to a whole new level. Sadly, this is the case, and the guilty party is none other than the self-professed president elect, Joe Biden. And, to add insult to injury, this supposed-to-be humanitarian allowed cancer to be exploited while the dollar signs continued to be Biden’s sole driving force. But don’t take my word for it, check out the federal tax records and see for yourself. Then go...

  • Better Than Charity

    Many of us will give money to charity this month. Americans give more than any other people in the world. Good for us. 56 years ago, because American charities hadn't ended poverty, politicians said they would end it. They declared a "war on poverty." That "war," so far, has cost $27 trillion. Some people were helped. But the handouts also had a bad effect. My new video shows a moving graph of America's poverty rate. It reveals that before the War on Poverty began, Americans had been steadily lifting themselves out of poverty. Year by year, the number of families...

    Hollywood’s “Time’s Up” organization, set up to fight sexual harassment — with Reese Witherspoon, Amy Schumer, Brie Larson and other luminaries on its board — spent the bulk of its donations on executive salaries and only a fraction on legal costs to help victims, public records show. The organization, which is comprised of the Time’s Up Foundation and Time’s Up Now Inc., raised $3,670,219 in 2018, its founding year, but spent $1,407,032 on salaries and only $312,001 on the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund for people who have experienced sexual harassment. Charity watchdog groups such as Charity Navigator recommend that...

    While many presidential Thanksgiving proclamations are worth revisiting in 2020, President Grover Cleveland’s 1888 proclamation is especially resonant.American presidents have declared Thanksgiving proclamations more than 165 times since President George Washington delivered the first in 1789. Although none were given between 1816 and 1862, presidential Thanksgiving proclamations became a tradition on October 3, 1863, when President Abraham Lincoln established Thanksgiving as a national holiday. Since then, various presidents have used such executive statements as reminders to offer thanks to God and rest from toil, to offer solace, and to help reorient the focus of the nation to the good, the...

    The Salvation Army's bell ringers, a longtime fixture outside malls and stores around the U.S., are a staple holiday tradition. But this year, with the coronavirus pandemic raging and many stores closed, people won't be hearing as many of those bells ringing. The charitable organization relies on its red-kettle campaign's donations to raise enough money to help millions of Americans around the holidays. That's especially true this year, with so many people out of work and suffering financially. So with store traffic — and red-kettle donations — down, the charity is turning to technology and its enthusiastic volunteers to keep...

    The Rev. Franklin Graham reacted to a Kansas middle school’s decision to sever ties with his charity project, Operation Christmas Child, and expressed doubt that “our country will ever come together.”“We don’t solicit necessarily from schools,” Graham, president of Samaritan’s Purse, said on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle” Friday. “Anybody can participate and what this is, this is just children there at the school that did this on their own and got their school involved." The atheist group Freedom From Religion Foundation had sent a complaint letter dated Nov. 3, to Superintendent Tony Helfrich, urging the district to take "immediate...

    Singer John Legend said on Thursday that donating to Democratic candidates hoping to flip the U.S. Senate is more important than giving to the needy. "The bottom line is that the Senate flipping would be far more impactful than a food bank donation," Legend tweeted in reply to liberal billionaire Mark Cuban. "We need massive stimulus and aid to individuals and small businesses. Government needs to do this. Charity isn’t sufficient." Democrats are looking to funnel a massive amount of money from deep-pocketed, out-of-state donors into the runoff races in Georgia as part of a last-gasp bid to flip the...

    A cancer charity started by Joe Biden gave out no money to research, and spent most of its contributions on staff salaries, federal filings show. The Biden Cancer Initiative was founded in 2017 by the former vice president and his wife Jill Biden to help find “solutions to accelerate progress in cancer prevention” and help find a cure, but gave out no grants in its first two years, and spent millions on the salaries of former Washington DC aides it hired. The charity took in $4,809,619 in contributions in fiscal years 2017 and 2018, and spent $3,070,301 on payroll in...
