    Fox News host Pete Hegseth has decided to put his Masters of Public Policy diploma from Harvard University in an envelope marked “return to sender.” In his new book American Crusade, the highly decorated Iraq and Afghanistan veteran tells his alma mater “Thank you for the ‘education,' but I can no longer support your leftist cause” and encourages others to do the same.He’s not the only one suffering from what I call “educational remorse.” Some time ago, cartoonist Scott Adams of “Dilbert” fame blogged that he would stop donating to UC-Berkeley.At the time, Mr. Adams stated “…I’m ending my support...

    Black Lives Matter bought a swanky Southern California home for nearly $6 million using donation cash, according to a report Monday. Three leaders of the social justice movement – Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza and Melina Abdullah – recorded a video last June outside of the “secretly bought” home while marking the one-year anniversary of George Floyd’s murder, New York magazine reported. Cullors at the time said she was weeks removed from being in “survival mode” after The Post’s exclusive reporting in April revealed her purchase of four high-end US homes for $3.2 million.

    A Russian oligarch has been charged with allegedly paying $1 million to Rudy Giuliani associates Igor Fruman and Lev Parnas as part of a scheme to influence the 2018 US elections through illegal straw donations, prosecutors announced Monday. Andrey Muraviev, 47, was charged with conspiring with Fruman, Parnas and Andrey Kukushkin to pay US politicians illegal donations in order to help them secure licenses to start a legal marijuana business.

    A Dallas billionaire is suing Beto O'Rourke for defamation over O'Rourke's criticism of his chief political opponent, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, and energy companies who made money during a deadly 2021 winter storm - and then made campaign contributions after. The lawsuit, filed Feb. 22, claims the Democratic candidate for governor "intentionally, repeatedly, and widely disseminated his deliberate and defamatory falsehoods" in speeches, interviews and on social media to "publicly humiliate" Energy Transfer CEO Kelcy Warren. **SNIP** The suit cites a tweet O'Rourke posted Dec. 30, 2021 - which mentions the CEO and his donation while accusing Abbott of letting...

    Business leaders are clearly not buying the continuing narrative from many political leaders that efforts to overturn American democracy after the last election were “legitimate political discourse.” Newly released Federal Election Commission filings this month, now encompassing the entirety of 2021, show that all 93 of the incumbent members of Congress who failed in their constitutional duties to confirm the certified ballots of the Electoral College have suffered a major plunge in business support. We’ve seen a resurgence of whining from cynical media about companies that let expire last year’s pledges to halt donations to these “objectors” in Congress. But...

    “Canada has absolutely ZERO jurisdiction over how we manage our funds here at GiveSendGo. All funds for EVERY campaign on GiveSendGo flow directly to the recipients of those campaigns, not least of which is The Freedom Convoy campaign.”The crowdfunding platform “GoFundMe” has sparked outrage in recent weeks after twice pausing donations to the Canadian Freedom Convoy before deciding they would shut the group’s donation page down altogether at the $10 million mark due to alleged “terms of service” violations.Further angering supporters of the convoy, which is protesting oppressive Wuhan virus vaccine mandates, was GoFundMe’s initial decision to seize the donations...

    The Ford government has gone to court to freeze the funds of the Freedom Convoy, according to the Toronto Sun's Brian Lilley. The order was issued by the court today and all funds are frozen until further notice. It is worth noting that the funds have been frozen, not seized. According to a statement: "Today, the Attorney General brought an application in the Superior Court of Justice for an order pursuant to section 490.8 of the Criminal Code prohibiting any person from disposing of, or otherwise dealing with, in any manner whatsoever, any and all monetary donations made through the...

    The crowd sourced GoFundMe platform said Saturday it will automatically refund what is left of the estimated $10 million raised for the Canadian trucker convoy protesting COVID-19 vaccine mandates after Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis and others threatened a fraud investigation into the operation. "The update we issued earlier enabled all donors to get a refund and outlined a plan to distribute remaining funds to verified charities selected by the Freedom Convoy organizers. However, due to donor feedback, we are simplifying the process and automatically refunding donations," the organization posted to Twitter early Saturday.

    I am seriously considering donating a 1999 30 ft travel trailer to a San Diego area 501C3 program for disabled veterans. Any advice out there on pitfalls or things to look out for? The two strongest candidate agencies claim they will pick it up and do all the paperwork. I would really like to give the proceeds to Fisher House but can't seem to find an specific pathway for that.

    Community “charity” fundraising company GoFundMe demonstrated they’re woke and fascist at the same time by canceling the Freedom Convoy campaign and promising to send the $9+ million raised to “approved charities.” Now, they’re scrambling to fix the PR nightmare that ensued by moving to refund all donations. The company had hoped that by dropping the news late on a Friday that they’d avoid some of the backlash. But it was quickly seized by conservatives across social media as an example of the totalitarian nature of the left. We didn’t let them oppose freedom without voicing our opinions and pushing to...

    CharityWatch Executive Director Laurie Styron commented to New York magazine about Black Lives Matter’s $60 million in cash left over from fundraising in 2020, saying BLM was like a “giant ghost ship full of treasure drifting in the night with no captain, no discernible crew, and no clear direction.”Indeed, no one — including any of the so-called “leaders” at Black Lives Matter — knows who’s in charge of that $90 million is an impressive total. But according to multiple media reports, two-thirds of it—$60 million—remain unspent. What was spent, and how it was spent, also raises serious questions. And...
  • Biden Touts ‘Biden Cancer Initiative,’ Which Closed After Spending on Salaries, Nothing on Research

    President Joe Biden touted his past support for an organization called the Biden Cancer Initiative on Wednesday, as he announced a “Moonshot” on cancer research — but ignored its scandal-plagued history, which arose in the 2020 campaign. As the New York Post reported in 2020, the organization — which Biden opened after leaving office in 2017, but closed just two yeas later — spent no money on cancer research, but spent millions of dollars of donors’ money on staff salaries. The Washington Free Beacon had reported earlier in 2020 that the Biden Cancer Initiative spent 65 percent of its total...

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), who helped block sanctions on Russia’s Nord Stream 2 project, received campaign donations from corporate PACs affiliated with two of the European companies that helped fund the pipeline, according to a report from the Washington Free Beacon. The corporate political action committees of ENGIE North America and BASF Corporation, two affiliates of European companies that are associated with the funding for Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline, gave $2,500 campaign contributions to Schumer’s campaign in September, according to records with the Federal Election Commission (FEC), the report stated.

    After private negotiations to control political donations broke down, labor unions have filed three dueling campaign finance initiative petitions for the 2022 ballot that are far looser than measures already proposed by good government groups. While the two camps agree that political money needs to be controlled in Oregon, one of five states with no caps on campaign donations, they have unresolved differences. The union proposals, submitted to Oregon Secretary of State Shemia Fagan last week, would still allow unions and other member-based organizations to make large donations to political campaigns. OPB first reported the proposals’ submission.

    The Salvation Army is hosting a two-day racial justice forum in Illinois in an effort to "help alleviate the pain of suffering humanity within our communities and institutions" after the organization sparked controversy last month with a racism guide that it has since retracted. The Young Adult Racial Justice Forum, hosted by the Salvation Army Metropolitan Division, will take place in Hoffman Estates near Chicago on Jan. 8-Jan. 9 and will feature theologian and activist Esau McCaulley as a guest speaker. "We believe racial justice is an urgent issue close to the heart of God," the event description states, "and...

    The North Carolina Senate passed a bill that proposes to ban private funding of state and county election boards.The push for Senate Bill 724, also known as “Zuck Bucks,” came from what some have described as a record amount of private funds flooding into the 2020 election.If the bill is not signed or vetoed after ten days of reaching Gov. Roy Cooper’s desk it becomes law.Among those private organizations donating funds to local election boards was the Chicago nonprofit Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL).Before the 2020 election, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, put $350...
