    Education Dept. investigation has already found $6.5 billion in unreported gifts Top universities are already lobbying the incoming Biden administration to reverse a Trump-administration policy that required colleges to fully disclose foreign donations and halt investigations into alleged violations. The American Council on Education (ACE), a lobbying group led by former Obama-administration official Ted Mitchell, is asking President-elect Joe Biden to "halt expanded reporting requirements" for contracts and foreign donations to universities. ACE represents nearly all of the major universities in the country, including top Democratic donors such as Harvard University, Stanford University, and the University of California system. The...

    The Vatican's most powerful office has been stripped of its financial assets after dubious investments squandered millions in church donations. But, the fallout of this scandal is not the only crisis that the Pope must deal with. Palki Sharma tells you more.

    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...

    Just donated and I see that CA is ahead by a large margin in donations! As a proud CA conservative, this is good but I am dismayed at the rest of the States that are not giving. Seems like CA always gets a bad vibe on FR. Give just $5 if you can. God bless all Freepers!

    Perhaps there is something few have thought about. First, it is obvious that there was massive cheating in this election. As I have posted before: 1. A friend took his family on a 48 state tour just prior to the election. He said he saw almost NO Biden signs on the entire trip, not on lawns, not on cars. That indicates very little public support across the entire nation. 2. The Democrats went ballastic on Amy Coney Barrett's nomination and she had impeccable credentials. They expected this election to end up being contested in the Supreme Court. Why? 3. The...

    The presidential campaign of former Vice President Joe Biden raised a record $383 million for the month of September -- topping the Trump campaign's haul by $135 million. Biden's campaign announced the giant figure late Wednesday, which surpassed even the $364 million it raised in August -- which had also set a record for the most money ever raised by a candidate in a single month. "To every person who chipped in a few dollars last month -- thank you," Biden tweeted. "I'm incredibly humbled." Re-election communications director Tim Murtaugh tweeted Thursday that President Donald Trump's campaign raised $248 million...

    This election could be close, and as such, resources will be very, very important to candidates across the country. Unfortunately, when there is an important and close election, that not only leads to ridiculous fundraising emails from campaigns (Lord knows there are enough of those from all sides), it also brings out the grifters – opportunists who rip off an unsuspecting public under the guise of helping a candidate or cause. Don’t fall for it. If you want to help a candidate, and have the money to do so, give directly to that candidate or that candidate’s party. If you...
  • Millions of donations from ‘unemployed’ to liberal causes spark accusations of foreign influence

    Almost half of the donations received by ActBlue, a massive liberal fundraising platform, in 2019 were from “unemployed” donors. “Our biggest concern is foreign money. Do you really believe that half of the people who are giving money through ActBlue don’t have a job?” John Pudner, the president of Take Back Action Fund, which conducted the research, told the Washington Times. “To me, that just seems absurd.” The conservative nonprofit analyzed data from the Federal Elections Commission and found that 48.4% of donations last year were from the unemployed, Fox News reported. "After downloading hundreds of millions of [dollars in]...

    Several companies have been bragging recently that they’re providing financial support to the official Black Lives Matter organization to burnish their PR image. No doubt they’re getting Woke points for doing so. But do the executives at those companies have any idea how radical this group is and what it’s trying to achieve? The Daily Signal reported earlier this week that at least 18 corporations have pledged hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation. The list includes: DoorDash, Deckers, Amazon, Gatorade, Microsoft, Glossier, 23andMe, AirBnB, Unilever, Bungie, Nabisco, Dropbox, Fitbit, Developer Digital, Skillshare, Square...

    We reported on May 30th the recent riots in Democrat-led cities around the country were coordinated and related to three main groups: 1) US based Islamist Organizations, 2) Domestic terrorists, and 3) Others related to the Democrat Party. Today we uncover a fourth major contributor, a Clinton pardoned member of the Weather Underground, Susan Rosenberg. There clearly was no reason for the mass riots taking place around the country after the death of the individual at the hands of the police in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Everyone who saw the police brutality was appalled and outraged at the sight of the policeman...

Scott Wiener tweeted Thursday that he would not accept any contributions to his reelection campaign from law enforcement unions and would donate those he's gotten so far to nonprofits "serving at-risk youth of color" -- but his opponent, also a Democrat, replied that his commitment was not enough and included "loopholes."

The groups include the California Association of Highway Patrolmen, Peace Officers Research Association of California PAC, California Correctional Peace Officers Association PAC, California Statewide Law Enforcement Association, Association...

    A probe by the Department of Education into colleges that accept foreign investments and donations has uncovered $6 billion in previously unreported foreign donations from US adversaries including China and Russia. House Republicans were monitoring the investigation into the schools to determine if they were violating Section 117 of the Higher Education Act of 1965, which prohibits an “Institution of Higher Learning” from failing to properly report foreign gifts of $250,000 or more. In a letter from the department, general counsel Reed Rubinstein said that while some colleges recognized that foreign cash from US adversaries could pose a security risk,...
