    LANSING — Three weeks before Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed last year’s state budget with a $5 million grant for an undefined Mount Clemens housing project, city commissioners held a special session to award the money to a company controlled by local developer Jim George. In the months leading up to the vote, he had become a prolific political donor. George’s company provided the agreement to Mount Clemens officials. He would buy a disused property on the edge of downtown, demolish the notorious, condemned hotel that stood on it and build apartments in its place. Developer Jim George had requested...

    Trump raised more than $50 million in 24 hours after his show trial conviction. But it means nothing if it’s not spent turning out voters.Former President Donald Trump and the RNC raised more than $50 million within 24 hours after the left-wing, Soros-funded Manhattan district attorney used lawfare to secure a conviction against the former president. But the money means nothing if it’s not spent turning out voters.The Trump campaign “together with the RNC” said they brought in $141 million in donations for the month of May. Of that total, more than $50 million was brought in within 24 hours...

    In the past 72 hours, the Trump campaign has received $200M dollars in donations. $70M has been from small donors. $150M is from Miriam Adelson, wife of deceased casino magnate Sheldon Adelson. 30% of the small donor donations are from first-time donors.

    One show trial down, three more to go. You have every reason to spend the next five months anticipating anything and everything to keep voters from installing Donald Trump back in the White House through a process formerly known in America as a “free and fair election.”Up to and including assassinating the candidate whom every indicator has winning in November.For the first time in our country’s history a former president, who is running for reelection, was just convicted of a crime in what prosecutor Alvin Bragg’s hometown newspaper admitted is a “novel and untested” application of an obscure state law....

    How to donate to POTUS Trump ONLY? NOT Winred, as they fund GOP candidates in general (it’s on their website). I have spent the better part of an hour attempting to find a page where I can donate DIRECTLY to Donald J. Trump’s campaign without luck. Search engines: BRAVE, DUCKDUCKGO and they STILL list mainly leftist websites as top search returns. WTAF? Thanks. NB

    Right before Election Day, Biden finally released the names of his ‘bundlers’: the big money fundraisers who backed his 2020 campaign. The David Horowitz Freedom Center’s investigative arm did some last minute sleuthing and found some interesting names on that list.One of them was ‘Muhammad’ Tahir Javed: a Biden surrogate, Democratic National Committee deputy finance chair, and future Pakistani cabinet member.Javed bragged that he had “raised over $2M for the Biden Harris transition team” and “recruited 30+ donors to the transition team and general campaign, four of whom were recognized along with myself… to have raised over $100,000 personally.” These...

    I’m not a fan of the New England Patriots or any Boston-based team, but I do support this move by its owner, Robert Kraft, who is paying attention to the antisemitic and pro-terrorist shenanigans happening at Columbia University, his alma mater. The students are taking over, with the campus reverting to an old Ivy League tradition: hating Jewish people. As the faculty have now joined the students, Mr. Kraft said that he’s no longer going to donate to the school (via CBS News): Patriots owner Robert Kraft says he will no longer donate to Columbia University until the school protects...
  • Guess Who Also Used Campaign Donations to Pay His Legal Bills?

    PJ Media ^ | 04/12/2024 | Matt Margolis
    Donald Trump's using campaign donations to cover legal bills has become a hot topic in the media as they seek to undermine his campaign. However, he's not the only presidential candidate who has used campaign donations to cover legal expenses. According to a new report from Axios, Joe Biden similarly utilized campaign donations to pay his legal expenses last year during the special counsel investigation into his mishandling of classified documents. Axios spoke with two sources familiar with the situation and conducted its own review of campaign finance documents to corroborate this.This is a rather significant revelation because, as the...

    American Thinker ^ | 04/02/2024 | Andrea Widburg
    While Trump was attending Officer Jonathan Diller’s funeral, Joe Biden was at a ritzy fundraiser where people paid up to $500,000 for a seat, and Biden’s campaign raked in $26 million. That’s a huge haul for a single fundraiser. Indeed, Biden has a great deal more money than Trump, who’s also been seeing his money sucked away by the Democrats’ despotic lawfare. But sometimes things aren’t what they seem. The reality is that almost half of Biden’s money comes from a small group of elite leftist donors, while Trump is getting most of his money from huge numbers of voters.Fox...

  • ‘Blood Money’: Meet Adam Schiff, Who Looks Away from the Deadly Fentanyl Crisis in His Backyard While Taking Donations from Money Laundering Operators Tied to the Drug Trade

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), who has been strikingly absent from the national fentanyl conversation, has “financial connections to individuals involved with criminal networks in Southern California, many of whom are tied to money laundering and the drug trade,” according to Peter Schweizer’s new book Blood Money: Why the Powerful Turn a Blind Eye While China Kills Americans. In Blood Money, Schweizer highlights Schiff’s astonishingly empty record regarding the fentanyl crisis before suggesting that the congressman could potentially risk “undue attention to his own financial” ties if he were to address the issue meaningfully.

    Former President Donald Trump’s campaign slammed two draft resolutions *** The first resolution would mandate the RNC remain neutral in the nominating contest until he secures the necessary 1,215 delegates, while the second would ensure the party doesn’t foot his legal bills.“The primary is over and it is the RNC’s sole responsibility to defeat Joe Biden and win back the White House,” senior Trump campaign adviser Chris LaCivita said in a statement. *** Trump is also pushing for his daughter-in-law Lara Trump to serve as party co-chair, and North Carolina GOP Chair Michael Whatley to replace Ronna McDaniel as the...

    The biggest individual contributions to Donald Trump's and Robert F. Kennedy Jr's 2024 presidential Super PACs in January both came from the same longtime Republican mega-donor, according to filings. Timothy Mellon, heir to the Mellon banking fortune, donated $5 million to the Trump-aligned MAGA Inc. fundraising attempts in January, as well $5 million to a Super PAC supporting the Democrat-turned-independent's presidential bid the same month, Federal Election Commission (FEC) listings reveal. Mellon, the grandson of former U.S. treasury secretary Andrew Mellon, is known to be a longtime donor to Republicans such as Trump. He gave $20 million to the Trump-aligned...

According to Federal Election Commission data, he is the only person who lists his employer as a college or university in the United States who made a contribution of $1,000 or more to Donald Trump's presidential campaign so far in the 2024 election cycle. Such donors are a dime a dozen for President Joe Biden. There are 289, in fact, according to the FEC. Biden has more higher ed support at the University of California alone, than Trump has in the whole country. And Biden's support comes from schools that will tell...

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | June 13, 2023 | Robert Schmad
    Nearly 100 percent of political donations from self-identified fact checkers—including those whose employers claim journalistic neutrality—go to Democrats, a Washington Free Beacon analysis of federal campaign finance disclosures found. The Free Beacon reviewed political donations over the past four election cycles from those who identified their occupation as "fact checker." $22,580 of the $22,683 in political donations that came from self-identified fact checkers during that time—a whopping 99.5 percent—went to Democrats and liberal groups. Only three of the fact checker donations made during that period went to Republicans. Top recipients include socialist Vermont senator Bernie Sanders, who during the seven-year...

He was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II for his philanthropy work in 2017. He is also Jewish. When his family emigrated to the United States in 1978, he studied engineering at Columbia University, later graduating from Harvard Business School. He went on to be fabulously successful and Forbes this year estimated his net worth at $29.6 billion. He has also been one of Harvard’s most generous donors. But now, as with many other vastly wealthy alumni, Blavatnik...

Reports say Soros and his son, Alex, initially donated modest amounts to the campaign in the second quarter of 2023. Each gave $6,600, the maximum figure allowed, according to a Western Journal article published Saturday.

    While acknowledging that he shouldn’t “complain too much”, Volodymyr Zelensky has again expressed his displeasure with the volume of Western weapons flowing into his country. There are not enough weapons in Ukraine and this has been a contributing factor to the failure of the so-called Spring Offensive, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has said. Noting the lack of supplies and the war in Israel that has contributed to some of those supplies he hoped for not arriving, Zelensky, nevertheless told the Associated Press in an interview that he had a plan to overcome his nation’s supply problems.
