  • Trump is done, finished, kaput as megadonors bail in droves [WashTimes]

    Donors just didn’t want to back a loser — and that’s just what Mr. Trump is now — a loser. “Hedge fund manager Ken Griffin, the second-most prolific GOP donor of the midterms, said Tuesday that he would support [Florida Gov. Ron] DeSantis over Trump, pointing to the Florida governor’s dominant reelection victory in a state that was considered competitive until recently,” The Hill reported this week. “I’d like to think that the Republican Party is ready to move on from somebody who has been for this party a three-time loser,” said Mr. Griffin, who funded a pro-Trump super political...

    Anti-vaxxers are trying to create a new global infrastructure for the supply of unvaccinated blood, driven by conspiracy theories and pseudoscientific beliefs about the dangers of mRNA COVID vaccines. The article goes on and on about how unscientific and ignorant is the demand for unvaccinated blood. What is interesting is that even doctors acknowledge a lot of demand for it:

    Retired four-star Marine Gen. John Allen, is on administrative leave from his role as president of the Brookings Institute D.C. think tank after the FBI seized his electronic data on suspicion of lying to investigators and withholding evidence about his role in secretly lobbying for the government of Qatar. As a general, he commanded all U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan in the Obama administration. The court records, which were unsealed Tuesday, are the latest public evidence showing the FBI and Justice Department are conducting a large-scale investigation into the stateside influence of wealthy Arab nations including Qatar, Saudi Arabia...
  • Major corporate donors silent on Black Lives Matter's alleged self-dealing

    Washington Examiner ^ | 6/03/22 | Andrew Kerr
    Major corporations that made a show out of cutting checks to the national Black Lives Matter group in the aftermath of George Floyd's police killing in May 2020 now have nothing to say about the charity's alleged self-dealing. Seventeen corporations that publicly committed at least $100,000 to Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation in the days following Floyd's killing either declined to comment or did not respond to inquiries from the Washington Examiner asking if they approved of the charity's use of their donations to purchase a $6 million mansion in Los Angeles secretly and award lucrative contracts to the...

    Two hundred fifty Republican donors ran an ad in the Dallas Morning News on Sunday stating their support for Sen. John Cornyn’s (R-TX) gun control efforts. Breitbart News reported on May 27 that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) tapped Sen. Cornyn to work with Democrats to achieve “bipartisan” gun control.

    The Washington Post continued its idiotic comparison of Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) to the self-proclaimed white supremacist Buffalo, New York, mass shooter in an attempt to publicly shame her donors. The liberal rag’s hit piece was headlined: “Stefanik echoed ‘great replacement’ theory. But firms kept donating.” The story was apparently so crucial to the newspaper that it took two authors, Post enterprise reporter Todd Frankel and Post senior software engineer Dylan Freedman, to blast 22 companies like investment bank UBS, Home Depot and General Motors for donating to a Republican the authors claimed echoed the racist “great replacement theory” views...

There were 23 companies that donated to Buttigieg’s mayoral political action committee who were later awarded millions in city contracts. Between the companies, their executives, and spouses, $253,750 were donated, resulting in at least $33,280,426 worth of contracts between 2011 and 2019.

    Locations of the Freedom Convoy donors in Ontario, Canada, have been published on Google Maps after names of those who gave money to the crowdfunding platform GiveSendGo were leaked online. The Google link contains thousands of pins pointing to locations of donors, each pin listing their names, donor ID, email address, and the amount they donated, including those as low as $10. Who published the donors and how the list was obtained from GiveSendGo still remains unknown. Last week, the Christian crowdfunding platform GiveSendGo had its data reportedly hacked to reveal the names of donors supporting the truckers protesting the...

    The “modern Republican” Party is scrapping its old-guard corporate ties and business special interests, an Axios report details, as Breitbart News and small-dollar donors to former President Trump steer the party’s future. Fourteen of the top GOP consultants and operatives detail how the Republican Party has shifted away from the Chamber of Commerce, the Koch brothers’ network of donor class organizations, National Review, and economic libertarian groups toward Trump’s small-dollar donors, populist-nationalist outlets like Breitbart News, and Tucker Carlson. These days, it is Trump’s voters, Breitbart News readers, and Carlson viewers that Republicans hope to win over in elections rather...

    GEORGE NADER, an American adviser to the government of the United Arab Emirates, convicted sex offender, and frequent visitor to the White House during President Donald Trump’s first year in office, has pleaded guilty for his role in helping the UAE pump millions of dollars in illegal campaign contributions into the U.S. political system during the 2016 presidential election, according to documents submitted in federal court last month. Federal prosecutors disclosed in a December sentencing memo that Nader had agreed months earlier to plead guilty to a single count of felony conspiracy to defraud the U.S. government by funneling millions...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Kamala Harris will announce Monday that the Biden administration is investing $1.5 billion from the coronavirus aid package to address the health care worker shortage in underserved communities. The funding will go to the National Health Service Corps, Nurse Corps and Substance Use Disorder Treatment and Recovery programs, all federal programs that offer scholarship and loan repayments for health care students and workers if they pledge to work in underserved and high-risk communities. The money, which includes funds from the American Rescue Plan and other sources, will support more than 22,700 providers. The COVID-19 pandemic...

    There was a peculiar moment during a news segment last fall, at the height of the Ebola scare in the United States, between the nation’s two most recognizable medical figures. Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s household-name medical correspondent, was standing next to Thomas Frieden, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in front of CDC headquarters in Atlanta on October 1. Frieden assures Gupta that if one of them had Ebola, the other would be at no risk of infection: “It’s not like the flu, not like the common cold. It requires direct physical contact.” A CNN anchor interjects:...

    The U.S. Supreme Court handed a stunning defeat to the enemies of the First Amendment by invalidating a California law forcing nonprofits to disclose their largest donors — and liberals are losing it. Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the opinion of the Court in Americans for Prosperity Foundation v. Bonta, Attorney General of California. The syllabus for the opinion reasoned that “California’s disclosure requirement imposes a widespread burden on donors’ associational rights.” It continued: “[T]his burden cannot be justified on the ground that the regime is narrowly tailored to investigating charitable wrongdoing, or that the State’s interest in administrative convenience...

    The Hunter Biden conundrum. Under the soft scrutiny of the media. Hunter Biden has been allowed to walk away as the intermediary for his family's pay to play scheme that violates the oval office and jeopardizes national security.

Of course, Hunter's resume of zero experience continues to land him the big money from the big guy. As Hunter has zero experience as a painter. Just how stupid does the Biden crime family...

    Lindsey Graham is trying to introduce Nikki Haley to big political donors and it’s not going well. The ambitious former ambassador the United Nations released a calculated break from President Trump the same day his defense begins in the sham impeachment trial. The problem: Haley is as unpopular among donors as she is among Republican voters. “Lindsey Graham is making this pitch for Nikki Haley and he’s calling around to people to ask if they will meet with her,” said Richard Baris, director of Big Data Poll. “These donors are angry and they do not want to sit down with...

    President Joe Biden will continue his strategy Tuesday of making a public display of his focus on the coronavirus – rather than the historic impeachment trial set to consume political Washington. The second impeachment of President Donald Trump on a charge of 'incitement of insurrection' begins in earnest Tuesday, as Democratic managers clash with the president's team over whether it is constitutional to try a former president. Biden, though, will be publicly showing his determination to boost the economy despite the pandemic that continues to ravage the nation. He will be joined by business leaders and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen,...

    Newly filed lobbying records show Venezuela’s socialist government previously hired a longtime Democratic Party donor for $6 million at the same time it was lobbying to discourage the U.S. from imposing sanctions on the oil-rich nation. The documents, which were disclosed Thursday, show a U.S. subsidiary of Venezuela’s state oil giant PDVSA agreed to hire Marcia Wiss’ Washington law firm in March 2017. That’s the same month it signed a consulting deal for $50 million with scandal-tainted former Congressman David Rivera. Wiss, an international trade lawyer with a history of donations to the Democratic Party, including a $1,500 contribution to...
