    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. And now suddenly Hunter Biden is selling abstract paintings for $500,000 a piece to unknown nefarious donors and those donors will remain confidential. Something smells rotten in Denmark. 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...

    Jane Mayer of The New Yorker strengthens the argument for why H.R. 1 is an awful piece of legislation.In attempting to own conservatives by leaking partial audio of a presentation to Republicans by the director of research at a conservative nonprofit, staff writer Jane Mayer at The New Yorker further illuminates why H.R. 1 is a garbage proposal. Mayer misunderstands the Republican base’s argument completely and produces a straw man.The March 29 report is based on audio from a Jan. 8 phone call in which Kyle McKenzie of Stand Together discusses the “For The People Act,” known as H.R. 1....

    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...

    Daily Mail ^ | Feb 9 | By GEOFF EARLE,
    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,...
  • Venezuela hired Democratic Party donor for $6 million

    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...

    Private donors who’ve contributed millions of dollars to the Black Lives Matter organization have come foreword to ask, where did all the money go? And, while the answer remains unknown, we know for sure that the money isn’t going to the supposed victims BLM claims to fight for, and now the donors and local chapters are getting pissed. The far-left organization went from being a group that most Americans rejected into one of the most beloved brands of the Democratic Party. ... BLM became so powerful that it could turn hundreds of thousands of “mostly peaceful protesters” out into the...

    Rep. Eric Swalwell is famous for yelling about Russian influence with outrageous claims against President Trump, even calling for a 'presidential crimes commission,' but based on a year-long investigation from Axios, he's the one who has some spy problems, and they ought to be embarrassing. He was China's idea of the perfect fool.According to a year-long investigation from Axios:A suspected Chinese intelligence operative developed extensive ties with local and national politicians, including a U.S. congressman, in what U.S. officials believe was a political intelligence operation run by China’s main civilian spy agency between 2011 and 2015, Axios found in a...

    California donors from Silicon Valley, Hollywood, and businesses are helping Democratic Senate candidates to swamp GOP campaigns, according to a report by the Los Angeles Times. “Between June 1 and September 30, Democratic Senate candidates raised $386 million and GOP candidates raised $154 million, with [South Carolina’s Jamie] Harrison raising the most of any Senate candidate [$57 million] in a three-month period ever, according to fundraising disclosures filed with the Federal Election Commission on Thursday,” said the October 17 report. “Much of the money flowed from California’s large number of political contributors,” the newspaper reported.

    (CNN)President Donald Trump's big-dollar fundraiser at his New Jersey golf club went on as planned Thursday night despite the President and staff knowing he had been exposed to coronavirus. Trump attended three events at the fundraiser: an indoor roundtable, an indoor VIP reception -- donors had a socially distant photo opportunity with him -- and an outdoor reception, according to an event invitation obtained by CNN. Donors that gave $250,000 were able to participate in a roundtable, photo opportunity and reception with the President, according to the event invite. The roundtable included 18 donors, according to a source, and was...
  • Who Are These 'Unemployed' Donors Contributing Nearly Half of Democrat Group ActBlue's Massive Campaign Funds?

    PJ Media ^ | 09/13/2020 | Rick Moran
    The fundraising group ActBlue is the most successful leftwing money group in the country. In 2019, they raised more than $467 million from 3.7 million donors. But there are questions where a lot of that money comes from. More than 40 percent of the cash came from donors who said they were “unemployed.” Federal law requires that political donors disclose the name of their employer in giving money. By contrast, a GOP group called WinRed raised $301.8 million in 2019 but only 5 percent of the donors were unemployed.Take Back Action Fund, a conservative group, examined the ActBlue fundraising figures....

    Former President Barack Obama is privately telling some of the biggest and most influential donors on the left that the 2020 election will not be a lock for former Vice President Joe Biden because President Donald Trump’s voters are “glued” to outlets on the right like Breitbart News and will turn out in droves in November, according to a Thursday report in the New York Times. Obama has reportedly raised $24 million for Biden in two months by having conversations with people like LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman, actor George Clooney, and top party leaders. According to the Times, “donors who...

    Houston City Councilwoman Abbie Kamin (D) echoes any other left-wing scamp in rebuking the Texas GOP, but she showed unusual brass last week prodding her Twitter followers to phone and badger the party’s supporters. “TX GOP/SREC pulled down the sponsor list for their State Convention that they insist be IN-PERSON in #Houston during a dangerous #COVID surge + increasingly limited ICU capacity,” began Kamin’s tweetstorm last Tuesday. “Here’s the list of elected official & corporate sponsors. Feel free to call them.” Her flunkies doubtless obliged. A day later, the gentlelady from District C heralded Union Pacific’s withdrawal as a convention...

    Multiple liberal outlets fumed at how conservative donors have funded groups who have supported lockdown protests across the country. But they avoided reporting how the left is outspending the right in this election cycle to outside groups by over $100 million. Records reveal that all top liberal donors listed by Open Secrets (59) spent a whopping $191,827,021 combined so far on liberal groups. To contrast, all the top conservative donors listed by Open Secrets (44) only spent $87,767,208 combined on conservative groups. That’s a $104,059,813 disparity. It’s not even close.

    It wasn’t until August 8th, 2019, months into the unofficial start of the Democratic presidential primary, that Naomi Zikmund-Fisher threw her money behind Elizabeth Warren. The 49-year-old social worker from Superior Township, Mich., had supported Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in the 2016 primary. But in Warren, she saw something different: a candidate who had translated Sanders’ progressive talking points into tangible policies, and one who might actually win. She deposited $2,800 – the maximum donation an individual can give a candidate during a primary – into Warren’s campaign. “I thought she had a good chance,” Zikmund-Fisher says. “I gave to...

    Many supporters of President Donald Trump are celebrating new fundraising figures from California – figures that show him outpacing any single democrat, although he has not raised more than the total amount that Democrats have. The new figures are significant because they’re from so-called “small amount donors,” supporters who gave $200 or less. The figures also show that he has raised much more money than any of his Democratic rivals in what’s usually a democratic state – but the numbers also show that he’s benefiting from being the only viable Republican in the race. Between July and September Trump has...
