    Billionaire Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates said Wednesday that he plans to give his wealth to his foundation. In a Twitter thread that doesn’t allow replies, Gates announced he was transferring $20 billion to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s endowment this month and will increase spending to $9 billion per year by 2026. “As I look to the future, I plan to give virtually all of my wealth to the foundation,” Gates wrote. “I will move down and eventually off of the list of the world’s richest people.” Gates is currently the fourth-richest person on earth and has a net...

    The billionaire French Gates wrote in her open letter: ‘The ultimate goal of any philanthropist should be to render the need for philanthropy obsolete.’Melinda French Gates, co-founder of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, will no longer be pledging the majority of her wealth to the philanthropic organization. According to the Wall Street Journal, French Gates still plans to distribute much of her fortune across philanthropic endeavors, but largely outside of the Gates Foundation, which is one of the world’s largest. “I recognize the absurdity of so much wealth being concentrated in the hands of one person, and I believe...

    Barack Obama has a big new backer: Jeff Bezos. The Amazon founder and world’s second richest man is donating a whopping $100 million to the former president’s charity, the Obama Foundation said Monday. The donation comes as Amazon seeks to fend off challenges from the Biden administration. As part of the donation, Bezos has asked that Obama rename the plaza at his controversial Chicago presidential center in honor of former Congressman and civil rights advocate John R. Lewis, according to the Obama Foundation.

Eychaner is a longtime supporter of the Clinton Foundation, Hillary Clinton’s presidential bids and Democratic causes and candidates. The dinner was a fundraiser for the Clinton Foundation, with the attendees described by a source as “old friends getting together to support President Clinton and his foundation.”

    Richard Harris, who is the president and CEO of Make A Wish Foundation, might be wishing he did not bow to the #Woke #PC #FeelingsoverFacts crowd and stayed away from any sort of political controversy. Unfortunately taking an experimental vaccine currently is political, and when you walk into that arena, dumb things are going to happen to you.The shame is that the innocent kids who are very sick are the pawns in this.So, let’s start with the basics of what is happening here, and why Harris should have a huge headache right about now.From The Blaze…“We’ve approached this responsibility with...

    Warren Buffett announced Wednesday that he’s resigning from his position as trustee at the Gates Foundation and that he’s donating another $4.1 billion worth of Berkshire Hathaway shares to five charitable organizations. In 2006, Buffett, who’s the eighth-richest person in the world with a net worth of about $105 billion, pledged most of his fortune to the Gates Foundation and to four other charitable trusts created by his family. “For years I have been a trustee — an inactive trustee at that — of only one recipient of my funds, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMG),” Buffett said in...

    Rair Foundation first broke the story by posting a video of a speech by the Dutch MP, Thierry Baudet, who refers to a 2010 Rockefeller Foundation Report that laid out the pandemic and its aftermath, that is eerily like what the world has just experienced. Baudet is a rising star in European conservative politics. Baudet said, “Even after the Pandemic is over, the researchers wrote the authoritarian control would remain with supervision of the citizens and their activities.” Here is a partial transcript of what he said, but you have to watch the whole thing for yourself:

    I have loved words since I learned to talk and read. I was reading before I entered kindergarten. According to my cousin Ricky (may he rest in peace), at 6, I was talking to him in full sentences and using words that were above my age grade. I have heard that people who are real mathematicians see colors and pictures when they do their thing with numbers. It’s that way for me with words—they dance, tell me where they need to go, and are very much like children with distinct personalities: the challenge is to get them to work in...

    Has there ever been a political group with a shakier foundation than Evangelicals for Biden?This is a real group, and it premises its support for Biden on his character and his Christian faith. Before the election, members justified their backing for this abortion-supporter this way (emphasis in original):Joe Biden is a man like any other, but his character and faith set him apart in times of crisis. That's why Evangelical Christians across the country will be voting for him in November.Joe Biden has suffered, struggled, and been humbled by life. He understands what regular Americans are facing. He has repeatedly...

    FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - The Advertising and Promotion Commission has pulled back from operations at the former home-turned-museum of Bill and Hillary Clinton in Fayetteville with plans to let the lease expire. Commissioners voted 6-0 Monday to scale back programming at the Clinton House Museum. Starting Jan. 1, the commission will pay only rent and maintenance expenses until the lease expires with the University of Arkansas on Dec. 31, 2021, according to the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. “Putting together a winding-down plan is not pleasant, it’s not how we thought we would’ve ended the year,” said Molly Rawn, chief executive officer...

    With protestors taking to the streets all over the United States to protest police brutality after the killings of unarmed Black men, the phrase "Black Lives Matter" has become synonymous with the movement. Regardless of where you find yourself on the ideological spectrum, a significant percentage of those protesting have done so peacefully, but it's the violent protestors and antifa thugs that continue to get most of the attention. The media would have it no other way; after all, who wants to watch continuous news about protestors marching peacefully. That's boring. For a news media that's become all about ratings...

    Christian ex-NFL star Tim Tebow is publicly dedicating his charitable foundation to help stop human trafficking. Tim Tebow is no stranger when it comes to charitable actions and earlier this year he helped deliver food to the families of the Navajo Nation. They were in dire need due to the COVID-19 pandemic.Tebow stated, “I don’t know if an evil that is much darker than people that are trafficked. That’s why we’re not leaving the fight, only getting deeper. And when a young girl has been trafficked over and over and over again, finally realizes that she’s valuable. Not because...
  • Don’t be upset that the Ronald Reagan Foundation dissed President Trump: Despite its name, the Foundation isn’t the organization you think it is.

    It was big news over the weekend: The Reagan Foundation was asking both President Trump and the Republican National Committee to stop using Ronald Reagan’s name in their fundraising. The Democrats and NeverTrumpers were very excited. They shouldn’t have been. The people presiding over the Reagan Foundation are a mix of NeverTrumpers and people who are part of the Bush family cabal. The Bush family and its supporters hate Trump. Their opinions about Trump’s campaign are as meaningful as the Democrat party’s views are. The Washington Post broke the story: The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute formally asked...

    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...

    The MFF has purged their site of all info related to their leadership after it was revealed that they used less than 1% of their $35m in donations for the fund's stated purpose. ... The Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF) only spent $200,000 of the roughly $35,000,000 it collected to bail out rioters arrested in Minneapolis. The MFF normally takes donations to post the bail for illegal aliens. However, their mission recently pivoted freeing those who were arrested in connection with the George Floyd riots ... This revelation has caused many outspoken progressives to turn on the MFF as the terms...

    Recently released emails appear to further show a direct connection between the Clinton Foundation and the State Department when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, including efforts to get foundation donors seats to an official lunch with Chinese President Hu Jintao. In emails dated December 2010, Clinton State Department aide Huma Abedin and then-top Clinton Foundation official Doug Band discussed potential guests for the lunch with the Chinese president — including three executives from groups that had donated millions to the foundation, according to an ABC News report late Saturday. Among the possible guests discussed were Bob McCann, then-president of...

    Starting in May 2010, The Washington Examiner reported, drawing on emails obtained by Citizens United, “Clinton Foundation staff pushed Hillary Clinton’s State Department to approve a meeting between Bill Clinton and a powerful Russian oligarch as her agency lined up investors for a project under his purview.” His name was Viktor Vekselberg of Renova (a Clinton Foundation donor) and the project under his purview was the Skolkovo Innovation Center, which is being built near Moscow. The following month, Bill Clinton would receive $500,000 for a speech in Moscow from a Renaissance Capital, a Russian investment bank with ties to the...

    Government Accountability Institute president Peter Schweizer said on Wednesday that the Clinton Foundation, founded by former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, is losing revenue due to a lack of donations. “All that money has now dried up, literally,” Schweizer told “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “The Clinton Foundation has had a hard time raising money because they don’t have the influence to sell. They don’t have power access to sell and that, I think, is the primary evidence for what the Clinton enterprise was all about."
