    For the fiscal year 2014, the foundation has reported assets of US$12.4 billion and approved US$507.9 million in grants. Edsel Ford the founder had another vision for this foundation which has never been met. His goal was: “to receive and administer funds for scientific, educational and charitable purposes, all for the public welfare.” During its early years, the foundation operated in Michigan under the leadership of Ford family members and their associates and supported the Henry Ford Hospital and the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village, among other organizations. Since his presidency, Walker needs to fix the world and make...
  • Private Charitable Foundations Give Lavish Rewards to Insiders

    A mutual-fund manager earned nearly $5 million over eight years from a lucrative side gig. He was trustee of his business partner’s private charitable foundation. Another charitable foundation, set up by a carpet merchant, has millions of dollars in loans outstanding to the man’s carpet company. A third paid out more to companies owned by the foundation president’s family than it gave to charity in a recent year. All these transactions were lawful, the foundations said in their tax filings. A half-century ago, Congress, troubled by tales of foundation self-dealing, enacted a law to prevent insiders from taking advantage of...

    Major American foundations have given millions of dollars in funding to Islamic organizations accused of having ties to radical Islamist movements or designated terrorist organizations and a group of activists are trying to convince them to stop. Groups like Islamic Relief Worldwide, which some countries have banned for allegedly funding Hamas and other terrorist organizations, have received millions of dollars from corporate charities like the GE Foundation, community foundations like the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, and independent foundations like George Soros’ Open Society Foundation.Researchers with the Middle East Forum, an activist group devoted to promoting American interests abroad, identified the financial...
  • Soros has created a superpower for democracy. But he could use some help. [barf alert]

    If a person is to be judged by his enemies, George Soros can feel proud. Autocrats across Eastern Europe, including his native Hungary, as well as those from China to Egypt and many in between, have expressed fear and loathing — and taken action against — the civil society organizations that Mr. Soros has generously supported for three decades. Dictators do not like Mr. Soros at all, so it is good news that he has now contributed $18 billion of his fortune to his Open Society Foundations. Mr. Soros was moved many years ago by the 1945 book by Karl...
  • Presidential Foundations Are Nothing But Rewards For Allowing Globalists To Set The Agenda

    We are all familiar with the Clinton Foundation and the nefarious purposes for which it has been used; it was the bankroll for Hillary’s failed bid, it funds dangerous and divisive “protest” groups, it has been used for further enriching the Clinton family, and of course it has been used as a clearing house for washing money from Globalist enterprises. But Foundations are more common than is generally known, and it seems the Globalists have got their grubby hands into many of the leading politician’s pockets. Another failed Presidential candidate is Senator John McCain, and like Hillary, he also has...

    Former FBI Director James Comey acted on key information created by Russian intelligence in the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails that he knew to be fake, CNN reported Friday. Unidentified officials told CNN that Comey feared that if the information became public it would undermine the investigation as well as the Justice Department itself. The false information reportedly spurred the then-FBI chief to publicly declare last summer that the investigation into Clinton’s emails was over. Meanwhile, Comey also said that Clinton had been “extremely careless” in her handling of classified information.
  • How a dubious Russian document influenced the FBI’s handling of the Clinton probe

    In the midst of the 2016 presidential primary season, the FBI received a purported Russian intelligence document describing a tacit understanding between the campaign of Hillary Clinton and the Justice Department over the inquiry into whether she intentionally revealed classified information through her use of a private email server. The Russian document mentioned a supposed email describing how then-Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch had privately assured someone in the Clinton campaign that the email investigation would not push too deeply into the matter

    If the deadly schemes of the giant tax-exempt foundations are to be stopped — and they must be — we must learn from the failed attempts of the past to bring them to account. According to a September 2015 article on George Soros in the journal Inside Philanthropy, the hedge fund billionaire had, by that time, given away about $12 billion through his Open Society Foundations (OSF). Much, if not most, of that has gone to “progressive” causes, including hundreds of organizations in over 100 countries. As we detail elsewhere (see here and here), many of these OSF grantees are fronts...

     The French 5th Estate, the press, couldn't understand what all the Watergate fuss was about. "Mais bien sûr, but of course, when a political leader gets into power, the first point of order is to reward one's friends and punish one's enemies, this is as it has always been". They were completely mystified by American political puritanism. Of course, the French political press had no idea that political payoffs were involved, and this might have made quite a difference. Howard Hughes is alleged to have paid Nixon $100,000, but this fact was unknown at the time. The great innovation of the present...

    New York City, N.Y., Feb 13, 2015 / 04:02 am (CNA).- Questions are being raised over two U.S. foundations that have poured more than three million dollars into abortion rights, LGBT activist, and legal groups to push the message that exemptions based on religious beliefs are “un-American” and an abuse of liberty. The Arcus Foundation and the Ford Foundation have spent over $3 million in combined spending against religious liberty exemptions since 2013, according to a CNA review of tax forms and grant listings. John Lomperis of the Institute for Religion and Democracy – a D.C.-based ecumenical Christian think tank...

    Original Title: "The Chain of Environmental Command: How a Club of Billionaires and Their Foundations Control the Environmental Movement and Obama’s EPA" - shortened due to length. Not since the Dodd Report to the Reece Committee on Foundations in 1954, has a report identified the destructive nature of tax exempt foundations and their goal: socialism. This title, is a Minority Staff Report by the US Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works – The evidence provided in this report highlights the lengths the far-left environmental movement goes to hide sources of funding and to disguise their actions – bought and...

    The Hill ^ | 22 Dec 13 | Jeremy Herb
    The battle over military retirement benefits in the budget deal was the first skirmish in a larger compensation war, and next year's outcome could determine the fate of long-protected military compensation programs. Budget experts and veterans groups say the retirement benefits fight will serve as a test case to see what appetite there is on Capitol Hill to actually cut military compensation costs — and how much blowback will come from those efforts. “There’s no doubt that this is a little bit of a weather vane, a litmus test as to what the veterans and military communities’ tolerance is going...

    If social science, as employed by America’s largest foundations over the last century, were so wonderfully productive of human flourishing, why don’t Kramer and Brest toss out numerous instances of its successes with such non-bacterial human problems as unwed motherhood, the declining work force participation of men, or “income inequality”? Why haven’t foundations conquered those challenges as straightforwardly as cholera and hookworm? Could it be because human beings differ in kind from bacteria and parasitic nematodes?

    Does silence help women? I mean, silence about violations of women’s rights? The question arises from testimony Congress heard yesterday from human rights activists who discussed China’s barbaric policy toward women and their unborn children. ...One hears little to nothing about these human rights violations from the many large foundations that have long funded “population control” around the world. They pride themselves on their support for “safe abortion,” but are strangely silent about these decades-long abuses that still occur in the planet’s most populous nation. Such silence contrasts sharply with yesterday’s House hearing: “It took a blind man to really...

    American Thinker ^ | March 24, 2013 | Clarice Feldman
    I have watched over the years how publicly unaccountable foundations have amassed billions of dollars, tax free, and spend it on dangerous, leftwing, often anti-American and anti-Israeli outfits, conferences and promoters. Taxpaying citizens opposed to abortion without restrictions, open borders, balkanization of the country, erosion of their constitutional rights, dumbed down education of their children and environmental extremism are fighting opposition very generously funded by these groups. The irony of this development is that capitalists -- like Ford, Rockefeller, Carnegie, Pew -- who owed their fortunes to American free market policies, started most of these foundations. Further, the notion of...

    <p>This section of DiscoverTheNetworks examines the immensely wealthy charitable foundations that provide financial backing for leftist groups and causes. These foundations -- sometimes called endowments or charitable trusts -- are nongovernmental, nonprofit entities whose assets are provided by donors and managed by their (the foundations') own officials, who earmark portions of their assets each year for what they consider to be socially useful purposes. Most of these foundations can be classified under the following categories: Community Foundations, which build their endowments through contributions from many donors within a given geographic region, and typically focus on local needs Corporate Foundations, which are private foundations established by for-profit corporations but legally separate from the parent corporations 

Family Foundations, in which the original donor or the donor's family plays a significant role in governing the foundation 

Independent Foundations, which are private foundations, usually endowed by one source such as an individual's bequest

 Operating Foundations, which are private foundations that use most of their income to provide charitable services or programs of their own, rather than making grants to outside organizations 

Public Foundations, which are public charities that operate significant grantmaking programs The DiscoverTheNetworks database currently identifies and profiles more than 125 major foundations whose political and philanthropic orientations are generally leftist, and whose combined assets exceed $100 billion. Some of the foundations described in this section are so large that they have single-handedly shaped entire cultural and political movements. (See, for example, the Ford Foundation's role in underwriting The Open Borders Lobby.</p>

    The tax-exempt sector is in trouble when even stern critics of big government demand that Congress and the IRS rein in nonprofits. The latest example comes from the hard-right American Thinker website. Unfortunately, the essay’s author hasn’t thought through her argument, which adopts the flawed thinking of her political opponents. ...Worst of all, she repeatedly attacks her targets by stressing how much money they have and how little control and taxation government exercises upon it.

    Progressives are on the move once more. Wisconsin lit the spark, as workers, students, teachers and farmers occupied the state’s capitol in February and launched recall elections that sobered conservative Republican Gov. Scott Walker and his legislative allies. Occupy Wall Street turned that spark into a conflagration that swept the nation. Last week, in Ohio and Maine and even Mississippi, voters overwhelmingly rejected efforts to trample worker rights, constrict the right to vote and roll back women’s rights. These electoral victories have led pundits to wonder whether Occupy Wall Street will imitate the Tea Party and stand candidates for office....
