Nonprofit Bailout included in Stimulus Package
Capital Research Center ^ | January 16, 2009 | Matthew Vadum

Posted on 01/16/2009 11:39:42 AM PST by vadum

Left-of-center nonprofits are getting the bailout they wanted from the U.S. government, the Chronicle of Philanthropy reports. The news comes a month after Independent Sector president Diana Aviv demanded it.

Our lawmakers are intent on pissing away billions of dollars on utterly useless giveaways to their supporters in the liberal nonprofit establishment. The money will have virtually no positive impact on the economy, except perhaps that it might bolster employment at nonprofit groups.

One of the more egregious line items is the $1 billion allocation for community development block grants (CDBG). These are slush funds that liberal groups like La Raza and ACORN use to subsidize their operations.

Once again,the money taken by threat of force from the productive will be given to their non-productive enemies.

It really is just as simple as that.

And it's going to get a hell of a lot worse very soon.

Don’t forget that line item on home loans that will go to ACORN ...

Sooner we get to the end the sooner we can hang these seditious polidiots and presstitutes aka domestic enemies of the USA and go back to a constitutional republic. Sadly at this point I can foresee no less than the anarchy they seek as a solution for removing them from their positions of disruption and unconstitutional authority to fix one persons or groups bank accounts due bad fiscal decisions ........doom on em !

Just have to resist this administrations socialist agendas at every turn and survive if possible as we watch this slow motion train wreck play itself out .

Just my opinion of course.....

They prop up the nonprofits, because as ‘public private partnerships’ nonprofits are in fact acting as the government. You see, the government is only propping itself up.

The Democrats have no concept of wealth-creation. They’ve convinced themselves that the mere spending of money builds an economy — even if its on wealth-sucking liberal do-gooder non-profits. It’s gonna be a long 8 years.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Quit donating private funds to charities. In a socialist society NO-ONE makes donations. The government takes care of everything and everybody. Hang on to your hard earned money!!!!

Don’t forget that line item on home loans that will go to ACORN ...

The taxpayers are going to have to become just as organized as the left in providing critical oversight to the distribution and expensing of these grants...

Some of the best charities may never see a penny from the government. We shouldn’t stop giving to them. It’s sad that we’re forced to fund some of the groups that are destroying our country while we must sacrifice to fund those who will better it. But we shouldn”t stop doing the latter because of the former

Push the fight to the supreme court. Then again, they wouldn’t even make Obama show his birth certificate (he didn’t, there would be no case if he did).

MY new criteria for charitable giving is very simple. I only give to charities that support struggling Republicans. If a charity gives any money to democrats, I just don’t give.

As it applies to politics, I would urge folks to donate directly to people they know and support. I would not give one cent to the Republican party these days. They’ll simply use it to support RINOs and block the advance of Conservatives you and I approve of.

If this is true and comes to pass, it will indeed be time to revolt and take back our government.

A charity is not the same as a non-profit, necessarily. The orgs being aided with this bailout have political agendas. In fact, they are based on "free money," foundation grants, government grants, etc.

Take, for example, the Social Public Art Resource Project (SPARC) here in L.A. They have painted murals all over SoCal, bursting with communist/socialist images, revisionist history of "oppression," etc. This is part of the brainwashing of the college students and the working poor. They are masters of accumulating grants from public and private sources. They are the "zapatistas" who threw rocks and bottles at police two years ago, while protesting in behalf of illegals. My guess is they are going to get a piece of this pie also.
