This laundering of money from a tax-exempt organization to a non-tax-exempt “action” organization is an old communist techinque used by the Anti-Defense and anti-Vietnam/proHanoi lobbies.
It is documented in a report/testimony in the 1987 House Ways & Means Committee hearings on reforming the Lobbying Act of 1946,etc.
One organization or a coalition of tax exempt organizations donate money to another tax-exempt organization (often a church), who then earmarks it for the “action” (lobbying) group, thus making the original donation tax-exempt.
The Hanoi Lobby used it extensively in their final cut-the-aid to So. Vietnam campaign using the national churches to funnel tax-exempt money to the Coalition to Stop Funding the War, a Tom Hayden-led lobbying effort on behalf of Hanoi (which was created out of the Oct. 1973 Germantown, Ohio “Indochina Peace Campaign” national conference).
It operated out of a congressional office space obtained by communist Rep. Ron Dellumns in the Fall, 1974.
The greatest offenders were the United Methodis Church (Board of Church & Society; Global Ministries; etc); the Presbyterean Church; and the Episcopal Church.
Giffords is alive while several others are dead. She should express gratitude and move on.
Meanwhile Judge Roll is forgotten.
Is it her, or that attention whore Mark Kelly who all of a sudden wants to be a somebody?
Gabby is being used. Used by the Democrats, the virulent anti-gunners, the media and, I think, her spouse.
She would probably be happy to just recover without the intense focus of media and politics...ever notice how she isn’t allowed to speak on her own?
You couldn’t prove it by me.....since her shooting, I certainly haven’t heard her give a speech of more than a few words. Nor have I read anything by here that one could conclusively prove was written by her.
My opinion is that she is very mentally incapacitated and that her husband is ‘speaking’ and ‘writing’ for her. Either him, or some other person in the anti-gun group.
It would seem that they left the extra lobe of her brain intact... the one that only communists and satanists seem to have.
