Posted on 07/04/2014 10:48:40 AM PDT by EagleUSA
Very few Americans realize there exists a large network of far left philanthropists and foundations in America dedicated to destroying the American way of life, our Christian-based culture and our free enterprise system. They seek to remove America from its constitutional foundations and move it toward a European-style socialism. Much of this effort is coordinated by a little known group called the Tides Foundation and its related group, the Tides Center.
Over the course of its 33 year history, the Tides network has given hundreds of millions of dollars to anti-free enterprise groups, gun control groups, anti-private property groups, abortion rights groups, homosexual groups, groups engaged in voter fraud, anti-military groups, and organizations that seek to destroy Americas constitutional basis. All told, over 100 leftist organizations have received funding from one of the two Tides groups.

The US Government of course.
Big business. Look at the Fortune 500 and those are most of the people.

The Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation (originally, the William J. Clinton Foundation) is a non-profit foundation established by former President of the United States Bill Clinton with the stated mission to “strengthen the capacity of people throughout the world to meet the challenges of global interdependence.” The Foundation focuses on four critical areas: health security; economic empowerment; leadership development and citizen service; and racial, ethnic and religious reconciliation. The Foundation works principally through partnerships with like-minded individuals, organizations, corporations, and governments, often serving as an incubator for new policies and programs. They have offices located in New York City and Little Rock, Arkansas.
I can guess the names of the three top salary recipients.
I wonder how much they have skimmed off of this? They are professional crooks.
IDK. All I hear/read from the "news" media is how the Koch brothers are funding the "radical" right and trying to destroy this nation....
There was a dust about about their foundation a year or so ago, but I think it died quickly.
Waiting for Eric Holder or NY to complete their investigation waiting ..waiting
The Johnson administration got the IRS to issue a regulation requiring all non-profits to use fund accounting as their accounting methodology. Then the Regan administration got a statute passed making unpaid loans taxable as income. That pretty much ended the party for rich tax evaders, but it did nothing to curb the activities of the foundations.
Exactly! All people have to do is look at the family members who raised him.
They range from Communist, Marxist, Socialist, Islamic; his mother, father, step-father and grandparents. And, it continued in his college time, where he chose those of the same ilk with which to spend all his time.
Why are people confused about why Obama would hate America ..?? He was indoctrinated with hate for America.
Then, you’re watching and listening to the wrong media.
Harry Reid happens to be the champion of the hate-Koch Brothers.
The worlds’ financial elites fund the left.
Socialism, communism, globalism - all that they control - is their agenda.
You will never hear any pundit blame the Rockefeller Foundation for anything.
They will rarely if ever mention the Ford Foundation or Carnegie foundations.
These foundations fund their agendas to the tune of billions of dollars per year, which is just a portion of the investment income from their endowments.
These foundations have century-old ties and common sources of endowments with the elite universities.
You could call it the “American establishment”; it calls the shots for the leadership of both the political left and right in America, very quietly, behind the scenes.
“..He was indoctrinated with hate for America.”
Yes, and as you say, it is a wonder WHY people did not see this blatant reality from day one. His mindset and ideology were known well before he was elected the first time. Public knowledge...yet the fools put him in our WH. His removal of Churchill’s bust was the big first clue about what was to come from him and who he would surround himself with. It all happened, we knew it, and only half of America listened. And the damage continues...supported by the Congress who has the only real power to stop most it if they wanted to.
Very interesting assertion about the income tax angle - if true, it’s yet one more social pathology spawned by the income tax.
Even the best 'nonprofits' becomes liberal scams after a few years... It's time to stop ALL tax benefits for these types of organizations.
Are salaries from tax-exempts taxed the same as regular incomes?
For employees? Yes. Exactly the same. The only differences in the IRS employee tax regs for non-profits have to do with retirement plans and benefits fairness testing.
BTW it is more accurate to call them non-profits instead of tax exempts. No institution is completely tax exempt. They all are subject to UBIT (unrelated business income tax). They all have to pay social security taxes, unemployment taxes, and workman's comp taxes for their employees. And most of them have to pay certain kinds of property taxes. I worked for a state university back in the 70's that had to pay thousands every year in property tax for their typewriters. The revenue was earmarked for a local school district and the state wouldn't let them out of paying it, even though they never paid a dime in tax for their real property.
Besides the American taxpayer? Do tell.
Yes, but the principals can still avoid taxes — by claiming very nice expenses from the non-profits for their activities.
