BIRMINGHAM, AL (AP) The Trump administration on Friday slashed $400,000 in federal funding for one of the few U.S. groups that combat white extremism but denied it is now focusing only on fighting radical Islamists.
A grant announcement by the Department of Homeland Security eliminated funding for the Chicago-based Life After Hate, which was initially awarded the money in January during the closing days of the Obama administration.
In all, Homeland Security awarded $10 million to 26 police and community organizations, none of which has a specific mission to counter groups in the so-called alt-right, a hodge-podge of white supremacists, white populists and white nationalists, many of whom supported Trump for president.

This is bullsquat
This is part of Antifa’s funding.
Excellent. Keep,it up.
How about a grant for groups fighting black extremists?
More WINNING....now if only “universities got many of their grants slashed
Excellent, they need to stop bankrolling the left with public funds.
That was the working method of Eric Holder and his stooge Thomas Perez at the Obama “Justice” Department.
Exactly. While it's quite fashionable to hate whitey, it needn't be done at the taxpayer's expense.
Refund all leftist, “social justice” agitation programs.
Rice refuses to testify before Congress plus Obama refuses to turn over official documents about Rice unmasking candidate Trump's people.
REFERENCE--- As of March 2017, Rice began a job as a Distinguished Visiting Research Fellow in the American Universitys School of International Service..... The school announced that during her residency at A/U, Rice will work primarily on her next book and mentor SIS students on careers in national security.
The school defines her position with Obama thusly: She provided the President with daily national security briefings and was responsible for coordinating the formulation and implementation of all aspects of the Administrations foreign and national security policy, intelligence, and military efforts.

From MSNBC's transcript: Susan Rice tells Andrea Mitchell about her activities: Let me explain how this works. I was a National Security Adviser, my job is to protect the American people and the security of our country. Thats the same as the Secretary of State, Secretary of Defense and CIA Director.; and every morning, to enable us to do that, we receive from the intelligence com munity a compilation of intelligence reports that the IC, the intelligence community, has selected for us on a daily basis to give us the best information as to whats going on around the world.
This is an excellent start but it’s just that; a start.
All money flowing to any anti-white or anti-right leaning organization from the US government (taxpayers) needs to be clawed back. A complete refund by those corrupt org’s.
Just to be fair; not money to right leaning org’s should be granted on a political basis. This kind of political corruption needs to be halted. Congress should be writing and making laws making this clear.
The next time a leftist President is in office we already know they will be a corrupt as the day is long because all dem pols are corrupt. By making this a law we have a way to prevent taxpayer money going to these corrupt org’s. However a leftist congress could change that law in the future.
This is probably one of those laws that needs to be written into the changes made to the Constitution when the Convention of States convenes. That way no changes can be made to it without a large majority in Congress.
How about letting taxpayers keep the fruits of their labor?
Yep......redistributing tax payer dollars to his friends in Chicago as usual.....and in the last days of his Presidency no less.....I’m sure there will be ore discovered he funneled out.
Trump will be called a racist for not funding anti-white racists.
"The Claremont School of Theology in Los Angeles, which has a division for Islamic studies that had been awarded $800,000 by the Obama administration, opted out of the program under Trump.
Jihad Turk, president of the Bayan Claremont Islamic Graduate School, said questions existed about the governments approach under Obama, and they got worse under Trump."
Now if Trump would just sign an executive order declaring the SPLC a hate group, and Morris Dees and the despicable Mark Potok terrorists.
We hear about Soros, et.al., but the left’s real funding comes from the government in many, many forms. Some are clandestine and many are overt; like grants to colleges.
The Republicans need to dry up their sources of money. This is really what has the left scared out of their minds and is a major cause of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Anybody with TDS, which is easy to spot, should be on the no-fly list, and terrorist watch lists.
Chicago? Those tax dollars to Obama's hometown---about to declare bankruptcy--- went straignt into the pockets of greedy Chicago political insiders.
MEMORY LANE IN CHICAGO: from chicago.suntimes.com ...
In Sept 2013, the daughter of infamous God D**n America Rev Wright, and 12 other Democrats were charged with embezzling $16 million in Federal health grants (tax dollars) earmarked for AIDS charities and programs for the poor and needy. More than one of the defendants had direct ties to President Barack Obama.
ONCE UPON A TIME IN GANGLAND CHICAGO Rev Jeremiah's Wright's beloved daughter was convicted for looting a $1.25 million state grant which financed a tax- exempt, not-for-profit work and education program called "We Are Our Brother's Keeper," owned by Regina Evans, former police chief of Country Club Hills, and her husband, Ronald Evans Jr.
Back in 6/8/13 Chicago Police Chief Regina Evans (above) pleaded guilty to government fraud and money-laundering related to the misuse of a $1.25 million state grant to the non-profit she ran with her husband, Ronald Evans Jr.
Earlier, in October 11, 2011, Police Chief Regina Evans Resigned
COUNTRY CLUB HILLS, Ill. (CBSLOCAL.COM) Country Club Hills Mayor said that negotiations were underway to clear the way for the resignation of police Chief Regina Evans, in office for about two years,
<><> Regina Evans was on (ahem) disability leave since August 2011,
<><> it was earlier reported that Illinois AG's office is suing Regina Evans' n/p over its handling of state job training grant worth more than $500,000.
<><> Evans also signed off on invoices for a controversial summer camp where the campers including children of aldermen who voted for it got paid to attend (Chicago-way--"redistribution of income").
<><> Most recently, Evans came under fire for overseeing a 2011 part-time police program where 10 part-time police officers were hired.... bur that many had questionable backgrounds, and werent qualified to do police work. They were ordered to turn in their guns and badges (got high-paid city sanitation jobs).

Just goes to show: sap-happy Dem/Libs love to say they're "for" their fellow-man---while conniving to make a buck on it.
