  • Prosecutors: Corrine Brown Used Fraud Charity to Rob Children in Need

    05/08/2017 10:22:50 AM PDT · by Helicondelta · 11 replies ^ | May 8, 2017
    Prosecutors wrapped up their closing arguments Monday in the tax evasion and fraud trial of former Democratic Rep. Corrine Brown (Fla.) by telling jurors the evidence overwhelmingly shows that Brown used her ‘charitable organization' to illegally benefit herself and staffers. The prosecution added that Brown's actions effectively led to needy children being robbed of scholarships. "The real victims are all of those worthy kids who could have gotten scholarships, who needed a leg up. That's who she robbed from, those kids," Eric G. Olshan, one of the prosecutors, said during the one-hour closing arguments against Brown, reported. In July...

    Every time you think that the Clintons can't get any lower, they get lower and then lower still. And then they find a sewer below it to swim in. Do you think the Clintons have gotten as low as it's possible for human beings to get? Grifters gotta grift. And monsters have to do things like this. The CHAI program to help AIDS victims is considered one of the Clinton Foundation’s most important contributions and is probably its best known initiative. The congressional report focused on Clinton’s decade-long relationship with a controversial Indian drug manufacturer called Ranbaxy, which CHAI used...

    Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute and author of Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich, joined SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Thursday’s Breitbart News Daily to talk about the latest Clinton scandal updates. Marlow pointed to the story about hundreds of Clinton Foundation donors rewarded with seats on advisory boards by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and The Wall Street Journal’s suspicions of a pay-for-play arrangement between Bill Clinton and the perfume industry. “It continues to confirm what people know, which is, whatever the Clintons...
  • EXCLUSIVE: Clinton Foundation AIDS Program Distributed ‘Watered-Down’ Drugs To Third World Countries

    Former President Bill Clinton and his Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) distributed “watered-down” HIV/AIDs drugs to patients in sub-Saharan Africa, and “likely increased” the risks of morbidity and mortality, according to a draft congressional report obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. The congressional report, titled,“The Clinton Foundation and The India Success Story,” was initiated by Rep. Marsha Blackburn, a Tennessee Republican and vice-chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. The CHAI program to help AIDS victims is considered one of the Clinton Foundation’s most important contributions and is probably its best known initiative.
  • Why the Clinton Foundation is One, Gigantic Scam (more on the 5.7% charity money)

    09/17/2016 10:47:12 AM PDT · by rktman · 37 replies ^ | 9/17/2016 | rick moran
    According to tax returns filed by the Clinton Foundation, only 5.7% of the funds raised actually went to charitable organizations. The rest went to salaries and benefits for employees and "other expenses." A well run charity spends only about 25% on administrative costs. Daily Caller: The Clinton Foundation spent a hair under $91.3 million in 2014, the organization’s IRS filings show. But less than $5.2 million of that went to charitable grants. That number pales in comparison to the $34.8 million the foundation spent on salaries, compensation and employee benefits. Another $50.4 million was marked as “other expenses,” while the...

    Just 5.7 percent of the Clinton Foundation’s massive 2014 budget actually went to charitable grants, according to the tax-exempt organization’s IRS filings. The rest went to salaries and employee benefits, fundraising and “other expenses.” The Clinton Foundation spent a hair under $91.3 million in 2014, the organization’s IRS filings show. But less than $5.2 million of that went to charitable grants. That number pales in comparison to the $34.8 million the foundation spent on salaries, compensation and employee benefits. Another $50.4 million was marked as “other expenses,” while the remaining almost $851K was marked as “professional fundraising expenses.” Despite taking...
  • In Search Of The Red Cross' $500 Million In Haiti Relief (built 6 permanent homes)

    NPR ^ | Laura Sullivan
    When a devastating earthquake leveled Haiti in 2010, millions of people donated to the American Red Cross. The charity raised almost half a billion dollars. It was one of its most successful fundraising efforts ever. The American Red Cross vowed to help Haitians rebuild, but after five years the Red Cross' legacy in Haiti is not new roads, or schools, or hundreds of new homes. It's difficult to know where all the money went. NPR and ProPublica went in search of the nearly $500 million and found a string of poorly managed projects, questionable spending and dubious claims of success,...

    Leave it to the sleazy down-home Democrats of the Midwest to steal more than $16 Million from various charities, including one for those suffering from AIDS. Also not so surprising, several of the scammers have ties to President Barack Obama, including one who happens to be related to President Obama’s friend and former pastor Jeremiah “God Damn America” Wright. The U.S. attorney’s office in Springfield has been busy the past few years investigating a variety of fraud schemes involving state grants. Thirteen people have been charged so far, six who have pleaded guilty. Two of them have ties to President...

    Last week WSB-TV in Atlanta uncovered what Rush has somehow been unable to see: that HSUS (Humane Society of the United States) is “an organization actively misleading donors to get money.” If you enjoy a good steak, if you hunt or fish, if you wear leather shoes, if you take your kids to the circus, if you (or a family member) owe your life to medical research that involved lab animals—the Humane Society of the United States doesn’t share your values. The group has the same agenda as PETA and the rest of the animal rights industry. And it is...

    BOSTON— The jury in the case of three officers of a defunct Muslim charity listened yesterday to wiretaps in U.S. District Court in which two of the defendants spoke to two men who subsequently were convicted with Jose Padilla on terrorism conspiracy charges. However, when jury members heard Emadeddin Z. Muntasser and Samir Al-Monla, successive presidents of Care International from 1993 through 1998, talk to Kifah Jayoussi and Adham Hassoun, they were not told that Mr. Jayoussi and Mr. Hassoun are awaiting sentencing in federal court in Miami after having been convicted with Mr. Padilla.... The jury has been told...

    Tsunami survivors given the lash Michael Sheridan and Dewi Loveard, Banda Aceh Disaster donations help Islamic vigilante force impose punishments on women WHEN people around the world sent millions of pounds to help the stricken Indonesian province of Aceh after the Boxing Day tsunami of 2004, few could have imagined that their money would end up subsidising the lashing of women in public. But militant Islamists have since imposed sharia law in Aceh and have cornered Indonesian government funds to organise a moral vigilante force that harasses women and stages frequent displays of humiliation and state-sanctioned violence.

    People who donate to Mothers Against Drunk Driving are told by the charity that most of the $12 million it raises annually is spent on good works — stopping drunk driving and helping families traumatized by fatal crashes. But a Star investigation reveals most of the high-profile charity's money is spent on fundraising and administration, leaving only about 19 cents of each donor dollar for charitable works. MADD chief executive officer Andrew Murie defends the expenses, saying the paid telemarketers and door-knockers are actually performing good works because they educate the public as they ask for cash. That's a defence...

    He's in charge of providing housing for low-income residents, but he's also driving a new Hummer sport utility vehicle. It was paid for with your tax money. KIRO Team 7 Investigative reporter Chris Halsne digs into the spending habits of some local Housing Authority directors. Let's start with Vancouver Housing Authority Executive Director Kurt Creager. Many of his section-8 clients don't have enough money for any car, but Creager just expensed a $37,000 H-3. It's not the first time his spending has raised questions about how that office handles your tax money. Creager isn't shy about showing off his latest...

    Tax filings for Denise Rich's G&P Foundation for cancer reasearch show, among other things, that Marc Rich donated $18,000.00 by wire transfer to the charity created in his daughter Gabrielle's memory.The contribution is listed in the charity's year 2000 form 990, meaning it was made before the end of the year--and before Marc Rich was pardoned by Clinton at the urging of Democratic fundraiser Denise.Marc Rich contribution is not significantly large, but is among many interesting donations made to the G&P Foundation, which had a gigantic fundraiser in November 2000 at which Bill and Hillary Clinton appeared, not to mention...

    Charity... or terrorism? By Robert M. Hathaway It is probably advisable for the American Government to hold an official inquiry into fund-raising in the U.S. by groups implicated in the Gujarat violence. TERRORISM COMES in many guises. An armed assault against Parliament House in New Delhi. A suicide bomber detonating high explosives in a crowded bazaar. Political assassination. Angry young men flying commercial aircraft into the World Trade Center. And, yes, hate-consumed mobs butchering innocent women and children. The people of India need no instruction from foreigners regarding the moral issues raised by this spring's communal violence in Gujarat. Except...
