    OK Freepers, what is the best charity to give to support Harvey? The Red Cross? I have been hearing them panned since Vietnam. What about the Salvation Army? Hey, the Clinton Foundation did great work in Haiti, just ask Hillary. What are your suggestions?

    NBC Meet the Press host Chuck Todd has a wife who’s active in Democratic Party strategic communications, and sometimes donates to Democrats. In 2012, Kristian Denny Todd contributed $2,500 to Sen. Tim Kaine. Todd never felt any need to disclose this during his three recent Kaine interviews on NBC (August 7, September 18, and October 23). But Maverick Mail & Strategies, the firm Mrs. Todd founded in 2007 with fellow James Webb aides Steve Jarding and Jessica Vanden Berg, did heavy lifting for openly socialist Bernie Sanders for President this year. Open Secrets shows a bill for $1.992 million made...

    A new Wikileaks document reveals Hillary took Algeria off the US terror watch list after they made a hefty donation to the Clinton Foundation’s Haiti relief project. How is that legal? The Clinton camp was discussing Joe Scarborough’s discussion on the Algerian donations to the Clinton Foundation. The Clinton advisors defended the move in the email saying it’s “legal gray area.”

    Peter Thiel is putting his money where his mouth is. The billionaire PayPal cofounder is donating $1.25 million to Donald Trump's campaign, according to a source close to Thiel. Thiel has been a vocal supporter of Trump -- one of the most prominent in Silicon Valley. He spoke at the Republican National Convention and made history when he declared on stage that he was proud to be gay. Thiel's donation will be given through Super PACs and directly to Trump's campaign, according to the source. This is the first time Thiel will be donating to Trump. The donation was first...

    Hello my fellow FReepers.  I hope your day has started out on the right track.  It's August 21st, and we're in the middle of another FReep-a-thon.  That is what I would like to talk to you about, FReep-a-thons. Like some others, I was unable to donate to Free Republic in second quarter this year.  I had the pleasure of turning 65 and this year that meant about seven of my accounts were affected.  Each of them had the potential to change anywhere from $50 to as much as $200 dollars in my monthly budget.  This left me unclear as to...

    Last July, a Cruz-affiliated super PAC donated $500,000 to Fiorina's campaign, without explanation -- a highly unusual move that is being reexamined in light of the Enquirer's report about Cruz's indiscretions. And Fiorina made a highly publicized last-minute endorsement of Cruz in the final days before the Florida primary, helping him come in a respectable second to Trump and keeping his White House hopes alive.

    An international law firm has ceased their sponsorship of student activities at Harvard Law School following an incident in which some of the money it donated for the students was used to pay for an pro-Palestinian event by a student group on campus. The student group "Justice for Palestine" had used $500 from the fund to pay for pizza for students who participated in a "pro-Palestine" discussion that took place in the fall of 2015. Soon after, students were told by the University that the fund was no longer available for their use. The Toronto Star reported that the firm,...

    Donald Trump has come under fire during the campaign for his supporting Hillary Clinton and specifically, the Clinton Foundation. Records show Trump donated $250,000 to the Foundation and many conservatives have questioned how he can run as a Republican while playing on his extensive ties with the Clintons. The Hill: Republican primary front-runner Donald Trump on Sunday explained why he gave a quarter of a million dollars to the Clinton Foundation before he ran for president. “I did give to the Clinton Foundation. What I didn’t know is they’d be using it for private aircraft and things like that,”...

    When Dale Russakoff began writing about Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg's $100 million gift to help fix the failing schools in Newark, N.J., she assumed she would end up telling an uplifting story of transformational change. "It sounded to me at the time like, well, that's enough money to do anything," Russakoff recalled of watching Zuckerberg announce the gift before a whooping "Oprah" audience in 2010, joined by a political odd couple in the form of Newark's charismatic, reform-minded Democratic mayor at the time, Cory Booker, and New Jersey's Republican governor, Chris Christie. "I didn't think it was going to be...

    It took Ted Cruz three months to raise $10 million for his campaign for president, a springtime sprint of $1,000-per-plate dinners, hundreds of handshakes and a stream of emails asking supporters to chip in a few bucks. One check, from one donor, topped those results. New York hedge fund magnate Robert Mercer's $11 million gift to a group backing the Texas Republican's White House bid put him atop a tiny group of millionaires and billionaires whose contributions already dwarf those made by the tens of thousands of people who have given to their favorite presidential candidate. An Associated Press analysis...
