    Obama lackey John Podesta who founded the far left Center for American Progress is about as transparent as Obama. The Center of American Progress has been hiding itís donor lists for month. Finally, today they were shamed into releasing a partial list of donors. Problem is Podestaís Center for American Progress isnít accounting for over $5 million in donations from Ďanonymous sources.í Podesta will likely be a big part of Hillary Clintonís run next year, if the old granny does in fact run. Wonder if sheíll get questions about her buddy Podestaís missing $5 million. Funny too that you donít...

    Earlier this week, Hillary Clinton harshly criticized three countries for directly funding terrorists who are actively seeking to attack the United States and Western Europe. The governments of this trio of nations have contributed between $16 million and $40 million to the Clinton Foundation. Clinton sharply denounced the three countries ó Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar ó in a speech in Cleveland on Monday. It was her first public speech after Saturday nightís terrorist massacre at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla.

    The revelation that Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is facing a federal investigation related to campaign donations could complicate Hillary Clinton's effort to win the state in November. The ties between McAuliffe and the Clinton family run deep -- both personally and professionally. McAuliffe often refers to Bill Clinton as his best friend. He served as Clinton's handpicked chair of the Democratic National Committee. Hillary Clinton was an early and enthusiastic supporter of McAuliffe's run for governor in 2013. Several of McAuliffe's key campaign staffers have graduated to the Clinton campaign.. McAuliffe has denied any wrongdoing and said "Investigations happen, no...

    The deal Donald Trump struck with the Republican National Committee this week that allows wealthy supporters to give nearly $500,000 to finance his campaign and get-out-the-vote activities made it official: The parties are back in the big-money business. Fourteen years after a landmark campaign-finance overhaul clamped down on the flow of unregulated money to party coffers, both Republicans and Democrats are raising huge contributions again with gusto. Supporters of Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton can rack up even higher totals because of her decision to launch a 32-state joint fundraising committee with the Democratic National Committee last fall. Between that fund...

    The casino magnate Sheldon G. Adelson told Donald J. Trump in a private meeting last week that he was willing to contribute more to help elect him than he has to any previous campaign, a sum that could exceed $100 million, according to two Republicans with direct knowledge of Mr. Adelsonís commitment. As significant, Mr. Adelson, a billionaire based in Las Vegas, has decided that he will significantly scale back his giving to congressional Republicans and direct most of his contributions to groups dedicated to Mr. Trumpís campaign. The two Republicans familiar with Mr. Adelsonís plans spoke anonymously because they...

    In a lengthy analysis of data provided by the Trump campaign, Washington Post writers David A. Fahrenthold and¬† Rosalind S.

Since the first day of his presidential campaign, Donald Trump has said that he gave more than $102 million to charity in the past five years. To back up that claim, Trump‚Äôs campaign compiled a list of his contributions ‚ÄĒ 4,844 of them, filling 93 pages. But, in that massive list, one thing was missing.

    Ted Cruz wants to make the argument that he’s best prepared to take on Hillary Clinton in two ways. First, he’s an authentic anti-establishment conservative who has no taint of crony politics or connections to the Clinton establishment, unlike you-kn0w-who. Second, his organization is better prepared to out-organize and out-hustle the Democrats. Bloomberg’s report on Cruz’ fundraising helps underscore the second argument, with a total of $32 million in the first quarter of 2016: Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz raised $12.5m in March, campaign says in news release. Cruz raised $7.6m in January, $11.9m in February, according to FEC...

    Are the rest of you as disgusted as I am with the current political process? This began over a year ago and has cost millions of dollars while no end is in sight. In fact we are no closer to having even a nominee for President. Wouldn't it be possible to host the debates on CSPAN as table discussions that could be run without the attacks and disputes that are fostered on the Media television channels? Wouldn't this be a more sensible way to present the candidates and their opinions? It could also eliminate the millions of dollars of fundraising....

    We went to two authoritative databases of campaign finance data to examine Fergusonís numbers: OpenSecrets.org, to find federal donations, and FollowtheMoney.org, for state-level donations. Trump has actually been relatively evenhanded in doling out cash to the two parties, but since 1989, heís contributed over $350,000 more to Republicans running for federal and state offices, campaign finance records show. Data from the Federal Election Commission and state elections offices provided by the two websites show that Trump has given $584,850 to Democrats and $961,140 to the GOP over the last 26 years. The difference in donations is almost entirely captured in...

    When running a campaign where your base wants to hear about how you will eat the rich and put the 1% in their proper place, the wealthy truly have to learn to tread carefully. With that in mind, somebody over at Hillary Headquarters might want to suggest that when the subject of money comes up during interviews or debates, their candidate should just pretend she has a foot cramp and change the subject. It seems that every time Hillary Clinton opens her mouth on the subject of cash lately, her foot winds up halfway down her throat. When she was...

You either love him or you hate him. Well a photo is making its way around the Internet that might actually boost him just a touch with those who aren't quite ready to jump on the Trump train. It's a picture of his personal finances and shows how much money he's given to charities over the last five years. It's a pretty substantial amount.

It was not that long ago that people were squeamish about asking each other for money. Bringing up the subject of personal finances at all used to be...

While much of its funding comes from oil sales, the group has also resorted to capturing individuals in an attempt to extract payment for their safe return.

That haul is just a fraction of the $20 million the campaign of retired brain surgeon Ben Carson says it is on track to post for the third quarter -- half of that money coming in in September alone. Paul's third quarter total is well under the $7 million the libertarian firebrand raised in the second quarter. Part of that money was transferred from...

    When I heard that Bill Clinton was making as much as $500,000 per speech and made many more millions in his post-presidency, I thought to myself, God bless him. This is the American way. Former President Clintonís speaker fees are probably in line with other former presidents who draw big fees, maybe bigger owing to his global popularity. But God bless them all.

    Perhaps not the the most effective messaging in the history of politics, but this is the corner in which Team Hillary finds itself, in the wake of two major bombshells that detonated this morning: Shorter Clinton Campaign: ‚ÄúAll of this smoke is not caused by a fire.‚ÄĚ https://t.co/E6gUyAuuuj pic.twitter.com/U4Zv5fWO7Q¬ó Logan Dobson (@LoganDobson) April 23, 2015 The New York Times (building on reporting in the forthcoming book ‚ÄėClinton Cash‚Äô) revealed the sordid web of cash and coziness wherein the Clintons and their foundation found themselves much richer, and the Russian government found itself in possession of a very large percentage...

  • PolitiFact Gives Reince Priebus A Pass

    Last week, GOP chief weasel, Reince Priebus, was squawking about Hillary Clinton and how she allegedly gotten all this money from the kings of other countries, which would, of course, be illegal. The supposedly unbiased PolitiFact decided to look at his claims. Their findings: "Priebus said Clinton took "money from kings of Saudi Arabia and Morocco and Oman and Yemen." The monarchies of Saudi Arabia, Morocco and Oman have contributed to the Clinton Foundation, but Yemen, which does not have a king, has not.

    Major contributors like the Koch brothers and Tom Steyer would get a break on gift taxes to secretive non-profit groups. The House on Wednesday with little fanfare passed legislation that would protect major donors like the Koch brothers and Tom Steyer from having to pay gift taxes on huge donations to secret money political groups. The legislation, which now heads to the Senate, is seen by fundraising operatives as removing one of the few remaining potential obstacles to unfettered big-money spending by nonprofit groups registered under a section of the Tax Code ó 501(c) ó that allows them to shield...

    Is it a good thing or a bad thing that a presidential candidate demonstrates an ability to raise enough money to effectively reach the ďinhabitants of AmericaĒ with his political message? On Friday, National Public Radioís The Diane Rehm Show took a further drag on our tax dollars to take incredulous note of the fact that four Super PACs supportive of Republican Ted Cruzís campaign for president declared having collected, collectively, $31 million. One of Dianeís guests, Neal King, Jr., with the Wall Street Journal, explained that all four PACs associated with the Cruz effort sport the ďKeep the PromiseĒ...

    Millionaire Robert Mercer helps him raise an 'eye-popping' $31M right off the bat.If other GOP contenders shrugged off Ted Cruz's chances of winning the nomination, it's a safe bet they're reassessing things after four new super PACS announced they'd raised a staggering $31 million to support his new candidacy. "Even in the context of a presidential campaign cycle in which the major party nominees are expected to raise more than $1.5 billion, Cruzís haul is eye-popping, one that instantly raises the stakes in the Republican fundraising contest," writes Mark Halperin at Bloomberg. The super PACs in question are only a...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: This is classic, too. You know these two guys, Heilemann and Mark Halperin, that we talk about a lot here? They've got this Internet show at Bloomberg, and they're classic. Halperin may be a little bit more informed about us than your average Drive-By Media person, but it doesn't do him much good. These are the two guys that write campaign books. They learn all the stuff that would kill a Democrat candidate, and they hold it for after the election for their book, it's those two guys. Halperin used to be at ABC, political director, whatever....

    According to a Wednesday story in Bloomberg, the Ted Cruz for President Campaign has let it be known that a group of super PACs associated with the campaign expects to have $31 million in the bank by Friday. This feat is impressive considering that the Cruz campaign is not even two weeks old, and the super PACs in question were formed just this week. In the political fundraising game, this is what is called shock and awe. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is likely to be the champion fund raiser on the Republican side. But the news of Cruzís feat,...
