    The bulk of Jeffrey Epstein’s donations to MIT came after three university vice presidents learned about his status as a sex offender, an investigation found. Epstein, the deceased financier who was convicted in 2008 of sex crimes involving underage victims, made 10 donations to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology between 2002 and 2017, totaling $850,000, according to the findings of a report by the law firm Goodwin Procter commissioned by the university. That was $50,000 more than university officials had previously said. Epstein also visited MIT nine times between 2013 and 2017. **SNIP** Nine of those donations came after Epstein’s...
  • Transparency: Buttigieg Bundler Exposes Pay-To-Play Scheme For Donations

    A top fundraiser for Pete Buttigieg’s campaign offered access to the candidate in exchange for a donation. The proposition has been exposed – an email to a wealthy supporter from a Buttigieg bundler was reviewed by Axios and the Campaign Legal Center, a campaign finance watchdog. The plea for a campaign contribution in exchange for access to the candidate couldn’t be more clear. “If you want to get on the campaign’s radar now before he is flooded with donations after winning Iowa and New Hampshire, you can use the link below for donations,” the fundraiser, H.K. Park, wrote in...
  • EXCLUSIVE: Chick-fil-A To Stop Donations To Charities With Anti-LGBT Views

    As Chick-fil-A expands globally and into more liberal parts of the U.S., the chicken chain plans to change which charities it donates to after years of bad press and protests from the LGBT community. Beginning next year, Chick-fil-A will move away from its current philanthropic structure, Bisnow has learned. After donating to more than 300 charitable organizations this year, the Atlanta-based fast-food chain will instead focus on three initiatives with one accompanying charity each: education, homelessness and hunger. "There's no question we know that, as we go into new markets, we need to be clear about who we are," Chick-fil-A...

  • Any Way of Verifying That Our Paypal Donation Was Received?

    Myself ^ | 10/25/19 | Me
    I usually donate via Paypal. Paypal says I have made the donation and it is deducted from my account. But I wonder if there is a way to verify that FR actually received the money. After the donation when PP says "returning to merchant" I always get an error message. I made two separate donations last night and today the scoreboard shows only one more donation from [Kentucky] than before I did so. I know this sounds paranoid, but it seems hinky and I'd like to confirm the donations.
  • ‘It’s too much’: Democrats shudder at Trump’s money machine

    The Politico ^ | October 21, 2019 | David Siders, Maggie Severns and Natasha Korecki
    Democrats are increasingly worried by the spending chasm between the two sides — and its implications for 2020. Donald Trump and the Republican National Committee have raised more than $300 million this year for his reelection — more than any other sitting president in history at this point in the campaign. Trump has nearly twice as much cash on hand — $158 million, between his campaign account and the RNC — as Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee had at this time in his successful re-election run. Already this year, Trump’s campaign operation has spent close to $23 million...

    September 24, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — A former member of Congress is calling on the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to audit several left-wing activist groups over their charity arms’ association with a progressive organization he claims is “weaponizing” charitable giving for political purposes. This week, former rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) spoke to Bill Bennett, former education secretary and Fox Nation host, about concerns he detailed earlier this month in a Fox News op-ed about Grassroots Campaigns, a for-profit “progressive” voter canvassing organization that has worked with Planned Parenthood, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC)....

    The Republican National Committee has published its fundraising numbers for July 2019 and once again they've completely destroyed the Democratic National Committee on totals. "In July, the RNC continued to see record enthusiasm for President Trump’s agenda and Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel is leading the charge: Since 2018, major donors have increased from 33% to roughly 45% of total fundraising. This past month was our best off-cycle July in party history," the RNC released Wednesday. "We brought in $20.8 million in receipts in July (nearly 3 times that of the DNC). Cycle to date, the RNC has brought in $117.9 million....

    A new analysis of those who have given political contributions to socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's (D-NY) reelection campaign has reportedly found that only 10 contributors live inside her district. "The FEC only requires that political campaigns disclose the names and addresses of individuals who contribute over $200 to their campaigns during an election," The Daily Caller News Foundation's Andrew Kerr reported. "The $1,525.50 Ocasio-Cortez received from her New York constituents represents less than 1% of her campaign's itemized contributions reported to the FEC in the first half of 2019." While Ocasio-Cortez has outraised all other freshman representatives, the DCNF found...
  • Column: Shaming Trump donors by revealing they donated to Trump? What’s wrong with that?

    What’s most fascinating about the controversy raging about Rep. Joaquin Castro’s tweeting out the names of donors to President Trump’s campaign is that Castro’s Republican detractors seem to be admitting to a dirty little secret. By complaining that he’s exposing those donors to public shaming, they’re effectively acknowledging that donating to Trump is shameful. Whoops. To bring you up to date, Castro, the twin brother of Julian Castro, a candidate for the Democratic nomination for president , on Tuesday tweeted a list of the 44 donors in his hometown of San Antonio who have made the maximum donations to the...
  • Trump campaign's small-dollar donations surge, marking major shift for GOP

    The Republican Party has long been panned by its detractors as the party of big money and big donors -- but donation patterns have changed measurably under President Trump, a Fox News analysis of campaign finance data shows. Sixty-one percent of money raised directly by the Trump campaign this election cycle came from small donors (donations under $200), according to Federal Election Commission figures. That is similar to the proportion Trump raised during the 2016 election cycle, when 65 percent of donations were under $200. And this is dramatically higher than previous Republican nominees. Mitt Romney raised 26 percent of...

    A certain former president and first lady have made their mark in Hollywood. “The Obamas settling into new role as Netflix producers,” said The Hollywood Reporter — referring of course to former President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama, who signed an exclusive production deal with Netflix some 15 months ago, then formed a Los Angeles-based production company called Higher Ground. More significantly, the couple is now readying their first release, a documentary titled “American Factory,” which chronicles the culture clash between Chinese and American workers in a U.S. auto glass factory. It is set to debut on Netflix before 139...

    Wait a second...isn't foreign influence on our elections supposed to be a bad thing?  Illegal, in fact? The head of Turkey's state-run television service is openly urging Turks to donate to the campaign of Ilhan Omar, the anti-Semitic congresswoman from Minnesota.  JNS has the story: Tarek Cherkaoui, the manager of the Turkish state-run news channel TRT World's research center, wrote an article in April calling upon Turks to donate to the campaign fund of U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). The article was widely reprinted in the Turkish media. The article, written for the English-language website of the Turkish pro-government daily Yeni Şafak and published...

    FULL TITLE: Abortion-rights groups see donations soar as Alabama law draws attention from activists, 2020 candidates Washington (CNN)Donations to abortion-rights groups surged this week as presidential candidates, activists and even a group of Portland, Oregon, basketball fans reacted to Alabama enacting the nation's strictest abortion law. In four days, the National Network of Abortion Funds raised $504,000 from more than 18,000 people to help fund abortions, according to executive director Yamani Hernandez. That's nearly double the 9,500 donations the group receives annually, she said. "I feel like people have our backs," said Hernandez, whose organization supports 76 other funds in...

    In the same article, the Post also reports on a backlash against this amazing generosity. A leader of the Yellow Vest movement says that if donors can give so much money to rebuild Notre Dame, “they should stop telling us there is no money to help deal with the social emergency.” But the donations to Notre Dame are coming from private donors. No one denies they have money. It’s the French government that’s running out. Some in the Yellow Vest movement probably favor the government taking yet more money from the wealthy “to help deal with the social emergency.” That’s...
