    Pay-to-Play: Republicans have long suspected that foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation made during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as President Obama’s secretary of state and in her run-up to the 2016 election were likely tied to influence-peddling on the part of the former first couple, and now newly released tax records validate their suspicions. The documents show a dramatic drop-off in donations to the Clinton Foundation after Hillary’s November 2016 loss to POTUS Donald Trump, a race most political analysts had predicted she would win in a landslide. The document release comes amid an ongoing probe by the Justice Department pertaining...

    **SNIP** He noted that Waters was the subject of a House Ethics Committee investigation in 2010 over a meeting she arranged between the Treasury Department and representatives of OneUnited bank, where her husband was a notable shareholder. OneUnited went on to obtain $12 million in federal bailout funding. The ethics charges against Waters were dropped in 2012. "By the time Maxine Waters scheduled the meeting with the Treasury secretary, her husband owned approximately $350,000 in OneUnited stock, all of which would have likely gone down the drain without the bailout money she helped secure," Hilton said. "How lovely for Maxine...

    Breitbart ^ | 10-11-2018 | Justin Carusco
    While Hollywood constantly preaches diversity, some of the entertainment industry’s most powerful and influential executives have given almost exclusively to Democrat candidates and left-wing PACs. According to The Hollywood Reporter, nearly 100 percent of the millions donated from the top executives in Hollywood went to Democrats or PACs working to elect Democrats. Of the more than $4 million in federal donations made by the top Hollywood executives and entertainers, 99.7 percent went to Democrats and Democratic-leaning political action committees or organizations, according to a Hollywood Reporter data review of Federal Election Commission records. Only three members of this year’s THR...

    Thus, rather than let animals at least live in “no-kill shelters”, it created “kill shelters” to relieve allegedly suffering animals from suffering in a “no-kill shelter” by killing them.  PETA supports kill shelters and has one at its headquarters in Norfolk, Virginia.In 2017 alone, almost two-thirds of the nearly 1000 dogs, and 80% of the nearly 1500 cats that PETA brought into its shelter were killed.  Those numbers are actually an improvement from 2005 to 2012, where 90% to 97.3% of animals were put down.So zealous is PETA to murder animals that it stole a 9-year-old’s pet Chihuahua because they...

    The DNC has voted not to accept any donations from fossil fuel companies. From HuffPost: The resolution ― proposed by Christine Pelosi, a party activist and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s daughter ― bars the organization from accepting contributions from corporate political action committees tied to the oil, gas and coal industries. The executive committee voted unanimously to approve the motion. “We talk about how climate change is real and climate change is a planetary emergency, what we need to do is stop taking money from the institutions that have created this crisis,” said RL Miller, president of the super...

    Clinton Foundation gets another $5.5m from NZ taxpayers A subsidiary of the controversial Clinton Foundation is set to receive US$3.9m (NZ$5.5m) in taxpayer money in 2018/19, the New Zealand Taxpayers’ Union can confirm. This is in addition to NZ$8m given to the organisation since 2014. Taxpayers’ Union Executive Director Jordan Williams says, “The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) claims that the organisation in question, the Clinton Health Access Initiative, is a separate entity. This is absurd – the Clinton Foundation appoints the organisation’s directors, making it a subsidiary in legal terms.” “The Foundation is currently under investigation by...
  • Rosie O’Donnell’s Campaign Donations To Dems Went Over Legal Limit

    NY Post ^ | 05/05/18 | Anna Sanders
    Rosie O’Donnell made illegally over-sized campaign donations to at least five Democratic federal candidates, according to a Post analysis of campaign filings. The liberal comedian has regularly broken Federal Election Commission rules limiting the total any one person can give to an individual candidate at $2,700 per election. The limit applies separately to primaries, runoffs and general elections. “Nothing nefarious,” the outspoken star and Donald Trump arch-nemesis wrote in an email to the Post. “I was not choosing to over donate. “If 2700 is the cut off — [candidates] should refund the money,” she wrote. “I don’t look to see...

    When Democrats talk about evil "Republican billionaires" like Sheldon Adelson and the dreaded Koch Brothers, it's always in apocalyptic terms. They are trying to "buy" elections and hide their influence with "dark money" schemes. Somehow, Democrats never get around to mentioning their own billionaires and the massive amounts of money contributed to Democratic causes by the likes of Tom Steyer, Mark Cuban, and J.B. Pritzker, who is running for governor of Illinois. And, of course, George Soros. Soros's reach is international. He has a huge network of international do-gooder organizations that promote his pet causes. And he is a reliable,...
  • After US cuts, Palestinian refugee agency seeks donations

    The U.N. agency that serves Palestinian refugees and their descendants said Wednesday it would launch a global fundraising appeal in hopes of making up for funding cuts announced by the United States. The Trump administration on Tuesday suspended $65 million for UNRWA, demanding it undertake a “fundamental re-examination.” The U.S. provides roughly one-third of UNRWA’s budget, and the agency has warned that it now faces the “most dramatic financial crisis” in its nearly 70-year history. The agency provides health care, education and social services to 5 million Palestinians across the Middle East. UNRWA’s secretary-general, Pierre Krähenbühl, said the fundraising appeal...
