Donald Trump and the RNC Refund +$135 Million in Donations Over 2021 Donation Scam

Via The New York Times:

“The aggressive fund-raising tactics that former President Donald J. Trump deployed late in last year’s presidential campaign have continued to spur an avalanche of refunds into 2021, with Mr. Trump, the Republican Party and their shared accounts returning $12.8 million to donors in the first six months of the year, newly released federal records show.

The refunds were some of the biggest outlays that Mr. Trump made in 2021 as he has built up his $102 million political war chest — and amounted to roughly 20 percent of the $56 million he and his committees raised online so far this year. Trailing in the polls and facing a cash crunch last September,

Mr. Trump’s political operation began opting online donors into automatic recurring contributions by prechecking a box on its digital donation forms to take a withdrawal every week. Donors would have to notice the box and uncheck it to opt out of the donation. A second prechecked box took out another donation, known as a “money bomb.”

In the last year alone Trump and the RNC have been forced to refund over $135 million in donations received via the scam.

A sheep and his fleece are soon parted.

There Goes All The Fun! – Grifter Franklin Graham Tells Followers To Pray Against “Perversion, Pluralism, Profanity, Pornography”

Via Franklin Graham’s Facebook page:

Heavenly Father, we come before You today to ask Your forgiveness and seek Your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says: ‘Woe to those who call evil good,’ but that’s exactly what we’ve done.


* We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and inverted our values.
* We confess that we have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and called it moral pluralism.
* We have worshipped other gods and called it multiculturalism.
* We have endorsed perversion and called it an alternative lifestyle.
* We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.
* We have neglected the needy and called it self-preservation…
* We have killed our unborn and called it choice.
* We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable.
* We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building esteem.
* We have abused power and called it political savvy.
* We have coveted our neighbor’s possessions and called it ambition.
* We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression.
* We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.


Search us, O God, and know our hearts today; try us and see if there be some wicked way in us; cleanse us from every sin and set us free. I ask it in the name of Your Son, the Living Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen!

The worst obscenity I know is that someone who makes million dollars a year peddling imaginary ailments, imaginary cures, homophobia, and hate and never goes to prison.

LGBT Hate Groups Received Millions of Dollars in COVID-19 PPP Small Business Loans

LGBT Hate Groups Received Millions of Dollars in COVID-19 PPP Small Business Loans

It has been exposed that LGBT hate groups, anti-immigration groups and anti-Muslim groups have received MILLIONS of dollars in government-aid backed Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) , intended for small businesses with 10 or fewer employees that have been harmed by the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic.

Via The New Civil Rights Movement:

The groups include the anti-Muslim organization The Center for Security Policy; the two anti-immigrant groups, the Center for Immigration Studies and the Federation for American Immigration Reform; and three rabidly anti-LGBTQ groups, the American Family Association (AFA), Liberty Counsel and the Pacific Justice Institute (PJI).

The  Liberty Counsel received somewhere between $350,000 and $1 million from the PPP program while listing they had no jobs to retain . It is unclear what Liberty Counsel was planning to do with its hundreds of thousands in government loans but I am sure we can all guess.

The largest loan went to the anti-LGBT hate group the American Family Association, which was allotted between $1 million and $2 million to support 124 jobs.

In its 2017 tax filing, which is the latest available, the AFA reported revenues exceeding $18.4 million, net assets of about $30 million.

In 2010 AFA’s most notorious wingnut Bryan Fischer blamed gay men for being Nazis and causing the holocaust.

“Homosexuality gave us Adolph Hitler, and homosexuals in the military gave us the Brown Shirts, the Nazi war machine and six million dead Jews.” — Bryan Fischer, AFA director of issue analysis for government and public policy, 2010.

Other AFA statements on homosexuality include:

“This [policy] means a man can simply say he ‘feels like a woman today’ and enter the women’s restroom … even if young girls and women are already in there. Target’s policy is exactly how sexual predators get access to their victims. And with Target publicly boasting that men can enter women’s bathrooms, where do you think predators are going to go?”
— Tim Wildmon, April 2016.

“Homosexuality is a poor and dangerous choice, and has been proven to lead to a litany of health hazards to not only the individuals but also society as a whole.” — AFA Action Alert, July 20, 2012.

“The homosexual movement is a progressive outgrowth of the sexual revolution of the past 40 years and will lead to the normalization of even more deviant behavior.” —Don Wildmon, AFA website.

“Homosexuals are rarely monogamous and have as many as 300 to 1,000 sexual partners over the course of a lifetime. … [T]he risk of sexual abuse in a homosexual household is much greater than in a heterosexual household.” – Bryan Fischer Web post, “The Truth about Gay Marriage and Civil Unions,” 2006

Trump Impeachment Lawyer Jay Sekulow Supports Criminalizing Homosexuality

Trump Impeachment Lawyer Jay Sekulow Supports Criminalizing Homosexuality and Scammed Millions from the Poor

Right Wing Watch reports that in the 1990’s anti-gay Christian crypt keeper Pat Robertson of the Christian Broadcasting Network placed Donald Trump impeachment team lawyer Jay Sekulow to run Robertson’s newly founded American Center for Law and Justice.

Robertson created the ACLJ as an anti-ACLU type group. Sekulow and the ACLJ opposed to laws protecting the rights of LGBT people in the U.S. and abroad. The ACLJ argued on behalf of state laws criminalizing gay sex that were overturned by the Supreme Court in 2003. Sekulow has said that the state has a “compelling interest to ban the act of homosexuality.”

In Africa, ACLJ worked to shape constitutional language in Zimbabwe, where it has fought to maintain criminalization of homosexuality.

Mother Jones report:

Sekulow and his son Jordan opened affiliated offices of the ACLJ in Africa to lobby politicians to “take the Christian’s views into consideration as they draft legislation and policies,” according to ACLJ’s website. ACLJ’s Zimbabwe office has pushed an agenda that backs outlawing same-sex marriage and making sure that homosexuality “remain[s] a criminal activity.” (Zimbabwe had outlawed homosexuality in 2006.)

Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe is among the most ruthless dictators in the world—but in 2010 ACLJ-Zimbabwe’s chairman, pastor Alex Chisango, led Mugabe and others in prayer to kick off Zimbabwe’s constitutional reform drive. ACLJ wanted to ensure that, whatever else changed in the country’s constitution, homosexuality remained illegal and same-sex marriage was banned.

Sekulow also has a long history of grifting money from the poor in the name of God as reported by the Guardian:

Documents obtained by the Guardian show Sekulow approved plans to push poor and jobless people to donate money to his Christian nonprofit, which since 2000 has steered more than $60 million to Sekulow, his family and their businesses.

Telemarketers for the nonprofit, Christian Advocates Serving Evangelism (Case), were instructed in contracts signed by Sekulow to urge people who pleaded poverty or said they were out of work to dig deep for a “sacrificial gift”.

“I can certainly understand how that would make it difficult for you to share a gift like that right now,” they told retirees who said they were on fixed incomes and had “no extra money” – before asking if they could spare “even $20 within the next three weeks”.

Other scripts that Sekulow contact representatives used to raise money siad that money was needed for Case’s “massive campaign to repeal and replace Obamacare” and that the “Christian” US was under siege from both Muslim terrorists and a liberal political elite led by President Obama supposedly desperate to increase the national abortion rate.

America's Largest Christian Charity Gave Over $56 Million To Notorious Anti-LGBT Hate Groups

BUSTED! – America’s Largest Christian Charity Gave Over $56 Million To Notorious Anti-LGBT Hate Groups

The National Christian Foundation which “helps Christian families like yours send more to their favorite charities and connect with the larger movement of generosity taking place around the world.” raised over $1.5 billion in tax-exempt donations in 2017 and it has now been discovered some of that money has been funneled to some of America’s most notorious anti-LGBT hate groups.

Via Sludge:

The nation’s eighth-largest public charity is pouring tens of millions of dollars each year into a number of mostly anti-LGBT hate groups, a Sludge investigation shows. According to the three most recent available tax filings — which cover 2015-17 — it has donated $56.1 million on behalf of its clients to 23 nonprofits identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as hate groups.

By far the biggest recipient of NCF donations is Alliance Defending Freedom, a large network of Christian extremist lawyers who have supported criminalizing homosexuality, sterilizing transgender people, and claimed that gay men are pedophiles. The group recently came out against congressional Democrats’ Equality Act, which would ban discrimination against LGBTQ Americans.

Alliance Defending Freedom took in $49.2 million from NCF from 2015-17. ADF received $46.3 million in contributions and grants during the 2016 fiscal year (from July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016). It got $16.8 million from NCF in the calendar year of 2015, meaning that, if these years were aligned, NCF’s donations would have represented over one-third of ADF’s annual contributions

The “Christian” Shyster Lawyer group Alliance Defending Freedom has been given more than $49.2 million from NCF from 2015-17. And Tony Perkin’s anti-LGBT hate group Family Research Council, which has, accepted over $5.3 million from NCF from 2015-17. 

American Family Association Hate Group Starts Selling "Christian" Soap

American Family Association Hate Group Starts Selling “Christian” Soap

Via American Family Association president Tim Wildmon:

What if I told you that you could clean your family’s laundry and help reach the next generation at the same time? That opportunity is here – through a company called Redeem Clean. The company was founded by Lynn Ingram and Jim Duncan specifically to help American Family Association. I first met Lynn and his wife on our Spiritual Heritage Tour of Washington, D.C., last September. Lynn pulled me aside during the tour and told me how he listened faithfully to our American Family Radio station in Abilene, Texas, and that he and his wife were long-time financial supporters of AFA.

He told me how much he believed in what we are doing and shared our passion to see Christianity impact America. Then Lynn told me he believed God had put an idea in his heart that could help AFA/AFR financially for years to come. Needless to say – I was all ears! They had started a company named Redeem Clean and created a laundry detergent; if AFA wanted to offer it to supporters, the majority of profits above and beyond the costs of making the detergent would go to further the mission of AFA.

We have decided to take advantage of their generous offer! More specifically, we agreed that the proceeds from this product will go directly to influence the next generation with the gospel of Jesus Christ through Engage – a division of AFA created to reach Millennials (roughly ages 20-35). Alarmingly, trends reveal that this age group is slowly wandering from the basic truths of God’s word. It is time that we go on the offensive!

 The three product package sells for $30.

 

For those of you who don’t know…..

Initially founded as the National Federation for Decency, the American Family Association (AFA) originally focused on what it considered indecent television programming and pornography. The AFA says it promotes “traditional moral values” in media. A large part of that work involves “combating the homosexual agenda” through various means, including publicizing companies that have pro-gay policies and organizing boycotts against them.

In Its Own Words

“Homosexuality is a poor and dangerous choice, and has been proven to lead to a litany of health hazards to not only the individuals but also society as a whole.”
–AFA Action Alert, July 20, 2012

“[Islam] is, in fact, a religion of war, violence, intolerance, and physical persecution of non-Muslims.”
–Tim Wildmon, March 6, 2012

“The homosexual movement is a progressive outgrowth of the sexual revolution of the past 40 years and will lead to the normalization of even more deviant behavior.”
– Don Wildmon, AFA website, 1999 (still posted as of 2011).

“Homosexuality gave us Adolph Hitler, and homosexuals in the military gave us the Brown Shirts, the Nazi war machine and six million dead Jews.”
– Bryan Fischer, AFA director of issue analysis for government and public policy, 2010

“If President Obama, Congressional Democrats, and homosexual activists get their wish, your son or daughter may be forced to share military showers and barracks with active and open homosexuals who may very well view them with sexual interest.”
– AFA press release, February 2010

“Homosexuality is not only harmful to homosexuals themselves, but also to children and to society.”
– Stephen Bennett, AFA writer, 2004

“As with smoking, homosexual behavior’s ‘second hand’ effects threaten public health….Thus, individuals who choose to engage in homosexual behavior threaten not only their own lives, but the lives of the general population.”
– Gary Glenn, president of Michigan chapter of AFA, 2001

“[T]he homosexual lifestyle is characterized by anonymous sexual encounters and celebration of sexual obsession and perversion unparalleled in any other social group.”
– Richard Howe, “Homosexuality in America,” AFA publication, 1994

In 2012, Tom Wildmon had notorious anti-gay pastor Patrick Wooden, along with the FRC’s Tony Perkins, on the AFA’s “Today’s Issues” segment of their American Family Radio (AFR). Both Perkins and Wildmon expressed admiration for Wooden, who is perhaps best known for claiming that gay men have to wear diapers or “butt plugs” because they lose control of their bowels. He has also called homosexuality “deviant,” “immoral,” and “anti-human.”

FCC Votes To Dismantle Net Neutrality Rules In 3-2 Vote

 

The New York Times

The Federal Communications Commission voted on Thursday to dismantle landmark rules regulating the businesses that connect consumers to the internet, granting broadband companies power to potentially reshape Americans’ online experiences.

The agency scrapped so-called net neutrality regulations that prohibited broadband providers from blocking websites or charging for higher-quality service or certain content. The federal government will also no longer regulate high-speed internet delivery as if it were a utility, like phone services.

The action reversed the agency’s 2015 decision, during the Obama administration, to better protect Americans as they have migrated to the internet for most communications.

Ajit Pai, the chairman of the commission, said the rollback of the rules would eventually help consumers because broadband providers like AT&T and Comcast could offer people a wider variety of service options. Mr. Pai was joined in the 3-to-2 vote by his two fellow Republican commissioners.

Republicans are why we can’t have nice things.

FUCK YOU FCC!

Senate Republicans Pass Tax Scam Bill, Cuts Health Care and Gives Big Biz Tax Breaks

 

The Pepublican controlled Senate passed the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act,” a massive overhaul of the tax code, 51-49 at 1:50 am Saturday morning after last-minute changes and an array of  GOP senators’ wish-lists were added to the bill.

The Senate’s tax scam In all,  permanently cuts the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 20 percent, and repeals Obamacare’s individual mandate, estimated to leave 13 million fewer insured over the next decade. The tax act will lowers tax rate for most Americans until 2026, overwhelmingly advantaging the country’s wealthiest.

Republicans are banking  that massive tax cuts for corporations and the upper class will bring back jobs and investments, to grow the economy at historic rates.  A plan much like the Reagan era’s trickle down economics which was a massive failure.

“If I’m wrong, we’ll pay a price. If I’m right, it will make sense,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told reporters.

Democrats spent hours objecting to the secretive process of the last minute changes to the tax act as they waited for Republicans to finalize the bill.  As the night dragged on, very few lawmakers had seen the legislative text, aside from sections that were being leaked or otherwise shared.

Early in the evening, Hawaii Democrat Brian Schatz posted on Twitter to ask, “Does anyone know a Republican lobbyist so I can get my hands on a copy of this bill?”

Democrats spent hours objecting to the opaque process Friday as they waited for Republicans to finalize the bill. As the night dragged on, very few lawmakers had seen the legislative text, aside from sections that were being leaked or otherwise shared.

Early in the evening, Hawaii Democrat Brian Schatz posted on Twitter to ask, “Does anyone know a Republican lobbyist so I can get my hands on a copy of this bill?

Now with the bill passed in the Senate, for both chambers of Congress to come together to hash out the differences between their bills.

Because despite months of negotiations between top House and Senate members and members of Trump’s administration — a working group dubbed the “Big Six” — Republicans in the House and Senate came out with two drastically different bills neither of which benefit the average american citizen.

 

KENTUCKY: Scamvangelist Ark Encounter Sells Park To Its Own Non-Profit for $10 To Avoid Paying $700k Taxes

The group that owns the theme park Ark Encounter have sold the park to their nonprofit affiliates for 10 dollars to avoid paying taxes, according to a report Monday by theLexington Herald-Leader. The Christian theme park in Williamstown, Kentucky is owned by creationist Ken Ham and features a life-sized recreation of Noah’s Ark.

Ark Encounter LLC sold the park’s land on June 28 to its nonprofit affiliate, Crosswater Canyon, for ten dollars, just a day before the city sent a letter rejecting the organization’s request to be exempted from a new safety tax because of its religious affiliation.

By selling the land to its nonprofit counterpart, the group has claimed that the park is a non-profit establishment and not subject to the new safety tax passed by city officials. The safety tax, if implemented by the city, would collect 50 cents of every entry ticket sold on $40 adult tickets and $28 children’s tickets. The theme park pulls in an estimated 1.4 million visitors a year, which, when the safety tax was imposed, means the company would owe the city of Williamstown approximately $700,000. – The International Business Times

Ark Encounter went through a multi-year negotiation process to get state and local tax incentives approved, including an $18 million sales tax rebate, and a tax increment financing deal that gives them back 75 percent of property taxes due on the increase in land assessments for 30 years.

When Jesus was asked whether his followers should pay taxes, he said:

“Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.”

He didn’t say, use deceitful tricks to avoid paying Caesar.

 

SCAM ALERT: Chicago Dyke March Shamelessly Crowdfunds for a “Self Care Retreat” After Barring Jewish Lesbians

After asking three women to leave who were carrying Jewish Pride flags last weekend during the Chicago Dyke March, organizers of the event have started a crowfunding campaign for a “self-care retreat.” They are trying to raise  $5,000 they say to go towards taking “a much needed retreat to rest, re-energize & be in a space of pure love” after “organizers and supporters, mostly queer and trans folks of color, have received countless threats of violence and aggression.”

The story goes that last week three participants in the march were forced to leave because they were carrying rainbow flags emblazoned with the Star of David, a symbol of Judaism. Organizers “were telling me to leave because my flag was a trigger to people that they found offensive,” Laurel Grauer told Windy City Times. “Prior to this [march] I had never been harassed or asked to leave and I had always carried the flag with me.”

According to the organizers, however, they issued a statement saying Grauer and other women bearing the flags were expelled not because of the flags, but because they were “expressing Zionist views that go directly against the march’s anti-racist core values.” Zionism involves the support of a Jewish state in Israel, but some, including the march organizers, believe the Israeli government is oppressive of the nation’s Palestinian residents. “The group in question was heard disrupting chants, replacing the word ‘Palestine’ with ‘everywhere,’ saying: ‘From everywhere to Mexico, border walls have got to go,'” the statement continued.

The ” threats|, the Collective claim have not documented or presented and were most likely backlash on social media.

Many are not happy that the CDM is raising funds for a vacation off the back of last weeks events.

As a Chicagoan it’s really painful, especially,” said Celia Sax, an organizer for Planned Parenthood as well as various Pride and Jewish events. “It’s demoralizing.” Sax feels said campaign puts salt in the wound. “It’s an additional layer of dehumanization,” she said. 

Sax also was critical that the campaign funded a retreat rather than activism. “They could raise money for human rights, for reproductive rights, etc., but they are wasting it on self-care rather than any cause,” she said. “That is beyond awful.”

Activist Ilana Cohen also deemed the call for funds distasteful. “I can’t even fundraise $1,400 for surgery on my service dog’s eyes, and they want a retreat for being anti-Semitic,” Cohen said.
