Harvard Backs Down, Complies With Trump’s Demand to Return $8.6M Aidby Shifra on April 23, 2020
Looks like Harvard University does the right thing…after being exposed for their shenanigans. Case in point: Although Harvard U. has an endowment of $40 Billion, Harvard dining hall workers lost their jobs last month. They were reinstated several days later, after being called out by Free Beacon. Via Townhall. After receiving a lashing from President Trump at Tuesday’s White House briefing, Harvard University announced Wednesday it will reject $9 million it received in Wuhan coronavirus relief. The taxpayer funding is part of the CARES Act, which was passed to get emergency funding to the most economically vulnerable. Harvard has a $40 billion endowment…. Given where the virus originated, the funding was especially egregious. In January, Harvard’s top chemist, Charles Lieber,...
Dem Candidates Try To ‘Cash In’ With Debate Quote T-Shirtsby Shifra on July 1, 2019
As reported in the Daily Mail, Kamala Harris, who made her “that little girl was me” remark while attacking Biden on Thursday, began selling t-shirts emblazoned with her comment… on Friday. So the ‘spontaneous’ Biden attack-comment seems pre-planned and phony. Anyway, I want a t-shirt, but with this caption: “I Watched Four Hours Of The Dem Debates, And All I Got Was A Migraine Headache” Via BPR. Congressman Eric Swalwell followed Senator Kamala Harris’ lead by peddling his own T-shirts from the dig he made to Vice President Joe Biden during the first Democratic presidential debate, when he urged the 76-year-old to “pass the torch.” Surprisingly, few liberals slammed Swalwell for his ageist insult. While Swalwell’s jab fell flat with...
Donor to Hillary Nonprofit Finds He Can’t Cancel $10.48 Monthly Contributionby Shifra on April 29, 2018
Doesn’t this guy know that Hillary was “dead broke” ? Via Fox News. A Seattle man who recently sought to end his monthly donation to a Hillary Clinton nonprofit group ran into a small roadblock: There was no way to cancel his contribution, according to a report. Corey Koscielniak, 29, wanted to stop his $10.48 recurring tithe to Onward Together, the politican action organization Clinton formed after her 2016 election defeat, because the group disclosed little information on how it spent the money, he told the Seattle Times. “Onward Together (OT) accepts payment information, but provides no ability to alter or cancel donations once the initial donation is received,” Koscielniak wrote in his complaint to the Washington state Attorney General’s...
Freeloading Ex-Prez: Taxpayers to Pay $1.1M Expenses for Obama in 2018by Shifra on September 1, 2017
Here’s an idea: How ‘bout having Obama pay for his own expenses? At $250,000 per speech, four speeches would just about cover it all. Via Washington Times. Former President Barack Obama is about to become the most expensive ex-president, costing taxpayers $1,153,000 next year, according to a new Congressional Research Service memo looking at the official allowances for the five living former chief executives. His $1,153,000 budget request for 2018 is more than $100,000 higher than George W. Bush’s request for next year and nearly $200,000 more than Bill Clinton’s expected budget. George H.W. Bush is slated to get $942,000, while Jimmy Carter will get less than half that, at just $456,000. Every former president gets an office, expenses and,...
Leftist Activist Exploits Hurricane Harvey to Fund ‘Community Organizing’by Shifra on August 31, 2017
Linda Sarsour is a Leftist activist who co-chaired the Women’s March on DC. She is also a well-known terrorist-apologist who constantly spews her venom against Israel. Last year, after a St. Louis Missouri Jewish cemetery was vandalized, Sarsour set up a crowdfunding campaign to raise $20,000 to repair the cemetery damage, and she was “delighted” when she raised over $100K. However, as reported by The Forward and other Jewish news outlets, the cemetery has not received any money for repairs. And now, this: Via National Review. Linda Sarsour seems unable to pass up any opportunity to make a quick buck, even at the expense of vulnerable Americans. Her latest target? Caring people all across the country who are looking for...
Bargain of the Week: $2,375.95 To Hear Hillary Whine, er, Talk About… Herselfby Shifra on August 31, 2017
Wait, there’s more: Front-row seat, signed copy of What The Hell Happened, and a photo op with Hillary! No word, yet, if this package deal includes a signed copy of the photo of her shoe, left on the curb when she was shoved into a van after collapsing on a NYC street last year. Via Fox News. Starting next month, the former Democratic presidential nominee embarks on a tour across the United States and Canada to promote “What Happened,” her memoir about running against Donald Trump for president. And the price for access is a throwback to campaign fundraisers. For $2,375.95 (or $3,000 in Canadian dollars), Clinton fans in Toronto can obtain a “VIP platinum ticket” for her Sept. 28...
NEA Grants $1M to Choreographed Traffic Jams, Climate-Change Playsby Shifra on June 29, 2017
$35,000 for “exhibits” on the Pulse nightclub and Seattle shootings. But no mention of “terrorism.” They can all hold hands, sing Kumbaya, and rip off the government. The entire list of absurdities, er, projects, is listed in the Free Beacon, including: ….Numerous grants are dedicated to the issue of climate change. The Yerba Buena Center for the Arts received $60,000 for performances and workshops on climate change and a curriculum for public schools on “food justice.”…. A dance performance by custodial workers is costing taxpayers $20,000. “Featuring the skilled movement of a group of campus employees, such as dishwashers, cooks, custodial staff, physical plant employees, or grounds and maintenance crews, this multidisciplinary performance will highlight the work life of campus...
Obama Warns of Danger of ‘Income Inequality’… While Giving $7,700-A-Minute Speechby Shifra on June 8, 2017
How did we manage to survive eight years of this preening, arrogant, finger-wagging hypocritical jerk? Via Breitbart. Former President Barack Obama spoke to the Chamber of Commerce in Montreal on Tuesday, warning against income inequality and the concentration of wealth—remarks from a man who reportedly commanded $400,000 a speech, or $7,700-a-minute at that rate, for his Canadian speech. Obama said the world must do more to combat income inequality, noting that the concentration of wealth fans fears that governments exist solely to benefit the powerful, NBC reported. “That’s a recipe for more cynicism and more polarization, less trust in our institutions and less trust in each other,” Obama said. “And it’s part of what leads people to turn to populist...
Chelsea Clinton To Be Honored for Her ‘Humanitarian Work’by Shifra on March 20, 2017
“Humanitarian work” ? Is that what they call “living in a $10M apartment” and “getting cushy jobs for top dollar with no visible talent” now? Via Free Beacon. Former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton will be honored by Variety magazine next month for her humanitarian work along with five other women. Variety announced Monday the six women who have been selected to be Variety‘s Lifetime Impact Honorees for their humanitarian work: Clinton; actresses Jessica Chastain, Blake Lively, and Audra McDonald; CBS host Gayle King; and media executive Shari Redstone…. Clinton, vice chair of the Clinton Foundation, will be celebrated for her work with Alliance for a Healthier Generation, which says its goal is to “reduce the prevalence of childhood obesity and...
Chelsea Clinton Co-Authors Book No One Is Talking About… Including Chelseaby Shifra on February 15, 2017
Wow, catchy title…Not: Governing Global Health: Who Runs the World and Why? Was Chelsea planning the launch of this book to coincide with her mother winning the election? And, was she planning to cash in with a boatload of money for the Clinton Global Initiative? Yeah, probably just a coincidence… Via Heat Street. Last week a new book was published co-written by Chelsea Clinton and entitled Governing Global Health: Who Runs the World and Why? Almost no one is buying the Clinton title, co-authored by Devi Sridhar, a Global Public Health Professor at the University of Edinburgh. It currently stands at No. 74,374 on the Amazon Bestsellers Chart. The book profiles global health organizations and the work they do. Chelsea...
Sad Story: Clinton Foundation Now Begging For Moneyby Shifra on January 2, 2017
Gosh, are Hill and Bill dead broke again? Via Heat Street: ….It will be interesting to see if past Clinton Foundation donors will continue their generous giving in the years to come. Hillary’s shocking defeat in the presidential election means that no member of the Clinton dynasty currently holds, or is running for, a powerful government position. The foundation has already started reaching out to donors to ask for money, the New York Post reports. Clinton Foundation chairman Bruce Lindsey announced in an email to supporters Wednesday that former President Bill Clinton would personally match donations up to $200,000 before the end of the year. “As we prepare for a new year, President Clinton and Chelsea remain dedicated to our...
Hillary Donors Upset They Didn’t Make Cut for Thank-You Partyby Shifra on December 11, 2016
Maybe they could get t-shirts with the inscription: I donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Hillary Campaign, and all I got was this lousy t-shirt. Just a suggestion. Via Washington Post. There are big political donors, and then there are really big donors. Hillary Clinton’s first major political event since her defeat last month will be a thank-you party for those really, really big donors — the people who brought in many hundreds of thousands of dollars for her unsuccessful Democratic presidential bid — Democrats familiar with the lavish event said Wednesday. The Dec. 15 evening gala at the Plaza Hotel will be held in the iconic “grand ballroom,” one of New York’s most opulent spaces. It is...
Obama’s Army of Public Relations Staffers Costs U.S. Taxpayers $500M Per Yearby Tammy on October 5, 2016
You read that right– half a BILLION dollars to spread his BS. And we’re paying for it. This madness has GOT to stop. Via Washington Times. President Obama hired hundreds of additional public relations employees to sell his administration’s policies, at a total cost to taxpayers of nearly half a billion dollars a year, the government’s chief watchdog reported Wednesday. Mr. Obama added some 667 PR staffers between 2008, the last full year under his predecessor, and 2011, when staffing levels peaked at 5,238 — a spike of 15 percent during those years. The number has since slipped, but there were still nearly 5,100 PR staffers in the administration in 2014, according to figures from the Government Accountability Office. That...
Obama Caught: After Denying He Knew, Used Pseudonym in Emails to Clintonby Tammy on September 24, 2016
Lying peas in a pod. In newly released FBI documents, we have learned that not only did Obama know about Hillary’s private email server, he communicated with her on it and used a fake name. The only reason to do that, of course, would be if he knew it was so vulnerable that others may eventually see the exchange. All of these people are menaces who must be sent a message in November. The good news is, we can send a message to these grifters and start on the road to recovery at the same time. Via Daily Mail. President Obama used a code name to communicate with Hillary Clinton on her controversial email server in 2012 – directly contradicting...
Michelle Obama, ‘Woman of The People,’ Wears $4,200 Gucci Dress to Co-Host ‘Ellen’by Shifra on September 14, 2016
US Magazine says Michelle looked “out of this world” in her Gucci number. Agreed: She looked like a visitor from the planet Krypton. Or something… But at least we can hope that now she is finally “proud of her country.” Via American Mirror. First Lady Michelle Obama has often been sold by the mainstream as a woman of the people. But, when Michelle co-hosted the Ellen Show, she wore a Gucci dress that cost over $4,000…. Related.
