Colin Kaepernick Donated $25K to Group Honoring Killer on FBI’s Most Wanted Terror LIST!

Published

on

As the controversy surrounding former San Francisco Forty-niners third-string quarterback Colin Kaepernick continues in the face of Kaepernick being named the spokesman for Nike’s 30th year anniversary for the “Just Do It” campaign, the anger of the American people continues to swell.

It was revealed that Kaepernick made a $25,000 donation to a charitable group honoring convicted cop killer named after former Black Liberation Army member Assata Shakur, Chicago-based Assata’s Daughters in 2017 as part of a $1 million charitable pledge.

The Daily Mail reports –

“Colin Kaepernick’s $25,000 donation to a charitable group honoring a convicted cop killer has been revealed.

Kaepernick’s foundation made the donation to Chicago-based Assata’s Daughters, named after former Black Liberation Army member Assata Shakur, in April as part of a $1million charitable pledge.

Shakur was convicted of first-degree murder in the 1973 shooting death of New Jersey state trooper Werner Foerster and sentenced to life in prison, but staged a daring jailbreak and now lives as a fugitive in Cuba.

Kaepernick, who is well known for his protests against police during the national anthem as a former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, made the donation as part of his pledge to donate $100,000 a month for 10 months to ‘organizations working in oppressed communities’.

Assata’s Daughters was founded in 2015 to ‘develop and train young people, ages 4-19, in the Black queer feminist tradition and in the spirit of Assata,’ according to the group’s website.

‘We prioritize this work to help the current momentum of the Black Lives Matter movement to carry on into the future,’ the statement continues.

Kaepernick’s foundation specified that $2,500 of the donation would go to Cop Watch, a program that trains volunteers to follow and video police officers.

Another $15,000 is earmarked for ‘teen workshops’.

Shakur, whose legal name is JoAnne Deborah Chesimard, has become a revered figure in some activist circles, despite currently lodging on the FBI’s Most Wanted list.

A former Black Panther who joined a more militant offshoot of the group, Shakur was already wanted on several charges when Trooper Foerster pulled over a car she was in for a broken taillight.

In a shootout, Foerster was killed and Shakur was wounded. Accounts differ as to whether she or another occupant of the car pulled the trigger, but she was successfully convicted of murder under aiding and abetting laws.

Shakur was sentenced to life in prison, but escaped in 1979 when members of the Black Liberation Army visited her behind bars with concealed handguns, took prison officials hostage and commandeered a van.

Though the two are not related, Shakur was godmother to rapper Tupac Shakur, whose stepfather was convicted of aiding her escape from prison.

Word of Kaepernick’s donation, which was first reported by the Washington Times, comes as the protest against police that he launched last year creates a national furor.

President Donald Trump last week blasted National Football League players who, imitating Kaepernick’s protest, kneel during the national anthem.

Players across the league responded in defiance, amplifying the protest and polarizing their fan base, many of whom saw the gesture as an insult to national symbols.

Shakur is believed to be living under political asylum in Cuba. The FBI warns that she should be considered armed and dangerous.”

Kaepernick’s grant to Assata’s foundation includes $2,500 for CopWatch, a program that trains volunteers to follow and video police. An additional $15,000 is included for teen training as part of the group’s commitment to “develop and train young people, ages 4-19, in the Black queer feminist tradition and in the spirit of Assata.”

Kaepernick included this contribution as part of a pledge he made last year to donate $1 million over a period of 10 months to “organizations working in oppressed communities.” To date, he has donated $900,000 in grants to 31 different organizations, many of which are social justice groups or advocacy groups pushing left of center agendas on issues like abortion, climate change, criminal-justice reform, and immigration.

According to the Washington Times contributions include – “$25,000 for 350.org, a climate-change group dedicated to fighting fossil fuels, and $25,000 for the Center for Reproductive Rights, a pro-choice advocacy organization.

The foundation gave $50,000 in December for a “health clinic partnership” at the now-defunct Dakota Access pipeline protest, and $25,000 to United We Dream in order to “keep DACA in force,” referring to President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals executive order.

The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback also has close ties to the Women’s March, including organizers Tamika D. Mallory, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour. The Kaepernick Foundation donated in June $25,000 to the Gathering for Justice NYC, headed by Ms. Perez, while Ms. Mallory and Ms. Sarsour appeared at the Aug. 24 pro-Kaepernick rally outside NFL headquarters.

Part of the Kaepernick Foundation’s $33,000 donation for the Lower East Side Girls Club was designated for travel and lodging for the Women’s March convention in October.

The Women’s March returned the favor with a shoutout Sunday on Facebook with a post saying, “#TaketheKnee [is] on the right side of history today — not just NFL players, but all of YOU. Show your support for the athletes siding with justice.”

The Women’s March has its own Shakur connection: The group came under fire in July for a tweet celebrating the birthday of ShakurShakur was placed on the FBI’s most-wanted list as a “domestic terrorist” who belonged to an “extremist group,” the Black Revolutionary Army.

The backlash included a tweet from Sen. Marco Rubio, Florida Republican, who said, ‘Unbelievable that anyone would idolize a cop killer.'”

Florida Dems Blindsided By Attorney General – She Demands Criminal Investigation

Published

on

In an effort that promises to go on at least until December to recount votes in Florida’s races for U.S. Senate, governor, and the state agriculture commissioner. Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi has now called for criminal investigations into ”irregularities” in the vote counting and the handling of ballots in two South Florida counties by Broward County’s Brenda Snipes who as is being reported now also was lucky enough to “find ballots” in 2012.

Here is more via Breitbart:

“Broward County, Florida election official Brenda Snipes — who is continuing to find new ballots in the recent statewide midterm elections for Governor and the U.S. Senate — was previously accused of finding ballots after an election in 2012.

Government Accountability Insititute (GAI) research director Eric Eggers exclusively told SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Tonight‘s Senior Editor-at-Large Rebecca Mansour that Snipes allegedly “found ballots” following an election in 2012.

Eggers said:

She’s also been accused of illegally opening ballots. The Florida GOP sued her for this and when they brought her to court, they said ‘Hey, your office is opening ballots outside the presence of the canvassing board … what’s your explanation?’ And again, the woman in charge of elections in Florida’s second most populous county argued she thought it was okay because her office didn’t understand the meaning of the word ‘canvassing.’ [Emphasis added]

This is also not the first time that her office has just found ballots. There was actually a canvassing official back in 2012 that complained that heading into a weekend, they were told there were about 150 votes left to be counted and then Monday morning, well actually there are about 950 votes still to go. [Emphasis added]

Eggers said there is “clearly an organized effort to manipulate and alter outcomes,” noting that in Miami-Dade County, about 108 provisional ballots were eliminated in the midterm election because they were from individuals who had voted twice.

In a recent piece for Breitbart News, Eggers reviewed Snipes’ history of allowing illegal aliens and felons to vote in elections in Broward County, along with her destroying of ballots.”

And here is even more on Snipes via Breitbart:

“On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Evening Edit,” Florida Lieutenant Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera (R) stated that nothing will be ruled out as a potential consequence for Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes (D) for her handling of the 2018 elections.

Lopez-Cantera said, “I’ll tell you going forward, nothing is going to be ruled out, as far as consequences for these horrible, horrible elections that she’s done here in Broward this year. Leading into the election, there were no indications, for the 2018 general election that there were going to be any problems. But, you know, she has shown herself to be clearly incompetent, and like I said, nothing will be taken off the table going forward.”

As of Tuesday Bondi had sent two separate letters to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Rick Swearingen and Secretary of State Ken Detzner where she expressed concern about FDLE’s comments Friday that it is working with Detzner’s office and will investigate reports of cases of voter fraud but had not received any reports as of Friday.

In a statement FDLE said an investigation had not been opened at this time.

“I am deeply troubled by your announcement that you will not pursue any investigation or inquiry into clearly documented irregularities of election officials in Broward and Palm Beach counties,” Bondi wrote Swearingen.

After Years of Shady Clinton Behavior, News Breaks On Biden Family That Destroy His Political Career

Published

on

...

* By

Although the fake news mainstream media is busy trying to sell the idea that former Vice President Joe Biden is leading when it comes to the 2020 Democrat nomination, even though he’s not officially in the running, the famed author of “Clinton Cash” might have something to say about that.

Chicks On The Right report that author Peter Schweizer said in a recent interview that he believes that corruption by the political elite will probably be the central issue during the 2020 campaign. And he has been very detailed at outlining this corruption in his new book, “Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends,” although he is now claiming there are a lot more questions raised after New York convicted Devon Archer who is a friend and partner to Hunter Biden, the former Vice President’s son.

Watch.

Here is more on this via PJ Media:

“President Barack Obama led regulatory attacks on numerous industries during his tenure at the White House. In many cases, his regulations — ostensibly to protect the public good — tanked the stock of various companies, enabling his close friends to swoop in and buy them for pennies on the dollar. Perhaps no figure best represents this “smash and grab” technique better than Marty Nesbitt, now head of the Obama Foundation.

Nesbitt first met Obama back in the 1980s, after playing basketball with Michelle Obama’s brother, Craig Robinson, at Princeton University. While at business school in Chicago, he met Obama playing basketball. When Obama ran for Congress in 2000, Nesbitt served as campaign chairman. He also fundraised for Obama’s state Senate and U.S. Senate campaigns, and served as his campaign chairman in 2008.

Nesbitt’s wife delivered Obama’s two daughters, and his family frequently vacationed with the Obamas in Hawaii or Martha’s Vineyard. Nesbitt became chairman of the Obama Foundation in 2014. The Chicago Tribune has branded Nesbitt “the First Friend.”

Peter Schweizer’s new book “Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends” details exactly how Obama’s policies enabled Nesbitt to swoop in and profit after companies felt the regulatory fire of the White House.

Nesbitt even formed a firm called Vistria, aimed to capitalize on “the nexus of the public and private sectors.” He filed for the trademark shortly after Obama’s reelection, and ten days before joining the Obamas for Christmas in Hawaii.

“Obama and his administration would attack industries with government power, which led to substantially lower valuations for these companies. Nesbitt and Vistria, or others close to Obama, could then acquire those assets for pennies on the dollar,” Schweizer explains. Nesbitt followed this pattern in at least four industries targeted by Obama.

In 2013, President Obama turned his ire toward for-profit colleges. He declared that students were being “preyed upon very badly,” and accused these schools of “making out like a bandit.” For all their faults, for-profit schools have their defenders, and Nesbitt himself would later invest in America’s largest one.

The Obama administration began the push in 2011, when the Department of Education (DOE) announced the so-called gainful employment rule, requiring for-profit schools to track job placements for graduates. DOE meetings to craft regulations included Deputy Education Secretary Tony Miller and Secretary Arne Duncan, both of whom would later join Vistria.

The left-leaning Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) sounded the alarm about emails showing that senior DOE officials were communicating with hedge fund investors planning to “short” for-profit stocks based on these rules.

In his second term, Obama’s administration pushed “a broader series of crackdowns on the industry by agencies including the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).”

The regulatory onslaught hit Apollo Education Group, which operated America’s largest for-profit college, the University of Phoenix, particularly hard. In July 2015, the FTC announced an investigation into Apollo, and in October, the Department of Defense (DOD) put the University of Phoenix on probation.

This DOD attack suspended the University of Phoenix at military bases across the country and cut off the school’s $2-4 billion per year in taxpayer funds. The soldiers, sailors, and Marines attending the school lost their GI Bill benefits, leaving some bereft of housing payments — and some homeless — as a result.

According to Schweizer, about 15 schools committed similar offenses to the University of Phoenix, but the Pentagon only suspended four of them, including this largest school.

Thanks to these attacks, Apollo’s stock price dropped from $11.29 per share in October 2015 to $6.38 by January 2016. The January price represented a 90 percent drop from January 2009 when Obama took office.”

This book is a must read. It covers everything about the so-called “no-scandal” Barack Hussein Obama presidency by outlining how all the President’s friends became rich off of the Obama Presidency.

How does everyone believe a person who comes into office, and is of meager means, leaves a multi-millionaire if not by corruption? And it’s not only Democrats who do this.

As an example, members of Congress make $174,000 a year plus expenses, but House Speaker Paul Ryan is worth almost 8 million dollars. You may ask yourself how does that happen? And politicians love telling us it’s because of book deals and the such. But I for one have read Paul Ryan’s book, although it’s not a bad read, it’s not worth a value of 8 million dollars. Nancy Pelosi makes the same $174,000 and she’s worth over $120 million dollars.

I’m not sure what kind of investments these people are up to, but I really wish they would share their secret with us peons who work hard every day to pay them a salary which apparently is meager peanuts to them.
