Tax Documents Further Expose Black Lives Matter Organization As Racist Multimillion-Dollar Grifter Project

Tax Documents Further Expose Black Lives Matter Organization As Racist Multimillion-Dollar Grifter Project

Public tax filings for the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation further exposed the racist organization built explicitly on Marxist values as a multimillion-dollar enterprise to enrich its leadership while cloaked in the self-righteousness of social justice.

According to the New York Post on Tuesday, disgraced co-founder Patrisse Cullors, who stepped down last year amid scrutiny of a series of financial scandals, funneled major six-figure sums to family members from the network’s donors. Paul Cullors, Patrisse’s brother, raked in $840,000 from the nonprofit’s charity funds. Damon Turner, who fathers a child with Patrisse, owns a company that was paid nearly $970,000 from the organization for “creative services” including “produc[ing] live events.”

“The 63-page Form 990 document, an annual filing required for nonprofit organizations to maintain their tax-exempt status, shows Cullors reimbursed the organization $73,523 for a charter flight,” the Post reported. “BLM insists she took the flight in 2021 out of concern for the COVID-19 pandemic and the health risks that come with it.”

Meanwhile, Cullors “already found herself in hot water after receiving a cool $120,000 payment for undisclosed ‘consulting fees’ by BLM.”

The document, published by the Associated Press on Tuesday, shows the organization that raised $90 million in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death ended its fiscal year on June 30, 2021 with nearly $42 million in assets.

A board member said the BLM Global Network operates with a $4 million dollar budget with tax forms detailing $32 million invested in stocks that are expected to serve as a permanent endowment fund for the group’s work.

“More than $37 million was spent by the foundation on grants, real estate, and charter on private flights, according to the tax filings,” the Post wrote.

Major purchases with little oversight have raised eyebrows in recent months as the group’s leadership buys high-priced homes in Los Angeles and Toronto for questionable use.

Prior to her resignation last summer, Patrisse Cullors used the organization’s new $6 million dollar California mansion to throw her son a private birthday party despite claims she would never use the property for personal use.

“I look back at that and think, that probably wasn’t the best idea,” she told the Associated Press after she was caught.

In January, the organization under fire for an apparent absence of leadership overseeing its tens of millions in tax-exempt funds drew outrage after the purchase of a 10,000-square-foot Canadian mansion in Toronto for more than $8 million.

“For BLM Canada to take money from BLM Global Network [Foundation] for a building without consulting the community was unethical,” Canadian BLM activists Sarah Jama and Sahra Soudi said in a statement following the purchase. “For BLM Canada to refuse to answer questions from young Black organizers goes against the spirit of movement-building.”

The pair of Canadian activists left the Toronto chapter after.

But according to Cullors, questions surrounding the organization’s financial ethics are racist and the 990 nonprofit “structure” is “deeply unsafe.”

Report: Newsrooms Warn Journalists to Keep Abortion Views Private

Report: Newsrooms Warn Journalists to Keep Abortion Views Private

It appears that newsroom managers have warned reporters against voicing their personal views on abortion as the Supreme Court potentially stands on the cusp of overturning Roe v. Wade.

According to a recent Vanity Fair report, certain news outlets have taken a markedly different tone than the one they employed during the Black Lives Matter protests over the death of George Floyd. For instance, during the height of the protests/riots of 2020, Axios chief executive Jim VandeHei told employees in a company-wide memo that they were encouraged to exercise their “rights to free speech, press, and protest.” In recent days, however, the company has been singing a different tune to its employees. Earlier this week, a memo circulated among the Axios staff urged journalists to keep their opinions secret.

“Abortion is a human rights issue that has become a highly politicized topic, with very specific policies being debated in Washington and in most states,” wrote VandeHei. “So it seems impossible to march—or tweet opinions—and not be perceived as picking a political side in public.”

VandeHei warned that such activism “could undermine our trusted journalism.”

An Axios spokesperson told Vanity Fair said that the policy stands in line with the company’s mission statement.

“We have been consistent and clear since Axios’s inception: we want our company focused on reporting and fact-based news, not opinion. We know this is hard for staff when they feel their values or identity are under attack, but this is our shared mission,” said the spokesperson.

Reporters with the Associated Press and NPR were also issued a similar memo, according to Poynter.

Journalists have since taken to Twitter to voice their discontent.

“As we speak, journalists who expressed their anger and distress on Twitter over their bodily autonomy and rights being taken away are now getting reprimanded for it,” said Jess Joho of Mashable. “Please, explain to me: exactly whose version of ‘objectivitie truth’ are we supposed to stick to here?”

Though the New York Times has issued no memo on the matter, the outlet directed Vanity Fair to its ethical journalism guidelines, which says staff members “may not march or rally in support of public causes or movements” or do things such as “sign ads taking a position on public issues” that may “reasonably raise doubts about their ability or The Times’s ability to function as neutral observers in covering the news.”

Only Rolling Stone (not exactly a bastion of objectivity) told employees that they were welcome to share their beliefs on the issue.

“Unlike so many other newsrooms, you don’t have to stifle your beliefs around here. This is a place where we can champion our convictions, where we can be our fullest selves,” Rolling Stone top editor Noah Shachtman told staff in a Slack message last Tuesday.

 “Of course, we have to maintain the highest standards of accuracy and authenticity in our reporting; we can’t take shortcuts, or substitute opinions for facts. But this is a multi-pronged offensive against our rights and we need to be frank with our readers about what’s at stake—no euphemisms, no sugar-coating,” he added.

5 Ways American Corporations Can Avoid Becoming The Next Disney

5 Ways American Corporations Can Avoid Becoming The Next Disney

Corporate America is experiencing a crisis of wokeness. There is a massive disconnect between the board rooms and their consumers, and it is affecting their bottom lines. Despite what you read in many media outlets, most Americans do not believe they are oppressed or that our country is a bad place. They want to laugh at funny jokes, enjoy time with their families, and generally live their lives joyfully.

Disney has provided the latest case study, as the most pronounced failure to navigate today’s political-cultural environment. CEO Bob Chapek first declined to weigh in on a political issue, Florida’s parental rights law, which was written to prevent classroom discussion of sexual orientation and gender identity for kindergartners through third graders.

Then a very loud minority of his employees complained, so he reversed course and said the company would seek to have the law repealed. That triggered parents across the country to denounce Disney, and Florida’s state government to pass another law revoking Disney’s special status in Florida as a self-governing improvement district. Since declaring its fealty to the leftist woke mob, Disney’s stock has fallen by approximately 20 percent and its market cap has shrunk by tens of billions of dollars.

This is not the first time this has happened to major entities in the past year. Delta Airlines and Major League Baseball adopted absurd political positions after Georgia passed a new voting law that is less stringent than those of most states. It chose to side with the woke mob over common sense by essentially declaring, without any basis whatsoever, that Georgia’s voting laws are racist. MLB even moved its All-Star game out of Atlanta over the issue, thereby taking business away from thousands of black-owned enterprises and families and leaving a trail of resentment in its wake.

These incidents were entirely preventable failures of leadership. The good news is that there is an answer for the many CEOs now, finally, asking the very sensible question: how do we prevent ourselves from becoming the next Disney?

1. Never Bow to the Mob

Strong leaders maintain the courage of their convictions, and people respect them. Chapek’s initial instinct to stay out of the fray was the right one.

Politicians routinely criticize their opponents for being “flip-floppers” because it calls into question their credibility. Chapek flip-flopped in a humiliating fashion. He not only made a U-turn on the company’s policy, he issued a shameful and completely unbelievable apology that led shareholders, customers, and any other interested parties to think that this man will say anything to try to end a controversy.

Furthermore, the mob will never, ever be satisfied. Bowing to the mob never ends with the mob saying thank you and going on their way. It is always “only a first step,” after which point they will continue to demand fealty in perpetuity.

Conversely, if you don’t give in, they will eventually move on to another weaker target because they can only sustain a pressure campaign for a limited period of time. Readers eventually move on to some other outrage of the day.

Hold fast in your determination to maintain your role and defend your values. Reach out to those who agree with you. Build a coalition of support and a steady drumbeat of public content about that support. There are millions upon millions of Americans who will join your side against the mob, and you will find strength in their resolve as well.

2. Stop Bribing People Who Hate You

As part of Chapek’s embarrassing and weak apology effort, he pledged $5 million to the Human Rights Campaign, an impossibly liberal and radical organization that exists to elect Democrats and purports to support LGTBQ people, but wages war against LGTBQ people who dare to think for themselves and hold any conservative values.

Dovetailing with point number one, they will never be satisfied. What was HRC’s response to Disney’s donation? They rejected it, publicly scolded Disney, and demanded this be only the beginning of Disney’s advocacy efforts in line with their views. Once Disney has proven their obedience sufficiently, only then will HRC accept the millions of dollars, and undoubtedly demand millions more.

Similarly, many of the nation’s largest corporations donated to Black Lives Matter since 2020 to show how virtuous they were. Meanwhile, BLM exists to advance radical Marxist policies and would gladly put their corporate donors in gulags. It has since been indicated that BLM’s money went to purchase numerous multi-million-dollar mansions for its founders — not to advance any sort of social justice agenda. Moreover, some of those funds have been used to bail violent criminals out of jail after committing horrific crimes.

Just please, for the love of all that is holy, stop funding organizations that hate you. The murderous Russian communist Vladimir Lenin famously quipped, “We will sell the capitalist nations the rope with which they will hang themselves.” Stop falling for extortion at the hands of crybullies.

3. Trust Your Instincts

Trust your instincts. Be very skeptical of polls. Mark Twain attributed to British Prime Minister Bejamin Disraeli the famous quip about three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics. There are perhaps no more manipulated data than polls. Notice the difference between polls designed to shape public opinion versus those that reflect public opinion.

Remember that even the most sophisticated polls got the 2016 election wrong, and several were very far off from the actual results in 2020. Just before the election, Reuters Ipsos claimed that Biden led by 10 points among likely voters. In the election, the difference was only about 4 points. That’s a 6-point difference — which is twice the margin of error of most polls. It’s not just outside the margin, it’s double.

It is very easy to shift a poll with the population sampled and how questions are phrased, just to name a couple of factors. Not to pick on Reuters gratuitously, because there are many offenders, but take another recent Reuters Ipsos poll.

In response to Disney’s controversy in Florida, it found that most Americans do not support “punishing” companies for their political views, a reference to Florida attempting to eliminate Disney’s special governance district status. That was the headline in nearly all of the coverage. Notice the charged word chosen — “punishing.” One might query whether a company should have a self-governing status independent from its state and local government to begin with, rather than support or oppose “punishing” a company.

One might also focus on another portion of the same poll, which found that most Americans support Florida’s law removing sexual orientation and gender identity from early childhood education. But that’s not where the advocates and media went — they framed an issue in a way that would protect the liberal agenda. Be wary of this sort of sleight of hand because it does not reflect actual public opinion — it is designed to shape public opinion.

As surely most parents would agree, discussion of sexual orientation and gender identity with 5-year-olds is not even close to appropriate. Trust that instinct. Trust the instincts of your consumers over the vocal minority and sham polling data.

If, as the saying goes, the customer is always right, surely your whiny employees must be wrong sometimes. To attach another famous quip to this notion, as Michael Jordan once famously said, “Republicans buy sneakers too,” so perhaps consider that your audience may not agree with your woke employees, even if they are not quite as vocal.

4. Be Kind and Support Families

This point also dovetails with the previous one. Do you know what Americans love more than companies pretending to be virtuous? Their families. They love their children and want to protect them. They want to see their families reflected in popular culture.

Major League Baseball is an institution for parents to bring their children out to the ballgame. It is not a social justice warrior organization, nor should it be. Its decision to remove the All-Star game from Atlanta for political purposes tainted the game and angered at least half the fans. It injected divisive racial huckster politics into a family atmosphere, and it was incredibly harmful.

With regard to Disney, its new-found desire to placate a radical left political movement has likewise tainted a family-friendly brand and angered many in its core audience: families. According to Gallup, less than 1 percent of American adults are married LGTBQ people. While of course they are deserving of rights, representation, kindness, and love, portraying same-sex families as appearing literally everywhere simply does not speak to most families, and it is not reflective of reality.

Perhaps more importantly, families do not take their children to Disney World to engage in political debate. They take them there to have fun. Disney should support that goal.

Be kind. Be tolerant. Be inclusive. Do not browbeat or preach about inclusiveness and tolerance.

5. Support America

Americans love America. There is a reason every touring artist goes to a city and does the typical “Hello Cleveland” routine, and everyone cheers. People want to be proud of where they are from. They do not hate where they are from.

The 1619 Project, BLM, and purveyors of critical race theory perpetuate a view that America is rotten to its core. It is not only false, but it is also contrary to what patriotic Americans believe. They don’t take kindly to such aspersions cast on their country, which has served as a beacon and defender of freedom for generations. Be patriotic, and patriots will respond to you favorably.

Follow these guidelines, and you will not only be stronger and happier, but you will also be more likely to avoid becoming the next Disney.

Report: Exxon Prohibits LGBTQ, BLM Flags Outside Corporate Offices

Report: Exxon Prohibits LGBTQ, BLM Flags Outside Corporate Offices

Exxon Mobil Corp. does not intend to fly an LGBTQ flag in front of corporate offices in June during pride month, according to a report.

Bloomberg News reports having seen a new Exxon company policy that prohibits “external position flags,” including the LGBTQ and Black Lives Matters flags, from being flown in front of corporate offices. “Instead, the rule permits a flag representing an LGBTQ employees’ group that does not prominently feature Exxon’s corporate logo,” according to the outlet.

The move has sparked outrage among the company’s PRIDE Houston Chapter, as members of the group are now declining to represent the company in the city’s June pride celebration, according to Bloomberg.

“Corporate leadership took exception to a rainbow flag being flown at our facilities” last year, stated employees in the group in an email. “PRIDE was informed the justification was centered on the need for the corporation to maintain ‘neutrality.’” 

Exxon Vice President of Human Resources Tracey Gunnlaugsson provided Bloomberg News with a statement on the matter, which reads in part:

The updated flag protocol is intended to clarify the use of the ExxonMobil branded company flag and not intended to diminish our commitment to diversity and support for employee resource groups. We’re committed to keeping an open, honest, and inclusive workplace for all of our employees, and we’re saddened that any employee would think otherwise.

Of the company’s roughly 63,000 employees around the globe, 3,000 are part of Exxon’s pride employee resource group, according to Bloomberg News.

BLM Claims $6 Million California Mansion Bought for Cultivating ‘Joy’

BLM Claims $6 Million California Mansion Bought for Cultivating ‘Joy’

Black Lives Matter recently purchased a $6 million California mansion for the purpose of cultivating “joy” among the black community, the organization announced Monday.

“Joy is a radical act,” Black Lives Matter alleged. “As a practice and as an experience, joy is something that can heal and sustain us when times are tough. But joy also provides opportunities to explore the possibilities beyond the limits of our daily lives.”

Black Lives Matter, which is under scrutiny over the misuse of donation funds, said the 6,500-square-foot mansion will be used for fellows who wish to learn how to be joyful during the “challenges of the modern world.”

“Creating opportunities for joyful expression is increasingly necessary but often few and far between,” the organization claimed. “The Black Lives Matter Global Network seeks to change that with a new creative fellowship program.”

It is unknown why Black Lives Matter believes the $6 million California mansion is suited for the fellowship rather than a less convenient location with a glamorous cost. But the organization claims the house will operate as a living space for those seeking joy and and “communal space for collaboration,” which includes a garden space for artists who wish to utilize it for dreaming, meditating, and building joy.

“Black Lives Matter recognizes the power of arts and culture to dismantle white supremacy and bring us closer to achieving full liberation not just here in America, but across the globe also,” Black Lives Matter stated to NewsOne.

In 2021, Breitbart News reported that Patrisse Khan-Cullors, one of the co-founders of the Black Lives Matter movement, bought four homes over the past several years.

The lavish spending has encouraged some activists to question how Black Lives Matter is spending their massive pool of donations from the unrest in 2020. Cullors claims she has never taken a salary from the donations but has not stated whether she has received any compensation from the organization by way of gifts, expense reimbursements, or stipends.

“Organizers should get paid for the work that they do. They should get paid a living wage,” she claimed in 2021. “And the fact that the right-wing media is trying to create hysteria around my spending is, frankly, racist and sexist.”

Victoria Police Facing a ‘Crisis in Trust’ after Covid Violence: Rita Panahi

Victoria Police Facing a ‘Crisis in Trust’ after Covid Violence: Rita Panahi

Outsiders host Rita Panahi says that a bit of cheap PR won’t fix the damage Victoria Police did to their brand during Covid. Reform is needed to flush out the violence and politicisation that has marred VicPol in recent years.

“After two years of overreach and selective policing, the VicPol hierarchy wants to rebuild their brand,” says Sky News host Rita Panahi in a viral video that has seen over a million views on Twitter and hundreds of thousands through other platforms this week.

Panahi’s Outsiders segment followed on from a Nine News report explaining that Victoria Police is “hoping to repair a brand damaged by two years of unpopular Covid policing”.

Nine News interviewed Victoria Police Chief Commissioner Shane Patton, who made veiled references to the reckless violence and highly politicised law enforcement Victorians faced from their police force over the last year. It “might not have been what they would have expected in the first instance,” said Patton with a straight face.

This didn’t convince a fired-up Rita Panahi.

“No Commissioner, you didn’t have to do any of the insanely illiberal and often downright brutal enforcement that you and your members of your command enthusiastically embraced,” Panahi retorted. “You didn’t have to allow the police force to become politicised. You didn’t have to stand with bureaucrats banning children from playgrounds.”

Brutal Violence by Victoria Police

The six-minute report shows graphic footage of police violence, some of which was featured on mainstream news at the time, but has since been largely swept under the rug by Australia’s Covid cheer squad.

“Victoria Police command wants you to forget about what they’ve been up to,” Panahi warns, before highlighting their misconduct: “harassing old women on park benches, arresting pregnant women in their kitchens for Facebook posts, enforcing playground bans on children, and their brutal response to anti-lockdown protesters.”

In one short clip, officers in full riot gear are seen beating one anti-lockdown protester with the stock of a firearm, and running in to knee another already subdued on the ground.

This incident “didn’t get any attention despite the brutality and clear misuse of a weapon,” Panahi laments. Nevertheless, it was events like this that explain why “so many law-abiding Victorians who are normally pro-police now look at the force with suspicion,” she says.

In another shocking incident that took place in the Melbourne suburb of Epping, a man suffering a mental health episode is run down by a police car and subsequently has his head stomped by an officer.

“That poor victim ended up in an induced coma,” reports Panahi. “And the incident was investigated, but guess what? You’ll be happy to learn that the watchdog found that Victoria Police acted lawfully when head-stomping a mentally ill man during arrest.”

The Politicisation of Victoria Police

For people watching on from around Australia, one of the most infuriating aspects of Victoria Police’s approach to Covid was their selective policing of events, depending on the political sentiment behind them.

Anti-lockdown protesters were subjected to rubber bullets, pepper spray and riot squad round-ups. In contrast, those who flouted Covid restrictions to march in a Black Lives Matter rally were not only condoned but encouraged by Victoria Police.

Assistant Commissioner Luke Cornelius, whom Panahi appropriately likens to Chief Wiggum from the Simpsons, was perhaps the most politically partisan player in VicPol’s hierarchy. While referring to anti-lockdown protesters as “bat**** crazy conspiracy theorists”, this is what he had to saw about BLM rally-goers:

Victoria Police understands and acknowledges the anger and frustration people feel about events taking place overseas and which are dominating our TV. We absolutely understand the sentiment an the anger that lies behind that and we are very keen to support community here in giving voice to their concerns and their protest.

“For BLM, there was restraint, no mass arrests or fines,” says Panahi. But demonisation, fines and violence were meted out on “those questioning why their kids’ schools were closed and their livelihoods were being destroyed”.

The Need for Reform at VicPol

Victoria Police’s public image is badly damaged, according to Panahi. “A little cheap PR isn’t going to fix that,” she asserts. Far more is needed. Panahi contents that VicPol’s command “needs a clean-out”.

She’s right.

Throughout Covid, Victoria Police failed to live up to its mission, which is to “serve the Victorian community and uphold the law so as to promote a safe, secure and orderly society”.

If trust in Victoria Police is to be rebuilt, misconduct must be acknowledged and reforms should be forthcoming. Australians want to trust law enforcement, and most police officers want to carry out their job with dignity and integrity.

For everyone but the powerful few, reform can’t come soon enough.

Exclusive– Rep. Roger Williams: Americans Don’t Want Wokeness in Sports

Exclusive– Rep. Roger Williams: Americans Don’t Want Wokeness in Sports

PONTE VEDRA, Florida — Americans are sick of the politicization of sports, Rep. Roger Williams (R-TX), a former baseball star, told Breitbart News during an exclusive interview at the 2022 U.S. House Republican Issues Conference.

Willams, a former college baseball star who was drafted into the MLB and now serves as the manager of the Republican baseball team, offered his perspective on “wokeness” infiltrating America’s long-beloved pastimes.

“Sports is a big thing in America. I have a baseball background and you know, I’m upset when I see a lot of woke in anything, quite frankly. We’ve got a rich history. We’ve got some good. We’ve got some bad, but we learn by both,” he explained. “We don’t need to destroy it.”

“And I think a lot of these players who are playing today, if they had any other job in the private sector, they wouldn’t be making anything what they’re making. A lot of them don’t understand the value of a dollar. A lot of them don’t understand how they got there,” he said.

“And I think to the extent sports can get out of politics is the best thing,” Williams added, as Americans have long viewed sports as an escape — something wokeness has completely destroyed.

“People want to go to a baseball game or hockey game, football game, and they want to enjoy the game and root for their team. They don’t want politics involved,” he said.

While Williams acknowledged that we “can’t keep players from making statements,” he suggested that some of what we have seen recently crosses the line.

“But at the same time, I think there’s a point in time, you do not kneel for the national anthem. I don’t think you wear Black Lives Matter across you shirt. That sends a political statement that fans don’t want to jack with, quite frankly,” the Republican said.

Players need to play, and let the people of America decide politically where they want to go,” Williams said. “So I’m disappointed in some of the things I see on the athletic fields and disappointed in some of the things players say, but there’s also a lot of players who get it.”

“A lot of players serve. A lot of players do great things more than not, ok? But we don’t need to be having political statements on the court. We don’t need the political statement on the pitcher’s mound. We don’t need political statements on our jerseys . Let’s play for our country, let’s play for our fans, let’s play for our mom and dad, let’s play for our school,” he said, calling for the days of “normality” to make a comeback.
