Fred Lucas in the Daily Signal has this:

Patrisse Cullors

California officials have issued three warnings to a nonprofit group started by Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors that it has failed to file required financial disclosures.

In September and again in February and March, the California Attorney General’s Office notified Cullors’ organization, Dignity and Power Now, that it was delinquent in filing the financial information, according to documents obtained by The Daily Signal. 

From the same article:

The California Attorney General’s Office gave The Daily Signal a copy of the March letter. The National Legal and Policy Center provided the previous letters, one dated Sept. 4 and the other Feb. 2, to The Daily Signal.

The Virginia-based National Legal and Policy Center, which tracks nonprofits, monitors the finances of nonprofit groups associated with Cullors. NLPC Chairman Peter Flaherty said it is important to know where … Read More ➡

Facebook Billionaire Bankrolled BLM Founders’ Groups; Now Facebook Censors Real Estate Story

This from Alana Goodman in the Washington Free Beacon today:

Dustin Moskovitz

Facebook cofounder Dustin Moskovitz has poured over $5 million into a network of nonprofits run by Black Lives Matter leader Patrisse Cullors, according to financial disclosure records, raising questions about whether this relationship played a role in the company’s decision to censor unflattering news articles about the activist last week.

The social media giant blocked its users from posting links to a New York Post story that revealed Cullors, a self-described Marxist, spent $3.2 million on high-end real estate as her Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation raked in millions in donations.

Also from the article:

The National Legal and Policy Center, a watchdog group that has been monitoring Facebook’s financial activities and Moskovitz’s charitable records, criticized the company’s decision to block reporting on Cullors.

“We think this, once again, proves freedom of speech is an option not a … Read More ➡

Patrisse Cullors

National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) today released to the media information on significant real estate transactions involving Black Lives Matter Founder Patrisse Cullors.

These properties span the country, three being in California, and one in Conyers, Georgia. Cullers has also been looking at real estate in an exclusive enclave in the Bahamas.

NLPC Chairman Peter Flaherty stated, “This voice of the underprivileged seems to be doing pretty well.”

“Whenever a figure in the nonprofit sector acquires significant assets in a short period of time, scrutiny is inevitable.”

Merrick Garland Must Address His Role in Dropping Charges Against Capitol Bomber

Merrick Garland

National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) called upon the Senate Judiciary Committee to ask Attorney General nominee Judge Merrick Garland at his confirmation hearing this Monday about his role in dismissing a misconduct complaint against a magistrate judge who improperly dismissed an indictment against a co-conspirator and fugitive Elizabeth Ann Duke for the 1983 bombing of the U.S. Capitol and other federal buildings.

On November 7, 1983, radical left-wing members of the Resistance Conspiracy, affiliated with the May 19 Communist Coalition and Weather Underground, bombed the Senate Chambers of the Capitol Building.  Between 1983-1985 they had bombed three military facilities in the area, including the Navy Yard and Fort McNair. 

One of the convicted conspirators, Susan Rosenberg, had her sentence commuted by President Clinton.  Rosenberg took her skills to work for Black Lives Matter.  Her co-conspirator, Elizabeth Ann Duke, jumped bail and has been a fugitive ever since … Read More ➡

Acquit Trump or Censure Schumer

NLPC Counsel Paul Kamenar on One America News Network

National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) called upon the U.S. Senate to acquit former President Trump in his upcoming impeachment trial for exercising his First Amendment rights or else censure Senator Chuck Schumer for threatening Supreme Court Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh. 

Last March, Schumer addressed a cheering activist crowd during the oral argument on a controversial abortion case, turned towards the Court and shouted: “I want to tell you, Gorsuch… I want to tell you, Kavanaugh… you have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”  Anti-Kavanaugh protestors had stormed the Supreme Court building when he was confirmed. Luckily, there were no pre-planned attackers at Schumer’s rally as there were at the Trump rally.

Senator Schumer’s remarks drew an immediate public rebuke from Chief Justice John … Read More ➡

Transit Union Joins Black Lives Matter Strike; Undermines Mission

The social media-driven network of demagogues known as Black Lives Matter these past several weeks has enjoyed a groundswell of support among organized labor. A case in point is the Amalgamated Transit Union. The 200,000-member union is playing a key role in a nationwide protest today against “systemic” racism. “The ATU proudly stands in solidarity with our sisters and brothers who are Striking for Black Lives on July 20,” said International President John Costa. “We must dismantle the racist policies that target our communities to ensure all workers are healthy, safe and secure no matter their race, immigration status, gender, job or where they live.” This overheated and cliched declaration underscores how unions, and not just the ATU, are using member dues to subvert their duties of representation.

Today’s multi-city “Strike for Black Lives” is a joint project of civil rights and labor leaders, especially those affiliated with the Service … Read More ➡

NBA Promotes BLM While Remaining Silent on Chinese Communists

Josh Hawley/IMAGE: C-SPAN via YouTube

The open letter on Friday by Republican Sen. Josh Hawley, to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, exposed the hypocritical worldview of the leftists in the league and in the media.

That will likely be the best result, rather than seeing the Missouri Senator’s missive produce any meaningful change in how the league manages itself.

Hawley called out Silver and the NBA over its decision to permit its players – more than 80 percent of whom are black – to replace the names on the backs of their jerseys with messaging that for the most part fits the term “social justice.” That is, players can opine just as long as they don’t advocate for the welfare of police officers. Or for victims of Chinese oppression.

The NBA limited the messages players could display to a handful. Needless to say, none expressed support for anything other than … Read More ➡
