Joe Biden’s Cancer Nonprofit Paid Top Execs Millions Of Dollars, But Spent Very Little To Fight Cancer

Published

on

Democratic presumptive nominee Joe Biden’s cancer initiative spent nearly two-thirds of the money it has raised to pay its top executives, which means there wasn’t a whole lot left to work toward finding a way to cure cancer, which was supposed to be the whole purpose of the foundation.

This, of course, isn’t shocking. Most politicians start foundations like this as a means of appearing to give back to the country with philanthropic efforts, when in reality it’s just a way to stay in the limelight and put a little money in their pockets.

The Biden Cancer Initiative, created not long after Biden’s time in the White House as the vice president ended, had 65 percent of its total expenditures paid out to the executives supposedly running things.

The nonprofit raised and spent $4.8 million over its two years in operation, its 2017 and 2018 tax forms show. Slightly more than $3 million of that amount went to salaries, compensation, and benefits. At the same time, the group spent just $1.7 million on all of its other expenses. A bulk of this cash—$740,000—was poured into conferences, conventions, and meetings. It did not cut a single grant to any other group or foundation during its two-year run.

An analysis of nonprofits by Charity Navigator, which rates charities for effectiveness, found that mid-to-large-sized nonprofits paid their chief executives an average salary of $126,000 per year—far less than what the Biden Cancer Initiative paid its president, Greg Simon, who pocketed $224,539 in 2017 and $429,850 in 2018. Charity Navigator’s primary criterion for rating charities is whether they “spend at least 75% of their expenses directly on their programs.”

The Biden cancer group’s financial disclosures may raise new questions about whether the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee allowed associates to profit off their access to him. Before going on to receive six-figure salaries from the Biden Cancer Initiative, Simon and the initiative’s vice president, Danielle Carnival, previously worked for the Obama administration’s Cancer Moonshot program. Biden’s son Hunter received $50,000 a month to sit on the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma despite an apparent lack of qualifications. James Biden, Joe Biden’s brother, joined a construction firm in 2010 that later won a $1.5 billion contract to build homes in Iraq while Biden oversaw Iraq policy. Biden’s presidential campaign has been plagued with questions about Hunter’s and James’s financial activities.

So why is this important?

If a person wants to be president, personal character is an important aspect of the fitness for such a position. What kind of causes a person supports and gives to is a critical component of understanding their heart. When someone pretends to care about a cause, like a cure for cancer, but is just using it as a means of making money, that tells you what really matters to that person.

Then you and I must ask ourselves if a person with those kind of priorities is someone we want in charge of our country.

The answer here is no.

College Student Gets Suspended for Saying ‘A Man Is A Man, A Woman Is A Woman’ (Details)

This is the world we now live in.

Speaking the truth these days means you’re liable to get suspended, fired, “cancelled,” and/or seriously physically injured – depending on the liberal that you have offended. This is what happens when the criminally insane are allowed to run the asylum. From The Daily Wire: A New York university has suspended an education student from mandatory teaching programs for posting Instagram videos expressing conservative ideology. State University of New York (SUNY) Geneseo sent an email to education student Owen Stevens placing him on suspension from his field teaching programs after his peers uncovered videos of him preaching conservative dogma. The school claims that Stevens’ videos “call into question” his ability to “maintain a classroom environment protecting the mental and emotional well-being of all of [his] students.” According to a copy of Steven’s suspension obtained by The Daily Wire, the education student will remain suspended from participating in in-school field experiences and courses that have field experiences until he completes a “remediation plan.” The remediation plan includes taking down his Instagram videos, toning down his social media presence, and attending school-sanctioned training. Stevens said he would not take part in “remediation.” Good. He shouldn’t. How is it acceptable for a person to be punished for talking facts? How are people that flipping offended, nowadays!?

House Passes Equality Act, Which Will Hurt ‘Religious Freedom, Women’s Sports’ & More

Party of ‘science’…

How can Democrats claim to “follow the science” when they believe there are more than two genders? Shouldn’t all their opinions be disregarded automatically based on that alone? These people are out of control. What’s worse is that they believe they are doing the right thing. From Washington Times: House Democrats on Thursday passed the Equality Act, taking their cues from President Biden as he pushes transgender rights to the forefront over warnings of dire repercussions for religious freedom, women’s sports and female privacy. The bill, which would add sex, gender identity and sexual orientation to the 1964 Civil Rights Act, was approved 224-206, with three Republicans voting in favor of the measure, a drop from the eight who supported the measure in 2019. The previous legislation had little chance with Republicans in charge of the Senate and President Trump in the White House, but Mr. Biden has made transgender rights a priority, starting with a landmark Day One executive order to combat discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation.
