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.

Save conservative media!

Biden: ‘200 Million People’ Will Be Dead From COVID By the Time I Finish This Speech [Watch]

This has to be a parody! Come on, man!

At this point, there are no words to describe Joe Biden anymore. The guy is just gone. How a person can vote for him in November literally makes zero sense. He’s not fit to run a hot dog stand, at this point. How can somebody get words mixed up so badly even when reading from a teleprompter!? According to the former VP, 200 mill…LOL, I can’t even type the sentence without laughing. Just check this out, via The Daily Wire: Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden struggled during a speech on Sunday, falsely claiming that estimates indicated that there would be 200 million people dead from COVID-19 by the time he was finished talking.

Half of the time, it’s just not even English. If Saturday Night Live played it down the middle, there would probably be some pretty funny skits mocking Joe. The already twice-failed presidential candidate had another classic speaking blunder, recently.

AOC: We Have to Consider Impeaching Trump or Bill Barr to Prevent SCOTUS Confirmation

WOWOWOW!!

Why did the Republican-controlled Senate delay a floor vote for Barack Obama’s SCOTUS pick back in 2016 after the death of Antonin Scalia? Because Obama was a lame-duck; on his way out of office. It only made sense to have the next president decide. President Trump is not a lame-duck, considering he can still win a second term. Therefore, it makes sense for the GOP-controlled Senate to push through 45’s nominee. But Dems don’t exactly see things that way. And their hypocrisy will be exposed below in just a few minutes. First, check out AOC – from TDW: Far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said during a press conference on Sunday that Democrats must be open to all options in their attempts to stop President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) from filling the Supreme Court seat that was vacated last week.
