It was done to appease NGOs stuffed with Oligarch Cash and Racist Socialist Activists. The same ones that hate Infowars love Jeong's appointment to the NYT and think Farrakhan is a legit voice of Oppressed POCs.

It was done because jones is full of shit and everyone on the planet knows it except a single patnet poster.

They list 486 employees (line 5)!

It took 486 people who are paid $34.8 million and $91.3 million in fees and expenses, to give away $5.1 MILLION WHICH IS LESS THAN 3% OF TOTAL REVENUES!

Line 22 shows ending year net assets/fund balances of $332,471,349.00 which is up $85,171,891 from last year’s tax return!

And they call this a CHARITY?

MrMagic says
That's the WHOLE problem. They DIDN'T spend all the revenues for charitable purposes, but held on to them for more of the scam expenses.

This stupidity has been debunked so many times. CIC got totally spanked on this one a couple years ago. It was even the same exact article. . .

The foundation runs it's own charity work. That's why there are 486 people on payroll. They are all over the world DOING charitable work. Here is the actual audited financial statement from 2016 (2017 audited isn't posted yet). Feel free to got to page 22 note 10 and look at where the money was actually spent. There was 138 million spent for the health initiative alone providing health care to 11 million people in 33 countries in one year . . Why not compare that to trump foundation making political contributions, paying his lawyers, and buying art work for his golf courses.

The clintons are sleazebags, but the foundation is highly regarded. Charity Navigator gives it a top rating. The IRS accepts the numbers every year. But then again the IRS knows what a form 990 is and how to read it unlike the patnet "experts".

Those who are cheering for censorship on Alex Jones are not being ideologically consistent, which is why they can't claim to support free speech or the 1st amendment.

Libertarians believe in business being in a free market where all trades are voluntary - nothing is preventing people from making trades or forcing people to make trades. Social media is a business. Accepting or not accepting infowars is a free trade. It's a simple business transaction not free speech. Social media accepts content to provide advertisers a platform. Content providers get their content aired to generate revenue.

If you are a libertarian then to be ideologically consistent you have to support social media's right to trade or not trade with infowars. Free market trade is a bedrock principle of libertarianism. You can't have it both ways.

The first amendment has nothing, nada, zip, zero to do with individuals or private enterprise, only governments making laws. Why such a fucking simple concept is totally incomprehensible to so many people is a deep mystery.

I know simple words like "explode" confuse you, so maybe a simple graphic can help, kinda like your daily Sesame Street lesson:

Should I go get Big Bird to help explain what that RED arrow is pointing to?

Sesame street says if there are dozens of sites millions of infowars fanatics are going to for infowars then there is only 1 then the one will get all the traffic from millions of people. duh. If you take a million divided by 10 it's 100,000. Divide it by 1 and it's a million. That's exploding. Math explained, although everyone else got it already.

A while back I'm sure I made a post about how Politfact treated more-or-less the same claims about Black Unemployment (or Crime?) raised by both Bernie and Trump. Both men extrapolated the numbers, and the final numbers of either were pretty close to each other. Politfact ranked Sanders as "Mostly True" but Trump's as "Mostly False", as the statements were made several weeks apart. The further ironic thing is that the author/reviewer I think was "Caitlin" Somebody, so it was the same fact checker

Why don't you post both links instead of I said so. That way people can see what was actually written instead of what you believe was written.

This isn't US or Trumps fault, local incompetent bureaucrats just don't accept responsibility for their own incompetencies. It is why US aid is coming to Puerto Rico, but not getting from US through local authorities to the people

Good thing there were competent government bureaucrats for storms like hugo, andrew, katrina, irma otherwise thousands of people would have died and aid would have been a mess. Oh wait, those were totally bungled responses where thousands of people did die and aid was a mess, never mind. Good thing the US government didn't run up way more debt than can ever be paid off like PR. Oh wait, 20 trillion in debt, never mind. People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

I was in PR in July for 2 weeks .Drove all around stayed at hotels/airbnb, went to restaurants, movies, walmart/home depot/rite aid/books a million/etc. sailed, surfed, wakeboarded all with no problems. Everything is up and running just fine, or at least no more fouled up than normal. I'm sure there was plenty of bungling, confusion, corruption, and incompetence after a cat 5 hurricane strike. There always is with a major disaster anywhere.

Note how Politfact gives Bernie the Benefit of the doubt and moves the Goalpost to "African Americans Youth worse off than others." but Trump gets no such consideration. This is how Fact Checks are easily biased.

I don't see the bias. Bernie singled out a very specific narrow focus group high school graduates 17-20 not enrolled in school. The campaign provided their exact source for the claim. Politifact says his information is a little out of date but it's basically accurate. Trump said african american unemployment youth rate and the campaign provided no source for the number. Trump's numbers for that group were simply wrong by a big margin. Did you read the articles at all?

This is a perfect example of how ideological bias can either lead to invalid conclusions.and/or produce willful ignorance. .

You could argue that Bernie was being deceptive by using such a narrow group to come up with a shocking number, but almost everything trump says is deceptive or simply false so I don't see how that argument can carry water.

all illgeals are paid under the table. Is that what you are saying?
Probably many are

and the 15 billion dollars a year going into the social security earnings suspense file for unmatched social security numbers comes from where do you suppose? Santa Clause perhaps? If they are paying fica on a fake ss # then they are paying income taxes too. Then there are the 4.5 million ITIN tax returns on top of that. Plus state and local. That's a hell of a lot of tax collections from people who aren't paying any taxes.

I guess some people these days are too ignorant and think diseases can’t get them. Accepting mental disorders as normal is clearly more important than preventing epidemics that can wipe out populations.

ROFLOL. This is really too funny.

Does that mean the population of France is wiped out by epidemic since they have had unisex bathrooms pretty much forever? With the urinals in the sink area not in a stall. Gorgeous french women walk past while you piss. Works for me. At the beach they just bolt urinals to the outside of the lifeguard buildings. and whole families shower outside in the nude. Absolutely no one cares.

I had unisex bathrooms in my grade school in the 1960's. Each classroom had a bathroom that both the boys and girls used. The horror. That was in Virginia for christ sakes. Didn't see any epidemic happen. Did I miss it? What diseases are gender specific potential epidemics that aren't being spread now because of separated bathrooms?

I was thinking;

If Donald Trump deleted all of his emails, wiped his server with Bleachbit and destroyed all of his phones with a hammer, would the Mainstream Media suddenly lose all interest in the story and declare him innocent.

WTF, the story went on forever. Long after the election. What is the definition of suddenly? If trump did it and lost how long would the story have lasted? How much ongoing press would there be about the trump foundation more than a year later? This is just fucking dumb. Why are the trumptards so frightened of Hillary even today? She was the worst candidate the D's could have dredged up and she still terrifies the right wingnuts.

In fact the only damn reason we drive Combustion engine cars and not a steam powered car, is because Norman D. Rockefeller went to Henry Ford and commissioned him to design an engine to consume the volatile byproduct he had no use for, but it was dangerous to store and even more dangerous to burn in bulk.

Utter and total tin foil hat conspiracy crap. Rockefeller didn't spend a lot of time (like zero) talking to junior engineers at the edison illuminating company which is where ford worked while he was developing his first engine. Ford's first engine and all his engines were internal combustion. Some claim his first engine ran on alcohol and it might have been since a carb would just have to be rejetted for either gas or alky. Some claim the model t was dual fuel. That is not true.

Gasoline wasn't stored, it was burned off as a byproduct until cars started being manufactured in 1892 ot use it. That well before the first ford car sale in 1903. Once cars started being manufactured in larger numbers entire new cracking processes had to be invented to keep up with demand.

We have IC engines because they work better than steam engines to this day. Engineers and manufacturers of the day weren't stupid. They went with what worked best.

EV's don't pollute!

Of course EV's pollute. The electricity comes from some where and most is generated with fossil fuels. The question is if the net pollution is lower with EV's. Which is a big maybe. That doesn't take into account recycling the batteries which is expensive and energy intensive. The jury is out at this point.

Ample evidence of HRC colluding on every level including w Russia to frame trump as a traitor to manipulate our elections.

CBOEtrader says
Hillary colluded to influence our election. Part of that collusion is this entire Trump/Russian rouge. It is becoming more and more clear by the day that Trump did nothing, and instead this is all part of a cover up for HRC Inc's crimes.

Trump has had his entire time in office to get the justice department to file charges. Prosecute Hillary the first day he said. Yet nothing happens. Is trump incompetent or just lazy? Too busy tweeting about insignificant former staffers I guess. Maybe he should STFU and run the country instead. Are we still waiting for the next BLOCKBUSTER that is sending obama/hillary to jail?

Good idea, but if they're still allowing people to buy citizenship at $250k a pop, it's only going to stop regular foreigners from buying

You got the decimal place wrong and you are confusing residency with citizenship. It's a 2 million usd investment plus proven business experience to apply for the NZ investor visa. After 4 years you get NZ permanent residency. After 5 years of permanent residency you can apply for citizenship. So you need to keep 2 million usd invested plus 9 years living in NZ to get to citizenship. If you have 6.5 million usd you can cut a year off of that. There are a LOT better deals out there than that for a second passport.

Gay plague was in late 70s, early 80s.

But I was metaphorically referring to his “just because it was” doesn’t mean it was good. Black Plague was btw caused by poor sanitation.

Liberal hippie stupidity lately in LA brought lots of Hepatitis with it... another win for unsanitary crowd.

This is great stuff.

So letting girls use the same bathroom as boys results in boys having more anal sex with other boys and getting aids. I's really like to see the research on that one.

Black Plague was carried by fleas not from poor sanitation. There are very few people today in the US with fleas. Not an epidemic threat even if boys and girls use the same bathroom. It's true.

The whole 12 homeless people out of 10 million in LA county that got hep A is from liberal stupidity of letting grade school boys and girls use the same bathroom. You learn something new on patnet every day. I never knew liberal stupidity made people homeless. I always thought it had more to do with mental illness, drug, and alcohol abuse. Silly me.

First sentence in the OP: "This makes a lot of sense. US, particularly, California should do the same."

So where does 250k come in then? E5 visa is 1 million or 500k in designated high unemployment areas. Again that's just a visa, not citizenship. It's still 5 years to citizenship.

Lol, yes, that's exactly the problem with the "private company" argument.

Dumb argument. Youtube can't turn off your internet like the water company can turn off your water. The content is still available, inforwars isn't shut down. It's just not on youtube.

This is like "Europe has little gun crime." That's because Euros have almost no guns!

Almost no guns where? Most of western Europe is in the 20-35 guns per 100 vs the US at 80. Having 20 million guns in France is almost no guns? How do you define almost no?

The Housing Trap
You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should.
