Massive dark money windfall: New conservative group got $1.6 billion from single donor

Source: CNN

(CNN)A new group led by a prominent conservative lawyer has received $1.6 billion from one donor -- the largest single contribution to a politically focused nonprofit that's ever been made public, and a fortune that could be used to fuel right-wing interests.

The nonprofit, Marble Freedom Trust, received the contribution in the form of stock and then funneled more than $200 million to other conservative organizations last year, a tax form CNN obtained from the IRS shows.

Marble Freedom is led by Leonard Leo, the co-chairman of the conservative Federalist Society, who advised former President Donald Trump on his Supreme Court picks and runs a sprawling network of other right-wing nonprofits that don't disclose their donors, which are often referred to as dark money groups.

How is this a good thing for Democracy?

Personally, I am stunned, and that rarely happens.

Watching this CNN video really illustrates the scam the GOP is not trying to pull visa via Jan 6th

Why conservatives issued report rebutting Trump election lies


Longtime Republican election lawyer Ben Ginsberg joins CNN's Ana Cabrera to discuss a new 72-page report he signed that categorically rebutted each of the claims made in court by former President Donald Trump and his supporters over the 2020 election results.

Ben Ginsberg lays down the thickest coating of bull shit I've ever seen and no one calls him out on it.

Please watch the video.

Ukraine’s energy minister said Sunday that power supply has been restored at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, which Russian troops have occupied since late February.

Ukrainian government officials had said Wednesday that damage by Russian forces had “disconnected” the plant from outside electricity, leaving the site dependent on power from diesel generators and backup supplies.

In a post on Facebook, Ukraine’s energy minister, Herman Galushchenko said that the plant was no longer on backup power and had resumed operating under normal conditions. He praised Ukrainian power engineers for risking their lives to “avert the risk of a possible nuclear catastrophe.”

My how things have changed...

Today Ukraine's President did multiple Zoom calls that were broadcast to major Euro cities around the world and tens of thousands of people showed up to watch them. Tomorrow he does one to talk to the United States Senate.

Just think about that for a bit. You can use a frickin cell phone to broadcast live around the world. Take that Putty Poot.

The Ukraine disinformation has begun...

I just got off the phone with an old friend (who's always been a hard-right ideologue), and when I asked him what he thinks about the Russian Invasion of Ukraine he informed me that there is adequate evidence that it is not Russia behind the invasion based on what he has been reading.

The ransomware gang previously ran accounts on Twitter and Tumblr.

A well-known ransomware gang is now using the social media platform Parler in order to aid its extortion efforts.

The cybercrime group, which joined the conservative-leaning website on Jan. 11, has already posted the name of one medical equipment company that it claims to have hacked.

The discovery was made this week by Brett Callow, a threat analyst with the cybersecurity firm Emsisoft.

“After doing the research and connecting the dots, I have reached the conclusion that the Stop the Steal organization is a Deep State organization to raise money for purposes other than to FIX 2020,” Wood posted on his Telegram

Wood has been ... making wild claims without evidence. Over the past few days, he has shared increasingly outrageous claims on his Telegram and turned on pro-Trumpers who used to be his allies, including Sidney Powell, Sebastian Gorka and Michael Flynn.

US Republican Rep Greene says 'no one cares' about Delta variant


US Republican Rep Greene says ‘no one cares’ about Delta variant

Congresswoman’s allegations highlight how COVID-19 has been politicized in the United States.

A controversial rising star in the United States Republican Party, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene has tweeted comments dismissive of the threat from the Delta variant of COVID-19 as President Joe Biden, a Democrat, pushes for greater acceptance of vaccines in the US amid a newly rising death toll in some areas.

“No one cares about the Delta variant or any other variant,” Representative Greene, a newly elected member of Congress from Georgia, said in a string of tweets she called a “message from America to the Swamp” unleashed on July 5.

“They are over covid & there is no amount of fear-based screaming from the media that will ever force Americans to shut down again,” Greene said.


I maintain a topical news feed on all things COVID and reading the recent news articles on the Delta variant has me very worried, especially when I read stuff like this.

Brace yourselves friends. I fear we have some rough spots ahead.
