Black Lives Matter Global Network is NOT yet a recognized IRS charity but raises money under the "fiscal sponsorship" of another group, Thousand Currents.
ActBlue Charities is the fundraising charity that purports to raise money for other charities, which in this case is "Black Lives Matter Global Network."
Transparency? So if you want to make a tax-deductible charitable donation directly to Black Lives Matter, you can't. You donate to Act Blue Charities. Act Blue Charities sends this money, allegedly, to another charity, Thousand Currents, which runs BLM as a "fiscal sponsorship."
How does Susan Rosenberg fit into this? She's Vice Chair on the board of Thousand Currents. The result is that tax exempt "charitable" donations are helping to fund the violence and rioting we're seeing.
And who is Susan Rosenberg?
Per Wikipedia, Susan is an "activist." In fact, so active is she that she got 58 years in a federal penitentiary for her "activism." But she got a break--on his last day in office Bill Clinton commuted Susan's sentence to time served, so she was out after 16 years. And you thought there was something controversial about the Roger Stone commutation?
Here's the short version of Rosenberg's "activism" from Wikipedia:
Susan Lisa Rosenberg (born 5 October 1955) is an American activist, writer, and advocate for social justice and prisoners' rights. From the late 1970s into the mid-1980s, Rosenberg was active in the far-left revolutionary terrorist May 19th Communist Organization ("M19CO"), which according to a contemporaneous FBI report "openly advocate[d] the overthrow of the U.S. Government through armed struggle and the use of violence". M19CO provided support to an offshoot of the Black Liberation Army, including in armored truck robberies, and later engaged in bombings of government buildings.
After living as a fugitive for two years, Rosenberg was arrested in 1984 while in possession of a large cache of explosives and firearms. She had also been sought as an accomplice in the 1979 prison escape of Assata Shakur and in the 1981 Brink's robbery that resulted in the deaths of two police and a guard, although she was never charged in either case.
Rosenberg was sentenced to 58 years' imprisonment on the weapons and explosives charges. She spent 16 years in prison, during which she became a poet, author, and AIDS activist. Her sentence was commuted to time served by President Bill Clinton on January 20, 2001, his final day in office.
Neat, huh? The Clintons--the gift that keeps on giving.

According to wikipedia "Susan Lisa Rosenberg (born 5 October 1955) is an American activist, writer, and advocate for social justice and prisoners' rights".ReplyDelete
This is not quite accurate. Based on the rest of her entry I would revise the lead in to say:
Susan Lisa Rosenberg (born 5 October 1955) is a far-left American terrorist, revolutionary, criminal, and convicted felon, suspected of involvement in additional violent crimes involving robbery and felony murder, but never charged, and a friend of Bill's, although more recently, as a cover, she has purported to be an activist, writer, and advocate for social justice and prisoners' rights.
The great thing about Wikipedia is that you can contest or dispute their entries and get them to correct them in the direction of greater accuracy. Let me know how you get on with that.Delete
Haha. Its easier to just spout off on meaninginhistory.blogspot.com.Delete
Although perhaps the day is coming when it matters...
I'm assuming sarcasm on your part, Mark, and to that end I'd add that he'd probably have about as much luck making Rosenberg's wiki entry more accurate from an unwoke point of view as he would doing the same with Tucker Carlson's:Delete

No news here, obviously, but for anything that hurts the left or helps the non-left, wikipedia is an absolute dumpster fire, impervious to any change away from gross propaganda.

Unless it's a certain greater accuracy that "Philip Cross" doesn't want people seeing...
Wikipedia is a great example of today's MSM, where what is omitted from the "story" is just as important as what is included. Facts inconvenient to The Narrative will always be ignored.Delete
It also seems the DOJ is following that approach in its prosecutions. Slowly becoming, not the Department of Justice, but the Department of Prosecutions.
"Days of Rage" (2015) by Bryan Burroughs is a good read through the days of the Weathermen, Black Panthers, Black Liberation Army, Symbionese Liberation Army, FALN, and many other radical groups, and assorted dupes and useful idiots, starting with the SDS in the '60s through to the early '80s.ReplyDelete
A frightening amount of violence--bombings, shootings, robberies, mayhem--on a near-daily basis before the era of 24/7/365 cable and internet.
I haven't read the Antifa Handbook, but no doubt it takes the Port Huron Statement (1962) as a source document of motivation. It was the seminal statement of the so-called New Left, which coincides with today's woke and progressive left--the first draft of which was authored by Tom Hayden.

Yup. And they've taught a new generation in that belief.Delete

Clinton. I try to be fair to him, as I never felt he was the evil that was Obama. Clinton was just a scoundrel. OK, and a sleaze.
But he sure did pardon some bad apples.
OT again, but are you already on to what seems to be the correct identification of Steele's primary subsource?ReplyDelete
What a joke. There's just no way CH team and others can justify this to a jury. Jury nullification or Trump loss is their only way out. And if the "speaking indictment" that I imagine is coming is good enough (and it should be), it should make both possibilities far more remote.
Anything can happen, I know, but I'm convinced more than ever the case for conspiracy will be rock solid, as there's just too much to work with. I'm also convinced there still is a large part of the country (20% or so?) who will feel very different about things if it can be made clear enough Trump really has been innocent, *and victimized*, all along. There should be an Oval Office address or something similar not long after the conspiracy is presented by DOJ, I'd think, and it should be very hard even for our Pravda media to cover things up completely.
I’m sure you’ll be posting on this in time, so I’ll just shut up for now :)
I believe the wait will be worth it. And will have an impact.Delete
It will have a big impact, esp. on folks who seldom vote, but are brought by this news to face music, that this election would be the last one where there's a real contest, if Dems get to finish the Permanent Majority job that SparkleFarts started.Delete
BC--I don't think anything presented to a jury was the endgame. They just needed damning publicity in media to drive Trump from office. Or so they thought.Delete
Hell, Nixon was never impeached by the House. A couple committee votes was all it took for him to resign. But after all the "investigations" Trump looks like the cleanest man in DC.
"anything presented to a jury was the endgame".Delete
Vs. DJT, yes, but we're talking here, about juries trying DS players for conspiracy vs. DJT.
So, indeed, there should be an Oval Office address or something similar, once DoJ brings big news.
