It pays to be a race hustler: Al Sharpton received $1M in pay from his own charity

He needs that big salary as he still owes $698,470.99 in back federal taxes for three of his companies.

From Fox News: He’s the million-dollar minister. The Rev. Al Sharpton raked in $1,046,948 from his own charity last year, according to National Action Network’s latest tax filings obtained by The Post.

Sharpton got a $324,000 salary — 32% higher than his 2017 pay in addition to a $159,596 bonus and $563,352 in “other compensation.”

The Harlem-based nonprofit — which Sharpton controls as president and CEO — said the extra cash was to make up for the years from 2004 to 2017 when he didn’t get his full pay. NAN said it hired an executive compensation firm that determined the good reverend was owed $1.252 million — but he was generously willing to take $500,000 less.

Sharpton and the nonprofit’s board also agreed “he has now been fully compensated for all the years he was underpaid and received no bonus,” the NAN statement said.

The sharp-dressing, silver-tongued preacher defended the windfall before taking the stage for his weekly rally at NAN’s House of Justice in Harlem, an event where attendees throw cash in the collection bucket at the reverend’s behest.

“Fifteen years, you are talking about since 2004 when I came back after running for president,” he said. “For anybody else it would be laughable.”

He said he also deserved the 2018 raise. “It’s a six-day-a-week job and several hours a day and when [the compensation firm] compared it to other companies, other nonprofits, that’s the salary that they would get,” he said.

The firebrand activist and MSNBC host was not exactly earning minimum wage in recent years. The last year he went without a salary was 2008, and he has made well into the six figures every year since, tax documents show.

He certainly wasn’t coveting his neighbor’s paycheck in 2017, when his NAN salary came to $244,661, or the year before, when he was paid $250,000 plus a $437,555 bonus. NAN justified the bonus at the time saying it was designed to make up for a lack of full compensation, including no retirement or benefits packages over the years.

The nonprofit also noted in 2016 that Sharpton’s average yearly pay of $283,543 from 2007 through 2016 fell within the competitive range of those who held similar positions.

In 2014, Sharpton got much more than the average pay — $348,244 plus a $64,400 bonus, tax filings show.

Triggered: Oregon high school stages walk out due to offensive language & Chick-fil-A food truck

If you are a Christian and don’t believe in homosexual marriage you WILL be punished. Punished for hurting the feelings of those who don’t feel safe with your beliefs.

In West Linn, Oregon (just south of Portland), students staged a walkout because of what they believe is damaging actions/beliefs and they just want to feel safe. They claim there’s been a rise in “transphobic” language, bullying and that a transgender student had his/her/it (I’m unsure of their preferred pronoun) car vandalized.

Then there’s another HORROR: There’s been a Chick-fil-A food cart at home football games. That will soon come to an end because yummy chicken sandwiches are triggering.

Read the whole story here or watch below.

Kids today are so fragile. Better grow up fast young ones because the REAL WORLD doesn’t offer safe spaces for your precious feelings.

Seattle transit agency dropping term “red line” because of racist implications

If you are a woke progressive, you can find racism in everything.

Take for example in Seattle: The local transit agency, Sound Transit, has decided to drop the term “red line” for a north-south route. This is because of an association with the racist term “redlining.”

According to Wikipedia, redlining refers to “the systematic denial of various services to residents of specific, often racially associated, neighborhoods or communities, either directly or through the selective raising of prices. While the best known examples of redlining have involved denial of financial services such as banking or insurance, other services such as health care (see also Race and health) or even supermarkets have been denied to residents.”

Apparently Sound Transit heard from a lot of community members who are very upset with the term red line. From their press release:

“As the term Red Line became more visible we heard concerns from members of our community, that this term carries unfortunate associations with the punitive practice by lenders of “redlining.”

Redlining describes the historical practice engaged in by banks to withhold home-loan funds or insurance from neighborhoods deemed to be poor economic risks. These neighborhoods were primarily comprised of racial and ethnic minorities, who were denied the opportunity to build generational wealth through home ownership.

These discriminatory practices caused widespread damage and inequities that have had a lingering impact to this day. In response, we are going to identify a new system for identifying our routes. It’s the right thing to do, and we are grateful for the community members who encouraged us to take this action.

While numerous transit systems around our country have red lines based on the widespread practice of using primary colors to label transit services, at Sound Transit we want to build a system that welcomes everyone. The term Red Line clearly works against this goal.”

Read their whole press release here.

I’m curious as to what color they will name the new line. I’m assuming the following are out due to political correctness: White, yellow and brown (for obvious reasons), blue and grey (associated with depression), and orange (think #OrangeManBad).

No matter what color they end up with, I’m sure some woke progressive – somewhere, somehow – will find a reason to be offended.

Sunday Devotional: If anyone was unwilling to work, neither should that one eat

2 Thessalonians 3:7-12

Brothers and sisters:
You know how one must imitate us.
For we did not act in a disorderly way among you,
nor did we eat food received free from anyone.
On the contrary, in toil and drudgery, night and day
we worked, so as not to burden any of you.
Not that we do not have the right.
Rather, we wanted to present ourselves as a model for you,
so that you might imitate us.
In fact, when we were with you,
we instructed you that if anyone was unwilling to work,
neither should that one eat.
We hear that some are conducting themselves
among you in a disorderly way,
by not keeping busy but minding the business of others.
Such people we instruct and urge in the Lord Jesus Christ
to work quietly and to eat their own food.

God’s greatest gift to humanity, aside from the gift of life, is the terrifying gift of free will—the favoring of one thing and the eschewal of another, informed by reason.

The Latin root of the word “terrify” is terrificare. To “terrify” is to cause to feel extreme fear. And terrifying precisely is God’s gift of free will, for when our free will is exercised to evil, the consequences are disastrous.

Terrifying though it is, free will is given to humans (and angels) because only by freely electing to believe in, obey, honor, and love God do the preceding acts have authenticity and meaning. For what good is a love that is coerced? As St. Thomas Aquinas put it, “Man has free will: otherwise counsels, exhortations, commands, prohibitions, rewards and punishments would be in vain.”¹

¹Summa Theologia of St. Thomas Aquinas, Volume One (New York: Benziger Brothers, 1947), p. 418.

The above reading from St. Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians is a powerful statement against the institution of government-enforced welfare, an institution that has become colossal and immovable in our time in the form of the bloated welfare state.

Christians are exhorted to be charitable. Charity is something voluntarily given to help the poor and the needy, which studies show conservatives give more in both money and services than liberals. (Conservatives also believe more in free will and have stronger will power.)

But welfare, the revenue for which is extracted via confiscatory taxation, is not charity because it is enforced, that is, involuntary. And as St. Paul pointed out in his letter to Philemon, a good deed that is coerced is no longer good:

I did not want to do anything without your consent,
so that the good you do might not be forced but voluntary.

And yet liberal Christians precisely support this enforced charity — which is an oxymoron — in the name of “social justice”. Paradoxically, those same liberal Christians are “pro-choice” when it comes to the government-sanctioned murder of unborn and entirely innocent human beings who most certainly are denied any choice in the matter.

For the martyrdom of Paul, see “St. Paul, whom Christ struck blind”.

May the peace and love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you,

Organization dedicated to preserving our environment creating mural of teen climate change activist in San Francisco

OneAtmosphere.org claims on their web site they are “dedicated to preserving our environment.”

So much so they are going to help clean up the streets of San Francisco covered in urine and feces, garbage and drug needles.

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeell, not exactly.

They’re going to paint a mural of teen activist Greta Thunberg. Because that will solve all of our world’s environmental problems – or something.

According to CNN, it’s exactly what is needed to “make anyone stop and consider their environmental impact.”

CNN claims the mural of Greta is “gazing straight into our souls.”

The artist behind the mural is doing it because, “we’re pretty much at the beginning of our extinction, so if we don’t do anything right now, it’s going to be too late.”

Quick everyone, grab your paint brushes and get to San Francisco to save our extinction! STAT!!!

Wall Street Journal wades in on Meghan Markle controversy

The toxin that is Meghan Markle (and her thoroughly- and willingly-emasculated husband, Prince Harry) is no longer confined to the British Isles. Even Wall Street Journal is weighing in on the unending controversies she deliberately has fomented.

Gerard Baker is the Editor at Large of The Wall Street Journal. A former Editor-in-Chief of Dow Jones and The Wall Street Journal (2014-2018) and former U.S. editor and an assistant editor of the Times of London, Baker covered economics for the BBC and worked as an economist at the Bank of England and Lloyds. He  holds a degree in philosophy, politics and economics from Corpus Christi College, Oxford University.

Below is Gerard Baker’s “An American Duchess Takes to the Barricades,” Wall Street Journal, November 1, 2019, which is behind a paywall. Fortunately, The Charlatan Duchess took screenshots of the article.

Meghan and her enabler Prince Harry blame her negative press on racism — the Left’s default catch-all excuse.

But it should be noted that before she snatched the British royal, Markle had never identified as biracial. Instead, her actress bio/resume identifies her as “Caucasian” (white).

Now she wears her half-black racial identity as a badge of honor and wields it as a bludgeon against her critics, including the UK taxpayers whom she no longer fools. Just read the overwhelmingly negative readers’ comments on any article about her and Harry in the Daily Mail, such as here. See also “Brits sign petition to stop taxpayer funding of Meghan Markle & Prince Harry“.

Little known is the fact that Meghan is so proud of her black ancestry that she had cosmetic surgery to shave her bulbous negroid nose. Below are pics of her when she was a student at Immaculate Heart Middle School, a private school for girls in Los Angeles, California.

Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle Sr., had paid for her private school tuition at the Hollywood Little Red Schoolhouse and Immaculate Heart Middle School. Markle also paid for Meghan’s considerable tuition and expenses at another private institution, Northwestern University.

During a speech at the University of South Pacific in Fiji in October 2019, Meghan said she had paid for her Northwestern University tuition through scholarships, financial aid, and her campus job. That was a lie, one of many from the pathological liar.

In September 2019, Thomas Markle Sr. set the record straight. He told the Mail on Sunday (which Meghan and Harry are suing) what Meghan claims is “completely untrue” and that “I paid every penny of her tuition [at Northwestern] and I have the bank statements to prove it.”

Mr. Markle also paid for Meghan’s internship at the US embassy in Buenos Aires when she was a junior at Northwestern:

“I paid for her trips to Spain and England. I paid for her internship in Argentina. I always upheld my responsibilities as a father. Meghan’s comments about paying her way through college are offensive to me. I don’t want anything from Meghan or Harry but I’m not going to shut up until the whole truth is out there. I will continue to contradict anything said about me that isn’t true.”

Meghan’s parents, Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland, divorced when she was six. She was brought up entirely by her father, whom she has “ghosted” and didn’t invite to her London wedding. Although “climate-change activist” Harry doesn’t hesitate to fly on gas-guzzling carbon-spewing private jets, he had never bothered to meet his 75-year-old father-in-law, who is bankrupt, in poor health, and lives alone in Rosarito, Mexico.

Doria was the only member of Meghan’s biological family who was invited to the wedding. Meghan has “ghosted” not just her father, but also her paternal half-sister and half-brother, both of whom have warned the British royalty and the world about how destructive Meghan is.

Man who identifies as female named NCAA Conference “Female” Athlete of the Week

From Daily Mail: A transgender female NCAA cross country runner has been named the Female Athlete of the Week.

June Eastwood, a University of Montana senior, has been named Female Athlete of the Week by the Big Sky Conference on Tuesday after excelling in a race held on October 19. At the Santa Clara Bronco Invitational in Sunnyvale, California, the 22-year-old finished second in a group of 204 female runners.

The Big Sky Conference said she clocked a time of 20:86 in the 6km race and was instrumental in helping the team place seventh in the overall event.

Previously, Eastwood competed on the University of Montana’s men’s team before identifying as a transgender female and being allowed a spot on the women’s team.

As a man, she was a standout athlete throughout her younger years and won state titles in multiple men’s races. She competed in her first female division run on August 31 of this year.

‘(I’m) nervous and excited. Nervous for what that means and how people will react, but excited because I haven’t competed in 15 months, and excited to get this started,’ Eastwood told Bozeman Daily Chronicles.

The debate surrounding transgender athletes in sports, which are generally based on gender, has become a hot button issue in daily discourse.

Those who oppose transgender females competing in sports usually cite hormonal factors like higher testosterone levels in trans women and physiological features like height and weight. Supporters point out that sports of all levels have been categorized by gender and transgender females should compete in the gender division they identify as.

In June’s case, and other collegiate transgender athletes, the NCAA’s policy allows male athletes to compete in women’s athletics under certain guidelines.

The policy dictates that male runners who identify as transgender women must suppress testosterone levels for a full calendar year before competing in women’s sports.

In a 2011 handbook, the NCAA sought advice from medical professionals familiar with the ‘complexities of the transitioning student-athlete.’

It subsequently determined that it’s not warranted to assume: ‘that being born with a male body automatically gives a transgender woman an unfair advantage when competing against non-transgender women.’

However, other medical professionals have said that transgender woman have an advantage over cis-gendered women.

In a study in the Journal of Medical Ethics, they said there is little evidence to show testosterone mitigates past muscle mass. ‘In addition, the phenomenon of muscle memory means muscle mass and strength can be rebuilt with previous strength exercise making it easier to regain muscle mass later in life even after long intervening periods of inactivity and mass loss,’ the authors said according to the Daily Caller.

As it stands now, more research will need to conducted in the upcoming years to fully understand the several factors surrounding the topic.

After word of Eastwood’s accolade spread, people across social media had varying reactions.
Some people supported Eastwood and congratulated her on the accomplishment. One person wrote: ‘Honestly never thought I’d say this but “Go lady Griz!!” Congrats June!’

‘Looking forward to watching her run- she is an amazing athlete,’ another wrote. A Twitter user said: ‘Super excited and proud that June gets to experience this journey at the U of M. Best of luck!’

Others said the recognition was uncalled for. ‘This is hurting female competitors, and is completely unfair,’ one person said.

In May, the House of Representatives voted to approve the Equality Act, a policy that would requite all schools to allow male athletes who identify as transgender women to compete in women’s sports.

Regardless, Eastwood and the University of Montana team will be competing in the Big Sky Conference Championship.

Bill Gates, Emma Watson and Oprah Winfrey among ten stars with colossal carbon footprints

From Daily Mail: Harry Potter actress Emma Watson has been named by researchers as a greenhouse gas ‘super-emitter’.

Swedish academics analysed the carbon footprints of ten famous people who travel the globe.

Miss Watson, the only Briton on the list, had the tenth worst environmental impact out of the group of celebrities selected, based on their social media accounts. She flew 14 times in 2017 and travelled 42,253 miles, all on scheduled airlines, spending 71 hours in the air, the researchers calculated.

Her carbon footprint from flying alone was 15.1 tons of CO2 – three times that of the global average from all activities.

In her work as a United Nations spokesman, Miss Watson has called for everyone to help the world achieve the UN’s 17 global goals – which include ending extreme poverty, fighting inequality and stopping climate change.

Topping the list of celebrity greenhouse gas super-emitters was Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates, with a whopping carbon footprint of more than 1,600 tons of CO2. He took 59 flights in 2017, travelling 213,130 miles, mostly on his private Bombardier BD-700 jet, which he describes as his ‘big splurge’ and which seats 19 passengers.

The figures, published in the journal Annals of Tourism Research, are estimates for 2017 based on the celebrities’ pictures and posts on their social media accounts such as Twitter and Instagram, so may not cover all their travel, the academics admit.

Lead author Steffan Gossling, of Lund University said he was inspired by fellow Swede Greta Thunberg.

The teenage climate change activist has resolved not to fly, showing that celebrities do not need to leap on jets so frequently, he said. He added: ‘As Greta Thunberg affirmed early on, ‘the bigger your carbon footprint, the bigger your moral duty’.’

Miss Watson, one of only three on the celebrity list to stick to scheduled air travel, supports environmental projects to compensate for her jet-setting. A spokesman for the actress said: ‘Emma pays to offset all of her air travel carbon emissions through ClimateCare.org.’

P&G continues their path to being the wokest: Always removes packaging’s female symbol to be “inclusive”

Yeah, this is happening. And of course it’s coming from Proctor & Gamble.

From Yahoo: A leading sanitary product brand has announced its decision to remove a feminine logo from packaging, in order to be more inclusive.

Always, owned by Proctor & Gamble, will remove the feminine Venus symbol – a sign derived from astrological symbols often used to represent females – from its packaging. The symbol is currently used on the packaging of individual sanitary towels, in certain multipacks sold by the brand.

This move is out of consideration for transgender and non-binary people who use the products.

It follows a series of complaints on Twitter from transgender activists. Campaigners Melly Boom and Ben Saunders were among the first to call out the company for having a female symbol on their packaging, according to the Daily Mail. Both individuals have since made their accounts private. (COWARDS!)

In a letter to Saunders, which has since been shared online, Sheryl, a member of the Always team, confirmed the new packaging design will begin to replace the old one from December 2019 onwards, with the newer designs distributed everywhere by February 2020.

However, not everyone is on board with the change, with some others are calling to boycott Always over it. Opponents are arguing that the change is unfair because the “vast majority” of sanitary towel users are women.”

Read the whole story here.

I guess all the feminists who are proud to be women are going to have to remove these in order not to offend anyone:
