Four Fake Cancer Charities Defrauded $187 Million

A string of cancer charities — the Cancer Fund of America, Cancer Support Services, the Breast Cancer Society and the Children’s Cancer Fund of America — have turned out to be manipulative frauds run by a family of con artists. The money they raised for cancer patients actually went to pay for personal luxuries instead — Disney World trips, jet ski outings, new cars, college tuition and luxury travel.

Only 3 percent of donations went to cancer patients.

Putting funds directly in the hands of cancer patients should take precedence over cancer charity waste, and helping patients find healing strategies that empower their immune system and energy production should be paramount to all the suppressive mainstream treatments constantly being marketed down patients’ throats.

Six Homes, Half a Billion Dollars! The Red Cross in Haiti.

A recent article in ProPublica highlights the scandal of a few years ago in Haiti, with new information and documentation. Mainstream Charity is riddled with waste and corruption. This investigation shows that big organizations are, even at their best, less able to use your money effectively and efficiently than if you just sent your money directly to poor people.

People all over the world are more than capable of solving their problems with a little help. They don’t need accountants, project managers, grant proposal writers, UN programs or any of the other jargon-spouting masses being imposed on them by mainstream charity and government “aid”. They just need some friends to help them out.

U.S. Desertification Caused by Government

[Government, not the Government]

You can see from the work of Bill Mollison and others that it’s quite possible to green the desert without massive infrastructure projects. The present desertification of the South-West of the United States is not a result of “climate change”, it’s the result of misuse of the water that’s always been there, under the ground, regardless of the periodic minor variations in climate.

The second video below gives an idea of what could have happened had common sense prevailed over the short term self-interest of a very few, and what could still happen if people wake up.

Who Benefits From GM Crops?

Short answer, big agriculture, big business and little Bill. Bill Gates along with Monsanto are using their US government to force GM crops on Africa, says a report by FoE International. Small farmers will suffer, even more than they are under the current alleged aid and development projects.

In their press release, FoE says:

“South African farmers have more than 16 years’ experience cultivating GM maize, soya and cotton, but the promise that GM crops would address food security has not been fulfilled. Indeed, South Africa’s food security is reportedly declining with almost half the nation currently categorised as food insecure even though South Africa exports maize,” said Haidee Swanby from the African Centre for Biosafety.

“The South African experience confirms that GM crops can only bring financial benefits for a small number of well-resourced farmers. The vast majority of African farmers are small farmers who cannot afford to adopt expensive crops which need polluting inputs such as synthetic fertilisers and chemicals to perform effectively,” she added.
[strange usage of “effectively” there, maybe she knows what they’re really for!]

…According to the final declaration of the Forum for Food Sovereignty, …”Food sovereignty is the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems. It puts those who produce, distribute and consume food at the heart of food systems and policies rather than the demands of markets and corporations.”

What Would You Do?

What would you do if you
Knew all the things we knew?
Would you stand up for truth?
Or would you turn away too?

And then what if you saw
All of the things that’s wrong?
Would you stand tall and strong?
Or would you turn and walk away?

Because, Shut-Up!

Ok, it’s not really a fallacy but…

If you’re big enough and shout “Shut Up!” loud enough, or threateningly enough sometimes you’ll find some spineless moneygrubbers who will accept it as a valid argument. Sad, greedy people who only care about money are a good target. This is what happened to IrishCentral.com back in February 2014 when they published an article about the obscene “compenstaion” that charity bosses get, and mentioned Rehab CEO Angela Kerins. They described how people in Ireland who know about it are sickened by this abuse of charity money.

Instead of providing an argument–for example showing how this salary was justified, or at least showing how IrishCentral’s article was wrong, they chose the SHUT-UP! argument instead, writing to their service provider and suggesting they might become embroiled in a potential court case. The mercenary cowards of course immediately took the page down. This is what happens to people…

A Mail Online article, “The Great British rake-off… what really happens to the billions YOU donate to charity: Fat cat pay, appalling waste and hidden agendas” was published last November. It goes into some depth about how wasteful many charities are. Exposing how much money is spent on advertising, administration and so on, it details David Craig’s new book: The Great Charity Scandal, which he says “is not an attack on charity, but an attack on charities that put their own interests first”.

Well worth reading, here it is on the Mail Online website,

Amnesty International Try to Overthrow Eritrea Government.

The government and people of Eritrea refuse to play the role of victim that Western governments and aid corporations want them to. Eritrea is refusing “aid” with all its strings, and attempting to build self-reliance. It’s not going along with the bankers’ plans. (See 21 Years And Counting: Eritrea’s Independent Path Towards Sustainable Development, Peace & Cooperation for more on this). You may think that the role of organizations like Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch is philanthropy, or campaigning to improve people’s lives. Getting money from corrupt governments to do their dirty work isn’t something many people think should be on their agendas, but that’s what happens.

Strong evidence is now emerging that these two organizations have been trying to destabilize Eritrea. See
Amnesty International to Instigate Regime Change in Eritrea for more, and follow the links at the end for some background.

Why Rockefellers Aim at Destroying Farmers Worldwide.

Here’s an interview he did for Red Ice Radio (doesn’t cover everything in the article):

Red Cross Scam Exposed by Pro Publica

Filed under: Charity — tribalnetworks @ 9:59 am
Tags: , ,

(NaturalNews) A pair of massive, once-in-a-generation storms lambasted regions of the U.S., leaving in their wake destruction, some death and havoc. Hundreds of thousands of people were without food, shelter and power, many for weeks on end. But Americans responded like they always do after such disasters, whether they occur on home soil or abroad: They opened up their pocketbooks and donated to charities ostensibly aimed at helping victims.

In particular, according to a recent investigative report by ProPublica and National Public Radio, Americans sent the Red Cross hundreds of millions of dollars because they believed that their donations would be well used to relieve the suffering of victims pounded by Superstorm Sandy and Hurricane Isaac.

It didn’t happen. Per the report:

The Red Cross botched key elements of its mission after Sandy and Isaac, leaving behind a trail of unmet needs and acrimony, according to an investigation…. The charity’s shortcomings were detailed in confidential reports and internal emails, as well as accounts from current and former disaster relief specialists.

In addition, the investigation found that Red Cross officials in the nation’s capital deepened the charity’s incoherent response by “diverting assets for public relations purposes,” according to this internal Red Cross report. Furthermore, the distribution of relief supplies was “politically driven.”

Red Cross supervisors during Isaac directed dozens of trucks that are most commonly used to deliver aid to be driven around mostly empty, “just to be seen,” according to one of the drivers, Jim Dunham. “We were sent way down on the Gulf with nothing to give,” Dunham told investigative reporters. In many ways, he added, the Red Cross’s relief effort was “worse than the storm.”
