Media outlets often ask, “who funds conservative group x”. They never seem to ask who funds lefty groups. But beyond the usual mega-donors, Ford Foundation, George Soros, and Fortune 500 companies, there’s an even grimmer answer: the government does.
Taxpayer money diverted to lefty political organizations is still the biggest source of funding for the Left. And the thievery is only becoming more blatant.
“Today, the Biden-Harris administration announced approximately $2 billion in funding available to support community-driven projects that deploy clean energy, strengthen climate resilience, and build capacity for communities to tackle environmental and climate justice challenges. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Community Change Grants are the single largest investment in environmental justice going directly to communities in history, and will advance collaborative efforts to achieve a healthier, safer, and more prosperous future for all. These funds, part of President Biden’s Investing in America agenda, are made possible by the President’s Inflation Reduction Act—the biggest-ever investment in clean energy and climate action.”
Let’s translate that into English. Minority community groups linked to the Democrat Party will be showered with taxpayer money on the condition that the right guy wins in 2024.
This corrupt arrangement will be paid for by taxpayers making it twice as corrupt.
The Community Change Grants deliver on President Biden’s historic commitment to advance equity and justice, including his Justice40 Initiative. The Community Change Grants will deliver 100 percent of the benefits of this program to disadvantaged communities that are marginalized by underinvestment and overburdened by pollution.
East Palestine need not apply, but a whole lot of that money will go to Detroit and Cook County.
What do you need to do to get hold of a piece of that $2 billion pie?
Your community group needs to engage in “climate resiliency and adaptation”, that means encouraging people to paint their houses white or get better insulation, “mitigating climate and health risks from urban heat islands, extreme heat, wood heater emissions, and wildfire events”, that means installing air conditioners in their facilities, and “facilitating the engagement of disadvantaged communities in state and federal advisory groups, workshops, rulemakings, and other public processes” or in other words, community organizing.
But here’s the kicker.
“The NOFO will be open for a year, closing on November 21, 2024”
That’s interesting timing. There could hardly be a more explicit way of saying, if you want to get your money, make sure Biden wins.
