The Secretive American Red Cross
Sharyl Atkisson.com, by Sharyl Atkisson

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/6/2014 9:43:27 AM

According to ProPublica in a newly-published article: “Just how badly does the American Red Cross want to keep secret how it raised and spent over $300 million after Hurricane Sandy? The charity has hired a fancy law firm to fight a public request we filed with New York state, arguing that information about its Sandy activities is a ‘trade secret’…As we’ve reported, the Red Cross releases few details about how it spends money after big disasters. That makes it difficult to figure out whether donor dollars are well spent. The Red Cross did give some information about Sandy spending to

Never donate to the RC. We give to the Salvation Army instead.

Few people realize that the American National Red Cross IS NOT THE SAME AS YOUR LOCAL unit which accepts blood donations. Be informed.

My sister used to work with a former executive for the Red Cross. He told her NEVER donate to them. Very little of the money gets to where it was intended. Since then, it is the Salvation Army for us. IIRC their executive director is volunteer or gets very little in pay, I can´t remember which. ARC executive gets BIG bucks.

In the aftermath of Sandy, the msm was constantly explaining the Red Cross´ method of helping- "Send Only Cash", nothing else will help. Cash spends easily. You can buy emergency supplies with it like political influence, homes in Hawaii, first class travel (for business of course), and endless handouts to fellow like minded charities and political bedfellows. How did the Sandanistas become armed? Charity donations after the earthquake in the 70´s.

to 7&8, I spent years as a purely volunteer instructor in First Aid and Emergency Care, CPR instruction, etc. The issue you mentioned is frankly one of those things that the ANRC gets blamed for, as you have. The truth is rather different. The charging for coffee and donuts was ordered by that saint of the Libs and Progressives, Franklin Delano Roosevelt (spit, spit). Seems the Brits, etc. did not have a tradition of the civilians stepping up and raising private funds and programs to help the soldiers. They were miffed at programs early in the war to provide such things to our GI´s for free, and raised Cain over it. So, FDR (spit, spit) made charging for such a condition of having any access whatsoever to the soldiers. Blame FDR and the Democrap party for this one.
Likewise, I can´t speak of the higher-up leaders, and I haven´t been involved even at a local level for more than 20 years. But the other volunteers and the local people in general, the ones involved in blood draw and disaster services and such, were some of the finest people I´ve met outside of fellow Gideons (and there was some overlap). So don´t slam them for allegations, perhaps accurate ones, of bad behavior at the National offices. By the way, I´ve also heard disturbing allegations about the very high compensation of the top dogs at some of the operations mentioned in previous posts with approval. So exercise sensible caution.

A quick check of the national organization´s most recent tax return available (2013) shows they had revenue of $3.4B and spent half of that on compensation ($1.77B). The CEO pulled in $622,361 in total compensation.

The Salvation Army, Aunt Sally does more with less on the widest area than anyone. Give to them generously. BUT and it´s a big But, please give blood any where you can. It really IS the gift of life, there´s no synthetic. If the Red Cross is running a drive - go give them a pint. They can´t waste that on executive perks!

The Salvation Army on the other hand, is a very hard working and effective group who does NOT over pay their personnel. They (SA) are a very worthy destination of your charitable contributions.

The Democrats’ Assault on Free Speech
Politico, by Sen. Mitch McConnell    Original Article

Throughout August, senators had the opportunity to travel around their states and listen to the concerns of their constituents. The American people have a lot on their minds these days — important issues they expect the Democrat-run Senate to address: things like high unemployment, threats of terrorism, rising health care costs and the ongoing crisis at the border. Unfortunately, hardly any of those things will be on the Senate’s agenda when it returns Monday. That’s because the Democrats who control the Senate say they’re more interested in repealing the free speech protections the First Amendment guarantees to all Americans. Their goal is

Boo who? Fans attending men’s college soccer games in New England are expected not to boo if they don’t like something on the field, according to a recent letter sent out by the New England Small College Athletic Conference. "As a supporter, we ask you not engage in any unsportsmanlike actions, which include booing, taunting, profanity, rude language or gestures, or any other action that could be potentially construed as negative or confrontational," the NESCAC letter read. NESCAC called for a similar policy in 2011, asking that game officials "firmly address issues of unsporting behavior and negative action." The letter, signed by 11 Conference

One day after President Barack Obama announced that he is delaying executive action on immigration, top lawmakers urged the President to ditch his plans for an executive action altogether and work with Congress. Sen. Dianne Feinstein indicated she´d prefer the President not act unilaterally at all. "The way this should be done is legislatively," the California Democrat said on CNN´s "State of the Union." She said anything done through presidential action would be challenged in the courts. Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Michigan, agreed, adding the President is being "prudent" by not acting. "I think that was wise. He needs to work with Congress on this,"

ATLANTA -- S. Truett Cathy, the billionaire founder of the privately held Chick-fil-A restaurant chain that famously closes on Sundays but also drew unwanted attention on gay marriage in recent years because of his family´s conservative views, died early Monday, a company spokesman said. He was 93. Chick-fil-A spokesman Mark Baldwin told The Associated Press that Cathy died at home surrounded by members of his family. Funeral plans had not yet been finalized, he said. Cathy opened his first postwar diner in an Atlanta suburb in 1946 and by 1967 he had founded and opened his first Chick-fil-A Inc. restaurant in Atlanta.

As the 2016 White House race begins to form, more than a few dark horse GOP candidates could end up breaking away from the pack. With the Republican presidential field wide open, the campaign could be a repeat 2012, when even candidates thought to be longshots briefly stole the spotlight and spiked in the polls. “We don´t even have anywhere near a front-runner and it doesn´t look like one is going to break free,” said GOP strategist Ford O’Connell. “There´s a potential opening for a lot of these wild-card candidates.” Republican National Committee rules have changed since then, shrinking the debate schedule that

WASHINGTON — President Obama’s decision to delay executive action on immigration until after the November elections was the end result of weeks of back and forth within the Democratic Party, and fears the actions would damage the party’s election prospects. According to an activist familiar with details of the decision to delay the immigration announcement, Obama’s political advisers became concerned with internal polling in the last few weeks for a handful of states on the midterm elections. The polling for the vulnerable Democrats was so close — two points apart — that they were afraid the announcement could “put it over the

TV is increasingly for the old, and the Internet is for the young, according to new research by media analyst Michael Nathanson of Moffett Nathanson Research. The median age of a broadcast or cable television viewer during the 2013-2014 TV season was 44.4 years old, a 6 percent increase in age from four years earlier. Audiences for the major broadcast network shows are much older and aging even faster, with a median age of 53.9 years old, up 7 percent from four years ago. These television viewers are aging faster than the U.S. population, Nathanson points out. The median age in the

DONETSK, Ukraine -- Strong explosions were heard early Sunday on the outskirts of the main rebel-held city in eastern Ukraine near the airport, raising new fears that a cease-fire signed two days ago is on the verge of collapse. Blasts powerful enough to be heard in downtown Donetsk came from the area near the airport, which has been under the control of government troops since May and has come under unremitting attacks from pro-Russia separatist rebels since then. The cease-fire had appeared to be holding for much of the day on Saturday, but shelling started late at night. A rebel statement said

Barack Obama has always been good with words, but he’s not good enough to give coherence to his ramshackle foreign policy. Not surprisingly words have failed the president (or, to be more accurate, the president has failed words) most conspicuously when it comes to the aspect of his policy that’s in greatest disarray — his policy regarding terrorism. First, Obama admitted that he didn’t have a strategy for dealing with ISIS. On his next try, after initially stating that his objective is to degrade and destroy ISIS, Obama ended up saying that his goal was merely to reduce it to

Immigrant-rights groups reacted furiously Saturday after the White House made clear President Obama will not take unilateral action on immigration before November’s elections, nodding at the political realities of the issue as he punted on the key policy questions. With a number of key Senate races in GOP-leaning states, Democrats had feared that action now would anger voters and cost them control of the upper chamber, and had privately begged the White House to hold off on any move to halt deportations. But immigration activists said it’s the latest in a series of moves by Mr. Obama to shove their

In a few days president Obama will unveil his strategy to destroy ISIS to a waiting public. (Snip) However the basic outlines of the strategy itself have emerged from information already available to the press. A Los Angeles Times story suggests that Obama will rely on proxies to fight ISIS at three levels: on the ground, within the region and in the West. Kerry invokes comparisons to the Sunni Awakening, seeking to recall the days when al-Qaeda in Iraq was beaten by George Bush. Obama plans to organize the Sunni Arabs to fight ISIS.
