America’s Mafia Democracy?: Is American Government Being Run Like A Mafia Organization?

I don’t know Mr. Franzese personally he is just the source of this very informative book. And if this is true, and it appears to be supported by the facts, this book is only confirming what the Bible says in Isaiah 1:5-7. Mr. Franzese is a brilliant man but it’s not surprising because you have to be to run, head, or be a major player in an organized criminal empire like the Mafia.

It’s admirable how he has now completely turned his life around and is now using all the knowledge he’s acquired to accomplish good in the world. The truth of the matter is many of the leaders of that organization were brilliant calculating individuals in their own right. It’s just unfortunate that many of them used it for the wrong reasons.

This book “Mafia Democracy” is well written and very informative and sheds light on the deep-seated corruption within the American Government. And is a must-read for anyone who wants an in-depth look into how the government actually operates. It also offers solutions on how to get the country back on the right track.

The Shooter Killed Whites And Blacks But Spared What Appeared To Be A Homosexual Employee At The End Of The Video And Refused To Shoot Him? Was The Shooter A Homosexual Man? (WARNING!!! The Link Below Leads To Extremely Violent And Graphic Content!! View At Your Own Risk!!!)

Could This Be A Response To Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoots Call For Violence?

Let me start out by saying I don’t support or condone any acts of violence against any individual or group. This is a very sad and tragic event and I pray for the victims and their families. There are so many unanswered questions regarding this shooting. And the fact that the shooter killed blacks and whites but apologized to what appeared to be a homosexual employee at the end of the video and refused to shoot him is very troubling. He even killed a white woman at the outset but refused to kill what appeared to be a gay man?

When you consider how God’s word outlines how sneaky, vindictive, diabolical, and evil, this community is it makes you wonder if all the posts and manifestos were intended to create a deceptive and a false narrative that he was racist but instead in reality a homosexual man angered by what he viewed as abuse from those who rightfully and justifiably disagreed with his lifestyle.

I would assume the church-going ladies were long-time customers of the store who probably regularly shopped there at specific times and on specific days. Did the employee who was spared by the gunman know the shooter? And could the employee maybe, possibly, have notified the shooter when the church-goers were in the store?

And maybe notified the shooter that others (both employees and customers) who rightfully and justifiably disagreed with the homosexual lifestyle were in the store as well? Certainly, the homosexual employee would have information about who were LGBTQ supporters and detractors as a result of his daily contact with employees and even customers?

And after all, him claiming to be a racist would take the focus off of the homosexual community if, in reality, he was an angry gay man who sought revenge against those who rightfully and justifiably disagreed with his lifestyle. This scenario is not far-fetched at all and would certainly be consistent with the kind of distorted, vindictive, and diabolical behavior many in the LGBTQ community display which is evident by numerous posts on this site of the numerous news headlines that confirm it.

In addition to how the Bible describes how purely evil anyone who is given over to this kind of sexual perversion is. Romans 1:18-32. The link below shows the shooting in full. Please be warned it is extremely graphic and violent and hard to watch!!! That’s why I refused to post it directly on my site. But I felt it necessary to post a link so visitors can see that the shooter intentionally killed both blacks and whites but refused to kill what appeared to be a gay employee at the end of the video.

And even apologized to him. Did they know each other and were they working together in some capacity? And was the shooter a gay man or gay supporter himself? I think all possibilities need to be thoroughly investigated. And let’s not forget lesbian mayor Lori Lightfoot did a call to arms( or a request for a violent pushback using firearms) to the gay community.

If she is bold enough to do a call for violence publicly she is certainly doing it and encouraging it privately. Regardless if she tries to walk it back publicly now. Out of the mouth the heart proceedeth. I’m not emphatically claiming this is the case it’s just something to think about. And to thoroughly look into.

By WILL STEWART AND ADAM SOLOMONS FOR MAILONLINE

PUBLISHED: 04:38 EDT, 14 May 2022 | UPDATED: 05:47 EDT, 15 May 2022

Vladimir Putin told the President of Finland he is making a ‘mistake’ by joining NATO as it faces ‘no security threats’ in a phone call this morning.

And in a speech on the 80th day of the war in Ukraine, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said: ‘The collective West has announced a total hybrid war on us. 

‘It is difficult to forecast how long this will all last, but it is clear that the consequences will be felt by everybody without exception.’

Finland and Sweden’s efforts to join NATO met a hurdle when Turkish President Erdogan said he could not support their entry bids because of Kurdish terrorist organisations operating in the Nordic countries.

All 30 NATO member states must sign off on each new entrant.

Erdogan’s top foreign policy advisor clarified today that the country is ‘not closing the door’ on the countries’ bids.

Ibrahim Kalin: ‘We are not closing the door. But we are basically raising this issue as a matter of national security for Turkey.’

The Kremlin attack dog added: ‘We’ve done everything to avoid a direct clash but the challenge has been thrown to us and we accept it. Cancel culture against everything Russia is being used against us.’

‘We are doing everything we can to defend the interests of our citizens abroad. Ukraine is an instrument, a tool, to contain Russia’s peaceful development,’ he said.

As US President Joe Biden held a joint call with Finland’s leaders on Friday to support their NATO application, Russian officials responded with furious bluster, with one threatening to reduce the US to ‘nuclear ashes’ if America ‘threatens’ the Russian state. 

Sergei Lavrov told a press conference that Westerners will oppose Russia ‘to the last Ukrainian’Lavrov: ‘Collective West have announced a total hybrid

‘The West is opposing Russia to the last Ukrainian, especially the United States which is [fighting] from beyond the ocean,’ said Lavrov.

‘Now [Secretary General Jens] Stoltenberg, through the mouth of Liz Truss, say NATO has responsibility for global security issues.’

Finnish President Sauli Niinistö said his conversation with Putin was ‘conducted without aggravations’ as both parties worked to ‘avoid tensions’.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and cyber-attacks on Finland and Sweden have ‘altered the security environment’ in Helsinki, Putin was told.

According to a Russian readout of the call, Putin said: ‘Abandoning the traditional policy of military neutrality would be a mistake, since there are no threats to Finland’s security.’

It wasn’t revealed how long the call went on or whether Niinisto had consulted other world leaders before speaking to Putin.Finnish President Sauli Niinistö (pictured at a press conference last week) initiated the call

A senior Putin ally threatened to fire nuclear weapons at Britain, claiming it would take just three minutes.

Finland, whose President today called Putin to reveal his plans to join NATO, would be wiped out in seconds, Duma defence committee deputy chairman Aleksey Zhuravlyov boasted.

Zhuravlyov’s wild threats signal frustrations at Putin’s faltering invasion of Ukraine – and ire at Finland’s NATO bid.

The news came as Russia cut off electricity supplies to Finland this morning. The Nordic country imports ten per cent of its electricity from Russia.

A readout from the Finnish president’s office stated: ‘President Niinistö told President Putin how fundamentally the Russian demands in late 2021 aiming at preventing countries from joining NATO and Russia’s massive invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 have altered the security environment of Finland.

‘President Niinistö noted that he had told President Putin already in their first meeting in 2012 that every independent nation maximizes its security. This is what is happening now, too.Turkish President Erdogan (pictured last week) stunned NATO members when he announced Turkey would not support Sweden and Finland's bids to join the bloc. His spokesperson clarified today: 'We are not closing the door'+

Mr Niinistö added: ‘The conversation was direct and straight-forward and it was conducted without aggravations. Avoiding tensions was considered important.’

Russian power flows to Finland stopped as the state-owned importer has not received payments.

RAO Nordic had warned on Friday: ‘Unfortunately, we are forced to note that for the volumes which have been sold on Nord Pool exchange since May 6 funds have not yet been credited to our bank account.’

There’s enough electricity in Finland even without imports from Russia, according to Fingrid Oy, which operates the country’s transmission system. 

Those flows have recently accounted for around ten per cent of consumption, it said in a statement.

Zhuravlyov told Russian state media: ‘If Finland wants to join this bloc, then our goal is absolutely legitimate – to question the existence of this state. This is logical.

‘If the United States threatens our state, it’s good: here is the Sarmat [Satan-2 missile] for you, and there will be nuclear ashes from you if you think that Russia should not exist.

‘And Finland says that it is at one with the USA. Well, get in line.

‘The Finns in general should be grateful to Russia for their statehood, for the fact that Finland exists as a country.’Finland will become the sixth NATO member to share a land border with Russian territory

Asked if Russia would now rebase nuclear weapons onto its border with Finland, he said: ‘What for? We don’t need to.

‘We can hit with a Sarmat from Siberia, and even reach the UK.

‘And if we strike from Kaliningrad… the hypersonic’s reaching time is 200 seconds – so go ahead, guys.

‘On the Finnish border we will have not strategic weapons, but Kinzhal-class, one that will reach Finland in 20 seconds, or even 10 seconds.’

He said Russia would massively strengthen its military forces on its western flank.The Satan-2 Sarmat missile is a 208-ton, 15,880mph intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM)

‘This is natural. If so far we had not predicted possible hostilities on the part of Finland, then now they are quite possible.

Who is Aleksey Zhuravlyov?

Fiery Putin ally on Russian parliament’s defence committee has boasted about how quickly nukes can reach Finland and the UK.

In December last year he called for United States Congressman Ruben Gallego to be kidnapped and jailed for his support of arming and training the Ukrainian military.

A month later he claimed Russia should put nuclear weapons in Cuba and Venezuela as a response to military aid from NATO given to Ukraine and Georgia.

He is chairman of the Rodina political party, a far right nationalist party, which supports Vladimir Putin in the State Duma.

In a tweet sharing the video with a western audience, Julia Davies, creator of Russian Media Monitor, said: ‘Russian TV keeps threatening nuclear strikes against Western nations, desperately trying to deter them from continuing to help Ukraine.

‘On a side note, this is the first state TV host who doesn’t seem to be eager to die for the Motherland, arguing with a trigger-happy lawmaker.’

‘And this must be taken into account, without a doubt.’

He claimed Finland is being provoked into joining NATO by the US and Britain.

‘The Finns have nothing to share with us. They receive more than 90 per cent gas, timber and much more from us.

‘Who needs fighting first of all? The Finns? They are not afraid that Russia is attacking them. ‘Of course, sooner or later the Americans will force them to do so.

‘Just as they forced Ukraine to do it, they are trying to force Poland and Romania. And, as practice shows, they succeed.

‘It is impossible to say that Finland will join NATO and behave towards us as before – this will not happen. The Americans will incite them to provocations.

‘We endure for a long time. But this cannot go on forever.’

Reflecting a view among hardliners around Vladimir Putin he said: ‘The United States will do everything possible to make World War III happen.

‘Just not on their territory.

‘They will try not to lead to nuclear strikes, but they will try to draw the whole of Europe into a conflict with Russia, inflame the situation in Asia, [and] set fire to as many countries as possible .

‘For them this will be a very good way out of the internal economic crisis.

‘They will be able to attribute all their problems to the war, as they already did in the First World War and the Second World War.

‘They got out of their crisis only thanks to the war in Europe. But there is a big danger: who guarantees that nuclear missiles will not fly? I do not guarantee this.’

Asked by Ura news outlet if Russia could strike first with nuclear weapons, he replied: ‘Certainly.’

Asked under what conditions, he replied this would happen if the existence of Russia was threatened.

Finland and Sweden were now ‘joining an Alliance that wants to destroy Russia. Therefore, we want to destroy them in response.’

Asked about Baltic countries Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, he said Russia would crush them when necessary.

‘We are definitely not afraid of these peanuts,’ he said.

‘They are as nasty as stink bugs. But they will need to be crushed when necessary. Now the bug is small and smelly.Turkey has not shut the door to Sweden and Finland for NATO

‘They would have put forward territorial claims against us, as Estonia wanted to do. Well, try it. They follow exactly the same path as Ukraine. Let’s see where it takes them.’

He claimed that St Petersburg – Putin’s birthplace – could be NATO’s first target in a war with Russia.

‘This is the main goal [in this direction]. This is beyond any doubt,’ he said.

‘The question is different. Today we are conducting a special operation, saving every life of the civilian population, and the Ukrainian Nazis, on the contrary, because these are not their people, and for them the more victims, the better. 

‘If the Finns want to destroy a certain part of our population, if they strike at St. Petersburg, this threatens to destroy all of Finland as a state. Well, how else? ‘How can a normal person perceive this: you have destroyed a little bit – we have a little bit? No, it won’t.’Italian paratroopers parachute after jumping from C-130 aircraft in today's NATO drills+28View gallery

Russia’s new ‘big beast’ hypersonic Sarmat is a 208-ton 15,880mph intercontinental ballistic missile.

Putin has said the weapon is ‘unstoppable’ by the West with ‘no analogues…in the world for a long time to come’.

It is due to be deployed this year.

Recently warmonger TV anchor Dmitry Kiselyov, 68, told his Russian TV audience that Britain should be flooded twice with Putin’s most advanced nuclear weapons.

He proposed use of Satan-2 to wipe England from the map.

Next, Russia should ‘plunge Britain into the depths of the sea’ with its ‘underwater robotic drone Poseidon’ causing a 1,640ft tsunami.

Russian ex-president Dmitry Medvedev warned this week of the risk of nuclear war.

The Kinzhal hypersonic missile has been deployed with conventional warheads in the Ukraine war – but is also nuclear capable.

It is unclear if the moves presage a more serious diplomatic rift with London.

The move coincided with the UK sanctioning Vladimir Putin’s supposed lover Alina Kabaeva, 39, an Olympic gold-medal winning gymnast and pro-Kremlin media company executive.

Moscow blames Britain for acting as a Western coordinator and cheerleader of the tough NATO response to Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

In a statement, the Russian foreign ministry said: ‘Taking into account the extremely unfriendly course of the UK towards our country, in order to avoid financial losses and other possible problems, we recommend that Russian citizens refrain, if possible, from traveling to the UK and trying to obtain British visas.

‘Until the situation is normalised, we will act in the same way with respect to the British.’

The statement said: ‘Recently, the Russian Foreign Ministry has received numerous complaints from Russian citizens that it has become virtually impossible or extremely difficult for them to obtain a visa to the UK.

‘In this regard, the issue of the current unacceptable situation was raised with the British embassy in Moscow, and they demanded clear explanations regarding the essence of the problem.

‘According to the explanations of the British, at present the UK Visa Service allegedly gives priority to the processing of visa applications for Ukrainian refugees.

‘For this reason, consideration of applications for British visas of Russians is significantly delayed.’

The ministry complained that ‘the situation is aggravated by the aspect associated with the mandatory prepayment of the consular fee by bank transfer after filling out the electronic questionnaire.

‘Given the anti-Russian sanctions imposed by London, it will not be possible to pay with Visa or Mastercard cards of the Russian issuing bank, since this must be done on the British website.

‘They directly pointed out to the British that this approach of London to ordinary citizens of our country contradicts all previously reached Russian-British agreements on consular issues.A rocket is fired from a truck-mounted Ukrainian missile launcher on a farm in Svyatohirsk, eastern Ukraine today+28View gallery

‘They also declared the absolute unacceptability of such a dismissive attitude towards the Russians.

‘The corresponding actions of British officials can only be described as a politicised infringement of the rights of Russian citizens.’

The news comes as Russia’s attempt to pivot its invasion to southern and eastern Ukraine continues to fail.

Putin’s forces initially hoped to take Kyiv and decapitate Ukraine’s leadership in an all-out war, but faltered amid rugged resistance and a spate of military failings.

Russian tanks were pictured yesterday sunk in the Donbas river after failing twice to cross the strategic point.Russia reportedly lost an entire battalion under Ukrainian rocket fire as troops tried to cross the eastern Donbas river

Russia lost a whole battalion trying to cross the river on May 8 after Ukraine discovered plans – and made a second attempt on Thursday.

The army has lost more than 70 vehicles and seen two infantry battalions mangled in four days of attempts to bridge the river, according to Ukrainian investigative site InformNapalm.

Why are Sweden and Finland not already in NATO? 

Both Finland and Sweden have been militarily non-aligned since WWII.

Sweden maintained its policy of neutrality – which had begun in the early 19th century – throughout the war wanting to avoid being drawn into a conflict that was engulfing the nearby powers of Germany and the Soviet Union.

Instead, Sweden profited from its neutrality by exporting iron ore to the Nazis and sharing military intelligence with the Allies and training their refugee soldiers. 

Meanwhile Finland changed sides in the conflict, first being invaded by Joseph Stalin and assisting the Nazis, before fighting against Hitler’s troops.

When NATO was formed in 1949 for a Western military alliance, Sweden decided not to join and continue its neutrality, introducing a security policy that secured its non-alignment in peace and neutrality in war. 

In 1994, Stockholm decided to join the NATO programme Partnership for Peace (PfP), aimed to build trust between member states and other European countries, but until now it has not signalled a desire to fully join the alliance.

Finland is also a PfP member but has similarly stated its desire to remain neutral since the war.

The EU member state was part of the Russian Empire and won independence during the 1917 Russian revolution but it nearly lost it fighting the Soviet Union in World War Two. 

Having been invaded by Russia in 1939 and sharing a long border with the superpower, Finland wanted to stay out of future conflicts, giving it the freedom to maintain a strong relationship with Moscow and the West while enjoying a free market economy. 

It is just the latest humiliation for Putin’s army – once ranked second in the world – after commanders failed to capture the capital Kyiv, were beaten back from Mykolaiv by a rag-tag band of territorial defence troops and civilians, and got their Black Sea flagship Moskva sunk by Ukrainian missiles.

Commanders are now trying to seize control of the Donbas region – cynically claiming that was their true objective all along – but have so-far failed to make any significant breakthrough in almost a month of fighting, with Kyiv claiming Russia has suffered ‘colossal’ losses.

Russian military experts linked to the feared paramilitary Wagner Group of mercenaries blasted the ‘military genius’ of the leaders who bunched up the battalions so close together, making them sitting ducks for Ukraine.

Sweden and its closest military partner, Finland, have until now remained outside NATO, which was founded in 1949 to counter the Soviet Union in the Cold War. 

The two countries are wary of antagonising their large neighbour but their security concerns have increased since Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24.

Stockholm is widely expected to follow Helsinki’s lead and could apply for entry to the 30-nation military alliance as early as Monday.

Kalin said the militant Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) – designated a terrorist organisation by Turkey, the United States and the European Union – was fund-raising and recruiting in Europe and its presence is ‘strong and open and acknowledged’ in Sweden in particular.

‘What needs to be done is clear: they have to stop allowing PKK outlets, activities, organisations, individuals and other types of presence to…exist in those countries,’ Kalin said.

‘NATO membership is always a process. We will see how things go. But this is the first point that we want to bring to the attention of all the allies as well as to Swedish authorities,’ he added. ‘Of course we want to have a discussion, a negotiation with Swedish counterparts.’

Turkey, the second-largest military in NATO, has officially supported enlargement since it joined the U.S.-led alliance 70 years ago.

For years it has criticised Sweden and other European countries for their handling of organisations deemed terrorists by Turkey, including the followers of U.S.-based Islamic cleric Fethullah Gulen.

Article 5 of NATO’s founding treaty says an attack on any NATO country should be seen as an attack on all. While Sweden and Finland have long had close relations with NATO, they are not covered by its security guarantee.

Turkey has criticised Russia’s invasion, helped arm Ukraine – which is not in NATO – and tried to facilitate talks between the sides but opposes sanctions on Moscow. It wants NATO ‘to address the concerns of all members, not just some,’ Kalin said.

Asked whether Turkey risked being too transactional at a time of war, and when Finnish and Swedish public opinion favours NATO membership, he said: ‘One hundred percent of our population is very upset with the PKK and FETO (Gulenist) presence in Europe.’

‘If they (Finland and Sweden) have a public concerned about their own national security, we have a public that is equally concerned about our own security,’ he said. ‘We have to see this from a mutual point of view.’

When Russia last tried to seize Finland… and failed 

More than 80 years ago, the small Finland took on the might of the Soviet Union when dictator Joseph Stalin ordered an invasion after its government refused to give up substantial territory.

The Winter War of 1939-1940 – which began less than three months after the start of the Second World War – saw Finland’s forces use innovative tactics to defy Russia’s hopes for a quick, emphatic victory that could have landed Stalin control of the whole country.

Instead, Soviet troops – who numbered around one million – were fiercely resisted for nearly three months, with dramatic photos showing how vehicles and equipment had to be abandoned in the face of the opposition and freezing conditions.

In that time, Russia suffered more than 300,000 casualties – including 126,900 deaths – and lost up to 3,500 tanks and around 500 aircraft.

By comparison, Finland lost 25,900 men out of an original force of around 300,000.

Stories of Finnish heroics include that of a Finnish farmer who became the deadliest sniper in history after killing 505 Soviet troops.

In the fighting, Finland also pioneered the use of the improvised grenade the Molotov cocktail, which was named after the Soviet Union’s foreign minister.

Ultimately however, the sheer numerical superiority of the Soviet Union’s forces took its toll and Finland’s government was eventually forced to sign a peace agreement that forced them to give up around ten per cent of their territory.

Despite the defeat, Finland emerged with its sovereignty intact and its international reputation enhanced, whilst the Soviet Union was kicked out of the League of Nations and was condemned by other world leaders for the illegal invasion.

Finnish sniper Simo Häyhä emerged a hero after racking up the most sniper kills in the history of warfare.

Aged 33 when the war broke out, Häyhä quickly acquired a fearsome reputation, striking the enemy unseen and unheard from hidden positions up to 300 yards from his target.

Nicknamed The White Death, Häyhä was a prime target for the Soviets, who targeted him with mortars and heavy artillery to halt his killing spree, which once claimed 25 men in one day.

Finland then allied with Nazi Germany against the Soviets in what was known as the Continuation War in 1941, with Helsinki trying to retake its lost territories.

After a ceasefire was agreed in the Moscow Armistice in 1944, Finland was ordered to expel Nazi troops stationed in the country, prompting the Lapland War with Germany.

At the Paris Peace Treaty, Finland was classified as an ally with Nazi Germany and ordered to pay reparations.

The country then pursued a policy of neutrality, maintaining a free market economy and democracy despite enjoying a strong relationship with the Soviet Union.

Racially Motivated?: A Disturbed Gunman Allegedly Carries Out A Racially Motivated Mass Shooting Incident.(Warning!! Graphic Images And Violence.)

Disclaimer

We have no affiliation or association with World Star they are merely the source of this information.

But how can it be a racially motivated shooting when the first victim was a white woman? Let me be clear I don’t condone any acts of violence but this seems to be following a consistent pattern where these kinds of incidents happen right around election time.

Or at the very least around the time elections are quickly approaching. As a way to incite racial hatred, violence, and tension, and to influence elections. This is a very sad and tragic event and I pray for the victims and their families. I’m not necessarily saying that this incident was staged but the fact that it happened right around the time the mid-terms are approaching raises eyebrows.

I also find the fact that they label it racially motivated, suspicious when his first victim appears to be a white woman. And not discounting the fact that some reports are now suggesting that more than one white person was killed.

And when you consider the alleged shooter allegedly talked extensively with a black man for hours before the shooting and didn’t harm him. This even makes you question if the alleged manifesto is authentic when you consider the inconsistencies in the story. I will be adding additional posts as more information comes in disputing or confirming the reason behind the shooting.

I’m praying for you Elon.

Elon Musk has said Twitter ‘obviously has a strong left wing bias’ as he hit back at a liberal reporter calling for violence against anti-abortion groups.

Caroline Reilly, a reporter for Rewire News Group, had shared a New York Times story about the burning and attempted bombing of a Wisconsin pro-life group’s office.

‘More of this,’ she wrote in a now-deleted tweet. ‘May these people never know a moment of peace or safety until they rot in the ground.’

Reilly was slammed by conservatives on the site in the immediate aftermath, and Mike Cernovich – a conspiracy theorist known for his propagation of the baseless Pizzagate theory that high ranking Democrats were running a pedophilic sex-trafficking ring out of a D.C. pizza shop – made sure Musk knew about the tweet.

He tagged the Tesla CEO in a tweet accusing the platform of allowing verified accounts to incite violence in the name of liberal causes on Sunday evening.

‘Here you go @elonmusk, when Twitter employees invariably lie to you about enforcement policy, maybe they can explain why a verified account is allowed to incite terrorism without any care in the world about being banned.’  

Musk later replied to Cernovich, writing: ‘Twitter obv has a strong left wing bias.’ 

He later clarified that he believed that speech on Twitter should be governed by the laws of the country in which it is being used.

The reporter turned abortion rights activist who erased her online presence after Musk tweet… who is Caroline Reilly 

Caroline Reilly is an award-winning reporter currently working as a reporting fellow for Rewire News Group.

She holds a JD from Boston College Law school, and spent a semester practicing law at the ACLU of Massachusetts.

She also interned with the Victim Rights Law Center and If/When/How. 

Among the articles that Reilly has written are several related to reproductive health including birth control, endometriosis, and ‘medical misogyny and the disbelief of female pain,’ according to the news group’s website.

She also writes about culture, men’s fashion, sex and dating. 

A scholarly she wrote about minors’ access to abortion has previously earned national recognition.

Reilly has now deleted her online presence, following backlash for a tweet calling for violence against anti-abortion groups. 

Reilly is described as a reporting fellow at Rewire News Group, who has written about issues related to reproductive health including birth control, endometriosis, and ‘medical misogyny and the disbelief of female pain,’ according to the news group’s website.

Her tweet on Sunday seemed to have cheered on the attack on the headquarters of Wisconsin Family Action, which was found to be on fire early Sunday morning, with vandals spray painting a message outside reading: ‘If abortions aren’t safe, then you aren’t either.’  

 It immediately sparked outrage among conservatives who accused her of calling for violence against anti-abortion activists after she shared the story of the attack at the Wisconsin Family Action headquarters and called for ‘more of this.’

Republican strategist Matt Whitlock tagged the Twitter Support Team as he replied to Reilly’s tweet, writing:  ‘This feels a bit like calling for violence.’

And Republican Florida congressional candidate Vic DeGrammont used the opportunity to also call out Washington Post reporter Taylor Lorenz, who was criticized last month for trying to out the person behind a popular right-wing Twitter account.

Tweets claimed she had approached the user’s family members, with pictures apparently showing her on the doorstep of Chaya Raichik, who runs the account Libs of Tik Tok. 

‘How would they feel if the public started to Dox reporters that call for violence and arson? What if it came to their doorstep instead?

‘People with a voice need responsibility when using it.’

Rewire News Group later said in a statement to FOX News: ‘A recent post on the personal social media account of one of our reporters does not reflect our values, and has been removed.

‘Rewire News Group does not condone violence, including vandalism or threats. That includes threats to our staff.’

Reilly later deleted her account, made her website private and took down her Instagram page.

Meanwhile, authorities confirmed on Monday that two Molotov cocktails were used to firebomb the offices of the anti-abortion group, with one failing to ignite.

Nobody was injured in the attack, but Madison Police Chief Shon Barnes said at a news conference on Monday that if someone had been in the office at the time, ‘it could have gone differently.’

Democratic Gov. Tony Evers, who is facing re-election in November, later decried the attack saying:  ‘It was a horrible, horrible incident.

He added  that whoever is responsible ‘should be arrested and put on trial. This is unacceptable.’

‘Violence does not solve the issues we´re facing as a country,’ Evers said.

No suspects have been arrested for the arson yet, and officials from the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are assisting with the investigation.

Barnes also encouraged anyone who may have seen anything to contact police, and area businesses were being contacted to see if they have any evidence or captured anything on surveillance cameras, he said. Reilly's tweet was in support of the burning and attempted bombing of a Wisconsin anti-abortion group's office, which was set on fire on Sunday

But Sunday’s attack on the anti-abortion group’s headquarters was just one of the more violent protests that have sprung up around the country since Politico first released a Supreme Court draft decision last week showing it would overturn the landmark Roe v Wade decision – which gave women a Constitutional right to an abortion.

In Washington DC, security officials have had to install large fencing around the Supreme Court following days of protests from both anti-abortion and pro-abortion activists.

A group called ‘Ruth Sent Us’ then doxxed the Washington, D.C.-area addresses of the six conservative Supreme Court Justices and organized ‘walk-bys’ of their residences this week to protest the impending opinion that will overturn Roe v. Wade.

And on Saturday, dozens of demonstrators gathered in the rain in DC to march towards the homes of conservative Justices Roberts and Brett Kavanaugh, where they chalked images of coat hangers in an apparent attempt to reinforce the pro-choice argument that overturning Roe v. Wade will not put an end to abortion, but instead will end safe abortions.

‘Keep abortion safe and legal,’ the pro-abortion protesters chanted while they stood in the streets holding candles and signs.

Others shouted: ‘Your life is a lie!’ and ‘We will not go back!’

Cops stood guard outside the justices’ homes and, after what appeared to be a clash with demonstrators, ordered the activists to leave. At least one officer threatened to arrest and charge the protesters for violating Maryland law.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has now decried these increasingly violent protests, saying that President Joe Biden condemns the demonstrators who descended on the Supreme Court justice’s homes.

‘[President Joe Biden] strongly believes in the Constitutional right to protest,’ the outgoing White House press secretary tweeted on Monday after warning materialized of violent protests.

‘But that should never include violence, threats, or vandalism,’ Psaki continued in her tweet. ‘Judges perform an incredibly important function in our society, and they must be able to do their jobs without concern for their personal safety.’

Historian WILFRED MCCLAY: ‘The Radical Lefts Tyrannical Impulse Is The Greatest Modern Threat To Freedom’.

Control, Coerce and Censor: From mobs targeting Supreme Court justices to President Biden’s Disinformation Board, the American left’s tyrannical impulse is the greatest modern threat to freedom, writes historian WILFRED MCCLAY

I don’t agree with all of Mr. Mcclay’s views like for instance his assertion at the end of the article that liberalism means allowing everyone to be who they want to be. Unfortunately, that’s just like saying we should allow everyone to do what they want to do. And unfortunately, that’s the quickest way to undermine and destroy lives and societies.

We are living through a teachable moment. The lessons on offer are familiar ones, but in urgent need of review.

The first lesson is from Ronald Reagan, the guy whom all the smart people have dismissed as passé, who taught us repeatedly, and never more memorably than when he told us that ‘Freedom is never more than one generation from extinction.’

The message is that freedom is fragile, perishable, ever in need of protection. We need to remember the lesson, once again.

The second lesson is that the principal effort to shut down American freedom today is coming from the political left in our own country.

Usually, we assume that the extinction threat will come from the outside, from some dark and unblinking enemy, like the Soviet Union or China.

Or that if there is an internal threat, it surely must come from the fever swamps of the fascist right-wing.

But today, we find the threat coming from elements in our society that have long declared their affinity for freedom and have had a creditable record of fighting for it in years past.

The leak of a draft Supreme Court opinion, suggesting that a majority of the justices are on the verge of overturning the most controversial decision in modern history, has unleashed leftist rage and illustrated the movement’s worst anti-democratic impulses.

President Joe Biden and his administration have made it clear that they will not condemn the unprecedented breach of high court’s deliberative process. Instead, they have expressed sympathy with it and are determined to capitalize on it.The leak of a draft Supreme Court opinion, suggesting that a majority of the justices are on the verge of overturning the most controversial decision in modern history, has unleashed leftist rage and illustrated the movement's worst anti-democratic impulses.

Biden, who constantly calls on Americans ‘to prove democracy works,’ couldn’t muster a defense of the judiciary branch.

He ignored the pro-life movement’s 50-year history of dignified and nonviolent protest and tenuously linked the news with his contemporary political opponents, whom he labelled the ‘most extreme political organization’ in recent history.

Pro-choice demonstrators identified and swarmed the homes of sitting justices. At least one Catholic church was vandalized.

The purpose of these protests is less an exercise in free speech than an effort to destroy the independence of judges and institutions that should be protected from politics.

Of course, the men and women who run today’s left all want to convince you otherwise.

When they seek to undermine institutions, shut down free speech or suppress ‘disinformation,’ they do it in the name of democracy.

What we see from the political left today is a rising tide of intimidation, coercion and censorship, epitomized by the Biden administration’s creation of a Disinformation Governance Board, but also by the decision of numerous powerful and politically aligned Big Tech companies, such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, and the like, to disfavor or suppress speakers and viewpoints with which they disagree.

Even the venerable American Civil Liberties Union, which once defended the right of Nazis to march through a Chicago-area neighborhood inhabited by Holocaust survivors, has caved to pressure, and now uses political litmus tests in its selection of cases.When they seek to undermine institutions, shut down free speech or suppress 'disinformation,' they do it in the name of democracy.

And the egregious Southern Poverty Law Center has arrogated to itself the right to brand organizations, as proponents of ‘hate speech,’ and to do so with complete impunity.

Leftists celebrate Banned Books Week without any sense of irony—as if they were not the ones who are banning books today and inhibiting the expression of disapproved opinions!

They pick at the motes in others’ eyes, while failing to note the gigantic beam in their own. Human nature is prone to such perversity.

Any form of righteousness can turn, over time, into something very ugly. That is one lesson of the times, and it is a perennial truth.

But our particular moment is offering us an additional lesson — the difference between liberalism and leftism.

We often confuse the two, and that is a grave error.

What we are seeing before our eyes is a demonstration that if we are to keep and cherish freedom, we must defeat the tyrannical excesses of our out-of-control left.

As a first step, we must recover the true meaning of ‘liberalism.’ 

It has nothing in common with the radical Jacobinism that now seems to have taken over many formerly ‘liberal’ circles.

Nor is it the philosophy upholding the idea of a large and ever-expanding state, directing the economy and culture with a controlling hand.

Instead, liberalism is a philosophy that affirms our freedom and our rights of conscience, one in which these fundamental liberties are taken to be inherent rights, a part of who and what we are.

These liberties are even, as our Declaration of Independence says, unalienable rights—meaning, rights that cannot be taken away, and cannot even be given away. And it is a philosophy that solidly supports the free exchange of ideas, not only as a right of expression but as a necessary tool for the work of self-government.

What we should also understand is that this change is not entirely new. The progressive Left has always had a problem with free speech.

President Woodrow Wilson mounted an extensive propaganda campaign in support of the nation’s involvement in the First World War, and brutally suppressed most criticism of the war effort, through measures that included the jailing and deportation of dissidents.

Ever since the 1960s, the effort to control discourse and dictate acceptable vocabulary, the practice often decried as ‘political correctness,’ has been one of the recurrent concerns of the campus left.

The Left’s urge for control springs from its’ confident belief in its capacity to remake the world in its own image—the image of a utopian world based on complete equality of condition.

Freedom is not the goal. Hence it is not sufficient for government to give individuals the freedom to speak for themselves, as classical liberalism does. Instead, those individuals must be supplied with the correct opinions and made to say the right things.

They can’t be allowed to express opinions that do not support the governing powers. They must, in the chilling but sincere words of French philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau, be ‘forced to be free.’

Until the world is re-created in the Left’s image, nothing can be loved or respected simply for what it is, only for what it could be made to be.

Even at its best—and the left has often been an admirable force for good—it can never accept and love the world as it is.

Here is the core of the new puritanical ideology: the entire human past must be seen as a nightmare, from whose clutches only we few have at last finally awakened.

This is light-years removed from the generous original spirit of liberalism, which accepts people as they are, protects and values their voice in the public square, denies the authority of any party to silence them, and gives them the right to do as they please, within the limits of laws that enable their liberties rather than suppressing them.

The Left consistently reverts to the urge to control and remold. Liberalism, in its original sense, stands against that urge.

We need to affirm the second and reject the first. That is the lesson to be learned, and it is just that clear.

Can we do it? Let’s hope we can.

Our future as free men and women may depend upon it.

BLM Co-Founder Patrisse Cullors Admits She LIED When She Denied Using Group’s $6m LA Property Only For Official Business.

Reports are now surfacing that BLMs profits were around 900 million as opposed to 90 million. And if that is the case where has all the money gone? And what percentage has been used to help the black community?

By ASSOCIATED PRESS and ALEX HAMMER FOR DAILYMAIL

BLM’s controversial co-founder Patrisse Cullors has admitted she lied when she said she had only ever used the group’s $6million LA mansion for official business. 

Cullors, 38, told the Associated Press Monday that she used the opulent seven-bed Studio City compound – purchased in cash by BLM in October 2020 – for her own recreation twice.  

The first instance saw her hold a party to toast Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’s inauguration as president and vice president in January 2021.

Then, in March the same year, she commandeered the luxury property – whose purchase has sparked fury among other racial justice campaigners – for her school-aged son’s birthday party.

Cullors said of her earlier decision to lie: ‘I look back at that and think, that probably wasn’t the best idea.’ 

She previously issued a statement denying that she’d ever lived there or used the property for her personal gain after its purchase was revealed by New York magazine, triggering allegations of racism from BLM. 

The purchase of the 6,500 square-foot Studio City property – which officials previously said was reserved exclusively for official foundation business –  was disclosed last month by NY Mag.

News of the previously under-wraps transaction – made more than a year and a half ago – triggered a firestorm of criticism concerning the financial practices of the foundation’s top brass, which have already come into question in recent months.

Black Lives Matter raised $90million in the wake of George Floyd’s murder, and still has an impressive $60million of cash at hand.  

Explaining the reason behind the luxurious purchase, Cullors told AP: ‘We looked at commercial buildings and we looked at homes and then we found this really amazing space that’s a sweet spot between commercial and residential.’

She went on to justify its purchase by highlighting how the mansion had a soundstage which enabled BLM to  produce podcasts.  Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors, pictured here during an interview with The Associated Press in Los Angeles last week, has admitted she lied when she said she had only ever used the group’s $6million LA mansion for official business.

A charity run by Cullors donated $86K to Turner’s clothing company the year prior, after the foundation garnered nearly $100million in donations in 2020

After receiving the email asking for comment on the house’s existence last month, BLM officials reportedly circulated an internal memo with possible responses to the outlet’s query concerning the alleged purchase.

The responses ranged from: ‘Can we kill the story?’ to: ‘Our angle – needs to be to deflate ownership of the property,’ the magazine reported.  

At the time, Cullors – who attested the property was bought as a ‘safe space’ for black creatives, activists and thought leaders, and that its purchase was never disclosed because it needed renovating – angrily hit back at her detractors, describing criticism she was facing since the purchase was made public as ‘racist and sexist.’

Cullors, meanwhile, defended the purchase while speaking to the AP last week, arguing that the opulent home was bought to bring further value to the BLM empire.

‘We really wanted to make sure that the global network foundation had an asset that wasn’t just financial resources,’ she said, ‘and we understood that not many black-led organizations have property. They don´t own their property.’ 

Cullors says she was paid $120,000 in ‘consulting fees’ by BLM, and claims she wanted to pay to hire the mansion for her son’s birthday 

Speaking to AP, Cullors said she intended to pay a fee to rent the property for her son’s birthday. Cullors is in a relationship with a woman, and her son’s father is musician Damon Turner.  

Black Lives Matter has since confirmed that it had billed her – but it’s unclear how much for, if she was charged the same rate as anyone else, and if she has since settled up the supposed debt.

Records show that Turner’s Los Angeles-based clothing company, Trap Heals, was started just days before partnering with Cullors’ foundation. 

The company received an $86,000 donation later that year from a nonprofit run by Cullors – on of several transactions that have raised eyebrows amid the recent scrutiny of the group’s finances. 

In the interview, Cullors angrily denied claims BLM brass misused funds, roughly three months after the organization ceased online fundraising following a demand by the California attorney general to show where nearly 100 million in donations received in 2020 went.’The idea that (the foundation) received millions of dollars and then I hid those dollars in my bank account is absolutely false,’ Cullors said, calling those claims ‘a false narrative.’


Cullors said she had been paid $120,000 in consulting fees by BLM, which raked in $90 million in donations in the wake of George Floyd’s murder. ‘It’s impacted me personally and professionally, that people would accuse me of stealing from black people.’Questioned by AP about what BLM’s donations have been spent on, Cullors continued: ‘No I have never used BLM donations to pay for any of the properties that I’ve owned in the past or owned right now.’


She admitted hiring both her mom and brother to work at the mansion, but denied doing so was corrupt, and said BLM had just been looking for ‘folks’ with ‘skillsets’ to work at the lavish compound. 
Cullors denies it was corrupt to hire her mom and brother to work at the opulent compound – and says her ultimate ambition is to abolish the police and prisons


The former BLM co-founder went on to deny accusations of cronyism for employing both her mom and brother at the BLM compound. 
Cullors said: ‘My brother is head of security, mom did work at the property – there’s also dozens of other people doing amazing work.


‘It’s not like I literally was like, I’m bringing all my family and friends in. Folks had skillsets. It’s been a really bizarre experience to know the truth and to have false and misinformation be spread about me, especially around my own personal resources that I worked my ass off to attain.’
Cullors claimed much of the criticism of BLM’s work was rooted in ‘white supremacy,’ and laid bare her woke ambition to abolish the police.
She said: ‘I have the wish for (BLM) to truly abolish the police and prison state. 


‘I have the wish for movement leaders and people inside of our movement to be treated with care and dignity and love. I have the wish that black families who’ve been impacted by police violence get everything they deserve.’ 

Cullors, who resigned from the group last May amid reports she spent millions on a slew of lavish homes with donated dollars, conceded she had had made mistakes and poor decisions when it came to the managing foundation funds.

However, she denied feathering her own property portfolio with the tens of millions of dollars that gushed into Black Lives Matter’s accounts in the wake of George Floyd’s May 2020 murder. 

Cullors says BLM struggled to process the tidal wave of cash that flowed into its coffers after George Floyd’s murder – and admits campaign group was hampered by ramshackle infrastructure 

Cullors acknowledged that BLM was ill-prepared to handle a tidal wave of contributions in the aftermath of protests over George Floyd’s death at the hands of Minneapolis police in 2020. She said the foundation was slow to build the necessary groundwork to address the flood of financial contributions.

‘On paper, it looks crazy,’ she said. ‘We use this term in our movement a lot, which is we’re building the plane while flying it. I don’t believe in that anymore.’

She then declared: ‘The only regret I have with BLM is wishing that we could have paused for one to two years, to just not do any work and just focus on the infrastructure.’

Criticism over the foundation’s purchase of the Southern California property and its subsequent secrecy was wide-ranging and fervent last month, even coming from the foundation supporters such as Justin Hansford, the director of the Thurgood Marshall Civil Rights Center at Howard University. 

He said the property purchase could be used as fodder by BLM’s already growing number of detractors, which may lead to possible donors shying away from black-led social justice organizations in the future. Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors denies wrongdoing.

‘That’s the thing that you don’t want to get out of hand,’ the professor and civil activist said after news of the property first surfaced last month.

Cullors went on to angrily and adamantly reject accusations that she had personally benefited in the six years she guided the BLM foundation, including media reports that she had purchased a slew of homes to the tune of more than $4.5million.

Following the flood of donations seen in the latter half of 2020 – making BLM the largest mobilization of a movement in US history – Cullors signed documents with Thousand Currents transferring $66.5million into the foundation’s accounts. 

In February 2021, Black Lives Matter confirmed it took in $90million throughout 2020, distributed to their partner organizations, and had $60million remaining in its accounts.

Earlier this year, DailyMail.com also revealed the group blew $12.7million of those funds on ‘professional fees’, according to the charity revenue and expenses statements that were included in its application for tax-exempt, nonprofit status in August 2020. 

Cullors said she became the foundation’s full-time executive director that year, charged with ensuring it had the organizational infrastructure to handle the massive influx of donations and would use the resources to further its mission. 

However, neither of those reports included records of the $6million property purchase made months earlier. 

As donations and support grew, an array of local BLM chapters transformed into a nonprofit organizations run by Cullors that have also now come under scrutiny.

Cullors personal property empire has come under scrutiny – as have the other nonprofits she’s been linked to   

Last April, Cullors slammed the scrutiny over her $4.5million empire of four homes purchased following BLM’s successful crowdfunding campaign as a ‘racist and sexist’ attack by the ‘right-wing media.’

‘Organizers should get paid for the work that they do. They should get paid a living wage,’ Cullors said at the time, responding to criticism chiding the activist for using donated dollars for personal gain. 

‘The fact that the right-wing media is trying to create hysteria around my spending is, frankly, racist and sexist and I also want to say that many of us that end up investing in homes in the black community often invest in homes to take care of their family,’ she said.

The assertion followed an expose published by the New York Post early last year that revealed Cullors had bought three other homes – two in Los Angeles and a sprawling ranch in Georgia – since 2016 at a total cost of around $3million.

This includes the $415,000 ‘custom ranch’ on 3.2 acres in Conyers, Georgia, which boasts its own pool and airplane hangar.

Additionally, the spending spree saw Cullorssnap up  two Los Angeles homes, including a three-bedroom home in Inglewood for $510,000 and four-bedroom home in South LA for $590,000. 

Then, in April of that year, it emerged Cullors had bought a $1.4million home in the largely white district of Topanga Canyon, Los Angeles – valuing her property empire at roughly $4.6million.

BLM’s Global Network filtered its donations through a group called Thousand Currents – which made it even more complicated to trace the cash. 

Solome Lemma, executive director of Thousand Currents, said at the time of the allegations over misused funds: ‘Donations to BLM are restricted donations to support the activities of BLM.’ 

Since then, the group has been tied to several charities set in place by Cullors, that have subsequently made payments to Cullors and her business partners, according to a report released earlier this year on the organization’s spending. 

Included in the the scrutiny into BLM’s finances was a report that the group transferred $6.3million to Cullor’s spouse, Janaya Khan, and other Canadian activists to purchase a mansion in Toronto in 2021, as well as several other charities whose finances raise ‘red flags’ concerning the foundation’s spending.

The report also showed how Cullors had designated some of the $90million the nonprofit made in 2020 to prison reform charities. 

One of the groups, Reform LA Jails that Cullors founded, had received $1.4million, of which $205,000 went to the consulting firm owned by Cullors and Khan, New York Magazine reported.  

Reform LA Jails then gave $270,000 to Christman Bowers, treasurer of the Black Lives Matter PAC; $211,000 to Asha Bandelle, a friend of Cullors’ who co-wrote her memoir; and another $86,000 to Trap Heals LLC, an entertainment, clothing and consulting company started by Damon Turner, the father of Cullors’ child.

In April 2021, reports began emerging – provided by the National Legal and Policy Center – which showed Cullors had amassed a $3.2million property empire by buying four properties – three in the Los Angeles area and one outside of Atlanta. Cullors bought this house in South Los Angeles - one of four she owns following a slew of real estate purchases the former BLM leader made in 2020 to the tune of more than $4.5million

The revelation saw many within BLM turned against Cullors, questioning where she had accumulated the money. Cullors has written two books, has a deal with YouTube, and signed a production deal with Warner Bros. in 2020 to develop programming ‘for children, young adults and families.’ 

However, amid the furor she stood down and announced that two people were taking over as executive directors – Makani Themba and Monifa Bandele.

Yet Themba and Bandele in September said that they had never taken up the roles, following disagreements with leadership.

‘Although a media advisory was released indicating that we were tapped to play the role of senior co-executives at BLMGN, we were not able to come to an agreement with the acting Leadership Council about our scope of work and authority,’ they said in a statement.

‘As a result, we did not have the opportunity to serve in this capacity.’

Themba and Bandele said they did not know who was now running BLM, as their discussions never progressed.

Two other people remained on the board, after Cullors’ departure – Shalomyah Bowers and Raymond Howard, according to undated documents obtained by The Washington Examiner. 

Cullors acknowledged that a lack of transparency about the foundation´s board and staffing drove perceptions that things were amiss. And when the organization was transparent – revealing that it had raised millions – the reaction wasn’t what she expected.

‘I thought practicing radical transparency with black people would have been received well,’ she said. ‘What was unhelpful about releasing it was not getting enough people allying with us about it. We weren´t the only organization to receive millions of dollars.’

In addition to promoting her latest book, ‘An Abolitionist´s Handbook: 12 Steps to Changing Yourself and the World,’ Cullors is focused on the Crenshaw Dairy Mart. 

It’s a former convenience store in Los Angeles that was converted into an artist collective and gallery, which overlaps with her activism on criminal justice issues. Cullors is also well into a multiyear programming development deal with Warner Bros.

In the year since her resignation, the BLM foundation hasn´t hired new leadership or publicly discussed plans for money still sitting in its coffers.

Two veteran civil rights organizers who were announced last May as interim senior executives for the foundation said they never began serving in that capacity, citing in a statement a failure to reach an agreement with BLM´s leadership council about the scope of their work and decision-making authority.

It was only earlier this month that the foundation announced a new board of directors, which leaders said will grow in the coming months.

And it was only recently that the foundation caught up with its financial filings: In California, where it had been deemed delinquent in submitting required charity disclosures from 2020, the state Registry of Charitable Trusts now shows the foundation is current.

Records show a small number of people with responsibility over the foundation. A 990 filing submitted to the IRS for January through June 2020, lists Cullors as an uncompensated executive director and the foundation’s only employee. 

At that point, still under the fiscal sponsorship of a well-established charity, the BLM foundation reported no revenue, assets, contributions or expenses.

The filing lists just two board members, including Shalomyah Bowers, who is the president at Bowers Consulting, a firm that has provided operational support to the BLM foundation for two years.

In a phone interview, Bowers said the organization had been working since Cullors´ departure to sort out its infrastructure. 

He said the organization underwent an independent financial audit which, along with the expected May release of its latest 990 filing, will show that ‘nothing impermissible or nefarious has happened’ with BLM’s finances.

‘We are now a foundation that is deeply devoted to investing in organizations that are committed to doing the work of abolition (and) committed to building black power,’ he said.

Cullors is far from the only black activist to withstand questions about her money, her motivations and her leadership. Elders in the civil rights struggle often speak of attacks, both from within and outside of the movement, meant to discredit or stop social change.

On Saturday, Candace Owens, the black conservative political pundit and opponent of the BLM movement, arrived uninvited with a camera crew at Cullors’ Los Angeles-area home. 

In an Instagram video shared with millions of followers, Owens said she was there to film a documentary about BLM’s finances and ask questions about the foundation’s property (which is not at the same address as Cullors’ home).

‘The constant harassment, online and offline, that I’ve experienced is unacceptable and dangerous,’ Cullors said.Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors sits in an abolitionist pod, a garden in the form of a geodesic dome, during an interview with The Associated Press in Los Angeles, Wednesday

Still, legitimate questions of accountability should not be dismissed, said Garza, the BLM co-founder who was not involved in the BLM organization after 2015.

‘I think it is important to be transparent about what is actually happening,’ Garza said. ‘And my assessment is that because there was a lack of response (to public questions), specifically from the global network foundation, it allowed for people to fill in the blanks.’

She added: ‘If there is impropriety (in the foundation), we should talk about it. I don´t think we should sweep that under the rug, but we haven´t established that.’

Cullors knows that she gave critics an opening when she issued a statement denying suggestions that she had lived at the Studio City property or taken advantage of it for personal gain. 

She later acknowledged to the AP that, during a four-day stay at the property, she had used the compound for purposes that were not strictly business.

She said in January 2021, while seeking refuge at the property amid threats on her life, she hosted a small party to celebrate the inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. 

The gathering included about 15 people, including BLM Los Angeles chapter members and other prominent movement supporters, she said.

And in March 2021, she held a private birthday party for her son at the property, for which Cullors said she intended to pay a rental fee to the foundation. The foundation confirmed it had billed her, and it said it was reviewing its policies to prevent such uses in the future.

Cullors said, in hindsight, she should not have used the property that way.

She conceded Wednesday to the AP: ‘I look back at that and think, that probably wasn´t the best idea.’
