IRS Must Look Into Tax Breaks Zuckerberg Received For 2020 Election Meddling, Complaint Says

By: Shawn Fleetwood, The Federalist, September 22, 2022:

The Internal Revenue Service should investigate whether Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, his wife, Priscilla Chan, and a host of left-wing nonprofits violated existing tax laws by intentionally pouring financial resources into the 2020 election to benefit then-candidate Joe Biden, a complaint from a conservative think tank says.

The Center for Renewing America alleges that the Center for Tech and Civic Life, the Center for Election Innovation and Research, and the National Vote at Home Institute were engaged in a “partisan electioneering” scheme led by Barack Obama’s former campaign manager David Plouffe by pumping nearly half a billion dollars into the 2020 election to swing the contest to Biden.

Zuckerberg and Chan claimed the money they gave to progressive groups was to help run the 2020 elections, but analysis from election data experts has determined that the funds were “distributed on a highly partisan basis that favored Democrats.”

As reported by William Doyle, the left-wing groups’ efforts “had nothing to do with traditional campaign finance,” but everything to do “with financing the infiltration of election offices at the city and county level by left-wing activists, and using those offices as a platform to implement preferred administrative practices, voting methods, and data-sharing agreements, as well as to launch intensive outreach campaigns in areas heavy with Democratic voters.”

The “Zuckbucks” grants, which were largely directed toward heavily Democratic localities in swing states, were essentially utilized to help fund a partisan get-out-the-vote operation.

The IRS should immediately investigate the entities “for unlawful political activity and the receipt and use of improper personal income tax deductions for donations to one or more of those entities,” one of the complaints reads. The complaint also says the left-wing, Democrat-staffed groups should lose their charitable tax status immediately. “These entities’ charitable tax status should be immediately revoked for making expenditures for partisan campaign intervention, in direct and deliberate violation” of federal rules, it adds.

Air Force Academy Diversity Training Tells Cadets: “Don’t Say Terrorist,” “Include All Genders​”‘ Drop ‘Mom and Dad’

Geller Report - Thu, 09/22/2022 - 20:00

When our military is forced by a Democratic administration to concern itself with the most atrocious woke nonsense, something which the Chinese and Russian military don’t even acknowledge as being relevant to their mission, it is a sure sign that when the next great conflict comes America will not emerge as the victor.

Defeat, once thought impossible, can now be foreseen. Disgrace is one thing but treachery is something else. Read on:

Don’t Say Terrorist: Air Force Academy Teaches Cadets ‘Inclusive Language’

The United States Air Force Academy (USAFA) is training its cadets to “use inclusive language” that bars them from calling people “terrorists” or using male and female identifiers, according to an official presentation being used by the elite military school and obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

The presentation, titled, “Diversity & Inclusion: What It Is, Why We Care, & What We Can Do,” takes cadets through a series of exercises meant to eradicate their use of gender pronouns and reinforce the need for inclusive language that avoids “stereotypes, bias, and microaggressions.” One portion of the presentation tells cadets to avoid language such as “you guys,” “terrorists,” and “colorblind.”

Air Force Academy diversity training tells cadets to use words that ‘include all genders​,’ drop ‘mom and dad’

Air Force Academy also tells cadets to be ‘Color Conscious’ instead of ‘Colorblind’

By Jessica Chasmar | Fox News

EXCLUSIVE: A diversity and inclusion training by the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado instructs cadets to use words that “include all genders” and to refrain from saying things like “mom” and “dad.”

The slide presentation titled, “Diversity & Inclusion: What it is, why we care, & what we can do,” obtained by Fox News Digital, advises cadets to use “person-centered” and gender-neutral language when describing individuals.

“Some families are headed by single parents, grandparents, foster parents, two moms, two dads, etc.: consider ‘parent or caregiver’ instead of ‘mom and dad,'” the presentation states. “Use words that include all genders​: ‘Folks’ or ‘Y’all’ instead of ‘guys’; ‘partner’ vs. ‘boyfriend or girlfriend.’”

“Not ‘Colorblind’ or ‘I don’t see color,’ but Color Conscious,” it adds. “We see Color/Patterns AND VALUE people for their uniqueness.”

Rep. Mike Waltz, R-Fla., a Green Beret and Afghan War veteran, pointed out during an interview with Fox News Digital that “it’s been a tradition in the military to get letters from mom and dad or your boyfriend and girlfriend for as long as there’s been a military.”

“Now we’re instructing every cadet entering the Air Force to not say ‘mom’ and ‘dad,’ to not say ‘boyfriend’ or ‘girlfriend,’ and this kind of drive towards gender neutrality,” he said. “I think the Air Force should be worried about the macro aggressions against America that are happening all over the world.”

The diversity and inclusion (D&I) training also includes an exercise asking cadets to separate into small groups and write down as many “G-Animals,” or animals that start with the letter “G,” that they can think of in one minute’s time.

“What does this activity show us about the power of combining our diverse perspectives?​” the activity asks. “If this were an operational USAF/USSF [United States Space Force] challenge (think COA [course of action] development) what risks might be present if we did not fully leverage the diversity of our group?”
One slide in the presentation claims that D&I training is critical for “developing warfighters” to be “prepared to lead the USAF/USSF with character.”

“How can we Lift Others (motivate our teams) if we don’t know our people?” it asks. “How can we Elevate Performance if we don’t include people during planning and execution?​”

“Today we are preparing to face challenges that may not exist today,” the training says. “For example, Information Warfare only became a career field 7 years ago, and we stood up the Space Force in 2019. This makes our need to innovate critical. Thus, our leaders have deemed D&I a warfighting imperative.”
