Trump Foundation found to lack certification required for charities which solicit money

No.75597 ViewReplyOriginalReport
>Donald Trump’s charitable foundation — which has been sustained for years by donors outside the Trump family — has never obtained the certification that New York requires before charities can solicit money from the public, according to the state attorney general’s office.

>Under the laws in New York, where the Donald J. Trump Foundation is based, any charity that solicits more than $25,000 a year from the public must obtain a special kind of registration beforehand. Charities as large as Trump’s must also submit to a rigorous annual audit that asks — among other things — whether the charity spent any money for the personal benefit of its officers.


>Tax filings show that in each of the past 10 years for which there are records, the Trump Foundation raised more than $25,000 from outsiders. Tax records alone do not reveal whether the donations amounted to solicitations under New York law, but in several cases there is strong evidence that they did.

>For instance, the foundation has received more than $2.3 million from companies that owed money to Trump or one of his businesses — but that were instructed to pay the foundation instead, according to people familiar with those transactions.

>In the most obvious example of a public solicitation, the Trump Foundation set up a website early this year to collect small-dollar donations that it promised to pass along to veterans. In all, the website said, the Trump Foundation took in $1.67 million through that site.

‘Socialism for the rich’: the evils of bad economics

No.408509 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
>The economic arguments adopted by Britain and the US in the 1980s led to vastly increased inequality – and gave the false impression that this outcome was not only inevitable, but good.

In most rich countries, inequality is rising, and has been rising for some time. Many people believe this is a problem, but, equally, many think there’s not much we can do about it. After all, the argument goes, globalisation and new technology have created an economy in which those with highly valued skills or talents can earn huge rewards. Inequality inevitably rises. Attempting to reduce inequality via redistributive taxation is likely to fail because the global elite can easily hide their money in tax havens. Insofar as increased taxation does hit the rich, it will deter wealth creation, so we all end up poorer.

One strange thing about these arguments, whatever their merits, is how they stand in stark contrast to the economic orthodoxy that existed from roughly 1945 until 1980, which held that rising inequality was not inevitable, and that various government policies could reduce it. What’s more, these policies appear to have been successful. Inequality fell in most countries from the 1940s to the 1970s. The inequality we see today is largely due to changes since 1980.

In both the US and the UK, from 1980 to 2016, the share of total income going to the top 1% has more than doubled. After allowing for inflation, the earnings of the bottom 90% in the US and UK have barely risen at all over the past 25 years. More generally, 50 years ago, a US CEO earned on average about 20 times as much as the typical worker. Today, the CEO earns 354 times as much.

Irish Village Claims Fumes from Nearby Viagra Factory Are Giving Men and Dogs Hard-Ons

No.205094 ViewReplyOriginalReport
UK pharmacies will be selling Viagra over the counter as of spring 2018, but the men of Ringaskiddy in Ireland’s Cork County don’t need to pay for the erectile dysfunction drug. In fact, they don’t even have to pop the little blue pill: the fumes from a nearby Viagra manufacturing plant reportedly have an arousing effect on the male population. The villagers claim that even their dogs roam about in a state of arousal. Basically, it’s a case of “love is in the air,” but it may not be all fun and games.

Viagra is a cash cow for US-based pharma giant Pfizer, which has had this particular factory going for about two decades. According to a company statement, the stories are just an “amusing” myth. “Our manufacturing processes have always been highly sophisticated as well as highly regulated,” Pfizer said. Still, the stories have been circulating for years, and there are too many accounts to just brush aside the issue.

Interest in Ringaskiddy and its amorous air was rekindled after the announcement that Viagra will soon be available without a prescription. Rumors that the factory fumes are making men and dogs frisky have been around for years. With the spotlight turning to Pfizer’s facility, it was only natural that reporters would resurrect the story of the special air quality in Ringaskiddy. Here’s what some of the villagers had to say.

“We’ve been getting the love fumes for years now for free. It’s amazing the number of people who come to this village, perhaps out of curiosity, and then never leave. They settle down here. As they say, there’s something in the air — not that we need it, of course. But for some fellas with problems in that department it can be a blessing,” according to local Sadie O’Grady, whose daughter Debbie O’Grady jokingly added, “One whiff and you’re stiff.”

I’m asukaspammer, a /qa/ anon, and in the spirit of Christmas figured I’d let you know that I spammed the news.news links. Just wanted to see who was going to be blamed and why, it’s a lot more honest that way.
Before anyone starts talking about a grand anime spam conspiracy, I have only every posted that news.news spam on this board.
Anyways figured I’d let the board know seeing as there are a few threads on /qa/ about it. Still not sure if it’s just a couple of guys trying to start more drama or actual posters in those threads but that’s neither here nor there. Merry Christmas! Oh and I guess here are the “article” links
