EXCLUSIVE: Krassenstein Brothers’ Site Donates Revenue to ‘Charities,’ Won’t Disclose Beneficiaries

Inside the world of the Krassenstein’s financials.

Published

on

Monday morning, I had a bizarre conversation with Ed Krassenstein, who confirmed that the website founded by he, his brother Brian, and former Business Insider employee James Kosur does not pay out revenue to the three co-founders, but rather donates it to “charities.”

“Hill Reporter makes money,” Krassenstein said. “We’ve just reinvested or donated every dollar thus far.”

That seems like a noble endeavor, but Krassenstein refused to confirm which “charities” have been the beneficiaries of the website’s altruism. He said he’d have to contact Kosur before releasing the information. The conversation ended mid-morning on Monday, and Krassenstein has still not returned with a response.

“I finance Hill Reporter,” Krassenstein said. “Along with James Kosur and Brian Krassenstein. Right now we don’t get a paycheck for anything we do on Twitter or Hill Reporter.”

That admission raised another interesting question: How exactly do the Krassensteins make money?

“We’ve sold the vast majority of our businesses over the past 5 years and are living off of interest right now,” he said.

He told me it was “none of [my] business,” when I asked which businesses he had sold, but later provided further information.

“I’ve run dozens of websites over the past 20 years, and have sold several of them for large sums of money,” he said.

When asked which websites specifically, he pointed to one – 3dprint.com. The rest of the “dozens of websites” which the Krassensteins have apparently sold and from which they have accrued wealth are apparently confidential, “because they were private businesses sold to a private party,” according to Krassenstein.

A few months ago, a video clip was released online showing Brian Krassenstein claiming that the brothers were paid to Tweet. That clip, purportedly a promotion for the “KrassenCast,” the brothers’ new cringeworthy podcast show, was edited down, and did not show Brian saying that he was “just kidding” about being paid to Tweet. Ed, who filmed the clip, said Monday that it was leaked accidentally, but that he did not know how. He said he had emailed it, and posted it in a Slack channel, both of which could have plausibly been hacked. Either way, it caused a media storm. Several right-wing news websites reported that Brian had admitted to being paid to Tweet.

Big League Politics specifically asked Brian about the context of the video before we published a story on it. At the time, Brian refused to clarify the context. He ignored our question completely. Instead, he received a good deal of press from left-wing rags, bashing right wing media for what he deemed to be irresponsible reporting.

When asked why Brian refused to clarify the context of the video at the time, which would have quashed the false rumor that they were paid to Tweet before it was spread throughout the media, Ed said that it was “because we were trying to figure out how it was leaked at the time,” and that at the time they “were bombarded with questions.”

The brothers rose to prominence by responding to nearly every Tweet by President Donald J. Trump, which they still do. They have significant Twitter followings.

A Researcher at Brown University Claims that Trump Signs and American Flags Frighten Black People

America’s “Finest” Institutions Down the Insane Path of Wokeness

Published

on

Carycruz Bueno, a postdoctoral researcher at Brown University, tweeted about how Black Airbnb guests may actually receive trauma from looking at Trump signs.

A few weeks ago Bueno tweeted that the online vacation rental company “doesn’t understand the trauma” that Trump signs allegedly cause for Black people.

As Ben Zeisloft of Campus Reform noted, “Airbnb rentals are privately owned properties listed for short-term and long-term rental on Airbnb. Airbnb, unlike hotels, does not own the properties. It is the platform that connects private owners with renters and facilitates payments.”

Bueno claimed that when she and her husband arrived at a property they rented in Maine they saw “Trump signs and other white nationalist symbols” in the yard. Bueno recalled that she was “immediately scared” for her life and her family’s safety.

According to Bueno’s account of the situation, Airbnb said they could do nothing to address the situation. The Brown University researcher said that this a “prime example [of] how White companies make a BLM statement,”and then proceed to “do nothing” when a Black person declares that she doesn’t “feel safe.”

Bueno is of the opinion that Airbnb is “only words no action,” and should “do better” to accommodate the grievances of so-called persecuted groups.

She also advocated for the establishment of a “greenbook version of AirBnB” in order for BIPOC (black indigenous people of color) not have “to pay to feel uncomfortable and scared.”

Bueno even went as far as to say that the American flag could serve as a symbol “used in many places to scare Black people,” on top of KKK and Confederate symbols.

Several conservative students on campus were not happy with Bueno’s remarks.

Brown University Students for Trump President Emma Rae Phillips said to Campus Reform that she is “disappointed by Bueno’s comments.”

Phillips is an economics major and observed that Bueno’s “tweets do not seem to show much understanding of how free markets work” given how people who use Airbnb can patronize other services instead.

Additionally, she noted that “American flags and Trump signs are not racist in any way, shape, or form.”

With how radically indoctrinated many students have become, you can only expect the most outlandish of behavior coming from these students. Late stage political correctness if you will.

Conservatives may have to social distance themselves from these institutions of higher learning. They’re more like indoctrination centers at this point.
