In today’s rapidly moving media environment, months almost feel like years.
Brent Bozell, the Founder and President of the Media Research Center, reminded his Twitter followers on July 17, 2020 that Bank of America donated $1 billion to leftist causes which include Black Lives Matter.
He tweeted, “Bank of America has pledged to give Marxist Black Lives Matter ONE BILLION DOLLARS. Every conservative customer MUST CLOSE THEIR ACCOUNTS.”

On June 2, 2020, Bank of America promised to donate $1 billion over the course of four years to help businesses recover from the Wuhan virus related lockdowns. In an article for The Hill, Alexandra Kelley noted that this donation had “an emphasis on those owned and operated by people of color.”
In a press release, the bank claimed that the funding will be directed towards economic mobility and development programs. Kelley explained that Bank of America’s focus will be on “health, job training, reskilling (teach someone how to do a new job) and upskilling (teaching someone new skills to help them in their current job), small business support and housing aid.”
“Underlying economic and social disparities that exist have accelerated and intensified during the global pandemic,” declared Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan in the press release. “The events of the past week have created a sense of true urgency that has arisen across our nation, particularly in view of the racial injustices we have seen in the communities where we work and live. We all need to do more.”
While the money BOA is donating may go to some legitimate causes, leftist non-profits have a track record of promoting graft and cronyism. Additionally, most of the organizations jumping on the outrage following the death of George Floyd have ulterior motives that go beyond their fluffy promises.
By donating money to these causes, corporate America is complicit in bankrolling cultural radicalism.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
