Jeff Bezos Slammed For Puny Donation to Australia Wildfire Recovery

The world’s richest man has donated less than Metallica.

Globalist oligarch and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos was slammed by many philanthropists on Sunday evening after announcing a comparatively small donation to combat the ongoing wildfire epidemic in Australia.

Bezos, who has held the title of the world’s richest man with a net worth of a whopping $116.7 billion- announced that Amazon was donating a humble sum of $690,000, or one million Australian dollars to wildfire recovery. Australia has been ravaged by an ongoing wildfire epidemic that has devastated more than 26 million acres of land.

Certainly, $690,000 is not an inconsequential sum of money. But someone with the resources of Jeff Bezos could easily have donated millions of not billions more, raising questions as to whether the donation is merely intended as a PR stunt to rehab the oligarch’s image.

Bezos has gone on the record before stating that the “only way” he’d use his record setting personal wealth would be for personal space travel. He spent more than ten times the amount of his Australia donation last year on a vain Super Bowl ad, promoting the fake news Washington Post.

Some pointed out that far less wealthy celebrities and individuals donated far more than Bezos. Thrash metal band Metallica donated $750,000, and Kylie Jenner donated a million dollars.

Bezos even went on to ask for his Instagram followers to donate in his post announcing the meager giveaway, apparently unaware or unwilling to admit that he alone could donate far more than his followers could. Critics of the megabillionaire pointed out the Bezos receives more wealth in a few minutes than he gave for the fires.

It’s clear the donation is little more than an empty stunt. Liberal billionaires such as Bezos are eager to rehabilitate their tattered reputations in an era where they’re facing criticism across the political spectrum, but the general public knows better.

OUT OUT OUT: Study Shows That Each Illegal Alien is Up to a $6,500-Per-Year Burden for the U.S. Taxpayer

The cost of illegal immigration is massive.

Published

on

A ground-breaking new study has shown that illegal immigrants cost the U.S. taxpayer approximately $6,500 per year by soaking up welfare cash and other government benefits after they break the law to enter the country.

The study, commissioned by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), showed that that small states are particularly burdened by the illegals, and the money and services are going to aliens instead of veterans, children, and the disabled.

FAIR surveyed ten small states and determined that illegal immigration cost them an average of $454 million per year.

“To put that figure into context, that $454 million expenditure is more than 200 times what the state of Montana budgets for its entire Veterans Affairs program, and it is 2.5 times the total sum that West Virginia invests in its state university,” the report states.

Dan Stein, president of FAIR, notes that the native populations of these small states are getting squeezed the most by the burden caused by illegal immigrants. These individuals are essentially being replaced as a once-great nation transforms into a globalist economic zone.

“In many ways, the influx of immigrants into less populous areas of the country has an even greater impact on long-time residents than it does in larger and more urban areas,” Stein said.

“These areas have neither the tax base, nor the economic and social infrastructure to accommodate the needs of the growing numbers of immigrants taking up residence,” he added.

The FAIR study, Small Migrant Populations, Huge Impacts, analyzed Alaska, West Virginia, South Dakota, Vermont, Wyoming, New Hampshire, Montana, Mississippi, North Dakota and Maine to discover their startling conclusions regarding the costs of illegal immigration.

“Many local officials tout immigration, including illegal immigration, as a remedy to economic stagnation. However, as this report reveals, the reality is precisely the opposite,” Stein said.

“Illegal immigration, in particular, drives down wages and inhibits job opportunities for legal residents, while bringing more low-skilled, low-wage workers to these states. In turn, this increases costs to state and local governments, and discourages investment by businesses seeking a skilled labor force and lower overhead,” he added.

FAIR released the following video to accompany their newly released study:

“This report highlights the fact that the adverse effects of unchecked mass immigration, combined with an immigration selection process that does not choose people based on individual merit, job skills and education, are now being felt in all parts of the country,” Stein explained.

“Americans, in every part of the nation, are being affected by antiquated and unenforced immigration policies, which is why it is at the top of the list of voter concerns heading into the 2020 elections,” he added.
