Lebron’s $2 Million ‘Investment’ in a School Will Cost Taxpayers $80,000,000 Over 10 Years

Published

The mainstream press recently made Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James into a God-like figure for “building a school” for at-risk youth in Akron, OH.

“‘I Promise’ will eventually cost about $8 million a year to run out of the district’s regular budget, covered mostly by shifting students, teachers and money from other schools, the district says,” according to Cleveland.com.

“I Promise” is the name of “James'” school.

This is not to knock James, who is donating $2 million to the fund the school, and without whom the “school would have never happened,” according to district Treasurer Ryan Pendleton.

Rather, this is about the press, who left out the minor detail that over the course of the school’s existence, a majority of the bill will be footed by Akron taxpayers.

According to Cleveland.com: 

I Promise is a district school. It’s not a private school or even a charter school, a form of public schools that are funded with tax dollars but are privately-run.

Though James will have a huge influence on the school, I Promise will be run by the district. It’s a district-owned building. The district will hire and pay the teachers and administration. Kids will ride district buses to school. And they will all eat the free breakfast and lunch the district gives all students.

I Promise will eventually cost about $8 million a year to run out of the district’s regular budget, covered mostly by shifting students, teachers and money from other schools, the district says.

“He did a lot, but taxpayers should know it’s their investment too,” said district spokesman Mark Williamson. “The coverage made it look like the whole thing is his.”

Now why would the media do that?

Likely because James has an ongoing feud with the right-wing media, including Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, who infamously told him to “shut up and dribble” on her nightly program, and President Donald J. Trump, who bashed James and CNN host Don Lemon on Twitter.

“Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!” Trump wrote.

The attack was immediately deemed “racist,” though Trump said “I like Mike” in a reference to Michael Jordan.

The leftist-dominated mainstream press is conniving. They understand that politics is downstream from culture. By vilifying Trump, which they do on a daily basis, and elevating James, they win political capital for Democrats, which is their intended goal.

That is why they failed to report that most of “James'” new school will be funded by the taxpayer, like every other poorly-run inner-city public school in America.

VIDEO: Dana White Devastates New York Times Hack After Successful UFC Pay-Per-View

White put the fake news in their place.

UFC promoter Dana White has been dogged by fake news reporters for pushing to continue his fights during the coronavirus panic, as they have worked at every turn to stop him from giving his fans what they want.

“A lot of these media guys are absolute and total f**king scumbags,” he said last month. “As soon as you let them know what you’re doing, all they’re trying to do is f**k up everything that you’ve worked. So I’ve literally told every one of these guys to go f**k themselves and I’m not telling any of them what I’m doing, where I’m doing it.”

The push back from fake news hacks and Democrat Party officials eventually forced White to cancel several shows, but he held the ultra successful UFC 249 pay-per-view on May 9. They drew a massive 700,000 buys for the event as the public grows more disgusted with the unprecedented shutdown of society.

“We absolutely destroyed it,” White said to Yahoo Sports via the telephone on Monday. “It was a home run by every measure. The early trends were good and they continued.”

The fake news media is very angry that White was able to hold a successful show despite their complaining. There have been prominent hit pieces published about the organization in the days following the event.

White’s response is classic and shows exactly how an individual or an entity should deal with the fake news vultures when under attack.

“F**k that guy… F**k that guy,” White said of the New York Times reporter who wrote an article critical of the UFC.

“You know what happened with that guy? That guy, who has never covered the sport ever before, was writing a story about [UFC parent corporation] Endeavor… and what do you think happened when this guy who and this paper covered the UFC when they never covered it before? What do you think happened? F**kin’ story was huge. They did killer traffic,” White explained.

White explained how the popularity of his organization was propping up the failing rag that is hemorrhaging money and going bankrupt rapidly.

“Now they’re writing stories three a week, and they’re posting live results. I don’t give a s**t what that guy thinks, what he has to say, or what he writes. Good for him, he’s pulling good traffic,” he added.

“I don’t give a f**k. Don’t give a f**k,” White said to conclude his rant.

White has set a great example to anyone who must deal with journalistic parasites. His defiance has put them in their place and humiliated them on a grand scale.
