New Reports Show that Large Amounts of Foreign Funny Money is Going into American Universities

Published

on

According to a nonprofit based in D.C., universities failed to disclose $1 billion in foreign funding.

Now reports indicate that the disclosures were “massively incomplete.”

College Fix provided a breakdown of these findings.

Of the $1 billion, “About one-third came from countries known for their influence operations in America,” according to a report from the Clarion Project,  whose research stands against “Islamism, white supremacy, neo-Nazism, Antifa and other extremist ideologies.”

The projected discovered that China was the top country in terms of its level of previously unreported data. The numbers showed that $144 million came “from the Communist country across 48 American institutions over the last six years, the project found.”

Such reports are relevant due to the Department of Education’s crack down on the failure to report foreign funding.

Alexander Pease of The College Fix noted the following:

Newly reported income by universities from Saudi Arabia amounts to $70 million, and dates back as far as 2013. Some of the data from Turkey is just as old, with $8.5 million initially left hanging across half a dozen U.S. universities.

Pease added:

Initially unreported data from the United Arab Emirates totaled $16.6 million across eight schools. Russia’s appearance on the list was solely due to a $500,000 gift that New York University belatedly reported from 2018.

Apparently, three universities failed to disclose a total of $117 million of funding originating from Qatar.  Pease noted that “Most of that figure is made up of funds Georgetown and Texas A&M University failed to report and are already under investigation by the federal government.”

Alex VanNess, co-author of the Clarion Project report, speculates that the lack of disclosure of foreign funding is the result of the previous administration not caring “about foreign funding” and had a “lackadaisical view” when dealing with income monitoring.

The topic of Chinese influence is rather heated at the moment.

Pease highlighted the following aspect of the influence of China’s infamous Confucius Institutes:

In its first foreign funding data filing in at least six years, Xavier finally reported $896,391 from China (“Confucius Institute Headquarters”) going back to 2013. Various senators have characterized Confucius Institutes as Chinese government operations to collect intelligence and access American research, as well as spread Chinese communist propaganda on campus.

China’s growing financial presence at American universities has made several elected officials concerned, which Pease called attention to:

Last year, a Senate Homeland Security subcommittee released a report looking into the influence of foreign funding in U.S. universities, citing several problematic elements of Confucius Institutes on American campuses.

A number of Senators have recommended that universities put the clamps on these institutes:

Several senators have recommended that universities shut down their institutes on campus. Arizona State University is among the schools that shuttered its institute after being denied a Pentagon waiver, the result of a 2018 law that bars federal defense money from Chinese-language programs at schools with Confucius Institutes.

All things considered, China will likely use universities, which are already leftist, as a way to continue to push for policies that undermine the American polity. From the advocacy for the gutting of the right to bear arms to pushing for political correctness, many leftist organizations can potentially become strange bedfellows with Chinese subversives who seek to pursue common goals of undermining American institutions and traditions.

For that reason, migration from China must be halted and Confucius Institutes must be completely shut down.

No Compromise Gun Lobby Calls Out Congress to Oppose Federal Gun Grab

Published

on

On July 30, 2020, the National Association for Gun Rights raised awareness about gun control legislation introduced by Virginia Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine.

Under the “Virginia Plan to Reduce Gun Violence Act of 2020”, the federal government would implement a series of gun control measures that were recently enacted in the state of Virginia. In their press release, NAGR argued that this plan would “strip law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment and due process rights.”

At its core, the “Virginia Plan to Reduce Gun Violence Act of 2020” will effectively nationalize Virginia’s new gun control laws. This will include the state’s “red flag” gun confiscation order, a one-handgun-a-month law, and a ban on private gun transactions between lawful gun owners. Virginia’s gun grabs kicked off protests from tens of thousands of gun owners at the state capitol in Richmond, Virginia early in 2020. NAGR noted that “Senators Kaine and Warner want to impose them on the rest of the nation.”

“Just when law-abiding citizens are purchasing firearms in record numbers to protect themselves and their families, tone-deaf Democrats are squealing for more gun control,” declared Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights.

Brown announced that his staff is already working to mobilize more than 4.5 million National Association for Gun Rights members and supporters to reach out to Kentucky  Senator Mitch McConnell and the Republican-controlled Senate to oppose this gun control scheme and all other gun grabs.

“With police stations literally on fire and criminals taking over our streets, it should be clear that citizens are responsible for defending ourselves,” remarked Brown. “Gun control is never a good idea and pushing it right now is sheer insanity.”
