REPORT: Linda Sarsour Raised $160k for Synagogue Shooting Victims, Only $10k Was Donated

Published

on

According to an Israeli strategist, Linda Sarsour of Women’s March fame raised $160,000 for the victims of the Tree of Life Synagogue shooting, but only $10,000 of that money was actually by the synagogue.

“Correction: ~$160K was raised as part of one general cemeteries campaign that pre-dates the TOL massacre and ~$240K was raised as part of the TOL campaign after the massacre. The $10K was from the first campaign. I was wrong about the 10%, still troubling,” said Hen Mezzig on Twitter.

Mezzig originally said that Sarsour raised $400,000 for the Tree of Life Synagogue victims. But pocketing $150,000 after fundraising off a tragedy is no better than pocketing $390,000. It is still a major scam.

Mezzig also blasted The Forward, which he described as a propaganda arm for Sarsour, for a deceptive article written to protect Sarsour.

“The propaganda arm (The Forward) tried to twist it, in another deceiving article by the ever so smart journalist, [Aiden] Pink, but the truth is clear,” he said.

The article, though is still very clear. It quotes CelebrateMercy founder Tarek El-Messidi who co-organized the campaign with Sarsour. He said that of the total amount raised off of the tragedy, all but the $10,000 will be distributed to the Islamic Center of Pittsburgh, not to Tree of Life:

To that end, El-Messidi said on Tuesday, one of his employees had that very day mailed a $10,000 check to Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh, where 11 people were killed last month. He hopes the money will be used to repair the building, which was damaged with bullet holes from the shooting. He predicted it would arrive in Pittsburgh on Saturday.

That donation is separate from the second, $238,634 campaign, initiated to help victims of the shooting and their families. It reached its goal of $150,000 in 50 hours; El-Messidi wrote at that point that he would send that amount to the Islamic Center of Pittsburgh to be distributed locally, and the rest would be kept for “projects that help foster Muslim-Jewish collaboration, dialogue, and solidarity.”

Back in 2017, Sarsour and El-Messidi ran a fundraising campaign together, allegedly to raise money for fixing a vandalized Jewish cemetery, which came under fire for similar questionable allocations of cash.

In her typical anti-Semitic way, Sarsour blamed “right-wing Zionists” for the controversy, and denied that the funds were improperly allocated.

‘WHAT A DISASTER:’ Iowa Caucus Results Delayed in Vote Count Catastrophe

The nation is left with more questions than answers on the night of the Iowa Caucus.

Published

on

The Iowa Caucus was intended to kick off the Democratic Presidential primary by highlighting candidates with a credible shot of winning the nomination.

Instead, the first-in-the nation caucus seems to be more representative of the Democratic Party’s incompetence, after results for the caucus are delayed for an unforeseen “quality assurance” tabulation process. The development has many election hawks and Democrats howling mad, with many suspecting the DNC is dipping into its bag of old tricks with the hopes of blunting or preventing a Bernie Sanders victory in the caucus.

There are many reports of caucus precinct coordinators being totally ignored when trying to report the results of their local caucuses to the Iowa Democratic Party. At least one caucus organizer was outright hung up on by the party when he called in to report results- while speaking to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer live on air.

The mass of confusion is being traced to the failure of an app designed to report results. Iowa Democrats simply explained the unusual delay as the result of “inconsistencies,” offering little to no in depth explanation for what seems to be third world election practices.

Although we’re inexplicably left without any vote tallies the night of the election, exit polls and crowd sizes suggest that polling frontrunner Sanders has a strong chance to win. Pete Buttigieg also appears set for a strong second place performance. Sanders expressed confidence in a strong performance when addressing his supporters in the state.

Former Vice President Joe Biden appears slated for an embarrassment, outright failing to advance to the “viable” stage in many precinct and regional caucus. It’s not entirely impossible that Biden finishes fourth in the primary, a surprise development that would leave the candidate many assumed to be an easy frontrunner for the Democratic nomination struggling as he lags to New Hampshire and later primary states.

MSNBC talking heads could be overheard referring to the caucus as a “disaster” in a some capacity in leaked audio.

As of late Monday night, the Iowa Democratic Party is yet to report any vote results, let alone declare a winner. Big League Politics is continuing to monitor the situation.
