When litigator Roberta Kaplan speaks to the Jewish community about her ongoing work in the Sines v. Kessler lawsuit, it is always sold as a selfless crusade to shut down the “Nazis” that marched in Charlottesville when the First Amendment failed to.

What Kaplan fails to mention is how much her small law firm, Kaplan, Hecker, & Fink LLP, is charging Amy Spitalnick’s non-profit for this display of barratry.

The 2017 and 2018 financial records for Spitalnick’s 501(c)(3), Integrity First For America (IFA), reveal that they are in poor financial health thanks in part to Kaplan’s 30-person boutique having billed them a sum of $4.1 million for the legal circus.

Of $8.9 million dollars raised in 2018, $8.2 million were spent on Kaplan and company ($3.2 million), another law firm called Boies Schiller-Flexner ($1.6 million), and among other expenses, a $725 an hour private investigation firm named Nardello and Co LLC ($961,457).

Spitalnick has previously addressed IFA’s high security expenses, which she blames on supposed threats from the “Nazis” they are suing. But Nardello and Co, listed as the provider of their “security services,” is actually known for the retired spies, ex-federal prosecutors, bankers and former government officials they use to pull strings to help rich people tip the scales in court.

A 2009 New York Daily News profile of Nardello and Co describes the company’s services as utilizing a global network of contacts to contain celebrity scandals, help wealthy criminals avoid prosecution, and bolster lawsuits.

While IFA’s most recent 990 form is not yet available, there are signs that their lavish spending is starting to catch up to them. Numbers crunched by Cause IQ show that IFA’s assets to liabilities ratio is abysmal. Last December, speculation about the lawsuit taking its toll on IFA increased when the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) suddenly announced it would help bankroll their efforts in Sines v. Kessler.

The Money Slushing Around

According to laws governing tax-exempt organizations, individuals in a decision-making role over nonprofits are banned from inurement — paying themselves large fees from money raised as a charitable donation.

While IFA does not formally list Kaplan as an employee, a Politico report dating back to its October 2017 founding revealed that Kaplan “spearheaded” the organization’s creation and personally recruited its staff.

Kaplan Hecker & Fink LLP eats up the largest amount of IFA’s revenues — by a lot. Kaplan’s independent firm opened its doors just four months before IFA’s founding.

Alan Levine, an elite trial lawyer and partner at ‘BigLaw’ powerhouse Cooley LLP, has been increasingly present as a litigator in Sines v. Kessler filings since the ADL decided to jump on board as a sponsor. Levine, who legal experts consulted by National Justice believe charges more than $1,000 an hour, is an award-winning member of the ADL.

These revelations about Integrity First for America leave many unanswered questions. At best, Jewish ethnic activism is one of many motivations.

What’s certain is that no matter the outcome of the trial, which was moved to April 2021, the plaintiffs are unlikely to see much of the money awarded to them from the largely indigent and bankrupt defendants if they win.

While many Sines v. Kessler plaintiffs are frauds, some did have hospital bills related to the James Fields incident.

If IFA was interested in aiding them, why didn’t they offer to just give them the money or help pay their college debt?

Instead, they will be spending what may amount to more than $10 million dollars in giveaways to their friends, making rich Jewish lawyers even richer while the people they represent get nothing.

    I am amazed at how ghoulish and disgusting the villains look in the modern day. Like their ugliness is a direct reflection or measurement of their inner vileness. Whether it’s a jogger mugshot after he guns down a little white boy, a soc-prog AWFL with colored hair or a Jewish lawyer pilfering other people’s coffers, it’s always someone who is ugly inside and outside to match who is responsible for this shit.

    It is funny how, in the aftermath of the Go Woke, Go Broke, implosion of The Drudge Report, the suddenly very popular normie conservative websites like the Gateway Pundit bend over backwards to attempt to avoid mentioning the largely Jewish control and support for BLM and Antifa. Instead the GP implicates Islamists, the BDS movement, low level far left Democrats Finkle-Think and of course the Chicoms.

    I obviously do not think that the GP staff or that matter 90% of its readership believe anyone but the Jews along with their operatives in the Deep State, the Democratic party establishment and Woke Capital are using BLM/Antifa to push their agenda.

    I mean really here is the GP today juxtaposing these two stories: https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/10/unhinged-umass-professor-ester-shapiro-caught-video-calling-trump-nazi-child-molester-belittles-student-disagrees-video/
    https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/10/new-video-supports-initial-observations-blm-connected-democrats-communists-terrorists-china/

    By now doesn’t 80-90% of Alex Jones audience, not to mention Tucker’s, suspect that all of the rantings about the Chicoms is just a placeholder/dog whistle for the JQ? It is increasingly obvious but everybody is hesitant to say it less they commit a thought crime. So the Finkle-Think is still working but the dam is primed for bursting.

    A great meme would be of Monty Python’s Eric Idle’s Wink Wink Nudge Nudge man whispering “Chicoms”. I think it would be a huge hit. Just retweet it to every blue checkmarked Jew ranting about Orange Man Bad or how White Supremacists are the real rioters..

    What will happen? My bet is that less bright Jews themselves or at their dim-witted Shabbos goy allies will start a massive kvetch storm and give the whole “Chicom” Finkle-Think misdirection ruse away.

    If this works it would an ideal strategy for using social media to combat Finkle-Think. The inherit problem or vulnerability of Finkle-Think is its very Jewy-ness, that it simply does not hold up to too much scrutiny or gross over use.

    Another thought….

    The weather is starting to turn, since Memorial Day the mid-level BLM/Antifa peaceful protester army “non-coms” and enlisted ranks have been criss-crossing the country of the behalf of their Jewish master and officer class.

    These low level street riot organizers have been living in tents, flea-bag motels, broken down buses and RV’s. In Portland and Seattle the cities have constructed hidden tent cities to help keep Antifa on site. The protesters when they do bath, it is using a bucket or whenever the shower truck shows up.

    The Jews and the Democratic establishment are now counting on these very folks to continue their street activism through late fall and winter having placed all their bets on a contested election. And lets be honest some of the really hard core BLM/Antifa have been living this way most of the year since Charlottesville.

    So ….

    How about somebody showing up at Roberta Kaplan’s law firm and taking photos of the luxury cars in the parking lot. Check out what restaurants they are eating at. The grift has to be stupendous.

    Retweet the evidence of the grift of the BLM/Antifa big-wigs. Get this stuff on Tucker Carlson.

    Like Kevin Macdonald says, the Jews create their Golem, and then can not help themselves in pushing it to the extreme and even abusing it. Jew being the parasites they are, feed off their Golem as well as the society at large. So it is a huge mistake for the Alt-Right to fight the Golem directly. But we should be able to turn the Golem against its masters.

    Another great example of “Chicom” Finkle-Think from the Gateway Pundit sighting Breitbart.

    PROOF that Tech Giants Facebook, Twitter and Google Are Using Chinese-Marxist Style Social Media Censorship on US Conservatives
    https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/10/proof-tech-giants-facebook-twitter-google-using-chinese-marxist-style-social-media-censorship-us-conservatives/

    This is China Marxism at work in America.
    In less than 6 years the tech giants have destroyed freedom of speech in America.

    Google, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc. are the enemy of the people.
    They are the enemy to truth and freedom.

    Gosh Mark Zuckerberg must be the most pasty faced Chinaman on the planet. Who would have thought?

    The memes write themselves,

    If Paul Ryan can blush with pride when told by Henry Louis Gate Jr that he is 3% Jewish, I can not see why Zuckerberg, Brin, Page, Dorsey and Wojcicki should be ashamed of openly celebrating their at least 97% Chinese ancestry.

    Another meme, Zuckerberg in the place of LeVar Burton in the Roots scene of Toby/Kunte Kinte getting whipped, Whats your name? LONG DUK DONG!!!!

    Gee, guess what will happen, a bunch of prize Chinese American STEM grad students will take to social media screaming about how Zuckerberg, Brin, Page and Wojcicki are all Jews.

    The woke mob must be urged to tell the (((white supremacists))) over at (((Breitbart))) to stop the anti-Chinese bigotry now.

    Who’s the ugly guy with the earstuds?

    There ought to be a law against – öh – – lawyers. Or maybe two, if necessary.

    On a more serious note, I since ages dream of a juridical indicator. It would show, how much of the GDP in a society goes to – lawyers, judges etc. You should be able to judge from the data in such an indicator, how humane and functional a given society is.
